Virginia: Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County
A native of Washington, DC, Micah spent his early childhood in Arlington, Virginia, later moving to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where he attended college and earned a degree in Communication Studies at James Madison University. As a natural next step, Micah worked for a group of Congressmen and Senators as their representative to the National Student Leadership Forum, where his focus was mentoring student leaders and connecting them with political and business leaders as well as other student leaders at different universities from across the country. He went on to become involved in the Northern Virginia real estate industry, through his interest in the construction field.
Ultimately, Micah found that his passion for serving people was best used in helping clients navigate the difficult process of buying and selling their homes. He has worked as a sales associate for a number of established firms in the Washington Metropolitan area, before joining Washington Fine Properties in 2009 along with his business partner, Jennifer Harper Thornett.
Micah currently lives in Ashburn, Virginia, with his wife Sara and their four daughters. He works out of the McLean Office of Washington Fine Properties and focuses primarily in the Loudoun, Fairfax, and Arlington Counties of Virginia.

After interviewing four realtors and groups in early spring of this year (2023), I determined that Micah Corder and Jennifer Harper Thornett of Washington Fine Properties were the best representatives to assist with the sale of my home. As this was my first foray into the market after 21 years in our new-construction home, I relied on Micah and Jennifer for guidance and advice on every aspect of updating and preparing the house for sale. And I mean "everything"! Even before any formal listing agreement, they freely offered styling advice and kindly referred me to excellent contractors where needed.
Their attitude was wonderful throughout, as well as their kind patience with me. To say that Micah “held my hand” (along with the full team) is an understatement. Always available by phone, text and email; and ALWAYS willing to meet personally over the months of preparation.
I must also describe the incredible professional assistance provided by their excellent Marketing and Operations leader Julia Cheung. Once again, Julia was always available to me, and her advice and support with stylishly updating the home were invaluable. I am certain Micah and Jennifer could not do what they do so well without Julia. Thank You Julia!
Their market and pricing guidance was superb and resulted in an offer and contract for sale after just four days on the market.
I doubt a better home-selling experience exists. And I say with zero reservations: I could not have done this entire selling project so well, without my Washington Fine Properties team, Micah, Jennifer and Julia. And I am honored to call them friends.
Add multiple stars to the highest star rating ever seen. I have referred others to them and will continue to do so without reservation.
Thank you. Everyone.
Dear Jennifer, Micah, and Julia,
Thank you very much for an incredible job in getting the condo sold in less than three months. The total end-to-end control and execution of the sales process was truly impressive (i.e., cleaning, painting, staging, etc.). The entire process was managed very professionally, and we believe that it resulted in a very successful outcome for all parties concerned. The entire experience working with you all as a team was absolutely amazing and we look forward to working with you in future. Thank you all!
Jennifer, Micah, and Julia are a truly dedicated team. They brought all their experience and professional skills to selling our home when the housing market turned much less favorable this past fall. We’re grateful for their assistance in crossing the finish line under challenging circumstances!
Thornett + Corder is a first-rate operation, and my husband, John, and I enthusiastically recommend them. Jenny, Micah, Julia, and the team are highly knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. Likely because their results speak for themselves, they are no-nonsense, refraining from over-marketing and "realtor-speak," and that builds the sort of trust that is important in buying real estate. From the time we first met them by videoconference, they understood us and what we were looking for. That was clear when they quickly found a house that was not yet on the market and told us that we should see it, because it was what we were looking for. They were spot on—and we now own the house. And even still, they are helping us as we move to a new city.
Jenny, Micah, and their team were great to work with during the home-buying process. They showed us a wide variety of options, were patient, and were quick to respond and provide helpful advice whenever we had questions. With a minimal amount of inventory available during the period we were looking, it was particularly helpful that they had access to a lot of unlisted properties. We would recommend them without hesitation to other families looking to buy a house.
Micah and Jennifer are the best in the business. Their knowledge of local markets and neighborhoods is unparalleled and allows them to pounce on opportunities before the rest of the market. Buying a home is both thrilling and terrifying. Micah and Jennifer simplified the process for us and gave us the confidence we needed to find and buy our dream home!
