It was my first time buying a property and I was recommended by a close friend to speak with Boris. This friend had purchased twice with him and both experiences were very positive. I approached him knowing finding the right real estate agent is just like buying a property--a process. However, after our first initial meeting, I was set on working with him. Boris is knowledgeable, respectful, quick-to-respond/act, pleasant to work with, and understands the client; the 'shark' agent you want working for YOU! I appreciate that he was always clear about things and looked after my interest. Boris encouraged me to ask him all the questions I had and was very patient and attentive to respond and explain. In a sellers market like it is in DC, properties don't last long and often become a bidding war. I made two offers in total and both times were accepted (the first didn't work out due to a pending legal issue between the owner and the condo association). I bought a short-sale, which is hard to come across in DC, in a great location and condition. And now that I am a homeowner, I continue to trust him and reach out for advice on some issues re. property ownership, improvements, maintenance, etc. Overall, my experience buying a property with Boris was pleasant, swift, and almost too easy to be true!
