  • Seller

    I recently sold my condo through Steve. The condo sold within a few weeks. He was fantastic throughout the entire process, including managing the contractor who did some renovations to the kitchen and bath. He is extremely responsive and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Steve.
  • Seller

    I was very impressed by how thorough Joshua was in dealing with every aspect of the rental. Would love to work with him again. Josh provided information and feedback in a timely manner and overall he was the best rental agent we have worked with (ever).
  • Buyer

    We have just recently engaged Josh as our property manager, and our initial experiences have been positive. Josh relates well to customers. No task is one too many or too challenging. Our house was rented within two days. Accounting is organized and easily accessed. I recommend Josh without reservation.
  • Seller

    Josh has helped us twice to turn over our house for rent. He is proactive, personable, has integrity and deals with both sides of the transaction (owner and renter) in a respectful and transparent manner. I have already recommended him to one friend and would not hesitate to do so again.
  • Seller

    We were very unsure about the procedures for buying and selling. Steve patiently guided us through each step, thoroughly explaining, and making recommendations for each. He promptly responded to every text and email, met with our odd schedule demands, helped us negotiate the ins and outs of the finances, and calmed our fears. I can't recommend him highly enough
  • Buyer

    Steve Withrow was very patient and responsive through our home buying process. He took the time to explain all of the intricacies and made it possible for us to buy our dream home. I know a lot of real estate agents, but I only recommend Steve to people I know who are buying and selling homes in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia.
  • Buyer

    I couldn't have asked for a better experience. This is the third transaction I've worked on with Steve (two home purchases and one home sale), and each and every time he has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I've already recommended him to a few of my neighbors who are in the market for new homes, and I certainly plan to contact with Steve again for any future real estate needs.
  • Buyer

    We had a pleasant experience buying our first home with Steve's help. He was able to provide a lot of advice on the different types of houses and neighborhoods we were considering. I didn't feel pushed into buying anything, and he was patient in helping us find the right fit for our needs. He walked us through every step of the process and made the house buying process simple.
  • Buyer

    Steve is the only way to go if you want an Agent. He sold our condo in a day. We found a great new place and our bid was accepted right away. Buying and selling is a stressful situation. Steve was great, he gets back to you right away, responded to any questions you have and really makes this process a lot less mentally stressful. You won't regret going with Steve.

  • Seller

    Steve was a tremendous help throughout this entire process. As a first-time home buyer, Steve walked through every step with you and made such a possibly stressful process much easier. He worked non-stop to find the best home and was extremely courteous and professional. I would highly recommend Steve to any person needing assistance in real estate.
  • Buyer

    I feel extremely lucky to have had Steve Withrow as my agent. He listened to what I wanted in a townhouse and found it. He kept within my price range and never pushed to go above it. I was happy with the home inspector he recommended also. I don't believe there was anything else he could have done for me. Everything went smoothly and I was in my townhouse 6 weeks after the contract was accepted.
  • Buyer

    Josh has my highest possible recommendation. He took our 1930’s house, which was in great need of updating, and had all the work done while we were busy driving cross-country with our dog. He texted us pictures as the work progressed and by the time we were settling into our new home he was finishing up and and checking the credit history of a prospective tenant. The process was completely seamless and we relaxed knowing that our property was in very good hands. And lastly, Josh is a great pleasure to work with he is kind, respectful, funny and he is so competent. I can’t possibly recommend him more highly.
  • Buyer

    Steve met with my wife and myself a year before we even began our real pursuit of purchasing our first home. He knew we were just gathering information at the time but treated us as if we were ready to start shopping right away. When it came time to start looking he picked up right where he left off and was calling us with homes to look at almost the next day. He helped us find the perfect home at an extremely stressful time and has continued to answer all of my questions whenever I have them even after we moved into our home. He is the only person my wife and I want to work with in the future.
  • Buyer

    Steve was instrumental in the absolute success of finding us the perfect home in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC. We were coming from Chicago, had a narrow window of two days to find a home. We communicated with Steve prior to our arrival on the key components we wanted for our new home. Simply stated, Steve took us right to what we were hoping to find, with ease and comfort. He also gave us much needed guidance on how to buy a brand new home, which we quickly learned from Steve requires a few different levels of understanding than buying an existing home. His ethics were, and are, top notch. He could have made a few extra dollars on our purchase, and we would have known non-the-wiser, but instead he gave us the needed guidance to negotiate correctly with the builder. You don't see that too often these days. He was also a key component to the closing process, as we were back in Chicago preparing for the movers to begin their process as well. The whole process was flawless on every level, and Steve was the key to it all. No wasting of precious time, no missed communication or confusion. You tell Steve what you want, and he will guide you to it. He is a real professional, and at these prices to live in Washington, DC, you want a Pro to guide you through the maze. I would recommend Steve to not only my friends, but to my family as well.
  • Seller

