What clients are saying: "She was patient and it was immediately clear that she had an excellent reputation with many of the other Realtors in town from when we saw them at various open houses and home appointments. We were focused on buying a home within the Palisades, Chevy Chase or Capital Hill and it was clear that Jennie knows DC very well - not only the real estate market but also the dynamics of the city and where the home buying value lies within it...As soon as we would make the decision to write an offer, Jennie was on it! I didn't know it was possible for a realtor to draft documents so quickly, especially given our quick timing with everything. She was always responsive via email or over the phone, and we were constantly amazed with how she juggled her career and her family, given that lots of the appointments we had offers we wrote were in the afternoon or evening. She is a superwoman!" Washington, DC
"Jennie McDonnell is highly energetic and totally focused on making the always complex process of buying and selling real estate easier....even enjoyable...for her clients. For us she was both advocate and devil's advocate, making sure we had access to the entire market and knew both the upside and downside of every decision. She has extensive contacts in the industry and was able to arrange finance, home inspection and closing professional with ease. If you want to buy or sell a property in the DC area, go with a native who will make the process painless."McLean, VA
