BIO of The True Brightwood Realtor (Follow Me on Facebook at:  www.facebook.com/TheTrueBrightwoodRealtor)

Uniqca V. Powell was born and raised in the Brightwood subdivision of Washington, DC. She was actually reared in a real estate environment. She lived in a ten (10) bedroom home located in the 800 block of Rittenhouse Street, NW, where her father rented out rooms for rent for the first 19 to 20 years of Uniqca’s life. Uniqca continued to carry on the property management/landlord role for three (3) additional years (after her father fell asleep in death) until she sold the home in 1991. Uniqca resided in this home from 1968 to 1991. Uniqca attended the Brightwood schools, namely: Whittier Elementary School, Paul Junior High School (currently known as Paul Public Charter School), and graduated from Coolidge Senior High School in 1986.

Later Uniqca moved back into the Brightwood subdivision from 1993 to 1995 and later moved to Capitol Hill and resided there from 1996 to 2009. While Uniqca liked Capitol Hill, she really LOVES Brightwood and missed it very much. Her roots are there, her wonderful, fond memories are there, and her HEART is there. As a result, in 2005, she and her husband purchased a home in the 700 block of Nicholson Street, NW and physically moved there in 2009, where they currently reside. She is so delighted to be back in Brightwood where she and her husband raise their two youngest children in the beautiful Brightwood neighborhood. She loves to walk along the treeline streets, she loves the neighbors, the parks, recreational centers, and schools for her children. She loves the convenience to the many stores, shops, metro, and easy access to Silver Spring, Bethesda, downtown DC and more. Uniqca has lived in Brightwood for a sum total oF 30+ years. Uniqca is PASSIONATE about BrightwoodUniqcaLIVES Brightwood .. Uniqca LOVES Brightwood.

RESUME:  (Also, see Testimonials below):


1968 - 1991 (Property Management)
While growing up in the Brightwood subdivision of NW Washington, DC, Uniqca was trained in property management from her youth on.  While growing up in a 10 bedroom home which was rented out for the first 23 years of her life, we guess, you can say that Uniqca was born with a real estate spoon in her mouth.  Uniqca truly has experienced a lifetime of real estate.

1993 - 2003 (Loan Closing Delivery Coordinator / Loan Processor)
For ten (10) years, Uniqca worked in the Underwriting and, then, the Closing Department for Berkshire Mortgage Finance, L.P. She processed millions of dollars of loans for Multifamily, Commercial, and Healthcare Facilities. Types of loans included: assumptions, refinance, purchase, construction to permanent, etc. Investors included: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, and at that time, NationsBank.

2001 to Present (Real Estate Investor)
Uniqca and her husband started Farmers Home Improvements in October 2001. Their Development / Renovation Consultant Departments work hard to revitalize the community by purchasing and renovating homes which are in distress. This allows them to sell affordable housing to prospective buyers throughout DC.  They also educate homeowners who are in default with their mortgage and provide tips to SAVE THEIR HOME.  Later, in 2012, Uniqca and her husband changed the name of the Company to Farmershi Consultant.  They have since branched out to include Property Management and Leasing Departments.

Testimonial #1: “I am writing this letter to enthusiastically recommend Uniqca Powell's services as a Real Estate Agent. I have gotten to know Mrs. Powell over the past year, both as a Real Estate consultant in the purchase of my own property and as a friend. In both capacities, I have been most impressed with Mrs. Powell, and I am confident that she will be an exceptional Real Estate Agent to anyone who chooses to use her service.

In the purchase of my property, Mrs. Powell stood out, as someone who is devoted to facilitating her client in finding the property that meets their needs. Repeatedly, she researched and produced a number of homes that fit the specific criteria that I had established in terms of location, cost, and accessibility to public transportation. Her recommendations, simply confirmed that she is a Real Estate agent with exceptional insight and devotion to hard work. Further, Mrs. Powell demonstrated she is also a person of unusual energy, maturity, and interpersonal skills.

In short, I recommend Mrs. Powell's services strongly and without reservation.

"Carlet Auguste (Buyer in Baltimore, MD)

Testimonial #2: "I wish to recommend Mrs. Uniqca V. Powell to anyone who are interested in selling their home. She is very analytical, well-planned, and organized with her business expertise.

She sold my home and was settled in less than one month with her dedicated and professional team."

Cynthia P. Douglas-Lewis (Seller in Riggs Park, DC)

Testimonial #3: "Dear Uniqca Powell, I would like to thank you for the diligent and professional service that you have provided to us on the purchase of our new home and the sale of our investment property. Both transactions proved to be a test of will-power.

Dealing with difficult sellers, buyers and agents (and we had some on both transactions) seem to be one of your many traits. The various attack strategies that you suggested enabled us to achieve the results that we desired.

You are a proactive real estate agent . . . which is VERY different than a reactive Agent and that works well with the various situations that we were thrown into. Anyone wanting to buy or sell, we would not hesitate to send them your way. Thanks for the assistance and dedication."

