Welcome to !

. . . and welcome to Virginia's beautiful northern Shenandoah Valley!

If you are looking to relocate to the area, then you have made an excellent choice and will not be disappointed. If you already live here, then you already know of its beauty, its wonderful outdoor activities for all ages and types, and its great value for real estate.

My Background

I live on the north side of Warren County, placed centrally for the areas around Front Royal, Winchester, Stephens City and Strasburg. Having grown up in England, I was formerly in senior management with a leading British bank. I am now a naturalized US Citizen, and have lived in Front Royal since 1999, but have not lost the accent! With a lifetime of experience in real estate, finance, and customer service, I am in a strong position to assist families and individuals in Warren County and surrounding areas, with their real estate needs.

I have a reputation for high integrity, and have over 20 years’ experience as a Realtor with more than 500 homes sold, with a sales value over $100 million. I combine excellent communication with technology, to provide a quality service and a personal touch. A member of the prestigious CyberStars group, I also have the CRS designation. I am co-owner, along with my wife, of Key Move Properties, an independent brokerage that we set up in 2019 to continue to provide a wonderful experience to our clients.

A large proportion of my clients are referred to me by their friends, family, and advisors. The quality of the service that I provide inspires others to recommend me, and I hope that I can also represent you with that same level of experience, commitment, and dedication to getting the job done well.

The website

I hope you enjoy this site, and find it useful. I have avoided the cookie-cutter "template" site, and have embodied a lot of useful information and links to other resources.

The Featured Listings page features quality photos and Virtual Tours, downloadable flyers, and a host of other information on both resale homes and new construction, while you will want to look at Land & Building Lots if you are interested in having your own home built. Check out the exciting new chalets and contemporaries on the New Chalet Homes page.

Use Search for Homes to browse for all listings on the market with my upgraded search facility, which includes the ability to search by mapping out the area you are interested in. By registering, you can receive automated emails advising you of new listings that meet your search criteria. You can also contact me at any time from this page, to ask me for further information on a property that interests you.

Check out About the Area for a whole host of local information, including a picture tour, maps and directions, school information, and demographic and economic statistics.

In the late 2000's, distressed sales unfortunately become a common feature of our market, and although matters have improved in more recent years, many homeowners still have difficulties. I have a special page dedicated to Loan Modification & Short Sales. For buyers on the lookout for bank-owned and foreclosure properties, I also have a page dedicated to Foreclosures & REO's.

I am proud of my expanding Testimonials page, which shows you what past clients have been saying about me.

There is also a useful Mortgage Calculator, and in the near future, I will be adding sections on mortgage finance, and tips on selling and buying homes, so please check back!

Selling your home

Are you considering selling your home? I would be happy to help you establish a fair price, and discuss how the property could be marketed to the best effect. I will employ a wide range of methods to promote your home, in the Multiple Listings database, feeding through to numerous other sites and portals online, targeted paid Facebooks ads, flyers, our prominent office window in downtown Front Royal, and so on. Please check out my Featured Listings page to see how I would showcase your home on the Internet, and maximize its exposure to the many people who are browsing for a home, maybe just like yours.

In marketing a home, I guarantee to offer you a friendly and efficient service, based on a professional approach which recognizes the need for a personal touch. I always consider that communication over the marketing of a home is vital, and I treat this as a priority in working with my clients.

If you are looking for a professional and caring service from our first discussion to final Settlement, please contact me.

Finding you a home

I have access to a large selection of real estate for sale in the surrounding area and in northern Virginia generally - as a result I can meet your needs, whether you are moving locally or relocating from a distance, seeking a new or previously occupied family home, looking for a weekend retreat, maybe a distressed property, or perhaps a building lot to have your own home built.

How would you like me to help you? Some people prefer to do a lot of the research for homes themselves, others would rather I provide listings of appropriate homes and take it on from there. Either way, this website provides you with all the tools, and I will always give you my full attention in listening carefully to your requirements, and in seeking out the right home for you. If you are new to the area, I will be pleased to show you around and help you to find your feet.

If I have your commitment, you will have mine.

Why not give me a call for an initial chat?

And to finish . . .

Whatever your real estate needs, I would like to help you.
Give me a call, or email me, to talk things through.
I look forward to working with you!
