What our clients are saying

Tom was an excellent agent. The entire process from initial walk-through of the property with him, until the purchasers final walk-through at closing went very smoothly. From the time of my initial meeting with Tom until a contract for the property was delivered was about 2 1/2 weeks, with closing occurring three weeks thereafter. We agreed on the listing price at a level to encourage buyer activity and the contract was in excess of the list price. This was one of the most professionally handled processes I have had the privilege to be involved with and I have bought/sold over a dozen homes. I highly recommend Tom, Cindy and their entire company.

Tom and Cindy have sold 2 homes for me in the Lorton area. The first one was a townhouse condo that sold for $20k over asking. The second was a single family home that sold for $30k over asking. We followed every single one of their recommendations. The pictures they take are phenomenal. I would recommend them for sure!!!

Brad Birch

Stu Burk is an outstanding Realtor! Stu was the Buyers Agent and I was the Listing Agent on a recent transaction. Challenges on both sides with our clients. As a Principal Broker, I had participated in many real estate transactions and I can say Stu is in the top 1% of all Realtors. Well done! Tobin Seven, Principal Broker and Veteran.

Jason Schneider was my listing agent. He was very personable and provided phenomenal customer service. I am active duty military and my cross country move was short-fused. Jason met with me, I appreciated his transparency and honesty, we executed a plan to sell my house in Island Creek with minimal stress on me. It was hands down the best realtor experience I have encountered while buying or selling homes. I highly recommend using Jason as your listing agent!

Tammi Lawler

We had a contract for our home this summer (2023) the first day it went on the market, well above asking price, without having to do a single open house or replace older appliances. With Realtor Jason Schneider advising us, the process went quite well. Obviously, his guidance on pricing was spot on. His knowledge of our market was clearly helpful as well. All aspects of the sale went smoothly. Jason was available whenever we needed him during the entire process. The photographer also deserves kudos for some great photos.

Susan Drach

Jason Schneider was the lead agent in selling my townhouse in Alexandria, VA. Jason was very knowledgeable about the current market and what needed to be done to the house to improve the sales price without going overboard on expenses. He was very responsive and kept me up to date on everything in spite of the fact that I was away for most of the time. Highly recommended!

Mike Xapsos

Cindy was absolutely flawless with our home sale. She is clearly the best in her profession because of her expertise and experience. We were extremely happy with the offer we got on our home. I highly recommend Cindy and her team to anybody who moves into the NOVA/DC area.

John Kim

The lead agent on our home sale was Jason Schneider. He was the absolute best. His negotiating skills were excellent. Jason kept in the loop every step of the way. He was responsive to our many questions. We are so happy we went with Jason and would highly recommend him. 26 days - on market to closing. if you want to get the best deal out there, do yourself a favor and call Jason Schneider.

Carole Mankin

Stu Burk, with Tom & Cindy and Associates, went above and beyond in overseeing the successful sale of my home. I benefited from his creative strategies, as there were some unusual circumstances involved, including long distance. His open communication and thorough detail were a constant source of reassurance, that I was in the best hands. Stu's kind and caring demeanor throughout the entire process, made me feel as though I was his only client, and by closing day, a friend. I highly recommend Stu and would use him again myself!

Cherie Hally

We were on a tight turn around to find a home in the Northern Virginia area in a very tough market for available homes. We worked with Keith from Tom and Cindy's office. Turns out, we were in GREAT hands. Keith patiently explained the realities of what we we facing and helped us find several possibilities based on our requirements. He did several virtual showings which made it feel as though we were right there with him. He even let us know if there were any smells or noises! When we were able to come to the area in person, Keith helped us prioritize our possible choices and took us around to multiple showings. When we narrowed is down to two possibilities, Keith used his experience to get us the perfect house for a price well within our comfort zone. We would highly recommend Keith to anyone looking to buy or sell a property! Thanks Keith!


Our realtor, Yvonne Collins, was absolutely amazing! She made the home buying process easy and efficient. She spent the first day we looked at homes asking me what was acceptable and unacceptable for our family. Not one time during the process did I feel rushed or forced to make a purchase. Yvonne asked about a comfortable budget for us and from there, she pointed us in the right direction. She was honest and seemed genuinely passionate about finding people homes. She was extremely knowledgeable, as she answered nearly all of my questions (and I question The one or two times she did not have an immediate answer to one of my ridiculous questions, she found the answer (literally, within the same day). We had been in the area for three years, had experiences with four realtors, and she was the ONLY one we felt comfortable with. Now, when it came to finding homes that fit our wants/needs, she would call as soon as she saw one. She had open availability and worked around my complicated schedule. We met to view several homes and I felt comfortable in letting her know within minutes if I wasn't interested. She never displayed frustration, but continued to encourage me and reinforce the fact that she wanted us to be satisfied. Early one Sunday morning (~8AM), she knew I was out of town, but notified me that she had found a home that she thought would truly work for my family. I ended up driving a few hours to see it and she was correct! All worked out extremely well. Needless to say, I 100% plan to refer her to anyone looking for a realtor and plan to reach out to her for our future home buying/selling needs!

Jason Schneider, the lead agent, was everything I had hoped to find in a realtor. I live in Bethesda, Maryland, and my cousin, who lived in Alexandria, Virginia, passed and left a condo in her estate. I had no experience with selling a home in Virginia. I was so blessed to see a flyer from Tom & Cindy Associates with Long and Foster Realtors in my cousin's mail. I called Tom & Cindy Associates and Jason, the lead agent, was assigned to assist me in selling the condo. I am forever grateful to have worked with Jason, who is respectful, responsive, and thorough and took care of all the details in preparing the condo for sale. This was particularly important to me since I live out of state. Jason hired the workers to replace the carpeting with new carpeting, paint the condo, and replace the appliances and counters with granite. The condo was transformed. The process took just under two months from first meeting Jason to settlement. The condo was placed for sale, received several offers immediately, and sold well above the asking price. I highly recommend lead agent Jason Schneider, and give him five stars.

