Real Estate Rebate Case Studies

In real estate, 90% of transactions go smoothly; the 10% that go wrong, go horribly wrong. It is important to work with an agent with the experience to get you through anything.

Our clients include first time home buyers, oversea transfers, experienced investors, new construction buyers, and much more. Here are just a few examples of our successful transactions in the DC metro area.

Kevin and Nicole Lefton

Kevin and Nicole Lefton

$15,498 Rebate

Kevin and Nicole knew what they wanted and where they wanted to be when it came to their house search. They read the reviews online and decided to call Glass House to learn more about the rebate. Before they decided to work with Glass House they wanted to meet their agent (probably wondering, ‘whats the catch?”), which Glass House was happy to accommodate. After a 45-minute conversation, they knew Glass House was right for them.

Within a couple weeks, the Lefton’s were under contract on a beautiful home in a highly desirable location.

“My wife and I had a great experience working with Khalil and his team and we highly recommend their services. I will be the first to admit that I am not an easy client and regularly voice my opinions and concerns. Khalil’s team was prepared every step of the way and always fully addressed my questions and concerns. They were exceptionally attentive to all of our needs and never pressured us to make any decisions that we did not feel comfortable making. Khalil met with us personally and he was always prompt and responsive to all of our inquiries. He is remarkably knowledgeable regarding the northern Virginia real estate market. Also, his use of modern technology made the process seamless. Obviously, the icing on the cake was the rebate that we received at closing.

It was great working with someone who understood that clients today do a significant amount of their own homework in buying their home. Khalil understands that concept and compensates his clients for the value that they provide during the process. We recommend his services and will be using his team for future transactions.”

Heather did all of her research before she called Glass House in the spring of 2013. She sold her home and was aggressively looking for a tear down lot in the town of Vienna. Her criteria were specific; she needed an agent that was responsive and also aggressive because the market for a tear down was competitive.

Glass House set up an auto e-mail alert for homes that fit her criteria and when a home came on the market and was taken down 15 minutes later, she called her agent to find out what was going on.

“We chose to work with Khalil because he focuses on exactly what is most important to us in a realtor: negotiating and closing a deal. We were happy to do most of the finding of a property ourselves, and were thrilled to find a top-notch realtor who charged a fee that actually reflected the way people buy houses in the Internet age.

Khalil gave us great advice that saved us tens of thousands of dollars and worked tirelessly to help us close on our contract within a tight timeframe. We have paid three times as much in realtor fees in the past and never received the kind of true advocacy and professionalism we got from Khalil. We recommend him to all our friends and family and will use him again in the future.”

Bernie and Bridgette

Bernie and Bridgette | Springfield, VA

$21,200 Rebate

When Bernie and Bridgette wanted to move closer to their daughter’s school they knew where they wanted to be and what kind of house they needed. They wanted an agent to “open doors” but what they got was a team of experienced agents that went above and beyond their expectations.

Prices and condition of homes varied widely in Bernie’s and Bridgette’s search area so figuring out what a home was worth ended up being more complicated than they imagined. Over a 5-month span, Bernie toured homes with Glass House agents and made offers on 2 different homes before getting their current home.

“I initially just wanted someone to open the door for me because I move every 5-7 years, but then when I met Khalil I realized he was more proficient and fluent than most other Realtors that I have met.”

Jonathan and Michelle Decarlo, Mclean, VA

Jonathan and Michelle Decarlo | McLean, VA

$14,800 Rebate

Jon and Michelle were interested in seeing a home listed with Glass House Real Estate. They met Khalil at the home as prospective buyers and it quickly became clear that the home was not right for them. They told Khalil they wanted to represent themselves in a home purchase because of bad experiences with other agents in the past. They were pleasantly surprised when Khalil offered unsolicited advice and tips.

They decided to work with Glass House Real Estate as it turned out that most listing agents did not want to open doors for them on short notice and evenings.

“I’ve worked with several Realtors and had not encountered one that I would recommend until I worked with Khalil. Khalil clearly has a wealth of experience working in a competitive real estate market. He was very professional, provided insightful guidance as we encountered various complexities, and went to great lengths to ensure that the process between our offers acceptance and settlement went smoothly…Khalil took the time to get to know what we were looking for…We have referred Khalil to family members who have also used him.”


Brandon Herman | Washington, D.C.

$16,000 Rebate & $6,000 Commission Savings

When Brandon decided to sell his Georgetown Condo and buy a single-family home in DC, he turned to Glass House Real Estate upon a recommendation from a co-worker. His original plan was to use Glass House for his purchase and a “traditional” agent for the sale of his condo. Upon getting to know Khalil and his team, he felt that there was no better team for the job.

Brandon scoured every corner of DC and Glass House was always available to get him into homes on short notice. When he found the home he wanted to make an offer on, Glass House suggested a pre-offer inspection that resulted in his offer being accepted. When it came to selling Brandon’s condo, it showed like a gem and sold quickly and close to asking price.

“My wife and I had a great experience selling our Georgetown condo and purchasing a Chevy Chase home with Khalil. He was honest, reliable, and well informed. Would highly recommend Khalil if you are buying or selling a home in the DC region.”