Jermaine Hector (Seller and Buyer in Brookland, Brentwood & Old City #1 in DC)

Testimonial #4: "Hi, this is a letter of thanks and recommendation for Uniqca Powell. I am grateful for your time, patience, and energy. You hung in there and worked hard. There were a lot of ups and downs and disappointments, but you never gave up!

I just want to say: Thank you for a job well done.

Carolyn Brown (Buyer in Deanwood, DC) P. S. My House (Smile)”

Testimonial #5: "Thank you for the tremendous support you've given us an an extra special thanks for sharing in the hard work, sweat and tears, and making us laugh the whole way through the sale of our house.

We could not have done it without your insight, expertise and devotion as a Real Estate agent.

You held our hands from the start to the finish, and made that chapter in out life one that we will always regard with pleasure. You really are an exceptional Realtor, and we will highly recommend you without any reservation to those we know looking to sell or buy."

Keith and Donna Neal (Sellers in Crofton, MD)

Testimonial #6: "Mrs. Uniqca Powell of RE/MAX Real Estate did a remarkable job selling our home. Uniqca Powell was extremely knowledgeable and gave us thorough information about the housing market in the Washington, DC area. We felt confident, at all times, she was representing me and my interests. She kept me informed. With Uniqca, we knew where we stood at all times. She also used every means available to market the property, a true professional. Her attention to detail, follow through, commitment to excellence, and work ethic places her in a class alone. Retaining Uniqca Powell to handle your real estate business matters ensure you receive the best Realtor service. We give her our highest recommendation and do so without reservation."

John and Deniece Means (Sellers in Hillcrest, DC)

Testimonial #7: "Dear Uniqca Powell, Where do I begin?? Mrs. Powell is a very thorough and knowledgeable real estate agent. She knows her stuff. She has the ability to put your mind at ease even though this may be the biggest purchase of your life. I worried about nothing, especially when I knew she was handling it. I compare her to family because that's the amount of trust I had bestowed upon her. Bottom line is Uniqca Powell is simply the best. Some people may go the extra mile, but she goes even beyond that. My story is a testament to that.

The whole real estate process began back in Spring of 2008 when I was introduced to Mrs. Powell by a close colleague. From day one, we were off to the races. I explained to her my situation (expecting a baby boy in July) that I wanted to have a place for my son to come home to. While on the way to see a property, I stumbled upon a house that was being renovated and informed Uniqca that I wanted to see it. We went over to the house and met the owner and asked to see the place ... A contract was drawn up, and I was on my way to purchasing my first home.

The home buying process was real stressful, especially since we were dealing with the owner/agent of the property, but Uniqca always kept me level headed. The seller ran us around in circles, from being unresponsive to changing financial terms. Uniqca handled it all, no matter the time of day. It came to a point that I wasn't sure if I had the finances required to close due to the seller's requests/changes. That's when the true test of my real estate agent's abilities came to light. She equipped me with the necessary tools to overcome my financial issues and made my dream a reality. I was able to provide my son with his own house to call home.

I am a firm believer that all people should have the following: a good banker, a good tailor, a good mechanic, and now an exceptional real estate agent. Thank you so much Uniqca, you were a blessing in disguise."

D. White (Buyer in Brookland, DC)

Testimonial #8: "We are writing to express our pleasure and gratitude with real estate agent, Uniqca V. Powell, who represented us in our recent purchase of a single-family home. Mrs. Powell guided us through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer to closing the deal.

We credit Mrs. Powell with coordinating a smooth and stress-free homebuying experience. This is our first purchase of a home and never did we imagine such a pleasurable experience. Mrs. Powell is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without her.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Mrs. Powell and her expertise, and we highly recommend her to everyone."

Richard and Carolyn Bennett (Buyers in Congress Heights, DC)

Testimonial #9: "Uniqca thank you so much for being the best ever.

Ms. Small, I am also sending this letter to you because it is important that you know that Uniqca gives her best and her best makes happy customers. She represents your company well, and she should be commended for the excellent image and service she provides under Prudential Carruthers Realtors. My suggestion to you is to do whatever is necessary to keep Uniqca for I can truly say I would go to whatever company you work under."

Janice Marshall (Buyer in Oxon Hill, MD)

Testimonial #10: "To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this letter, because I strongly recommend using Mrs. Uniqca Powell as a realtor. I have worked with other real estate agents, but none compared to Uniqca. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable in EVERY aspect of the home buying process. Uniqca wears many hats and not only knows her job as a realtor, but she is also very involved in the roles that loan officers, contractors, title companies, and even county housing officials perform. She is well-informed about the types of grants and programs that are out there to help homebuyers, to include first-time home buyers. Mrs. Powell is extremely motivated, and continues to keep a positive attitude and make buying a home a positive process, despite unanticipated obstacles. It has definitely been a pleasure working with Uniqca, because not only does she get things done, but she gets things done right. It is not very often that a person can say that they have conducted business with someone, like Uniqca, that they can completely trust and holds the same high standard of morals with every person that they interact with."

