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
Ciara really went above and beyond my expectations. She was great throughout the entire process. As a first time homebuyer, she really helped to understand the different options and ensured that I received the best service on all fronts. Previously, I have worked with two realtors, and Ciara was without a doubt the best! I would highly recommend her to anybody. - Leah Newton, Arlington V September 2017
Manavi was super easy to work with. She is prompt and accurate.
A true pleasure to work with. - Regina Rameika - Aurora, August 2017
Everything about our experience with Pierre was top-notch! We can't thank him enough! - Jessica Nolen, Bethesda, 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 really knows what she's doing and made the process extremely easy on me. She's the best agent I've ever met. - Dane Hixson - Alexandria July 2017
We interviewed two other brokers to get a good sense of who would be the right fit for us. After the first meeting it was clear that Shawn was the best choice. He had a far superior understanding of the local market and was able to identify what I think was the best listing price. It was clear from the first meeting that Shawn is extremely organized and very well prepared. His presentation, which was far superior to the material prepared by the other agents, made clear that he would/could do everything possible to sell our condo for the price we were seeking. It was also clear from the first meeting that he was going to be very easy to work with. He wasn't in the least bit pushy and let his presentation speak for itself. It was clear what we were going to get from the commission, and my wife and I agree that Shawn was worth every penny.
In every way Shawn was an amazing agent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends/colleagues looking to buy or sell property. To begin with, Shawn demonstrated an understanding of the market trends as a whole and local nuances (he has detailed knowledge of presumably every condo building on the Orange Line) that was far beyond that of other real estate agents we interviewed. This knowledge, combined with his attention to detail, resulted in our being able to sell our condo within two weeks of it being on the market.
Shawn treated us like we were his only clients even though we knew this wasn't the case. He places a lot of importance on the open house, which is exactly what we wanted. Notably, we were looking for a new house while trying to sell ours, and I'm extremely impressed with the amount of time Shawn spent on both. He showed us dozens of properties and offered sound advice on and pros/cons of each. Before we found the house we ended up buying, Shawn worked with us to put a bid in on two properties. We, unfortunately, were outbid, but Shawn's advice and guidance through the process was extremely useful.
We couldn't be happier with the place we ultimately bought, and Shawn was able to negotiate a price below listing. When a couple of unforeseen last minute issues arose with the seller, I felt confident knowing we had Shawn as our representative. I expect we wouldn't have had such a good outcome with a different agent. Shawn's expertise, accessibility, and good nature make him well worth the commission.
Before working with Shawn, we hadn't had the experience of selling and buying a house at the same time. I expect anyone in this situation will have a lot of issues about which to worry, but I also expect my wife and I worried more than most. More to the point, I doubt we would be considered low maintenance clients. Despite our near constant concerns and ceaseless questions, Shawn was always accessible and extremely professional. I'm impressed with how much of his time he would devote to us.
Both Shawn and Matt are genuinely pleasant people. That goes a long way toward being a good agent since the agent and clients spend so much time together. However, they have the added quality of being very professional. It's a little thing, but I would be remiss if I didn't point out the fact that Shawn and Matt would wear a suit every single time we met them. No matter how short the meeting, no matter what day of the week, no matter the weather, they always wore suits. If not for a chance encounter with Matt in the grocery store I would question whether they owned clothes other than suits.
I feel confident saying that Shawn would treat any client as if they were his own. We always felt that Shawn had our best interests in mind and had the skills to achieve the best for us. - Jody And Mari Daniel, No 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
Coral is a true professional who will get your home sold at top price in minimal time and she is very considerate of the needs of the owners. - Dean And Jules Smith July 2017
Working with Kristin was amazing! Since this was the first home, Kristin made sure to keep the process as easy and simplified as possible. Kristin was also a fantastic agent because she was very understanding when I would get nervous or tell her i didn't really like a certain place. I always felt comfortable talking with Kristin about what I was looking for and always felt like she was on the same wave length as me. She was fantastic about following up to make sure I was happy with the searches set for me and what i liked and didn't like about each place we visited. Kristin's knowledge of the area as well as her enthusiasm in the Arlington real estate market made her the best choice for me. I would definitely recommend Kristin to anyone looking to buy a home in the Northern Virginia area! - Morgan Bean, Arlington 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
Brittany was an excellent choice to help us sell our home. She was responsive, objective, honest and very professional. She made excellent recommendations that got our home off the market very fast. Brittany helped us buy this home and we could not stop raving about her customer service. It was a no brainer to contact Brittany when we were moving. Great overall experience and a wonderful human being. - Stephen C. 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
After I noticed a "coming soon" sign in front of a house in an awesome neighborhood, I mentioned it to Nicole. She drove past the house, spoke to the owner, who happened to be outside, and the owner allowed her to view the house before it went up for sale. Shortly after she viewed the house, she called me and got me a showing before the house went on the market. After my husband and I saw the house, the next day, we put an offer on the house and it was under contract before it was listed.
Nicole was excellent to work with. - Emily Martino June 2017
