Tim Barley


Tim believes in the power of place — from land and buildings to blocks and alleys. It’s the tradition in which he was raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where his family has been ever since the Funk deed was issued by William Penn’s sons, Richard and Thomas. And it’s a passion he first pursued with the purchase and management of 12 apartments. Real estate investment became a side project when he moved to DC in 2003, then eventually a full-time career in residential real estate brokerage in 2010.

Tim has been involved in over 800 real estate transactions in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. His energy, enthusiasm, and love for people make him a guide for buyers and sellers who offers rich vision and deep wisdom.

Tim serves on the board of Sacred Spaces Conservancy. He enjoys raising his three boys with Erin on Capitol Hill.

Erin Barley

Design Direction

Erin hails from the Pacific Northwest, where she was raised in a big family of free-spirited originalists by her artist mother and scientist father. Their influence profoundly shaped the way she approaches homes.

Over the past 15 years, Erin has brought creative vision to life through every detail of the homes she works in — from total remodel projects and landscape design to home staging and rental property management. Erin delights in any thoughtfully curated space, whether it’s a seafood counter, the lobby of the hottest new hotel, or a salvage warehouse.

She fell in love with DC for being a city that’s just big enough and very livable, with access to hiking and mountain biking trails just a quick trip across the river. Some of her favorite things include houses with good bones, radiant heat, nonfiction, vintage kimonos, most outdoor sports, raising boys, and lately, beekeeping.

Ryan Shrum


Ryan grew up in southeast Missouri, the sixth generation on his family’s farm. As a teenager, he gleaned a love for architecture and design from his grandfather who worked as an engineer for over 50 years. That passion only grew through studies in property development and management, design, and remodeling.

Before moving to DC, Ryan helped a series of small companies and nonprofits across the nation realize and achieve their true potential — from California to Mississippi, Chicago to Dallas. Working in such a variety of contexts taught Ryan the importance of finding home wherever you land.

A new job landed Ryan in DC, where he found both his wife, Stacy, and an unexpected love for the city which has become the place for their family to plant their roots. He loves to help others find the treasures held within the DC housing market and connect families with their sense of home.

Tyler Wellington

Director of Design and Listing Operations

Tyler draws inspiration from the elegant craftsmanship and traditional silhouettes of the historic Philadelphia neighborhood where she was raised. Her mother instilled in her, from an early age, the tenets of stewardship and what it means to honor the soul of a home. A lifelong fascination with making combined with a passion for aesthetics propelled Tyler through studio art programs. When her studies brought her to DC, she fell in love with the city’s layered history, vibrant neighborhoods and unique architectural style. 

When she is not on work sites or dreaming up design ideas, you can find her building sculptures and walking around Capitol Hill with her dog Gus.

Margaret Youngblood


Raised on both sides of the Ring of Fire, Margaret‘s international upbringing in Alaska and Indonesia came full circle during her undergraduate years in California when she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts from Thomas Aquinas College in 2018. Since then, she entered into a different ring of fire, working in events and operations at a non-profit located in the heart of Washington, D.C. Throughout her travels and across her work, Margaret has discovered a deep desire and strong giftedness to help others find their place, whether it be in a conversation, a home, or a community. She brings a keen eye for detail and a deep love for design to her mission of bringing people to the place they belong. 

Outside of her delight in all things that knit details and design together, she finds joy in exploring a variety of places and spending time with a wide range of people. You are just as likely to find her nestled in a citadel of books as you are to find her hosting a large and boisterous gathering. Regardless of where you find her, she’ll greet you with a smile and regardless of when you find her, she’ll greet you with a cup of coffee.

She also spent some time in Ireland, Spain, Chile, and the United States working in education.  After moving to the DC metro area in 2004, Ann worked for an international economic think tank which afforded her a great deal of interaction with thinkers and business leaders from around the world, and helped her deepen her understanding of international relations.
