University of Mary Washington

University of Mary WashingtonOne of the reasons I was compelled to move to the Fredericksburg area of Stafford was its close proximity to the historic city of Old Town Fredericksburg.  The museums, antiques, abundant little shops, cobblestoned sidewalks, and incredible charm were enough to win me over.  But there was another reason…the University of Mary Washington – or as it was formerly known prior to July 2004, Mary Washington College.

Having come from the college town of Towson, Maryland  – home of the Towson Tigers – I had found a sense of comfort coming to this area over 20 years ago.  The large oak trees, the sprawling campus amidst a small city, the quaint coffee shops, and gorgeous sports fields, all drew me here like a magnet.  Fall in Old Town Fredericksburg was positively captivating and the University of Mary Washington was a large part of the town’s charm.

Ranked #2 by US News & World Report of all Virginia public schools, the University of Mary Washington offers a variety of degree programs.

“The University of Mary Washington continues to be recognized as one of the nation’s best liberal arts and sciences institutions by such authoritative publications as U.S. News and World Report, Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges, The Fiske Guide to Colleges, and The Princeton Review.

Through the University’s undergraduate, residential College of Arts and Sciences on the Fredericksburg campus, students earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, choosing from over 30 majors, or creating their own major.

Through UMW’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies on the Stafford campus, the University also offers well-respected part-time professional undergraduate and graduate degree programs geared towards working adults.”

The University of Mary Washington is located midway between Washington, DC and the state capital of Richmond, VA.  It is located just south of the Rappahannock River and provides an environment rich in outdoor activities such as canoeing and kayaking; employment opportunities; entertainment, dining, and shopping are in abundance with Central Park within only a two mile radius of the campus!

About Quantico Homes

Working primarily as a referral agent, my main motivation is to be able to provide you the highest possible level of service as you look to buy or sell your home in the Northern Virginia Real Estate market. You should be so impressed with your service that you will feel compelled to refer me to your family, friends and colleagues. Our time together is always well spent meeting your specific needs because my time and effort is not spent looking endlessly to generate more business. As a Buyer's Agent, the buyer's criteria becomes paramount during the home buying process. Your needs will never be compromised because Dual Agency is not something I participate in. This is a distinguishing characteristic from many in the industry and I stand firm in the belief that no client in a transaction (whether a buyer or a seller) should be without 100% representation. You deserve all the loyalty and attention from an agent who will always have only your best interests in mind. Keeping in mind that Northern Virginia is a highly transient area, I am always privvy to sales reports and market analysis of all the surrounding counties from Alexandria/Arlington to as far south as Richmond County and from east on the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers to the Shenandoah (and all points in between!). Between the military, corporate, and government relocations, having an agent working to provide you with the latest statistical information and market trends is imperative to a successful sale or purchase. Also, as an e-Pro, finding you homes and communicating that to you becomes increasingly efficient, as does marketing properties for sale. Using exceptional photography for virtual tours, staging all listings, and incorporating "out of the box" methods to generate the largest number of buyer leads while Marketing Your Property For Sale, I can save you time, money and frustration.
