Testimonials


I used Greg as my realtor for selling my co-op in DC and simultaneously buying a house in Maryland. He was my realtor years ago when I bought the co-op and I absolutely chose to use him again when it was time to sell it. He is amazing. He is very responsive and prompt. He is organized and on top of everything even as things with the house moved very quickly. Its obvious that he has a lot of experience. He patiently answered every question I could think of and made sure I was well-prepared for every step. He was extremely flexible with my crazy work schedule. He explained the decisions he would make and why but ultimately let me make my own decisions which was important to me. I can’t imagine using any other realtor. He cares about his clients and it shows. Highly recommend.

The Tindale Team helped us buy our DC condo and then sell it six years later — wonderful experiences both times! In addition to being friendly, upbeat and very efficient, Greg has an intimate knowledge of up-to-the-minute real estate trends in the area, extending down to the details of individual buildings in different neighborhoods. We especially appreciated the clear and easy communication we had throughout the process — hard to imagine how things could have gone more smoothly!

Chuck and Maria K. – Mt. Pleasant, DC Buyers and Sellers

 

Greg helped us find our dream home – and sell our condo! He even coordinated the closing of  our condo and our new house on the same day. He made this impossible task seem easy. We enjoyed the entire experience without feeling rushed or stressed.

Justine and Ryan C. – Rhode Island Ave NE, DC Buyer and Seller, Montgomery Village, MD Buyers

 

I bought my first home a month ago, and I’m so glad I had Greg helping me with the process.  I wanted to move ASAP and he was able to make that happen faster than I could have imagined. Within 8 days of meeting him, I was under contract for a condo that I loved!  There were 2 other offers, but mine won because I escalated a little higher.  Greg’s advice on that issue made all the difference.  He also had great recommendations about the pre-inspection and choosing a mortgage lender; it made my offer more attractive and allowed me to close quickly.  In addition to being knowledgeable about the market, Greg was pleasant to work with and very responsive to my calls/e-mails.  I’m extremely happy with my new place, and I will definitely work with Greg in the future.

Jessica L. – Columbia Heights and U St NW, DC Buyer

 

The attention to detail and hands-on involvement each step of the way was very helpful to me as a first time home buyer who wasn’t sure what to expect. Additionally, the quick responses I got via email each time I had a question, and Greg’s willingness to dive in and consult others (electrician) or go above and beyond to get in touch with the co-op board was wonderful.

He was recommended to me by two friends who had recently used him to purchase their 1st condos, and I’ve already referred two other friends to him. That in itself says so much about how helpful he was during the entire process!

Chana E. Van Ness, DC Buyer

 

What separates Greg from other real estate agents I’ve worked with is his ability to speak candidly and honestly, as a friend, to help make an informed decision about the buying process. I felt as though through the entire process I was receiving advice from an unbiased friend, which to me is far more important than working with someone simply telling you what you want to hear. Greg provided honest advice and guidance that addressed what we were specifically looking for in a home. I think this is the most important service a dedicated agent can provide

Cris and Kate M. – Petworth, DC Buyers

 

We are very satisfied.  It’s always nice to work with someone who understands what you’re looking for and has your best interests in mind.  Greg told us that he wouldn’t sell us a house that he wouldn’t want to live in himself, and I think that’s true.

Kartik and Sravya V. – Dupont Circle Buyers and Sellers, Bloomingdale, DC Buyers

 

Greg did extremely well picking out properties, making himself available at odd hours to complete paperwork, discuss, view more properties. Especially liked that he followed up with the mortgage and other people for me. This made the process much easier.

