Hi Lisa, So many questions come to mind!  Is Bethesda an inclusive neighborhood, meaning a shopping and services in the same area?  Next do tell!  Does DC have their own Dept of Real  Estate or are they regulated by another state? Do you have 2 licenses or one?

KAREN SANCHEZ  great questions. I actually have 3  licenses - DC Maryland and Virginia and they all renew the same year - every two years.    Bethesda has lots of shopping and restaurants. It is the home to the international headquarters of Marriott and The National Institutes of Health.  The Howard Hughes research facility is here and Fox News and the discovery channel.  The national headquarters of the Cystic fibrosis foundation is here too. We have excellent hospitals and Jose Andres who founded the world kitchen charities lives here.

Wow, I hope you only have to do one round of CE.   I'm licensed in 2 states, CA and TX.   It's so different.  

Bethesda sounds amazing.  I've been to DC several times for NAR and WCR meetings. If I ever get back I'll make sure to check out that area.

I loved your comments back and forth with KAREN SANCHEZ  26 years ago I had both MA & CA licenses, but I realized I did not need the one in MA any more, Endre

It wouldn't have been as easy to work both states 26 years ago.  I do so much on my laptop.  Everything is on line now.
