Leading real estate team brings over 30 years of experience

The Lise Howe Group, a team of leading Realtors, has joined Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate, the nation’s No. 1 privately owned residential real estate company. Led by Lise Howe, the real estate team operates throughout the greater metro area, helping buyers and sellers from Bethesda, Maryland, to Leesburg, Virginia. The Lise Howe Group has more than 30 years of experience and is known throughout the greater Washington area for their commitment to top-notch service, their expert negotiation skills and their extensive knowledge in both the luxury and traditional markets.

“We’re excited to become part of the Long & Foster team and benefit from its tremendous brand value, as well as the numerous marketing and technology programs it has to offer—including Long & Foster’s exclusive relationship with Christie’s International Real Estate,” said Howe. “Not only does Long & Foster have exceptional programs for individuals in the luxury real estate market, but also the company’s top-of-the-line systems and tools will help our group to create an exceptional level of service for our clients.”

Howe is the founder of the Lise Howe Group. She also serves as its exclusive relocation specialist—an area in which she has personal experience, having grown up in an U.S. Army family. As a child, Howe moved 10 times before the age of 10, making her an ever-sympathetic relocation expert. Her family finally settled in Washington when she was in middle school and she has been part of the community ever since—graduating from Holton-Arms in Bethesda and George Washington University Law School in D.C.

Howe has been a Realtor for nearly 30 years and has used her knowledge and years of experience as an attorney negotiating international agreements to create The Lise Howe Group and to provide intelligent and focused real estate services for the group’s clients. She has been nationally recognized as a leader in cutting-edge technology and marketing in the real estate industry, guaranteeing the group’s buying clients access to every property on the market, including those not listed in the MLS, and offering sellers access to creative marketing techniques designed to bring in buyers locally and from around the world.

Also joining Long & Foster with The Lise Howe Group is David Wagner. A 4th generation Washingtonian, Wagner has unsurpassed knowledge of the many engaging neighborhoods in D.C. and its surrounding areas. He prides himself on providing every client with personalized service and an incomparable ability to find or sell the “dream home,” whether that client is a first-time homebuyer, a move-up client or a luxury buyer/seller. His patience, knowledge of the contract and exceptional negotiating skills are unsurpassed in the market.

In addition to their real estate business, Howe and Wagner are active in the local community and real estate industry. Both professionals volunteer within the community and give back to Heifer International, the Washington and Montgomery County Humane Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other local non-profits. A portion of every transaction goes to charity.

“The Lise Howe Group has built a dominant real estate business in the greater Washington area, and we are honored that they have chosen to join our leading brokerage,” said Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Lise and her team exemplify our corporate values of trust, family and excellence in their real estate business, and like Long & Foster, they’re committed to providing their clients everything they need on their journeys home.”
