Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I’ve never bought or sold a home before, but as Trustee I was responsible for selling a home that was part of my relative’s Trust. Joy came highly recommended from a good friend, and I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of the business. Initially I felt a little overwhelmed, but Joy immediately put me at ease and made the process so much less stressful than I thought it was going to be. She and her team were responsive and helpful every step of the way. They worked around my schedule and took care of certain things for me, so I wouldn't have to take time off from work. There were multiple issues with the house and many decisions that needed to be made, and Joy's guidance in these matters was extremely helpful and appreciated. The house sold in just a few days and well above asking price, so I believe her advice was spot-on. Her easy-going and supportive manner through the entire process made her such a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and will definitely use her again when I’m ready to buy my own home.

The Deevy Group is amazing and we loved working with Anne Ellery! She cared so much that I felt like I was out house hunting with a sister or family member. She pointed out every issue, good and bad. It never felt like she was looking to make a sale and move on. Anne is the utmost professional and a really good person. I cannot recommend her enough. We now know that a good deal is out there and with the right Realtor, you can find it. Thanks Anne!

I couldn't have been happier with the way the sale went! Joy did a great job of guiding us through the process to actually get it on the market. Once it was on the market I couldn't believe the results - a contract in 24 hours and closing in three weeks. I didn't even know real estate could move that fast! A funny story - when Joy said we could anticipate closing by the end of June I told Anthony I think she meant July, and even that was a stretch and would require a contract in the first few weeks. Much to my amazement and Joy's expertise, I couldn't believe the whole process happened in under three weeks. I couldn't have asked for more, and Joy and Michael were incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. Thanks so much to you both!

Your team was outstanding! We really appreciated your quick response to questions and concerns we had along the way! We also appreciated your honesty about our selling and purchase options and your confidence. Thank you so much!

I called The Deevy Group when I was looking to purchase a home in the Washington DC area. Their professionalism and dedication was vastly different from the other realtors I'd been referred to. The gap in knowledge was incredible, but the customer service difference really swayed my decision!
I was really pleased with the hands-on nature of the team and the accessibility of my realtor, Rob Bouknight. With my commitment to the Air Force, I had limited ability to travel to the DC area to house-hunt early. With Rob's help, the different neighborhoods on the DC map grew less cloudy with each conversation and, as a result, the units we visited were exactly what I was looking for.
There is nothing I would have asked for that wasn't accomplished. Honestly, the fact that Rob and the team could anticipate my needs and accomplish them before I asked is an incredible indication of the knowledge and skill level of this group.
I think it bears noting that as a military member my time is often not my own. The fact that Rob made himself so easy to work with and worked around my schedule is a great representation of the qualities I would recommend to anyone looking for a home in the area. You all moved mountains while I was out of the country in order to get this done for me and that cannot be overstated.

We have worked with Joy Deevy and her team to both buy and sell our first home. Her expertise, energy, and advice helped us prepare our house for sale and with great success! We received multiple offers and sold the house in 4 days.... and during the middle of the winter! We consider Joy not only our realtor but also our friend. If you are looking for a house in Old Town/Del Ray/Rosemont, Joy Deevy is the woman to work with! We will definitely work with her in the future.

Being first time home-buyers, we didn't know what to expect, but Joy and Michael made the whole process stress-free. Buying a home in a competitive market worried us, but Joy was able to show us homes within a day of going on the market. She provided us with sound advice, reflected strong negotiation skills, and the experience and knowledge to get us the house we wanted at the price we wanted. Michael kept us up-to-date on important information and responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had. There was little work for us to do, as Joy and Michael scheduled all inspections for us. We just showed up at closing to sign. Joy and Michael were a pleasure to work with and will be highly recommended to our family and friends.
Dan & Roberta B., Buyers
We chose Joy to sell our home in Old Town because she received a glowing recommendation from another family. Joy went above and beyond the call of duty! Without her, things would not have gone as smoothly as they did. We recommend Joy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and we will definitely be using her again!
Kristina & Kyle I., Sellers
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Joy and her team! They were extremely professional, respectful and generous with their advice. I constantly felt they were knowledgeable of the situation and would make sure to put my interests first. 10!!! Joy and Michael were an absolute pleasure to work with. Joy was always prompt, punctual and valued my time. Both Joy and Michael were extremely detail oriented and continued to support, even after settlement.

The bottom line of the message below is that we have been 100% satisfied with the quality and level of service we received from our realtor Joy Deevy. Having both purchased, and now sold a home with her, our expectations were never met, only exceeded! As sure as the azaleas continue their glorious bloom up and down the streets of our area, more and more for sale signs are popping up, and no doubt many of us notice that most of those signs are staying up seemingly longer and longer. As we were making preparations to relocate to Texas our concerns increased as the number of homes that stayed on the market for long periods increased. But, we were set on moving, and so we had to pull the trigger and put our home on the market.
In 2003 when we started looking for a home in this area we worked with Joy Satterfield out of the Coldwell office in Old Town. In truth, we didn't know Joy all that well, and the agency she worked for, Coldwell Banker, would certainly not have been classified as a Beverley Hills expert in the traditional real estate sense. Still, she worked with us, identified the perfect house that would become our home, and helped seal and close the deal. All pretty standard fare for a real estate transaction we think. What was unique about our experience is that Joy used her experience, substantial attention to detail, and incredible organizational skills to navigate the details in what very easily could've become an unpleasant sale and closing experience. In truth, at the time it was sellers market, and Joy very easily could've given us a whole lot less than 100% - we wanted the house, were new to the process, and probably would've been content and none the wiser. But, she didn't, and as a result she earned our trust, our friendship, and the business of other dear friends of ours who have used Joy for both buying and selling homes.
Fast forward to 2008, and some things have changed. We are now a family of 6, Joy Satterfield is now Joy Deevy - having married a wonderful guy - and the real estate market is not quite as sanguine as it was 5 years ago. But 1 thing has not changed, and that is the quality and level of service and expertise our realtor provided us before, during, and in the final stages of the sale. Joy is perfectly attuned to every aspect of the current real estate market, and was knowledgeable about every single detail that would impact the preparation, marketing, and sale of our house. We followed her detailed advice to the letter and could not be happier with the end result: a sold house in 12 days at the price we wanted. If you're in the market for a real estate agent, or if your contract with your current agent is up, we'd strongly encourage you to take a look at Joy Deevy.
