We really can't say enough good things about the HRL Group. We worked with Chris directly but also always knew we had the benefit of a three-person team when it came to perspective on pricing, ability to quickly schedule showings, access to off-market listings and a rolodex of contractors that could pull through in a pinch for everything from inspections to cost estimates for adding a powder room or extra bedroom. Oh, and there was ALWAYS someone available to get us in the door the day a new property hit the market, which, as anyone currently house hunting in DC will tell you, is key in a city where houses sell in a weekend or less. After losing homes in two previous bidding wars (both had multiple offers and went well above asking), we knew we'd need to be aggressive and act quickly to get the house we ultimately ended up buying. Chris got us in within hours of it hitting the market and, when we decided to put an offer in that day, worked with our lender to get the paperwork drawn up that evening. He also must have called at least three different inspectors to convince someone to come look at the house first thing the next morning, saving us from feeling like we needed to waive the inspection before our offer expired and other potential buyers were scheduled to go in. Not only that, but he stayed in close contact with the listing agent throughout the process to make sure she expedited communication with the sellers, who don't live in DC and were initially hard to track down (they probably weren't expecting their house to sell in less than 24 hours!). Bottom line, we feel very confident saying we would not be in the house we are in, which we love, had we used a less seasoned or persistent agent. Chris and his teammates were amazing counselors and advocates for us from the first open house we visited to the day we closed on our new home. We feel so grateful to have worked with them and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the DC area!

HRL Partners (Robert, Adam and Chris) were on top of every step of the purchase of our new home and provided exceptional service during the preparation of our home for sale: the pricing process, open house and showings and finally the selection of offers. We sold our home at the price we wanted thanks to the professional pricing process that HRL advised. We feel that the HRL team is exceptionally professional but at the same time very personable; we not only received top rated service, but made three great friends in the process and will definitely recommend them to any prospective home buyers or sellers.

This team is simply superb!! I was quite concerned about selling my condo from overseas, especially with an 11-hour time difference. Adam, Robert and Chris guided me through the process, making it far easier than I had thought. I especially appreciate that they constantly went above and beyond my expectations. They are extremely knowledgeable about the market and were incredibly customer-service oriented, willing to discuss issue well into their evening. I highly recommend this talented, committed team!
Honest and hardworking team with a solid comprehension of how to market homes in today's cluttered marketing ecosystem. There are too many agents whose only contribution to marketing a home is advising on a low price. Robert-Adam-Chris and Friends are anything but that, and, in fact, excited to push the envelope wherever they can. But what I can't emphasize enough is they understand what matters in todays media landscape. From start to finish, the marketing campaign for our home was aimed to grab users' attention online, leave enough to imagination to pull them into the home and when opportunity struck, they were ready to close. When we launched the home they were A/B testing landing images and had staff ensuring that the listing and any changes propagated appropriately though the dozens of real estate sites out there. I didn't just have a real estate team, I had a marketing firm helping to achieve my goals.
HRL Partners (Robert Hryniewicki, Adam Rackliffe and Christopher Leary) are an exceptionally talented, seamless team of knowledgeable, highly professional, gracious, courteous and instantly responsive men who met our every expectation. We picked them to list our $3m+ home after a rigorous interview process involving several other well-regarded firms and, start to finish, were glad we did. Because the list price was high for Old Town, Alexandria, the house historic (175 years), and the finish and layout unique, the sale process was challenging. They dealt with clients and agents from other firms with intelligence, respect and determination. They showed up, prepared, impeccable, on time always and followed up. They anticipated pitfalls; they created intelligent solutions. Their marketing associate, Joseph Kotula, produced smart, tight, descriptive copy for well-placed ads with fine photography. In addition to all this first-rate professionalism of HRL Partners, these are four really nice men with whom we were not just pleased to work, but happy to know.
Linda Fuselier and Christopher Ogden
I can’t recommend Robert Hryniewicki, Adam Rackliffe, & Christopher Leary more! The HRL Partners were absolutely fantastic to work with - funny, patient, considerate, responsive and incredibly knowledgeable. They made buying our first home a smooth and enjoyable process in DC, and I can’t wait to work with them again in the future!
