Ciara is very knowledgeable about real estate and all the parts of it. She is very nice , patient and accommodating to a nervous 1st time home buyer. - Joanne Macomber , Oakton October 2017
Pierre is extremely knowledgeable about the D.C. real estate market. We were first time homebuyers and he was very patient with all our questions about the process. He made the process incredibly easy and we found the perfect condo so much faster than we ever thought possible. He was recommended to us by a friend and I would absolutely recommend him to friends/family looking to buy in the DC/MD/VA area. - Chloe, Washington Dc October 2017
I never write reviews, but I feel compelled to share my experience working with Kristin. My wife and I don't believe there is another agent out there better than Kristin. We worked with her for several months before we found the perfect house. She was extremely patient and always had our best interests in mind. Considering her attention to detail when we visited properties, responsiveness (she responds to texts and emails immediately), and ability and willingness to explain things, my wife and I feel so lucky to have met/worked with her. She has an excellent understanding of the area and was able to run comps so we knew if a house was priced too high (we actually bought our house for a little bit less than the appraisal price!). I have already recommended her to two friends. - Bill, Reston, Va October 2017
We had to put our house on the market at the last minute due to an immediate out of state move. We hired Shazia Begin because she knows the market in Del Ray and she is intelligent, proactive, business-minded, and professional. She researched the market, recommended needed home improvements and de-cluttering/staging, discussed market timing, and recommended an action plan. Our house was under contract, above list price, in less than 2 days. This was not due to under-pricing. I was amazed that our house appraised.
She recommended home improvement, plumbing and electrical experts who were fantastic. Her communication was terrific and she was able to deal with difficult situations when my husband and I were at wits end. She went above and beyond to help us. I would highly recommend her. - Jon & Francesca, Del Ray October 2017
Manavi was great! She was helpful and accommodating with every visit. And more importantly, once we found our home, Manavi was super helpful and patient throughout the whole buying process. I will definitely recommend her a to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. - Gabe M., Arlington October 2017
Shawn's experience and professionalism was very important to me. He was so patient and understanding about our personal situation. We looked at many houses over a six month period but when the right one came along he and his recommended associates moved us through the buying process quickly and easily.
Shawn has become a good friend to us during this process. He was available to help every time we called, usually on short notice.
Extremely professional and cared about us.
Can't thank Shawn enough for hanging in there with us. - Danette And Randy, Resto October 2017
As a first time homebuyer, I felt immensely better having Coral at my side. She went above and beyond to make sure my fiance and I understood the process at each step of the way, and helped us to secure a home that is more than we ever could have hoped for. The experience would have been hard to beat! - Sarah, Arlington October 2017
Amy Folmsbee is one of the most enthusiastic Realtors I have ever known. She was great a communicating with me every step of the way and responsive immediately to me when I had a question. Her observations were intelligent and pertinent to my situation. She understood my needs and redirected me when necessary. Amy knows the area very well. In addition, we always had fun looking at the various properties. Her design background was an added plus and helped when we would consider changes that I wanted to make to a perspective property. Her referral of competent contractors was a blessing! I would highly recommend Amy for any type of property investment in all price categories. She is fantastic and C-21 is lucky to have her!

Working with John Winstead Jr at Century 21 - Redwood exceeded any of my expectations. As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the process. Right away John was incredibly friendly and professional, we started seeing houses right away. He even recommended a lending agent in the area, which I ended up using and greatly appreciated.
After a few days into my search John reached out to me about a property that wasn't on the market yet. It was a perfect fit, and he drafted an offer letter right away. He was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved my stress level even though I was on a very tight timeframe. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in my offer getting accepted. I highly recommend John! - Chris, Alexandria Va September 2017
Brittany had been very highly recommended to us, and yet her service still exceeded our expectations. Based on the recommendation we had received, we didn't really consider anyone else.
It was not hard to see why Brittany is one of the top agents in Northern VA. What was most impressive was her execution in submitting an offer in a very, very short amount of time. We came from a Sunday late-afternoon open house to an initial conversation with Brittany within just a couple hours, to making contact with a lender and getting pre-approved - all on that same Sunday. So she had us connected with a lender and our offer drafted by Monday night and submitted to the seller's agent by Tuesday noon - all done in less than 48 hours from when we saw the condo or even had a conversation with her. Total all star.
If not for Brittany's local knowledge and guidance on negotiating, I'm fairly confident we would not have realized how (A) underpriced the unit was and (B) how competitive the bidding would be and I doubt we would have bid properly to come out with the winning bid. We ended up narrowly beating out multiple other bidders, while still paying less than our ceiling and less than the eventual appraisal price. Equally importantly, the deposit/escrow and closing went very smoothly thanks to her organization.
Brittany was everything anyone would want in a realtor, but where she really shined was in her organization, her availability, her knowledge of the process and area, and her ability to communicate important things to us. - Jeff Powelson, Arlington August 2017
We met Lisa Tucker through a referral of a friend who recently purchased in an area we were interested in buying. As first-time home-buyers in an area that we are unfamiliar with, Lisa went above and beyond expectations to make our home buying experience easy and enjoyable.
In our first meeting, Lisa explained the home-buying process from start to finish with candor. She intuitively knew where we would have additional questions and was able to ease our fears and trepidations in our first meeting. She offered referrals to complete our home buying team, answered all of our questions at any time of day, and her disposition was always positive and encouraging.
