I'm a first-time home buyer, and Tim helped me understand the market in DC and the value of the houses I was looking at, was key in the negotiation process, and walked me through every step. He's very well-connected in local DC real estate, which was immensely valuable in this hot market--my house went on and off the market within a week.  What I most appreciate about Tim was his help post-transaction--he gave me recommendations for contractors and was very hands-on in helping me think through improvements I wanted to make to the house.  I closed in April 2018, and we've chatted many times since then.

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!

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.

We highly recommend Tom and his team if you are trying to sell your property. Tom thrives at what he does because he seems to have a unique gift of connecting with others and seeing where they are coming from. He is insightful about people and the different personalities out there, and this is essential when you are working with buyers and their agents. We appreciated the expertise, experience and dedication Tom and his team brought in preparing our condo to go to market and then getting it sold after just one weekend of open houses. As my husband says, when you recognize competence, go with it! This applies to Tom.

I used The Real Estate in DC Team; specifically I worked with Justin Tanner to buy my first home. As a first time homebuyer, I took some classes on the basics but I was still green on a lot of things. I had a million questions and Justin is incredibly patient he took time to answer each one of them providing me the confidence I needed. Buying a home is very stressful but Justin's resourcefulness and expertise made the process painless and easy even for me!! He's a true professional, generous with his time and cares about the client's needs not just the bottom line. He even recommended a lending agent in the area, who I ended up using and greatly appreciated. I've recommended The Real Estate in DC Team to everyone I know. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Justin again or give him anything but the highest recommendation. It would be difficult to find a better Realtor!

Tim Barley helped my wife and I navigate the home buying process to purchase our first home together. He is an incredible advisor and advocate. I was really impressed with his knowledge of DC homes and he really helped us learn what to look for as home buyers. He was always patient and responsive with us and when we were finally ready to make an offer he helped us submit everything quickly. He is a skilled negotiator and helped put us in a strong position to have the winning offer. It's obvious that Tim loves his job and really values helping his clients find the right home. My wife and I are first-time home buyers and couldn't be happier with our new house and with the care and attention we received from Tim throughout the process. We highly recommend Tim to anyone looking for real estate in the DC area.
