Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who the best choice would be based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort, not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. Andrew Turczyn from Compass stood out as one of the best in the Washington DC market. Andrew’s rankings are excellent, his social media presence was strong, and I could tell he put a lot of work into the listings.
My husband, I met with Andrew at our home. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market and providing tons of info on comps in the area. We now live outside of Washington DC, we needed someone that would be able to handle all the logistics involved with selling our home. This included identifying repairs, bringing a professional give us staging tips, assisting with staging, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. Andrew made the entire process incredibly easy and efficient.
"Andrew is the best realtor with whom we've ever worked. Not only is he personable, kind, and fun to work with, but he just plain knows what he is doing. We've worked with him for over 10 years; he is a trusted advisor. We recently sold the home we bought over 10 years ago, and he could not have made it easier. He knew what price to list it at that would bring multiple (well over listing) offers and helped us navigate those offers. Furthermore, he knows how complex it is to list a condo (even in a two-unit townhouse) and was able to provide us with clear and helpful guidance on what to have ready for the sale. We couldn't recommend Andrew more highly and only wish he could be our realtor in the many locations we've lived (military life!)."
Andrew was a true professional throughout: very responsive to questions and proactively providing information at every point in the process. He helped arrange, or provided contacts, for staging, cleaning, hauling, and other services needed to make sure the home showed well and sold fast. It did and it did!! The home sold in less than a week for a price above asking -- thanks both to great markets and a great real estate agent.
Andrew was our first real estate agent and we're glad we found him. He handled the sale of our condo from A-Z and only involved us when it was absolutely necessary, which is what we asked for. He's a friendly, knowledgeable, and proactive professional and I would recommend him to anyone considering his services.
"Andrew was absolutely amazing, and made our home-buying process in a very competitive market much easier and smoother than we ever anticipated. Due to the pandemic, our move was incredibly delayed, and we actually had initially contacted Andrew about 7 months before we ended up moving, and he checked in with us periodically and made sure we were ready to hit the ground running upon our arrival in DC. Andrew set up viewings of exactly what we wanted to see, including receiving a text from us Friday and setting up a Saturday pre-open house viewing for our dream home (that we ended up buying!). Andrew gave us great advice on how to navigate the hyper-competitive DC townhouse market. We felt very informed throughout the entire process, and felt that Andrew's advice hit the right balance between being competitive buyers and not opening ourselves up to unnecessary risk. We were successful in our first bid, and it was definitely due to Andrew's excellent advice. Overall, Andrew was a pleasure to work with. He is super friendly, and made the entire process fun and pleasant. We felt comfortable asking him anything, and was always quick to respond to any questions. We would highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking to buy a home in DC."
Home buying in the DMV is never easy, let alone in the middle of a pandemic. And yet, Andrew made finding and securing our dream home seem as easy as pie. He facilitated multiple conversations with us about our needs/wants, provided advice on how to present our offer once we thought we found "the one", and was on top of everything leading up to the closing process to ensure we could close without a hitch. Andrew is incredibly experienced, empathetic, intuitive, smart, responsive, and hardworking. He is a consummate professional. He made us feel like we were his only clients, when we know that is far from the case. We could not have found our dream home without him and we are so grateful. To anyone reading this, do yourself a service, and give him a call.
I highly recommend Andrew Turczyn. He sold my DC condo in one weekend getting three escalating offers for more than I asked. Andrew is professional, personable, detail oriented, and extremely knowledgeable about my condo rules and regulations. He staged my condo to sell and the entire process couldn’t have gone more smoothly especially during a pandemic.
I highly recommend Andrew for anyone looking for real estate agent in our market! He is truly committed to clients, knows the market and helped to make the experience go as smoothly as possible. Andrew helped us find our first condo and was there every step of the way when we wanted to upgrade to a townhome in our SW neighborhood. He helped us track the market and showed us multiple listings (we put in a couple offers that didn't work out) but once our dream home was listed he was the first text of the morning. Thanks to Andrew's advice and expertise we were able to buy our home! He knew it was exactly what we were looking for and helped us put together the best offer possible. I will never forget his call telling me that our offer was accepted. I was over the moon! Then Andrew worked with us to update, stage and sell our condo the month after closing on our new home. He has a great network of vendors (painters, contractors, etc.) that helped us get things ready to list. We couldn't have done it all without Andrew!
Andrew helped me buy a townhouse and sell my one bed and den condo. He has excellent knowledge of the DC area since he has been here for so long. Andrew called me immediately when my dream home went on the market and he provided me with advice as I prepared my offer. When my offer was accepted, he helped me during both the inspection and the closing process. Andrew helped me list my condo and he received an offer for the asking price within a week. He also recommended maintenance recommendations when I needed to make repairs to my condo after the inspection. I highly recommend that you contact Andrew if you are interested in purchasing in the district.
We have had the pleasure and good fortune of working with Andrew on our second purchase and sale. Similar to our previous experience, Andrew drove the search and information gathering process, but also provided us with ample opportunity to share our perspective and fully participate. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Washington DC market and typical buyer/seller profiles, and flexed with our schedules and parenting demands by having evening/off hours conference calls to check in, review paperwork, confirm strategy, and discuss options. Andrew was upfront during the whole process of purchasing the new house and selling our condo - this is something we very much appreciate about him and what makes working with him enjoyable and low stress. Andrew was personable and we truly enjoyed spending time with him. Work with Andrew - you will be glad that you did!
