A FLAWLESS transaction!
We met with Joy in early April to explore maybe, possibly, perhaps selling our house rather than renting it out while we are overseas. We were so impressed by her knowledge, experience and energy that we signed a listing agreement that day, and the house went on the market three weeks later . . . and four days after that, it sold. With eight offers. For a significant sum over asking.
What made this possible was Joy's all-around excellence in pricing, positioning, marketing and negotiating. She knows market dynamics inside and out, she knows how to draw in potential buyers, and she knows how to move potential buyers to action. Everything she discussed in our first meeting came to pass. Additionally, she has a dedicated transaction support adviser who kept on top of all the paperwork needed to close the transaction even though we were 4000 miles away. A potentially complicated situation became totally headache-free.
We could not have hoped for any aspect of the deal to go better and would recommend Joy to anyone looking to close a real estate deal on the most favorable terms possible in the moment.
Melanie & Mohamed E., Sellers
Joy impressed us from the first time we met her. She is extremely professional, very experienced, and kept current as the market changed from when we first met with her to when we listed our house. We followed all of her recommendations and received 14 offers in 3 days and sold 29,000 over list price. Everything was seamless. She responded right away to any questions we had either via phone or email and she personally was present at our open house and at our closing which was important to us. Michael her transaction coordinator made sure every detail was taken care of the entire time and would let us know exactly what we needed to do. I would highly recommend the Joy Deevy team and if I had the chance I would also use this team again. We were more than satisfied.
Jesse & Crystal W., Sellers
Joy Deevy owns the brand of trustworthy! As first time buyers, we were told by very close friends that we must use Joy to help us find a home because she was the absolute best. Joy was their realtor for buying a home in Northern VA and selling it when they moved to TX. They raved about her, and we couldn't believe that a realtor could really make that much of a difference in one's life until we had our experience with Joy. Joy spent well into two years helping us search, bid on a house, search and do more searching for just the perfect home. Just when we thought we were going to have to settle, Joy pulled out all stops to get us a chance at a home on the exact street where we wanted to live. During the entire two year timeframe, Joy made us confident buyers, and she was beyond patient.
We love Joy's humor and her ability to shoot it to you straight. She will tell you exactly what you need to do to get the home that you want. It was a great time house hunting with lots of laughs and absolutely zero tears! We actually miss house hunting with Joy. We can't tell you home many homes we visited, and Joy carefully inspected each one as we went along. We felt like we could take the backseat, and Joy would point us in the right direction. We now not only have a fantastic realtor but a great friend too! Obviously we highly recommend Joy Deevy - you will not find better as she is the BEST!
Andy & Rebekah L., Buyers
Choosing Joy was the best decision we made when we decided to sell our home. Joy sold our home well above asking price in 2 days! To start, her comps were right on target. She brought in stagers that made our house look amazing and cleaners to tidy everything up before open house. We couldn't believe that fifty families showed up and another online site even gave our place a "hot house" designation. We heard great feedback and had offers come in immediately. But the best part about working with Joy and her team is the level of service. Selling was especially complicated for our family because we had already moved to a different city. Joy answered all our questions promptly, had the means for us to digitally sign all our documents, and mailed us the final documents for closing so that we didn't have to be there in person. I would definitely recommend Joy to all my friends who are looking to buy or sell in Arlington. Thank you!
Brian & Erika H., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
Of the agents I interviewed, Joy was the only one who did her homework, studied the comps, and had a projected realistic range for the selling price before meeting with me. She is from the community and is very familiar with the surrounding areas. She listened to me and promptly addressed all my questions and concerns. She also made very specific recommendations about the actions I should take prior to listing the house for sale and what to do to get the house sold. As a result, the house went under contract in 13 days and for the full asking price! The sale went smoothly, all the paper work was done ahead of time, and mailed back. Furthermore, I had moved out of the area by the settlement date and was not required to be in town for the closing. It was far easier than I had expected. I recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who wants a quick sale at a fair price, with a minimum of negotiating with a potential buyer.
Barbara W., Seller
When we searched on-line, we were looking to find an agent who had a record of success in selling high-end luxury homes. We chose The Deevy Group because of the trust and confidence that Joy displayed during our initial interview with various real estate agents. We were most pleased with the team who staged our home and the sound advice Joy provided, in terms of setting the price based on market surveys of past sales in our neighborhood and local market. In this highly competitive market, Joy and her team of agents provided Chris and I with expert advice to get our house marketed and sold with ease. The expert advice she provided on staging and setting the right price were invaluable. While competing homes in our neighborhood lingered on the market unsold, our home sold almost immediately!!! Thanks to Joy, we can move forward with retirement and plans to build a new dream retirement home in coastal N.C.! We were very satisfied and highly recommend Joy, and The Deevy Group, to those who want a full-service agency to market and sell their homes stress-free! We would extremely likely to recommend The Deevy Group to my former neighbors whose home still sits on the market unsold.
Mike E. & Chris B., Sellers
We were looking to buy a specific home when we contacted The Deevy Group. We chose them because of trust and their knowledge of working with older homes. We were most pleased with our experience, especially of Joy's representation of us in the sale. It was an estate sale which can be difficult. She was very knowledgeable. There was no high pressure tactics from her, which we had with previous agents, instead, she gave us our space to make decisions. We were very satisfied and extremely likely to recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. In fact, I have already given out Joy's information to someone who is tentatively looking to buy.
Cynthia S., Buyer
When we contacted The Deevy Group, we were looking to tour a condo that we were interested in. They were highly recommended by a family member. The Deevy Group was very professional. They were always flexible to work with our schedules, very hardworking and determined. We were most pleased with how fast Sarah and Joy would respond to all of our emails and texts! We were very satisfied and just bought a home through them! We are extremely likely to recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their homes
Erin G. & John M., Buyers
Joy and her team were absolute rockstars when it came to our first home purchase. Joy had a tremendous knowledge of our area, the home inventory, and had a fantastic working relationship with other realtors in Alexandria. We would highly recommend Joy to anyone looking to purchase or sell in Northern VA.
Peter & Sarah S., Buyers
Joy Deevy was recommended to us by a family member. We were looking to find a home when we sought their help, and they did more by helping us sell our home then. The experience was amazing! Words cannot express how incredibly easy, each and every step of the process was, for us. They guided us through it all with grace and patience. We were most pleased with their professionalism, efficiency, experience, scope of knowledge, patience, and kindness. We were extremely satisfied and would definitely recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who is looking to buy, and/or sell, and/or rent a home. We will be forwarding all and any contacts that will come down the pipeline to Joy.
Claudia S. & Mo H., Buyers & Sellers
We first reached out to Joy when we were looking to obtain a realistic assessment on selling our home, and get more information on a specific home we were interested in viewing. We knew Joy from the community, and we were very happy that not only does she work in McLean, but that she would represent us personally.
The Deevy Group went over and above representing us in all facets of selling our previous home and throughout the purchase of our new one. When we didn’t have a vendor to handle certain work at the home, they secured one. They were always willing to entertain different options and ideas. Most importantly, they were always professional and amazingly timely.
We will recommend Joy and her team to anyone who is looking to buy a home, sell their home, or even just interested in getting more information about the market.
Rodell O. & Veronica S., Buyers & Sellers
Our Friends shared how successful they were in purchasing their first home with the help of The Deevy Group, and we had to see for ourselves. From start to finish working with them was a dream for us first time home buyers. I can't stop raving about every minute with Anne Ellery, we felt like VIP clients every step of the way! We were most pleased working with her. She was dedicated in helping us find our dream home, and we did! She was always reachable (any time of day, even into the wee hours of putting in our offer) and we feel like she's a part of the family now. We were very satisfied and extremely likely to recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who is looking to buy their first home. We came into the experience knowing very little but had such a great time finding our home, and learned so much through the process.
Emily & Tyler T., Buyers
It was great working with The Deevy Group! We first chose Joy because she and her team encompassed what we were looking for in an agent, especially being first time home buyers. They are a very nice, pleasant, and a personable group with lots of knowledge of the home buying process, the different areas, and attention to detail. We felt comfortable, even from the first phone conversation, that The Deevy Group would get the job done for us, and we knew they would not drop the ball on things and cause our first home buying experience to be a bad one.
