As we look back on 2017 we want to take this opportunity to reflect on our blessings, and to enter into 2018 with a spirit of hope and optimism. 2017 was an eventful year for us both personally and professionally. December of 2016 brought us a wonderful Christmas present with the birth of our little boy. As you can imagine, this created quite the highlight reel for our family over 2017!

Along with that change, we had a shift that (mostly) took Bonnie off the front lines of real estate, but also gave us another addition to our real estate team in Amanda Ramos. She is a rockstar REALTOR who has been an enormous help to our team this year, and is also off to a blazing start in her real estate career. Amanda is a mother, wife to SFC EJ Ramos, and was a teacher in Fairfax county for more than 10 years. She is an Army spouse and recently acquired the certified status of Military Relocation Specialist! Go Amanda!

Our clients in 2017 represented a wide array of moves and transitions. We had families going from an over-crowded home into their dream home, several selling their first Northern Virginia home, first-time buyers, successful investors, and those selling their long-time family home and relocating to another area. We are SO thankful for the trust placed in us with each of these families. It wasn’t always easy, but with some hard work, many negotiations, and lots of honest conversations, we were able to get these families going where they wanted to be.

We are thankful for the friends and family that gave us the support we need by way of: referrals, a good word, or encouragement to achieve success. We can never take for granted the relationships we have built and the friends we have made in our quest to help current and future homeowners. It’s such a blessing to have a positive impact on so many people. We are thankful to be part of the Northern Virginia community, a place with a celebrated history and diversity. We love the people, the places, and the sense of community! We trust that you have been able to explore your surrounding area and have also been able to get out and meet your neighbors!

We hope that everyone has a safe and wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year. If you are traveling, be safe. If you have family visiting, stay sane! And as always, enjoy every moment. We wish good health and happiness to each of you in the coming year.

As always, if you or someone you know need help selling or finding a dream home in 2018, please do not hesitate to call us. Contact Jason at 703-298-7037 or SandersNoVA@gmail.com.
