About Christy Hertel

Ten years ago I entered into real estate sales after being an interior designer for 25 years. My love of houses old and new led me to a career in interior design and real estate sales was a natural progression. I know the importance of a close trusting relationship with my clients and whether representing the seller or the buyer I am personally involved in every aspect of the transaction from the first call to the closing table. My design background enables me to bring a unique perspective and vision to a client buying or selling a home. I like to think I can see all the potential in a property. Vendors I have worked with over the years can help a seller prepare a house for the market or help a buyer make their new purchase a dream home. I take a multi-faceted marketing approach when presenting properties to Realtors and the public via a heavy investment in the internet and MLS, professional photography with integrated floor plans, print ads, public and broker open houses, effective email marketing, and social media exposure. Through my years of working with clients in both real estate and interior design I know the importance of customer service – following through and making the process as stress free as possible. This approach has led to a referral based business. My family and I have lived in the historic village of Waterford, Virginia for 15 years which helped me to hone my skills as an expert in historic properties. I have a 16 year old who attends St. James School in Hagerstown, MD. and my husband is a partner in Commercial Group Realty in Dulles Virginia. I look forward to working with you to find the perfect property, or to sell your current home.