Laura Reynolds and Brandon Bobisink
Adam Rackliffe, Robert Hryniewicki, and Chris Leary of HRL Partners are the best of the best! Smart and insightful... they knew exactly what we were looking for and found us a great house. Knowledgeable... their expertise made a difference several times during this process. And they are a delight to work with as well! I highly recommend working with Adam, Robert and Chris!
Mary and Steve Kletter
I could not more highly recommend Chris Leary, Adam Rackliffe, and Robert Hryniewicki of HRL Partners! I moved to the city from out of state and was renting while looking for the perfect place. We saw a lot of houses — in several neighborhoods. Chris, Adam, and Robert are extremely knowledgeable, really easy to work with, and client-focused. They also had a good sense of what I was looking for — even when I wasn't sure. I ended up in a great end-unit row home in Woodley Park. I paid a fair price in a competitive market, and their impressive network of appraisers, mortgage brokers, and home-repair people made the settlement and move-in process both seamless and pain-free.
Robert Hryniewicki, Adam Rackliffe and Christopher Leary and their HRL Partners team at Washington Fine Properties are simply the best! My desires when selling my home in North Cleveland Park were very specific. I felt that they heard me clearly and used their vast knowledge, expertise and stellar resources to meet every one of my goals. Robert, Adam, Chris and Joe were readily available to me and worked in perfect harmony to address any and all of my questions and concerns. It amazed me how they made me feel like I was their number one priority despite their robust clientele. From beginning to end, I knew that I was in great hands with this team. They explained to me exactly what was needed to deliver a quality product that would attract the ideal buyer. In the end, their strategy worked seamlessly, and I closed on the sale of my house in less than a month for more than my asking price. Choosing a realtor can be a very difficult undertaking. If your desire is to work with personable, ethical and seasoned realtors who will exceed your expectations, your choice is clear - HRL Partners at Washington Fine Properties!
Dr. Lisa R. Ginn
Robert, Adam and Chris could not have been more helpful and professional during our home purchase process. They combined thoughtful market analysis with excellent judgment and outstanding local knowledge, advising us not only on specific properties, but also on neighborhoods and service providers. We have bought and sold other homes in the past with other brokers and I would rate the HRL team as absolutely top-tier.
Elisa and Josh Miller
We worked with Adam Rackliffe, Robert Hryniewicki, and Christopher Leary to purchase a new- construction condo in Adams Morgan. From first showing to final closing in a very complicated deal, they were on top of everything, a pleasure to work with, and most of all we always felt they were looking out for us. I have bought and sold a lot of properties, and Adam, Robert, and Chris are by far the best agents we have ever worked with. This purchase was new construction, so millions of little details, negotiations, complications, and challenges. Through it all, Adam, Robert, and Chris were calm and gave us a sense of balance as we went through the ups and downs. They were great as a sounding board as we made decisions in negotiations. On the day of closing they were efficient and knew exactly what needed to be done. I know that even after closing we can always depend on them. They rock.
Robert, Adam, and Chris are first-rate. Their initial analysis of our condo's position in the marketplace was thoughtful and, in retrospect, spot-on. Responsiveness to email and calls was outstanding throughout. I also appreciated them playing it straight with us when others might have sugar-coated less than happy developments. We sold our unit at a very fair price to a highly qualified buyer. You won't go wrong with Robert, Adam, and Chris.
We could not be happier with the services of Hryniewicki, Rackliffe, & Leary. We felt we were in good hands every step of the way, both on the selling and buying side. They made a daunting home search and transition seamless and easy, always there to answer our questions, offer valuable insight, and guide us through smart decisions.
Regan Billingsley and Donald Caron
Robert, Adam, and Chris sold our house at 4606 Kenmore Drive, and it was a super experience across the board. The entire team knows the market inside and out, and they go the extra mile for you! But perhaps the thing we appreciated the most was the candid counsel. Truly top notch.
