Recently, a friend reached out to me for help. He was trying to hire a CFO for his large D.C. firm, but lost the candidate because his Realtor had not been helpful. I immediately reached out to Deborah & Rene.  They searched high and low, and located an ideal property for this Executive.  My friend was extremely pleased, and I was very grateful to the Fonsecas for solving the problem, because it was now my reputation on the line!  They demonstrated how important customer service is, and how hard they work for their customers. They do this for everybody. I would refer this team to anybody looking for a property. They go above and beyond.”
