Todd represented us for the sale of our condo and purchase of a new home. With his expert knowledge of the market, we sold our condo quickly (in just one weekend) and he led us to our dream home (an off market opportunity). Todd’s professionalism, responsiveness, equanimity, and stellar reputation all proved immensely beneficial as we navigated what turned out to be a particularly taxing and stressful transaction on the purchase side. What we most appreciated about Todd was his integrity and unwavering commitment to our best interests– especially in the many moments of the purchase process when it would have been expedient for another realtor in his shoes to encourage us to compromise our interests for the sake of the deal. In sum, our reference for Todd Vassar conveys with the most glowing of endorsements. It was a pleasure working with him.

We could not have asked for a better experience working with Todd. Even before we started actively looking, he kept us informed of high potential listings and never pressured us to get started on the process until we were ready. We quickly found our dream home and Todd masterfully negotiated through the entire process. He got us a great deal on the sale price and several large asks that came out of the inspection process. He always had our best interest in mind and always gave us sound advice, even at times when the deal could have fallen apart. We had several issues during the inspection and he fully led the process to get estimates from reputable contractors with very short turnaround times. His support team was also incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and made a fairly complicated deal a breeze for us as the buyers.

Todd Vassar was an absolute pleasure to work with and got us our dream home for much less than we were expecting to pay. Don’t hesitate to use him, especially if you are looking in the Arlington/Alexandria area. Not only did he get us our dream home, but he also sold our condo – both buying and selling with Todd went flawlessly and he was able to help us navigate the timing perfectly so we had two weeks overlap between properties which allowed us to get the new house painted and floors refinished before we moved in (this was a huge win for us). One area that really impressed my husband and I were his pricing and negotiation skills – he saved us thousands of dollars by being tough but fair, and really pushed to get us the BEST possible sales price. He’s all around awesome – go with Todd!

Todd is a really fantastic realtor. He’s honest, helpful, efficient and patient. I greatly appreciated that he gave me honest advice on each property we saw and seemed to genuinely be motivated by my best interests. When I found a property I wanted, Todd was amazing at helping me make the winning offer. Todd and Felicia were both incredibly patient during what was quite a complicated closing process. I’m very excited by my new property and definitely think I would not have got it without Todd!

Todd is an exemplary agent, professional, responsible, highly companionable and altogether trustworthy. Todd understood at once what we wanted and never wasted our time showing us properties that didn’t meet our criteria. Unlike agents we’ve encountered at other firms, Todd made us feel confident he was out to help us, not to serve any interests of his own. We ended up choosing a house that involved some challenging negotiations, which Todd handled with uncommon patience and skill to bring a satisfying close. Todd would be the first agent I’d recommend to anyone looking for a home in the District.
