" Pat Day and Mason Montague Bavin did an outstanding job selling a rental property that was part of my
father’s estate. I got the feeling that they treated the property as if it was their own. They were
constantly checking on it and making sure that it was ready to show. As it stayed on the market longer
than they thought it should, they started to dig into what some of the issues might be that would
prevent prospective buyers from making offers. They took action on the issues and provided cost
effective solutions to make sure they were addressed. They handled all the hiring and scheduling of the
work that needed to be done, and in some cases actually paid for the work and then let me know what
to reimburse them for. I can’t imagine how long it would have taken if I didn’t have them as my real
estate agents. Through the whole process Pat’s advice was invaluable as to adjusting the list price and
negotiations once the offers started coming in. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or
selling a home."
" I want to thank you so very much for all of your hard work in getting my condo sold in just 1
week! From the advice you gave me on the preparation for sale of my unit to the contract
negotiation and closing, you were always readily available to me and answered all of my
questions. I will recommend you to anybody that I know searching for realtors. I cannot thank
you enough for making the entire process go smoothly! You both make a great team! Thank
I so appreciate you both!"
" Please accept my sincerest gratitude and praise for your tireless efforts. Without your
market expertise and professionalism, my Dad’s house would probably still be “for sale”
instead of sold and settled. Additionally, your oversight and attention to detail with
needed repair/reno work proved invaluable to me since I live a couple of hours away.
Having bought and sold several homes over the years, I can really appreciate the talent
and diligence you both bring to the table. This transaction was by far the smoothest and
most trouble-free sale that I have ever experienced. Thank you for your keen
assessment of the current housing situation in Alexandria. Your personal touch,
professional demeanor, and teamwork fostered a “win/win” environment throughout the
Every home buyer and seller should get to enjoy your very professional services! I
wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in
Alexandria. You will both certainly continue to flourish and have much future success!"
" We heartily recommend Pat Day and Mason Montague Bavin for any of your real estate needs. Pat and
Mason are a great team and provided invaluable support selling our house in northern Virginia. When
we decided to sell our rental property, they started out with a comprehensive review of both the market
and the state of the property. They coordinated some much-needed updates and ensured everything
was ready to hit the market at the start of the fall market. Pat and Mason continued to monitor the
market and kept us apprised on activity. When we got an offer, they provided great advice on our
strategy for negotiations. After we had a finalized contract, they continued to stay on top of things,
helping us address Homeowners Association mandated repairs and the home inspection contingency
resolution. Throughout the process, Pat and Mason did a great job of representing us as the client and
keeping our interests first and foremost.
If there is any need for us to acquire or sell real estate in the DC area in the future, there is no doubt in
our minds that we will once again call Pat and Mason. If you are in the market either as a seller or a
buyer, you cannot go wrong with Pat and Mason as your real estate agent team."

Throughout the the various stages of the sale, we were able to fully trust in and rely on your professionalism, experience, honesty and finesse."
" In spite of the challenging market conditions Pat and Mason worked very hard and went the extra mile to do everything in their power to effect the sale of my property."
" I had wonderful experience working with Mason. She was knowledgeable and patient answering all me questions about relocating to the Fairfax area. Mason always went the extra mile to help me find the right house and location for my family."
" Mason Bavin drives results! What we anticipated to be a three-plus month process to find the perfect house, ended up being just six weeks! We’re now settled and loving our home in a terrific neighborhood and community where we never imagined possible. Mason was incredibly responsive. From the first e-mail right through the closing, Mason listened and paid attention to our needs and desires, then responded with excellent coaching as we visited listed homes. She did such a great job preparing us for house-hunting and purchasing that we found our home in just one weekend. Mason also has a good real estate network of colleagues and service providers who met and exceeded our expectations as they effortlessly guided us through lending, the offer, a title, the closing, and services set-up for our move-in. We hope it is obvious that we highly recommend Mason Bavin for your real estate needs and investment. She is top-notch!"

" Pat Day & Mason Bavin are great! They always go the extra mile in marketing and get their home listings sold quickly. We had an excellent experience with them in selling our home in Alexandria, VA., this past spring. Not only do they have many years of successful experience in representing clients and in home buying and selling, they also make very constructive and gentle suggestions for simple changes in decorating that will make your home much more appealing to buyers. They are professional, reliable, friendly and comforting. Pat has helped us buy and sell homes around Alexandria for the past 20 years and Mason is an Alexandria native and experienced agent. They will tell you the hard facts but they are always positive in their motivation! "

" Mason was wonderful. She was very patient and forever optimistic. She made a first-time buying experience go smoothly. She was always reliable and very responsive to e-mails, phone calls, etc. We worked with several realtors in the past and said to ourselves that we are going to McEnearney Associates next! They did not disappoint and we will work with McEnearney Associates and Mason again when we sell, if we ever do. We will recommend both McEnearney Associates and Mason to all of our friends."
– Robert & Anna

We cannot thank you enough for all of your help with both house hunting and house-selling earlier this year. Your patience and guidance was a great comfort to us as we navigated the various challenges of the real estate process.

