Dear Jennifer, Micah, and Julia,
Thank you very much for an incredible job in getting the condo sold in less than three months. The total end-to-end control and execution of the sales process was truly impressive (i.e., cleaning, painting, staging, etc.). The entire process was managed very professionally, and we believe that it resulted in a very successful outcome for all parties concerned. The entire experience working with you all as a team was absolutely amazing and we look forward to working with you in future. Thank you all!
Jennifer, Micah, and Julia are a truly dedicated team. They brought all their experience and professional skills to selling our home when the housing market turned much less favorable this past fall. We’re grateful for their assistance in crossing the finish line under challenging circumstances!
Thornett + Corder is a first-rate operation, and my husband, John, and I enthusiastically recommend them. Jenny, Micah, Julia, and the team are highly knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. Likely because their results speak for themselves, they are no-nonsense, refraining from over-marketing and "realtor-speak," and that builds the sort of trust that is important in buying real estate. From the time we first met them by videoconference, they understood us and what we were looking for. That was clear when they quickly found a house that was not yet on the market and told us that we should see it, because it was what we were looking for. They were spot on—and we now own the house. And even still, they are helping us as we move to a new city.
Jenny, Micah, and their team were great to work with during the home-buying process. They showed us a wide variety of options, were patient, and were quick to respond and provide helpful advice whenever we had questions. With a minimal amount of inventory available during the period we were looking, it was particularly helpful that they had access to a lot of unlisted properties. We would recommend them without hesitation to other families looking to buy a house.
Micah and Jennifer are the best in the business. Their knowledge of local markets and neighborhoods is unparalleled and allows them to pounce on opportunities before the rest of the market. Buying a home is both thrilling and terrifying. Micah and Jennifer simplified the process for us and gave us the confidence we needed to find and buy our dream home!
We have used Micah for three different home sales/purchases and have been more impressed each time. He is so friendly, helpful and professional and truly is amazing at what he does! We also worked with Julia to help with the prep and staging of our home sale and was so thankful she was on his team to help make sure we were more than ready. With Micah’s expertise, we were able to sell our home quickly and for more than what we hoped. I trust him completely through the process and wouldn’t use anyone else. I would highly recommend Micah and team!
We recently sold our house with Jenny and Micah, and they exceeded every expectation we had! At every turn they were knowledgeable and professional, giving us great advice and support, but even more than that, they went above and beyond to help us get our house ready for the market and ultimately to sell our house quickly and for a fantastic price. They even made what could have been a very stressful process manageable and even fun at times. I would highly recommend them if you have any real estate needs!
My wife and I worked with Micah Corder and the wonderful team at Washington Fine Properties to find our “forever home” after he was recommended by a close friend. It’s important to note that we had a laundry list of non-negotiables and we are extremely particular, so our home search spanned the course of two years and over 20 houses before we found our new home! There wasn’t a single moment throughout the entire two-year search process where Micah tried to push us or sway us in any direction other than getting us exactly what we wanted! Micah exhibited excellent work habits and consistently demonstrated professional judgment in his role, and he also has incredible attention to detail.
I am a Partner and tax advisor at a global CPA/accounting/advisory firm and live/operate in a business where world-class client service is my highest priority and delivering that daily to our clients is what I pride myself in. I’m only giving you that background because it’s very rare for me to feel like I’m getting the kind of client experience from service providers that I bring forth to my clients every day. However, Micah and his team undoubtedly exceeded those expectations! My wife and I were blown away by the NEXT-LEVEL professionalism, patience, guidance, and first-rate responsiveness that we were blessed to get from Micah and the Washington Fine Properties team!
Generally, I do not feel compelled to take the time to write reviews as such, (especially during the middle of tax season with countless demands on my time; however, after this exceptional experience, WFP has earned a new customer for life, and Micah is unquestionably a trusted advisor in the real estate space! When my firm has new Partners relocating to the DMV, I will absolutely be sending them Micah’s way!
I just sold my home in McLean, and the team of Thornett and Corder were excellent. It was a tough transaction with some difficult and unexpected obstacles along the way, but because of their industry knowledge and expertise, honed over 20 years in the business, the deal closed. They recommended other industry specialists when I needed them, and they too were excellent. Those industry specialists had a high regard for Thornett + Corder, which helped in dealing with the situation. The team was very responsive during the clutch times and went way above and beyond any other realtor team I have used in the past. I especially appreciated their honesty and forthright evaluation of the decisions I faced. I felt I had truthful and practical input, which was crucial as the situation unfolded. I highly recommend!
It has never been more important to have high-quality real estate guidance taking you through the process of selling your home. Jennifer, Micah, and their team provided not just insight and advice but also manpower and resources for us to tap in order to move our home to market-ready condition.
Jennifer and Micah and their entire team did a fantastic job. We got the result we wanted and we got there smoothly with incredible support and expertise from Thornett+ Corder/Washington Fine Properties.
