Which Home Exterior Colors Attract Buyers? The Experts at the Estridge Group Real Estate Agency Weigh In

Top real estate experts in Washington, DC, The Estridge Group, offer their advice for painting your home exterior to attract potential buyers.

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — DC-area residents who are considering selling their homes in the coming months come to the Estridge Group, a top local real-estate agency, for advice on everything from asking price to curb appeal. Believe it or not, according to the experts, the color of your home can affect the time it spends on the market as well as the price you will ultimately get for it. After all, the color of your home makes a crucial first impression. The Estridge Group recommends homeowners consider the following colors for their home exteriors.

According to national surveys, roughly 40% of all American homeowners choose white for their home exteriors. There are many reasons for this. Not only is white viewed as a “clean” color – and that’s why it is so common in hospitals and doctor’s offices – but it also makes the home appear larger than it actually is. It can also help to offset any bright pops of color in the trim or the landscaping, which creates focal points that can make a home more attractive.
If white is a little too pristine, the Estridge Group also recommends beige as a great alternative. Though it can have a brown or yellow tint, it is considered neutral and clean. It blends in well on almost any property, but it is better suited for homes that are tucked into homes surrounded by wooded areas or heavily landscaped. Accents like navy blue, hunter green, black, and even white make exciting accents for beige.

White and beige take center stage because their neutrality makes it easy for potential buyers to decide how the home would look if they painted it according to their own personal style. For this reason, real estate experts recommend against painting homes’ exteriors or interiors bold colors; this can make your home feel as if it is too personal for potential buyers and put them off making an offer.

Of course, aside from the exterior walls and trim, another important consideration is the color of your home’s front door. If you’ve chosen to paint your home a neutral beige or brown, then a bold eye-catching color like red or even burgundy would be a great choice. On the other hand, if your home’s exterior is stark white, you might want to choose a more toned-down version of the color. For stone or brick, choose a door color that is found within it.

Robert Thomson reflects on his journey into luxury real estate

Robert Thomson

Waterfront Properties' Robert Thomson looks back on more than 30 years in the South Florida luxury real estate market.

JUPITER, FLORIDA, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Waterfront Properties and Club Communities owner, property mogul, and a veteran of the South Florida luxury real estate market, Robert Thomson reflects on his 30-year career and talks family, indoctrination, induction into Luxury Real Estate's Billionaires Club, brokering yachts, and more.

Robert 'Rob' Thomson was indoctrinated into the world of luxury real estate at a young age. "I was an unwitting student in the Joan Thomson School of Real Estate," he jokes.

In fact, it's true that Robert Thomson picked up a number of his best techniques from his highly successful real estate professional mother as a child. Many of these techniques he still uses today, more than three decades later.

In the late 1980s, Thomson's mother, Joan, changed the name of her existing real estate business to Waterfront Properties, deciding to truly specialize, as the name suggests, in Palm Beach County's exclusive waterfront properties. Now known as both Waterfront Properties, and Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, it's the same thriving company which, and since 2010, Robert Thomson now runs.

"You don't realize how much you're getting indoctrinated by how much is being absorbed into your brain when you listen to it your whole life," reveals Thomson, "until you start doing it and you already know a lot of the answers."

Self-declared matriarch Joan Thomson remains at Waterfront Properties, today single-handedly accounting for more waterfront real estate transactions than any other brokerage in the local area, from Boca Raton to Jupiter and Stuart, and priced from $250,000 to more than $50 million apiece. An integral part of Waterfront's training team, Joan is an expert in schooling new agents in what—from first contact to signed contracts—she and Robert call 'the Waterfront way.'

"My mom is awesome," says Rob. "She's an incredible partner and continues to be a mentor, and, while she'll never admit it, she's a true real estate visionary," he adds.

Early recruitment into the Joan Thomson School of Real Estate, it seems, has paid dividends for Thomson, who, in 2012, became the youngest agent ever to be inducted into Luxury Real Estate's Billionaires Club. "Quite a testament," he remarks, "to my mom's mentoring!"

Today, under Robert Thomson, who places great importance on cutting-edge technology and a unique approach to online marketing, Waterfront Properties and Club Communities boasts more than 100 agents and brokers, regularly buying and selling homes worth tens of millions of dollars.

