Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Colonial Village, Arlington, VA.
Primary point of contact: Vladimir Dallenbach
I had the pleasure of working directly with Vlad as my agent and Rosina as my broker. If you contact Rosina I hope you have the same opportunity, although I'm sure Rosina is incredible during the showing process as well.
Vlad was the picture of a perfect real estate agent:
Knowledgeable, patient, sympathetic, fiercely hard working, and a wildy successful negotiator. The experience was like having a body guard, a real estate professor, and close friend in my corner the entire time.
I was a first time home buyer. In a financial decision this large I was overly wary of anyone who was involved in the process. I picked out all of my own properties at first and I interviewed several real estate agents. When I met Vlad, I was viewing a property on the wrong side of town, and I was struggling to keep my head above water with all the information coming my way. Within 10 minutes he had my vision in mind and we drove straight to a property that was a better fit than any I had seen on my own. With very little lead time, he had me pointed in the right direction.
I decided to go with District One Properties because Vlad’s experience and knowledge made me feel far more comfortable than any other agent. I fact checked everything he said in our first, second and third meeting, and he was dead accurate. At the beginning I was still wary and felt like I needed to stay in the mindset that I was in this process alone. As time went on, I found myself calling him to talk about far more than just what house to see next. He was infinitely patient and always helpful . I recommend District One because they somehow managed to break down my fear that I was just a business opportunity, and I truly felt like he wanted to help me succeed. I walked away from this home purchase with a new sense that successful real estate agents put people first, and their success is in the success of those they represent.
After finding the right place, Vlad stayed several steps ahead in the process of getting us to close. District One properties under the leadership of Rosina and Vlad, has made me a very happy home buyer and I made a life-long friend in the process. They operate with integrity and ambition. Not only would I love to have them represent me again, if I wanted to be in real estate I would call them for a job. Vlad exudes a spirit of helping people that is undoubtedly the reason for his success. I learned a great deal about how customer focused businesses should behave. A tremendous experience!
I still get letters from him, checking in and making sure I am staying on track with my personal goals.
If I could do it again, I would back off and let District One drive the whole process to success with my eyes closed. It was an absolute pleasure working with group.
The house, the location, the price, the loan….it all goes without saying that they nailed it. This review is for the parts that you can’t quantify. Thank you both!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $725K in The Palisades, Washington, DC.
We were relatively new to the DC Metro Area and had been exploring different areas prior to make a decision to buy our home. We were not clear of what we wanted.
Vlad was great, he took us to various neighborhoods and allowed us to explore. He was always patient giving us advice regarding the pros and cons of different choices.
He is also a great listener which becomes an asset because he was always in-sync with our needs.
When we made the choice he was fundamental in the negotiations, letting us know on what to ask for and helping us achieve a great deal. He was always involved throughout the whole process, he helped us find a great lender. Rosina & Vlad are knowledgeable, experienced and a really nice person to work with.

She did an absolutely wonderful job providing an immediate response to our questions and doubts.
She did go above and beyond to make sure that our home buying process was smooth and stress free.
She has kept in touch with us after we closed , she always calls, email or send us a post card to make sure that we are doing great.
She is amazing and we are very happy we were able to work with her.
Bought a home in 2014 in Aurora Highlands, Arlington, VA 22202.
Rosina was very responsive and got things done quickly. She also made some good suggestions regarding home inspectors and contractors. This was the first time I bought a home from HUD, and I needed to close quickly. There were a couple of snags along the way, but Rosina was very proactive in trying to make sure that I could close as quickly as possible. One thing that I was not aware of was that all of the utilities had been turned off, and it took 3 days to turn everything back on. I did not realize this until only about a week before the HUD deadline for the home inspection, so that was a bit of a scramble. It would have been nice to know about that sooner in the process, but everything still got done in time. The other thing we missed is that my unit is right below the common room. I didn't bother to look at the building amenities and so didn't realize that until after I moved in. It's not a huge deal since no one is usually there, but it would have been nice to know that before the purchase. Aside from those items, Rosina was on top of everything, and I would definitely work with her again.
I worked with Vladimir Dallenbach. He was very thorough, conscientious, knowledgeable, responsive and honest. I'm glad that we found him. With Vlad's assistance we purchased a home in Alexandria, Virginia.
Bought a home in 2014 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC 20001.
I had a unique situation where I needed to get a place quickly. I had been working with Redfin and was not impressed with their services. I called Vlad based on a referral I got from a coworker. From the moment I met Vlad at the first home we saw he was exceptionally attentive to my needs. His knowledge of the DC area was impressive and he was extremely personable and amacable. He's navigation of the process and negotiation skills saved me a lot. Most of all Vlad is a genuinely good person that you can trust. Thanks for everything Vlad!

Vlad and Rosina were the best! I am a first time home-buyer and truly felt like they were looking out for my best interest. Vlad was always available to answer any of my questions during the process and after. When looking at properties Vlad would always give me his honest opinion and advice on each property. After only three months I was able to find a condo in DC which matched all of my criteria. In addition, Vlad was very patient and persistent in helping me obtain a VA loan, which was a fairly complicated process. I would highly recommend Rosina and Vladimir for their professionalism, quality of service, knowledge, and customer service.
