Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Silver Spring, MD.
When we were informed that the owner of our DC rental wanted to sell, we turned to Colin after our friends had a positive experience with him. Colin helped us understand and assert our tenants' rights so we had time to look and he was wonderful in answering all our questions as first-time buyers. His advice was instrumental in putting together a winning offer on a larger house and he helped us close in short order with the assistance of a mortgage broker he recommended. I was impressed by Colin's responsiveness and even-keeled counsel throughout the process. Navigating the crazy DC market was much easier with Colin!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.225M in Chevy Chase, Washington, DC.
Colin is an excellent agent and we can't recommend him enough. We recently moved from the West Coast to Washington DC and we came on several house hunting trips. On one of the house hunting trips our scheduled agent had a conflict and contacted Colin to show us around. He cleared his schedule with less than 24 hours notice and spent an entire Saturday showing us DC and Maryland homes.

From that introduction, he became our partner in finding a home. He showed us innumerable houses across DC and metro areas, educated us about neighborhoods, future development potential, transit corridors, places to visit, etc. etc. He was very patient with us, understood housing contracts very well, assisted on numerous failed offers, and was willing to negotiate aggressively and persuasively on our behalf.

If in the future we have a need for a real estate professional we will contact Colin first and I suggest you should as well.

Bought a home in 2013.
My wife and I spent a few months with a not so helpful agent who had an inconvenient location. We decided to look around for another agent. We met with Colin only because his office was close to our apartment and work. We immediately liked Colin. He was very informed and confident. We were impressed with his grasp of not only the real estate knowledge but also with financing, economics, and home construction. We were really surprised how quickly things progressed after our initial meeting. Colin toured several homes with us and luckily we found a house that we liked within the first week. Colin's skills really took over at that point. He did an excellent job negotiating with the selling agent and walking us through the purchase. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone seeking to purchase property in the District.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Stronghold, Washington, DC.
Colin was very responsive, made sure to follow up and helped me stay calm and focused during the process. I started to look in May 2013, but wasn't really ready to start looking until July. Once I was ready though, Colin was available to visit properties, talk about financing, and refer me the the right people to speak with to make it all happen.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Petworth, Washington, DC.
Colin helped us find our home and negotiate a price we are still quite happy with. He coordinated an incredible inspection that left me confident in the purchase, and continued to help resolve the inevitable small issues that we discovered after moving in! He also helped sell a condo for more than I originally thought we'd be able to get! He's very responsive, (even on vacation!!) and knows his stuff when it comes to best areas to buy in DC. And even better... he patiently answered all my questions and concerns as I was very pregnant throughout the buying and selling processes! Not just anyone can deal with such an anxious client!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Petworth, Washington, DC.
We very much enjoyed working with Colin. He was extremely helpful and responsive to our myriad questions and concerns. Colin was able to steer us towards a fantastic new home, and helped to make the process quick and painless (or as much as buying and selling a property can be).

We would definitely recommend Colin to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the DC region.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Bethesda, MD.
Working with Colin was a terrific experience. As first time homebuyers, Colin really worked with us to educate us about the process and form a first rate team to help us fine and buy our first home. He was always responsive and available to answer any and all of our questions and joined us for open houses and spent time with us educating us about different neighborhoods and helped us find the right one. I really cannot recommend him more highly- a great advocate for your real estate needs!
