Working with Michael and Elissa was great from start to finish. I had no real estate experience and Michael was patient and taught me a lot in our first call. He is very responsive, knowledgeable about mid-century modern architecture, and knows the DMV market well. He helped me navigate a rapidly changing market, guiding me through the entire process with excellent advice. I never felt rushed or pressured and found a home in my preferred neighborhood. I would definitely work with Modern Capital again.

Michael was amazing to work with! He was incredibly responsive, insightful, helpful, and professional throughout our recent purchase. He is very knowledgeable of the local market and was extremely supportive. He helped navigate the myriads of choices and considerations through the many complex steps in the buying process.

For us, this was incredibly important, as we were new to the local market, and purchasing a home is such a major undertaking. Michael helped us strategize our offer to secure the house we wanted despite a number of competing offers. He truly went above and beyond to answer our questions and concerns. In addition to being such a great guy to work with, he is also an expert in all things mid-century modern and can provide amazing insights and context in this unique part of the market. We are so glad we found Michael and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

As California natives and former MCM homeowners, we were worried that we would have a very difficult time finding this unique style home in the DMV area in our price range. Mike’s name came up in numerous online searches and in interviews, so we reached out and he responded immediately. He completely understood our aesthetics and also our quirks. Though we liked turn-key homes, we also liked the idea of getting a project that could be saved. It also needed to be a larger lot, but not too far from DC and our work. He found us exactly that with a custom-built MCM home in Silver Spring on a large lot and with the style we love, but room for improvement and a chance to save a beautiful home from a likely wrecking ball and the construction of something utterly lacking in style, charm, and warmth. We really can’t say enough good things about how wonderful Mike was and how quickly he responded …

We really can’t say enough good things about how wonderful Mike was and how quickly he responded to all our questions; we had a lot of questions. His wife even helped us, getting us into a showing on a highly competitive property when Mike was out of town. Whether you’re looking for an MCM home or not, we cannot imagine going to anyone else and cannot recommend him more heartily or highly.

We met Michael at one of his open houses in the middle of what was turning into a long and frustrating search for our first home. While we knew that the property we were visiting that day wasn’t the right one for us, we walked away completely impressed by Michael’s real estate knowledge and professionalism. Deciding to work with him for the remainder of our search was one of the best choices we made. We found him to be incredibly easy to work with–he was responsive and seemed to have an innate ability to pinpoint which houses on the market would appeal to us the most. We never felt pressured or rushed in our search–he was the first agent we worked with who really seemed to understand our goals and put our interests ahead of making a quick sale.

He is a wealth of knowledge on architecture (especially MCM), home renovations, and market trends which helped us confidently make decisions during the home buying process. We spent over a year looking at houses we didn’t love with real estate agents who didn’t seem to understand what we wanted. With Michael, it took us three months to find a home that we love. We can’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks again for everything!
