Testimonials

We can certainly share with you our mission statement about our commitment to excellence in our field joined with world class customer service, but perhaps it’s better to listen to our clients.

Here’s what they have to say…

“Selling a home can be a long and difficult process. The experience and expertise of the Tom & Cindy team gave us the guidance we needed throughout the transaction. We always knew they had our best interests as their first priority. We would definitely work with them again in the future. One of the biggest decisions when selling a hoe is setting the right price at the onset. We felt the consultation with both Tom & Cindy as well as Jim [Patrick] was the most helpful. IT took time to analyze all the comps in the area, but well worth it. In the end, we sold for our asked price!”

Antero and Linda Lacot

“We had a wonderful experience with Tom & Cindy and their entire team. Jenny led the buying of our new home in Centreville. She was extremely patient as we looked through many houses to find our dream one – AND WE DID! We are so happy with the buying and selling of our houses!”

David Posner

“Jason was direct, open, honest, tried to save us money in all aspects.”

Kevin Yamaguchi

“We could not have asked for a better real estate agent when we bought our house. A former Marine, with over 25 years of sales experience, Jim Jones get sthe job done! HE was always reachable and responsive; listened to our questions and concerns; provided advice; delivered answers; kept the process moving along and had a great sense of humor! While a relatively new member of the Tom & Cindy Long and Foster Realtors team, Jim Jones was able to rely on their professional resources and expertise at all times. Highly recommend!”

Rick Gruntz III and Julie Price
“On behalf of my wife Diane and myself, we wish to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to Tom & Cindy and Associates, our Long & Foster Realtors in Alexandria, VA. The professionalism and attention to detail we received from Tom Pietsch and Cindy Schneider throughout the entire listing, selling, and settlement process was truly outstanding and deeply appreciated. We were looking for a realtor who had a great track record selling single family homes in the Northern Virginia – Lorton area. After interviewing five realty companies, we selected Tom & Cindy and Associates. We were never disappointed in our selection as we received absolutely outstanding service, responsiveness, and personal attention from the entire team throughout the process.”

“Hi Susan, thanks as always for your follow up and attention to detail!”

Jason Kane
“It was easy for me to turn over the whole process of the sale to your team because of their professionalism, knowledge, pleasant demeanor, and sound advice. You all gave a full explanation of the process each step of the way.”

Sanelma Sutton
“As first time sellers, we can’t thank you enough for the professional support we received throughout this whole process. Ray Kelly is a blessing! Having moved to Florida not long after listing, we truly believe it could have been more stressful had we not had Ray on our team. He was extremely kind and helpful beyond our expectations, he kept in touch with frequent updates and quickly responded to our texts, emails and calls. Ray showed a genuine care and concern, and for that we are forever thankful, we will miss him!”

Gary and Jennifer Shepp
“Nichole was a pleasure to work with and very helpful. She got us on the line with a loan person within 10 minutes of being in the office.”

Kelly and Aaron Wilson
“Tom and Cindy were professional and knowledgeable on how best to price and market our home to sell. They provided constant updates on every aspect of the sale and answered every call promptly.”

Akweke and Larissa Rogers
“We could not have been more pleased with Tom & Cindy and Associates! Throughout the entire process of selling our home, the two of them made us feel we were their primary client and concern. We learned about them through friends who had been very pleased with their services in selling their home. Both Tom and Cindy met with us in our home and thoroughly explained how they worked and what they would be able to do to sell our home in Alexandria (Franconia area). They conducted a thorough seach of comparable homes in the area (3 adjoining zip codes). When we subsequently met with them at their office, it was very clear that they had an excellent understanding of the the area and the real estate trends in the local market and consequently recommended an appropriate sale price. They were also on the mark in terms of their recommendations for “staging” our home so that it would show to its best advantage. They were always available and timely in answering our telephone calls and responding to questions. Every member of their support staff with whom we had contact was courteous, considerate, and very helpful, always promptly communicating with us via phone and email. The photographer who produced the pictures for the multiple-listing website was excellent, and the site was extremely professionally built and truly showed off the house. Due to Tom and Cindy’s efforts and expertise we had two contracts on the house within the first day it was on the market. We highly recommend Tom & Cindy and Associates to anyone interested in selling their home.”

