AJ and I have worked together for 10 years. He helped me by my first condo when I was 24, sell it 5 years later and buy a townhouse, and most recently, sell the townhouse when my family decided to move to Seattle.

There were challenges associated with each transaction. I bought the condo during the height of the real estate boom. I believe there were 7 other offers on the condo but with AJ's help writing the contract with an escalation clause AND the fact that AJ was the only real estate agent who went TO the contract review in person I was able to secure the condo AND close on it in three weeks.

5 years later, we sold the condo during the "slump". But with AJ's help we priced the condo correctly and sold it in 3 months (keep in mind that similar condos were sitting on the market for 7+ months). AJ also would have open houses and sit there in the condo even when only a few people would stop by.

At the same time, my husband and I bought a very nice townhouse. However, the road to buying was littered with 2 other contracts put onto other townhouses in the same development that fell through due to no fault of AJ's or ours. But AJ never gave up and continued to work to make our dream happen.

Most recently, my family decided to move to Seattle. So, we had to get the townhouse ready for sale while we were moving out. We needed it to sell FAST because of course, who wants a mortgage and rent at the same time? AJ had to assume most of the responsibility to get the house ready (staging it) because we had already moved to Seattle. Well, needless to say AJ rocked it and we got a full price offer the FIRST day it went on the market.

So, in a nutshell, AJ is awesome. He is a great choice for someone new to buying a house because he explains every step of the way and never makes one feel silly for asking questions. He goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly and I NEVER had doubts that AJ always worked only in my best interests???no one else's.

You won't go wrong working with AJ.

I cannot recommend AJ enough for all your realty needs in the MD/DC area. AJ stuck with me through thick and thin, a year and a half till I was finally able to sit down and buy a house. When I was ready, he knew exactly what house, amenities and neighborhood type I wanted (yes, I am picky), and only showed me houses he knew I would really like. With a minimal budget and high expectations, AJ delivered! He is calming, reasonable and truly listens to you with an innate sense of what your tastes really are in a home, and any time of day was available to take you to properties. AJ and his team made the offering, contracting, negotiation and inspection process easy. The financial expertise he recommended went above and beyond, and I have the perfect house, in the exact location I wanted. AJ is realtor that really gives his all for his client, he makes you feel like he is looking out for your best interest and never tries to force you into a house you don't have that "ah-hah" moment over. I recommend AJ to everyone now and can't recommend him enough to you.

In one word: WOW. My husband and I cannot recommend AJ highly enough!! We consider ourselves very fortunate to have worked with such a fantastic realtor. AJ is 100% trustworthy, dependable, knowledgeable, and transparent. He patiently guided us through purchasing our first home, and helped us figure out the appropriate location, price range, and type of home. We were all over the place when we first started our home search, and AJ was instrumental in helping us figure out what the best place was for us. He really kept our best interests in the forefront, gave us honest guidance, and always took the time to explain things to us thoroughly--and multiple times if necessary! As first time home buyers, we were quite skiddish (having two "false alarms" before we actually went through with putting an offer in on a house). AJ talked everything through with us, and made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. He really cared that we understood the process at every juncture (as we discovered, real estate transactions get very complicated very quickly). When we finally did find "THE" house, AJ helped us put together a competitive offer, but never pushed us to do anything we were not comfortable with. In the end our offer was accepted, and my husband and I couldn't be happier in our new home. It is the perfect fit.

We are so grateful to AJ for helping us find the perfect home for us, and for making our first home purchase such a positive experience.

AJ was great at helping my girlfriend and I find our new home. He was knowledgeable about the Hyattsville/Riverdale Park area and was really helpful throughout the entire process. He was not at all pushy and let us go at our own pace finding a house which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend him to first time home buyers, his experience in Maryland real estate really put us at ease.

AJ is one of the most honest, patient and knowledgable realtors in the metro Washington area. We were very pleased with his services. He has gone above and beyond his duty. My husband and I were very picky about the houses. Sometimes, my husband liked the house, but I did not, and vice versa. AJ never pressured either one of us in buying a house. He wanted both of us to be comfortable. As a result, we got the home of our dreams $30K below asking price a few days after a house was listed, which is nearly impossible in this market.

So, if you want a loyal, hard-working realtor, AJ is the realtor for you.

