"Wendy assisted us with purchase of an investment condominium and was the leasing agent as we secured the tenant. She was very knowledgeable of trends in the condo market and was able to advise on purchase price and potential income stream from rental. We've worked with many realtors in the past and found Wendy to have the right mix of assertiveness when things need to happen and willingness to step back when we were in a "look and see" mode." - Phyllis

"As first time home buyers, my boyfriend and I were very nervous going into this process. Wendy was extremely patient with us (we searched for over a year) and helped us find the perfect starter home. Wendy ensured that we understood every step of the process, and what to expect going forward. She even helped envison whether or not our desired rennovations were a possibility and how that should factor into purchasing the home. We couldn't have chose a better realtor and would refer Wendy to everyone!"

"After almost 10 years in Logan Circle and with a (then) 9 old, my husband and I decided to sell our condo and buy a home with more space. Wendy is detail oriented, knowledgeable and professional Wendy represented us on the buying and selling. She is knowledgeable about markets in Maryland, Virginia and DC. This was great for us as we were looking in all places when we started. She was patient in helping us narrow down our search, personally attending open houses and private showings with us for many weekends until we made a decision. On the sale side, she was proactive and thorough, anticipating problems and questions before they happened to make the process as smooth as possible. Our condo was under contract with multiple offers over asking in under a week. As a mom, Wendy is extremely attentive to the demands of going through this process with and infant. She was considerate and flexible in scheduling house showings, photography and open houses with minimal disruption to our daughter’s schedule."

"Currently a home owner considering listing in the near future, I contacted Wendy to learn more about the real estate market in and around where I live. Wendy went above and beyond with her research and took the time to produce a comprehensive, comparative market analysis report, complete with graphics, that provides a side-by-side comparison of homes for sale and homes that have recently sold in my neighborhood. Using the comps in the report, Wendy adjusted the price range data for square footage and features to determine a fair market value for my home. Wendy also provided insight on how market conditions factor when considering how much money to invest in a property. To that end, she gave me specific advice on what home improvements to make and suggestions on how to execute. At no point during the course of my communication with Wendy did I feel pressured to make a commitment to selling my house; instead, what I discovered is that Wendy, unlike most real estate agents, is a consultant in the home buying/selling process who can help her clients work through timing and pricing scenarios, address renovation/marketing needs, and ultimately achieve their real estate goals. I highly recommend her services." - Mary Ellen

"Even though I'm a licensed real estate agent, I chose Wendy to sell our property because of her proactive marketing plan, attention to detail, and professionalism. I made a good choice - the home received multiple offers and sold above asking price in less than a week! Wendy is strategic, thoughtful, and was great to work with. I highly recommend her - if you're looking for an excellent agent, look no further. Wendy went above and beyond in selling our home, including stepping in to clean and get the property ready for the market. Her insightful perspectives on pricing were exactly what we needed to make our property stand out among competing properties. Her marketing plan, both traditional and digital, was incredibly effective. In fact, her strategic marketing plan created a multiple-offer scenario after only one open house, with escalations above asking price, which netted us more money. Wendy also helped successfully navigate a few minor issues that arose prior to , to help ensure a smooth . I highly recommend Wendy." - Corey
