Chris helped me sell and buy a home in a very competitive market
Chris helped me sell and buy a home in a very competitive market. He gave me excellent advice on how to prepare my home to sell and even recommended an excellent handyman to help with last minute repairs. My home sold in three days thanks to his excellent marketing tactics! While in the midst of preparing to sell he also helped me identify neighborhoods that would be a good fit for me and walked me tirelessly through many of them! Chris is so easy to work with. He made himself available to answer any questions I had, or to show me a home at the last minute. I got above asking price for my home and was able to win a bid on my dream home all thanks to Chris. I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor that is highly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I don’t plan on moving for a while, but when I do, I know who I’ll call!
Chris is an amazing professional and realtor
Chris is an amazing professional and realtor, who understands not only the market, but his customers. When looking for a realtor, my main interests and reasons were ensuring that I was able to achieve the best value for the sale of my home, have the realtor do the needful beyond listing, target marketing, awareness of demographics to bring the right buyers to the open house, and most importantly someone that would put our needs first in the process. Chris was amazing in all categories, and we sold our home in one weekend at above market value. I will absolutely consult with Chris in the future and continue to support him with his referral business! Thank you again Chris!

We were so fortunate to have found Chris Downey
We were so fortunate to have found Chris Downey when we moved to Alexandria. As our Realtor, he helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was patient as we look for homes over several months and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes.
In short, he was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Chris was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone!
Chris has been our agent for almost two years
Chris has been our agent for almost two years. He became like a family member to us. He has great kids, who became friends with our kid during the process. We were first home buyers in an area where we didn’t know much about but with the help of Chris’ experience, knowledge, negotiation skills, honesty and above all patience and professionalism we were able to navigate the home process with ease and confidence. Chris would answer his phone at anytime of the day, any day of the week. He’s one of the few agents who didn’t care to just close the sale and get his commission, he made sure we were truly satisfied and happy with our purchase. He once offered to add part of his commission to our limit offer to help us make our offer more appealing and get the house we wanted. He’s truly the master of his craft. I can’t say enough about Chris. Very honest guy and well connected. Best agent for the area. You can never go wrong if you hire Chris Downey.
He went above and beyond
Chris was our agent current home and his service was not only outstanding, he went above and beyond at every step of the way. Have experience buying homes and can say that Chris is the best I’ve come across!
Always followed up and always answered our questions
Chris managed to sell our house at a good price and quickly. The neat part: we did this very long distance with one spouse in Germany and one deployed to Afghanistan while Chris ran things in Virginia for us. It took two-way trust between Chris and us and we were not let down in any way. He always followed up and always answered our questions. He marketed the house like we wanted and defended our interests at all times. We heartily recommend Chris as an advocate and negotiator.
Understood completely what it was that we were looking for
We started working with Chris after spending over four months with a different realtor. Our experience with the first realtor had been one of being sent hundreds of houses to consider, very few of which we liked, and then looking at many houses that, while in our price range, were usually far from what we wanted. We met Chris at an open house that we visited (on our own) and made the switch. Big difference! Chris understood completely what it was that we were looking for, and he only sent us listings that matched. We spent a lot less time driving around and we saw fewer duds, Within a month and a half, we’d found a house that we really liked. It was offered above our budget, but Chris helped us get it down to what we were willing to pay. Three years later, we’re still very happy with our home and would recommend Chris to anyone who wants a realtor who wants to find you your house, not just any house, and make sure that, once you find it, you can get it.
We were very happy with his approach
Chris helped us sell both my mother’s house and ours. Two totally different style houses, and Chris adapted and gave expert advice for recommended fixup, pricing and sales strategy tailored to the market for each house. One sold within ten days, and the second had multiple offers despite the dog days of August and closed within two months. We were very happy with his approach, responsiveness and results.
Made our transaction a lot easier
Chris Downey is a great realtor!!! From our initial engagement through the close and even helping us into our new home, we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor or person. His knowledge is vast, negotiation skills tremendous and his interactions give you peace of mind. Buying or selling a home can be stressful, so having Chris as a partner made our transaction a lot easier and provided a solid foundation to keep us steady though the process – with ease!!! I would recommend Chris Downey to ANYONE. (Chris – thank you again!!!).
