What People Are Saying...
"Dave and JoAnne Adams are everything you could hope for in real estate agents. They are kind, patient, attentive to details, always in your corner, and most of all, just fun to work with. We had an excellent experience buying our first home with Dave and JoAnne. As first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and Dave and JoAnne answered all of them without ever making us feel silly. They helped us with every aspect of the home buying process, from finding a house and putting in an offer to finding financing and a home inspector. Once we closed, Dave and JoAnne didn't disappear. They checked in with us to ensure we were settling in ok and even provided recommendations for contractors to help us make our house our own. We are so grateful that we got to work with Dave and JoAnne, and would 100% work with them again."
Tim and Taylor Hennelly
"We would recommend Dave and JoAnne Adams for all of your real estate needs. After listing our home for six months with another agent and having very little traffic, we listed with Dave and JoAnne. They took beautiful pictures and advertised better than we could have hoped, which gave us the results we wanted. Within 5 days of re-listing the house we had more activity than in the previous six months. Plus, we had an offer. Dave and JoAnne are a pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable of the market."
Teri & Guy
"Selling a house and buying a new house is not an easy process but Dave and Joanne have surpassed my expectations. They are extremely professional, responsive and they put their heart into this process. They made sure we found our "true home" more than a house! Their negotiation skills are 5 stars. They made sure to make the transaction as smooth as possible, going over rigorously every details and numbers so all is taking care before Closing.
But mostly what I found, beyond their REALTORS job, is their passion about what they do to help people, and they treated us like family more than clients and looked for our best interest in every way possible. This alone is priceless!"
"The Adams has been very professional. In our experience we have not found a more friendly "group", that could deliver the goods in such a quick order, I would have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone."
"We are now proud owners of our dream condominium. Joe and I know that your hard work and persistence made this happen quickly, effortlessly and efficiently. Thank you also for the many hours you spent solving the problems that always seem to arise in the purchase of property. You made the house hunting experience pleasant and memorable!"
"JoAnne and Dave definitely know Northern VA the best and helped me find exactly what I was looking for in Reston. They treated me very well - almost like family."
"Dave and Joanne were wonderful and we've actually become friends based on how personal they were and how in-depth their services were to me. They did their thing and did it well."
"Dave and JoAnne were amazing! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new home in Northern Virginia. They took care of everything and made the whole process very painless. They will be my first call if I need REALTOR services in the future!"
Scott & Kristin Happel
"I work with Dave and Joanne as a Settlement Agent. In my capacity, I see all of the interworking's of the transaction, and get up-close and personal with buyers and sellers. I am amazed at the level of customer care and customer service both Dave and Joanne extend to their clients. They truly seem to love what they do and care about their client's complete satisfaction related to the sale or purchase of their home. I highly recommend using these folks; you wont be sorry..."
"Dave and Joanne came highly recommended when we were looking for a real estate agent to sell our home in Burke. We had been building a new home in Texas and we're trying to manage the construction progress for our new home as well as the preparation of our Virginia home for selling. The Adams provided outstanding recommendations for service providers when we were looking for carpet replacement and painting and general repairs. They did a phenomenal job of preparing to market our home before we actually listed it for sale. Their recommendation for listing price was spot on in a very competitive market for larger home in the Burke area. After listing, our house was on the market for 18 days, we had two great offers, and we closed on the sale in three weeks. We couldn't have planned any better! Dave and Joanne were delightful to work with every step of the way. The were extremely responsive to our questions, made well supported recommendations, and were just a pleasure to work with!"
"When my husband I first engaged the Realty Group of Dave and JoAnne Adams of Coldwell Banker, we immediately learned how much professionalism and passion they bring to tier jobs. This passion is why they are so successful at what they do. And they do it all! Just about four years ago, we had the good fortune to have JoAnne represent us when we purchased our present residence. This was such a positive experience that we, once again, sought their counsel.
During our entire procedure, we were often on the receiving end of their many acts of kindness and generosity of sprit. My husband and I are in our eighties and do not get around as easily as in the past. When papers were to be signed and explained, and there were many, Dave and JoAnne simply hand carried them to us. This was also true of Ms. Wreath and Mr. Tinschert. Dave and JoAnne's advice was always sound, their support and follow-up unrelenting. They converted daunting problems into simple solutions and their sense of humor throughout always carried the day.
We are writing this recommendation because we wish to let you know how pleased and grateful we are, once again, to have had the full services of the Adams through the auspices of Coldwell Banker. We will be forever in their debt."