Jen and Scott Frederick
I am a first-time homeowner and had a lot to learn about the buying process. Chris Leary, Robert Hryniewicki, and Adam Rackliffe were extremely helpful and made the whole experience very comfortable and stress-free, guiding and advising me every step of the way. They provided top-quality service and were a joy to work with. I was especially impressed by their network of trusted professionals (from mortgage agents and insurance companies to home inspectors and house painters), which saved me a lot of time and energy and allowed me to focus on the fun part — finding a new home that I love! I am very happy with their work and strongly recommend them.
Felipe Rocha dos Santos
Bill Moody, Robert Hryniewicki, Adam Rackliffe and Christopher Leary made the home-buying and -selling process as easy as possible for us! Our home sold within days of being on the market, and they guided us through the negotiations of buying a new home. It all worked seamlessly for us. They were also knowledgeable when it came to local contacts for home inspectors, moving companies, etc. It was a great buying and selling experience!!
Michael and Stefanie Harrington
If you've heard that all the good properties in DC go before they hit the multiple listings — and you're wondering how you can ever find anything in a market like this — you MUST contact Bill Moody, Robert Hryniewicki, Adam Rackliffe, and Christopher Leary at Washington Fine Properties.
Before we started working with them, we spent many wasted evenings looking at properties that were nowhere close to the area that we were interested in and had few of the "must haves" of our checklist. "DC is a seller's market" is what the agents were telling us. And we believed them until our first meeting with the WFP team. They listened carefully to what we were looking for, then worked their tremendous network of agents and contacts to find us properties to review BEFORE or JUST AS they were being listed. No more crowds at a reduced-price Open Houses! We had a TEAM of DC real estate professionals working on our behalf — from start to finish. All the professionals WFP brought into the process (inspectors, bankers, attorneys, etc.) were equally skilled and responsive. The entire process went off without a hitch — flawless. With fantastic results. We are VERY satisfied clients.
Rebecca Hyde and Joseph Radinovic
Robert, Adam, and Chris were consummate professionals handling my transaction. They knew the area, were pro-active with the seller, negotiated with a good understanding of the market and were immediately responsive. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I was relocating to DC from abroad, and they were my "boots on the ground" during the purchase. I would recommend them very highly to anyone looking for a top-notch realtor in the Washington, DC, area.
Chris, Adam, Robert, and Bill at Washington Fine Properties were a dream to work with. From my initial passive attempts at finding a place to the actual purchase of my condo, the team was there to help every step of the way and worked with me at MY pace. Once I decided on a property, they worked to get me a significant seller's credit and even after closing were still available to help with things I needed after I moved in. If you're in the market for a home in the DMV area, I highly recommend Chris, Adam, Robert, and Bill at WFP.
Patrick Cody Stuart
I am a first-time homebuyer - I was largely on the fence about whether or not to buy. So I called up WFP to see what the process would look like and to purely educate myself on what would be required and if it was right for me to enter the market.
Working with Chris Leary, William Moody, Robert Hryniewicki and Adam Rackliffe was an absolute dream. From the initial introductory meeting to set up what I was looking for and where, through the actual touring of properties and discussions about financing, I never once felt rushed or obligated.
In addition, WFP has fantastic connections all around the DC areas; be it home inspectors, lending agents, title companies, etc. These connections proved crucial in ensuring that everything moved along smoothly and responses were made quickly.
Furthermore, when dealt with a seemingly impossible hand of personal travel and tough negotiating positions, the WFP team took it all completely in stride.
I heartily recommend these gentlemen and will recommend them to all potential future home buyers or sellers.
Robert, Adam, Chris, and Bill, along with the entire Washington Fine Properties (WFP) team, provided the absolute best service, start to finish, that we could have possibly hoped for. We interviewed a number of other highly reputable firms before selecting WFP. The competition was not close. From the first meeting, it was clear that WFP had the market knowledge, demeanor, and ability to execute that we were looking for in a real estate firm. WFP was attentive, detail-oriented, and worked diligently to make the process as smooth as possible for us. The entire sales process - from their knowledge of the market and timing our listing, to staging, pricing, and receiving multiple, competitive bids above our asking price - could not have been less stressful or more straightforward. Their network of service providers helped make the entire sales process seamless, and they made it a priority to ensure that our family was comfortable and happy with the process from start to finish. We have been very happy in our house and it was important to us not just to obtain an optimal sales price but also to feel like we were being thoughtful in finding a good buyer for our home. WFP is results-drive, and they care about the clients they choose to take on. I cannot recommend this team highly enough and I will absolutely continue to use them in the future. I don't know why anyone would choose a different firm to represent them in a matter as important as the sale of their home.
