What First Time Home Buyers Are Saying


Very kind and takes the time to help you understand all of the paperwork.

Taylor Johnson

I couldn’t imagine a smoother home buying experience. As first time buyers we didn’t know much about mortgages, paperwork, or what to look for in a house, but Dan made everything very easy. He walked us through the steps we needed to take and stayed in constant communication with us the whole time. He’s a sharp guy who always answered our calls and emailed back within a matter of minutes, which allowed us to quickly move forward and close on our favorite house! The combination of his professionalism, industry experience, and moral support gave us an invaluable sense of reassurance throughout the whole process.

Dan Thiewes goes above and beyond and I recommend him to anyone looking for best-in-class service.

Ben Jordan and Jess Jewell

Dan is one of the best out there! He helped us buy our new home at a steal. He is very responsive and thorough. He truly does care for each of his clients. After looking at a few homes, he would tell us what was good and bad about each one. Guiding us to buy the perfect home. Hands down would recommend him to any and all of my friends looking to buy or sell their home.

Monica and Andy Swiger

The best part of your service was your being direct and truthful about the whole process. You were always willing to answer all our questions and explain things when we needed. Keeping us informed and updated about the process made us feel comfortable. Your were absolutely great!! We’ll definitely be using you again in the future.

Ben and Sarah Carr

Dan we can’t thank you enough for all that you have done! We know its not officially all over with yet but you have been absolutely stellar through all of this. We drag you out to the country, we show you crappy houses, we have no idea what we are doing, we have outlandish needs and price ranged… but you stuck it out with us, and helped us find this great house.

Kaan Canturk and Sylvia Plaugher

First, Andy and I want to thank you SOOO much for your help in locating a house for us. Though it was our first buy I think it went over very smoothly! So thank you!!!

Korrin and Andy Glasscock

Dan knows the area extremely well and definitely takes a comprehensive approach to making sure you choose the right home– especially from a quality builder. He always thinks ahead and is ready tackle anything that come up on your behalf. Dan is extremely professional and responsive to messages. An excellent choice!

Fabricio and Joshua Fernandez-Reid

You were always there and so supportive.

Jessica Wessell

We bought our first home with Dan. His knowledge and ability to clearly explain and articulate the home buying process is fantastic. He helped in the negotiating process and was always very responsive. His loan officer he recommended was just as quick to respond as well. We highly recommend Dan, no matter your home buying situation!

Eric and Lindsay Blanks

I’ve used Dan both to purchase a house in Northern Virginia and then sell the same house a few years later. He knows a great deal about the local housing market, is very easy to reach, and won’t try to lead you on or go for a bad deal. I, personally, greatly appreciated Dan’s approach of telling you the things he does not like about a house when you are viewing it. It was refreshing and helpful to get honest feedback about the houses I was looking at and it made choosing my eventual home very easy. When I sold the home a few years later, Dan did a very good job of marketing it and we had accepted an offer less than a month after putting it on the market. I highly recommend Dan, and I know you’ll enjoy working with him.

Jason Troiano

We knew very little about the process, and will always be grateful to you for your kind and patient guidance from our initial decision to buy the house right through the closing. Your attitude was always more like that of a friend that an agent.

Angela J. and Vu H. Nguyen

I am grateful to you for your expertise and your patience as you guided through the process. I know that you always had my best interests in mind as you helped me select the condominium that was right for me. I know that you played a big role in making this often hectic experience, a smooth and easy one.

Emily Baker

Working with you made the whole process go extremely smooth. As first time home buyers, we needed a lot of hand holding an you were there for us every step of the way.

David and Nancy Jones

We thought for sure that our endless first time home buyer questions and curiosity about the three other counties would push your patience over the edge. But you remained receptive, helpful, and always available. You helped us look where we wanted, you explained everything in detail so that we really understood, and most importantly, you let us take our time.

Bill and Lesley Poirier

You truly helped us become homeowners, and we are especially grateful for you patience and willingness to answer all of our many questions. As novices, we had a lot to learn, and it was very reassuring to know that you were glad to take the time to explain things that veteran home-buyers no doubt already know about.

William Triplett

I believe your experience, knowledge of the complicated VHDA/FHA financing program helped to make my first home purchase hassle-free and affordable.

Joseph N. Nichols

Dan, —-You Rock!!! You will be recommended by me to everyone! We really liked that you were always available and always responsive. You completely understood our desires, needs and wants, as well as knowing about resale opportunities and concerns. Your frank discussions were great. The recommendation of home inspector was invaluable.

Rick Osial

Extremely responsive to our questions and needs. Patience when we weren’t sure if, when, where, or how much. Knowledge and a willingness to find out instead of feeding us a line. Honesty and integrity. Being our first purchase, Dan made sure to educate us as best he could. No pressure.

Gregg and Jennie Rubright

We were very picky shoppers, we appreciate your patience and evaluation of our needs that brought us to our perfect home. We appreciate the low pressure.

Greg and Lisa Seward

We relied on you, Dan, for your guidance and for explaining every step of this process. And you never let us down! It is obvious that you understand a lot about the Northern Virginia market and are extremely familiar with dealing with home builders. We knew we had a good Realtor when you took time to “translate” every detail of the purchase contract into “laymen’s” terms so that we understood what we were investing in.