Lynn and Tom Osborne
“Cindy and her team get my highest marks. As someone with a little experience in real estate, having bought and sold 14 homes over the last 19 years, I was impressed with the responsiveness and commitment demonstrated by the team. The home they recently sold for us (closed on 3 Sep 14), was more difficult than most since it was a rental just prior to listing and we now live almost 2000 miles away from Alexandria. Cindy and her team jumped in and evaluated the property, scheduled multiple estimates, arranged for the work and coordinated access for contractors. They took control of all aspects of the prep and sale and provided a stress free process. Cindy, you and your team get our highest rating and we’ll certainly recommend you at every possible opportunity.”

Bill Uhlmeyer
“From the first conversation we had with Tom & Cindy and Associates we were very positively impressed. They guided us through changes in the economy that impacted the sale price, kept us posted on showings and showing results, etc. etc. Even when we were out of the area they made certain things kept moving and worked with us on the paperwork part of the process. Totally professional, great attitudes, wonderful experience.”

Wayne Bley
“Tom’s recommendations on what to do during the entire process as well as his advice on what to look for in terms of the home structure were excellent. He is a very easy going realtor with a ‘no pressure’ personality. The whole process went smooth and we loved being able to use the community truck!”

Alejandro Romairone and Lina Oliveros
“Great experience, Jason listened to our needs and walked with us through the whole process. He was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations and advice throughout the whole experience.”

Doug and Sharla Smith
“This is long overdue, but I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you. I first met you in 2012 and just wanted an opinion on the value of my home if my husband were to take a new position and we would relocate. You willingly and patiently answered my questions, and about a year later, the perfect opportunity for him arose — naturally, we called you. We appreciated your input and help every step of the way as we went through the selling process. Everything went even more smoothly than I would have expected. I don’t expect our path to take us back to Virginia again, but if that were to happen, we would certainly use the services of your team again. Thank you so much, and thank you for all the good you do in Kingstowne!”

Ellen A.
“We will not forget you! You did an outstanding job of selling our Kingstowne home. Compared to the other 3 sales/purchases, you were perfect. Naturally, we are now settled into Nocatee, but be assumed that if anyone asks, especially old friends from the DC area, we will strongly recommend you two!”

Chris Thompson
“Listing our home with Tom & Cindy was a great decision. We were able to trust the oversight of renovations with our realtor, and were completely satisfied with the quick turn around on our property. The most helpful advantage in our experience was the advice given on selecting the appropriate ‘fixes’ to make our house competitive with other homes in our community, and the assistance provided in selecting a selling price. We also appreciated the feedback provided by other realtors who viewed our home after it was listed.”

Sharon and Dennis O’Fallon
“Stu Burke was extremely helpful, he did a lot of the work getting the house in shape since we were not in the area.”

Nancy and Scott Tew
“Our experience from first meeting Cindy and Tom through the settlement process was all we could have hoped for. Cindy was always accesible to address our needs and concerns. Tom provided extensive, thoughtful, and reasoned analysis and he reassured us in dealing with a Friday night repair emergency. Cindy and Tom put us in contact with reliable, professional repair specialists on several occasions. The staff, Nancy, Amanda, and Susan provided valuable support in the selling process. We are completely satisfied with our Tom & Cindy experience!”

David and Martha Stewart
“Tom Pietsch of Tom & Cindy and Associates, part of Long and Foster Realty, did an outstanding job handling the sale of our home. He was very professional, hardworking, and effective. He knows his business and the local housing market. Long before we were ready to sell, we asked for his assistance in deciding which improvements we should make to facilitate the sale. He came out to the house, looked it over, and cheerfully provided his expert advice without charge. When we were ready to sell, he did thorough market research to help develop a sales strategy and set a listing price and then kept the research current so that we could assess offers and anticipate the appraisal process. Diligent but low key, he was very effective in bringing us together with buyers and consummating the sale, even when the unexpected occurred. His expertise and confident approach inspires trust and confidence, making what is almost necessarily a stressful process much easier. Although most of our contact was with Tom, it was clear he was supported by staff and colleagues who were also pleasant, talented, and eager to assist us. We would definitely work with him again.”

