Q: What is your expertise and specialties?

A: It’s in the geography I cover—from NW DC to Northern VA and Montgomery County. I specialize in all price ranges with an emphasis on the luxury market, including condos, land acquisition, development and single-family homes in all the metro areas. We have serviced first-time buyers and repeat customers for 36 years and have experienced every market change, so we know what we are doing.

I am supported by a knowledgeable team of agents who specialize in various sub-markets enabling us to know about new listings in advance of the general market. We have strong relationships with home inspectors, contractors, lenders and title companies to help buyers and sellers close during this very demanding time.

Q: What do my clients and customers want to know about most?

A: Currently, the question I get asked the most is, “Should I buy in this current environment?”

The only advantage of waiting is possibly price. That may not be an advantage if inflation increases, because home prices will increase, too. I think there is no time like the present. You cannot replicate the home. Interest rates are low and are predicted to increase. You currently get more house for your money.

Also, if you are selling an existing home, capital gains taxes are scheduled to increase materially, which makes the proceeds from your house sale much smaller.

I continue to have a passion for helping clients realize their dreams.
