It was a series of ‘firsts’ for my husband, Romie. If you know me, I love teaching people, and I loved showing Romie where I grew up and he finally got to meet some of my family for the first time.

If you didn’t know, I was born in England, and my whole family lives there. I think this trip helped Romie understand where I come from and the cultural norms I have at home.

It was Romie’s first transatlantic flight, the first leg was in economy and it was like torture for this 6’9” man so I had to upgrade on the way home. Thank goodness for credit card points.

We started off in London and embarked on a lot of ‘tourist traps.’ We went on the big bus tour and saw London Bridge, Tower Bridge, toured the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. We went to Harrods (which was the worst idea ever during the week leading to Christmas).

Then we went to Gloucester to visit my parents for Christmas. My brother, sister, sister in law, and niece and nephew came up for the occasion too. Romie got to experience what a ‘British’ Christmas truly was about, eg lots of s**t tv Christmas specials, Christmas crackers, the King’s Speech, and M&S Christmas meal.

Then we travelled to our next leg to Cardiff where my sister lives. We both ended up having a nasty bat of bronchitis so we didn’t get to do as much. We went to Cardiff castle, covered market to get welsh cakes, and I got my second lobe piercing.

Our next leg was to Oxford where we stayed in a prison and I got to show Romie my old stomping ground where I grew up and studied at the University of Oxford. I we toured Christ Church college, Blenheim Palace, and Romie got his first Barbour jacket. I swear he was slowly turning into Jeremy Clarkson by the end of this trip 😂

Next we came back to London and went to the royal cavalry, National Gallery, V&A museum and saw the Mayor of London’s firework show in front of the London Eye.

All in all Romie and I had a great time, we walked about 18,000 steps per day, he got to have plenty of fish and chips, and I think he understands me and my culture a little bit better.

Who knew December was going to be a very busy month? I didn't.

I am so thankful to help all of my clients end the year in a new home!

240 Ladysthumb Circle, Charles Town, WV - I helped my clients from the UK purchase the model home (only built in April 2023) in a beautiful community so they can just move right in. All they need to bring are their clothes! We got them a discount of $35,000 and negotiated the furniture for them as well!

34 Devon Ct, Sterling, VA - I helped my client Taylor prep her home for sale and we got 47 showings and 8 offers in a weekend!

450 Indigo Way, Stafford, VA - I was referred to these clients from a Sotheby's agent in Colorado Springs, Eve Courson. Their daughter lived and worked in Stafford and they wanted her to have a bigger space where they could also visit. I am so happy for them! Their home in Embrey Mill is beautiful!

215 Ladysthumb Circle, Charles Town, WV- My clients wanted to purchase this home but they needed to sell their home first. We asked for a very long closing timeline and we ended up needing it! This was my toughest transaction of the year. We had an VA appraiser who wanted to 'ruin the deal.' He stated that the home was lived in, on well, and on septic, when it was brand-new, never lived in, and on public well and septic. He used comparables that were 5 miles away instead of using the 6 recently sold homes in the same neighborhood. The VA was incredibly difficult to work will even though we asked for an ROV and submitted comparables, letters, and more. I couldn't have asked for a better "bulldog" team to help us get over the finish line (Simi Van Scoy). I've never had a problem with VA loans before but there were definitely times where I thought, "are they actually working in the best interests of the veteran?" Anyways, we got this closed with the help of the lender/attorney/listing agent Bill Dixon, my client is happy, and I am so thankful for my colleagues who help me Sherry Santmyer Janeen Marconi Sheri Cessna Gershen

3 days, 43 showings, 7 offers. My client is so happy with the non-contingent offer they ratified this morning.

Taylor and I have been 'instagram' friends for a while! But we finally met in person and had a consultation on Sept 20 about buying and selling at the same time. Taylor had to sell their home before she bought a home, and sometimes it's hard for my clients to wrap their heads around this.

The first step is knowing your numbers. So she got pre-approved and we started looking at homes in WV. We ratified on her new home on 10/25. And I knew she needed a long close on this home, so we were able to do this so she could sell her home quickly.

Then the fun began! We had to prep her home for sale, and this started by me collecting the recent sold homes in the area and coming over to her home to evaluate what needed to be done.

They rented a storage unit, decluttered, took photos, and we got this show on the road.

