Client Testimonials

Purchased condo in Alexandria with Bryan. Fantastic to deal with. Very responsive. Negotiated deal for me and saved me THOUSANDS. If you want an investor minded realtor, choose Bryan.

Bryan was extremely efficient and responsive. I'm confident that he was able to secure the best deal on the purchase of my new home. The homes that I was looking at sold very quickly so it was important for the agent to be instant on top of new listings and Bryan definitely was.

I am a single woman with two teens. After a rough and long four years, it was time to buy a home to settle down with my kids. I was referred to Bryan by a good friend of mine. Bryan was everything I had hoped for as a realtor and a lot more. He was responsive, knowledgeable and available any time I  contacted him. When I found the perfect house, Bryan jumped on it right away and negotiated his way through to make the purchase happen! When we faced some hurdles with the mortgage application, Bryan got involved with my loan officer and we were all able to get the approval. We made it to the settlement very smoothly and now kids and I are all set in our new home. I owe it all to Bryan, I am for ever grateful. Bryan went beyond and above to help me buy the perfect home, managed to get me moving boxes from another client and helped me get an awsome deal to paint the rooms in my new home. I received the best in class service throughout the entire process! THANK YOU BRYAN

Bryan went far beyond the norm in his attentive, informed and caring service to us as we looked for an apartment rental. He made special trips to meet us, took extra steps to serve us, and made our search for a place to live a personal priority. Plus, he's an interesting person and we enjoyed

Bryan was very helpful and walked us through the process well. He even helped me offload the furniture and household items. He helped negotiate an all cash offer that made sense for both sides. Highly recommended.

Bryan is amazing! He made the seemingly daunting and somewhat intimidating process of buying our first house easy and enjoyable. He clearly knows the business and was able to provide us great advice on what to focus on with our purchased. He was responsive and took care of details without ever  being asked. There is no question I would recommend him to others.

Tom was absolutely amazing with helping us with our first home purchase. He was extremely attentive and helpful. He also had a very short response time, always answering all of our questions and requests. I would highly recommend him!

Bryan was recommended to us by a family member, and we are really glad that we decided to use his services. He was really knowledgeable and had some great suggestions. He was very patient and professional throughout the entire process and even worked with us after hours to accommodate our work  schedule. We have already recommended him to our family and friends.

Bryan exceeded all of my expectations and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to prospective buyers/sellers. He has a thorough knowledge of the DC/VA/MD housing market, a solid understanding of renovation quality/costs, is responsive to requests, and always professional. In addition, Bryan was very adept at  guiding me through the home buying process at my own pace. For me, Bryan was a one-stop shop. The mortgage broker he recommended was prompt and courteous, the title office he recommended handled the closing in 40 minutes, and he even helped me to find a handyman to take care of some odds and ends before I moved in. You would be crazy to use another realtor. 

Bryan helped us sell our condo in arlington. We currently do not live in the area and he went over and above to make sure we were comfortable working through the sale from Chicago. During the course of the listing of our condo our property received water damage from the unit above which made the  process more difficult. Bryan was able to secure a contract at our desired price and he stayed vigilant through out the process. He handled the hurdles professionally and was always responsive.

- Omar K.

Bryan is a knowledgeable and understanding agent. He is not pushy and will consider your needs and happiness above all else if you chose to work with him. He did the job that another tried and sold our house. He delivered!

As a first time homeowner, it was important for me to find someone who could help guide me through the entire process. Bryan not only held me hand through the entire thing, he went above and beyond and help make sure that I found the best deal possible. In addition, after all the papers were signed  and I got my keys, he still took the time to follow up afterwards to make sure everything was perfect, even going as far as chasing down the previous owner to find a specific paint color. I could not have asked for a better experience.

- Eugene Kim

Bryan made a very time-sensitive and complicated process seem ordinary and routine. I would recommend his services to anyone shopping in the DMV area.

Bryan goes out of his way to find a solution to your problem. Whatever you are looking for he's going to find a way for you to have it. Outside the box thinking, as well as access to complimentary resources and expertise makes Bryan a great person to work with be it for a straight up purchase (or  sale) or to manage your renovation project. I was very pleased with my time with Bryan and definitely recommend him and his work.

