New H Street Brokerage -- Dwell Residential -- Breaks the DC Real Estate Mold
Washington, D.C. - June 21, 2012 – Dwell Residential Brokerage opened its doors today, bringing a fresh, new perspective to the DC, MD, and VA real estate scene. The company’s focus is on helping buyers and sellers harness the power of real estate in order to create a lifestyle they love. The Dwell Philosophy & Manifesto turns the typical real estate purchase upside down and asks its buyers and sellers to approach their real estate decisions in a completely out-of-the-box way.
Dwell Residential is the brainchild of owner Jennifer Myers, an award-winning agent with more than 10 years of real estate experience in the Washington metro area. She wanted to create a completely different type of brokerage that not only caters to clients’ needs and budgets but also to their hopes and dreams.
“I truly believe that real estate has the power to create so much and is the gateway to where you want to be in life -- financially, physically, and mentally,” explains Myers. “We want our clients to see this possibility, live their dream lives, and understand how real estate can make that all happen.”
Dwell Residential’s office is located in the heart of the H Street Corridor, the perfect place to grow this new, young and different business model. It’s a technologically savvy brokerage whose small size enables it to provide a superior buying and selling experience for its clients. Dwell’s agents – a very select, handpicked team – follow Myers’ unique system by working hard to find a home that fits into its clients’ lifestyle but doesn’t involve sacrificing that morning latte.
Myers has been a strong advocate for first-time buyers throughout her entire career. Dwell Residential Brokerage will continue Myers’ vow to never let what happened to her as a young, first-time buyer ever happen to one of her clients. She could have received $50,000 through a first-time homebuyer assistance program but her agent never told her about the program. At Dwell, connecting clients to the latest federal or local programs is a top priority.
The brokerage’s motto, “Dwell in Possibility,” captures the brokerage’s philosophy about the potential of real estate. Dwell strives to ensure its clients really think about what they want out of a home and what type of life they really want to lead. And, the Dwell team is determined to show them every step of the way.
“Whether you want to live in a certain neighborhood, make room for your new baby, or achieve financial stability or independence, real estate can help you realize that dream,” says Myers.
Dwell also does the same for first-time sellers and investors, showing them how to make the right real estate decisions for their particular goals and objectives -- making their goals and dreams a reality.
