Anne and Nate, thank you and thanks to your team for guiding me through the transaction. It was a great result and I sincerely appreciate the top-quality work, attentiveness, enthusiasm and professionalism you brought to the transaction all throughout.

Russ - July 2014

Thank you! You all were terrific — totally buttoned up, strategic, and really fun. The perfect trifecta. You have a client for life, so hopefully I'll be coming back to you after school to see about buying a place. And in the meantime, I'll send my friends your way. Thanks again for everything.

Jen - July 2014

Nate and Anne — You have been perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Tarek - July 2014

I cannot possibly recommend Anne Savage and Nate Guggenheim highly enough. The choice to hire them to sell my apartment was the best possible decision I could have made. From the moment I met them, Anne and Nate's expertise and professionalism were evident, and I felt supremely confident in their skills and ability. My impression was right, and they did not disappoint! Anne and Nate were so communicative and attentive, I frequently felt as I if I was their only client. Anne and Nate aggressively marketed my apartment to both buyers and other agents, pulling in an impressive amount of traffic. They provided me with outstanding advice on how to prepare my apartment for sale, arranged for cleaning and window washing, and always made sure there were fresh flowers to welcome potential buyers. When it came time for contract negotiations, Anne and Nate provided me with excellent advice in a difficult and potentially sticky situation. At a time of great stress, I felt extremely lucky to have two such strong advocates working for me. In finalizing all the detail work involved in closing the deal and completing the contracts, they were very helpful and always on top of all closing requirements. My apartment sold quickly and for a great deal more money than I expected, and I owe this completely to the amazing job done by Anne and Nate.

Courtney - June 2014

It was absolutely the case that Anne and Nate were the driving force that helped us sell our house as quickly as possible for as much as possible. They listed the home for more than we had initially intended to list it and really did right by us. We received lucid advice and first-class service from a team that we feel ranks among the best agents in the city. They were worth every cent of a 6 percent listing, and we would not hesitate for a moment to use them again in the future or refer them to our friends. Please know that you have a fabulous, energetic and dynamic team on your hands.

Ken and Mary - June 2014

We wanted to let you know what an outstanding job Nate Guggenheim and Anne Savage did representing us in the sale of our condominium in Dupont. Throughout the marketing and sales process, Nate and Anne provided us with educated, well-researched advice, informed market analysis and solid business recommendations. Every aspect of this process went smoothly because of their professionalism. From the start, Nate and Anne went the extra mile to facilitate this sale. First, they conducted extensive research to ensure the right price point for the condo. True to their words, within four days of the property going on the market, we had two offers, one of which was for top dollar. They negotiated a quick closing and as a result, we were able to complete the sale within just six weeks of putting the property on the market — we were thrilled! Despite the anxious calls and emails Nate and Anne received from us on a regular basis about minute details, they never failed to respond promptly and with all the information needed to put us at ease. Simply put, every aspect of this sale was handled professionally, efficiently and thoughtfully — we are forever grateful!

John and Christine - June 2014

I really appreciate your time and efforts in helping David and me buy our first home. Everyone on the team made an otherwise daunting experience painless. And though it was certainly not the biggest sale your team will encounter, your responsiveness, attention and guidance was every bit as robust as I could have hoped.

Anne — thank you for meeting us where we were at. Every other agent I talked to wanted to push the limits of my buying power, but you listened when I said what I was comfortable with. You were flexible about showing us places at night, in the dead of winter — maybe a deal killer in other situations, but really what we needed. And when issues cropped up both you and Nate were right on it — totally responsive and able to dial down the situation into honest terms.

All of you are great at your jobs. You care about what you do, which certainly enhances the experience for the buyer. This transaction — the first home purchase — is a major life event. Yeah, its business, but it’s also a very gut-level emotional endeavor. You get that. Everyone wants to feel like they are making a smart decision with the home they choose. There are so many things that can go wrong. Ann and Nate, I thank you both for being the grantors of big-picture common sense and patience. I feel good both about my purchase and the way it went. And really, what more could you want?

Thanks again!

LAS - February 2014

We are writing to commend two of your agents on the stellar job that they did to sell our home this November. We listed our house with another agent in September/October and it did not sell, and we were quite disappointed. Anne Savage and Nate Guggenheim came and discussed with us why they thought we were unable to sell our house as well as their marketing plan and staging ideas. Unlike our previous agent, they did not just put our house into the MLS and wait for it to sell.

