Our team has over 80 years of combined real estate experience and we’ve had the pleasure of working with so many wonderful clients. Each client truly becomes part of our real estate family. Here is what some of our clients have had to say:
On your initial visit to our home, Joe Kurnos took the time to explain the whole process to us and you were always responsive to our calls when we had questions after our initial meeting. Your ability to deal with our new homebuilder on construction delays, we’re sure, helped expedite an already slow process. We wanted you to know how appreciative we are of your highly professional and attentive services. Without a doubt, when we are asked to recommend a Realtor in the area it’ll be Joe Kurnos!

I was a home buying newbie and Byron took me through it step by step. I was so impressed, I bought my next two homes with him as well. I give him 5 stars!

Finding a home in 2021 is an incredibly hard task. Joe Donegan was able to find us the best one on the market and we didn’t have to go above asking price! He was also able to negotiate some extras in the deal to help ease the process. Call Joe!
Byron is incredibly knowledgeable of the markets in in VA, MD and beyond. This helped us with our initial search as we looked for the right community. He was great during the process, communicated well, booked showings in minutes and worked so hard for us. We love our home and we know Byron got us the best price. He’s got the cool hand during negotiations and will not let you down.
- Kevin & Erin
We felt very lucky to have Joe Kurnos on our side throughout our home search. Joe is a great resource and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of his business.
- Jay & Judy
Joe Donegan was very helpful in my home search! He was very funny and helped answer many of my questions. He was easy to contact via phone or email. Highly recommend Joe to assist you with any real estate needs!
I’ve know Byron since 1997. He’s been my ‘go to’ guy for all my real estate needs and wouldn’t think of doing business with anyone else. He is patient, gives you sound advice, and works hard for you. I’ve recommended Byron to my friends and family and have heard nothing but the best. My husband and I just bought our home, thanks to him!
- Katherine & Dave
We came to you at an open house, never in our wildest dreams did we know how lucky we were. Our first impression of you was, even if we don’t get this house we want to work with Joe Kurnos. Your knowledge and friendly personality sold us immediately. Then we told you we wanted this house and YOU made it happen. From the initial start of the paperwork through closing itself, it was painless. And that meant the world to us. We also appreciated your constantly keeping us informed throughout the process. Your assistant was also awesome. So thanks to everyone, we would highly recommend you to our family and friends.
- Rick & Sherry
Joe Donegan is the best Realtor I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! The process of finding my current place was difficult, but he made it easy and less stressful with his sense of humor! If you need a Realtor that’ll be honest, funny, and makes the process less stressful, Joe is your guy!
Byron is an amazing Realtor. He helped us find our first rental when we moved to Northern Virginia and he helped us buy (and sell later) our first home there as well. I wish we could have brought him with us to help with our home search when we moved out of state! I highly recommend him to anyone in the DC area looking to buy or sell a home.
- Dana & Daniel
Relocating with 4 children, one can just imagine the stress. We were honored to have met Joe Kurnos. His main concern was us. He availed himself all hours of the day and extended himself beyond what anyone’s expectations could be. His on-target ability in assessing the value of the home is matched by his knowledge of the local school system. Joe has a keen sense of presenting search areas timely that not only fit your pocket, but your style. Purchasing a home is the most difficult decision one can make. Joe is one I will value always and I highly recommend him to all.
- Bill & Merrill
Joe Donegan is top notch guy and is very professional. He went above and beyond to make sure I was a happy client. You can trust that Joe’s experience will make every deal and transition as seamless as possible.
Joe K, Thank you for being an awesome Realtor and general hand holder extraordinaire!
- Gary & Lyn
What can we say? You did it again, Byron! You went above and beyond the call of being a Realtor. Once again, you surpassed our high expectations. You sold our house in three days and helped us purchase the new home we really wanted. We were smart to use as our Realtor three years ago and we brilliant to use you to sell and purchase a home this year. Thank you for your advise and extreme and sincere gratitude. You are great at what you do!