Thomas Ledvina
“We interviewed three realty companies before selecting Tom & Cindy and Associates for the sale of our townhome in Alexandria, VA. Jason and Cindy came to our home to give us a detailed presentation on the marketing strategies that they provide to make sure that the home is presented to the market place in the best possible light. Jason Schneider was our agent and we were very pleased with his service. He was very knowledgeable and his experience provided for a very positive experience for us during the entire process. He guided us through the decision making before, during, and after the listing of our home. He explained the process along every step of the way and made us feel very comfortable with the process. The amount of time that they shared with us at that time was cause for us to select them as our agent. The advice that Jason shared in establishing the asking price for the home was right on and we were able to get a contract in a matter of a very few days. They were very responsive to our concerns and Jason was very good about staying in touch with us via phone and e-mail once the home was listed. We were very glad to have Jason as our agent and we could not have asked for a more attentive and responsive professional to represent us. Jason was present at the closing to share the special event with us. We would recommend Tom & Cindy and Associates without reservation and would commend Jason for his professionalism and for his attention and concern for a positive outcome to our experience in the sale of our home.”

Katie Delgado
“This was actually the second time we used Tom & Cindy and Associates, both times with Jason. We could not have been more pleased both times. We originally used them to sell our townhouse in 2008 and purchase a single family home. Last year we again used them to sell our house and purchase a new one. Jason and the rest of the team do an outstanding job from beginning to end. They provide valuable advice to help sell your home fast and at a good price. Jason in particular is a great agent, who patiently took us around from house, to house, to house without ever pressuring us to make a decision. He even took us to look at houses long before our house was put on the market so that we could test the waters. We eventually ended up with a wonderful house that we could not be happier with. All in all, they did a wonderful job. Their knowledge and experience make the home buying/selling experience a pleasure.”

Matthew Landau
“We used Stu Burk from the Tom & Cindy Team to sell our townhouse. Stu was great to work with, very knowledgeable about the market, very responsive, and helped us to make informed decisions. He never put any pressure on us to make decisions we weren’t comfortable with. He was very flexible with his schedule and was always willing to meet at times that were most convenient for us.”

Christina Garrett
“The entire team is great, but do yourself a favor and ask for Mike McGeever! Mike is systematic and effective. He made the entire selling experience easy and enjoyable! Thank you, Mike!”

Kathleen Weatherspoon
“We recently had a wonderful experience buying our ‘forever’ home with Agent Mike McGeever! Mike was patient, always available, and always on time. His work ethic, knowledge of the business, and caring for families needs’ should make any new homebuyer want to ask for Mike! Thank you Mike!”

Sarahbeth Roeschlein
“From the first conversation we had with Tom & Cindy and Associates we were very positively impressed. They guided us through changes in the economy that impacted the sale price, kept us posted on showings and showing results, and etc. Even when we were out of the area, they made certain things kept moving and worked with us on the paperwork part of the process. Totally professional, great attitudes, wonderful experience.”

Wayne Bley
“Jason Schneider is one of the best agents I have dealt with. He has helped us purchase 2 homes and sell 4 homes, including rentals. Jason is always punctual with information exchange and paperwork. He negotiates well and will get you the best possible price for your property. The last home we bought was a midnight deal. He was helping us until we actually got the deal and our dream home. Jason, thanks for all your help!”

Greg Garrison
“Jason has been a great realtor with our last two home purchases and selling our townhouse. He’s always available and has a great work ethic!”

Jesse and Susan Lentz
“After talking to agents for over a year, Jim Patrick was very pleasant and had a great demeanor! He had the right amount of personality without being a salesman. It’s appreciated when one does not feel pressured.”

“Our experience was wonderful! You were so professional, pleasant and clearly experts in real estate. You have the entire buy or sell process down and everyone in your office is an expert in their area and highly professional, efficient and friendly. All calls and concerns are addressed right away. You really understood the market and helped us work through the pricing of our house and understanding its value relative to other homes.”

Cindy Gurey
“Thank you so much, we really appreciate all you have done for us. Tom – it was great to see you today, thanks for your letter, referral and advice. Cindy – we are sorry to have missed you today, we know you are busy busy! We will certainly refer anyone and everyone to Tom & Cindy and Associates. Our experience from start to finish was stellar. Your knowledge, responsiveness, and professionalism are top-notch. We noticed your signage in our neighborhood all the time. From beginning to end, everyone on your team was responsive, easy to work with and efficient. You gave us a competitive commission with a lot more to offer like virtual staging, buyer’s agents at the ready, the moving truck, etc.”

Adina/Tony Imes
“Lawrence was patient, knowledgeable, understanding and thorough. We could not ask for anything more. He was very easy to contact and was always quick to return a message. We loved that he was able to e-mail us listings.”

