    "Margaret and the Babbington Team did an extraordinary job helping me sell and acquire homes in Georgetown and Mt. Vernon Square. I am a busy residential and commercial developer as well as a licensed real estate agent, so my bar is set high. They exceeded my expectations at every stage. The attention to detail and customer service as well as negotiating skills made my company an excellent return. I would highly recommend the Margaret and Babbington Team!"

    "It was such a pleasure working with the Babbington Team! Carrie helped us find an apartment in the district. She was very receptive and listened well to the features we were looking for. We were always in regular communication and Carrie worked around our busy work schedules. She has great enthusiasm and local knowledge. It very much felt like a team effort, and made the process really enjoyable."

    "I met Carrie and Margaret at an open house for a property where they were representing the seller, and was immediately impressed by their knowledge of the neighborhoods I was interested in (Bloomingdale, Eckington, Shaw, Columbia Heights), and especially their specific familiarity with boutique projects that were not yet on the market but would be coming on soon. Knowing how competitive the DC real estate market is, and having an interest in finding a condo in a very small boutique building (~2 to 8 units), I knew that knowledge would be an asset. True to my expectations, Carrie consistently introduced me to properties that I had not been able to find through online databases on my own. Carrie and Margaret advocated on my behalf when we made offers, and thanks to their expertise, I won the bid on the second home we made an offer on. Their recommendations for lenders and inspectors were spot-on, and they and their team continued to be an asset to my sanity after closing, talking me through working with the seller and builder on making minor repairs and upgrades to my newly-renovated townhouse condo. I enthusiastically recommend the Babbington team!"

    "Babbington Team has very good knowledge of the local D.C. real estate market. They are very well connected with builders and other agents in the D.C. market and have very good knowledge of the latest trends, new developments and pricing. As an investor, we were looking for a brand new construction in Northwest D.C. Carrie helped us find a great luxury boutique building, which met our needs. We had a great experience working with her during our buying process. She was always very responsive and came up new ideas for us to market and rent the condo. Carrie and her team helped us get rental comps and coordinated with the builder to show the condo to prospective tenants even before our closing, something which is unheard of. I am very pleased with our experience working with the Babbington team and I would highly recommend them to anybody looking to buy/sell property in the D.C. market."

    "Margaret was an immense help in selling this house quickly for a good price. I found her prepared, professional and patient. We were doing our best to settle my parent’s estate and Margaret was a godsend with great guidance and advice. She stayed with us throughout the process of the sale and was always there when we needed her."

    "When my husband and I were ready to hop back into the real estate market in 2012, Margaret was there to help us find the right home. Like most folks, we had high expectations despite our somewhat limited budget, and Margaret was patient with us, showing us a bunch of homes in different neighborhoods until we found the place we call home today. Her enthusiasm, seemingly boundless energy, and knowledge of the local market made what could have been a stressful search much easier and enjoyable. I highly recommend her!"

    "Margaret Babbington is the best! She helped me buy my first home in the suburbs after a life as a city girl. She was able to narrow down my focus to this area next to Hyattsville called University Park that was affordable, safe, and has a great public school. She was patient and did some tough negotiating to get the house I wanted at a great price. I have never been happier!! I highly recommend her. In the interest of full disclosure, she is my sister, which may make this review count even more to her credit!"