Rich and Elizabeth Lupfer

Your service was prompt and you are to the point.

Amy Wong

I truly thank God for choosing you to be a blessing to me in the process of buying my home. Your patient and kind, no pressure sales spirit truly meant a lot to me; as well as your willingness to stick with me until the end.

Veronica M. Terry

Thank you for your patience and friendship in guiding Mercedes and Brian through a scary but exciting time in their lives. We were concerned they were jumping impulsively into a situation they didn’t fully understand and wanted them to have some professional advice. You supplied that and more. You became a friend and they think very highly of you. Mercedes says you are “such a gentleman” and clearly explained every detail as they progressed to the happy conclusion of buying their first house. I know they thank you and we do too!

Sunnie Stubbs (on behalf of Brian Palmer and Mercedes Davila)

Without telling us what we “had” to do, you gave us all the information we needed to make an informed decision regarding whether to make an offer, what to offer, etc. Also, we never felt any pressure during the whole process. You always put our interests and desires at the forefront. We didn’t look at you as a salesperson but as a very knowledgeable consultant.

Dan, you made all aspects of the process almost stress free and were able to make us feel at ease during a very tumultuous time. We feel you were a Godsend for us!

Hugo and Renee Rossi

Your knowledge was substantial. We appreciated your willingness to meet at any hour of the day. You went out of your way to ask important questions of the seller that we wouldn’t think to ask.

Pete and Stacey Rothfuss

We liked your attention to detail, responsiveness to our questions and requests. You are efficient and knowledgeable in your field. You were and are very pleasant to work with during are search for our home and our investment property. We will definitely refer you to our friends when the time comes.

Ali Soleimani and Remona Tabib

I’d like to express my sincere appreciation for your advice, assistance, education and service over the last two months. You did an outstanding job of navigating the insane “seller’s market” in the blossoming Dulles Technology Corridor, and went far beyond the call of duty in order to get me into a home I’m proud to own.

Your conduct with other agents, sellers, service providers, and me is and was always professional and courteous. You maintain integrity even when other parties may not, and in my opinion, truly work for your clients’ best interest. I’m amazed at your ability to maintain calm despite stressful circumstances, a very busy schedule and an insane market. Even though I was a first time homebuyer, your attention to detail, advice and experience allowed me to remain confident throughout the entire process. Your accessibility beyond traditional office hours clearly demonstrates dedication to your clients. Thanks again for your outstanding service.

Doug Pascale

We would like to thank you again for your great job. Buying a house for the first time is a taxing experience. When one is in a hurry, it is even more so. We were lucky, however, to meet a wonderful agent like you; very thorough, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We are grateful to you for the great help you were to us and certainly will recommend you to our friends.

Boris Veytsman and Maria Shmilevich

Dan was very professional, courteous and personable. He was on top of every situation, keeping us informed on every aspect of the process before it even happened. We even got comments from the sellers on how great Dan was.

Christina Coffman and Ben Nuding

You explained everything about the home buying process in detail to me until I understood what was going on.

Cathy Kearney

Ironically, form beginning to end, the process was not stressful at all – because of our experienced Realtor, Dan Thiewes. You put our needs #1. Dan was very helpful, sincere, cautious & pointed out things for us to look out for. Since we were first time home buyers. You made our first time buy pleasant and stress free. Don’t change a thing! I have already recommended your services to others.

Sunah Kim and John Wong

You were always prompt and efficient.

J. Kevin Clarke Jr.

Thank you for all the hard work you did for us to buy a house. We really appreciate it. We really couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks from all of us.

We liked that you showed us the good and the bad things to look for in a new house.

Cathy Kearney

You love your job and it shows.

Mike Wong

You kept us informed at all times.

Jon and Nicki Halterman-Mitchell

We like everything about your service. We couldn’t have found a better Realtor. We particularly appreciated your availability – the fact that if we had questions we could call you at work or home. You really seemed to care about us! Thanks you so much.

Robert and Susan Dakin

You were always very accessible and offered a lot of advice. The advice given in the homes was outstanding. Thanks!

David Keller

You have a great attitude! You are very helpful and give good advice. We are so thankful for everything, as you went above and beyond. We appreciated you showing us what would need to be done to the house and that you didn’t hide anything about the houses that we saw. We would not change anything about our experience because everything went well and very smoothly. We will definitely work with you again for our next home.

Andreina Cardenas and Nestor Orellana

I liked that I could completely trust you to look out for my best interests as a buyer, give detailed and thorough advice and explanations of the process. I particularly appreciated your knowledge of what to look for, what to be concerned/not concerned about; vigilant on my behalf yet friendly, laid back manner made it less stressful. Thank you again for all of your time, efforts, and patience in helping me through this process. You?ve helped to make it a great experience!

Adam Swiger

We had a wonderful experience working with you.

Justin and Ashley Testa

We found you to be professional, courteous and humorous. We appreciated your pointing out the good and bad of every home we saw. We liked the fact that you didn?t try to talk us into every home we saw. You were honest with your opinions.

Marc Hooks and Wanetta Morgan-Hooks
