For independently owned and locally operated real estate firm DC Living®, their name is representative of a unique approach to the business. “Our business model is designed for our agents, including me and my wife Debbie, to enjoy living while working; hence our firm’s name,” says Managing Partner/Principal Broker P.L. Skip Singleton, Jr., Esq. “Ours is a model of efficiency -- for our professional agents and professional clients. We are proud of the boutique technology-advanced firm we’ve built to allow us the time and energy to enjoy living in this wonderful metropolitan area while seamlessly delivering a high level of customer-first service."
To effectively compete in the DC real estate market, DC Living® has always been among the first to embrace new technology. It was the first ‘smart’ DC Metro area real estate firm, allowing its sales professionals to work anywhere, without the limitations of an office. It was also the first "green," paperless office to use electronic signatures, cloud storage and other time-saving software. Agents appreciate the work-life balance and flexibility of the firm, while clients appreciate both instant personal communication with agents and efficient transactions.
“We've been a successful, independent firm for over 15 years now," says Singleton. "Despite numerous attempts to acquire or merge with us, we couldn’t imagine changing the way we conduct our business." Though the firm is boutique-sized, DC Living® professionals have consistently been ranked in the Top 1% of all Realtors for annual sales and is ranked “Best” in the DC Metro area year after year by Washingtonian magazine.
Partners of the firm include Skip Singleton, Debbie Singleton and Jason Skipworth. DC Living's Property Manager is Ed Lichorat; and Lichorat, Bill Reuther, Sarah Aschenbach, and James Rosebush are Associates who bring years of expertise to round out the dynamic team.
