Because Karen was referred by a close friend of mine I already had confidence in her. Upon meeting her it was "instant k arma" for me. She was so beyond my expectations it was unbelievable! I have my broker/friend for all future real estate decisions because of Karen. Unbelievable especially under my very personal circumstances. OMG! I can't say enough, Karen is top notch!!! I could write a book on how well Karen handled everything!

Bob Charnley, Alexandria

Chip is the consummate professional -- knowledgeable, personable and calm which is very much what I needed. Chip review ed the competition in my neighborhood and offered sound advice and strategy on when to put my home on the market. His suggestions resulted in an offer on day 2. He was also extremely helpful and went above and beyond in helping to stage my home. He even took some of my belongings to his home to store during the sales process. Excellent customer service. He's the best. I will recommend to anyone I know that's looking to purchase or sell their home.

This was a remote transaction purchase with my son. That being the case there were several different issues th at I was not familiar with. Karen was very prompt in explaining the situations and was very informed, couteous and professional in handling the transaction. I highly reccomend Karen!

Martin Hoenisch, Meridian Idaho
I called a few other brokers to see how they would price the house. Jimmy came with the local knowledge and if we had not gone with him we would have left tens of thousands on the table. Thank goodness that didn't happen! Jimmy is an excellent and fast communicator. Never had to wait long to hear back. He is a super friendly guy, very personable. We are glad we used him. We recommend Jimmy D'arcangelo for your real-estate needs. He has the local knowledge you need, he is a great communicator and he gets the job done. Step by step along the way, you won't be sorry. Thank you so much Jimmy! Patricia and Jeff

Jeff and Patricia
Karen is amazing! She took the time to understand our needs and was extremely patient in helping us find the r ight home. Karen earned our trust by frequently telling us to pass on homes - she wanted us to find a home we loved and encouraged us to be patient and keep looking even though that would mean much more work for her. We greatly valued her insight, and knew the home we ended up buying was a winner when it earned her seal of approval!

Brian, Arlington
Chip has an amazing ability to sell and keep our interests at heart. He handled the negotiation with finesse a nd expertise, and was able to remove the contingency from the preferred offeror as we had 2 offers at the table to consider. From start to finish Chip laid out clear expectations along to way, always kept us abreast of the latest news and any changes we needed to know about and informed us of any decisions we needed to make in a timely manner. We highly recommend and have already advertised our friends to use Chip on our neighborhood FB page
Review by
Mary Ann and Ben Cox, Chantilly VA
I could not ask for a better agent than Chip Smith. He was extremely attentive to my needs, including a deep k nowledge of the area where I was interested in buying. Since I am relocating from Arizona to Virginia, I had to rely on Chip to handle numerous aspects of the buying process that I was unable to do. For example, he was there for the inspection. He was there for the walk-through and brought along a handyman to check out projects I want to undertake. And just because the sale is final, Chip hasn't walked away. For instance, a cabinet door is missing from a lazy Susan corner cabinet. He's tracking down carpenters in the area to determine where I can get a replacement. Chip goes above and beyond what is expected of an agent. I would highly recommend him to others.

Karen is excellent for clients buying and selling homes. She's very knowledgeable, available, friendly and es pecially astute at assessing homes for her clients No formal inspection of this current purchase but Karen is very observant which helped to point out possible difficulties The best! Candee was very helpful

Paul went above and beyond with his service for the entire sales process. He even helped bring in/schedule al l of his own contractors for the inspection items. I highly recommend Paul for all of your real estate needs!

To anyone looking to buy a new house, Chip Smith is your man. His hard work, extensive research, and attention to detail made the whole process very enjoyable. From setting up multiple private viewings and open houses, to e-mail alerts of new houses coming on the market, we were able to make an informed choice based on a wide variety of potential homes. As a first time homebuyer this process can seem very daunting. And more than a little bit scary. The sheer amount of research Chip does allowed him to be able to answer all of our questions and put our minds at ease. He talked us through every step of the process right down to the final closing, so we always knew what to expect. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of buying our new home and would highly recommend Chip to anyone.

Branden was an outstanding asset to our family from start to finish. He's even continued to support our transi tion to the area from out of town, well after closing, by helping to secure contractors for work to our home before we move in. We had a high bar based on previous real estate agents and Branden exceeded them. He is an expert in the area, and was invaluable throughout the search process. We would gladly use him again.

Chip has helped me with the sale of my parent's house and my home. Both were very personal and emotional sales . Chip was kind, courteous and went out of his way to make the process smooth and painless. Particularly with my parent's house, Chip found a buyer that respected the history of the house and wanted to perserve and improve upon its beauty and past.

