3/17/2019 - Tom G.

Tom was our real estate agent for the sale of our home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC. It was a difficult time for us. My wife was very ill, and we were reluctantly selling the house so that we could move closer to family. As you might expect, this was a extremely emotional and stressful time for us, even without the challenges of selling our home. Tom could not have been a better agent, under these unusually challenging circumstances. He did a great job of presenting us with options at each step in the process, keeping us apprised of the state of the market, setting a realistic timeline for selling it, and ensuring a successful conclusion. That would be the sort of things you might expect from any good agent. However, he handled these tasks with enormous sensitivity to our situation, often anticipating the sorts of questions we would ask, or alternatives we would need to explore. It was hard saying good-bye to Washington. It could have been a lot harder. Selling our home was a lot less stressful, and a lot more successful, than I had imagined. I'm extremely grateful to Tom and Kendall for that.

Simply put - Tom and his team are amazing! Tom was our agent nearly a decade ago when we bought our home on Capitol Hill, and when it came time to sell, there was no doubt that Tom was going to be our first and only call! We had to sell quickly to meet a contingency on our offer for a new home and Tom met us the day we called to get the ball rolling. He gave us great advice, set realistic expectations and, most importantly he delivered on them. He made the process as seamless as possible and the house sold in a week for full asking, (not to mention he set a record for highest sale price for a house with 1.5 baths on our street)! Tom's has unprecedented knowledge of the market and a keen sense of how to manage the process to ensure a smooth and successful outcome for his clients. Selling and moving can be quite stressful, but he and his team helped us every step along the way and brought a sense of confidence and humor that was much appreciated. If you are looking to buy or sell - there is no debate that Tom and his team will deliver. Tom has a reputation as the go to guy when it comes to "RealEstateinDC" and it's a reputation that is well deserved and hard earned.

Without knowing much about DC real estate, I dreaded selling my sister's Capitol Hill home from another state. But Tom and his team made this process easier than I could have ever imagined. When Tom said "throw us the keys and we'll help you take care of it," I was skeptical -- "full service" brokers are a rare breed. However, as soon as I signed the contract (or 8, as he jokes), it was clear the team would care for the place as if it were their own. Throughout the entire process, Tom gave me the right mix of space, support and expert advice to ensure the process was flawless. Kendall, the listing prep manager, was amazing. Everything down to their quirky, targeted marketing was effective in making the sales process quick and successful. It's clear this team truly knows the market; and the team felt like they were partners with me from start to finish. I genuinely cannot recommend this team enough.

My husband and I have been fortunate to have worked with Tim Barley through the Real Estate in DC team twice now --- first when we bought our row home in Capitol Hill five years ago and again this past year when we made the move out of DC. When we were initially buying in DC, we were not planning on having a realtor and met Tim through an open house. He proved invaluable in helping us find the perfect home for us at the time and setting us up to successfully make a competitive offer on a home that was very hot on the market. I'm confident we would not have been so pleased with the outcome without his help. This time around, as sellers, we were really impressed with the expertise of Tim and the team in their ability to tactfully stage our home, help get everything in place, choose the best time to sell, and utilize marketing and open houses in a way that garnered us several offers - all above listing! Our house sold for an impressive amount above asking, with a free rent back, and within a week's time... I don't think you could possibly ask for anything more!

Tim Barley and his colleagues are the realtors you're looking for if you want to buy a place in Cheverly. My fiancée and I researched a number of buyers agents who specialized in Cheverly -- we ultimately chose Tim and could not have been happier. As first-time homebuyers, Tim explained many of the potentially confusing terms or situations we would run across and provided other helpful advice along the way. His deep relationships with many of the other players involved in buying a house in Cheverly (e.g., agents at other firms, lenders, title companies, home inspectors) and intimate knowledge of the how the real estate market works (e.g., escalation clauses, waiving appraisals) were ultimately what allowed us to submit a winning offer. Tim is one of the best and, as such, he works with other "best" people. This is the team you want if you're serious about buying a house.

Tim Barley and Jon Hunt listen...and that's what sets them apart from many others. They took the time to listen to what I had to say, presented options based on my preferences and then, when I found 'the place' were thoroughly prepared to walk me through every step of the process. I never had to wonder what was coming next and they were really responsive to emails, calls and figuring out what was best for me. A very happy client here!
