Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We were looking to buy a specific home when we contacted The Deevy Group. We chose them because of trust and their knowledge of working with older homes. We were most pleased with our experience, especially of Joy's representation of us in the sale. It was an estate sale which can be difficult. She was very knowledgeable. There was no high pressure tactics from her, which we had with previous agents, instead, she gave us our space to make decisions. We were very satisfied and extremely likely to recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. In fact, I have already given out Joy's information to someone who is tentatively looking to buy.

When we searched on-line, we were looking to find an agent who had a record of success in selling high-end luxury homes. We chose The Deevy Group because of the trust and confidence that Joy displayed during our initial interview with various real estate agents. We were most pleased with the team who staged our home and the sound advice Joy provided, in terms of setting the price based on market surveys of past sales in our neighborhood and local market. In this highly competitive market, Joy and her team of agents provided Chris and I with expert advice to get our house marketed and sold with ease. The expert advice she provided on staging and setting the right price were invaluable. While competing homes in our neighborhood lingered on the market unsold, our home sold almost immediately!!! Thanks to Joy, we can move forward with retirement and plans to build a new dream retirement home in coastal N.C.! We were very satisfied and highly recommend Joy, and The Deevy Group, to those who want a full-service agency to market and sell their homes stress-free! We would extremely likely to recommend The Deevy Group to my former neighbors whose home still sits on the market unsold.

Of the agents I interviewed, Joy was the only one who did her homework, studied the comps, and had a projected realistic range for the selling price before meeting with me. She is from the community and is very familiar with the surrounding areas. She listened to me and promptly addressed all my questions and concerns. She also made very specific recommendations about the actions I should take prior to listing the house for sale and what to do to get the house sold. As a result, the house went under contract in 13 days and for the full asking price! The sale went smoothly, all the paper work was done ahead of time, and mailed back. Furthermore, I had moved out of the area by the settlement date and was not required to be in town for the closing. It was far easier than I had expected. I recommend The Deevy Group to anyone who wants a quick sale at a fair price, with a minimum of negotiating with a potential buyer.

Choosing Joy was the best decision we made when we decided to sell our home. Joy sold our home well above asking price in 2 days! To start, her comps were right on target. She brought in stagers that made our house look amazing and cleaners to tidy everything up before open house. We couldn't believe that fifty families showed up and another online site even gave our place a "hot house" designation. We heard great feedback and had offers come in immediately. But the best part about working with Joy and her team is the level of service. Selling was especially complicated for our family because we had already moved to a different city. Joy answered all our questions promptly, had the means for us to digitally sign all our documents, and mailed us the final documents for closing so that we didn't have to be there in person. I would definitely recommend Joy to all my friends who are looking to buy or sell in Arlington. Thank you!

Joy Deevy owns the brand of trustworthy! As first time buyers, we were told by very close friends that we must use Joy to help us find a home because she was the absolute best. Joy was their realtor for buying a home in Northern VA and selling it when they moved to TX. They raved about her, and we couldn't believe that a realtor could really make that much of a difference in one's life until we had our experience with Joy. Joy spent well into two years helping us search, bid on a house, search and do more searching for just the perfect home. Just when we thought we were going to have to settle, Joy pulled out all stops to get us a chance at a home on the exact street where we wanted to live. During the entire two year timeframe, Joy made us confident buyers, and she was beyond patient.
We love Joy's humor and her ability to shoot it to you straight. She will tell you exactly what you need to do to get the home that you want. It was a great time house hunting with lots of laughs and absolutely zero tears! We actually miss house hunting with Joy. We can't tell you home many homes we visited, and Joy carefully inspected each one as we went along. We felt like we could take the backseat, and Joy would point us in the right direction. We now not only have a fantastic realtor but a great friend too! Obviously we highly recommend Joy Deevy - you will not find better as she is the BEST!

Joy impressed us from the first time we met her. She is extremely professional, very experienced, and kept current as the market changed from when we first met with her to when we listed our house. We followed all of her recommendations and received 14 offers in 3 days and sold 29,000 over list price. Everything was seamless. She responded right away to any questions we had either via phone or email and she personally was present at our open house and at our closing which was important to us. Michael her transaction coordinator made sure every detail was taken care of the entire time and would let us know exactly what we needed to do. I would highly recommend the Joy Deevy team and if I had the chance I would also use this team again. We were more than satisfied.

Our experience is that any realtor can conduct a market assessment and list a house. However, it takes a special realtor to see what a property could be in the eyes of the market, and to then invest the time and effort with the seller to elevate the property to this next level. If you actively seek to maximize your returns, Joy Deevy is the one with whom to partner for your listing.

A FLAWLESS transaction!
We met with Joy in early April to explore maybe, possibly, perhaps selling our house rather than renting it out while we are overseas. We were so impressed by her knowledge, experience and energy that we signed a listing agreement that day, and the house went on the market three weeks later . . . and four days after that, it sold. With eight offers. For a significant sum over asking.
What made this possible was Joy's all-around excellence in pricing, positioning, marketing and negotiating. She knows market dynamics inside and out, she knows how to draw in potential buyers, and she knows how to move potential buyers to action. Everything she discussed in our first meeting came to pass. Additionally, she has a dedicated transaction support adviser who kept on top of all the paperwork needed to close the transaction even though we were 4000 miles away. A potentially complicated situation became totally headache-free.
We could not have hoped for any aspect of the deal to go better and would recommend Joy to anyone looking to close a real estate deal on the most favorable terms possible in the moment.
