Chris Pritchard has provided her real estate clients with an exceptional level of service and personal attention since starting her business in 2002. Discerning buyers, sellers and renters regard her as thoroughly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and highly action-oriented when it comes to meeting their needs. 

An NVAR Lifetime Top Producer, and among the top 5% of Realtors nationwide, Chris has received ongoing recognition for her outstanding results. This includes being selected as a Washingtonian magazine Best Realtor in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. And, while the public recognition is a feather in her cap, and awards speak to her exemplary performance, what drives Chris day to day is service. As she is known to say, “I am proud of the numbers that result from hard work, yet it’s not about stats---it’s about service---and it’s not about us, it’s about our clients.”  Her designation as an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) adds what she considers an essential component to her repertoire of services, ensuring expertise across the full spectrum of real estate specialties.
For Chris, working in real estate is more than a career, it’s a passion. When representing the interests of her clients, she is creative and thinks big, ready to take on anything. “There is no house too large or too small; no activity too mundane or unimportant. Regardless of the need or situation, I will do all I can to achieve your personal goals.”

Focus, planning, listening, communication and complete engagement throughout the process define her unique style. And when it comes to negotiating, Chris is strategic and skilled in getting the utmost value for her clients. She came into real estate with a high profile background in marketing and public relations, having served as the director of area nonprofits and as Vice President of a nationally recognized luxury hotel design firm; roles requiring extensive interaction with top-level executives. The savvy and skills honed through these demanding assignments are put to highest use in her real estate business. 

A lifelong resident of Northern Virginia, Chris is a Virginia-licensed REALTOR specializing in sales and rentals in the in-demand neighborhoods of Falls Church, McLean, Arlington, Vienna, Great Falls, Alexandria and others. She has witnessed the incredible growth of the area over the decades and wholeheartedly enjoys sharing her valuable knowledge with others.

Chris and her husband, Joe, reside in L’Ambiance of McLean where she was a founding member of the architectural review board. She has lived in Germany and enjoys international travel. Her other interests include interior design, gardening, fitness, films, and entertaining.

" This is our fourth real estate transaction with Chris - who we refer to as our "Realtor for Life." As always, her advice is spot on. We followed her recommendations as to upgrades, staging and pricing to the letter and were rewarded with a quick sale. When its time for transaction #5, you know we won't be calling "Ghostbusters" - but Chris Pritchard."

– WS & MJC

" Everything was good and at the highest level of response and support from Chris. She was proactive, responsive, professional and thoughtful. Selling and moving on my own was a daunting prospect. Chris helped me every step of the way and her guidance and advice ensured my home sold quickly, and the process went smoothly, which is what I wanted. I could not have done it without her tremendous support. Very impressed with the whole experience."

– AB

" Chris was amazing! She made suggestions to stage our home and perform a few maintenance tasks. She stayed with us every step of the way, from initial meeting to overseeing the photographing of our home and placing her personal touches on our open house day. Her attention to detail was spot on!"

– MZ

" This is the fourth transaction with Chris Pritchard and the choice was always clear; Chris was the only choice. Her ability to read the market, understand how to price a house and her thorough knowledge of the real estate market is unparalleled. She could easily double as an expert house stager too. She understands how to de-clutter a home and make it appealing to buyers. The house had a solid offer the weekend of the first Open House. The comfort level of working with Chris is incredible. She is confident, poised, approachable and very talented. I'm sure within a couple more years we'll be fortunate to work with her once again."

– JT

" Chris is knowledgeable, professional and confident. She has my complete trust."

– RT

" We purchased our new home while living overseas. This could have been an incredibly nerve-racking experience for us, but Chris put us at ease by keeping us well informed at every step. She also has exceptional relationships with all the best local service providers which was a huge benefit to us being new to the area. We would recommend Chris in a heartbeat to anyone and especially to anyone moving into the area."

– SH

" I am not going to write 'goodbye'; only a huge and grateful thank you for being at my side every step of the way with the sale of my home. You have given me tremendous support and encouragement. I could not have done it without you."

– AB

" Chris is thoroughly professional and manages every detail of the listing process with style and attention. We are delighted with how our transaction went at every junction. Chris was always there to hold our hands and provide excellent advice. She was so positive and enthused about our house, and provided excellent service way beyond her scope of work."

– SB

" It is not an exaggeration, in the least, to say my wife and I would have been overwhelmed by the entire process of purchasing our new home were it not for Chris. Her level of service throughout the process was absolutely exemplary. What's more, this was all accomplished while our own preferences around the location and price of our new home were continually changing. Her professionalism, integrity, knowledge and unambiguous commitment to put her client's interest above everything else were evident to us, and she had our trust from the outset. We looked for her counsel on every decision we made."

