Here's just a sampling of what our clients have said:

I cannot say enough good things about Edward and his team. As a first-time homebuyer at age 47, I was a bit skittish about the whole process. Edward was patient and explained things as many times as I needed to hear them. We made offers on three houses before finding the final one on which we were able to close. Each time was a bit of a disappointment, but I learned a lot from Edward and his team in the process. Rather than going with one of the big firms, I looked for a local real estate profession who took their time and represented my needs. Edward Slavis exceeded all my expectations and I will work with him again should I ever buy another home.

Edward was recommended to me by a family member when I moved to DC from New York. He explained the DC housing market to me and was unfailingly helpful and supportive as I sorted through my various options.
I very much appreciated his willingness to discuss the pros and cons of the condos we saw without ever pushing me in any way. He is detail-oriented, knowledgeable and very responsive. And he is a pleasure to be around. I would recommend him without hesitation.

— Ruth Meyler
I would gladly recommend Edward to anyone looking to sell their home. Edward and his team were incredibly helpful in the selling of my home. I have moved overseas and was worried about the process of selling the property without being present. Edward and his team handled the showings all while keeping me in the loop while living in England. Their professionalism and ability to handle the challenge of having a client overseas with a 5 hour time difference makes it very easy for me to highly recommend Edward.

— Gregory Raney
Michael was awesome to work with, from our very first meeting through the search, closing, and move-in. He was friendly and warm, immediately putting me at ease as a first time homebuyer. He explained the market, listened attentively to what I wanted, and responded quickly when I changed my timeline a few weeks after our initial conversations. He found places that met all of my requirements, was patient and provided a good sounding board as we visited them, even visited some without me when I had to work, and then helped me understand next steps when I picked the one. I really appreciated his thorough and understanding approach. He was never pushy, didn’t try to oversell me, and gave me the space I needed to make this big decision. I wouldn’t have wanted to work with anyone else!
I highly recommend Michael Sebastiani and everyone else at The Slavis Group. They were absolutely a pleasure to work with in a tough market and on a shortened timeline.

— Krystal Merchant
My husband and I are first-time homebuyers and met Edward for the first time several months before ultimately purchasing our home. He took time to sit down with us and walk through the entire home-buying process — from pre-approval and down payment assistance programs to house hunting and closing costs. It was tremendously helpful and gave us enough confidence to move forward with him as our realtor. When it came time to start looking, Edward would always make time for us on the weekends to do showings, sometimes spending an hour-plus at a property going over the details we should be considering before deciding to make an offer. We finally found a home that matched our must-have list and Edward helped us make a competitive and winning offer. And when our accelerated closing process occurred during a long-planned overseas vacation of his, he made sure we were in good hands with his colleague Anthony. Both of them were extremely responsive throughout the process and have continued to be helpful after closing. We will be recommending Edward and his team to all of our friends in the future!

— Gabriella Morrongiello
“Anthony is AMAZING!! Very attentive to my needs, wants, and desires. From Day One, Anthony was a great listener and honed in on what I was looking for in a home. He guided me along every step of the way and went above and beyond my expectations! My phone calls, texts, and emails were always replied instantaneously. He was available at all hours, day or night. I’d recommend Anthony to anyone needing a first-class real estate professional. He did a superb job negotiating with the seller’s agent to get us from offer to close. He even kept his cool when the seller’s agent got rude and pushy. He helped close the deal with zero problems. The purchase couldn’t have been much easier, from my perspective. I would highly recommend him and will use him again in the future!”

Edward and his team worked with us for almost two years as we looked for the right condo in DC. Throughout the process they were patient, knowledgeable and a real pleasure to work with. We are first-time homebuyers who wanted something pretty specific and Edward took the time to understand our priorities and guide us through every step of the process. We particularly appreciated his advice on negotiating strategies in a very competitive market. We ended up getting the property even though there was a higher offer. We would absolutely recommend Edward and his team.

— Natalia
Anthony has played an instrumental part in my first home purchase. He is detail oriented, kind, and always willing to go above and beyond for his client. I appreciate someone that responds quickly. Whenever I had question about a property, he would reply immediately- he is also available through multiple channels. I would strongly recommend him for any real estate related needs.

— Fatima Elgarch
Edward helped my wife and I purchase our first home in Washington, D.C. and we were incredibly impressed by his customer service and expertise. From the beginning, Edward sat down with us to explain the complicated process of buying a home. Although we were not aggressive homebuyers, Edward remained patient with us and continued to share with us homes that might fit our family needs. When we found the one we loved, Edward worked tirelessly to create a powerful offer that was accepted. As Edward always explained, it is not about the highest offer but the STRONGEST offer. And even though he was across the country on a personal vacation, he was incredibly responsive and made sure our offer was accepted amongst nearly a dozen others. During the contract phase, Edward was diligent in making sure we had everything we needed and assisted us throughout the closing process. Even after the purchase of our home, Edward has remained in touch to ensure a seamless transition as we work with general contractors to make the house our home. Thank you Edward and group!

