As a top team at the premier real estate company in the Washington, DC metro area, The Leavitt Team started with the formation of McEnearney Associates, a privately-held, family-managed real estate firm. Betsy Leavitt, one of the firm's first agents, brought in Susan Leavitt as her partner in 2000, and the two became a powerhouse duo for all manner of sales, purchases and rentals in Virginia, DC and Maryland. 

The Leavitt Team is committed to shepherding you through all phases of your real estate transaction.  Our goal, above all, is your satisfaction and referrals. We are the experts who can outline choices and probable outcomes; you choose how it evolves.  We share your goal: optimal results from an enjoyable, smooth experience.

You are part psychiatrist, part dream catcher, part wizard."
