TESTIMONIALS

At the Bediz Group, our clients come first. It shows in the reviews we’ve received recently:

David and his group provided superior service in selling my home. David has a great eye for current buyer trends in DC, and was helpful from start to finish on the process of selling my home. David provided recommendations for both contractors and stagers to prep the house and was extremely flexible and confident in his execution.  The transaction went smooth and closed flawlessly. I truly believe that I would not have achieved the same results if I were to have used another agent. I will be using David and his team again when I sell my next property.” –Kevin B. 

David and his team offered a fantastic and unmatched level of service during our home buying experience. The team exceeded expectations and we ended up with a great deal on a great house, and closed ahead of schedule!–Joe & Val C. 

From the start, David was detail- oriented and prepared! After we contacted him, he came to our house with a marketing strategy in hand and was very patient and thorough in explaining his process. We had realistic (And high!) expectations for the sale of our home because he was honest in every interaction. We ended up taking his advice on everything, as resistant as we were to some things, and it really seemed to pay off in the end. After we chose an offer, we dealt primarily with Lindsay, but David was always available for our questions and concerns. Lindsay was also amazing! She was professional, courteous, and we really felt we had someone helping us as our closing date approached. Despite some difficulties with the title company prior to closing, Lindsay was very reassuring and advocated for us to make sure everything got done in time. Thank you to David, Lindsay, and the entire Bediz Group for your confidence, communication, and follow-through!” PJ & Sarah G. 

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. 

This was our first time selling a property so we were naturally apprehensive about the process. To make matters more challenging, we were selling a rental property while living several hundred miles away in another state. David and his team walked us through the whole process and handled everything for us….such that we never had to travel back to sell the property. He literally handled everything from interfacing with our tenants that were moving out, coordinating the prep work for selling the unit, marketing, and negotiation with the buyer. In one instance, he went through extraordinary effort, on my behalf, to have gas service restored to the unit as part of the home inspection process. I was especially impressed by how patient he was with me despite my insatiable need for details and hand holding through the process. We ended up selling our unit for full asking price which is a testament to David and his teams marketing prowess. David understands market factors and plans a strategy to maximize the return on your investment. I will definitely be recommending his firm to family and friends in the DC area!!Vijay & Stephanie D.

Choosing the Bediz Group was one of the best decisions we could have made. We attended their new home buyers training sessions where they explained the whole process. We scheduled our first meeting where we explained what we were looking for. David and his team helped us successfully buy our new place (helping us negotiate a very good deal), as well as to sell our place quickly. We found a place and made an offer within a week and also managed to sell our place within a week from the time it went on the market. We could not recommend the Bediz Group enough. They went above and beyond to make the process as easy as possible. We will definitely consult them again the next time we make the decision to buy or sell a place.Luiz A. & Ruan K.

David Bediz quickly assessed my needs and provided the support necessary to assist me through the process. Lindsay and Sha-Kayla took care of many details that saved me considerable time on a variety of task and along with David kept me well informed throughout the process. The 3D tour extraordinarily illustrated the features, layout, and feel of the apartment. The brochure was attractively and professionally produced. All aspects of the pre-listing, listing, and offer evaluations were professionally accomplished and all services were of the highest quality. This was my second opportunity to work with the David Bediz Group and I highly recommend his services to anyone planning a real estate transaction in the Washington, D.C. area.Ken B.

My realtor, Jesse Oakley, was awesome! From day one he was really responsive to my needs and really patient given my busy schedule. As a first time home buyer, he walked me through each step of the process and helped alleviate my concerns. In the end I walked away with an amazing new condo and a great friend!” Jasmine O.

This is my fourth transaction with the Bediz group and both Brock and David were responsive, knowledgeable, and most of all understanding when it came to my many questions surrounding the various aspects of the process. At no point did I feel pressured, or like I was trying to be convinced into anything I wasn’t 100% comfortable with. From start to finish of the selling of my current home and my acquisition of my new home I felt well represented and supported!”  Ben T.

“I had a very good experience with the Bediz Group. The entire process from contract to close was very smooth. There were no issues! I would recommend the Bediz Group and will use them again in a future transaction.” Chad T.

We yet again had a fantastic experience working with the Bediz group to buy a home and sell our condo. David Bediz put us at ease throughout the entire process. He ensured that we understood each step as we proceeded. He guided us with his incredible knowledge of real estate and consistently advised us as we made difficult decisions. He did all of this in a very short amount of time as we sold our house and bought a new house all within 45 days! We have already recommended the Bediz Group to friends and family. They will always be our first choice in DC!” Taylor & Maddy W.

