I highly recommend Nadia Nejaime!!! She has a law degree too so she is very thorough with the contract review, etc. And she is extremely personable!

I’ve posted on PoP about Realtors before, but I’ll do it again 🙂 I have used Koki Adasi twice, and will continue to use him again and again (and to recommend him again and again as well!).
He helped me with my first purchase, and was incredibly helpful at explaining all aspects of the process to me. Which was much appreciated since the first time going through the process can be quite nerve-racking. He was so great, that I returned to several years later after getting married as I was preparing to buy a home with my husband.
Here’s his contact info:

He also has a ton of reviews on zillow if you want to see what others have to say.
The best advice I can give you is to meet with a few realtors and see who you are comfortable with … I’m a realtor and I specialize in the Shaw/Logan/U Street neighborhood. Would be happy to grab a cup of coffee. I’m affiliated with Evers and Co. Cheers – Lars Anderson ([email protected])
I would very highly recommend Richard and Lenora Steinkamp with Long and Foster Realtors. They are warm, knowledgable about the real estate market and the buying process and about DC. The best way to reach them is through email: [email protected].
I would highly recommend Tom Spier from Greenline Real Estate. He helped my wife and I out, as well as many of our friends. He was great for us as first time homebuyers as he is very knowledgable of how much repair items will costs, if you’re looking at fixer uppers, and he knows the city well. He’s honest, straight forward and never pressured us into buying anything, unlike another real estate agent we worked with. I really can’t recommend him enough.

Rich Oder (long and foster) is the absolute best. My husband and i were total novices when we started out last year – Rich was patient, responsive, resourceful, funny – I can’t say enough great things about him. In addition to clearly walking us through the whole process and enduring our endless questions, he handled a tricky situation with the seller with professionalism, and fought for us right up to the morning of our closing (getting us another $1,000 in escrow at closing). We knew we weren’t “big” clients for Rich, but he never made us feel that way and always had time for us. Rich is just awesome. Email him at [email protected]
I had an amazing experience with my real estate agent, she was super personable and hard-working. She wasn’t pushy, which was perfect, and she knew the DC market well. She even showed me places that werent on the market yet, still being renovated, because she knew the developer or contractor. Market turned out to be really competitive and she was critical to my recent success.