– KS

" Chris is beyond wonderful. She is smart, knowledgeable, personable and a pleasure to work with. She listened to what we wanted and planned accordingly. We were very pleased. "

– ML

" We can't thank you enough for all of your time, patience and understanding during our home search. It all worked out....just like you said it would! You are truly a class act and we are thankful we were able to go on this journey with you. "

– LS

" We are sitting in the breakfast area of our new home looking out over the golf course as the sun sets and are thinking about how you helped us sell our McLean house so we could be here. Thank you so much for all you did in staging and marketing to bring home that sale. You made it very easy to move forward. "

– CK

" As the old adage goes "Leave it to the professionals." Chris definitely personifies that saying. Daring to Dream takes courage. Chris kept us apprised of major events, yet did not burden us with every small detail."

– LR

" I would not think of working with anyone else. I am so thankful that we worked with you, no other home on the market in our old neighborhood has sold! Of course, we were the only home represented by you - a woman of action! Thank you for your work and for your outstanding advice that helped us achieve our goal."

– HA

" Chris did a wonderful job helping us sell my mother's house which had a great deal of deferred maintenance. She recommended highly competent skilled trades people to make the house more marketable. She did an excellent job staging the house for it to show in the best light. She knew the market and recommended a reasonable sales price that resulted in a quick sale. We felt very confident having her handle details while we lived far away. She is a true professional and we recommend her most highly."

– SO

" We had spoken to other realtors and not one of them reassured us the way Chris did. She prepared excellent brochures and a viable game plan for a flawless sale. Her professionalism was exceptional at all stages of the transaction."

– PM

" Outstanding and above expectations. This was a complex sale. It required superb organization and strong salesmanship. That's what Chris said McEnearney is known for and we had the best Broker Open ever!"

– DS

" From the bottom of our hearts we say Thank you! Thank you for leading us in the right direction every step of the way. You make us feel like we are part of the family. Thank you for all you have done to make our dreams come true!"

– PD

" Above outstanding. We have never seen an agent work so hard, especially as a buyer agent. We purchased and sold houses across the country - several in NOVA, so we have comparisons. "

– MK

" I have never had such a positive experience before in dealing with a realtor."

– NM

" It was a pleasure working with Chris. She is a very good listener, very knowledgeable, detail oriented, transparent, forthright, and action oriented. We will recommend her to others."

– MH

" Chris is the best agent ever. Thoughtful, professional, smart, reliable, patient, savvy, and so fun and easy to talk to."

– ED

" We have been provided with very professional services and excellent advice in various areas by Chris since we officially requested her to take care of our property. Without her professional coordination with a painter, carpet company, suppliers of home appliances and others, I believe we would not have seen the property close so quickly and for the highest price attained. Our knowing Chris in this transaction leaves us with very good fortune and memories. "

– KS

" We asked Chris to help us sell our house and we’re so glad we did. When she recommended what to do to get the house ready, WE DID IT! When she analyzed the neighborhood sales and suggested a price, WE LISTENED! Chris knows the market and she knows marketing. Now we have experienced first hand why she is known as the neighborhood expert. She is warm and wonderful AND she means business. We couldn’t be happier and we know you will be, too. Neighbor to Neighbor- if you are thinking of selling, think no more- call Chris! "

– RC

" WE ARE THRILLED…and so grateful to Chris. She had helped us buy and, of course, we asked her to help us sell. With Chris, preparation and pricing go hand in hand. As she always says, “condition and price rule the day”. Guided by our trusted realtor/advisor, we did some touch up painting, edited some furnishings and had the windows washed. Chris did a beautiful job of staging. More importantly, she did a masterful job analyzing sales and market activity to guide us on pricing. We were introduced to the market with her customary MEGA WEEKEND MARKETING BLITZ. But it didn’t stop there. Chris focused on follow-up and pursued every lead. She personally hosted Open Houses and tracked our prospects. In the end, we’re sure it was her knowledge of the market, and of people, that made the difference. CHRIS IS DEDICATED TO HER CLIENTS AND DETERMINED TO GET RESULTS. We’ve benefited from her experience as buyers and as sellers. We encourage you to call Chris when it’s your time to make a move. "


" I will tell you I have bought and sold many homes in my last twenty years, and I have worked with a number of real estate agents. But never have I encountered the level of professionalism and competence that I found with Chris. She managed to be extremely organized and thorough while still maintaining a calm demeanor and easy laugh. I readily admit that I wanted to work with her because she was obviously so adept at selling houses, but I had not anticipated how enjoyable and easy she would make the process. She told me the changes that would make my home the most appealing to prospective buyers, and I followed all her suggestions. But I was trying to work full time, pack, and move, so I just left all of the details to Chris. I was able to do what I needed to do, and I never had to wonder how things were progressing with the sale. She had a plan for marketing the house that was carefully thought out. Chris is someone who should be truly recognized and acknowledged. "