— Gabe & Sha
My wife and I worked with Edward and Anthony to buy our condo in Capital Hill in November. We were considering not having an agent since it was new construction but we are glad that we used Edward and his team.
The building was almost sold out and Edward negotiated a deal that was under the list price. During the open house, there was a table that we really liked and Edward managed to work that table into the deal which was a huge bonus for my wife. He helped us through the home inspection and pointed out items that we would not have picked up on.
We also used Edward to try sell our current condo. Before we listed he told us that December was not the best time to sell and that there was a chance that we would not get the offer we were looking for. After about 3 weeks on the market we decided to rent our condo and Edward was completely supportive of the decision. He even offered to help securing the tenant.
Overall, Edward is a professional, very knowledgeable of the current status of the market and he truly wants the best for his clients.

— Steven Chen
Edward guided us through all of the steps of the home buying process, dropping everything to go to last minute showings, finding an exceptionally thorough inspector, negotiating an amazing deal for us, and when our home buying process turned Kafkaesque due to hidden issues in the seller’s side, Edward and his team navigated the situation carefully, providing us such regular updates. We relied on Edward’s recommendations for choosing our lender, and we would not have our home now if not for the work that lender put into resolving the seller’s situation. Edward also provided excellent recommendations for contractors to help us get the home move-in ready, all of whom were helpful, fast, and thorough. I can’t imagine what would have happened if we’d gone with anyone else.

— Emily McRae
My husband and I worked with Edward and his team to sell her townhouse, as we needed more space for a growing family. He not only helped us sell but he assisted us in buying our new home. We really can’t thank him enough for everything they did for us. His knowledge, responsiveness and overall attention to detail just cannot be matched. I would recommend him and his team in a heartbeat, the process couldn’t have gone any smoother and we are in love with our new home.

— Amy and Gordon Fleck
“We worked with Edward to buy our first home this past spring in northwest DC and can’t recommend him strongly enough, particularly for first time home buyers. As we got into the market, we didn’t know what to expect, what questions to ask, or whether our expectations were realistic. Edward was patient, walking through many, many houses with us over the months. He was excellent at helping us balance the pros and cons of each in a way that never felt like he was trying to push anything on us. He also got us comfortable with the idea of taking on some renovation projects, which really helped overcome anxiety and open up possibilities. What really impressed us, though, was how he helped us once we found our home. To get the house, he moved aggressively and had us do all the little things he could think of, and we were able to beat out five other offers as a result. From there, he connected us with fantastic contractors to carry out some renovation work and was in regular contact with us and the contractors to facilitate a smooth process. Overall, Edward is a total professional, deeply knowledgeable and helpful, a strong negotiator, and just a good person to work with.”

— Patrick Tobin
Edward was recommended to us by a friend, and we are really glad that he represented us for the sale of our townhouse in Springfield, VA. We were moving cross-country, and Edward did an excellent job handling repairs, getting the house painted, and staging it beautifully. We cannot emphasize how fabulous the staging was - we could hardly recognize our own house, and we thought it really brought out the home’s positive attributes. The house went on the market on Thursday and we had a great offer by Sunday. Edward explained all of the nuances and steps associated with closing, and enabled closing to happen within a month of us receiving the offer. Edward was always responsive and we felt that he adapted to our desired amount of communication, which we appreciated.
Our neighbor was selling his house around the same time as us and his took a lot longer to sell and sold for less. We thought Edward did a fantastic job of pricing, marketing, and selling the place. We spoke to a few other agents before going with Edward, and are confident that other agents would not have been able to ensure a sale at the price we got in the timeframe that Edward did.

— Shezad Lakhani
Ed and his team were incredibly helpful in the sale of our DC house, and handled all aspects of the sale for us, since we could not be in town to supervise it. From the moment we started talking aboutputting our house on the market, Ed made sure that we were well informed, not only about what to expect from the process, but also about what he and his team would be doing at each step of the way. Communication was clear, concise, and exhaustive - at no point did we have any doubts as to what was going on. His estimate was spot on, and led to a very quick and satisfying sale. Thanks to Ed’s negotiation skills and knowledge of the local market, we were able to sell our house fast and above list price. We will most definitely be using his team for our next purchase.

