Sold a home in 2014.
Colin was enjoyable to work with, extremely knowledgeable, and really responsive. He was able to answer all of my questions, and as a first time home-buyer, I really appreciated his thoughtful explanations as I got up to speed on all of the ins and outs of the process -- from the search, to the negotiation process, to closing. I would and have already recommended Colin to others.

Sam it was great to work with you; my goal is to always listen to my clients and not dictate the home buying process. In a tight inventory market it is key to have all of the components of your real estate team in place and I am glad I was able to help you achieve YOUR GOAL of home ownership!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Falls Church, VA.
Having a good real estate agent helps tremendously in finding a desired home, to state the obvious. I worked with many agents in the past and I do realize what a big difference it makes when you work with a great agent. Colin Johnson walked me through every single step of house shopping and buying. He explained to me how house shopping and loans work. He subsequently made a list of my needs and wants. He narrowed down my search, which was a huge help because I did not know where to start. Once I found a place, which I am very happy with he sent me a list of companies I had to contact and things I had to do before my settlement. I'm a very busy professional and didn't have the time to do everything myself. Colin coordinated and made all the phone calls on my behalf. It was very easy and great working with him. He is very responsive and awesome! You will not be disappointed working with him. He is very knowledgeable and caring. When I was being impulsive and was about to make a wrong decision he was patient and would tell me his honest opinion. Also, he negotiated with the seller until he got the price of the house down to meet my budget.

Helped me rent a home.
Colin was prompt and punctual, easy to talk to, and very open about the whole process. He was also flexible and down-to-earth and my move was the easiest it has ever been, and I found a great place that fit my needs because of it. Thank you, Colin!

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.
