Topher Cushman, Associate Broker
Associate Broker Topher Cushman brings over 12 years of professional real estate experience to meet your needs in the Washington, DC marketplace. Whether looking to buy or sell a residential or commercial property, space to open your business or an opportunity for investment, Topher can assist you in meeting your real estate goals.
Topher's career in Washington, DC real estate stems from the development climate in the late 1990's while studying Urban Planning at the University of Virginia's Architecture School graduate program. After returning to Washington in 2000, he focused on urban infill development projects in Penn Quarter, Logan Circle and Chevy Chase. His work then drew him closer to home in the NOMA, H Street, Ballpark Riverfront and Hill East submarkets of Capitol Hill where community development opportunities continue to consistently bloom.
Since 2008, Topher has turned his focus from development to helping people, businesses and investors find homes, offices, retail space and investment buildings throughout the City. Although his primary expertise continues to be close to where he lives, on Capitol Hill and among the various submarkets that exist throughout Ward 6.
Topher is an active member of CHAMPS – the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, the Urban Land Institute and the National Building Museum. He lives on Lincoln Park with his wife Deborah and their 2 children.
Dare Johnson Wenzler, Realtor
A 3rd generation Washingtonian and 15+ year Capitol Hill resident, Dare represents buyers and sellers in Washington DC. Prior to starting her real estate career, she spent over 13 years at AOL in business development, marketing and client management.
Dare also co owns a local wine business , First Vine Wine Imports + Sales and paints portraits on commission. She lives with her husband and young daughter halfway between Union Station and Eastern Market.
"Dare was on the case weeks before I moved to Washington, sending listings and, more importantly, listening to what I was looking for and helping to focus the search. This was all the more important because I didn't know Washington at all and wanted to buy within a month of arriving. As a first-time buyer I wasn't sure whether I could even make a purchase happen, but she was able to clear up the confusion of diving in with guidance about both an unfamiliar process and a new city. Better yet, she negotiated a great deal. Because of her, we were able to make an offer in a couple weeks on what must have been the third or fourth place we saw on the search. I'd recommend her to any prospective homeowners, though especially to first time buyers and those who are new to the District" – Jeff Kearns
"Dare was always hands-on with keeping negotiatons moving forward and in driving the deal. She's one of those people that you feel like are behind you with your endeavours, and who you look forward to developing working relationships with, over the years. I'd highly recommend Dare." -Dave Schappell
"Dare has people skills in spades. She has an intuitive feel that can't be taught when it comes managing groups of people and also dealing with customers of all kinds" -Dan Goodman
