HayesWood Homes offers decades of combined life and work experiences in Alexandria. Chris and Gordon each embody a steadfast dedication to the community and to their families—from coaching and deep involvement in Alexandria schools, to local sponsorships. Chris and Gordon understand that buying or selling a home requires more than simply getting through the transaction. The right choice in a real estate decision begins with considering a variety of family, personal and financial needs.

Working with HayesWood Homes, clients benefit from a team effort that offers much more than just two individual agents. They offer a full array of services and around-the-clock attention for their clients’ needs. In a situation that may require cleaning, a handyman, landscaping, and more—they go beyond offering trusted vendor recommendations and will actually work directly with the contractors on your behalf. You can rest assured that Gordon and Chris will be extremely responsive and being a team allows them to answer questions around the clock. 

This team offers an extremely thorough understanding of the area in which they live with their families and work on a day-to-day basis. Chris was born and raised in Alexandria, and Gordon was raised in Fairfax County and has resided in Alexandria for 30 years. Having a history of residing and working in this area has allowed for repeat clients seeking assistance through many of life’s changes. Some long-time clients have progressed through a “round-trip cycle” of sorts: from renting a condo, to expanding to a single-family home, and back through downsizing.

Before they formed their business partnership, they formed a friendship over a shared enthusiasm for sports. Gordon and Chris are avid D.C. area sports fans and attend many local games including professional, college and high school events This enthusiasm has carried over into both of their involvements with coaching local youth teams. HayesWood Homes is also a sponsor of West Potomac and T.C. Williams High Schools. Go Wolverines and Go Titans!

Gordon Wood

As a lifetime resident of Northern Virginia and having started in real estate at a young age, Gordon offers his clients the benefit of three decades of real estate experience and extensive knowledge of the area. During his career, he has owned rental properties and renovated more than twenty homes. He understands the local market and understands the real estate industry like the back of his hand.

Gordon received his bachelor’s degree in Economics in 1986 from Mary Washington College and studied International Economics at the University of Salzburg in Salzburg, Austria. He became a licensed REALTOR® in 1986, and received a Broker’s license shortly thereafter in 1991, at the age of 27. He continues to be a top producer in the business. 

Listing homes are Gordon’s primary passion in the real estate business, but he is also a reputable buyer representative. He has never considered his job to be as simple as “selling houses to clients.” Instead, Gordon has the proven and trusted experience to help guide you through the transaction while making the best overall decision, whether you are purchasing, selling, renting, renovating or financing.

Gordon is a trusted advocate within the community, most notably as a member of the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce and through his work with the Inova Hospitals. He lives in Alexandria with his wife, Lauren, and they have four daughters. 

His family has been setting records in Alexandria schools—from the Meeting House Cooperative preschool years, to St. Paul’s kindergarten years, now for the 19th straight year at the Alexandria Country Day School, and into high school ages, when his daughters have attended West Potomac High School. Gordon served 2 terms on the Board of Trustees at ACDS, and many of his clients first met him on the basketball court and soccer fields where he has coached for years.

When he is not dedicating time to supporting/coaching youth sports and watching his own daughters compete, he also enjoys Bethany Beach, Delaware and other travel.

Chris Hayes

Chris is a true embodiment of the Alexandria community. He was born and raised in this community and grew up in the Parkfairfax, Rosemont and also for a time in South Alexandria. Chris bought his first home in Vienna, VA, but has notable experience owning properties in the City of Alexandria. In his work through HayesWood teams, Chris offers clients more than real estate advice—you will also find a trustworthy source of knowledge about family and community life in Alexandria. 

Chris' education includes a B.A. in Communications from Bethany College and an M.S. in Telecommunications from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. While at IU, Chris taught television production classes and worked for the athletic department shooting the official team films/tapes for Bob Knight's basketball team and Sam Wyche's football team. Chris' love of sports continues today by staying active and getting to the gym as often as his schedule allows.

Prior to working in real estate, Chris spent many years in the corporate world. He spent seventeen years in sales in the telecommunications industry, including launching both the DirecTV and XM Radio satellite services. He understands the rigors that many of his clients face on a day-to-day basis. He was transferred for work three times in a six-year period, so he also has experience relocating and buying a house in a new city. 

Chris works hard for his clients to make their experience of home buying or selling as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. Chris knows how to read the market and keeps his clients' best interests in mind every step of the way. The majority of his business comes from referrals, which speaks to the high level of satisfaction of his clients. 

Chris currently resides in Braddock Heights with his wife Katy, who is also a native Alexandrian, and son Harrison.

" Guided us along the way through a sale and purchase. Answered all our questions and we had many! Recommended smart improvements to our house, and managed the work on our behalf, which helped it look its best and sell quickly. Excellent communication. Exposed us to available properties that would meet our goals. Seamless & professional! Five stars!"

– Jane S.

