I can say with certainty that Rob is the best real estate agent you will find in DC. I called around ten agents before selecting Rob to represent me and interviewed about half of them. Rob immediately stood out because of his 1) responsiveness, 2) track record of representing either the buyer or the seller, and not both, 3) vast knowledge of the DC housing market and DC-specific laws, 4) commitment to working with you directly as opposed to handing you off to an associate as your primary contact, and 5) patience and general attitude towards your buying process - he does not encourage or pressure his clients to buy anything, he acts as a real estate consultant to help you make an informed and smart decision, and will not hesitate to point out the many negatives of various properties. When we finally found the right property, Rob crafted a competitive offer that kept within the property value that still beat out two others. Even with the two other offers on the table, we closed under the asking price on this one-bedroom in a great neighborhood. I cannot recommend Rob enough, and I will be referring all my friends to him for as long as I live in DC. His diligence, expertise, attention to detail, moral compass, and a caring approach in his own life and towards his clients are unmatched. You can't go wrong with Rob on your side!
