On a personal level, who am I, you ask. It’s a fair question since I get to know more about my clients than most people do. Buying or selling a home is a very personal matter and I get to see people at their best and sometimes their worst. The stress of it all can get to some and I try to be that consistent, calming force to help get them through it all.
So a little more about me. I am a husband, a father, a son, a Realtor, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner, published author, real estate subject matter expert, world traveler and all around foodie, pretty much in that order. I was born in Israel, moved to Zimbabwe for 5 years, then to NYC (specifically Queens), college in Boston and finally moved to Washington DC where I’ve lived ever since (of course there was that one year I took off to sail the Caribbean with my best friend in the early 90’s but that’s another matter altogether). DC has been, is and always will be my home.
At the core of it all is my family: my wife Jodi, son Eli and daughter Talia and family dog Wuzzy. I realized years ago that in order to be successful in business and life one has to achieve balance.
Early on in my career I fell into the trap of making my clients priority number one and everything else was second. The problem with taking that approach is that burnout sets in pretty quickly. Once that happens it’s a pretty quick downward spiral to disaster. You’re tired, unhappy, and ultra-low on energy. Turns out clients don’t really like those qualities in their Realtor, or any other professional for that matter.
So with that in mind I learned to prioritize and to organize. By doing that I was able to significantly increase the quality of my life and ultimately bring a much higher level of focus and energy to my clients.
