Real estate

I am a native of Northern Virginia & know this market like no other. Buying or selling a home is one of the most stressful things you will do. My GOAL? Make it enjoyable!  


I hand select everything in the shop myself. I curate items I love and would personally use and give as gifts or use in my home. I have a passion for small makers, local creatives and sustainable goods.
