"I can't say enough good things about Andrew. We worked with him twice over the 5 years one to buy a condo and then 5 years later to sell the same condo. He has been super responsive very reliable and very professional. Andrew made the process super easy for us he helped us with selling our furniture, staging the place and gave us great advice with vendors to prepare the place for sale. Everything went very smoothly and I would like to work with him in the future."
"I have known Jeff Lockard professionally and personally for nearly 20 years. In the upper echelon of the Washington DC real estate community, Jeff and his team of committed professionals provide unparalleled service based on a simple philosophy of maximizing value for clients. Jeff listens more than he talks, provides sound and informed strategic direction to buyers and sellers, and completes transactions faster and of greater benefit to his clients than any of his peers. Most recently, Jeff and his team managed a sale for us that established a new and yet unmatched benchmark for dollars per square foot in the neighborhood. Within two days of an open house, we entertained five cash offers that far exceeded the asking price. Anyone seeking trusted professionals to manage a turnkey process should look no further than Lockard + Smith for their next transaction. On a more personal note, Jeff has become a member of our family, a beloved uncle to our girls, and a frequent and much sought after guest at family gatherings. I wholeheartedly recommend Lockard + Smith for anyone navigating the DC real estate market."
" I have been working with Jeff for over 10 years. His knowledge of the DC market is excellent, and he’s super easy to work with and has great attention to detail. He’s helped me buy and sell multiple properties in DC with great success. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Lockard + Smith."
"Jeff Lockard is a superb realtor. He looks at each property as unique and highlights all the benefits of living there. His knowledge of the real estate market is unparalleled. He is also excellent at communicating with clients so that they know he is working to make the best possible transaction. My husband and I worked with him on selling our coop in DC and we were impressed with his knowledge and careful planning of our open house and advertising the property. Best of all, Jeff is a man of integrity and his kindness makes working with him a joy. We were actually sad to have to say goodbye to him when we sold our home! If we decide to buy a property in DC again, Jeff is the only realtor we would call."
"We knew Jeff was the best in the business from working with him to purchase our condo in 2013. When we decided that we wanted more space before Amazon arrived in the adjacent neighborhood, we knew exactly who to call. We could not have been in better hands. Even going on the market during the winter, we had multiple offers on our condo within five days. A few weeks later, we were under contract on a beautiful home in Alexandria. Jeff even took time out of his birthday weekend to make sure the offer was in quickly. Buying a home and moving can be incredibly stressful and we always felt like we were his only clients. We feel incredibly lucky to have had Jeff looking out for us and our happiness every step of the way."
"Andrew has resounding commitment to his clients during their home buying and/or selling process. His knowledge of the market and ability to understand clients and sellers is unmatched. Home buying is a very personal process and Lockard + Smith understands that."
"Andrew Smith is a consummate professional who always delivers excellent service. He has excellent taste, deep experience, and always goes the extra mile. Can not recommend more highly!"
"Andrew and Jeff are excellent. As a first time homebuyer, I was very wary of the process and they walked me through it all! My wants developed overtime as I saw more properties and they were able to adapt and help find the perfect spot without ever making me feel pressured to buy something that wasn’t a good fit. You will be hard pressed to find better guides in your home buying journey!!!!!"
"Jeff Lockard is a pleasure to work with and he has actual integrity (so rare these days!). Jeff helped us purchase our first condo in Logan Circle and then, five years later, to sell it and buy a house (for our growing family) in Kalorama. He knows real estate inside and out. We've been really happy to have Jeff and his team on our side and wouldn't work with anyone else in this town."
"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!"
