I have had the best experience working with Susie Maguire and Lucy Blundon! They helped me find the perfect condo that suits all my needs in the Washington, DC, area. Their expertise in real estate helped me navigate a competitive marketplace and secure a highly sought-after property. Couldn't have asked for better partners to guide me through this process as a first time home owner!
Susie and Lucy,
Itís been about three weeks since we went to settlement on our home in Washington, DC. Both of us were very apprehensive about selling our home of more than 35 years. There seemed to be a large number of decisions we would have to make and a limited amount of time to make them. However, with the guidance and recommendations you provided, we were able to maximize the sale price and minimize the time the house remained on the market. As we have thought about the process, it is clear your market knowledge and the setting of realistic expectations were key to the success of this effort. The attention to detail and the follow up that you and Lucy provided were a key factor in the successful sale of the property. You provided a professional and personal touch that made the effort a success.
Trying to sell a house is always a challenging process and often complicated by emotion on all sides. Having a knowledgeable and rational advisor is crucial. Susie and Lucy possess an exceptional knowledge of the Washington real estate market ó including the Maryland suburbs. Their knowledge of the various neighborhoods, the schools and public amenities, and the intricacies and anomalies of how deals are negotiated in DC, was all invaluable in determining the right price and marketing approach for my family's home in Chevy Chase. From a practical perspective, Susie and Lucy helped me every step of the way &mdash from staging and repairs, to photos, to coordinating showings around my daughter's nap schedule and other family needs. When offers started coming in (early in the process as Susie had predicted &mdash the result of proper pricing and an excellent pre-marketing campaign), Susie was the perfect partner to negotiate and close the deal. Even when faced with a difficult buyer with unusual demands, she maintained her natural grace and diplomacy throughout. Susie is a true gem. You won't get better advice from anyone else, and you wonít find a better, more caring agent to help with your real estate needs.
Working with Susie and Lucy was an absolute pleasure. They went above and beyond to make the process easy.
Their in-depth knowledge of the Chevy Chase area and connections with agents, builders, contractors, and others were critical in securing the exact offer I wanted in virtually no time.
I was particularly impressed with their preparation, research, and the high level of personalized attention that they offer. They help with every step of the process and work to make sure that the strategy is right for your needs and expectations.
I highly recommend Susie and Lucy!
Dear Susie and Lucy:
We cannot thank you enough for shepherding us through the sale of our house in Spring Valley and the multiple moves and problems that arose through my emergency surgery at Duke and requirement that I stay in Durham and then Charlottesville for an indeterminate length of time. There is no doubt in our minds that no other team would have so carefully tended to every detail and then gone way beyond what was required or expected to make certain that our move to Charlottesville took place without a hitch. To have done that with great grace and caring is a gift we will be grateful for always.
Your sage advice about setting a price for our house and staging it appropriately ended with a contract in just a few weeks, and settlement and rent-back dates that met our needs. We appreciate that you worked hard to resolve potential snares in the process.
You went beyond what was required or expected in facilitating the move to Charlottesville with our children, Metropolitan Movers and Done in a Day. We were grateful you didnít change your phone numbers, given the number of calls you received.
Your professionalism sold our house, but it was your cheerful and unending attention to the details of the entire process that won our hearts. Thank you.