Andrew is an exceptional agent. I live in New Jersey, and Andrew helped sell my investment condo in DC with an offer in less than a week for full asking price. I did not even have to travel down to DC once for the entire process, even the settlement was done remotely. He also helped manage my tenants with great professionalism, email updates, and walking them through the legal and selling process unique to DC. The marketing campaign/materials, property website, and the video tour were one of the best I have seen in real estate. I definitely highly recommend Andrew to anyone in DC metro area buying or selling an investment/residential property.
I have worked with Andrew twice - selling a property and then buying this past month. Andrew understood exactly what I was looking for, guided me to suitable properties and advised on what would be a wise purchase. I appreciated his diligence - and the fact he kept in constant contact as I was buying from a distance. My offer was accepted shortly after being presented - Andrew had crafted and presented a thoughtful and logical offer. I will definitely work with Andrew again and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced and effective agent. Thanks for everything Andrew!
Andrew is thoughtful, courteous, patient and knowledgeable. He stuck with us during our purposeful, extended search for the "perfect" home and helped us find the right buyers for our previous home. He answered all our questions with speed and a high level of understanding. There was never any doubt that Andrew was looking out for our best interest, and he could be counted on to provide honest feedback on potential properties - from the neighborhood to the price point to the quality of renovations and maintenance.
We had a fantastic experience selling our condo with Andrew. He was a pleasure to work with - quick, responsive, and knowledgeable. We called him for advice on whether to sell our unit and within mere days had it staged, photographed, and listed. We received offers quickly and ultimately sold for substantially higher than our asking price. We couldn't have been happier with the process of selling our condo, and have Andrew to thank for that.
While living in NYC, I was selling a condo unit in Washington, DC that had been a rental for several years. Andrew took care of everything including finding renovation contractors and materials, managing renovations, photography, staging, and consulting on market trends and pricing. We sold over list in only a few days. Basically, to get the place sold, all I had to do was exchange a few emails, and have a few short phone calls, with Andrew.
Andrew was a true partner throughout the process. As many do, we changed our minds (a few times) and required patience. He listened and provided guidance that helped us make the right decision. Additionally, when we encountered an issue after closing, he stayed engaged and helped us sort through what could have been a very complicated back and forth. I hope to work with Andrew again, should we find the need.
Andrew was an outstanding partner during the recent sale of our home in Washington, D.C. He was very knowledgeable on the neighborhood and community, and was able to provide us with valuable insight and recommendations leading up to and throughout the sale of our home. In addition, he was extremely patient with us, as first time sellers, and our 1000's questions. He is organized, responsive and thoughtful.
Andrew/Slate Properties began as my rental property manager and was excellent in every way, providing expert advice and fast service. As such when I decided to sell, I asked Andrew to represent me. Throughout the process he was knowledgeable, efficient, responsive, and professional. If I ever buy again in the DC area, I would definitely work with Andrew/Slate Properties again.
Working with Andrew was a pleasure. He epitomizes the term: consummately professional. He is extremely knowledgeable. Selling a home is so stressful and overwhelming, but the more I worked with Andrew, the calmer I felt because it became abundantly clear to me that he is an expert and knows what he was doing. He stayed engaged with me at every stage of the process.
Andrew was a fantastic resource throughout the entire home buying process! He met with us initially to walk through all steps, was prompt at answering or returning calls, and was flexible. His expertise was a great resource when we were uncertain, and we’re convinced we got the house we wanted at the price we wanted because of his help.
Andrew made selling my condo a breeze! He took care of every detail and struck just the right balance between getting my input and just getting things done - with respect to preparing my place for sale and executing the sale. And he got me a great sale price! I would definitely work with Andrew again and recommend him highly!
Thanks to Andrew we received multiple offers above list and closed quickly. We recommend him highly. Andrew has great local knowledge, presents an organized marketing plan, executes professionally, is very responsive, and positively coaches you through the transaction.
"My wife and I were very happy working with Andrew. He was professional and had a very good sense of the market and our condominium building. We started communicating early on our needs and he provided advice on things large and small as we considered how to approach selling our condo. When the time came to get the unit prepared for market, Andrew made sure it was efficient and there was no wasted time. He kept our interests first and told us he was thrilled with the outcome when we eventually sold-- and we agreed. We would recommend Andrew to any others in the Washington DC area looking to buy or sell a property."
Andrew was absolutely great. I'd highly recommend him. He had patience answering all my concerns, always returned calls and was available every time I asked questions or needed assistance.
This was the second condo we sold through Andrew. This time was much better because he sold it literally in 1-2 days after it was advertised and especially in this coronavirus situation. My wife and I thought Andrew did a great job!
I had an excellent experience with Andrew in selling my condo. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and guided me throughout the press with great communications and advice along the way. I would highly recommend him without any reservations.
Andrew helped sell our home in record time and for a record price. His pictures, description, attention to detail and personal service were second to none. Incredible experience and would not hesitate to recommend him for any real estate transaction.