They told us that we needed to give them free reign on the house for three or four days before listing it, during which time they came in, moved all of our furniture, filled our garage with things they thought cluttered the house, and took out our TV (during the Worlds Series—one of us is from Boston). Despite all this, Anne told us it would take 3 weeks to sell the house and Nate said 4. In less than two weeks we had received a rather low offer, but Anne and Nate insisted that we at least play ball with the buyers. They negotiated strongly on our behalf, and we were able to squeeze quite a bit more out of the buyers and to ratify exactly two weeks after we put the house on the market and two days before we closed on our house in El Paso, TX.

It was absolutely the case that Anne and Nate were the driving force that helped us sell our house as quickly as possible for as much as possible. They listed the home for more than we had initially intended to list it and really did right by us. We received lucid advice and first-class service from a team that we feel rank among the best agents in the city. They were worth every cent of a 6-percent listing, and we would not hesitate for a moment to use them again in the future or refer them to our friends. Please know that you have a fabulous, energetic and dynamic team on your hands.

Sincerely Yours,

KK and MK

Dear Anne and Nate,

I can't believe you did it! Thank you so much for getting my house sold so quickly and for so much money.

As you know, the house languished on the market for 6 months with another agent with no offers and no real prospects. I was at my wit's end! And all those open houses to no avail. I think I saw every movie there was from March to July of 2007 just to be out of the house every Sunday.

Then you came along and changed everything. You were good to warn me about all my furniture being moved, hidden or tucked out of sight. But the place looked so good when you were done that even I wanted to buy it. I never believed that staging made such a difference, but even my own furniture moved around changed the whole look of the place.

Your candor in addressing the proper pricing of the house was most helpful. Until we met, I did not have a good understanding of the market in my area and reasonable expectations for the sale of my home. What amazed me even more is that you got the house sold in 2 weeks for even more money that I ever thought we could get. You are truly amazing.

Be assured that I am your greatest fan. You not only sold my house quickly, painlessly, and for more money that I thought possible, you communicated the process every step of the way to make it easy and almost fun.

I know who will be selling and buying my next homes to come! I have told everyone about you both. They look forward to working with you, when that time comes for them.

Thank you again!!

Warmly, 

JH

Dear Anne,

Thank you again for all your help in working with us to find a new home and sell our previous one. You listened to our needs, showed us places that fit our criteria, and kept a sense of humor all through the process.

In finding our current co-op, you were wise in showing us other units in the building early in the process to show us what a fine building it is. We were not interested in the one bedroom that we initially saw but knew we could live in this building. When the two-bedroom place came on the market, you coordinated to get us in to see it during the open house and also afterwards, so that we could investigate the property without any distractions.

Since our current home is a condo, we had a lot to learn. You were patient in explaining the ownership differences, the cooperative fees and how they differ from condo fees, and underlying mortgages and what impact they have on the price and value of the property. We understand now why a co-op is the best form of ownership for us.

All this was particularly interesting to us as a few months later when my father was interested in selling our grad school apartment, which was a co-op as well. As we were not involved in that purchase, co-ops were not familiar to us, but since working with you to find our current co-op, we knew you were the one to help us sell the other one. We knew that you would carefully explain the ownership benefits to any potential buyers. As you know, Dad is very pleased with the outcome. Thanks again.

We enjoyed working with you and are pleased to have a new friend as well.

Best to you,

DL and RSL

To Whom It May Concern:

I cannot possibly recommend Anne Savage and Nate Guggenheim highly enough. The choice to hire them to sell my apartment was the best possible decision I could have made.

As a first-time seller at a down time in the real estate market, I had very little idea of what to expect. From the moment I met them, Anne and Nate's expertise and professionalism was evident, and I felt supremely confident in their skills and ability. My impression was right, and they did not disappoint!

Anne and Nate were so communicative and attentive, I frequently felt as I if I was their only client. Whether by email, phone, text, or in person, they kept me fully apprised of every detail. They were always available to answer any question I might have, no matter how small or silly. They kept me informed every step of the way, and followed through on everything. Anne and Nate were nothing but a pleasure to work with.

I was particularly impressed with Anne and Nate's knowledge of co-ops, as they are somewhat uncommon in Washington, and many buyers and agents are uneducated about the differences between co-ops and condos, as well as the nuances in selling or buying such a property.

Anne and Nate aggressively marketed my apartment to both buyers and other agents, pulling in an impressive amount of traffic. They provided me with outstanding advice on how to prepare my apartment for sale, arranged for cleaning and window washing, and always made sure there were fresh flowers to welcome potential buyers.

