Lili Sheeline Draws From a Lifetime of Experience Every Day

A defining moment in Lili Sheeline's life came one

evening in Alaska, while floating in her kayak in the

frigid waters of the Prince William Sound. In essence,

she was staring life right in the eye, as she found herself

face to face with, even close enough to touch, a hump-

back whale.  It was the experience of a lifetime, a

memory she cherishes to this day.

Lili feels blessed to have experienced many other

magical moments in her life.  She lives for oppor-

tunities when she can embrace life with exuberant passion.  From traveling alone in Africa as a teen to wrangling horses in Wyoming's Wind River Mountains and observing seals on ice floes in Antarctica, this adventurous businesswoman has explored the globe and handled the unexpected with grace and creativity.  These moments and the many wonderful people she's met along the way have helped to shape Lili's unique perspective on life and business.

Higher Learning

After earning a degree in wildlife biology from the University of Vermont, Lili traveled and worked her way through Europe and Asia, then embarked on a tenure with the World Wildlife Fund in Washington, D.C., focusing on endangered species issues.  Later, at Yale University's School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, she earned her master's degree in environmental studies 
and put it to work for the Smithsonian Institution's Office of Environmental Awareness.  Not content with the status quo, this inquisitive professional took her expertise into the Peace Corps in Chile, where she worked with forest rangers, community groups and youth on environmental awareness.

In real estate, Lili has shown the same level of interest in continually expanding her education, with an 
emphasis in "green" issues.  She is certified by EcoBroker International, and holds the NAR GREEN designation from the National Association of Realtors.  She also holds Council of Residential Specialists (CRS), Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI), and Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designations.  Lili serves on the Green committee of the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors®, and also completed the Maryland Master Naturalist course in Calvert County, MD.

Winding Down

"Action" could have been Lili's middle name in years past, as she's been known to eschew cars in favor of bikes, horses and kayaks. These days, this on-the-go explorer favors quieter leisure pursuits - walks along the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay with her retrievers, Bobby and Jen, and visits with friends.  To truly "refuel", Lili and her husband, Tim, love to connect with family in Maine.

Embracing Challenge

Judging by the many wonderful experiences and events that have peppered Lili's life, it's clear she brings a
passionate approach to everything she does.  It's the same passion and conviction that she brings to her successful real estate career.  Never one to stand by while others move ahead, she takes the proverbial bull by the horns when it comes to her clients' goals.  Known for her listening abilities and creative problem-solving skills, she carefully ascertains what buyers and sellers need and desire in a home purchase or sale,

then formulates effective strategies to meet their objectives.

Appreciating her role as a guide who can offer insight about the real estate process, Lili makes it a priority 
to provide her clients with the information they need to make informed decisions.  She draws daily from a wealth of knowledge and a keen business perspective to help clients reach their goals.  Whatever your real estate needs in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, you can count on an area specialist who will provide you with A Lifetime of Experience.  Give Lili a call today - and get ready to move!