Ned Sebelius and Lisa Rockefeller
This is the best real estate team we have worked with in years. Robert Hryniewicki, William F. X. Moody, Adam T. Rackliffe and Christopher R. Leary were working on our property as a team, and all were completely professional. Our property sold in a week at higher than asking price. They had contingencies for whatever might happen and incorporated the best marketing plan that we have ever seen. They possess a perfect mix of "all business" with warmth and charm. They are an ideal team for the DC market. We are totally pleased!
Walt and Mary Chrietzberg
We had a fantastic experience selling our house with this team from Washington Fine Properties. Our house was listed on a Thursday, and we accepted an offer that Monday at our full asking price and without any contingency. I do not believe we would have had the same result from an ordinary agent; this is the A team. Adam Rackliffe, Robert Hryniewicki, Bill Moody and Chris Leary demonstrated impressive marketing strategy and judgement in handling our listing. They were always available for questions, paid close attention to every detail, and put us at ease with the awareness that we were in good hands. I wholeheartedly recommend this team of true professionals.
Chris Leary made our first home-buying experience enjoyable!!! He had our best interest in mind every step of the way. Chris has an outstanding knowledge of real estate in DC and was able to explain the pros and cons of each neighborhood. He expertly walked us through every step of the home-buying process and answered all of our questions, especially important during a multi-offer situation. Since I was out of town for work, Chris even met the inspector at the house and connected us with the right people to make closing painless. I wouldn’t have changed anything about the entire process from beginning to end and feel very confident in recommending Chris to family and friends!
Working with Adam, Chris, Bill and Robert was the absolute best. They made the buying and selling process as simple as possible, and I am so blessed that I had the opportunity to work with them. They were so professional, thorough, knowledgeable, thoughtful and caring throughout the process, and trust me, I was not an easy client. I primarily worked with Adam and then with Chris. I know they both had my best interest at heart, and they treated me as a friend they had known for years versus just another client. There is no way I would have survived the process without them, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They go above and beyond in every step of the process, and it worked! These guys are absolutely amazing!
SIMPLY THE BEST! It's not every day that you find a team that will take care of your home as if it were their own, from its investment and value, to the execution of a perfect setting for sale. Bill, Robert, Christopher, and Adam are truly a rare find in the world of real estate. Not only are they exceptional at what they do, but their passion shows in each facet of the listing. In selling my home they were the right choice! My home sold in 14 days because of the expertise of this team and their business-style approach to the market. I could not have done it without them and am forever thankful!
Bill, Robert, Adam and Chris did an amazing job working to secure our dream home. They know the DC neighborhoods like the back of their hands. I was very impressed with their responsiveness, and always heard back from someone immediately. They were an integral part of my family securing our forever home, and we are so happy we chose them! The team was also responsible for selling our home. They put together a clear timeline for projects and even got a designer to help stage our space with our existing furniture to show well. Our home was sold 5 days after listing.
John and Kelly Frekko
Our first Sunday in the house I was watching the sunset over the mountains and praising our God for His blessings. People are introduced in our lives for a reason. He sent us an Angel, to guide us through this process even though we did this several times before. There is not enough words to express our gratitude and appreciation for making our dream become a reality. You are a person of great character and we continue to wish you the best!
Charles and Dorran Thompson
My wife and I recently bought our first house using the office and working with Christopher Leary. We honestly couldn't have been any happier. Although we looked off and on for 6 months or so, our agent Chris was always extremely patient and would meet us whenever wherever to talk or look at a property. After we made our first offer Chris and the WFP team were there to assist us every step of the way, making us feel comfortable and answering every question or concern we had. One other benefit to using the team was their ability to put us in touch with the absolute best in the business for our mortgage, inspections, and closing. I have heard lots of stories about the stress associated with home buying, but our experience was truly a pleasure. Couldn't recommend the Moody/Hryniewicki team more highly.
