" Jamie was amazing. We had a tight deadline and he worked through his family vacation to make sure we could close on time. He was always available by phone and email to answer questions. He priced the property perfectly and is the reason we received so many viable offers. "

– R. Lucas-Seller

" Jamie has been wonderful. I’ve worked with him for 5 years, most of the time remotely from overseas. We undertook a construction project to make the home ready for sale from overseas. [Jamie] selected a superb contractor and oversaw the project in our absence. No one I would entrust more with our homes. "

– Demitra Pappas - Seller

" Jamie is fantastic! We highly recommend working with him! You will be in great hands. My husband and I were first time home buyers. Jamie is so incredibly knowledgeable about EVERYTHING, a great negotiator when it comes to bidding on a house, is very honest and straightforward, patient, very helpful, and goes out of his way to make sure that you find the house that you are looking for. He is quick to respond, very accessible, will show you houses quickly so you don't miss an opportunity to bid on a hot property, knows the market extremely well, has tons of experience, and will educate you on every step the process. He even helped us with finding a contractor for work that we needed done on the house (that we had planned to do when we bought it), and has still been helpful and available to us even after our house sale was complete. In addition to his expertise, he is a very warm and friendly, and takes the time to get to know you, so he understands your preferences and what you are looking for. We felt supported and taken care of throughout the entire process and will definitely work with him again if we ever decide to buy another house. ~ Bought a Townhouse home in 2018 in Wesley Heights, Washington, DC"

" This has been my third home in the Metro DC area I have purchased with Jamie. For me, he is a perfect realtor, he is always available and shows me properties usually within a day or two of when I become interested. Two of my homes have been in MD and the other in VA. Adding that he lives in DC I think this shows that he has knowledge and experience in all of the local markets. When I need another home I will definitely reach out to him. As an added bonus, the lenders and lawyers he works with are top notch, so if you need any guidance he will easily be able to assist. ~ Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Bluemont, Arlington, VA 22205"

" Jamie came highly recommended by my neighbor (who had worked with him to purchase her condo), and I am grateful for her advice and for the great combination of Jamie's professionalism and expertise. Jamie is very knowledgeable about the DC market. He responded to questions (and--if you're like me, worries) and raised issues I hadn't thought of. Beyond the technical/process stuff, he also understands the emotional dimensions of selling a home and moving on. Jamie went above and beyond what might be expected of any realtor: he researched and identified a place that could de-fog two large windows, he delivered the windows up to the place (relatively out of the way in Silver Spring), and even picked them up after the repair, delivering them to the contractor Matt Stone (whom Jamie recommended) hired to spruce up the unit. From our very first meeting, I knew that Jamie would be able to guide me throughout the sale of the condo. I was especially happy with the description and photos he selected for the MRIS listing, demonstrating his great "eye" and wonderful way with words. ~ Sold a Condo home in 2017 in Bloomingdale, Washington, DC."

" Jamie helped my husband and I buy a home in November 2014. We were moving into the Washington DC metro area from a very different type of real estate market in another state. Jamie helped us learn a new market quickly, and patiently showed us a variety of homes and neighborhoods. With his help, we were able to narrow down our search to a more manageable size, and we were very pleased with how quickly he understood the qualities we were looking for in our search – especially walkability and good schools. I appreciated the time he took to walk through the customs and procedures of real estate transactions in the area, which differ somewhat from the market we were coming from. He was always respectful and patient, and I would highly recommend him for a sale or purchase representation in the Washington metro area. ~ Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Cherrydale, Arlington, VA"

– Julie Elmer - Buyer

" Jamie is the perfect blend of professional knowledge and friendly personality which made the process less stressful and fun! Jamie was accommodating and patient as we changed our needs during the search and purchase of the home. He understood what we were looking for and how to get it at a fair price. Jamie was the perfect realtor for us! Friends and family would tell us that buying a home is one of the most stressful experiences one can go through but Jamie made sure to clearly communicate each step of the process in order to ease our stress. He helped us find our dream home I could not be happier! I would recommend Jamie to any person/people looking for property. He is easy to talk to, always professional & courteous, and truly understands his clients needs. It was an absolute pleasure working with him."

– Peter G - Buyer

" We have had outstanding experiences working with Jamie twice in the last five years — once when purchasing our home and more recently when selling it. Jamie is extremely knowledgeable about the DC market and the process that it takes to close deals. He provides the right level of information that one needs to be able to make good decisions, and spends as much time as you need to discuss various options. He is extremely responsive, as well as being considerate and personable. We have recommended Jamie to friends and colleagues over the years, and we will continue to do so enthusiastically. "

– Ann W - Buyer & Seller

" I owned a condo in Washington DC and decided to sell it at a bad time of year (holidays coming). Jamie was totally on the ball and helped me arrange for painters and having the unit staged for sale, using people he had used before in similar situations. Jamie was sensitive to the costs involved and always had estimates sent to me for approval. All of this while I sat in California! Jamie’s communication was excellent, walking me through the paperwork for the tenants to file, the papers for the listing, and the closing papers. I would use Jamie again with no hesitation. Job well done!"
