How did you get started in real estate? I started out as an investor. In looking for suitable properties, I spoke to a lot of Realtors, and along the way realized a career in real estate sales gave me an opportunity to combine my interests in real estate with my sales and marketing background. I got my license in 2001 and was my office’s Rookie of the Year. My brother, Steve, joined me the following year, and we formally launched the Wydler Brothers Realty Team a couple of years later. Today we are one of the top-producing teams in the region. Steve heads the McLean office; I head the Bethesda team, and we have a great team 13 people strong. We are ranked No. 2 out of 10,000 Long & Foster agents (YTD 2010) and love what we do!
