Being a great broker in Baltimore is also about having a finger on its pulse. Many listings aren’t public knowledge, and broker networking can be the key to getting a client’s foot through the right threshold. The Jeff Washo Team provides a level of sophistication and trustworthiness that their clients depend on.  Jeff’s team is comprised of business partners with over 20 years of combined experience, an assistant/transaction coordinator, marketing director, escrow & title representatives and finance specialists, who cover all aspects of the transaction from identifying a property to successfully negotiating and closing the deal.

If you are selling your home, you can rely on The Jeff Washo Team’s proven strategy to command a top market price for your property. They do this by first understanding the intricacies and uniqueness of your specific property, then advertising your property while networking with other top brokers — providing you with maximum exposure. 

“I’ve found much better results when I treat all listings as if they were my own home,” says Jeff. “My concern is the long-term satisfaction of my clients. My goal is to assist you in making the right investment for you and your family.”

Erik Thorsvik


Erik joined the Jeff Washo Team in 2020 and has been a licensed agent since 2017.

He started as a loan officer in 2008 before beginning a marketing career where he held such titles as Marketing Director, Director of Client Relations as well as being named Chief Marketing Officer for a growing Mid Atlantic company before making his move back to real estate.

Erik has worked with some of the largest real estate teams in the country and as a real estate marketer has helped sell hundreds of homes with his real estate photography, video and 3D tours. “I’ve helped sell homes for $100,000 and I’ve helped sell homes for $3,000,000. I put just as much thought and care into each. Every home has a story and every home has a different path to market it which is why I took the time to really harness the skills of being able to use my Matterport camera, drones, walking video tours, web design and social media advertising. There is so much more that goes into buying and selling homes though and when I was looking to join a real estate team I looked for what I knew would compliment my capabilities. The team’s combined real estate experience on top of my ability to capture a home make for a really great combo.”

Erik also has several years of working as a contractor and is in the process of getting his own MHIC license. 

Erik grew up in Severna Park, attended Towson University, and lived in Annapolis and Columbia before settling down in Baltimore City in 2012. “Moving around to these different areas has allowed me to really get to know other neighborhoods throughout Anne Arundel, Howard, Baltimore county and Baltimore City. I now get to pass along that knowledge to my buyers.” 

He currently resides in Locust Point with his girlfriend, their cat and their 10 month old Bernese Mountain Dog, Blue.