Hillah C. – McLean Gardens, DC Buyer

 

Greg and Christina provided exceptionally personalized service and infused the experience of selling our home with warmth and high attention to detail.  The quality of the virtual tour was superb (our house never looked so good!), and they excelled at providing guidance during the negotiation process as well. From their initial presentation through closing, they exuded intelligence and a passionate commitment to making the process as positive as possible for all involved.  Greg and Christina are a fabulous team with complementary strengths. They really make you feel taken care of during the process of selling your home. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Amanda and Jordan H. – Adams Morgan, DC Sellers

 

Greg provided excellent service throughout the buying process. As I am a first time homeowner, he explained each step to me clearly, and provided just the right amount of follow up to ensure everything for the loan was on track up to the closing date. He successfully negotiated for the vast majority of desired changes to be made to the property post-inspection. He also navigated a prolonged condo conversion process, long past expected closing. He diligently followed up with the sellers agent and title company,  convinced the lender to remain in the deal, and ensured the buyer was adequately compensated for the delays. I heard from other buyers in the unit that they were thankful that Greg negotiated per diem, and because of him they were able to receive it as well.

Greg did extremely well at explaining processes to an anxious first timer, keeping a positive attitude through the prolonged closing, and working with the lender to create solidarity in pushing the process forward. He was also able to get a POA drawn up free of charge while I was traveling during settlement.

Lauren R. – Rhode Island Ave NE, DC Buyer

 

Greg and I worked together when I bought my first home in 2014 and to say he was a helpful is an understatement. Greg made a total effort to keep me informed of housing that fit my criteria, while not pressuring movement from a sales perspective. He coached me through the process and provided great things to consider that I wouldn’t have come up with otherwise. I highly recommend Greg to everyone from the first time home buyer to a seasoned real estate investor.

Phil B. Rockville Buyer

 

After meeting with three different realtors, we decided to go with Greg for our condo sale and were really happy that we did. Greg was super easy to work with, well organized, and always on the ball, especially when we were dropping it. He did a great job of figuring out the minimal amount of effort required to get the place ready for sale and took the extra time to make it happen given that we didn’t live in the area. His hard work resulted in a final sale over the asking price. If you are looking to sell or buy, Greg will most certainly not let you down.

Razili D. – Dupont Circle, DC Buyer

 

Greg helped me find my first house in 2008, and then helped my wife and I sell it last in April 2014.  With the changes in the housing market since I bought that house, I wasn’t confident that we could even sell it.  I called Greg who came over and walked us through the process.  We were blown away by the professionalism and first class product he offers.  Greg has always been easy to work with, and these extras were fantastic.

When we first set out to buy our next house, Greg described the best case scenario. We were excited but had doubts that anyone could deliver that.  Well, he didn’t disappoint us. Within a week of listing our house, we had a contract on it. One month later we closed on that home as well as our new home.  The process was fraught with peril; home inspections, contingencies and all the other traps we could have fallen into.  Greg calmly led us through all that with expertise and excellent advice based on the market and his years of experience.  We could not be any happier with the outcome.

Ethan and Amy G. – Riverdale, MD Buyer and Seller, Odenton, MD Buyers

 

I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and I that is the direct result of good planning from the very beginning.  Early in the process Greg had me fill out a two-column worksheet listing all my needs and wants in a new home.  I think this exercise was invaluable for two reasons:  first, it ensured that Greg was only going to show me homes that reflected most of my needs/wants; and second, it allowed me to quantify the attributes of each location in a comparative way and pick the place that best met my goals.

I think Greg shined at the beginning and the end of the process.  I was rather naïve to the whole home-buying process and Greg was very good at explaining in an easy to understand way, how everything worked.  He gave me the confidence at the very beginning that I was working with a professional that was interested in making me comfortable through the home buying process.  Similarly, at the end of the process, Greg was great in coordinating with the lender, settlement attorney, and the seller’s agent to negotiate a settlement structure that met my best interests.

Ari S. Capitol Hill Buyer

 

Greg was incredibly responsive to all questions/calls/emails. He was able to take charge when needed and push the process forward in a pleasant way without adding more stress to a potentially stressful experience. I appreciated the weekly email check-ins. Thank you for making this a fun, easy, fairly stress-free experience!

Liz T. – Van Ness, DC Buyer

 

I thought that Greg did a great job with communicating and being accessible. Buying a home feels like such an abstract difficult thing to do, and Greg broke it down so that it felt possible. He was also extremely responsive to emails and phone calls when I had questions or concerns.

Nikki S. – Glover Park, DC Buyer

 

Advocating for us, communicating with other real estate agents, answering all of our questions in an honest and detailed manner, being extremely responsive and accommodating, he was also really knowledgeable about the process of making an offer. We had a great experience. He was amazing.

