A Cold Valentine’s Day in Bethesda

Well folks, it promises to be a cold Valentine’s day this year and here at Bethesda Actually we started to think about ways to make it a tad bit more enjoyable. And then the answer came to us…Soup!

What better way to spend Valentine’s day than enjoying a warm bowl of soup with your significant other, family and/ or friends?

Here are our top three list of places in Bethesda to get a warm bowl of soup this Sunday (or any day this week to be honest):

1. Kadhai Bethesda has many warming dishes on the menu, our personal recommendations are the Daal Takha or Daal Makhin – both are absolutely delightful.

2. Satsuma Bethesda – our favorites Japanese restaurant in the metro area has many wonderful noodle soups. Our favorite is the Udon Noodle soup!

3. La Madeline Bethesda makes the list in part due to their lovely soups but also the promise of enjoying the soup if front of a warm fire.

New School Ratings Tool

As we all know, many of our neighbors have moved to Bethesda for the highly ranked schools. A new tool provides competition to the existing sites and perhaps makes things a little bit easier for those considering a real estate purchase with schools in mind. It is important to always double check the boundaries with the school board.

The tool can be found here: http://www.cruvita.com/results?location=bethesda-md-c&tab=schools

This is test search I conducted on Bethesda schools.

Remember if you need any real estate assistance in the Bethesda/ DC metro area, including a possible move into a specific school district, you can reach me at raj@rajabout.com and (240)486-3921.

Real Estate Seminar

Fellow Bethesda Actually Community members, I just wanted to take a moment to invite you to a real estate seminar that I will be holding at the end of February (2/27/16 at 10am). We are trying to pin down the venue (in part it will depend on projected attendance) but the topic is confirmed:

“Why Buyers and Sellers should think like investors”

It promises to be a fun discussion (hopefully we will have a guest speaker as well) and I will be providing breakfast snacks, juice etc. Please send me an email to raj@rajabout.com if you can attend – put “real estate seminar rsvp” in the subject line.

Thanks and feel free to spread the word!

Grab your hot chocolate if you are conducting a Bethesda Trolley Trail Outing!
