I have been a real estate agent for the past 18 years, licensed in DC, MD and VA with a very different approach to real estate sales. For me, real estate sales are all about customer loyalty, integrity, knowledge, experience and good old fashioned hard work.
Every client is a potential referral source for future business. My tag line – Your Personal Realtor – is not just a description but more of a mission statement.

Your Personal Realtor
So a little more about me. I am a husband, a father, a Realtor, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, published author, real estate subject matter expert, world traveler and all around foodie, pretty much in that order. I was born in Israel, moved to Zimbabwe for 5 years, then to NYC (specifically Queens), college in Boston and finally moved to Washington DC where I’ve lived ever since (of course there was that one year I took off to sail the Caribbean with my best friend in the early 90’s but that’s another matter altogether). DC has been, is and always will be my home.
At the core of it all is my family. See them on the right – my wife Jodi, son Eli and daughter Talia. I realized years ago that in order to be successful in business and life one has to achieve balance.
Early on in my career I fell into the trap of making my clients priority number one and everything else was second. The problem with taking that approach is that burnout sets in pretty quickly. Once that happens its a pretty quick downward spiral to disaster. You’re tired, unhappy, and ultra-low on energy. Turns out clients don’t really like those qualities in their Realtor, or any other professional for that matter.
So with that in mind I learned to prioritize and to organize. By doing that I was able to significantly increase the quality of my life and ultimately bring a much higher level of focus and energy to my clients. I regularly spend quality time with my family and I work out religiously and fanatically (take care of your body and your body will take care of you) so this way when I’m with my clients they have my undivided attention and energy.
It’s been a very successful approach and one that has created long lasting relationships with my clients. It’s very common for my clients to not only refer their friends and family to me but to also stay in touch on real estate and other matters. To me they are more than “clients” they are part of my extended family. To them I am their trusted advisor, friend, confidante, part-time therapist, coach, resource to a list of professionals, in short – their Personal Realtor.
