    Bought a home in 2013.
    Rod and Julio were recommended to us by friends who worked with them to buy their first and then second home. They described Rod and Julio as being knowledgable, patient, and great to work with. Even after just our first meeting, we definitely knew our friends were right. As first time home buyers, Rod and Julio were extremely patient with us, explaining everything about how the process works. They were responsive to all our questions and never let us feel like we were alone in the process.

    When it came to looking at properties, we worked mainly with Julio. Julio is energetic, professional, and personable. He made us feel like we were a priority and always was able to fit us into his schedule to check out new listings when requested. Once we found the property we wanted, Julio worked behind the scenes to keep things moving smoothly. We highly recommend working with him!

    Bought a home in 2013.
    We met Julio at an open house in DC. I found him friendly and sincere. We weren't sure if we were going to buy the property right away but when we knew we were interested I got back in touch with Julio. At this point we had not chosen a DC agent to work with. Julio was knowledgeable and if he didn't have the answer he sought it out for us. He forwarded everything to us that we asked for within what seemed like minutes. He encouraged us to call him if we wanted to get back into the property before going to settlement for measurements, etc. He was on top of our lender, supporting us through the entire process. I know I would recommend him and I will use him again in the future when the need arises.  MoreLess

    Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Mount Vernon Square, Washington, DC.
    Julio helped me buy my first home. I had met him earlier through his fellow agent and he had showed me a couple of places, but didn't end up working together until much later.

    He showed great knowledge of the real estate market in DC, has a ton of experience, knows the processes and pros and cons of various options inside and out, and is very responsive and gives you all his time whenever you need it. He's an agent you're not always hunting down, but one who is there for you.

    He showed great skill in negotiation, and helped close what may have turned out to be a difficult deal.

    As I was a first-time home buyer, he also educated me on a lot of things and was very patient with me, not only with my lack of knowledge but also sometimes my own time lag in getting back to him.

    Here is where I will describe what stands out about him. You'll find a lot of agents who know their stuff and are go-getters, so that is a common trait. What is less common is the attitude that Julio has.

    I was a first time home buyer and someone who's schedule is a bit unpredictable due to work. He was not only patient in being persistent with me and educating me on the process, he never pushed or pressured me into any decisions that I wasn't comfortable with. He would describe the pros and cons, give his recommendation, and then step back and let me make up my own mind.

    Furthermore, what is the most important part, that I saved for the last, is the trust element. There were a lot of details that I didn't have the time to look into and wasn't familiar with as a first time home buyer, and I was able to trust him to make the right decisions for me, and was able to count on his advice as to what is important for me to spend time reading and what is not.

    He found me someone for my financing who was just as good, and we worked as a very good team.

    Julio has my unqualified recommendation.
