Linda Wise

Hi, I'm Linda!  I am very happy you have taken your time to visit our webpage and I would ask that
you take a couple of extra minutes to view my information.

I began my real estate career in 1980, when interest rates were in double digits, but I felt that this field would be a great place to showcase my people skills and, at the same time, help consumers buy and sell real estate.  During my first five years I specialized in residential resales and professional property management.  In 1985, I went to work for The Davis Corporation (based in La Plata, MD) where I was appointed Director of Residential Sales and Marketing specializing in new construction in two large communities in Charles County, Hickory Ridge and Mattawoman Woods.  In a four year period I oversaw the sales and settlements of over 150 homes plus I worked with Mr. Davis directly on a commercial office development and land sales.

In 1990 I affiliated with L. K. Farrall Realtors and was tasked with sales and marketing of a 100 unit townhome community located in Waldorf.  We accomplished our goals in 3 1/2 years and then I specialized in working with local builders, assisting in building lot acquisition and working with buyers who wished to build custom homes.  

Currently, I am working with one local builder, Harrison Homes, Inc. and am active in the residential resale market.  In addition to working full time as a Realtor, I am the instructor for the Southern Maryland Association of Realtors teaching the pre-licensing course, continuing education classes and chairing the Education Committee.

I am a past President of the Charles County Chamber of Commerce, have worked in many charitable endeavors (American Heart Association, Melwood, charity golf events, Crime Stoppers, just to name a few).

I am a Realtor with RE/MAX 100, married with five grown children, nine grandchildren and three great -grandchildren.  

Thanks for taking your time to read about me. I hope to meet you soon!!

Hi, I’m Judy! It’s so nice to meet you! 

I would like to take a minute to introduce myself and give you a bit of background. It took me years to get to the Real Estate World.  I started working when I was 12 years old in my grandparent’s store.  Once I hit 18, I struck out on my own and worked for SMO, Alexandria Police Department, Best Termite Company and, finally, landed at the Charles County Chamber of Commerce.

I started there in 1985 as the accounting person and left in 1998 after moving up to Executive Director for over six years. I left there to open my own business, a horse and tack shop, for the next ten years.  When I sold the tack shop and the property, I really had no clue what to do next.  

Enter back into the picture Linda Wise, “Come on do real estate with me”. My son-in-law was taking the course so I decided to tag along.  I have not looked back since. I love what I do for a living now and wish that I had listened to Linda 25 years ago and jumped into real estate then. 

I am currently a certified short sale specialist with the SFR designation. 

I am married to a truly wonderful man, Dale, we have two grown children, Erin Jo and Matthew, and a beautiful granddaughter Ms. Gwendolyn Naomi.  I have lived in Nanjemoy for most of my life and we currently live along side the Nanjemoy Creek.  We have three horses, one Corgi and four cats. 

Thanks for taking your time to read about me. I hope to meet you soon!!
