Interview with Rob Wittman
Tell us about yourself. How did you get into Real Estate?
I started in real estate 16 years ago as an intern in a real estate company. I’ve had almost every job in real estate. I’ve supported agents, I’ve been an agent, and I’ve run real estate brokerages. Originally, I got into real estate because I thought that it would be flexible. Then I realized that it’s consuming. But that’s what makes real estate so exciting and why I’ve done it for so long.
Out of all the real estate companies in the Metro DC area, why did you choose Dutko|Ragen Homes & Investments?
I’ve know Sean and Corey for 10 years, and I’ve always been impressed when I worked with them in the past or met with them socially. They always wanted to do the right thing with their customers, their designs, and the business they created. When I decided to leave my former company. I thought about working with people who are like-minded, who understand the seriousness of what we do day-in and day-out and how it affects people’s lives. I didn’t look elsewhere.
What do you think sets the Dutko|Ragen Team apart from the rest?
In my short time since joining the Team, I’ve been so excited by the market knowledge the Team has and how that expertise translates into savings for our clients. The Team’s streamlined processes for getting top dollar for sellers takes away a lot of the risk of selling a house. Since I’ve been here, I’ve seen the Team make average listings sell for top dollar with minor improvements. That’s a win-win situation for the seller.
What do you enjoy most about working with our Team?
People say it all the time, but it really is a family environment here. We take seriously our client’s concerns and everybody here wants to help our clients solve their problems, whether that’s listing a house, buying a new house, renting a property, or quickly selling an undesired property.
What is the best piece of advice that you can give your clients?
When working with clients, I like to meet with them to discuss what’s causing their move and what problems they solve by moving so that we can expertly get them out of their situation and into a new home. With thousands of transactions in my experience, it’s hard to give one piece of advice. I always try to be adaptable and coach my clients that strategies will change when new information becomes available.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy spending time with my family, my two boys, and my wife. I live in Reston and I am a huge Washington Capitals fan. I play hockey twice a week in Fairfax on a beer league team. My teammates have become my friends and I like to spend time with them. It’s just an awesome community with really fun people!
