What My Clients Say
Kara helped me find my first home, and my experience working with her was absolutely exceptional. As a first time homebuyer, I had tons of questions about the DC real estate market and the home buying process in general, and Kara walked me through it every step of the way. I also travel a lot for work, so finding time to look at properties was difficult – Kara sent me emails about properties that she thought fit what I was looking for so I was able to do lots of research online while I was out of town. After we found “the place”, Kara and Keller Williams continued to be fantastic to work with – from property search through the closing, Kara was fantastic and I’d highly recommend her to my own friends and family, and to everyone else.
Jim K., Logan Circle
I cannot imagine what it would have been like to go through the process of buying my first apartment without Kara’s patience, guidance and responsibility. I knew nothing about the process and I was not familiar with the US buying system as I spent most of my living abroad before I moved to Washington D.C. So I made lot of questions all the time. Kara listened patiently and made sure that all my questions were answered. I really appreciate her professionalism. All the difficulties that I encountered during this process were quickly resolved due to Kara’s advice and clarity response. I was very fortunate to have met her and would gladly and enthusiastically recommend her to anyone.
Marianela, Forest Hills
Kara was terrific to work with! Not only did she help us find a new home but she also sold my condo in six days. Kara was on top of all the latest listings and forwarded them as soon as they were available. She was patient and offered great advice when we needed it. Not only will we contact Kara again in the future but we’ve even referred some of our friends to her.
Farouk & Lane, Eckington
We couldn’t be happier that we found Kara to help us find our home! She patiently walked us through all the steps of the process and answered all our questions, and she always supported our decisions, no matter how many times we changed our minds about what we wanted. She is extremely well organized and clearly put in a lot of effort to make herself available when we needed her. We were especially grateful for her willingness to really understand what we were looking for and her ability to focus the search on places that would appeal to us. If you’re looking to buy or sell your home, we would absolutely recommend Kara. We will definitely be calling her whenever we next have the need!
Sarah & Chris DeLucia, Capitol Hill/H Street Corridor
Nik and I would like to personally thank you for a job well done in selling our condo! Due to the fact that we were relocating across the country complicated this process, we probably weren’t your easiest customers. Your patience throughout the entire process was much appreciated. Your excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism and dependability, made the sale process easier for us. We really appreciate the extra steps and recommendations you made to expedite the sale of our property. Having you keep an eye on the property, coordinate vendor visits, facilitate the closing process and taking care of all the little things, such as having fresh flowers presented at the open house really made this entire process smooth for us. Additionally, the regular communication, even while you were on vacation, was quite remarkable! You consistently went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend your services to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home. Again, thank you very much for all your hard work.
Michael Frazier & Nik Sharma, Mt. Vernon Square
My real estate agent, Kara Johnson, is fantastic and she specializes in properties in DC. She is also licensed in Maryland. She did a great job and I can't imagine having worked with anyone else. I told her exactly what I wanted, my budget, my preferred neighborhoods and then she did all of the searching for me. My time has been super limited recently so having someone take on that responsibility was great. Then once I was under contract, she made sure that everything happened by the deadlines and made sure that I was well informed about the full process. I only ended up looking at a few places and she did a great job finding me my current place. I can't recommend her highly enough, she is great at what she does.
Eloise, Mount Pleasant
Kara and Wayne were a great team to have on our side when we were buying our first home. Since this was our first time purchasing real estate, we naturally had a lot of questions and wanted to see everything. They were always knowledgeable about the properties and the neighborhoods and were always able to take us to the places next on our list. Because Kara and Wayne knew the market so well, they helped us find a steal - a beautiful two-bedroom condo with a yard (a rarity in DC). We would definitely recommend them to others.
Hannah and Olivier, Columbia Heights
Wayne and his daughter Kara are a great team to work with. They helped us find our new home, and skillfully negotiated a fantastic purchase price for us. We always felt that the Johnsons had our best interest in mind, and they represented those interests at every turn. Whenever we voiced a question or concern, Kara or Wayne responded almost immediately. We are so happy we chose to work with them, and we are just loving our new home!
Sarah and Jedd, Kalorama
Wayne and Kara were a pleasure to work with during my condo search. They were the consummate real estate professionals. They were immediately responsive anytime I had a question, request, or inquiry. Once when I saw a property I liked and there were no listings available in that building, Wayne personally researched the tax records of the building, sent notes to every owner, and found two interested sellers. All my friends know how much I enjoyed working with Wayne. I loved the thoughtful note he sent me a year after our sale, the diligence he employed in trying to find me the exact home I wanted. I even remember how his was the only open house I visited where he actually followed up with a personal note to each contact - that's why I decided to make him my agent! The service he provided was great and I loved how detail oriented and reliable he was to work with. I would definitely work with Wayne and Kara again.
