Northgate Realty

Northgate Realty derives its name from the neighborhoods along DC’s upper 16th Street, where founder Lee Goldstein began his real estate business nearly 25 years ago. These communities of Shepherd Park, Colonial Village & N. Portal Estates are traditionally known as the northern gateway, or the North Gate into the city.

Over the years, the agents of Northgate Realty have become experts on the market throughout the entire DMV, by professionally assisting our buyer and seller clients with their real estate needs in Washington DC, suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia.

The entire Northgate team brings a wealth of experience, creativity, and compassion to each transaction that they work, allowing them to not only guide their clients through the nuts and bolts of buying or selling a home, but also listening and learning from them to adequately address all questions, ensuring the most comfortable & stress-free purchase or sale possible. They understand that expertise in real estate isn’t enough and they continuously strive to ensure that the company’s focus remains on the clients and their needs, rather than the agents themselves.

Northgate Realty is where clients become friends, and friends become clients, and they deeply care for their individual needs, not just for the transaction they have at hand, but for life. They want their clients and friends to feel as though they can drop by their homes for a casual cup of coffee, engage in heartfelt conversations, and seek expert advice on all things real estate, without ever feeling the weight of expectation. Northgate Realty is redefining what it means to feel at home in the world of real estate.


“From our home… to yours” is not just a slogan that we use, but the way in which we run our business and lead our lives. We found each other after previous marriages and kids, and were incredibly lucky to find an amazing home to share together. A place that has become central to our blended family and where so much of our happiness exists. It is this feeling that drives us every day to bring that same level of joy, through real estate, to each of our clients.

Lee Goldstein

Owner | Principal Broker

Having spent more than 23 years in the local Washington DC real estate market, Lee has seen the good, the bad and the bubble. Through this, Lee learned that every market, every client, and every sale requires an extremely specific and customized plan to ensure the greatest level of success, and he makes every decision with this in mind.

Lee built his real estate business around being a local, neighborhood based, and customer service-oriented agent. Market expertise, the highest level of integrity, and unparalleled customer relationships have led him to become one of the most respected agents in the Washington, DC region.

Outside of working with clients and running Northgate Realty, Lee is continually active in the local real estate community. He has served on numerous committees at the Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors, including his appointment as Chairman of the Professional Standards Committee in 2016, and his election by his peers to serve on the Association’s Board of Directors for the 2018-2020 term.

On his days off you will find Lee with Angela, walking their four (yes… 4) amazing dogs, Otto, Lexi, Little Russell & Bruno through one of our local parks, or cheering on his beloved Washington Commanders with his son Jared. Having purchased and renovated their dream home in 2020, an authentic 1962 mid-century modern, Lee & Angela are always looking for new design ideas to keep things current.
