I’m happy to introduce another new sponsor for Petworth News, Kevin Wood.
Kevin approached me about sponsoring the blog a couple of months ago out of an interest in supporting local initiatives like Petworth News, much as he was one of the first sponsors for Popville.com when Dan Silverman first started out years ago.
As an experienced real estate agent, Kevin has been working in Petworth for many years. Originally from Maryland’s Eastern Shore and received a Bachelor’s Degree from Hampden-Sydney College (in Virginia) in French/Political Science and a Master’s Degree in French Literature from the Catholic University of America. He bought his first condo in Columbia Heights in 1999, and a row house there in 2001 (but I won’t hold that against him). He can be seen walking his two dogs, Walter the dachshund and Seamus the hound, around the area.
Kevin is experienced working with all types of buyers in all price ranges and areas, and has been told that his patience, enthusiasm and ability to clearly explain the details of buying a property have been particularly welcomed by first-time buyers. “My goal is to make the buying and selling of a home a happy experience for all involved,” Kevin said.
Kevin is a member of the Greater Capitol Area Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. Known for his extensive local real estate knowledge, Kevin has been quoted in the Washingtonian magazine, Urban Turf and The Washington Post. Kevin also produces the monthly real estate sales numbers for Popville.
Plus, Kevin speaks fluent French and German, and is proficient in Spanish and Irish (gaeilge), so he's got you covered if English isn't your primary language.
Why are so many realtors sponsoring Petworth News? Because people know that Petworth is an awesome neighborhood to live, whether you’re renting or buying.