" Pat made the entire process from open house to closing a relatively painless experience and we thank her for her help! We would absolutely recommend her services to anyone searching for a house in the Alexandria area!"
" Pat was available to help coordinate work on my home to prepare it for sale after I had moved away from the area to start my new job. Once the house was ready for sale, she sold it quickly and achieved a premium price, far exceeding my expectations. Pat was great to work with and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!"
We want to thank you for the truly outstanding job you did in selling our home. Every step in the process was well thought out and thorough. You explained everything to us in terms that were most understandable and there were never any surprises along the way!
" Pat was always available to meet with us, day or night. She made us feel like we were her first priority! When it comes time to sell our home we will not hesitate to call Pat. We are confident that she will make the process a breeze. "
" Pat Day is without question the only person in Old Town that I would ever sell property with! She knows and thoroughly understands the field and makes the entire process seem as effortless as a casual evening out. Truly an exceptional professional without equal!"
" Since my husband and I were from Rhode Island, our time was limited and Pat was aware of this and gave us an extreme amount of her time and attention. She was always professional and went out of her way to meet our individual needs. I would strongly recommend her as a truly talented agent. "
You are a professional in every sense of the word and you are the only realtor we would ever use in this area and recommend to others, which you can be sure we will do.
" Pat is intelligent and quick to act on all real estate business."
" Pat has personal integrity and moral courage of the highest sort. "
Thank you very much for everything you’ve done to help our family. We love working with you and are lucky to count you as a friend. Thank you, too, to Mason and George. You all are an amazing team. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you for your help, expertise, advice and friendship in the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. With two small children, a new job for Bob among other things, your calming, organized manner made a very stressful time easy and fun.
" We have selected Pat as our agent for every house that we have bought or sold. She has become not only a trusted agent but also a valued friend. We knew she would continue to do an outstanding job in representing us in both the buying and selling transactions. We would recommend Pat Day to anyone. "
" Pat did several things which led to the sale of our home in just a matter of days. She helped us make some small changes to our décor including the loan of accessories from her own home. She prepared a beautiful brochure which emphasized the obvious, as well as the not so obvious attributes of our home. She hosted a broker luncheon for more than 60 agents which got the word out quickly. But most importantly, she helped us set a realistic sales price based on her experience and up to date knowledge of the local market conditions.
Once our home was sold, Pat was able to work easily with our company relocation service as well as the buyers’ broker. She helped us with all of the deadlines and paperwork and kept us informed throughout the process. "
Thank you for holding out hands and making the sale of our home so painless. Without hesitation I would recommend your services to any prospective seller in Alexandria.
" From the moment we met Pat after stopping in at an open house she was hosting, she was receptive to our needs without the all too common “sales mentality” that we have encountered in other realtors. Our needs always came first. She became a trusted ally in the process. It is rare to receive services the equal of Pat’s these days, and such a dedication warrants special recognition. You can be assured that we will enthusiastically refer our friends to Pat for years to come. "
" Dear Pat,
We would like to thank you for your unmatched skill in negotiating the sale of our home.
Despite the current turbulent nature of the real estate market, your superior service and extensive experience made what could have been a difficult and angst-ridden process, very comfortable and easy. Throughout the various states of the sale, we were able to fully trust in and rely on our professionalism, experience, honesty and finesse.
As busy professionals, we understand the importance of being able to rely on the right people to act in our best interest. Knowing that you were expertly managing all the details of our home sale allowed us the freedom to focus more energy on all the other demanding aspects of our move. And yet, we always felt informed, prepared and in control throughout the process with your timely and concise reports. Again thank you for shouldering the stress and passing along to us only the information necessary for us to make the best possible decisions.
The strength and cleanliness of the multiple contracts we received are a testament to your skills in marketing, staging, pricing, and negotiating. And of course we were thrilled with the escalation addendum!
" Both Mason and Pat gave me some excellent advice to market my home and were both wonderful with all aspects of communication. "
" Mason continuously considered my “wants” in a home until I found something in my price range that I liked. She had my needs and more importantly my interests in mind. She made buying a home in Virginia easy by explaining all of the new areas of Virginia law without reservation. "
" Mason Bavin and Pat Day expertly handled the recent sale of my Alexandria townhome, and I was very happy to have had their experience and support to deftly guide me from pre-listing to post-sale. They knew the local market and were spot-on with their recommendations, from establishing the asking price through negotiating the final contract. I also appreciated their recommendations for options and tradespeople who would ensure the house was market ready. Selling one's home can be an emotionally difficult process, and this McEnearney team worked hard to keep the stress levels low by keeping the lines of communication open-- sympathetically listening to my concerns, explaining what I didn't understand and offering options for ways to proceed. As I had already purchased my next home, they understood I wanted to move quickly with the sale. Only 1 month from listing to recordation of sale; I call that success! If you're looking for real estate agents to represent YOU, I highly recommend the dynamic duo, Pat and Mason.
" I have known and worked with Mason Bavin for over ten years and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a trusted advisor and advocate. I’ve gotten to see first hand her real estate expertise. Over the course of our years working together, Mason first helped me to buy my townhouse and later helped me set it up as a rental, and then finally helped me to sell it. Having seen all phases of the process while owning this home, I am thrilled to have chosen to work with Mason Bavin and to know that she really does “go the extra mile” for her clients."
