Testimonials

We’re only happy when you are.  So it is particularly pleasing when we hear from our clients!

“Brian and his team were amazing! They thought of every small detail, and it really paid off! He went above and beyond the realtors we’ve had in the past, including managing the contractors, helping with staging ideas, and making suggestions for what to fix/clean. We did some work to the house to prepare to sell based on Brian’s suggestions, and it was so worth it! He also has great contractors that have done a lot of work for him in the past. He knows those little details that will really make a difference. Our house looked amazing by the time we were ready to put it on the market. We got 4 offers, all over asking price! I would highly recommend Brian to anyone.” Martin Fleming

“I am excited to write a review for Brian. Brian helped me years ago to find a great vacation home at a great price. It was a competitive buying situation, and if it weren’t for Brian we would not have gotten the great deal we got and we would not have had the advantage in actually securing the contract. I recently engaged Brian again for a home sale and I was again lucky to work with him. Trying to deal with a home sale and all of the rigors of my regular daily life with work, family/kids, can be very frustrating. I credit Brian for putting up with my delegating things to his team that would have been a real disruption for me if I had to do myself. Brian is a perfect REALTOR – he wears many hats, adviser, professor, facilitator, collaborate, and most important — friend” Mike Everts

“Brian and his team were fantastic to work with. My condo presented them with a unique challenge that would appeal to a specific set of buyers. Using his vast experience, he helped prep my condo for sale, marketed it brilliantly, and ultimately attracted the right buyer and the best deal for me. As a first-time seller, Brian walked me through the process and held my hand when needed. I felt that I could trust his experience fully when making important decisions and am very pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend him to friends/family and anyone needing a realtor.” Jeffrey Kaufman

“If you want to take the stress out of buying or selling a property Brian is the agent for you. He is reliable, trusted and holds a deep knowledge of the Washington DC and suburban real estate markets. He has represented me on both the buy and sell side of real estate properties and found hisadvice made a very exhausting process (downsizing from a 4 bedroom house after 20 years to a 2 bedroom condo) simple and pressure-free. I recommend him highly.” Maureen Lorenzetti

“We live in Colorado, and enlisted Brian to sell our property in the District. We were concerned that several repairs and minor improvements remained and needed to be completed before listing, yet we also wanted to return home. Brian suggested that we just leave the keys with him. The contractors that Brian arranged did beautiful work, for reasonable rates. Then, Brian prepared the staging of the property — again, beautiful work. Brian’s marketing of the property resulted in a fast sale. From our first meeting with Brian, to closing, the process of the sale of our property was flawless. Brian is absolutely first rate.” Maureen Barrett

“We recently moved overseas and entrusted Cusick Group Realtors to handle the preparation and selling of our home. Brian and John handled everything from staging our home, to handling last minute issues, to fixing unanticipated problems. They did an amazing job! They kept us informed of what was happening with the sale of our property and responded immediately to all of our questions/concerns. We could not have asked for better realtors!! Thanks, guys! Additionally, my husband worked with Brian when he purchased our home in 2007! He has referred Brian to many of our friends who have moved to the area whenever they needed a realtor. Brian has NEVER disappointed! He is always professional, courteous and honest! When we move back to the DC area, we will be using Cusick Group Realtors!” Woodring Family

“Brian was a fantastic asset during our search for and purchase of a home! He was very personable, responsive and detail-oriented, and made recommendations based on thoughtful deliberation. He focused on giving us the information we needed to make the decision that we felt was best for us and recommended making a strategic offer that was ultimately accepted. His great working relationships with other area professionals made the buying process the opposite of stressful, which was an added bonus! We would definitely recommend Brian to anyone in need of a friendly and reliable realtor!” M. Caylor

“Having only lived in the DC area a year, and not knowing who to trust as a Realtor, our friends recommended Brian. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable with our house hunting process. We ended up finding a house a lot quicker than we had anticipated, and he helped guide us through this big decision. He gave us advice on making our offer and was always quick to respond to every question. He also had great recommendations for a loan officer and inspector. We highly recommend using Brian and his team!” J. Thomsen

“Brian and his business partner were fabulous! This was my first time buying a home and they guided me through the process and helped me pick and win the perfect property to suit my needs. I never felt pressured and they were always available whenever I had questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend Brian for all your home-buying needs.” N. Schwab

“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

“Cusick Group Realtors were a diligent partner in my home-buying experience. As a first-time home buyer, I knew what I was looking for, but had many many questions about the process and steps involved. CGR demonstrated great knowledge and resourcefulness in responding to my concerns, and was extremely pleasant to work with throughout the process.” S. Roe

“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

“Cusick Group Realtors were a complete joy to work with.  They guided my wife and me through the complex process of buying and selling, expertly navigating us through the many steps, setbacks, and challenges.  We couldn’t be happier with our experience with this duo and the other professionals they recommended to us.  You are in great hands with the Cusick Group.” D. Antonello

“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.

Had my home on the market for 8 months with 0 offers. Fired my agent and hired Brian and had a contract in less than a month.” – J. Braniecki

“Brian made suggestion for extensive renovations necessary to prepare house for market, identified and supervised contractors, prepared the house for open house and placing on market and had four contract offers at the end of the first week and helped us select the right buyer. He handled all the details necessary to insure settlement 3 weeks after contract agree, and continues to interact with the buyer to insure satisfaction.” – R.  Bonner

“Brian gave good advice around staging and cleaning my condo to prepare for sale. He was helpful and knowledgeable through the entire process…” – T. Curtin

“Brian made selling my condo easy. He offered excellent advice on staging, pricing, and advertising. He especially recommended that a strong web presence would help sell. He was fantastic with walking me through the listing, contracts, inspection, and closing processes. I’m very happy to have found Brian as my real estate agent and have already recommended him to several of my friends who are interested in selling their homes.” – M. Tibbs

“Professional, encouraging, expeditious, thorough, smart, positive, eager, conscientious, caring…” – G. Heller

“Brian assisted my 90 year old Aunt (Clara Saxon) to sell her home. It took a tremendous amount of patience and persistence. Brian did an excellent job an involved me (Clara’s POA) as appropriate. I’ve sold a number of properties over the years and think Brian’s the best agent I’ve worked with.” – M. Saxon

“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.
