As the granddaughter of Louis Rudden, who founded Rudden Real Estate in Washington DC in 1949, I began accumulating industry knowledge at an early age.
I grew up in Washington DC and Maryland and I am a 3rd generation Realtor in this area. A business leader in the technology and IT Services industry, I hold two degrees; one in Architecture Design and the other in Computer Science, specializing in Game Design. For over 15 years, I ran a successful sales and marketing career, designing and delivering technology solutions to many of the Metro DC area's largest businesses.
I was a partner in my husband John's prosperous real estate business, responsible for aspects of his marketing and technology. Hard work and attention to detail are two of the attributes that made John Bragale a top producer. With 20 years of award-winning service, he was ranked in the top 1% of REALTORS® nationwide, and he was a member of the prestigious Master’s Club. A native Washingtonian who spoke several languages, John was licensed in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Sadly, John unexpectedly passed away on April 1, 2014 from melanoma. My goal is to provide the same great experience that my grandfather and John gave to their clients.
Focusing on my clients individual needs, I know how to develop successful relationships and guide sellers and buyers through their real estate process. My top priority is going beyond the expected to deliver an exceptional, full-service experience. I am proactive and will anticipate everything you need to make sure your entire transaction is seamless from start to finish.
As a native Washingtonian, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell Your Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
