While living in Vienna she established an extensive background in the Northern Virginia housing industry with over twenty years experience working for developers and building contractors. Penny began her career in real estate in 1988 when she became a licensed real estate agent. In addition to being a realtor herself, she also was an assistant to several of the top producing real estate agents in Fairfax County, where she learned that commitment to customer service is the key to a successful business.
Penny has earned many distinctions for her real estate success, receiving the “Beyond Excellence Award” while working as an agent for ERA Holden Group, as well as being one of the top producing agents in the Lake of the Woods area for the past six years. Currently serving the greater Fredericksburg and Culpepper area, Penny is a top producing agent for Coldwell Banker Elite, the premier Coldwell Banker Company in the state of Virginia. In 2011 Penny earned membership in the “International Sterling Society” a distinguished honor presented to only a select group of top sales associates across the globe, and on 2012 she was awarded the “International Diamond Society” award.

Charlie Ostlund recently retired from forty years in education to join his wife Penny in real estate as the “Ostlund Team”.

Prior to his role at Oakton High School Charlie was the Director of Student Activities at James Madison High School, classroom teacher, and coach. His career with Fairfax County Schools spanned from 1973 until 2004.
After retiring from Fairfax County, Charlie worked as an Adjunct Professor for the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education and returned to his roots as a classroom teacher for The James Monroe High School in Fredericksburg where he taught for seven years.
He plans on using his vast experience in dealing with people and problem solving in assisting people in the greater Northern Virginia area with their real estate needs.
Penny and Charlie are the proud parents of three young men. Her son Chad and his wife Beth recently moved to Chantilly from Florida with their two granddaughters, Maya and Ellie. Michael, a middle school math teacher, lives in Florida, and their youngest son Ryan, makes his home in Virginia at Lake of the Woods, with his wife and children, Xavier, Trinity and Reagan.
Rachel has been a Virginia resident her entire life, and a real estate agent since 2014. She moved to the Fredericksburg area in 1998, and earned her degree in Anthropology from The University of Mary Washington in 2012. She and her husband settled in the Fredericksburg area due to their love of the great food in the Downtown restaurants, excellent local wineries and breweries, and all of the opportunities to explore the outdoors. They live with their two cats in Ruther Glen.
She joined The Ostlund Team in June 2015. Before her work in real estate, she worked in the customer service industry as a general manager. In that industry, she honed skills that she is able to apply every day while working with The Ostlund Team. During her time as a full-time real estate agent, Rachel enjoyed working with first-time home buyers the most and guiding them through the new process.
She now assists The Ostlund Team in contract management and working with all parties of the transaction to ensure a smooth process.
