What my clients are saying.
Trevor, Janis and the Trevor + John team are just awesome! True professionals! We have sold or purchased many homes over the years and Trevor has been, by far, the absolute best agent we have had the pleasure to work with. Trevor took the time to talk thru all our questions and concerns, made excellent recommendations about how to prepare our condo for sale and did a wonderful job staging our condo. Bottomline - we had a full price offer within days of our condo going on the market! I could not make a stronger recommendation for Trevor and his team!
John and Belinda
"We retained John and Trevor to sell our condo after 2 prior sales efforts had failed. Jointly, using their candid assessments of the condo market, we explored all options and set a sales goal. John and Trevor were efficient and effective in their marketing and soon identified and engaged potential buyers. They achieved a deal at our asking price in a very short time. All objectives for this sale were met and the closing was well-managed, which Shelly made happen. We would recommend this team without reservation."
Steve & Karen
"John and Trevor helped us rent out our house. They made the process extremely easy and hassle free. For instance, they took the lead on finding the right people to make small repairs and cosmetic fixes. Moreover, they were able to find wonderful tenants within a day after listing. Overall, this was a great experience and we highly recommend them."
"Working with John and Trevor was an excellent experience from our initial questions about house buying through actually buying a house. They were responsive to all of our initial questions and provided a good sounding board that allowed my partner and I to feel more comfortable with the process and to hone in on what the best situation was for us. It was never pressure about buying and focused on what made sense as they provided us information to enable us to make a choice appropriate for our family."
"John Eric was an extremely knowledgeable, dedicated real estate agent. It was a pleasure working with him and Trevor Moore. They made us feel like they were totally focused on the sale of our condo: advised on how best to prepare the condo for sale, worked with other agents to broadly market the availability of our condo, and successfully executed the sale of our condo in 3 days at full listing price. But their work with us did not stop there. Both John and Trevor worked closely with us until the day our condo sale closed. They went above and beyond the sale process…even helping us to store some of our furniture and move to an apartment so we were prepared to go to closing within a very short time-frame. I would not hesitate to highly recommend both of these real estate agents."
Maddy & Paul Macko
"We worked with John Eric and Trevor Moore during our relocation to Virginia earlier this year. We were unfamiliar with the area and needed someone knowledgeable who could provide strong guidance. We hit the jackpot with John and Trevor. From our very first phone conversation with John, we were impressed by his knowledge of the areas we were considering. We met both John and Trevor when they showed us homes in various areas around Nova. As corny as it sounds, it truly was like getting two for one. John and Trevor were able to manage the whole transaction and represented us well. We would definitely use them again and highly recommend them."
"We had the extreme pleasure of working with this team during the purchase of our first home this past spring. I began casually looking several years before and I never felt the slightest rush while working with this team. Once it became clear that our time was near, we picked up the pace and worked directly with Trevor. He made it EASY. Even before I completely knew the entire process or was ready to pull the trigger, Trevor went to every Open House with us to help narrow down our interests (even at the drop of a hat!). When touring these homes, we were lucky to utilize Trevor’s expertise in estimating contractor costs and always gave it to us straight. It was like walking around with your very experienced brother. He had our complete trust and we genuinely enjoyed working with him at every turn. We ended up putting a total of 4 offers down on different houses. For each and every offer Trevor was highly communicative, effectively educated us on any terminology that was foreign, and made the extra effort to give us advice and go to bat for us during negotiations. Currently it’s been 6 months since our closing and we still have open lines of communication! You don’t find that everywhere. His network of other professionals is expansive and we have already utilized 3 of the connections he helped us make. We can’t wait until after COVID when we can have an official house warming party to celebrate with Trevor! Thank you so much John Eric / Trevor Moore Team!"
"A huge Thanks to John and Trevor @ Compass for selling our Arlington home in 3 days! Their team eased the stress of a fast corporate relocation and took care of everything for us on the ground while we were already relocated and living in Dallas. From staging to landscaping, they handled everything to maximize our sale! Super easy and highly recommended!"
Chris Womack & Brandon Patchett
"Trevor and his staff were amazing. I was completely overwhelmed by the prospect of moving. I had moved into my condo 18 years ago and had barely done anything to it, so I was very worried that I would be losing a lot of value when selling the house. All Trevor asked me to do was trust him, which I did. At times was more of a general contractor than a realtor, overseeing a kitchen renovation, 2 bathrooms and all new flooring basically “the works”. He aggressively quoted several different contractors, and I paid waaaay less than I was expecting for these upgrades. When it came time to sell my house, we listed it for about 5% higher than I expected (the renovations came out very well), yet it still sold the first weekend for OVER listing price. I CAN NOT STRESS ENOUGH how awesome Trevor and his team were. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!"
We cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Trevor and his team. Trevor was fantastic to work with throughout the entire process of selling our home. From the start, we were very impressed with his personal approach, attention to detail and hard work. He was always accessible and quick to respond to any question. Compass also offers a concierge service that assists with home upgrades, staging and more! We are extremely happy with the outcome and HIGHLY recommend Trevor and his team for any of your real estate needs!
Rich and Aimee
"The process of selling our house from beginning to end could not have gone more smoothly and an outsized amount of credit for this is due to John and Trevor. Their professionalism, industry knowledge, and responsiveness went above and beyond every step of the way. Our home was under contract before even being officially brought to market, the sale closed without issue, and both buyers and sellers were overwhelmingly pleased with all aspects of the transaction. I cannot recommend them both highly enough!"
