“Daryl Judy’s customer service is beyond reproach. From first finding suitable places to view all the way to the closing, he is the best at follow-through I have ever seen, in any business.

I am glad I had him working with me in my first home-buying process.”
“A number of realtors I contacted prior to you swore that I would never get my asking price for my home, but you proved them wrong. Your marketing strategy and assistance in getting my home ready for sale were invaluable.”

Daryl Judy’s expertise, sound counsel, and deep knowledge of the D.C. real estate market were invaluable to me during my condo search and eventual purchase. He provided the kind of reassurance that comes from knowing that one has a seasoned professional who is at the top of his/her field, working tirelessly on one’s behalf, and providing assured guidance throughout the process. I’ve since advised several of my friends to use his services, because I want them to have the best representation possible as they undertake the major life event and financial transaction that is a home purchase.
I am wholeheartedly convinced that the reason we were able to sell our house at a price that dramatically exceeded our expectations was that we dutifully followed Daryl Judy’s advice every step of the way. From the very beginning of the process through a four-party bidding war, Daryl engendered tremendous confidence; he was clear, direct, professional, understanding, detail-oriented, and responsive. Daryl deeply understands the DC market; not only does he know what will attract buyers, but he also walks his clients through the reasoning behind his recommendations so that the experience of showcasing a home is truly that of a team working together towards maximum mutual benefit from pre-listing to post-closing.
Daryl and the team were wonderful. He was honest, responsive, and willing to go the distance (in fact, he once cut his vacation short to show us a property). From the initial consult to sending us a picture of the sold sign on our new house, we felt like we were in great hands with Daryl. We know we wouldn’t be in our dream house if it wasn’t for his dedication and tenacity, and we look forward to staying in touch and sending future homebuyers in his direction.
Daryl and the entire WFP team worked hard to find us a home that we love and that checked all of our boxes. In short, Daryl is responsive, professional, and thorough. He understands the market well and will move heaven and earth to find you a home you love. We plan to work with Daryl again when the time is right.
My husband and I had the pleasure of selling and buying with Daryl in 2010. He is an outstanding real estate agent who helped us reach our end goals by effectively navigating a challenging real estate market. We would definitely work with Daryl again in the future and highly recommend him to our friends and family.
We began working with Daryl at the strong recommendation of a friend and knew that our Bethesda condo was in good hands. When the coronavirus hit and people became hesitant to buy in multi-family buildings, Daryl was not deterred. He prepared brand-new marketing materials and jump-started a new campaign for our property, resulting in the highest-priced Bethesda condo sale of the year. Thanks, Daryl!
Daryl and his team were great. They made selling my occupied two-unit rental property at the height of the pandemic seem like a piece of cake. Not only did they understand the complexities of local regulations regarding the sale of rental properties, they also made the process as easy as possible for both me and my tenants. I highly recommend them.
Daryl was a tough negotiator and helped me get an amazing deal on my new home. He also provided great contacts to an architect that I ultimately hired to do some renovation plans for me. He was very responsive and very personable.
We have worked with Daryl on several real estate transactions where he has helped our family either buy or sell a home and have been very impressed with his expertise, professionalism, and dedication to his clients. We will definitely work with him in the future.
Daryl was the consummate professional as he guided me through my first-ever purchase. From beginning to end of the process, he was always available and incredibly informative. I'd recommend him for anyone.
Daryl and his team are the top DC Realty Team in my opinion. He has the pulse of the metro DC real estate market and was instrumental in our acquiring one of the few top-notch properties offered this past year in a very competitive market. His judgment and insight are incomparable. He is immediately available and very resourceful. I highly recommend him to you, whether to sell or buy a home.
Daryl was instrumental in selling our home. This was our first time selling a house, and after taking a job in another state, we were living nearly 1,000 miles away. Selling a home remotely could have been very stressful and challenging, but it was easy and straight-forward with Daryl. He walked us through every step and provided the highest level of service. He was available whenever we needed him, and he was always so helpful. Daryl and his extensive network allowed us to conduct the transaction in the private market, which allowed us to skip the process of listing the house publicly. And we were able to get top dollar at the same time. Finally, the settlement process was a piece of cake with Daryl’s help. We highly recommend Daryl and can’t thank him enough for such a great experience!
