Printable Testimonials
Working with Traudel and Justin was definitely the best condo-shopping experience I could have asked for. They were both knowledgeable, amiable, assertive, personable, and professional. Traudel has so much experience working in DC, and Justin is one of the hardest-working young professionals I've met. I admit, I had a laundry list of amenities that I wanted included in my new home, and however improbable, they found me my dream home. Not only that, we were able to go from looking to closing in 2 months (they also got me the highest sales price for selling my 1-BR coop in the history of my building, which is impressive in and of itself). In a real estate market as competitive as DC can be, it's amazing to have two people on your side that are willing to do whatever it takes to close the deal in a way that benefits both buyer and seller. I would definitely want Traudel and Justin sitting on my side of the table at closing again and will ask them to do so when I decide to move on and up in my next home-owning endeavor.

Buyer, 910 M ST NW #1002

We had an excellent experience with Justin and Traudel! From start to finish, they were kind, attentive, and well-prepared. We primarily worked with Justin and were incredibly impressed with how thorough and hard-working he is. He took the time to carefully and attentively walk us through each step of the process, and let us set the pace of our housing search. He and Traudel are very knowledgeable about the DC real estate market, and it's very likely that without their expertise and focus we would have not been successful in purchasing our new home! They made us feel like their top priority and were great advocates — and what's more impressive is that their knowledge and skill exist in combination with a real authenticity and honesty. Highly, highly recommended!

Buyers, 3060 16th Street, NW #301

Traudel Lange and her team worked tirelessly to help us find our home in Capitol Hill and to sell our co-op in Dupont Circle. Traudel went above and beyond at every single step—taking the time in the beginning to understand what we wanted, staying in close touch with us about new listings, and working quickly and effortlessly to put together our offer. She made sure we had every advantage and gave us invaluable advice along the way to ensure that our offer was as competitive as possible. When it came time to sell our apartment, Traudel and Justin DiFranco worked quickly to get our apartment ready and made it seem like the easiest thing in the world to sell an apartment during election season, and right before the holidays. Thanks to their extraordinarily wise judgment in all matters, the apartment sold in a matter of days. We cannot recommend them highly enough—they are consummate professionals and a joy to work with.

To be completely honest, Traudel and Justin were absolutely amazing! This was my first time buying a home, so I was hoping to find a team who could not only provide me with valuable insight on the DC market but also a team who could relate to what I was going through as a first-time home buyer. My expectations were met and then some. These two form a dynamic team that I believe will not disappoint any client. They have mastered the art of learning how to relate to their clients on a personal, yet professional, level. What I liked best about Justin and Traudel is that they made sure you knew that it wasn't about them, it was about YOU and that they were here to give you want you wanted, no matter how hard or how long it took. And they did exactly that! These two worked around the clock to get me the best deal for exactly what I was looking for. Their knowledge of the market is quite extensive, and they negotiated a deal in a very competitive market that got me the house I wanted for the price I was willing to pay. More importantly, throughout the entire process I never felt like I was working with real estate agents, I felt like I was working with two people who cared about what was best for me. I will undoubtedly be using Justin and Traudel in the future when I go to sell my house and buy another one.

Buyer, 15 Grant Circle NW #1

I worked with Traudel Lange and Justin DiFranco to sell my Mount Pleasant single family property in the summer of 2016. Both Traudel and Justin were extremely knowledgeable throughout the process and provided great insight as to pricing the property to get the most interest and the best possible offers. Throughout the entire process they were very responsive to all of my calls and emails and made sure to answer all of my questions thoroughly and clearly. When it came time to negotiate with prospective buyers, they again proved their expertise and were able to negotiate a sales price way over asking and far exceeding our expectations. They remained engaged and responsive throughout the entire process, all the way up to closing and beyond. I would highly recommend Traudel and Justin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the DC area.

