Printable Testimonials
We worked with Alyssa to sell our home in the Hamlet in Chevy Chase and couldn’t have had a better experience. She gave us terrific advice on preparing our home for sale and was spot-on with her listing strategy. We sold our house in three days for over listing price!

We were impressed with Alyssa’s responsiveness, no matter the issue or the time of day (or night). She provided thoughtful, professional counsel throughout the entire process and was a pleasure to work with. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Thanks, Alyssa!

Bill & Liz Smith

We couldn't have asked for a speedier, easier sale of our house. Further, Alyssa took care of all the issues in readying our house for the market—a particularly important consideration for us because we chose to move to our new, out-of-town location before marketing. Moving is a hassle, but with Alyssa's professional assistance, selling the house was hassle-free.

Jim and Susan Wade

You took a complicated situation and made it happen with your persistence, patience and enthusiasm! You gave us great advice which resulted in a rapid sale. We couldn't be more pleased with you and Washington Fine Properties!

Mary Doyle and Scott Nainis

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Alyssa Crilley. We signed with her a couple weeks ago after looking for an agent to represent us for over two years.

I am sure you already know, but I just wanted to say thank you for having such an amazing agent in your organization.

Alyssa has been a true professional. She has taken time to get to know our family and has always treated us with the utmost respect. It has really been a great experience, and because of her we will be a long client of Washington Fine Properties.

Best Regards,

Christine Sanni

Alyssa was a consummate professional, and from the start we felt like we were in good hands. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and helped us list our house at a price with which we were comfortable. She worked doggedly to show our home, she was always available to talk and made us feel as though we were her priority. Our house sold quickly and her attention to detail helped us sail through the closing. We give Alyssa our highest recommendation!

Laura and Kevin Hardy

We feel fortunate to have worked with Alyssa Crilley! What most impressed us about Alyssa was how much she valued us as customers. She listened carefully to our improvement history with the house and translated that effectively into a successful listing. She personally attended every open house and sent timely and helpful feedback that same day. Alyssa has excellent communication skills and was easily accessible via phone, email and text. We would highly recommend Alyssa for anyone wanting to sell their home with an experienced professional realtor with top-notch service in mind. Thank you, Alyssa! You’re the best!

Kim and Mike Marsh

Being a mergers and acquisitions lawyer, I had been involved with many business transactions of one sort or another over the years. With this item as background, when Alyssa began to work with me on my sale, I was impressed with her smart ability, among other things, to provide a range of values on my home which then led to a successful execution within a brief period of time in a turbulent market. That is what happens when you deal with a savvy, experienced and smart adviser in the person of Alyssa.

Richard Steinwurtzel

Alyssa Crilley was always available to meet us and show us around. She was accessible and quick to respond to our questions. Her positive approach to difficult situations was appreciated by us.

Laura and Kevin Hardy

Alyssa is one of the most professional, efficient, patient and hardworking people I know. Her advice and guidance have been a life-saver through the selling of two homes now. The house she found for us suits our family's needs to a t, and we are going to have many wonderful years there.

Sara and Matt Qureshi

Robin and I wanted to let you know how appreciative we were for your help in selling our home. Right from the start you had a positive attitude. But what truly amazed us was the commitment, dedication, and professionalism you exhibited in the weeks that followed to work with the array of contractors and vendors during the pre-sale fine-tuning to the final walk-through inspection. Alyssa, thanks for your skill, experience, and expertise.

Robin and Jeff Rothstein


The service and personal attention we received from Alyssa Crilley were exceptional. Her knowledge of the local market and key contacts in the community helped us in the search for our new home. After patiently going through listings with us, Alyssa made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and, more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one. She brought a high level of professionalism, negotiating ability and knowledge to each transaction from listing to close. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Alyssa Crilley to guide you through the process!

Kristen and Greg McCavera

I wanted to take a moment to thank Alyssa for helping us with our home search. We could not have been happier with our experience with Alyssa and WFP. The results speak for themselves.

As first-time home buyers with almost no preexisting knowledge of the industry (and far too many questions), Alyssa's patience, knowledge, and experience were invaluable to our search. Alyssa's guidance made our search process considerably less stressful, and we always felt as though we were getting the best advice from someone who had our interests as a top priority. Alyssa struck the perfect balance between giving my wife and me the space to make decisions and providing good advice/direction.

Most importantly, Alyssa's experience and reputation in the industry were an incredible asset to us. The selling realtors we encountered clearly respected Alyssa, and her relationships were valuable in helping us gather information about the homes that interested us. Moreover, our purchase involved a competitive bidding situation in a hot Washington, DC, neighborhood and a complicated purchase from a foreign government. Alyssa expertly navigated an unorthodox process with the government and drafted us an A+ offer that got us the home of our dreams on our first try, without overpaying.

In particular, we very much appreciated Alyssa's speedy and professional responses to each and every question we posed to her about all aspects of the process (at all hours of the day/night, 7 days a week). The level of customer service we received from Alyssa is rare in this day and age in any business.
Alyssa did such a good job, I cannot imagine having to move, but if we ever buy/sell again, Alyssa will be our first call.

