The biggest compliment we receive is our client's satisfaction and friendships for life. We work hard to exceed their expectations and meet their real estate goals. Here are a few samples of our client experiences with District Partners. Additional comments and references are available upon request.
I recently purchased my first home using Mr. Andre Castaneda-Perez as my realtor. Andre and his colleagues at District Partners are unbelievable. Andre was the third agent I worked with after having the first tell me to touch base with her after the summer and the second tell me I was unrealistic to inquire about houses in my price range—condos would be my only option. How mistaken they both were.Jaime L.
Upon contacting Andre for the first time he suggested we go look at some properties that weekend. I was floored! Thus far I had yet to even see a property with my other agents. After a couple of duds, I began to get a bit discouraged by what DC’s market had to offer in my price range but that feeling was short lived. Andre was confident that I would find the right home and that he would be the one to help me. He had no problem taking me from home to home until I found the one I wanted. He used his expertise to get me the best deal and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Andre NEVER discouraged me in my quest to find the “perfect” home, and saw me though every step of the way—patiently explaining things to a complete novice like me. He made me feel like my modest purchase amount was a million dollar deal. He made intelligent recommendations and provided me with a number of suggestions every step of the way. He answered all of my questions almost immediately either via email but mostly by phone which is a nice personal touch. He gave me wonderful advice about the neighborhood, setting up utilities, home improvement, and taxes. He is truly a one stop shop! I cannot sing Andre’s praises enough.
Andre and his colleagues are true professionals. I would not hesitate to use him again. I can assure anyone that if you are in the market for a new home do not hesitate to contact him. You will not be disappointed.
I can't say enough good things about Andre (and District One). My fiance and I were looking to buy our first house in the Maryland/DC area and Andre listened to what we wanted and was completely on top of things. Not only were we in a super-competitive market focused in the Petworth area, but our price range forced us to compete with investors in a market that moves within days. His skills, instinct, and efficiency ultimately won us our house! When we hit a hold up with title issues heading to closing, Andre was constantly pushing things along when it seemed dead in the water. We were almost ready to start over, but in the end, his persistence again won the day, and we closed in a couple weeks!Stephanie M.
There is also something to be said about his depth of knowledge in both real estate, property investment, and mortgage, which was invaluable to us throughout the process of finding our first house.
We are so happy with Andre's work and professionalism, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. We would absolutely trust any future real estate transactions to Andre, and look forward to working with him in the future!
My husband and I have bought several houses and as such have dealt with many real estate agents. Andre is simply the Best. He is super professional, gives excellent advise, is very prompt, always available to help and respond questions no matter how important they are.Federico B.
After perusing DC with Andre and his team for a couple of weeks I can comfortably say I consider them friends.
Andre doesn't forget you once the deal is done. I have called him and his team for recommendations and help on a numerous things. He has always come through with excellent, timely recommendations and suggestions, always making us feel like helping us is his/their highest priority. I highly recommend Andre and his superb team for your real estate transaction.
A friend of my wife and I referred us to Andre who helped her buy a house a month or so ago and she raved about how great he was and for the first time, a referral really lived up to the billing. He was great to work with, very accessible (he checked in on us while he was on vacation) and really made the whole process very easy. He answered every question we had and we truly valued his opinion and insights. Years from now, when we are looking for another house, Andre is the first and hopefully last person I will talk to!Chris B.
Andre helped us find and purchase our condo in Georgetown, and then he helped us list and sell it several years later. Andre took excellent care of us, and we always felt like Andre had our best interests at heart. Andre is very responsive and is an excellent negotiator. When there was a flood while the condo was under contract, Andre made sure the sellers replaced the hardwood floors in time and at no additional cost. Andre did an excellent job of marketing our condo, taking high definition photos and making sure we had a strong presence online, which is so important in today's market. We received our first offer in only two weeks at asking price! We have recommended Andre to all of our friends (who have gone on to buy homes with Andre), and we will buy our next home with Andre in the future.Michael M.
Andre went above and beyond the call of duty! He is freindly, honest, and a hard worker. He really wants you to be happy with your purchase and make the whole transaction as easy as possible. I have told all of my friends that he is the only guy to talk to when looking for a home.Krista W.
Working with Andre was a dream. We had been with 2 previous agents and we were unable to find a home. After working with Andre for about 2 months, we found our dream property. He was knowledgeable and always on top of things. All parts of the process went smoothly. He showed us tons of homes and talked us through the various pros and cons of each property that met our specific needs. He was never pushy and always was available via email or phone. He even helped with tiny issues that arose after moving in. I enthusiastically recommend Andre. Like my husband said, "Andre's the best - forget the rest."Tauheeda Y.
Andre was extremely patient in answering my questions and letting me view as many properties as I wanted. He was very knowledgable and gave advice when appropriate. He is professional, but very personable - he truly cares about his clients. Whenever I was with him, I felt like I was his only client. He went above and beyond to set up our closing with a title company that would be a good fit for me, and made everything happen quickly. He has a great team and I would recommend Andre to anyone who wants quality service.Ronda B.
To keep it to the point, Andre listed my property at the right market price I wanted, which was $50K more than the highest recommended price by 6 other NW DC realtors. Notably, the property was under contract within 30 days. For Andre's negotiation skills, local knowledge and hard working nature, I've already recommended him to several friends and fellow investors. What I appreciated the most is Andre had the courage to take on a challenging listing and commit to see it through(building had delinquency issues for traditional financing), where all 4 other realtors were looking for an easy score by listing the property lower even before they learnt about the delinquency issues.Viren M.
Andre is amazing. My wife and I leveraged his expertise when purchasing our home, and again when we sold. When we purchased, he helped us save over $10k through the negotiation process (on a $200k condo). When we sold, his expertise and skills led to a cash offer with no contingencies within 5 days of listing. What helps set him apart from other realtors is the quality of the listing - from the detailed and colorful wording to the top-notch pictures of the property (do not underestimate the importance of quality pictures!!). To top off his professional expertise, he is incredibly personable. You cannot go wrong with Andre and District One Properties! I highly recommend him and will be using him again in the future.Seth B.
Andre is a great realtor with a great deal of experience. My wife and I have bought two and sold one house with Andre, and the experience is always great. Andre will coach first time homebuyers through the process, and give pointers as to how he thinks you should move forward. His team is very responsive and manages the process fantastically from day one. They also go above and beyond in between buying and selling to discuss renovations, financing, etc. We've searched all over DC and the MD metro area, and his team is very knowledgeable about all of it. If you want someone who works for you, eases your stress during the process, and finds the houses that you want, Andre and his team are who you should go to.Keith S.
