Why Wydler Brothers

Why Wydler Brothers

“You have to talk to these guys… they’re different.” Hans & Steve Wydler founded Wydler Brothers 20 years ago to provide their clients with the highest level of professionalism, integrity and intelligence in the industry.  Since then, they have grown their business to consistently be one of the top teams both in the Washington DC region and the entire United States.
Along the way, they’ve achieved numerous awards and recognitions, including being recognized as “The Most Innovative Real Estate Agent in America” (Inman, 2014), written several articles for The Washington Post, authored a book, “Inside the Sell”, co-founded a real estate tech company which sold to Move, Inc. in 2013, and built Wydler Brothers into a highly respected boutique brokerage with 70 agents and employees which they sold to Compass in 2019. In fact, Wydler Brothers is currently the #1 Compass Team in Washington DC, Maryland, & Virginia. Oh, and in 2015, Hans managed to survive a train crash (Hans 1, Amtrak 0).

Get to Know the Wydler Brothers

Who are the Wydler Brothers? Sure, they’re award-winning agents with an outstanding reputation, but they’re also just brothers … They take their role as trusted advisors seriously, but never themselves. Or at least, Hans doesn’t take Steve seriously, and Steve doesn’t take Hans seriously.

Petra guided us through the entire process: she taught us about the intricacies and the hidden jewels of the DC-MD-VA region and the trends over the last few months. She helped us focus on what we needed to have for our home. She wisely and patiently gave us insight into understanding the value of patience and being assertive when one wants a home in a historically crazy market. She was incredibly respon...

There are many levels of stress in life and buying a home is one of the big ones. When I first met Theo, it was a very comfortable experience. He is very professional, dressed the part, very intelligent, experienced, honest, efficient, and followed all COVID-19 safety procedures. The bonus is he has a laid-back way of looking at life with a relaxing sense of humor. He was very calm and had a lot of patie...

Cathy was great to work with and has gone the extra distance for us even after we closed on our home. She provided great market insights for us and was very proactive in communicating with everyone involved in our home buying process (listing agents, our mortgage lender, HOA leaders, contractors, and I am sure much more). Cathy was very responsive to all of our emails, texts, and phone calls and was very...

Hans Wydler is by far the best Realtor® I have ever worked with, in my years of buying and selling homes in the Washington area. About a year ago a friend (former Realtor®) recommended Hans Wydler to me, as she was so impressed with his successful track record of selling homes, including hers. From our first meeting during which Hans pledged to me that his team was there to serve me, and they were, to th...

My husband and I couldn't recommend Steve more highly. Steve assisted us 5 years ago with the purchase of a townhouse in Arlington. That experience was so positive that we stayed in touch over the years and when we were ready to move again, we knew without question that we wanted Steve to work with us on both the sale of our townhouse and the purchase of our new house. Steve and his team are truly fantas...

I can't recommend Theo enough. He was extremely informative, flexible, and responsive throughout the entire home buying process. He responded to texts and emails quickly no matter what time of day I sent them, encouraged me to take as much time as I needed to think things through, frequently reminded me to message him if I had any questions about any of the forms or processes, and always had a concise an...

Petra was a perfect agent! First of all, she helped us win a large, single-family, end-unit rowhouse with a front and back yard in a top DC neighborhood during the insanely hot housing market of March 2021 (something like that would get 15 offers above asking in 1 day!). We were only able to get this dream home because she used her great network to get us a pre-market deal - if this house had gone to mar...

We used Cathy Johnson to sell our home in Darnestown and she was outstanding! Selling your home can be a very personal experience as we found out. We had spent the past 15 years in our home and had raised our family there so it was important that whoever helped us sell our house saw the beauty in it the way we did. Of course, it was also important that we received a competitive price for our house! Cathy...

Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with on our recent home purchase. From the first meeting until the ink was dry on the closing documents, he walked beside us in each and every aspect of both our home purchase and home sale. He took the time to really understand our likes and dislikes, our must-haves, and our negotiables and built a strategy around them. He was a rock-solid negotiator and fought har...

Working with Hans was a true pleasure, in fact, my wife and I occasionally praise professionals in entirely different disciplines whom we admire by referring to them as "the Hans of [fill in the blank]." He is exceptionally smart, practical, and manages the process from start to finish. Further, his gift as a tactician inspires confidence that you will get the best result possible in the most efficient m...

His keen business sense comes out in the marketing of our property, his negotiation skills and the overall process. Our house was initially not selling, so we ha...

Cathy is amazing! She is patient, (we actually visited 35 homes and that doesn't include the ones she sent for us to preview), she is honest in her feedback and she is very knowledgeable in the market. We were not sure of the location where we wanted to move exactly, but through her careful listening skills and her attention to detail she found us the perfect home! Her extensive interior design backgroun...

Steve Wydler and his team are simply the best at what they do. My husband and I have worked with them in buying and selling our home. During the home-buying process, Steve was patient, attentive to our requests, kind, and detailed in letting us know the positives and negatives in each home we considered. When we were ready to sell our home, he was meticulous and determined to get us the best deal in this...

I tried to rent a house on my own but after a lot of runaround and a couple of rejections I turned to Petra who helped me translate my vague search for a ”small house, big yard, half hour commute and within my budget” into a short list of options — including in neighborhoods I hadn’t considered — that were MUCH better than I had found on my own and then she reassured the landlord’s agent my BIG dog would...

I met Katie for the first time at an open house in the Bethesda area. As my husband was there ahead of me and it was her second time to repeat the whole process. To me, she showed the house the way as if she were to buy it and every word she mentioned appealed to me. I met her again with my husband on another occasion for a newly-built townhouse. It was on the weekend but she didn’t mind, she was with us...

We worked with Steve on the purchase of a new home in McLean, and the sale of our existing McLean house. Steve and his team did a terrific job of helping us get our existing home ready to sell, and it sold before the open house. He and his team helped us evaluate the homes on the market, handled all of the negotiations, and we ended up with the house we wanted. Steve did a great job explaining the proces...

I had a fantastic experience working with Cathy to sell my property, after being referred by my sister who also loved working with her! Cathy was extremely proactive, knowledgeable, honest, and of course pleasant to work with! Little things like calling me just to say that there was no update really put my mind at ease when I was wondering if the prospective buyers had responded to us. I have since moved...

I highly recommend working with Cathy Johnson. From the initial meeting, Cathy took the time to understand my concerns and what I was looking for in a property. She always responded to my questions and phone calls and took the time to thoroughly explain the process. I never felt any pressure to make a decision or make an offer. Once I had found the property I wanted, she worked very quickly to get the of...