When we visited homes, we never felt pressured. She offered pros and cons of each property and clearly listened to our wants and needs and helped us to prioritize what was really important to us so we could make the best decision for us. Lisa also proved that she understands the competitive market and advised us accordingly. She prepared us for disappointment and set us up for success.
A key example of this is when we put an offer on our current home. The house went on the market that morning and Lisa rearranged her schedule into make sure we could get in to see the house. The minute we said, 'This is it!' Lisa sprang into action calling the listing agent to learn more about the seller so that we could fine tune our offer to their needs while maintaining our budget and move-in timeline. She helped us craft a personal letter to the owners, which, ultimately 'sealed-the-deal'. We had our offer on the house accepted within nearly a business day from submitting it.
Lisa followed us through the contingency documents, house inspection, and stepped in for us on our behalf while we were out of town to help with any final walk-through obligations. To say that she went above and beyond is truly an understatement. Lisa treated us as if we were her family.
Lisa was phenomenal throughout the whole home buying process start to finish. As a realtor and individual, Lisa is polite, understanding, friendly, patient, knowledgeable, helpful, trustworthy, professional, accessible, respectful, and approachable. She communicates clearly and in a timely manner.
Her customer service skills are above and beyond the expected norm. Lisa was real pleasure to work with and we could not have asked for anything more. Ideally all individuals would be as skilled and as well versed in these personal qualities and the aspects of their job as Lisa is.
Lisa was able to provide us with our dream home and we could not have imagined the home buying process being as smooth, simple, and worry free as Lisa made it for us. She is a phenomenal realtor and an even better person. If you are looking to buy or sell your home, we cannot emphasize enough that Lisa Tucker is the best option for you. She will deliver on your wants and needs and do so in an impressive manner.
Thank you Lisa for making our dream come true! - Ryan And Denise Amato- B August 2017
John Knew is a great realtor. I wouldn't use anyone else - Julie Warner, Alexandria August 2017
No one knows Northern Virginia better than Liz Crawford. She's the most knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, honest and approachable person to work with. I'm lucky to have had her for both of my home purchases in Virginia. - Bonnie - Alexandria, Va July 2017
She's very knowledgeable about the community I was interested in buying/selling. She comes with a great reputation and I highly recommend using her. - Dara Rosenfeld, Alexandr July 2017
Laurie Haley represented us in the most professional, considerate and friendly manner possible. She knew the local area and how to market our property. We had a unique property which required patience and strategy. Laurie provided everything from checking our property while we were away to helping us sell items on facebook when the property sold. We can't say enough about her friendly, caring manner and helping attitude. She was very responsive to our concerns and questions throughout the entire process - listing through selling. Highly recommend Laurie.
Laurie provided outstanding service throughout the selling process and at closing. We could not have asked for a better agent.
We can't say enough about Laurie. She was outstanding in all categories. - Walt And Janice , Lovett July 2017
Eric Solomon is clearly an expert in every aspect of the sale process. His communications were always clear and timely. He has a wonderful personality and was fun to work with. My experience was smooth and easy from the start. I can honestly say that Eric made it stress-free. I feel that I got the best price possible for the house we sold and it sold quickly. You can't ask for more than that! - Ljnevares, Arlington July 2017
Shelly was great! I am efficient, organized and I have a "get it done now" personality. Shelly was able to handle me and she was always available and ready to meet and talk. She had great ideas and she followed through immediately with everything we discussed.
The night we sold our house, Shelly was attending a charity event. It was late on a Saturday night and she was a presenter at the event. She was on the phone and working on her computer in between her time as a presenter. She even offered to stop by our house around midnight if we wanted. We had a bidding war going on and she was on top of everything. We finally sold the house and signed the contract at 1:00 in the morning. I was blown away by her level of commitment.
I keep a very neat house and pride myself on my decorating skills. Shelly has an amazing eye. She immediately came in and looked around the rooms and made suggestions for how we could rearrange the furniture for the open house. Every suggestion was brilliant and worked well. Our house sold in two days!
I would highly recommend her!!!! - Kathryn Roth, Arlington June 2017
I would refer Matt to any buyer. He always pays attention to details and he is extremely informative. Furthermore, during my home buying process, He did not let me settle for the wrong home/investment and in a multiple bid offer he helped my offer come out on top. - Sarah Graham, Northern V June 2017
This was my second time working with Sandra. She will work tirelessly to ensure your goals are met. She listened to my priorities and is very caring. When it came time for negotiations she worked with all parties so all sides could benefit. She also helped out with all aspects of selling the home and even brought her personal items to decorate the unit. I will definitely be working with Sandra again! - Connie Isler - Arlington June 2017
Rachel made the experience of selling a home worry and stress free. She delivered on everything that she told us she would do. Sold our house in record time, which she knew was a concern of ours. Having 3 little ones in the home, we were worried about the entire process. Rachel constantly provided me (the worrier) with positive affirmations and a hug, to let me know everything would work out just fine. AND THEY DID!!!
I have nothing but nice things to say about Rachel, because even through my stressful tears, she said she had everything taken care of. I would definitely provide Rachel's information to anyone looking to sell a home. She came highly recommended by recent neighbors and we don't regret the decision at all!
Thank you Rachel for everything beyond the house. - Selina Coley, Purcellvil June 2017
