"As a doctor, my time is valuable and I rely on working with a team I can trust. Andrew and Jeff have consistently been warm, reliable and engaged with a thoughtful understanding that made both me and my family very comfortable throughout the process of finding a new home. I could not be happier with my choice to work with Andrew & Jeff and have recommended them without reservation to friends and colleagues who are looking to buy in the Washington, DC."
"We came to Andrew & Jeff with a vague mission of helping us find a large rental property to diversify our income. They knows the DC market like the back of their hand. They noticed a price drop on a property with great rental potential based on its proximity to the convention center. They met us quickly for a tour, helped us run the numbers and then had us under contract on the same day. Their professional negotiation skills and understanding of levers we could pull to be advantageous with the offer were outstanding. Andrew and Jeff takes a strategic lens to making sure they win for their buyers at every turn. During the closing process, they became a strategic adviser to us throughout closing. They are always one step ahead of their clients, which is hard to find."
"Andrew and Jeff are joys to work with. Before meeting them, we had worked with a number of other realtors, and I always felt like they were primarily focused on up selling us rather than listening to our needs. Andrew and Jeff came highly recommended to me by a good friend and were such a breath of fresh air. I was blown away by their complete mastery of the market and how easy it was to work with them. They is also extremely efficient and responsive--they always replies immediately to communications and easy to get in touch with. They will go out of their way to make the entire process as streamlined and tailored to your needs as possible. Andrew and Jeff were and continue to be an amazing resource and we have wholeheartedly recommended them to several of our friends and family members, which in my book is the strongest vote of confidence one can have."
"I strongly recommend Andrew & Jeff to help anyone with their next home purchase. They are extremely knowledgeable and ALWAYS had the patience to deal with my various, often times basic, questions as they would arise. Time and again I was impressed with their understanding of the DC market, constriction trends and dedication to me throughout the process. Of note, I also greatly appreciated their advice on the true condition of the homes we visited and what to be on the look out for in certain neighborhoods. I will be sure to use them for my next purchase."
"If you wish to feel comfortable and confident while making a real estate transaction, I strongly recommend that you engage Lockard + Smith. I have bought or sold 12 properties across my life -- and no agent that has represented me has been better than them. He embodies a rare mix of characteristics that I have come to value in a real estate agent: knowledge, diligence, and respect. From our first conversation I could tell that Jeff and Andrew knew the local (DC) market well. In short, I felt very confident that I could leave all details to them and that my interests were being represented fully. Were I to tackle another real estate project in this area, I would go to no other than Lockard + Smith."
"This group has exceeded all our expectations and has won us over as clients for as long as they are in the business. Buying a home can be a very stressful especially when you're in a competitive market like DC. We were competing against 2 other buyers, one of them had a lot more money, Andrew and Jeff went in person to represent my family and to fight for us. If it weren’t for them, we would never have gotten this home. Any realtor can write up an offer but only a few go that extra mile. Once we got the house, the team wasted no time and within a few days, our condo was on the market and we had multiple offers. When it was time to pick our buyer, Jeff and Andrew walked us through every option and gave us all the information and sound advice we needed to make the best choice. They are professional, knowledgeable, responsive, friendly and considerate. We were really lucky to have had the opportunity to work with them. They are truly the Ritz-Carlton of realtors."
"These gentleman are consummate professionals, with particular strengths in negotiating and in helping keep everyone on an even keel during the ups and downs of the buying/ selling process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, especially to anyone looking to buy/ sell in the Dupont/ Logan/ U-Street neighborhoods of Washington, DC."
"Jeff and Andrew are the finest realtors you could imagine working with. They found my wife and I the perfect home in Georgetown and negotiated a fantastic deal for us. During every step of the process, they provided us with the highest level of service. After working with many realtors in the past, my wife and I are convinced that you could not find a better real estate team. "
"I have been working with Jeff Lockard since we purchased our first home from him in 1998! Since then we have sold a half-dozen properties it’s her. Most recently, Jeff and Andrew help us successfully sell our home in Rock Creek Park. Threw it all, Jeff and Andrew have proven to be constant professionals as well as true friends. They know how to represent both buyers and sellers in a way I have never seen any other realtor do. They really care, which is a quality that is hard to come by. If there were more stars I would give it to them!"
