Chip was very diligent with his follow through and negotiation skills. Although we did not have the highest offer, he pr esented our offer to the listing agent and sellers as the best option. Also, his local knowledge and research made us comfortable in the areas we looked at.
Although it was a very tough market, I am relieved we were able to find something with the help of Chip, it made the process so much better to have someone who championed for us.
Chip was very responsive and made sure we not only talked on text/email, but would reach out via zoom or phone call to touch base. If for some reason he was not available, he always communicated who would his back up be and it would be as if he never left. His communication skills were definitely a very important aspect in this whole process. ... Read more
I've worked with Branden several times and he always goes above and beyond to sell the property.
Branden expe rtly guided us through the necessary renovations.
Branden's knowledge of real estate and home renovations were critical to the sale. His strategy for the listing price was brilliant. The house sold in about a week, at more than $50,000 over asking price.
All staff with whom I had interaction was kind and professional. It was a pleasure working with Branden and I plan on referring him to my friends. ... Read more

With Karen, she’s already the best, so how can you improve that? She wrote the book and is the top agent in the region. We’ve used Karen as both buyer and seller now on multiple transactions in the NOVA area. She is proactive, doesn’t waste our time to show properties she knows we wouldn’t like. Her pricing ideas are always at the market and once bids are accepted, her follow through on inspections and documentation is peerless. Nothing falls through the cracks! She’s simply the best. ...

Paul Chung was very attentive and took the time to understand our wants and needs during our home search. Afte r helping us find the right home, he was able to help us with a strategy to help us get our offer accepted the first time! We didn't need to put an offer in on multiple homes which is unheard of right now! Had it not been for him, I don't think we would have had the right strategy necessary to have our offer accepted so easily. He was always able to take our call and answer any questions no matter the time of day or night which was really helpful, especially in this fast paced market we have during COVID. ... Read more
I felt like I could call on Pam at any time with any question (which I did a lot of) and I never felt like I w as bothering her. She was great at dealing with situations as they arouse and made sure my needs were being met.

My husband and I recently bought our very first house in Fairfax. As first time home buyer, we were anxious a bout the home buying process. After we met Paul, all of our concerns were gone. It was such a pleasure working with Paul. He carefully listened to our needs and what we were looking for. He was always available whenever we needed his help and he was very responsive! We fully trusted him with our home purchase process and he has made this process stress-free and even enjoyable for us. With his great knowledge in local markets and his strong negotiation skills, we were able to buy a house that we loved in this crazy hot market. We felt taken great care of by him throughout the whole process. He is wonderful! We highly recommend him to other potential home buyers and sellers. ... Read more
We first encountered Karen Close fifteen years ago at the opposite end of a real estate deal -- she was the sa les agent on the Arlington family home we were purchasing. We were so impressed with her skill as an agent and market knowledge that we hired her several years later to sell our former house (which we had been unable to unload when the housing bubble burst in 2008). Flash forward a decade and we turned to Karen again when we were ready to sell the family home. She gave us invaluable advice as to how to prep the home for sale and how to price it. She sold the house in four days, at a price higher than our asking price. Karen is a veteran agent and consummate professional, not to mention an incredibly decent and honest person. We could not recommend her more highly. ... Read more

Branden Beasley was so patient and helpful during our first home buying experience. We were unable to travel t o house hunt in person and he viewed every property we requested. He knew all the neighborhoods and property values and helped us find a house that met all our needs.

Highly recommend working with Branden! ... Read more
Karen was an amazing person to have by our side throughout the transaction. Her general knowledge of real est ate, her specific knowledge of northern VA, and her even more specific knowledge of Old Town was remarkable. She never let us settle for anything less than the best, even when we were fatigued by the process and prepared to (wrongly) do so. She always steered us in the right direction and had clear reasons for any decisions. We would look forward to working with Karen on any real estate transactions we may undertake in the future. ...

We are experienced real estate buyers and sellers. This closing was by far the most difficult that we have exp erienced. The problem was not on our side but on the seller side. Karen made the very difficult situation better. She was supported extremely well by the broker ,Todd Hetherington ,who also came in at a crucial time to ensure that the deal would close. Without both of their efforts we could’ve lost over a hundred thousand dollars. We can’t thank them enough. ... Read more
Karen is the type of agent who works with you, not at you. She really tries to understand your needs and the overall structure of your transaction, not just the details (which she also understands well). She treats you like a close friend and genuinely cares about the result you get. She has a way of making you feel good about the choices you are making, even if they are difficult. At the same time, she provides realistic feedback and options, so you are making informed and intelligent choices based on reality.
With her combination of local knowledge and experience along with the connections she has, Karen is an ideal broker for the Northern Virginia area. She's a one-of-a-kind and we were fortunate to work with her a couple of times over a decade. ... Read more
What I really appreciated about Paul was that not only was he very knowledgeable and personable, he was never pushy and didn't not come across slimy and only into it for the money. He also never bad mouth any other realtor. He was very professional, friendly and had an immense amount of integrity.
since we sold during COVID, things had to run differently. For me, not having an open house was a blessing. He was fantastic through all aspects of the listing and sale. I could not be happier

