...has to be The Festival of the Book!

This wonderful event is a Charlottesville tradition and this year includes an appearance by my friend and client Eleanor Henderson discussing her acclaimed first novel, Ten Thousand Saints.

Around the Web

My favorite recent webplaces to explore:

The NY Times Think Like a Doctor Series - for the "House" fan in you.

ITunesU - The actual content for this astounding free Apple product is available on Itunes. I have a pile of podcasts waiting in the cue for when I finish my French lessons...Which brings us to: - Where I found apartments rentals for my summer travels!

Western Bypass Simulation


I recently researched the upcoming Western Bypass for a client who was considering a home purchase a little under a mile away from the proposed path of this roadway.

I found this super Fly Through Simulation, courtesy of Charlottesville Tomorrow. (Scroll down the page to "Watch a video fly through of a rendering of the Western Bypass"). If you are at all interested in this project, this is a great way to really envision what it will be.

Did you see it??


One of my listings was recently featured on NBC's Today Show! Frankly, Barbara got quite a few of the facts wrong about the house ( and its location )! But overall, it was a great review. And this home has since gone under contract...

The Quickening Pace!

If you've run into me in the last few weeks, I may have mentioned to you how superheated the market has been lately, but here is a Nest Report post from early March which give you the numbers, along with our February 2012 Market Report.

The last few weeks have borne out the trend. Since this post was published, I have been involved in four more contract negotiations which were ratified: one was competitive (a multi-offer situation), three were homes which went under contract within a few days of coming on the market and all were homes which were perfectly prepared for the market and priced to sell!

School Focused MLS Search

Are you, or is someone you know, moving to relocate into a specific school in our area, check out my Home Search by School page.

This page lists the individual schools in Charlottesville and Albemarle, provides links to rating and to test score information on those schools, as well as to the school websites, and a map based home search for each school.

It's a great way to stay on top of listings in the school you favor.

All for now -