Daryl helped me maneuver through the incredibly complicated world of purchasing a first home in DC with ease and professionalism. He worked hard to make sure I found something that fit my needs and negotiated for terms that protected my interest. When inevitable hiccups arose throughout the process, Daryl was right there to fight to make sure issues were addressed. His reputation and knowledge of the market were invaluable in this process. Without a doubt, when I look for my next home, I would call Daryl.
We were intimidated about buying our first home, but Daryl made us feel confident and energized throughout the process. While we searched for houses, Daryl was always available and eager to jump on the phone and offer honest opinions, answer questions, and share contacts. When we found the house we wanted, we were amazed at how fast and efficient Daryl was in helping us snag it. We felt like we had insider tips on how to make the most competitive offer, thanks to Daryl’s experience, expertise, and connections. When it came time to close, his assistant was a knowledgeable and thoughtful coach to have on our side. We love our new home, and we wouldn’t be living here without the hardworking folks of Washington Fine Properties.
We are absolutely delighted to share our experience with Washington Fine Properties. What made this such a satisfying and stress-free experience was working with our real estate agent, Daryl Judy, whom we found to be extremely competent and totally effective in every aspect of this transaction. He operated with absolute integrity. When he said he was going to do something, he did it and in the time frame that he projected. In fact, on many occasions, he delivered beyond our expectations! He always made us feel comfortable and that we were in good hands. This efficiency was augmented with the excellent assistance of Daryl's operations manager.. She was always able to answer our questions or get those answers for us promptly. Our transaction was selling an estate property, which comes with its inherent complications, but our process went as smooth as silk. Our property had multiple offers and had a buyer within one week of posting! WFP and Daryl Judy were recommended to us, and we will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone! Believe it or not, the experience we had felt like fun...and did we say stress-free? Indeed!
I want to share my strongest possible praise for Daryl Judy. I have actually worked with Daryl on two properties in the past twelve months, once for selling and once for purchasing. Daryl was exceptional in both cases. When selling my place, Daryl's advice on staging, pricing, and marketing the unit was spot-on. Despite putting my place on the market at a difficult time, Daryl's strategies resulted in a bidding war and secured a price significantly higher than even my most aggressive hopes. He was all I could have asked for and more. When purchasing my new place, Daryl was similarly exceptional. However, this time his extensive relationships with key players across the city meant that he knew my target neighborhoods like the back of his hand, already knew comps in the area, was able to negotiate aggressively, and closed the deal rapidly. Less than two weeks after contacting Daryl, we had our dream place, for a figure significantly below the seller's asking price. Daryl, hands down, is the best. If he can fit you into his client list, jump on the chance.
Daryl was stupendous from my first meeting until closing. To be frank, I had never thought that there was much difference between real estate agents until I met Daryl. I had previously put my house on the market in red-hot North Arlington, thinking it would easily sell, based upon my realtor’s guidance and being a financial advisory for 20+ years. After three months on the market and no offers, it was clear we were wrong. Daryl came in with specific guidance as to what needed to be altered on my house’s appearance and taught me how to identify the potential buyers and price the property accordingly. Daryl made all of the arrangements with the contractors and stagers without any decisions having to be made by me, which saved countless hours and headache. The first offer was received in less than 24 hours after going live on the market over asking price (which he said no to), and five additional offers were received after the open house. I sold well over ask. You can’t go wrong with Daryl. He is phenomenal.
Daryl and his team made sure I didn’t settle for anything less than my dream home. Even when I wanted to compromise some of my wishes, Daryl reminded me that wasn’t what I wanted. He was always frank with me, so I knew I could trust him. In the end, I found the perfect place for me and I could not be happier. It all came together, and I can’t thank the entire team enough for helping me through the process of buying my first home. THANK YOU!