Hasan and Aja Z. – Rockville, MD Buyers

 

Greg assisted us to take one of the most stressful steps in our lifetime and did so with a professional yet extremely friendly demeanor. At no point in time did we ever feel pressured during the home search nor rushed. The meet and greet/informational meeting at the beginning of our home buying process was extremely informative and helpful. We were impressed how much Greg understood our particular situation, wants, and needs enough to make helpful suggestions at each property we considered.  We would like to thank Greg and Greenline Real Estate for their exceptional service and thank them for helping us buy our first home!

Russell and Ashley Reil, Riggs Park, DC Buyers

 

I’ve been enjoying my first home ownership experience and it’s been fun and challenging and rewarding too! I very much appreciated your honesty and help, I would have been lost without you.

Aaron C. – Capitol Hill Buyer

 

We’re in Boston. We purchased a condo up here last month, and we kept wishing you did real estate up here. It’s amazing how much the process differs based on location, and it never ceases to amaze me how few good realtors there are. You certainly have raised the bar!

Mike and Marilyn R. – Eckington, DC buyer, Kingman Park, DC buyer

 

My husband and I used the Tindale Team when we were on the search our first home.  It was a tricky situation, we didn’t live in the area that we wanted to buy at all, 4 hours away. Greg and Christina made the extra effort and did everything they could to accommodate our situation. They were  available on the weekends and during the week to answer any questions, concerns that we had as we went through the home buying process. They made sure that we understood all the contracts and  what we were needed to sign, since this was our first home we did not have any prior experience in doing this. It was so easy to work with them. They made buying our first home a really exciting and painless process. I would highly recommend using them when buying or selling a home/condo/property. I can’t wait to use them to buy our first vacation home!

Johnny and Lauren W. – Westminster, MD Buyers

 

My uncle is a Realtor in PA and did some research to find us the right match in Washington, DC. He couldn’t have picked a better fit for us!

Greg & Christina showed us many great condos. It was nice to be in a position of having multiple units to choose from. Every place they showed us met our style & price range. Also, they put together our offer quickly and continuously followed up with the seller’s agent to keep us informed. Even after we closed, they were helpful with other requests/questions regarding our new condo.

With many external factors that were beyond our control, Greg & Christina responded to all of our needs as the situation changed. They were able to handle the unexpected and to keep us informed about what was ahead.

We would definitely recommend Greg & Christina to anyone we know that is looking to buy a home in DC. They made the home search an enjoyable experience. The first day we met with Greg he told us that searching for a home should be fun, and he definitely lived up to his statement!

We closed on our unit in October of 2009 and we still regularly stay in touch with Greg and Christina!

Dan and Jayana G. – Logan Circle, DC Buyers and Sellers, Arlington, VA Buyers

The Tindale Real Estate team is excellent! Christina went above and beyond in making sure that my home buying process went smoothly. Christina took extra time to make sure I understood every step along the way, and to ensure that I felt comfortable with my decision.

Greg and Christina are very knowledgeable about the communities and housing trends in Washington, DC. Christina took me to a number of fantastic properties before we found the perfect one. From the home search, to the negotiations, to the final closing, Christina was a supportive partner to me. On a personal level, Christina is a considerate person with strong values. She cares about her community and her environment, and treats her professional and personal associations with kindness and respect. I look forward to staying in touch with Greg and Christina, and to working with them again in the future.

Chrissy H. – Columbia Heights, DC Buyer and Seller

 

It’s been over a month since Justin and I bought our first place and I can’t believe I haven’t given full props to Greg, Christina, and even Mina–the whole Tindale Team.  Here’s my moment to give credit where credit is due!  

Last summer, we were looking for a new realtor and Justin did a Yelp search for realtors and came across the Tindale Team of Hounshell Realty.  We met up with Greg and Christina the next day, and we were able to find many common connections (both Justin and Greg played rugby; Greg, Christina and I all went to the University of Maryland–Go Terps!).  Both Greg and Christina had that ability of making you feel comfortable at a very stressful, yet exciting time.  

