I proudly support our local charitable organizations through my participation in our Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage CARES foundation. I contribute a portion of each of my commission checks to CARES. Since inception, CARES has donated more than $1 million to a wide array of non-profit educational, health, welfare, environmental and cultural arts organizations in the Mid-Atlantic area. I  also donate to St. Jude Children's Hospital, HomeStretch, Cornerstones, and  other local charities. 

    I am also a member of the Reston Chamber of Commerce and serve on several committees.

After serving 21 honorable years with the United States Secret Service he transitioned into Real Estate. His unique knowledge of Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. has proven helpful to his clients. Dave and his wife work together as a team and understand the stresses of relocating, having done that several times when he worked for the Federal government.

    Dave's relationships, knowledge of sophisticated database technology, analytical approach to tasks and commitment to service, honesty and integrity are the cornerstones of the Dave and JoAnne Adams Group.

    What Clients Are Saying


    " Dave...thank you for all your efforts to make everything easier." Carlos and Betty J

    "Dave and JoAnne did a masterful job of selling our home. They exceeded our high expectations. We are very busy people and had a lot going on in our lives and they coached us through the process from start to finish. They helped us sell a house in a lukewarm market. They spent a lot of time helping us prepare our home for sale, giving us useful suggestions about how to make our home more appealing to buyers. They helped arrange contractors and even met several at the house when we could not be there. They pulled together comprehensive data and market intelligence that allowed us to price the house appropriately. Dave and JoAnne did a particularly good job of helping us negotiate with the eventual buyers and arrive at contract terms that were acceptable to both parties. Throughout the entire process, we felt Dave and JoAnne were honest and ethical and always had our best interests at heart. We would strongly recommend them to friends who are putting their home on the market." Karen Miller

    "Selling a house and buying a new house is not an easy process but Dave and Joanne have surpassed my expectations. They are extremely professional, responsive and they put their heart into this process. They made sure we found our "true home" more than a house! Their negotiation skills are 5 stars. They made sure to make the transaction as smooth as possible, going over rigorously every details and numbers so all is taking care before Closing.But mostly what I found, beyond their REALTORS job, is their passion about what they do to help people, and they treated us like family more than clients and looked for our best interest in every way possible. This alone is priceless!" Stephanie Offerdahl
