”Dare represented me and my partner as the Seller. We were impressed by how quickly she set everything in motion once we decided to list the property for sale, and she and her team made smooth sailing of the journey to closing. We were uncertain about the impact of the pandemic on the market value of our downtown condo, but Dare was spot on regarding the days on the market and the top sales price we could expect. She not only had excellent instincts, but she also backed up her recommendations with research. Our well-placed confidence in Dare was the key in overcoming our doubts about certain aspects of the Buyer’s offer. She anticipated our questions and gave us frank advice. We never doubted she was a true professional—she helped us assess the market value of our home almost 2 years ago when we first contemplated selling our property, even though we weren’t ready to list at that time, and when we more recently became ready to list the property, she suggested we delay by a few months until market conditions improved. This demonstrated to us that Dare had our best interests at heart and wasn’t simply out to make a quick commission. Dare’s team echoed her top-notch service—they were thorough, professional, responsive, and communicative. We highly recommend Dare without any reservations!”- Robert & Ryan

”We’ve worked with Dare to buy and sell our houses in Capitol Hill. She is wonderful to work with. Super responsive. She’s got great advice but also lets you make the final decisions. We’ve sold two houses with her. Dare knows everyone and really went the extra mile doing whatever we needed to sell our house.”- TJ

”If you want an expert with wonderful relationships throughout the real estate network, Dare is your gal! Especially in this unprecedentedly competitive real estate market, Dare patiently and steadfastly worked with us to find our home and her stellar reputation and relationships in the DC real estate community no doubt gave us a leg up in the offer process. She's very responsive to messages, quick to not only get access to the houses, but by the time you show up to look around she's already gotten the scoop on the house and the buying/selling circumstances which allowed us to have a complete picture as we were contemplating if it was the right spot for us. However, her greatest asset is her reputation throughout the real estate community. Realtors love working with Dare, which gives her buyers a leg-up when entering an offer process. We have heard horror stories about others' home buying experiences, but thanks to Dare and her wonderful experience and relationships, we had a dream home buying experience that allowed us to stay in our desired location AND our desired budget. Thank you Dare and the entire Compass team!!”-
