As a Senior Vice President at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty with career sales in excess of $500 million over 30 years of full-time experience, Corey is considered one of the pillars of the Washington, DC, real estate community.  As a lifelong resident of the area and with an unwavering commitment to his clients, hard work and ethics, Corey knows the nuances and character of nearly every block, and he has the expertise to successfully handle any type of sale or purchase in any type of market condition.

Recognized by the Washington Business Journal as “Top of the List,” Washingtonian magazine as a “Platinum Agent,” Real Estate Executive as “Most Influential Agent” and Real Estate Executive magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential Real Estate Agents in Maryland,” Corey has also achieved numerous company-wide awards.   Because he makes the effort to preview hundreds of houses each year, Corey can provide expert pricing advice to sellers and buyers.  Couple that with his keen acumen for deal making as well as his cutting-edge marketing techniques and wide range of professional resources, and you have a fully-informed, tireless advocate for your best interests.
