When people ask what Jerry Thatcher specializes in, her answer is always the same…”I specialize in nice people.”  Since 2002, she has been tremendously grateful that the majority of her real estate business comes from referrals from her satisfied clients.  Jerry genuinely cares about her sellers and buyers, during, and long after the transaction has closed.  As she puts it, “When you know how much I care, you’ll care how much I know,” a philosophy that has built her success, and her reputation for providing the ultimate personal service.
As an expert listing agent, one of her many strengths is pricing.  Jerry’s listings have sold far quicker (6 days on average) and for more money (99.53% of list price) than the industry average!  Staging services are a special bonus for sellers, to showcase their homes in the best light and command the highest price. She also represents buyers and renters throughout Northern Virginia who are seeking their dream home at the best value.  Her excellent track record, deep passion, and industry accolades that include NVAR Top Producer and Lifetime Multimillion-Dollar Club Member, have led to her mentoring numerous agents as well.
With sixteen years of experience in the real estate industry, Jerry offers seasoned expertise coupled with McEnearney's exceptional tools and marketing resources to exceed client expectations.  Teamwork is an equal priority when working with her sellers and buyers.  “This collaboration is especially important as a listing agent, to get our sellers homes sold quickly and seamlessly!”
Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Jerry lived in Miami, Florida until moving to the Northern Virginia/DC area in 1989.  Prior to real estate, she was a critical care and surgical nurse trained to quickly assess situations, and provide the highest ethics and communication, as she does in real estate.  Jerry is licensed in Virginia, and a member of the NVAR, VAR and NAR.  She is also very passionate and supportive of Ronald McDonald Charities since losing her six-year-old son to Wilm’s Tumor.  Her grown children, Ashley and Garrett, grandchildren Hudson and Rowan, and husband David, a Naval Academy graduate, are the lights of her life.

" I can't say enough about Jerry's professionalism and nurturing personality through the real estate process. In addition to her extensive knowledge in local real estate, she really cares about her clients. She has a great read on what clients want and need. I gave her criteria that I was looking for in a home and she met that criteria in the homes she showed us. Throughout the home buying process, Jerry was extremely responsive and thoughtful in her recommendations. She even went as far as staging a surprise showing of a home for my children (that I had already purchased). She made a sign, brought cupcakes and was part of the joyous moment letting our kids know I already purchased the home. Purchasing a home can be a very overwhelming process, but Jerry makes her clients feel at ease and comfortable. She's great at what she does! I'd highly recommend Jerry for any real estate transaction. "

" With the stresses of finding a new home in a new city during a company relocation, our agent, Jerry Thatcher, was very hands on. She was our eyes and ears when we couldn't be in town, and her knowledge and expertise put us at ease with the transition. We are truly grateful for all of her help. "

– The Jones Family

" If you want just a realtor at a competitive rate from a large agency, don't hire Jerry Thatcher! But if you want a true friend who will look out for you in all aspects and will also sell your home for the best price in the market at shortest possible time, you will not find anyone better than Jerry in NoVA. Trust me, I have bought and sold three large houses in NoVA and have used a variety of agents. Jerry will engage with you in a holistic process which includes understanding you, your family and your home. When I engaged Jerry, I was a bit constrained for time - I had left the country and had to sell the house quickly. She came into my life like an angel and took care of everything while I was out of the country. She went way beyond her duty as a realtor and I now consider her "our friend"! I would recommend Jerry to anyone who asks!"

– Sax Krishna

" I reached out to Jerry at the recommendation of a friend. We were facing some unusual and stressful circumstances, so it made a huge difference to find someone so wonderful to work with. Jerry was great at “rolling with it” and never stopped smiling. She was responsive, proactive, knowledgeable, and worked very hard on our behalf. When we had to do things fast, she made it happen. I am so glad she was in our corner. And now we have a home we love! Thanks, Jerry! "

– Risa and Brad

" Our home selling and buying experience with Jerry Thatcher was incredible. From the beginning, Jerry educated us on the whole process and reassured us all along the way about how all of the details would come together, and they did! She helped us understand everything we needed to do to prepare our home so that it would be the most attractive for sale and did not overlook the slightest detail to help us get things just right. She added so much value to the process by helping us stage the home with her keen eye for design. She helped us find the right time and price to sell so we could maximize our value and choose among many competitive offers. She stayed on top of every task and issue that came up and moved everything in the process efficiently to closing. And through her network of brilliant colleagues, we were able to receive timely insights on questions about financing and many other issues. Above all, Jerry is just a wonderful, positive, delightful person to work with. She cares about her clients personally and spares no effort to ensure that they can accomplish their goals and have the most successful experience with the sale and purchase of their homes. The depth of service she provides is tremendously valuable. You could not find a more professional, savvy, and personally committed realtor than Jerry. "