We have used Micah for three different home sales/purchases and have been more impressed each time. He is so friendly, helpful and professional and truly is amazing at what he does! We also worked with Julia to help with the prep and staging of our home sale and was so thankful she was on his team to help make sure we were more than ready. With Micah’s expertise, we were able to sell our home quickly and for more than what we hoped. I trust him completely through the process and wouldn’t use anyone else. I would highly recommend Micah and team!
We recently sold our house with Jenny and Micah, and they exceeded every expectation we had! At every turn they were knowledgeable and professional, giving us great advice and support, but even more than that, they went above and beyond to help us get our house ready for the market and ultimately to sell our house quickly and for a fantastic price. They even made what could have been a very stressful process manageable and even fun at times. I would highly recommend them if you have any real estate needs!
My wife and I worked with Micah Corder and the wonderful team at Washington Fine Properties to find our “forever home” after he was recommended by a close friend. It’s important to note that we had a laundry list of non-negotiables and we are extremely particular, so our home search spanned the course of two years and over 20 houses before we found our new home! There wasn’t a single moment throughout the entire two-year search process where Micah tried to push us or sway us in any direction other than getting us exactly what we wanted! Micah exhibited excellent work habits and consistently demonstrated professional judgment in his role, and he also has incredible attention to detail.
I am a Partner and tax advisor at a global CPA/accounting/advisory firm and live/operate in a business where world-class client service is my highest priority and delivering that daily to our clients is what I pride myself in. I’m only giving you that background because it’s very rare for me to feel like I’m getting the kind of client experience from service providers that I bring forth to my clients every day. However, Micah and his team undoubtedly exceeded those expectations! My wife and I were blown away by the NEXT-LEVEL professionalism, patience, guidance, and first-rate responsiveness that we were blessed to get from Micah and the Washington Fine Properties team!
Generally, I do not feel compelled to take the time to write reviews as such, (especially during the middle of tax season with countless demands on my time; however, after this exceptional experience, WFP has earned a new customer for life, and Micah is unquestionably a trusted advisor in the real estate space! When my firm has new Partners relocating to the DMV, I will absolutely be sending them Micah’s way!
We were more than happy with our experience with the HRL team. Right from the beginning, they demonstrated how professional and experienced they are. They had a crisp, sharp presentation that exhibited a stellar marketing sense and a keen sense of the market. They blew us away in terms of their smarts on many levels, and we knew they were the right realtors to sell our home. HRL did a thorough walkthrough of our property and gave us a list of improvements to make the home picture- perfect when it went on the market—and they had a great set of contractors lined up to do the work for us quickly and at good prices. They promised us that the team approach mattered because we would have constant access to someone with questions or concerns—every one of our emails and phone calls was answered within minutes and no detail was too small to merit the team's attention.
We were especially impressed when they recognized a dearth of supply in the market and helped us get to market sooner than we anticipated. The marketing materials were stellar—from the website to the brochures to the pictures, floor plans, etc. Just a super-high level of professionalism. And the results were fabulous—we were on the market on a Friday, and by the following Tuesday we had multiple offers and went to contract well-above our asking price,—so smart pricing, market savvy and great marketing paid off. One of the best decisions we ever made was to hire HRL Partners—they were simply great advisors.
And on top of it, everyone on the team was a joy to deal with—funny, personable, and light-hearted at the right time.
I just sold my home in McLean, and the team of Thornett and Corder were excellent. It was a tough transaction with some difficult and unexpected obstacles along the way, but because of their industry knowledge and expertise, honed over 20 years in the business, the deal closed. They recommended other industry specialists when I needed them, and they too were excellent. Those industry specialists had a high regard for Thornett + Corder, which helped in dealing with the situation. The team was very responsive during the clutch times and went way above and beyond any other realtor team I have used in the past. I especially appreciated their honesty and forthright evaluation of the decisions I faced. I felt I had truthful and practical input, which was crucial as the situation unfolded. I highly recommend!
