What Our Clients Say About Us
After we successfully bid on a house, she worked tirelessly with us to ensure we understood the documents we were signing and the terms of our bid. She was a true advocate.
And then she turned around and sold the absolute #$%=* out of our old house. She suggested that we place a “Coming Soon” sign on the house and in fact it was that sign that the ultimate buyer spotted and led to them bidding. She worked closely with agents who expressed an interest in buying the house and then managed – fairly and elegantly – a somewhat contentious bidding process to ensure we got the absolute maximum amount we could for our house. (And well over the asking price.)
But Annie’s work did not end there. We had a long period of time between buying our new house / selling our old house and closing on each. Annie was there throughout, an invaluable guide through the many steps – financing, transferring utilities, meeting closing conditions – that arose. Even after closing Annie provided superb support because of a rent-back arrangement that we reached with the buyers of our old house.
We truly cannot think of a single thing that Annie could or should have done differently. She was a great pillar of strength for us, and a superb advocate on our behalf, while also being a pure delight. Her intelligence, wit, and professionalism made an otherwise stressful experience as pleasant as it could possibly be.
We cannot recommend her highly enough.

'Well any realtor could sell your house in this hot market' ... this is probably true but if you want the best price and experience you need to use the team of Kelly Lee and Anne-Marie Finnell.
I interviewed a bevy of realtors from four different agencies. This dynamic duo not only knew of all the most important comps, all the important school data but their optimism and caring to get us the best deal set the tone - THINK BIG. No other team offered us so much support to sell our home - these two women complemented each other with a myriad of ideas.
We went over the yard, garage and each room in the house to ensure the best features were highlighted. Unique to this team was the array of home services they offer - they had quick access to expert organizers, closet help, yard help (shrubs trimmed), and a delightful stager/interior designer who made our home sparkle.
Photography was the best in the business. Each and every request we had was addressed with care and expertise. Great negotiating skills came into play as they were able to get us a price of $100,000 over what any other realtor (and ourselves) thought was possible!

Anne-Marie, we feel so grateful that we were able to work with you. You made a stressful and uncertain process much more sane and bearable. We really trusted your judgement and it was especially wonderful to have two of you to bounce ideas off. You both complement each other very well and make terrific partners. We plan to actively recommend you whenever we get the chance. Thank you for everything!

The Finnell Lee Homes team are awesome agents! As my brother and I prepared to sell our family home of over 50 years, their patience and understanding made the process of preparing our house for sale until we closed a truly great experience.
Patty S. and James H., American University Park
Over the years, we've met and worked with many real estate agents, as we bought, sold and rented properties in Washington, where we have lived a combined total of nearly six decades. Working with Kelly Lee has been the best experience we've ever had in the real estate business, bar none. Throughout the process, Kelly brought her consummate professionalism, dedication and integrity to provide unsurpassed client service to us. We couldn't have been in better hands in terms of judgment, counsel and discretion. Kelly worked seamlessly as a team with veteran agent, Anne-Marie Finnell. Together, they made an A-Team - and helped deliver the optimal outcome for us. We couldn't have asked for a better process nor for a better outcome. Thank you, Kelly!
Atsuko H. and Ivar A., American University Park
Anne-Marie is fantastic! She was amazingly helpful, patient and resourceful when we were searching for our new house. She made the home buying process as easy as possible and was so great during the stressful bidding wars. She also has an amazing network of people to help you get your house ready for sale, which was incredibly helpful. She was really wonderful and I would hire her again in an instant!
