I found Zach somehow and I consider myself lucky to have done so. I knew nothing about the real estate market in Loudoun County before meeting Zach. If I were to give advice, I would say tell Zach what you want and let him take it from there. He got me a great deal and helped me find everything else I needed. So now I have a great house, customized just the way I want it, and have the cheapest mortgage anyone was offering. I also tried to stray and go it alone and almost got myself into an awful situation with some really bad granite, yet Zach welcomed me back and helped diffuse the problem I created for myself. To conclude, let Zach do what he does, you will come out ahead.
