Aleida Katherine

This was our second home purchase with Daniel. Just like before he listened to our wants and needs and never showed us anything outside our budget. This time the market was more challenging with low inventory, but he took the time to show us the houses we wanted to see, sometimes with little notice since things were going quickly. He was always ready with measured insight and advice to make us feel like we were making informed decisions, even in an uncertain market! Ultimately we found a beautiful house in the right neighborhood for the right price thanks to him. He also helped us sell our old home, and ultimately we were able to navigate a non-standard arrangement with smooth sailing to sell our home for above asking thanks to him. Daniel is kind, patient, and sharp! Exactly what you want in a realtor!

Julia Hetherington

Scott was a wonderful friend and guide during our home search. He understood what we needed as a family and ultimately steered us to a house that we would have never landed on otherwise, but it ended up being the perfect fit. Additionally, he was exceptionally well-versed in home renovation costs. We toured a number of homes that would’ve required immediate work, and he was able to concisely compile a rough estimate list of renovation costs for each home to better inform our decision. All in all, Scott made the process an incredibly positive one in a very daunting market. We would always recommend him to friends and family!

Michael Gilmore

Scott Sachs with the Synergy Group is the BEST. His knowledge of the Northern Virginia area is top notch. We could throw out any intersection or neighborhood, and he immediately was giving us the inside scoop. He has an extensive network of agents, contractors, and handymen that also helped throughout the process. He helped us navigate the offer process and eventual acceptance process smoothly, answering all the questions we had along the way. This included cost estimates for updates, advice on the cleanest offer to provide, information on school systems, etc. In such a crazy market, we would not have gotten our home without Scott Sachs. I would recommend Scott to any buyer looking to find their dream home in Northern VA/DC.

Brigette Myers

We could not be more grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Daniel to buy and sell in DC. In this competitive market, Daniel helped us move quickly to make a winning offer in a highly sought after area. We also utilized his expertise to sell our home, which while a stressful time, was very manageable with Daniel's realistic expectation setting, frequent communication, and good sense of humor. Throughout both processes you could also see Daniel's long time connection to the area with a list of experts for everything. We highly recommend reaching out to the Synergy Group when you are getting ready to buy or sell!

Matthew Filosa

Daniel & the team at The Synergy Group are phenomenal real estate professionals who I could not recommend more highly. As we were looking to buy, Daniel consistently was able to get us into houses right as they hit the market (and in some cases, before). His relationships and neighborhood expertise allowed us to get an offer in early and ultimately beat substantial competition. I can say definitively we would not have gotten our house if it wasn't for Daniel. I am very grateful for all his hard work for us and I cannot recommend him enough.

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Daniel Schuler and the Synergy Group this year to both sell our condo and buy a new house. We had heard wonderful things from friends who had worked with Daniel, and we feel so lucky that we had the opportunity to work with him. He successfully sold our condo quickly and for the price we wanted, and he even worked with us remotely for a significant period of time while we were out of town. During this time, he was able to get our condo fixed up and improved (both with repairs and cosmetic changes), packed up, and sold very quickly and efficiently. It was an excellent process for us, and we couldn’t believe how he managed to make the whole thing stress-free. On the buying side, he worked with us tirelessly to find our dream home, spending all the time it took to do both facetime (when we weren’t local) and in-person tours. He gave great advice…

He gave great advice, had excellent vision and a design background which helped us think through potential renovations and expenses, and gave us candid and honest feedback through the whole process. We ended up with the perfect home and are so grateful for everything he did for our family over the past year. Thank you, Daniel! We’ll be forever recommending you and look forward to keeping in touch.

Scott Sachs is truly amazing! Scott actually helped us purchase our first property in DC and our 2nd! Both were great investments and perfect for our situation. I trust Scott and he is incredible in terms of connections with a highly reliable and professional team of contractors to help with all aspects of home purchase, ownership and when you are ready to sell. When it did come time to sell, of course we called Scott. He provided thoughtful and professional advice on how to prepare our home for the market. He was spot on! 8 offers in a matter of days and thousands above asking! He also had ideas on how to make our move efficient and helped us make connections in our new community. I cannot say enough about Scott! He was one of the most important contacts we made when coming to DC. Scott is the best there is in the business.

