"Look for Our Green and White Sign"
YOU have noticed it "downtown" and "uptown" Northwest and South
west, Northeast and Southeast and you have also very probably no
ticed that it does not usually stay in the same place long. This signifies
that the property which it adorns sells quickly or rents quickly, as the case
may be. And why?
The home buying and home renting public has come to recognize this
GREEN and WHITE Sign as a mark of value that has the same significance as the
word "sterling" on silverware.
This GREEN and WHITE Sign says plainer than words, "Here's a good
value you had better seize it quickly ere some other home seeker with an eye to
value sees it first." Manya person who'has seen this GREEN and WHITE Sign
once and hesitated has come back to buy only to be greeted at the door with the
smiling face of a recent purchaser instead of the GREEN and WHITE Sign.
Just now this GREEN and tfHITE Sign is marking a wonderful home value
at "High View" a wonderful home,' community right in the midst of one of the city's
most desirable residence sections, as high above the rest of the city in elevation as its
name indicates. This home sells for $3,300 S200 Cash and the balance in monthly
payments of $26.92. They are in the $5,000 class, as a comparison will conclusively
Other GREEN and WHITE1' Signs adorn some equally as wonderful home
values in fashionable Columbia Heights, (on Columbia Road at Sherman Avenue).
These homes are in the 3,500 to 54,000 class, yet the price is but' $2,750, and the
terms only $150 Cash and $22.50 per month.
A third operation, the "Homes of Sunlight and Ventilation" on Spring Road at
the corner of 14th Street N..W., is graced by this GREEN and WHITE Sign. Here
is a home that is "Everything a Home'Should Be" from cellar to roof. The dimensions
are large, the interior arrangement well-planned, the exterior artistic in the fullest
.sense "of the word, and the entire home abounding in many special features nof. found
in residences selling under the ten thousand dollar figure.
In addition to the three large operations to which we refer above, there are
a number of other operations of equal importance, ranging in price up to ten thousand
dollars, and individual houses all over Washington, at prices that you will readily recog
nize as good investments for the property. which they mark.
To those with homes to sell or with homes to rent, the GREEN and WHITE
Sign is equally as important as it is to home seekers. The renting public come to
us for homes just as we receive the patronage of a large portion of home buyers.
Another branch of the business under this banner of GREEN and WHITE
is the Investment Department. We say without fear of contradiction that this is
the best conducted department of its kind in Washington. Webster's dictionary
tells us that real estate is "an estate in real property." This means that an invest
ment in real estate represents a REAL investment. Naturally in a' city like Wash
ington in which there is an utter absence of panicky conditions, this character of
investment offers unusual inducements in this safest of all investments. In pur
chasing this class of property we exercise great caution, as there is frequently a
tendency on the part of the investor to over-buy, which we always discourage.
With this end in view, we have established a perfect and effectual Appraisal
Board. This board makes a specialty of values in all parts of the District and
computes the income derived from any given property. The service is abso
lutely FREE to our clients.
" Look for Our
Green and White Sign"
The GREEN and WHITE Sign On Business Property
In this department of our business the GREEN and WHITE Sign plays a part equally as important as in
connection with our home selling and renting departments. Those with business buildings for sale or for rent find
the GREEN and WHITE Sign of inestimable value in getting in touch with desirable prospects, while to those
.looking for a business property, the GREEN and WHITE Sign is indicative of value.
