Tom and his team are absolutely fantastic. They go the extra mile with their clients and get to know them and then work within the parameters of your budget and goals. I have now bought three homes with them and sold two. Each transaction has been better than the last as they have grown more and more familiar with our needs as a family over the years.

When it comes to DC real estate nobody has a better feel for the market. Because of that they are able to put their clients in the best possible place to achieve their goals. You really can't get better!

As the son of a Real Estate Broker and as first time home buyers in DC, my wife and I had very high expectations for the realtor that would be assisting us in the buying process.

Tim exceeded all of them.

We were new to the city so we needed someone who had a deep understanding of Real Estate in DC. Every question we had for Tim was met with a helpful, nuanced answer that exemplified his expertise from working in this area over the past decade. His knowledge helped guide our search and gave us insight into the different pros and cons of the neighborhoods (and streets) that we were considering.

Second, we needed someone who took the time to listen to the vision for our home and could get us property showings around our busy schedule. After our first couple of meetings, Tim was able to grasp our core values in the home buying process and suggest homes that met our criteria. Since he is clearly liked and respected by many of the selling agents in the area, we were able to view properties when we needed to.

Finally, we really needed a skilled negotiator. As we discovered, the housing market in DC is extremely competitive and we didn't want to get excited about a home just to hear that the seller decided to sell to someone else. Tim got our contract ratified within hours of putting down the initial offer.

In sum, if you're buying or selling a home in the DMV area, hire Tim Barley. He is an extremely competent and helpful realtor who is full of integrity. You won't regret it.

Tim and Justin were essential in helping me purchase a townhome in Southeast DC. Their knowledge of the area, various architecture styles, and market made going through this process as a first time homebuyer much less stressful...and their constant flexibility to get out and look at properties was  a huge advantage in a fastpaced market like D.C.

They did a great job selling our house and helping us buy our new house. On the sell side we were under contract within 5 days with multiple offers, and on the buy side the negotiation could not have gone more smoothly.  They know Capitol Hill so well- so easy working with them!

We bought a single family home in Capitol Hill  in Spring of 2017. Tom was excellent in all regards.  In particular, he fully investigated our wants and needs, integrated them into his search efforts on our behalf, and then was able to deliver real house prospects to us - no  wild goose chases! His knowledge of the market and the area proved invaluable, saving us many hours and heartaches along the way. In the end, he helped us find a perfect home for us. Thanks Tom and the Real Estate in DC team!

Justin Tanner was instrumental to our family achieving our goal - to find a family home on the Hill, in our price range in a very strong sellers' market. We set a six month timeline for ourselves and Justin found the right fit for us in just four months. We met Justin and the Tom Faison team at an  open house. Justin was friendly and proactive and followed up to suggest similar properties that could have been of interest. When we met in person, he listened to us when we explained our priorities, he shared information on relatable properties and always showed us properties that were realistic for us. Given his expert knowledge and personal familiarity with the Hill - not to mention zeal for his work and lightning responsiveness - we chose to work with him. Justin has a good sense of humor and is very relatable for first time home buyers who are NOT operating at the top of the market (although we know he can be helpful for that market segment as well). We benefited from Justin’s good relationships on the Hill, which provided us with the lead on the home we ultimately purchased as well as for comparison shopping for ancillary services related to home buying. He also coached us through two unsuccessful offers where bidding exceeded our maximum budget. He is passionate about the neighborhood and his field, and it shines through in his work. If / when it comes time for us to sell our home, we will choose to work with Justin and his team.
