Lee specializes in representing Buyers and Sellers of premier homes in the Washington metropolitan region. With over $300 million in sales to date and many years of experience, she has represented clients in every field and all price ranges, and they have returned to her time and again when they have decided to purchase or sell another home. She prides herself on superior customer service.
Lee has been consistently ranked in the top 25 in Individual Sales Volume since 2014 for the Washington DC area by Real Trends, as featured in The Wall Street Journal. The Washingtonian magazine named her a “Best Real Estate Agent” in 2017 and she has been named a “Top Producing Agent” by the Washingtonian since the award’s inception, in 2015.
In 2012, Lee joined Washington Fine Properties, after ten years of selling real estate in the DC area. The firm is widely recognized in the Washington region as one of the most successful, locally owned, carriage-trade real estate firms in the United States. It registered a highly successful sales volume of $2.7 billion in 2017.
Regularly selling around $35 million in sales annually, Lee’s record places her among the very top Realtors in the Mid-Atlantic region. Her insistence on professional service has brought her many awards and recognition, but most importantly it has produced a client base of satisfied homeowners who refer her to their friends and colleagues. Her dedication to maintaining these life-long relationships serves to underscore her business philosophy: providing her clients with expert knowledge, savvy guidance, skilled negotiation and personal integrity.
