Melinda and her team were simply outstanding. They guided us through the process of selling our home with knowledge, expertise and efficiency of true professionals. Melinda leads a group of people all of whom were extremely responsive and efficient in providing guidance from preparing the house through choosing the best offer and closing process. Our house sold the within days of putting it on the market. The team is pleasant and deserves the highest compliments for professionalism and expertise.


We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Scott Sachs. From day 1, Scott was extremely helpful and had great suggestions for apartments to view based on what we were looking for. All throughout the negotiations and closing Scott was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen.  He was always very responsive and helpful. He made the process of buying an apartment for us very easy and quick. Especially, for clients like us who live outside the state of D.C. I would certainly recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home. Such a pleasure working with Scott!


We had two very good experiences with Scott, when we moved to the DC area in 2015 and bought a condo and in 2018 when we sold that condo and moved to a house. In 2015, we were completely ignorant of the city, its neighborhoods and the market. Scott was great at figuring out what we wanted and  could afford and found us a great place for a great price. In 2018, when we both sold and bought at the same time, Scott was great on both sides of the equation. He knows the city and the real estate market expertly, he has great relationships with everyone involved in a purchase or sale - from mortgage brokers to contractors. He was a pleasure to work with, most important of all. We could not recommend him more highly.


I can't say enough about Daniel and the Estridge Group team. When my husband and I decided it was time to make our first home purchase in the Silver Spring area, we felt a bit lost and overwhelmed in terms of where to start. From the very beginning, Daniel was the consummate professional; he was  exceedingly knowledgeable, always responsive, extremely flexible, and perhaps most importantly, he was always understanding, patient, and kind. He listened to our needs and wants, gave us amazing advice, answered all of our countless questions, and saw us through every step of the home buying process (even while he was on vacation in Montana!). In the end, he closed the deal on our house despite two other offers because he not only successfully advised us on our offer, but he also had a previously established and positive rapport with the listing agent. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the DMV!


Daniel is a real pro. He spent a lot of time over the past 6 months (including weekends) helping me find just the right condo I was looking for. I can't recommend him more highly. He really knows the DC area's real estate market.


"We recently sold our home with the Estridge Group. We didn’t know what to expect when we decided to put our house on the market. We met with Melinda and Daniel and they came up with a comprehensive plan to achieve our goals. Our house needed significant work and they recommended and coordinated contractors to get the house looking better than we ever could have imagined. As a result of all that they did, our house was soldin 3 days above the listing price! Melinda always kept in touch and was always available when we needed her. We worked on a daily basis with Daniel and we were extremely impressed by his overall real estate knowledge and his expertise in the Bethesda market. His efforts were beyond our expectations. We also worked very closely with Joyce and Jamie and they were outstanding. Selling a home can be an overwhelming so we feel very fortunate that we had the Estridge group on our side."


Daniel guided us through the sale of our house with extraordinary expertise and care. From the first appointment discussing price and strategy to the last moment of closing, Daniel was incredibly professional, personable and dedicated. The end result was a beautiful listing that sold in five days  for over the original asking price. I will use Daniel for all my future real estate needs and recommend him to all my family and friends.


"Melinda was our agent for the home purchase we now live in (fam of 5) and sale of my wife's second property. Couldn't be happier. She has a magnetic personality and knows EVERYTHING about the bethesda/chevy chase market. She also a pitbull when it comes to negotiations. Her #1 trait, however, is her honesty. She is not looking to make a quick buck (ex: we were considering selling and she basically said that was a horrible idea...she said stay where you are. She lost a sizable commission, but she was honest). We would recommend her to anyone."

Melinda Estridge and her team were beyond fantastic. Great knowledge, top notch advice and staging, and smart negotiation strategy that got us well beyond our asking price. We could not be happier with the outcome and recommend very highly!


We interviewed four realtors after our house had been on the market for six weeks and hadn't sold. We chose Daniel because of his energy and his ideas on how to sell our house. From day 1, Daniel was professional, attentive, and truly listened to our concerns. He worked tirelessly on the sale of  our house and kept us informed every step of the way. Beyond that, his advice proved invaluable. From staging to pricing to presentation of offers. Voila. Our house sold in the middle of winter! So, did he then ignore us since his job was done? No, he held our hands through the closing and continued to check in with us at our new house. We give him the highest of recommendations.

Carolyn Davison
I listened to a podcast featuring Melinda Estridge-my Dad is trying to sell his house in OR and I am less than impressed with his agent & the pitiful listing she created. I know it sounds very pretentious of me given that I’m not a real estate agent, but I am going to attempt to write a proper property description for her and so was researching successful real estate companies to get an idea of how it should be done.
I was so thoroughly impressed with Melinda’s expertise and advice that I went to your website to look through some listings. It was extremely helpful-wish you guys operated in my Dad’s area!
Thanks again for the follow-up.