I could not ask for a better realtor to help me buy house! Made himself available for my convenience and was a great help in making decisions. Steve went above & beyond to assist. Thanks Steve!

As I was moving internationally and had next to no local knowledge of the D.C / North Virginia area, Bryan was able to navigate me through the traps and pitfalls of the real estate market to find what is a perfect match. Bryan took the time to understand what was important to me and recommend,  organized and facilitated showings for prospective houses. Bryan went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with my house and all the paperwork was in order. If searching for a house I highly recommend contacting Bryan. 

Bryan Zupan is a fantastic Realtor! He never let up on the focus of our listing. Even after getting a contract, he continued to push for more and ended up a getting a sale price and subsequent net payout we were happy with. He also handled the TOPA process to avoid any tenant issues for the  transaction. We highly recommend Bryan Zupan for all of your realty needs! 

- Stephen Orr

Our experience with Bryan was excellent. He is extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of buying a home (selling too I am sure!)

We initially just wanted to check out the market before buying later in the year. Bryan took us out to explore different units to help refine our criteria. His desire to continue looking in the community we wanted to live in until he found the best fit for us was impressive. He helped us determine the best offer and negotiated our deal with the seller's agent. He was involved in every aspect of the process from mortgage, inspection, closing and even the move!

We were renting at the time and needed to get out of our lease early. Bryan listed our place and found new tenants for the landlord. He was informative, attentive to all of the details and very responsive when we asked questions.

Bryan made buying a condo a very fun and enjoyable process. He answered questions, anticipated our needs and helped us even after we closed the deal. He made recommendations on all of the different aspects of the business of buying a home. He suggested vendors to help us with a few projects before we moved in and even helped us with finalizing our move. Working with Bryan has been the best part of our home buying experience.

We highly recommend him and have already done just that! Some of our friends are working with him to find their future home :)

Bryan helped my husband and me find an apartment rental in NW DC. He was great to work with -- super professional, responsive, and knowledgable. We had been searching on our own for weeks, and it was truly a breath of fresh air and a relief to have someone step in and be so helpful. He took us  to see 3 apartments in one afternoon, and we ended up settling on one he showed us. He helped us through the application process and continued to follow up with us to make sure everything was sorted out. It was a pleasure to work with Bryan, and we will definitely reach out to him again when we are ready to buy. 

Bryan was recommended to us by a family member, and we are really glad that we decided to use his services. He was really knowledgeable and had some great suggestions. He was very patient and professional throughout the entire process and even worked with us after hours to accommodate our work  schedule. We have already recommended him to our family and friends.

I met Bryan several years ago when he helped me find a tenant for my apartment. He listed and showed the apt and was able to find a tenant that stayed for 4 years. When the tenant left, I looked to Bryan again for the sale of my apt. Living out of town, I was not able to visit the property and  Bryan assessed what improvements/repairs needed to be done to show the apt in its best light. He worked with the contractors and made sure everything was done correctly. Bryan is a great communicator and even though I was far away, I definitely felt in the loop during each step of the process. Bryan is very trustworthy and I would definitely recommend him for your property needs. 

Bryan was a superb buying broker for us. He is very responsive, has always a creative suggestion for how one might improve a property, and offers options. We were especially impressed with his negotiating skills and savy, which helped us find a way out of an impasse halfway through the buying  process. His network of professionals in various lines in the real estate business also seems to comprise very competent and knowledgeable people. This was a very smooth purchase experience. We look forward to continuing to work with Bryan. 

Being a first time home buyer was as exciting as it was nerving. Thankfully, we had Steve Knopf walking us through the process step by step. Some of Steve’s qualities as an agent that added value to our real estate experience:

  • Trustworthy, honesty, and integrity
  • A problem solving mind  set
  • Reliable and fast to respond
  • Friendly people person – not pushy at all
  • Listened to our wants and needs in a home and delivered results
  • Proficiency with the details
  • Vast knowledge in the local market
  • Experience in working construction and home remodeling- may or may not be a “licensed” General Contractor… but his knowledge of such added value to our sound decision of a quality purchase.
  • Appreciation for architecture and design
  • Well established working relationships that made all the moving parts work seamlessly

I believe Steve truly loves real estate. People are usually great at what they do; when they are doing what they love. Thus, in all future real estate endeavors I’d recommend Steve Knopf as a real estate agent

Bryan Zupan was very helpful in selling a condo in Alexandria. In addition to being outstanding in all the normal areas of a real estate transaction (listing, open houses, contract negotiation and closing, he went way above expectations on assisting in resolving some issues that arose following  the inspection. Being an out of town seller meant that I relied on Bryan to find craft people to fix minor issues.

