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.
-Tim Burns, Client
"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."
-David Moretti, Client
"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."
-Majora Evans, Client
"The Adams Group has been a 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. "
-Carlos J., Client
"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, Client
"Dave and JoAnne were unbelievably helpful in finding the right house for our family. They were trustworthy in their search and maintained an open line of communication throughout the process. We were unable to be physically present throughout the process but they went out of their way to to make every detail about each home known to us. I would recommend them for anyone moving to the NOVA area."
-Joseph Weinburgh, Client
"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."
-Mark Vandeyar, Client
""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, Client
"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. "
-Katherine Meir, Client
"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, Client
"Dave and JoAnne Adams were a fantastic realtor team to work with. We purchased a home in June 2021, sight unseen, since we were living abroad at the time. We were confident in the home purchase given the level of trust that we had developed with Dave and Joanne over the prior two years working together and would strongly endorse them to work with any future clients. You will not be disappointed with Dave and Joanne. They listen to their clients' priorities and adjust as those priorities change.
Dave and JoAnne worked with us over a 2-year period, keeping us updated about local conditions until the time we were ready to start the home search process in earnest. Once we started searching actively, they were able to assist with related services -- mortgage financing, house cleaning, HVAC repair, chimney services, etc. -- related to the purchase of a home. Once we closed on the home, Dave and JoAnne coordinated visits by house cleaners, HVAC service people, and rental furniture delivery."
-Ed Boucher, Client
"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!
-Kentez Montgomery, Client
"Dave and JoAnne,
You truly made our home search a breeze, despite the many challenges and unusual home market nuances in VA. You made the process seamless. We are glad to have met you and have you as our house hunting resource. Your friendly and approachable personality made it easier for us to have our many questions answered. Also, every individual you referred us to, from the lender to the sprinkler system expert, provided outstanding customer service, a testament to the quality of work and relationships you both have.
Thank you again very much for getting us to the finish line.
Alex and Tiffany"
-Alex and Tiffany Ulloa, Client
"Dave and JoAnne can't do enough for their clients. They're always available to you, to a fault. If you need something, anything, they know someone, and have done it for years. You won't regret hiring them."
-Keiron Greenhalgh, Client
"Their customer service and knowledge were excellent. They were very accessible. We found a house I wanted and made an offer the next day. Everything moved like clockwork - securing a loan, inspection and closing. I couldn't be happier. I would recommend Dave and JoAnne Adams to anyone looking to buy a home"
-Betsy Gundorf, Client
"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." "
-Tom M., Client
"Dave and JoAnne handled our search during the Pandemic with outstanding attention to all the features we wanted in our house. Their experience certainly helped us get to know Reston, Fairfax and Herndon and taught us a lot about how to buy in a competitive market.
They knew how to get the closing to take place in a timely manner, and expedited the process as we bought our home from a relocation company.
We recommend them highly!”"
-Jay and Janet Silverberg , Client
"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 the time to explain the process with a first time buyer. I highly recommend them A+++!"
-Thomas Lam, Client
""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!""
-Christine and Steve Hand, Client
"I recommend Dave and JoAnne to anyone looking to buy a house. As a first time home buyer, they answered all my questions at all hours of the day and were a great resource throughout the process."
-Madeleine Klichowski, Client
""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. She obviously knows northern Virginia well as she was helpful with commuting details and school info. I will recommend her every chance I get."
-Kenny Sheets, Client
"It is my pleasure to recommend Dave Adams and JoAnne Adams of Coldwell Banker for real estate sales in the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. Metro areas.
I was confident that my property in Herndon could be sold at a fair price. Still I knew I needed help to prepare my unit for listing. I was given a slender time frame to find a realtor in Virginia, find a new place to live in a new city and state, complete my duties at my current job, move my household goods to my new residence, and get myself to my new city for my new job.
Dave and JoAnne were very easy for me to talk with. I'm very thankful for all the help of Dave and JoAnne Adams and for their expertise. Dave made everything easy for me, particularly getting the documents reviewed and signed. Dave kept me informed every time there was an issue that needed my attention.I can confidently recommend for anyone needing to sell a property in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. Metro areas to consult with Dave and JoAnne."
-Neil Muranaka, Client
""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 group 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! They were delightful to work with every step of the way. The were extremely responsive to our questions, made well supported recommendations, and a pleasure to work with."
-Kevin Apel, Client
"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 Cote, Client
"Selling a home is a stressful process and Dave and JoAnne have minimized the stress and have gone above and beyond what most Realtors do in terms of helping you get a house ready to sell. Local knowledge: They monitor the local market daily., use all available research engines to inform themselves and customer as to what is on the market and what current price trends are etc.
Responsiveness: Responds to all calls and emails on a very timely basis. In contact almost daily. Negotiations skills: They are both very affable, engaging individuals and have excellent negotiation skills.
The Adams Team is highly intelligent and have immersed themselves in the Northern VA real estate market.
They expertly staged the house and monitored the repairs which needed to be made before putting it on the market.
in addition, they are very well informed as to the availability of on line media and put together an excellent marketing campaign .