— Nick Lizop
As first time homebuyers, we needed a Real Estate Agent who not only knew the local market, but who would also be available to answer the countless questions that were sure to arise throughout the process. Edward Slavis was that agent, and so much more. From our first chance meeting, Edward took the time to get to know us and our home needs. Edward’s keen eye for detail and understanding of home construction helped us immensely as we toured homes and weighed the pros and cons of each. Edward never tried to pressure us into buying a home that was not right for us; it was clear from the outset that Edward wanted us to buy the house that was perfect for us, no matter how long that took. We are so grateful for his patience, but also his dogged determination to secure us a winning offer when the opportunity presented itself. When we did finally find the home of our dreams, Edward managed to put our offer together in record time. In addition to Edward’s skill as our agent, his vast network of home inspectors, contractors, and tradespeople took all the guesswork out of our small home renovation. We feel so fortunate for all that Edward did for us throughout the homebuying process and we recommend him without reservation. Hopefully we will not be in the market for a new home for quite some time, but when we are, we know who we will be calling!

— Michael Harrison
Edward was recently my realtor and I had a great experience. What I enjoyed about Edward the most was his ability to share his experiences and his expertise on all things about a home. Whether it be the quality of the appliances, the workmanship in a home, and/or ability to articulate the nuances of architecting/building a home. He was persistent, extremely patient, and never got frustrated with me, given I was so picky! While being my realtor, he also became a friend, and someone that I would highly recommend working with if in need of a realtor. Edward also always opened up his network to me if needed. Whether that was working with other realtors that he knew had experiences in something I was asking about, or sharing his contractor relationships to allow me to get expert feedback. That’s what I found really set Edward apart. He wasn’t just looking to make a sale, but he was looking to be a helpful resource for anything I may need. I highly recommend working with Edward, because you get more than just a realtor, you get a network of relationships and institutional knowledge!

Look no further - Edward is the agent you want on your side for whatever real estate requirement you have. Edward was our agent during our recent house hunt in northern Virginia. He accompanied us to about a dozen different properties, always prepared to give us his expert observations and professional input about each one. We ultimately found a home in McLean, VA, and Edward helped us negotiate an excellent price.

Edward is honest and straightforward with his input during the home buying process. As his clients, you will benefit from his experience in the local market. During our recent house hunt, he pointed out things in homes that we would have never noticed, which helped us in our decision-making process and, ultimately, in negotiations over the buying price.

Edward will listen to your needs and understand what you are looking for in a home. He is easy going, smart, and thorough in his work. You will feel comfortable that you are in good hands, and will never feel like you are being neglected as a customer.

We highly recommend Edward and are absolutely sure that you will have an equally positive experience.

— Joe Larson

We are delighted to write this review for Edward, who helped us to purchase our first home. Edward has three qualities in particular that make him an exceptional realtor: he is knowledgeable, he is reliable, and he is transparent. Edward worked diligently with us from day one, and was always prompt and courteous in his dealings. Although we know Edward has other clients, he made us feel like we were his top priority. Edward also went above and beyond in many ways, and quickly helped us secure estimates for work we are having done before we move in. He knows a lot about what goes into a house, and is always willing to offer candid advice. And if he doesn’t know something, he says so and does his research.

But apart from Edward’s outstanding professional qualities, he is also just an awesome guy. He has a great sense of humor and really put us at ease throughout the whole process. This was our first time navigating DC’s insane housing market, and Edward was there with us through the highs and the lows. Working with Edward not only helped us to find our perfect first home, but we also walked away with a friend. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

— Erik Beith

Working with Edward Slavis has been an extraordinary experience hands down! I started searching for my home at 7 months pregnant. Edward was the primary force in finding my perfect home, for the best price, and closing on my home days before my baby’s due date. The first time home buying experience can be very stressful and highly emotional. Now couple that with a very determined, hormonal, pregnant woman; can you imagine?

Nonetheless, Edward was there for me every step of the way. He went above and beyond to ensure I was well educated and well informed. His patience, professionalism, persistence, and positive attitude made my dream come true.

Thank you Edward Slavis

— Sheryl Skinner

Edward represented us in the purchase of our first home, and we cannot recommend him more highly. Edward is extremely reliable and knowledgeable. He also has amazing attention to detail, and can identify a house’s strengths and weaknesses that are not obvious to the average home buyer. You need someone who is truly in your corner and has your best interests in mind. That is Edward. He never allows his clients to settle or compromise on what’s truly important to them. He also takes time out of his busy schedule to check out homes for you (sending photos and scheduling debriefing phone calls) and is available at any time and at all stages of the house buying process. We couldn’t more grateful for Edward, and what he did for us to get our dream home.

— Lauren Baker

Edward is not only an amazing realtor, but a friend for life. Being in the military and moving every few years is hard. Buying a house while your husband is underwater on a submarine with no communication ability, and a newborn baby, adds so much stress! Edward walked me through every step of the process, from helping me access required information for the financing to the home inspection, there is no way we would have closed smoothly without him. He not only got us a good deal but went way above and beyond. He earned every penny he made from us. #1realtor #5stars
