Metropolitan Area for the last 42 Years. We are a locally based, family owned community management and
real estate brokerage with over 42 years of experience expertly supporting our valued clients and
communities in the Metropolitan Washington areas. Our focus is local. We don't try to be everything
to everyone. But to those we support, we give 100% and the difference is amazing.
42 years ago, our Founder and current CEO Steve Landsman started helping neighbors take better care of their

Maryland, DC and Virginia, we Sell and List Residential Real Estate and help individual property Owners find
the best tenants, ensure each home is maintained effectively and that investors have a simple and easy way
to own investment property.
In this day and age of large, impersonal, disconnected real estate corporations with multiple customer service
departments, our hands on and personal approach to everything we do will make you feel right at home.
Our company is one of very few left that employs multiple generations of family members and treats each one
like family. The average tenure of our family staff members is 20 years, with many having been with us for
30 years or more. This type of solidarity makes a huge difference in the service and support we provide our clients.
We're passionate about real estate and our local communities. But our favorite part is matching buyers and tenants
to the right home and sellers to the right buyers. Here's how that works: If you're buying a home, we'll connect you
with the resources you need. If you're selling your home, we'll show you what our marketing can do. If you own an
investment property, well help you find the best tenants and maximize your return on investment while removing the
typical day to day headaches of being a landlord.
And if you need advice or just want to talk, we'll always be there to pick up the phone.