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Steve Withrow. He knows his stuff. He has exactly the right mix of expertise and humor to help his clients navigate the stormy waters of packing up a lifetime of memories (and stuff) while getting a house ready to sell. Steve handles his business with the utmost integrity, and I trust him completely. He helped me buy my last house in Silver Spring, MD, and then helped me sell that house six years later. Even though I was moving at a tough time of year (mid-November), Steve's marketing expertise got the house sold in less than 10 days--at the full asking price. That was in 2014. In spring 2016, Steve helped my partner sell his house, also in Silver Spring. He found terrific work crews to refinish floors, paint, and clear out the things we were leaving behind. He recommended only the work that was essential to market the house, and found contractors to get it done at a fair price. He had all this done in less than a month and was able to get the house on the market for the spring home-buying season. The house went on the market on a Friday. By Monday morning, my partner had 10 offers, all of them at more than the asking price. I have already recommended Steve to friends, and would do so again without hesitation. He is the best.
  • Buyer

    Buying and selling a home can be extremely stressful. We started and stopped the process several times over the past few years, but recently made the decision to just do it. We wanted a fresh start and contacted Steve. We told him how picky we were and to have patience with us, and that he did. The entire process went so smoothly and we are now in our dream home. It was an absolute pleasure working with Steve. Steve was patient and answered every question we had. He was very knowledgeable and honest with his opinions. We had a condo to sell and were looking for a single family home. We were worried about buying a new home first and being stuck with 2 mortgages. Steve knew the market and assured us it was the right move. We also refused to sell the condo until we knew where we were going so it was very stressful. Once we found our dream home, Steve helped us every step of the way through the process, and helped get us in touch with contractors to help get our condo ready to sell. Once listed our condo was under contract in less than 48 hours. Steve never pressured us or tried to show us homes above our stated price range. Also, he was prompt in replying at any time of the day or evening to any questions or concerns we had. As this was a very stressful time, he always had the answers and put us at ease. It was a real pleasure to get to know Steve. Not only was he our realtor but he has become a close friend of our family. We cannot say enough thanks to Steve Withrow and recommend him highly to anyone that is looking for a realtor.
  • Buyer

    We worked with Steve on buying a house in Bethesda and selling a house in Northern Virginia. First, it is important to understand we moved pretty fast and Steve kept up with our pace. We entered contracts to buy a house and sell a house within 1 week of our search, and finished up closing on both properties within 6 weeks of our search. We identified our buyers so the selling was a slam dunk and only an administrative hassle for Steve to work up the contract. He did not have to list, show our house, or even negotiate a price. On the buy side, we toured houses over one weekend with him. We identified all of the houses we wanted to see. In short, we didn't waste much of Steve's time. While we were very impressed with Steve's knowledge of the Bethesda market, we mainly ended up using him because we loved the house he showed us on our first day out (before we had formally signed a contract with him) and we also liked that he was able to handle the buy and sell side of our transaction. Steve's positives are that he is really knowledgeable about the Bethesda and Montgomery county market and very responsive. Steve answers his phone, texts, and emails promptly. He also understands the Bethesda market and how to get a deal done. That said, we may recommend him with some hesitation. The main issues were that we found him to be unprofessional at times and we found him to be a poor negotiator for our interests. He was sometimes unprofessional in dealing with us (although always professional in dealing with others) to the extent that we felt he wasn't always representing our best interests. He offended my husband and I a few times when we had concerns about some issues in our deal. Ultimately, our concerns were very valid and we almost lost a couple thousand dollars. He had to apologize to us and the agents worked together to fix the problem, but we lost trust in him. Also, he would not waive his real estate company Long and Foster's $345 documentation fee. While I understand this fee tends to be common practice these days, it is not necessary and given that Steve earned a significant commission working with us with minimal amount of time spent on his end, we left our closing day with a bad taste in our mouth. In sum, Steve was knowledgeable and responsive but somewhat unprofessional and not the best negotiator for our interests. He came highly recommended from friends, so it could have been a 1-off experience. Overall everything worked out, and I do believe he can get the job done if you have to use him.