We were most pleased when it came to contract negotiations, as well as Joy’s knowledge of the area, home prices, the home buying process, her personality, and her real estate background. The Deevy Group also has relationships with other contacts in area, which is really nice if you’re wanting to do work on a home.
Luis & Jennifer A., Buyers
We couldn't have been happier with The Deevy Group! They went out of their way to help us feel comfortable at each step by answering all our questions, addressing our concerns, and putting us in contact with their wide network of services and referrals. Buying and selling can be quite daunting at times, and it was really great to have them supporting us the whole way through.
We were always super impressed with how attentive they were to our needs and wishes. Whether it be setting up visits for prospective homes or giving us honest opinions for selling our current home they were always dedicated and available to us. We always felt like we were of importance to them.
Anne Ellery was superb in dropping everything at any given time to make sure we got in to see the homes we were interested in, Joy Deevy was excellent in working all the angles with sellers/buyers to make sure we were strong in our negotiations, and Michael Shah was always there to make sure we had our ducks in a row with loan paperwork, administrative items, and questions that we might need to address.
We can't stress how happy and satisfied we were with The Deevy Group. Not to mention, they made the whole process fun!
Mike Z. & Jessie L., Buyers & Sellers
We were looking to sell our home when we contacted The Deevy Group. We chose them because of a friend's recommendation. We were most pleased with our experience because our realtor prepared us for every step of the process. We had a GREAT experience! She's super helpful and friendly, and always on top of things! Overall, we were very satisfied and we are extremely likely to recommend them to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.
Joseph & Alison T., Sellers
Thank you, Joy and Michael! We contacted The Deevy Group when we were exploring to sell our condo within a tight time window and price point. We found Joy through a friend. During our first meeting, Joy was friendly and kind, but what grabbed our attention was her intentionality about the process of selling and attention to details. Joy listend and communicated to us that she understood our goals. She was direct in giving us a list of tasks and deadlines to meet our goal. She did not make "soft calls" or leave things to chance. We followed her formula and sold our home according to our goals. Everything worked out exactly as we described at our first meeting. If we buy or sell in this area in the future, we will be contacting Joy Deevy first. We give The Deevy Group our highest recommendation.
Chris & Hannah B., Sellers
I chose The Deevy Group because my wife and I had prior experience with Joy in buying a home...and that experience went extremely well. We found a home in the area where we were looking at the right price point and The Deevy Group minimized the push-and-pull and overall "administriva" associated with buying home.
The Deevy Group is extremely professional and reliable. This is the second time I've used them--both for the purchase and sale of a house. I really appreciate the fact that they remain engaged at all points of the process and you always feel that they're there to answer questions, give feedback and follow up when needed. Extremely reassuring, extremely professional! Always great to work with.
I was most pleased with the full array of services offered by Joy's group--including Joy's advice on prepping the aesthetics of the interior and exterior of the house and contacts with reliable handymen who helped me prepare the house and grounds for sale. This really streamlined the process. And I was very impressed with how the house was staged for sale. The whole process was extremely professional and top drawer, giving me a high degree of confidence that the house would sell quickly and at or near the asking price. Excellent people, excellent service!
Jake H., Repeat Buyer & Seller
Joy and her team are highly knowledgeable, professional, personable and responsive. Joy was able to anticipate needs and guide us through both sides of the real estate process with ease. Her individualized attention meant the world to us. We’d recommend Joy to anyone on any end of a real estate deal. My husband and I both purchased and sold a home under Joy's guidance and couldn't be more pleased. Her team's customer service and individualized expert advice and attention make an otherwise stressful process a breeze. We knew we were in good hands immediately.
Andrew and Alexandra F., Buyers & Sellers
We highly recommend The Deevy Group to prospective homebuyers. Our realtor, Anne Ellery, provided us with excellent guidance as first-time homebuyers and was extremely responsive throughout every stage of the process. She found us a wonderful home that matched our timeline, budget, and desired features. We could not have asked for a better experience! We strongly recommend Anne and the entire Deevy Group to anyone who is looking for a realtor!
Jill & Chris M., Buyers
We had a great experience working with Anne Ellery and the entire Deevy Group. Anne's patience working with us as first timers was what made the whole process great.
Anne was exactly what we were looking for in an agent in that she took the time to really understand what we wanted, and focused on finding that, rather than trying to quickly sell a home. We never felt pressured to make any decisions, and she was always available to see any properties that looked interesting.
We saw all different types of homes before we finally had an idea of what we were looking for, and Anne made sure we not only found it, but also had a competitive offer to get it without over stepping our comfort zone.
We were also able to reach out to Joy Deevy and the rest of the team at any time, and received immediate, well-informed feedback.
They made sure that the whole process was as smooth as possible from start to finish.
Matt K. & Amy B., Buyers
A new year and a new beginning! A very special thanks to Joy Deevy and The Deevy Group for helping us and making the IMPOSSIBLE, a reality! Simply put, Joy gets the job done. My situation was about as complicated as you can get and Joy and team were absolutely fearless, willing to dive in head first. It's amazing to watch them work. One of the skills that stands out the most about Joy is that she was able to strategically and calmly shepherd us through countless emotional decisions in order to get us into a position that we need and wanted to be in. What an unbelievable ride. We are truly over the moon in our new home and cannot thank you enough for your tireless efforts and expertise. I look forward to working with her again.
Gregory C. Repeat Buyer and Seller
Joy Deevy and her team did a superb job of selling our Alexandria townhouse. She communicated frequently with us and always with clarity, conciseness, respect and honesty, whether it was in person, by phone or by email. She explained each issue of substance to us with the right amount of context and detail so that we could understand the consequences of each decision that needed to be made. Joy and her team were very quick in responding to any questions we had, and it was always done cheerfully. She listened to us and learned about our priorities, our concerns and our sensitivities and she was responsive to them. Her marketing strategy was extremely successful as evidenced by the fact that we were given multiple offers at or above the full asking price during the first weekend she placed the townhouse on the open market and scheduled an open house. In sum, Joy and her team provided a perfect balance of professionalism and personality, and in the process, she thoroughly demonstrated her trustworthiness. We highly recommend Joy Deevy and her team without any reservations!
Henry and Chris G., Sellers
Joy Deevy loves real estate. You can tell that by her enthusiasm every time when speaking with her. You want that attitude when it comes to your real estate agent. Her professionalism, strong knowledge of the local market and attention to detail produced a great result. My home was sold in 2 weeks and I was able to relocate to Florida.
Elliott S., Seller
The purchase of my new condo was my second transaction with Joy, Michael and team. We worked together to sell my home a year ago. Once again, I could not have been more impressed with the level of service and customer care I received. From the moment I called Joy to start the home buying process through closing, she and the team were impossibly thorough. Questions were were answered promptly. They were ready to show houses at any time convenient to me. Simply put, there wasn’t a moment when I didn’t feel like their most important client. Any friends who need homes in the future will hear about the Deevy Group’s total awesomeness.
Matt S., Repeat Buyer & Seller
From our first appointment, The Deevy Group did a stellar job giving us the straight scope of the buying market and each property we viewed. Anne Ellery was truly fun to work with, but most importantly she was professional, candid, and clearly savvy. The Deevy Group is lucky to have her on the team, as I'm sure she knows! Anne is smart and patient, two things I'm sure are essential in an agent partner for any first time buyers like us. We will happily recommend Anne and the Deevy Group!
Jenn S. & Elliott W., Buyers
This is the second home I have purchased and sold with The Deevy Group. From the beginning of the process to the end they make it as easy as possible to sell and buy a home. They understand the market and were able to sell our home in 2 days with multiple offers! Their service and knowledge is second to none.
Terry & Sarah A., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
We love Anne Ellery! From start to end Anne was amazing!!! We moved from Canada and only had limited knowledge of the area and time to search. She was so knowledgeable of the area and helped us to make the BEST choice for our family. She also helped to ease our minds often while dealing with this crazy DC real estate market. Anne knew we were first time home buyers so she took lots of time with us.
