|“This was my first experience with selling a home so I wasn't sure how to find the best realtor for me. Out-of-state realtor friends advised that having the CRS and e-PRO certifications were key. So, I googled "best realtors in Arlington, VA 22204," and after applying these 2 search filters, found that the initial listing of 168 realtors rapidly dwindled down to a more workable 16. Elizabeth was one of my 3 choices to interview because she lived and worked in Arlington (and she has so many certifications listed on her business card she almost needs 2 lines to list them all)! Elizabeth impressed me from the beginning. She was the first realtor to return my initial call; the first one to meet with me; and, by far, the most prepared for our initial meeting. But perhaps what impressed me the most was her ability to deal with the many challenges we faced from showings to open houses to reviewing the contract offer to the inspection and all the way to closing. She has an amazing ability to deal very firmly and calmly with contractors, warranty companies and other realtors, while reassuring her emotionally-drained client that everything will work out. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone who is looking for an excellent realtor - especially for anyone who is selling for the first time.”|
|Kevin L., Vienna, VA|
|“Due to her experience in dealing with customers and her knowledge of the Northern Virginia area, Elizabeth was able help us quickly determine what kind of house and neighborhood best suited our family and in area that met our personal, professional, and financial needs. This was important to us since we had a short window to find and buy our house. She devoted long hours and adapted her schedule to meet our needs. Additionally, due to her contacts throughout the real estate field, Elizabeth arranged every facet of our home purchase. Without her expertise and personal commitment, we would not have our home.”|
|Annette L., Vienna, Virginia|
|We cannot say enough about how unbelievably helpful Elizabeth was in helping us purchase our home. She really knows Northern Virginia, and has a huge amount of experience and insight into the local real estate market. She worked tirelessly, efficiently, and with dedication in helping us find the perfect home for our family in terms of size, location, schools and price. She was on top of things at all times, from the making of the offer, to negotiating of the contract, to being present and knowledgeable during the home inspection, and to helping us locate a qualified lender and a home warranty company. She is also very warm and personable – exactly the kind of person that you would want helping you make a decision as big as purchasing a home. We would highly, highly recommend her.|
|Rich M., Arlington, Virginia|
|Elizabeth is a detail-oriented, immediately responsive real estate agent whose native-born knowledge of Arlington, VA is unparalleled. From the moment we started working with her (from across the country) we knew that we had a winner. We are extremely pleased with the result and would definitely choose her again!|
|Betsy D., Arlington, Virginia|
|Starting in the summer of 2007 and ending with the sale on April 1, 2008, you provided us with essential help in planning, renovating for and conducting the sale of our Fairlington townhouse. You gave us excellent advice on the timing of the sale, the renovations required, the pricing and marketing, and the sale itself. You worked flawlessly with the company that managed this property for us, organized reliable workers to execute renovations, assessed the value of the townhouse, scheduled an open house, and answered our many questions along the way. No detail was too large or small to escape your attention. It was thanks to your efforts that our townhouse sold quickly.|
|Dean R., Arlington, VA and Falls Church, VA|
|“My wife and I used Elizabeth on 2 different occasions. She got us the best value for the house we sold as well as the house we bought. As a lifelong Northern Virginia native, her depth and breadth of knowledge are unparalleled and would strongly recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell.”|
|Maureen A., Arlington, Virginia|
|Elizabeth is a very hard-working professional who garnered top dollar for our townhouse and wrote a winning contract on the first house we bid on. She definitely set herself apart from the three other agents we interviewed and we are thrilled with the results of her efforts.|
|Rick A., Arlington, VA|
|“We cannot even begin to say how delighted we are with Elizabeth's efforts. After interviewing several agents, Elizabeth immediately stood out. She listened carefully to our needs and was able to secure us excellent deals on both the buying and selling of our houses, while working within our budget. Her comprehensive marketing made sure our sale was not missed. The other houses on the market at the time were not getting the traffic and bids that ours received. We would absolutely work with Elizabeth again and highly recommend her to anyone who is selling or buying a home. Our home is our largest investment so we had high expectations for our realtor... Elizabeth exceeded those expectations.”|
|Brenda K., Fairfax, VA|

Your professionalism and dedication has been a rock for me. . . .I feel very lucky to have you on my side. . .I really do think you go above and beyond the call of duty.”|
