I started my real estate business in October 2013 after a difference-making career as a Washington, D.C. public interest lawyer. For 13 years, I worked for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, fighting to reduce the scourge of gun violence on a national level. I also worked for organizations to protect voting rights and advocate around federal judgeships and issues before the U.S. Supreme Court.
I bring the same commitment and tenacity to helping clients buy or sell homes that I did when I battled the gun industry in court. My legal background is an invaluable resource for my real estate clients.
I have received numerous honors as my business has grown. I was recognized Washingtonian Magazine as a Top Producer in only my third year, and I have continued to receive that honor each year since. I have also been recognized as a Top Producer Arlington Magazine, and Zillow has awarded me Best in Customer Service, Master of Client Happiness, and Best of Zillow.
One of my greatest strengths is my responsiveness and communication skills. I put my clients’ interests first, always working to achieve the best results for them. I think strategically when it comes to writing contracts and negotiating the best deal for home sellers. When you hire me as your realtor, you know you have a strong and skilled advocate on your side.
After five strong years at McEnearney, I joined Compass in March 2019 so my clients could take advantage of the many benefits Compass offers to home buyers and sellers. I have recently teamed up with Felicia Brewster, who is also licensed in Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Maryland.
In addition to providing my own expertise, I have excellent connections with a wide range of industry professionals I enlist to help clients buy and sell homes, including lenders, title companies, home inspectors, , stagers, and others.
I grew up in the Midwest, lived 10 years in Washington State, then came to Washington, D.C. in 1986. I met my wife Linda at American University, Washington College of Law, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1990. We have two adopted children.
As a Realtor®, my greatest joy is helping people make the same life transitions that I have experienced.
