Real estate sales, marketing, leasing and advisory firm, Urban Pace, has named Clint F. Mann, one of the industry’s leading professionals, as president, underscoring the firm’s efforts to grow the company in the region and beyond. Mann joins Urban Pace after more than 15 years of experience in new homes sales and project management in the Mid-Atlantic region and nationally.
“Clint brings an extraordinary track record in luxury residential real estate sales and marketing. Our Christie’s International Real Estate and Luxury Portfolio International affiliations, the result of our acquisition by Long & Foster last year, fueled his decision to join Urban Pace. We are positioned for huge growth and Clint will be instrumental in managing our expansion both here in DC and outside of the region,” said Urban Pace Founder Lynn Hackney.
Over his 15-year career, Mann has managed the sales and marketing of more than 120 communities in five states and the District of Columbia, encompassing a total sales value in excess of $4 billion. His successes span business development and project management of residential sales, including oversight of the sales process, market research, pricing analysis, product positioning and marketing strategy.
Formerly an executive vice president at McWilliams | Ballard, Mann worked with builders, developers, private equity firms and other well-known organizations on new construction projects in a variety of sizes in the Mid-Atlantic, South Florida and New England.
“With the addition of Urban Pace into our family of real estate companies, we have expanded our service offerings to include development services. Building on our local, national and global platform, Clint and the talented Urban Pace team will offer developers new opportunities to reach and engage buyers and help us grow this vital and exciting part of our business,” said Jeff Detwiler, president and COO of The Long & Foster Companies, parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate.
Mann is a licensed real estate agent in the District of Columbia and Virginia and a member of the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors (GCAAR). He is also vice president and development chair of the Sitar Arts Center Board of Directors, an arts education center serving more than 800 students from low-income households annually.
“Long & Foster’s commitment to Urban Pace’s future with investments in technology, market research, marketing and other company infrastructure, along with its exclusive affiliation with global real estate firm Christie’s, positions us for dramatic growth. I am excited to be part of this dynamic team as we expand our client base here in the Greater Washington region and elsewhere,” Mann said.