Charlene & Joe Comtois
"We had a very positive, successful experience with Dave and JoAnne looking for our first house. We are a first-time buyer and being military transitioning to retirement we needed someone with a lot of patience. We were able to email, call or text anytime with questions. They were very knowledgeable and helpful during the whole process. They listen carefully to your needs. They took the time to list out every school in three counties. I was very pleased with the outcome and I wouldn't hesitate to select them again whether selling or buying my next home. Very Professional and hardworking husband and wife team."
"We want you to know how much we appreciate your hard work. We were able to close the property within two and a half weeks from the day that we got the pre-approval loan. It was truly a commendable performance. We know these things do not happen without a great deal of your efforts and commitments to succeed.
We also appreciated you and your wife JoAnne for your honesty, integrity, great planning, and wisdoms. Both of your knowledge in this dynamic market were remarkable. You both made us feel as if we are part of your family. Thank you for everything. All the best!"
"Dave and JoAnne helped me sell my old house and purchase a new one. They were very knowledgeable and easy to work with. My old house was almost 40 years old and needed some work. They recommended competent and affordable contractors to get it all done in a timely manner, including same day service for the HVAC maintenance. The roofer and the handyman service they recommended were also excellent. They both went above-and-beyond when they helped to finish clearing out my old place and took the remaining trash to the dump after I became unable to physically continue. If you are over 50, don't try to move out of a 4 bedroom house by yourself! They performed equally well with the (fortunately) much less eventful purchase of my new home. I highly recommend them!"
"I found a house listed on their website. Dave and JoAnne took the time to show us the various options in single family homes and townhouses. After reviewing a few options, we knew what we wanted. They were patient and relentless. Outstanding follow-up!"
"It is my pleasure to recommend Dave and JoAnne Adams of Coldwell Banker for your real estate sales in the Northern Virginia.
Dave and JoAnne were very easy for me to work with. They had all the information on comparable properties in the area that I would have to compete with.
Dave called me in early December to tell me that an offer was received for the unit - only twenty-two days after it was listed. He made everything easy for me, particularly getting the documents reviewed and signed. Dave also kept me informed every time there was a matter that needed my attention.
I am very thankful for the help Dave and JoAnne Adams provided and for their expertise. I can confidently recommend for anyone needing to sell a property in Northern Virginia to consult with Dave Adams and JoAnne Adams of Coldwell Banker. They will have all of their needs met."
"I was extremely happy with Dave and JoAnne. Throughout the search phase and after going under contract, they were involved in all aspects of the process and responsive to any questions or concerns that I had. They provided sound advice and showed a thorough knowledge of the market. It eliminated much of the stress that comes along with home buying. Because we were moving in from another part of the country, they offered to do the walkthrough prior to closing to ensure that everything was in order. Having worked with multiple other agents in the past, this was my best experience by far. I am thankful to have worked with Dave and JoAnne and would highly recommend them."
"If you are looking for a new home or selling one, Dave and JoAnne are the ones to call. I have had a great experience having them as agents. I begin my home search in December and I was pretty excited and terrified at the same time. This was my first purchase and I know little about the area. Dave and JoAnne took the time to show me the areas I was interested in as well as educate me on the home buying process. The real estate market can be intimidating but this team makes it a breeze! I cannot thank them enough for their assistance and now I'm in my new home and loving it! Thanks again!"
"Dave was such an amazing agent and he took a huge load off the stress of moving. He was super-fast with responses and on top of everything from showing the apartment, getting the application to me, getting me in touch with the landlord, to signing the lease, all done within days. He also stayed with me as I settled in to make sure I had the right keys and he introduced me to management and other staff. As a single woman, I really did find that helpful. I never had a smoother move. Thank you!"
"Dave and JoAnne where very knowledgeable of the local market and did a wonderful job of managing the sale of our home. They were proactive in identifying potential issue and were extremely responsive to our needs and incoming requests. They come highly recommended."
"Our experience with Dave and JoAnne went beyond five stars. We were relocating across the country and couldn't have been luckier to have had the opportunity to have them as our Realtors. Having both Dave and JoAnne felt like you had a team working with you every step of the way. While one might be answering a question or helping us with one item, the other was working to be two steps ahead of us. They were both professional, honest, straight forward, and most importantly sincere. From our first meeting we felt comfortable with them and truly valued their opinions. This was critical because we only had a set amount of time to find the house and then had to do a large portion virtually while we finished our relocation. Overall it could not have gone better, we highly recommend them, and thank them for making it a fun experience!"
