When it comes to selling your home, we take great pride in making the process to start a relationship a simple one.
No upfront cost - Our Gordon James Mint service fronts the cost of services and repairs that can increase the value of your home. From staging to painting to cosmetic renovations, no payment will be collected until your home sells. No upfront cost, no interest charged ever.
Informing the seller - We work closely with our technology partners to guide our clients through the process by providing data and insights. While the client ultimately makes any final decision, we believe our role is to help them make an informed decision, by teaching them about opportunities they hadn’t previously considered.
Reduce cost - Unlike most brokerage firms, our business started as a property management company. This allowed us to develop a deep understanding of repairs and build a vast network of vetted contractors and service providers. Levering our network of industry professionals and in-house maintenance to help review, assess, and perform home inspection related repairs, at an average cost savings of 23%
Impress buyers - In the modern age of technology, prospective buyers are inundated with online marketing material. To help engage buyers, we provide custom designed, physical portfolios, for each property we sell. This provides the prospective buyer with a tangible takeaway, that includes pictures of the property, floor plans, and information about the neighborhood.
Informing buyers - On average, prospective home buyers tour 8 homes, before making an offer. This can make it difficult to buyers to remember specific details about a home. Providing floorplans is crucial to enable buyers to make an informed decision and help them envision their future layout.
Floorplans Matterport 3D - 3D walk-throughs are captured for every property we sell, using the Matterport 3D camera and software. This allows more prospective buyers to view your property, and is ideal for our international client base.

We begin our partnership by preparing and pricing your property for rent. Gordon James Realty performs a detailed market analysis, recommending the best possible rental price based on current market conditions, the amenities of the property, and its current condition. Additionally, we may recommend repairs and improvements that would increase your return on investment. With our knowledge of the Washington, D.C. rental market and our knack for competitive pricing, we have filled vacant rental properties in as few as 5 days.
We design polished, customized advertising and marketing campaigns featuring professional, wide-angle photographs that highlight your property’s strengths and amenities. To expose your property to the largest pool of qualified tenants possible, we publish an advertisement for your property on 13 different targeted websites. We typically respond within 15 minutes to prospective tenants and schedule showings at times that are best suited for them.
Once interested tenants have seen your property, they fill out an online application. We then check the applicants’ credit histories, conduct thorough criminal background checks, perform employment verifications, and consult prior landlord references to ensure we find the most qualified tenant for your property. This entire process is facilitated by best-in-class software to guarantee speed and accuracy in our reports.
We handle the move-in and move-out process from start to finish. First, we inspect and document the property’s initial condition using photographs or video. Then, tenants complete and sign a Statement of Condition form verifying the home’s state at move-in time. When tenants move out, we conduct another inspection, document any damages tenants are liable for, and charge them for the required repairs.
Your tenants have access to their unique online account where they can view past, current, and future charges. To ensure compliance with D.C. law, after they make payments, they can print a receipt for their records.
We offer two marketing and leasing package options to fit our owners’ needs.

We work for property owners living all over the world as members of the military or foreign service and for local clients who simply want to shed the time-consuming work of managing their rentals.
Our property management clients own single-family homes, multi-family homes and condominium units in the DC metro area, including the district, Arlington, Alexandria and Silver Spring, MD.

It is a pleasure to work with a company and an individual who knows the business well, makes the closing easy and answers emails, cell calls and texts.
When I decided to sell, they worked tirelessly to coordinate the viewings and then work with me across a 5 hour time difference on the sale.
Jenna got me an offer on my home within 3 weeks of listing! I felt hopeless trying to sell my home for a few months with a former agent, something was not right...
I've worked with a few of their agents on a good number of transactions and I can say this, they're the most knowledgeable and driven group I've worked with.
My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the Gordon James' "life cycle" services. They were generous, informative, and attentive.
Was able to get a bit above my target price which was a huge plus and they were also able to negotiate an expedited close. Overall, happy with my experience.
