My name in Peggy James and I am a local real estate agent who services the Lake Ridge Virginia and Woodbridge Virginia area's.
The first one that comes to mind was the man who called one cold January morning. He was frustrated, mad at the world and just could not understand why his house did not go to settlement again. He called after reading my blog and said "can you help me?"
Sometimes it's not who you know, it what a person knows that can help you successfully sell your home. I listed this gentleman's home, negotiated an offer and it went to closing in less than 60 days! His situation was a bit complicated...Read More ...
This next caller was from my own neighborhood. That said, I did not know the folks personally. They had seen that I had sold homes in the Westridge Subdivision neighborhood over the years however they had already relocated to another state. They kept tabs on things from afar. I received a call from them that they were coming in town and they were interviewing three agents. We met, and the reason they choose me was because of my passion for the neighborhood and my past marketing efforts online. Guess what? The house sold in less than 14 days in the dead of winter!

In my humble opinion "Maketing Matters!"
This next success story is one I am very proud of. The owners of this Dale City Virginia home called after reading several post on Lake Ridge Virginia Real Estate News Blog. They called and asked me to come over. They too interviewed several agents. Their home was lovely from top to bottom. The challenge, there were several distress properties on their street that were vacant and run down. The good news is the home SOLD in ten days with multiple offers and it appraised! Erick Blackwelder helped these folks buy a home closer to their places of work. So don't just assume your home value is in the toilet because there are foreclosures and short sales on your street. Call me...let's explore your options. Read More
This next caller called and said, we lost our home to foreclosure in California a little over three years ago. We have really worked hard to get our credit back on track. We don't know the area well. Can you help us find a new place to call home here in the Woodbridge Virginia area.
It didn't take long. All that was needed was to put them in touch with a good local lender who handles VA Loans. This family got to purchase a like new home for only a few thousand dollars out of pocket. They got to hit the RESET Button and start their home ownership dreams again. Read more
One day I received a call from a local woman. She said, I met you about a year ago at an Open House, since then I have been following you on your blog. We agreed to meet. She stated that she and her husband had been looking for a long time. After a few home showings it became chrystal clear what the challenge was. They were not from the area. They had relocated and were unfamiliar with the floor-plans, builders and homes in the area. They wanted a home with high ceilings, the kitchen and family room across the rear of the home, however they wanted it in Lake Ridge Virginia. The challenge was....many of the homes in Lake Ridge are older than 1989 when builders started building with those features. These folks took the long road to their dream home. Read more
Another success story is a renter who called. She was really frustrated that she was living in an home that was not updated yet they were paying top dollar for it based on other homes in the area. The caller has gone to an Open House in the neighborhood. The home was just like her only it was totally updated. She called a friend, who said, check Peggy James out she write a blog. She is helping us. She is great. So she went Online found me and called. The very next day I met with her,wrote up an offer and negotiated the offer. In thirty days she was the new owner of the home just a few blocks from where she was renting that other home
This next caller said. Peggy, I've just read your real estate blog. We like the way you market homes online. We see that you are getting homes sold in this market. Can you help us? We have tried several times to sell our home without success. What are we doing wrong.
We actually had to sell this home twice. The first buyers loan failed to close.
My next success story is a caller that called and said Peggy, I think we need your help. "My frustration is that I have been using a large Internet Company and they have been great at letting us in homes, However the person who is going to write my offer and help negotiate on my behalf does not know the house, or have any clue what I saw that might be a concern to me. It is very frustrating for us the buyer. I've read your blogs, and we think you are the agent who can help us find our home. Turns out a new home was exactly what they needed!