- Bryan & Dawn
Buying our first home was simple with the expert advice from Joe Kurnos. Every step of the process, from finding a house to completing the paperwork, was easy with Joe’s help. His excellent negotiating skills played a key role in getting us a super deal. Joe always made himself available and was a pleasure to work with. Without any hesitation, we would recommend Joe’s services to our friends.
- Shawn & Elizabeth
What can we say, but Joe Kurnos knows and has the right stuff. We will definitely refer him to anyone who needs the job done right.
- Erik & Jennifer
Your Team showed us it could be done and we thank you for that. When we first approached you about selling our home we had no idea if we could sell and buy a home that was a better fit for our family. You took the time to walk us through entire process and made sure we understood what we were up against. You showed us what we could and could not afford in order to make sure selling our home was the right decision. You were not about selling and then hoping it worked out. We needed educating and you did just that. Thanks for all you have done, we will see you again in a few years.
- Lucy & Mike
Byron, I wanted to thank you again for all your wonderful help and service in support of selling my home. The whole experience was wonderful and I know we are all happy with the end result (multiple contracts – wow!). Best wishes for a prosperous year. Thanks again for everything, Byron!
Joe helped me to find the perfect home…he helped me to buy that home by suggesting a mortgage company who gave me a great deal on a loan and by negotiating a sales contract that was favorable to me as the buyer. He made the entire process so easy.
Joe Kurnos is a first rate Realtor! He found the perfect house for my needs, negotiated many improvements with the builder and was instrumental in the close. He worked around difficult schedules and timeframes and was always very responsive. When it came to selling my home, Joe got top dollar for my home and went out of his way to make sure everything was just right. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone – and I have!
Byron, Danielle and I can’t begin to thank you for all that you have done for us over the past couple months. Our home is everything we had hoped it would be and more! Your professionalism, expertise, attention to detail and upbeat attitude truly made us enjoy our home-buying experience. We wish you all the best in the future!
- Eric & Danielle
The house we purchased through Joe was only our second but he proved his worth in every way. We had already selected a search area but Joe helped us to see outside the box when looking within our chosen region. Joe somehow manages to be low key and extremely helpful at the same time! I never felt pushed yet we managed to find a great home and get through closing with a minimum of missteps along the way. In a hot housing market, Joe Kurnos is the man to have in your corner.
- Chris & Elizabeth
Joe has been more a friend than a Realtor in our search for the perfect home. We know we can trust him completely which leaves us with total peace of mind.
- Erich & Cathy
When selling and buying a home, the choice of Realtor is a crucial factor. Having a Realtor who is professional, responsive and able to answer our questions is extremely important to us. We always know that we can rely on Joe Kurnos to meet our needs. Joe was instrumental in successfully selling our home for “top dollar”, finding a nearby short-term lease and negotiating with the builder of our new home. We’re glad we can always count on Joe and know that everything will be done right! He made our home selling and home buying easier and less stressful. On top of everything else, Joe is a pleasure to work with. We consider Joe both a business associate and a friend and we’re sure that anyone who works with him will feel the same.
- Anne & Dave
Dear Joe K – You are a great person. Thank you for helping us move. You are a great Realtor. And you fixed all of our problems. I hope I see you again.
- Cristen (Age 8)
Joe K. sold our house in one day and for significantly more than our asking price. His expertise transformed an event we were dreading into a positive experience. Joe provided excellent advice and guidance throughout the entire process; house preparation, pricing and all sales and closing operations proceeded smoothly and efficiently. Communication was excellent! Joe always informed us of actions, events and expectations and offered us advice, but he never wasted any of our time. We would recommend Joe as a real estate agent to anyone planning a home sale or purchase. Our experience was outstanding because of Joe’s involvement, influence, market and area knowledge, experience and expertise.
- Bill & Sandy
Joe was amazing during our home search!
