Sold a Apartment home in 2020 in Washington, DC.
Derry Haws is by far the best realtor that my wife and I have worked with in the past 50 years. She navigated us through the sale of our friends condo on the edge of Georgetown by identifying ways to satisfy the district's requirements and underwriter's concerns due to power of attorney and conservator requirements. From listing, staging, open house, selection of buyer to closing, Derry provided professionalism, sound advice and guidance. We know that you will be happy that you have selected Derry to sell your property.
Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Chevy Chase, MD
Derry acted as our agent in the sale of our homes in Annapolis and in Chevy Chase. She also helped us locate an excellent renter for our Chevy Chase.
For our Annapolis house, Derry sold our modest home within 30 days. At the time, homes in Annapolis stayed on the market for an average of 180 days. She did this through her extraordinary creativity and by working closely with another agent who was more familiar with the Annapolis market. She listened to us carefully, quickly grasped our goals and needs, and came up with clever ways of generating extra interest in the house - one of these was a "Cupcake and Champaign" event for our neighbors.
When it was time to sell our Chevy Chase house, we again turned to Derry and we're glad we did so. She listened to us carefully, researched the local market, and came up with a strategy that succeeded brilliantly: our house was sold after a week on the market at a price that was well above the asking price.
What makes Derry so successful is a combination of qualities: intelligence, honesty, creativity, and experience as a realtor. She is very ethically grounded, which inspires confidence and trust in everyone she encounters. I'd recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor in the MD/DC/VA and Annapolis area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Coronado, CA.
Derry Haws demonstrated that she is more than just a real estate agent. She guided us through a major transition that involved selling our home in Washington and moving to California for a new position. This required quick decisions with little time to prepare. Yet she came up with a sound strategy to market the house in time for the summer peak in Washington real estate sales. No detail was too small. She recommended structural upgrades, landscaping enhancements and minor repairs to improve marketability of the property. She understood our constraints and was always careful to review every option without pressuring us one way or another. Once we decided on a plan, she was meticulous in the execution, ensuring that we attracted a good cross-section of potential buyers with several offers above our asking price. Her careful staging of the house and the montage of photographs made the property sparkle, so it truly stood out among the many similar properties for sale in the neighborhood. When she saw something that was not quite right, she would not just say something but wood get it taken care of. After leading us through the intricate negotiations leading to a final contract. She then lined up the final settlement quickly so that we could have the proceeds in time to close on a new home in California. At every stage of the process she went the extra mile to keep us informed and make sure we were prepared for the next step. Derry's positive energy and holistic approach transformed what could have been an anxiety-ridden move into a rewarding experience. We highly recommend her as an outstanding professional.
