Below are answers to your frequently asked questions.


Who is your typical client?

The vast majority of my clients are high-earning individuals and small corporations seeking residential and commercial real estate services and consulting. However when available, I happy to work novice real estate buyers and sellers.

Who would not be a good fit?

Anyone that wants/needs to be convinced that real estate is a viable and necessary investment. Anyone that lacks the resources needed to move forward. Anyone not comfortable with using technology.

Can I work with you if I don’t live in the District of Columbia or Maryland?

Yes, we serve clients from all over the world that are interested in or currently own real estate in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. 

What are the values of your real estate firm?

To provide the best real estate and financial advice and guidance that is truly life-changing for our clients.

Why work with a Real Estate Broker + REALTOR®?

It’s simple: Both licensed real estate brokers and Realtors® are held to a higher standard than any other licensed real estate agent.

Why work with a Black Owned Company?

Here are 3 reasons why you should support Black-Owned Businesses:

  • Celebrates Black Culture and Serves the Community – Many Black entrepreneurs start businesses inspired by the richness of African American culture itself and many Black-owned businesses are created to bring access to services specific to the community’s needs. 
  • Closes the Racial Wealth Gap – We can trace the origins of today’s racial wealth gap to Jim Crow-era practices like redlining that segregated African Americans from homeowner ownership opportunities that ultimately prevented wealth building.
  • Empowers and Strengthens Local Economies – When Black-owned businesses flourish, so do their local economies.

Can’t I simply use resources found on the internet to purchase and sale real estate on my own?

Yes, it’s possible, however it can be very time consuming and it’s difficult to know if you are legally compliant. Errors and omissions can be costly and it is often more efficient and prudent to hire a real estate professional from the beginning.

Keeping in mind the number of years of education and experience, it can be challenging for the average person to Blance that skill level. At the very least, those that choose to go at it independently should consult with a real estate expert to develop a customized real estate investment strategy that she/her can implement solo.

How do you approach working with clients?

We all have different financial goals. No two real estate strategies are completely the same, nor should they be. We will start by learning as much as we can about your current goals, aspirations, and finances. The goal is to customize a real estate strategy that is most suitable for you.

What are your fees?

Real estate sales for sellers are commission based. There are no commissions paid by real estate buyers. There is a flat fee for real estate consulting.

Do you have minimum income or investment requirements?

Absolutely not. We provide quality real estate services regardless of how much you have to invest or your income. ASH MCGINTY aims to remove barriers to real estate advisory for minorities, disenfranchised, and young professionals.
