Welcome to our neighborhood real estate blog! I’m very excited to be part of this community and cover all sorts of topics regarding residential real estate and the market place. I’m here to answer your questions in a very honest, informative and hopefully fun way (who says real estate is boring!?).
Before we get started with our first Q&A, a bit about me — I moved from Peru to the D.C. area in 2004 and I’ve been in property management and real estate ever since. Falls Church resident, dog and cat lover, Redskins fan, new restaurant explorer and Zumba instructor. Some of my favorite places near Tysons:
- Casual Restaurant: Taco Bamba
- Happy Hour: Sea Pearl
- Dog friendly patio: Tysons Biergarten
- Date night spot: Nostos
- Music venue: Jammin Java
I have been collecting some great questions that I plan to answer over the coming weeks, and I can’t wait to hear yours also. If you’d like a question answered in my weekly column, please send an email to [email protected]. I hope to hear from you soon.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