Anne was never pushy, understood our crazy lives, and showed interest and enthusiasm for our upcoming move. After a great first introduction online, meeting her in person was an even better experience. She was professional the whole time and relaxing. There were many kinks in our buying process due to using a VA loan, but Anne kept calm (even when I was freaking out), and she worked so well with both parties but always in our best interest. Anne was just a joy to work with!
Josh & Amanda D., Buyers
Our experience with The Deevy Group was excellent and exemplified an ideal transaction in real estate in our terms. Our agent, Rob Bouknight, worked with us around the clock and put our needs and goals first. He clearly cared for our priorities and got us into the house we wanted with incredible speed and efficiency, with a rare mixture of professionalism, savvy, and courteousness. We will recommend your team to anyone who will listen!
Eric and Erin R., Buyers
The Deevy Group made a potentially nerve-wracking experience feel very streamlined. Our realtor, Anne Ellery, responded to our initial inquiry in a very positive manner. We met Joy Deevy soon after and both agents showed great motivation and inspired confidence. We’d recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who wants to know that their desires and concerns are put first and who want to be assured that their realtors are 100% committed to their client’s best interest. The professionalism of the Deevy Group was apparent every step of the way. Thank you all very much!
Pete & Melanie L., Buyers
Joy helped me sell my house and buy another property. She took the time to look at houses with me. She adhered to my requirements and desires and found the best options for me. It was so efficient that I found the home I wanted on the first day I was looking at properties.
When we went to closing, there were small issues with the house I was buying (i.e. the seller thought he was a handy man and was not, bad grout, etc). She was a shark. She helped me get a settlement for stuff that the previous owners had not fixed on the home inspection list. She knew all of my rights and was very good at guiding me to an optimal outcome.
When she sold my home, she was very good at providing me with the data that I needed to establish the price I was going to put it on the market. I felt like she and her team had taken the time to do research and presented it in a very professional way. Joy took the time to hire a staging expert who came in and did a survey of my home to help me figure out the best things to keep/remove to help sell the house quickly. The area in which I was selling was very hot at the time and I received more than my asking price.
I have recommended Joy to others who have used her with much success. Her positive attitude, network and drive make her easy to work with. The team that stands behind her is also amazing. They were constantly contacting me throughout the process. I can't recommend Joy and her team enough!
Kara G., Repeat Buyer & Seller
Joy went above and beyond to sell our home AND we rec'd multiple offers. She knew how to weed out the bad offers and we were able to land the price we wanted! Thanks to her expert advice on staging as well, our house showed just like a model. I really think her and the team are excellent in negotiations and understanding the market. Thanks, Joy!!! We will definitely use you again!
George & Judy S., Buyers & Sellers
Joy went above and beyond my expectations in helping us find the perfect house. She really listened to what we wanted and spend a lot of time with us to find just what we were looking for. She has been working in this industry for a long time, has great connections for everything you need, for example an awesome recommendation for the inspection. I would highly recommend her, and will definitely use her for my next home sale or buy.
Jennifer W., Buyer
When it came time to sell my condo, I had no idea what to expect. I had a short time window for selling the property as I was moving overseas for work. After polling friends who had recently bought/sold homes, I reached out to Joy. Not only did she respond almost immediately, when she showed up for our first meeting she had a folder of research she had already compiled regarding my property and similar properties in the area. That prep work convinced me she was the Realtor for me.
Initially, I was afraid of sinking a considerable amount of money (for me) into staging the condo. She showed me how much of a difference in sale price she had seen between places staged and not, and I took a deep breath and went forward with the staging. I have absolutely no doubt the staging was the primary reason I received an offer above my asking price, and less than 24 hours after we put it on the market!
Joy and Michael were a pleasure to work with from start to finish- helpful and friendly- enthusiastic but also helpful in talking me off the ledge when the closing dragged on longer than expected. Do not think twice about choosing Joy (and following her expert advice!). I will recommend her to everyone I know in the DC area.
Simone L., Seller
Joy stuck with us as we entered and left the housing market multiple times, had to void a contract during an inspection and finally pushed through very difficult negotiations on the complicated contract for the house we finally bought. What you will come to see in working with Joy is that you will never doubt her judgment, prowess, and integrity in making sure that you find the right house for you. You will even find that mortgage brokers, title companies, and other realtors have nothing but the best to say about working with Joy. We have loved working with her, would recommended her to anyone in search of realtor, and can't thank her enough for putting us in our new home.
Jeff and Meghan T., Buyers
Working with Joy and her team put me at ease and made a very stressful transaction stress-free! They were always available, kept me informed every step of the way, and they were very reassuring.
Lori P., Seller
Many thanks to Anne Ellery for helping me buy my first home! Your advice, knowledge, and availability made the process go as smoothly as possible for me. I have already recommended you to a few of my friends. Thank you again for all of your help!
Bethany P., Buyer
We are first time buyers and relatively new to the NOVA area. Joy and her staff were so accommodating and very patient with us and all our questions. Joy is knowledgeable about the structure and physical aspects of houses, and she was always ready with recommendations for home repair/modifications. She always had a smile for us and was always upbeat - even when we were indecisive and difficult, which goes to show that she has great professionalism. We know she is a very busy lady but we always felt like her only clients because she responded to our questions and requests very promptly and worked with our schedule. We are very happy that Joy was our agent!
Gerald F. & Tammy M., Buyers
We used Joy Deevy to buy and sell our house and she is by far one of the most enthusiastic and professional people I have ever met. She went out of her way to help us find a reputable contractor to make improvements to our house in order to get it ready to sell and she was always available to answer the most minor questions. The process for us could not have gone any smoother with the help of Joy Deevy and her staff. She is a true asset to her firm.
Katherine R., Seller
Joy Deevy is the best in the business! She is the epitome of professionalism, but she's always easy-going and fun to work with. I've known her for a long time personally, but this was the first time I officially worked with her to sell a home, and I couldn't be happier with how things worked out. Joy is hard-working, diligent, relentless and demanding. She sets a high standard for her work product and the team working around her, and that showed in the way my property was prepared for sale and the interactions with prospective buyers and their agents. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a successful real estate agent to buy or sell a home. My only regret is that I moved somewhere outside her territory and couldn't ALSO use her on the buying end!
Kathleen O., Seller
Joy Deevy was a lifesaver during our home-buying process. As first-time home buyers, we didn't know anything about the process, but Joy walked us through every step making sure to explain each situation and always giving us options. Her guidance was invaluable, and we truly appreciated her candor, humor, and honesty. Once we identified the home we wanted to purchase, Joy worked around the clock to make sure our offers and other documents were completed as soon as possible, and she always made us feel like we were her number one priority. She worked around our schedules, always kept us informed and helped take the intimidation out of the process. Thanks to the work of Joy and her team, we are now proud owners of our first home, and we couldn't have done it without her!
Christine F., Buyer
Joy Deevy and Anne Ellery were awesome to work with! Very professional, attentive and a pleasure to work with. The communication during the process from Joy and Anne was above expectations! An absolute 10! We will be glad to refer any potential clients to sell or purchase a home in the future.
Crissy & Greg P., Buyers & Sellers
Joy Deevy got us two offers in 4 days resulting in a sale above the asking price! We'd recommend Joy to anyone who wants to get their home sold! Joy and her team are receptive to questions, attentive to every detail, and highly effective in marketing and negotiating! If not for moving out of the area, we would certainly use Joy again for the purchase of our next home.
Stephanie and Stuart E., Sellers
We chose to work with Joy because she is "the real deal." Joy knows her stuff! More importantly, Joy knows how to communicate the details that we need to know as both sellers and buyers.
Joy made the sale of our condo EASY. She came in and arranged for the staging and pre-marketing. We went on the market on a Thursday night and had three offers at or above asking price within days.
As a direct result of working with Joy, we found that buying a house in North Arlington in this housing market is not easy, but having Joy there to help made it much less painful. Joy was key in creatively negotiating on our behalf. She was also key in advising when it was time to walk away from certain situations. In the end, we were able to get the house of our dreams and at a price better than we thought we would!
Laura and Lou L., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
I worked with Joy Deevy as both a buyer and seller. Her service and knowledge of the market is second to none. She goes above and beyond to make the buying and selling process as easy as possible. Joy sold my home in four days!
