What Our Clients Are Saying

Will helped my wife and I find our first house, he walked us through the entire process and answered any questions we had no matter how simple or complex they seemed. Will also made sure that our new house was ready for us to move in and made sure negotiations were done timely and correctly. We had a very tight timeline to purchase and Will made sure everything went smooth and fast.

Will helped me find a home when I was relocating to Washington DC from London. He was very helpful and listened to my priorities and requirements, and we discussed via email and Skype before I came over to view a list of options. He knows the city very well and doesn’t make you feel pressured into making hasty decisions, but he also moved fast when required. I’ve recommended Will to several colleagues at my company who want to buy or lease properties.

Appleton Properties has been a pleasure to work with throughout our home search and buying process. Will and Adam are brothers, Washington natives and great real estate professionals who know the city block by block. They were able to tell us in great detail about different parts of the city, transit options, housing types and neighborhoods so that we could make an informed decision and purchase the perfect house for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

William Fastow and Appleton Properties has been an invaluable partner as we consider new development opportunities throughout the area. Will’s insightful advice and local knowledge is exactly what we needed to ensure that our first project was not only profitable but realistic given our timeframe and resources. I would not hesitate recommending Appleton Properties to anyone considering purchasing or selling property in the Washington metropolitan area.

When my wife and I began looking for a house, a mortgage broker told us it was going to be fun and easy. It was neither. Wil was very professional, courteous and tireless. He worked with us for more than a year, from the 10 months when we weren’t sure what we would buy until the final page of our closing was signed. He dealt with the unexpected and the stressful, and most importantly, he showed us what we were looking for, not what was best for him.

-Howard Bryant

We loved working with Will. As firs-time homebuyers, we were unsure of how the process worked and what to expect. Not only did Will find the perfect place for us, but he helped us every step of the way in a friendly and knowledgeable manner that helped ease any concerns we may have had. Buying real estate actually turned out to be more enjoyable than we thought! ? ?

“The difference is in the details” certainly proved to be true when Will helped me find my new apartment. I worked with a number of brokers but Will was the only one who volunteered “insider” information on the neighborhood without prompting from me. He knows his properties and he knows his neighborhoods; where to shop, eat and play. His “insider tips” on where and when to park. His colorful descriptions as we toured listings gave me a real feel for what was unique about each location and how it would fit my specific needs. In the end, I found just the “right place” but his attention to detail didn’t end there; when it came time to close Will, again unasked, had prepared a list of important neighborhood locations and resource numbers for my new home; everything from where I would be voting to when the trash was collected along with the local fire, police and post office info. ? ?I’d recommend Will to anyone who wants to take the stress out of finding a new home. ?

We were extremely pleased with everything that Will did in preparing our condominium for sale, listing at an appropriate price, getting good traffic through the unit, and negotiating the final purchase price. ? ?We were largely absent from the time that we decided to sell the property through the date the sale closed. As we started the process of putting our unit on the market, Will gave us what proved to be an accurate assessment of market value and recommended that we make a few improvements in order to enhance its value. Will knew the local contractors, got quotes for the work, and supervised the general contractor in completing the work — we were out of town for the duration. The quality of the work was excellent and significantly enhanced the ultimate sales price of the property. Will was also judicious in his home improvement recommendations. There were a number of additional projects that we could have undertaken, but in Will’s opinion these projects would not return enough return to make the effort worthwhile. He was right! ? ?All in all, we were extremely pleased with the personal service that Will provided. He kept us informed throughout the process and his professional advice was excellent. We highly recommend his focused, professional service. ? ?We would be pleased to be a reference. ?