When it came time for contract negotiations, Anne and Nate provided me with excellent advice in a difficult and potentially sticky situation. At a time of great stress, I felt extremely lucky to have two such strong advocates working for me. In finalizing all the detail work involved in closing the deal and completing the contracts, they were very helpful and always on top of all closing requirements.

My apartment sold quickly and for a great deal more money than I expected, and I owe this completely to the amazing job done by Anne and Nate. I absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Sincerely,

CEP

To whom it may concern:

I would like to take this opportunity to commend Anne Savage and Nate Guggenheim for their excellent work on the purchase of my new unit at the Potomac Plaza Terraces cooperative in Washington, DC. I found their work to be of the highest quality and appreciate the extensive amount of time and effort they invested in finding me the right property at the right price. They were happy to answer all of my questions along the way and made sure I understood each step of the home-buying process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else looking for a real estate agent and hope to continue working with them in the future. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for your time.

Sincerely, 

CL

Dear Anne & Nate,

I wanted to take a moment and thank you both for your help in finding Elizabeth and me our new home. We searched for a long time and covered a large portion of the city—from Georgetown to Dupont to Glover Park to Adams Morgan to AU Park to U-Street to Palisades to Foggy Bottom and finally Capitol Hill—and you knew all the spots and knew them well.

I often read or hear about people having difficult experiences with their real estate agents, but our experience working with you was an absolute pleasure. You always had our best interest in mind and you were not going to be satisfied with just selling a house, but finding the right house for us. You understand that there is more to real estate than just buying and selling property.

As first-time home-buyers we had a lot to learn. You took us through each step and made sure we understood each one along the way. If we were ever confused or unsure, all it took was a quick phone call and you were there help.

We are thrilled with our new place and could not be happier. Thank you both again for everything.

All the best,

BDC

Dear Anne & Nate:

Who would have guessed that pursuing a listing from Craigslist would find me an incredible real estate team and two great new friends! I should have known better than to try to find my first home on my own—and from Craigslist no less—but you two were there, eager to help, and happy to accommodate. I couldn't ask for more from a real estate agent ... or two!

You guided me through every step of the process, yet made sure to allow me to be comfortable making my own decisions and taking my own risks. You listened well, heard what mattered most to me, and helped me find the most perfect home.

I'm definitely recommending you to everyone I know!

Thanks again,

KM

Nate Guggenheim turned out to be just what I needed in a real estate agent. Moving from the Virginia countryside to an apartment in the city after 20 years was not easy, especially since I had 60 days to find an apartment, buy it, and move to it.

Nate, quick to understand what I wanted in a life style and equally quick to perceive what my unspoken needs were likely to be, found just the right apartment in the right building in the right area within a short period of time. Following through and conducting many transactions from 40 miles without traveling to D.C. posed a problem for me. Nate, the perfect gentleman, took over, going beyond the bounds of duty; he facilitated every step of the way! He has earned my loyalty and gratitude forever.

I have worked with many real estate agents in the New York City and Long Island area and I found Mr. Guggenheim to be knowledgeable, professional and creative. Since we never purchased a home in the D.C. area before, we counted on him to walk us through the process. In addition, he helped us work through the complex transaction of purchasing a property that was a bankruptcy case. It would have been entirely possible that we would have walked away from the purchase if we had been working with another Agent.

Thank you for the positive experience.

Sincerely,

AS

Dear Nate & Anne,

Long past due, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both so much for your wonderful, insightful, educational, helpful and fun guidance and work in helping me find the condo and home from which I now write to you happily. We started with my not knowing my search—the city, the market, and worst, my needs and desires—at all, and within a matter of weeks, with your extreme patience and generosity, I came to learn the city, and what I was searching for, extremely well.

As you know, this was my first time purchasing, and I found it infinitely more difficult and complex than simply renting, and not just because it was an investment. This was the first time I had sought out a "home"—versus a "house" or a dwelling for my belongings—and an identity of my life.

And with respect to the investment and transaction technicalities, when it came time to explaining and negotiating the details and signing and executing the legal contracts, you both were spot-on with the appropriate level of insight, support, and advice, without being either overbearing or under-supportive.

You both were patient, gracious, and fun in helping my pursuit. I had a great time those Sundays, and I hope you both had, at least, bearable ones. I hope we can enjoy similar ones soon, without you both having to work. I love where I live and from where I write, and I have you both to thank. Thank you so very much.

All the best,

CL - March 2013