Lisa and Patrick Large
Bill Moody and Robert Hryniewicki lead a group of real estate professionals that expertly guided the preparation for, listing of, and eventual sale of our single-family home. The Moody group's unique and personal process brought serious, prepared buyers to our home; which went from market to accepted offer in 4 days. Shepherding the sale until closing, the Moody group ensured events moved smoothly to closing, watching every detail. To say these gentlemen "know" their business is an understatement; they are LEADERS in the business. I would WANT them to represent me.
Marilyn and Kurt Osuch
We worked with Robert, Bill, Adam and Chris on the 2014 sale of our four-bedroom home in Northwest Washington, DC. They are first-rate professionals; it is abundantly clear why they are so highly rated, both locally and nationally. Their deep knowledge of DC and the surrounding areas, extensive experience from having successfully completed so many real estate transactions year in and year out, and incredible work ethic are surely unmatchable. They also take a team approach, bringing in their WFP colleagues, as well as partners and vendors, as needed, at every key step along the way. They really leave no stone unturned, and everything is done with excellence and the highest standards in mind. Above all, their professionalism — a combination of comprehensive technical knowledge, positive, unflappable attitude, and a willingness to go above and beyond — is what gets results. These guys are a pleasure to work with, and they get the job done. We would recommend them without reservation.
Ken Weber and Stephanie Copeland
The team of William F.X. Moody and Robert Hryniewicki did an excellent job in handling the recent sale of 4980 Hillbrook Lane on behalf of the Reilly Estate. We were impressed with your detailed knowledge and extensive experience in the market area; however, most impressive was your use of your entire team to develop and implement an effective marketing strategy while working closely with us and keeping us fully informed. The team did an excellent job in developing a pricing and marketing strategy, preparing and staging the property for the marketing effort, including referring us to outstanding contractors to assist us in implementing the tasks, preparing very professional marketing materials, and managing the process to provide full market exposure. In each of these cases, the team process worked very well to ensure both that we were fully informed and in agreement with the decisions made and that the process was completed in an effective and timely manner. The team was also very effective in managing the negotiations and the closing process so that objectives of both the buyer and seller were satisfactorily achieved. I would highly recommend you to any of your potential clients.
John Gardner representative of the Reilly Estate
We could not have been happier with Robert, Bill, Adam, Chris and their team. From start to finish, they were professional, ethical and smart. Selling your house is never easy, but they made it seem that way for us. They are straightforward and open about everything from setting the price to preparing your home to the negotiations. They don't make promises they can't keep but they keep the promises they make. With their help, we were able to sell our house in days — and we got above asking price. Of course, there is no guarantee that will be your experience but know that you will be in excellent hands with them!
Henry Schuster and Sandra Huckaby
William, Robert and their great team have successfully sold our Washington, DC, house in relatively difficult market conditions. I was impressed by their professionalism from the outset. They were always available, dedicated and focused on our mandate. More importantly, they are excellent listeners who have demonstrated a rare ability to adapt to market conditions, to our needs, to our timing and even to our 12-hour time difference. I strongly recommend them to anyone willing to sell real estate in the DC region.
Franz Le Lesle
If you are looking for the most knowledgeable, hands-on, responsive, professional, creative team to represent you... look no further. Bill, Robert and Adam sold our home quickly and for a great price. The whole process was seamless. The marketing package and sales outreach were stellar, and the feedback we received after each showing was very helpful. I highly recommend this team whether you are buying or selling a home.
Woody and Elizabeth Brewer
Thank you for the professionalism, knowledge of home presentation and effective pricing strategy in selling my home. I had previously worked with another real estate company and had no offer during the 90-day contract. Within 60 days of working with your team the home was re-listed and sold for 98% of the asking price. Regular reports on internet activity and showings gave me peace of mind and let me know you were working toward our common goal. Your responsiveness to emails and voice mails were nearly immediate, and I appreciated that the answers to my questions often involved immediate action. Your focused and organized plan in selling properties is bar none, and I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your assistance in the future.
