Boofie’s long-time presence in Reston gives her a unique perspective on real estate opportunities for both buyers and sellers. Having raised her family here and working in Reston real estate for more than 30 years, Boofie’s personal experience provides insights on community nuances and area home sales trends that can only be derived from this depth of knowledge and market savvy.
Boofie loves helping families find the perfect home because she knows how her own family flourished here. “The rich diversity of the area has given us a deep appreciation for the many cultures and lifestyles around us. I have always wanted to be a part of the community and to follow [Reston founder] Bob Simon’s mantra of ‘live, work, play, and give back.’”
Boofie believes the economic diversity that has been a hallmark of Reston since its inception is important to recognize. She has contributed to the support structure for those in Reston who are less fortunate by encouraging collaboration among social service organizations such as The YMCA, Cornerstones, and Reston Association’s programs to assist the community’s youth.
Boofie’s personal investment in enhancing the Reston area benefits clients as well. Her community involvement and first-hand knowledge of local events reflect her dedication to the area. This personal familiarity also allows her to guide clients to their ideal property.
The O’Gorman team evolved from Boofie’s desire to preserve the highest level of service as her success generated increasing business demands. That is why she was thrilled when Margaret decided to partner with her in the business. Together they provide critical market insights, quickly and efficiently.
