31 Baby Elephants!

Wet African Elephant

How much do 31 Baby Elephants weigh?

(And what does that have to do with real estate?!)

Well, our Keller Williams Realty McLean/Great Falls office recently celebrated RED Day. It’s a day where we put away our cell phones & laptops, step out of our cars and away from our desks – and we contribute to our communities. RED stands for “Renew, Energize, Donate”. We give where we live.

Red Day 2014 KW Mclean Great Falls

As we have for a number of years, we set up camp at the Giant Food store in McLean and the Safeway in Great Falls; and spent the day collecting cash, gift cards & desperately needed items (like diapers, food & paper products) for SHARE of McLean. SHARE ministers to the working poor, to families & to the elderly – all of whom are local.

Well – the numbers are in. We collected 6,210 pounds of food, diapers & paper products (plus $1,657 in cash & gift cards). That weighs as much as 31 baby elephants at birth!

A big THANK YOU to all of our clients, customers, friends, family & fellow community members for your generosity. YOU opened your hearts and our community is a better place because of people like you!

(PS – Stay tuned! If you’re a golfer, spa goer or would like to be a sponsor for our KW Charity Gold Tournament to raise money for Stop Soldier Suicide, email The Belt Team!)

Selling Your Family Home

Home For Sale Near Dunn Loring Metro

You were young & in love and it seems like yesterday that you moved into the home you raised your 5 children in. 40 years later, it’s time to move.

  • “Could time have really flown by so fast?”
  • “How did we accumulate so much “stuff”?”
  • “Do we really need to paint before we put the house on the market?”
  • “What else do we need to do to prepare?”
  • “How much will our home sell for?”
  • “What is “staging”?”
  • “All the memories . . . Christmas mornings . . .Thanksgiving dinners. Where will the family gather next year?”

These are the kinds of things that might be going through your head when it’s time to right-size and move out of your family home. It’s probably what Claire & Aime Fountaine were thinking a few months ago when they started thinking about selling their home in Vienna.

So – if you’re in this same part of the process, let’s let Claire & Aimee tell you what it’s like to reach the finish line. There really IS light at the end of the tunnel!

(And if you want a place to start – try out our FREE INSTANT home valuation tool. It will give you a ballpark figure you can start with. Then call (703) 242-3975 to schedule a consultation and we can talk in more specifics.)

Top Vienna Real Estate Team

Aime and I had lived in our home for 40 years but it was time to move on. From the time we called Gail Belt, I could not have been happier. Gail is very detailed oriented and she was very sensitive to our situation, but professional and right on with her decisions. I told her from the beginning, you are the “expert” and we will go with your suggestions. Whatever she suggested, we took her advice and she listened to our needs. I wanted to have Easter without realtors going through the house. Thursday after Easter, the house went on the market. It had a lot of traffic because you can walk to Dunn Loring Metro. It not only sold in 4 days at the price Gail set, but it was sold with no contingencies at $25,000 above asking price and they gave us free rent back for 30 days, again at Gail’s suggestion! Gail does not work alone in this process she has a great team called the “Belt Team”, if Gail is not available you will hear from Patty Schuebel a very dedicated Team member and the rest of the ” team” works behind the scenes. In all our sadness of leaving our home of 40 years, we are delighted that a young family with 3 small children will now occupy this lovely home. Thank you Gail and the Belt Team. You are the best “Team” ever!

Claire & Aime’s daughters were also involved, looking out for their Mom & Dad, and helping clean & prepare the house. Here’s what their daughter had to say:

Gail and The Belt Team did a fantastic job selling my parents home of 40 years. I work in the sales office of a home builder in the same town as my parents home. I understand the process of selling a home and as their daughter I also relate to the emotion that is involved with leaving a home of 40 years. Although I have not had the opportunity to work with Gail the professional realm, this was a delightful experience. I did not hesitate to have The Belt Team list the home based on their stellar reputation. Unnecessary as it was professionally, I remained hands on throughout the process (as a daughter) to ensure every detail was attended. I’ve seen a lot of agents “wing it” on home purchases/sales. This is NOT how the Belt Team approaches real estate. The entire team is involved so calls are answered, attitudes are professional, details are clear, leaving no gaps in the process what-so-ever.

The Fountaine Family is an institution at St. Mark Catholic Church in Vienna and have helped SO many people over the years. It was TRULY our pleasure to serve them. Our Mission Statement at The Belt Team is “Changing Lives For The Better”. If it’s time to change YOURS, give us a call at (703) 242-3975. We’ll make sure you make the RIGHT move!
