How did you get started in real estate? As a native of England, I started working in residential real estate with my father in Marbella, Spain, before moving to the states 20 years ago.

How long have you been with the current company?10 years

Licenses and designations: Licensed in the District, Maryland and Virginia as an associate broker; graduate, Realtor Institute; Seniors Real Estate Specialist

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: My greatest accomplishments in the last 12 months involve my international clientele moving to the Washington area. With diverse cultural backgrounds, I had to interpret their styles. I also had to be very hands-on throughout the entire transaction.

Area of specialty: Northwest Washington and lower Montgomery County

Highest-priced home sold: $3,300,000

Most memorable house: The most memorable is the house that my clients walk into and you see in their eyes that this is the one.

Worst experience buying or selling a house: A seller decided to list with me but had certain conditions: no sign on the property, no lockbox on the property, and no people walking through the house. I asked, “How do you expect me to sell your house if people cannot come through it?” I solved the problem by getting an appraiser in the home and buying it myself as an investment property!

Describe your personal dream house: The one with my wife in it - could even be a tent