Scott Sachs is a freaking national treasure. I'm erecting a small monument to him in my gorgeous backyard in my new home. My wife and I first worked with Scott 8 years ago, when he got us into an under priced condo in upper NW DC. To be clear, it was a giant dump - but we saw Scott's vision for what it could be. He is a renovation swami. Lo and behold, 6 months and several contractors later it was a beautiful and affordable home, that ultimately almost doubled in value during our 7 years living there. As our family grew, we became ready to sell and partnered once again with Scott, who somehow managed to look younger and sharper than when we first met him. Scott generated a ridiculous amount of interest in our home. We were are Redfin "hot home" within like one hour of posting. The night before our big open house, I went home to straighten the artwork. Walked in, heard my fire alarms,…

As our family grew, we became ready to sell and partnered once again with Scott, who somehow managed to look younger and sharper than when we first met him. Scott generated a ridiculous amount of interest in our home. We were are Redfin "hot home" within like one hour of posting. The night before our big open house, I went home to straighten the artwork. Walked in, heard my fire alarms, smelled smoke, and discovered a small fire in our attic. Called 911 first, my wife second, and Scott third. The fire fighters came and addressed the fire by spraying my entire house with hundreds of gallons of water, which managed to destroy all the floors and walls. I called Scott dumbfounded and sobbing. He dropped what he was doing and was the first one on the scene after the fire fighters left, mopping up water with towels, getting on the phone with fire damage remediation companies, and literally giving my wife a shoulder to cry on. A short and somewhat painful 2 months later, the house was completely fixed and sold for above ask. Was it a miracle? No. It was Scott Freaking Sachs. He went so far above and beyond the call of duty and has remained by our side as we get settled into our new home. Consider yourself lucky if you sign with Scott and his team. We sure were.

Working with Compass, we sold our townhouse on Capitol Hill in D.C. this last March. I can't stress enough how impressed we were by Compass, and specifically, Scott Sachs, and his team's approach, expertise, patience and attitude in securing and facilitating a sale that had some red-tape difficulties and unexpected delays attached to it. We were also greatly relieved and pleased with the company's responsiveness. If a call or text was not answered at once, in person, it was returned within less than an hour, typically, a real boon in a situation that is always fraught with anxiety and stress for a seller or buyer. Scott's calm and understanding professionalism saved the day more than once. Further, Scott wisely started the asking price at a very attractive number for both buyer and seller, and then, with his impressive knowledge of the market and instinct for buyer credibility, was …

We were also greatly relieved and pleased with the company's responsiveness. If a call or text was not answered at once, in person, it was returned within less than an hour, typically, a real boon in a situation that is always fraught with anxiety and stress for a seller or buyer. Scott's calm and understanding professionalism saved the day more than once. Further, Scott wisely started the asking price at a very attractive number for both buyer and seller, and then, with his impressive knowledge of the market and instinct for buyer credibility, was able to fetch a price well above and beyond the initial ask, from a reliable, problem-free buyer. (There were, in fact, more than six above-ask offers inside of four days from the Open House.) Compass' use of all modern technologies was applied to their selling strategy, producing seamless communication with all parties concerned, as well as a stunning online virtual presentation of the house, so beautifully staged by a Compass associate company, at a very fair price. Finally, the entire Compass team exhibited great common sense, empathy, honesty and humor throughout the transaction. We had a few very tense weeks dealing with the aforementioned administrative hassles, and Scott's team got us through. They were always up-to-date and involved in all relevant info, and really did hold our hands right up to the closing and beyond. I often had to chastise Scott for working eight day a week, but he can't be stopped. You just can't go wrong working with this company. There is not one fool or scoundrel among them! Thank you, Compass, for your work and effort on our behalf. You got us through a real tough time and left us with healthier bank accounts than we've ever had before! I recommend this firm with no hesitation whatsoever.

From start to finish, Daniel guided us through the process of selling and buying. He took our personal circumstances into account and made reasonable recommendations that led to a great outcome. Our home sale was more successful than we ever expected. Daniel made time for us, worked around our schedule, and we're very happy with all of the outcomes.

We were introduced to Scott through old friends and thank goodness for that. We immediately liked him and when we toured our first house, he was quick to point out major issues with drainage and with windows in the property that needed to be replaced, which made us trust him from the beginning because he wasn't one of those agents that just wanted us to buy a house and be done with us. He also really listened to us when we told him what kind of layout and house we were looking for and was able to help us narrow down our list, especially since we were buying during set house hunting trips while we lived in Pittsburgh. In the midst of an insane market, he completely went to bat for us on a house and he is the primary reason we actually had an offer accepted in this current market. We know he was insanely busy but he made us feel like we were his only clients. Unfortunately tho…
