Every Thursday morning, I sit at a different local coffee shop. Come up to me and ask any real estate-related questions.

Thinking about renting, buying or selling in 2016? Relocating to the metro D.C. area soon and want to plan ahead? Wondering what your home is worth and what upgrades or renovations will give you the best bang for your buck?

Whether you are thinking about making a move this month or in a few years, I am happy to help.

Follow me on Facebook to learn where I’ll be this week.
