"Everett did an "over-the-top" job selling my house when my wife and I were relocated to Atlanta. He was detailed, organized, and very in-tune with what was happening in our local market. Not only did he get our home under-contract, he was able to quickly organize and manage some small repairs we needed in order to close the transaction. What a relief it was for us to know that our home was sold and we could move into our new home in Atlanta stress free! If we ever move back to DC, Everett will be our first phone call! "
