Welcome, I am a licensed Agent in Virginia and partnered in D.C. + Maryland! I have teamed up with Broker Louise Molton of RE/MAX West End in Falls Church City.
If you have followed the blog over the last 8 plus years you know that my husband, James Thompson, and I have a shared love affair with Real Estate, renovation and all things DIY. James has been in Commercial Real Estate in D.C. and Virginia for over 20 years and I grew up with a father that loved to invest in Real Estate.
For those of you that are newer to STYLISH PATINA a little bit about me. I was raised in Falls Church City where my shop, Stylish Patina Home + Gift, is located. I am truly a native of Northern Virginia and Falls Church City. The home I grew up in my dad bought from the city and it was so far overgrown and out right nasty and in disrepair I’m sure they were lucky to sell it back then. This was 40 years ago before there was HGTV + and the fixer upper craze just those few risk takers out there that saw the upside to buying a heavily distressed property in a great area. My poor mother with 2 young kids was roped into stripping wall paper and attempting to clean up this house on the weekends with friends in the hopes of transforming this “money pit” into the home they now adore (seriously my mom is never going to leave that house). So I guess you could say Real Estate is in my blood.
James and I have purchased and fixed up four houses in the Falls Church / Arlington area over the past few years and are always on the hunt for our next project. Back in the good old days James and I did more of the work on our fixer uppers ourselves, now we tend to use contractors we know and trust. If finding a fixer upper is something you have been interested in but didn’t know where to start now we are in a position to help. If you are looking for investment properties we are always on the look out. I love new builds as well if you are looking for the perfect custom home for your family I’d love to assist and can even help pick out finishes if you are building from scratch!
Buy and selling a home can be stressful and I want to make it more enjoyable for folks and provide a resource that can assist in more than just the basic transaction.
