Our Team:

The Reishman Group is passionate about providing an exceptional and unique client experience. We are advocates, negotiators, and experts in the DC real estate market, backed by a team of professionals who ensure that no detail is overlooked.


Lindsay Reishman

Founding Partner at Pareto

Lindsay Reishman has been in real estate since 2004, and throughout his career, he has focused on innovative ways to provide clients an exceptional real estate experience. This led him to start a boutique brokerage in 2010, sell that brokerage in 2014, and help to grow the new company to the No. 1 company in D.C. Most recently, Lindsay launched Pareto to capture the best elements of everything he has learned in the industry.

Lindsay spent his childhood in Sewanee, Tennessee, and graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont before moving to the Washington, D.C., area. For many years, he lived in the Dupont Circle neighborhood — where he is still an active developer — but now lives in Spring Valley with his wife and four children. Lindsay likes to stay active in his free time by jogging, skiing, and spending time outdoors.

Katherine E. Wellborn


Katherine, or Kat as her friends call her, moved to D.C. from the South more than 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with the city’s architecture and rapidly changing neighborhoods. After practicing law for several years, Kat decided to combine her long- standing passion for real estate with her desire for client-centered work and a chance to step out from behind the computer. Kat understands how daunting the buying and selling process can be and she aims to provide her clients with the best guidance to facilitate a smooth, stress-free transaction. Her goal is to help clients feel confident and at ease when making decisions in the complex process of buying and selling.

Kat is originally from Nashville, TN. She has lived in several neighborhoods of D.C. where she has enjoyed a bustling life in the heart of the city. Kat enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, and running, but she spends most of her spare time with her Berger Blanc Suisse, Dolly Rose.

Kat is an original member of The Reishman Group and is recognized by Washingtonian as one of the DMV’s Top 100 Best agents.

Kristine Desmarais


Babe Ruth said, “You just can’t beat the person who never gives up,” and I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I enjoy being a real estate agent. It’s a profession where persistence and hard work pay off with the reward of satisfied, happy clients.

With a recent relocation from New York to the Washington metropolitan area, I am well aware of the stress and anxiety surrounding a move — be it a few miles away or across the country. I’ll help make your real estate transaction as smooth and efficient as possible. Regardless of whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, I will always provide you with research, guidance, and personal attention. I will ensure you can make informed real estate decisions that lead to successful transactions.