– Mike and Laurie Snarr

" Working with Jerry made the home-buying process a breeze. My husband and I were looking to buy our first home together and were nervous about the process. From the initial meeting, we knew that Jerry was the Realtor for us. She was available to us via phone, text, email -- you name it. We ended up building a new home, which is an even longer process, and Jerry was right there with us every step of the way. She truly acted as the liaison between us, the builder and the mortgage company. We're so appreciative of her help and knowledge, and thankful to be living in the home of our dreams. "

– Lauren and Tyler

" Jerry Thatcher is the perfect realtor for you if you want a realtor to provide you with personalized service; a realtor that will respect you, your home, your concerns with buying or selling your home; a realtor who puts not just her expansive and extensive expertise of the housing market and housing trends into every action she does. Jerry puts her heart into every sale and purchase and elicits every client's dreams and needs for their housing search or sale. We have known and worked with Jerry for several home purchases and sales for almost 10 years. She is honest, trustworthy and a marketing genius. We, literally, would never make a move without Jerry on our side. Her knowledge of and skill with preparing and staging our home really set our property over the top. Our home sold within the first week for the asking price when Jerry listed it. You have a plethora of realtors to choose from in the Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC area. Why not chose the best for you and your family --Jerry Thatcher."

" As my immediate family has worked with Jerry in the past to sell their home in the Chantilly area, I contacted Jerry (very suddenly) July of 2016. I had called her - unannounced - on a Thursday, and was able to see the property that I was interested in on a Saturday in the Arlington area. I had seen properties with Jerry earlier that year/Fall of 2015 at different times in the past and was very comfortable to work with her. She was very knowledgeable of the areas and price ranges I was looking for, and had very good suggestions/ideas. In seeing this property in Arlington on a Saturday, it was not too long afterward that I put in an offer. Jerry had helped connect me to a mortgage lender (whom I vetted) and a firm to perform the closing. She was very terrific throughout the whole process through when I receive the keys to my property. Given her depth of experience, she was very easily - and honestly - able to answer my questions (which at times, as a first time home buyer, were very specific and detailed). A terrific depth of knowledge and experience in my opinion. Very easy to get in touch with, through email/text/phone, and to speak with. I truly felt at ease with Jerry, and that she was committed to helping me - through and through. I would definitely recommend Jerry to anyone - co-workers, friends, family - to work with her in the future."

" Jerry has been like family to us since 2004 when she sold our first home. She was so great that she was our only choice (why leave a Winner) to help us sell our higher end home in Oak Hill, VA when we moved from the area in 2012, for employment reasons. Jerry always goes the extra mile to make sure she can meet us on ‘our schedule’ and her helpful suggestions on how to show and sell the house for top dollar. And we did, realizing a very good sales price, owing it all to her fantastic planning, customer service and friendly ‘Hey, I have an idea.’ We moved back to Northern VA this fall and Jerry helped us navigate the difficult waters of finding a great place to rent that fit all our criteria - great neighborhood location that is both close to work and has that ‘nice community feel’. Affordable and reasonably priced quality in a place that makes us feel like its our home. Jerry has an eye for all these things and adapts to what is most important to you as the buyer, seller or renter. We couldn’t be happier with Jerry, a true friend that is always doing for others, has your back and shares your concern for your happiness when it comes to committing to a place with your wallet. She is the best of the best, as we have lived and sold homes in California and Northern VA before - no one touches her style, friendliness, energy and customer service."

– Steve and Katherine

" The sale of your home is an important life decision. You can always trust a seasonal professional like Jerry Thatcher to help you navigate the process. Jerry makes the entire process of buying/selling a home a wonderful experience. She works hard to make the transactions easy and she understands the market trends. Even after the papers are signed she continues to remember you, stay in contact and become a genuine friend in every way. She puts you and your family first."

– Walter and Melanie

" Jerry is an excellent real estate agent, not only with her creative ideas to sell your home, but her undying support and solutions when purchasing a property. She will be who I call again when I am ready to sell and/or purchase another property in a couple of years. I highly recommend her. "

– Joann

" I have visited Jerry's well-organized and thoughtfully-presented open houses. I have also seen the tenacity and honesty with which she represents her clients. She builds long-lasting relationships with her clients and colleagues. Highly recommended!"

– Dave C.

" Over the past 10 years, Jerry sold three of our homes and helped us buy one of our homes. She also connected us to the Realtor that helped us buy our current home out-of-state. She is second to none. The best of the best!!!"

– Phillip and Heather

" Our experience in working with Jerry to sell our home was terrific. Much has changed in real estate over the 20 years since we last sold a home. Jerry led us every step of the way in down-sizing, meeting deadlines, updating our house, and preparing to relocate. Extremely knowledgable about the Northern Virginia market, she helped to make our experience pleasant and positive, resulting in a signed contract in two days. Jerry's professionalism and work ethic are outstanding, and we recommend her with the greatest of confidence!"
