Welcome to my website. As a Realtor® licensed in Maryland, I work with sellers, buyers, and renters wishing to sell and purchase single family homes, townhouses, and condos. I am also a rental specialist and a senior real estate specialist. My office is near a premier senior living community located on Leisure World Blvd. in Silver Spring.
Whether you are thinking of buying, selling, or renting, the first step is to get as much information as possible. For a free consultation or home market analysis, please call me at (240) 447-7872 or email me. I can answer any questions you may have about market trends, home valuations, or any other real estate related questions. I am ready when you are to help with your real estate needs.
Dedicated to providing the best possible professional service to clients buying, selling or renting a home utilizing my neighborhood knowledge, negotiating and interpersonal skills, prompt personal response and coordination, all culminating in a successful transaction

Long before I joined Weichert Realtors I had become interested in real estate. I had always read real estate topics. Over the years I had previewed homes attending local Sunday open houses and spoken with other Realtors. I enjoy meeting and assisting people and home maintenance. No wonder I enjoy home inspections today. My roles as a teacher and computer programmer have provided me essential skills in today's real estate world.
Personal interests include language and American History. I enjoy visiting our numerous history sites and am a member of a local history club and book club.
I put my client first. I am always thinking of you and make myself accessible to you. I accommodate my times to your times. I am available for personal discussion and sessions when you are. I will listen to you and communicate with you frequently as well as educate and advise you throughout your buying or selling transaction. I consider the number of clients I can effectively work with. I do not overburden myself where my service to you would be compromised. Contact with you is always personal, unlike with teams where you may not know who you will be working with. This is one way I believe I am providing you the best possible service.

Before I became an agent I visited local open houses and observed agents affiliated with a number of Brokers. It became apparent that Weichert Realtors would be my choice for training and affiliation.
Jim Weichert started in New Jersey in 1969 and now with more than 18,000 agents in over 490 offices and franchises.
Weichert is a "full service" company providing a complete range of personal services for buyers and sellers using its stream-lined "one-stop" shopping program of products and services. Weichert agents have contacts with all the services a buyer or seller needs in the course of a transaction. A lender is onsite, and buyers may visit my office and speak with our Financial Officer regarding a range of loan options and apply for a loan assisted by him in person in my office. It is the personal contact instead of an 800 number. Weichert has affiliated contacts with home insurance companies, a legal, and title company for settlement, title insurance and home warranty once a buyer is in his home. My knowing these contacts and affiliates and seeing them allows me to assist my home buyers through the process.
Another reason I selected Weichert is because Jim Weichert and the company is committed to training me as a professional throughout my career. In-house sessions are designed to sharpen my skills and impart new ideas and keep me up to date on current and approaches and changes in the real estate industry. This is in addition to the biennial training all Maryland agents must attend.
My Weichert Office is located off Georgia Ave in the Leisure World Plaza shopping center with a second office within the Leisure World Administration Building.
