Genie made buying our first home a delightful process. My fiance and I had pretty specific "must haves" in mind and were buying in an incredibly tough market but Genie stuck with us, was optimistic, creative and thoughtful. She pushed us when necessary, but never too much. Flexibility, responsiveness, and patience are key qualities in an exceptional agent and Genie has them all... in spades. As a native Washingtonian with years of experience as top realtor in the area, Genie knows the market inside and out. She found us our dream home and we are so fortunate to have  worked with her. We can't recommend Genie enough.

This month my husband and I purchased a home in Towson, MD with Genie as our buyer's agent. This was my first purchase with Genie, preceded by a 2012 sale in Chevy Chase. All together, this was the fourth transaction for our family with Genie! Genie's market analyses are sharp and always targeted to our needs, while her warm and engaged client advocacy keeps us feeling secure and cared for. We are clearly very satisfied clients and would use Genie again without reservation

From as early as I can remember, buying a home of my own was one of my most important goals.  I always dreamt of a place of my own to grow memories, build a family and have friends and family reunite for generations.  Before we were ready to seriously consider any homes, I did some research online and came across the Genie and Ilia team and I immediately knew somehow that they were the right ones to help my husband and I.  On a Saturday morning last April 2022, Genie and Ilia drove down to a coffee shop near our apartment in downtown D.C. and my hunch was validated: Genie and Ilia made a knowledgeable, sharp, insightful, and patient team.  I was so excited to work with them in finding our dream house.  When the time was right (a few months later in late August of 2022), we picked up the phone and contacted Genie and Ilia again.  I was extremely specific and knew what I wanted - and Genie and Ilia worked around my guidance with ease and enthusiasm - they also helped me keep my options open.

Within about 3 months and only having seen 1 or 2 houses in person, we found THE house of our dreams.  When we first saw it, it was clear it needed a lot of work, but Genie and Ilia, like me, were able to see the potential.  I was over the moon excited.  Genie and Ilia just fed off our enthusiasm: they helped us find an architect who was part of the historic board to advise on renovations and additions, they helped us find a structural engineer to advise on structural integrity, and they connected us to an excellent home inspector who walked the property with us multiple times.  While guiding us through every step of the process with patience and positivity, we felt comfortable enough to put in an offer.  There was NOT ONE question Genie and Ilia did not know the answer to.

Then the fun began: Genie superbly negotiated our offer and steered the negotiation process with difficult sellers and even found us a better lender than what my own research yielded.  She also connected us to home-insurance professionals and walked us through our contract making the contract and closing process as smooth as possible... a process which I know can be super stressful.  Genie was available 24/7 for us, answering the littlest question with patience and kindness.  She made it all make sense.

After the contract closed, and just before we moved in, Genie helped us find plumbers, cleaners, repairmen to fix a broken window and even came by to put a insulator on an outdoor hose faucet.  Oh!  And she also even made us extra keys!  My husband and I were incredibly grateful for the level of attention to detail matched by true kindness in this big step.  We could absolutely not be happier in our first house and it's all thanks to Genie and Ilia.

I am convinced you will not find a better team in the DMV region to take care of your real-estate needs.  Genie and Ilia are sharp, hard-working, responsive, talented, patient... and are great listeners.  They combine artistic vision with financial acumen; they pair business savvy with excellent personal skills.  More, they are just the most dedicated and wonderful people to work with and we are so grateful they were the ones who helped make our dreams come true.  We look forward to more business with Genie and Ilia in the near future and an ever-lasting friendship.

THANK YOU Genie and Ilia!!

"Ilia and Genie have been reliable and trusted navigators through the sale of our home.   At first, we were uncertain as to how our house would fare in the current market.  It needed a lot of work, cleanup, and updating.  Overwhelming for first-time sellers.  Ilia and Genie took the lead on identifying these issues and provided excellent referrals to contractors, stagers, and other necessary professionals.  When we hit bumps in the road as our closing date neared, they were immediately responsive, persistent, and supportive in managing our relationships with other parties in the sale. Their research into the current market and strategic pricing helped reap maximum value and reward for our family.  They are experienced, knowledgeable, and well connected in the DC community.  I would not hesitate to refer them to any friend in the area.  Thank you both so much!  Truly grateful for your work!"

"I chose to work with Genie because I simply wanted an agent I could trust to look out for my best interests. I got that and much more. I greatly appreciated the reliability and attention to detail she demonstrated which provided me reassurance throughout the process. More importantly her patience and willingness to help me develop an understanding of what I really needed helped me find a place that I am absolutely thrilled about." - Elliot

"Genie and Ilia were referred to us by a friend. Right from the start we knew we had a great team. We are active duty military, about to retire, and had been stationed here several years ago. We knew exactly which neighborhoods we were interested in. Genie understood that we wanted a particular type of house, in a particular area, and did an excellent job selecting homes for us to see. We especially appreciated the extra time and effort she made to actually educate us about local builders - showing us homes that were not necessarily what we were interested in, but that illustrated the differences in designs, styles, and quality. In months, we found the perfect house. Genie and Ilia were patient, understanding, and, most importantly, not pushy. The saying “good things come to those who wait” definitely applies here." - John & Polyxena

"Genie did an amazing job helping me purchase a home in the US. My situation was particularly challenging because I do not live in the US and because I have never purchased a home before. She went beyond the call of duty managing the search, the offer and the closing process in way that made me comfortable throughout the process and confident with every decision made. I plan to use Genie in the future would recommend her to anyone buying/selling a home." - Peter

"We wanted to thank you for helping us find the perfect apartment! Without your persistence and tenacity we would have never moved into the Foxhall. We knew we were in great hands from the moment we began planning to sell our unit, Your attention to detail and huge support you provided to us during these 'trying times' of the pandemic were amazing. Your professional advice from the staging of our unit all the way through your personal participation during both settlements show your commitment to your clients. We have been settled in for about a week now and are excited to plan our many remodeling projects. We will be sure to refer you to all of our friends because of your excellent service."
- Maria and Peter P.

"We feel so fortunate to have met Ilia when we started looking for a two bedroom apartment as the process could not have been any smoother. Ilia was very professional in explaining to us every step of the process, always available when we needed her, extremely diligent in her work, highly talented in understanding and spotting apartments that matched our needs before we got notifications through online search engines that we had setup ourselves. In fact, she had the contract offer ready for the apartment that we bought before it even made it to the public listing. We highly recommend team Ilia Menocal and Genie Asmuth at Compass to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. It would be the best decision that you make!"
- Teresa and Antoine

"Hello dear I and G! Today Erdmann and I drove into DC and as we drove down Wisconsin Ave, we remembered our attempt to buy a condo at McLean Gardens and the way you two picked up on our doubts and helped us back away at the last minute, without shame or embarrassment. I am not sure we ever properly thanked you for your intervention in preventing what would have been a total mistake. Not many realtors would have done what you did after all the hassle, all the paperwork. And today we remember fondly and thank you once more.
Abrazos to both.
- Cristina and Erdmann

"Genie is the best! She was responsive, knowledgeable, and thorough, as well as a strong advocate for us (especially being first-time home buyers) while also being candid about how to make competitive offers that were more likely to be accepted by sellers."