Daryl Judy has been my best-ever resource for both finding and selling homes. I was pointed to Daryl, who found a perfect house not yet on the market and made it happen for me. At the same time, he sold my home in a few days. Eight years later, Daryl helped me buy a new home and sell the old one. All with the incredible energy, responsiveness, and expert guidance that I can’t imagine anyone else doing so well. He was always available with his team to take care of details with showings and paperwork. He knows his business and cares.
Daryl is the epitome of hard work, business smarts, and professionalism all rolled into one. I challenge anyone out there to find me a harder-working real estate professional in DC—or anywhere for that matter. On top of that, Daryl is honest, realistic with clients on both sides of the transaction, and just a real pleasure to work with.
I have watched Daryl Judy’s amazing talent for years. So, when it was time for me to sell my beloved condo near Logan Circle there was only one person I trusted, and the results surpassed my expectations! From the start, Daryl was direct, honest, and clear on what needed to be done to ensure success in this very bizarre market. Everything he said was exactly right and I’m glad I listened – from improvements to staging to market timing to pricing. Daryl also brings a top-notch team to the sale – Yamile Someillan was amazing. She is so organized, knowledgeable, and accessible. She made what could be stressful paperwork and scheduling seem so easy. Both are so kind, responsive, and clear on what’s needed to make the process go as smoothly as possible. It doesn’t end there. Daryl and his team also have connections with contractors and brought them to the table for a few improvements that were needed prior to going on the market and for a last-minute issue just days before closing. It is so hard to get contractors these days, and that was so imperative to keep things on schedule. For a condo I was resistant to let go, the process ended with over 15 offers in a few days and $161K over asking price. I was happy that there were so many people out there who saw the value and magic of my home. I believe it was due to the energy, connections, and passion of the Daryl Judy team! I would recommend this team to anyone selling or buying and urge them to trust the experience and the process they follow.
Daryl and his team are amazing! Anybody who has worked with him knows the splendid experiences described in his well-earned testimonials. Anybody who hasn’t should know this: he is the nicest, brightest, most industrious, and conscientious person you will ever have the pleasure to meet! He knows the diverse and ever-changing market intimately and understands the individual goals of each client. Daryl moves quickly, nimbly, thoughtfully, tirelessly. He makes a complex process effortless and is simply delightful. He gets the job done, he gets it done right, and makes it a breeze!
We have had the fortune of working with Daryl Judy for a number of years and used him to buy our first condo in Logan Circle. When the time came to upgrade to more space with our growing family, Daryl was our first and only call. He helped us think strategically about our priority wish list for our next home and made sure we had everything lined up financially to move quickly in a hypercompetitive market. When the time came to put in an offer, Daryl acted quickly, leveraged his relationships, and used his extensive expertise to draft the most competitive offer possible. We were able to successfully purchase our home in a bidding war and without going over our maximum budget. When it came time to sell our beloved condo, Daryl worked the private sale market to find us a buyer in a less-than-desirable environment due to both COVID and the Capitol Insurrection. As a result, we were able to sell our condo for our asking price and without having to go through the hassle, unknowns, and costs of putting it on the market. We couldn't have pulled off either of these transactions, let alone both of them, without Daryl's unflinching guidance and expertise in an extremely challenging and competitive market. Simply put, Daryl knows the region's market like none other, and because of his relationships and expertise to act quickly and efficiently, he made both buying AND selling seamless for us. The world presents enough stresses in our daily lives, but because of Daryl, our recent experience in the DC real estate market could not have worked out better. We are incredibly grateful to Daryl and his team for everything!
We chose to work with Daryl Judy after meeting at an open house in our neighborhood; it was evident after our meeting that he knew the market very well. We were selling during a stressful time, a tight time schedule, a second baby on the way, and a new home already signed and ready to go. We knew Daryl was going to be responsive, honest, and knowledgeable—not to mention, WFP carries a very well-earned reputation. We were able to lean on Daryl’s market knowledge as we set the price, negotiated the sale, and navigated aspects of our HOA. Everything was settled, signed, and complete just before our baby arrived. Highly recommend Daryl.
