Client Testimonials:

It was an absolute pleasure working with Jesse to purchase my first home. He has a great personality, explained things clearly, and maintained great communication with me during the entire process. He demonstrated extensive knowledge of the real estate industry and provided wonderful advice. I really felt comfortable relying on his suggestions. The entire process was smooth and he was there at every step. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to buy/sell their home.” -Eugenia R.

“Jesse was amazing. We had a deal fall through before we closed on new home.  He was our advocate throughout the entire process and really went above and beyond to help us understand the process. Our deal was a stressful one, but Jesse made it much better. We really appreciate all that he did for us and can’t wait to recommend him to our friends.” -Bryan & Leah E.

I worked with Jesse Oakley & Joe Hudson of the Bediz Group and am now a very happy homeowner in DC. I have never lived in DC so wasn’t knowledgeable about all the neighborhoods and how prices changed from area to area and they helped walk me through the learning process. They were patient,  encouraging and so very in the know about everything we looked at that I knew I was in great hands. They even managed to find me an off market property so you get what you pay for and I got the best!” – Tina D. 

We bought our beautiful new home sight-unseen from Mozambique! A fairly unusual circumstance indeed. But Jesse was amazing and made the process easy and relatively stress free. And he’s STILL helping us prepare the house for our arrival in late December. We can’t thank him enough!” -Andrew M. & Brigit H.

“From start to finish, the process of buying our first home went much smoother than we could have ever expected with the help of the Bediz Group. Working with Jesse Oakley and David Bediz was comfortable and they made complicated information easy to understand. Our needs were put first before anything else through every step – from home search, to loan, to the offer, negotiations, and closure. The Bediz Group had and continues to have our backs.” -David & Maria W.

“Jesse is a great person and an honest, hard working agent.  Really pleased to have him as my real estate agent.” -Bahman A.

“I had a fantastic experience. I came into the process as a first-time buyer, not really knowing much about the process. Jesse was great at explaining everything in detail, and took the time to make sure I knew exactly what was going on. He was very responsive and willing to answer any questions I had. Looking back, I learned so much about the home buying process.” -Christopher L.

“Jesse is very knowledgeable about the DC real estate market, and he has been very patient about discussing different options and showing a wide variety of properties to give us the best sense of what is available on the market. He is also very honest and doesn’t try to pressure you into a transaction; he won’t hesitate to suggest that you should keep looking for the best fit.” -Faris G. 

Jesse did an excellent job of meeting my demanding and limited scheduling requirements and of immersing me in the neighborhoods in which I was looking.” – Devon E.

I had a great experience. Jesse made buying a condo from Afghanistan very easy.” -Kevin F.