"We highly recommend"

My family recently relocated to the DC metro area. We had a tight schedule to find a house that suited our needs. Fortunately, we decided to work with Scott Sachs and we are VERY happy that we did. Scott provided us with excellent service. He is responsive, knowledgeable about the local housing market and home buying in general, and attentive to our various needs and requests. Scott helped us find a wonderful house in a neighborhood that we love. He walked us through the process (from pre-search through closing) and quickly helped us address any issues that arose. We highly recommend Scott as a buyers' agent and will certainly use him again should the need arise.


"Wonderful Experience"

We have bought and sold two houses with them and had a wonderful experience and both time we got more then we asked. They are very personable and have a wonderful supporting staff.


"Fantastic To Work With"

The Estridge Group is the perfect team for a first time home buyer. My wife and I knew NOTHING about the home buying process. We were overwhelmed and frankly intimidated by the process. We worked with Daniel Schuler of the team. He was fantastic to work with. Daniel truly helped us buy a house. At no point did we feel that he was simply trying to "make a sale". He answered all our questions promptly and sincerely. The Estridge Group is the best. I would not hesitate to recommend this team of professionals to everyone.


"A pleasure to work with ... we'd highly recommend."

We had a great experience with our realtor Scott Sachs. His understanding of the housing market in the NOVA area and ability to spot potential issues when viewing houses was really helpful. He made the process really enjoyable and was friendly even during those 9pm phone calls. The rest of the team was a pleasure to work with as well, and we'd highly recommend them.


Working with Melinda and her very helpful team made selling our house easy. Our home was sold in five days for over asking selling price!!!! Melinda and her team guided us with ease and confidence with complete expert knowledge in their field. The Estridge Group is definitely a first choice to pick when it comes to selling or buying your home.

Well known, well-versed, exceptionally competent and experienced…it’s what you need in today’s real estate market. We had immediate success with the Estridge Group! They carved our path and we did not hesitate to follow their lead and suggestions. The Estridge Group works as a carefully trained, small personal team rather than as that of the usual individual agent who only has standard back office support. They are also uniquely aligned with an extraordinary set of allied partners able to rapidly assist clients with desired inspections, repairs, renovations, and staging. From pre-listing to closing, our entire process was smooth, efficient, direct and well-done!

LM Rudner

Thank you so much for helping me sell my late parents' house when you came on when I was trying to sell the house for the second summer.  Due to your efforts not only was there a quick offer and sale, but you made things easier for me by knowing how to deal with the buyers' issues, and you (and Daniel) gave me good advice.  I am so glad you became my agent, as well as assigning me Daniel who was a perfect fit as my agent on a regular basis.
 Also, I wanted to thank your excellent staff who were knowledgeable, prompt, and followed through with what I needed - especially Delmas & Joyce whom I interfaced with the most.
I couldn't have selected a better real estate co. than the Estridge Group.  It was a pleasure working with all of you.  Thank you again!

W . Everett

My experience with The Estridge Group was fabulous in every way. I was made to feel as if I was Melinda’s only client!

Melinda and her team helped me by finding my new home, accessing skilled professionals to prepare my house for sale, understanding the process of selling a house and feeling supported in the emotional process of selling my home. Melinda and her team created beautiful and effective marketing materials and helped me set the perfect price for the house.

My house sold in five days! I couldn’t be more pleased by the outcome With that, I offer The Estridge Group heartfelt gratitude and my highest recommendation.


"Melinda and team are the best real estate agent we have ever worked with before. We needed to sell our house in Silver Spring, Maryland to move a bigger house with better school clusters during 2007. She is very knowledgeable to provide valuable advice on home renovation and pricing to make the quick move in the fast changing housing market. The house was sold within 1 month and we have been so happy with the smooth sale. I would highly recommend to work with Melinda and her team."


"Melinda is one of the best agents I have met. She is professional, smart and has an outstanding track record. I have been working with Melinda for over 25 years and she has always maintained contact with me. I have completed four sales and purchases with Melinda and highly recommend her. Once you speak with her, I’m confident you will see Melinda's value and establish a long-term relationship."

8301 Thoreau Dr, Bethesda, MD 20817

I contacted the The Estridge Group to help me find a home in the area that I wanted live in and at the price that I wanted to pay. I was able to find it quickly and start the process to settlement in a few weeks. My agent, Bob Estridge, was so knowledgeable and instrumental in negotiating the  purchase price. The Estridge Team helped me every step during the process of preparing for settlement. I never felt alone in the process. I was totally confident in The Estridge Group continuous daily support and guidance. Now that I am moved into my new home, I reflect back on the experience and it seemed so effortless for me....in fact, quite enjoyable. It was the best experience that I have had in purchasing any property. I have purchased several properties over the last 40 years but the experience with other Realtors was never as pleasant or smooth from day to day until settlement as it was working with The Estridge Group. I would definitely tell anyone that if you want to work with the right people to find and settle on the right property for you then you need to work with The Estridge Group.