I am so thankful for Daryl Judy and his skilled team at WFP for their recent assistance in selling a coop owned by an elderly friend whose affairs I manage. Al is in his 90s, his husband had passed away several years ago, and he bravely made the decision for himself to move into a supported living environment. But once he made that decision, goodness, he wanted it to happen yesterday! Daryl and his team immediately sprang into action, getting the place staged, photographed, on the market, and sold in barely a month’s time. When buyers came in to try and make an offer before he was accepting contracts, Daryl rejected those efforts, understanding how important it was that the process be competitive, and Al realize all the money he could to pay for his future care. I was grateful for Daryl’s compassionate help as he assisted me in explaining the sales process to Al, closing a great deal with challenging sellers, and even bringing in team members to assist in clearing out some of the coop contents. With Daryl’s support, Al is now happy and safe in his new home!
Daryl’s outstanding reputation in every facet of real estate profession precedes him, so when I decided to sell my loft, there was no other professional that I envisioned helping me accomplish the task than Daryl. From our very first meeting, it became evident why Daryl has such an excellent reputation. He has an eye for the big picture as well as for details that made a material difference. He also works with a group of professionals who are also at the top of their game in their respective areas of expertise. The photographs of the property taken for the website were outstanding, the staging was top-notch, and the painting of key areas was performed very professionally and in a very timely manner. It is worth highlighting that Daryl was very careful in weighing costs/benefits when making recommendations to present the unit in the best light. Also, Daryl had broad and consistent oversight with regard to every single person responsible for any part of the transaction, including me. The unit was sold in less than a week after only one open house at a price that I was extremely happy with. Daryl’s negotiation skills go way beyond price, as his experience allowed him to use tools that were unknown to me. One of Daryl’s greatest skills is that he knows how communicate with others and was always available to me. While he took the initiative to contact me regarding every key date in the process, he was also there to provide answers to all my questions and put me at ease as necessary. While I initially came to Daryl due to his reputation, the many critical details of the selling/closing process showed me the many reasons why Daryl is so successful. I have worked with several real estate professionals in the past, and none hold a candle to him. I could go on and on about Daryl’s results-driven talent, but the above are the most salient examples that highlight why Daryl would be my go-to agent again in the future.
Daryl Judy was a consummate real estate professional from the moment I walked into his Open House on the first day of listing what would become my new apartment! His expertise as a Realtor was immediately apparent, as was his personal warmth and enthusiasm. I introduced myself as a renter in the same building, “just looking,” but he treated me as if I were an important client nonetheless. As a first-time homebuyer, I relied on Daryl’s expertise to help me through the steps of deciding to purchase. Daryl was extremely helpful in explaining the difference between co-ops and condos and did not make me feel I was being pressured or rushed to make a decision to buy. I could not have been happier to find my ideal home through Daryl, who made the experience a real pleasure!
Daryl really helped us during our move to Washington, D.C. We were in desperate need of a professional in Real Estate who knew the intricacies of the Washington, D.C., neighborhoods and where we would best fit in. He paid high attention to our interests, tastes, and budget. He was masterful at navigating the paperwork, fellow agents, and closing process to make our purchase as painless as possible. Two years later, we are still in our D.C. home and love our neighborhood. Thanks, Daryl
When the time came to sell our home in Chevy Chase, MD, Daryl was our only phone call. Daryl was beyond respectful of our need for privacy and set a strategy to make sure our property was sold quickly at the asking price he recommended. We were so impressed with Daryl’s network and his ability to get our home under contract in a matter of days at full asking price and without contingencies. Having the right broker who knows the temperature of the market as well as what will speak to a very specific pool of buyers (in our case) is invaluable. The attention to detail around every aspect of the marketing of our home was phenomenal. We will ALWAYS recommend Daryl Judy and his team. He was patient with our needs and executed like an absolute machine on our behalf . . . not to mention he’s a pleasure to work with and sets the bar for professionalism. THANK YOU, DARYL, for always being you!
