Buying Guide

Developing Your Wish List

Looking for a home, unless you have unlimited funds, will usually involve making trade-offs about the features that a given home has when matched against your personal wish list. The one thing you should never compromise on is the LOCATION. It's the only thing you can't change! Fortunately, you’re looking in Reston and that’s a great start. My homebuyer's Wish List will help you to articulate what features you’d really like to have in your next home.

If you are already working with another broker, we respect that relationship and encourage you to continue it. If not, please fill this form out as fully as possible, submit it and I'll do the rest! If you have questions, feel free to contact me.