Melissa Pine (Buyer in Laurel, MD)

Testimonial #11: "We are writing to thank all of you at Prudential Carruthers for getting our house sold at 1340 Independence Avenue, SE. A special thanks though to Uniqca Powell for her diligent, tenacious, and persistent efforts. She maintained constant communication between us, the seller, and the buyer, both parties being out of town. The buyer was also out of the country. She even coordinated repair work suggested by the buyer's inspector and required by the VA inspector. We were not very optimistic about making our "capital gains break" deadline, but she did it with just 3 days to spare.

This miracle should save us with our taxes this coming April. Whatever bonuses are available, she more than deserves them. Again, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you....

THE PARKERS" (Sellers in Capitol Hill / Old City #1, DC)

Testimonial #12: “My name is Tracie Robertson and I am a second time homebuyer. I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Uniqca Powell thru a friend who highly recommended her to assist me in my home buying purchase. From the beginning, Mrs. Powell was very poised, professional and enthusiastic about my home buying process. I felt very safe and comfortable working with Mrs. Powell. She was always prepared with listings and ready to see a thousand houses a day, if that was what I wanted!!

Time was of the essence, I was renting a house from my sister who was selling and she also used Mrs. Powell as her realtor because of my comfort and trust level I had developed with Mrs. Powell. Mrs. Powell successfully closed both deals in a record setting time of 30 days!! I was in my new house a week before the new owners took possession of my sister's house.

My sister had a second house for sell and because she was so pleased and impressed by Mrs. Powell, she asked her to sell this property as well. Mrs. Powell again within a month found a buyer had the inspection and was ready to close!! Mrs. Powell is very trustworthy and has now become a friend of our family. We will always use her services as well as recommend her to all our family and friends.”

Tracie Robertson (Buyer in Fort Dupont Park, DC)

Testimonial #13: “My name is Elliot Doomes, and I am a second time homebuyer. I met Mrs. Uniqca Powell through a recommendation from a friend who knew my family was in need of a home.

We felt extremely comfortable with Mrs. Powell, and we appreciated her patience as we visited nearly 30 homes over the course of 4 months. Whether early in the morning, late in the evening, or many a Saturday afternoon, Mrs. Powell provided timely guidance and expert advice as we navigated the Washington, DC real estate market. My wife and I also appreciated her expertise in assessing the physical condition of the homes as well as her knowledge of the D.C. permit process.

However, what I appreciated the most about Mrs. Powell is that I felt her interests were aligned with my own; she wanted to see this deal get done just as badly as I wanted it to be done. This sense of urgency was helpful especially since we started shopping for a new home in the dead of winter, and we had to take an aggressive approach to finding home in an area with limited inventory.

Finally, I would have no reservations about recommending Mrs. Powell to any of my friends or family. I believe she is an able and formidable realtor that can be an asset in purchasing a home in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.”

Elliot Doomes {Buyer(s) in Shepherd Park, DC}

Testimonial #14: “For Uniqca V. Powell, Thank you very much for assisting us at Metrowide to sell a troublesome vacant lot we purchased at a local tax sale. We were literally deserted by another real estate agent who was afraid to even attempt to do the necessary research on the validity of a claim by an investor who threatened to sue us. You dived into the situation, but not without first looking where you leaped! First, your familiarity with this type of situation was clearly evident by your unwavering confidence that this lot could be sold. Second, you helped us uncover the problem actually created by the local tax office. Then, third, you devised a strategy to solve the problem, which involved us conducting an independent survey and then negotiating with the adjacent property owners who could not complete a timely and complete disposition of their property without the purchase of our lot. The result was an unexpected quick closing.

It is simply amazing how much your experience and our need converged at just the right time. We were definitely impressed and we can only look forward to transacting future purchases and sales with you.”

Talib Abdus-Shahid Yewande George Metrowide Realty Investors, LLC” (Sellers in LeDroit Park, DC)

Testimonial #15:   "If you want a real estate agent who will be there for you throughout the entire sale or rental process, Uniqca is that person.  She is detail oriented and always makes sure that all transactions are in the client’s best interest.  Uniqca never gives up and will go the extra mile to get the sales or rental deal done.  I felt comfortable with her recommendations because she is trustworthy.  Uniqca recently sold my condo in DC. Although other condos were going for a lower price in the complex, Uniqca, was able to get a higher price for our condo because of her excellent negotiation skills. 

I found Uniqca to be a hardworking and dedicated professional. In an attempt to sell my property, I used other realtors before meeting Uniqca.  Not one of the other realtors was able to get the property sold but Uniqca did.  Within a couple weeks after listing my property, Uniqca had several interested buyers.  I was happy that I chose Uniqca to represent my property.  She is an excellent real estate agent."
