Dave & JoAnne Adams
Their eponymous “group” only comprises Dave and JoAnne Adams, but they are still a force to be reckoned with. “We’re small but mighty,” JoAnne attests, noting they are considered among Coldwell Banker’s top agents in the mid-Atlantic and Greater DC regions. “We just love helping people,” Dave says. “Clients feel our passion for real estate as soon as they meet us.” Married in 1978, JoAnne was an executive for many major national brands and Dave worked in the Secret Service for more than two decades before JoAnne transitioned into real estate, selling her first client’s home for $1.7 million. (“I ended up getting my real estate license because I was always driving her around,” Dave jokes.) They moved to Northern Virginia in 1991 and have been smitten with the area ever since. The duo can often be spotted volunteering in the community, mentoring students on Ethics Day at the local high school, feeding first responders, and delivering homemade cranberry bread and pumpkin chiffon pies to clients during the holidays. Dave is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and he also assists our brave men and women in uniform as a Certified Military Relocation Professional. “We give part of our commission check to veterans and those currently serving, as a way of thanking them for their service. We also support non-profits, especially those helping the homeless.” he adds. This past year has been especially challenging with limited inventory available and social distancing restrictions in play. But the Adams continue to expertly help buyers by providing video tours of prospective homes. “We’re strong believers in tech,” he explains. With the Adams group you get professional experience and personalized service. JoAnne says having constant access to her and Dave gives clients the best of all worlds: “We might have different opinions but we’re a united front when we’re working together. You get two for the price of one!”

RE + View, NVAR July/August 2017 – Personality Counts
David Adams, a Realtor® with Coldwell Banker Realty in Reston says he and his wife and business partner JoAnne Adams want to get to know their clients personally. “We truly listen to them and take ourselves out of the equation,” says JoAnne Adams. “It’s what they want, not what you think they want.” David Adams says sitting down for an in-depth conversation about what’s important to the buyers and to their family members is a good place to start. “We also listen closely when we’re looking at properties together and when they’re talking to each other in the car to really understand what they like and what they don’t want,” says David Adams.
David Adams says he and his wife talk about their former careers and share testimonials about their honesty and integrity. “We also show sellers facts about comps so they can see from day one that we are telling the truth,” says JoAnne Adams.
JoAnne Adams says building an emotional connection requires honesty and a cooperative mindset. “We try to avoid being too aggressive,” says JoAnne Adams. “It can be off-putting to clients and to other agents.” Getting to know sellers and what they love about their house and their neighborhood can not only deepen the connection with them, but it also helps sell their property, says JoAnne Adams.
