I have been an active agent in the DC and Maryland suburbs since 2004. My knowledge of the area is home grown. I was born in Washington DC and I have lived here all my life. I know the main roads but more importantly I know the short cuts. Our biggest issue in this area is traffic. Working in DC has challenges. Where you work will be one factor in where you choose to live. Getting from one to the other will have a significant impact on your life. Take it from a native Washingtonian, your lifestyle will be impacted. It is no surprise that every broker will give you access to listings. They all use the same database for that. The item that sets some above others is not the bells and whistles. It is the actual knowledge your agent has about the area. I would love to use my knowledge to help you.
