Orange Line Living Team

Dan Lesniak founded the Orange Line Living brand in 2011 to provide clients with unique and highly specialized real estate services. Since then, Dan has represented more buyers and sellers in Arlington’s popular Orange Line Corridor than any other real estate agent.

In January 2013, Dan co-founded the City Smart Living team and it quickly became one of the area’s highest-producing real estate teams with over 60 transactions totaling nearly $40 million in sales in the first 9 months. In September of that year, Dan reorganized the team into the Orange Line Living Team and integrated it with the Keri Shull Team.

In 2015 Dan and Keri Shull formed Optime Realty, where the Orange Line Living and Keri Shull Teams now reside. The team is now the top-producing team in the D.C. metro area.

Dan has hand-selected the area’s best buyer agents, marketing specialists, administrative staff, mortgage lenders, real estate attorneys, contractors, and more. The combination of people, technology and processes has allowed Dan to create specialized seller and buyer systems that offer clients levels of service unparalleled in the real estate industry.

Prior to his career in real estate, Dan earned degrees from the U.S. Naval Academy (BS), University of Maryland (MA) and Georgetown University (MBA) and had successful careers as a Nuclear submarine officer and defense contractor. Dan’s unique combination of experience and education has allowed him to create several programs that identify, mitigate and even transfer risks from his clients throughout the real estate process.
