When I was 12 or 14 years old, I remember coming to Washington on a family trip to visit my uncle. While I do not remember the exact moment…I do remember the feeling I had when I decided that I was in love with our nation's capital. And I never looked back…

The day after I graduated from The Ohio State University, I packed everything I owned into my recently purchased used 1978 Monte Carlo on a late June morning, and made my way to DC to pursue my dream. 

Over the course of the next three decades, I invested in a life of politics, public affairs and public relations…with, perhaps, a subconscious desire to help people…Help them understand what to expect from their congressional representatives…help them understand how a piece of legislation would impact their lives and those of their families, neighbors and communities…help craft messages with meaning, so that complex ideas are clearly understood by the intended audiences.

And so it is in the continuing spirit of helping people that I joined McEnearney Associates, help others realize THEIR dreams…dreams of building a life in a place that I love more than any other place in the world: Yes…Washington, DC…but more than that…a home.

So, friends, I invite you to join me in this next chapter as I team up with an outstanding group of Realtors® at McEnearney Associates, Inc. If you, or someone you know, is interested in achieving the dream of owning a home in the Washington metropolitan area, let me know. I will be glad to help.

" I knew very little about the ins and outs of buying a house when I first approached Michael, but his willingness to walk through the ABC's with me at the start - in knowing what to expect and what I had to consider - made the entire process so much less intimidating. There was never any pressure on me to go with him to see places right away or to make an offer - he was patient enough to work around my busy travel schedule. When I had my first weekend available to look at places, he provided me with several great options - both in terms of style and price range - that I could preview ahead of time online so we could make the most of our time together in-person. Michael is extremely knowledgeable about the DC area and housing market, and I truly feel that I was able to get a beautiful home in an up and coming neighborhood at a great value. I couldn't be happier with the experience. Michael's expertise, taste, warm personality and patience made the entire process incredibly satisfying. If I had to do it all over again, I'd start by picking up the phone and calling Michael Cover."

" Michael listed my Crestwood home, which had been in my family for generations. He worked arduously to prepare it for sale, coordinating repairs and painting, and mulching the front flower beds. He even managed the staging of the home so that it would sell quickly. And it did: I was astonished when an offer came in before the first open house -- at more than 10 percent above the list price! Michael knew the neighborhood and invested the time, attention and energy into getting the highest price possible for a home my family loved for years."

" Even though we were searching in an area outside of his normal region, Michael went above and beyond, doing his 'homework' to uncover the nuances of the neighborhoods we were interested in,find the best contractors to perform pre-purchase inspections, and understand the differences in the real estate laws and common practices of the area. Michael was there every step of the way, ensuring our experience was truly a stress free and pleasant one. We were always kept in the loop from the time of submitting our offer to the final signing at closing. It was obvious that Michael's only goal was to get us into our perfect home."

– Andrew S.

" We met Michael at an open house he hosted, and a couple of months later, we were ready to buy our first home. Michael was with us from day one and helped us narrow down our prospects to find the right condominium for our first purchase. Having lived in Washington for 30 years, Michael was really knowledgeable about the market and patiently walked us through the process so that we both felt confident that we had made the right choice."

" Hey Michael -- Thank you so much for all your help and patience helping me find my first home in DC. I was so lucky to have such a stellar team at my back and I truly appreciate your stepping in and up to help make 52 Quincy a reality. Amy"
