"I've bought or sold 8 houses in my life and my experience with the Shorb Team was the best. They listen well, follow through impeccably, and were very helpful with out of town details (getting an alarm installed and selling a piano). All this, on top of selling the house in that first few days, $100k over my asking price. Very professional and service-oriented. I'd recommend them highly to others."
"So grateful to the team for all their help in selling my condo, which failed to sell last year, with a different realtor. I truly appreciated their responsiveness, their communication skills, and Compass fronting the bill for the staging! They always knew they could sell my un-sellable unit. And they did! Here's to the Shorb team: Hip, hip, hurray!"
"Ellie is a pro! She not only has a firm grasp of the real estate market and process, she has a can-do attitude for her clients with no ask too great. She is there for you every step of the way - with a smile. She made the process of getting our house ready for market less stressful and she had fantastic ideas to making it look its best. Having our house under contract in 4 days is a testament to her expertise and professionalism. Ellie has the right combination of knowledge, skills, and style when it comes to selling or buying your home. She is the best!"
"The Shorb Team helped us purchase our dream home! They were patient as we toured each home comparing pros and cons of each in detail, and helped us envision improvements where possible. The team provided sound advice throughout our house search and helped calm nerves during an intense inspection! They checked in with us regularly to make sure we were comfortable with each step of the process. They explained the things we didn't understand in terms that we did, and handled themselves professionally. We couldn't have asked for a better team to assist us, and couldn't be happier than we are in our new home!"
"Anne is a pleasure to work with. She is professional, compassionate with us as we were selling our mother's home in Spring Valley, and patient- handling all the details of preparing our mother's Spring Valley home for sale. Since I lived out of town, Anne handled the contractors for me, and even arranged for sale and donation of items we could not take with us. She listened to our needs, acted on them in a professional manner, and sold our house in just a few days well above our asking price. I highly recommend her.
"Anne was endlessly patient and thorough in helping me to find my new home. We compared different neighborhoods, and in the end Anne helped us to win in a competitive bidding situation. Making a stressful process easier with her calm and positive demeanor and willingness to explain every step in the process. She helped us to feel confident and excited about moving forward. She is a pro.
About The Shorb Team
We value creating lasting connections with our clients and our community. The Shorb Team at Compass was founded by Ellie Shorb, a real estate veteran, at an inflection point in the DC area residential marketplace. "Today, in our area, home buyers, sellers, and renters are informed, motivated, and tech-savvy customers. Yet, with the pace of today’s market, there can be constraints on our clients’ time and roadblocks in the process that requires expert attention to move swiftly - that's when it's important to have a team of Realtors on your side” Ellie says.
We scour the active and coming soon inventory daily and tour listings weekly to discover new market indicators, analyze those, prepare our clients and their homes for the needs and expectations of today’s buyer, and expertly negotiate the offer terms. Our tools and personal connections with other Realtors often reveal upcoming inventory before it hits the market. Our tailored buyer process and home search alert technology help clients quickly hone-in on their perfect home. For our sellers our team employs home staging and renovation concierge, bridge loan financing, compass privacy exclusives, plus a national network of Realtors to connect the dots for our clients.
With 19 years of combined real estate experience, our team of Realtors, Ellie Shorb, Anne Harrison, and Megan Evans are passionate about this work and each client is handled with discretion and utmost care. We commit to helping our clients navigate every step of the real estate journey. Clients of the Shorb Team can expect a high-touch experience tailored specifically to their individual needs and skilled operational support from our transaction’s manager, Taytiana Milicevic in English or Spanish.
Our commitment to our clients includes responsibility to our larger community. Ellie is deeply involved in the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors (GCAAR), serving on committees and investing in the Realtor Political Action Committee (RPAC), keeping property rights and homeownership services at the forefront. The team highlights the accomplishments and gifts of area philanthropists in the video series #DoingGoodinDC found under the Menu tab of this site. Each team member is committed to giving back to our community in meaningful ways and every Shorb Team sale results in a donation to a local DMV charity.