What's more, the highly successful businessman is also the name behind Waterfront Yacht Brokerage, giving Waterfront Properties and Club Communities' clients the option to further buy and sell ultra-luxurious watercraft alongside, or in addition to, their similarly luxurious homes and other properties.

"It just makes sense," suggests Thomson of the sister venture, established alongside his boat captain, Joe Kelly, in 2015, "and is one of the main reasons why Waterfront Yacht Brokerage has been so successful."

"Now," he adds, wrapping up, "clients can sell or buy their home and boat through experts in both arenas, all of whom are on the same team."

Robert Thomson is a luxury real estate professional based in Jupiter, Florida. Robert 'Rob' Thomson is a managing partner and owner of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities and is co-owner of the Jupiter-based restaurant Shipwreck Bar and Grille. A keen philanthropist, Thomson is a regular volunteer with organizations such as the American Cancer Society and Big Dog Ranch Rescue, as well as Waterfront Properties' own charitable organization, the Waterfront Way Foundation.

WOODBRIDGE, VIRGINIA, REALTOR® JASON MERO EARNS HIS REAL ESTATE BROKER’S LICENSE

“The Broker’s License is a Top Tier Designation in Residential Real Estate and it requires over 180 hours of training, which is great because with this knowledge I can better help my clients.”

— Jason Mero

WOODBRIDGE, VIRGINIA, USA, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jason Mero is an awe-inspiring, exemplary and accomplished Real Estate agent at Weichert Realtors® in Woodbridge, Virginia. He is also a retired United States Army Veteran and recently obtained his Broker’s License. He says, “The extra coursework covers topics such as ethics, contracts, taxes, and insurance at a more in-depth level than what’s taught in a real estate agent pre-licensing course. Also, I learned more about real estate legal issues and how the law applies to operating a brokerage, real estate investments, construction, and property management. As a result, I have a more in-depth knowledge of the real estate business which can help me serve my clients with their real estate needs.

Jason was born in Auburn, New York, and was a volunteer Fireman and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) at age 17, before graduating from Auburn High School. He also joined the National Guard while still in high school and then became Active-Duty in the Army in 1994.

Jason went to Fort Benning in Georgia for basic training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) his first Active-Duty Station was at Fort Knox, where he was assigned to the only deployable Infantry Brigades. He transferred to Korea and stationed at Camp Greaves. He says, “We supported the Demilitarized Zones (DMZ), joint security activities and the UN forces. We were the Quick Reaction Force (QRF), capable of rapid response to developing situations and had equipment ready to respond to any type of emergency.”

Jason then transferred to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama to attend the Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) school and was selected as a Bomb Specialist.

Jason then changed Duty Stations to Tooele Army Depot in Utah before deploying to Kosovo. “We supported NATO forces there supporting the Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) mission.” He states, “We investigated and gathered evidence from house bombings and turned it over to the NATO forces.” He then returned to Fort Irwin to clear, then relocated to Fort Drum in New York.

While at Fort Drum, Jason supported the local law enforcement in New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont. He also worked with the Secret Service and the United States Department, protecting foreign Dignitaries, the President of the United States, The Vice President and their families, including the First Ladies. This involved searches for hazardous device in hotel rooms, travel routes, restaurants and anywhere else the officials would have to go.

Jason then deployed to Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, came back to the U.S. briefly, and was redeployed to Iraq in 2003. “In Kuwait, we supported the Military forces going into Afghanistan, with all of their shipments going through clearances. We conducted training operations and secured the Naval piers, making sure there were no hazardous devices there. We cleared the routes for the Military convoys moving to and from different points. We also cleared areas for additional camps to be built to assist with the creation of Forward Operating Bases.”

Jason then rotated back to Fort Drum and trained for additional overseas missions. He then deployed back to Kuwait to go into Iraq to support the 101st Division out of Fort Campbell, and the 3rd Infantry out of Fort Benning.

Jason served in Mosul before returning to America, where he changed Duty-Stations to Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey. Here, Jason took on a research and development role. He says, “Our main function was to develop procedures for our EOD Soldiers in the field. Any new Military equipment was designed, tested and developed including unmanned ground vehicles.”