We could not have asked for a better team to sell our first home and help us navigate the purchase of a new one. Daryl and his team did a great job marketing our home and building excitement that allowed us to get well over the listing price—the highest 2-bedroom/2-bath house to sell in Parkview! We had over 150 people come through the open house and were able to accept an offer after the first weekend on the market. Daryl and his team were great at keeping us up- to-date on the process and answering any questions we had along the way. Just a few weeks later, Daryl helped guide us through a difficult buying situation and secure our new home in the Logan Circle neighborhood. We had an amazing experience with Daryl and his team. If you want to get the most out of your home and are looking for an easy team to work with, go with Daryl Judy!
We worked with Daryl to sell our condo in Logan Circle, DC. We were moving to a new house that was not going to be finished for another five months, so we had a huge ask – we needed a late settlement; otherwise, we would have to move twice. Daryl was able to find us a buyer who was not only willing to have a late settlement but also pay asking price. It gets better . . . Daryl was able to achieve all this in 24 hours after putting our listing in his newsletter, not even on the market! Daryl was wonderful to work with – knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and down-to-earth. We couldn’t have asked for a smoother sale.
Daryl and his team are a well-oiled machine. My wife and I listed our condo for sale, and in five days we had a full price, all- cash, no contingencies offer we accepted . . . just a few weeks before Christmas no less. I think this was due in large part to the following: a forward-thinking marketing plan, a well-understood prospective buyer profile, and amazing staging done by CC Staging & Design. Daryl was adamant about making sure the home was fixed up and staged to perfection for pictures and showings. The team held showings over two days during the five-day period and voila! What a rockstar team!
Our home purchase process was a little more involved, though it was in large part due to low inventory for our price range. Daryl and Anthony were available to show us many, many homes. They worked tirelessly in several multiple-bid scenarios that were all rush situations. Some had as many as 15 offers. Daryl was meticulous in helping us structure offers to have the best chance to win while still falling within the amount of risk we were comfortable with. Our winning bid out of five offers in a 24-hour market period had the right balance of limited contingencies and escalation clauses to secure the home. We absolutely love the home we found in Bethesda, which wasn’t the ideal plan we had when we set out looking to stay in D.C. The home is beautiful and spacious, with location prioritized. The neighborhood is very cute. We’re about one mile from the D.C. line, and we’re in the best school district in Montgomery County. We’re confident return on investment for this property will be extremely high while also setting our daughter up for success. Thank you very much!
We decided to sell our classic rowhouse on 13th Street, near the U Street corridor, to find a place with more space and a garden. For the sale of our house, we followed Daryl’s instructions: We left the premises and he and his crews made all the modifications needed to bring it to the market in optimum conditions. After it was staged, Daryl made a video for promotion on social media. We remember watching it and thinking, “Do we really want to sell this?” Daryl found the exact tone and highlighted very smartly the appealing features of the house and its location. It was sold in under a week and 30% above asking price. Daryl then helped us acquire an architectural gem, with a large garden, in Alexandria. Daryl’s hands-on approach and enthusiasm, coupled with his contacts, very efficient contractors, and team made this whole experience smooth, effortless, satisfactory, and thrilling. We recommend him unconditionally.
Just sold my family home of 110 years, so needless to say it was a very emotional time. I could not have found a better person than Daryl Judy to work with. He was so kind and understanding while prodding me enough to make decisions and walking me through each step. All in all, the house was sold in about 10 days in the best scenario I could hope for. I would call him in a heartbeat again for my real estate needs and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!
Daryl is phenomenal to work with. Unfortunately, I have a track record of not staying very long in my homes. That said, I’ll be using Daryl again for my next sale/purchase. His knowledge and expertise of the local area, especially in nicer, turnkey properties, is very impressive. It was this expertise and knowledge that led me to close on my new Georgetown townhouse in May 2019. I had placed a down payment on very high-end, new-construction, doorman condo in Tyson Corner that very much reminded me of the convenience and amenities of living in a NYC full-service building. After working with Daryl, he guided me to make what I believe to be a much better investment decision with the Georgetown townhome. In the end, I knew that Daryl wasn't just trying to “sell” me something in DC, but, instead, was interested in making sure that I made the right decision for me. I am very pleased with my decision with the DC townhome and really appreciate his professionalism, responsiveness, excellent negotiation skills, and post-sale service (shout-out to Anthony as well!). For someone who’s in a real estate transaction every 3-4 years, I can tell you that the whole team is also a lot of fun to work with! Do yourself a favor and reach out to him . . . you won’t regret it.