Albert Piombo and Jenna Gorab
“We called in about a property and really liked Barbara. She was great and we had a close working relationship. We would absolutely use her again.”

Cindy and Tom Skiles

Lauren Gertscher
“Tom and Cindy are very friendly and professional. From listing to closing it was a very smooth transaction. This was the sale of my childhood home, which was an emotional time. Tom was very accomodating, understanding and kind to my family.”

Cindy Moore
“My home sold in 4 days for top price–can’t ask for batter than that! You knew my neighborhood well and offered great advice about staging and getting home inspection items taken care of.”

Suzanne Paulson
“Robert,I just wanted to send you a brief note of appreciation for all your hard work on selling my home.  From the financial side of things, this certainly wasn’t the easiest deal, but your real estate acumen and tenacity with the buyer’s agent and lender helped smooth the process and get us to settlement.Two things impressed me most about you:1.  You were by far the most responsive agent with whom I’ve ever worked.  Most of the time you would call and provide updates before I even had the chance to wonder where things stood.  Whenever I reached out to you first with a question, you were always accessible.2.  I have no doubt that your creativity in positioning my home with the appraiser helped save this deal.  I was most concerned with how my 4-bedroom home would appraise when compared to the only other recent comps in the area — all 3-bedrooms.  But your novel approach to highlight comps from when I purchased the home 7 years ago to show the price differential at that time between 4-bedroom and 3-bedroom homes was inspired.  The appraisal went through and the buyer’s loan was approved.Lastly, I was quite impressed with your entire organization.  Everything ran like clockwork, from the photography appointment and development of marketing materials, to the open house, to the scheduling of the settlement.  Handling all of these functions in-house provides a certain efficiency that was definitely appreciated.Although I’ll hopefully soon be moving from this area and will have no need to utilize your services on the purchase of my next home, I will not hesitate to recommend you to friends should they be looking to purchase or sell.My best.”

Mark Carmel
“Cindy, I would recommend you unequivocally to anyone that I knew requiring realtor services in the Northern VA area. You certainly did a fabulous job moving both our properties and both my wife and I loved working with your team. We’re ‘customers for life’!”

Jerry Todd
“We are in the same neighborhood and I noticed that you sell homes faster than other real estate agents. It was an excellent experience and I never expected to sell our house in less than a week! The home presentation on the internet, visual tour and brochure were magnificent. They really helped to sell the house quickly.”

Violeta/Conde Moncade
“My experience was outstanding. Everyone was very professional and helpful. The most helpful thing was advice on how to best prepare our home for showings.”

Doug Davis
“Stu was great. He was knowledgeable, friendly, responsive and we always felt he was working for us. We really appreciated his support on home inspection items. As soon as we got the request from the buyer, Stu had a contractor at our house giving us a quote so we could make a quick but informed desicion on how to respond.”

Tina/Kevin Garrett
“Tom, Thank you for your conscientious attention to our interests during this exchange.   We wish you, Cindy and your Team well.”

Dean/Laurie Hubbs
“Stu was very responsive. I live out of state and he was extremely helpful following up with local work. Our goal of selling our home was a success.”

Jason Donow
“We purchased our home in 2003 with help from Stu Burk, and wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to sell our home this year. Stu has been very helpful over the past 10 years with many things. We give him a 100!”

Rich/Kathy Bruno
“Our experience with Judith Harley has been exceptional. She listened to our concerns and was always knowledeable and pleasant to work with.”

Celina and Chris Gallegos
“Nichole worked tirelessly with us in a real estate transaction in Vienna, VA. Her positive attitude was such an attribute to what can sometimes be a difficult process. Her service was invaluable. I highly recommend Nichole without any reservations.”

Michelle Hunt
“We could not have done better than to have chosen the Tom & Cindy Team and to have had Jenny Ewell as our realtor. Jenny never treated our home purchase as just another business transaction, but recognized it as a deeply personal search for a home and not just a house. Her detailed knowledge of of the area Long and Foster serves helped us consider all the complicated variables that mattered to us (location, schools, traffic, and overall quality of life); and this is something that you can’t just search on the internet – it takes on-the-ground experience. Through all of this, Jenny was cheerful and attentive, always listening to our needs and offering her expert advice whenever needed. Thank you, Jenny, for caring enough to ensure we found the home of our dreams and for making us feel like we mattered.”

