Cecily moved to Northern Virginia from New York City in 1969.  Although her education is in Interior Design she has always worked in sales – first in retail owning her own business in New York City and then in real estate in Virginia.  She enjoys working with both first time buyers and experienced buyers as well as investors.  With 28 + years experience she can share her knowledge of negotiating and pricing in the current market.  Cecily uses the latest marketing technology and social media when listing a property.  With the help of sophisticated computer programs, she  streamlines the buying process.  Don’t let your biggest investment fall into the hands of an inexperienced agent.  90% of her business comes from referrals of past clients and friends.  Cecily has earned the designation of a Lifetime Top Producer, a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, National Historic Trust for Historic Preservation designation and is working on her Certification for International Property Specialist.  As an active community volunteer she has been past president of the Symphony Orchestra League of Alexandria, a Smithsonian docent, Junior Friends and on the board of the Athenaeum, Founders Park and The Hospitality and Information Service for diplomats.

" Thank you so much for going above and beyond what would normally have been your professional relationship with a Seller. This was a difficult experience and your continued attention to all of us made a big difference – we appreciated the many updates and extra hand-holding! The daily watering of the front yard helped with curb appeal; the candles and plants you strategically placed in the house to make it look more homey helped a lot; and just knowing that you were able to drop in and out of the house easily to check on things gave us breathing room. Thank you again for your help and friendship – and please keep in touch! "

– Susan Murnane

" Thank you so much for all the work you did on Caren’s and my behalf. Thank you even more for your patience. As first time homebuyers no decision we had to make came easily and I am sure at times we seemed like we would never decide. I greatly appreciated your willingness to stick with us through the whole experience and all your careful guidance along the way."

– Aaron and Caren

" May I take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the outstanding services of Cecily Winchell who sold my house in November. Cecily sold my home in a few months during a tough market and made the experience a pleasant one. Cecily combines the best qualities needed in real estate: expertise, honesty, hard work, confidence and a great personality "
