Make-Over Contest Winner – Eclips Salon by Stephanie Dillenseger

As part of their generous sponsorship to the Bram Brew Fest, Eclips Day Spa and Salon chose one lucky winner to receive a full make-over at their salon.  The first of their Brambleton Summer Makeover Series was lucky winner, Helen!

Eclips Salon: Day Spa, Ashburn VA Makeover winner

Helen entered because she wanted something new and easy to manage, as well as something that would impress her husband. She had the same style for the last twenty years, and being a busy working mom – not much time for herself. Helen was absolutely open for anything and super excited. She wanted something easy to take care of. Robin cut over 6 inches off her hair and drastically changed her color to a rich chocolate brown. Yer applied her makeup and finished her new look. After the team was done she was very pleased with the result! Helen was great to work with and she looked beautiful.

The Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities Mid-Year 2015 Update

The nation’s top-selling master-planned communities sold homes at a quicker pace in the first half of 2015 than they did in 2014, increasing by approximately 15%, as lot inventories increased and market sentiment improved in various metro areas. For over 20 years, RCLCO has conducted a national survey identifying the top-selling MPCs. We recently surveyed MPCs throughout the country to determine the top-20 selling communities for the first half of 2015. As a group, total sales were up from 2014 levels, with most developments experiencing strong increases in sales volume.
