A native Washingtonian, Pierre utilizes his extensive real estate expertise and local market knowledge to guide home buyers and sellers throughout the entire real estate process. He also represents investors and developers through each stage of a successful purchase or sale—from identifying target properties to “deal-appropriate” due diligence, financing, permitting, and renovation or construction consulting. What Pierre loves most about the real estate business is the client relationship. There is nothing he enjoys more than truly getting to know his clients and solving that puzzle of fitting the client with the perfect property. He takes great pride in what he does and feels lucky to have a career that enables him to do what he loves.
Prior to becoming a real estate professional, Pierre was an auditor & CPA with Deloitte and Touche in McLean, Virginia and an accounting manager for Ruesch International in DC. These experiences honed Pierre’s analytical skills and positioned him as a leader for the real estate industry. Pierre is also a 2007 graduate of the CIA (Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York). Pierre has many passions, but few rival his love of food & wine. This passion was fostered at his family’s restaurant in Adams Morgan (La Fourchette). You may even find him helping out in the restaurant’s kitchen on occasion! Pierre lives with his beautiful wife Anna and daughter Zurie in Chevy Chase, DC with their Bichon mix, Bodhi. True to his Washington roots, Pierre is a graduate of the Catholic University of America, and proud alumnus of Gonzaga College High School (class of ’89) and Holy Trinity School, in Georgetown.
MY CONTACT INFORMATION
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PIERRE
“I had previously tried to sell my Co-op in Washington DC but with no success. It was a complex Co-op building with many house rules that deter buyers. A co-worker introduced me to Pierre. Right from the start I realized I made the right decision to move forward with him. He was articulate, patient, professional and available when I needed him. He secured the best deal that I would receive on this property. I was extremely happy and would recommend Pierre.
Will & Julie
After meeting and starting a conversation with Pierre at an open house, we took instantly to his friendly manner and insightful answers to our questions. As first-time buyers, we knew very little about the overall process, but Pierre put us instantly at ease and gracefully handled everything we could throw at him. The home we purchased was a bank-owned property and had multiple offers, this made the closing process much more of a hassle than any of us expected. Pierre kept a calm manner throughout the entire process and did an excellent job keeping us informed and offering advice whenever possible. Even after our purchase, he has served as a great resource for renovation ideas and contractor recommendations. We feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Pierre and hope to do so again in the future!”
Heather & Brian
“As first-time home buyers, Pierre’s patience, responsiveness and knowledge of District houses and neighborhoods were his essential qualities for recommending him to friends and first-time home purchasers. Pierre successfully navigated us through researching homes in our desired neighborhoods, walking us through potential houses with a keen eye for original features and remodeling, bidding attempts, the home inspection, successful negotiation techniques and ultimately settlement to help us find our perfect home in the District.”
Melika & Franck
“Pierre did an amazing job for us. He provided the kind of end-to-end service, attention to detail and expert advice that buyers and sellers of high end properties with busy lives really need. Putting your house for sale and getting the right offer from buyers, finding the house you really want and getting it at the right conditions, figuring out your finances, and making the transition from one house to another is tough and stressful, but not with Pierre.”
“I’d like to thank you personally for assisting me in preparing, marketing and renting my property. I’ve been impressed with your efficiency, thoroughness, and friendly professionalism throughout the process. The personal attention you provided to help me through legal challenges and renovation, while I reside thousands of miles away, has been invaluable. Your business insight helped me to make informed decisions and culminated in an outstanding property investment. I will highly recommend your services to family, friends and acquaintances.”

“Pierre Chauvet worked with us, as our realtor, when my wife and I were purchasing our first home. From the beginning of the process and until we had the keys in hand, Pierre was there every step of the way.
We have had friends who described difficult experiences in buying their homes but we had the complete opposite experience with Pierre.
Pierre made us feel like we were his only clients, always available for questions and answers. We are so happy with our home that Pierre found and the skill he used in getting us a great price!”
“Pierre has helped me sell two properties in the District. Pierre prepared me for the selling process, explained what needed to be done to get maximum value for the properties, and was efficient each step of the way. Not only was Pierre a top-notch professional throughout the process, but he also handled every issue that came up so I knew I was in good hands. Best of all, there were no surprises and the properties sold quickly. I would highly recommend Pierre for anyone’s real-estate buying/selling needs.”
