 DC Home Buzz Real Estate Agent


 Hey DC! I come from a hospitality background, so I am an expert at providing exceptional customer service. Combining my love of  people and my love for Washington, DC, I can inspire anyone this is the BEST place to live.  When I am not bragging about all of  the amazing new changes in DC, you can find me in the kitchen cooking (while listening to Beyonce, of course) and entertaining  friends. Riding my bicycle through the city makes it easy for me to explore every aspect it has to offer. I am grateful and excited  to  be an agent for DC Home Buzz and I want for you to feel the same way about your new home!


Favorite DC Restaurant: Black Salt Fish Market and Restaurant

Favorite thing about DC: Diversity and the feel of a small town in a big city

Rayner Sullivan

Hello, I am Rayner Sullivan, DC Home Buzz’s new transaction coordinator. I recently relocated to DC from Mississippi and have fallen in love with DC’s vibrant culture. From the restaurants to the concerts and baseball games, there are so many things to do! I’m looking forward to growing with DC Home Buzz and providing all of our clients with the peace of mind and support throughout their transactions.

Favorite DC neighborhood: I live on Capitol Hill and I love it. It’s a very pretty area and close to everything. The  neighborhood has so many restaurants and close to many other areas such as Eastern Market.



Confessions of First Time homebuyers: Megan and Dom


(Note: The Confession of First Time Homebuyers series aims to educate future homebuyers about the homebuying process using stories and experiences from past DC Home Buzz first time homebuyer clients)


We asked Megan and Dominique, first time home buyers and clients at DC Home Buzz, a few questions about her experience as a first time home buyer and the challenges she may have faced. The pair will be sharing their experiences in person during the upcoming first time homebuyers brunch on March 8th, 2014 @ 10:00 am. Megan and Dominique, thanks for your contributions and congratulations on your home!


What was the moment you decided it to find a new place?
We’d been casually talking about looking into buying for a few months towards the end of 2012 and into the new year. We got a notice in late Spring that our rent was going to be raised for our one bedroom apartment in Cleveland Park. We just felt we were paying too much money with no return and no investment. The day we got the notice was the day we emailed DC Home Buzz about First Time Home Buyers classes.
Why did you choose to live in Michigan Park?
We chose Michigan Park for a number of reasons- the quality of house we could get for our budget, the connectivity to the Fort Totten Metro and the vibe we got when we went to the open house. We love [everything about] urban living, from walking to run errands to utilizing public transportation for our commute and the great mix of people and cultures. Although Michigan Park is substantially more residential than Cleveland Park, there are some great signs of growth and development. The people here value their homes and take care of their neighbors.
What were some of the complications you encountered during your home search?
It took us a while to come to terms with what was possible with the budget we had. Once we finally knew what we were looking for, it was a little bit of a waiting game. Waiting for what seemed like a good fit to come on the market and then acting on it. We investigated construction loans for a bit and thought the idea of renovation was really something we could do. In the end it it didn’t work out but it was always an option. The balance of seeing a house, seeing a price and punching the numbers to see what our down payment and monthly payments could be was always a concern. Getting to know new neighborhoods and understanding the lifestyle change was another challenge. DC has so much to offer and explore, it’s hard to develop sound opinions on neighborhoods just from driving through them on a Sunday morning.
How did the DC Home Buzz team help you to overcome those complications?
The guidance was always there and there was no question too little or trivial. Des had a great sense of when we were comfortable or confused, dissatisfied or really excited. The first weekend we went out we looked at tons of neighborhoods and a variety of housing options. It gave us a fresh perspective on what was possible and what we were actually looking for. (It turned out we had no idea what we were actually looking for!) But with patience and a lot of perseverance from Des we figured it out. We always felt like if Des thought a friend or colleague could give us more info or a second opinion he was more than willing to hook us up with them. We valued his opinion on this huge decision. We felt he too had a lot invested in our search.
Did you purchase a fixer upper? Do you plan to do any renovations?
  The house we bought was move in ready. We will do renovations, hopefully within the year. The kitchen is dated and the bathroom could use some love. But in general, the house is in fantastic condition. The same woman had lived here since it was built in 1956. She took great care of the place. Even though it does need updating, we consider ourselves incredibly lucky for finding this house. We’re here, making the house a home, saving for the work we’ll do down the line.
Did you find our first time homebuyers workshop helpful? (if applicable)
When we contacted DC Home Buzz, they said there wouldn’t be a class for several weeks and asked if we would like to meet one-on-one with someone to get the ball rolling. The first meeting was fantastic and eased our minds a lot. I felt like all we did for about 1.5 hours was fire questions at Des, all of which he answered honestly and patiently. It was great.
Anything you wish you knew before you started the process?
There are certain things you can’t prepare for because it’s all so new, but that’s more the emotional side. It’s a huge purchase. As far as getting finances in order, doing your homework on various neighborhoods, and being ready to act when the right house came along- we were prepared. It was exciting and scary, but we never felt lost or unprepared.
Anything else you’d like to add?
On the day of our final walk-through, we walked into our new house and Des had gotten us donuts and lemonade. (Apparently we talked more about new donut shops during our house hunting sessions than we realized this summer- haha.) But I just think it was the perfect example of a Realtor who was genuinely interested in getting to know you, your needs and seeing you through an incredibly important decision. We waited 12 days after we put an offer on our house, to find out if it was accepted. During this time we escalated and gave a final and best offer. Through every single step Des was diligent, informative and honest. At times we were beyond anxious. He did not pressure us to do things were weren’t comfortable with. We always felt the DC Home Buzz team had our best interest in mind.
