About Us

Jim Shirey is licensed in the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland.
A Northern Virginia resident since 1971, Jim currently lives in North Arlington. He works with both buyers and sellers. His skill in presentation and marketing comes from years of interior design/decorating experience. He draws upon quality craftsmen and trades people to effect maximum results. Assisting purchasers in finding that appropriate property in a limited time with relative ease is a natural for Jim. His knowledge of neighborhoods, pricing and contract negotiations ensures that the transaction will be well-managed, and as hassle-free as possible.

Jim is a member of the National Association of Realtors, (NAR), Greater Capitol Area Association of Realtors, (GCAAR) and Northern Virginia Association of Realtors, (NVAR).
Professional Designations:

  • NVAR Top Producers
  • GCAAR Top Producers

Other interests...
South East DC urban, suburban partnership in Anacostia, Washington, DC providing community leadership and mentorship to children, teens and young adults.


Ann Emery has been a licensed Realtor since 1985. She will tell you that her “chief aim is be a strong advocate for my clients, and to provide wise counsel. We (husband Jim Shirey and I) have gained wisdom from many years of experience, knowledge, and perseverance through every type of real estate market. I believe that integrity, candor, creativity, and even humor are required elements of every successful transaction.”

Ann will do much more than advertising and marketing a property for sale; and much more than finding a house with the requested criteria of bedrooms, baths, and other property specifications. As she puts it, “This wonderful business is about our clients’ lives and their futures. Both Jim and I honor our commitments to serve others through this vocation, and we accomplish those commitments with friendship and with gratitude.”
