Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Glen Allen, VA.
We used Damien Cummings to buy our new house as well as sell our old townhouse. Damien was excellent as both a buyer’s and seller’s agent. He helped us find our perfect new home, as well as sell our townhouse in less than a month after it was listed. Throughout the process, Damien was consistently responsive to our needs, had a good understanding of what we wanted and liked in a home, kept in constant communication (if you find it easiest to communicate by text messaging, he is the guy for you!), and always had our best interests at heart.
As a buyer’s agent, Damien was quick to pick up on our expectations about what we were looking for in a new home, and was prepared every time we met him with several new listings that he thought we would like. He was patient during each showing, and gave us a clear idea of the pros and cons of each property. When we found the home we loved, Damien helped guide us through the negotiation process beautifully. Knowing how much we loved the house, Damien’s priority appeared to be in securing the property for us and he helped provide balance and perspective during negotiations so that we got what we wanted but still did not appear too aggressive in our negotiating. We were out of town during the home inspection but trusted Damien enough to attend the inspection in our lieu. He kept us updated about the inspection and follow-up repairs and communicated regularly with the seller’s agent to ensure that all work were completed in a timely manner.
As a seller’s agent, Damien was thorough and thoughtful in analyzing the market and pricing our house reasonably and appropriately. During his initial visit, he gave us clear guidelines and great suggestions on how best to stage and show the property, did a wonderful job with the photographs and brochures, and made sure to make the listing available in as many avenues as possible. Thanks to Damien’s excellent marketing, we had 10-12 showings in less than three weeks and went under contract in less than a month! He was more aggressive as a seller’s agent during the negotiating process, and made sure we were not giving in too quickly to some of the buyer’s demands. He communicated regularly with the buyer’s agent, and ensured that the process moved along smoothly and quickly. We got our asking price and could not be more pleased with the timeliness of this sale.
Overall, our experience with Damien was very positive and we would highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in The Fan, Richmond, VA.
Damien worked with us for about 6 months. We wanted a condominium in either Church Hill or the Fan districts of Richmond. We needed 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which made the inventory a bit sparse. Damien worked with us until we found what we wanted. We was patient with us during the search. Once we found what we wanted, he was very good getting us to a contract and exceptional in getting us to closing.
Damien was wonderful. I couldn't of asked for a better experience. He made everything go as smooth as possible even when there were bumps in the road from other parties such as the bank or the inspector. He helped us get the best deal and was an amazing negotiator.
Damien is very detailed oriented and he is always available and willing to help. He is always patient and answers questions even when I bet I asked the same more than once. He prepares in advance and that gave me peace of mind.
