Market Watch ’23 draws record crowd

I want to say a heartfelt “thank you!” to everyone who turned out for my annual “State of the Ford’s Colony real estate market” event on Thursday at the country club.

We FILLED the room with approximately 70 people who showed up for a lively discussion about sales numbers from 2022, trends in the Ford’s Colony market, the outlook for ’23 and beyond, and other topics. It’s the best attendance we’ve had at one our seminars.

I especially appreciated the thoughtful question-and-answer session that truly demonstrated how engaged Ford’s Colony residents are in their community. It made for a very successful afternoon that I think was made better by our new 4 p.m. start time; we’ve held it earlier in the afternoon in the past, but I think folks appreciated the little later kickoff. If you couldn’t make it this year, I hope to see you next year!

As always, please contact me with any questions and comments about the Ford’s Colony market, and do let me know how I can help if you are considering a move.

Take advantage of this great energy-saving program

Happy 2023, my friends!

I wanted to take a minute here at the start of this new year to make sure you are aware of a great home energy-saving program that Dominion Energy is offering. Dominion has hired the electrical contractor Puffin Mechanical to do free home-energy assessments, which includes replacing up to 70 of your home’s light bulbs with brand-new energy-efficient LED bulbs — at NO CHARGE.

Sounds amazing, right? It is!

I signed up and Puffin’s technician recently installed 58 LEDs throughout and even outside of our house – including in the ceiling fan of our two-story great room. Monday, I had Puffin come and replace dozens of bulbs in my mother’s house nearby.

We did all of our high can lights, outdoor flood lights and chandeliers, and lamps that had not been converted. If you require more than 70 bulbs and want Puffin to replace them, they will charge you only the cost of the bulbs – $7 for regular or candle bulbs or $12 for flood lights. 

Within one or two weeks, Puffin then follows up with an email report of the work done and includes energy-saving tips for all parts of your home.

It’s a fantastic program that I hope you can take advantage of yourself soon. To reach Puffin Mechanical to sign up or get more information about the home-energy assessments, call 757.230.4681 or visit

Be well, my friends – and Happy New Year!

Ford’s Colony “Artists and Artisans Expo” is planned

Make a calendar note!

The Ford’s Colony Activities Committee is sponsoring an “Artists & Artisans Expo” on Feb. 25-26, 2023 to showcase the creative talents of Ford’s Colony residents.

The free event plans to feature homemade paintings, sculpture, woodwork, quilting, jewelry and photography, as well as art produced by the youth of Ford’s Colony.

The committee seeks monetary donations of any amount to ensure this exciting expo is a success. All donors will be highlighted at the event and featured in marketing materials for the expo. Sponsors will also be invited to a “Meet the Artists” reception to be held Sat., Feb. 25.

Checks can be written to the Ford’s Colony HOA — note “Art Expo” in the memo — and be dropped off at the community services building. Event co-chairs Ellen Swan ( and Ginger Kroncke ( also are available to pick up donations and to answer any questions regarding the expo.

Take the annual residents’ survey

The Ford’s Colony HOA has sent out a link to its annual residents’ satisfaction survey.

The board of directors would like to hear from as many Ford’s Colony residents as it can regarding its performance and areas of improvement that should be addressed moving forward.

The survey is brief and confidential — and more than one person in a household may respond.

The link to the survey is here. Responses are being accepted until Sept. 30. A summary of results will be issued after responses are compiled.

“Talk of Colony” updates Ford’s Colony housing numbers

The September “Talk of the Colony” magazine is out and includes the updated housing figures as provided by the Ford’s Colony Architectural Review Committee.

As of the end of July, Ford’s Colony now includes 2,621 single-family homes. Add in 80 townhomes and the 24 Eaglescliffe condos, it puts total housing units in the community at 2,725.

Additionally, 46 homes were under construction as of July 31, with 20 applications for construction year-to-date.

Check out the entire September edition of “TOC” by clicking here.

The latest updates in August Talk of the Colony

The August edition of Talk of the Colony, the HOA publication, is out and among other things includes an interesting column detailing the evolution of information technology in Ford’s Colony.

Upgrading outdated IT platforms across the board is a priority of the HOA, from financial management to field operations and communications and resident engagement. The HOA recognizes the broadening demographics within the community and is adopting new ways and processes to serve a diverse resident base.

It’s worth a few minutes to read and get up to speed on the changes that are underway. An update on the “long-awaited turn lane” off of Longhill Road onto Ford’s Colony Drive is included in the edition as well.
