R. & N.S.
“When we made the decision to downsize late in 2018, one of the things we worried about most (besides downsizing!) was selling our home of 25 years in the “off-season” and without too much effort on our part. We need not have worried. With our home well-maintained but needing a little bit of work to make it market ready. We identified about a dozen of the listed items to accomplish immediately, before the first sign went up. At Chris and Gordon’s suggestion, within a week to ten days we were ready to go with a “Coming Soon” sign (a strategy recommended by Gordon) to get the ball rolling. Chris and Gordon continued to work with us until closing (including multiple trips to check on repairs or with papers to be signed) as if they lived just around the corner, and we closed on the sale. We can’t recommend HayesWood Homes’ services highly enough.”

We have worked with HayesWood Homes three separate times to buy and sell homes. Why? They are dedicated experts with a unique ability to make us feel as though we were their only clients. They listened and knew just how to position us to make a sale or secure the house we wanted. It is rare to find people who have been in the real estate business this long are is still just as passionate and enthusiastic.

It's been about a month since our purchase and move. We wanted to thank you so much for all your help. We love this house more and more every day. Hope to see you soon.
...Gordon dealt with us in the most professional and straightforward manner. My sisters and I found him to be extremely responsive... and he advised us clearly and well through the closing. I think he really understood this was more than a business deal for us. My sisters and I feel he did an outstanding job.

We are finally starting to settle into the new house now and love it as much as we thought we would. We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent service you provided us throughout the entire process. This move and the purchase has been a major life change for us, and you provided a steady hand throughout that made every step so much easier for us.
If you ever need a reference for any potential clients, Amber and I would be happy to highly recommend you.
Dennis & Lynn C.
Hello neighbors! I would like to strongly recommend the two realtors who helped us secure a contract to sell our house without ever putting it on the market! They are Gordon Wood and Chris Hayes of McEnearney Associates.
Dennis and I have known Gordon for about 20 years. He handled the purchase of our current home 14 years ago and also helped us sell Dennis's mother's house. With almost 30 years of real estate experience, Gordon knows the Alexandria market very well. Using a "coming soon" strategy, he spread the word about our house in Marlboro Estates among his fellow realtors. That way, when prospective buyers came over to take a look, they didn't expect perfection and felt lucky to see the house early. The second couple to come through made us a good offer on the house, so we will not need to paint or repair anything.
Should your house need minor repairs, painting, etc. to prepare it for sale, Chris has a reliable, experienced handyman who can take care of almost any issue. And, to top if off, Gordon and Chris are even willing to help move your furniture! They came over yesterday and moved about 10 pieces of furniture, including several heavy items, from all three levels of our house into the garage for eventual donation.
John and Denise
Chris met all of our expectations. He worked very hard to find the right house we wanted. Also, the sale of our house went very smoothly and professionally.
You have now handled 4 moves for us.
I have had the pleasure of calling Chris both a friend and a trusted real estate advisor for over a decade. Chris has been with me every step of the way from buying my first home, a condo, when I was a young working professional to our first family home when I wed my husband. This past year we turned to Chris again as we sought to buy our family’s dream home – a place where we look forward to watching our son grow up and create many family memories in our home for years to come. Chris was there every step of the way with seasoned real estate advice while serving as a sounding board for all our questions, ideas and helping to turn our dreams in to reality.
So proud of you both and appreciate your professionalism in our transactions. Always top notch. Way to go guys!
We still love our home - thanks Chris Hayes!
Tom and Lysa
Tom and I are getting settled into our new home here in Delaware and loving the new environment! Before too much time passes and we forget all about you fine folks over in Northern Virginia, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your wonderful guidance and professionalism throughout our whole selling process.
As you know, we contacted you early in the game before we had even found a place to live, and I remember thinking how responsive and helpful you were, even back then, giving us tips on what projects to take on to get the house ready, and how best to stage it. Even during all of those months while we waited to get a delivery date on our new house, you stayed in touch without being intrusive and gathered the needed information to help us price it correctly. It all paid off, as we certainly couldn't have had a better (or faster) outcome - getting our price and then some!
Thank you Gordon, for being the consummate professional. You were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. You may certainly give our name as a reference to any prospective clients.
If you're ever looking for the best possible real estate team with years of experience, consider Hayeswood Homes. I am a first time home buyer with very little knowledge about the home buying process. All throughout the negotiations, they were extremely responsive and took the time to answer my questions and walk me through the process. I was really nervous about purchasing my first home at a young age, but with their help, I felt comfortable and at ease. I recommend Hayeswood Homes for all of your home buying needs. Awesome team and I cant thank them enough!
Hayeswood Homes went above and beyond - managing all the repairs in a very difficult situation and it went smoothly.
Exceeded expectations. A tough sale and they kept me so calm. They are just the kind of people you want as your agents. I don't think it would have been possible to improve on my experience. Fabulous!