" When we made the decision to downsize late in 2018, one of the things we worried about most (besides downsizing!) was selling our home of 25 years in the “off-season” and without too much effort on our part. We need not have worried. With our home well-maintained but needing a little bit of work to make it market-ready, we identified about a dozen of the listed items to accomplish immediately, before the first sign went up. At Chris and Gordon’s suggestion, within a week to ten days we were ready to go with a “Coming Soon” sign (a strategy recommended by Gordon) to get the ball rolling. Chris and Gordon continued to work with us until closing (including multiple trips to check on repairs or with papers to be signed) as if they lived just around the corner, and we closed on the sale. We can’t recommend HayesWood Homes’ services highly enough. "

– R. & N.S.

" We have worked with HayesWood Homes three separate times to buy and sell homes. Why? They are dedicated experts with a unique ability to make us feel as though we were their only clients. They listened and knew just how to position us to make a sale or secure the house we wanted. It is rare to find people who have been in the real estate business this long are is still just as passionate and enthusiastic."

– Sara and Ansel S.

" It's been about a month since our purchase and move. We wanted to thank you so much for all your help. We love this house more and more every day. Hope to see you soon."

– Shawn and Christine

" ...Gordon dealt with us in the most professional and straightforward manner. My sisters and I found him to be extremely responsive... and he advised us clearly and well through the closing. I think he really understood this was more than a business deal for us. My sisters and I feel he did an outstanding job."

– Kim N.

" Hi Chris: We are finally starting to settle into the new house now and love it as much as we thought we would. We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent service you provided us throughout the entire process. This move and the purchase has been a major life change for us, and you provided a steady hand throughout that made every step so much easier for us. If you ever need a reference for any potential clients, Amber and I would be happy to highly recommend you. Thank you,"

– Amber, Scott, and Felix

" Hello neighbors! I would like to strongly recommend the two realtors who helped us secure a contract to sell our house without ever putting it on the market! They are Gordon Wood and Chris Hayes of McEnearney Associates. Dennis and I have known Gordon for about 20 years. He handled the purchase of our current home 14 years ago and also helped us sell Dennis's mother's house. With almost 30 years of real estate experience, Gordon knows the Alexandria market very well. Using a "coming soon" strategy, he spread the word about our house in Marlboro Estates among his fellow realtors. That way, when prospective buyers came over to take a look, they didn't expect perfection and felt lucky to see the house early. The second couple to come through made us a good offer on the house, so we will not need to paint or repair anything. Should your house need minor repairs, painting, etc. to prepare it for sale, Chris has a reliable, experienced handyman who can take care of almost any issue. And, to top if off, Gordon and Chris are even willing to help move your furniture! They came over yesterday and moved about 10 pieces of furniture, including several heavy items, from all three levels of our house into the garage for eventual donation. "

– Dennis & Lynn C.

" Chris met all of our expectations. He worked very hard to find the right house we wanted. Also, the sale of our house went very smoothly and professionally."

– John and Denise

" You have now handled 4 moves for us."

– Bill B.

" I have had the pleasure of calling Chris both a friend and a trusted real estate advisor for over a decade. Chris has been with me every step of the way from buying my first home, a condo, when I was a young working professional to our first family home when I wed my husband. This past year we turned to Chris again as we sought to buy our family’s dream home – a place where we look forward to watching our son grow up and create many family memories in our home for years to come. Chris was there every step of the way with seasoned real estate advice while serving as a sounding board for all our questions, ideas and helping to turn our dreams in to reality."

– Emily W.

" So proud of you both and appreciate your professionalism in our transactions. Always top notch. Way to go guys! "

– Jennifer MM

" We still love our home - thanks Chris Hayes!"

– Claire BW

" Dear Gordon, Tom and I are getting settled into our new home here in Delaware and loving the new environment! Before too much time passes and we forget all about you fine folks over in Northern Virginia, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your wonderful guidance and professionalism throughout our whole selling process. As you know, we contacted you early in the game before we had even found a place to live, and I remember thinking how responsive and helpful you were, even back then, giving us tips on what projects to take on to get the house ready, and how best to stage it. Even during all of those months while we waited to get a delivery date on our new house, you stayed in touch without being intrusive and gathered the needed information to help us price it correctly. It all paid off, as we certainly couldn't have had a better (or faster) outcome - getting our price and then some! Thank you Gordon, for being the consummate professional. You were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. You may certainly give our name as a reference to any prospective clients. "

– Tom and Lysa

" If you're ever looking for the best possible real estate team with years of experience, consider Hayeswood Homes. I am a first time home buyer with very little knowledge about the home buying process. All throughout the negotiations, they were extremely responsive and took the time to answer my questions and walk me through the process. I was really nervous about purchasing my first home at a young age, but with their help, I felt comfortable and at ease. I recommend Hayeswood Homes for all of your home buying needs. Awesome team and I cant thank them enough!"

– Tyra

" Hayeswood Homes went above and beyond - managing all the repairs in a very difficult situation and it went smoothly. "

– Nicholas

" Exceeded expectations. A tough sale and they kept me so calm. They are just the kind of people you want as your agents. I don't think it would have been possible to improve on my experience. Fabulous!"

– Kate
