Meet Your Agent



I’m an education person and a die-hard shopper who originally came to the Buyer’s Edge as a client. I went from a shoe freak who designs serious games that simulate real-world experiences for students (including homebuilding) to a shoe freak buyer’s agent who educates clients and helps them find their perfect home in the real world. I absolutely love the DC urban environment, design and architecture -- the grand old buildings, the row houses, the mid-century modern, and the contemporary buildings popping up in city center and emerging neighborhoods. Honestly, there is something for everyone and every budget. Whether it’s a pristine unit in an established neighborhood or a space that’s all about potential, I love working with clients to explore the options and win their perfect condo. I’ve spent most of my time living and working in DC and the Metro area, with a hiatus in fabulous Chicago. Before joining the Edge, I ran my own education/training development firm. I’ve worked in issues management and media training, and somewhere along the line I helped manage a presidential inauguration on Capitol Hill. Oh, and then there are the cats…


"Dear Mr. Israel:

These words of thanks are long overdue for the expertise and guidance we received from your agent, Lisa Velenovsky. Thanks to Lisa, we now reside in the house of our dreams, in the area we want and all well within our price range.

Lisa was a pleasure to be with on our many outings to view houses and when we had questions she answered them promptly and provided pertinent follow-up information. She was very patient as we often vacillated on the type of house that would provide all that our growing family needed at a price we could afford.

What distinguishes Lisa from other agents we've worked with in the past, was her guidance during the process of making an offer. We are so glad that we took her recommendations during the highly competitive offer process. With out a doubt, she helped us make the best offer and ensured that our interests were never compromised.

There is no question that we will enthusiastically recommend Lisa and your agency to our family members and friends."