Bryan was great to work with. He listened and understood exactly what we were (and were not) looking for, and kept our interests in mind at every turn. He was extremely knowledgable, patient, and helpful in navigating the market and finding us a great fit. He is a hard worker and excellent  communicator. He also genuinely cares about his clients. We feel very fortunate to have worked with him and would absolutely work with him again. He gets our highest recommendation! 

Bryan was awesome from start to finish, very accessible, always available, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I highly recommend him and would do business with him again.

Bryan represented me in the sale of my Dupont Circle home. The sale was emotionally loaded for me and the buyers were inexperienced and nervous. Not only did Bryan assure that I left the settlement table with proceeds that met my target, he navigated the interpersonal waters perfectly, being  sensitive to me and, as importantly, to the newbie buyers. A number of issues arose that could have derailed the transaction and Bryan met each one with calm and a willingness to take the lead in solving the problem, irrespective of which side raised the issue. Since I was handling everything from several hundred miles away, his initiative, his willingness to be constantly available and his abiding good humor made all the difference. I could not recommend him more highly.

Tom came into to work with us after our house sat on the market for six months with another agent. Through his community outreach and strong work ethic we were under contract in 45 days. Tom is kind and responsive and I fully recommend him.

We had a fantastic experience with Bryan as our agent. Even though we were conducting our real estate search from a distance (overseas, at that), Bryan maintained regular contact and provided excellent guidance to help us find the right house. He advised us on market conditions and viewed houses  on our behalf, sending us detailed feedback and helpful videos so that we could have a better sense of what places looked like beyond the glossy wide-angled photos on listings. When it came time to make an offer, Bryan ‘s deep knowledge helped us to come up with a competitive price and strategy that was ultimately successful against other parties who had offered a significantly higher price. His excellent service didn’t end at closing, as he has helped to facilitate a number of make-ready arrangements (including overseeing some renovation work through his trusted network of service providers). Really, we couldn’t have asked for more — Bryan is a great professional who is willing to go that extra mile for his clients!

Bryan went far beyond the norm in his attentive, informed and caring service to us as we looked for an apartment rental. He made special trips to meet us, took extra steps to serve us, and made our search for a place to live a personal priority. Plus, he's an interesting person and we enjoyed   getting to know him. We would definitely recommend him to our friends and would call on him again as our housing needs change.

I contacted Bryan over a month before I planned to visit D.C. to look at places to live, regarding a unit I really liked. My move-in date did not coincide with the availability of the unit, but Bryan asked me to reach out to him closer to the time I was traveling to D.C. so that he could provide me  other options. As requested, I contacted him shortly before my trip and he did not disappoint. I was sent several listings that matched my requirements, and narrowed it down to a few that I wanted to see. Bryan was very accommodating in setting up a time to view the units, and offered me great insight about the neighborhoods we visited. He is incredibly personable and competent. I fell in love with the first unit he showed me, and he worked relentlessly to ensure that I got it. Throughout the entire process he was in constant contact, which is doubly reassuring when trying to secure a lease from out-of-state. I will absolutely be recommending Bryan to anyone I know looking to rent, buy or sell.

Mr Zupan was assigned to help us relocate from Denmark to the US. He fast became a solid and great support for us, understanding our need and wishes, and adapted to these. He understood the market and in more than one occasion his determination and communication skills opened doors for us, so we in  the end found our dream house. I can literally say that because of his negotiation skills we were able to close the deal despite the fact that we were sitting on the other side of the world. We give our highest recommendation to Bryan, and if needed will use him again in the future.

