I am "Brian the REALTOR"

Now that "Joe the Plumber" has become the central figure in this election season, it is time to introduce someone else, known in the Northern Virginia and D.C. area as


Yes, folks, that is me.  As debates go back and forth about success, taxes, spreading the wealth, politics, health care, tax cuts, and "Joe the Plumber," please remember that in this tough economy, it is important to support your local community.

WALMART and Target may have the lowest prices and make it tough to compete, but let us not forget:

Jim the Store Owner...

Sally the Pharmacist...

Fred the Baker...

John the Locksmith...

Susan the Waitress...

and yes, BRIAN the REALTOR.

As a REALTOR serving the community and helping people buy and sell homes throughout Northern Virginia and Washington D.C., I am proud to play my role in the local economy.  One of my passions besides helping you find the right home is helping you get acquainted with the area.  As such, I can introduce you to Jim, Sally, Fred, John, and Susan.  I know the best bakeries, stores, restaurants, and little known gems in the neighborhood.  Let me show you.

Oh, I just happen to know a few great plumbers as well.

You can consider me "Jason the Broker" from now on, or "Jason the Realtor", or just plain "Jason, the guy that I will call when i am ready to buy or sell a home in Austin, Texas".  Maybe that one is a bit wordy?

Brian - It is the small business owners in our community whose services we use that deserve our support and of course if I know of anyone coming down to Northern Virginia or Washington D.C. I would be happy to help your local economy by introducing them to  Brian the REALTOR!

Nice to meet you Brian the Realtor. At least you are licensed. It was nice of MCain & Co. to give this guy his 15 minutes of fame and now it seems a role on Dancing with the Stars and who knows how many other additional opportunities. McCain and Co. must be his agent!

I'm glad to have met "Brian the Realtor" and hope he survives everything doom and gloom that both candidates talked about.
