“The summarized review: Mr. Joshua Chapman is an excellent agent whose services I will gladly take advantage of again in the future. If you are looking to buy or sell in the Northern Virginia or DC area, I highly recommend you take the opportunity to benefit from what he offers.
The detailed review: Josh and I started a client/agent relationship in 2017. Living in NJ at the time, I knew I needed an agent in Northern VA who was watchful, responsive, organized, knowledgeable, and professional. Throughout the year, he checked in with me and we discussed various areas and properties so that he could get a better idea of what my priorities were before moving. During one of my work travels to the area earlier this fall, we looked at a few properties, one of which I wanted to place an offer on. That particular property didn’t work out for reasons outside of anyone’s control. However, due to Josh’s contingency planning and preparation for the possibility of a worst-case scenario, we were ready to view other properties immediately on the day we had originally planned to close on the first property.
I had opted to fully utilize Josh’s network to the fullest with regard to who I chose for title services, mortgage financing, and property inspection. Because of the team effort, I was under contract on my second attempted property within a day of making the initial offer, and we attended a closing within a time frame that was faster than I would have ever thought possible. Despite my time crunch, he still managed to negotiate a price that was more than fair and reasonable for the property, which I confirmed for myself once I had seen the appraisal. Great price on a property that meets criteria, and a fast closing? What more could one ask for?
Please note that my case was exceptional, not typical. I only share to illustrate Josh’s ability to plan, network, problem-solve, negotiate, and respond, despite the obstacles early on. If you care to know the actual time to closing, I recommend you reach out to Josh and feel free to ask about my story, and to share yours! )”

“Josh Chapman is recognized as the Washingtonian Magazine’s Top Agents 2017 and NVAR Multi-Million Dollar Club, Top Producer. There is no doubt that he has earned those credentials and exceeded my expectations when he listed and sold my property quickly and at the highest resale EVER in Arlington Forest, by nearly $50K. Josh focused immediately on market values and trends leading into marketing the home on all available marketing outlets. He is very knowledgeable about the market and has a lot of experience in selling homes in the greater DC area. He has developed a system that works well for sellers and buyers. He ensured all details were in place to include the planning and timing to list the home matching current market trends. He addressed all coordination efforts with contractors, city utilities, county officials and anyone required to prepare the home for its initial showing. This allowed for a great showing. Within a week on the market, I began receiving multiple offers for top dollar. As the offers rolled in, he did a great job at discussing the pluses and minuses of each. When the final offer was accepted, he kept the buyers realtor on track to the fully execute the sale.
He made the sale of our house stress free. The total process from listing to closing was seamless! Josh Chapman qualities and skills makes him an excellent real estate professional.
I also, want to mention the fact that Josh worked all formality’s on site himself. I live 4,000 miles away in Alaska. From initial listing to closing, everything was handled by Josh. I highly recommend Josh Chapman for your real estate needs!!

“Josh was fantastic to work with. He truly understood our needs as first time home buyers and was very attentive and knowledgeable.
Josh took the time to understand our personal situation which helped when it came time to negotiating the price and terms of the condo. He also was an expert on the area, communities and properties we considered.
Josh was very friendly and outgoing from the beginning and made us feel very comfortable with the process. He was accessible and always ready and willing to help. He also made sure to check in and follow up in order to keep us on track and meet our timeline.
I would highly recommend Josh Chapman for any of your home buying needs in the DMV area. He truly cares about his clients and it shows in his superior service!”

“We're in a pretty challenging market for buyers, and Josh did a great job collecting information to put together competitive offers. I've worked with many other realtors with much more experience, but I wouldn't recommend any of them over Josh. Everything went so smoothly because Josh works hard to be prepared and make sure that everything is right. I highly recommend Josh Chapman.”
Bryan G., Fairfax (Buyer)
“As a small investor, it is important for me to select properties that fit a specific niche. Josh Chapman understood my narrow requirements and worked with me for nearly a year, to find houses in a very competitive market. During negotiations, Josh kept me up to date, sometimes several times a day. He was consistently available via text or phone. I would recommend Josh for his competence and kindness. He is the professional realtor you would entrust with a friend.”

“Josh exceeded my expectations in all aspects of the sale of my property. In particular, he was even willing to help with an extensive remodeling to prepare the property for sale.”
Tracey Cover (Seller)
“Josh was recommended by our relocation company.
He worked with us to find a great deal on a home with tons of potential. His understanding of the different greater DC/northern Virginia neighborhoods was crucial in helping us decide on a place to focus our efforts on. We would highly recommend Josh to anyone looking for a home in this area. ”
Barbara B-H, Springfield, VA (Buyer)
“Exceptional service from start to finish. I’ve known Josh for years and have been quietly admiring his fast success in real estate for the past few. When I decided I wanted to start looking for a home to buy myself, I knew exactly who to contact. As a first-time home buyer, I was very green to the whole experience—I had no idea what I was doing. Josh really guided me along the way—he was able to share incredible insight into today’s market, explain how the home buying process works in its entirety, and by the time I was ready to put in an offer on a home I had the resources I needed to get it done fast and get it done right. Josh worked around the clock, coached me on negotiating, worked as a middle-man between myself, the mortgage, and title companies (did I mention he has a phenomenal team to work with?). He and his industry partners kept me on track and guided me every step of the way to ensure a successful and stress-free 3-week close. As I told Josh after we closed, he took what is traditionally an incredibly tense, nerve-racking life-event and made it an absolute breeze. If you’re looking for a realtor who is truly going to represent you and assist you in finding your next dream home in DC or Virginia, look no further”
Kevin Shea, Washington, DC (Buyer)
“Mr. Josh Chapman was impressive from first contact and he quickly studied both the market and my interest providing solid recommendations that were on target. The greatest attribute witnessed was his passion, excitement, and dedication toward the profession.
The process was seamless under his purview and guidance. Transitions can be difficult, however Josh was able to remove the anxiety from the process. Josh kept the process flowing smoothly as adjustments to the contract were made and he single handedly kept the closing date on track working through all involved parties. He was very personable which made it easy to be candid and have honest conversations that led to a positive outcome. I was always made to feel as if I were his only client and I appreciated his timely and on the spot availability.
Josh demonstrated to the greatest extent possible experience well beyond his years. Having worked with many agents over the years through several military moves, I recognize Josh Chapman as a one of the leading and top real estate agents in the field and feel fortunate that he was my agent. ”

“My Realtor, Josh Chapman is very knowledgeable. There are no words to describe how well this home purchase happened. The whole process went so smoothly, it was almost "scary". Could not believe it could done with such little effort and issues. Josh was available for any answers and concerns we had (sometimes way after normal office hours). He is professional and courteous. excellent in follow-up, and detail oriented. I would never consider anyone but Josh for any future real estate transactions. His honesty and understanding is refreshing and surely that was a big factor in the ease and timeliness of the purchase of our new home.
