Realtor DC/VA/MD, Licensed in District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Kingman Park, Washington, DC.
Primary point of contact: Marc Ross
I came across Jenn and her partner Marc when reviewing recent sales in our neighborhood, because we wanted to work with a realtor that had a good track record in our area (Capitol Hill East/H Street NW). They helped us properly price it (thank god for that, because without their guidance we would have listed it for about 20-25K less), and it attracted three offers within five days, ultimately selling over asking. Other than selling at a great price and selling fast, I really appreciated that they always answered emails promptly and thoroughly, they got the house ready without us having to do a thing (painting, cleaning, etc), and the simple reality that they are genuinely nice people to work with. We will definitely be returning to them when we are buying and/or selling next.

Jenn's level of customer service is outstanding. She and her staff went above and beyond my expectations in helping me get my property ready for sale, in dealing with problems that arose, in arrangements with service providers, in dealings with the buyer, and in all other stages of the transaction. They made it as easy as possible for me. They kept in great contact with me by phone and email the whole time, keeping me timely apprised of all developments. Extraordinary!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.
We had a very positive experience with Jenn and her team. Jenn is super knowledgable, responsive and gets the job done. Buying a home in the fast-paced, competitive DC market can be quite stressful. Jenn guided us through the process and helped us secure a wonderful home. We highly recommend her.
Isabella and the team were easy to work with. She was always available, knowledgeable of the Washington, DC area, and professional. Isabella walked me through the process as a first time home buyer. Thanks!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $950K in American University Park, Washington, DC.
From Trinidad to AU Park, we covered it all (ultimately purchasing in the latter) and Jenn was nothing short of exceptional throughout. We began our process by interviewing several top performing agents and picked Jenn based on her reputation, knowledge of the local market, and her willingness to actually listen to us and try to understand our needs. As first-time buyers, Jenn treated us with the utmost patience and professionalism during the course of a search that evolved and then radically expanded. She was always extremely responsive, diligent, and a true problem-solver (an underestimated skill). Jenn was also a fierce advocate for us and was instrumental in preparing bids for properties that attracted a lot of interest (we won out in the end!).
Her team (Marc, Nikki, and Isabella) also deserve a shout-out as they were all fantastic. Marc, in particular, made himself very accessible and shared a lot of his insights with us, which was appreciated. They provided a key back-stop when we needed help on short notice.
For us, buying a house ended up being a fairly extensive process, and Jenn helped make it as smooth (dare we say fun?) as possible. At the risk of overstating it, picking Jenn as our real estate agent was the best decision we made... other than buying our house, obviously!
Sold a Cooperative home in 2014 in Southwest Waterfront, Washington, DC.
Jenn was great from the beginning. She is very enthusiastic and doesn't make you feel like you're just another sale. Both she and the staff of Reishman Real Estate are nothing but the utmost professionals and are very good at what they do. Jenn and her team handled everything for my husband and I. They stayed in contact with us from day one and kept us updated on what to expect next which was great as we had no experience in listing and selling property. Jenn was aggressive in her marketing and in trying to get us the most money out of the transaction. Her expertise in handling properties at River Park in SW DC is highly commendable and made the entire transaction as easy as possible for us. I highly recommend Jennifer Smira to everyone!
Sold a Other home in 2014 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.
Jenn is a diligent hardworking professional that knows the NW DC real estate market. As a real estate professional myself I had high expectations of Jenn and her team and they delivered. We had great rapport and Jenn understood my needs in terms of acheiving a target sales price that was fair for the pace of the local neighborhood. We formulated a plan and she and her team executed. Jenn and her team are on the ball and you would be doing yourself a big favor by having Jenn on your side of the buy or sell side of the transaction!

Isabella and her team were so wonderful to work with. Isabella was very responsive to my needs and was also very patient with me as a first time home buyer. She is professional, knowledgeable and very personable. Thank you so much, Isabella!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Mount Vernon Square, Washington, DC.
I had been searching for a 1 bed condo in NW DC for a while, and when I decided to commit to buying, I looked for an agent. I scanned reviews on Zillow and contacted 4 different agents, out of whom Jennifer was the first to respond and show actual interest in helping me out.
I worked with Isabella from Jennifer's team and she was great! She was ready to show me as many condos as possible in my budget in all different areas of NW DC, from Columbia Heights, to Petworth, to Shaw, to Mount Vernon Place, to Foggy Bottom, and Friendship Heights/Cleveland Park. She was very patient, gave me good advice on property values, and answered all my questions in a timely manner.
When we were working on my offer, I got to meet Jennifer who also had her input. I have to say that I never thought I'd be buying such a great place after only 3 weeks of working with an agent.
Jennifer Smira's team was very friendly yet professional, and I loved working with Isabella in particular!
If you're looking for an agent then I totally recommend working with Jennifer Smira and her team!! Do not think twice!
