One of the largest entertainment facilites in the area is Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, not far from the Civil War battlefields in Manassas.  Patrons can purchase lawn seats or sheltered seats under a huge roof.  Since the terrain has a gentle slope show goers have a good view from most areas.  There are two huge video screen on either side of the shelter that make up for any potential blind spots.Because of its' huge size it hosts such major summer concerts as Lollapalooza, The Capitol Jazz Fest and Jimmy Buffett.  You can't bring food or drink inside, but because of its' sprawling venue patrons can move about easily to the many concession stands.  The Prince William Symphony is a professional ensemble that presents concerts to audiences in Prince William County and the City of Manassas....

Agent Rating Review - Daughter buys, sells, parents sell  Frank and Nancy's daughter Natalie needed to buy her first house.  She picked the GOLD Team 6 years ago and bought a townhome in Beau Ridge Estates in Woodbridge, near Montclair. Several years later Natalie got engaged and needed to sell to move to another state. She picked the GOLD Team again. Last year her Frank and Nancy bought a new home in Bristow directly from a builder.  To sell their Montclair home they picked the GOLD Team, even though they had a satisfactory relationship with the agent they had previously used to buy the house. Here are Frank and Nancy's comments about the GOLD Team's Jim Gilbert:"Jim is competent and thorough. We trust him completely to do the best possible job for us.  Our family has uses him for 2 sa...

  James and Stacey O. owned a newer home in Woodbridge near Manassas. The builder was nearing completion of their new home. Their parents and their adult brother were going to be buying neighboring houses in the new subdivision enabling easy access for grandchildren, cousins and socializing among the homes.  The only trouble was that James & Stacey's existing home had been on the market for months with no offers despite being listed with an established, capable, and reputable local agent.  James & Stacey relisted their home with the GOLD Team and it was sold swiftly.   James and Stacey then referred both their parents and their siblings to the GOLD Team to market those houses.  The siblings house sold and the parents leased their house out.     All three families were able to move into ...

Oscar Aguilar is a small business owner, an experienced real estate investor, and a Manassas homeowner.      Recently Oscar attended a GOLD Team Open House and decided to buy the home.  As an experienced buyer he requested - and the GOLD Team accomodated - that we write his offer to purchase even though acknowleging in writing that we represented the seller.  After some interesting negotiations the house was his.     Subsequently Oscar asked us to list and sell his single family home in Gainesville, which was swiftly and successfully accomplished.     And now Oscar has referred his brother to us who has listed a Burke single family home with the GOLD Team.     When we asked Oscar why he liked the GOLD Team over his prior agents he said simply, "You worry all the time to give good service!"

"Montclair Much Sought By Eastern Prince William Buyers""Montclair Single Family Colonial Prices Continue Decline"Several of our recent transactions have involved buyers who approached us with an explicit, stated preference for Montclair colonial homes.  Montclair is unique in eastern Prince William County developments in having its own private security patrols, 3 beaches, and a very community-activity-oriented HOA.Colonial homes have the advantage of having all the bedrooms on the top level, the main public rooms on the main level, and a finished or unfinished basement for that media room, a recreation room, a den or whatever.  The most desirable colonials will have a basement with its own walk-out or walk-up access to a side or rear yard.Here are the pending and closed sales for Montc...
