Well – how often in a lifetime does one come across a true professional? Adaline Neely is such a person in the real estate realm.
She managed to sell our home in Potomac in less than 60 days, in spite of a slow market and in spite of having an expensive (almost $2 million) home. She kept us up-to-date often with any developments, so there was no guess work on where the sales process stood.
Adaline is extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market – locally, regionally and nationally. My wife and I were provided with all types of data to help us with our sale and transition.
The sales process is more than one document – it is a flurry of documents that are required by local, state and federal agencies. Adaline is well-versed in all of these documents and makes sure that both the buyer and the seller keep on schedule – reducing the possibility of delays, legal hassles, and other entanglements.
Overlaying the above positives, Adaline brings a sparkling personality and dozens of stories, keeping the buyer and the seller entertained, as well as well-serviced.

Adaline has been a fabulous agent to work with. If something went wrong, she's get me a number and have it addressed in hours. She was able to understand what I was looking for in my new home without me having to say a word, and she was attentive and considerate throughout. She was also extremely admirable and protective of all parties in the transaction. I would highly recommend Adaline to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate!

We would highly recommend Adaline over and over. Her expertise and real estate knowledge, as she has a great deal of experience, are priceless. She is very well-connected in this industry, and we appreciated this side of her. Her warmth and professionalism and the knowledge that she truly represented our interests were greatly valued. It's been an absolute pleasure getting to know her.
Thank you, Adaline!

We have used Adaline in the last seven years for five real estate transactions — most recently for the sale of our home. From our perspective, she is one the most knowledgeable people in the business, and our house sold very quickly at a price with which we were more than satisfied. She is extremely responsive and has excellent negotiation skills. We recommend Adaline without reservation — she is simply the best!

Adaline and Kari have been amazing to work with on both the sale of my old home, and the purchase of my new home. They bring decades of experience, knowledge, and expertise to the table. They went above and beyond in ways I couldn't have imagined, making the processes manageable and pleasant. I appreciate their highly professional work ethic, dedication, and attention to detail in all aspects of the transactions. They are top-notch in every way, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with them again!
MD Seller and Buyer
Kari and Adaline are just amazing. The level of service they provide is above and beyond other agents I've worked with. They are always available for questions, visits, and are straight up with facts and their educated opinions. We wouldn't have found our new home without their hard work and amazing contacts. They skillfully guided us through a very complicated inspection repair period, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you want the best in the DC area, give them a call and you can't go wrong!

Adaline Neely and Kari Dainty did a great job in selling my home. They used a highly competent interior designer to advise on the staging of the property such that it was very attractive to prospective buyers. Following the open house, there were immediately three offers, one of which was accepted. Throughout the entire process, Adaline and Kari were completely professional and thorough in providing assistance and advice. I highly recommend them to anyone planning to buy or sell a home.
Adaline Neely and Kari Dainty took very good care of us throughout the process of buying our first home. They guided us every step of the way and took the extra time to explain everything to us during each step in the process. Kari was extremely responsive and on top of things. We felt very comfortable in her and Adaline's hands, and we knew that they were always looking out for our best interest. We would definitely recommend them to any future home buyers.
Thank you for your incredible work in selling our home for our asking price after only two days on the market. After our experience with Adeline as the selling agent for our home years ago, we knew when the time came to sell we would turn to Adeline to represent us. We simply could not have made a better decision and can’t imagine having gone through this process with anyone else. From the first meeting through closing and beyond, you listened to us, you gave us your frank opinion, and then you rolled up your sleeves and simply made things happen. At every step of the process, your deep knowledge of the market, your connections with the top experts in the business, and your sterling reputation ensured that everything ran smoothly. You are also two of the kindest and most genuinely cheerful people we know. We feel very lucky to have had you with us in this journey.

