How appropriate for this Real Estate Market…..  Brian Buffini helps me to make lemonade out of lemons.  My clients have been the greatest this year and not only helped me with my success, but referred  others to me so they could take advantage of selling and buying homes when so many people are full of fear.  Winning is when confidence outshines fear and negativity.

Thank you for helping make this a great year. Yes, several hurdles with appraisal  issues, lending got tighter, inventory was less ( a good thing), and sometimes multiple offers made, but all in all, we all made it happen to our benefit.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

– Rudyard Kipling

We at Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. in Leesburg feel so fortunate to be the  the first  Real Estate Broker to be given the opportunity to preview the Village at Leesburg.

The Villages at Leesburg is very impressive and something that I think will make Leesburg proud.  The architecture and well thought out walk-ways, parking, and landscape are quite impressive.  Great Advertisment…

                                                    “LIVE & PLAY”

                                                                                                              “Welcome home to urban convenience and custom comforts.”

Who would have thought Leesburg would attract this type of lifestyle.  I am certainly glad it has!  You will be quite impressed.

Sorry it was a gloomy day, but you can imagine the area if it were a sunny afternoon.

Looking down Market Place

Looking down Market Place

The office space is something you definitely want to consider if you are looking to open a business in Leesburg.  Size ranges from 3,300-10,00 sq ft.  Upscale and designed to attract retailers and office tenants looking for “a signature” business location, you must consider this location.  Contact me  for pricing and more information.

                              The retail space is anchored by Wegman’s and LA Fitness.  According to their marketing division, retailers will find the exposure  and accessibility of  Route 7 ,  the 125,000 consumers within a five-mile radius, and  the average income of $120,000+ something to capitalize on when making a decision to move here.  70,000+ cars pass by this location each day..wow what exposure especially  if you can be seen for Route 7.

Thinking of moving into the area, presently, the Village of Leesburg is offering 355 luxury residential  apartments.  These are NOT your normal rentals.  Yes they are a bit more expensive, but the appeal of working and living in this area will not go unnoticed and will capture your heart.  The Metropolitan Apartments are oh so elegant!!!  They are right when they describe them  as being designed for comfort… graceful balconies, custom cabinetry, wonderful urban views ,and all with a new and vibrate lifestyle to go along.   I was able to snap a few photos; take a look at the 9″ ceilings, huge balcony, and designer kitchen.

Lookout Leesburg! 

The buzz about Wegman’s opening in Leesburg  is everywhere. 

                                     Opening When:  November 8th

                                I was shopping in their Sterling store this past  Sunday.  At the check out counter, I overheard a customer ask, when is your store opening in Leesburg?  She is from Round Hill, and like myself, makes weekly excuses to go to Sterling, just to shop at Wegman’s.

                                               You must check out their videos.  I made both their featured dishes Sunday, one to enjoy that evening, the other for a good home cooked meal during the week.  

This one is terrific!

This one is terrific!

Other stores will be opening after the new year.
Rumor has it, we might even get a first class movie theatre, too!
