When I speak with my colleagues, one thing is very clear, this has been a very busy summer.
Many of my buyers are bidding well over list price for homes and still losing out. Inspections and appraisals are being waived and I’m seeing record prices for homes. Tysons Corner has become known for its luxurious housing.
McLean & Great Falls are well known for their sprawling mansions, Vienna has transformed with large new homes replacing the small homes that many government workers once called home, and Falls Church City has a charm that buyers are willing to pay for.
This column even features the luxury homes that we see as we drive to work each day or check out online when they come on market. The homes we aren’t seeing as often are the great homes that are priced under $1M. These homes are becoming a rarity in our market and bidding wars are the norm when a home goes on market. If you’ve been considering selling your home, believe me, now is the time to call and get that house on market!
Today’s feature home features a beautiful pool and an even more beautiful lake view. This home features two owner’s suites, a fully remodeled kitchen, and the most beautiful outdoor space in Falls Church. Triathletes and swimmer’s — Lake Barcroft is a great place to get in your open water swim!

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.
