Tony Shore has been practicing real estate law in Maryland and the District of Columbia for over 30 years. After years of being consulted by title attorneys, real estate brokers, sales agents and buyers and sellers to try to salvage transactions that were in imminent danger of falling apart, Tony decided that rather than constantly “putting out fires” he would much rather do something to keep the fires from starting in the first place. In 2004 he established a real estate brokerage that specializes in attention to detail, strict adherence to ethical principles and anticipation and avoidance of the common pitfalls that in his extensive experience often derail even the most well intentioned parties. A boutique real estate brokerage, Expert Realty LLC concentrates on quality rather than quantity. Consequently, clients get extensive, specialized attention and never feel like they are just a number. Tony personally drafts or reviews all documents before they are presented to the firm’s clients and takes great pains to make sure that the confusing and esoteric terms contained in today’s required transactional documents are fully understood. He is particularly adept at locating properties before they hit the market and matching buyers and sellers for quick and mutually beneficial private transactions. Tony has earned a reputation as an excellent negotiator and problem solver.
Having grown up on Williams Lane in Chevy Chase Section 5 and graduated from Chevy Chase Elementary, Leland Junior High and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School before attending the University of Maryland and the University of North Carolina (BA ’79) as well as the University of Baltimore School of Law (JD ’85), Tony is intimately familiar with the Chevy Chase and Bethesda real estate markets. He has been married to Lori Mulligan Shore, also a B-CC graduate (as are their 4 children) for thirty years, and they have lived in the Town of Chevy Chase since 1989.
Tony has served for many years on the Public Policy Committee of the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors and is a member of the National Association of Realtors, Maryland Realtors, the Maryland Bar Association, the Bar Association of Montgomery County and the District of Columbia Bar Association. His public service includes past service as Assistant County Attorney for Montgomery County, as Executive Director of the Montgomery County Revenue Authority, as the Chairman of the Montgomery County Council’s Airpark Liaison Committee, as Vice President of the Tower Shores (Bethany) Beach Association and as a member of the Town of Chevy Chase Long Term Planning Committee; he currently holds the rank of Major in the United States Veteran Reserve Corps. Tony is happy to discuss real estate with potential clients at any time and welcomes any and all real estate inquiries.
