Commitment To Our Clients
Our track record speaks for itself. It's a well-known adage in real estate that 80% of all real estate transactions are done by 20% of the agents. Our model, however, sees it more as 90/10 and it is in that spirit we've built a company comprised of the finest agents in every market we serve. Having the most seasoned and knowledgeable agents is more important than having the largest amount agents. We are lean, nimble and effective. Less is truly more.
Wow! That's usually the reaction. We sell more homes north of $1M than any company (of any size) in the markets we serve, with record performances in every price category. Washington Fine Properties is the 70th largest real estate firm in America, with both the Highest Sales Production Per Agent and Highest Average Selling Price in not only the Capital Region but the entire East Coast.

Thomas Charuhas was at a work conference in San Francisco when his wife, Katarina, saw this house in the Palisades neighborhood of Northwest Washington in 2015. She knew they had to buy it. "I was literally across the country," he said. "But she was so excited. She convinced the builder to hold off because there were other offers. So, yeah, so I flew all the way back across the country because of this house." The house, with Nantucket-style cedar shake siding, had been completed recently, replacing one built in 1955 that was torn down to make room for it. The Charuhas family was the first to occupy the new dwelling. They were initially drawn to the property's ample size - more than half an acre - and its location on a cul-de-sac, Charuhas said. "With three kids, it was amazing," Charuhas said. "I'm a huge fan of [the location] because there's never through traffic, and there's lots of families on the street so the kids could run out and feel very safe. You see them running around between the different yards and having fun, and then coming back for dinner." Charuhas said he often hosted neighborhood dinners in his yard, in part because of its distinctive features. The culinary enthusiast installed an outdoor kitchen with a rotisserie and smokers. There's also a pizza oven imported from Naples that he and Belgian chef Claudio Pirollo of the nearby Et Voila restaurant used to cook together. The experience inspired the chef's latest project, an Italian restaurant called Claudio's Table, Charuhas said. Learn More

"We always like to say - you know for the longest time - [D.C.] is undervalued in the sense of being the capital of a country," Robert Hryniewicki of HRL Partners, which is under the Washington Fine Properties umbrella, said. "If you look at other capitals of the world - whether it's Paris or London or Berlin - the cost of living compared to the rest of the country is very expensive." Researchers and market experts often use words like, "moderate" and "stable" to describe D.C.'s housing market. The metro is rarely on the top of the booming market rankings, but it's also never on any lists of "over-inflated" or "juiced-up" markets. But now D.C.'s days in the shadows are over, says Hryniewicki. "it was all fueled, really, by the pandemic," he says, "but we're starting to see the appreciation." "It's a market that's a big, powerful small town," is how Tom Anderson, president of Washington Fine Properties describes it. "D.C.'s become a well-recognized luxury market. ... We've owned our company here for 25 years, the market and the price points have been going up and up." ... "With the exception of that one building on Georgetown's harbor, you really didn't have any luxury waterfront in D.C. proper," says Jason Mendel, an associate broker with Washington Fine Properties. "If you look at any other big metropolitan area, the highest price points are on the water." "I think, if we had a time machine to go 10 years in the future, we'd be saying Anacostia [as the next Navy Yard for investors]," Mendel said. "I think Anacostia is gonna be like how Brooklyn is now to Manhattan." Learn More
