Abe Weinstein joined Goodman, Realtors® after 12 years of owning and operating Congressional Appraisal Group, LLC. Congressional performs residential real estate appraisals in the suburban MD and Northern Virginia areas for both the refinance and purchase markets. Abe has worked small, local, boutique banks in Montgomery County, as well as with some of the biggest lending institutions in the country.

Before founding Congressional, Abe worked in the telecommunications industry at both WorldCom Inc. and BCE Teleglobe where he negotiated leased fiber agreements with national and international telecom companies.

His attention to detail, negotiation skills and service oriented background immediately make any client feel comfortable and confident that their buying, selling or renting experience will be a positive one.
