My name is Ashok R Singh, my friends call me Shoookie, yes there are three letter ‘o’ in my nickname, that’s because the email address I have had since 1994, has three letter ‘o’ in it. Kind of dumb I know but it works. Just don’t pronounce the third ‘o’ pronounce it as if there are two. I am a former Domino’s Pizza Franchisee, I started working for them in college, and ended up staying with them for 18 years, I sold my stores in 2004, and retired at the ripe old age of 35, did a lot of traveling and got bored.
I started doing Real Estate in NYC, and had a blast and made a good living, one day I ventured into New Jersey–Jersey City specifically, and the rest is history. I love my job, everyday is a new challenge, I enjoy meeting some of the whacko’s I call clients and I enjoy when some of them leave and never call me again.
I have moved to Arlington, VA for the last two years now. I have my license here, and working on my Maryland, and DC license. The market here is crazy, it is definitely a seller’s market right now. Every time a listing comes on the market it is gone within days and usually with multiple offers. For a Realtor it’s definitely a dream; I have focused more as a listing agent. Don’t worry I also work with buyers, so give me a call either way.
Please read and share with your friends if you think it will inspire or challenge them. I am living proof that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! This blog originally started as a journal of my weight loss journey–I weighed nearly 400lbs 5 years ago. It has since evolved into my Real Estate blog.
Personally I think it may be more interesting for the reader, who wants to just read about Real Estate? I concentrate on mainly Clarendon and Courthouse, I’m sure there are many agents that do also, but I’d like to think I do it better…but what would you expect me to say…ENJOY!