Sarah S., Repeat Buyer & Seller
Pleasant. Thorough. To the point. Easy to communicate with. Knowledgeable of the market. On top of all the detail, and there were a lot of details to manage. Willingness to listen versus lecture. Professional. Joy and Michael were always available and able to respond promptly. A pleasure to work with through this process.
John E., Seller
For years now, I had heard friends and acquaintances rave about working with Joy on buying or selling their home. And, having been friends with Joy for many years, I knew that she was not only a great Realtor, but also a top-notch person.
But even while knowing all that going in, I was still blown away by the care, insight and quality of service that Joy, Michael and the rest of the team provided me during the sale of my house. Every last detail (from staging my home for sale to signing the documents at closing) was covered. Every question I had was answered immediately. And when I admittedly freaked out a little bit at the prospect of leaving my home of 13 years, Joy was a thoughtful listener who talked me off the ledge and provided sound advice.
While the level of professionalism that Joy and her team exhibited was extraordinary, it was how much they cared about making me comfortable throughout every step of the process that will stick with me for a long time. I couldn't be more thrilled with how everything went from start to finish.
Rest assured, I will recommend Joy and her team to anyone in the DC area who even hints at a possible move!
Matt S., Seller
Our experience with The Deevy Group was far above our expectations. Looking back on the entire process we definitely believe Joy was the right choice to market our home. The team was pleasant, well organized, incredibly knowledgeable, had a number of resources to turn to and no one could ask for better communication. It was very difficult for us to get the house ready to be put on the market and Joy empathized and demonstrated the great patients in making this transition.
It was unbelievable the amount of effort she and her team put forth during the process, but the most memorable was when the home inspection came in while we were on vacation. They researched every contractor and obtained the best quote possible in order to rectify the issues from the home inspection.
It was a pleasure to work with The Deevy Group and we are very appreciative of all their hard work to sell our home.
Jeanne & Paul P., Sellers
The bottom line of the message below is that we have been 100% satisfied with the quality and level of service we received from our realtor Joy Deevy. Having both purchased, and now sold a home with her, our expectations were never met, only exceeded! As sure as the azaleas continue their glorious bloom up and down the streets of our area, more and more for sale signs are popping up, and no doubt many of us notice that most of those signs are staying up seemingly longer and longer. As we were making preparations to relocate to Texas our concerns increased as the number of homes that stayed on the market for long periods increased. But, we were set on moving, and so we had to pull the trigger and put our home on the market.
In 2003 when we started looking for a home in this area we worked with Joy Satterfield out of the Coldwell office in Old Town. In truth, we didn't know Joy all that well, and the agency she worked for, Coldwell Banker, would certainly not have been classified as a Beverley Hills expert in the traditional real estate sense. Still, she worked with us, identified the perfect house that would become our home, and helped seal and close the deal. All pretty standard fare for a real estate transaction we think. What was unique about our experience is that Joy used her experience, substantial attention to detail, and incredible organizational skills to navigate the details in what very easily could've become an unpleasant sale and closing experience. In truth, at the time it was sellers market, and Joy very easily could've given us a whole lot less than 100% - we wanted the house, were new to the process, and probably would've been content and none the wiser. But, she didn't, and as a result she earned our trust, our friendship, and the business of other dear friends of ours who have used Joy for both buying and selling homes.
Fast forward to 2008, and some things have changed. We are now a family of 6, Joy Satterfield is now Joy Deevy - having married a wonderful guy - and the real estate market is not quite as sanguine as it was 5 years ago. But 1 thing has not changed, and that is the quality and level of service and expertise our realtor provided us before, during, and in the final stages of the sale. Joy is perfectly attuned to every aspect of the current real estate market, and was knowledgeable about every single detail that would impact the preparation, marketing, and sale of our house. We followed her detailed advice to the letter and could not be happier with the end result: a sold house in 12 days at the price we wanted. If you're in the market for a real estate agent, or if your contract with your current agent is up, we'd strongly encourage you to take a look at Joy Deevy.
Ben & Ashley C., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Joy and her team! They were extremely professional, respectful and generous with their advice. I constantly felt they were knowledgeable of the situation and would make sure to put my interests first. 10!!! Joy and Michael were an absolute pleasure to work with. Joy was always prompt, punctual and valued my time. Both Joy and Michael were extremely detail oriented and continued to support, even after settlement.
Christophe D., Buyer
We chose Joy to sell our home in Old Town because she received a glowing recommendation from another family. Joy went above and beyond the call of duty! Without her, things would not have gone as smoothly as they did. We recommend Joy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and we will definitely be using her again!
Kristina & Kyle I., Sellers
Being first time home-buyers, we didn't know what to expect, but Joy and Michael made the whole process stress-free. Buying a home in a competitive market worried us, but Joy was able to show us homes within a day of going on the market. She provided us with sound advice, reflected strong negotiation skills, and the experience and knowledge to get us the house we wanted at the price we wanted. Michael kept us up-to-date on important information and responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had. There was little work for us to do, as Joy and Michael scheduled all inspections for us. We just showed up at closing to sign. Joy and Michael were a pleasure to work with and will be highly recommended to our family and friends.
Dan & Roberta B., Buyers
We have worked with Joy Deevy and her team to both buy and sell our first home. Her expertise, energy, and advice helped us prepare our house for sale and with great success! We received multiple offers and sold the house in 4 days.... and during the middle of the winter! We consider Joy not only our realtor but also our friend. If you are looking for a house in Old Town/Del Ray/Rosemont, Joy Deevy is the woman to work with! We will definitely work with her in the future.
John and Megan G., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
I called The Deevy Group when I was looking to purchase a home in the Washington DC area. Their professionalism and dedication was vastly different from the other realtors I'd been referred to. The gap in knowledge was incredible, but the customer service difference really swayed my decision!
I was really pleased with the hands-on nature of the team and the accessibility of my realtor, Rob Bouknight. With my commitment to the Air Force, I had limited ability to travel to the DC area to house-hunt early. With Rob's help, the different neighborhoods on the DC map grew less cloudy with each conversation and, as a result, the units we visited were exactly what I was looking for.
There is nothing I would have asked for that wasn't accomplished. Honestly, the fact that Rob and the team could anticipate my needs and accomplish them before I asked is an incredible indication of the knowledge and skill level of this group.
I think it bears noting that as a military member my time is often not my own. The fact that Rob made himself so easy to work with and worked around my schedule is a great representation of the qualities I would recommend to anyone looking for a home in the area. You all moved mountains while I was out of the country in order to get this done for me and that cannot be overstated.
Marcus T., Buyer
Your team was outstanding! We really appreciated your quick response to questions and concerns we had along the way! We also appreciated your honesty about our selling and purchase options and your confidence. Thank you so much!
Rob & Gia P., Buyers & Sellers
I couldn't have been happier with the way the sale went! Joy did a great job of guiding us through the process to actually get it on the market. Once it was on the market I couldn't believe the results - a contract in 24 hours and closing in three weeks. I didn't even know real estate could move that fast! A funny story - when Joy said we could anticipate closing by the end of June I told Anthony I think she meant July, and even that was a stretch and would require a contract in the first few weeks. Much to my amazement and Joy's expertise, I couldn't believe the whole process happened in under three weeks. I couldn't have asked for more, and Joy and Michael were incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. Thanks so much to you both!
Anthony and Janell P., Repeat Buyers and Sellers
The Deevy Group is amazing and we loved working with Anne Ellery! She cared so much that I felt like I was out house hunting with a sister or family member. She pointed out every issue, good and bad. It never felt like she was looking to make a sale and move on. Anne is the utmost professional and a really good person. I cannot recommend her enough. We now know that a good deal is out there and with the right Realtor, you can find it. Thanks Anne!
Jessica S., Buyer
I’ve never bought or sold a home before, but as Trustee I was responsible for selling a home that was part of my relative’s Trust. Joy came highly recommended from a good friend, and I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of the business. Initially I felt a little overwhelmed, but Joy immediately put me at ease and made the process so much less stressful than I thought it was going to be. She and her team were responsive and helpful every step of the way. They worked around my schedule and took care of certain things for me, so I wouldn't have to take time off from work. There were multiple issues with the house and many decisions that needed to be made, and Joy's guidance in these matters was extremely helpful and appreciated. The house sold in just a few days and well above asking price, so I believe her advice was spot-on. Her easy-going and supportive manner through the entire process made her such a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and will definitely use her again when I’m ready to buy my own home.
