Testimonials – Buyers

David Shotwell helped me purchase my first home! And as scary as I expected it to go, it really was not all thanks to David. He was readily available to answer any of my questions (sometimes twice and some very silly). I would highly recommend David to anyone looking to buy a home and especially first time home owners!

Tony is the best. He guided us through each and every step of the process even though it was not our first purchase. Tony made what could have been a stressful situation go as smoothly as possible. We have consulted Tony regarding other properties since our purchase with him. We would use no one else. I, in particular, am VERY hard to please. Tony surpassed even my expectations. That speaks volumes.

Avery was a spectacular Agent. She provided valuable insight into our desired neighborhood, both because she did a thorough job researching our needs but also because she is a resident of that neighborhood. She successfully navigated us through the various tax implications of our purchase, walked through our home inspection with us and fully discussed the results after the fact. She promptly responded to emails and phone calls, and we very much appreciated her low-key nature and charming personality. She was also an aggressive negotiator on our behalf and we received key strategic advice which allowed us to submit a winning bid for our home when over four other offers were on the table. I would highly recommend her to friends, family or colleagues – they are in safe hands!

Tony is fantastic. He’s no pressure, very knowledgeable, and has a great deal of patience. I was a first-time homebuyer and Tony was very patient with me throughout our search. Going through the home buying process with Tony I always knew I was going to get an honest answer to my questions and he had my best interests at heart. Five Stars!

I cannot imagine going through the buying process without an agent like David who pointed out new opportunities, calmly explained lengthy loan documents, patiently listened to my concerns and provided thoughtful, intelligent and actionable feedback.┬áMy buying process was well-planned, swift and without stress, primarily due to David’s diligent followup with all parties, his consideration of my needs and concerns and his funny and lighthearted company throughout the entire cycle.

Tony helped us buy our first condo in 2007, and then sell that condo and buy a new house in 2011. The condo and the house were totally different types of properties, in totally different neighborhoods, and 2007 and 2011 were totally different real estate markets. Each transaction had what I would consider unique complications – when buying the condo the selling developer wasn’t ready to settle on schedule; when selling the condo we were under a time crunch; when buying the house we had a significantly complex financing arrangement. Tony was invaluable to the process each and every time. Tony’s knowledge of DC, of the real estate market, and his transactional experience over the years made our three transactions with him possible, as he was able to handle the complexities that came with each. It should say enough that we’ve come back to Tony for each next transaction we were ready for, and that we have referred him to at least two friends I can think of who have used him – one for a purchase, and one for a purchase and subsequent sale.

I started working with Avery after Redfin couldn’t show me a place at times that worked for me. Avery was always willing to work around my schedule and was always very responsive to answering my many concerns. DC is a pretty rough market to buy in, especially if you have a budget and are picky like I am. It took 5 offers before I finally got the place I’m currently in, but Avery stuck with me throughout the process and I think her willingness to drop everything to see a place and write up an offer asap got me my current place.
