I’ve lived in Reston for the almost 9 years that I’ve been married to my husband Paul. We have been friends for the almost 30 years that he has lived in Reston. We own several small businesses including an online real estate school which I market and manage. I also manage our 2 wheelchair accessible vacation rental cabins in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
I’m a grandmother of 3 Reston children and you may see me around town frequently with one or more of them. There’s munchkin/ace tennis, ice skating, and the oldest (12) has turned me into a soccer grandma. My daughter is a volunteer at the PTAs of their schools.
I grew up on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, eating crabs and oysters right from our backyard. Living on Lake Audubon is the best of all worlds: water, boats & waterfowl just like home but with Trader Joe’s, Mom’s Organic Market and Whole Foods just minutes away! I’m very lucky to Live, Work and Play in Reston. You can see a glimpse of my previous life (25 years in IT sales & service) at www.linkedin.com/in/constancehartke.
Now it's time to "get involved." I serve on the Board of Rescue Reston.
