Nate and Jackie came highly recommended by friends of ours even before we started our home search in earnest. After meeting several different realtors to gauge their level of service, knowledge, and commitment, my partner and I were immediately at ease after our first meeting with Nate and really appreciated his patience and wealth of knowledge, especially as first time home buyers. We knew he was the right realtor for us as soon as we left our first meeting. Nate made no attempt hurry my partner and I along through the home search process - we were at it for several months before really narrowing down our criteria and finding the right properties to make offers on. Nate and Jackie recognize the internal process that a couple needs to go through when looking for and home and they are happy to lend advice and input when asked, while at the same time not trying to push you one way or another. We could not have appreciated their straightforwardness and sincerity more - it is a stark contrast to the personalities of some agents we met prior. Nate and Jackie spent an unbelievable amount of time working with us to find the right house, and never once did we feel rushed or anxious in the process. In an age of instant digital transactions, our experience with the Capital Park Team was a pleasant reminder of what top-notch people-oriented business can be like.
When I say Nate went above and beyond the call of duty to help us through our search, I am not exaggerating - I have never experienced this level of service and commitment before. As soon as we pointed out properties we were interested in, Nate and Jackie would respond immediately and work to get us into these homes later the same day. We spent several months looking at dozens of properties with Nate - even nights with torrential downpours didn't slow Nate down from showing us places in Columbia Heights, the H St corridor, and Capitol Hill. We saw the full gamut of housing stock DC has to offer - posh move-in ready condos to dilapidated fixer-uppers and short-sale units. Nate has a wealth of home construction knowledge, which proved to be invaluable as we toured some of these older homes. When we found the place we ended up buying, Nate had no qualms about taking me on a tour of the crawlspace so that we could inspect for termite damage before the official inspection. This was unnecessary but appreciated nonetheless as it allowed us peace of mind as we entered the negotiation process since we had an idea of what the sub-floor looked like in advance.
As excited as we were once we closed on our home, my partner and I were somewhat sad since we had grown used to seeing Nate and Jackie on nearly a daily basis by that point. We bought a house and ended up making some pretty great friends along the way! Capital Park Team will, without a doubt, be involved in our future real estate dealings in DC. Thanks Nate and Jackie!