Paul Wagner
“As first time buyers we could not have asked for a better experience. It felt like we were working with a close friend or family member. We never felt pressured and that made every step of the process seamless. Ray gets a 10+++.”

Nikhil/Chitrali Sood
“Hello Tom & Cindy, Recommending you is our pleasure. In fact, we recommended you to our former neighbors. Have a great weekend.”

Mary and Jimmy
“We want to extend a heartfelt “THANK YOU” for the wonderful job Mike has done on our behalf. The entire experience (selling our house/buying a new house) was memorable and there is no better way to describe the process than: we started as strangers and we ended up as friends. It was a process about which we knew little and we ended up knowing everything. Mike is very easy to work with and he pays attention to the smallest detail. He answered all of our questions and made things easy for us. Needless to say that he is full of patience and one definitely needs a lot of patience with us. When we sold our home, we got 3 competing offers in the first 3 days the house was on the market and we closed 5k more than we asked for. When we bought our new home, we won the house even though there was a higher offer than ours, because of Mike’s hard work and ability to negotiate all the other terms of the contract that both we as buyers and the sellers wanted. We just want to let everybody know that we WILL use Mike’s help next time when we want to sell/buy a house and we ARE recommending him to family and friends and anybody who needs a real good agent.”

Danny/Andreea Sporea
“You could not be better–a 11+. You offered solid advice and our experience was nothing short of excellent!”

Jim/Deborah Hart
“Excellent! I stated a timeframe in which I wanted my home to be sold and your company sold it 4 months earlier. I was impressed with an offer in 3 days of posting. Cindy gets a 10++.”

WillieDell Bowman
“We were very satisfied with the whole experience. The most helpful thing was Stu Burk’s understanding of the difficulties associated with selling our house. He was very skillful in reassuring us that it would all work out as expected.”

Richard/Carol Jones
“Cindy, I want to thank you and Tom for the great job you did from start to finish selling the house. Mary Jean and I are very pleased not only with the outcome but the prompt service provided from the initial meeting, pricing, marketing, final negotiations to closing.”

Tom/Mary Jean Dixon
“You have an effective mail marketing program and that’s why we chose to work with you. All people involved with the sale were extremely knowledgeable. The most helpful thing was your initial advice on what to fix and not to fix.”

David Potts
“Cindy made the whole process easy for us considering we lived out of state. She was very organized.”

Jim/Diane Byers
“We needed a Kingstowne specialist and had seen all your signs in the neighborhood so we chose your team. Ray was wonderful to work with. It took 10 months to find a home and he was patient, friendly and always positive.”

Grace and Ramon Lee
“We heard about you from your mailings, and signs in the neighborhood. Our experience was excellent; Jason suggested the asking price and had good follow-through during the process. You were confident that it would sell near asking price and it did.”

Gary Roisum
“You are a team of professionals who offer individualized service and work above and beyond. I had peace of mind through the entire process and was happy to be working with experienced agents.”

Charmayne Anderson
“We are return customers–Rob Bradshaw is a great Realtor! Rob always goes above and beyond. This is the third transaction we’ve had with him and he has given top-notch service every time! Always available and extremely knowledgeable. Rob even stepped in to help on our purchase in C’ville, which he had no gain; just to help us and we really appreciated that! He fought to get us a higher appraised value. A+”

Jennifer Layne
“Charisse was our neighbor at Fort Leavenworth and once we moved here, we needed help finding a home. We talked to 3 Realtors, but Charisse called us back first! We had a very good experience. Charisse was always available when I needed her and she drove me everywhere!”

Karen/Chuck Anderson
“We needed a Realtor and heard great things about Jason Schneider from our friends. Everything went smoothly with our home purchase. Jason had good referrals for every piece–lender, inspector, title company. The most helpful things were quick response times, e-signing documents  and Jason’s depth of knowledge/experience.”

Gwen Foutz/Walter Douglas
“Ray Kelly, my agent, went far beyond the norm to assist me in finding me the perfect home.”

Ellihue Henderson
“My experience was very good and you sold my home for a fair price. I saw all your signs and worked with you because of the number of homes you’ve sold.”

Jesse White
“We worked with Jim because of his responsiveness, rapport and follow-up. The automatic on-line update of available properties was great.”

Joseph and Rosemarie Bradley
“It was a positive experience–Jason was extremely timely and we trusted his opinion. Other staff were helpful and nice and the truck rental was extremely beneficial.”

