That was funny! You both thought of the same person that I was thinking of using as a prime example!

I have to say that Paris Hilton must be a lot smarter than I am - I haven't figured out how to get her looks, money, fabulous house, etc., etc.!

It's easy - just adopt some obscenely rich parents. Ok, that might not get you looks, but money can definitely help in that department as well!

DVDMON,
I am a Northern Virginia native and currently work in Reston as a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist so I know the real estate market in this area very well. I grew up in McLean, bought my first home in Reston and now live in Ashburn.

I think Reston is a fantastic area and homes are available at great prices right now. You'll want to choose a home in one of the better school districts but Reston as a whole is safe and full of opportunity for a family.

Well, just found out our bid for the place was accepted, so I guess for better or for worse, Reston here we come!
