“Austin is a top notch agent. I had a number of personal contacts to consider, so I was really looking for people to work with who had a strong knowledge of DC and could help guide me without overpowering my desires.
I've found that some agents could be pushy about what they thought was best for you, but Austin truly listens and identifies the key needs. I honestly didn't even realize how important natural light was to me until Austin pointed it out!
Austin was great to work with, very knowledgeable without being overwhelming. Paid attention to details in the background and got me back on track whenever anything was getting off schedule during the search and contract phases.
I now recommend Austin to everyone who asks me anything about renting or buying locally and can remain worry free that they will have a great experience, no matter what.

“Austin was an exceptional realtor. He went above-and-beyond for me to find my perfect home. Austin always listened to my home buying needs and provided excellent advice and feedback when answering my questions. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and then was able to find my the perfect home! As a first time home buyer, I am so grateful to have had Austin as a realtor. Austin truly is your "realtor for life" and I cannot recommend him enough.”
Brittney Manchester, Kalorama, DC (Buyer)
“I worked with Austin to find a new rental unit. I was moving from out of state, and was unable to visit places myself. Austin went above and beyond what I had expected of him, frequently visiting units and sending me video tours. He was extremely reliable, and was always available when I had a question. Austin was tremendously helpful with paperwork and logistics, answered all of my questions clearly, and made the process as seamless as possible. I will definitely be working with Austin to find my next home!”
Leslie, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Austin was outstanding to work with. Most important, we found him to be extremely trustworthy. He was an honest negotiator on our behalf and worked tirelessly, even though we pummeled him with questions/concerns typical of a neurotic first-time homebuyer. He was always easy to get ahold of and responded promptly. He made us feel like a priority. ”
Chico Harlan, NE DC (Buyer)
“As a first time home purchaser - Austin went out of his way on multiple times to answer my questions and help my understand the home buying process. He made the process easy, comfortable, and understandable. He brought a prospective to looking at homes that I would have never considered.”
Spencer Hughes, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Austin did a great job preparing a competitive offer and gaining an understanding of both my needs and the seller's needs. Because of that, we ended up with an offer that stood out from other competing offers and ultimately made the rest of the negotiations go smoothly.
Not only was Austin a great resource himself, but he also helped connect me to other experts that helped me through the experience (settlement attorneys, lenders, movers). As a first time homebuyer, he kept the process from becoming overwhelming and helped me find a home for less than my maximum budget, rather than trying to steer me towards the more expensive homes. ”
Susan, Washington DC (Buyer)
“Mr. Johntra's responses to my emails were always very timely. He pushed me information immediately, kept me informed along the way, kept me very involved in the advertising and renting process, and was easy to work with. Once we had tenants who wanted to rent the place, all paperwork was sent to via email to sign electronically, and everything was processed very quickly.”
R.B.M. Arlington, VA (Seller)
“I/we have the highest praise for Harold. While his professionalism, technical grasp, service and preparation were obvious strengths of his, I'd like to add that he has a natural ability to understand people.
I'd like to purchase a home in a few years, and will absolutely circle back to Harold when that time comes. ”
“Austin Johntra was a fantastic realtor. We were on a very tight time schedule and he helped us find exactly what we were looking for without making us feel rushed or pressured to decide. He was extremely professional and was very prompt in all our communications. He was very clear about what his role was and what we needed to provide him, so we were never uncertain or unclear about the next steps of the process. He took our very specific needs into account and was attentive to all the details, helping point out things that met our needs as well as things that might be problematic during inspections. I trusted him to help us find a place that worked for our requirements, and he did everything we asked and more. For moving across country, it was nice knowing that we had a realtor we could trust. I would absolutely recommend Austin and will certainly use his services again in the future.”
Carl Brown, Alexandria (Buyer)
“Austin Johntra was great to work with. He made everything incredibly easy and was accommodating of my needs and my roommates's needs in looking for an apartment that fit the criteria and price range we were looking for. Austin went out of his way to accommodate me, and was willing to meet me at places that were convenient for me in order to pick up any information that he needed from me. Austin was very friendly to work with and always available to meet.
I love the new apartment. Austin helped find what my roommate and I were looking for and I'm extremely grateful for his help!

He made us feel like we were a priority during our visit to find a place, and he helped us find and secure the perfect home in a tight time frame. He was also very well informed about the areas in which we were searching, and he was very approachable for questions. We couldn't have been happier and strongly recommend working with Austin. ”
Karen Brown, Alexandria (Buyer)
“I would highly recommend Austin Johntra to any of my friends or family. He was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process of finding the perfect place. He was very patient and listened to all of our needs and wants. He was timely in responding to me and coming up with results. He was extremely organized and took time out of his schedule to help me gather my thoughts and make the best decision for my situation. He also took the time to pick up or drop off any documents or keys from us and safely brought them to their destination. Austin was very helpful and found my roommate and I the perfect place. ”
