Earle did a fantastic job in helping me buy my first home in the DC area. She was patient as we looked through zillions of condos, and even as I suspended my search for several months. Once we found the perfect place, she and her team of professionals made the inspection, efficient, professional and--dare I say?--fun process.

Thanks, Earle!

Earle -

I just wanted to drop you a note to express our sincere thanks for the tremendous job you and your marvelous team did in getting our home sold so quickly.  Hulda and I certainly appreciate the fact that this didn't happen by accident. At the end of the day, it was the result of lots of hard work by knowledgeable, dedicated and committed professionals.

Rather than just showing me houses to buy, Earle instead took a different approach with me.  She took the time to educate me on the Washington DC housing market.  She patiently showed me houses that could work, and houses that she knew wouldn't work. By taking this approach, she could quickly gauge what would be the right house for my family.  This approach was very time consuming for Earle.  But, in the end, it turned out to be the most effective way.  We love our new home and couldn't have done it without Earle.

From the first time that I interviewed Earle as a potential agent, I knew that she was the one I trusted to sell our townhouse.  She displayed a remarkable knowledge of not only the real estate environment but she had done her homework on our property before we met.  Her communication skills are excellent and she listened to what my husband and I wanted but also gave us good advice.  After we signed the contract, we knew that we were in good hands as the saying goes.  She pays attention to every detail and her support staff is just the best.  The house sold in 5 days and it was absolutely hassle free and a wonderful experience.   I would recommend her to anyone.

Earle came recommended to us from a friend who had sold a few months before us. It proved to be an excellent recommendation as Earle and her team managed to quickly sell our home in an extremely challenging market for sellers. I believe our home was the only one to go under contract, let alone sell, in our neighborhood within the past 3 months. Without Earle's knowledge of the market and creative marketing, our home may be still be for sale. If you need to sell your home, then you need to call Earle.

When I purchased my first home in April of 2005, my only hope was many happy years and to sell it break-even. When work moved me in January of 2012, rather than write a check to sell it, I kept it as a rental with C&B Property Management. When I finally decided to sell in early 2014, I wasted the spring season with another realtor who was very thorough and very competent, but (in my opinion) misread the spring market and overpriced. Just as I was putting my home back up for rent, C&B recommended I speak with Earle, who had been working with them for many years. Earle is professional, an expert in the market and macroeconomic factors that can sway it, and her confidence seems based on her many years of experience. She coached me through issues with my property and ultimately my buyer, worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure we closed on time without any issues. I highly recommend Earle if you are serious about buying or selling your home in Northern Virginia.

Your service was above and beyond measure-- not only was your advice calming in a chaotic market, but supported by data and years of experience. I could not have asked for a more judiciously attentive broker. Thank you for all your help and getting the impossible done in such short notice. I would unreservedly recommend you to anyone coming into the area.

The purpose of this note is to thank you for the excellent professional services that you provided to us in expeditiously selling our home in Annandale, Virginia. Your advertising of the property, compensated for a severe buyers market with an excess of properties for sale and a poor number of sales in the months proceeding the sale of our house. Your superb management skills extended to the closing date where you not only represent our interests but also dealt with a difficult buyer. I have only admiration for you business skills and would seek your assistance if we need to sell another property.

Now that we’ve worked on the house, moved our stuff in, painted over (most of) the pink, and looked around, we can’t believe we have a house. We know you put in countless hours to make sure we ended up with the right place which we appreciate so much because this was the only house we both agreed on. I am shocked and awed at how much time it takes to go to closing, and know you all did more than we could ever comprehend. We are so thankful that you put in all that hard work. We can’t thank you enough for helping us buy our fist home.

Dear Earle and Team,

Thank you so much for your sustained superior efforts in finding us just the right buyer! You are the BEST!

Earle Whitmore sold my primary residence in the second half of 2008. She did it a declining market. Earle helped me get a fair price and she sold my home on the comparatively aggressive time line I requested. I have worked with Earle for 15 years. She has sold two homes for me. She is about to help me identify and procure a new primary residence.

I do business with Earle and I recommend her without hesitation, reservation or qualification - particularly in difficult market conditions - for the following reasons:

  • Earle knows the Washington area housing market, and she knows it cold. In her several decades of experience assisting clients buying and selling homes in good and bad markets she can and does provide exceptional guidance. Earle knows what she is doing, and she represents her clients and their interests exceptionally well.
  • Earle values around honesty, integrity, reliability and industry are beyond reproach. I can always count on Earle to do the right thing when I am not looking. No one works harder and with higher standards than Earle.
  • Communication: Earle remains in frequent and regular contact with me when getting my home ready for sale, through the marketing period and through closing.
  • Expertise: Earle knows exactly how to price and market my home – how to set it apart from competitive properties. Her guidance and recommendations prove unfailingly accurate.
  • Confidence, candor and patience: Earle sells homes because she believes in her formidable ability to do so in all kinds of market conditions. Through candor and honesty she manages my expectations. She offers her best counsel and patiently, very patiently, waits for me to embrace here guidance and move forward.
  • Creativity: Earle made innovative marketing recommendations that I adopted and that were directly responsible for bringing the right buyer to the home she sold for me in the second half of 2008. Her solution maintained sales price while moving the property within six weeks of putting it on the market

Thank you so much for all of your hard work, dedication and professionalism during the most stressful time of our lives. We appreciate your efforts to keep us informed throughout the entire process of selling our home and for maintaining a calm demeanor even when we were beginning to unravel! It was a very emotional and humbling experience for us and we were grateful to have your expertise and guidance in helping us through it.
