Tim Barley is a true professional in his field.  We just bought a house with Tim as our agent.  We got exactly what we wanted and got a very good deal.  As we went through the house purchase process, Tim kept us informed about developments and was extremely sharp when it came to writing our offer.  In this market, he is what we needed.  

Although we used Tim as a buyer's agent, my sense is they are even better sellers agents.  I highly recommend this team.

The guys at Real Estate in DC are top notch. Justin and Tim were great in working with us from day one of our 18 month search for a house in DC. There were several challenging situations with sellers and offers, but Justin and Tim were there to walk us through the decision. They understood our priorities, worked with us to find the right fit for our family. In particular the house we ended up buying was a short sale, which is fraught with uncertainty. But through the 6 month contract period the guys were incredibly responsive and helpful with every decision. If you are buying or selling, work with the Tom Faison group. They will not disappoint.

We feel so fortunate to have had Justin Tanner as our realtor for our first home purchase and cannot more highly recommend him and the Tom Faison Group. Justin went above and beyond his duties as a realtor and was always anticipating homes and neighborhoods that might be a good fit for us. His insight into the DC housing market was invaluable. It was so helpful for him to walk through a home with us and point out numerous potential renovation projects or problems which we would not have previously considered. Justin is a tireless negotiator and he put our needs first even after the seller accepted our offer. And no matter what time of the day or late night, he never rushed our conversations and answered all our questions. We appreciated that he showed us so many different homes in various conditions and price points so we could see the full potential of each home. What stands out is Justin’s commitment to the entire home buying and home ownership process. After having moved in, he is so willing to help out with questions or small fixes. We are thrilled to have had such a smooth process and are recommending Justin to every potential buyer/seller we know.

Capitol Hill, Washington DC 

We interviewed several agents to list our home of 16 years on Capitol Hill, and we knew right away that Tom was different.  Rather than dropping a couple of de-clutter suggestions, a rough idea of value, and a “call me when you’re ready”, Tom sat and talked about our needs, our wants, and our willingness to let him make those a reality in an inclusive and positive way.  He talked strategy, but also impressed us as an operations guy.  

Within hours of our agreement to work with his team, a load of boxes showed up at our door (just the motivation we needed!) and we were off to the races. Soon after, we had use of his truck, his capable team, his painter, and his window washer. Regular visits with Tom all along the way provided much needed support and suggestions.

Throughout the process, Tom was very open, professional but casual, and very responsive to our questions and needs.  His prep-work and marketing drove an incredible amount of traffic to our home.  In dealing with prospective buyers, Tom served as a steady counselor, striking a balance between sounding board and negotiations coach.

After receiving a house contract in record time, Tom continued to give us carte blanche access to his trove of boxes.  We can't overstate how valuable and convenient that was in prepping for our move.  In the end, we were super pleased with the process, and the services provided by Tom and his team.  Would we use him again?  ABSOLUTELY!!!

We absolutely LOVED working with Tim and his team on our house purchase. He was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and super responsive to all of our questions and concerns. We loved how he challenged us to think about our priorities to find a home that truly was the best fit for us, and gently guided us to evaluate our expectations, preferred house styles, renovation possibilities, and what would serve our family well TODAY as well as 5 years from now.

We put offers on two houses before we bought our home, and Tim was SO helpful to us as we navigated the emotional rollercoaster of writing offers and "losing out" on houses we loved. We really can't say enough good about him, and recommend him to all of our friends!

142 Kentucky Ave., SE

Our experience was really exceptional working with Tom and the entire team. Coming from California, we really relied on Tom to help beyond just finding a home. He helped us narrow our neighborhood search, as well as our search criteria. Most of our search took place from California, which required even more of Tom's time and effort, both of which he was happy to give. He was always responsive to our changes in criteria, and was incredibly proactive in sharing properties that met our needs.

The most impressive part of working with Tom came after we found the home we wanted. He helped us position our offer in the most competitive way possible, while still ensuring we got a good deal. Thanks to Tom, we got the house we wanted at a price we were happy with. Further, we knew we wanted to do some work to the house immediately.

He helped us find an architect and contractor, both of whom are familiar with our neighborhood and the historic restrictions, and both of whom have been reliable, skilled, and reasonably priced. Tom continues to be a resource for us, and we have happily referred friends to him already.
