Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 in Park View, Washington, DC.

I have worked with Sean twice in the last 2.5 years. Both times have been excellent. Sean represented us when we purchased a home in Petworth/Park View in 2011. He was highly responsive in handling issues from the seller as well a bidding war. At all times, he responded quickly to our calls and emails and was always providing updates on the process etc. Just this past month, we again worked with Sean to sell out condo in Columbia Heights. He did an excellent job researching comps in the area to determine the right price. Sean advised us on staging the unit and managed the coordination of that for us. He listed the condo on a Friday and began fielding offers the next day. He also managed a highly trafficked open house for us. He kept us constantly in the loop on offers coming in and interest from Brokers. Sean communicated quickly and effectively with other brokers to set deadlines on offers. He reviewed and summarized all the offers and advised us the best one. Throughout the settlement process, Sean was in contact with the buyers agent, Title company etc to ensure a smooth and timely settlement. In the end, we ended up selling the condo for 25k OVER asking. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sean to anyone buying or selling. Our overall experience, twice now, has been excellent.

Showed home in 2011 in Glover Park, Washington, DC.

Sean has been helping me find a perfect place. I have yet to complete the process, but so far he has been attentive and prompt about finding potential properties that fit my criteria. He also makes viewing property very easy - he is very friendly, flexible with his time, previews the properties beforehand so there are no surprises, and has been creative about finding different types of properties that I had not considered before.

Bought a home in 2011.

Sean is a very attentive and thorough agent. He is always quick to answer my phone calls and never hesitates to show me a property even when I ask him to go the extra mile. I am happy to have met Sean and very satisfied with his work. He found the perfect house for me and my family and I can't thank him enough. He was also able to haggle the price down significantly but handled the listing agent with care and respect. I hope that all realtors work as hard and honestly as Sean does and I look forward to recommending him in the future.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 in Brightwood Park, Washington, DC.

As a first time homebuyer, Sean was there to hold my hand all along the way. He was very accessible before, during, and even after the purchase of my condo! In Washington D.C., it is really important to have an agent that truly understand the nooks and crannies of our local neighborhoods, and have an eye on both residential and commercial development. Sean has a knack for spying a great property and investment!

I met with a few other agents prior to working with Sean, and they all seemed to stress low balling offers as a strategy to get a great price. When it was actually time to put in an offer, Sean recommended coming in with a strong offer based on comps in the area. My offer was accepted outright. In the end the developer and listing agent both appreciated and recognized a fair offer. Sean's diligence and integrity went a long way and he was even able to negotiate all of my closing costs and an additional parking space.

Sean made such a major and scary process for me very painless! He is highly recommended!
