A 10th-generation Washingtonian, Connie has a lifetime of local market knowledge, helping sellers in all areas and all price ranges. In addition Connie has lived all over the world (Japan, Australia, UK, New York City) in more than 30 residences, so she understands the demands on buyers, helping them to sort through the myriad of details required to select and buy a home at the best possible price. She prides herself on thinking out of the box, really looking for the best place for each of her buyer clients. Her family network in Washington, DC, is extensive.
Connie has been a licensed real estate agent since 1987, formerly with the Corcoran Group in New York, and with Washington Fine Properties since 2000. Prior to her real estate career, Connie worked in broadcasting with ABC News 20/20 and was Creative Director at Burson Marsteller Public Relations. She is also the Founder/President of Australian Great Estates, a premium wine-importing company.
