YOU CAN RAISE $4,600.00 IN ONE YEAR FOR YOUR CHARITY. That's what you get when you work with Heather Maier.

I think it is probably true that we carry who we are into every aspect of how we do business.

For me, these things are inseparable.

I choose to conduct my business in a way that reflect my personal values and good will for the world, and to work for someone who shares those same values.

Doing good while doing well as always been my personal aim in all my endeavors. I like proving that you can be both profitable and kind.

Doing good and doing the right thing is the best business practice in my opinion.

That is why I partner with various charities, and I pledge 10% of my commission back to charities who send me clients.


Most organizations know at least 9 people who will buy rent or sell in Northern Virginia this year:

Send them to Heather Maier & EARN MONEY FOR YOUR CHARITY!

(Based on most conservative averages for this area)

  • 3 renters - $100 -  FOR YOUR CHARITY

  • 3 Home Buyers - $2,250.00 - FOR YOUR CHARITY

  • 3 Home Sellers - $2,250.00 - FOR YOUR CHARITY



So why not make money for your favorite charity while doing what you are planning to do anyhow?

I really believe in the circle of good, and that living and working around the practice of goodness is indeed the solution to many of the worlds ills.  That is why I chose the Fibonacci sequence images to express this belief.

Just Like the science behind the Fibonacci sequence, 
the practice of caring for others builds upon itself and expands naturally.  

The world needs more good. 

How about you and I do some good together?

Give Heather a call and see how 
can help your charity today.

PS: When a charity sends me a client, I automatically send them a written pledge, so they know to expect their donation soon!

How You Can Get a Home for Half Price

No, this is not a joke. Not a prank.  Not a gimmick.

The government has a little known program called the 'Good Neighbor Next Door' Program.

The U.S. Housing and Urban Development agency, HUD for short, has properties all across the country that they sell for 1/2 price of what the current market value is.

So if a house is listed for $100,000, you could get it for $50,000.

You can sell it after 3 years and keep the profit.


How it works:

  • The government has an inventory of houses located in Revitalization Areas
  • They offer these homes for 50% of list price
  • In return you commit to live there for 3 years.
  • Also the  FHA Insured Mortgage Program can make down payment as low as $100

Who is eligible:

  • Law enforcement
  • Pre-K- 12 Teachers
  • Firefighters
  • EMT's

Why they do it:

  • HUD wants to strengthen Americas communities

The catch:

  • You sign a silent second mortgage for the other 50% that you must repay if you move or sell in less than the three year period.

The property inventory changes weekly.

Check it out the link below, and don't forget to come to Heather Maier when you are moving, buying, selling or looking to rent in the Northern Virginia area.  
I'll treat you right!

That's it!  If you found this information helpful

Best wishes,

Top 10 Ways To Know If You Are Ready To Sell Your Home.

When to sell your home is a highly personal decision and must be based on both facts and lifestyle considerations.

1.  Ask yourself why you want to sell?
    Are you underwater in your mortgage, wanting to downsize, 
    or just simply sick of moving the lawn?

2.  Equity.  Will you make, lose or break even?
     The best way to make an educated decision is to assess the value by having 
     Heather create a comprehensive and details Comparative Market Analysis for you.  
     This will arm you with a great deal of information to make a good decision.

3.  When do you want to move?
     Simple as it may sounds, people sometimes do overlook that moving in winter is
     slightly less convenient.

4.  Is everyone involved ready and committed to this move?
    If not, often sabotage creeps in to the situation in multiple ways.

5.  Is your home ready?
     Do you have unfinished projects, repairs, long overlooked maintenance things 
    you need to tend to?

6.  Are you prepared for staging?
     To make your house presentable you should be ready and willing to put away and 
     store and de-clutter many of your belongings. This means you won't have ready 
     access to your 'stuff' til the house sells.

7. Are ready to keep your home show ready?
    This means keeping your home sparkling and spotless all the time.

8.  Remove your valuables.
     I recommend putting all your valuables and jeweler in a safety deposit box or 
     locked safe.

9. Modify dinners. 
    If you tend to cook with a lot of strong spices and items with strong odors, 
    you may want to avoid cooking in your home during peak show times.  

10.  Be ready to split like a banana.
       It is best to leave your home when potential buyers are coming by to view 
       your home.  

       Find a place in your neighborhood that is comfy and safe for you to go to on                     whenever these showing opportunities arise.