Thank you. Your expertise made all the difference!
Dear Bill, Robert, Adam and Chris,
Thanks so much for your help. You guys were always on top of every detail, and I've rarely seen such efficient and professional execution! I knew you guys were great, but you definitely exceeded my expectations. I'm sure I'll be back in a few years when I'm ready to upsize again!
They found me my perfect house!
You could call it “serendipity,” “the stars aligning,” or simply “meant to be,” but do not kid yourself, finding the perfect house requires great experience, analysis, knowing your market and your client, and having great connections.
From the moment I sat down with Bill Moody, Robert Hryniewicki and Adam Rackliffe, to tell them, very specifically, what I was looking for in a home (an area bounded by exact streets, lots of light, parking, a feeling of spaciousness but not a big house, a nice garden but not too big, and a front hall where people could hang out); through going under contract (ten days after we met); to final closing on my dream house; I had a wonderful time. And, most amazingly of all, they delivered!
I put myself completely in the hands of Bill, Robert and Adam and their fabulous team (Chris and Kevin), and I felt carried and guided. They advised, negotiated and personally walked me through the entire process of listening, finding, going under contract and closing on my dream house. The process was actually fun — hard to believe, I know, but it was.
I cannot imagine having been treated better. Buying a house is terrifying at some level but I never felt daunted or fearful because I knew I had the best possible team.
We quickly became “friends for life” and now, in the throes of remodeling, when I should be in a state of stress and panic, I just remind myself how smoothly this wonderful state of affairs all came to pass, thanks to Bill, Robert and Adam and to their awesome team.
Thank you for the guidance and experience that you shared with us as we prepared to sell our home. It was uniquely helpful, resulting in a successful sale.
Your approach to marketing our home was an awakening experience for me, superior in its difference from other realtors that I have utilized in the past for other properties. Within a whirlwind of talent, you put together a photographic team to capture our house at its finest and generate a sales brochure and internet presentation that inspired many other realtors hungry to add our property to their inventory for a possible sale.
This was a learning experience for me, realizing that all sellers should select their listing agent based upon how brilliantly the agent is able to market and promote their property especially because their property needs to be attractive to buyers and other realtors for a sale to take place. The sales record is nice, but sellers need to understand how the sale takes place and how the record is achieved and what the listing agent does to promote the sale and make it happen. Your marketing was brilliant, dynamic and effective, and it brought many realtors and buyers to our home.
I especially liked the personal showings by appointment only with no lockbox out front to invite who knows what into our house. Your team’s professional, experienced and dedicated attention contributed greatly to the sale of our home. You made the difference and set a new standard for anyone who wishes to be successful in your industry!
Ken & Christine Williams
Dear Bill, Robert, Adam, Chris, and Kevin,
We can't thank you enough for all of the hard work and sound advice you've provided us over the course of both buying and selling our homes.
As someone who is in a service business, I know how difficult it is to get all of the pieces right, but you guys truly have figured out the secret sauce. From Kevin's polite and constant attentiveness (I'm still perplexed as to how our calls/emails get answered so quickly even on off hours) to Chris' marketing genius to Bill, Robert, and Adam's sound advice and vast understanding of the market; you have it all covered! I strive to emulate in my own business the service model and professional team you've created.
We appreciate that you took the time to truly understand what it was we were looking for in a new home. We expected the move from Dupont to Cleveland Park to be a big transition for us, but after just a few months, we can tell you it already feels like home. We never would have been able to get this home without your guidance and help! Who would have thought buying a house while in Scotland could have been made so easy...
Your guidance and patience on the sell side was even more valuable! Through a perplexing and changing market environment, Bill, Robert, and Adam, you were always the voice of reason. Your different personalities and perspectives really helped show us both sides of every argument, which ultimately led us to become more informed and reasonable sellers. Despite probably a record-breaking number of showings for a listing that was nowhere near your most expensive, we were never made to feel as though we were a burden and were always made to feel as if we were your most important and largest client. This last part is truly unique and really made a lasting impression on us ... don't ever change that about your business ... it's what keeps people coming back!
We will always be grateful for your help and for holding our hands through some of the biggest decisions of our adult life.
