Sue Goodhart is a true believer in loving where you live, which is why she has called the Washington, DC area home for the past 35 years. To Sue, real estate isn’t just about liking your house, but about finding a home and community that you’re truly passionate about and being immersed in the neighborhood and culture. That’s how she feels about our great area and why she has loved selling real estate here for over 20 years. 

Sue has been in the real estate industry for 23 years, but her professional experience extends far beyond that. She earned a master’s degree in City Planning from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts from Dickinson College, which both served her well during her 14 years working as a small business owner in Old Town.  With those years of hard work and experience under her belt, she made the switch to real estate in 1992. Sue became a licensed agent in D.C., Virginia, and Maryland. 

A strong believer in giving back to the community that has supported her family for so many years, Sue is active in several local philanthropies. She is President of the Board of Directors of St.Coletta’s of Greater Washington, a member of the Board of Directors of The Campagna Center, a member of the Advisory Board for The Fund For Alexandria’s Child, a member of the Symphony Orchestra League of Alexandria and of the Supporting Friends of The Campagna Center. In 2008, Sue and Marty were named Small Business Philanthropists of the Year by the Alexandria Volunteer Bureau. In 2016, Sue was honored to receive the “Golden Halo Award” from the Junior Friends of the Campagna Center. Also this year, Sue and her daughter and business partner, Allison, were honored by the Alexandria Senior Services Association with a “Generation to Generation” award.

Sue has been McEnearney Associates’ Top Producing agent since 2003. In 2006, the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors honored Sue with a membership in the Top Twenty Residential Sales Agents’ Club, recognizing her achievement in sales volume and number of houses sold. Sue has also achieved lifetime status as Top Producer with Northern Virginia Board of Realtors. Sue’s team, The Goodhart Group, was recognized nationally by the Wall Street Journal as a top team in the United States as well as locally by both the Washingtonian and Northern Virginia magazines. Sue is frequently quoted in both national and local media, such as the Washington Post and Chicago Tribune.

When not working or volunteering, Sue enjoys spending time with her husband, Marty, and daughters, Allison and Amanda. She makes the most of Washington’s vibrant community by proudly cheering on local teams at games, checking out the latest restaurants and shops with friends, and traveling.

" I heartily recommend Sue Goodhart and her team to any perspective home buyer. In a competitive market, the best Realtor gets you not only the best service but also the best property. Through their inexhaustible patience and guidance, I found the perfect property in my price range and through their acumen and experience I was able to purchase it. You will not be disappointed if you work with The Goodhart Group. I consider them friends and will use them whenever I have real estate needs. "

" The Goodhart Group's thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the industry was invaluable in assessing the almost daily fluctuations in the market value of the listings...their assessments were dead on and facilitated efforts to distinguish the right buy at the right time."

– Lou Eliopulous

" I would recommend Sue Goodhart and Amanda Wallingford without hesitation. They helped us as first time homebuyers to understand the home buying process from start to finish. We were never pressured and I always felt comfortable with the details as she walked us through each step. We certainly didn't have the biggest budget but I never felt we were any less important as clients than someone buying a much more expensive home. Amanda found us exactly what we wanted - right price and right neighborhood. She and Sue looked out for our interest throughout the bidding and closing period. You will be in good hands with this team!"

– Kari DeSutter

" The Goodhart Group made a potentially stressful and intimidating process painless and even enjoyable. As first time home buyers, we had an abundance of questions that they answered patiently and thoroughly. Their guidance gave us the confidence to recognize the right house and right offer for us. We couldn't be happier in our new home and will definitely be referring our friends to The Goodhart Group!"

" We were very pleased with Sue's knowledge of the market, her attention to detail and her negotiating instincts... the efforts of the team were well orchestrated and Sue maintained a very direct presence throughout the sales process. Sue's team definitely went the extra mile for us. We would definitely recommend The Goodhart Group."

– Hilde Kraiss
