FOCUS Trust the 40 Years of Experience of RE/MAX Regency’s Gloria Scheer MacNeil oN BusiNess expertise extends well beyond Fauquier and Loudoun, however, to Culpeper, Rappahannock, Warren, Spotsylvania, and Prince William Counties. She is licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Realtor, a Broker and a Licensed Certified Pre-Licensed Real Estate Instructor. Real estate is an ever-changing field, and not just due to ups and downs in the market. “Everything in this business has changed, from technology and laws to rules and regulations,” Gloria says. “The real estate contract has grown from two pages to 32!” Her experience and knowledge of the industry, the area, and the market, combined with teaching real estate principles keeps her up-to-date on industry trends as well as new laws, regulations, and procedures. The one thing that has remained constant is Gloria’s relationships with clients. “I believe a realtor’s main purpose is to serve,” she says. “I treat everyone with respect and kindness, and my clients have become family.” Speaking of family, her husband Bill, a retired U.S. Marine and university professor with many years of business experience, plays an important role too. “We work together to provide our clients with the knowledge and skills of two professionals,” Gloria says. “This affords us the opportunity to be in two places at once to satisfy clients’ needs. And Bill’s friendly and honest demeanor and international negotiating know-how are great assets!” To learn more, call (540) 272-4368. ~ Nancy Griffin-Bonnaire Fall Farm Days AT SKY MEADOWS STATE PARK 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Oct. 7 - 8 Oct. 14 - 15 Oct. 21 - 22 Oct. 28 - 29 Life on the Farm A DIFFERENT THEME EVERY WEEKEND!

That was in 1977, when she started with a small realty firm in Leesburg. Over time, Gloria gained experience in all elements of real estate, including marketing new and resale homes as well as land sales, and much more. After a decade in Loudoun County, she moved to Warrenton, where she continued in the field. Four years ago, after a brief hiatus, she returned to RE/ MAX Regency in Warrenton; she served here from 2006–2012 as well.
