Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
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.

Our experience with The Deevy Group was far above our expectations. Looking back on the entire process we definitely believe Joy was the right choice to market our home. The team was pleasant, well organized, incredibly knowledgeable, had a number of resources to turn to and no one could ask for better communication. It was very difficult for us to get the house ready to be put on the market and Joy empathized and demonstrated the great patients in making this transition.
It was unbelievable the amount of effort she and her team put forth during the process, but the most memorable was when the home inspection came in while we were on vacation. They researched every contractor and obtained the best quote possible in order to rectify the issues from the home inspection.
It was a pleasure to work with The Deevy Group and we are very appreciative of all their hard work to sell our home.

For years now, I had heard friends and acquaintances rave about working with Joy on buying or selling their home. And, having been friends with Joy for many years, I knew that she was not only a great Realtor, but also a top-notch person.
But even while knowing all that going in, I was still blown away by the care, insight and quality of service that Joy, Michael and the rest of the team provided me during the sale of my house. Every last detail (from staging my home for sale to signing the documents at closing) was covered. Every question I had was answered immediately. And when I admittedly freaked out a little bit at the prospect of leaving my home of 13 years, Joy was a thoughtful listener who talked me off the ledge and provided sound advice.
While the level of professionalism that Joy and her team exhibited was extraordinary, it was how much they cared about making me comfortable throughout every step of the process that will stick with me for a long time. I couldn't be more thrilled with how everything went from start to finish.
Rest assured, I will recommend Joy and her team to anyone in the DC area who even hints at a possible move!

Pleasant. Thorough. To the point. Easy to communicate with. Knowledgeable of the market. On top of all the detail, and there were a lot of details to manage. Willingness to listen versus lecture. Professional. Joy and Michael were always available and able to respond promptly. A pleasure to work with through this process.
John E., Seller
I worked with Joy Deevy as both a buyer and seller. Her service and knowledge of the market is second to none. She goes above and beyond to make the buying and selling process as easy as possible. Joy sold my home in four days!
Sarah S., Repeat Buyer & Seller
We chose to work with Joy because she is "the real deal." Joy knows her stuff! More importantly, Joy knows how to communicate the details that we need to know as both sellers and buyers.
Joy made the sale of our condo EASY. She came in and arranged for the staging and pre-marketing. We went on the market on a Thursday night and had three offers at or above asking price within days.
As a direct result of working with Joy, we found that buying a house in North Arlington in this housing market is not easy, but having Joy there to help made it much less painful. Joy was key in creatively negotiating on our behalf. She was also key in advising when it was time to walk away from certain situations. In the end, we were able to get the house of our dreams and at a price better than we thought we would!
Laura and Lou L., Repeat Buyers & Sellers
Joy Deevy got us two offers in 4 days resulting in a sale above the asking price! We'd recommend Joy to anyone who wants to get their home sold! Joy and her team are receptive to questions, attentive to every detail, and highly effective in marketing and negotiating! If not for moving out of the area, we would certainly use Joy again for the purchase of our next home.
Stephanie and Stuart E., Sellers
Joy Deevy and Anne Ellery were awesome to work with! Very professional, attentive and a pleasure to work with. The communication during the process from Joy and Anne was above expectations! An absolute 10! We will be glad to refer any potential clients to sell or purchase a home in the future.
Crissy & Greg P., Buyers & Sellers
Joy Deevy was a lifesaver during our home-buying process. As first-time home buyers, we didn't know anything about the process, but Joy walked us through every step making sure to explain each situation and always giving us options. Her guidance was invaluable, and we truly appreciated her candor, humor, and honesty. Once we identified the home we wanted to purchase, Joy worked around the clock to make sure our offers and other documents were completed as soon as possible, and she always made us feel like we were her number one priority. She worked around our schedules, always kept us informed and helped take the intimidation out of the process. Thanks to the work of Joy and her team, we are now proud owners of our first home, and we couldn't have done it without her!
Christine F., Buyer
Joy Deevy is the best in the business! She is the epitome of professionalism, but she's always easy-going and fun to work with. I've known her for a long time personally, but this was the first time I officially worked with her to sell a home, and I couldn't be happier with how things worked out. Joy is hard-working, diligent, relentless and demanding. She sets a high standard for her work product and the team working around her, and that showed in the way my property was prepared for sale and the interactions with prospective buyers and their agents. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a successful real estate agent to buy or sell a home. My only regret is that I moved somewhere outside her territory and couldn't ALSO use her on the buying end!
