The only thing constant is change."Heraclitus, an ancient Greek philosopher, is credited with this statement and it remains true today. The sale or purchase of real estate occurs because something is changing in the lives of buyers and sellers. Whether or not it's planned, it can be challenging, especially if done without a real estate professional. I'm here to help manage your real estate-related change in a way that ensures you are informed and always in control.

Empowering people to recognize they can achieve greatness-- and then to help them achieve it -- is my greatest joy. I have a unique ability to understand people, the challenges they need to solve to move forward in their lives. I've helped interpret American culture for my immigrant family, navigate Federal export programs for American farmers, transform D.C. trade associations to be more effective, de-mystify for others what it's like to be gay, and coach sellers and buyers through the real estate maze.

I care about the best interests of those I represent, first and foremost. Whether you are buying or selling a home, I am committed to working with you to get you from where you are to where you want to be, and do so on your timetable. What I do resonates with people so well that over 90% of my annual business is from repeat clients, family and friends they've referred, and referrals from other agents. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to help people every day. It gives me great satisfaction and motivates me to get up each day to do it again. I love this life.

Over 500 sales (both sellers and buyers) in nearly twenty yearsas a full-time Realtor® with a 90%+ referral rate attests to the fact that not only do I get clients where they want to be, but that their experience with me was so positive they come back to do it again and trust me to help their family and friends. Licensed in both Virginia and Washington, D.C., I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your real estate goals and how I can help you achieve them. Please contact me for a no-cost, no-pressure initial consultation.
