Helping a buyer find a new home or selling a property for a homeowner is more than just numbers or searching through photos of houses on a computer screen. It’s about identifying the personal connection someone has to a specific home and a neighborhood. With my buyer clients, I focus on the where and what that draws their attention and emotion. This focus ensures we find the right property and community so that a house becomes their home. With clients who are looking to sell, understanding the reasons why they were drawn to purchase their home years ago, are often still the most valuable selling points today. A home is where the majority of our time is spent, which is truer today than ever before. The process of buying or selling a home can be a stressful, and rather stiff, situation, but it doesn’t have to be. Whether it’s new clients, first-time homebuyers, or friends-turned-clients, we all want people to see and like who we really are. By being candid, responsive, relaxed (yet professional), and a little humorous (because why not?), my clients see who I am and know I have their best interests in mind.
From Monica and Chris in Falls Church, VA: “Adam came recommended to us, and made our (first) house buying experience seamless. He was professional, courteous, and quick to respond without exception. In addition to being successful though, working with Adam was a joy because he was always candid and without pretense. At open houses we would see other realtors that looked exhausting and high pressure; we were glad to be working with Adam. He was there when we needed him but never asked us to justify when we didn't like a property or needed last minute adjustments. We can recommend Adam's services without reservation!”
When I’m not with clients, in my free time I can usually be found at local ice rinks coaching youth hockey, out on the golf course (probably searching in the woods for my ball), or watching my beloved Michigan State Spartans on the court or gridiron. Having grown up in Northern Virginia, including as a graduate of Langley High School in McLean, I’ve made Arlington my home since 2010, where I live with my wife, Erin, and our dog, Reggie. “I’ve always subscribed to the belief that real estate agents are meant to help their clients decide what is best for them, not sell them on a house to buy or pressure them to take an offer received on their home because it’s the easiest option.
In an age where we all have an abundance of technology and information at our finger tips, my clients are not only looking for my guidance and expertise, but also a connection. A connection on a familiar, personal level so that trust is built and I can help them make these important, lasting decisions.” -Adam
