"Chris both helped me find and sell my apartment in DC. He is the immaculate professional - thoughtful, detail-oriented, an excellent advisor, and passionate about his work. I'd recommend him to anyone in a second (and I have!). I recommended Chris to a neighbor in the same building just a couple months ago and she loved working with him as much as I did. Thanks Chris!"
"Chris was our agent on four transactions spanning 12 years - buying and then selling two separate properties. We worked with Chris when the market was at its peak, and when the market was near bottom. He knew the market dynamics in and out for both environments. Each time, Chris shared advice and insight that we wouldn't have known, or known where to find, otherwise. In the best sense, Chris brings a fact-based, non-emotional approach to real estate transactions. His guidance is invaluable in determining one's overall priorities for a transaction, as well as the countless tactical decisions that must be made along the way to a sale (price changes, open house dates, counter-offers, etc.). He knew our objectives, and worked tirelessly towards achieving those. Our best interests were always being served. Chris is smart, trustworthy, and hardworking, and we wouldn't consider using or recommending another agent over him. For the last of the four transactions, we'd already moved far from the DC area, and Chris was instrumental is making sure our apartment was buyer-ready when we were 800 miles away. It's hard to overstate the value of peace of mind when you're managing a sale from a different time zone. We never had any doubts with Chris."

"My wife and I recently worked with Chris Jones (Georgetown) on a home purchase and sale of our recent home. We are not clear on what customer service awards exist within L&F but are quite certain that Chris deserves all of them. Chris' integrity, dedication, knowledge of the market, thoroughness, willingness to go the extra mile, patience, and a whole host of other positive attributes were greatly appreciated by us. He did everything from finalizing the prep for our home sale while we dealt with a major health issue with our son to identify issues with the buyer's contract (they mistakenly wrote a contract with no contingencies) to painstakingly take us through an 8 month home search - which doesn't give Chris credit for the 2 years we casually looked at houses before starting our search in earnest. He is everything we could hope for in a real estate agent and deserves recognition at L&F for the work he does for his clients. We finalized our 4th and 5th transaction with Chris this year and each one has been incredibly easy. We have recommended him to everyone we know who is in the market for a real estate agent without reservation and will continue to do so. Chris, if you are made aware of this web submission (and we hope you are), thank you again for all of the hard work. We can't imagine going through this process with anyone else."

"Look no further than Chris Jones. Chris Jones is the reason we were able to live in the neighborhood we are in today. He helped my mom buy and sell her house in Glover Park, and when it came time, he helped my husband and I buy our first house in Glover Park. He knows the area better than any other realtor, and found our house for us before it even went on the market. Thank goodness for that too, because if he didn't find it before it went to market, we wouldnt be living in it today. He was helpful to us from the very beginning when we didnt know exactly what we were looking for all the way until now, 6 months later after buying our house when we still have questions about the neigborhood. He goes above and beyond at every step of the way - providing valuable insight about each house we looked at (the history of the property/the comps/ideas on renovations and the value add/etc.) He is trustworthy and nice, and not salesy. He wants to understand what you want, and then he finds it. He does a good job at educating you through the process, which was very important to my husband and I as first time home buyers. He is patient too! All in all, my family and I have had amazing experiences with Chris - from him selling my moms house to us buying a house and beyond - he makes sure you are educated, comfortable and truly happy with the decision that you make. I wouldn't trust that anyone knows as much about being a realtor in Glover Park - if not all of DC area."
"Chris Jones of Long and Foster helped me sell my home and then buy a new one, and he deserves high praise. He's worked in the area for 16 years and has a good handle on market valuation; he has exceptional organizational skills, paying close attention to detail throughout the process. I credit Chris for the smooth and successful results I found in selling and then buying a home."
"We highly recommend Chris. He in extremely knowledgeable about the area, prices, and home quality. Chris is a 100% straight shooter. He will not give you a sales pitch, but be honest about the quality and worth of a home. He also was able to effectively postion us to have our offer accepted in a highly competitive market. Lastly, we wanted to mention that our relationship with Chris has not stopped since we purchased our house as he has continued to help us find contractors and answer other first-time homeowners questions."

"Chris was very helpful and professional. He showed us properties that were in our price range and that we were interested in. He was responsive to all of our questions throughout the process. He gave advice when asked. Upon our request, he even provided the names of workmen to us so that we could get work done on the property that we purchased. I would highly recommend Chris."