Kyle and Sandy Kurtyka
"Dave and JoAnne were excellent throughout our entire real estate transaction. They listened and made sure we saw houses that fit our very specific criteria, so well in fact, we found our home on our first outing with them. We closed on Christmas Eve and could not have received a better gift. Thank you!"
Maria and Jason Yates
"Dave and JoAnne were very helpful through the whole process of selling our home and buying a new home. They are very responsive and provide the information needed during the process in a timely manner. They handled all the details behind the process and provided insight to help us make decisions throughout the entire process. Best of all we had four offers on our home before it even went on the MLS. They really know how to market a home."
Kate and Peter Cote
"My family and I worked with Dave and JoAnne when relocating to VA from the West Coast. From the get-go Dave and JoAnne were responsive, attentive to our needs, and consummate professionals. They made it clear to us that they weren't just interested in getting us into any home, but in finding us the right home that would bring us enjoyment for many years. They stood by us through the many ups and downs of a very difficult market for buyers in North VA. It took much longer than we anticipated to find the right home, but Dave and JoAnne never wavered in providing their support and advice. And now that we have the keys to our house, they made sure to let us know that our relationship has not come to an end: They have been instrumental in helping us find a contractor to have work done in our new home, and are helping us to find other service providers in the area. I highly recommend Dave and JoAnne Adams to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Northern VA!"
"Dave was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process of buying our new home. Dave and JoAnne were there for us every step of the way, even when we had questions after business hours. We definitely would recommend them for anyone buying or selling a home!"
"Dave and JoAnne are fantastic REALTORS - they worked around my busy schedule and even toured homes on my behalf when I was out of town. They were very patient and took time to explain the process with a first time buyer. I highly recommend them A+++!"
"Dave and JoAnne were very helpful throughout the entire home selling / buying process. I highly recommend them for their experience and responsiveness."
"This fall my husband and I had to move cross country with very short notice. Selling a house is complicated and stressful, but doing so when you are 2500 miles away added so many more levels of complexity. Dave and JoAnne were amazing! They took care of coordinating everything. They went above and beyond to take care of things we could not have done, including taking care of our empty house as if it were their own. They arranged for us to sign the papers in advance and handled the closing for us. Their dedication and professionalism was apparent every step of the way. We highly recommend them to both buyers and sellers."
"Working with Dave was phenomenal. Very quick responses, extremely professional, abundant knowledge, and overall super great to work with. Dave made the process easy and enjoyable and I am very happy in my new home thanks to him. As a first time home buyer I was pretty lost, but Dave was very great about helping me find what I liked and what was right for me. I am super happy with my home and therefore when I decide to move someday, I intend to work with Dave again."
"Dave and JoAnne did a masterful job of selling our home. They exceeded our high expectations. We are very busy people and had a lot going on in our lives and they coached us through the process from start to finish. They helped us sell a house in a lukewarm market. They spent a lot of time helping us prepare our home for sale, giving us useful suggestions about how to make our home more appealing to buyers. They helped arrange contractors and even met several at the house when we could not be there. They pulled together comprehensive data and market intelligence that allowed us to price the house appropriately. Dave and JoAnne did a particularly good job of helping us negotiate with the eventual buyers and arrive at contract terms that were acceptable to both parties. Throughout the entire process, we felt Dave and JoAnne were honest and ethical and always had our best interests at heart. We would strongly recommend them to friends who are putting their home on the market."
"JoAnne made me feel like I was her most important client. She looked out for my interests and was in tune to what I was looking for. Everything worked out perfectly. I will recommend her every chance I get."
"JoAnne expertly guided me through the process of selling a home in a very difficult market. Due to personal considerations there was a narrow window in which the house needed to sell. JoAnne knew how to get the job done."
"Dave and JoAnne where phenomenal for both transactions. Fast to respond and proactive but never pushy. They are a seasoned professional team who have the foresight to take corrective action before a problem is able to develop. Not one surprise in either transaction, no wasted time and no drama. I appreciate professionals who tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear and do so in a tactful manner. Closed in two weeks, start to finish! I will be calling on them in the future."
"JoAnne is more than willing to spend the time to get it right. In viewing properties, she was able to discern from each showing those matters that were of most importance to me. The final location put me in the area I wanted, with the amenities I needed within the price limitations I was working with."
"I started working with Dave and JoAnne about a month ago when I started looking for a new house. They really knew what they were talking about and impressed me with their commitment."
"Adam's Team is great! They've repaired everything I needed to be repaired and even pointed out some other things that needed some work and helped with those too! They've even helped me clean!"
