We recently had the good fortune of working with Cailin Monahan, who orchestrated the sale of our home in Chevy Chase under somewhat challenging circumstances. We had relocated prior to listing our home, and the logistics of getting our home ready were quite complicated. Our home needed to be cleared out of family belongings and staged. There was also a great deal of deferred maintenance and some upgrading, which needed to be completed for the very competitive market. When an accident and surgery prevented me from traveling to our home to coordinate the contractors, movers, and stagers, Cailin took charge and went above and beyond to ensure that our house was ready and on the market in an extremely short time frame. Having bought and sold many homes in the DC metro area as well as Los Angeles and Boston, we have never worked with an agent who was so resourceful and willing to do whatever was required to get our home sold. She also represented us well in the negotiations with prospective Buyers. She had a great command of every detail regarding the home, the community and the competition. Cailin truly worked a miracle for us. I cannot recommend her more highly as an ethical, helpful and thoughtful person who is not only a joy to work with but who will also give you the best possible representation in marketing your home.
I would highly recommend Cailin Monahan of Washington Fine Properties to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home. My home-buying experience with her was exceptional—and enjoyable!
As a first-time home buyer in DC, I was fortunate to have Cailinís first-rate knowledge of the DC housing market, experience, and patience to guide me through the home-buying process. She took time to understand my needs, worked incredibly hard on my behalf, and was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. I ended up securing a fantastic property in a very competitive bidding situation due in no small part to her persistence and attention to detail. A job well done!
I had just the best experience with Cailin as my buyer's agent. We found a great gem of a place. She was very friendly, thoughtful, organized and hard working on my behalf. She worked within my wish list, set me up with financing folks, asked tough questions of the owners, never forgot to follow up on questions about a property and was patient in helping me find a good place. We eventually found a surprisingly good match, and she guided me successfully in under-bidding on it. She worked closely with me to get the house inspection and then chased down various questions. At her suggestion, she even setup a repeat trip to the home just to make sure family members were comfortable with the choice. Hard to relate just how wonderful it is to have someone with her smarts and tenaciousness helping you find and buy a home. Thank you, Cailin!
Cailin recently helped us buy our first home in Upper Northwest Washington, D.C. She was a pleasure to deal with — upbeat, resourceful, and professional. Cailin was always available when we needed her during the stressful, months-long process of finding and securing the right house. She and Nancy are a winning team!
