★★★★★"Louisa is incredibly competent at her role — I could not have selected a better realtor for the purchase of my first home. She was patient, knowledgeable, and professional throughout the entire process. Highly recommended, and I will be recommending her to all my connections who are looking to purchase their own homes. Thanks again Louisa." - John, Virgina
★★★★★"Louisa Gilson Davis was a great resource for us in both selling our existing home and purchasing a new home. She anticipated all of our needs and understood what our priorities were when looking for a new home. Louisa was quick to respond to our phone calls and emails, at all hours of the day. She was upfront, honest, and with her responses to our questions. We enjoyed working with her and would recommend working with her." - Amy & Jamie, Virginia
★★★★★"As first time homebuyers, we could not have asked for a more dedicated agent to teach us, support us, and lead us through the home buying process. We met Louisa over a year ago at an . She understood that we were just browsing at the time and respected our decision to rent again this past August. Once we decided we were ready to take the plunge this past winter, Louisa was right there and ready to help us start looking. Louisa was incredibly flexible in showing us over a dozen units when it was convenient for us and assisting us with submitting two offers (one we were overbid and the other we finally bought). Louisa respectful of changing preferences, knowledgeable about the current market and area, and full of energy. Thank you, Louisa, for all your help and getting us into the perfect first home!" - Caroline & Milton, Washington DC
★★★★★"My partner & I can't speak highly enough of our experience with Louisa Gilson Davis! We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We met with a realtor before Louisa, but we knew instantly that she was the one for us. She is honest and hands-on, and she really helped to take the pressure off of us.
We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the "one", Louisa walked us through every step of the negotiations down to the final closing day. Louisa was there for US! We would, and will, recommend Louisa to anyone in the market to purchase a home. We will also look to Louisa when we have any future real estate needs. We were impressed with Louisa’s professionalism and her genuine interest in assuring we were satisfied with our final decision on our new place. The best part is that we now have a new friend - a friendship that will continue to grow." - Holland & Kimley, Washington, DC
★★★★★"Louisa was gracious enough to help me navigate the waters of my first home purchase. Her professionalism is impressive and at the speed she worked was notably incredible. The resources and knowledge she provided to helped to make my purchase a success. I highly recommend Louisa for any purchase or sell. She is a true professional and holds deep knowledge about the area and the process. I am very happy with my purchase and it was a smooth transaction." - E'Shara, Virginia
★★★★★"I don't know how we would have bought (and enjoyed buying!) our first home without Louisa's calm, cool and confident guidance. Our landlord at the time decided he wanted to move back into his apartment earlier than we were planning, meaning our home-buying timeline got shifted up about 8 months - Louisa walked us through everything we would need to consider before we started looking, gave us plenty of insight and helped us think through options on financing and was always available via text or panicked (on our part, never hers) phone call day or night. The rest of her team was a dream to work with as well. What I appreciate most about Louisa's approach is she is very direct with you, so you feel like you're getting the whole story about the process - which is important, particularly for a fierce market like DC! That candor translates to a sincere but firm negotiator who I always felt had our back as we closed in on our dream home. We won't ever go with anyone else when it's time to find another property!" - Mattie & Drake, Washington, DC
