Brightening Lives - One Room at a Time
As many of you may already know, the owners of Loudoun Property Solutions, Doug and Esme Guevara, have a special needs son, Joel. His diagnosis has truly made them appreciate the value of life. Joel was diagnosed with a rare disorder, KCNQ2, which is a gene involved in the proper functioning of a potassium channel in the brain. KCNQ2 developmental and epileptic encephalopathy causes seizures during infancy and developmental disabilities ranging from mild to severe. Inspired by Joel’s smile and determination, Doug and his wife, Esme, decided that they wanted to find a way to brighten the lives of other special needs children and their families by using LPS expertise to transform bedrooms of special needs children into bright, happy places where they can live and learn.
That is why they launched a very special program in February 2020, Joel’s Creative Touch, especially for the special needs family community here in Loudoun County, VA.
Knowing that some children have to spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, this program aims to make those rooms a sanctuary and a happy place for the whole family to hang out! At least once a month, LPS will select a qualifying special needs child to receive a free room makeover!

We look forward to seeing some BIG smiles!
