Spilling the tea

Phrase    1. Telling the truth about someone or something; sharing a secret


Pssst... Buyers

We're spilling the tea on DC real estate!

With so much DC real estate information crafted as promotion, advertising and sales jargon, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction when you’re buying a home.

We’ll spill the tea on everything from development projects to property evaluation and purchase strategy.

Dear Sellers...

A crack in the teacup opens a path to lost profit

Presentation & pricing are everything when you’re selling a house, so we tell it like it is. We won’t inflate the pricing estimate for your home just to get the listing. We won’t assure you that your puce polka-dot sofa and collection of wall-mounted skulls are terrific presentation features. We’ll point our noses at odors, stir up flaws and other issues that will diminish your net proceeds, and tell you how they can be addressed. We tell it like it is so you realize a bigger profit. And that’s the tea.

(With apologies to W. H. Auden)

Seller Advantage - DC Real Estate


  • PREPARING TO LIST involves selection of a listing agent who will guide you through the steps to preparing and listing your home for sale. The Isaacs Team will help you decide which improvements and steps are worthwhile and which will not net you a greater sales price. We'll walk your home together and our team will provide you with recommendations.
  • PRICING a home to sell quickly and at the highest number requires market knowledge, full analysis of comparatives, understanding of hyper-local pricing trends and strategies, along with a little "spidey" sense.  As us for a free market analysis of your home.
  • MARKETING your home with a combination of technology, social media and email campaigns, as well as traditional methods gives your listing the greatest exposure.
  • PACKAGING your home is the first step in the marketing process. We'll evaluate your home's appeal to it's target buyer and help create the presentation most likely to generate offers. To learn more about 'packaging' a home for sale, read our Property Packaging, 3 P's For Sellers and Staging articles in the tools section of this site.
  • NEGOTIATION involves more than agreement on your home price. Terms can be equally important in a DC real estate contract. We are seasoned negotiators who assist you in evaluating offer terms and help you negotiate a contract that is most advantageous for you.  We put your interests first.
  • TRANSACTION MANAGEMENT is part of our job. We oversee the process from start to finish, ensuring that it is the smoothest possible experience for you.
  • DELIVERING the home for settlement ensures that staging has been carefully removed, the home is in the condition your contract requires and the buyer's final walk-through will be as pleasant and issue-free as possible.
  • SETTLEMENT is the final step in your transaction. We're there with you, working with title, the buyer's lender and selling agent to effect a smooth and issue-free closing.

Buyer Advantage - DC Real Estate


  • BUYERS aren't secondary clients to The Isaacs Team. We built our business  around buyers. While most agents focus on listings and acquire buyers through listing inquiries and open houses, we reach out to you directly through our unique website. Realestateinthedistrict.com provides the market insights, education, tools and transparency that have long been missing from the agent/buyer relationship. We provide our buyers with proven strategies for every market condition, designed to help you win in a seller's market and make the most of a buyer's market.
  • PRICING your offer requires extensive market knowledge, a keen understanding of the comparatives and market trends in each micro-neighborhood. While listing agents focus on the particular area they market, we are in and out of homes throughout the District on a daily basis with our buyers. This not only gives us an advantage when we're listing a home, but a distinct advantage when helping our buyers decide how much to pay for a home.
  • PACKAGING your offer is as important as  pricing an offer. Our decades of experience and unique strategies help you present the offer most likely to be accepted by the seller of the home you've chosen to purchase.
  • PURCHASING NEW CONSTRUCTION is very different than buying a resale home. Read about it on our Buying New Construction page in the Tools section of this site. We offer the benefit of over a decade of training and experience in selling, marketing and managing new construction projects for developers. Our unique insight into the products and process adds value to your new home purchase.
  • TRANSACTION MANAGEMENT is part of our job. We oversee the process from start to finish, ensuring that it is the smoothest possible experience for you.
  • SETTLEMENT and DELIVERY are important final steps in the purchase process. We'll guide you through them and support you as you become new homeowners!
