Top Agent, Washingtonian

What makes you different than other real estate agents?

I understand construction processes very well, as my resume includes serving as project manager for one of the area’s top luxury builders. Whether it’s a simple cosmetic renovation or new build from the ground up, I can help my clients bring projects in on time and within their budget. I can quickly identify quality builds if it’s a turnkey solution or assist in the design/renovation phase for an existing home so that my clients maximize their investment.

What’s a challenge that you’ve faced in your life and how did you overcome it?

Prior to joining TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, I was an associate with a Sotheby’s affiliate in a completely different market. The needs of our growing family brought my wife and me back to the D.C. area. Starting over was a bit overwhelming, but I credit my once being a “newbie” in the D.C. area as the proponent for knowing the region so well. That knowledge helps me better assist my clients in the same situation. Years of research and discovery allow me to better understand and exceed client expectations.

What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?

Whether you’re buying or selling a home, for most people it’s not only a daunting task but one of the most significant financial decisions of their lives. The ability to deliver a successful and seamless result is extremely satisfying for me. For my sellers, it’s getting their home sold in the least amount of time for a sales price beyond their expectations. For my buyer clients, it’s finding “the one”— the home that checks off all the boxes and they can happily call home.
