How can I help you?
If you are buying or selling a house or apartment, I offer high quality real estate services in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
Next year, my real estate license will turn 30, which is older than some of my colleagues. During the last three decades, I’ve worked with the areas top firms. and now I am lucky to be associated with Evers and Company. I’m licensed in DC, Maryland and Virginia, specializing in residential property. While I do list property for sale, my focus in on buyer brokerage, and I am one of the agent’s who pioneered it’s practice in the DC area.
While I’ve been licensed, I’ve made a practice of learning a new neighborhood each month, and by now, I do know the territory.
I’m also a published author. In my spare time, I am working on the second edition of The Irreverent Guide to Real Estate, and I have fun blogging on Active Rain, a site for real estate professionals around the country.
Before real estate, I was a senior staffer at the former Civil Aeronautics Board where I supervised the staff that drafted the federal regulations covering an airline’s responsibility toward passengers for lost luggage, oversold flights, delays and cancellations and other travel woes. Most of these regulations survived airline deregulation, and I wrote the notice to passengers about oversold flights that still appears on all airline ticket envelopes. In the ‘70s, I was the associate director of Ralph Nader’s Aviation Consumer Action Project. During that time, I served on Department of State teams that negotiated aviation treaties with Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Israel. I was a frequent guest on the MacNeil-Lehrer News Hour and was the subject of a Time Life TV Documentary on “A Day in the Life of a Nader’s Raider.”
I attended the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore and have a Bachelor’s degree from Hunter College with a double major in Political Science and Flute. I studied flute with Britten Johnson, Julius Baker and Jean-Pierre Rampal.
I have played the flute professionally with a number of area chamber groups, including the Washington Bach Consort, the Wolf Trap Chamber Players and the Masterworks Chorus Orchestra. I currently perform with a trio that has provided chamber music for several clients’ weddings and other festive events. I live in Northwest Washington in an old house near Rock Creek Park with a large, Labradoodle puppy named Willie. I am active in the Crestwood Neighborhood Association and the Washington Area Women’s Foundation.
