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 they were granted their land deed by William Penn. 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.

Katie Davenport

Transaction Manager

Katie is a native and lifelong resident of the Washington, DC area, having grown up in Potomac, Maryland. After completing her undergraduate degree here in DC, her love for the city and surrounding area grew, as did her interest in and enthusiasm for real estate.

Katie brings a wealth of passion and knowledge about the DC real estate market, including several years of working on the residential side of the industry. Katie has a genuine love for helping people through the process of securingtheir perfect home. Buyers and sellers alike consistently recognize her passion, professional integrity,and strongwork ethic.

When not at work, you can usually find Katie walking her adorable Springer Spaniel, Lucy, or at a Capitals game with her husband, Ryan.

Tyler Wellington

Director of Design & Listing Operations

Tyler draws inspiration from the elegant craftsmanship and traditional silhouettes of Chestnut Hill, 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 fine art programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. When her studies brought her to DC, she fell in love with the city’s layered history, vibrant neighborhoods and unique architectural style. Tyler approaches design and project management as an opportunity to solve creative puzzles and to share in a collaborative vision.

When she is not on work sites or dreaming up design ideas, you can find her building sculptures, exploring National Historic Sites, and diving into Agatha Christie novels.
