MEET OUR REAL ESTATE CURATORS
About Tracey Williams Barnett— MBA |Investor |Global Real Estate Curator
As a licensed second-generation Realtor and entrepreneur, Tracey brings 17 years of negotiating, marketing, and real estate prowess to buyers, sellers and investors across Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. Her earlier experiences taught her—life is not a straight line.
She left her native New York to study advertising at Howard University and eventually turned an MBA in Marketing from The George Washington University into her own consultancy business, serving as a strategist for Fortune 500 companies in the financial services and technology industries. Her career would soon lead her to Fannie Mae, where she would spearhead the development and launch of HOMEⓇ, an award-winning mobile app designed to educate first-time homebuyers about the buying process.
And yet she never let her corporate career get in the way of her true passion, real estate. Because when you do what you love, ‘work’ is the last thing you would call it.
While most agents might buy one house their entire lives, Tracey has already purchased, flipped, rehabbed, managed and/or sold over nine ‘personal’ properties—condos, single-family and mixed-use properties—from Columbia Heights and Park View, to Baltimore and New York. Leveraging this investor experience with her MBA in Marketing and her corporate expertise in Finance and Technology, Tracey serves as a Trusted Advisor and Strategic Partner to her clients
“I work extremely hard for my clients,” she says, leaning on traditional values and work ethics, while leveraging today’s real estate innovations and tactics—to guide prospective buyers and investors through some of the most consequential decisions of their lives. “Most clients would describe me as approachable, detailed-oriented, responsive and trustworthy.”
The best thing is— she gets to do what she loves most—every single day. Tracey serves as a local expert, community resource and volunteer in Adams Morgan, where she lives with her husband.

Tony Robbins once said, “The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.”
“As a Dentist, I have a natural desire to help impact the lives of others,” she says, and through her home-buying experiences in DC, her commitment to share and guide others through the home buying and selling process, was born.
Alicia’s Doctorate in Dental Surgery has allowed her to develop a disciplined, client-centric approach to real estate.

About Jarod K. Stokes— Realtor |Global Real Estate Curator
Bringing more than 10 years of extensive luxury sales management experience, Jarod offers a first-class level of service. Known by clients and colleagues alike for his integrity, passion, tenacity, and fairness, he has established a reputation as an astute and knowledgeable professional in the sales industry.
Native to the Washington DC Metropolitan Area, Jarod is well-connected to his community and always knew he wanted to pursue a career that would allow him to educate and inform people on the importance of generating wealth through homeownership. Jarod received his BS in Kinesiology from Towson University, where he started his journey of helping people reach their physical and personal goals. As a track and field athlete himself, he understands that discipline and dedication are necessary components of delivering effective results.
“Life’s journey isn’t one size fits all and everything happens for a reason,” says Jarod. He applies that philosophy to every position he finds himself in. “Regardless of where life may propel you, I consider it my mission to help my clients get to where they want to go.”
Buying and selling multiple properties of his own, Jarod discovered early on the value of homeownership when he purchased his first home with his wife and two children before the age of 25. Since then, he has successfully purchased 4 and sold 3 personal properties and doesn’t plan on slowing down on his investments any time soon. Leveraging his experience as a long-time homeowner, Jarod’s understanding of the ‘process’ directly translates to helping his clients attain their homeownership goals.
Jarod’s sales experience coupled with the intuitive desire to demonstrate the highest level of commitment will undoubtedly serve as the compass for maximizing his clients’ experience. He currently resides in Montgomery County with his wife, two children, and his dog named Charlie.
