Ted Smith, Ph.D., has been buying and selling, leasing and renting his own properties for 30 years, so he understands well the perspective of anyone on either side of a real estate transaction. Prior to his career in real estate, Ted worked as an educator, trainer and communication consultant to clients in the private and public sectors–starting as a university professor in technical communication at the University of Texas-Austin. This experience prepared him to clearly communicate technical information in understandable language to his clients. Ted’s real estate turf in Washington is mid-city DC, the wide crescent swath extending from Georgetown eastward across Kalorama,  Adams-Morgan, Dupont and Logan Circles, Columbia Heights, U Street Corridor, Shaw, Mt. Vernon, and Bloomingdale,  and stretching south through NoMa, H Street Corridor, Capitol Hill and Navy Yards. He knows this territory well: it’s where he lives, where he works, where he conducts his business. In addition to producing a quarterly report on Mid-City DC Real Estate, Ted also writes a monthly real estate column for the Washington Blade. These are reprinted in the “Blogs & Reports” section of his web site,
