Small Business Saturday

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Small Business Saturday, November 24th.
After your Thanksgiving food coma subsides, head on out to promote the Small Businesses in YOUR community! Small Business Saturday is a day for everyone — from the business owners who create jobs to the customers who buy locally — to support small businesses that invigorate the economy and keep communities thriving.
It began in 2010 when American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. Last year, over 100 million people came out to shop at independently-owned small businesses on the day. Now, in its third year, Small Business Saturday will be even bigger. American Express is offering free and easy-to-use tools to help small businesses get the most out of the day and tools for consumers to show their support.
Meanwhile ~ Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Favorite Listings Friday - Great Falls, VA

Friday, November 16, 2012

It's favorite listings Friday! Each week, I choose 3 homes that are actively listed in my local MLS (multi-listing service). This week - We're taking a virtual visit to Great Falls, VA.
Great Falls – A Great Place to Live Situated on the Potomac River, Great Falls gets its name from the rushing falls on the river. At one point in history, a canal was built to circumvent these falls and at the Visitors Center, in the Great Falls Park, one can learn a great deal of the effort needed to do this, as well as viewing artifacts & old photos of days gone by. (info courtesy of Realtor, Mary Anderson.) Want to know more about Great Falls National Park:
Great Falls is located just outside of Washington DC, in Northern VA. I have chosen 3 homes to check out. They have all been listed for 2 weeks. #1 is offered for $1,250,000
This house is indeed for the nature lover with room for the horses to roam and where the deer come by to visit.
And...just in case you've always wanted that indoor pool!
House #2 is currently listed for $1,229,000
This home has a lower level, spacious game room.
It also offers this pleasant outdoor setting.
House #3 is listed for $1,399,000.