I interviewed a number of real estate professionals before deciding to list with Adaline and Kari. I immediately knew they were the right team. Adaline and Kari are two of the hardest-working real estate professionals in the area. They make a great team. Extremely professional and confident. Great communication skills and just wonderful people to work with. I could not recommend two more qualified professionals. So many examples... We listed our home in North Bethesda, MD, fully furnished. They visited our home almost on a daily basis, just to be sure the premises were safe and secure. One time, very late at night and just to be sure the lights were off after a showing. And these are very busy professionals. There was never a time when the smallest request wasn't handled promptly and without hesitation.
Adaline and Kari (and the staff of Washington Fine Properties) were terrific every step of the way. They convinced us that listing our house for sale in February would be better than waiting until spring (it was a great decision). They helped us find contractors to take care of some minor cosmetic issues, making the house look wonderful —not just for a beautiful brochure that they produced but especially for the only open house we needed, which within 2 days produced two full-price offers (including one above asking price without contingencies!!). This was the fourth time that a family member had used Adaline and Washington Fine Properties for a purchase or sale, and Kari was a fantastic addition to the team. We loved Adaline's and Kari's enthusiasm and their drive to make the sale of our house go so smoothly.
Adaline and Kari were highly recommended by one of our friends who had a great experience buying and selling their house. The recommendation was spot on! From preparing our house to put on the market in order to achieve the best possible price to negotiating and settling on our new home, Adaline and Kari were invaluable in their guidance. Both were professional, very prompt in responding to inquiries and were practically available 24/7. Without their expertise, advice and counsel, there is absolutely no way we would be where we are, in a fabulous house we feel we paid a great price for. Though I wouldn't want to think about moving for quite a while, I know whom I will be contacting if our needs change.
Kari Dainty and Adaline Neely helped us sell our family home. I can honestly say that we would not have received the level of service they provided from any other agent. Kari worked side by side with us to prepare our home for sale and had a deep bench of talented handymen and other service providers at the ready. The photography and marketing of the home were first-rate. Kari unfailingly made herself available to show the home and followed up on every lead. She was completely responsive to our questions and needs throughout the process. Adaline and Kari brought the sale to a successful close with just the right approach to negotiation. We could not have been happier with their service.
Adaline is on it! I appreciated the enormous wealth of knowledge, attention to detail and data that supported not only a great home buy, but a good business decision. Why we will work with Adaline and her team again: - Immediately available, in-person - Presented comps on price per square foot basis - Presented unique financing option that others said was not available - Guided us through a competitive bidding process, which we won while still achieving great value - Absolute highest integrity.
Thank you Adaline!

We thought we were well represented by Adaline and Kari. We enjoyed working with them and would happily recommend them with complete confidence.

Dear Adaline and Kari:
I cannot thank you enough for the attention to detail and support throughout the last 2.5 months. You two are truly outstanding and always went way beyond what was required to get the job done. Both of you were always available to answer questions and calm our nerves throughout this process.
E. A. Sacks
We can't thank you and Kari enough for all the hard work and dedication that you put into making this possible. We are very fortunate and blessed in so many ways. Without the experience and expertise of both of you, I don't think we would have had the successful outcome that we did yesterday.

Adaline found our home in Potomac and sold our condominium in North Bethesda. She is the perfect blend of personality and professionalism.
From our first meeting, we instantly took a deep breath knowing that we were in good hands with Adaline. She has a deep understanding of the real estate market and a wonderful ability to appreciate individual situations. Adaline understood exactly what we were looking for in a new home and delivered it to us within just a few short weeks. She literally checked off every item on our wish list.
In selling our condo, we followed every piece of Adaline and Kari’s advice and could not have been happier with the final result. Their business style was seamless and well refined. They always had time to answer our questions and went to every effort to ensure that we were comfortable and encouraged. They have an extensive network within the real estate community that brings the industry’s best right to your doorstep.
We look forward to our friends and family working with Adaline and Kari so they can enjoy the terrific results that Adaline and Kari always deliver.

Adaline Neely is the consummate real estate agent. Her vast experience, wealth of knowledge, and constant professionalism coupled with an expert team helped us deftly navigate the complexities of the current housing market. Washington Fine Properties made the purchase of our dream home a reality.

I have worked with Adaline several times over the past few years selling two homes in the Maryland suburbs. Both times my experience was wonderful! Adaline was recommended to me as someone who was a wonderful listener, a great agent and someone who really knew the market and the community. This proved true in all of my dealings with her. She knew what changes we needed to make to the homes before we put them on the market and guided us in terms of what we needed to do and what we did not need to do before putting our homes on the market. Each time her advice proved sound and we benefitted from the changes we did make. The process of negotiations, inspections, and closing went smoothly, and Adaline and her team were with me every step of the way.
In addition, on my recommendation, Adaline helped a family member find a home in the DC area. She was patient and really listened to what they were looking for in a home. She was able to work with them and show them homes she thought they would be interested in. She guided them through the purchase process and they are happily living in their first home.
Adaline works with a wonderful group of people. The expertise from her team members, especially her assistant Kari, results in almost 24/7 hand-holding during the stressful times that buying and selling a home inevitably bring. I would recommend Adaline to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Washington, DC, area.
We would like to express our great appreciation for the highly professional way you worked with us in listing and selling our cooperative unit at 3900 Watson Place at a very good market price.
Your intimate knowledge of the coop and condo markets, and particularly the unique qualities of 3900 Watson Place, helped us immeasurably in the planning and pricing phase. The staging of our unit that you organized for us was magnificent. You worked hard in marketing the unit in a variety of ways. Your skill and follow-up in working with the agents for potential buyers, and then for buyers offering contracts, was invaluable. And then your attention to detail and follow-through made the settlement a pleasurable experience. I can't think of anything a property seller would want or expect from their real estate agent that you didn't accomplish for us. And all that with a sense of style, grace and sense of humor that made you a charm to work with.
Thank you for serving us so well.
