We highly recommend Justin as a buyer’s agent, particularly if you’re looking for a home in the competitive Capitol Hill market. He never pressured us to offer more than we were comfortable offering. After being outbid on our first several offers, we came to appreciate Justin’s understanding of what it would take to win a sought-after home in the area. He encouraged us to see a home that fit our needs but was priced outside our comfort zone. It didn’t have the curb appeal of the other homes we tried to buy that escalated far above their list prices, and Justin helped us negotiate a purchase price significantly below the listing. As we began our many home improvement projects after the purchase, Justin continued to help us with contact information for reputable contractors (painter, electrician, etc.) who work in the area. Now nearly six months later, we are very happy with our purchase. It has taken extra work to get the home into shape, but it fits our needs well and is more home that we expected to afford. We appreciate the continued relationship with Justin and expect to use him as our agent when it comes time to sell.

Tim Barley is top shelf.  We highly recommend him and the entire Faison team for both buying and selling on the Hill.  We met Tim in June 2017 while checking out a friend's house on a whim.  We had been sitting on renovation plans for our own house for a year but were indecisive on breaking ground because of a latent desire to buy.  As we were falling in love with the house Tim was showing, he told us to slow down, take deep breaths, and make a plan.  For the next few months, Tim worked hand in hand with us, learning what made us tick, and indulging our foibles.  On the buy side he got us into homes day of listing and listened carefully to what we liked and didn't like; on the sale side he nailed the details with the help of his incredible associate Kendall Milano and their team of contractors.  Six months after meeting him, we were in a new house on the Hill with triple the square feet of our old house, and we sold our old house for 10% above list price.  We felt completely taken care of the entire time and can't plug Tim, Tom, and the entire Faison team enough.

I primarily worked with Tim Barley to purchase a new home as well as sell my previous home, both in Hill East. Tim and the rest of the team were fantastic throughout the entire process. I felt well-taken care of and had all of my questions answered quickly and completely. I came to trust Tim's knowledge and experience with the DC market and listened to his advice, while also feeling that my voice was heard and my concerns understood.
Tim helped me find a great new house (and was amazing at helping to take care of a few surprises that popped up after closing), and I'm sure that much of the success I had in selling my old home quickly and for a price that made me very happy is attributable to the skill of Tim and his team.

Having bought and sold a lot of real estate in Washington, I know firsthand the penalty you pay for choosing the wrong seller's agent.  When I went to sell my house on Capitol Hill, I decided I needed the absolute best agent who had the broadest network and deepest knowledge to get my house sold in record time.  That person is Tom Faison.  If they gave Nobel prizes for real estate, Tom would have one.  I gave Tom an incredibly tall order: sell my house while occupied by our family of five (three kids under the age of 6!), get me a 2 - 3 month rent-back, and set a record for price.  He delivered on all fronts and never even put my house on the market. Without Tom, I would never have been able to meet my real estate goals.  There are many different reasons to choose a real estate agent, but if you are looking for the one who will deliver, then Tom is your man.

We were extremely happy with Justin and the team at [Tom] Faison. They were by far the most knowledgeable agents we have worked with - they understand the area, the housing stock, and the market very well. Very responsive and helpful, and great negotiating. Would highly recommend!

We made the right choice with Justin. As first-time homebuyers, we had lots of questions and lots of things we didn't know. Justin was hugely helpful in answering our questions and explaining each part of the process. He knows the DC market very well and brings a wealth of knowledge of things to look for in a house. He was very responsive, and when it came time to put in an offer, he and Tim helped us quickly put together a winning offer. Most importantly, he was a guy we knew we could trust, and we would recommend working with the Tom Faison team.
