The Babbington Team co tractors a other ser ice ro i ers com ter may ha e the very same information, but as a real life agent we can truly cater to your individual needs.

B

uying and selling real estate is fascinating, but it is also a complicated business. Most people only move a half a dozen times over a lifetime, with many years and real estate cycles in between. Over those intervening years, laws change, taxes change, construction codes change.

While technology has enhanced the information that home buyers and sellers can access, determining what data truly a ects yo r real estate ecisio s is har er tha e er ll facts are not of equal importance and news stories about inventory dropping or prices rising can be misleading. “Reported statistics don’t always relate to the micro market. That’s why we say all real estate is local,” says Margaret Babbington. “Realtors® have the most up-to-date knowledge about neighborhoods and com ara le sales e o e actly hat the local mar et conditions are. It’s our business to know.“

e ts are trai e i e otiati s ills a ill res ect yo r co fi e tiality ar aret remi s s e are remo e from the emotions of the transaction – we can keep you focused on what’s important to you.“ Plus, there’s a huge amount of paperwork involved, dozens of forms, reports, disclosures and other documents. Technology can provide documents for you – an agent (a real live person) can explain them all, and help you make sense of it. When The Babbington Team joined Compass, it was an easy decision – we are always looking for the most innovative ways to excel in our service to the public. Compass is the real estate brokerage that ro i es their a e ts ith the est tech olo y so yo ca fi the best home. “Even as technology adds innovation to the home buying and selling process, it cannot replace the insight, honest advice, care and advocacy that a great agent will provide.” That’s the mission of the Babbington Team!

ealtor has the e catio a e erie ce to hel their clie ts – buyers and sellers – successfully navigate a transaction, often saving them time, money and aggravation. Your Realtor® is a professional, a trusted guide that knows the business and is working on your behalf. We are also networking phenoms. We know the buzz of a ei h orhoo he a e listi is comi or o mar et listings through other agents or vendors we talk to – lenders,

Q&Awith Marco Stilli

with The Stilli Team

What would you like homeowners to know about you as an individual?

I really care about assisting home buyers to do whatever it takes to find a great property. I like to find them a home that satisfies most of their needs and at the same time is a solid investment even if it is in need of some upgrading and remodeling works. My passion is to combine both real estate and construction.

Personal Passion

US NATIONAL PARKS

Where is your favorite place to escape in the District?

My favorite place would have to be the National Mall. Some other great sights and must-sees would have to be FDR Memorial and the Sculpture Garden.

What is your favorite restaurant around DC?

I love Masseria. I am Italian so it is hard to find a restaurant more authentic than Masseria. I also love to find new steak houses to check out around the city.

Favorite Restaurant in DC

MASSERIA

What are your hobbies and/or passions?

I’ve gotten a chance to travel in the USA, and discovering the beauty of the US National Parks was pretty incredible. When I’m traveling abroad I like to visit archaeological sites to discover and learn about different civilization and cultures.

Powers Up With

CLASSICAL MUSIC What TV show are you currently obsessed with?

I do not watch much TV, but I like to watch National Geographic Channel, Different News Cable Channels, and HGTV.

What is your go-to power song? I love classical music!

Do you currently support any community nonprofit projects?

As a former Naval Officer I like to support the Veterans : USO, Wounded Warriors and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

What is your favorite vacation destination?

I do not like to go to the same destination. I like traveling someplace always different. I have bucket lists of locations that I like to cross off as I visit them. My top four on my list are Alaska, Japan, Cambodia and Vietnam.

What is your favorite home design/decor trend?

I love different styles. My personal taste however is more combining different types of stylized trends to create a juxtaposition based on the needs and purpose of the spaces.

Inspired by his time as a Naval Officer, Marco now supports initiatives for US veterans.

What are you looking forward to most in this upcoming year?

I’m doing a remodel in AU Park and I can’t wait to see the finished result.

What do you love most about DC?

My favorite parts about DC are the monuments. This city is made up of history and I love that you can drive one hour out of the city and discover so many different settings.

Historic Homes The Wardman Row Houses

Though DC is known for its abundant museums, another way to learn about our history is through our homes. District properties are made in a number of iconic styles, and while we may know the physical characteristics, it’s helpful to know the history as well, especially when buying or selling. One of the most prolific residential developers in DC’s history, Harry Wardman helped cover our city with many of the iconic row houses that still stand today, often dubbed Wardmans.

Why Wardmans Are Valuable Not only are Wardman-built homes carrying an infamous name tag, but they are also known for ample interior space, sturdy construction and materials, and exceptional design. In real estate, agents often label replicas as Wardman-style to capitalize on this value.

Where They Are Located Columbia Heights ckington

Woodley Park rightwood

loomingdale Fort Stevens Ridge

How To Know if Your Home is a Wardman ecause of the associated value, it’s important to know whether or not your home or listing is an authentic Wardman. While some homes may be easier to identify than others, a good place to start is WardmansWashington.com, where a database of Wardman homes can be found. Other helpful resources are the Washingtoniana Collection at the DC Public ibrary, and History uest DC, which provides an online building permits database. Photo courtesy of WardmansWashington.com
