Get to know Margery Stern

Why pick me from the multitude of agents who say they are multi-million dollar producers, honest, high integrity, work hard for you?  In this market, we are all multi-million dollar producers with the average price of a home in Northern Virginia over $500,000.  Because of my attention to detail and my good reputation in the Realtor community ( I have over 10 years experience) I guarantee you will have a no hassle experience whether buying or selling.

I offer a service with fees according to the level of service you need; why should you pay 5 to 6% listing commission with housing prices as high as they are in Northern Virginia.  If you are buying a home, you have probably done a lot of research on the internet and are entitled to closing cost help if you use me as your buyer agent.  I will credit you with 1% of the sales price on a re-sale home and 1.5% on new construction.  This applies when the commission to the buyer's agent is 3%, if commision is lower than 3%, the credit is adjusted accordingly.  I show houses to you based on whether it is a "good fit" for you, not the amount of commission paid to me.

Certifications

I am an accredited buyer representative, (ABR) which means I have taken courses to make me an expert in buyer representation.  I hold the e-PRO designation which means I understand the importance of the internet and and modern communications.  I have my Virginia broker's license, which means I have a high level of experience and real estate knowledge and have passed a comprehensive state licensing exam.

On a personal note, I have been married forever, have two grown children and three marvelous grandchildren.  I am owned by 2 Abyssinian cats who do me the great favor of letting me serve them.  I have lived in Loudoun County since 1992 and in Northern Virginia most of my adult life.
