"I thank Washingtonian Magazine for their thoughtful, serious and inclusive approach on how they developed this comprehensive list." With thousands of real estate agents in the Washington DC area, arriving at a list of 101 names was "no simple feat", according to Marisa M. Kashino of Washingtonian Magazine. While a list of top-producing agents is based on sales volume, the list of Best Agents takes many factors into account and is more complicated. Developing the list included surveying 50,000 Washingtonian subscribers and more than 1000 agents about whom they've enjoyed working with — based on criteria such as integrity, market knowledge, communications skills, and closing preparation. The magazine also contacted mortgage brokers, additional agents, and home inspectors. Carpenter-Israel has been in the real estate business for over 25 years as an exclusive buyer brokerage real estate company. Born and raised in Washington, DC he has spent his career helping homebuyers evaluate properties correctly and make good decisions about the home they choose to live in. "At Buyer's Edge," he said. "We have an amazing group of dedicated Realtors with one single focus — helping and protecting the best interests of home buying consumers. My personal success, in large part, is due to the experienced, dedicated and professional team of exclusive buyers' agents here at Buyer's Edge."
