Greetings, I’ve been licensed salesperson since 2004, and became a broker in 2007. Being a homeowner in Northern Virginia for over 30 years, along with over 25 years of successful sales and marketing experience, allow me to best represent a client's interest in either buying or selling a home (or both!). The unique makeup of our area, from government and military influence, to the fast-paced economy, represents a tremendous opportunity for home ownership and/or investment purposes. Most importantly, I pride myself on working hard for his clients in making the process of home buying and selling as easy and seamless as possible.
Putting clients’ interest first has allowed me to become a Lifetime Top Producer with NVAR. I’ve also recently became designated as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist with NAR.

I'm Dimitri Ford, and I'm a husband and father who loves to learn, teach, collaborate, and help clients find the right house to call home. Before I became a real estate agent, I helped people understand how to use software applications to achieve their best work. Now I guide my clients through each step of buying or selling a house and share information with them so they can make decisions confidently.
I remain laser-focused on a problem until I solve it, no matter how long it takes. I'm self-reliant and trust my instincts when I make a decision. I listen closely to my clients so I can understand what they need and anticipate their needs before they express them. I remain objective in the midst of chaos, so I can help my clients see through their emotions and make practical decisions. Plus, I never phone it in and I work extremely hard until (and after) you sign the closing papers.
In addition to helping clients find the right house to call home, I believe passionately in fine food and wine, baking, fast cars, broadened horizons, and a spirit of adventure.
Having grown up in Fairfax County, Brooke understands the market in Northern Virginia very well. She is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University and holds a BS in Psychology. Prior to becoming a real estate agent, Brooke spent the first part of her professional career in Event Planning and Sales, then later, as a Corporate Trainer. Because of this, Brooke not only learned how to negotiate but also gained insight into how people work. It is because of this insight that Brooke can work patiently with both sellers and buyers to ensure that they have the best home buying experience possible
