Since 2007, Brett’s career in real estate has spanned some of the most diverse market conditions – some of the best of times and some of the most challenging since the Great Depression. In fact, it is the challenge and unknown of each real estate transaction that he enjoys most – finding solutions that help clients achieve the result that best fits their goals.

He is the neighborhood expert choice for DC’s 16th Street Heights, where he has lived since 2009 and serves as Co-Chair for the Community Alliance for Upper Fourteenth Street (CAUFS), and has been instrumental in securing DC Main Street Designation as well as ongoing operation of the neighborhood farmer’s market.

Brett also takes his business where his business takes him: spanning from Ashburn, Virginia to Bowie, Maryland and Frederick, Maryland to Stafford, Virginia.

Having grown up in San Diego, Los Angeles, Tehran and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, he is an alumnus of Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Currently, he lives with his husband, daughter and two collies in 16th Street Heights. Prior to joining McEnearney Associates, he spent a quarter century providing strategic communications counsel to a variety of Fortune 500 companies, elected officials and start-ups.

" Brett was very helpful and friendly throughout the process, and made the home buying experience less stressful than we expected. Brett was very helpful in navigating the final negotiations in the contract, and made several quick adjustments to make sure the sale went through. We would be happy to have him as our agent in the future."

" Rating: 5 Stars out of 5! Brett is great, he walked me through the process of doing the best renovations to get top dollar out of my house, the sales process and keeping me calm and assured through out the whole process to closing. I was moving out of state and his team hooked me up with a great agent in my new city and helped me find a great moving company. I would highly recommend him as a seller or buyers agent. He will not steer you wrong!"