Pam is a great person and a great agent! I first met Pam back in 2004, when we first bought this unit (851 N. Glebe Road #1216), Since then, I have been using her regularly! To date, I have worked with Pam 14 times (purchases and/or sales). She is the best in the business. I highly recommend her.

Karen Close was a dream realtor to work with. During this crazy time, buying homes is not enjoyable nor easy, but she kept us sane and really helped us through the process each time we fell in love with a house. Her knowledge and experience are unparalleled and we felt lucky to have her time and attention whenever we requested! 100% would recommend and work with Karen and her team again.

Branden is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He goes over and beyond to ensure everything goes smoothly and to my liking. I would , without hesitation, recommend him to anyone. Thanks Branden for another great experience!!
Review by
Denise Chavous Edwards
Chip was very diligent with his follow through and negotiation skills. Although we did not have the highest of fer, he presented 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.

Review by
Dustin Day, Fairfax, VA
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.

Kim Beasley, Annapolis
Pam is personable and goes the extra mile. She never made me feel like my circumstance was one that could not be rectified. Also, she was on top of communication and correspondence with the sellers and represented all of my needs. She was also a very good diplomatic reality check for me when needed. Pam is wonderful and I would recommend her to all!

Karen is the most professional, knowledgeable and caring realtor I've ever worked with. I trust her implicitl y and value her experience. I have worked with her on 6 sale transactions and wouldn't consider anyone else. I recommend Karen Close to anyone wanting a realtor that truly works for you and has the experience to ensure a successful purchase or sale.

Outstanding agent in all regards. She was always available, knew the market, and provided excellent service.
Review by
Dr. Peter E. Petrucci
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.

AiChoo & Peter Healey Austin Tx
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.
Review by
Fangyu, Centreville, VA
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. It was my first home buying experience and I would recommend Pam to anyone needing a home. She's excellent and keeps her knowledge up to date regarding market conditions and sales tactics.

Omar, Maryland
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.
Review by
Ji Stone & Fairfax
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.

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. He was always available even though we were on opposite ends of the country and was there for us for every step of the process that we couldn’t be there for. Highly recommend working with Branden!
Review by
Danika Polanco, Alexandria
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.
Review by
Curtis Hart, Alexandria, VA
Because of my past experience with Karen Close, I never considered any other agent/broker! Karen was the list ing agent when I purchased the house twenty years ago. I knew then that she was an exceptional person and agent. We maintained contact throughout the years and I never considered anyone else when it came time for me to sell.

Chip Smith made the process of being a first time home-buyer easy and stress free. From driving us around to v arious areas to the final closing he was kind, courteous and knowledgeable of every step. Chip went above and beyond to be accessible and answer any questions we had along the way.
Review by
James Roberts, Ashburn
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.

Review by
Brian and Nancy Clark, Reston, VA
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.

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 I have engaged with several realtors regarding the sale of my home on my Key Drive and in my view they displayed all the negative traits of realtors. Paul has all of the positive traits.

My husband and I feel very fortunate that we met Karen several years ago. We are repeat clients as she has he lped and supported us on a number of purchases and sales. She has always been available as we discuss future plans for our real estate needs and that of other family members. She's so gracious and generous with her time and advice. 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.

Steve and Deborah Romano
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!
Review by
Craig Fuller, Easton, Maryland
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.

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 !

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.

Mark & Kristin Brindisi
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.

margaret Miller, Fairfax, VA.
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. Sue & Jeff Kennedy

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. Karen stepped up to every road block (there were many) and figured the way forward for us, even after the sale went through. I can't thank her enough! I would recommend Karen Close and her team to anyone looking for an agent to help sell a home. Karen Close was truly a pleasure to work with. Many thanks!

elliott ginsburg, arlington, va
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. This sale was a little bit unique. Chip sold to a builder. He found the right builder. Again, he did a great job in selling my property and finding me a new home.

Chip came highly recommended from friends who worked with him and I knew him personally through work so I felt very comfortable that working with Chip was the right decision. Chip handled everything professionally and efficiently with the patience of a saint and most importantly, maintained a great sense of humor throughout. Having not purchased a home in the past 19 years, I really had no idea what I was doing and Chip kept me very well informed and explained things in terms I could understand and shepherded me through the entire process . I highly recommend Chip to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Branden was extremely knowledgeable about the market. He helped us identify key improvements that would help our townhouse sell. He also had many contacts in the building industry that made it easy for us to be cost effective in making our improvements. He was professional, polite and always available. The buyers broker was very complimentary about Branden's handling of the sales process. We had complete confidence that Branden would get the best price in the shortest period of time. Century 21 New Millennium has a very good reputation for sales and service It could not have been better!

