About Samson

This is the Samson website with links and information about Northern VA Real Estate. A companion site to these pages is the NOVA Real Estate Blog. I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS, Virginia Association of REALTORS and the Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS. I have been a multiple recipient of the Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club and have qualified for the Top Producer Award for 2007. I am a licensed real estate agent throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. I am a member of the MLS serving all of Northern VA which is called Metropolitan Regional Information System or MRIS for short.

I was originally licensed as a real estate agent in 1990 and went to work with Samson Associates in Oakton VA. In 2002 I hung my license with Brookside Realty Group in Chantilly VA. Since the fall of 2005 I have been with Samson Realty LLC in Chantilly VA. Throughout my real estate career I have only worked under one managing Real Estate Broker, Mike Briggs.

Like most Northern Virginia Real Estate Agents I represent clients as both a Buyer Agent and Seller Agent. If you are selling a home Samson Realty offers four percent or four and a half percent listings. I provide a Free Competitive Market Analysis to assist Seller's in setting a List Price for their properties. I have decades of marketing experience and your home will be fully exposed to the real estate market including multi-photo packages, slide shows, virtual tours and considerable Internet exposure on all the most popular real estate portals.

For Buyer clients I offer Cash Back Rebates if approved by your lender and itemized on the HUD 1 at settlement. I work with a wide variety of Buyer's from First Time Buyers to Move Up Buyers to Down-Sizers to Investors.

If you are looking to purchase a new home there are many home builders with new home communities in this area such as: Toll Brothers, Centex Homes, Beazer Homes, NV Homes, Equity Homes, Brookfield Homes, Craftsmark, Winchester Homes,


Custom Homes, Basheer & Edgemoore, D.R. Horton, Drees Homes, Engle Homes, Gulick Homes, KHovnanian, M/I Homes, Miller and Smith, Pulte Homes, Richmond American Homes, Ryan homes, Ryland, Stanley Martin, and Washington Homes.

Northern VA has a wide variety of real estate to choose from with condos, townhomes, detached homes, executive estates, farmettes and working farms. With most of the inside the beltway properties built prior to 1970 we have traditional ramblers, ranchers and cape cods closer-in to Washington DC. The further out you explore for your new home the more modern the architectural styles and the newer the properties.

Whenever you consider a real estate sale or purchase you should familiarize yourself with the local real estate market. Of course you should be able to count on an experience real estate professional for advice and market trends. Are we in a Buyer's Market or a Seller's Market? What about the real estate boom of 2000-2005 or the Northern VA Real Estate Bubble that burst in 2006-2007? Does the market really matter? Are there always opportunities in every real estate market? As an experience real estate agent I would say "definitely YES!"

As we are about to enter 2008, there is a lot of good real estate for sale in Northern Virginia including: residential homes for sale, new home construction, investment property and even some raw land and lots for sale. The residential resale homes market has been very stable in the more affluent Northern VA communities. Short Sales, Pre-Foreclosures and Foreclosures have been more concentrated in lower valued single family, town home and condo neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of money in the rental real estate market. The time and effort helping a Landlord rent an investment property or helping a tenant find a rental condo, rental townhouse or rental home is just not adequately rewarded when time and effort are balanced against rental commissions. As a service to the public and to promote future business or serve future clients I attempt to assist in one rental transaction per month. Homes for rent, Rent to own, Rent with Option to Buy. Samson Realty has recently launched a rental property management division and I look forward to future assistance from within the Samson Realty.
