When I started this blog in January, it was my hope that it would evolve into a resource for those moving to the Reston area — in terms of housing information, community news and new development, events, real estate advice and more.
Since then, I am humbled to say that my business has taken off and left me with less time than I’d imaged to dedicate to this blog. So, for the next two weeks I will be writing fervously, putting together the posts I’ve always wanted to have, curating information about the area and really re-starting this blog and launching it to be what I wanted in the first place.
In the weeks and months ahead, you’ll see more posts from local small business owners who serve the Reston area, gain a better insight as to what national real estate news means on a local level and learn more about what lies ahead for our ever-growing neighborhoods. I hope you’ll share these posts with others and provide me feedback about what else you’d like to see.

How much have home values changed during the past year? That’s probably the question we’re most often asked. Here’s a direct answer: the average sales price in the metro D.C. area is up 1.2% from this time a year ago.
And how does that relate to the value of your home? It doesn’t. Market conditions vary from area to area, and we think the recent market activity in three “cities” illustrates this perfectly.
Editor’s note: Champagne Services changed its name to Rescue Me Cleaning in March 2017.
Moving to Reston is interviewing members of the community who are a part of small businesses that serve the Reston area. Up next is Geoff Crawley of Champagne Services, a chemical-free, organic house cleaning company. Champagne Services is a member of the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce.