Although it can be uncomfortable to have 43 back-to-back showings in one weekend. I was able to sell her home in a weekend with a quick close and on time for her new home in WV.

With my planning, it always comes together!

Also, the media says people aren't buying homes? Tell that to the 42 buyers that are still looking!

If you need help buying and selling at the same time - I can help!

Last year I cried in front of a room of 100+ realtors, but so much has changed in the last year…

In October ‘22, I was asked to speak on a top producer panel with some of the best in the business.

Did I feel intimidated? Yes. The others were selling $30 million+ a year and I was not.

Most of the realtors in the room knew me because I grew my business on social media.

My friend Scotti was the moderator to this panel and asked us a variety of questions, one of which was, “how do you handle stress?”

Some of the answers included: I walk my dogs, spend time with family, do Ironman competitions, fly my plane.

Maybe I’m too honest, but I said something along the lines of, “I am learning how to handle my stress, sometimes it looks like crying in my car.” Cue the mental breakdown in front of 100+ people 😂.

Was I absolutely mortified? HELL YES. I don’t like showing emotion in front of anyone, let alone 100+ people I hardly know.

Recently, I bumped into one of the agents who came up to me after that panel. She said she remembered it because I was authentic and relatable to many of the agents in the room because many of us are not meeting our personal or professional goals this year.

In the last year, I’ve learnt that I was alone and broken. And now I have an amazing community both at my brokerage and with my other industry partners. I have learnt how to handle my stress better, I’m focused on my health, I’ve already lost 20 lbs + counting, my relationship with my husband is better than ever, I love the clients I am attracting and currently working with. We are more than “just listed” and “just solds”. We are MORE than our numbers.

This business is HARD, remember to be kind to others because you don’t know what they’re going through. So many agents and industry partners are struggling. I’ve heard so many agents being bullied this past week by their team leaders and the agents on the other side. We can do better. Find your people who will help you and know that you can reach out to me if you need to vent or need some help in this business. 💙

Read the caption IF YOU DARE 😱 because these seller mistakes are haunting potential buyers (and you probably haven't even noticed!)

1. Red/Maroon/Orange Paint Colors - Did you know the color of your walls can impact your mood? Bold, warm colors in the red family can actually make potential buyers feel more irritable and less at ease. Neutral paint will never scare off buyers, so even if you've LOVED your crimson walls all these years, it's best to paint before listing!

2. When Sellers "Ghost" Staging - From a report by National Association of Realtors: 82% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home. Skipping staging is a costly mistake! This doesn't mean you have to hire a designer and buy all new furniture...but take the advice of your agent and remember: this isn't personal! Agents just know what most buyers are looking for and they want you to make the most money on your home sale.

3. Neglected Home Maintenance - While this time of year everyone loves visiting an abandoned house, no one wants their next home to look neglected! Don't leave the repairs for the buyers. Take care of them before you put your house on the market to avoid buyers subtracting those repairs from their offer price (and at a greater price than what it would cost you to just get it done)!

Have you ever walked through a listing and found something that scared you away from putting in an offer? Share below!

I know it's Halloween time but I don't have any kind of magic to help me tell the future!

I may not be able to look ahead but I can look back at history and use that to help me predict what will likely happen with these rising interest rates.

Inflation is high. And when inflation is high, interest rates are also high.

The Federal Reserve has a goal to bring inflation back down. They want it to be around just a 2% increase each year instead of the upwards of 8.9% we've been seeing the last several months.

Historically the direction of inflation leads the way and interest rates have followed suit. So when inflation is high, interest rates are high. But when inflation goes down, interest rates have always gone down, too.

If the Feds can bring inflation back down to 2%, it could lead to lower interest rates, making it much more affordable for you to buy a home.

This is SUCH GOOD NEWS, right? Mostly! It's nice to know we are headed in the right direction and there's a good chance of lower interest rates again (although let's not forget that a 7% interest rate is not bad considering 20% interest rates have been a thing before).

However, with lower rates comes...more buyers! Which means more housing competition.

This doesn't scare me as I help buyers compete over other offers all the time, but this is why I'll tell you the same thing I tell my clients: if you CAN afford your payment at a higher rate, now is the time to buy.

