Liz Dandridge McDonald

Virginia & West Virginia Broker \ Owner

“I enjoy working with sellers who want to get top dollar for their property through our strategic marketing and good old-fashioned elbow grease.”

I started my career in real estate as a Property Manager, managing single-family homes and investing in rental houses, but quickly realized that helping people buy and sell their home in a smart, strategic way is my calling. My team began developing a marketing program for buyers coming from the D.C. area and beyond to purchase more for their money in a more rural area of Virginia and West Virginia. Over the years, we found that our expertise in attracting buyers from metro areas was extremely useful to our seller clients, too.

In 2003, when I moved from New York City/Washington D.C. to Charles Town, WV, I was lured by the beauty of the area, the community spirit and welcoming people I encountered, and by the fact that I could afford an actual house rather than a tiny hole in the wall! (Fast forward to the present and I still own that house as a rental and haven’t left this fabulous area!)

Many buyers and sellers in the area are like me. They are moving from a more urban area and demand a negotiation plan, whether buying or selling, and a tactical marketing of their property. I enjoy working with sellers who want to get top dollar for their property through our strategic marketing and good old-fashioned elbow grease.

At Dandridge Realty Group our whole team uses systems and technology to make our clients’ experience as informed and seamless as possible. We have an amazing team of agents with diverse backgrounds and experiences to be able to best match with each buyer or seller.

When I am not focusing on real estate, I serve on several community boards including the board of the Contemporary American Theater Festival, Downtown Charles Town Merchant Association, and the Charles Town Building Commission. I’m also the past president of the board of the Jefferson County Farmland Protection Board, which works to protect productive farmland for future farmers in Jefferson County. I am also a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.

I am most relaxed when I am traveling internationally, volunteering at a local festival, or chilling on my deck with my dog and my Man.

“Liz did a great job helping us understand the sellers market in our area and in recommending things we could do to get our home ready for sale. She was always available to answer our questions and concerns. Our home sold quickly and for full price!” – C. Campbell

Liz was awesome helping us look for houses. She listened to what we were looking for and incredibly responsive to our interests. She was available anytime we needed her and helped at every level.” – John Horrell

“We received a great offer quickly and though the closing process was a bit difficult Liz kept us informed along the way and she fought for us when needed. We also moved out of state prior to the closing and Liz was there to finish up the deal on our behalf. She was honest and her recommendations to us from beginning to end were spot on.” – Shawn and Lisa White

“I went through two agents before I found Liz. She was everything my family could have asked for...and more! I always heard how difficult home buying would be and how stressful it is to go through the process. I'm sure it was difficult, but I wouldn't know. Liz took on this burden on my behalf. I couldn't recommend her enough!” – A. Sarousi

“Liz helped us in our move from Virginia to West Virginia. She was extremely responsive, answered all of our questions, and kept us updated every step of the way. In addition, she never made us feel pressured or rushed. We really felt like she was working WITH us. Not being familiar with our new area, she recommended local businesses to assist with our home buying process. We feel like we've found a friend - not just a realtor!” – L. Baurnett

"Liz Mcdonald helped us buy our home in Charles Town last spring. She was very easy to work with, and made the process as stress free and easy as possible. We were looking to move to the area from Virginia, and having Liz as our realtor really helped. Everyone we had contact with in the office has been very professional and helpful. We recommend them to everyone we know looking to buy in the area." – Veronica Hadzima

"I sold my house in 4 days!! Liz & Stephanie were great. They were very attentive and understanding. I highly recommend Dandridge Realty Group." – Wendy Renteria

"When we moved to Charles Town from out of state, Liz was invaluable in helping us find the right home. Her experience and knowledge helped us to understand the community, the unique features of the historical homes that we were previously unfamiliar with, and the local contract and purchasing processes. Once we selected and made an offer on a house, she ensured that everything proceeded quickly and smoothly. We highly recommend Liz and the staff at Dandridge Realty." – Barbara Hennessy

"My experience with Dandridge Reality Group has been absolutely amazing. Liz, Michelle, Stephanie, and Heather are a great team to work with. They communicate very well and always seem to be one step ahead of anything that comes up. If you are looking to sell or purchase a home this is a company that cares. Thanks for making the sale of my home a great experience!" – Chris Kuehn

"We had a great experience working with Liz to sell our house. Her and her team did an amazing job from the first time we met with her to the pictures, open house, and selling our home. She was always very reliable in communication as well as expectations. I couldn’t imagine going through this experience with anyone else." – Kala Fendall

"Hallelujah! Your patience and determination were great assets to have throughout the listing and sale. If you hadn't been our Realtor, I think we would still be waiting to sell. We are so happy that you were able to get us such a good price on our home. We are now debt-free (including no mortgage), we are set up well to retire in about 3 years. I know that it was a ton of work for you and your staff, but we certainly appreciate the efforts from you, Lars, Candace, Stephanie, and the fellow that kept our flyer box full. We can't thank you enough, Liz and are glad to give you a recommendation anytime. Blessings." – Paige Phifer
