Cottontail Swim and Racquet Club is a member-owned pool and tennis court facility serving communities in and around West Springfield and Burke. Surrounded by Fairfax County parkland and the homes of Orange Hunt Estates, the pool is nestled on 3 wooded acres. Families from the Sangster, Orange Hunt, Cherry Run, and Hunt Valley school districts can be found at Cottontail.
There are lots of fantastic community pools but I only belong to one. Last night we spent some time at a “Raft Night” and I started thinking how nice we have it at Cottontail.
Thanks to a handful of people on the social commity, we enjoy many events not only during the pool season but also throughout the year. Some events include:
- Annual Pig Roast: This years roast had live music!
- Memorial Day Picnic
- Thursday Night Raft Parties: last night’s had a food truck from Austin Grill in Springfield
- Cottontailgate: On any given weekend, at the pool parking lot we tailgate and watch either College or Pro Football
- Annual Chili CookOff: Usually held Mid-October
- Halloween Trunk or Treat: Held at the pool parking which gives the kids an opportunity to show off their costumes and reap in more candy in a safe environment. Awards for the Best Jack O’ Lantern and Costume
- Adult only steak dinners
- Water Shooter Night
- Open Grill Nights
My family and I enjoy Cottontail pool and we have been and will be, members for years. Discover our pool or one near your home, it’s a wonderful opportunity for friendship and memories.
Not just in Fairfax and Montgomery Counties but a Nationwide Summer Event Will Put Spotlight on Home Ownership this coming weekend. The 2011 REALTOR® Nationwide Open House will be held on the weekend of, June 4-5, 2011. This event, which began on a local level a few years ago, is a weekend when REALTORS® across the country—and across the globe—are invited to hold open houses in their area. It is designed to drive buyers’ attention and interest to homes for sale and offers opportunities to educate the public about the benefits of home ownership.
I have several worthy listings but this Sunday, June 5′th I’ll be holding open Cunningham Drive – a beautiful Contemporary single family waterfront home in Alexandria’s Mt Vernon in Fairfax County Virginia. Why did I select this one? The subdivision of Wessynton is mostly unknown. When people visit the community I commonly hear, “I never knew this was hidden here”. There are several homes for sale and a half dozen listing agents with a variety of Brokers are coordinating a community open house to bring awareness of this wonderful and unique subdivision to area home buyers.
All available Wessynton homes:
Most of these will be help open so if you’re out and about on Sunday, June the 5′th, stop in for a visit!
Tuesday April 5′th, 2011 I attended an awards luncheon in Springfield, VA in Fairfax County and received an award from Charlie Bengel, Jr., CEO of RE/MAX Allegiance. In 2010, I earned enough income to be in RE/MAX’s 100% Club. I just missed the Platinum Club by a couple of sales so… if you know anyone thinking about buying or selling a home in 2011…
RE/MAX has 5 club levels.
- Executive Club
- 100% Club
- Platinum Club
- Chairman’s Club
- Diamond Club
For 2011… Platinum Club is the goal! Diamond Club would be fantastic but I just switched from my old Broker to RE/MAX two years ago. I’m happy to climb the ladder. For my partial year in 2009 I earned the Executive Club, for my full year in 2010 I earned the 100% Club and for 2011 I’d like to earn the Platinum Club award.
I’m not thrilled with my picture but I’m happy with the award Thank you Mr. Bengel and RE/MAX Allegiance!
April 5′th also has another important meaning to me. My wonderful wife Stephanie’s birthday is April 5′th! She was working so I felt fine going to the award luncheon.
I spent some of my youth in Hawaii and some of my family and friends still live there. After living in Northern Virginia and Maryland for more than 25 years, I’m really from here now.
“Hau’oli Makahiki Hou”, is the term for bidding “Happy New Year” in Hawaiian language. “Hau’oli (happy) Makahiki (year) Hou (new)”(how-OH-lee mah-kah-hee-kee ho). Start up with this greeting, if you are in Hawaii during New Year.
2010 was the best year I’ve had since becoming a licensed REALTOR in 1994 and 2011 is looking very promising. I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me with my success in real estate. Those who have allowed me to represent them in the sale or purchase of real estate and everyone who encourages others to use me as their agent. I absolutely LOVE referral business… I am also very grateful to my wife for her ongoing support and encouragement. I would be a shadow of the person I am without her.
I Wish You a Happy and Prosperous New Year in 2011!
