A native Washingtonian, Christopher D. Ritzert began his real estate career in 1985. He is known for his discretion, commitment to clients, and outstanding relationships within the real estate community. Mr. Ritzert has consulted on numerous new home and condominium projects. In 2001, Millennium Partners of New York invited him to join the sales team for its two Residences at the Ritz-Carlton projects in the District. He subsequently became the principal broker. He and Mrs. Weiss have handled some of the most expensive residential transactions in Washington, DC, including the highest price per square foot for condominiums.
Prior to real estate, Mr. Ritzert worked in international consulting and development in a number of Francophone countries in North and West Africa where he developed resiliency, flexibility and a keen sense of adventure. Extensive travel honed Mr. Ritzert’s appreciation for the importance of "home," which, along with a lifelong interest in architecture, ultimately helped inform his choice of a career in residential real estate.
Mr. Ritzert graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina, and studied at the Université d'Aix-Marseille in France.
Known for her results orientation and keen negotiating skills, Christie-Anne Weiss is the consummate professional.

Today, Mrs. Weiss and her business partner, Christopher Ritzert, represent a wide range of properties throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan region, Virginia Hunt Country, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She is respected amongst her colleagues and clients for her flexibility, tireless energy, and high ethical standards.
Mrs. Weiss also devotes significant time to arts and education initiatives that include current board memberships at Teach For America DC Region and a U.S. Director position for Shakespeare's Globe London. She has chaired numerous local galas and auctions.
Mrs. Weiss began her real estate career in 1983 after completing an M.B.A. at Columbia University, an A.B. with honors at Duke University, and a C.E.P. degree at l'Institut d'Etudes Politiques in France. She and her husband of 33 years, Jeff Weiss, have four grown children.