The following weekend Christina and Mina took us out to check out some homes.  Christina asked us what Starbucks beverages we liked, and when we met up at the first location there were two iced café Americanos waiting for us in the back seat.  How thoughtful!

As they took us place-to-place, Christina gave us her honest opinions on each place we toured.  She pointed out smells and potential problems that we should know about.  We appreciated her honesty.  As a matter of fact, it was on that very weekend we found our home.  She thought our house had good bones and a lot of potential…and we couldn’t have agreed with her more!

Shortly thereafter, Greg started discussing the offer price with us.  We knew the house was way overpriced, but we didn’t know what to offer.  This is the part where Greg’s business savvy, and knowledge of the real estate market really shined through.    Now, I don’t know what the “standard” is in initial offers, but the offer price Greg suggested was very aggressive.  Justin and I were more than satisfied with that number, but we weren’t sure what the sellers would think.  After Greg pointed out the length of time that the house had been on the market, its current condition, and the comparables, I realized that his suggestion was more than justified.

After Greg communicated these points to the sellers, they counter-offered with a price only slightly above what he suggested.  We gladly took it, also using the extra money we saved to renovate the kitchen.  We wouldn’t have had that extra money if it weren’t for Greg’s negotiation skills!

The home buying process was very stressful for us, and it helped that we were able to vent our frustrations to Greg and Christina, and get some reassurance that everything will work out.  Their positivity really helped us through the process, especially when our house hunt didn’t look so good prior to meeting them.  Greg and Christina were very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions, issues, and worries.  That put us at ease because we knew we had someone there watching out after us, as well as a resource we could turn to.  If you’re looking for a realtor, I highly recommend them!

Justin and Joanne B. – Capitol Hill, DC Buyers and Sellers, Rockville, MD Buyers

 

We just closed on our first house and it wouldn’t have been possible without Greg and Christina

A big asset to us was the advice that Greg and Christina were able to provide for the whole process. Finding the right home and making the decision to put in an offer was a difficult one for us, and they were happy to provide all of the advice and support that we needed. We were in a competitive bidding situation and Greg took the extra time to present our bid to strengthen our offer and we really appreciated this.

We also felt that it was very easy to get in touch with them. We worked more closely with Greg for the offer and contracts, but there were many aspects of the home buying process that were time sensitive, so it was great that he responded quickly to email and phone calls.

Margaret and Julian W. – Kensington, MD Buyers, Bethesda, MD Sellers

 

I am EXTREMELY satisfied w/the results of my home purchase, and EXTREMELY satisfied w/the service that was provided to me. Hands down I give the services I received a 5+++. I found the teaming of Greg & Christina to be very beneficial, having two sets of eyes and opinions, allowed them both to provide me useful advice and found properties that suited my requests. If it hadn’t been for Christina slightly expanding my price bracket I wouldn’t have found my condo that I absolutely LOVE. I would, without a doubt, recommend Greg & Christina to friends and/or family members in the market for buying and/or selling property. I particularly appreciated the time both took to spend w/me prior to starting my search. It allowed me to get to know them on a personal level and vice versa. I began my realty search over a year ago, and did not enjoy my first Realtor experience. Greg & Christina turned my opinion around and made the entire process enjoyable and stress-free.

Danielle L. – Columbia Heights, DC Buyer

 

Thank you for your time, your efforts, your patience and most of all, thank you for providing such an amazing support with one of the most significant steps in life! You have made it really a pleasant experience and definitely less stressful then we thought it would be.

We are more than satisfied. We feel we received a very professional and personal service, which helped us a lot in our major step to purchase our first apartment.

Oz and Naama M. – Georgetown, DC Buyers

 

Greg and Christina worked tremendously well as a team, and I found this to be the single most valuable aspect of working with them. They did an excellent job of blending complete professionalism with a low-key attitude and creating a relaxed environment.  I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the DC area.