Karen W., Seller
Joy understood the housing market in Old Town very well. Despite a tough market and a lot of direct competition, Joy sold our house in less than two months. We really appreciated that Joy was realistic with regards to pricing our home, and her ability to stay calm and focused. We'd recommend Joy to anyone committed to selling their home in Old Town.
Kate and Todd W., Sellers
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Joy and her team! At each step of the home-buying process we felt very guided, informed and supported. Their attention to all the major and minor details of both our sale and purchase was impeccable. We would absolutely recommend Joy and her team to others. You all did a great job for us and we are truly appreciative.
Travis and Polly R., Buyers & Sellers
Joy Deevy and her team, Anne Ellery, and Michael Shah came highly recommended to us by a friend. When we started our search, Anne Ellery spent lots of time helping us find the area where we wanted to live. When we came across the house we knew we wanted, things had to move fast. The home had just received another offer and we had to get everything in place quickly if we were going to have a chance to buy this home. Every member of the team helped and without their skill, experience and help, I have no doubt that we would not have been able to do it. Our offer was accepted and we love our new home. I would recommend them to anyone! There is a lot more we could say about how great they are, but we will keep it brief. Simply put, you could not be in better hands for your home buying or selling experience.
Paul & Jennifer S., Buyers
The one thing we appreciated the most was her honest assessment of every property we previewed. Joy did not push us into any old sale! With Joy's honest opinion, flexibility, and knowledge of the real estate market, home buying was a piece of cake.
Megan & John G., Buyers
Joy and her team were fantastic throughout every step of my first home purchase. All of my questions were answered promptly and completely. Joy's expert negotiating helped me close under the best possible terms. I wouldn't think to use any other Realtor for future real estate transactions.
When it came time to putting our home on the market, the first thing we did was call Joy. Having worked with Joy in the past, we knew our home would be in good hands. Thanks to Joy's expertise and guidance in home staging and price setting, we received a contract above asking price within 24 hours of listing our home and took it off the market before the scheduled open house! We couldn't have been happier!
Joy's patience throughout the whole process was greatly appreciated. At one time, we had a contract on a home, but negotiations with a very difficult seller were not going well and with Joy's counsel we had the confidence to walk away. Eventually we found our home and Joy helped us make the right offer. There were a lot of timing hurdles to deal with and Joy managed all of them with such professionalism it took the stress away. Thanks to Joy and her assistant, Michael, we had a smooth closing on both sides of the deal.
The bottom line is, whether you're looking to buy or sell, choosing Joy and her team to help you will be your best decision!
Michael & Staci G., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
We worked with Joy in 2006 when purchasing our first new home, and she was incredibly helpful in negotiating with the seller's realtor regarding agreed improvements that were not completed. In 2013 we again worked with Joy (and her team) to both purchase our new home and sell our old one. Joy was invaluable, and the comprehensive buyers packet she arranged for us, including complete information on our financial situation, allowed us to beat several competing bids despite not being the highest offer. Again, when selling she arranged for a beautiful showing of the house and we received multiple offers within a few days. I couldn't recommend her and her great team more.
Marc & Jennifer P., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
We had a great experience with Joy Deevy! They gave us a sense of excitement and confidence when we were deciding who to select to represent us in our home buying experience. They were very knowledgeable and available and helped us along the way in all aspects of the home buying decision from the financial/business end to the personal fit and decision factor that encompasses buying a home. Jeff and I would love to be references for future home buyers considering working with Joy. Thank you so much for all the help in finding us our new home! We love it!
Jeff & Jane R., Buyers
Joy Deevy and her team helped us sell our home quickly. Joy made constructive suggestions regarding how best to prepare our home for the current market. Once our home was on the market, she continued to think outside of the box to develop new marketing strategies. Joy and her team were always available to confer and answer questions.
David & Julia C., Sellers
As first time home buyers, Joy's patience and understanding made us feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. Her tireless effort and selfless drive toward meeting our personal needs resulted in an extremely positive experience and ultimately our dream home!
Matt & Penny M., Buyers
Joy was fantastic. I was completely overwhelmed, this being our first home purchase. Joy was always there to "talk me off the ledge" so to speak. She explained things clearly, and was always very accessible. We closed a week ago, and she's still working with us to get some remaining issues resolved. In a year, I am completely confident that if I have a question, she will still be there to help. She was much more than our Realtor, she was a dedicated partner through this whole process. Thanks for everything!
Michael & Jennifer P., Buyers
Joy provided us with excellent professional recommendations every step along the way in the sale of our home. This included preparing our home for showing and pricing it competitively. Joy recommended a professional "home staging expert" who utilized 95% of items we already had and just did some minor re-arrangement. The photos of our home were excellent, showed that it was well kept and highlighted our unique features. This led to an offer less than 4 days of placing it on the Market. It was under contract within of week of placement on the market at the list price. Given the market, this is amazing.
Joy and her assistant were with us every step of the way through settlement. This included explaining the process for selling our home, being available to answer questions as they arose, and making professional recommendations throughout the process. Joy was wonderful to work with and exceeded our expectations!
Judy & Dave G., Sellers
As first time home buyers, we couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with. From the first time meeting with Joy, through the time of our closing, we always felt we could trust the advice and guidance Joy was giving us. Joy and her colleagues were always quick to provide answers to questions we had and persistent in getting us what we wanted from the seller. While working with Joy we felt as if we were working with a long time friend and will miss seeing her from week to week. We look forward to working with Joy again in the future, and will definitely recommend her to our friends and family.
Bill & Kelly R., Buyers
What better endorsement for a real estate broker than for a client to say: "I trust this woman with my life.... literally." Well, not literally, but you get my drift. As she guided me through the buying process, I had no doubts that all of her direction and advice was intelligent, well thought out, and in my best interest. I would follow Joy into battle if she gave me the order.
Richard D., Buyer
We worked with Joy previously and were 100% satisfied. So we called Joy again when it was time to sell both our current home (which Joy helped us find!) and purchase a new one. When Joy is involved, there is nothing to worry about. She goes over all contracts and offers with a fine-tooth comb and always had our best interest at heart. In addition, her personality made it easy for us to be upfront and honest. She's an amazing agent, and we feel lucky to have her. She made a very stressful process smooth. We've recommended her in the past and will continue to do so!
Josh & Christine F., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
Joy's knowledge of the local real estate market, her ability to understand the page after page documents, and her guidance in advising us on pricing the house right, paid off with a speedy sale of less than a week on the market. If anyone ever asks if we know a great realtor, Joy's name will be the only one that comes to mind.
Robert, Bob & Mattie D., Sellers
We could not have asked for a better realtor than Joy. She is full of valuable knowledge, helpfulness, savvy advice, and real support. Joy guided us through the process of buying our first home with grace and never pushed us to make a decision we were not comfortable with. We knew that Joy had our best interests in mind throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend Joy and her team to anyone.
Alex & Sash P., Buyers
I decided to sell my house in July 08, right in the middle of the worst housing market in years. What I thought was going to end up being a bad decision on my part turned out to be a great decision because I hired Joy to be my agent. She sold my house in four weeks and she got me my asking price. Joy's advice about how to show the house, how to price the house and when to open and advertise the house was dead on. She followed up immediately as agents and buyers came to see the house and she constantly kept me informed. I've told all my friends and anyone else who would listen what a great job Joy did representing me. I'd recommend her to anyone. If you're looking to sell your house quickly and get your asking price, look no further then Joy Deevy.
Carol B., Seller
When we called Joy we were looking to put my mother's home on the rental/sale market. Although Joy normally handles only homes for sale, she quickly and graciously agreed to meet us at the home and advise us what would be necessary to make it competitive in today's market, everything from renovations and appliance upgrades, to paint colors. When we received a very attractive offer to buy the house, contingent on the buyers selling their existing home, Joy's instincts again came into play when she reviewed their home and determined that it was overpriced. On her recommendation, the sellers lowered the price and received an offer almost immediately, clearing the way to finalize our transaction and for them to 'move up.'
