What Our Clients Say...
We helped Nick and Teal find their perfect first home.
We got attracted to Dave when he would send us emails on his impressive analysis of the housing market in Bethesda & Potomac, MD which were areas we were interested in. When we made an appointment to see him, my spouse and I quickly made up our minds that he was the best person to be our realtor. As he presented himself, he mentioned one thing that we saw through out the process and that was his job was to represent our interest. This he did very well as we searched for a house. I recall even when we made mistakes to select houses that we would later on regret purchasing, he gracefully corrected us. In the end we got a wonderful house that we love at the price we could afford. The house had a few issues to address but Dave followed through as if it was his own house to ensure we got the best deal with the seller to address those issues. He even made sure we got the best contractors to address those issues and now we live in a fully functional house. He also recommended us to a great mortgage banker, Kevin Dunn of First Portfolio Lending, who helped us through very challenging circumstances to get the best financing deal to close on the house. If we were to rate his performance, we would give him 7 stars, however, we are limited to maximum of 5 stars. We would confidently recommend any potential house buyers to have him as their realtor.

This is the second house we've bought and it was a lot easier this time because of Jillian. First, she is incredibly responsive. Our buying process took place as she was planning her wedding but you'd never know it because she responded within the hour by e-mail or phone no matter what she was doing. She scheduled all inspections so we didn't have to do a thing. She is an outstanding negotiator. She got everything we needed from the seller and did so quickly and efficiently. Jillian knows her field and she clearly loves what she does. I highly recommend her to busy people who also have high standards.

Jillian was unequivocally wonderful to work with! She met with me at the beginning of my search for an in-depth discussion of what I was looking for, and she provided me with extremely helpful tips and instructions as a first-time homebuyer. Throughout the process, she was always readily available and very quick to respond. Once I narrowed down the neighborhood and buildings I liked, Jillian was extremely proactive in finding new listings so I was the first to see them, have time to visit and make an informed decision. After putting in an offer, Jillian was with me every step of the way and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She walked me through any questions or concerns, and I am extremely happy with my purchase and the entire process! A friend referred Jillian to me, and I would absolutely not hesitate to refer her to another friend.
Dave helped me find a great investment property in Bethesda that immediately provided positive cash flow. And his sense for a great location is very valuable as well. This house is two blocks from a Ride-On bus route that is less than 10 minutes from a Metro station! This will be very valuable the longer I decide to hold on to this property. I highly recommend that anyone thinking of investing talk to him...
Dave Kolakowski made our sale absolutely flawless! I won't say painless because this took a lot of hard work, ours and his, to conclude in such a smooth and fast sale. Starting weeks in advance and right through closing, Dave guided us through the steps of preparing to show (we learned what "de-clutter" really means); presented us his thorough plans for marketing the property; and explained the final details of the pricing and sales contract. His prep certainly paid off - listed on a Friday, open house that Sunday, contracted for list price on the Wednesday after. Impeccable service that we can highly recommend...and we're repeat clients: Dave was our agent as buyers years ago on this property and demonstrated again the same high degree professionalism and integrity. Thanks Dave...definitely five stars!
Dave is an incredible wealth of knowledge! He went way beyond simply navigating me through the process of buying my first home. He actually took the time to help me understand every step along the way. He is patient, a good listener and truly understands the buyer's perspective. With Dave, the process was easy. I absolutely love everything about my first home! None of it would be possible without Dave's guidance. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone interested in buying real estate.