Tom had previously helped my wife and I find a rental house a few years ago. Recently, and based on that positive experience, we chose to work with Tom again for a home purchase. He was great throughout the process, was available whenever we needed him, and was integral in helping us close the  deal. He is an extremely understanding and caring realtor, who took the time to help provide and show us various listings on multiple occasions. He was not pushy, but instead focused on helping us find the right fit. Once we made a selection, Tom masterfully led us through the process from offer through closing. I was astonished at how smooth and swift the process was with Tom at the helm. My prior experiences with realtors had almost all been negative, but we are 2 for 2 with Tom. We intend to always work with him again should we need another home, and we would certainly recommend him to anyone who needed a realtor in the DC-MD-VA area. Top notch professional!!

Bryan is excellent to work with. I have worked with Bryan over the last several years to help buy and sell investment properties. He has added considerable value to my transactions through strong negotiation skills and market knowledge. I would work with him again on my future real estate needs.

Bryan helped us sell our condo in arlington. We currently do not live in the area and he went over and above to make sure we were comfortable working through the sale from Chicago. During the course of the listing of our condo our property received water damage from the unit above which made the  process more difficult. Bryan was able to secure a contract at our desired price and he stayed vigilant through out the process. He handled the hurdles professionally and was always responsive. I would work with Bryan in the future.

- Omar Khokhar

My husband and I were stuck in a strange situation when the condo we were wanting to rent fell through. We needed something new and ASAP. Bryan got right on the job and started showing us places right away. He is very laid back and easy to talk to and took our requests/budget/etc into consideration  when selecting places to show us. It worked out for the best and in the end we found a great place- where we have been for over a year now and still loving it! My husband and I highly recommend Bryan to help you find a place to rent or buy! 

Bryan helped me buying a short sale and was extremely patient with the process. He worked the fine details and helped get me settled in quickly. Absolutely would recommend Bryan as he is very knowledgeable of the area and provides all the help you will need (even with the little things). Thanks

- Michael Beagle

Awesome realtor, extremely helpful. He had the difficult time of having to find us a few units that would allow Pit Bulls, which are often on landlords restricted list. He worked diligently to provide us various options in our price range. He also had great working knowledge of each DC neighborhood  and gave us great feedback to try and help narrow our selection process. I'm the end we found our dream unit in a great neighborhood - we are extremely grateful to have found Bryan and would recommend him to anyone. 

Bryan represented me in the sale of my Dupont Circle home. The sale was emotionally loaded for me and the buyers were inexperienced and nervous. Not only did Bryan assure that I left the settlement table with proceeds that met my target, he navigated the interpersonal waters perfectly, being  sensitive to me and, as importantly, to the newbie buyers.

Bryan was great. He never pressured me even though we went out many, many times looking at properties. He was responsive and knowledgeable of different neighborhoods in DC. He also pulled together last minute offers for me and always made sure I was comfortable with the terms before submitting.  Hands down would use him again! 

I had a great experience with Bryan. He was always there to pick me up, rain or shine, any day of the week or weekend when I was ready to go view houses. He was able to supplement my own research with his own insightful recommendations direct from the ML listings, and he provided great comps on  properties i was more serious about. After about 8 weeks of searching we found the perfect property for me. The seller's situation was very unique/bizarre, to say the least, and he did a fantastic job traversing those tumultuous waters. It def. felt good to have someone with his experience in my corner. Bryan's underlying philosophy is customer satisfaction, and it is evident in all his actions as an agent. Highly recommend Bryan for the greater Washington D.C. area! 

Bryan helped my partner and I to find the perfect apartment rental in DC when we both moved to town for new career opportunities. He is a fantastic resource in terms of knowledge of the city and insights into neighborhood trends. He introduced us to several hidden and off-market opportunities, and  did an excellent job of finding a place that met our needs and negotiating on our behalf. He is reliable, dedicated, and skillful, and far exceeded our expectations. I recommend Bryan to colleagues and friends regularly - he is a terrific guy and a great agent to have on your side.

