Almost a native of the Washington, D.C. area, Gretchen has lived in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C. since she was four years old. In her other lives, Gretchen worked on Capitol Hill as an administrative assistant to a Member of Congress, in a non-profit agency monitoring state and federal elections, and at a private school in the development office. Gretchen has over 30 years experience in residential real estate. While consistently ranking in the top 1% of all Realtors nationwide, Gretchen takes most pride in awards/aknowledgements that also take client satisfaction into account. She believe that "it's not how much you sell, it's how well you sell." She believes in "hands on" service and her clients know that they can depend on her both during a transaction and whenever they have a real estate related need or concern.
Grertchen's commitment to her craft has been recognized by many and for several years she donated her time to teaching new real estate agents how to be successful, especially in the area of contract knowledge. It is not unusual for her to be called upon by colleagues (even those from other brokerages) when they have questions about how to proceed with a transaction.
A Washington DC native, Kevin grew up in Chevy Chase View in Kensington. In high school, he attended Georgetown Day school in Northwest, DC. An avid soccer player, Kevin was recruited to play at Stanford University. While in the heart of Silicon Valley, he took great interest in the blossoming Internet start-ups. He decided to pursue a degree in e-commerce and marketing while minoring in Spanish. After graduating in 2002, Kevin joined Gretchen, and started applying some of the same successful marketing models he had studied and witnessed first-hand to real estate. What has evolved is a program of highly successful customized marketing campaigns. With over 15 years of experience (30 years, by osmosis through Gretchen’s work), Kevin’s tremendous success speaks to his people skills and his quick grasp of this complicated business. While specializing in luxury residential sales, Kevin is also involved in development projects in both D.C. and Montgomery County.
