JUNE 2023

Hello and Happy June! We hope this newsletter finds you well. We are here to deliver not only local real estate updates but also help you learn about what's happening in our own backyards.
May was another busy month for us and we currently have all of our listings sold or under contract. We are always ready to help buyers and sellers in our area and we offer complimentary staging for all of our listings which has produced excellent results and made for very happy clients. We believe there are always real estate opportunities and we love helping our clients find them. Take a look below to read about what we have been up to and we hope to see you soon at one of the many wonderful events in our area.
Eryn, Colleen and Lucy



Just Sold Off Market in Downtown Leesburg

It helps to work with a local Realtor: We are proud to announce the recent sale of 211 Andover Ct, Leesburg, VA 20176 at $900,000. During a very strong seller's market we found this property for our purchaser off-market - it was never in the MLS or listed publicly. Homes walkable to downtown Leesburg in perfect condition are always in high demand and our client was thrilled not to overpay or enter a bidding war. A stunning home built in 1996 by Paul Reimers and beautifully recently renovated - take a peek below - one of our favorite Leesburg houses!
