“The DC real estate market is highly competitive, and very complex. When I first interviewed with Brian, I expressed interests in property that ranged from acres of land in Darnestown to condos in Dupont Circle. I remember him saying acres of land sounds great, but how are you going to mow the lawn? I thought using goats would be a reasonable solution. Was I ever so naive. In other words as first time home buyers we had no idea what we were doing. Brian enabled us to navigate the market and helped us localize our search to specific areas that suited our interests. He is responsive, extremely knowledgable, very patient, and has seemingly boundless enthusiasm and energy. We must have toured 60+ properties and we never felt pushed into a decision, rather he listened to our needs and helped us mature. He is more of a teacher, mentor, and friend than a realtor. Although as a realtor he walked us through the entire process, from negotiating a bid, to explaining the appraisal report, to closing. Brian always advocated for us, and we never felt alone. He also has an extensive network of professionals from mortgage brokers to home inspections, they were all very easy to work with and highly competent. We recommend Brian enthusiastically, he will be one of the most sincere and helpful professionals you have ever worked with!” M. Lehmann
“Absolutely the best agent in the DC area. Immensely knowledgeable, patient and forever available whether its a difficult contractual question or simply just talking you down from the anxiety real-estate transactions can induce from time to time. I regularly recommend Brian to my closest friends and family.” J. Katz
“I highly recommend Brian! He made my process as a first time home buyer incredibly smooth and I felt comfortable throughout the process. He is organized and always on top of things! He is knowledgeable and always willing to share. I always felt well informed. Brian is personable and truly a pleasure to work with.” P. Patel
“Working with Brian was simply awesome. He was responsive, knowledgeable and patient with us first-time homebuyers. Because of the competitive market we had to put offers on six houses before lucking out but Brian was with us every step of the way. He was always helpful and didn’t pressure us in any way.” Townhome buyer in Washington DC.
“Brian was absolutely fantastic! He was professional, incredibly responsive, and really took the time to understand what I was looking for. Brian was extremely knowledge about the city and its complex housing market. He guided me through properties in all of the neighborhoods I had asked about and many beautiful ones I never knew existed. Brian has an optimistic outlook and the imagination and ability to help you see the property’s true value – beyond the packed closets and dirty floors. And to top it all off, he treated me like family. It was simply a wonderful experience. I have already recommended him (highly) to two of my friends!!” Condo buyer in SW Washington, DC.
“We bought our first home through Brian. We had a lot of questions but he was patient with us, even as we asked the same questions, seemingly over and over again in numerous ways (about contractual legalese language, for example). He recommended a good strategy for us to consider when placing a bid on our home. We took his recommendation and believe his expertise contributed toward us being selected as the buyers for the property. Additionally, we had some complications with our mortgage company (delays and unnecessary requirements) right up to the final days of closing. He helped facilitate communications with the mortgage company on our behalf in the final days. This was valuable since my husband and I did not have time during the workday to call to find out what the latest hang-ups were in the mortgage processing timeline.” House buyer in Silver Spring, MD.
“I had a great experience with Brian. He was enormously helpful in answering my questions, provided smart advice and held my hand throughout the entire process. Highly recommend!” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“Working with Brian was a complete pleasure. As a first time homebuyer, I couldn’t have asked for a smoother process from first meeting to closing. Brian is a joy to house hunt with. He has great energy, a good eye for details and potential, savvy about issues that would need a close look by an inspector, and a good sense of when a property just doesn’t feel right. He has been incredibly responsive and patient with even the most off-the-wall questions. Additionally, his professional connections have been excellent. Every resource of his that I’ve utilized has been superior and led to an incredibly straight-forward offer to keys process. I’ve already recommended him to several people and will do so well into the future.” House buyer in Colmar Manor, MD.
“I had an excellent experience working with Brian. I called him and asked to see a home he was listing, had an offer on it three days later, and my offer was accepted two days after that. He always returned calls and emails immediately and gave me excellent advice. And I enjoyed discussing decorating ideas with him too! I would definitely recommend him!” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“Brian was very patient with us as first time homebuyers. He was informed about the market and ultimately helped us get a great deal on our house. His professionalism and accessibility was outstanding and we’d highly recommend him to anyone seeking a realtor.” Townhome buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“Being a purchaser from out of state, I needed an agent who knew the area. Brian was very knowledgable about the neighborhood I was interested in and the requirements of purchasing a unit in a coop building. The transacation went very smoothly with his help.” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“Brian was the perfect agent. He listened to what I was looking for, sifted through the listings, took me to hidden gems I may have overlooked on my own, and was so patient during the entire process. This was my first time buying a home and I had plenty of questions. Brian helped me understand the process and find the perfect place that fit my needs. I would highly recommend Brian to any of my friends looking to purchase real estate.” Condo buyer in SW Washington, DC.
“Brian was very responsive, knowledgeable and flexible. In other words, very easy to work with. He also felt like a friend and not a realtor. I felt he gave very honest feedback and would recommend him to any new buyer.” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“I think Brian is just the best, in terms of a smooth home buying process, professionalism, and being there for you as an agent.” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“We chose to work with Brian after reading comments from clients who had worked previously with him. We were in need of finding a home for our son to live in while in grad school and were very pressed for time. Other recommenders mentioned how prompt, responsive and knowledgeable Brian was and, indeed, we found this to be true and critical to our situation. We also found Brian to be extremely personable and flexible. We travelled to DC from out-of-town and, without much advance notice, Brian arranged for us to tour the numerous properties we were interested in. After finding a property that we hoped to purchase, Brian helped to make the negotiation process as smooth as it could be and we always felt that he was our advocate right up to closing and beyond. We recommend him enthusiastically and without reservation.” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“He was very friendly and made an effort to learn my tastes and preferences and was honest when he thought a particular property wouldn’t work or didn’t feel right. He was patient with me and responsive throughout the process; he also went above and beyond what was required of him as an agent. I am so very pleased with my purchase and would recommend him to anyone seeking a realtor.” Condo buyer in NW Washington, DC.
“Brian did a phenomenal job of seeing me through from the exploration stage to closing. I am a first-time homebuyer, and was pretty nervous about the whole process. Brian came to our first meeting with a list of properties I had sent him as well as another list of similar properties that he thought I may be interested in. He was very knowledgeable about different neighborhoods in DC as well as mostly all of the management companies (I was looking at condos/co-ops). This was very helpful because it was very clear that he was not trying to sell me on the most expensive property – but instead explained the pros and cons of each place and let me decide what was most important. Brian always answered the phone when I called or e-mailed (sometimes several times per day) and was always in the loop about exactly what was going on. I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent, and strongly recommend Brian to anyone in the DC area looking to buy a new home.” Condo buyer in SW Washington, DC.