It has never been more important to have high-quality real estate guidance taking you through the process of selling your home. Jennifer, Micah, and their team provided not just insight and advice but also manpower and resources for us to tap in order to move our home to market-ready condition.
Jennifer and Micah and their entire team did a fantastic job. We got the result we wanted and we got there smoothly with incredible support and expertise from Thornett+ Corder/Washington Fine Properties.
With so many real estate agent choices, we are so thankful to have found Jennifer & Micah. Even in such a great seller’s market, we were reminded how important it is to be led by the right and best team. Jennifer & Micah were consistently professional, hold a sophisticated expertise regarding the local market (particularly Mclean), and were such genuine, good listeners throughout, which we really appreciated. Their experience is top tier yet they were so down to earth and always reachable whenever we had questions/concerns. We know that our house was able to sell so quickly in a weekend at the phenomenal price it did because of Jennifer, Micah and their team. We had such a good experience with T&C, that we chose them for 2 more home purchases thereafter, one of which is a new build with Toll Brothers, where Jennifer’s elegant design eye and extensive experience will be very appreciated.
If you are in search of a realtor, stop looking right now and do yourself and your family a favor by calling Washington Fine Properties. Jennifer Harper Thornett, Micah Corder and their team are simply the best. From the very first conversation to the seamless closing on our new home, they were nothing short of spectacular to work with. They listen, are responsive, patient, thorough, savvy, action-orientated, professional and above all incredibly honest. They really are without equal, and our family would highly recommend them to anyone buying and/or selling a home.
I have purchased and sold a total of 5 homes with the help of Micah and Jennifer over 10 years. You won’t find a more knowledgeable, passionate team of housing experts in the Norther Virginia area. We finally purchased our dream home in August 2019 in a multiple-bid situation. The agent told me point-blank that dealing with someone of Jennifer’s reputation won us the contract, even though others were willing to pay more. It doesn’t get more powerful than that.
Now that we have settled into our new home and closed on the sale of our previous residence, we wanted to take the time to thank you, Micah and Julia for all of your incredible help throughout this process. I could not imagine a more successful outcome: you were able to find us our dream home at a time when there was extremely limited inventory and then get us under contract to sell our prior home in just three days (for above asking price)!
We want to especially thank you, Micah and Julia for your experience, judgment, professionalism, honest advice, organization and friendship throughout the process. You and Micah know this area and the ins-and-outs of real estate transactions and negotiations better than anyone. You took the time to understand exactly what our family needed and identified the perfect home for us. Julia was incredible in keeping us organized and making sure that everything was done on time. The responsiveness of the team was far more than could be expected. Day or night, at least one of you was always able to answer our questions and help us through this process. Finally, when you said you would make it easy on us to sell our current home, you really delivered. You gave us great recommendations on what should be done to prepare the house for sale, took care of everything for us, and the end result was a three-day sale process with six different offers at or above asking!
Although the process is over for now, we will not forget all that you have done for us as we enjoy our new home. And if it ever comes time to move again, you can be sure that we will be calling on you. Thanks again for everything! We will miss working with you, Micah and Julia and hope that we will stay in touch.
Jennifer and her team are top-notch and exceeded expectations. She knows the Arlington, McLean, DC area inside and out as well as every agent out there! We put our trust in Jennifer and her team, and she delivered on both the buying and selling side. Jennifer and her team are responsive, knowledgeable, and decisive. Everything you want in today's real estate market!
We had a very positive experience with Jennifer and the WFP team! From our first phone call, we were extremely impressed with Jennifer’s knowledge of the market and approach to home buying. She was generous with her time and had great insights for us to consider, which ultimately led to us finding the perfect house for our family (within only a few weeks of working with her). She and her team helped us navigate a few tricky issues in the process, and we always felt confident that we were getting good advice and working with a great advocate. Thank you so much, Jennifer; we love our new home!!