Martha N. – Woodley Park, DC Buyer

 

Greg and Christina were integral to securing our home. They built a relationship with the listing agent and convinced him that my husband and I were the “right” buyers for this home. They worked tirelessly to check in with our mortgage lender throughout the process and kept us informed of any issues. Thankfully, they have calming personalities that helped us stay relaxed throughout the process. Working with them was an excellent experience and we even referred them to our friend who just bought a condo with them!

Josh and Alicyn B. – H St NE, DC Buyers

 

Greg Tindale is an excellent Realtor. Greg is a savvy professional, who is both a shrewd negotiator as well as an expert on the DC area real estate market.

I closed on my first home today, and am proud to report Greg was a true asset to the buying process. I was very appreciative that Greg’s pre work led to virtually every home I visited being pretty close to what I was looking for. The last thing you want when buying a property is having your time wasted looking at places that barely (or do not at all) fit your search parameters. Greg’s selection of homes to look at all fit my price range, location, and wants. In the end I found an awesome place, and the search process was as painless as can be. Greg was also very knowledgeable about the local market when it came time to prepare an offer. We looked very closely at some comps and ultimately reached a very aggressive and fair price for my first home. It is helpful to work with someone who is truly an expert on the local market. I also appreciated that Greg checks in on every step of the process, including a few weeks after we had a contract, but had yet to go to settlement.

I recommend Greg without reservation to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, ultra-professional, and fun real estate agent.

Brendan D. – Kensington, MD Buyer

 

The key for me was that Greg was both very easy to work with and very professional. This was my first home purchase, but I never felt nervous about the details because I knew that not only had Greg looked into them, but that he had my interests in mind when doing so.

Mike C. – Federal Hill, Baltimore Buyer

 

Greg and Christina were really professional, and easy to get along with. As first-time homebuyers, we were grateful for their down-to-earth attitude and friendliness (especially on our many car trips to and from Baltimore!) They did a great job of relating to our lifestyle and interests, and  translated that into helping us find the perfect home. Thanks guys!

Blake and Kristen – Hampden, Baltimore Buyers

 

I worked with Greg Tindale when I purchased my first home in Silver Spring in April of 2008. Greg worked with me to find the exact house, in the exact neighborhood, for months before we finally found “The One.” I would highly recommend Greg as a realtor because my experience with him was very  positive; he was very straightforward about the process, his responsiveness to my inqueries were very fast and he was able to close on the property with no problems. I have referred Greg to all of my friends and we have all shared the same positive experience. Even though I have no plans on moving from my home, Greg is the first and only person I would call if I were to sell my home and find another.

Paul G. – Silver Spring Buyer

 

We really appreciated the time Greg and Christina spent educating us on the process of buying our first home. It really helped ‘demystify’ things and provide a sense of comfort around what is, in all reality, and extremely complicated and potentially scary process.

Ben and Jen D. – Silver Spring Home Buyers

 

 

We were very impressed by Greg and Christina’s thorough professionalism — and charmed by their enthusiasm and friendliness!  Even though Greg and Christina were our agents for purchasing a home in DC, when we ran into some snags selling our house in Texas they stepped right up to help clarify the situation.  They offered some unexpected but much appreciated help at a great distance.  The lender referrals they gave us were also very efficient.   It’s hard to imagine an improvement [in their service]– they surpassed our expectations.

Chuck and Maria K. – Mt. Pleasant, DC Buyers

 

Guys, all we can say is ‘WOW!’  If there was an award for “best use of an hour” or “best first impression” you guys would take the cake!  We both walked away from today’s consultation very thrilled to have found you and felt a huge sigh of confidence and empowerment.”

Erin P. Arlington, VA Buyer

 

Christina and Greg are amazing! I was a first-time buyer and I can’t imagine having gone through the process with anyone else. They were incredibly patient and were flexible with my crazy work schedule. They are smart, professional, and know both the area and real estate well. They explained everything to me and never acted like my questions were silly. They did a great job of giving me all the information and their input but allowing me to make the decisions. They kept me informed and updated throughout the process. They were prompt and on top of everything. It felt like a partnership. They made the entire process of buying my first place fun and as stress-free as possible. They definitely had my best interest in mind and treated me with respect and kindness. I can’t say enough good things. They are a great team and I recommend them without a doubt to everyone in the area!!