As a first time home buyer, I found a lot of resources available online, but it is one thing to read articles and gain a general understanding of the process. It is another thing to find an agent you can trust to keep your best interests in mind and guide you through the tricky home-buying maze,  all while having the patience of a saint. Bryan was absolutely fantastic and made my and my wife's first home-purchase experience a breeze. He was available literally day and night, and turned around correspondence almost immediately. In fact, on one occasion, I was surprised to learn from his out of office message that he was following up on a lead while he was on a personal vacation. What more can be said of such a great and caring professional?!

Perhaps the icing on the cake was the way he held my and my wife's hands and walked us step by step through the purchasing process and made sure we were making the right investment at the best deal possible, and all of this while we were not even being in the country. Yes, that's right. Bryan did all of this from afar. As a government employee assigned overseas, I figured this was going to be a sticking point, but not for Bryan. He not only took time to go to all prospective properties over a period of four months and upload personalized video tours, he coordinated FaceTime sessions and even identified a home inspector, a closing agent, the title company, and most importantly, had a personal loan officer from George Mason help secure loan estimates and details ahead of schedule. Just like Bryan, his loan agent worked around the clock, literally, due to being in different time zones, to secure estimates and ultimately a great loan that even my personal credit union could not beat. Bryan's efforts and contacts no doubt helped us edge out the competition.

At every step of the game, Bryan brought his A-game. I highly recommend Bryan for the first-time home buyer, or a purchasing pro. Anyone stands to gain a lot from his experience. 

I met Bryan after touring an apartment I found on Zillow (he represented the seller). This was my first time buying, and I hadn't hired an agent. I ultimately bought that apartment with Bryan's help, which was fantastic. He was extremely helpful and transparent from the beginning; he made me feel  comfortable as a first time buyer. He even followed-up with me after the sale to check that I had purchased home owner's insurance and had my name put on the utilities accounts. Great guy! Great agent!

Bryan is a top notch professional and I would highly recommended him. He’s an excellent realtor and really aggressive in getting the property you want and walking you through the process step by step. Even after closing, he continues to provide resources.

My experience was great . Steve is very friendly and easy to get ahold of . He is very knowledgeable of the home market and can find you exactly what your looking for . I will surely be recommending him to everyone I know and will continue to use him as my real estate agent from now on.

Bryan has helped me with two properties. Each time he found places that included everything on my list of what I wanted and were better than I expected. Bryan gives great attention to detail and knows how to pinpoint what matters most. He's got a talent for matching the person to the place. I  highly recommend Bryan, especially if you don't have a lot of time to look. He's efficient and knows the region very well. Thank you, Bryan!

Bryan exceeded all of my expectations and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to prospective buyers/sellers. He has a thorough knowledge of the DC/VA/MD housing market, a solid understanding of renovation quality/costs, is responsive to requests, and always professional. In addition, Bryan was very adept at  guiding me through the home buying process at my own pace. For me, Bryan was a one-stop shop. The mortgage broker he recommended was prompt and courteous, the title office he recommended handled the closing in 40 minutes, and he even helped me to find a handyman to take care of some odds and ends before I moved in. You would be crazy to use another realtor.

Steven was extremely professional and friendly. We felt that we had our best friend looking for our home and negotiating. My wife and I look forward to working with him again when we are ready to upgrade and expand our family

My experience with Mr. Knopf was fantastic from start to finish. Steven knew that we were initially considering working with another realtor and was very professional in his approach, ultimately resulting in us choosing him as our representative in this purchase. Within days of initial contact,  Steven found us a home to our exact requirements which is now ours. He handled the process of contract negotiations and following contingencies with enthusiasm and knowledge. If you are looking for a realtor in the area and are considering Steven, look no further. He's top notch and you will not be disappointed. I give him a strong 5-stars in all categories and know you will too.

I love that Bryan was responsive and there whenever we needed him. He was not overly pushy but provided the right insights and suggestions is a very professional demeanor. He used his network of trusted partners to provide expertise and was completely trustworthy. That to me is the number one quality when making a large purchase especially coming into an unknown area. We also have engaged him in listing our rental. I hope to continue working with him for years to come.

Bryan was fantastic to work with and he was very efficient to help me get the condo listed. Very responsive and helpful not only with me as seller but also with buyer agents which ultimately resulted in getting my condo sold within 60 days of listing. Thank you!
