"Arte did an excellent job. Using the Concierge Service from Compass we were able to finance the improvements we need to bring our house to market. Arte, helped us find excellent contractors and he helped us deal with them to make sure they did the work properly and on budget. He provided useful suggestions as to what work should be done to get the best return on the sale of our property. Arte has great attention to detail which helped to insure that our house looked stunning when our house went on the market. We always could trust Arte because he always approached each situation with the highest of integrity. Because of the great job Arte did, we received multiple offers within days of us putting the house on the market and we sold our house for way above the asking price.

"Arte Dunning’s expertise and guidance through our home search and purchase was much appreciated by my husband and me. He worked diligently on our behalf and was always readily accessible throughout the entire process. Following settlement, Arte remained involved throughout our renovation and offered invaluable advice, including suggestions for various contractors. We are very grateful for Arte’s professional guidance and personal investment.

"A Trusted Professional
Arte's impressive knowledge, skill, experience, and dedication to his clients' welfare make him more than a valued realtor, but a professional to whom you can entrust your home and family's future. Bar none the best realtor we've worked with across multiple moves during the past 15 years.
Arte efficiently and patiently navigated us through the renovation and sale of our old home while helping us select and close on our new home. He worked around my and my wife and family's schedules and limited availability, ever accessible and remaining in constant communication. He tenaciously protected our interests above everyone else's including his own, minimizing our risk and providing us a better value than we expected possible.
We learned to appreciate Arte's knowledge and experience. As a native of the Washington metropolitan area and with an engineering background, he has managed large corporate and small personal building and renovation projects. For us, Arte quickly identified structural, financial, and negotiation problems and developed solutions for them before they had a chance to interfere with buying or selling our properties. We particularly appreciated and enjoyed walking through houses with him as he observed and divined the house's structural, renovation, and maintenance status, past and present, with the skill of a master sleuth.
Arte repeatedly went above and beyond the call of duty. No question regarding any aspect of the home buying or selling process no matter how simple was ever left unanswered, as he considered educating us to be part of his duty. He would patiently re-explain some concepts in detail until I understood, when a glib cursory explanation might be expected from other realtors. We were often pleased and surprised by Arte's proactive interventions on our behalf, including hiring an interior decorator and identifying contractors to upgrade our house before sale. Even after all sales and purchase transactions were completed, Arte checked in with us to ensure our transition was successful.
We whole-heartedly, enthusiastically recommend Arte to all freinds and family as the best realtor in the DC Metropolitan area!

Arte is a rare find in the real estate community in that he thinks of his clients' needs before his own commission. My wife and I were looking for a new home and Arte showed us several but none of them fit the criteria we were looking for. However, based on his builder background, Arte recommended we build our own house. Although Arte knew building our own home was the best option for us, he also knew that his commission would be cut in half. Nonetheless, he guided us through the entire process and was there for us even during the construction phase. We've continued to recommend Arte to our friends based on his excellent service and expert knowledge of the DC Metro area.

"This was my second time working with Arte and I can't recommend him enough. He supported me to purchase my very first condo - which I was nervous about because I had just gone through a bad experience with another realtor - and Arte made me feel supported and educated and accompanied me through every step and beyond. My husband and I then hired him to help us buy our first home together and we couldn't have been more pleased with Arte's services. He goes above and beyond and is a genuine person who truly wants to support people's dreams, not just his business interests." - Carrie
"Arte is a superb real-estate agent. I would recommend him to anyone. Arte's experience as a builder gives him a unique advantage--he understands how houses are built, and the minute he walks into a home he's on the lookout for issues. He has an easy-going, friendly personality that takes a lot of the edge off the stress of home buying. Arte pays attention to details, and his knowledge of the legal aspects of real-estate contracts in the DMV is extensive. As a successful agent, he's clearly a busy man but always responded promptly and professionally to our questions. Our offer was accepted without a hitch, but had things not gone so smoothly, I'm sure Arte's deep experience in the area and knowledge of the market would have helped us develop an effective negotiating strategy." - Amayeda
"Arte was very helpful when we bought an older home because he had a network of inspectors and contractors so that we could price needed repairs into the offer and eventual purchase price. Arte also did not try to "sell" me the properties he showed us, but instead gave us the pros and cons of each listing." - Nick
"Arte made purchasing a home in the DC area as painless as possible despite the frustrations of trying to purchase in a seller's market. the beginning Arte took the time to get to know me, especially what my expectations were for the home I was looking to purchase. This allowed for us to make the most efficient use of our search for a home for me. Arte's attention to detail, and his knowledge of the DC real estate market, really set him apart the other agents in the area. n nThanks again for all your help Arte! I couldn't be happier with the home you helped me find." - Chris
"I had the immense pleasure working with Arthur Dunning in the sale of my Maryland home. Arthur has a framework and process around each step in selling a home. He had multiple recommendations for me to consider at each step that further solidified the partnership philosophy he brings to one of life's most significant transactions. One example of many was his method of presenting multiple offers for me to choose was insightful and his guidance during that discussion was unparalleled. Not only was my time with him productive but extremely enjoyable as well. He was always available quickly by phone, email, or in person. I wish he could be our realtor here in UT!" - Helga
"Arthur is the consummate professional. We could not have been in better hands for a sale that was both complicated and emotional. Arthur guided us through the process with skill, expertise and understanding. Can not recommend him highly enough." - Jonathan