"Dave & JoAnne Adams are an EXCELLENT choice of Agents to meet your real estate needs. They are both highly seasoned Agents who will guide you through the entire process. We were particularly impressed with their follow up skills, people skills, & going the extra mile to take care of any & all issues as we were 800 miles away. It was truly as if we had a 'friend in the business'.
We would highly recommend their services & are 100% confident they were the best choice we could have made. They are the type of trustworthy people who not only become your Agent, but also become lifelong friends."
"Dave and JoAnne were absolutely fantastic! My wife and I and our two kids relocated from overseas and as such had a difficult time understanding the market and had a hard time communicating due to time zones. Dave and JoAnna made themselves available whenever we needed and displayed in depth knowledge of the area. Within 24 hours they had an analysis of available homes based on our criteria and recommended the house we selected! This is especially remarkable for my wife and I we looked at over 20 houses while in town with another REALTOR and finally called it quits because we were so frustrated. For Dave and JoAnna to come to the rescue and find us a house so quickly was amazing. Additionally since we did not know the area they were so helpful in providing info for places to go for everything from security alarms to doctors offices! We strongly recommend Dave and JoAnne to help families in the Reston/Herndon area. Finally a special thank you for their support for veterans!"
"Dave and Joanne Adams were an absolute pleasure to work with! We were first time home buyers and extremely 'green' to the home buying process. The Adam's walked us through what to expect at every single step throughout the process. Not only did they walk us through the steps they contacted us along the way to confirm completions of tasks and to see if we had any questions and to ensure we were 100% comfortable. Whenever we did have questions, no matter what time of day or day of the week it was, Dave and Joanne were extremely responsive and thorough. We would highly recommend Dave and Joanne Adams to anyone looking for a seamless home buying experience. They had our best interests at heart and went above and beyond to make sure that we ended up in the perfect home!"
Steve & Christine
"Dave and JoAnne Adams are an outstanding Team and we highly recommend them. They carefully listened to our needs, and worked quickly to identify potential properties in our price range and that met our requirements. They double-checked and validated the Listing data before taking us to see the properties, ensuring efficient use of our time. In less than 2 weeks, we identified the right property, and they skillfully advised/helped us on the offer process and potential risks. They negotiated several special requests with the Seller's Agent, and in all cases our small but important-to-us requests were met. Dave and JoAnne could not have been nicer and more attentive during the whole process, and even anticipated some roofing questions we had by calling in experts they had previously worked with to address the questions. We highly recommend Dave and JoAnne -- they are true experts, and the nicest folks we've ever met in the real estate business. Please call them first for your real estate needs -- you won't be disappointed!"
John & Darlene Hetrick
"Dave and Joanne Adams from Coldwell Banker were our REALTORS for the selling of our home at 12615 Noble Victory Lane in Reston Virginia. They did a superb job! This was a challenging preparation and sale as I was only in town part of the time. Dave and Joanne are the ultimate professionals. They did a thorough walk through of the house, identifying by room what needed to go or in some cases be repaired. For large repairs they provided recommendations on contractors and the results were outstanding. The whole Adams team was focused on making sure the process continued to move forward and still be as unobtrusive to the private life of the seller as possible. The home sold in 2 ½ weeks at a fair price.
In summary I would recommend the Dave and Joanne Adams team to anyone. Their concern for the welfare of the seller is genuine and I could not have asked for better service or experience!"
"I was extremely happy with Dave and Joanne. They went above and beyond at each step of my home buying process. They were extremely flexible with their schedule to accommodate me. They also did things that were outside of their scope. They gave me a recommendation for a contractor met me with him for the first time. True professionals."
"Dave and Joanne were very professional and helpful and fun to work with during the sale of our home. They were always right on top of things as they progressed and kept us well informed. I highly recommend them to anyone selling their home; or buying for that matter. Thanks Dave and Joanne!"
Jim and Debbie Purvis
"Dave and JoAnne are, simply put, PHENOMENAL! We were purchasing our first home and had no idea what to expect. Dave and JoAnne explained everything to us, step by step, with complete honesty throughout the entire process. Whatever we needed, whenever we needed it, the two of them were there for us. Their advice was always great, and I cannot stress enough how much their honesty meant to us. They really understood what we were looking for, and if a home didn't seem like it was for us, they came right out and told us. We never felt uncomfortable saying what we did or didn't like, because they always did the same, and it created remarkable open dialogue between us all. Thank you, Dave and JoAnne, for helping us buying our first home and making it such a wonderful experience."
