You'll often hear that the Real Estate Business is one driven by relationships, and we can't agree more!  

We are proud of all of our efforts and so very pleased that nearly 95% of our business comes from referrals from family, friends, partners & past clients.  

We believe this reflects our dedication to the 'THRIVE Difference' as well as the trust we're able to build as we grow the THRIVE family.


“My husband and I just bought our first house with Chris and would definitely work with him again. He’s DC born and bred and has great knowledge of city. He was extremely responsive and was available no matter what time of day. All in all, I couldn’t recommend Chris enough. On top of everything, he was fun to work with, wasn’t pushy, and ended up helping us land a house that we love in this crazy competitive market.”
— Meredith Kimball
“Yianni is by far one of the best realtors in the DC area, and his knowledge and expertise made a tedious task go seamlessly. Yianni will not only continue to always be our real estate agent for future ventures but he is also a friend.”
— James Moore + Moe Ramos
“DC, Maryland, & Virginia folks buying or selling real estate in 2016, look no further than Yianni Konstantopoulos. You cannot do better searching for a new home than working with him!”
— Rich van Haste
“Thanks for all your help and hard work Yianni! (Being out of state), there’s no way we could have done this without you.”
— Meghan + Dave Zamborsky
“Chris made visiting properties a joy. As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and concerns and Chris was always available to help no matter how remedial my questions were. He really ensured I was comfortable with every part of the home buying process. His knowledge of the region is top notch and he worked hard to make sure I found a property I loved and could purchase at a very fair price. I highly recommend Chris.”
— Bob Fenity
“Yianni recently helped us purchase our home in Washington, DC. Being first time home buyers, finding an agent we could trust was very important to us. Needless to say, we could not be any happier with Yianni. His knowledge of the difficult Washington, DC market, responsiveness, and dedication to guiding us through our first home buying process made it a joy to work with him. We would highly recommend Yianni to anyone and will not hesitate to contact him with all our future realty needs.”
— Caitlyn Warner & Ian Lent
“Words cannot express our gratitude for the professionalism and dedication that Yianni brings to his job. He successfully sold our apartment at a record price for our condominium, and then helped us through a complicated negotiation to purchase our new home. Everything about both of these transactions was made easier because of Yianni. In a business that often feels opaque and a process that can be difficult, Yianni is an honest, helpful and always has your best interests in mind.”
— Charlie + Lissy Moskowitz
“Yianni successfully sold our condo at our desired price, without us even having to put it on the open market. His knowledge of the DC area from neighborhoods, to area schools, and local eats was outstanding and helped us secure a spectacular home in a community we love. We can’t thank him enough.”
— Jon & Julia Lawless
“Here’s the deal with Chris: he’s a very capable agent (knows every building code and loan officer in the book), but he’s also just kind of fascinating to explore DC with. As you drive around neighborhoods in DC with him, it becomes obvious that Chris knows the story of every historical landmark...he knows they name of the Jamaican jerk chicken guy in Colombia Heights...he knows the win/loss record of the high school football team in Petworth...he knows that a bar is opening up in a neighborhood before anyone else does...He’s like a DC cultural encyclopedia.

A lot of agents can take you to an open house and guide you through paper work. Chris makes you laugh and brings the city to life. “
— Patrick White
“We recently closed on our house and Simon Sarver was our realtor. Simon was amazing and truly made this process an enjoyable one. He constantly put us at ease and was extremely easy to talk to about anything that came up. I already plan on recommending him to other friends who are planning on getting into the housing market in the near future. Thank you Simon!”
— Wes + Breanne Garit
“If your search for a real estate agent brought you to Simon’s page, you can give up the hunt now — you’ve found one of the best around.
Simon could not have done a better job helping us find and buy our condo in D.C. He is a terrific listener, asks thoughtful questions, is diligent and thorough, and is a gifted strategist and negotiator. We were anxious about buying in a hyper-competitive market, but Simon proved to be our competitive edge. And to top it all off, he’s a genuinely great guy. With Simon on your side, you’re going to have a great experience.”
— Robert + Jenn David
“We just bought our first home and having a realtor like Simon put us at ease from the beginning. He was ultra responsive and proactive while we were searching for the perfect home. Where he really shined is after we put in our offer. He took all the stress away that comes with buying a home. Even better, a comparable down the street sold for much more than what we paid our house. All around A+ experience.”
