We worked with John over a period of several months as we searched for our first home in D.C. As a long time D.C. resident, he is highly knowledgeable and quick to offer reliable insights. He is aggressive when negotiating with sellers and other agents. We were thrilled to purchase our newly renovated townhouse at $20,000+ below the list price." -- Rachel L.
