What our Clients are Saying

Mike M.

Stephen and Mary Katherine were our buyers’ agents when we purchased our new home in McLean. We positively love our new home, and we credit Stephen and Mary Katherine for making it happen for us. The process of purchasing a home in this market is not easy. The competition for homes is fierce and you need experienced agents who know the market and are willing to fight for you. Stephen and Mary Katherine stood by us and fought for us every step of the way. They were unfailingly patient and let us know at every step in the process that their only concern was that we found a house that we loved. They made us feel like their top priority.  Stephen has a great deal of knowledge about the building trades and steered us to only consider homes that are well constructed and did not need a lot of work. In homes where some work was needed, Mary Katherine worked tirelessly to get us information about the cost of making desired renovations or repairs, and she obtained estimates in what seemed like real time. Together, they are truly an unbeatable team.

After interviewing a few realtors, I hired Stephen to sell a home in Fairfax. I have worked with a dozen realtors in the last ten years and none come anywhere close as professional, honest, and dedicated as Stephen. He went well beyond what you would typically get from a realtor and he has great advice on achieving the best return.

Stephen listed my home for $100k more than what another realtor wanted to list it for. Within a week, we had it sold for $30k over ask with multiple bids. I can't imagine a better realtor in the area. You will be happy if you work with Stephen.

This is our second experience working with Stephen. We’ve both bought and sold homes with him, most recently we sold our home with Stephen- he made the process simple and stress free.  He was extremely responsive and available 24/7 to answer all of our questions and concerns.  He worked with our schedule and created a safe environment for showing our home during the COVID pandemic.  He not only helped us stage the home for pictures and showings, but went the extra mile and even power washed our patio.  He made sure we were informed and satisfied every step of the way, from negotiating with the prospective buyers to signing the paperwork during the closing. We wholly relied on his experience and knowledge, and as a result we found the right buyer and sold our home sooner than we had even hoped.  I would use Stephen again and would recommend him to anyone who wants a stress free experience.

I had no idea what I was doing as a first time home buyer, Stephen made the entire process easy. He answered my endless questions at all hours of the day.  When I didn’t know where to start with getting a mortgage he pointed me in the right direction.

I wanted to look at the same property multiple times before making an offer in a competitive market Stephen was available to show me the house even when my request were slightly over the top.  Stephen not only booked multiple showings, he reassured me by scheduling and bringing a home inspector along to an appointment for an “informal inspection.”  Stephen had already pointed out most of the problems on a previous showing, and he knew how much they’d cost to fix and was ready to recommend someone to do the job.

When we made an offer Stephen talked me through every step, he was very aware of what would make our offer competitive, and we still felt like we were getting a good deal. I went from very hesitant about the entire home buying process to feeling confident when we made an offer.

I highly recommend using Stephen as your realtor. You will feel like you are his only client and that he may never sleep. He will make the entire process as smooth as buying a home can be.

Stephen helped my family buy our first home in 2016 and we were very happy with his service and professionalism. We ended up using Stephen to sell that home in 2020 and purchase a larger home for our growing family. He was able to get us multiple offers over asking price, even during COVID-19. He used professional photographers and had a 3-D scan of our home included in the marketing package. Stephen got us a rent back so we had extra time to find our new home which he also helped us find. He is very knowledgable and was very patient with our family's needs. I would highly recommend Stephen if you are looking to buy or sell your home.
