Jolynn Yunker

Operations Manager


Jolynn is likely to be the first person you speak with when you call our office.

Johnson Sattiewhite

Administrative Associate and Projects Coordinator


Johnson teams up with Bradley (below) in the demanding role of  Administrative Associate and Projects Coordinator. Upon graduating from Howard University, Johnson’s career path equipped him with a wealth of knowledge and molded him into the solution-oriented professional he is today.  Johnson’s passion lies in working with people and beautiful buildings.

Everyday on my way to work I can’t help but imagine how many historical figures may have walked the exact same streets as me.”


Bradley Allen

Administrative Associate and Projects Coordinator


On any given day, Bradley (and Johnson) can be found coordinating the myriad details that go into scheduling, permitting, communicating, and finalizing the arrangements that lead to successful client projects. And he does it all with a grin and a certain bow-tie panache! Bradley’s prior experiences range from commercial real estate and development in New York City to the study of Art and Design, and then a focus on Architectural History and Preservation. Like the rest of the Renaissance team, Bradley loves and respects old homes and buildings and the character that they lend a neighborhood.

We are making a positive difference for our clients as well as in the architectural landscape. That is a great feeling!

Jason “JJ” Jones

Production/Field Manager


Jason Jones, endearingly known as ‘JJ’, is the Production/Field Manager at Renaissance. That means he is the person most likely to show up in person to do an expert site inspection of your property. Originally from San Francisco, JJ’s previous work experience as a Building Materials Manager brought him to our door in Washington, DC and we are all happy about that. Says JJ about his work,  

It is an adventure, not a job”.
