Anne brings something to real estate which you cannot put a price on: Integrity – the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles! Her combined knowledge of the market and her experience in real estate were invaluable to us as we considered different neighborhoods and debated whether to build a new house or buy an existing property. She hung in there with us for over two years searching for the perfect scenario for our family. During our time with Anne we experienced exceptional service and were made to feel like we were the only couple/family she was working with – that alone is invaluable to a busy working family. She found the perfect house for us to buy, and helped us sell our existing home in a week’s time - with multiple offers. She’s the Best in Town - We couldn’t have been in better hands!!

Anne is the best realtor we have ever worked with, and I highly recommend her! She helped us list and sell our house and she was the consummate professional. Anne was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the market, and I will definitely work with her again!
Anne DiBenedetto was the best real estate agent as she helped ensure that I would get the house that I wanted. She helped make sure that my offer was the strongest of the five that were received on my new house.
Working with Anne was a wonderful experience. We worked with Anne as both our selling and buying agent. Her contacts in the industry, expertise, responsiveness, and attention to detail really paid off. I highly recommend her for any local real estate transactions.
For two years we tried to sell our home in McLean. We tried two different real estate professionals. We finally gave up and became landlords ~ taking a two year rental. Fast forward to summer of 2016. We decided to contract with Anne DiBenedetto. She came highly recommended from our neighbor who had sold their home just a year before.
Anne was professional, concise and to the point. She made several recommendations meant to get the property ready to sell. We followed her advice to every detail. I believe that Anne was instrumental in our home selling so quickly.
Anne knows the McLean market quite well. She has an eye for improvements that make the home look special.
We live in another state, which can make it difficult to coordinate all of the moving parts of repairs, redesign, staging, etc. Anne and her team made it feel seamless for my husband and me. I would highly recommend Anne to anyone buying or selling a home in the McLean marketplace.
Anne’s level of service was exceptional! From listing through the sale, Anne's advice and guidance were invaluable. She also went above and beyond in caring for our property while we were out of town. Anne's entire team at Washington Fine Properties was wonderful and helpful.
I thank you for all the hard work you put into selling both houses. Your judgement calls on when to lower the price, how to negotiate (you're tough but very diplomatic), your endless energy and your attention to detail made both of these houses sell when others weren't. I've learned a ton from you and really enjoy your directness. Thank you for that, too. We'll still be building more houses, and I'm sure we'll get back together again with you listing another house. I've truly enjoyed working with you.

I wanted to take the opportunity to recognize Anne’s professional services and, ultimately, success for our clients. They were concerned about their ability to get the value they needed for their million-dollar-plus home, considering they listed it in late August/early September. We all know that’s not always the most ideal time of year to enter the market as a seller, but Anne built their confidence, developed a marketing plan that was effective, and ultimately navigated them through the sale of their home in less than 90 days. It was a success story and impressive.
Thank you for connecting us to Anne, who ultimately won over the clients, who interviewed two other agents from different agencies. They chose Anne, and I’m glad they did.
Thank you again, and we look forward to working with Anne in the future.

Her advice about how to price the house and market it was excellent, and she went the extra mile, pitching in with her personal house keeper and her husband. She seemed to know every tradesman in McLean and could get them on site in no time. They all did a good job and charged fairly.

On the first weekend our home was on the market, we had two competing offers that were exactly what Anne estimated on the CMA. Had we listened to the relocation company and the other competing CMA, our loss would have been significant. Finally, because we had to relocate immediately, Anne handled all the details that an owner normally handles, including inspections, repairs and showings.

As our Listing Agent, Anne DiBenedetto did it all for us: She studied and then explained the market to us to ensure that the price we set for our existing home was just right. She recommended first-rate, reliable, and reasonably priced contractors (painters, landscapers and stagers) who helped us get our 25-year-old home ready for listing. During what we are told was a very challenging time to be selling a house in McLean, Anne made it all easy.
Thank you so much for all of your help. You really did a great job, and we sincerely appreciate your hard work. Even though we are no longer in Northern Virginia, I am still in touch with many people in the area, and will certainly recommend you. I can already think of one family that I have worked with for several years who could really use your help.
I congratulate myself for doing my homework well and finding you in the first place among all the realtors available, and for following my instincts in choosing to work with you. But I did not realize how much enthusiasm, effort and expertise you were going to provide. I'm glad I listened to your advice about timing and presentation, and I'm sure that the investment I made in following your advice about the house presentation more than paid off. To get two full-price offers within five days of it going on the market was stunning, given the state of the housing market and the broader economy.
I really appreciated your coaching and feedback along the way, your help with finding the right people to fix what needed to be fixed, and the nice touch you showed in balancing professionalism with friendliness.
She went above and beyond her role as an agent and made the details of buying very easy. She is an incredible negotiator and we felt confident to have her speak on our behalf.

There is no doubt that your diligent efforts and integrity were responsible for our success in
these transactions, and we are certainly glad that we chose you to represent us. You were very sensitive and responsive to all of our needs, and we appreciated your prompt availability to us.

and we felt confident to have her speak on our behalf.

This was our fourth home purchase and the only enjoyable one. She was truly excellent. She understood exactly what we wanted and never pressured us into anything.
Sami & Julie A.
Anne's in-depth understanding of the local market, combined with her attention to detail on inspection and repair issues, were crucial to the completion of the purchase of our home. She patiently guided us as we tried to navigate the complicated D.C. housing market and helped us find a home that was perfect for our needs.

I thought it would be a struggle to move my family from Hawaii to the DC area and you proved me wrong. I looked outside the "normal" system for references to find a realtor that has a great reputation and is dialed into the Northern Virginia market and found you. Janis and I liked your style and aggressiveness from the very first moment. You made my house-hunting trips from Hawaii deliberate, with no wasted time. You anticipated my family’s needs, pre-screened potential homes daily, videoed houses in advance of my trips, patiently answered a myriad of questions, and tirelessly championed our negotiations, purchase, inspections, and closing. You made my most complex move effortless. You're the best!
