Downtown Leesburg is a widely sought after destination for it's great dining and boutique shopping. And there are some great homes available in downtown Leesburg (I've got a few on my website's community page!)

But, if you want a neighborhood with amenities like a community pool and tennis courts, then you have to look at some of the neighborhoods that are just outside of the downtown area, but still potentially within walking distance! This video provides some insights into the neighborhoods like Exeter on the northeast side of downtown Leesburg including amenities and some recent pricing. And with summer swim season right around the corner... Go Exeter Eagles!!

For more details on living in this great community, be sure to check out the full Community page for Exeter on my website!

And if you're in the market to buy or sell your home, give me a call! I'd love to put all my energy, local knowledge and resources to work for you!

Just over 20 years ago my family moved to Leesburg in 2004. The first house we tried to purchase was in Kincaid Forest on the south side of Leesburg, highlighted in this video. I wish we had access to videos like this one when we were house shopping 20 years ago to help us! Be sure to check out my website for videos and details on even more of the great neighborhoods in this area! If you are thinking of making a move this year, give me a call! I'd love to work with you!

Continuing Education Class today - Topic: ETHICS. The National Association of Realtors has a CODE OF ETHICS each of its members must follow to ensure the public is best served. And, as part of keeping one’s real estate license up to date, realtors must attend a three hour course in Ethics every two years. Today’s class was taught by attorneys with which is an independent title company that operates throughout the DMV. I love working with on my contracts because she does an outstanding job for my clients in a very objective manner.

Many thanks to today’s sponsors for providing a terrific lunch, & - who are all terrific companies in their own right, offering buyers and sellers great services (lending, painting & moving) locally.

Best part of today was the training was held within walking distance of my office in downtown Leesburg, so I got to stretch my legs and enjoy a stroll on the W&OD trail to & from the session!

One of the many draws of living in Lansdowne is the proximity to the hospital complex. In fact, I sold a home here recently to a cardiologist that moved into the area specifically wanting to be near his patients! But, with 45 holes of golf, a nature park backing directly to the Potomac River, access to great shopping and dining, and over 2,500 homes, this community has so much more to offer! If you are thinking of buying or selling in this area, please give me a call! I'd love to work with you!

I have a new listing in Belmont Country Club coming up soon and wanted to share this video highlighting this awesome community. Belmont Country Club opened in 2001 by Toll Brothers who bought the original estate from IBM. Yes, IBM! But, the original estate dates back to 1799 and Ludwell Lee, the son of Richard Henry Lee, one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence... and the original home still stands today as part of the clubhouse!!!

The golf course was designed by Arnold Palmer and is surrounded by almost 2,000 homes inside of this gated community. Head over to my website at http://www.ChrissieGoodrum.com for all the details including active listings! And if you are thinking of listing your home, please give me a call! As a Sotheby's International Realtor, I know this area well and specialize in these types of communities!

Kevin came into my family’s life in 2010. We found him online - he was a puppy in Culpepper, VA. We had an Airdale (Maggie May) who was 10 years old at the time. Maggie was becoming a little old and we talked to our vet about bringing a younger dog to the family who could be a companion for her. Kevin, a Welsh Terrier, was full of energy and loved Maggie. He would try to latch on to her tail when they would run outside in the backyard. Maggie seemed to get a pep in her step as a result of this young dog, but she died a few years later and we were gutted.

Kevin was the “only dog” in our household for about 6 years and during this time, he would chase tennis balls, go swimming in the ocean, and even ride the occasional surfboard when we would go to the OBX. As a terrier, he had a big instinct to chase down smaller creatures and would occasionally kill birds, baby bunnies and attempt to even get groundhogs and beavers who would venture in our yard.

In 2018, we got our golden doodle, Charlie, as a 6 week old puppy. 🐶 Although Kevin wasn’t exactly nurturing, he grew to love his playmate and they became fast buddies chasing balls and catching waves. We made it a priority to teach Charlie how to swim and both Kevin & Charlie loved the beach.

About a year and a half ago, Kevin had minor surgery for a tumor. His hair was greying and he really started to slow down. We continued to take him to the beach and he would swim, but he could no longer go for regular walks. We attempted to push him in a stroller, but it didn’t take.

We said goodbye to our little terrier this week. We hope he is chasing after Maggie May and swimming at the beach.

This weekend I had the chance to take a look at some statistics for the 2023 Real Estate market in our region, review some lessons learned, and make some predictions for 2024 and some tips for Home Buyers and Sellers!

Here's my number one take away for Sellers... even though it was and will continue to be a Sellers Market, you still have to plan WAY ahead to optimize your sale and get the most return on your home sale. I worked with one seller for almost a year getting their house ready! I also have a network of trusted agents across the country and can help you relocate!

And for Buyers, the biggest take away is that you need to be prepared to compete against multiple other Buyers. Inventory is going to continue to be low! If you are NOT a cash buyer, you need to get your financing tight BEFORE you start to look at houses! You also should be working with an agent who understands your requirements and can show you homes and neighborhoods you may not have originally considered! I know this area very well and can provide you a ton of insights into where to look based on your needs.

Call or text me at 571-275-5556 and we'll have coffee and talk about your goals and review some tips and suggestions to get the most out of this market!

Special recognition to for providing my clients with my contact information. I sincerely appreciate your confidence in me and your referral!! Additional kudos to my professional stager () for providing my clients a staging consultation in the summer of 2022. Thank you to my Title attorney for all of her due diligence. THANK YOU to for helping my clients with some HOA issues that needed to be addressed on their 10 acre lot. Finally, thank you to the buyer’s agent for her professionalism & collaboration during the ratified contract/closing process.

Real Estate is a wild and wonderful business & I love working with great professionals to help my clients with their big moves as they transition to care for loved ones in other locations.

Looking forward to many more adventures in real estate in 2024!!!

As the new year approaches, the top paint companies have all announced their picks for the 2024 color of the year and we must say they are bold and intriguing. While some are useful for interiors, some…not so much. But is that really the point of the paint companies’ choices?

I got a little video of the Holiday Fine Arts & Crafts Show at Ida Lee going on today and tomorrow. It ends at 4pm both days. And shortly afterwards today, the town will be holding their annual Christmas Tree Lighting event in downtown Leesburg. It's right across from my office, so if you are attending the Tree Lighting, be sure to stop by my office for some hot apple cider to warm up! I'll also be hosting a couple of local artists showing off some really great artwork during the lighting! See you there!

I sat down with Karen E. Daily Ekofo last week to check out some of the latest trends in real estate contracting. What did we learn? It's still a STRONG sellers market! Every sale was at or over list price, and most sellers were giving few (concessions) still! We also looked at another disturbing trend, and that is FRAUD. Buyer fraud, seller fraud... you have to be the Sherlock Holmes of Real Estate!
