“We are excited to welcome the Speicher Group to the Real family as we continue to attract top agents and their teams to Real,” said Real President Sharran Srivatsaa. “Peggy Lyn and Chris are two of the most respected people in the residential real estate industry. They have cracked the code on what running a top producing team of the future is about and have proven this by operating in three completely different markets under three different brands. Additionally, some of the most forward-looking and successful companies in our space, including Zillow, BoomTown, Curaytor and Tomo, have looked to them for their advice and expertise as they’ve built and evolved their own businesses.”
The 20-person team, which includes 15 agents, joins from Long & Foster, where it consistently ranked among the top-producing teams firmwide and is the No. 1 Zillow Flex team in their MSA based on lead conversion to close. For the past seven years, Speicher Group has been recognized as a top real estate team by Washingtonian Magazine. The team brings more than 100 years of combined real estate experience and $1 billion in sales. In 2022, Speicher Group of Long & Foster closed more than 200 real estate transactions valued at over $100 million.
Peggy Lyn Speicher has led more than 2,000 successful sales during her 30+-year career and has ranked as a Long & Foster Top 100 from 2016-2022. Chris Speicher made the transition to residential real estate 15 years ago following a successful marketing career at several leading global brands. Together, they formed the Speicher Group in 2011. Focusing on growth strategy, financial management, operational excellence, marketing, transactional management and recruitment, Chris Speicher is a sought-after industry speaker and advisor having served as a founding member of Zillow Group’s Agent Advisory Board.
“We are excited to be joining a company like Real that values the revenue-generating potential of self-sustaining teams like ours and is focused on building a culture and brand based on collaboration,” Chris Speicher said. “Joining a company where we can share in its growth and help to shape the culture is important to us. We are looking forward to being part of a progressive company and supporting Real’s long-term growth.”
In addition to the D.C. metro team, Peggy Lyn and Chris Speicher run two other top-producing brokerage teams – Speicher Group of Coldwell Banker Island Properties in Maui, Hawaii, and Speicher Group of Northrop Realty, Fenwick Island, Delaware.
