Derry Haws is a great believer in always learning and adapting. Early in her career in film and television with the BBC she was taught that it was important to be able to work together in a positive professional way to achieve the very best outcome.

Derry prides herself on providing top-tier service...with an edge.  Her knowledge stretches far beyond the real estate realm, and she offers her clients superior local expertise, a no-nonsense approach, and a flare for architecture and interior design.

Client Testimonials

I cannot imagine ever working with anyone other than Derry Haws, the consummate real estate professional. I first worked with Derry in 2015 and our latest transaction is one reason I ALWAYS work with her: Put the house on the market December 18, 2022. Held one Open House which brought 90 people and MANY brokers through and 11 consequential offers in less than 48 hours -- one offer for WAAAY over asking. Closed on December 30, 2022.

Louise E.T.

Working with Derry was an absolute pleasure. She is extremely knowledgeable and works to accommodate your every request. She was by far our best experience in terms of renting a house in D.C. and helped us find a phenomenal property for well under market value. Highly recommended working with Derry.

Douglas Dean Stone

The name Derry Haws is synonymous with trust and caring, that is why I chose Derry to sell my condo in Clarendon. She was there for me from beginning to end full of good ideas and helpful insight. It is not about the money, making the quick sale but about helping her client. I highly recommend her, not only did I sell my apartment right away, I got multiple offers as well and more money than I thought possible.
As an agent myself I am happy I chose Derry.

Pamela Seitz

Derry Haws has been my Realtor of choice for several years, representing me in the rentals of three deluxe furnished units in the prestigious Westbridge Condominium in Washington DC. She has consistently done an excellent job in marketing these properties, using effective advertising strategies, cooperating with top real estate colleagues, working effectively with tenants and advising me on repairs, décor, and pricing trends and strategies. She is always looking for ways to innovate in improving her ability to find the best tenants for my units.

William Reynolds

Derry helped me rent out my place in Washington DC. She was very helpful and effective. In a short time she managed to identify a number of potential renters and guided me through the whole process. Derry is dynamic and effective in addition to be pleasant and agreeable to work with.
You can rely on her.

Wafik Grais

Derry is a gifted professional and an expert in reading the needs of her clients through quick learning and deep understanding to deliver what people both want and need. She helped our family make a significant move from Europe to 'anywhere' in the DC area. Derry did so with grace, clarity and sophistication that was nothing short of miraculous. Her touch of humanity, sensitivity and elegance gave us comfort, direction and guided us to a superb location –all whilst making us feel as we were here only clients. She went beyond the call of duty.

Rebecca Bucnis

Derry has helped my family find wonderful houses on two occasions. The first when we arrived in DC from the UK with no idea about the housing market, and the second when we were knew what we were looking for but had quite specific demands. In both cases, Derry was wonderful. She has a very cool, calm manner but such a friendly way about her that she's a joy to work with. More importantly, she's successful. We certainly recommend her highly and look forward to working with her again in the future.