Get locked in to a house you love and simply refinance when rates drop again so you don't have to compete with as many offers as you will if you wait.

Whew, that was a lot, wasn't it? The good thing is, you don't have to totally understand all of that. You just need an agent in your corner who does! If you have more questions, reach out today before the rush of the holidays and let's make a plan for you!

10/06/2023

Here's my hot take.

Homeowners who have been locked in at a low rate don't want to put their house on the market and risk getting "less house" thanks to housing prices and mortgage rates.

Home prices won't budge because inventory is low and homeowners need to get the most out of their sale to afford where they are going.

And interest rates won't go down until inflation rates go down.

So, what does this mean for you? So glad you asked :)

You have to do what's best for YOU. If you are currently in a home you love, stay. If you are in a home you don't love but don't think you can afford to move, talk with an agent and a lender and get the truth about your numbers. Then make an educated decision based on those numbers.

If you really want to find a place you love and have the means to do so, let's list your house and get you moved! If you're able to buy, you totally should.

Like they say, the best time to buy a house is always 5 years ago. Even buying a home at a higher price with a higher rate can help you accumulate wealth through real estate in the long run, and I am here to help you every step of the way!

Picture this: you're sitting at lunch with two of your friends and you are eager to tell them that you've been saving up for a house, but before you get a word in, they start talking about home prices and interest rates and inflation and just "how terrible" everything is right now. And now, instead of excitedly telling them all about your plans, you sit there, stirring the ice in your Diet Coke with your straw feeling defeated.

Been there?

It's not nearly as doom and gloom as your friends (and everybody else in the world) are making it. BUT there are some things you need to seriously consider...like how all of this effects your bottom line.

How much house can you afford anyway?

To get to the bottom of this, you first need to talk to your local lender. (Don't have one? No big deal, I have a great one I work with!)

Talking to a lender is not necessarily a formal sit down meeting, by the way. Most of the time there's a simple form to fill out online and they give you a quick call when they're done running your numbers to let you know where you're at and what a good action plan would be for you! SO SIMPLE.

A good lender will answer most of your questions but it's also so important to know YOUR numbers. A lender looks at your debt and income and gives you your max number of what they're comfortable loaning you. But that doesn't mean you're comfortable spending that much each month!

Lenders are so helpful, but YOU have to know what you're comfortable putting towards your home. So get to know your numbers and let your lender know them too, and that will help you determine not only how much you CAN afford, but how much you're willing to spend!

Also, sometimes you might have to talk to a financial planner or credit repair specialist before talking to a lender, and that's perfectly ok! I want you to be comfortable finding these resources so that you can prepare yourself for buying a home!

Bottom line: there’s no one answer to how much you’re allowed to spend on a house…you just have to know your lender’s limitations and what you are comfortable with!

...and Zillow says the my home is worth...HA! Just kidding.

It's time to stop relying on random internet searches to make decisions about your future. Let's look at the FACTS together.

So, what is your home worth? To find out, I'll look at recent sales in your area and compare those homes to yours. Do you have similar square footage, lot size, updates, and features like a fireplace or stamped concrete patio?

Other things I consider is how long the homes were on the market, if they sold for over asking price, was the home sold as is or were there other terms and conditions that factored in the price, etc.

Then let's look at what you owe on your home. You'll either find this number on your monthly statement or you can pull it up online.

We will deduct that number from what we think your home is worth (we can come up with 2 or three different numbers based off of how conservative or aggressive we want to be).

But remember, this isn't your final number. If you decide to sell your home, you'll have costs you need to consider.

You will have realtor fees as well as fees from the title company and lender & HOA resales docs, plus the cost of any staging or updates you may need to make before you list your home...but this will give you a good idea to see what you could net on your home.

The best way to know for sure what's possible is to schedule a meeting with your agent (if you're reading this, there's a good chance that's me!) so they can go over your specific home selling plan. This is the only way to make this decision with confidence and I am here to help!

So stop googling and start DM'ing your favorite agent 🙋🏻‍♀️

In a world of streaming and Amazon Prime, we have gotten used to instant gratification.

So it's no wonder some first time home buyers hesitate before investing in real estate.

"I mean, aren't things really expensive right now?"

"Shouldn't I wait until interest rates go down?"

"My rent is about the same as my mortgage payment would be and I don't have to fix any broken appliances."

