We are a boutique real estate brokerage serving select neighborhoods in Northern Virginia.
Our core values guide every aspect of our business.
They say 'choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.' For us, that saying rings very true. We love real estate. We are passionate about helping people, passionate about the details of each transaction, and passionate about maximizing the potential of properties we work with.
Our motto, Non Ministrari Sed Ministrare, translates to 'Not to be served, but to serve.' Embedded deep in our culture is the notion of service. We serve our clients, our colleagues, and our community. We serve to the best of our ability, with every opportunity we get.
To borrow a famous brand's motto; 'Only the best is good enough'. We believe that. That's what we expect from others and that's what we strive to deliver. If there is such a thing as perfection, we strive to come closer to it, little by little, day by day.
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest. - Mark Twain
A different approach
What does “being the best” mean for a real estate company today? If we were to shed all existing perceptions and start from scratch with the consumer in mind, how would we define “best”?
That’s the question we wanted to answer by launching Slones Real Estate. We spent 15 years in real estate, working with clients, analyzing their needs, observing other real estate companies and agents, and analyzing and dissecting every step of a transaction, be it marketing a home or helping someone buy a home.
With all that knowledge and experience, we proceeded to segment the real estate transaction into 3 parts; Pre-contract, Contract, and Post-contract. Then, we examined the skills needed to successfully navigate each of these segments, and we identified how “best” is defined for each of the skills needed.
Finally, we architected a way that would allow us to bring together the best of these skills to support each and every one of our clients.
We believe that our approach serves both our clients and our counselors better.
Our agents have an extensive support mechanism behind them, allowing them to focus on what they do best while having the ability to bring into a transaction more resources, knowledge, and experience than any one agent can.
Our clients get to work with a great counselor who taps into a wealth of resources to bring the best skill needed in each stage of the transaction.
As Theo Theologis, founder of Slones Real Estate, likes to say, think of our counselors as maestros. While no single person can be the best in all instruments, a maestro can bring the best player for each instrument together and masterfully orchestrate the perfect symphony.
