Koki is a fantastic agent. He has put together a great team which is caring and efficient. Koki was the second agent that I worked with in selling my house and in our first conversation, Koki showed that he was a class above my previous agent when he asked relevant questions about myself and the history of my home to establish a strategy for marketing and selling my house. He knew exactly what was needed to move the house quickly and he showed not only his expertise but supported me in the changes and improvements that I needed to make. Within 5 days of listing I received multiple offers and closed in less than 2 weeks. I would highly recommend Koki and Associates.

- Henry Addo – Woodridge, DC Seller

Koki and his team were amazing partners in our home buying and selling processes from start to finish. We could not have asked for a better team to sell our current home and buy our new home. They were professional and personable, and always saw the process from our point of view. From preparing to sell to finding a new house to finding contractors for both houses, Koki and his team were a ‘one stop shop’ and went above and beyond to make the experience as smooth as possible. We could not have asked for more from Koki & Associates; they were knowledgeable, diligent, tireless, detail-oriented, and friendly. We would definitely use Koki and his team again and highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the DC area.

- Ryan & Natalie Quillian – U Street Corridor, DC Seller and Bethesda Buyer

Koki and his assistant, Lauren are just amazing! I sold my property in DC while I lived on the west coast. They pretty much did everything – renovations, fixing things, prepping for sale as well as the sale itself. They also helped a great deal with all the details of settlement.

- Anita Bhat – Dupont Circle, DC Seller

My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with CJ both in 2012 for the purchase of our first home, and in 2017 while both selling our previous house and moving to a new one. She is great to work with, and very knowledgeable of the real estate market in the DC/VA area. On numerous occasions, she went out of her way and changed her schedule in order to show us houses, or answer questions we may have. I would recommend CJ and her partners to anyone looking to buy and sell real estate in the DC Metropolitan area.

- Herb & Amanda Geary – Leesburg, VA Buyer and Seller

This having been our first home purchase, Melissa was above and beyond anything we expected in a realtor. Professionally, she was terrific. She knew her stuff inside and out, and we trusted her instincts implicitly. Personally, she brings a warmth and enjoyment to the process that only a few can. This is where she provides an exceptional and extraordinary experience. She’s personable, authentic, relaxed, and extremely easy to work with. She calmed our fears and made the home-buying journey pleasant and, at times, even fun! We were her clients most definitely, but she also treated us like friends, being upfront and candid and always giving us absolutely selfless advice. The completion of our purchase was truly bittersweet. We were thrilled to have found a home that was the perfect fit but saddened that our time with Melissa had come to a close. We couldn’t recommend her any more highly.

- Matt & Carissa – Alexandria, VA Buyer

CJ has helped me through the buying and selling process. She is so great at what she does and put my mind at ease through the stress of it all. CJ is genuine about wanting to help and works so hard to get the best deal for you. She is honest and quick to respond with any questions you may have. In the future when I am ready to buy again, I will only be contacting CJ because I trust her knowledge and decision-making completely.

- Felicia Strauss – Glenarden, MD Seller

I could not be happier with our choice to use Koki’s group when buying our home, and we were very lucky to have Melissa as our realtor. Melissa and the entire team were tireless in their search for us, vigilant about letting us know about new properties as soon as or before they got on the market, and seemed genuinely invested in us finding a great house. They gave expert advice on neighborhoods in the area, wrote competitive offers even on extremely short notice, and gave us a great recommendation on our lender. The DC market is extremely competitive, and I am so glad we had Melissa on our team. I would never consider using another realtor/group when buying in the DC area.
