The Buck Stops Here: Managing in McLean

The Buck Stops Here!

It's time for a new business card, time to update my profiles on the internet, and time to get ready for the beginning of a new adventure in real estate.


As of this past week, I'm now officially the

Managing Broker/Branch Vice President of our

RE/MAX Allegiance office

in McLean, Virginia

What does this mean for you?

CLIENTS & POTENTIAL CLIENTS:  Nothing changes in terms of our interactions, your purchase or sale transactions, my availability, etc.  I will be continuing to actively sell real estate, helping people in Northern Virginia and D.C. purchase and sell homes.  You'll continue to receive the consistently high level of service to which you've become accustomed.

OTHER NORTHERN VIRGINIA AGENTS:  Have you been thinking about a change?  Considering a move to RE/MAX?  How about RE/MAX Allegiance -- one of the most successful and busiest real estate brokerages in Northern Virginia?  I'd love to talk with you and explain all the benefits of working with the greatest group of agents.

What does this mean for me?



In addition to actively selling, I'll now be managing a great office of over 40 other real estate agents and brokers.  Yes, not only will I be responsible for dealing with any problems that arise in my own transactions, but I'll be dealing with everyone else's problems too. 


Please pass the Alka-Seltzer or Rolaids.


Seriously, I'm looking forward to the opportunity and the challenge.  I'm excited about using my knowledge and experience to help other agents with brokerage questions, educate and motivate agents to build their businesses and come up with innovative ways to market, help recruit agents to a great company and build our brand.  I'm especially excited about teaching what I know and learning from others.



RE/MAX Allegiance -- McLean, VA

Located at 6226 Old Dominion Drive in McLean, VA 22101, the McLean RE/MAX Allegiance office is smack dab in the center of the Chesterbrook Shopping Center across from a two-story Starbucks Coffee shop rumored to be among the busiest Starbucks in the country.

The McLean office currently has about 40 agents (We're looking to grow... give me a call).  The office is fortunate to be situated within one of the priciest zip codes in Virginia and indeed the country.  Learn more about McLean here: Meet McLean, Virginia: The Fourth Most Affluent Community in the U.S.

Congratulations Brian.  That is great news.  I know that you will be such an assest to your agents.

Great location.... You may want to consider putting up a flat screen on the window facing out showing your listings and your agents to add a bit of pizazz and attention.

Brian, comgratulations. I lived on Chain Bridge Rd in McLean, VA from 1973 to 1983.  Loved that community.

Hopefully this means you will make more money so you can finally pay me my bribe that you owe me for voting for you in the VAR blog off...

Has RE/Max seen your videos?  Do they know what they are getting into? 

Seriously though, congratulations, and I actually think you would be good to work for.  Good sense of humor and good at what you do.  So now that I said my bribe on the way?

Congratulations Brian. Best of luck. Your marketing know how and legal background will be a great asset for all your agents.
