about us

The Schuman Team was formed in 2009 when Betsy joined her mother Marsha at Washington Fine Properties. Having called the Capital region home for over 40 years, Marsha and Betsy have an unprecedented knowledge of the Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia Real Estate markets, with vast networks of agent relationships and the business insight to negotiate the best deals for their clients. Understanding that buying or selling a home is a complicated process, they are equipped with solutions to all the moving pieces. For sellers, a broad reach of resources - from moving companies to workmen, stagers to schedulers - making their clients’ selling to-do list easier. And for buyers, those who are from here and those relocating to the area, an invaluable knowledge of the Greater D.C. area. A mother-daughter team, Marsha and Betsy’s strong personal and professional relationship have made them one of the most successful teams in the area, with an incredible track record of happy clients and a referral-based clientele. Working with the Schuman Team assures clients that they will receive top-tier advice, professionalism and insight to ensure a successful and streamlined transaction.

Marsha has lived in the Greater Washington, DC area for more than four decades since relocating to Potomac, Maryland with her family in the early 70s. Since selling her first home over 35 years ago, Marsha has been a consistent top-producer in the Real Estate world.  Always working on behalf of her clients by managing with precision and great care the emotional transition of a house sale or purchase, Marsha’s number-one priority is to simplify the process for her clients. Taking the home sale as a personal event, Marsha guides her buyers through a purchase and her sellers through a sale. Whether guiding a first-time homebuyer or a downsizer, Marsha is passionate about Real Estate and helping her clients make informed decisions. Take a tour with Marsha, and she’ll describe neighborhoods with great energy, enthusiasm and history.
