"Shamus was great to work with! Friendly, very timely with his responses, knowledgeable of the area and of the home purchasing process. He took the time to go over the entire process, was available for any questions I had and ensured I found a home that I desired."
"Shamus worked with my wife and I for a few months as we looked for a new home. He got us the newest listings right away, worked around our schedules, and listened to what we were looking for. He also helped us assess our financial options in a way that worked best for us, without pushing us in any one direction or another.
Once we found a place and got to the negotiation and contract stages, he handled everything extremely professionally and provided excellent advice. We got our new home for the price we wanted, navigated small bumps in the road without any issues, and are happy to be settled into our new home. Our kids even got to know Shamus by name, and enjoyed the process of visiting homes with him. We would highly recommend Shamus to anyone looking to move in Northern Virginia"
