Coldwell Banker Ashburn to Merge with LEESBURG Office

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Yep… that’s right. Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Ashburn Dulles office will be merged this week and moved to their new location, combined with currently existing Coldwell Banker office in Leesburg. I don’t suspect Ashburn or Loudoun County members will mind much, however–especially when they find out they will only need to drive out Route 7 past 15 and head to the shopping plaza located right behind a Dulles technology corridor favorite restaurant chain RED, HOT, and BLUE. Personally, I am thinking this might be a great excuse to discuss real estate in our area over a long business lunch with some really great Northern Virgnia BBQ.

More information will be released shortly, and you all will know just as soon as I do.

Realtor.com shows online marketing surpasses all other media when it comes to marketing your home for sale.

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Just the facts… Realtor.com has been funding some really big research projects and has released that for the year 2008, people seeking information about the local housing market are 500% more likely to sell a home if it has been advertised on the Internet (rather than simply relying on the newspaper).  To those of us living in the Dulles Technology Corridor, this comes as no surprise; but for many people and agents in the housing markets nationwide, they are scratching their heads wondering why properties not aggressively marketed by Internet are not selling at as fast a rate…

With the release of these new stats that show the dramatic rise in popularity of the Internets, these same folks can look back with 20/20 vision in hindsight and say, “Who knew?”. To that I would just laugh and answer, “Anybody under 40 or anyone living in Loudoun County–that’s who.”

Cheers, everyone. May all your internet footprints be left in the soft sand of the virtual beach standing on the edge of the real estate marketing ocean. Thanks for the statistical support Realtor.com–those of us out here who love the net and all the positive life changes the web has the power to bring us are really grateful to you.

Loudoun Services for Deaf Residents and Hearing Impaired

Thursday, February 14, 2008

NVRC information excerpted from www.nvrc.org Loudoun County Information Section.

Joan Cassidy, Loudoun County Outreach Specialist

Joan serves the residents of Loudoun County in a number of ways; providing support groups, exhibiting at fairs, answering questions one-on-one, and advocating for better access and movie captions.  For more information for you or your business, organization or health care facility, call Joan at 703-444-0101 (Voice) or 703-430-2906(TTY) or email Joan Cassidy.   (See Joan’s monthly schedule.)

The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS and other authorities estimate that between 8.8% and 10% of the population is deaf or hard of hearing.  We think that for the Northern Virginia Metro Area it is probably closer to 10% because of the number of military personnel, the high levels of everyday exposure to noise, and the aging of the population. 

The current estimate for Loudoun County is 25,550 people with hearing loss.

LACHL’s mission is to strengthen and support families of deaf/hard of hearing infants and school-aged children in Loudoun County, VA.  We accomplish our mission by hosting monthly meetings to host networking opportunities among families and professionals.  In addition, we offer educational speakers at many of our meetings.  The LACHL meetings take place the 2nd Friday of every month from September – May.  Meetings are held at the Leesburg Executive Airport, 3rd floor conference room, beginning at 7:00 pm.  Everyone is welcomed to attend.  Refreshments and light snacks are provided.  If you would like to be included on the LACHL email distribution list for upcoming meeting notices and other pertinent items of interest, please send an email to mailbox@loudounhearing.org
