No one ever really asks a real estate agent how they became one. Many agents simply fall into it; but not me.
Although my father and grandmother were both real estate agents at one point in time, it was really my grand father, an architectural consultant for the Architect of the Capitol, that really captivated me in real estate. He taught me how to draw floor plans and elevations from a very young age, and I still consider myself an amateur designer. Although I loved architecture, I always knew that I was meant for business school. So I pursued a degree in Finance with an emphasis in Real Estate at Old Dominion University. Upon Graduation, I was honored with the award for Real Estate Student of the Year for my graduating class. Ever since I have been practicing real estate in some capacity, from inside sales coordination to retail leasing.
I have a real passion and love for real estate. I can find you your dream home; or find one that could become it. I have a great sense of how a property flows and functions; and how to simply improve different elements of a prospective home for purchase. I have helped many clients in a variety of capacities, and have a breadth of knowledge in all areas of real estate. I can either find the perfect property for you as is, or find you one that could be altered to accommodate your needs at a lower price, better location, etc.

My husband and I bought a townhouse in Newington Forest. Joseph and his assistant Talon was very helpful. We had some paperwork problems with bank Talon helped us to solve it, in mean time Joseph was communicating with unhappy seller. He also saved us some money, because of process delay. In addition to that, he is very fast and responsive. He also listen want we want, i did not try to sell his opinion. Joseph is a great agent!

Joe was really awesome and went to bat for me often with the seller. I appreciated that when some parts of the process felt off to me he looked into them and told me of his findings. He also completely supported me when we found issues in the condo documents and helped me get out of a now bad deal.
Joe definitely puts his client first and I'll happily be recommending him to family and friends as well as coming back when I find the time is right to house hunt again.

Joseph is very helpful. He was responsive and willing to work with our requirements. He is knowledgeable with real estate in Northern Virginia. He makes sure his clients are happy and he is good tempered, I know this as a fact because I was about to sign a contract for a property that he has worked on for more than a month but I decided not to sign the contract because my preferences changed but Joseph was ok and he started looking for more properties. This shows that clients interest are his top priority. It was great to work with Joseph. I wish him great success.
Dear Vinay,It was such a pleasure working with you; integrating your family into the center of the decision process. I truly appreciate your kind words, and please keep in touch! Sincerely, Joseph

An agent must make his client feel comfortable, and as a client I did feel comfortable with Joseph. Joseph was always available when I had queries and he also helped me when I needed to obtain information/documents from other parties including lender, condo community association etc. He is knowledgeable, energetic, patient, and highly motivated professional. I would highly recommend him as a real state angent.
Dear VJ,It was such a pleasure working with you and your brother. You were very diligent in your thought process, and I believe we really found you a great house in a great location; and I am honored to have been able to represent you. I am still excited about going out to dinner and meeting your wife whenever you have an available afternoon or evening.Please keep in touch.Sincerely,Joseph

He is a very dedicated and hardworking agent. I would recommend him for any lease deal of residential property. He showed me a variety of properties and some that might not have thought to match my interest.
Dear ZUser,Thank you for your kind words. Although traditionally I do not do leasing, I have helped other agents in my office. Although I am not sure which unit I helped you with, due to the autonomy of the user, I am truly happy that you were satisfied with my services, and truly appreciate your endorsement.Sincerely, Joseph Theil

Joseph helped me buy a condominium remotely while I was away. He helped my uncle find me a great condominium for a great price, and dedicated the time and energy needed for me and my uncle to truly understand what was going on during the entire process. With english being my second language, this was of great value to me.
Nanfeise, I was so happy that you were pleased with the home; even though unseen by you, and relying only on pictures and videos of the condominium. It was a pleasure working with you and your uncle, and I truly appreciate your kind words. Please keep in touch.Sincerely, Joseph Theil

Joesph is great residential agent whom I use on a frequent basis to help me identify and broker investment properties.
He is extremely knowledgeable about the local markets and always provides top-tier service. I know I can rely on Joesph, especially when he answers my calls at odd hours. He gives me honest answers and discloses everything to me. He is trustworthy and will be my go-to agent for a long time.
Collin, you are as analytical as you are professional; and I love working with you. Thank you for your kind words. Sincerely, Joseph Theil

We were interested in multiple investment properties in which we had toured; and when one of the listings that I expressed interest in became withdrawn, Joseph immediately contacted me. Although this condo was listed over 20% below the highest price we would be willing to pay, he advocated for it strongly, and truly represented our best interests. He was able to get me a great condo in the perfect location for a fantastic price. I'd highly recommend Joseph to anyone purchasing real estate.
Mike, I have gained not only what I believe to be a mutually beneficial business relationship; but also a true friend. I look forward to our continued conversations.Sincerely,Joseph Theil

Mr. Joseph Theil has been diligent, efficient, and professional. He has gone to great lengths to manage my purchase of a foreclosed property; including providing professional consultation and connecting me to multiple related professional resources. Joseph made the purchase a reality by suggesting a 203k loan, which is the only finance mechanism that worked for me. Joseph is a hard negotiator, insisting we re-counter at original offer, and reached a settlement in under 2 months. I highly recommend his services.
Thank you so much for your review Keith. It has been a pleasure dealing with you; and I am sure that the property purchased is in the perfect hands to attain the value-add strategy proposed.Please, please keep in touch,Joseph Theil
