Real Estate Agent Anne Doyle Dies at 97
Anne Doyle, a longtime resident of Georgetown, passed away Dec. 27, 2013, at the age of 97. Doyle was well known for her short stature and her larger-than-life personality, filled with opinion and straight-forwardness. Doyle lived alone with a succession of little terrier dogs, which she faithfully walked around her eastside neighborhood.
Doyle moved to Washington, D.C., shortly after her husband was killed while reporting during World War II. She became a real estate broker as a way to support herself, becoming one of the most prominent, successful realtors of her time. She was discreet, a wonderful negotiator and a friend to many.
