TESTIMONIALS

“Heath is amazing!! He is very professional and quick to respond. He is extremely patient. We were first time home buyers and he helped teach us everything. He made the entir…e process really fun and fast. From our initial meeting, we toured houses within five days, and were under contract in a week. It was phenomenal. I know luck was certainly in our favor but Heath was a huge part of it. He negotiated with the seller who had other offers but chose us. Also he has an amazing networks of other professionals (arborist, inspector, termite exterminators etc). We cannot say enough good things about him. Everyone should work with Heath!”

“Heath was a great partner in helping me find my new home. He advocated strongly on my behalf, helping my offer beat out one that was all-cash! Highly recommend.”

“Heath was responsive, easy to communicate with, and extremely patient with us throughout our home search and buying process. He is very knowledgeable and proactively helped us find all the information we needed to make informed decisions. He also successfully helped us negotiate a lower price for our house. It was a pleasure to work with him and I would highly recommend him!”

“About a year ago, I contacted Heath. At the time I was just thinking about selling my place and upgrading to a larger place. I explained to Heath that I was not ready to make… the jump but wanted to learn more about the process, the neighborhoods that were out there, and what my budget could actually get me. Heath was great! He met with me to discuss my current condo, financial situation, and credit situation. He put me in touch with the right people to build my team of experts to get me though the process. Over the next 10 months we met once a month to see different neighborhoods and what my budget could get me in those neighborhoods! When I was ready to upgrade Heath helped me through both the sales process for my existing property and the purchase process for the new one. Since he spent so much time with me in the months leading up to the purchase, he really understood what I was looking for. The day after I went under contract on my condo, Heath called me up and insisted we go to look at a property that afternoon. He was right, it was the property I was looking for! We were under contract on that property 24 hours later! Bottom line, if your looking for a realtor who is very hands on, who will answer all your questions, and who will get you the right place for you then hire Heath!”

“Heath is phenomenal. He was always available and quick to respond to any type of communication. As minor challenges came up, he addressed and resolved them swiftly and effectively, while keeping me reassured along the way. He is extremely personable, genuine and worked immediately to instill trust and confidence with me. He has become a friend and a trusted advisor in many areas and will definitely be a part of my future real estate endeavors.”

“Heath goes above and beyond her duties to insure a smooth real estate transaction. I never once felt that Heath was pushing me just to land a commission on sale. He was there to find us the perfect home, not just a house. We looked for a few months and settled on new construction. He kept us up to date and followed up with the building and lenders allowing us some peace of mine. We were in terrific hands and I will recommend Heath to anyone looking to buy, and when/if I sell he will be the first one I call.”

“My home buying experience was amazing and I owe that to Heath. Heath is thoughtful, thorough, and very knowledgeable about his craft. I enjoyed the weekend showings, the daily listings, and Heath’s availability to always discuss a house. I would definitely recommend Heath!!! He’s awesome!!!”

“Heath is very knowledgeable in the area of DC, which I liked most about it is that he took his time to study the area and send comparables before making my decision to buy my first investment property.”

“Heath was very personable and knowledgeable. He worked to assist and support me throughout the process remaining attentive and available. He was very familiar with neighborhoods and when I asked for additional information he didn’t know the answer to, he consulted with peers to get the answer rather than making one up. I appreciated his services and would recommend him to a friend.”

“Heath did a great job selling my place. We actually connected one year ago when I was just starting to get ready to sell. He gave me advice on what to fix up, what not to fix…, what color to paint the walls, and how to best stage the place. He kept in touch throughout the entire year and continued to offer advice! When it came time to sell Heath was great at getting me the price he knew I needed. He communicated well and explained each step throughout the entire process! I would recommend him as a realtor!”

“Heath was very patient as we explored house, after house, and condo after condo. He was committed to helping us find the perfect fit. He really knows the real estate world well, and is very knowledgeable about different DC neighborhoods.”

“My husband and I finally decided to take the plunge and buy a place after years of talking (and waffling, and fretting) about it. Needless to say, as first time buyers we were more than a little nervous. It turns out we had no reason to be. Heath Graves made the entire process about as painless and seamless as I imagine it can be by virtue of his patience, knowledge and intuition.”

