WHO IS RESHAWNA LEAVEN?
ReShawna Leaven is a real estate advisor with Keller Williams Realty Kingstowne, a local real estate brokerage in Kingstowne (a sought after area in Alexandria). A residential real estate industry expert in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia (DC). Two decades of residing the area, she is aware of upcoming changes within the area that will indirectly or directly impact her clients.
With over numerous transactions under her belt, she has learned that education is just as important as the sale itself. She is a real estate educator and committed to better serve her client base and people who may want to become new agents.
Her motto is "Without the proper guidance and education a transaction can cost someone thousands of dollars in heartache and legal fees. An agent not educating their clients on the process and clear expectations is like real estate malpractice.” It's her pledge, duty and responsibility to abide by the standards of the National Association of Realtors Code of Ethics.
She has a team of local professionals and continues to analyze area market trends, recent home sales, rental activity, tour resale and new construction homes, collaborate with lending professionals to learn the best mortgage programs available, so she can illustrate the differences and possible challenges in the current market.
Over the past decade, technology has transformed the real estate industry. ReShawna has incorporated and become a true tech-savvy agent with a mobile app, online screen sharing, electronic signatures, digital contracts and other tools for a smooth client experience. Communication is key and she uses technology to update her clients by email, phone or text message.
While serving a wide variety of clients to include buyers, sellers, investors, corporations and lending institutions, her greatest enthusiasm is for first time home buyers. She states that “It’s the beginning of a new life and building wealth for Americans. My mission is to help end the gap between renting and homeownership.” A detailed consultation for buyers with a budget analysis, market trends and real estate future outlook of homeownership assists with making solid decisions for their budget and prevent future hardship. Yearly she publishes an online magazine that showcases programs for first time home buyers to investors.
In her free time, she runs several Meetup groups as the organizer in the DC area to collaborate and fellowship with local residents. She considers herself a “true foodie” also enjoying hidden gems and supporting local businesses.

Testimonials for ReShawna Leaven
Past Client - Karen Bustoz of Woodbridge, VA06/01/2019
- In June of 2016, we hired ReShawna Leaven to sell our house in Woodbridge, VA. We were probably one of her most difficult clients. We were going to hold out for the right buyers and we made that clear from the beginning. ReShawna sent over a professional photographer/videographer and posted our house for sale on various websites. ReShawna and her staging partner Sharon staged my house. It never looked so good! She did numerous open houses for us at our convenience. We were only able to show the house with an hour and a half notice as we had a pet to get out of the house. She understood. She handled all aspects of negotiations professionally while guiding us through the process. As a military family, if my husband is ever stationed in the area again, we will absolutely use ReShawna Leaven to help us with our housing needs! She is second to none! If you are looking to sell your home in the Washington Metro Area (VA, MD or DC area- Call ReShawna first!!

ReShawna is THE best realtor out there. My wife and I went through 3 realtors and 2 years of a home search before we met ReShawna and she found us our perfect first home! She is so knowledgeable with all mortgage loans, even the first time home buyer programs. We were approved through NACA and USDA, ReShawna was experienced in both!

ReShawna worked with me for months on finding the right home. She was always responsive and answered any questions that I had or was unsure of. She had a lot of information about the DMV real estate market is very knowledgeable of different programs, especially the NACA program. I first learned of ReShawna from her videos on YouTube. She went above and beyond to offer as much information as I needed, especially with me being a first time homebuyer. She still provides me with advice even after the sale. I highly recommend ReShawna as a real estate agent and would refer her to all my friends and family.

"I can't say enough great things about ReShawna Leaven and the service she provided to us while we searched for for our new home. She is knowledgeable about the real estate business, patient, flexible, responsive and knows the area quite well. With her expert guidance we were able to find our new home, one that we will enjoy for many years to come, in an area we really like and for a reasonable price. This is not our first home purchase as we both have bought and sold homes in the past. However, this was the best experience we have had with a realtor. Not only is she an absolutely great person, she is a true professional. We highly recommend ReShawna to anyone who is looking for a home in NOVA or Maryland." by Anna L. on Yelp.com
