As the founder of Randolph Adams Group at McWilliams/Ballard, Randolph Adams believes in client commitment and authenticity—they are the driving forces behind his impressive work and the standard he holds for his team. Adams treats his clients like family, building his business with a high level of service and trust, getting to know each client to find the best properties. Since he's a Logan Circle and Capitol Hill resident, Adams understands the market in a unique way—he's very much part of the District community.


Adams begins every client interaction by thinking about two critical factors: How can a property provide value over time, and does it make sense to add value to the property via renovation before listing it? He's creative and possesses boundless intellectual curiosity about life and business—all keeping him on the cutting edge of the industry.

For example, in a very down market for condos—and after seeing Adams’ success selling the 315 unit next door—the owners of 1210 R St. NW #314 sought his expertise in both the condo market and renovation process. The homeowners had initially listed the condo for $950,000 with little success. After consulting with Adams, who assessed the property top to bottom and suggested a $32,000 renovation to key elements of the home, the homeowners secured a contract above listing price without contingencies at $1,125,000.


Strong relationships allow Adams to be a key facilitator in both the sales and renovation process, as he works with both the homeowners and contractors to find solutions to transform properties and get them sold. Adams has a unique ability to transform homes into showstoppers, as he did with this Logan Circle penthouse. The kitchen became a gorgeous, bright sanctuary for hosting dinner or cocktail parties, after Adams suggested the installation of new floors, fixtures and other upgrades to complement the Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. The soaring ceilings throughout the home now showcase exceptional lighting, with a professionally designed interior that marries original details with contemporary touches. No room was left untouched when it came to modernizing the home.


The makeover of the Logan Circle property represents the right balance of sophistication and comfort, and it's just one of the countless success stories that Adams has had when helping clients with the renovation and sales process. Adams, who has many new listings coming on the market this summer and fall, continues to tap into his well of creative solutions for clients. Above all, this real estate leader believes in the long-term value of real estate and continues his mission of helping clients sell quickly and above value.
