The Best Address® Group with RLAH Real Estate has a team of licensed real estate agents with decades of experience providing our clients the highest level of representation and service. The Best Address® Group started as an independent real estate brokerage firm (2004-2016). Specializing in luxury homes and having a deep knowledge of Washington’s “Best Addresses,” historic and architecturally significant homes in the nation’s capital, the Group found an ideal fit when joining RLAH Real Estate, LLC.
The Best Address® Group is led by Joseph Himali, a DC native deeply invested in the area with a real estate career that has spanned more than two decades. During that time he not only founded his own real estate brokerage but also created (and served as president of) the non-profit Independent Real Estate Brokers Alliance (IREBA). He has served on the board of directors of the largest MLS in the world (Bright MLS, previously known as Metropolitan Regional Information System, Inc.).
He has the distinct honor of having been elected by his peers to serve as President of the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors® (GCAAR) and served for seven years as a member of the board of directors of the District of Columbia Association of Realtors® (DCAR®).
He also has served on the board of the Capital Area Realtor Federal Credit Union, and in 2014, he received the “Master Networker” award from Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate. Joseph’s real estate career was propelled to success in 1999, when he won the “Rookie of the Year” award for having sold more properties than any other first year licensee in Washington, DC and Montgomery County that year.