Jennifer Thornett and Micah Corder are a fabulous real estate team for anyone looking for a new home in Northern VA. They have an incredible depth of knowledge, will find options that fit your needs and wishes, and they have your back throughout the entire process. The search for a new home is a journey and these guys are the best agents out there to guide you along the way.
Jennifer and Micah were a great team to work with. This was our second transaction with them. They helped us get our house in great shape for sale, worked with our schedule to find an opportune time to list, and patiently walked us through all aspects of the final transaction. Even with COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, we were under contract 4 days after listing!
Working with Jenny and Micah makes what could be a stressful experience a truly pleasurable experience. This is the second time we have used them and we can share that their knowledge, professionalism and advice is beyond valuable. From personally shopping for accent items that helped to enhance our home to sitting with us in our living room while waiting to hear if our house was officially under contract, they go above and beyond to help ensure that they were with us every step of the way.
I can’t say enough good things about Jenny and Micah and their team. I’ve worked with Jenny over the past three years on a number of real estate sales — all with great success. I found her experienced, honest, responsive, and dedicated. She’s a go getter for sure, but most of all she’s just a great human being of impeccable character. I’m lucky to know her and would do business with her without reservation.
Hi Jenny, Micah & Ellen,
Margaret and I wanted to again say THANK YOU for all you've done to get us out of and into another house. You guys are such an unbeatable team and hands down the best out there in realty or any other industry. Your focus on getting the job done completely, advocating for your clients, pushing the boundaries, and being partners and supporters for your clients is unsurpassed.
Dear Jennifer, Micah, and Ellen,
Thank you all for the quick sale of our home in Evans Farm. We were apprehensive about listing at a time when there were already several homes on the market in Evans Farm. However, the advice that you gave us and the support in getting the house ready to put on the market made all the difference in the world!
Your keen knowledge of the market and understanding of exactly what needed to be done to get the house sold quickly and at the price that we were looking for, resulted in the outcome we were looking for. We cannot thank you enough!
We highly recommend the listing agents for our house, Jennifer Harper Thornett and Micah Corder. Micah and Jennifer are an extremely professional team. They were very patient as we weighed options and decided what was best for us. We believe their agent connections and marketing made the difference for us.
It's never easy to move but they have made it so much more enjoyable by being organized, thoughtful and fun.
The service we received from Jennifer and Micah at WFP was fantastic. As parents of a special needs child, it was important that we secured a home that would meet all of our needs. Jennifer and Micah took the time to understand all of our requirements and delivered in a big way. They handled every aspect of our home purchase flawlessly. Their analysis and understanding of the market was comprehensive and spot-on. This was the most enjoyable home purchase experience we ever had. I consider Jennifer and Micah to be part of the family.
I cannot express how wonderful my experience was working with Jennifer, Micah and their entire staff. My home in N. Arlington was sold in 1 day for the full asking price at a time when there were plenty of houses for sale. Additionally, my experience purchasing my new home was equally satisfying. They knew what I was looking for and found it in a matter of days. They know the N. Virginia market better than any other real estate agents I’ve come across during my many years of living in this area. I highly recommend them for both buying and selling a home.
We are officially IN our new home and want to say thank you for all you have done. You were amazing from the word "go." You knew what we wanted (even when we weren't sure); you were whizzes at selling our home; you navigated us seamlessly through the purchase of our home; and, you even found us an awesome rental (NOT in your job description, we know!!). I know it wasn't always easy, but you have mastered the balance of smart negotiation with class, fairness and grace. We honestly could not thank you enough and are so grateful for you and the efforts you made on behalf of our family.
Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
Jenny and Micah were fantastic to work with on the sale of our Arlington home and purchase of a new home in McLean. Their combined knowledge of the market and experience were extremely helpful as we considered different neighborhoods and debated whether to build a new house or buy an existing property. On the sell side, their complementing personalities helped in navigating potential buyers and negotiating the transactions. Their support following our move has been an added bonus – their relationships with service providers and referrals have been tremendously helpful as we have settled into our new home. We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with and are grateful for their advice and friendship.