Chris Burt and Stephanie Cox
“Lawrence Hornbake was GREAT! He was patient, honest, knowledgeable and we really enjoyed working with him. We were initially looking for a rental, but Lawrence’s knowledge about the real estate market and and understanding of my needs/goals resulted in us purchasing a home.”

Robert/Rie Myers
“Charisse was always there for us and never stopped looking for us. We got a fantastic home because of her commitment.”

Amy Beitscher/Jon Weinberg
“We walked into your office and you seemed to be most prepared. Joyce was wonderful and gave us options that we did not think were possible. Good experience. The most helpful thing was constant and easy communication.”

Joshua Jordan/Ivy Roe
“Rob was always available to show houses whenever we wanted, on the same day even. He was very flexible and the process was so fast and smooth. I loved Rob’s honest opinions on the houses we looked at and what needed to be done with each.”

Val/Jennifer Votinov
“We worked with Jason before and were very happy so we used him again. We honestly could not have been happier with the entire experience, from selling our old home to purchasing the new one. Jason’s knowledge and experience made it an easier process. His no-pressure technique was nice and did not add to our stress.”

Matthew and Sharmila Landau
“We worked with you because of your command of the local real estate market. Susan Meeks’ experience with property management, loans and real estate brought the whole package for us to effectively be landlords and ultimately successful sellers. There were prompt responses to all inquiries and concerns on any given day and this led to a quick and high-end sales price for our home.”

John/Eleni Brewster
“Great experience! Ray made himself available to us even while on vacation, and helped us walk through the contract over FaceTime.”

Shelly/Brien Edenhart
“Susan, I did want to take a moment to thank you for the excellent service you provided us while managing the property from 2010 – 2013. While having no other experience with a property manager prior to Long and Foster, I will hold them up to the standard that you have set for the industry. Again many thanks and kindest reguards.”

Jared Dunn
“I want you to know that Emily and I are deeply appreciative of all the support you and Calvin have showed us over the years. You have always been courteous, timely, and understanding. Calvin and Absolute Build have bent over backwards to assist in our hectic schedules. I will definitely ensure that I speak very positively about you, Absolute Build, and T&C to anyone that inquires. Again, thank you very much for ALL of your help over the last 3 years.”

John Spencer
“And yes I was not joking when I said I work 18-20 hours days and was truly impressed by you and your work ethics. Time to go to sleep since my alarm is set at 5:15” 🙂 Have great night.

Mohammad Barmawi
“Our experience was very pleasant. Robert was never out of contact in regards to finding plenty of housing options in a busy market, and always kept us updated on the status of our contract.”

Joe/Cindy Miller
“We wanted a team that was knowledgeable about the area we were looking to buy in. We settled on a property fairly quickly, and Tom Rutten had pretty accurately estimated the actual value of the house.”

Allison and Joshua Hirschorn
“Susan, Thank you for letting me know. I really appreciate the quick turn around! You are an excellent property manager.”

Elizabeth Zaprazny

Dina/Bernie Evans
“Tom Rutten made our first time home buying experience enjoyable and really knew his stuff.”

Rae/Roger Vann
“My home-buying experience was great. My agent kept in contact with me and kept me informed through all 3 contracts. The most helpful thing was constant feedback.”

Robin Phillips
“My experience was very favorable. I liked how you worked as a team–Realtor, financier, etc. I would absolutely use Joyce Armstrong again.”

Ida Caruso
“I give Barbara Smith a 10+. I appreciated her honesty and knowledge of my sought-after area.”

Lacy Smith
“Jason was absolutely fantastic! I was a first time seller and had a lot of questions, but he walked me through everything. Jason represents your company very well and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.”

Chad Bauman
“We saw you at the community open house and of course saw lots of your signs thoughout Kingstowne. Our experience was very good–everyone was professional, thorough and responsive. The most helpful thing was sound advice on pricing.”

Gayle Brock and Suellen Bunting
“I liked your track record and the things you noticed when you viewed my property. Cindy was excellent–she knows what she is doing and she is candid. It was helpful having someone present for inspections and closing as I was out of the area. Previously I have worked with 3 other Realtors in the Kingstowne area and Cindy is by far the best.”

Judith Hamrick

Phil Smith
“Good job! Will use you again.”

