Featured Review - Buyer
Stephen and Mary Katherine were our buyers’ agents when we purchased our new home in McLean a few weeks ago. 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. Initially, we were the winning bid on a house that did not pass the home inspection process. Mary Katherine and Stephen never missed a beat. At our request, they very quickly extricated us out of that deal and began showing us other properties that fit our parameters.
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. They never put any pressure on us and were so helpful in making sure we got just what we wanted. 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.
To me, the two most important qualities I am looking for in a realtor is finding someone who respects your time, and then when you find the right property, someone who will fight for you. Stephen and Mary Katherine only showed us quality properties, and not once did we feel they had selected showings that wasted our time. Once we finally found the property we wanted to purchase, they advocated for us strongly and gave us the very best representation possible.
My wife and I give Stephen and Mary Katherine our highest recommendation. We will recommend them to all our friends and family members, because we know they will be in the best hands possible.