However we can help spread the word about your team and WFP, please don't hesitate to ask!
We look forward to having you guys over in the Spring ... if it ever gets here!
All the best,
Matt, Hallie, & Emory Offen
Dear Robert, Adam, Chris and Bill,
It has been a true pleasure to work with you! We never expected to have this process completed in such a short window. With so many moving parts and high-pressure scenarios, we trusted we were always in good hands with WFP, and you did not let us down!
We could not be happier with the outcome and wanted to extend our most sincere gratitude and thanks for all the hard work and dedication your team showed to Lisa and me. We always felt like we were your most important clients even though we are sure you have many others to deal with.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You guys are the best!!
Adam Maynard and Lisa Hayes
Dear Adam, Bill and Robert:
Thank you so much for the professional guidance you provided us during our home search. Your team's vast real estate knowledge and the one-on-one attention we received carried us through our huge decision to become first-time home buyers and landing a property that we are absolutely thrilled with! Your guidance in matching our price level and current needs and wants in a home allowed for an extremely efficient house hunt. We were able to find our home in about two weeks of research...and one day of house showings! Additionally, your advising paid off in the negotiations, as we were able to outbid six competitors and still buy our home in our budget and 3% under its appraised value.
Adam was terrific in his day-to-day support, always responsive to our questions, rearranging his schedule to accommodate us, and providing key advice on drafting our successful offer. Coupled with Robert's valuable strategic and financial input, we truly had a fantastic team of real estate professionals on our side. We are thrilled to be in our new house...a great home and a great investment.
Thank you, WFP!
Daniel Fody and Kristin Kafka
In 2006, Robert Hryniewicki at Washington Fine Properties helped me find and buy the perfect Washington, DC, condo. Seven years later when it came time to sell and find something bigger, Robert was the first call I made.
Robert Hryniewicki, Adam Rackliffe, Bill Moody and the entire WFP team made selling my place as easy as it could possibly be. They aggressively marketed it to just the right people, and we had multiple offers within just a few days.
At the same time they were working to sell my condo, they were working with us to find our new home. They actually took the time to get to know us, and get a true sense of who we were and what we were looking for. They were not simply interested in us buying a house. They wanted us to find a home. The perfect home. And we did.
I never truly appreciated how important a good realtor is until I saw first-hand, as both a buyer and a seller, the incredible difference it can make. Robert, Adam, Bill and the Washington Fine Properties team made that difference for me, and I could not recommend them more.
Hello Bill, Adam, Robert and Team,
Thank you seems so small a statement to adequately reflect the magnitude of the task that was put on you which, you performed with competence, efficiency and a gentle hand!
We have rented, renovated and bought properties on three continents, so we came to you with a clear view of what we wanted in a difficult market. Added to your challenge was that we began the search from a long distance and arrived in Washington, DC, with only a few days to accomplish the task. This made for a challenging experience, which you handled with grace under pressure.
You patiently introduced us to numerous properties in order to understand the market. Because of your vast experience, you were able to understand our needs and introduce us to a property which at the time was only a shell. After a long and arduous transatlantic financial process involving bankers, builders and designers, it was this shell that would eventually become our beautiful home.
Your continued knowledgeable involvement in directing all aspects of the process made the entire transaction possible.
The service you provided was nothing short of exceptional. It was such a privilege working with you and we are very grateful.
Markus and Maple Adams-Krygier
Dear Adam, Bill and Robert,
I just wanted to thank you and your entire team for a very successful and swift house hunt.
As you know, we were on a tight time schedule, with only one weekend to find a property.
From the start, you totally got the brief and had lined up 16 potential properties for us to view on the first day. Your office was always a pleasure to deal with - emails were very quickly responded to and no telephone call ever went to voicemail, quite an achievement in this day and age! We appreciate too that Adam made himself available to us for the entire weekend.
Your professionalism and knowledge of the market made the entire process, from first offer to closing, so easy.
We'd totally recommend WFP - and will definitely come straight back to you if we ever need to buy or sell in the area again.
I can't thank you enough.