It is no wonder she is one of the top real estate leaders (very top in our mind) in Northern VA. We look forward to working with her again in the near future. ... Read more
There is a whole lot that goes into selling a house after owning it for 30 years. Karen Close just made everyt hing happen that needed to happen. And, throughout the process she remained enthusiastic, friendly and highly efficient.
Added to the complexities was the pandemic. Karen's constant engagement and creative approaches kept a really fabulous buyer committed until the close.
I'm not sure who the 2020 Realtor of the Year will be, but whoever it is, they just can't be any better than Karen Close and her team! ... Read more
We had worked with Karen in the past and knew her to be pretty savvy and to know our neighborhood.
Karen hand led our entire sale while we were at our home in Florida and went the extra mile to take care of things that we couldn't from Florida. She provided excellent advice on what we needed to spend to prepare the house for sale and just as important, what we didn't need to spend. We ended up netting more than we expected - especially during the pandemic. iI's hard to imagine that there's an agent more capable or hard working. ... Read more
Brandon Beasley had just sold the condo right next door to us. I had seen the pictures and property write up of my neighbor's condo and was very impressed by his property description and how professional the pictures looked, covering not only the inside of condo, but also all the amenities of the property. He was always available to talk when we had questions. Also, when a few problems developed with the closing, he got right on top of the situation and all problems were resolved quickly. Finally, our condo sold very quickly because Branden took the extra step of doing an open house with conference video. The only interested buyers were from clients watching the open house video. The condo would have probably taken quite a longer time to sell without his expert sales approach. We are so proud to have met such a dedicated and caring realtor and know he is going to be recognized as one of the very best realtors ! ... Read more

We absolutely could not have found and bought our dream home without Karen! She is incredibly knowledgeable ab out the competitive Arlington market and helped guide us through the home search and offer process. Along the way Karen prepared us with all of her experience and wisdom to make a quick and educated decision given the short offer window sellers are giving in this competitive market. Her local knowledge and network is unmatched in the Arlington single family home market - it seemed like every listing agent knew her by name and had worked with her before! We hope every other buyer chooses to have the same amazing experience we had with Karen. ... Read more
Chip took the time to find the house for me. By time - I mean - he did a lot of research. I had been in the same house most of my life and it was overwhelming to think of buying a new home. He found the home that would make the transition seem not so unbearable.
I think Chip's patience resonates with me the most when I think about this entire experience. Constantly, looking out for my best interest and always available. He did a fantastic job in answering my myriad questions. I can drive around this neighborhood and see all of the signs for other real estate companies that say "Mantua expert". I would rather work with a realtor who was an expert in focusing on my needs and then finding the right neighborhood/home and that is exactly what Chip accomplished. ... Read more
We were very satisfied with the work Cathy did in helping to sell our house. This was a team effort between al l of us, right from the start.
Early in the process we meet to determine what was needed to make the best impression on the buyers. She brought in a staging/design consultant for additional recommendations which really helped us prioritize the projects.
Once we determined what changes we would make, Cathy checked in regularly on the progress and as new projects were to start she was helpful in providing companies who could take them on or some for us. In the end the projects we invested in helped sell our house and offer a buyer something they could were excited about to live in.
When it came to setting the price for the house and buyer negotiations Cathy was on our side from the start through closing. Actually, we were listed at the high end of comparable homes in the area and even settled on a contract over listing price within four hours of going on the market.
With the high level of satisfaction my wife and I would have no reservations in recommending Cathy to friends, family, and neighbors.

Karen Close is the ultimate professional real estate broker. Her leadership in this particularly complicated, problem-strewn home marketing and sale process was absolutely critical to its success.

Chip is excellent at his job! He is very good at directing every step of the process. This was both important and very valuable to me as I have never purchased or sold a home before. Chip did an incredible amount of work and due diligence in researching the best scenario for selling my older home. He is also very good at being both cognizant and patient of the sellers needs. There is a tremendous amount of emotion that comes with selling a home that has been in your family for years. Chip was very patient with me throughout the process. Also, many of the conversations we shared along the way needed to be rehashed several times. Chip is very good at shepherding you through this process and listening and understanding your needs. Truthfully, he found a home for me that I never would have pictured myself in. The end result is that I think it will be ultimately the perfect home. I would highly recommend Chip Smith to anyone who was buying or selling a home.

Buying a house with Nicholas was Incredibly smooth. Many say, and often articles in the news confirm, that buy ing a house can be one of the most stressful experiences in life. This was decidedly not. Nicholas was available at any time, his vision for the process developed exactly as he said, and he truly became invested in finding us what we needed (and we had a long wish list). He cautioned on locations and properties that were not appropriate for us but never forced his views or tried to make up our mind for us. He made his opinion clear on properties we thought were good but, in the end, were clearly not. He educated us on what to look at and red flags that often exist in homes you view. His lender, title company, and home inspector recommendations were excellent choices. His suggestion on offer price was spot on and saved us thousands of dollars. We closed within 30 days of a ratified contract. Perfect! ... Read more
