We're not from around here (said with the most mid-western southern accent you can conjure as you read this). We needed someone to help us find a house while we figured out if we were going to stay in the DC area or look to move out of the area after the shock of retiring from the Army wore off. We started working with Hank looking for a rental home in 2009. We can't quite remember how we found him, but we think we were interested in one of the houses he was listing and kept calling him for help - and he kept answering and saying "sure, I'd love to show you that one."
He helped us find the perfect home in the right location then. I'm sure we weren't the easiest clients then - we probably looked at 20 properties over several months and asked countless questions.
As we rented, we continued to ponder buying a home - we just weren't really sure where exactly would be the best location with job sites and the like. Hank worked with us for most of 2010 to find the right home in the right location at the right price.
We closed when our daughter was barely a month old.
Hank didn't end with the sale - he offered recommendations from everything from movers to lawn care to plumbers to handyman on speed dial. Since we're not locals, we don't really have a great network of folks to turn to for referrals.
We do plan to leave in 3-5 years and will list with Hank when we go. We do reach out from time to time just to say hi and check in - as does he. I consider him a friend after the countless hours we've spent chasing the perfect house before we found it. (Even if he IS a Redskins fan!)
If you're looking for someone who will understand what you're looking for, who will not show you what you're not interested in, who will be your partner not a pushy sales guy, and who will actually show up for appointments and communicate with you..... Hank Cassi will definitely not disappoint.
I had an excellent experience working with Hank. He was very responsive to all of my requests. He also explained the entire process in very simple terms. Hank is a very courteous person and an excellent and extremely knowledgeable Real Estate agent. I will definitely use him on my next purchase.
On Wednesday, March 21st Hank sent us the usual email of homes on the market. We saw one we really loved! My husband and I went to take a look at the outside. We knew that this was the house we wanted and just had to see inside! I called Hank. We were supposed to have a meeting the following Wednesday to learn about the home buying process, instead, Hank stayed up with us until 2:00 am explaining the process because we wanted to put an offer on this particular home. He was there every step of the process and during all the bumps and bruises with financing. He answered my million questions daily. He recommended things we should change in the home (locks and such) and provided us with all the numbers needed to set up utilities. He was there during the inspection and gave helpful advice on thing we should look for. By April 20th we were at closing! We moved into our new home that weekend and love it! Thank you Hank!
Sold a Condo home in 2011 in Adams Morgan, Washington, DC.
I worked with Hank to purchase my property in Washington, DC last year. The logistics with purchasing the place were incredibly difficult and I was stressed, worried and uncertain. The moment I started working with Hank, everything became so much easier. He somehow managed to eliminate all the complication and made the process entirely stress-free. He's incredibly knowledgable in all aspects of real estate and worked every possible angle to ensure that I was able to not only purchase my home (against a lot of competition), but that I got it for the best possible price. In addition, throughout the entire experience, Hank was in communication and understood the emotion I was feeling around this first time experience. Honestly, I could not have decided to work with a better realtor.
I have known Hank both as a friend and and real estate agent for many years. As the owner of a title company, I have seen first hand the experience, committment and dedication Hank exerts on behalf of his clients. Hank truly cares about the experience for his clients and ensures that he puts all of their concerns and doubts to rest. Further, Hank served as my agent for the purchase of both of my homes and the sale of my first home. In viewing over 100 homes the second time around, Hank exhibited extreme patience in helping my wife and I to find the perfect home. If you are looking for an agent that will go to bat for you; take you through the ups and downs of finding a home; and truly care about finding a home that is right for you and your family, I would unequivocally recommend Hank as your agent.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Columbia, MD.
We met Hank in 2006 and came highly recommended by our friends. Hank responded immediately and warmly. It felt like we'd known him forever. Having moved several times due to work requirements, we were never treated so professionally like we were by Hank. He listened to what we wanted and when we were ready for househunting, he took everything we said into account and only showed us exactly what we were looking for. In a matter of weeks, we moved into our home. Four years later, it's time to move and once again...Hank to the rescue! We tried one realtor assigned by our relocation company and that resulted in nothing! We lost our relo contract and were left standing there with the house sale in our hands. We tured to Hank and within 2 weeks of listing our house, we had a buyer! Hank has been with us throughout the whole process. We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor....and now a friend! I highly recommend Hank! You won't be disappointed.
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Germantown, MD.
Hank is a seasoned real estate agent who truly focuses on each of his client's specific needs. His local market knowledge is unparalleled and, having handled hundreds of transactions, he is an expert in every aspect of a real estate deal -- from negotiating, to reading, writing and understanding contracts, there isn't a more professional agent in the business. In a business that often requires immediate response and often at odd hours, Hank is ultra responsive and is virtually always available. I would recommend Hank with absolutely no reservations. T
Hank was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our needs and wants and sought out properties that would suit our family. It only took us 3 days out looking at houses before we found our dream home. He did a great job negotiating an amazing price for us. We always felt he had our best interests in mind and he made the entire experience simple and enjoyable. Thank you Hank!
Hank is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the DC Metropolitan area. Hank was my listing agent when I last sold my townhouse and got me the highest price in the neighborhood at the time. Great suggestions on prepping a home to sell. Connected with various lenders, insurance agents and settlement attorneys that can make it a one stop shop for buying or selling a home. HIghly reccommend using Hank for your real estate needs.
