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.
