As we approach the spring season, your neighborhood real estate experts want to remind you to spring your clocks forward on March 8th and give your home a much needed spring cleaning.
WASH YOUR WINDOWS.
Be sure to pick a cloudy day to wash windows. If the day is too sunny, your window solution will dry too fast leaving streaks.
SCRUB DOWN OVERLOOKED SURFACES.
You may overlook these surfaces on a daily basis, but once a year, give your baseboards, door frames, and walls a good scrub.
DUST LIGHT FIXTURES.
Use a microfiber or lint-free cloth to dust fixtures and bulbs you can reach. For ceiling fans, skip the ladder and use an extendable duster. To clean grimy bulbs, lightly dampen your cloth with vinegar.
REMEMBER GUTTER MAINTENANCE.
When you consider that your roof's drainage system diverts thousands of gallons of water a year from your house's exterior and foundation walls, you can see why it meri ...

Have you ever been curious about investing in real estate? If you did not attend our investing seminar on Saturday, February 22nd, you truly missed some valuable tips to get you started in building wealth through real estate. Travis Lee and Martin Weldon, two of our expert agents and productivity coaches, discussed the risks and benefits of real estate investing in order to determine how and when to invest in resources that will produce financial security.
One thing you should note from the presentation is that real estate investing is not a “get rich quick scheme", instead it’s about getting the best possible return for your money. This can include purchasing homes to use as rental properties or purchasing with the intent to renovate the home for resale. One key component in the process is having your own team of experts prior to investing. Your team should consist of a real estate agent, lender, inspector, stager, contractor, and property management team. ...

This past Saturday, we had the privilege of hosting our first seminar of 2020. One of our elite buyer specialists, Daniel Walcott, alongside Brian Washington of PrimeLending and Katie Griffin of KVS Title, facilitated an awesome event that left our guests more knowledgeable and comfortable with the home buying process.
Did you know that it is possible to be classified as a first time home buyer even if this isn’t your first home purchase? Did you know that you only need a 580 credit score to be eligible to purchase a home? These questions, amongst others, were some of the questions that were discussed in addition to available home buying programs and mistakes to avoid in the process.
If you were not able to make our event and you wish to speak with an agent about the home buying process, please feel free to give us a call at 202-750-8000.
Our next event is our Semi-Annual Clothing Swap of maternity, infant, and children’s clothing. This event will; ...

MG Residential now brings together Bo and Kymber Menkiti of the Menkiti Group and Anthony and Lashika Mason of The Mason Team. Featured on the cover of the February issue of DC Metro Real Estate Producers, these couples joined forces to bring a higher level of service and resources to their clients.

The merge of the two groups comes with an expansion that allows more neighbors to be serviced from DC, Maryland, and Virginia. The alignment also allows both teams to accomplish goals of wealth building, results, ethics in service ...
