FIRST TIME BUYER, WASHINGTON DC -
"I am a first-time buyer, and my budget was probably a bit lower than most of Annabel’s clients, but she treated me like a priority and was very helpful and responsive. In general, she is easy to get along with and extremely personable. Nailing down exactly what I wanted was very difficult for me, but she didn’t get frustrated with my nebulous notions through months of searching. Nor did she raise an eyebrow at my mother weighing in and tagging along. Annabel has an impressive depth of knowledge and gave me many area and situational tips. She worked around my schedule, even FaceTiming walk-throughs when I couldn’t leave work. She wasn’t personally available only a few times, and in those instances her operations manager, Maddie Strawn, stepped in. She doesn’t have the experience Annabel does, but Maddie is extremely friendly, has great opinions, and she and Annabel have a wonderful rapport, allowing an easy flow of ideas and questions. Ultimately, though, it was how Annabel handled everything when I finally found my place that unequivocally garners the five-star rating. She quickly and effectively helped me pull together my best offer for a time-sensitive, competitive submittal. Annabel has a talented network with terrific contacts for everything from inspection to handling my mortgage. Annabel knew exactly what mattered and even though my bid was lower than my competitors’, I still got the (now, my) condo! At our closing, the seller’s agent stated that it was Annabel’s work on the offer that got me my home. To anyone, Annabel would be an asset; to a slightly neurotic newbie like myself, Annabel was a blessing."