"The Dave and JoAnne Adams were a delight to work with. From the initial consultation meeting to final settlement, Dave and JoAnne set and exceeded expectations throughout the entire process. From determining the price point, with extensive marketing analysis provided by Coldwell Banker, to negotiating final terms of the Sales Contract, these agents handled each issue that arose with tact and successful resolution. The entire process took 30 days, which is a testament to the overall real estate acumen and professionalism exhibited by the Dave and JoAnne Adams."
"Dave and JoAnne made the entire process easy and stress free - they are consummate professionals and I look forward to working with them on my next sale or purchase."
"We had the pleasure of working with Dave to find a home that would be perfect for our family. It was a bit more of a task considering we were going to buy without seeing first hand. Dave did a wonderful job at looking at all the places of interest and giving us his honest judgment. In the end, we have a wonderful place to raise our children. Dave is a fantastic person to work with."
"Dave and JoAnne shepherded us through our first home-buying experience. They explained the entire process on our first meeting, so we knew what to expect. When looking at houses, they noticed things about each house that we wouldn't have. They had fantastic recommendations for vendors. Overall, the process went smoother than I expected. They were supportive at every step, and were great about answering our questions, no matter how trivial or naive. I would highly recommend them!"
Daniel and Ashley
"Dave and JoAnne helped us buy our dream home! They were very responsive, knowledgeable of the Northern Virginia area, and great to work with. We definitely recommend them for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Northern Virginia."
Patrick and Sabrina Sanford
"My husband and I had the pleasure to work with Dave and JoAnne through a family recommendation. Dave and JoAnne were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the buying process. Dave was available through email and phone at all hours. They truly made our experience as first-time buyers a breeze. I would definitely recommend them, whether you are buying or selling a home."
"My husband I just recently purchased a home in Centreville, Virginia through Dave and JoAnne Adams. We had a very short timeline to search for houses, and Dave and JoAnne maximized our time while there to find us the perfect home. They were professional and very easy to work with making our move east, seamless. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new home in the Virginia area."
Jessica and Charles Scott
"I would like to express my deep appreciation to Dave and JoAnne for their hard work and incredible responsiveness. It was amazing how quickly you were able to mobilize the film crews and put our home on the market in both web and print. Could only have happened because of your direct oversight and continued presence. Thank you for being so responsive and available."
"We had an excellent experience with Dave & JoAnne. They don’t pressure you and worked on our schedule, always responsive, go above and beyond to help you and just amazing salt of the earth people. They also have an arsenal of professionals to help you with any issues that may arise. When things needed to be done, Dave and JoAnne didn’t hesitate to jump right in and take care of business. I would sum everything up with the first two words that come to mind when thinking about Dave and JoAnne and that is Professional and Integrity."
"Dave and JoAnne are very personable, well-spoken and articulate, always reinforcing a professional image. They are very knowledgeable, conscientious and extremely professional. I had great confidence in having this Team represent my interests, they are very reliable. Of special note is that we had already moved out of state and had to deal with a remote sale. They always kept me informed and quickly responded to any of my requests, which included responding to an after-hours emergency situation at our house. I 'highly' recommend Dave and JoAnne."
"Dave and JoAnne recently helped my wife and I sell a home. The transaction was very smooth and we never had a concern. They diligently handled all aspects of the process, from showings to contract negotiations, inspections through to settlement.
It was such a pleasure working with them. Very professional and thorough. Their response time to questions or concerns is almost immediate.
I highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling property. They are the best!!"
"Dave and JoAnne were very knowledgeable about the area. Huge advocates throughout the entire process. Even after the house closed, they continue to be supportive and answer questions quickly!"
"JoAnne and Dave have a wealth of experience and an extensive network of contacts that can assist you with all aspects of preparing a house for sale. They had recommendations for contractors, storage needs, 'junk' disposals and movers to name a few. They would provide at least 2 options for my consideration. Their recommendations were competent and reasonably priced vendors. JoAnne and Dave were always early for appointments and responsive by text, email and phone whenever I had a question, concern or problem. They are very observant and on several occasions pointed out potential issues that I did not recognize. Their entire purpose is to consistently represent you honestly and completely - you never feel like they are 'fitting you in their schedule' instead you have their complete attention. They are also when necessary, an advocate for you."
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Dave, very upfront and honest, detailed oriented from the tour all the way through to the close!"
Edward Strittmatter, Broker
"I just got a nice update from my past client Neil Muranaka updating me on the sale of his home and his plans in Dallas. He absolutely raved about you two and said you took very good care of him. I appreciate this so much. Dave and you made us look really good by referring you. Once again, CB came through because of you. Kudos! Thanks very much."
