My husband and I just bought our first home in DC. During this process we worked with James Thomley from Real Living. James came highly recommended to us from a friend. Buying a house can be a very overwhelming and stressful experience, but James was very patient with us, and made us feel calm and confident throughout the whole process. We spent about 6 months working with James. During this time we changed our mind completely about what type of property we were looking for. He always listened to how we felt at the moment, and never made us feel rushed into settling for a place. I lost count on how many homes we toured. He always made himself available to us whether it was to answer questions or show us a home. When we toured a home, he always pointed out pros and cons, which was greatly appreciated since he is the expert. He explained the process of making an offer and what would make a great offer, but never pressured us to offer more than what we were willing to. He made sure that the closing process was very smooth and he kept answering our questions even after we moved into our new place. We love our new home and we would recommend James Thomley from Real Living to anyone.
