The DC area has always been dominated by a transient population, so finding a local guide can be an invaluable way to get your bearings. This is just one of many reasons that Maryland native and second-generation Realtor Joshua Harrison has become a respected voice in local real estate.
Harrison grew up spending afternoons at his parent’s Maryland-based real estate office—absorbing their more than 80 years of combined real estate experience—before becoming an agent in 1994. He launched his career at Realty Executives, and more recently joined Long & Foster's managing broker Holly Worthington at the firm’s Chevy Chase and Woodley Park offices, in 2009. Harrison came on board as the company’s top transfer agent that year. He is now the number one agent at Long & Foster’s Chevy Chase office.
“I really enjoy working with people,” says Harrison, “and being an agent in DC, Maryland and Virginia means working with people from all over the world. It’s a very unique and ever-changing population.”
Harrison developed an international niche, becoming a trusted agent for many at the World Bank and IMF, including top leaders in both organizations. As such, neighborhoods in upper Northwest DC, Northern Virginia and Montgomery County have become focal points for the agent, who handled over $27 million in sales in 2013.
“It is rare to encounter an agent who considers the satisfaction of his clients with such reverence," says Worthington. "Despite his easy going manner, Josh takes his real estate service seriously and his clients truly benefit. It is why he has a huge loyal following of past and current clients. I admire his honesty, his insight and his work ethic.”
Harrison grew up in Maryland, but has lived in DC’s Penn Quarter and now resides in the upper northwest neighborhood of Hawthorne with his wife and two daughters. He is licensed in DC, Maryland and Virginia.
