Susan Sarcone, Associate Broker, VA & DC
Susan has been a licensed agent in Virginia since 1988 and in D.C. since 1991. With an M.A. in urban studies from Loyola University of Chicago, Susan entered real estate from a community service background with a strong focus on affordable housing issues. Originally from Iowa, she has lived in Arlington since 1981.
Susan has worked as staff and volunteer for many non-profit organizations. She has served on the Arlington County Citizens Advisory Commission on Housing, the board of the Arlington Housing Corporation, now AHC, Inc., and the Arlington League of Women Voters. Her children attended Arlington public schools, and she co-chaired the Drew Model School Association.
In addition to working with clients, Susan enjoys spending time with her husband and partner, Mitchell Schneider, their children and friends, as well as gardening and activities relating to her love of Italy--reading, cooking, and, as often as possible, traveling.
Mitchell Schneider, Associate Broker, VA & DC
Licensed in Virginia since 1978 and in D.C. since 1988, Mitchell has helped hundreds of buyers and sellers over the years, finding huge satisfaction in doing so. Each year, about half his clients are new and half returning friends.
He believes strongly in the benefits, personal and financial, of owning real estate. "It was never my life's ambition to be an agent," he says. "But when I bought my first house and experienced the advantages myself, it seemed to me that everyone should do this. So I really feel committed to helping clients get comfortable with the whole process."
Milwaukee-born and raised in Boston and San Diego, Mitchell studied literature at the University of California and The Johns Hopkins University. Outside work, he likes to garden, read good books, and relax and travel with his wife and partner, Susan Sarcone, their children, and friends. He enjoys classical vocal music, and has served as a board member of Washington Concert Opera and the Eclipse Chamber Orchestra.
