about this business

Damon Nicholas, Senior Executive Team Leader

Damon entered the real estate field initially in 1985 as a part-time buyer's agent, in order to share some of his wife Debbie's workload from her growing real estate business. He dedicated himself full-time to real estate in 1990. Damon certainly found his niche in the real estate world, consistently receiving the highest honors from Coldwell Banker and the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors (NVAR). He has been honored as one of the Top Five sales associates in Virginia for Coldwell Banker and most recently Damon Nicholas & The DamonSellsHomes Team ranked 6th in Coldwell Banker’s Mid-Atlantic territory. Damon’s continued success lies in his special ability to thoroughly represent buyers and sellers in all price ranges, whether their need is a $200,000 or a $2,000,000 home.

Damon enjoys spending time with his family and friends, as well as talking to and getting to know new people. For fun, he plays basketball and bridge. Damon can attest to the quality of life, education, and the multitude of opportunities available in Northern Virginia. As a trusted professional with the experience and skill to handle all your real estate needs, Damon’s personal service will produce extraordinary results that will make the difference.

Damon grew up in the Fairfax/Annandale area of Northern Virginia and attended Woodson High School. While playing basketball there, he learned both how to be a team player and how to be energetic yet fair with his competitors. These two skills have carried over well to Damon's real estate career and have formed the foundation of his successful business philosophies. Damon graduated from the University of Virginia, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Economics, and thereafter successfully developed careers in producing and managing computer software projects for private enterprise as well as for the federal government. He has received almost every possible award for his outstanding contributions and achievement in these technical areas and still gets a kick out of tinkering around with technology.

She and her husband Jim have three children, each of whom attended Fairfax County Schools, as well as Barbara and her husband.

Josie Barondess, Senior Team Realtor

Josie serves both her clients and the team as Senior Team Realtor, Accredited Staging Professional and as Marketing Coordinator. Because potential buyers get their first look at a home online, Josie utilizes her incredible skills to assist with staging, then photographs team listed homes, to best enhance each to its full potential. Josie then creates a brochure unique to each listing, highlighting not only the property but the surrounding neighborhood so that potential buyers unfamiliar with the area have this vital initial information to make their best decision. She has also been a member of the Million Dollar Sales Club.

Josie has served the local community as Board President as well as Activities Committee Chairperson for the Sequoia Farms Owners Association Board for many years, and is an active volunteer in her synagogue. Josie and her husband David have two grown daughters who have both graduated from Virginia public universities, living and working in the area. She also enjoys sharing her skills with the newest generation of home buyers and sellers, as many of Josie’s friends and neighbors’ children are entering into the home ownership process.

Josie, who grew up in a military family, calls the East Coast home-base. She graduated from Annandale High School, has a BA in History from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, VA and an MBA from National University in San Diego, CA. Josie says earning both her degrees, focusing on the classics with well-rounded curriculum, enhanced her over-all knowledge base and helped hone her focus on business strategies with regard to running her own business. Josie’s clients also benefit from her varied experience in the Real Estate field. Having started as an Office Administrator and Manager, then moving on to Real Estate Research Analyst for appraisers on both coasts, Josie has also worked as an Administrative Assistant not only for a relocation department, but also to a mortgage loan officer. Through this vast experience, she is uniquely qualified to educate her clients, from first time buyers to the more experienced, in the processes of buying a home.

Steve Fred, Executive Team Realtor

With Steve's background, it should come as no surprise that he is certified as a Military Relocation Specialist. Steve credits his former Air Force boss in Nebraska, who retired and became the Realtor who sold Steve’s first home for him, with the inspiration for his career in real estate. He began selling real estate in 2000 and earned NVAR Multi-Million Dollar Club status in 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012, specializing in the areas of Fairfax County, Fairfax, Annandale, Alexandria and Arlington.

Kris assists each team member in processing real estate sales to successful completion. Her attention to detail behind the scenes, scheduling inspections, coordinating settlements, as well as keeping an eye on the flow of each transaction’s unique events, allows team Realtors to remain fully engaged with each of their clients’ needs.

Kris and her husband, Mike, are the proud parents of five grown children and three grandchildren. They share their household, on the fringes of Prince William and Fauquier Counties, with two dogs and two horses. In addition to spending time with family, friends and frequently visited by numerous deer, the occasional fox, and spying wild turkeys with their newly hatched gang of chicks each spring, Kris is an active volunteer with her church.

Kris is originally from Southern California, and spent 10 years in Germany, before moving to Northern Virginia in 1997. Prior to joining the DamonSellsHomes Team, Kris spent more than 10 years as the Marketing and Move-In Coordinator for a retirement community.
