"Eddie was a Godsend. I was living abroad when I chose to sell, and Eddie made it his mission to make my condo beautiful, blast the listing far and wide, and talk me through his plans. I was able to sell for a great price without having to stress about the process.
I recommend Eddie for anyone looking to buy or sell in DC."

"I would leave 10 stars if I could. Eddie knows real estate, he knows the DMV market, and he’s the person that you need that will get things done. I found Eddie through a recommendation on a Facebook parent group. Jan 15 I sent a message to introduce myself. He called me later that day. I said I have a condo and kids. I need more space. I want a single family house. He said ok no problem. Got under contract On a house by Jan 29.
Sold my condo in less than 4 days on the market. I didn’t have a cash offer - I used a VA loan (which means my offer is not “competitive” in this area). But he still got it done!!!
Trust me, he is the best and he has a great team and excellent partners he collaborates with (staged the house, amazing photos).
THIS IS THE MAN TO CALL! Y habla español!"

“We worked with Eddie to purchase our first home amid the COVID 19 crisis. He was able to communicate with us remotely and worked with us to take the necessary precautions when visiting homes. He was very responsive and kept the process on track. Thanks to Eddie and his relationship with our lender and settlement company, we were able to have a quick closing. Thanks again, Eddie!”

"Our realtor Eddie was a joy to work with. He was patient with our process of choosing a home, and always flexible in finding options for us to look at.

Can't recommend enough!"

"Thanks to Eddie, my family and I purchased our dream home this past year! The entire process was positive thanks to Eddie's advice and focus on getting us exactly what we were looking for. What I loved most is that he would always tell us the truth and not just give us what we wanted to hear! If you are in the market for purchasing or selling I can't recommend Eddie enough! He is the absolute BEST!"
Tara Rooney, Managing Director
"We sold our house this past summer in only 72 hours for well over our asking price, thanks to Eddie Suarez’s good help. He gave us sound advice that helped us get the house ready for sale. It was abundantly clear that Eddie knew what was needed for us to get the absolute best price for our home. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Eddie as a good friend, and now as well in a professional capacity. He always stays in touch with you and is ready to answer any questions you may have. Selling our house would have been a much more cumbersome process were it not for Eddie’s good advice and help. If you are looking to sell or buy a new home, definitely give Eddie a call—you certainly won’t regret it! Thanks, Eddie!"
