Q: What changes have you seen recently in the local real estate market?

A: COVID has made the already-tight housing inventory in the DMV even tighter. With many more people working from home, schooling their kids at home and just spending more time at home, single-family homes are fulfilling more needs than they ever did before. Buyers are now wanting more space, so they’re moving farther out to get larger homes at more affordable prices.

Not all areas of the market are seeing increased demand, though. High-rise condominiums have suffered, since buyers want to avoid shared spaces like lobbies, pools and gyms. They’re looking instead at townhomes or low-rise condominiums with individual entries. And with people avoiding community pools, demand for home swimming pools has soared.

Q: What sets you and Jessie apart from other Realtors®?

A: Our family goes back six generations in the Washington, D.C. area. With both of us born and raised here, we know and love the area like only native Washingtonians can. We’re familiar with the neighborhoods, schools and back roads of Maryland, D.C. and Northern Virginia and we understand what it takes to buy and sell successfully in all three jurisdictions.

Our success in real estate is due to ongoing support from the community, and we’re committed to giving back. I’m a longtime member and past president of the Kiwanis Club of Washington. I was also named Business Person of the Year by the Potomac Chamber of Commerce, and currently serve on their board.
