Testimonials

Mike and Jen were outstanding in helping us relocate from our out-of-state home.  They knew all the best areas for schools, shopping, traffic, etc.  Once we found our home, they guided us through the process very smoothly.  Highly recommend!

Mike and Jen were instrumental in the sale of my condo.  I appreciated their patience, thoroughness and responsiveness.  Their expertise and skills helped me to close in the price range I hoped for.  Mike and Jen are detail oriented and ensured my home's best features were highlighted in the posting.  There were many times when I had questions during the process and they were always willing to set up a call to go through it all.  They offered detailed and insightful knowledge.  I'm very happy with their services and highly recommend them.

I could not be happier with my experience working with Mike and Jen.  They were true professionals.  They are not only easy to work with and responsive, but their knowledge and expertise saved us thousands of dollars.  They walked us through every step of the process from negotiation with the sellers and the home inspection to closing.

Working with Mike and and Jen allowed us to find our perfect home in just one week of looking.  We closed with two months with no issues on our first offer price we wanted.  You can't ask for more!

Bought a SFH in Herndon - 2/28/2015

 

My husband and I were first time home buyers.  We were in absolutely no rush to purchase our first home.  We wanted to find the perfect place for our family of four.  Mike and Jen were so patient and always available for showing us houses or answering those first time home buyer questions.  They were extremely knowledgeable in many different areas.  They gave honest opinions about houses and their conditions.  We have almost been in our house for a full year and we still receive updates from Mike and Jen about the current market and they even include recipes for their clients!  With tax time right around the corner, they sent us a form in the mail to help us fill out our taxes.  Also, the Home and Garden Show was in the area a few weeks ago and they sent us free tickets to attend.  They are very caring Realtors and really respect their clients concerns and expectations.

P. Rod, buyer to SFH in Stafford -  10/3/2014

 

At an ex-co-worker’s urging, my husband and I first contacted Mike and Jennifer in June 2013 when we decided that time and three children had rendered our once-spacious townhome uncomfortably cramped. We desperately wanted to upgrade to a single family home with additional room and, preferably, a backyard. Though we temporarily abandoned new home aspirations when financing options became unrealistic, we remembered our brief experience with Mike and Jennifer as overwhelmingly positive. Then on Saturday, January 4, after we’d discovered some previously unexplored options that would afford us more flexibility, we stumbled across our would-be dream home on Zillow – and re-contacted Mike and Jennifer without hesitation. They both deftly reassumed their roles as our agents, helped us reactivate our prior loan approval, and submitted a competitive bid on our behalf for that dream property – all by Sunday night. Throughout our little-more-than one-month journey from single family home seekers to new dream home owners, Mike and Jennifer became our ever-present liaison, advisor, and tireless advocates, sharing and assuaging our anxiety while we anticipated bid acceptance, guiding us through the always harrowing/ lengthy loan approval process, assertively pressing forward with necessary inspections, identifying purchase maximizing opportunities, faultlessly reading the market, sincerely and proactively promoting our interests, and ultimately – making us feel – despite their busy schedules – that we were their top priority, their only clients. Their knowledge of the Northern Virginia community’s character, real estate assets, and property/process subject matter experts delved far beyond the superficial – their experience and professionalism shone at every turn when, for each of our needs, they unveiled a cadre of amazing industry connections – a fantastic general contractor, a skilled home appraiser, and an affordable radon remediation company they trusted with their own personal residences.  Mike and Jennifer took on all aspects of the purchasing legwork, actively anticipating/responding to our needs during both business and non-business hours. Throughout the buying process, they combined professionalism/courtesy with down-to-earth amiability, doting on our toddler daughter and conducting impromptu meetings at our former residence while good-naturely fending off our (sometimes raucous) two boys. And after facilitating for us a remarkably bump-free new home purchase, they seamlessly switched hats from selling to listing agent, managing the sale of our existing property with just as much skill and alacrity. We recommend Mike and Jennifer highly, without reservation, to new and seasoned buyers alike. Though it would be many years in the future – we’re beyond ecstatic with our new home - we look forward to working with Mike and Jennifer when we’re again ready to take the home-purchasing plunge.

Mike and Jennifer were such incredible agents when we purchased our home, we used them again without question when we had to sell that house 3 years later.  Their knowledge of the area cannot be matched. They were pleasant to ride around with and showed us as many properties as we wanted to see. They quickly figured out what we were looking for in a neighborhood/home and found us the perfect home on a beautiful cul-de-sac in a family-oriented neighborhood! As selling agents, Mike and Jennifer were extremely responsive and we felt the same personal attention and care as when he helped us buy our house. They took incredible pictures of our home and put them on a really cool floor plan that they drew and had designed by a professional company. The technology was impressive! We had to move out of state before the house closed and having Mike and Jennifer there was like having a family member still there to finish it all up. They responded to the inspector and appraiser's requirements immediately and had things fixed at the house quickly, usually within the same day! We could not have been more pleased with Mike and Jennifer and only wish that they could have followed us to our next duty station to help us buy our next house!

I had rented my home in Falls Church for a year and now needed to sell it.  Mike and Jennifer did many walkthroughs, made suggestions and provided other individuals who could do the necessary clean ups without bankrupting me! Each time I contacted them both with concerns/questions, they were very calm and always provided the answers, all within a short time. They were always available - no matter what time it was - day or night. Also, they kept my daughter advised of our progress as she was doing most of the handling of the paperwork. We just relaxed knowing we had the best realtors in the US! We are most appreciative and will recommend Mike and Jennifer to any relatives/friends/neighbors who are selling/buying a house!

Mike and Jennifer were outstanding realtors for us when we bought our home in 2009.  We also used them when we sold our house the following year due to a job change to Texas.  When purchasing the house in NoVA, they were always available and showed us a variety of homes.  When we moved, they showed us some things we needed to do to the house to make is more marketable.  It worked!  The first people that looked at the house made a super offer which we took.  I give them the highest recommendation possible!

I have purchased two different homes in two different locations with their assistance.  They have always been professional, responsive, and helpful.  I've enjoyed working with them and confidently recommend them.

We were first time buyers and when we initially met Mike & Jennifer, we were very surprised at how nice and genuine they were.  That first impression was backed up time and time again by how they interacted with my wife and I over the next five months it took us to find a home.  We always felt they were looking out for our best interests.  Mike and Jennifer were very knowledgeable in all aspects of the buying process and kept us informed of any new developments the entire time.  We hit a snag the day before closing where the builders termite inspection expired the day prior.  They made some calls and got our inspection done that same day and because of this, we were able to close on schedule.  I am an IT Manager so I am comfortable with technology, but I was impressed to see how tech savvy this team was in using email, scanning, and smart phones to help facilitate the buying process.  I will definitely recommend family and friends to them, as I know for sure that they will always have their best interests in mind.

In 2010, I decided to join the scary journey of buying my first home.  During my research for a good real estate agent, one of my friends gave me the point of contact for Mike & Jennifer.  Their knowledge of the area facilitated the search and accommodations I needed.  During the offer and the entire process, they were my agents and thruster as I was out of the country.  We successfully purchased the house!  If you are looking for responsible, reliable, intelligent, and friendly agents, then Mike & Jennifer are your agents.

Thanks for your help!  We have fun with our sale proceeds because of you both.