We were also impressed at the accuracy and timeliness of the extensive paperwork -- it was either transmitted to us electronically or Joy personally brought it to me at my shop. She fulfilled our expectations that she could be relied upon to be efficient and completely professional. Joy is a highly effective, ethical and enthusiastic real estate professional. We expected no less and will use her again should we have need in the future. Her support staff was also stellar.
Tim B., Seller
Joy Deevy and her team made the difference for me. You see, I began the process without talking to Joy first. That's the biggest mistake I made in regards to the entire transaction. My particular deal got choppy due to outside forces (and me not calling her sooner), yet all along, Joy provided a calm, experienced voice of reason. She and her team act with prompt, thorough professionalism. If you're looking to buy or sell, start with Joy, finish with Joy - period. She knows what she's doing, and she and her team get the deal done for you.
Tellis S., Buyer
I highly recommend Joy Deevy and her team for the sale or purchase of your next home. I listed my house with Joy in December 2011. Joy and her team provided valuable guidance during every stage of the home selling process. Even though it was the slowest time of the year to sell, I had two competing offers and sold my house for more than my asking price!
Nachelle W., Seller
Working with Joy and Michael is like having an entire team of people behind you. I travel a lot for business, and whatever needed to be done -- signing papers, discussing offers, arranging repairs, scheduling inspections, recommending attorneys -- they were always there for me, always with a "don't worry about; we can do that for you!", and most important to me, always able to accommodate my busy personal life. It was a great comfort to know I was in such good hands. Moving is stressful and selling your home is a difficult thing to absorb. Joy was there all the time, giving me great advice about staging the home and making sure it showed well. She was always considerate of my needs and my personal goals, balancing that with market trends, comps, and positioning. I always felt that she was looking out for me - first, and foremost. This is one great team to work with -- it made a difficult, complicated and stressful time very manageable; and most important of all -- my home sold within the time period that Joy had predicted.
Irene H., Seller
When I called Joy, I was looking for an expert in the Old Town property market and experience with corporate relocations. I chose Joy because it was clear she is an expert in the Old Town Alexandria market, plus we had a very positive experience working with her in the past. What I liked best about working with Joy and her team was that she understood our needs and wants, which made our home search very efficient and enjoyable.
Pat & Rebecca F., Repeat Buyers
Excellent job! Rob Bouknight was very patient in showing us properties and in answering our questions. Rob is a really organized person, always on time, and we received excellent service from him.
Ali A., Buyer
What a pleasure it was to work with Joy! She was thoroughly professional. She was very responsive to any issues that came up, documents were on time, she made sure repairs were completed and also anticipated any problems at settlement. This made for a very smooth and congenial closing for my nervous first time buyers. I look forward to working with Joy again should the opportunity present itself.
Jill H., Cooperating Realtor
We found the members of The Deevy Group, most notably Anne Ellery, extremely professional and thorough, yet warm and totally engaged in helping us. Following their advice, we had a contract on our condo within one week. We then entered the buying process with only vague, abstract ideas of what and where we wanted to live, and they found us the perfect place in a convenient area we didn't know existed. We highly recommend them!
Jay & Nancy S., Buyers & Sellers
Joy helped me buy my condo 10 years ago and I had a great experience with her! We called Joy again to help us sell our condo in Arlington and buy a single family home. Joy and her team are extremely responsive, on top of things, detailed oriented, and clear and concise in their communication. They gave us a great proactive list of things we needed to do when moving into the new house - things we probably would have not thought of, and made life so much easier on move in. We'd recommend the team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the DC metro area. They're awesome and made buying a house fun!
Jenna F., Repeat Buyer and Seller
Joy always had my best interests in mind. I can't say enough about how hard she works for her clients. She made my transition to Hawaii an enjoyable experience.
Lori P., Seller
You have all been great to work with and we so appreciate your timely attention to every singly step getting this to the settlement table! It is wonderful to work with professionals who take their business very seriously!
Linda W., Cooperating Realtor
Working with Joy is an absolute pleasure. From our first conversation, we knew we were in good hands in a very difficult market. We are a military family and living 2,000 miles away, we had to rely on Joy to guide us through this whole process. She was professional, patient and so personable! Her assistant, Michael, was amazing as well. I would recommend Joy and her team to all my family and friends. She is truly the best at what she does! I will certainly recommend The Deevy Group to anyone that I come across looking for a home in this area.
Brian & Lisa M., Buyers
Our experience with The Deevy Group was amazing! We loved that we could buy and sell with one team and it made it seem like one seamless transaction. We always knew what was going on, and were always well informed. Joy was always available via text, email, and phone. It made the process so much easier knowing we could reach her or her team at any time. We were able to cover a large area and found our perfect forever home! They were very responsive with all our questions or concerns and we had a wonderful experience. Joy and her team were amazing and we will recommend them to our friends and family! Our next move will be to our retirement home. See you in 30 years!
Stephanie & Adam G., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
Joy did an excellent job. Not to sound cliché, but she was a joy to work with. Joy sold my fiancé’s house in less than 5 days and got us into a home within a month. I have recommended her to two other friends.
Steve M., Buyer
We only need one word to describe our experience with The Deevy Group: fantastic! Many of our coworkers told horror stories about their experiences home buying in the DC Metro Area, but The Deevy Group provided us an efficient, pressure-free one stop shop for the entire process. We could not be happier! Joy was simply amazing!
Zac & Jen H., Buyers
Joy is a smart and hard worker. Her team and her resources got us a great deal in a great neighborhood. We did what Joy and her team told us to do to prepare and stage our 60 year old house, in a down market, and we landed a buyer in less than a week at close to full price. Joy's confidence and her relationships with mortgage lenders, home repair people and other resources helped us get our deal together and stay on track, while negotiating and renegotiating a great price on the bank owned property we purchased. In this market, we were very wary of "negative equity" risk and needed all the assurance we could get.
Mark & Erin C. Buyers & Sellers
I was referred to Joy Deevy to sell my condominium in Arlington. First phone call with Joy, she responded immediately then followed by more phone calls advising me of what needs to be done to get my condominium be competitive with the present market. We held one open house and on the same day we received an offer and in no time the house was sold. I would recommend Joy to anyone interested in selling their home. Joy and her assistant were highly efficient, professional, and experienced in selling real estate.
Grace F., Seller
Joy Deevy came highly recommended by a neighbor and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. After meeting Joy and getting her expert advice, we prepared our townhouse for the Alexandria market by packing up some personal items, putting a few things in storage, and making the entrance inviting. Because of Joy, our house looked amazing and it completely paid off. We received a great offer after only a week on the market. With our busy schedules and a very short timeline to relocate, it was essential that every step in the process went smoothly. Thanks to Joy Deevy and her team it was a seamless process. Joy is an exceptional Realtor!
Mark & Eileen S., Sellers
Joy Deevy's expertise in all facets of the home buying and selling process proved invaluable. On both sides of the deal -- selling our old home and buying a new one -- Joy's advice saved us thousands of dollars through shrewd negotiations and spot-on instincts for what the market would bear. She and her team walked us through all elements of the home selling and buying process, and we always felt that she was a phone call away when questions came up. When settlement day arrived, the closing was easily completed because Joy had prepared us so well. Joy's advice, guidance, attention to detail, professionalism and friendliness made a potentially stressful life event almost painless. Not that we're looking to move again soon, but if we did, Joy would certainly be our first call!
Marc S. & Katie M., Buyers & Sellers
We called Joy because of her professionalism, experience, enthusiasm and a proven track record of selling homes, when we were looking to sell our condo that had been on the market for quite some time. Joy was extremely easy to work with and took care of all the little details, even down to the staging of the home. I never had to worry and knew my interests were being taken care of first. We were really pleased that Joy had our home sold in such a quick time, especially during a typically slow winter season!
Kim B., Seller
Joy and her team really delivered and worked tirelessly to sell our home and get us into our new home! Their unwavering commitment to get the job done, and hard work made our move possible in a challenging environment. We'd recommend The Deevy Group to any who looking to buy and sell!
