Who We Are

Ed Moore III


Ed brings a regionally renowned reputation for land development, preservation, farming and community, with 40 years of experience, working with land developers, civil engineers, general contractors, municipalities, government agencies, national home builders, and individual homeowners. He believes that development should be about balance, dedicating his time to preserving natural and historic lands, volunteering in the community and creating real places for people to live and raise their children. 

Ed’s career began with Peterson Companies and KETTLER where he orchestrated some of the largest developments in Northern Virginia. In 1997, he started Piedmont Land Group, a land-development consulting company. He then purchased Edward R. Moore, Jr. & Associates, LLC, a land and easement-acquisition company, specializing in water and sewer easements for municipalities and authorities throughout Virginia, founded and owned by his father in 1973. The company is now operating as ERM & Associates under the ownership of Craig Anderson, one of our most trusted associates. 

Ed’s responsibilities have included land acquisition, rezoning, engineering, plan approvals, bond release, land development, and political partnerships, as well as the creation and management of dozens of HOAs. 

Ed lives in Fauquier County with his wife Tammy. Together they have raised 4 children who still reside in the county as well. He enjoys being outside, camping, fishing, and farming, as well as spending time with his 2 grandchildren.

Lauren Stubbs

Vice President

Born and raised in Northern Virginia, Lauren Stubbs grew up immersed in the world of land development. Her father and grandfather established locally recognized careers in brokerage and development, and from a young age she took interest in the field. Working for Brookside Communities and Vint Hill, along with later pursuing her real estate license, she has combined her natural and professional experience to become a well-rounded leader within the company, as comfortable in boardrooms as on a construction site. Lauren is detail-oriented, intrinsically motivated, and has a strong ability to multitask. She problem-solves with ease, and takes great pride in her ability to attend to clients and their interests with vigilance. She has spent most of her life in Fauquier County, and after having her son, she knew that this was where she wanted to raise him. 

Lauren is involved in the community, in support of education, community outreach, and animal rescue. When it is time to relax, she enjoys horseback riding, boating, and beach trips with her husband and son.
