Haus Schwatz: Cati's DC Real Estate


At The End Of The Week

The year has started strong, and we have a lot to look forward to. It seems like I haven't been as excited about real estate since I first started out more than a decade ago!

Mainly, that has to do with my new business partnership. We're truly feeding off each other. Just take this week; it's been busy and fun for Marcie and me.

For once, we're getting close to the launch of our new shared website,, and we've loved developing and tweaking the concept.

Then, I have once more into development and grassroots neighborhood politics, this time the discussion is about the urban redevelopment of the 100-year old, huge Walter Reed Army Medical Center that closed its doors last suWalter Reed, January 2012mmer. (I took the photos here earlier this week.) You can read all about it here, in my guest blog for the Washington Post.

The kit house of the week, this time a modified 1924 Sears "Americus" that's on the market in DC, will be introduced this weekend. Stay tuned!

Last but not least, we're listing the East Bethesda home of a lovely family. Open Sunday from 1-4 pm. Priced at $699,000. See you there!

Hi Tim, yes, thanks, to you, too! (And actually, I'm really tired as well :-)

Catherine, it seems like a lot depends on the weather. This winter has been a lot milder than the past two, at least so far, so people want to see houses again!

Catarina, the best of luck to you with your new partnership. It sounds like the partnership is off to a good start and there is a pipeline full of business ahead.
