I’m a Maryland native and licensed realtor who combines a head for number crunching and investing with an eye for architecture and renovation. I have worked in investor accounting and acquisitions, and run a computer consulting business. As a realtor, I also draw on my expertise in buying, refurbishing, and renting out investment properties, and am able to advise clients how to do the same.

A house can become a big source of income, and I’m always looking for solid properties and the best possible value for my clients. Some houses have good bones – all you need to do is repaint the cabinets. Others require more work. I can spot the difference. When I walk into a place, I just know what needs to be done – from inexpensive, quick fixes, to big overhauls. It’s a system that’s worked well for me, as I tend to keep tenants for years at a time.

I’ve always loved houses and analyzing different neighborhoods. I grew up around buildings, remodeling projects and beautiful architecture – all of which drew me toward wanting to invest in properties of my own. My dad and my uncles ran the family-owned business Stefanelli Brothers, which dealt in ceramic and imported Italian tile. I’ve lived in Rockville, Carroll County, Capitol Hill, Potomac, Annapolis, and Alexandria. I spend hours on MRIS studying price differences: comparing, analyzing and choosing the best value.

I have a broad knowledge base in business and accounting, stemming from my earlier career at Standard Federal, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. I can walk clients through the whole process, from the beginning of a home search to settlement, and beyond. I know escrow accounts inside and out.

As important as houses are to me, we’re an outdoorsy family. It’s hard to think of another area that would compare in terms of all the recreations that’s so close by. I spend a lot of time walking and fishing at the C&O Canal with my three kids. We go hiking at Sugarloaf Mountain and on the Appalachian Trail. I’m also passionate about the environment, so we pick up trash alongside the Canal, and I have adopted a road in Montgomery County.

At Avery Hess, my clients benefit from a welcoming, full-service company, where you’re part of the family. I look forward to doing business with you.

Click to Learn More About Angie

I started my real estate career in 2006 as a full time agent licensed in Maryland, DC and Virginia. My goal was and is to build a strong, thriving, successful business. My deep commitment to providing my clients with the highest level of service, communication, guidance and care has enabled me to grow my business during a time when many realtors have thrown in the towel. Whether you are a first time buyer or an experienced seller I never lose sight of the fact that home buying and selling is an emotional journey, too, as it is one of the most important financial decision you will make in your lifetime. I think it is fair to say I specialize in guiding you through the home buying process with patience, a steady hand and a desire to help you realize your dream of home ownership.

Why did you choose Avery-Hess and what strengths do you bring to your office?

I found Avery Hess Realtors when the market took a down turn and I saw that the company I had been with for 10 years had nothing to offer me in the way of business growth and Agent support. I saw that Avery-Hess was actually growing during the down time and that the support for their Agents was tremendous, so I switched! I understand what the Agents needs are since I am there working in the field too, in our office we all support and help each other, it is a great atmosphere!

What is a fun fact about yourself?

I used to be a college Radio DeeJay, WVCW at VCU we called it “radio for the deaf.” I did it mostly for the press pass & got to meet a lot of musicians back in the day.