Daryl Judy is the guy to get it done. He works harder for you and achieves a better outcome than anybody I know. He has an assuring ability to handle the most complex and pressured situations with focus, integrity, and kindness. He is that rare combination of knowledge, persistence, and generosity of spirit. I should also say that I have seen him quietly, and with the same dedication and attitude of respect, donate countless volunteer hours to help DC’s homeless population.
As a busy professional, I really appreciated Daryl’s balanced approach with me. We set out my parameters for property on the whiz-bang Washington Fine Properties technology, and I got regular updates on my target markets. Even more importantly, Daryl thread a fine needle with me by being encouraging – without being pushy, and informative – without being a nuisance. When I needed to be calmed down, he handled the moments with kindness. And when he thought I should be more aggressive, he didn't cause a heart attack!
Daryl did an excellent job in helping with my home purchase. He found a place that I love and successfully guided me through the entire process. I would definitely work with him again.
Buying our first home with Daryl's Team was an excellent experience. Daryl understood both our aspirations and limitations. He was personable and professional in every communication and especially responsive when pressed to move quickly to meet deadlines. We appreciated his honest feedback on homes we were considering and his keen insight into the DC market; this proved invaluable in finding the right home for us within our budget. My husband and I were able to purchase a new home that met all of our criteria within our intended timeframe at a price we were pleased with. Daryl and the rest of his team are knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with.
Daryl Judy and his team were fantastic to work with. Daryl was always upbeat and optimistic, deftly managed the array of buyers and agents who sometimes came through multiple times, and ultimately found the perfect buyers for our home. We also appreciated Daryl’s knowledge, expertise, and time spent with us in the search and purchase of our new home. The attention to detail shown by the whole team made sure we felt very well taken care of every step of the way.
It was disappointing to hear Daryl say that the days were over for a DC developer to buy our four-story 1905 house to break up into condos. At least for now, in the barely post-COVID era in DC. We had hoped a developer wouldn’t need the seduction (and expense) of us getting the entire place painted and staged. But Daryl had a mental picture of the young couple who would come in and fall in love with the place – and in order to do so, it needed lipstick, he said. OK, we said, reluctantly. Plus -- Daryl had a hidden superpower – an amazing team of companies and people to make it happen. And after one weekend on the market, that couple was exactly who walked in the door. Daryl steered them and their agent past making anything less than a full-price offer and away from the muck of negotiating over the inspection. One month to the day from the time the house officially went on the market, we closed. We’ve bought and sold more than a handful of houses, so we’ve been down this road. The process for either buyer or seller can be rocky and perilous or mercifully short and sweet. The house is the house, but the biggest variable is your agent. Daryl Judy and his excellent team got us through, smoothly, skillfully, and diplomatically. We’re very grateful for his help in delivering the successful outcome.
Daryl is a true professional at what he does! He brings a high level of expertise, strategic thought, and attention to detail to all of his transactions. We love partnering with him on his listings because we know he will get his properties sold quickly and for top dollar, equaling success for all parties involved. He has been nothing but a pleasure to work with over the years!
Daryl recently helped us acquire a "dream" property on the Bay in Annapolis and sold our Shaw townhouse at the full asking price (in four days!). Many of Daryl's clients have written about how easy he is to work with and the personal service that he brings to their clients. All true. But the best reason to work with Daryl—he's just smarter than most. We've used him now in four transactions over the past few years. For us, this has meant that we were able to avoid a possible competing offer that could have raised the price of a house we wanted to buy; he included contract conditions that enhanced certainty on the sale of our home and that avoided last minute haggling with buyers; and in one sale, he was able to generate a sight-unseen full-price offer based on the respect fellow area agents have for him and the quality of his listings. It's a negotiation—you want the best agent on your team.
