New House Appliances

        On our builder's recommendation, we are selecting our appliances with the help of Chris Bove of Foremost Appliances (703-968-8079), 14501-D Lee Jackson Memorial Highway, Chantilly, VA, 20151. Chris and the folks at Foremost are very well informed people, and we recommend Foremost to everyone in the area who needs new appliances. Their showroom is not large, but they have excellent prices and they have the largest selection and the best technical sales team.
