Review

We were first-time home sellers. Matt's advice on preparing our house for sale and his marketing expertise resulted in our receiving two offers in less than a week on the market. Matt explained everything thoroughly and encouraged us through the whole process from contract to closing, answering our many questions along the way. We highly recommend Matt and his team!

Review

Matt guided us through our home-buying processes smoothly and confidently. He was extremely prompt in his responses and went above and beyond to make sure we felt supported and that we were his number one priority. Matt is genuine and dedicated to those he is representing. We have had some interesting interactions with realtors in the past, and Matt renewed our confidence in realtors and the real estate community in general. Not only is he a wonderful realtor, but he is kind and thoughtful, and someone of strong character.

Review

Matt was a pleasure to work with on both buying our new home and selling our former home. We had such specific needs (and a lot of them!) - his patience and vision was so helpful in finding a new home. Northern Virginia is such a competitive market; he was able to tap into his years of experience and negotiation skills to ensure we got the home we wanted and at a price we could afford. When it came time to sell our former home his guidance and reassurance made the process smooth and efficient. Buying and selling homes is such a personal experience - he was truly a partner in the process and there for us every step of the way.

Review

Very personable and patient. I met Matt early 2016 and we found our home late 2017. Drove long distant to meet us and gave valuable advice when needed.

Review

This was my first time purchasing a home and the experience and guidance Matt had to offer at every step of the process was invaluable! I had previously tried another realtor and was referred to Matt and he far exceed my expectations.

Review

Matt was absolutely a pleasure to work with. He was always available, incredibly responsive, and willing to walk through every detail of being a first time home buyer. Putting together a competitive offer isn't easy in a market where homes sell in less than 7 days with multiple offers, but Matt was able to do it. We were incredibly happy with our experience and would highly recommend Matt to anyone.

Review

This dude is too awesome. He should be on Million Dollars Listing tv show! Seriously, he gets everything done on time and it has been fun working with him. He took extra steps to make sure the clients feel confident in every directions. He is a must-to-have!

Review

We are a large family and have a set budget. We knew what we could afford, but it was not easy to find a home that could fit all of us. When we met Art, he looked for the size of house we needed in a range of locations. When we found a place that fit us all, he *truly* represented us and negotiated with the seller's agent to get the house at the price we could afford. We had been looking on and off for a few years, and Art was the ONLY agent who worked with the limits we had, instead of trying to influence us to pay full price for a home that had been sitting on the market for a while. He gave us honest advice during the negotiation process that got us to an agreement quickly, he directed us to an incredible lender, and he always responded within the hour to any question we had. Art provides amazing customer service - thanks to Art, we found the perfect home for us!

Review

The best agent a buyer can have! Very knowledgeble, great with communication, and an outstanding negotiator always making a priority customers’ needs. He is also bilingual. I highly recommend his service. He will not let you down.

Review

Absolutely the best I have ever worked with! Art is a tireless real estate professional who will go the distance and further toward helping you obtain your dream home within your income boundaries. Art made himself available to us literally 24/7. I rate Art a 10/10 and Thank God For all of his help!

Review

My experience with Art was very refreshing!! He is very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, funny but about business. Always on time for house tours, paid attention to what I was looking for and pointed out things in houses that I was not aware of. Not just looking for the sale, very concerned about his clients and them finding their perfect home.

Review

Ben assisted us in purchasing our very first home in Bowie MD. He had the most patience for us since it took us over 3 years to decide and finally move to our home. He is very knowledgeable, understands the market and an expert in negotiating deals. He is definitely going to be our agent when we decide to sell our current home and purchase another house. You won’t regret having Ben as your agent.

Review

Ben was very helpful is setting the expectation level into "reality". We initially discussed our desire and after a few followup meetings, were happy to have him on our side. He helped us tremendously in closing the deal and personally communicated all necessary documentations needed as we were away during final negotiations. A real asset to have on your side.

Review

Ben is an excellent realtor; a real professional. Searching a condo with him helping me was a breeze. I was confident of his advise and he was very kind and nice all the time. I highly recommend him to anyone searching a home in the DC area.

Review

Ben clearly has many years of useful experience in this area. He is attentive to detail and very accommodating to client interests - solidly helpful, and never pushy. I would work with Ben again.

Review

Ben is one of the nicest persons I have ever met. He will go above and beyond to get you exactly what you are looking for while providing his expert level opinions, which is why he is great at what he does. He is patient, thorough and truly knowledgeable in his field.

Review

Ben is great to work with. He helped me find a condo in 2015 and then a house to rent in 2017, and I will work with him in the future. He knows the area and market, and is always pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend him!

Matt's experience and Zen attitude helped us find the perfect house (and keep me calm) throughout the stress of the home buying process. With market inventory low, Matt helped guide us through multiple offer scenarios with pre-inspections and escalation clauses to help secure our first home!

Highly likely to recommend

He is very smart, intelligent, organized, and friendly person. He made a great advice in every aspect. We met very often during this process and monitor the process together. I enjoyed working with him so much.
I definitely will recommend him to my friends.

Working with Matt and his team was an absolute delight. Matt was attentive, responsive, proactive, and fantastically effective. He and his team went over and above to make our selling experience as frictionless as possible. His effective staging techniques made our listing photos and video look   exceptionally professional. His marketing materials were both beautiful and informative. Matt was quick to follow up with all prospective buyers and agents in a friendly manner in order to obtain feedback and answer questions. His congenial manner made everyone feel welcome! As a result of his hard work, we received several offers for our home just a few days after listing. All offers were significantly higher than our asking price, with inspections waived. We cannot say enough great things about Matt and his team! Thank-you!!L

Highly likely to recommend

Great agent! Very helpful and knowledgeable. Good at keeping things on schedule and negotiations. Made both selling my house and buying a new house a good experience. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent!

Highly likely to recommend

According to my friends, buying a home is never smooth, however, Art defies the laws of buying a house by making it as smooth as it can be. There was a title issue that came up in the process and Art stayed on top of it the whole time and ensured we were able to finally close our home. We would   hire him each time if we had to.