Michael and Amanda Gleason

Alyssa, words cannot explain how exceptional you truly are. We have worked with realtors and other service providers over the years, and your customer service, real estate instincts and tenacity are unmatched. As you know, we were expecting our first baby when we started looking for a new home, and when our lender threatened to delay closing for a week, you and your office stepped in and worked out all the details to close on time. Your patience, guidance and knowledge helped us purchase our new home in Rock Creek Hills in Kensington, Md. You made everything move smoothly during one of the most exciting and stressful times of our lives.

We are so thankful that you are our realtor!

Alex and Dionne Williams

Selling a home has hopeful expectations: Please, let it be convenient, unobtrusive, free of haggling, quick and conducted by competent, polite realtors. Thanks to Alyssa Crilley and her agency the selling of my home matched my expectations. Thank you.

Sara Ashworth

Always professional and dependable, Alyssa took control over the entire marketing process, from the selection and order of website photographs to the layout and content of brochures and other print advertising, and brought with her a team that included a stager, photographer, and floor plan surveyor, all to create a comprehensive marketing package for my home. She also recommended a flooring contractor and a mover, both of which I used and with which I was completely satisfied.

In my particular case, her efforts also included the fairly complicated coordination of last-minute improvements, staging, photography, website completion, listing, and initial open houses, all within a few days, in order to get my home on the market as soon as possible after I had made the decision to sell. She was also able to leverage other open houses in the area to maximize traffic at open houses for my home.

From the beginning of the process until after closing, Alyssa was extremely responsive and always made me feel like I was her most important listing. She worked tirelessly to show my "by appointment" listing and to otherwise minimize my direct involvement and the impact of the sale process on the rest of my life. She also appreciated and was sensitive to the complexities that my divorce added to the transaction and to other issues related to my downsizing after almost seventeen years in the same home.

When the time came, she was able of manage multiple offers concurrently under unusual market conditions and offered many useful suggestions during contract negotiations and in advance of settlement, allowing me to get the maximum price for my home with the least amount of risk that a prospective buyer would terminate or have the opportunity to renegotiate the sale price.

I recommend Alyssa without reservation.

Dear Alyssa:

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful job you did managing the sale of our house at 8308 Kerry Road, Chevy Chase, MD 20815. Your marketing pieces were beautifully done. The interior pictures of our house truly showed its beauty and the generous room sizes. The brochures you prepared and the stunning color postcards you mailed caused lots of families to come see our house. I am sure you spent hours working on that plan – and it was successful as our house sold very quickly!

Working with you, Alyssa, was a pleasure! You answered our many questions and gave us the best advice in every area. We received so much of your personal attention we almost felt as if we were your only clients!

Thank you for all you did for us. We wish you the very best at Washington Fine properties, LLC. They are lucky to have you on their team.

Sincerely,

Dianne M. Haney

A year after Alyssa hit a home run selling my parents' Bethesda home in a down market, I asked her to help me find a condo in DC in a very tight market. When a loft opened up in the building of my dreams, we went to see it at 11 a.m. and were in contract by the end of the day. Alyssa's ability to close the deal was nothing short of miraculous — the owners were about to sign with another buyer. Alyssa is an absolute pro and I loved working with her. You will, too!

Amanda Barrett

Alyssa represented us as buyers, helping to prioritize our requirements and guiding us to decision-making, ultimately bringing us to a flawless closing just 24 days after contract resolution. Never once did she pressure us on price or bid. With superb client focus, Alyssa brings patience and expertise to getting the right house.

Luna & Dan Levinson

I interviewed a number of agents to sell my parents' home in Bethesda, and I am so glad I chose Alyssa Crilley. The process has been flawless from start to finish. She has referred me to excellent assistance, including a top-notch photographer, stager, mover, and more. I recommend Alyssa without reservation.

Amanda Barrett

Alyssa represented us in the purchase of our home in Bethesda and the sale of our home in Chevy Chase. On both sides of the transaction she was simply terrific. She had great insight into the market, and on the buy side was able to offer helpful suggestions throughout the process of contract negotiation and settlement. On the sell side, she marshaled the necessary marketing resources to move our property quickly under difficult market conditions. Most importantly, as a busy professional with limited time to devote to the process on both sides of the transaction, Alyssa leveraged her skills and experience to handle the transactions efficiently and with minimal involvement.

Rebeccah & Eric Sensenbrenner

Alyssa went "above and beyond" in selling our beautiful home of 27 years - at 112 Hesketh Street in Chevy Chase Village - and was a tremendous help in our new purchase in D.C. Downsizing from a home of 27 years is a daunting task. Alyssa was always there for us. We will always appreciate her dedication to her work and her clients. She is very professional and dependable and we feel lucky to have had her as our friend and realtor.

Kathleen and Michael Hannan

Alyssa Crilley is the complete package. A professional with natural charm, she is considerate, fully aware of the emotions that revolve around the buying and selling of a home. Alyssa's strategy, execution, commitment to us and the sale of our home resulted in a better result than forecast by other top real estate professionals. We are very pleased with the services provided and would not hesitate to recommend Alyssa.
