[xsl] attribute selection

I have an xml fragment such as:

     <property name="name1" value="value1" />
     <property name="name2" value="value2" />

...with many such property elements inside the elem1 element.

I want to print the value of the 'value' attribute for the property 
element that has a name of 'name1'.  So far I've been doing it this way:

<xsl:for-each select="./elem1/property[./@name='name1']">
    <b><xsl:value-of select="@value"/></b>

But it seems like there should be a more concise way of doing this, 
especially since I know that my input document will only have one 
property element with a matching "@name='name1'" attribute.
