Not just an agent.
Your real estate advisor. For life.

There are just so many real estate agents in Northern Virginia. In fact, there are 13,500 of them—and counting! So, how do you make sure you are working with the right real estate agent? How do you protect the investment in housing you will make over a lifetime of decisions? And how do you get the most from your property when you finally are ready for a change? I would suggest asking an entirely different question: Why hire a real estate agent when you can instead partner with a real estate advisor? To learn more about the differences between an agent and an advisor, I invite you to watch this video.   Then, give me a call. And I’ll buy you a cup of coffee. You won’t regret it.

What’s the Buzz

“Danielle is the best! You won’t find a better agent – and you’ll realize that in minutes when you meet her for the first time. She knows everything there is to know, works with the best people to ensure a smooth process the whole way through closing (and then afterwards with her recommendations for  plumbers, electricians, etc., if you need them), answers every text and email right away no matter what time it is, and most importantly is super, super friendly and down to earth and tells funny stories of her own family! You’ll know all this after your first meeting with her! I recommend her 100%”

“My wife and I felt really blessed to be able to work with such a sharp and responsive Real Estate Professional like Danielle. She assisted my wife’s mother with the purchase of her home and then maintained a good relationship after the purchase. Through association, we were able to meet her and  then through a movie event Danielle held for her clients, we got to get to know her and her husband and it turned into my wife and I inviting her over a few weeks later to talk about what we were interested in looking to purchase and she was able to give some good recommendations on where to look at our price point. When we were able to find a great deal near where we currently were renting, Danielle was quick to help and was fantastic at being available to answer questions and then walk through the buying process, from creating a reasonable offer to closing. Would recommend her to anyone in the area without hesitation.”
“I can’t recommend Danielle enough! She’s knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and so friendly and fun to be around (which matters when you’re spending a lot of time together house hunting!). She helped us find and close on our dream home in a very competitive market when we thought it would be  impossible, as well as listing our townhouse, getting multiple offers, and going under contract in four days. She is responsive and walked us through every step of the way! Give her a call- you won’t regret it!”
“Working with Danielle was a breeze. She was able to answer all of our questions and help us navigate the purchase of our dream home very quickly with minimal issues. She always made us feel at ease and she did a great job of helping us negotiate with the seller. We couldn’t recommend Danielle  more highly. She was truly a pleasure to work with.”
“It took us 2+ years to find a home and during this time we have seen 40+ houses and put contracts on 7 houses to finally get through to the home ownership stage. Danielle has been so patient and accommodating all this time and always available for showings at times convenient to us with short  notice times. She provides honest opinions about properties. This is my third time buying a property and we have to say that this has been the best experience.”
“Danielle was recommended to us by a close friend, and we were very happy with our experience! From the get go, she took the time to walk us through the home buying process, so that we understood each step and so that she knew exactly what we were looking for in a house. She took us on a preliminary  day of house hunting, so that we could all get a feel for what we liked and what we were looking for later. She suggested a lender to us as well, who she worked really well with and that made the process even more smooth for us! As we got closer to buying our home, she was always available to talk, text, or email about any questions or concerns we might have. She helped us put together a solid offer and then got us through a sticky situation with the seller the day before closing, so that we were able to close on time! She also got us a very sweet gift for when we settled, which was totally unnecessary as we really owe HER a debt of gratitude. We are so happy to have just purchased our first home with Danielle’s help and we highly recommend her for any of your home buying or selling needs! She is top notch and so wonderful to work with!”
“In the shortest term possible, FANTASTIC!!  Danielle is terrific to work with.  Honestly, you should stop reading now and contact her immediately.  You will not be disappointed.  We have had the opportunity to work with Danielle on two separate occasions.  First, was selling our home and then three  years later, Danielle helped us to purchase a new home.  As you can imagine, both experiences were impeccable to say the least.  Danielle is the kind of person you want to recommend others to because it’s truly hard to find someone who is this good at their job!!  So, there you have it Danielle is highly motivated, responsive, knowledgeable of market trends and analysis, and most importantly represents her clients to the maximum extent possible!! She is a consummate professional. She is extremely thorough and detail oriented. Something very necessary when trying to find a great home. Danielle went above and beyond in helping us find the perfect home as we are currently living overseas. I will continue to recommend her services to everyone we know.”
“Danielle was amazing – so personable, available, and above all else, professional. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and she helped make a stressful commitment that much easier. She worked with us from the very beginning – even met with us over coffee just to discuss the housing market,  when we should start looking, and how the whole process worked. Danielle went above and beyond, and we will definitely be recommending her to friends.”


Helping a Couple Find Accessible Housing in Fairfax

Fairfax County is a challenge for couples who want to age in place. Most residential properties there were simply not built to accommodate the challenges that come with growing older.

When Gary and Sharon bought their first home after a long military career, they were delighted to move into their “forever” home. But 25 years and two knee operations later, Sharon was forced to acknowledge that the Springfield home no longer suited. Danielle sold their home in a weekend, helped Gary sort through the multiple offers they received to identify the best option for the couple, and then worked with the duo to find the perfect solution for their next stage in their journey.
