Seventeen years ago, the founding partners of DC Living Real Estate, LLC, established the DC area’s first ‘smart’ real estate firm, in which sales professionals worked wherever they went, without the limitations of a singular office. To the partners, a traditional office wasn’t flexible, adaptable, or, above all, convenient for working and living -- and they had the foresight to understand that the traditional office would become increasingly archaic as technology evolved.
“We prefer the idea of ‘Smart Work,’” says Managing Partner/Principal Broker P. L. Skip Singleton, Jr., Esq. “In today’s networked age, we no longer need to travel to work; instead, work travels with us wherever we go. Our agents choose to work more efficiently from home, or anywhere else they would like, rather than wasting hours commuting and unproductive time in the office.”
“Our firm’s business model is designed for efficient service that allows more time and energy to seamlessly deliver a high level of client-first service while enjoying living in this wonderful metropolitan area,” says Skipworth.
DC Living® has always been a client-first firm. Clients appreciate the firm's relationship focus, as well as the efficiency and personal communication offered by DC Living agents. Agents appreciate the work-life balance and flexibility of the firm through their use of technology to work smarter and more efficiently.
“We embrace being a successful independent firm and, despite the numerous attempts to acquire or merge with us, we couldn’t imagine changing our enjoyable and personal way of conducting business,” says Managing Partner Debbie Singleton. Despite its boutique size, DC Living® Professionals have consistently been in the Top 1% of all Realtors for successful annual sales and are annually ranked “Best” by Washingtonian magazine in the DC area.
Partners of the firm include Skip Singleton, Debbie Singleton and Jason Skipworth. Bill Reuther and James Rosebush are Associates who bring years of expertise to round out the dynamic boutique firm.
