Those hi-tech years also had him overseas fairly often, but eventually brought him to the Washington area. With real estate as a family passion and devotion, eventually it was time to stop fighting the tide and just get in and enjoy work and life together. Claude’s work allows helping people understand how to use real estate as part of their financial portfolio, and it allows him to work with an ever changing clientele. Every day is a new and fun opportunity to craft a solution to whatever needs people are asking for—and that drives Claude. When being a realtor threatens to take over life, Claude retreats to the baseball park, or to chill with his husband and/or his dog, neither of whom care for real estate or the Nationals.
