I just wanted to send a note to thank you for all your hard work with the sale of my place on Massachusetts Ave. As you know, COOP’s are not always the easiest to sell in DC (Unlike NY where nearly every other place is a COOP), but you were able to do that in record time (12 days from offer to settlement must surely be a record for a DC coop). Thank you . As you know, I interviewed several other real estate agents before making my decision, and it was obviously the right one to go with you guys. Your suggestions about decluttering a few things was on target, and the photos of the place used for the brochure were so good, they made me think I was making a mistake selling it! The entire process from start to finish was professional, wonderfully choreographed, and minimally stressful thanks to your attention to detail and your availability when I needed my many questions addressed. Thank you!

Martin and Jeff came through for me yet again! I have used their team to buy and sell properties in DC multiple times over the years and I have never been disappointed. I recently used Martin and Jeff to sell a corner property in Shaw and to purchase a beautiful new home in Maryland. The sale price of the DC property was over asking and the purchase price of the Maryland home was just enough to guarantee the sale in my favor. Martin and Jeff know the DMV real estate market and work tirelessly on behalf of their clients. Martin and Jeff’s team of professionals and their network of contractors and advisors work like a well-oiled machine. While buying and selling properties at the same time could have been overwhelming, the guidance and support provided by the Martin and Jeff team throughout the process always made me feel that everything was under control. I highly recommend this team for your real estate needs.


Jeff Brier and Martin Toews have been my real estate agents for 25 years and have seen me through several sales and purchases. They know the market, and they know how to navigate it to find the best fit for their clients’ needs and desires. I cannot overstate their responsiveness, attention to detail, flexibility, patience and good humor. With their assistance, my closings have gone smoothly and with a minimum of stress. I have never felt pressured, and have always known they were looking out for my best interests. You’ll be in the best of hands with Martin and Jeff!


Martin, Jeff and their team are fantastic! For over a decade, they have been – and continue to be -- the team of choice for many friends and family members, as well as for me. They are incredible in navigating the bidding process, helping me twice to land my ideal properties, despite incredibly tight markets. Once an offer is accepted, they have teams of experts to help with inspections, pool inspections, termites, title issues, non-traditional financing – you name it, they have it covered. On the selling side, they have full teams of professionals who can help get your property ready to sell in a short period of time. I had MANY questions throughout the process -- as a first time condo-buyer, and then as a first time house buyer. They patiently coached me through the process, bringing in experts to answer questions as needed.

Martin and Jeff sold our home of 16 years last summer in an off market transaction and then helped us find a fabulous apartment. This was the tenth time we have bought or sold a property and it was by far the smoothest process. From setting a competitive sale price to keeping the escrow companies on track, Martin and Jeff made sure that we didn’t have to worry about any aspect of the sale of the house or purchase of the apartment. Martin has a unique gift of making sure that sellers and buyers are equally happy with the outcome. He finds the compromise that everybody can agree to and makes sure that things stay amicable and efficient throughout. We would gladly work with Martin and Jeff again should we decide to buy or sell real estate in the future.

We have had the pleasure of working with Martin and Jeff on three home purchases and sales in the District. Their deep knowledge of the market and strategic pricing insights are incredible assets to buyers and sellers in competitive markets like this one.