Martin & Laura B., Buyers & Sellers
The Deevy Group is a wonderful team! Joy, Anne, and Michael were an absolute pleasure to work with. I chose them because they were very professional and their website made searches easy. I would recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who wants to buy or sell. Wonderful team!
Tonia R., Buyer
If I were looking for a real estate agent in Northern Virginia, or recommending one to a buyer or seller, I would have you at the top of my list. I have bought and sold several times in a variety of locations as I have moved around in my career and I must say that this has been the best experience I have had, and you are not even working for me! Even though you have been super responsive to my requests/questions and actively keep me informed on progress of our transaction, having a dedicated person in the office also helps tremendously -- I haven't experienced that before, and it is a terrific model of superior service. As to Michael, I think she has picked up the phone and answered nearly every time I have called (perhaps I got her voice mail once). That is pretty remarkable. You two are a fabulous team that I would highly recommend to anyone!
Frank M., For Sale By Owner
Joy & her team are a well-oiled machine. If you want your house sold fast and without a hitch, The Deevy Group will get it done for you. My condominium was listed for less than a week (5 days) before it was under contract, and closing went through without a hitch. Joy and her team know how to price, show, and sell your property with as little hassle as possible.
I am working with the Joy Deevy buying team as well - also very highly recommended. The team is very responsive & knowledgeable. If you are looking to buy a home or sell your own property, I highly recommend calling Joy & her team.
Benjamin V. Buyer & Seller
Joy, Anne and Michael have made "home sweet home" even sweeter. From our first meeting to the closing of our new house, we could not be more pleased with our experience working with The Deevy Group. Both transactions were stress-free and seamless - Joy and Anne made the experience pleasant and professional, and Michael kept us on track and focused throughout, making our lives easier! We highly recommend Joy and her team to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.
Charles & Anna L., Buyers & Sellers
I could not have been luckier to have Joy Deevy recommended to me by a friend when I wanted to buy a house 4 years ago. The process could not have gone smoother and I got the house for a fantastic price! Fast forward 4 years and its time to sell the house and move for work. Joy was the first person I called. Within a week, the house was staged, listed and we had an offer! Everything went smoothly all the way through closing, and I could not be happier with the outcome! I would recommend Joy to everyone!
Paul G., Repeat Buyer & Seller
Joy Deevy works for us........... Her attention to detail, dedicated commitment to following-up and through, and her complete knowledge of the real estate process and industry has brought us back to her time and time again!
Robert & Jennifer K., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
We are so thankful for Joy's assistance during the search for our first home. Due to our busy schedules and lengthy "must-have" lists for our first home, it took us longer than normal to find our house. Joy was extremely patient throughout the process. We never felt rushed and she was very accommodating to our schedule and needs. Once we found our home, she worked around the clock to complete the paperwork, negotiations, inspection, etc. She was readily available and ensured a seamless settlement. It was comforting to know that throughout the transaction we had Joy by our side to look out for us and to provide excellent guidance and advice. She is a true professional and expert in the field. Joy was fun, friendly, intelligent and insightful and we look forward to working with her again.
Will & Catherine D., Buyers
Joy and her team are simply the best partners we could have to assist us with buying and selling real estate. Their knowledge of the neighborhoods, properties, buying and selling processes, and all the other aspects of real estate transactions are second to none.
Joy has a proven track record with us and others we have referred to her. When Joy was initially contacted 8 years ago to help Eric purchase his first home, she thoroughly prepared him for the buying process, tirelessly worked to locate properties that met his needs, coordinate showings, negotiated the purchase of the condo, and provided in-depth insights to prepare him for settlement. When it came time to sell the property, Joy was able to quickly arrange staging and sold the property for the list price within 2 weeks during a difficult economic period.
We are very pleased with Joy's ability to also assist us in the sale of Lacey's condo. In this case, Joy went above and beyond in a number of ways. First, she assisted with strategies to help us inform and work with our tenant during the sales process. Joy also provided invaluable recommendations for increasing the property's value, and her in-depth research helped us arrive at an aggressive, but realistic, sales price. When there were weather-related issues with the property, Joy eased our burden by going directly to the property and working directly with several contractors to alleviate the issues.
Joy's assistant Michael should also be acknowledged for her efforts. During both the buying and selling processes she always maintained a positive, professional, and understanding attitude, even when dealing with the many unglamorous administrative actions that needed to be completed. She has always been very responsive to questions and has a remarkable understanding of the many intricate details involved with real estate transactions.
We'd recommend Joy and her team to anyone who is buying or selling a property. Joy and her team are easy to work with, professional, and partners throughout the whole process. There's no one else we would ever partner with, it's that simple.
Eric and Lacey L., Repeat Buyers and Sellers
Joy and her team were invaluable in getting what seemed like an impossible deal done! Joy's industry expertise, willingness to go beyond the call of duty, and ability to develop creative deals really separates her from the rest. In addition to Joy's team, Joy has an extensive network and strong relationships with related professionals in the industry that will meet whatever buying/selling need you have. I cannot count the number of times I said to myself "Thank goodness for Joy".
Gregory C., Buyer
We chose Joy because of her energy, her attention to detail, her sales record, and her stellar testimonials. Joy helped us to identify our priorities in a new home, advocated our interests during our home purchase, constantly communicated, and made the process as painless as possible! As a direct result of working with Joy, we were able to sell our house in record time, and we got a great deal on both our home sale and home purchase. We recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
John & Sarah D., Buyers & Sellers
The Deevy Group has been wonderful and you ladies sure do deliver! Thanks for making our transition as smooth as possible and know that you will be getting referral business from us. You ladies ROCK!
Ben & Adrianne F., Buyers & Sellers
Our experience with Joy Deevy and her staff could not have been better! When we called to ask her to list the property, she showed up right away and provided valuable insights about the area as well as tips on staging the property. The sales information (website, brochures, etc) that she and her team put together was quickly and professionally assembled, and within a few days, the property was listed. To our amazement, the property was shown 15 times in a week, and each time, we were able to view feedback from the potential buyers. We were thrilled when a sales contract was written and ratified after only 10 days on the market! What a relief in this economy. The organization and handling of the closing was equally efficient. Before we could even think of the items that need to be assembled and attended to, Joy and her staff had already taken care of them. This was the most satisfying property transfer we have ever experienced. We will most certainly look forward to working with Joy again in the future.

My experience was great! Joy was knowledgeable, professional, energetic, and focused. She made sure she understood our needs and desires, and immediately translated that into the best homes that fit our needs.
John P., Buyer
Working with Joy was an absolute pleasure -- she took the time to understand my family's needs and preferences, provided consistently insightful advice, and was always very patient and proactive on our behalf. In addition, Joy was on top of the myriad details involved in both selling and buying a home, and she really helped us get the best deal possible.
David & Annaliisa T., Buyers & Sellers
Joy is a wonderful agent and I had a great experience selling my first home. I had full confidence in Joy and her team. After having a negative experience with a different agent at a different real estate company, Joy was able to help me establish confidence again and helped me get my condo sold.
From the beginning of the selling process Joy gave me realistic expectations and offered her expert advice before I made a decision. I look forward to working with Joy again in the future and have started to recommend her to my friends and family. Thanks again Joy! See you in a few years!
Stephanie M., Seller
We were completely thrilled with the home buying and selling services provided by Joy Deevy and her team. We've purchased two homes now with Joy's help. Joy is incredibly talented, smart, savvy, attentive, professional, knowledgeable, and all around, just lots of fun to work with. She did everything in her power to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, which was a complete relief. We always knew we were in good hands with Joy and her skillful team. We were sad when the whole process was over, because it meant that we didn't get to hear from Joy every day! We would definitely recommend Joy to anyone looking for a realtor in the DC area.
Allyson and Steve G., Buyers and Sellers
A friend of mine recommended Joy to me. I called Joy on a Saturday, met her on a Sunday, and had a proposal for the condo I wanted within one-week - not because Joy was pushy, but because she had the wonderful ability to listen to my needs and find places that fit my needs. Before we ever stepped into a home, she asked pertinent questions to get a feel for what I was looking for. Then she asked impactful ones after each home visit, allowing me the opportunity to visualize whether I could see myself living in each environment. From beginning to end, Joy was holding my hand to make sure I understood the process and was getting the information I needed to ensure I was making a good decision. She truly was a pleasure to work with and, hands down, I plan to use her again the next time I purchase a home!