Dr. Michael Ternisky

Laura & Bill Hartman
“We could not have had a better experience in selling our house. Tom & Cindy took the time to give us a thorough assessment of our market value and a multi-faceted plan of marketing attack. It was wonderful and it worked! Having a pre-market viewing for your agents was very good and brought the final buyer. There were so many “helps”: encouraging us to attend other open houses gave us prespective and even at closing- offering us the use of Tom’s iPad to look up our banking information, was typical of the service and supportive outlook.”

Barbara Thompson
“I worked with you because of your sales record in the neighborhood. All parts of the process from initial listing to the closing were handled in an efficient and professional manner. You found ways to make the sale work and kept me informed.”

Daniel Turner
“Good Day Cindy: Please accept my sincere apology for not writing back sooner. I kept reminding myself to write you and Tom a hearty “Thank You” message but am still engaged with job hunting and unpacking. Beth and I are absolutely thrilled about the service you gave us, and its difficult to find the words to express the depth of our appreciation for your professionalism and superior customer service. We don’t often talk about miracles, but we believe you and Tom are miracle workers! To have sold the house in one week at a new price level in the neighborhood was nothing short of miraculous, given the current real estate market. It is to your credit that we were able to so quickly start a new chapter of our lives in Raleigh, NC, near our son’s family and our grandchildren. In closing, we want to again apologize for the delay in relating our sincere gratitude for your outstanding service!”

S. Roberts

You were very responsive in answering our questions and made sure that all of the tasks got done on time to keep us on schedule for closing.”

Jeff and Amy Morgan
“We had a great experience–we completed the entire process from initial meeting to closing on our home in a month and a half. You offered very responsive service (all hours of the day), flexible hours (Tripp showed us properties on nights and weekends) and it was painless because all the paperwork was done for us. And we of course loved the free moving truck!”

Gerald Barb
“Tim was great! He was very upfront with us and found us homes meeting our needs. Very supportive when we received a strange counter-offer.

I have been associated over the years with multiple real estate brokers and companies. By far, Tom & Cindy and Associates were the best on all counts. I will not hesitate to recommend you all to any prospective sellers or buyers.”

Bill Woodward
“Thank you so much for your assistance in selling our home in Alexandria. Without your help, we would not have sold the house as quickly as we did or for the price we got. You were amazing to work with. We came away incredibly impressed with your accessibility and knowledge throughout the process. Despite being two time zones away, you always answered your phone and called us back no matter how late.Your knowledge of the market made a real difference for us. From the pricing strategy to timing and negotiations, your advice was always spot-on. We are pleased that we chose your firm and had the benefit of working with you.

Timothy Castle
Several months ago we sought to sell our first townhome in Kingstowne and buy a new single family home within the Springfield/Alexandria area. We had originally used Tom & Cindy and Associates in 2003 when we first bought, and were extremely pleased with the service. It was therefore an easy decision for us to seek out your team once again.A member of your team, Stu Burk, helped us in 2003 and again this year. This would be our second home home, but first time selling and buying concurrently. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Burk kept is educated, well informed and on top of current listings. He carefully sought comparable properties and priced our townhome competitively but fairly, and we received a very good offer within just two weeks. At the same time, Mr. Burk actively helped us seek out a new home, and went above and beyond his duties to coordinate the daunting task of coinciding settlements. We faced several challenges during this process and Mr. Burk was able to work through the problems while keeping all parties aware of the situations. We could not have been more pleased with the knowledge and professionalism of Mr. Burk as well as Tom & Cindy and Associates as a whole. We hope Stu receives due recognition for a job we consider well done, and we will not hesitate to recommend your team to family and friends.Sincerely,Scott and Stephanie A’Hearn

Rob was always patient and willing to work even on holidays. I traveled from Germany to look for houses. We spent 2 weeks, wrote 2 contracts, but did not succeed in that time.

Hello Tom,I offer my apologies for taking so long in getting this to you. A new chapter in my life in Texas has begun because of you. 2009 was a horrible year for me: my mother passed away, I left my job of 15 years, and I really just stopped caring about anything, including myself. I had previously put my condo on the market last summer with a different real estate agent…what a mistake that was!!!!Tom, your ability to listen, real estate expertise, unwavering support and perseverance until you sold my condo means more to Art and I than words can express. You never gave up even when I did and you got the job done just as you promised. When it comes to real estate…YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!Many thanks to you, Cindy, and your wonderful staff. We wish you much success and happiness.
