This is the tale of two Trophy Homes sales that delighted and stunned a Washington, DC couple who came to us for real estate advice and assistance. Their first challenge was to help them buy an American University Park home that was under renovation and expansion and was attracting a lot of attention before it was on the market. They also asked us to assist them in selling their current Woodley Park property — naturally hoping for a nice profit. Here’s what happened.
The Ramsay family had their eye on what was going to be a stunning renovation by Lifetime Construction — a 5-bedroom, 4-and-a-half bath on four levels. It features a chef’s inspired kitchen among many amazing amenities. Thanks to our relationship with the TTR Sotheby’s listing agent, Greg Gaddy, we were able to craft a winning offer that grabbed the sale in the Private Market. Listed for $1,695,000, it sold for $1,720,000 and everyone was ecstatic. As Kimberly Ramsay said, “It’s exactly why we hired your team and now we wake up every day surrounded by this beautiful home and in an equally wonderful neighborhood. We totally got an unfair advantage having you guys find our home before anyone else ever got to make an offer…We never dreamed we would find a home so perfect for our family.”
The story gets better because The Ramsey’s’ beautiful Woodley Park residence now needed to be sold. Knowing the neighborhood, and the market, we persuaded the owners to invest in a few well-executed renovations and exquisite staging amounting to $13,000 or about 1% of the listing price we recommended — $1,295,000. Our skillfully executed strategy netted our sellers $191,000 over list.
Again, Kimberly Ramsey spoke up, “We are beyond thrilled and just so happy that we put our trust in you…This price is beyond what we could have imagined. You are incredible.”