It took 24 hours to let the house contract sink in, and I'm ecstatic! I really had trouble digesting the news until now. It didn't even seem real. It's amazing! Almost $200K over list price; a contract without contingencies; virtually no hassle for us and in only a week! All the contacts Daryl provided along the way made all the aspects of moving easy. He’s amazing. He promised the moon and he delivered. A million thanks!
As we prepared to sell our condominium in Washington, DC, my wife and I did our homework. We interviewed three prospective agents to represent our property. Any one of the three would represent us well and after careful consideration we opted to go with the agent who had helped us purchase the property. After several months with many showings but no firm offers, we knew we had to make a change in representation. It was the right decision. Daryl welcomed us back, assessed our situation, and recommended a minor renovation that eliminated the concerns expressed by prospective buyers. Since we had already relocated to another state, we placed our trust in Daryl. The renovation was completed in a week. The expert staging and marketing highlighted the best features of the property and resulted in multiple offers after the first weekend on the market. Daryl’s experience and hands-on approach sold our property in four days.
I would never have gone through with my first purchase if it hadn’t been for Daryl! He takes the profession to a whole new level—there is honestly no more patient, loyal, and hardworking agent around. He takes enormous pride in his work and invests himself personally to ensure that you find the perfect home. Daryl innately understood what I needed and what options would suit me best. With the utmost professionalism, he saved me countless hours by narrowing my searches, visiting apartments so I wouldn’t have to, preparing meticulously for each of my visits and patiently holding my hand through each stage of my decision-making process. He’s a saint, considering my many requirements, but he unwearyingly knew how to guide me away from the fantasies to realistically assess what was important and possible. He pretty much moved heaven and earth to protect my interests and kept me on track from the beginning through to the day after my move and beyond. I couldn’t be happier in my new home and am certain that I made the perfect investment despite this challenging market. Don’t put your real estate needs in the hands of any other.
Daryl gave us crucial advice to guide us through the purchase of our first home. He was always quick to respond to our questions, not to mention fun and easy to work with and patient with the overwhelming number of questions that we had as first-time buyers. Once we had narrowed down our search, Daryl came to the various homes with us and consulted us on the pros and cons of each location and ultimately helped us make the right decision for our unique situation. His support didn’t even stop at helping us pick the right home, he also negotiated a great deal with the seller and then helped set us up with various suppliers to ensure a smooth inspection, moving, and even future renovation work.
Daryl represented me in connection with the sale of my DC condo. Working with Daryl and Washington Fine Properties was an overwhelmingly positive experience, such that I couldn’t even imagine better real estate agent representation than what Daryl and WFP provided. Daryl is so knowledgeable, and experienced and obviously very successful at his chosen profession. His recommendations and judgment were completely on-point in every situation; the vast and impressive resources of WFP further enhanced the overall selling experience and reduced my stress levels as a seller to their lowest possible point. Perhaps most impressively, it is easy and a pleasure to work with Daryl; he’s completely responsive, appropriate, and professional, always offering the right advice in the best manner. I recommend Daryl and WFP enthusiastically and without reservation.
My house had been on the market for several months, but I really hadn’t considered the importance of a proper marketing effort. I had an important tax deadline approaching and decided to take the process to another level. Daryl Judy and his team of professionals came in and gave my home a new look and gave me a whole new perspective on the process. Under incredibly difficult time constraints and a few last-minute hurdles, WFP had my home staged and sold at the asking price in a matter of days. No detail was too small and no effort too great to help me get my house sold quickly and efficiently. While I was living in another city at the time, Daryl and his team went above and beyond their responsibility to get my home sold with limited impact on my schedule. I would recommend them highly and without reservation.
Daryl did a great job of finding us the house we wanted quickly. He then ensured that we got a fair and functional closing, which is equally important. He's excellent at what he does.