I have recommended them to my neighbors and f"
-Carol Zimmerman, Client
"Dave and JoAnne were so easy to work with as well as being exceptionally knowledgeable with the local market. They guided us through every detail of the process - including how to get this done in a Pandemic!!!! Not a single detail was overlooked in the listing and marketing of the property and the location. Our home went on the market as soon as it was ready and sold in 4 days for more than we were asking. They guided us through the negotiation process and closing while we were already in our new city. We received updates on the status within minutes of any progress or obstacle. They worked with our cluster HOA as well as Reston Association to clear a few hurdles with ease. We would encourage anyone thinking of selling, buying or renting to strongly consider the Dave and JoAnne Adams team."
-Mike McCarthy, Client
""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.""
-Brian Mann, Client
"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, Client
""Dave and JoAnne Adams are outstanding 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."
-John & Darlene Hetrick, Client
"Dave and JoAnne were fantastic to work with! This is the second time we've used them for real estate services and we could not wait to get to work with them on both selling and purchasing our new home.
Our house was sold in under a day and we found and put an offer in on our new home in the same amount of time. It was a result of their hard work and dedication to taking care of us as clients!
I would highly recommend Dave and JoAnne for your real estate needs, they were extremely helpful and answered our calls or texts at any time of day. They made sure we had no questions and were comfortable the entire time in what can be a stressful process of buying or selling a home."
-Steve Hand, Client
"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."
-Kevin Conlon, Client
""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.""
-Greg Davis, Client
"We were executors of an estate that included a house in Reston that we needed to sell. It was built in 1984 and had very little done to it aside from maintenance items including a new roof, windows and heat pump. We were also on a fairly long timeline, vacating the house in the fall when we contacted them in February. They were simply awesome. They told us what we needed to do to make the house attractive for selling without doing more than needed. They kept in touch as fall approached. And then Dave found us a buyer before the house even went on the market. He negotiated a price above assessed value that permitted us to basically sell it "as is." He was with us every step of the way, open and honest at every turn, present at the inspections, and helping us navigate the draconian Reston Association requirements. It was a pleasure working with him."
-Melinda Bradford, Client
"When my husband I first engaged Dave and JoAnne, 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. 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. How pleased and grateful we are....We will be forever in their debt"
-Charlene & Joe Comtois, Client
"Dave and JoAnne helped us buy our dream home under interesting circumstances and sell our previous home in record time and above the asking price. They are amazing to work with, extremely responsive and they always have the best interest of you the customer in mind.
Hoping not to move again for a very long time, but if that day were to come unexpectedly they would be the first people we call!! "
-Lorna and Justin Drennan, Client
"House hunting from out of state can be daunting and even uncomfortable but Dave and JoAnne made it easy and seamless. From FaceTiming showings to negotiating on our behalf, they made the home buying experience easy and stress free. We always felt like we were their priority and they were always willing to do what it took to ensure we were taken care of. We purchased our dream home and we couldn’t have done it without them!"
-Reed MacKenzie, Client
"Dave and JoAnne Adams provided great care, patience and service by finding a home for our family to purchase in a tight housing market. He also supplied a finance contact that was equally professional and competent in assisting us throughout the loan process. I definitely would use The Adams Group again but the question is...would they work with me again????
-Dennis Askins, Client
"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."
-Danny Pelsinger, Client
"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!"
-Rachel Leimbach, Client
"We are so happy that Dave and JoAnne Adams were our agents! We highly recommend them both. They are the quintessential professionals in their field. This is probably the worst timing in the market to purchase a home, Dave and JoAnne worked tirelessly to help us find a property we could love. They were constantly updating us on comps in communities, recent sold properties and upcoming properties. They kept a chaotic experience manageable. Beyond their immeasurable real estate knowledge, they are easy, affable kind people. We not only met 2 great agents we made 2 dear friends!"
-Linda Christian, Client
"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."
-Reginia Benjamin, Client
"Dave and JoAnne were wonderful in handling the recent sale of a property we owned in VA. We currently live in NC. Concerned about the long-distance relationship, but not with these two professionals. They listed, advertised and sold our unit in 2 days. Then they went on to continue making the selling process again seamlessly. They handled the contract information, settlement information and closing without a hitch. We will definitely use their services again. They are the epitome of what a realtor should aspire to be....Knowledgeable, trustworthy and truly concerned about their client."
-Patricia Schwartz, Client
""We are now the proud owners of our dream condominium. Joe and I know that your 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!" "
-Charlene C., Client
"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."
-Annie Chenaphun, Client
"We were in the process of moving from California to Virginia for a career relocation. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to travel and search for a new home in-person. We were introduced to Dave and Joanne Adams. We chose to work with them because of the expertise in the McLean/ Great Falls/ Oakton area.
Both Dave and Joanne were reliable and took the time to understand our needs.They were transparent and made us feel comfortable by answering all of our questions throughout the entire home buying process. They were very knowledgeable about the local market. They went above & beyond after purchasing our house, the following day we had some water come into the basement from the tropical storm. He was over bright and early with a wet vac to suck the water up and make sure we had a team come out to fix the drainage issue on the basement walkout."
-Paul Jogopulos, Client
"Dave and JoAnne have been the most professional Realtors we have ever worked with. They are truly in your corner and work very diligently throughout the entire homebuying process. Both are very keen with market insight and were extremely understanding of our family needs when searching for a home. I would highly recommend Dave and JoAnne at any given opportunity."
-Nick and Megan Delon, Client
"Dave and JoAnne were very helpful throughout the entire home selling / buying process. I highly recommend them for their experience and responsiveness."
-Kayla Sailer, Client
""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.""
-Karen Miller, Client
"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."
-George H, Client
"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! "
