About Liz McDonald
I started my career in real estate as a Property Manager, managing single-family homes and investing in rental houses, but quickly realized that helping people buy and sell their home in a smart, strategic way is my calling. My team began developing a marketing program for buyers coming from the D.C. area and beyond to purchase more for their money in a more rural area of Virginia and West Virginia. Over the years, we found that our expertise in attracting buyers from metro areas was extremely useful to our seller clients, too. In 2003, when I moved from New York City/Washington D.C. to Charles Town, WV, I was lured by the beauty of the area, the community spirit and welcoming people I encountered, and by the fact that I could afford an actual house rather than a tiny hole in the wall! (Fast forward to the present and I still own that house as a rental and haven’t left this fabulous area!) Many buyers and sellers in the area are like me. They are moving from a more urban area and demand a negotiation plan, whether buying or selling, and a tactical marketing of their property. I enjoy working with sellers who want to get top dollar for their property through our strategic marketing and good old-fashioned elbow grease. At Dandridge Realty Group our whole team uses systems and technology to make our clients’ experience as informed and seamless as possible. We have an amazing team of agents with diverse backgrounds and experiences to be able to best match with each buyer or seller. When I am not focusing on real estate, I serve on several community boards including the board of the Contemporary American Theater Festival, Downtown Charles Town Merchant Association, and the Charles Town Building Commission. I’m also the past president of the board of the Jefferson County Farmland Protection Board, which works to protect productive farmland for future farmers in Jefferson County. I am also a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. I am most relaxed when I am traveling internationally, volunteering at a local festival, or chilling on my deck with my dog and my Man.
