Des McKenna of DC Home Buzz was amazing. He listened to what I was looking for and found me the perfect place despite all my demands. He was there with me every step of the way and made sure that everything was taken care of and went smoothly. He was a pleasure to work with and I can’t recommend him and DC Home Buzz enough.
Connie McCollister and the DC Home Buzz team helped us find our dream home. Connie listened to our wants and needs, drove us around all over town, and was so patient as we searched, and searched, and searched for the perfect home. Beyond the endless scouting for great finds, Connie and Ati were also tough negotiators and were real life-savers when it came to overcoming the inevitable hiccups that come with closing. I don’t know where we would be without the help of the DC Home Buzz. Thanks DC Home Buzz for everything!
Krisy and Meche at DC Home Buzz helped me purchase a home in southeast DC. They heard what we were looking for and were very responsive. They advocated for us with the seller’s agent and even with our current landlords. They made the home buying process super easy and stress free. I would recommend them a thousand percent!
We went to DC Home Buzz on a recommendation from a friend, and it was likely one of the best decisions we ever made. We started off by going to their first-time homebuyers workshop. It was free, incredibly informative, and actually gave us the bravery to go ahead and see if we could dip our toe into the DC real estate market. Plus, they gave us free donuts. With bacon. Donuts with bacon. That should tell you already how awesome they are.
We decided to work with Des and Meche. Both live in DC, and both know DC, and those were two very important factors for us when choosing a realtor. They gave us time and space to talk through what we wanted and not once did we feel judged. They offered solid, thorough advice, and we trusted them completely.
Let’s talk about that trust and why we’d recommend these guys to anyone. After going out to look at homes for just ONE WEEKEND, we decided to put an offer on a house. Saw it on a Saturday, offer was due on Monday. I was leaving town for business, and my wife was slammed at work. We had so little time to think about the decision, we were a nervous wreck. But we wanted the house. Des and Meche worked with us to figure out the right offer, and then we let them take over. Literally. They drafted up an offer that we hardly even reviewed and then signed our names to. Des and Meche asked us to trust them, and we did. We got the house. No counter-offer. No negotiations. When it came to the inspection, they helped us decide what we should address and what we needed to do ourselves (they also recommended a phenomenal home inspector). Again, the seller didn’t come back to us with any changes. Des and Meche win again. We ended up buying a house that we never in a million years thought we could afford, in a great transitional neighborhood, and a mortgage (through a lender they also recommended) that cost only $200 more than our one-bedroom apartment rent.
We are incredibly happy with our DC Home Buzz experience, and we will recommend them to ANYONE that is looking for a home. They’re a great group of folks, and they even gave us a baller closing gift. Work with them; you won’t be sorry.
100 percent likely to strongly recommend! We had a fantastic experience with DC Home Buzz to sell our NW DC house–under contract in a week, well over list price. Everythign was professional and smooth from start to finish, Ati negotiated a great deal, took care of some last minute things when we were out of town and generally made selling a home far easier and less stressful than we had imagined. Bonus points for the good photography, staging, and marketing. Highly recommend.
I first read about DC Home Buzz in the Washington Post. From the first interview with who became my broker, Ati Williams, I felt confident I was in good hands. They handled everything from staging the home to holding my hand through settlement with just the right mix of professionalism and understanding of my emotions. They sold my home in 5 days so need I say more? I can recommend them without reservation.
Desmond and the entire DC Home Buzz team were truly wonderful to work with, and I can’t recommend them enough. As a first-time homebuyer, Des put me at ease through every step of the process, answering my (many!) questions and explaining each step along the way. I could tell that really listened to what I was looking for in my search, and he didn’t waste time showing me places that we knew wouldn’t work. When I found a place that I loved, he did an amazing job helping me put together a competitive offer — not an easy task in such a competitive market! — and made it work so that the time from offer to closing was just three weeks. The entire team worked hard on my behalf to uncover every possible cost saving/tax abatement, and everyone they put me in touch with (lender, home inspector, etc.) was extremely professional and helped make the process go smoothly. I’m not looking to move anytime soon, but when I do, I’ll definitely go back to DC Home Buzz!
Connie went above and beyond to show me places that were soon to be on the market and on the market. She was super accommodating to my schedule and I always felt like a priority. I interacted with a few of the other DC Home Buzz team members and everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful.
I had a great experience working with DC HomeBuzz. Connie was helpful, always available, and really worked with us on getting the right place. I would definitely recommend them!
I had an amazing first-time homebuying experience with DC Home Buzz. My agent was always available when I had a question or needed more information about anything. She went above and beyond the call of duty many times throughout the entire process and was a great advocate for me in negotiations with the seller. I would wholeheartedly recommend the DC Home Buzz team!
