Two dynamic agents on the Bediz Group, just voted #1 Real Estate Team by the Washington Blade, are going the extra mile this spring. Suzanne Des Marais, an Associate Broker and Bloomingdale resident for almost two decades, lists yet another grande dame in her home turf. Medy Monarch, a five star agent and classy lady all around, is in it for the long haul in a 39-mile walk to raise money for breast cancer.
Active listing inventory remains extremely tight in this highly desirable community and location. The limited availability means that prices have increased significantly in the past few years. Well renovated row homes have recently sold for as much as $1.4 million. The average price for a single family house in the neighborhood is currently around $800,000. Condo prices in Bloomingdale are averaging around $500,000. Because of the wide array of lot and home sizes, conditions, and amenities, accurately pricing a home for sale can be extremely tricky.
Suzanne Des Marais, an Associate Broker with the Bediz Group, is an experienced real estate professional with extensive knowledge of the Bloomingdale neighborhood. She has been consistently selling in Bloomingdale since 2001 and became a resident in 2004. The key to Suzanne's success in Bloomingdale has been her understanding of constantly changing market dynamics. She has been sharing weekly neighborhood real estate stats with the community via the closed local listserv since the early 2000s. With a background as an artist, Suzanne's approach to marketing is highly visual, which is crucial to presenting properties in DC's highly competitive real estate market.
Suzanne's most recent listing in Bloomingdale is 29 Bryant St NW, at the top of the neighborhood, close to the upcoming McMillan Reservoir Development. This home has unusually spacious rooms, including two master suites, as well as abundant outdoor living space. Walk right out from the third floor to enjoy the expansive roof deck with pergola. The back yard is private and lovingly landscaped. The front porch features a charming porch swing from which to watch the world go by. High end details include an elevator, a steam shower, zoned HVAC, a central vacuum system and Thermador appliances. The lower level is separately metered and includes its own kitchen, full bath and laundry. The home was offered at $1,199,900 and is now under contract.
The entire Bediz Team is Racing for the Cure on May 7, 2016, in DC. Although not as lengthy a walk, the cause is equally worthy (and probably a lot more fun!). Click here to support the Bediz Team: Komen Race for the Cure.
Medy says, "whether a walk or run, long or short, supporting those fighting cancer is always worth the going the extra mile. Every dollar contributed is appreciated."