“We are immensely pleased with the Bediz Group after working with them to sell our property. The home was part of an estate, which added a layer of complexity that the team handled with ease. We’d attempted to sell the property previously, but were unsuccessful. That information didn’t even phase the Bediz group as they carefully crafted a marketing and pricing strategy that exceeded our expectations. From staging to landscaping, the team made excellent recommendations to position the property in the best light. The promo video and materials were stunning and attracted the prospective buyers we needed at the open house. We received an offer for asking price just after open house and were at settlement one month later!!! I most appreciated the responsiveness and openness from the The Bediz group. Selling and buying a house is a stressful time, and we always felt included in the process. Someone was always reachable day or night, always friendly, and eager to help. Thanks so much to the Bediz Group for their exemplary service!” –Stacia W. 

“Bediz Group was very easy to communicate with.  Everything was straightforward and went off without a hitch.  I always felt like I was in great hands.  I most especially appreciate the group’s ability to handle everything electronically (email, SMS, docusign, etc.)” –Tyler C. 

“As first-time buyers, my wife and I were initially underwhelmed after meeting with several real estate agents in Washington.  They didn’t listen carefully, weren’t zealous advocates for our best interests, and, most disappointingly, didn’t operate with the same passion for quality and integrity that we both try to bring to our own professional work.

Then we received a referral to David Bediz.  David is a master of his craft.  He has a razor-sharp intellect, is a shrewd negotiator, and, most importantly, is an absolute pleasure to work with.  After 10 months of hard work, David was instrumental in helping us buy an off-market property in a deal that tried our collective patience on multiple occasions.  He made follow-up phone calls without being asked.  He fought tirelessly and creatively for the best deal terms without being prodded.  He gave us referrals to a similarly outstanding lawyer and lender (who were also instrumental to the transaction).  He didn’t bat an eye when my wife and I walked away from two earlier (and easier) deals, delaying his commission indefinitely. In other words, David is a consummate professional, focused on long-term relationships over short-term gains, and always handling himself with class.

I don’t write a lot of online reviews, but after being so thoroughly impressed with David and so thrilled with the end result of our work together, I felt I owed it to him, his delightful colleagues, and the rest of the world to sing the Bediz Group’s praises from the rooftops and to help the whole team stand out in a crowded field.” –Jason L.

“David and his team are in a class of their own when it comes to client focus, creativity, and dedication to seeing a deal through. David personally made a generous investment in our success, in terms of time, effort and advice, and tirelessly worked toward a successful negotiation outcome with a difficult seller.  His commitment to excellence is also reflected in his team members, who are responsive, professional and think many steps ahead while helping their clients navigate the highly competitive Washington, DC real estate market.” –B.B. 

“Phillip explained the whole process to us at the beginning, gave us realistic expectations for our budget, and never got tired of showing us (many many) houses, even though we ended up buying a house we saw on the first day. When another family expressed interest in the house, Phillip made sure we knew right away and helped us come up with a competitive offer that allowed us to purchase our new home.” Kate & Chris. H.

“Jesse and the team were amazing. We had some special requirements, to say the least, and they were more than up to the task. Great people! Great service!” Andrew M. & Brigit H.

“I wish I could give more stars for the negotiation skills.  We received about $20,000 above asking AND got a sizable rent-back for free thanks to David (something we wouldn’t even have thought of).  His expertise was great, especially during the offer negotiation, which resulted in multiple contingencies being negotiated away, to enable a more seamless and sure sell.  Both parties were happy with the deal.  We’re extremely happy with David and his team.” –Tom N. & Joseph H. 

“My experience with Bediz Group was exemplary.  As a first-time homebuyer, I needed a lot of handholding and had innumerable questions — and my Bediz Group agent was there every step of the way!” –Charles C. 

“My experience with the Bediz Group was exemplary. From the moment I was referred to David by a friend (who had a similarly positive experience), I felt completely taken care of by knowledgeable, friendly, and well-seasoned professionals. David and Phillip worked tirelessly to help me find the perfect home, and even when an unforeseeable (and harrowing) wrench was thrown into the mix, they both calmly helped me day and night to remedy the situation. I felt as if I was their number one priority throughout the process, which was immeasurably comforting as a first time homebuyer with loads of questions. I couldn’t ask for a better group of agents, and when it comes time to sell my home, I will absolutely go back to them. I highly recommend them for any DC buyer or seller.” Jojo R.

“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.

Throughout the process of selling my home, my experience with the Bediz Group was exceptional. My primary dealings were with David and Lindsay, who were unfailingly professional and courteous. Carole E.

David Bediz was most helpful keeping me informed through the initial contacts through the closing. He is consistently a pleasure to work with. His staff were excellent and pleasant to communicate with.” Ken B.

“David Bediz and Phillip Ray (Bediz Group, LLC) are platinum realtors who consistently go the extra mile to protect their client’s interests.  We recently completed an arduous process of selling our old home and purchasing a new home which would have been impossible without the assistance of David and Phillip.  They know the city’s real estate market and have relationships with all the top players in the business.  If you’re looking to sell or buy in the district and protect your investment, give them a call.  You will not only gain a top realtor, but a friend you can count on.” Jesus Q.

