What Lewis’s Clients are saying

Our experience with Lewis is the best experience we have ever had with a realtor, hands down. His local knowledge (Silver Spring, MD and environs) is unparalleled including post-purchase information like lawn care, tree trimming, plumbing - you name the issue, Lewis knows a reputable person/business to take care of it. Lewis' eye for detail is impeccable and he is capable of pointing out pros/cons of a home that you would have never even noticed. With cons, he is quick to suggest any of a number of solutions (with ball park cost) including potential DIY. Lewis is quite personable - I very much enjoyed our "between house" conversations in the car. We didn't negotiate our offer but Lewis did provide a number of suggestions to strengthen our offer which in the end led to acceptance. Lewis efficiently and swiftly guided us through the home buying process (we closed 21 days after our offer was accepted) and he graciously fielded our barrage of questions along the way. We never felt lost along the way or that anything had gone unanswered. We would highly recommend Lewis as a buyer's agent.

Lewis was great to work with. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to buying a home. He took all our wants/needs (and of course budget) and found houses that worked for us. He worked with our schedule, and was very understanding of the time constraints having a 1 year old tag-along. Lewis helped us pursue the house of our dreams, even after it was taken off the market for repairs. He followed up with not only the listing agent, but also the company that performed the repairs to ensure that we were getting the whole story. We would highly recommend Lewis, and Donna KERR Group Real Estate Services for your next home.
Peter and Jennifer Flood
Lewis recently helped my husband and me purchase a home in Rockville and it was a wonderful experience. He is very familiar with Montgomery County and was able to answer all of our questions. Lewis was responsive to our emails and able to work with our schedules to show us all of the houses we were interested in. We were first time home buyers and he was very patient and helpful as he walked us through the entire process of putting in offers, choosing a mortgage company and a home inspector, and finally closing on our house. We always felt confident that he was giving us good advice and we never felt that he was trying to sell us on something we weren't interested in. Finally, Lewis is a master electrician and generally very knowledgeable about home construction and we found this very helpful as we walked through different houses with him.
Lisa Stevens and Damion Mullins
Lewis was excellent! He always responded to us almost immediately, even on weekends and when he was sick! He knew the area really well and had very helpful insights about home construction as we walked through homes. He was also just friendly and never pressured us. His knowledge and patience made working with him very enjoyable
Clarissa Kornell
Lewis gave us excellent advice regarding preparing our house for the market and pricing. We were under contract at full price within 6 days of going on market. He also was a great buyer's agent. With his guidance, we were able to put in a successful bid in a multi-bid situation. He was at all times pleasant, knowledgeable, professional, and responsive.
Christine Wellons
Lewis made our house search fun AND educational. A huge plus in working with Lewis is his knowledge of home construction, inside and out. We were primarily looking at older homes and he would routinely point out positive and (potentially) negative aspects of the houses we looked at. He could also estimate on the fly what it would cost to do certain repairs or renovations. We had a great time looking at houses and when we found one we wanted to buy, he helped us put together a winning offer (in a multiple offer situation) and resolve any issues prior to closing. His attention to detail is also superlative, which is exactly what you need in someone drafting a contract for the largest purchase of your life.
The Freedman/Pollack Family
Lewis always responded to my questions and concerns within about an hour or less and was always cheerful and upbeat with ideas and fall back positions so that I am now in a house that I am crazy about and have already made friends with the great neighbors and am invited to be in the pool club and so on.. thanks to Lewis finding me the house, the financing and the energy to make it happen. He is a great real estate agent.
Margaret Harris
I cannot describe how helpful Lewis was. We met Lewis when he was showing us a house and could tell immediately that this was the guy we wanted to work with. Lewis immediately made us feel at ease and told us what we needed to do. He walked us through the whole process, easing our anxiety along the way. Even through there were multiple offers on the table when we put in our offer, due to his ability to send the sellers a wonderfully crafted letter, we won and closed on our dream house. Lewis answered all and every one of our questions that we had during the process, no matter how big or small the question was and he responded quickly. He kept us focused during the home buying process, but never overwhelmed. I would highly recommend Lewis to any one who is looking to purchase a house. Lewis is truly a real down to earth guy who still has the best interest of his clients in mind and truly wants to help you find your prefect house. In the cutthroat world of real estate a guy like Lewis is very rare
