Tim helped me buy my first place, a one-bedroom condo in Adams Morgan, beating out an all-cash offer. I came to Tim with the place already in mind. After it was clear that I liked the place, rather than pushing me to rush into something rash, Tim encouraged me to return the next day with fresh eyes  and go to the open house the day after that to gather more information and make a considered decision. The ability to have a cool head in a potentially high-pressure situation--like the DC real-estate market--and help his clients make thoughtful decisions is a great quality of Tim's that I found valuable throughout the process. As for the home-buying process itself, Tim explained the various steps and important considerations in manageable chunks. Given that everything happened in less than a week, Tim's management of process considerations was extremely helpful, keeping me afloat amidst the deluge of first-time-homebuyer info. Tim approached this like a great teacher--presenting something to consider, letting me think about it, and then having an informed discussion about what to do next later. Tim's experience was helpful in assessing the place, physically, as well; I wanted someone who knew more than I did as far as potential structural issues, and Tim fit the bill. He was detail-oriented enough to do things like looking under the kitchen sink, turning on the water in the shower, or offering his assessment of the super-old HVAC unit. After the place was mine, Tim was more than happy to discuss the more fun stuff, like paint colors, as well. In sum, I highly recommend Tim to anyone looking to buy a home in DC.

Tom has a 6th sense in knowing how to read situations. His team (Tim and Justin) are very talented and most importantly he helped us position our asset to get a record breaking number. Highly recommend.

Tim helped me buy my dream home and sell my existing home, and exceeded my expectations in both transactions. He negotiated a great price for my new home and got me an above list sales price for my old home. He also helped me navigate a renovation that resulted in a top of the market price for the  house I sold. It would Ben my pleasure to work with Tim again because he delivers great results and is just, truly, a lovely person. I've recommended him to multiple friends and they have found him to be just as professional and personable as I have.

We were a little nervous about having to sell our house quickly in the middle of December, which we knew was the slowest season of the year. My friend recommended Justin and Tim to help us out, and from the first moment we met with him we knew we were in good hands. 
As first time sellers, our main concerns were typical; selling our house for top dollar with minimal costs on our end, being informed and in control, selling our house ASAP. Not only did Justin meet all these concerns, but he exceeded every expectation we had in a realtor. We always felt very informed on everything we needed to know, and were given all our options when choices needed to be made with absolutely no pressure to do anything we weren't comfortable with.
We had to leave the state before the house was even on the market, which meant there were projects that we didn't get around to doing before we left. In addition to helping us find great deals on painters, electricians, and inspectors for projects we wanted to get done before selling, Justin did paint touch-ups, changed out outlet face plates, he even moved 15 bags of leaves we had left behind that didn't get picked up in time for our open house. These are just a few examples things he did for us on top of everything else. As helpless as we felt being across the country, we knew our house was in the best hands.
Justin and Tim explained in our first meeting that their goal was to make people fall in love with our house from the moment they pulled up to the curb. They were very attentive to detail and style, and I could tell their priorities in selling our house were exactly where they should be. They had beautiful photos taken, it was staged perfectly, and our house had multiple offers over our asking price in less than 3 days. This was especially exciting since it was December and the market was slow!
The negotiations went as smoothly as possible. We knew there would be inevitable hiccups during this process (our house was built in the 1950s) but it was obvious that our realtors were in their element as they skillfully advised us through some tricky demands from our buyer. They found good solutions that left everyone happy and content. I was expecting this processes to be incredibly stressful, but it was quite the opposite. 
I would absolutely recommend Justin, Tim, and Tom to the home owner/buyer looking for a genuinely good person who is genuinely good at what they do.

We were actually recommended to Tim Barley and Co. by some friends of ours who had just purchased a home. Looking back on the process as a whole, we couldn't imagine having any other Realtor!

Tim was very patient with us and understood our needs and limitations. We went into the process knowing very little about buying a home, but Tim was there to help us every step of the way by answering our questions and providing a substantial amount of great advice!

When we viewed homes with Tim, he made it a point to show us options of varying prices and neighborhoods so we could better grasp the DC market. This helped us hone in on location and maximum price.

We were thankful to be able to lean heavily on Tim when it came to our offer and negotiating terms. This is where his expertise shined as he navigated us through the muddy waters of difficult sellers. His responses were always more than timely and courteous, and we can't imagine where we'd be if we had gone with anyone else.

Tim truly fought for us and what we wanted in a home and I couldn't recommend him enough!

Another five-star review for the Tom Faison-RE/MAX Allegiance Team!

I listed my Capitol Hill residence with this team knowing that I would get great results. I based this on the ten years I lived there and watched this team list and sell many of my neighbor's properties at very competitive prices in a relatively short period of time.

They have a very focused strategy for getting your property ready, staged, photographed, and promoted that works. We had more people at the open houses that they held and visiting the online listings than any other house on the market in my zip code. Their service is highly professional, personal, and results oriented.

If you need to list your house in DC, go with them! Tom has a very keen and objective sense of your property's value--it's strengths as well as it's weaknesses--so that he can market it to a wide range of prospects that gets the momentum going from the day you meet until the closing.​
