Wow! I can't say enough nice things about Casey.
I'm a first time homebuyer/investor who purchased from outside of the country (I work abroad) on a very quick timeline while in the DC Metro area where I grew up.
Despite the time difference, need for late calls, and packed schedule for seeing apartments, Casey was an unflappable and encyclopedic source of information and guidance throughout the process. She knows the DC market extremely well, and helped me with literal months of preparation for a marathon 2 day search on a weekend.
I was especially impressed with Casey's knack for figuring out what kind of a property met my goals - I never felt pressured, but did feel guided and confident during our search.
Simply put, Casey went above and beyond in dealing with a client in a challenging situation. Kudos. Would totally hire her again and recommend her to anyone who asks. Thanks Casey!
We contacted Casey about a year in advance of moving to NoVa so we could get some initial first-home-purchasing guidance. She quickly set up two automated MLS searches for us, and we worked on narrowing down our preferences. In the meantime, she recommended a mortgage consultant, whom we ended up using to finance our mortgage. When we finally moved back and had time to visit houses, she was extremely responsive and we collaborated well. When we found the right house, she wisely advised us to jump on it, and walked us through what would become our offer. a few days our offer was accepted and she and Kristen helped guide us through all of the necessary steps. We were also satisfied with the title company and the home inspector she recommended. The biggest purchase of our lives could not have gone more smoothly. We are very happy customers and without reservation recommend Casey and Kristen.Less
Casey is an amazing agent. She went above and beyond to help my family make a big move from California to Washington D.C. She helped us hone our needs and desires from afar, and on our first house-hunting visit with kids in tow, she helped us find our new home. Casey advised us through a long closing by recommending wonderful contractors, painters, and others to work with, and even gave advice on possible remodeling ideas (she's an amazing remodeler herself!). I can't say enough great things about Casey. If you want to find your dream home with as little stress as possible, work with Casey.
With Casey's help and guidance, my partner and I bought our first home this summer.
Casey and Kristen helped us find the right house and then made every step of the home-buying process easier and a bit less complicated. They were responsive and engaged throughout, they helped us navigate the inspection, financing and other last-minute needs. We highly recommend them.
Casey Aboulafia and Kristen Johnson from Compass were fantastic from the very beginning. They were very fast, professional, knowledgeable, and kind. Casey knows the DC area well, and worked very diligently to show me properties. She was on top of every detail from start to finish, and ended up saving me quite a bit of money by negotiating many key features of the contract. She has very good working relationships with many other realtors and lenders in the area. She also does a great job of explaining the bewildering process of home buying in a way a first-time home-buyer can understand. I wholeheartedly recommend going with Casey - she's great!
As a seller, my expectations of a realtor are simple: sell for the highest price possible, sell quickly, and make the process as seemless / painless as it can be. Casey and Kristen did exactly that in spades. My rental property went under contract over asking price in two days, for the highest price per square foot in the building. The property needed some work done and staging, but I had moved cross country. They handled everything for me without me having to do anything except sign some paperwork (at a great cost for the contractor and staging).
That’s how a home sale should go. You can’t go wrong with this team.
Casey was great to work with. We were buying an investment property and she was knowledgeable about looking at places from the perspective of a tenant. She was also very hands on and walked us through every step of the pr
They say home buying can be painful and not for the faint of heart, especially in a market as crazy as DC. However, with Casey, our experience was "What pain?" She knew exactly what we wanted and only showed us properties that we would like. While she was very hands off and never pressured us, she made sure to give us the nudge needed to get the house we are in! With her experience and knowledge of the market, she ensured that we made the right offer that ultimately was successful. She explained every step from all the details in the contract to negotiating items during our walkthrough. And Kristen would be there to pick up in case Casey was tied up elsewhere. They were the perfect team and the best! Can't recommend them highly enough.
I worked with Casey to purchase a new home and couldnt have imagined a better experience. She guided me throuh every step from explaining all details in the contract to negotiating final items during our walkthru. She knew and explained all of the pros and cons of each neighborhood we were interested in and never once pressured us to make an offer. As a repeat client, I have no doubt that I would use Casey again for any future transactions. The fact that she always tell me to rent my current investment property instead of selling it just shows that she truly looks out for her clients best interests and not her own.
I have now bought two homes in DC with Casey and wouldn't work with anyone else! Not only is her local knowledge unbeatable since she is born and raised in the area, but she really tunes in to her clients and works with you to find exactly the type of place you are looking for for where you are in life and budget. Perhaps my favorite thing about working with Casey is that when you are looking at homes with her, she doesn't try to sell on anything. She walks into a home with you and gives it a very honest and thoughtful analysis and will share what is cool about the home but also what needs repair/updating, what that project would entail, what spaces she thinks are weird, etc. Working with her is like going house hunting with a friend that has your best interest in mind - just an incredibly experienced and expert friend! I highly recommend Casey and her team, they are the best.
