Last week I was lucky enough to receive an invite to JP Morgan Chase’s Newseum event with HGTV’s Property Brothers.
It was a fun evening, especially since finding fixer upper homes for clients is truly my favorite part of the job. It’s amazing to see the transformation of a home when you put your personal touches on it. I have helped clients pop the top of a home, do a gut remodel and even build brand new.
Remodeling a home or popping the top is a great way to get the home of your dreams without the big price tag. I work with a few amazing builders and designers in this area and you do get instant equity when you do the build/pop top/remodel yourself.
I have a neighbor finishing a home build now for a fraction of what the new builds are selling for in my neighborhood. It takes time and patience but what a great way to get your luxury home for less.
This week I’m featuring a home that has great potential! If you are interested in doing a remodel or pop top, call me to learn more about building your dream home. And a big thank you to JP Morgan Chase for the invite and this week’s inspiration!

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.
