Let Us Take The Challenge Out Of Home Buying

Our brokerage practices in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia and our agents are excited to show you what our cities have to offer.

Our client list includes first time homebuyers in search of a luxury condominium, move-up buyers transitioning to a larger single family home and investors looking to capitalize on the metro area’s strong housing market. We also work with non-profit organizations as well as with corporate relocation and referral services.

Whether you are new to the city or a long time resident, we will strive to make sure your next move is pleasurable – not painful. As a boutique company, we have the ability to create a unique buying experience for each client and act as your advocate as we educate and guide you through the critical steps of homeownership. Our agents follow an ethical standard of conduct that ensures professional but personalized service.

The following resources include professional services you may need as part of your home buying checklist; Continental Properties does not receive compensation for referring mortgage lenders, settlement companies or home inspectors. We recommend the following professionals based upon our clients’ excellent experiences with these individuals.