Jason was soon deployed back to Afghanistan to do counter-insurgency, counter-terrorism and counter-IED tactics. He was in our nation’s front line on terrorism: small cells of highly trained, passionately committed investigators, analysts, linguists, tactics experts, and other specialists from dozens of U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies, uniting together in the line of fire – far away from home. When it comes to investigating terrorism, they do it all: chase down leads, gather evidence, detain suspects, provide security for special events, conduct training, collect and share intelligence, and respond to threats and incidents at a moment’s notice. As Jason puts it: “We eliminate the bad guys…”

When Jason returned to the U.S., he was sent out to different conferences to talk about his experiences overseas. He then went to Korea for a year assigned as a First Sergeant in the only Army EOD unit in Korea. His responsibilities included supporting NATO forces on the peninsula. His organization supported the US Secret Service and State Department assisting with the protection of V.I.P.’s. He trained, led the Company, mentored the team leaders and made sure they were prepared to go out on their missions to support full spectrum EOD operations.

Jason returned to Fort Belvoir in Virginia and supported the Washington D.C. Capitol region, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the DoD’s Secret Service missions. He then went to Fort Lee to assist with the further development of EOD. He assisted with doctrine and equipment development – and retired in 2003 after a stellar and dangerous Military career, in service of his country.

Jason is married to his beautiful wife, Melinda and they have two wonderful children, Rian and Lucus. He decided to become a Real Estate agent because he wanted to help guide and mentor fellow Military members and their families in finding homes, since it was always a challenge for him. It was a natural progression for him.

Jason’s areas of service in Northern Virginia are Woodbridge, Fairfax Station, Fort Belvoir, Mclean, Springfield, Stafford, and Vienna.

Phaze Concrete Discusses How Drivers Can Keep from Becoming Distracted in Constructions Zones

Phaze Concrete and fellow construction companies are cautious of distracted drivers, but this is how drivers can help.

CEDAR CITY, UTAH, USA, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Distracted driving, at one time or another, to one degree or another, happens to everyone. Whether it is a personal issue that takes your mind off driving, or a screaming child, distractions are everywhere. Fortunately, most people learn to deal with distractions in a safe and careful way. Yet, even the best drivers can become distracted in construction zones. After all, there is a lot going on and sometimes, certain factors of construction processes can catch people off guard. However, distractions not only put you at risk, but also the people who are working in the construction zones

Phaze Concrete is keen on helping both fellow construction companies and the public stay safe. Thus, Phaze Concrete wants to educate people on the best practices to adhere to when traveling through construction zones. Sometimes, the unexpected happens, but if you are following these anti-distraction tips, you can have a chance to react.

Slow Down

Everyone has places to be. There are not a lot of people in the world who do not understand that everyone has commitments. However, going through construction zones is a constant area of the unexpected. There are people dangerously close to the cars and there are machines that could malfunction. Plus, yes, there is human error, on both ends. People, both driving and working can have an accident. Yet, by slowing down, you greatly decrease the chance that an accident, should it occur, will turn into a tragedy.

Increase Your Following Distance

Leaving plenty of room between you and the car in front of you is essential to keeping from becoming distracted. Often, construction zones force drivers to stop or slow down at random intervals. By leaving plenty of room between your car and other vehicles, you are ready for quick stops and other hazards.

Pay Attention to Road Signs

Road signs are put up for a reason. Unfortunately, sometimes, it seems that drivers think the road signs are lying. When asked to get into another lane, it is best to do so as soon as possible. Yet, some drivers try to wait until they have only feet of road left before complying. That is dangerous for everyone involved; construction workers, the car trying to get over, and other cars. The best way to quell this distraction, for yourself or from other drivers, is to listen to road signs and follow their directions immediately. That way, there will be plenty of time for you and others to keep everyone safe.

In summation, Phaze Concrete understands that distracted driving happens. Even though we all try to avoid it, it is sometimes inevitable. Therefore, the best that people can do is to focus their full attention in situations that are extremely perilous. This includes while driving through construction zones. Remember, everyone in that construction zone is responsible for everyone else. We have to all work together to ensure construction zones are productive, but safe environments.