With so many real estate agent choices, we are so thankful to have found Jennifer & Micah. Even in such a great seller’s market, we were reminded how important it is to be led by the right and best team. Jennifer & Micah were consistently professional, hold a sophisticated expertise regarding the local market (particularly Mclean), and were such genuine, good listeners throughout, which we really appreciated. Their experience is top tier yet they were so down to earth and always reachable whenever we had questions/concerns. We know that our house was able to sell so quickly in a weekend at the phenomenal price it did because of Jennifer, Micah and their team. We had such a good experience with T&C, that we chose them for 2 more home purchases thereafter, one of which is a new build with Toll Brothers, where Jennifer’s elegant design eye and extensive experience will be very appreciated.
If you are in search of a realtor, stop looking right now and do yourself and your family a favor by calling Washington Fine Properties. Jennifer Harper Thornett, Micah Corder and their team are simply the best. From the very first conversation to the seamless closing on our new home, they were nothing short of spectacular to work with. They listen, are responsive, patient, thorough, savvy, action-orientated, professional and above all incredibly honest. They really are without equal, and our family would highly recommend them to anyone buying and/or selling a home.
I have purchased and sold a total of 5 homes with the help of Micah and Jennifer over 10 years. You won’t find a more knowledgeable, passionate team of housing experts in the Norther Virginia area. We finally purchased our dream home in August 2019 in a multiple-bid situation. The agent told me point-blank that dealing with someone of Jennifer’s reputation won us the contract, even though others were willing to pay more. It doesn’t get more powerful than that.
Now that we have settled into our new home and closed on the sale of our previous residence, we wanted to take the time to thank you, Micah and Julia for all of your incredible help throughout this process. I could not imagine a more successful outcome: you were able to find us our dream home at a time when there was extremely limited inventory and then get us under contract to sell our prior home in just three days (for above asking price)!
We want to especially thank you, Micah and Julia for your experience, judgment, professionalism, honest advice, organization and friendship throughout the process. You and Micah know this area and the ins-and-outs of real estate transactions and negotiations better than anyone. You took the time to understand exactly what our family needed and identified the perfect home for us. Julia was incredible in keeping us organized and making sure that everything was done on time. The responsiveness of the team was far more than could be expected. Day or night, at least one of you was always able to answer our questions and help us through this process. Finally, when you said you would make it easy on us to sell our current home, you really delivered. You gave us great recommendations on what should be done to prepare the house for sale, took care of everything for us, and the end result was a three-day sale process with six different offers at or above asking!
Although the process is over for now, we will not forget all that you have done for us as we enjoy our new home. And if it ever comes time to move again, you can be sure that we will be calling on you. Thanks again for everything! We will miss working with you, Micah and Julia and hope that we will stay in touch.
Jennifer and her team are top-notch and exceeded expectations. She knows the Arlington, McLean, DC area inside and out as well as every agent out there! We put our trust in Jennifer and her team, and she delivered on both the buying and selling side. Jennifer and her team are responsive, knowledgeable, and decisive. Everything you want in today's real estate market!
We had a very positive experience with Jennifer and the WFP team! From our first phone call, we were extremely impressed with Jennifer’s knowledge of the market and approach to home buying. She was generous with her time and had great insights for us to consider, which ultimately led to us finding the perfect house for our family (within only a few weeks of working with her). She and her team helped us navigate a few tricky issues in the process, and we always felt confident that we were getting good advice and working with a great advocate. Thank you so much, Jennifer; we love our new home!!
Jennifer Thornett and Micah Corder are a fabulous real estate team for anyone looking for a new home in Northern VA. They have an incredible depth of knowledge, will find options that fit your needs and wishes, and they have your back throughout the entire process. The search for a new home is a journey and these guys are the best agents out there to guide you along the way.
Jennifer and Micah were a great team to work with. This was our second transaction with them. They helped us get our house in great shape for sale, worked with our schedule to find an opportune time to list, and patiently walked us through all aspects of the final transaction. Even with COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, we were under contract 4 days after listing!
Working with Jenny and Micah makes what could be a stressful experience a truly pleasurable experience. This is the second time we have used them and we can share that their knowledge, professionalism and advice is beyond valuable. From personally shopping for accent items that helped to enhance our home to sitting with us in our living room while waiting to hear if our house was officially under contract, they go above and beyond to help ensure that they were with us every step of the way.
I can’t say enough good things about Jenny and Micah and their team. I’ve worked with Jenny over the past three years on a number of real estate sales — all with great success. I found her experienced, honest, responsive, and dedicated. She’s a go getter for sure, but most of all she’s just a great human being of impeccable character. I’m lucky to know her and would do business with her without reservation.
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.
I cannot express how wonderful my experience was working with Jennifer, Micah and their entire staff. My home in N. Arlington was sold in 1 day for the full asking price at a time when there were plenty of houses for sale. Additionally, my experience purchasing my new home was equally satisfying. They knew what I was looking for and found it in a matter of days. They know the N. Virginia market better than any other real estate agents I’ve come across during my many years of living in this area. I highly recommend them for both buying and selling a home.
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.
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.
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.
