Hi Jenny, Micah & Ellen,
Margaret and I wanted to again say THANK YOU for all you've done to get us out of and into another house. You guys are such an unbeatable team and hands down the best out there in realty or any other industry. Your focus on getting the job done completely, advocating for your clients, pushing the boundaries, and being partners and supporters for your clients is unsurpassed.
Dear Jennifer, Micah, and Ellen,
Thank you all for the quick sale of our home in Evans Farm. We were apprehensive about listing at a time when there were already several homes on the market in Evans Farm. However, the advice that you gave us and the support in getting the house ready to put on the market made all the difference in the world!
Your keen knowledge of the market and understanding of exactly what needed to be done to get the house sold quickly and at the price that we were looking for, resulted in the outcome we were looking for. We cannot thank you enough!
We highly recommend the listing agents for our house, Jennifer Harper Thornett and Micah Corder. Micah and Jennifer are an extremely professional team. They were very patient as we weighed options and decided what was best for us. We believe their agent connections and marketing made the difference for us.
It's never easy to move but they have made it so much more enjoyable by being organized, thoughtful and fun.
The service we received from Jennifer and Micah at WFP was fantastic. As parents of a special needs child, it was important that we secured a home that would meet all of our needs. Jennifer and Micah took the time to understand all of our requirements and delivered in a big way. They handled every aspect of our home purchase flawlessly. Their analysis and understanding of the market was comprehensive and spot-on. This was the most enjoyable home purchase experience we ever had. I consider Jennifer and Micah to be part of the family.
Jenny and Micah were fantastic to work with on the sale of our Arlington home and purchase of a new home in McLean. Their combined knowledge of the market and experience were extremely helpful as we considered different neighborhoods and debated whether to build a new house or buy an existing property. On the sell side, their complementing personalities helped in navigating potential buyers and negotiating the transactions. Their support following our move has been an added bonus – their relationships with service providers and referrals have been tremendously helpful as we have settled into our new home. We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with and are grateful for their advice and friendship.
We are officially IN our new home and want to say thank you for all you have done. You were amazing from the word "go." You knew what we wanted (even when we weren't sure); you were whizzes at selling our home; you navigated us seamlessly through the purchase of our home; and, you even found us an awesome rental (NOT in your job description, we know!!). I know it wasn't always easy, but you have mastered the balance of smart negotiation with class, fairness and grace. We honestly could not thank you enough and are so grateful for you and the efforts you made on behalf of our family.
Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
Working with you and your team was a delight and continued to exceed our expectations every step along the way.
We greatly appreciated your help in selling our home in West McLean. You provided us with expert advice on preparing and staging our home for sale, and your knowledge of the local market was spot on. We were unsure of the market and our ability to sell given these turbulent economic times. We had a contract on another piece of property and we needed to sell. You reassured us and provided realistic and straightforward advice regarding pricing and what condition our house needed be in to sell quickly in this market. Such information can make all the difference between "Sold" and "150 days on market." We are grateful we had you and your team on our side.
We also found the professionalism of you and your team to be unsurpassed in the industry. We couldn't be happier with the entire transaction from your first walk-through of our house to the last signature at the closing table. At the end of the day, it all comes down to this—full-price offer within 24 hours of the first open house—you are a rock star!!!
We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is, or will be, in the real estate market in Northern Virginia. When we are ready to sell our next house, we will be calling on the expertise of you and your team to get it sold.
Very truly yours,
Thank you so much for your outstanding work as my realtor on both the sale of my house in Great Falls and the purchase of my new home in McLean! Pertaining to the sale of the house, you gave me realistic counsel about pricing and timing—based on your thorough research and analysis of the market—so that I could make my decisions in an educated manner. You walked me through each step of the process—from advising me on how to stage my home to discussing altering marketing strategies as needed. You and your team make each client feel like a top priority!
With regard to the purchase of my new home, I greatly appreciated the way you genuinely listened to my preferences and took them into consideration and didn't waste my time showing me homes that would not be of interest. I also felt like you were so well informed about the local market that you made me aware of new potential homes immediately.
You and your team provide outstanding support, you are responsive and true to your word. I have had an excellent home sale and purchase experience and would highly recommend you to any of my friends or family.
Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication!
Very sincerely yours,
Jenny and Team,
I just wanted to say thank you again for your help on selling Weaver. You identified an opening in the market, procured an unbelievable offer, went above and beyond with what you had to deal with (renovations, buyer and difficult tenant) and conducted yourselves with the utmost efficiency and professionalism.
I can not thank you enough—you took the bull by the horns and got it done.
I am heading out of town for a few days but just wanted to say thank you. I will always keep you in mind for referrals, and if you ever need a client testimonial do not hesitate to call
Thanks again and congrats,

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with one of your finest real estate brokers, Jennifer Harper-Thornett. We first met Jennifer at an open house in January. Her positive energy helped us decide that she would be the perfect person to assist us in finding a home in Virginia. Based on our first impression of Jennifer, she surpassed our expectations on all levels. She is smart, personable, professional and resourceful. Every telephone call and email was returned promptly. Bottom line—She made us feel special.
Jennifer made our home purchase a delight. We never worried for a minute, knowing she and her assistant, Heather, were in charge of the transaction. What a great team!
Washington Fine Properties is lucky to have someone like Jennifer. She is a true asset representing your company and we wouldn't hesitate to refer her to our friends and family or to use her again in the future.