I've known Chip for many years and he came highly recommended from friends who have used him. I had complete t rust that he would make recommendations based on what was best for me, whether or not that resulted in a sale. Chip was also a fantastic counselor. As somebody who had not bought a new place in 19 years, having him explain everything in terms I could understand and assist with the loan process was invaluable. Finally, Chip did the research and his specific recommendations on how to prep my place for sale and the listing price were excellent. My condo sold the first day on the market, so couldn't ask for a better outcome.

I could not imagine trusting anyone more than Anthony Coleman with something as important as the major financi al investment of purchasing a home. His lifetime of local market knowledge and years of experience coupled with how well he personally listens and to his clients is what sets him apart from the pack. I would absolutely recommend Anthony to anyone looking to purchase or sell a property in the Montgomery/Conroe area.

Branden spent time with us over the last year helping us understand each neighborhood and setting us up for su ccess for when we found our ideal home. He was excellent in helping us put together an aggressive offer that would win against other highly competitive offers. He really went above and beyond to make sure our family got the home we wanted. Outstanding service!

Paul made himself available throughout odd hours accommodating our schedules. He genuinely cared and sought ou r requirements since we have a large family. He mapped out our routes so we maintained efficiency. He gave us the confidence we needed to put in competitive offers. We appreciate all that Paul did for us to purchase our home.

Branden Beasley was amazing to work with. From start to finish, he was very knowledgable, friendly and profess ional. I will recommend him to anyone looking to sell a house in this area. As he predicted, the house sold, above asking price, in one day. If you want an energetic, hard working agent, call Branden Beasley.

Paul is fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area and every step of the process. He listened carefu lly to all of our needs and concerns and translated that into the perfect home for us. As first-time home buyers, we had many questions. Paul took the time to answer all of our (many) questions. He was very responsive and accommodating of our busy schedules. Paul made us feel comfortable throughout the search and buying processes. I highly recommend Paul.

In our opinion,Karen is simply the best agent in the country! She is very responsive, knowledgeable, professio nal and a good negotiator. We were buying during the holiday season from out of state & she handled everything for us including scheduling for a painter & electrician! We’re very happy with their work. We would wholeheartedly recommend Karen Close to anyone looking for either a listing or buying agent. We have used her in multiple transactions, Karen Close is the BEST!!!

Karen is a seasoned agent and knows how to close a deal. She has deep and expert knowledge of the market - al l segments and consistently offers insights that inform the client on how best too position their property in a sale or a buy. She also understands the process that leads to a closing, so your interests are well served. And she is tireless. She works weekends, evenings, holidays morning and night. We don’t ever need to chase for status reports when we are in the hunt to buy or sell. She is simply the best. Hopefully she will be available for you. ACH and PFH

We interviewed several agents an were impressed by Karen's positive attitude and her ability to listen to us a nd understand our needs. We had one contract fall through, but Karen was ready with a second offer at nearly the same price. She helped us remain positive about the prospect of a successful sale throughout our interactions with her. Valerie Burke , Karen's assistant, was uniformly responsive and helpful whenever Karen was unavailable. We initially planned to put our home on the market a year earlier, and when we decided to delay, Karen remained engaged and encouraging while we considered a new sales timetable.

Anthony was first class from start to finish. His local market knowledge is very valuable. He always answers c alls and emails promptly, often working nights and weekends on our behalf to make sure we had a smooth transaction. He is the best of the best and I highly recommend him to anyone I can in our area.

Karen Close is outstanding! We have moved several times and have a good perspective on the quality and perform ance of many Realtors. Karen is far and away the best we have seen. There is a real difference between a competent Realtor and what I would call a "professional real estate advisor". Karen is truly an experienced "professional real estate advisor". Her level of professionalism, focus, market knowledge and strategy were unmatched in our experience. We viewed Karen as a true partner whose interests were fully aligned with ours. We would highly recommend Karen Close to anyone, and would be pleased to provide a reference at anytime.

Nicholas Lagos is the most considerate, honest, thoughtful and thorough real estate professional that I have e ver met. He has done tens of real estate transactions for myself, family members and friends and he will do any future ones that will come up.

Working with Nick Lagos helped eliminate the worry we had about looking for our first home and school district . He sent us properties that fit our needs and even helped research other properties we found. His knowledge of school districts, features, and appreciation were helpful as we narrowed our choices down. When we made the purchase, Nick and his team were always there to answer questions and offer support. We are so happy in our new home!
