Q: What do you feel distinguishes you from other Realtors?

A: I’m a 5th-generation Washingtonian – Jessie, my daughter and partner, is a 6th-generation – and we have 44 years of combined experience as local Realtors. We understand the real estate market in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia and what it takes to buy and sell successfully here. We’re committed to our clients and they know that we’ll always work hard to deliver the best results for them. Our colleagues also respect our work ethic, which is very helpful during negotiations.

Q: What do you find most challenging about your job?

A: The real estate market is always changing – market conditions, activity, technology. Over the years we’ve witnessed incredible growth in Bethesda, Potomac, D.C. and Northern Virginia and watched area real estate values rise. But we’ve also lived through market downturns. Transition can be exciting, but it’s also challenging. It’s critical to be able to adapt and to provide your clients with the professional guidance they need to be successful in any kind of market.

Q: What else is there about you that potential clients might want to know?


A: Both Jessie and I were raised in the D.C. metropolitan area and have strong connections to the community. I’m proud to have served as president of the prestigious Kiwanis Club of Washington and the Potomac Chamber of Commerce, which awarded me Business Person of the Year. Our success in real estate is the result of continued community support over the years. We’re both very grateful for that and are committed to giving back
