The latest from Capitol File's Publisher, Meredith Merrill.

I've been relating recently to the lyrics of David Bowie when he sang, “Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes… Time may change me, but I can’t trace time.” What these words say to me is that, over time, people and places transform—sometimes it happens quickly, sometimes it’s long and thought out. Washington, DC, and its residents are great examples of both. Both the development and marketing of the real estate landscape here continue to be awe-inspiring.
As we watch the top agents blaze new trails with inventive ways to help their clients sell their homes, we also see how the city and its suburbs steadily evolve. New luxury high-rises and retail are bringing a vibrant energy to their neighborhoods—and that is a change worth supporting. Much like real estate, healthcare is another area that is undergoing unprecedented change. In the Washington area, Inova Women’s Hospital is leading the charge. It is fresh, it is cutting edge, and it is where I want to be if I ever need health, wellness, or wait for it... beauty services. Yes! They have a gorgeous new med spa offering the latest advancements in services.
I hope you enjoy these next few months of spring, and be sure to check out this site for all the wonderful cultural happenings that only a city like DC can offer. And with the closing of this Late Spring issue, I am happy to announce a change of my own, as I assume the role of Capitol File’s publisher.
