PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:
Lee specializes in representing buyers and sellers of premier homes in the Washington metropolitan region. With nearly $300 million in sales to date and many years of experience, she has represented clients in every field and all price ranges, and they have returned to her time and again when they have decided to purchase or sell another home. She prides herself on superior customer service.

Lee has been consistently ranked in the top 20 in Individual Sales Volume since 2014 for the Washington, DC, area by Real Trends, as featured in The Wall Street Journal. The Washingtonian magazine named her a “Best Real Estate Agent” in 2017, and she has been named a “Top Producing Agent” by the Washingtonian since the awards' inception in 2015.

In 2012, Lee joined Washington Fine Properties [WFP], after ten years selling real estate in the DC area. WFP is widely recognized in the Washington region as one of the most successful, locally owned, carriage-trade real estate firms in the United States. The firm had a sales volume of $2.7 billion in 2017.

Regularly selling around $35 million in sales annually, Lee’s record places her among the very top Realtors in the Mid-Atlantic region. Her insistence on professional service has brought her many awards and recognition, but most importantly it has produced a client base of satisfied homeowners who refer her to their friends and colleagues. Her dedication to maintaining these life-long relationships serves to underscore her business philosophy: providing her clients with expert knowledge, savvy guidance, skilled negotiation and personal integrity.

Lee moved to Washington, DC, in the late 1990s and worked for Members of Congress in communications. Prior to that, she spent many years abroad in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. A native sixth-generation Texan, Lee received her undergraduate degree in International Studies and French from Austin College and the American University in Cairo. She received her Master of Arts degree from the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.

Lee’s community involvement includes volunteer work with the Junior League of Washington, where she is a Sustaining Member, the Daughters of the American Revolution and the National Women’s History Museum.

Lee’s team is led by Shaye Zakotnik as Operations Manager. Shaye brings over eight years of experience in real estate, most recently in the high-end residential market in Key West, Florida. A native of Maryland, she graduated from Salisbury University and currently lives in the District. In her spare time, Shaye enjoys travel, hiking, diving and cooking.

Other members of Lee’s team include stagers, photographers, videographers, designers and tradespeople.