With all the obvious traits listed above, we found working with AJ was very eye opening for me and my husband. We are first time homebuyer, so everything was very confusing and overwhelming for us both paperwork and the technical scope of a house. AJ explains paperwork term in more simple sentences and sat troughout our entire home inspection and offer us tips and info about a house. He always gives his honest opinion about a property, if the house that we looked at was not good he would say it's not worth it. When we finally saw the house we end up buying, He gets excited too for us and suggest us to go for it without being pushy. We definetely recommend working with AJ. It's a peace of mind knowing somebody works hard for you and your best interest in making the most expensive purchase in your life.

  I was a first time home buyer, and I had met with a couple agents before meeting AJ. But I didn't meet with anyone after him. He immediately picked up on my must have list, but then quickly picked up on what in a house made me love it. He remembered the little details that made the process quicker. I had limitted knowlege of the home purchase process, and he was very patient and never condescending in his explanation of everything I had questions on. I had many of them. AJ was always responsive to mine and the sellers emails. Also, I found that his knowlege of the area was instramental in recommending locations, services, and lending companies. He was always careful first to suggest that I research anything on my own, so that I could be sure that when he suggested someone or something it was fair and reasonable. If/when I sell the house I recently purchased, I have no doubt that I will be calling AJ to be my listing agent. Now that I am moving in, I trust AJ to have a name or advice in finding services in the area. I would 100% recomend AJ to anyone.

I started working with AJ over a year ago when I first started thinking about buying and he successfully and patiently walked through every step of the process with me. I knew little about real estate going in. Some real estate agents would probably have used that to their advantage. Not AJ. He took the time to explain everything to me, all the factors to consider, and where to get more information if I needed it. He is very knowledgeable about the market, the area, and finding precisely the listings that fit your needs and preferences. But he's also good at helping you explore other options without being pushy. He was initially referred to me by my brother-in-law, who used AJ when he purchased his home years ago. His selling point was that AJ is a truly honest agent. Or, as he would say, "for AJ it's not about the contract, it's about the person." That's AJ in a nutshell. Today I am a happy homeowner thanks to AJ. He helped us find the right home for us and went out of his way to make things as easy as possible for us. Did I mention I mostly went through the process while living overseas? I don't think I could have successfully done that with any ease of mind with just any agent. I can't recommend AJ enough. If you're looking to buy, no matter what type of home you're looking for, give AJ a call today!

“Two aspects made a big difference for us. 1. Providing analysis & options-with decision left to us. This has a strong appeal to technical and policy folks…2. Going well beyond the norm to assist and answer questions. Talking to specialists on our behalf was fantastically helpful, saved us time, indecision and built our confidence. Nice work!"

A complete delight at a stressful time for me and I had no worries or problems, AND you got me more for my house then the asking price... Job well done.
- Dale C,. Home seller in Silver Spring

We were very pleased by the service you provided to us. At our introductory meeting you walked us through the basic steps of homebuying in DC. (which we definitely needed as new homebuyers). You asked detailed questions to obtain a realistic picture of what we were and were not looking for in a home. As a result, you were able to quickly identify the condo we were looking for.
In addition, you recommended an excellent home inspector and title company that minimized the stress of the homebuying process. Overall you made the homebuying process as painless and straightforward as possible. Thank you for your help!
- M & LH, Condo buyers in DC

We think you did a great job in assisting us. Always calling and returning phone calls and answering questions timely. Thanks a lot.

  I valued the trustworthiness that Andrew Johnson offers to clients. In my case, it was a critical offering. It made the difference in using his services for selling and buying a house.
Andrew Johnson stands by his pledge to customers and I assert that Andrew delivers on his word... Andrew was the perfect fit to handle all aspects of my seller/buyer situation, I am very grateful.

- Maria B., Home seller and buyer in Silver Spring

AJ was excellent... Very patient, willing to show us everything and always followed through with our requests. AJ was very friendly, accessible and together we learned about the DC market.
- Eve & Gordon M., DC Townhouse Buyers


We really enjoyed working with AJ. As first time homebuyers we were learning a lot about the process of buying a home. We had a million questions and really needed a lot of time talking with AJ. He met us on a Saturday and spent several hours with us and really helped us to see how much home we were able to buy. He answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly. Once we started looking at homes AJ quickly learned what we liked and disliked and was able to direct us better toward the perfect home. He gave us so much attention, with daily phone calls, weekly home visits and time on the weekends, you would have thought we were his only clients. Best of all, AJ listened to us and really knew when that "dream house" came along... We are incredibly happy in our 1st new home. Thanks AJ.
