"I'm a first-time homebuyer and going through that process with Simon was a pleasure and a breeze. He was very helpful in finding properties, had a good eye when visiting, and was very knowledge about the market. I only worked with Simon for about a month before finding and closing on my ideal apartment. His expertise and patience put me at ease when making pretty big decisions in a small amount of time. I would recommend Simon with no hesitation, he really went above and beyond to make the process as easy as possible and was readily available for appointments and phone calls. As a pretty clueless homebuyer Simon was very patient and communicative with me. No appointment felt rushed and Simon's personality made the whole experience really enjoyable, not something I imagined when beginning the home hunting process. You can't go wrong with Simon!" - Carmen
"Simon was just incredible to work with.
I was a first time home buyer, purchasing as a single, and unsure of what type of home I wanted or even the location. Simon was not only a wealth of knowledge but was beyond patient, showing me around a variety of properties in a handful of different areas. Every time we saw something that I was even remotely interested in, Simon would compile a "report" on the property with any and every detail he thought might be important to me. He made the process so smooth and seamless. Simon went above and beyond to make sure everything was constantly taken care of and that I was always protected as the buyer which was an incredible relief.
I cannot thank Simon enough and look forward to working with him again on my next home purchase. I highly recommend Simon to any home buyer!

"I would very highly recommend Simon as a realtor. We recently closed on a house and had an outstanding experience. We spent months sifting through homes in DC, and we were extremely impressed with Simon's breadth and scope of knowledge of housing styles, architecture, local attractions, vibes, and home values. He is a patient, honest, and professional agent, but even more importantly he is very personable. He took the time to learn our interests and styles, and guided us in the right direction to ultimately find precisely what we were looking for. He professionally and ably handled all transactions and made the home buying process as stress free as possible for us. He is a tremendous resource and we consider ourselves very lucky to have encountered him on a chance meeting at an open house. We're sending any friends or family members ready to buy or sell a house directly to Simon!" - George
"Simon was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable when it came to finding me a home. I didn't feel rushed or pushed around, he is curteous and realistic and had my best interest at heart when I gave him the criteria for my dream home. With his help, I found it and couldn't be happier." - Ryan
"I cannot recommend Simon enough. As a first time homebuyer, I was both excited and daunted at the prospect of purchasing a home in DC. I have several friends who had negative experiences with other Agents: they felt rushed or pressured to put in offers, their Agents didn’t take the time to thoroughly explain the home buying process, or their Agents were nowhere to be found when they needed them the most. You will have absolutely none of these issues with Simon. Our very first meeting was over three hours long, and he took his time getting to know my fiancé and I, learned what we were looking for, and educated us on the super competitive DC market. There are no stupid questions with Simon; he answers each and every one, and if he doesn’t know the answer, he finds it out for you.
Simon took us to several (very different!) properties, and was quick to call out the pros and cons of each based on our needs and the conditions of the homes. He inspects every corner of a home during a showing, explaining different construction materials and looking for potential issues along the way. His expertise was very reassuring, and helped give us a realistic idea of what we would be up against on several fixer-upper properties.
In the end, I put an offer in on a house that was priced very low, and we knew it would trigger escalation clauses. Even though I didn’t have the largest down payment, because of Simon, we were able to position ourselves competitively and the seller accepted our offer.
While we were under contract, Simon was just as attentive as he was during our search. He took his time explaining everything, and was our advocate between the title company and our lender. He checked in with all parties at every step of the process to makes sure we were all on the same page. When it came time for closing, there wasn’t a single hiccup because of his groundwork.
Because of Simon, I felt confident and informed in my purchase, and cannot recommend him enough to buyers in DC.
