    • Reflections of a Revolutionary in Residence
      “Papi, am I a princess?” “Yes, Anabella, you are. But we all are. In our country every one of us is a king or a princess,” I said, echoing the words of young Mr. Jefferson as played by Kurt Smith. She was right to ask: my family was feted like never before during my recent...Read More »

      The word on DoG Street is that the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation receives state and federal taxpayer support and that an increase in that support could help solve the serious financial challenges facing the Foundation.

    • An Anecdotal History–and Mythology–of the Stars and Stripes
      June 14 is Flag Day, marking the day in 1777 that the Second Continental Congress adopted the stars and stripes as America’s national banner. But it takes a bit more than the dawn’s early light to make out the origins of the flag. Still, it’s worth a try. Let’s start with the stripes. In 1769 some...Read More »
    • Did 18th-Century Tradespeople Worry about Machines Taking Their Jobs?
      The fear of machinery replacing jobs is a fear as old as… invention itself. While it is easy to consider this a modern anxiety – cashiers being replaced by automated checkouts, industry being hit by mechanized assembly lines – the concern goes back centuries. Becoming obsolete is a frightening prospect in any era. While sewing...Read More »

ABOUT ME

I love Williamsburg !

Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.

We feel like we’re living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.

In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time i close a deal and I see a smile on someone’s face.
