How did you get started in the real estate industry?
My background is in journalism, and I used to work as a newspaper reporter. As my husband and I were planning to move back to the States after serving two years overseas with the State Dept., a colleague suggested to me that I’d be great in real estate. I looked into what it would take to get a license. I ended up taking the licensure classes and sat for the national, Virginia and D.C. exams when we got back. And that was almost two years ago!
Mortgage rates are below 4 percent for two months in a row, according to D.C. Urban Turf. Freddie Mac reported that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 3.64 percent with an average 0.5 point this week.
