Alexandria Virginia Real Estate Market Snapshot: January 2011

Jamey Turner, Glass Harpist, Alexandria VA

The photo above is of Jamey Turner, a glass harpist, performing on the Old Town Alexandria Waterfront.  You've got to see him performing to believe the beautiful music that he makes with a set of wine goblets.  It's truly amazing!  In the meantime watch him perform on YouTube.

Brian-It is always a treat to see and hear the amazing music Jamey ( I never knew his name-thanks!) can make with those goblets. It is amazing. Every time I have seen him their is a crowd around him. Good clean fun! Old Town Alexandria is so wonderful.

It appears that the Alexandria real estate market has become a well balanced market for buyers and sellers.

I bet it's beautiful.  Next time you see him, please shoot a quick video for your blog so we can hear his music.  Just from the looks of it, I bet it sounds awesome.  Now, I've got to go search youtube to see if he's out there.