Jodi G., Buyer
Joy made the whole process very smooth! We really appreciated how thorough and proactive she was. We were given great strategies, constant updates, and she put more effort into our sale than any other realtor would. That's dedication. And given the market situation, our home sold fast!
Ron & Trish A., Sellers
My wife and I were relocated out of the DC area and began the process of selling a house for the first time. We were given the opportunity, through our relocation company, to choose among a number of realtors. When we first met Joy, she was extremely friendly and professional. She took the time to walk us through the entire process in listing and selling our home. Her presentation was structured, and detailed everything she would do to get our home sold as quickly as possible and for the best price.
Throughout the process, Joy and her team communicated at a high level, taking swift action to handle any issues that arose. They worked directly with multiple parties involved in selling our home, including our relocation provider and homeowner's association, making our job looking for another property very easy.
If you are looking to buy or sell a home, there is no better person to work with than Joy Deevy. Her credentials are but a small snapshot of her overall value as a real estate agent. Ultimately, my wife and I chose to work with Joy and her team because of her knowledge of the local real estate market, her years of success in managing home sales transactions, and most importantly, her consistently upbeat attitude and her unwavering commitment to our satisfaction.
My wife and I are thrilled of our decision to work with Joy, and would emphatically recommend her to our friends and family.
Paul & Sarah V., Sellers
Joy is trustworthy, has great real estate advice and knows this region's market inside and out. All home buyers should definitely listen to Joy's savvy advice and trust that she will do what it takes to find exactly what you are looking for.
Becca & Chris L., Buyers
We had a great experience! Joy and her team bent over backwards every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone!
Greg and Libby S., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
It was such a pleasure to work with Joy and her team! They were always professional and very helpful. We appreciated Joy's suggestions on how to best market our home using a number of various websites. She listened to our ideas, answered our questions, and reassured us through each and every step of the process. Everything went so smoothly! This was the easiest sale of a house that we have ever experienced. Once Joy put our house on the market, we received multiple offers within the first two days!
Mark & Jan T. Sellers
I can't tell you how happy I am for this referral. Joy is professional, knowledgeable, and in I can't tell you how happy I am for this referral. Joy is professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly easy to work with. We discussed every aspect of the process, as a team. We made wise decisions together, and as a result, I had a contract on my condo the day after it went into the MLS! With the real estate market in a slump, but slowly improving - my friends, family, associates could not believe that my home sold in 1 day. And neither could I. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend that you consider utilizing the services of Joy Deevy. You won't be disappointed.
We chose The Deevy Group because they have great reviews and we believe they are the experts of the area. Joy, Rob, and Michael were there each step of the way. From the beginning they came all the way out to Purcellville to sit and talk to us. They gave us all the information regarding the area we wanted to move into, they meticulously worked with us, and understood how important it was to find a home with specific room sizes to accommodate us, and especially our furniture. We are extremely grateful for their patience and their professional experience working with us under extreme pressure to find our ideal home within 30 days, and we would recommend the group to anyone!
Vincent & Ileana I., Buyers
We called Joy because we were looking to sell our home in north Arlington for top dollar. Joy was extremely prepared, knowledgeable, provided candid advice, and suggested solutions. Joy and her team (Michael is fantastic) literally did everything. And by everything (we were in another state) even down to replacing batteries in the smoke alarm to stop the chirping! Joy was very responsive and walked us through the process so we understood the pros/cons of our decisions. We found that working with Joy made selling a house pain free, and we recommend Joy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Go with Joy!!
Jeff W., Seller
We called The Deevy Group, based on an excellent recommendation, when we were looking to sell our current home and buy a new one...without any hassles. The team was able to work with us through the ups and down of selling and buying in a competitive market...they made it easy. Joy, Anne, and Michael were professional, knowledgeable, focused, positive at all times, and unwaveringly patient from our first meeting through a last minute repair after closing on the new house.
Thank you all so much for your efforts during what was a long road. The road had some bends and curves, but it went well with your direction.
You gals rock!
Cameron and Dawn L., Buyers and Sellers
We used The Deevy Group to both sell our existing home and purchase our new one. Navigating the intricacies of the home buying and selling process is never easy, but we were in good hands with Joy, and her team. Their support exceeded the expectations, based on previous experiences, I have had with other real estate agents. I respected The Deevy Group’s negotiation skills in particular. Whatever curve-ball or speed-bump came our way during our house buying and selling experience Joy was always ready with quality and effective plans of action that quickly allowed us to navigate through these issues and stay on course. Lesser agents could not have finalized our transactions and saved us as much money as they did. I would highly recommend them.
John & Stephenie E., Buyers & Sellers
My husband and I retained Joy Deevy as our Realtor, when we decided to purchase a home. Having lived most of our lives in Australia, we were unfamiliar with the purchasing procedure in the U.S.A.. We found Joy trustworthy, easy to communicate with, able to assess our needs, and very professional. At all stages we were very appreciative of the manner in which she protected our interests. We would certainly recommend her services to anyone considering purchasing a property.
Fred & Ree E., Buyers
Joy, Anne and Michael have been an amazing team as we looked to buy our first house after re-locating from Los Angeles to DC. They listened to our needs and wishes, found houses that fit, and were available at nearly any hour to show us a house. When we were ready to make an offer on a house, we discovered that the other Realtor had changed the deadline, giving us only hours to make an offer - a fact that Anne discovered only through her persistence. Joy and her team made it happen, and we just purchased a perfect house for our family. In a busy and heated market, Joy and her team make the experience simple, easy and effective. They are a pleasure to work with.
Tim E. & Susan L., Buyers
First of all, let me state that I have never had a real positive experience with the Real Estate Agents that I have used in the past. I wasn't looking forward to putting this house on the market, especially in this economy. We were ready to watch this house sit for a couple of years. But, that didn't happen. I interviewed four Real Estate agents and I chose Joy for several reasons. She had a great personality, very personable, but professional. She had grown up in the area, so she knew it very well. She didn't ask that we make major upgrades to the house like the others insisted that it would not sell without. Finally, she had a drive that the others did not possess. When Joy's assessment of the home's value was in question, she obtained an appraisal at her own cost. We listed the home and immediately received a couple of offers and sold the house in the first week! It was amazing! During the next several weeks as we approached settlement, Joy was there to let various contractors and professionals come in to perform required work and pick-ups. I could call her at anytime, any day. She was always accessible. We did all of this from North Carolina! It was truly a positive and professional experience. It was the first time that I actually thought I was getting my moneys worth from the real estate profession. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. It was a true pleasure to work with her.
Randy L., Seller
I contacted The Deevy Group when I was looking for a professional real estate team that could sell my condo in Alexandria. After meeting with Joy Deevy, I felt comfortable and confident that she had an excellent handle on the market and would represent my interests professionally. I was very pleased with the support that Joy and Michael gave me throughout the home sale process. They kept me updated every step of the way. I would recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who is looking for a professional team that keeps you informed throughout the process.
Vince Z., Seller
Joy and her team are phenomenal! Joy is smart and extremely good at what she does. The Deevy Group was highly recommended by a friend, and we were very satisfied with how well our condo sale went. We will recommend them to everyone we know. Thanks for everything Joy!
Jaime H., Seller
We sincerely appreciate the attention and drive that Anne Ellery showed on our behalf during the sale our uncle’s home. Anne made us feel like we were her only client at times. We chose The Deevy Group because of their reputation, and we were most pleased with Anne’s willingness to assist us in all aspects of preparing the home for sale, and her excellent communication through the closing process.
Gregory P., Seller
Anne Ellery is a wonderful and very patient person. She asked very detailed questions about what I was looking for in my first home, and she really listened to what I wanted. She found homes that met my criteria, and I just closed on the perfect one. Anne was always available to answer my questions, and I feel very fortunate to have had her as my Realtor. I highly recommend Anne and The Deevy Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
