Clean, Open Areas Where Your Children Can Play – Stafford, Virginia Has It!

One of the primary reasons I moved to Stafford County, Virginia was because I wanted my children to have a safe environment in which to play and exercise. Some of my fondest memories as a child were of climbing apple trees in our neighbor’s yard, riding bikes, hiking through the woods, and pick up games of softball and kick-the-can during the spring, summer and fall. I wanted no less for my children.

Stafford County is centrally located between Washington D.C. to the north and the State Capital of Richmond to the south. The County is about 15 miles long from north to south and approximately 17 miles wide from east to west. The County begins from its northern tip at Exit 148 (South Quantico gate) off of I95 to its southern point just north of the Rappahannock River at Exit 133 off of I95. It borders the Potomac River and King George County to the east, Fredericksburg City and Spotsylvania County to the south, Fauquier County to the West, and Prince William County to the north.

Stafford enjoys the some of the state’s largest virgin forestland at Crow’s Nest. The County had officially petitioned the condemnation of this ecologically sensitive area in November of 2006 to be used solely “for a public park for passive recreational purposes”. “Virtually the entire Crow’s Nest peninsula is forested with a mature stand of mixed hardwoods that is considered one of the finest, if not the finest, example remaining in the coastal plain.” The Northern Virginia Conservation Trust

When I first came to Stafford County 1n 1988, I was captivated by the mix of suburban familiarity with area shopping, entertainment, and dining, and the charm of the predominantly rural and agricultural landscape. Today, while much has changed, our children’s recreational facilities have seen a tremendous shot in the arm by our local Representatives and Board of Supervisors.

Whether you enjoy history, museums, art and music, playgrounds, sports fields, swimming, boating, golfing or hiking, you will be pleasantly pleased with the wide variety of options and the high quality facilities available to you.

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.
