Ed has been selling Real estate since that time, he's guided many people through the sometimes difficult, often stressful, but ultimately happy purchase or sale of a property. The best testimonial to his professionalism is the loyalty and trust that he engenders.


"Working with Ed was an absolute pleasure. From start to finish he guided us through every step of the process, from the details of moving to the contract negotiation.


I am 100% sure that he increased the selling price of our house tremendously through meticulous staging, targeted marketing and advice that was dead-on.


My husband and I felt completely confident in his experience and with the care and concern he showed for us through the (very) stressful experience of moving and selling. He never lost his patience or was too busy for our many questions and concerns. In fact the phrase "thank god for Ed" became a frequent mantra with us!"


Elizabeth Brewster & Damon Iacovelli, Portland, OR


"May I just take this time to say how amazing you and your team have been in assisting me in the sale of my home. The attention to detail, the assistance you offered and the way you handled an often-sticky situation were nothing less than amazing. You made a difficult situation not only bearable, but a pleasure. Many, many thanks for all you have done."


Justine Carpenter, Rehoboth Beach, DE


"We were very nervous first-time homebuyers who needed someone to guide us through the brutal DC market. Ed knew every corner of every part of DC and saved us from chasing after the wrong houses.


We wrote one contract—for exactly the house we wanted. We’ve already recommended him to friends and would never use anyone  but him in DC."


Jennifer Howard & Mark Trainer,Washington, DC


"Ed puts the "agent" back in "real estate agent." He is a super-sleuth when it came to hunting down the kind of homes we were looking for, educated us about the market, and we always felt that he was looking out for our best interests.


In the end, we decided we needed to save more money before we bought a house, and Ed was just as supportive then as when we were planning a Saturday's house-hunting. Ed is energetic, careful, knowledgeable, and a really pleasant guy to be around. That's why he'll be our agent when we hit the market again."


Jeff and Sarah Pojanowski, Washington, DC


"Ed has a crystal ball hidden away somewhere: he made money for me and saved it for me, with the same house.


He's who found it for me and helped me figure out the best way to buy it; he's who sold it for me, several years later, and both times, with perfect market timing. But way beyond the crystal ball and the market timing is this: if Ed says something, his word is good, and you can take that to the bank every time."


Boyd Davis, Charlotte, NC


"Anyone who can endure more than 20 visits to condos over 3 months with one "just moved to DC" customer at a relatively low price point and still remain patient and supportive must be a special Real Estate guy, and Ed is.


Fortunately that patience was rewarded when that same customer 9 years later came back and we sold the condo I finally choose back then in just 2 days of listing at a nifty profit. See, good things do happen to good people...and Ed is one of the best!"


Wayne Bernauer, Easton, MD


"When Gretchen and I decided to buy our first place we knew that we needed a seasoned professional. After meeting Ed, we knew we found our man.


With 16 years of experience in the DC market we knew Ed would find us a good deal in a great location at a price we could afford. His professionalism, friendliness and superb skills made our first house purchase easy and fun."


Gretchen Gill and Kelby Johnson, Washington, DC


"Ed is absolutely amazing and such a pro. He turned what could have been a stressful situation into a fun and profitable process. He took care of every detail and made me feel like I was his only client. I would never sell another property without him. Work with Ed if you can."


Dave Dogan, Washington, DC


"As a first-time home-buyer in 1995, Ed Downs walked me through every step of the process with patience and professionalism and humor. He was extremely knowledgeable about different areas of the city during my recent home search, and though we ultimately did not sell or buy (crazy market!)


Ed was again with my husband and me every step of the way.

I would highly recommend him (and do!) to homebuyers and sellers in this area."


Amy Fanning, Washington, DC


"As a first time fussy buyer with no money, I probably wasn't the ideal client for any realtor. Lucky for me I wasn't working with just any agent.


Ed patiently walked me through the purchasing process, helped me find the perfect home in an ideal location, AND made the entire experience easy and fun! Ed is the very best!"


Nancy Lumb, Bethesda, MD


"Looking for a house in a hot market isn't a lot of fun for a buyer or for a buyer's Realtor, but I can honestly say it was a pleasure to work with Ed. He was very patient, very knowledgeable and, not least important given how much time we spent together looking at houses last summer, very likeable.


Ed is certainly among the best Realtors we've ever worked with, and we would be pleased to work with him again."


Mark Kaprelian, Bethesda, MD


"If you want a full service realtor, talk to Ed Downs. Ed helped me through the buying process with patience, frank advice and --most importantly in my long search-- good humor.


When I was ready to sell a few years later, Ed helped with everything from staging to helping me through settlement from my new home in Hawaii. That's service! That's Ed!"


Scott Gossett, Honolulu, HI


"We interviewed several realtors and quickly came to the conclusion that Edward Downs was the only person that we were interested in partnering with to sell our home.


His knowledge of the market and our neighborhood as a part of that market were unmatched. Additionally, his experience in the industry allowed him to provide suggestions and guidance at each step of the selling process.


The entire process went smoothly, and we would highly recommend working with Ed Downs. He was fantastic!"


Daniel and Jennifer Boulton, Nashville, TN