Very best wishes,
Dear Robert, Bill, Adam and Chris:
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent job that you all did in listing and selling my house in record time and closing within 30 days. Your grasp of the architectural details of my home certainly impressed me, and your overall knowledge of the market and my neighborhood was reassuring that you and your firm would accurately represent my home. I felt very comfortable and confident. I have myself been involved in different capacities of real estate for many years and found that you and your team, i.e., Bill, Adam, Chris and Kevin, were the most competent, knowledgeable, thorough, and professional during the entire process. While I was out of town, you kept me totally informed by communicating all information. Amazing!
Thank you so much for everything that you did. and I highly recommend you and your firm to anyone selling or buying a home. You all are magnificent!
Thank you so much for getting us the house we were looking for and, ultimately, the home we'll raise our kids in! It's so comforting to have no regrets: We know we made the right decision to buy this house and we sincerely believe we were lucky enough to get it because we made the decision to work with your team.
We were impressed with our first meeting with Robert and Adam; they were prepared, they were professional and they were obviously familiar with the market and the neighborhoods. They listened to our needs and wants, were respectful of our time and the level of effort we could put into our search and most importantly, when we found the house we knew we wanted, they gave us all of the information we needed to make an educated offer under tight timelines. Adam was great – I can't tell you how appreciative I am of his level of interest in our search, his responsiveness to phone calls and emails and his courteous and professional demeanor at all of our meetings.
Bill, Robert, Chris and Adam,
You did it! Thanks so much for making the sales process relatively effortless. From the first meeting, armed with a wealth of data, it was clear your team understood the Georgetown market, where my home fit within that market, and what it was going to take to sell it. I appreciate Chris' marketing efforts and his attention to detail, Adam's constant contact regarding showings and feedback, Robert's endless availability and willingness to show my home, and Bill's firm negotiations when it came to closing on the sale. A fully priced, non-contingent, all-cash offer was more than I could have hoped for!
The team approach to real estate is clearly the way to go. I can't imagine one person doing it all to the level of service that you all gave me. I'll certainly be in touch next time I buy or sell a home.
Dear Bill and Robert,
Thank you for doing such a tremendous job in helping us sell our $2 million penthouse. Unfortunately, we had a false start when we initially hired the wrong broker. It was a disappointing 6 months with little traffic and no offers.
When you and WFP took over it was day and night. Your approach, your process, and your network of high-end buyers clearly made the difference. The traffic picked up immediately. We had more showings in 4 weeks than we did in 6 months. In addition to a great marketing campaign, the buyer was brought to us by another WFP broker.
Your strong follow-up and communication were really appreciated. We always knew where we stood. You guided us through the process intelligently and thoughtfully.
This was a real partnership that worked for all parties involved.

Robert, Bill, Adam and Chris,
My wife and I are extremely grateful for all of your hard work, guidance, and professionalism in helping us find a new home in Cleveland Park!
We first met Robert in passing almost 18 months ago while searching for a place to move to from New York. He showed us one of his listings and while we wound up renting an apartment for our first year living in DC, Robert stood apart from the litany of real estate agents we met that week. In our very short meeting, Robert's straight-forward honesty, knowledge of the market and focus on his client's needs came across so distinctly that we almost put in an offer on an apartment that was clearly not a good fit. So, when we decided to purchase a home almost a year later we turned to each other and said, "Who was that great agent we met at that European-feeling apartment on Q Street? Robert... Robert H-something!!!"
Needless to say, our hunch was spot on. Robert, Bill, Adam and Chris made the purchasing process an absolute pleasure! The personalized service, impartial guidance, interactive online portal, careful data analysis, and unparalleled knowledge of the market turned us from uncertain first-time home buyers into highly confident market experts well-equipped to approach any potential transaction decisively. From showing us properties, to back and forth bidding, and all the way through post-closing, Robert and his team covered all the little details impeccably. In the end, we are 100% positive that the WFP team enabled us to get more for our money by acting confidently and closing quickly.
We will undoubtedly be coming back to you if we ever decide to sell our lovely new home and will be recommending your services to all of our friends and family in the meantime.
Thank you so much and look forward to being neighbors,
Mat and Cory Levine
