Mimi Carmichael Rohrbach, Real Estate Broker
I have over 22 years experience working with real estate clients that buy and sell homes. I became a real estate broker in 2016 to know more to do more for my clients. I sold a home in Woodbridge, VA $15,000 over list price and a home in McLean, VA for $8,000 over list price because I am a Master Negotiator. I really enjoy the real estate business and helping people.
Buying and selling homes is very personal and important. I truly like helping people, negotiating and ensuring my clients have the best financial outcome on time.
