Two of the most respected names in local real estate — McEnearney Associates and Middleburg Real Estate/Atoka Properties — have combined our exceptional talent and resources into one powerhouse firm. This strategic union marks a significant milestone poised to affirm our long-standing traditions of excellence and transform the future of independent real estate.

“Our firm is built on a foundation of trust, which starts with finding the absolute best agents in the business who have the highest standard of integrity and fiduciary responsibility for our clients,” said President Maureen McEnearney Dunn, who will continue to lead the new firm along with McEnearney Principals Dave Hawkins and David Howell, who are now joined by new Principals Peter Pejacsevich and Scott Buzzelli.

“It was a natural fit,” said McEnearney Dunn, “Middleburg Real Estate/Atoka Properties is a firm focused not on quantity, but quality; aiming not to be the biggest, but The Best, and that’s what we look for when partnering with others: common goals for growth and always doing the right thing for our agents and clients.”

For more than 40 years, McEnearney Associates’ corporate mission has been, foremost, to provide unrivaled support to its agents and clients while strategically expanding its footprint in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. Atoka Properties was formed in 2008 by partners Pejacsevich and Buzzelli, who were drawn to Middleburg for its strong heritage and history. Since its inception, their brokerage has continued to grow into the premiere real estate brokerage in Hunt Country and beyond.

The combined forces of McEnearney Associates and Middleburg Real Estate/Atoka Properties unlocks myriad benefits with an expanded network of talented and exceptional agents, an increased portfolio of listings, a luxury presence, curated marketing, advanced data analytics, and — most importantly — a seamless experience for homebuyers, sellers, property management and real estate professionals.

“We are and will continue to be the industry’s best,” said Pejacsevich on the future of the newly merged company. “We provide hands down the most support for our agents and clients and can do so because we are not tied to a franchise fee or national ownership.”

Adds Buzzelli, “We believe in investing in our team to help agents create a stellar experience for clients, and by combining our strengths we will deliver a new level of service and value to everyone.”

The merger was announced June 20 and will take about six months to complete, expanding the firm’s footprint to 16 offices throughout Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).

ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.

This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