I get it. Instant, short term, quick wins are very tempting (and in a lot of cases, great options!)

But homeownership isn't a short game. It's not a shortcut to wealth. It's a long game.

You may not feel "wealthy" six months in...2 years in...or even 5 years in. But over time your home value will most likely appreciate significantly.

In fact, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), in the last 30 years, home price appreciation has increased nationally at an average of almost 300%!!! This is why it's hard to find someone who regrets buying a home 30-20-even 10 years ago!

So what does this mean for you if you only plan on living in your home for 5 years?

Don't worry, this is for you, too!

The money that you make when you sell your house after five years can be rolled over and put down on your next house...and so on and so on, so no home purchase is ever in vain. It all leads to long-term wealth.

Stick to Amazon Prime and Netflix for your short game and invest in real estate for the long game.

If you dream of waking up Christmas morning in your new home, fireplace crackling, cinnamon rolls in the oven, and White Christmas playing softly in the background, this post is for you.

It's easy to feel overwhelmed at the thought of lining up paperwork, figuring out loan options, and house hunting, so today I'm not going to tell you what to do to buy a house by the holidays.

Today I'm going to tell you what NOT to do to celebrate the holidays in your new home:

-sign another year long lease

-take out another unnecessary loan

-overspend on Christmas gifts

Instead you SHOULD

-DM your favorite agent
-Track your finances + budget

I don't know about you, but the list of things NOT to do feel more overwhelming than the things you should be doing to get in your new home before the holidays.

Overspending, not tracking finances, committing to another year of paying rent, and increasing debt make me feel more jittery than watching Lorelai Gilmore chug 15 coffees.

DM me today if those things make you nervous, too, and let's talk through your options! That dream of a cozy morning by the crackling fire in your new home can become a reality, but you have to take the first step!

Picture this: you're a football player. You're playing a team you REALLY want to beat. Right before you step out onto the field, you run over to your opponent's sidelines and ask their coach what you should do to win. 🤯

Sounds crazy, right?

It's a lot like buyers who find a house they love, but instead of calling their agent, they call the listing agent. (Have you ever been told to do that, too!?) 🫣

Having an agent whose sole purpose is to represent YOU and help YOU win is the game winning strategy you need.

Now, there are MANY listing agents who would do a great job representing both sides of the transaction. BUT here's the thing: you don't get to choose the listing agent. You get who you get. When you use a buyer's agent, you get to choose someone you know, like, and trust.

With a listing agent, there's no relationship and no trust built. When you choose a buyer's agent to represent you during your home purchase, you get to choose from a sea of agents and pick the one you jive with most. You get to pick someone you're comfortable with and someone you know has your best interest in mind.

Don't run to your opponent's coach to ask for help. Get a coach of your own who will guide you throughout this season and prepare you to win the championship trophy (the keys to your new home!)

Long before you go to buy or sell your house, it's a good idea to assemble your home team!

Your home girl (aka your agent aka yours truly) is like your guide with the plan.

I'll lead you to your lender, financial planner, & credit repair specialist (if you don't already have one!) so you can make a financial plan to purchase your home.

Another important part of your home team is anyone you bring along with you to showings! You want to bring someone who is looking out for your best interest but also who wants you to find a home you love!

Assembling a home team you love and trust is essential in any successful transaction.

Our goal is to get you to the closing day with keys for your new home in hand! The first step to making that happen is to contact your home girl! We meet with our clients up to a year in advance (sometimes even longer)! If you're thinking of selling this spring, you need to start talking to me right now!

This might be controversial...but some agents are grossly overpaid. My mum literally sent me a listing the other day that had DIRTY UNDERWEAR on the bed, trash on the countertops...I was half expecting it to be a 'for sale by owner' but it was listed by an agent.

Some agents are getting paid a hefty percentage and they're doing the BARE MINIMUM for their clients. Maybe the transaction gets closed, but more and more clients are left feeling like they were taken advantage of and the amount of money they paid their agent actually makes them feel sick.

I see this all the time and I think to myself, "Why are they getting the business when they're essentially 'putting a sign in the yard'?"