Seller, 3302 19th Street, NW

Traudel was extremely efficient and professional and has an intimate knowledge of what it takes to sell upper-bracket homes like ours. She was able to negotiate all the details involved in the contract and closing very effectively. Given the sluggish state of the market this year, it was stressful to be a seller and Traudel and her associate Justin reacted to all situations in a calm, positive and professional manner that we believe led to the positive outcome. She provided detailed analyses and numbers on comparable listings on a regular basis to substantiate her advice on pricing as the time went on. We have no hesitation in referring Traudel and her team to anyone who has a home to sell. From our perspective, retaining Traudel's services was the best decision we made in selling our home

Traudel and Justin were the bright spots in my new home search! As a first-time home buyer, they explained all the details I needed to make informed decisions. They responded to any questions I had, thoroughly and instantly. They dealt with a difficult lender situation and calmed any nerves the seller may have had, which provided me an effortless experience! Home-buying should be fun and exciting, Traudel and Justin created a fantastic experience with their enthusiasm for the process, their professionalism, and their knowledge, all of which provided me with significant confidence in my purchase!! I would highly recommend this fantastic team to anyone!!

Buyer, 1333 Euclid St NW

We could not be more delighted with Justin and Traudel ... and that they asked us to comment on our experience. From the very beginning, the team outlined the process in detail: they provided us industry and neighborhood data (both historic and current), sketched out proposed timelines for our consideration of our listing, and gave us a comprehensive "punch list" of the necessary steps in order to realize our goals. The go-to-market strategy was executed flawlessly, and within a week we had multiple offers. The negotiations between the several offers produced a material uptick to the list price, and we were very pleased with the result. Of considerable note, Justin and Traudel kept us informed and on track throughout the settlement period. We closed on the day scheduled without a hitch. Justin and Traudel will handle your most exacting needs. Do yourself a favor and call them today!

Best,

We were extremely pleased with Traudel Lange and Justin DiFranco working together as a real estate team. Traudel’s long-time experience as a realtor together with her knowledge of the local market and her sense of timing, in addition to her negotiating skill, is second to none. Living out of town at the time, we depended on her and Justin’s assistance in getting the house ready for showing as well as taking care of the flaws the inspector found, always keeping us informed along the way. Her warm and friendly demeanor together with her thoroughness made the house sale a positive experience. We highly recommend her.

Sellers, 10401 Windsor View Drive

We gave Traudel a tough job: selling our three-year-old townhome in a less-than-optimal location. Traudel worked very diligently, tirelessly, and still managed to sell the house in prudential time. Throughout the process we welcomed and followed her advice; she was not only very professional, but very gracious. As we moved out of the US, she kept helping us overseeing last-minute house repairs. As I wrote her at the time in a thank you note . . . she went “beyond the call of duty.” For all of that we strongly, and without any reservation, recommend her (and her associate Justin DiFranco) if you need to sell or buy a house.

Jose and Mirna

We had the strong and steady guidance of Traudel Lange and Justin DiFranco behind us and beside us as we hunted for the perfect house for our family. We could not have asked for a better and a more professional team. We recommend them highly.

After getting to know what our family's needs were, our tastes and our lifestyle choices, Traudel showed us only the houses that she knew held potential. We greatly appreciated having her sort through the listings for us instead of trying to show us everything out there as other realtors have done in the past. We were on a tight time frame and Traudel ensured that we moved quickly but in a determined manner through new listings. We felt as though we were her top-most priority—thank you, Traudel!

Traudel was also extremely helpful in helping manage our expectations and the expectations of potential sellers in terms of working to a common goal. We never felt that Traudel was trying to push or force us into a decision one way or another. She might not have agreed with us on certain aspects of negotiating the fine points of a deal, and while she let us know gently, she had our best interests at heart.

Her endless supply of granola bars kept our children humming the whole time we were house hunting, and we loved the rapport both Traudel and Justin had with our children. Our daughter even explained to us one night over dinner that "real estate agents are the spice of life!"

Dear Traudel and Justin, thank you for all your work in helping us find the right house for us—as soon as we are unpacked, you must come by!
