Home Services

With our Home Services Connections Group, we can recommend excellent service providers who can assist you in home maintenance, repairs and upgrades to everything in your home (including the kitchen sink).  Our partnerships with some of the region's top service providers make us a convenient, single stop when you're ready to get work done on your home.


Due to the international nature of the Internet, we are experiencing an increase of both national and international buyers.  We offer relocation services to buyers both inside and outside the US.  Additionally, we often see homebuyers and sellers moving inside or outside the Beltway.

As a full service brokerage firm, we are the dominant player in the local market, which increases the likelihood that national and international relocation buyers will see our listings first.  We provide expert assistance with international relocation challenges.  We have over 250 offices in major cities and throughout the region.

What is a REALTOR® and Why do I need one?

Only real estate professionals who are members of the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) can call themselves REALTORS®.

All REALTORS® adhere to NAR's strict Code of Ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public.  That's why all real estate licensees are NOT the same.
Dedicated to serving America's property owners at both local and national levels, the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, The Voice for Real Estate® is the largest professional association at over 800,000 members strong.

Whether you're buying or selling a home -- it pays to work with a REALTOR®. Look for the REALTOR® logo when choosing your real estate agent.
