Buying or selling a house can be one of the most stressful experiences, however working with Shannon made it such a seemless process when it came to selling our condo. She is extremely responsive, very knowledgeable in all aspects of selling or buying and most importantly, someone you can trust. From start to finish, Shannon was there every step of the way in helping us make the best decisions for our family. We are so grateful for all the hard work Shannon put in for us and would recommend her to anyone who's looking to buy or sell a home. She was a true pleasure to work with and hope to work with her again in the future.
First impressions go a long way. We met Shannon while checking out an open house. She was easy to talk to and gave us great confidence in her ability to sell. We knew she would be the right agent to list our condo. Shannon was easily accessible by email and text. She made sure we knew every option on the table. She believed in the quality of our home the same way we did. That was important in her advocating for our firm sale price and finding the right comparables. In the end, we got "our number" and owe so much of it to Shannon. We look forward to the day we can purchase our next home with her!
We hired Shannon to represent us in selling our home in Logan Circle after conducting several interviews with other top firms. She was able to bring us a buyer within 3 weeks of being on the market, and sold our home in a month! Shannon's performance exceeded expectations and she was able to negotiate and get us a price that worked for us, and in the process set a record in our building for the highest price per square foot sold. Shannon’s professionalism, attention to detail at every step, and ability to meet our needs carried us through this process with little stress. From beginning to end, she proved to be the right choice for us! We highly recommend Shannon! She’s is a total professional and class act!!
Having worked with Shannon in both buying and selling homes, we can confidently say she is one of the best realtors with whom we have had the pleasure of working. Shannon's authenticity and determination along with her professional savvy, collaborative mentality and good instincts are a great recipe for success. In buying or selling a home in DC, we feel fortunate to have Shannon on our side!
Shannon is an outstanding realtor. During my buying process I felt like I was Shannon's priority. She was always responsive and kept me updated constantly on the status of our offer. Shannon was also a great negotiator for me during the offer/settlement. She got me an amazing deal on our condo. Shannon definitely made the home-buying experience fun, low stress, and easy.
Shannon is a top quality realtor. I'm grateful that I found her to help guide me through the process of buying my new home. After helping me find the perfect condo, she negotiated a better price than I imagined possible. THEN she helped get multiple concessions and throw-ins post inspection. I really felt like I was the "winner" on this deal. Shannon has continued to be an amazing resource post move in. I'm quick to recommend her as soon as I hear someone is looking to buy or sell in the DMV.
Buying or selling a home can be extremely stressful. Shannon made our whole experience (both buying and selling) enjoyable. That is saying a lot because neither our purchase nor our sale were traditional and working them simultaneously was nerve wrecking. Shannon smoothly navigated the process and provided us with the right support along the way to ensure we got the best deal. DC is a competitive market and Shannon found us the perfect place pre-market. She was instrumental in helping us craft a competitive offer and navigating the tight turnaround to get our offer accepted before the property was listed. I am still pinching myself! Shannon was also masterful in selling our adorable (read tiny) walk-up cooperative. Cooperatives can take a bit longer to sell, and selling a walk-up only added complexity (and an extra work out). Shannon's persistence and commitment to open houses paid off. She consistently kept us informed through the process and when it came to cinching the deal, she was a dynamo. Would never consider using another realtor. Shannon is the best.
I was moving to DC from Chicago and had less than 90 days to find a home! Needless to say, I was nervous/stressed, but Shannon made the condo search process a breeze - and dare I say, enjoyable. Shannon took the time to understand my must-haves. She immediately started sending me properties within my perimeters. Living halfway across the country, Shannon would personally go tour condos that I liked and would take videos of the properties for me; I doubt many realtors would take the time to do what Shannon did for me. When I finally made a house hunting trip to DC, Shannon spent four days at my beckoning call; we drove all over the city and probably viewed 20+ properties. I was very impressed with Shannon's perspective on DC neighborhoods, her ability to connect with other realtors, and her ability to negotiate on my behalf - I was very confident in her as a realtor. Ultimately, Shannon found me my dream home in DC. While it was over my price range, I kept telling Shannon that I wanted an "investment" - and that's 100% what I got. Shannon also provided recommendations for contractors to do work on the unit. The condo even got the seal of approval from my mother - which is the equivalent of 5+ stars on Zillow.
It was a pleasure working with Shannon for our first home purchase. She was patient with our many questions and very knowledgeable about navigating the complexities and competitiveness of the DC real estate market. She really took the time to hear what we were looking for and then sent us tailored listings that were in the neighborhoods and price range we were looking for. We especially appreciated her willingness to do video walkthroughs of properties we were interested in before we actually toured them, as well as find properties that weren't on the market yet. A lot of realtors wouldn't take the time to do that, and we really appreciated it. When it came to making our offer, Shannon worked very quickly (and at all hours!) to make sure we submitted a competitive offer in a multiple bid situation (the first and only offer we ever put on a property, and it was accepted). Leading up to closing, she was able to help us navigate all the logistics and deadlines to get to a successful settlement. We would highly recommend Shannon to all our friends looking to buy property in the DC area.
We were beyond pleased with Shannon, and would definitely work with her again and recommend her to others. We had previously listed our condo with another realtor, and it sat on the market for five months. When we switched to Shannon, she immediately offered us valuable ideas of quick and inexpensive ways to freshen up our home and to market it more effectively. We received two offers - at asking price - the first day on the market. Not only is Shannon knowledgeable, hardworking, and kind, she is also part of a great team, which is really valuable. Thank you, Shannon!
Shannon was great throughout the entire process. I really enjoyed working with her and Rob on closing my first place! We saw over 30 properties and made a couple offer prior to closing on one.
“(Shannon) did great work—giving good advice, understanding what kind of place I was interested in, honing in on good properties, showing my mom and me around to a lot of places, steering me through the many steps in the process, and answering a million questions of mine throughout. I may have been higher-maintenance than your typical client with all my lawyerly questions, but it worked out well with an excellent home to live in! I knew I picked well when I asked her to work with me after we met at an open house. She went above and beyond what I could have expected. Super-responsive through the whole process, very upbeat and gracious, nice, thoughtful, attentive to what worked for me. Her friendly personality let to a good working relationship with the seller’s agent and led to us getting price breaks and other perks. And she fielded hundreds of emails and texts from me, from start to finish, addressing a bunch of little things that came up. She managed to get the developer to reduce the price another 1.5%, after a first 1.5% drop, even after I thought the negotiations were done. She got multiple addendums added with punch list items, and was endlessly patient and accommodating on that. She was patient in dealing with delays on my end from Wells Fargo, and made sure the process went smoothly. And in the end, we got another $5k closing credit. On top of that, she and the co-broker Brent gave me a super-generous gift certificate, which was above and beyond and unexpected. I will use it on window blinds, probably. She also paid for a cleaning! I owe her a dinner and an extra thank-you for that.”
