Pat Kennedy - Your Washington, DC Real Estate Connection


What's For Sale in DC's Chevy Chase: December 2013

Chevy Chase is a popular neighborhood that straddles the boundaries of the District of Columbia and Montgomery County in Maryland.  And it has a rich variety of architecture.  Many of the older homes were ordered from turn-of-the-last-century Sears Roebuck catalogs.  Then came trusty center hall brick colonials - the neighborhood cliche house.

If you're looking for a house in DC's popular Chevy Chase, you have to really be on your toes.  There are only 8 active listings in the entire neighborhood, and 5 of the 13 homes that are under contract flew off the shelf in less than a week.  

If you are looking for a home in Chevy Chase, we're expecting an uptick in new listings after the first of the year.  But it will be important to stay on top of your search, and the help of a good agent will be even more important.  

If you are planning a move to or from the Washington, DC metro area, please call me (202-549-5167) or email me ( before you make any important real estate decisions.

Growing up there I know every nook and cranny.  And my grandmother and I would walk all the way to the post office up on Connecticut Avenue in Bethesda from Jocelyn Street!

Hello Pat,  I remember the area well being in the area lots in the 80's working for a company that had locations in the area I would have to visit once every 5 weeks.

Thanks for your comments!  And yeah, there are quite a few Sears Roebuck houses in the District.  There were bungalows that were especially popular, and they are distinguised usually by very interesting woodwork holding up the roofs of their front porches.