The bare minimum is something nearly anyone can do with a quick google search. This is why I go the extra mile (and sometimes ten) for my clients. Because I'm more than a "sign here" agent...I'm an agent who understands the ins and outs of each contract, recognizes red flags in transactions, I'm a queen negotiator, and so much more.

Every transaction is different. Every client is different. Which is why I strive for each of my clients to experience my process... ("Have a luxury experience at every price point").

The truth is, I work really hard for each of my clients to make the whole process as light and seamless as possible and I do things for them that Google can't do.

My goal at the end of the day is for you not only to feel like you didn't overpay me, but that you think to yourself, "she did ALL that and I only had to pay her THIS much?!"

And maybe, "I should buy her a bottle of wine, too!" HA I kid, I kid.

Never, EVER, buy a house!
..unless you do these four things!

I know what you're thinking, "But *Chloe* aren't you in the business of helping people buy houses!?"

You bet! BUT I ONLY encourage people to buy a home IF they do these three things first!

1. Love your agent. Note: I didn't say "have an agent." I said to LOVE them. You should LOVE working with your agent! The conversations should be easy and you should be confident you're in good hands with them on your side.

2. Make a Budget with your Lender. And local lenders are even better, because they and their appraisers are familiar with our market! Plus, they're so much easier to get ahold of (they love crunching numbers and getting back to your right away!) Creating a budget with a lender you trust will help keep you from getting in over your head with a house payment.

3. Learn about your Local Market. What's selling? What's not? What's happening in the neighborhood you are wanting to buy in? I don't just help my clients buy homes today...I want to help them sell their homes in the future! It's important to me to guide them and help them make wise investments!

4. Make sure you check your DoorDash…I mean it! Do you order out on a regular basis? Is your lifestyle going to change? Are you going to be living in the middle of nowhere? Can you handle that? These are the questions you’ll have to answer! So pull up your DoorDash and google maps and see what’s near your new home!

Think YOU'RE ready to buy a house? I'd love to help! DM me today and let's get you HOME!

09/22/2023

When I was first starting my journey as an agent, I was still working in technical sales, and I didn't really know anyone in my area. My parents are from the UK and my clients were located in NYC and Boston, and they didn't know many people in Loudoun County....

I took the principles from startup methodology....

In order to grow as fast and as lean I knew that I needed to talk to as many people as possible, for as cost effective as possible. I knew that was through social media.

Did I know much about instagram and facebook? No.

Could I figure it out? Yes.

So I started. And I sucked.

I look back at my first stories / videos / posts and I cringe. There's a video where I'm wearing foundation two shades lighter than my skin tone, and I'm just very stiff and theatrical.

At the beginning I bought those templates that look so unoriginal and it was terrible. It wasn't speaking true to my audience. I had 0 followers.

But once I started personalizing my content, people started watching.

And they kept watching...

Until one day someone finally reached out and said, "hey Chloe, I love your content, can you list my house?"

I was shocked. I didn't think it would actually work. But it happened again, and again, and again!

It can happen for you too! I promise!

I'm going to teach you how! Comment the phrase 'workwithme' to join my Social Media for Realtors Masterclass on October 4th.

See you then!

About me

The name “Rococo Real Estate & Design” was born from a love story.... mine. My nickname is Coco, short for Chloe, and my boyfriend’s nickname is Ro, short for Romie, so we’re Rococo. Funnily enough our namesake also means an “exceptionally ornamental and theatrical style of architecture, art, and decoration…” couldn’t be more perfect! Because I love interior design in addition to having a passion for real estate.

But I wasn’t always an amazing real estate agent & interior designer. Born in England, and raised in VA, I have a compelling combination of British class and Virginian charm. After getting my Masters in Biotechnology, I worked as a neuroscience & psychology sales consultant for years, before making the big switch into real estate & design. You may be thinking, “from science to something so people-infused and creative?” But, I’ve always loved helping others and I’ve also been pretty artistic. My passion for interior design and do-it-yourself projects recently landed me a spot in the Washingtonian magazine.

Flash forward to reality, several years later, I decided to regroup and rethink my career and focus in life, and did a bit of soul-searching. I knew I wanted to find something I loved so much, that by doing it, I’d jump out of bed in the morning with a smile on my face. As someone who loves flipping houses, I knew that I wanted to make real estate & design my new career. ... and I’m so loving life, I haven’t looked back.
