    Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Lorton, VA.

    I know I will never find an agent as good as Colin Johnson. I have dealt with a few Real Estate Agents before - but Colin is in a different ball park as the rest. He impressed me from the get go and continued to do a better job with each situation that arose until our house had sold. We did it together but I heavily replied on his expertise and opinion. He knows what he's doing, and despite me being a control freak, I trusted him and with a lot of patience and hard work, we sold our house to the right buyers for the best price in a good short time! There were a lot of things that happened out of our control, but taking his advice, the situation worked out above and beyond what I hoped. He did a lot of conversing and negotiation on our behalf and i'm not sure anyone else could have gotten us a better deal. He knew exactly what we needed and wanted out of this - we told him the first time we met - and he never forgot. It was like he had a database of our info from every conversation and was able to recall it as needed. I have never had a realtor show up with statistics on selling houses as to know what to expect - he did which made it so much easier to know what to expect. Colin was clear, upfront, direct and truthful. He never falsified anything, he wasn't vague, he said what needed to be said , when it needed to be said. When he came over before the professional photographer showed up to take the pictures - he came 2 hours early, in shorts prepared to mow our lawn and vacuum the house. Who does that? Who helps buyers like that? Colin did and Colin does! This guy was amazing and restored our faith in good honest hard working people! He comes HIGHLY recommended by my husband and I.  More Less

    Colleen it was amazing to work with you on the sale of your home. Having a great partner to get you the best outcome is key. Selling your property involves juggling your move, family needs, and property value. I pride myself on listening to those components and achieving the best I can for you and your property. I am glad we didn't settle on the WRONG situation and we were able to line you up with the RIGHT win!

    Helped me rent a Single Family home in Shaw, Washington, DC.

    Our house caught fire and we sustained catastrophic losses. We needed to find temporary housing, and fast, while our house was under construction. Colin helped us find the perfect temporary house for us in record time; we were able to move into our new place in under 72 hours from when we first contacted him. We couldn't be more grateful.  More Less

    Moving is stressful enough and moving when you are tragically force out of your house and home. I am glad I was able to coordinate all of the pieces between you, your insurance company, property management company, and owner to make this unfortunate situation a little more reasonable.

    Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Barney Circle, Washington, DC.

    We enjoy working with Colin and look forward to working with him again. We began working with Colin this spring, looking for potential places to live in and eventually use as an investment potential. One particular property caught our eye that had a lot of potential, but some complications regarding an estate. Colin advised us throughout the process and informed us of the concerns he had with the situation and we continued to look. Colin brought us to many properties on and off the market. In fact, the house we bought wasn’t even on the market. He managed to bring in contractors to provide estimates before we began negotiating. He's very consultative in his approach, providing great advice on how to build wealth through real estate investments.  More Less

    Joel it was amazing to work with you as you grow your personal investment portfolio. It is unique in this market to partner with an agent who is not just looking for the CURRENT value, but consider the FUTURE value. Many opportunities exist in all kinds of markets whether it is increasing or decreasing and creating a strategy for the specific situation is what sets me apart from many of my peers. I look forward to many more opportunities and exciting discussions in the years to come regarding your real estate needs.
