Gajan and Mital Sivananthan, Larchmont, NY, Spring Lake, NJ, and Washington, DC02/05/2019
Hill, we want to thank for making our move to DC as pleasant and seamless as it could have been! In the summer of 2018, our family of 5 needed to relocate to the Washington DC metro area from New Jersey. We knew little more of the area than what we could glean from the internet and had limited time in which to explore in a highly competitive sellers’ market. Needless to say, the cards were stacked against us!You took the time to get to know us and listened to our needs. Through diligence and the trust we developed in your judgment, we were able to buy our perfect house in time for the kids to start school. My wife and I really appreciated your non-pressured style, your willingness to share your opinion whether we were bidding too low or too high on a house. After living in our new home for 6 months, we could not be happier with the house and neighborhood. We feel fortunate to have worked with you and credit your advice and negotiating in winning the bid on our home.

Hill helped us negotiate the purchase of our first home for $84,000 below list price which was an amazing deal. He then helped us sell that same home for a $92,000 profit five years later. We used him again to purchase a 4,000 square foot dream home in a complicated six month "short sale" situation at an unbelievable price. Hill is a master negotiator, lawyer, agent and friend. He takes calls at all hours of the day, outsmarts other agents and provides honest advice and counsel. We consider him a member of our family. If you use anyone other than Hill to buy or sell your next home you are an idiot.

To Whom It May Concern:
Having recently retired and moved to the West Coast, we faced the task of selling our beloved Bethesda home after 25 years. To guide us through this emotion-laden process, we turned to Hill Slowinski, whom we have also known for 25 years. Despite the fact that we put the house onto a softening market at the onset of the harshest winter in memory, Hill guided us to a very successful result in a reasonable period of time. And Hill did this without our physical presence in the DC area.
Hill is a gentleman in the full sense, self-confident but never pushy or arrogant. He never hesitated to give us his recommendations, but always listened to our concerns and questions. We found Hill always well-informed on complex laws and regulations governing real estate transactions, and he advised us ably on how to protect ourselves from potential risks.
Hill gave us a very clear overview of the sales process at our first meeting, and provided expert advice on the most cost-effective improvements to “refresh” the house before showing. He personally oversaw all the work on the house, and pro-actively organized numerous open-house showings. He frequently went the extra-mile for us on matters such as snow removal, yard clean-up, unanticipated repairs, and hauling away debris from the attic or basement.
Hill negotiated very well on our behalf. He told us politely when we would be advised to accede to a potential buyer’s reasonable request, and when we should hold firm or simply “wait and see.” As a result, the whole process was much less stressful than it could have been, and we secured a sales price well within the range we hoped for.
Our experience reaffirmed the high regard in which we have long held Hill Slowinski. We would recommend him to any prospective buyer or seller. He is truly tops, in our book.

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your incredible handling of the sale of my Maryland property. Your expertise, attention to detail, professionalism and sense of calm were outstanding. Not to mention your follow thru on every aspect of the sale from listing to the closing. It is my pleasure to send you a, " highly recommend "message for you to use for future clients.
When it came time to sell my property, living in another state, but having been a broker in Maryland many years ago, I had a list of real estate brokers to interview. You were the only person who followed thru immediately and exerted no pressure on me what so ever to use your services. You gladly shared your expertise of the real estate market with me and your positive approach only made my respect and admiration grow during the process of selling of my house. You took what is one of life's most stressful situations and made it a good experience. Your commitment to your clients is unique, in this day and age, so the decision to hire you came very easily --- there was no contest really. You were in constant contact with me through out the whole process,very professional, knowledgeable, dedicated,determined, a good listener and were very communicative about the Market. You made me feel like I was your most important client and you did everything in preparing my house to sell it in this challenging economy. You inspire confidence. I was very impressed and greatly appreciated how you dealt with getting the house ready for market, using your business connections to help stage, repair or do whatever else was needed to get it sold. Your constant personal onsite attention to every detail was outstanding.
Your hands on approach to every aspect of this transaction no doubt lead to its quick sale in two days. You were realistic and confident and dealt with all the ups and downs with a great sense of humor and you were very diplomatic in dealing with any problems that arose. You never let anything fall thru the cracks, you kept me constantly informed and you even went above board in dealing with issues that being a single woman totally would have," sent me over the deep end", had I had to deal with them on my own. Instead you had total control of every situation and had me laughing most of the time when situations could have stressed me out. In this age of increasing impersonal contact, you delivered ---You went above and beyond your call of duty in performing what it took to sell my property. Your honesty, commitment, advice and strategies used to sell my property were so helpful to me and I always felt you had my best interests at heart.
I have done over a dozen real estate transactions and I can honestly say you have been the best agent I have had the pleasure to work with. Your availability to me at anytime and your true professionalism sets a standard for the real estate business. I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting the best experience, the best broker one can have whether buying or selling their property. You have a smooth, efficient, very professional and positive work ethic and I am sincerely grateful for the incredible job you did in selling my home. Thank you again for making this transaction so easy on me.
