Welcome to District Partners!

Fellow real estate professionals, are you staying ahead of the curve and maximizing your real estate career?

District Partners is a modern boutique in the constantly evolving Washington DC Metro marketplace. We offer a fun and open work environment, great energy and a profound spirit of progression. We also offer the advantage of a strategic alliance with Compass—the fastest growing real estate brokerage in the country. 

This dynamic partnership utilizes foundational strategies designed to enhance both team and individual productivity. These building blocks include coaching, branding, leads, technology, marketing and culture.

From lifestyle to storytelling, we’re shifting the paradigm.

Let’s drill down deeper:

Business Coaching – In today’s industry, it seems as though the priority is on making recruits pay for real estate advice and coaching. To make matters worse, the advice and practices often seem stale, outdated and by-the-numbers. We’re here to change that with real guidance. It’s our responsibility to feed your mind and lift your sales spirit. From lead generation to marketing and motivation, we’re here to help.

Branding – Trends come and go, but an identity lasts forever. Branding connects us to our clients and the world around us. Our partnership with Compass allows an identity that is both local and global. This is especially essential in the unique Washington, DC Metropolitan landscape with its many urban and suburban communities, as well as buyers who come from near and far.

Leads – Real estate can be the quintessential feast or famine industry. Our team generates qualified buyer and seller leads to boost your business. In the ultra-competitive DC Metro landscape, our lead flow option allows you the opportunity to sustain a consistent production throughout the entire year.

Technology – The business of buying and selling homes has evolved, and so has District Partners. Over the past decade, we have traveled a painful learning curve, exploring the best and friendliest technologies. Teaming with Compass—a brokerage with a full suite of tools for clients and agents alike—has added an integral level.  Whether it is iCloud, online lead generators, social media or propriety end-to-end platforms, we’ll show you what works and what doesn’t.

Marketing – Few real estate sales teams actually implement innovative and sustainable approaches to marketing. District Partners will teach you how to become a fisherman. Be prepared to arm yourself with the most effective marketing practices without breaking your bank account.

Culture – Let’s be real, most real estate offices have a terrible culture. You walk through the front door, sit in your cubicle and stare listlessly at a screen. It’s like entering zombie land. Our boutique is different. There’s no walls, hierarchy or jealously. We have a collaborative and friendly team. That positive energy is present throughout the extended Compass network. We’re all about working hard, having a good life and good relationships.

District Partners Real Estate Offers a Great Culture

Let’s drill down even deeper!

The Washington DC Metropolitan area is rapidly changing, and so is the business of buying and selling homes. Enter District Partners located in Alexandria, Virginia—a fresh and innovative boutique agency for the connected age. We’re all about change, and we’re looking for a few like-minded individuals.

Our agency has been around a while, yet it is also brand-new. Andre Perez founded District Partners Real Estate (DPRE) in January 2017 as the next-generation off-shoot of District One Properties which opened in 2009. He followed that move a year later by rebranding as District Partners. His new boutique is now allied with Compass, a nationwide technology and brokerage company. Perez has been a leading real estate professional in the DC area for over 22 years. With this new inception, his business is extending beyond conventional norms with an interdisciplinary emphasis on digital connections, while using creative thinking and interactive solutions to deliver the best results for our clients.

True to our name, we are seeking new partnerships with motivated sales associates who can take on a founding role in the company. If that sounds ambitious, it is. We want all team members to feel as if they have a vested interest in more than their own singular transactions.

What does all this actually mean? It’s pretty straight-forward. Technological advances and trends have enabled buyers and sellers to become faster and more sophisticated. As a result, those same buyers and sellers now have higher expectations of us as real estate professionals. To best meet and surpass those expectations, we must all work together, using state of the art tools to maximize client service, lead conversion, marketing, and efficiency.

We also have fun here, and take care of each other in an open and light-filled hierarchy-free workspace.

Say goodbye to fax machines and flip-phones and adopt efficient platforms like MAC, iPad, iPhone, Cloud and more. District Partners is located in Del Ray, Alexandria. We cover Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland.  And, we’re pushing the envelope with networking, social media, design and development, and establishing relationships with the global community that surrounds us.

Are you interested in breaking from tradition? Do you think you can sell a centuries-old row house on Instagram or Snapchat? That’s fine with us—we’re all about thinking outside the box.

In order to accomplish our vision, we lean on technology and collaboration. We require agents to work on the Mac operating system and utilize our in-house technology and web platforms. Of course, as mentioned earlier, we also encourage your own outreach through existing social media apps as well as actual human interaction!

Our goal is to bring in new agents who feel they may have plateaued in their career, and take them to a new level as we embrace this new evolutionary step in our company. You’ll get freedom here, lots of great tools and support, and one-on-one coaching from Andre. District Partners was created with the intention of preparing agents for the imminent shift in the in the real estate industry, through the auspices of a boutique agency that can keep up with change.

Yes, we encourage you to push boundaries. But we also want you to grow your business brand in an open, fun and accessible environment.

DPRE is just two blocks from Potomac Yard and few blocks from the Braddock Street Metro Station. We’re also steps from Mount Vernon Avenue and Del Ray’s terrific indie cafes and coffeehouses.

Come sit down with us. Let’s see how we can change the real estate world.
