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.​

Capitol Hill, Washington DC

We used Tom Faison and his team to list and sell our home on Capitol Hill. As past clients of Redfin, we felt that we had some loyalty to them, but couldn't resist at least talking to Tom before signing a listing agreement with them. Seeing his signs all over the hill had us intrigued, and we were curious if his neighborhood knowledge would trump the discount that Redfin offers. After meeting with Tom and two of his colleagues, we were convinced that it does. They came prepared with up-to-date data on past sales and active listings, and even stopped at a few active listing on their way to our appointment so that they could accurately compare our home to it's competition. Once the listing agreement was signed, Tom and his team moved quickly to find the best date to list the home, price it competitively, and have it staged to show it's full potential. We felt comfortable having Tom and his colleagues represent the home and the neighborhood during the two open houses -- they knew more about the neighborhood than we did! Within days, we had multiple offers, which Tom helped us review and choose the one that we were all most comfortable with. 30 days later, we had a seamless closing! Tom exceeded our expectations, and we wouldn't hesitate to refer him to our friends and family.

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.
