A native of the area, Marc has spent nearly his entire life in Northern Virginia, minus his college years at Virginia Tech and a quick “post-college” stint in Charlotte, NC. Although originally from Reston, Marc has lived in many cities, neighborhoods and zip codes in “NOVA”, creating a true awareness and understanding of many areas in the DC Metropolitan Area.
Marc’s personal and professional goal in Real Estate is to provide exceptional customer service and treat all clients how he would want to be treated. He believes the most important first step in the real estate journey is to personally relate to each and every client specifically, as different people will have different expectations. Next, his goal is to provide as much information, insight, personal experience and consulting to his clients to set them up for success, all while accommodating their most critical real estate needs.
In his property management role, Marc assists in maximizing the marketability of properties on the market for rent and he establishes a regular and proactive communication channel with both landlords and prospective tenants. Marc provides showing activity information and feedback to landlords weekly to keep them well informed as to the status of their home while on the market for rent. Once a lease is signed, Marc ensures the tenants are prepared for their move-in logistics and he will coordinate a smooth transition for our landlords to our post-lease Client Care Team. Marc raises the bar on quick communications and client response during the leasing process, and is one of the reasons no one has better metrics than Chambers Theory for leasing services in the DC Metropolitan Area.
