Welcome Home

Celebrate Life and Home combines two of my passions:  Real Estate Agent and Wedding Officiant. Both serve my belief that establishing a home with love and stability where friends and family will always be welcome is the foundation of our thriving community.

Real Estate

Buying or selling a home is an important business decision and financial process.  Facilitating your home needs, wants, and goals requires dependable information from a respected agent and real estate firm.  With Ron Petrella and Pearson-Smith Realty you are in amazing hands.  As a licensed Realtor and Loudoun native, I have experienced the growth of our eclectic community.  My wife, Diane, and I are blessed to have raised our children here, work, play, and serve this community.  Real Estate is an extension of my career as a school teacher/coach/administrator, and community activist.  It is about providing options and the determination to maximize the realization of your goals.  With over $20 million in transactions, my experience is your gain.

My highest priority is to serve you professionally with loyalty, character, and dedication.  I realize that buying or selling a home is also a very emotional experience.  I take great pride in my ability to treat clients with empathy and represent their interests with complete trust and compassion.  Your home purchase is also my Celebration.


(Benefiting the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Loudoun, which I have hosted since 2003, at Heritage HS)

I began officiating weddings in 2005.  In September 2021, I performed my 1000th ceremony.  It was extra special, as it was for the daughter of our childhood friends Mike and Virginia.  Officiating for Allison's wedding was amazing on so many levels.  My passion is to develop and facilitate ceremonies specific to each couple.  Your wedding should be what ever you desire.  From elopements, to grand events with hundreds of guests, all weddings are celebrations of compassion and love.  As a healthy cancer survivor (2004), I decided to officiate weddings and donate my fees to the American Cancer Society.  In turn, every wedding is a Celebration that benefits those effected by cancer.  Wedding serve as a personal reminder to me of the importance of love, family, home, and how blessed I am to them every day.  So excited my Nick and Mandy Olive Wedding was selected as a "Favorite Wedding of 2016", by  What a special couple.  I was honored by www.weddingwire as their 2018 Couples' Choice Award winner!  Given to the top five percent of wedding professionals for demonstrating excellence in quality, service, and professionalism within the wedding industry.
