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.
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!

Daryl Judy and his staff helped my family tremendously through one of the toughest obstacles in our lives. We had the task of settling our wonderful Aunt's estate in Washington DC, and we are New Mexico residents. Daryl came prepared for our initial meeting with the data about the DC market and a listing strategy that we needed to prepare to sell her condo. He was patient with us throughout the probate process and hit the ground running once we had the green light to put it on the market. Daryl made the multiple offer process easy to navigate through and all of our paperwork was thoroughly explained and delivered with ease. We cannot thank Daryl and Yamile enough for their knowledge and expertise.
Daryl recently helped us acquire a "dream" property on the Bay in Annapolis and sold our Shaw townhouse at the full asking price (in 4 days!). Many of Daryl's clients have written about how easy he is to work with and the personal service that he brings to his clients. All true. But the best reason to work with Daryl - he's just smarter than most. We've used him now in 4 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 was disappointing to hear Daryl say that the days were over for a DC developer to buy our 4-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.

When I considered selling my mother's house in Somerset, my sister told me in no uncertain terms that I needed Daryl! She said he had the best sense of the market, would fight like hell for the best price, and his terrific team had worked wonders when she sold her apartment. I was not disappointed. Daryl's team researched the market and the historical background of the house, discovering things we didn't even know. Daryl's strategy and a tasteful effort to update and stage the property paid off. He was able to produce 19 offers, all of which were contingent free, and sold it for a record sales price for the neighborhood. It went $380,000 above the list price which was beyond my wildest expectations. Working with Daryl and Yamile was totally focused and professional, and the fantastic results speak for themselves. I cannot say enough good things about my experience and the results Daryl created. I would highly recommend Daryl Judy to anyone in order to sell their home for the highest price and with the most confident and professional real estate services in the industry.
I was lucky to know a real estate agent in NY who recommended me Daryl when I moved to DC. Daryl introduced me to the DC real estate market and helped me twice to make the best choices for me and my family. Daryl can add enormous value to your real estate transaction because of his talent in addition to his enormous knowledge. His professional success has been my success and this is why I would highly recommend Daryl to anyone planning to buy or sell real estate assets.
Working with Daryl and his team was truly a dream. They made the process so easy and efficient, every detail was taken care of and quickly. They knew all the right ques- tions to ask and presented options when there was more than one answer. Our unit sold without delay due to the recommendations provided by the team before we listed. Will definitely be using WFP in the future!

Daryl is a smart realtor who knows his business. I followed his advice and my place sold quickly at a number I was very happy with.
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.

Daryl helped me buy my wonderful Georgetown condo in 2010, and since I loved working with him then, I re-hired him to help me sell it in 2020. He was instrumental in helping me think through the pros and cons of holding on to a property that I loved dearly but had become a drain on me, as I now live across the country. Once I decided to sell, he and his team moved quickly and skillfully, knowing I had a limited window in which to act. His sound advice helped me navigate pricing and selling during COVID, and resulted in a very fast sale. Daryl and his team are incredibly professional, always gave wise counsel, managed everything beautifully, achieved a quick sale, and helped me feel great about the decision. I couldn’t ask for anything more

We worked with Daryl to sell our long-time home as well as to buy a new one - both in DC. End to end, the experience was outstanding. While there were many things to consider as we made plans for our move, the most important one to us was aligning with a real estate partner we could trust. We were blessed with that and more in our work with Daryl. With every step, he was professional and knowledgeable -- all of his recommendations were on point and proved to be the best for what we were seeking. He's a true service professional who delivers on his promises. We are now proud owners of a gorgeous home in a lovely community. A sincere, heart-felt thanks to Daryl for helping us to our best chapter yet!

Working with Daryl is a total dream! I had the pleasure of working with Daryl on both buying and selling. In terms of buying, Daryl knew exactly what neighborhoods would match my lifestyle and steered me away from sub-par construction and renovations. When I sold the property, again, Daryl's recommendations on what needed to be done to get it sold quickly at the price I wanted were spot-on. Not only that but he's really well connected to a great team of people who help get projects finished on-time and on-budget! The place sold above ask in about two weeks, exceeding my expectations. On top of it all, Daryl is a great joy to work with. He's incredibly hard-working, reliable, kind, and funny
My husband and I have both bought and sold a house with Daryl and his team and I would 100% recommend them to any buyer/seller in the DMV area. Daryl is extremely knowledgeable of the market, the various neighborhoods within DC and he and his team are always super responsive! With both transactions, I felt taken care of and things went extremely smoothly from beginning to end.

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!
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, Anthony, and the rest of the team are knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with.

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, tight time schedule, 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.

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 onthe market and made it happen for me. At the same time, he sold my home in a fewdays. 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 team to take care of details with showings and paperwork. He knows his business and care.
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 broker, 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 Virginia Pommerening, Operations Manager for WFP. 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!

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 helpingus snag it. We felt like we has 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 ournew home, and we wouldn’t be living here without the hardworking folks of Washington Fine Properties.

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 bd/2ba 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 Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy!
Jacob and Zach
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 milesaway. Selling a home remotely could have been very stressful and challenging, but it was easy and straightfoward 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!
Bryan Moll and Matt Miller
It was a pleasure working with Daryl Judy and his team on the sale of our condo. They are very knowledgeable about DC real estate and marketed our property through several channels that gave it maximum visibility. Daryl continuously kept us updated on the status throughout the listing period--results of open houses, inquiries, and market conditions--and pro-actively followed up with potential buyers. Our closing went through smoothly and we would not hesitate to work with Daryl and his team again.
Steve and Andy
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 pro’s and con’s 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.
Michael and Kristin Longe
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 realtors 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 a specific guidance as to what was needed to alter on my house’s appearance and teach me as to how 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 further offers were received after the open house selling well over ask. You can’t go wrong with Daryl. He is phenomenal.
We began working with Daryl at the strong recommendation of a friend and knew that our Betheda 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 Judy and Bobbie Brewster listed our home for sale in December. In January, it was under contract after receiving multiple bids for considerably more than the list price. In March, the corona virus hit the US. We closed in May at a time when many other real estate transactions faltered. That should say it all but none of this could have happened without the breath of knowledge, expertise and tireless efforts of Daryl and Bobbie. We can't thank them enough.
We recently sold our house with Daryl Judy from Washington Fine Properties. While this can be an incredibly stressful process, we felt 100% confident by partnering with Daryl and his first-class team. Daryl’s knowledge and experience produced a strategy that went from MLS listing to multiple contracts with escalations in less than a week at a selling price we were pleased with. We do not think he knew what was coming with Coronavirus, but he urged us to go live and he was right. We were able to have the open houses. If we had waited a week, we could have had a much different outcome. We are so grateful for his expertise. Daryl is the epitome of everything you could want in a realtor.
