Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.

Looking for real estate in Washington, DC is inherently stressful, but Chris made the entire process easy and seamless. Whether he was organizing showings for places I found, or pulling up listings that I hadn't seen yet, he patiently traipsed around DC with me and showed me properties until I found the ONE. Once I decided to buy, Chris' expertise really shined through, from negotiation to settlement. Additionally, he was able to connect me to fantastic loan officers, less expensive condo insurance, and a title company. During the months we worked together, Chris was extremely responsive whether I was calling, texting or emailing him. He never made me feel like a burden! I would highly recommend working with Chris if you are interested in buying in Washington, DC. I know I will be telling all of my friends and acquaintances to choose Chris!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Logan Circle, Washington, DC.

I would recommend Chris to anyone looking for an attentive and knowledgeable realtor. We took a LONG time finding a property that we truly fell in love with and throughout that time, Chris was patient and considerate. He didn't pressure us, but did keep in touch and help find properties that suited our wants and needs. He took the time to get to know us and, as a result, guided us according to our tastes and toward what was in our best interest.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Bethesda, MD.

Chris is a dedicated real estate professional with very good follow up skills. He is calm under pressure and thoughtful in helping to outline deal negotiation strategies. He knows the DC market quite well including Bethesda. I recommend him highly to any first time or repeat buyers. He was a pleasure to work with.

Found a tenant for a home.

Chris was very responsive and helpful in listing my condo and renting it out. He was very pleasant to deal with and worked hard in renting out my unit. I would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Sold a home in 2014.
Primary point of contact: Yusef Khatib

I have been working with Yusef for 10+ years, both buying and selling properties. He is one of the most knowledgeable and hardworking agents I have ever worked with. He has extensive knowledge of the DC area as well as current market trends. We had a town home in Reston that required complete renovation. Yusef was instrumental in helping me find contractors to perform the work and also assisted with upgrade decisions. He truly is the best when it comes to remodeling a house that will appeal to home buyers and knows exactly what upgrades to make to sell the house at maximum value. Yusef always goes above and beyond what is required and I could call him anytime, day or night. He is reliable, dependable and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Yusef Khatib if you are looking to buy or sell your house!!!

Bought a home in 2014 in Annetta Gardens, Columbia, MD 21045.
Primary point of contact: Yusef Khatib

Yusef Khatib has been of great help to us during the buying process.... he is very responsive ..... very professional...he guided us "first-time home-buyers" painlessly through the process.... He has nothing but the clients interests in mind. He is very knowledgeable, experienced, communicative and works within the parameters you give to him.

Even though our first offer on a short sale house didn't go through.... he quickly found us another house that we were able to close within only three weeks from the day we submitted the offer.

I highly recommend working with Yusef, as we would not hesitate to work with him again whenever we decide to move to a bigger house.

If I could give more than five stars, I would, because Yusef Khatib is truly a phenomenal real estate agent.

Bought a home in 2014.

I live out of town and needed to purchase a condo in DC. I selected Chris to help with the process based on his excellent reviews on Zillow. I feel fortunate that he exceeded my high expectations. Chris has been competent, efficient, and friendly yet professional. He listened to what I was looking for and showed me only properties that met my needs. He even anticipated some things I would discover I needed once I got to the area, such as security, storage, and parking. Because I was living out of state during the loan process, Chris willingly facilitated the inspection, repairs to the property, and a closing with neither the buyer nor seller present. I highly recommend Chris and look forward to his helping me sell the property in a few years.