Jody & Brendan Devine
"Working with the team of John Eric and Trevor Moore was a wonderful experience. As a first time home buyer and currently over seas, I found this process (because of the professionalism of John and Trevor) to be a pleasant one. They always made me feel like I was a priority through this process and would answer all of my questions with efficiency, intelligence and humor which I very much appreciated. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this team. I would 100% recommend my friends and family to work with them in a heart beat!"
"I just have to say that working with Trevor and John was a dream experience! They were professional, courteous and prompt in all his communications and actions. I couldn’t think of anything that just was not top notch about the whole experience! They even had recommendations for the moving company and handyman that I needed to complete the relocation process. I wouldn’t dream of using anyone else for all of my real estate needs!"
"Trevor and John helped my wife and I sell our condo in Columbia Heights and purchase a our new home in Chevy Chase (Trevor was our buyers agent when we purchased the condo back in 2015). They put forth a compelling marketing plan that highlighted our unique property and we are thrilled at the outcome. When it came to our new home, they were tremendously helpful in putting together a compelling offer and assisting with navigating a complex (and messy) TOPA situation. Exceptional professionals – highly recommend."
Sihyun & Rachel Choi
"Trevor went above and beyond helping us buy our first home! Before we met with him, my husband and I had been looking for a home for over a year and a half with no luck and we were really overwhelmed by the daunting process of home buying. That is when Trevor came highly recommended by multiple people and made our first home buying experience the absolute best it could possibly be. We appreciate how much Trevor cared to take the time to get to know us, our exact wants, our timeline, and he executed at the exact pace we felt comfortable with. He always made himself available to answer all of our questions over the phone or in person and was so easy to get along with. You absolutely want Trevor and his team to be in your corner for when you are looking to buy a home, especially in such a competitive market. We are so grateful for this experience and to start this next chapter in our dream home thanks to this wonderful team – I highly recommend them!!!"
Claire & Tommy
"We can not say enough great things about our experience with Trevor! He was recommended to us by a good friend and he did not disappoint. We were first time home buyers and had some other friends in the market and when we compared our Realtor® experience, Trevor clearly went above and beyond! He always made himself at all hours of the day/night. Every house we toured he would point out technical details that were very useful to know (ie. age/quality of windows, AC unit, heating, roof, etc.). It only took a couple of houses for Trevor to really grasp exactly what we wanted and he found our perfect house. Not only did he find it, his aggressive negotiation skills got us the house and we weren’t even the highest offer. In Northern Virginia market, that says A LOT! If you are looking for a fantastic realtor that really has your best interest at heart, don’t look any further! We couldn’t be happier in our new house and we wouldn’t be here without Trevor!"
Christy & Josh
"I cannot stress enough what a pleasure it was to work with Trevor and the entire John Eric + Trevor Moore Team. This team is comprised of knowledgeable and experienced professionals. My condo sold within one day of listing and at list price. If you use Trevor as your listing agent, I guarantee a great sale. Smooth and rapid communication and explanations. Terrific advice and support from the first minute to the close date. Ease of mind regarding renovations and other repairs (not only did he plan and execute a kitchen renovation – which netted a much higher profit – he also oversaw other repairs from general wear and tear.) A calm, guiding hand in negotiations. Honestly, there is no better agent to have on your side than Trevor Moore. And Janis from the JE + TM Team was both extremely timely and friendly when helping with the transaction. Through the entire process, I felt incredibly positive and comfortable when working with this team"
"John Eric and Trevor Moore were outstanding in every respect! Incredibly helpful, efficient and responsive, everything went like a breeze and the house sold for exactly what they said it would despite lower initial estimates from other Realtors®. They came warmly recommended by neighbors who were absolutely right!"
Jean F. Delpech
We worked with Trevor to purchase a home this past year and we could not have been happier with our experience. We were first-time prospective buyers who were not sure exactly what we wanted (or what we were doing!) in the beginning, and Trevor guided us through every step of the process with patience, diligence, incredible professionalism and a deep knowledge of the DC/Northern Virginia real estate market. He helped us identify our criteria and narrow our search, made thoughtful recommendations, and was always upbeat and responsive (but never pushy!). Once we found a house that we loved, he was pitch perfect at negotiating the offer and helped guide us through the inspection, walkthroughs, and closing with his sharp eye for construction details and with impeccable execution. We feel so lucky to have been able to work with Trevor to find the perfect home and we could not recommend him more highly!
Beth and Jeff T.
Past experiences did not leave us looking forward to purchasing another home, however with Trevor Moore it was a great experience - even in a difficult market. Trevor and his team are true professionals that go the extra mile every step of the way. He worked hard to help us find a home in the location we desired, going as far as contacting realtors to show us homes before they got listed! When he showed us a home, he really showed it to us – reviewing the bones of the house and mechanical systems. He also explains everything in simple, calm, easy to understand terms - so you are clear-eyed and make an informed decision. He really knows the market and how best to structure your offer to get it accepted at the right price. In the end he recommended we write a letter and provided us with examples to give us a boost in a competitive environment. His advice is spot on. And he also has the uncanny ability to make a stressful market not feel so bad to boot. If you’re looking for an agent you won’t find anyone better, Trevor truly is the best!!