“My husband and I finally decided to take the plunge and buy a place after years of talking (and waffling, and fretting) about it. Needless to say, as first time buyers we were more than a little nervous. It turns out we had no reason to be. Heath Graves made the entire process about as painless and seamless as I imagine it can be by virtue of her patience, knowledge and intuition.

Heath was unendingly patient with us as new buyers while we learned about the process of buying a home. He was never too busy to answer our questions, often responding to emails sent during normal hours (including the weekend) within minutes.

He also displayed immense knowledge of the local market. Not only did he have an impressive off-the-cuff knowledge of local comps and price histories, but he was also aware of the status of various development projects and other details that I never would have even thought to ask about (how old are the streetlights in the neighborhood you’re looking?). This knowledge also carries over into other areas, and Heath has an extensive network of contacts in the finance, design, legal, insurance and other industries affiliated with real estate.

Finally, Heath displayed great intuition (and more than a little diplomatic panache) in helping us find our home. My husband and I initially had very different ideas of what we wanted. Heath was able to very quickly identify the common elements in both of our wishlists, and show us homes that ticked all of our respective boxes. That he was able to bridge the gap between our disparate desires, and do so quickly, was a minor miracle.

Heath came recommended to us by a friend who had recently completed a relatively complex real-estate transaction, and was thrilled with the results. We chose to work with Heath on the strength of this recommendation, and we are so glad we did. My husband and I would unreservedly recommend Heath Graves to anyone looking for a talented realtor with a deep knowledge of the local market, and who isn’t afraid of a challenge.”

“There are not enough words to express our gratitude for Heath’s hard work and dedication. The facts speak for themselves: Heath stuck with us for over a year, during which we 1) lost multiple bidding wars and 2) won a bidding war, went under contract, and then had our contract ripped away when a tenant sold their TOPA rights to a developer.

On our final house, Heath was instrumental in winning a bidding war of over 15 competing offers and convincing the seller to choose our offer despite higher offers. I’ve never heard of such a feat.

He consistently went above and beyond the call of duty, whether it was communicating with the sellers to smooth over various issues or making sure that the lender followed through. Heath always bent over backwards for us.

Heath never pressured us in any way and always provided wonderful insight. We have already recommended him to friends and will continue to do so. Best agent in DC.”

“Heath went above and beyond time and time again. I hope all first time home buyers are so lucky as to have someone like Heath on their side. He is patient, understanding and responds immediately to things. My transaction was a nightmare due to many issues on the seller side and I never would have made it to closing without Heath. Id highly recommend Heath to all buyers and especially to first time home buyers.”

“Heath is quite possibly the best realtor in the area. We’ve worked with other realtors before so we’re able to compare. Yes, he’s that good and with a friendly personality to match. Aggressive too, he helped us in a bidding war and with appraisal negotiations. he checks in regularly and is quick to respond to emails. Heath has mortgage lenders and title companies he works with on a regular basis. We would recommend you take his suggestions and use them because it made the whole paperwork process run smoother. Overall, great experience with Heath from beginning to settlement.”

“Heath is a real treasure. He helped me every step of the way on my journey to buy my first home, including referring me to other great professionals (home inspectors, insurance agents, contractors) when I needed them. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive; no detail escapes his attention! I highly, highly recommend him.”

“Working with Heath made the whole process of buying and selling my condo as simple as possible. He’s very knowledgeable, responsive, personable and I would highly recommend his services.”

“Heath is absolutely the best!!!! I was relocating from Asia and Heath made my purchase extremely pleasant even through all the difficulties of being overseas. Extremely attentive and sincerely caring agent which is obsolete these days.”

“As a first time homebuyer, Heath was there every step of the way and answered even questions that weren’t real-estate/ property related (i.e. mortgage advice, potential renovations, etc). He managed to deal with a seller that didn’t have a selling agent and represented themselves, which caused a few headaches along the way, but nothing Heath couldn’t handle. In a highly competitive market and a property with several offers, with Heath’s advice and skill we managed to secure the winning bid. I’d highly recommend for any future buyer. He’s very responsive, organized and knowledgeable. Not to mention, very friendly! Would absolutely work with him again.”
