The Scoop on DC Living


Time for a Refresh

You may have noticed earlier this year that McEnearney Associates began incorporating a splash of lime to its logo. You will also notice that I've revamped "My 2 Cents' Worth" ...henceforth referred to as #UrbanCastleDC


The commitment of this newsletter - and of the real estate services I provide - will continue to strive to equip you with insights, news and trends in real estate.

I invite you to check out the hashtag (#urbancastledc) on Facebook for articles and comments, and I invite you to add your own to the list!

If information is power, I'd like to make you the most powerful consumer on the real estate market.