You want to know how Daniel works – read the last 8 or 9 posts you see here. We experienced all of what others have said. That is no accident. Daniel is: experienced; a negotiator; a marketer; detail oriented; available; and the list goes on. You would have to meet him to see for yourself. He  is a family man who is very pleasant to work with. He also has an incredible team in the Estridge Group that makes it all happen. Compare their record to others (days on the market, etc). We all know a realtor who is a neighbor, friend or relative. For one of the most important and largest financial transactions you may ever make – go with the pros. The result – our house was listed on Thursday in mid-January, open house on Sunday, signed contract on Tuesday (list price, no contingencies, no inspection, and pre-approved financing), with settlement in 15 days.


Daniel is truly the best realtor ever. We ran to The Estridge Group after firing a previous real estate agent. He put our house on the market in a little over a month and sold it in ONE DAY. Daniel is a master at negotiation and follow through. He took really good care and looked in after our  house frequently since we moved out of state. His voice is calm yet assertive. Daniel was always available for all of my questions. You will be hard pressed to find anyone like Daniel and his team. His work ethic, expertise, dedication, and honesty is unbeatable.


We were searching for a home to purchase with a sizable garden area. Once we found the right home, I (and my husband) have been thoroughly pleased with the attentiveness that Caroline Aslan has shown throughout the process of purchasing this property. When Caroline had to be out of town at one point, an Estridge team member jumped in and was completely competent and equally attentive to our needs. I really have been very happy, given how many complications can arise during a home purchase.

"A Fantastic Experience"

I am extremely happy and would highly recommend the Estridge group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I had a fantastic experience with their on-line representative Tom who was able to help me narrow down neighborhoods as well as a search criteria, through his diligence and follow through I was alerted to a great property and able to find my dream condo. When I schedule a visit to DC, which coincided with finding my condo on line I was assigned a terrific agent Eric and as a first time home buyer he was able to walk me through the process and explained everything step by step. He recommended a competitive offer and my offer was accepted, which was the best news!! thanks to my agents hard work and late nights I was able to get the exact property I wanted. A BIG thanks to the Estridge Group!!

"Well done, Melinda and your team!"

Homeowners in Bethesda who put their house on the market have a wide choice among many skilled real estate professionals. From among those professionals, we chose Melinda Estridge and the Estridge Group because she is probably the #1 Realtor in Bethesda. It's fair to say that she "makes the market" in our neighborhood, Maplewood-Alta Vista. We were not disappointed. Melinda suggested certain improvements to make the house more saleable, and brought in Dan Lindner of Fix-It, LLC and his capable staff to make those improvements. She brought in a staging professional who was a pleasure to work with. Most important, she pegged the property at the right price. As a result, our house sold immediately, the weekend that it came on the market, at the asking price. Melinda and her competent staff made the whole process, from contract to closing, a smooth one.

"A Rewarding Experience in Selling Our House"

We listed our property for sale with Melinda Estridge following interviews with 3 real estate agents in March 2015. Melinda's knowledge of the local area market and her approach in selling properties convinced us. Melinda recommended staging the property for showing and open house. Initially skeptical, we were pleased how it turned out. After staging, our property looked more attractive and the money spent for staging proved to be a rewarding investment. Melinda recommended a competitive listing price to attract potential buyers and this turned out to be the right approach. Following listing, we had 8 showings the next day and 12 showings the following day. The third day Open House attracted more than 50 people at the property. Melinda called us every day to provide us with an update. We were told that, following 3 days of showing, there were at least two offers registered. During this time, Melinda and her office staff were busy calling potential buyers who showed interest in the property. On the sixth day following listing, we had 4 offers and 3 out of the 4 offered a purchase price higher than our listing price. We accepted the offer with the least contingencies. Understandably, we were very pleased with the result. This was also more or less what Melinda had predicted and indicated to us when the property was listed. Melinda has a very capable and professional supporting team. Among them, her Operations Manager Joyce Brown is a super efficient and nice person. She follows up all matters closely and was responsive in all inquiries. We highly recommend that anyone who wishes to sell their property hires Melinda Estridge to be their listing/selling agent. Her knowledge of the market, negotiation skill, professional advice, and her highly capable supporting team had provided us an rewarding experience in selling our house.

Getting You the Best Purchase Price Possible

"I got a new job in July and needed to find a house in Montgomery county ASAP. I got very lucky by meeting Daniel Schuler from Estridge group. I was looking at rentals, but Daniel suggested that buying was a better and more affordable option; and he was right. Not only he helped me to find the house, but he also introduces me to the mortgage financing team that helped me to obtain loan at amazing 3.5% interest and settle within 30 days, no gimmicks no hidden fees. Daniel was there every step of the way very responsive and efficient. He was very aggressive at looking after my interest and getting me the best purchase price possible. Melinda Estridge was following up with me all the time to ensure that I am satisfied with the service. Also, Bob O’Toole was very helpful in assisting me when Daniel was out of town, in other words great team work. The whole process from making a decision to buy a house to the settlement table took 45 days. I’m very happy with the service I received and would recommend it to everyone."
