We’re honored for the mention of our Corcoran Street listing in local real estate site, UrbanTurf. We thought this was a special listing too. Read the article: “Fierce Competition, But Pickier Buyers: The Climate of the DC Housing Market”.
We love it when our listings get a little extra attention! This charming one-bedroom and one-bath flat with an open layout on Corcoran Street was featured in Curbed DC! Highlights of this boutique condo are a spacious living room with bay window, real hardwood floors and high ceilings, and renovated open Euro-style kitchen with white Carrara marble countertops complete with breakfast bar. The pièce de résistance is the large 13′ x 15′ south-facing private deck!
Kara and Wayne thanked their clients for making 2018 their best year yet, with over $18 million in sales! Their clients joined them at the Gaslight Tavern, a cozy turn-of-the-century themed spot in U Street, warmed by one of the three fireplaces. The evening included delicious food, classic cocktails, and excellent company. Thank you to everyone who shared in the evening! A special thank you to KVS Title and the Kingsbury Mortgage team at Vellum Mortgage for partnering on the event!
Kara was honored to make the list of Top 10 Individual Agents in her company across 6 offices in the DC area as of the 3rd Quarter of 2018.
Kara was the #1 Individual Agent for the Keller Williams Maryland/DC Region for sales volume in February 2018 and #2 for units sold.
She also made the list of Top 10 Individual Agents in her company across 6 offices for 2017:
Kara is incredibly grateful for the relationships that have supported her in her business over the years and is honored to be among this group of outstanding real estate agents in her company.
We are thrilled to announce that Kara was recognized for the third year in a row as a “Top Agent” by Washingtonian magazine! The issue is on stands today. Each year, the magazine recognizes agents and teams who produced among the highest sales volumes in the DC area*. With over 3,200 licensed agents based in the District of Columbia alone (per MRIS) and over 20,000 agents in the DC Metro area, we consider this a huge honor.
*The Greater Capital Area Association of REALTORS® represents more than 8,500 members from Washington DC and Montgomery County, Maryland and the Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS® has more than 12,000 members.
We love it when our listings make the news! This affordable, charming, and bright unit at The Clydesdale was featured in the Washingtonian‘s list of Best Open Houses! We like to get creative with our marketing to showcase when a Condo or Coop listing we have is pet-friendly and, in this case, we asked the photographer to take a photo of our clients’ adorable Yorkie pup to include in the virtual tour and marketing materials. Sorry, Manchego does not convey with the property.
Now expecting their first child they have embarked on adding the 2nd bath and a walk-in closet off the master bedroom. The other day we had the pleasure of touring their work in progress which is almost finished except for some final tile work and fixtures. It looks beautiful and is sure to add even more value than the pre-renovation appraisal indicated. We are always thrilled to hear stories like that as our clients increase their net worth through real estate.
As a follow-up to a blog post I wrote in October 2015 about a client success story, our client Josh recently had his 2-unit property in Shaw re-appraised and the value came in at $1,085,000! So if we do the math, he paid $625K in 2014, it appraised for $925K in 2015, which makes a grand total of $460,000 in appreciation in 2 years! He invested in renovations and put in a lot of sweat equity and it really paid off!