“We had a friend recommend David Bediz as a Realtor and we couldn’t have been happier with him!  He was very patient, helpful, and available at all hours.  The house we now purchased we went to see on a Saturday and he worked with us until late in the night to submit the offer and worked for the next week, at times late at night to get an offer we finally accepted.  The rest of his office was extremely polite and nice and always made us feel welcoming.  Lindsay who also supports David was extremely polite and helpful also!  More over purchasing a home is no easy process and we always felt David had our best interest in mind and was always looking out for us.  David was extremely forward and fought for us and in the end we got a great deal and a great house!  We highly recommend David as your Realtor, especially in a city where realtor’s are abundant. Having a Realtor with high recommendations is a must.” –Shawn F.

“Our agent, Christie Abramovic, was a pleasure to work with at all times.  She was always available to answer questions and consistently reponded very promptly to any emails that I sent her way.  Whether she was out showing us a house or helping us to navigation the endless stack of paperwork, she was always cheerful and exceedingly helpful.  Her professionalism and industry knowledge gave us the confidence we needed to move forward with the purchase of our first home.” Beth W.

“I used the Dwight & David Group both in selling a property and buying a new one. Throughout every step of the way their professionals provided me with wonderful advice and insight and guided me through both processes in an expert manner. I would highly recommend this group as a resource in both buying and selling properties!!”  Ben T.

“Our sincere thanks for your professional expertise and personal assistance that enabled us to easily proceed through a condo renovation to listing and open house to a well-executed marketing plan to a concluding quick sale within 20 days of listing at 98% of our asking price. We were delighted with those results and are most appreciative of all you did for us. Throughout the renovation and marketing of our condo, you were very responsive to phone calls and Emails and it was a pleasure to work with you.”            –Sidney & Rachel S.

“Very impressed and grateful to use them. Our realtor provided us very detailed information and step-by-step of how the entire process will unfold. He was also vey approachable and accessible to all the questions that arise. I couldn’t ask for a better experience. Having worked with few other agents in the past, this is hands down top-notch service. I already recommended them to a good friend of mine.”  Diego F.

“We bought our home in Mount Pleasant with Dwight and David. Very impressed with the service throughout the entire process. The team of agents really worked well together and we were satisfied with the entire team.” –Adam P. & Peng W.

“Dwight & David are great. They are on the ball and really responsive. I’ve used them before and will use them again… thanks, guys!” –Jennifer B.

“…I want to thank both of you again wholeheartedly for your assistance to us as first-time buyers in this country! It could have been a stressful process, but thanks to you it has been a most pleasant one. We are genuinely grateful, and hope to keep being in touch.” –Nicolas V. & Indhira S.

“We highly recommend Dwight Mortensen and David Bediz of the Dwight and David Group. We have used Dwight and David on three occasions now, 2 home purchases and 1 home sale in DC proper all between 2011 and 2013, and could not be more pleased. Both my husband and I lived in DC proper for 8 years before buying, and found Dwight and David accommodating as we researched all of over options in the Metro DC area. They kept their cool through what we found to be a stressful process of selling our apartment and buying our new home. It helped us stay calm through bidding wars, drowning in mortgage paperwork, and juggling our full time jobs…pregnant and with a 16 month old in tow.  They prepped our apartment to look its best as we put it on the market (sold in 4 days in mid winter- off season). They offered ideas for new homes and neighborhoods, as well as promptly followed up on any new find we wanted to investigate further scrolling around Redfin and Trullia.  Working them was fun, professional, and enjoyable. They are prompt, positive, easy going and have a hard work ethic. You won’t be disappointed.” –Mike & Lissy M.

“Dwight and David have completed three deals for me in the past two years. These guys are sharp.  For sellers, they come in with a well-prepared portfolio and give a polished, no-pressure presentation. Go with them, and they’ll astound you with their eye for staging. They’ve got a storehouse of furniture, art and rugs, and they know how to use them. If the guys ever decide to branch out and become interior designers, too, I’m ready to hire them to decorate my new digs.

If David and Dwight’s intention is to astound buyers with their marketing materials, they succeed. Their brochures and mailers are absolutely gorgeous, with magazine-ready photo spreads. No last-minute photocopies with these guys. Their generous brochures are printed on heavy, top of the line card stock, ready to wow other agents and potential buyers.

On the buyer side, David and Dwight made themselves available to show my partner and me as many properties as we wanted to see, as many times as we wanted – always with a smile and no hint of pressure to make a decision. When we found a house we liked, they put together an offer that enabled us to beat out other bids and still get the property under appraised value.

I highly recommend David and Dwight. Give them an opportunity to show you what they do, and you’ll see for yourself – they are topnotch agents who are knowledgeable, talented, and a pleasure to work with.” –Kyle W.