Merrily Hardisty

I recently sold my house with Jason Schneider as my realtor. He excelled at prompt, clear communication and had excellent advice about what needed to be improved in the house and selecting a contractor. Jason knows the area well and gave great advice about where to price the house when it went on the market. He was also able to do everything remotely, without requiring me to be on site, which I really appreciated. It was a great experience overall and I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a realtor

Aaron Richer

I recently sold my home in Alexandria while I was living out of state, and I felt very confident in my decision to use Jason Schneider as my Lead Agent. Since this was my first time selling a house, I was a bit nervous, but I still had complete confidence in his ability to sell my home and I knew he was looking out for my best interest. As the seller, it’s always harder to deal with things when you no longer live in the area, but Jason took care of everything for me. In fact, he went above and beyond on a number if things. Having this confidence in Jason, backed my his years of experience, made the whole experience a lot easier.

Elizabeth Brady

Oh what a wonderful team. Very professional, extremely courteous, and always thinking of providing the best possible solutions in selling, buying, or managing a home. Look no further, if you want the best of the best, call Tom or Cindy and Associates to handle your real estate needs. My house was not even listed yet and it was sold one month earlier than my requested date for 805K because Tom and Cindy are that good. You can't go wrong with Team Tom & Cindy.

Dale Fuller

Jason Schneider was our lead agent for the sale of our Springfield house. He was extremely knowledgeable and wonderful throughout the process. He gave us great feedback and advice that ultimately led to an offer we accepted. Communication is extremely important to us, and Jason provided top notch service. We are thankful for his time and would highly recommend him as an agent!

Erika Mitchell

We recently sold our home in Alexandria VA. After interviewing several realtors, we chose Tom and Cindy and Associates. Jason Schneider was the Lead Agent and primary contact for us during the entire process. Jason’s advice before posting, while showing the home, during the offer evaluations and final offer acceptance was absolutely superb. His marketing team did a remarkable job with a photo shoot that resulted in hard copy brochures and e-postings on all major realty websites. The effectiveness of this marketing was evident in the large number of private showings scheduled as well as inquiries from potential buyers and comments from many friends all across the U.S. who saw the postings. Jason’s professional advice in preparing the home for sale, in developing an agreed upon strategy before posting and in all negotiations on bids and final offer acceptance resulted in our obtaining a higher final sale price than would have been possible with any of the other realtors we interviewed. He was ALWAYS available to address any question or concern we had, and he consistently communicated with us to discuss our strategy based on the evolving market and feedback from property showings. Jason Schneider is the professional you want as your realtor whether selling or buying a home. He will skillfully guide you through this anxious undertaking and make or save you money in every phase of the process. Well done, thank you and Semper Fi Jason Schneider.

Sam & Libby Hall

Dara Mossburg made buying and selling our first home so easy! We have only positive things to say about her. When looking to buy, she was able to get us showings quickly and was flexible to our availability. When selling, she helped us organize the house for it to show well. This helped us receive multiple offers the weekend the house went on the market and get above our asking price. She was always responsive and reached out often to make sure we we weren't overwhelmed and knew the next steps in the process. If we hadn't moved away, we would be using her for all our real estate needs. We definitely recommend working with Dara!

Kim Manzano

Jason Schneider, the lead agent, made the process of selling our home absolutely seamless. His knowledge, accessibility, friendly manner, and professionalism only begin to describe why it all worked so well. We highly recommend Jason for prospective sellers, or buyers, who want to experience the excellence that we did. Thanks, Jason!

Carla Prossner

We just sold a house in the Alexandria area and I just have to let you know we had NOTHING but a great experience with their entire team. I cannot tell you how great these two and their team was to work with. We are actually from out of town and needed to sell our home in Virginia and not one time were we not informed of everything and given every opportunity to know what was going on with the selling of our home. The communication was fantastic. I would HIGHLY recommend Tom and Cindy and Associates. I would go as so far as to say stop looking for anyone else to help you, these guys are great.

Pat Swartzendruber

Jason Schneider, the lead agent, was very easy to work with. He is knowledgeable, accessible, flexible, friendly, and professional. He gave my wife and I a reasonable estimation of the asking price up front. When we decided to make some last-minute improvements and up the price, he went right along with that. I highly recommend Jason.

Alexis VanL-Maas

H. Jason Schneider, Lead Agent, sold our house in record time during the holiday season. Despite all of the obstacles, his professionalism and expertise made for a satisfying experience and a smooth transition for us. Mr. Schneider was always courteous and responsive. We highly recommend him to potential clients for his services.

Dan & Joanne Rekas

When my husband and I decided to look for our next home in the Kingstowne area, we chose Tom&Cindy with Jason Schneider as our lead agent. As a rookie home buyer, the entire process was daunting, but having a transparent realtor who was quick to respond and easy to communicate with made the whole process easier. Jason was very knowledgeable and professional and instrumental in us buying our first house. I highly recommend Tom & Cindy and Jason.

Kara Hong

Selling a house is an arduous task, the realtor agent is the most important supporter. I had the pleasure of engaging Jason Schneider from Tom and Cindy Realtors as my agent. I interviewed 3 different realtors before selecting Jason, he and I connected from the very beginning. He was professional, brought current, comparable listings, provided suggestions for listing my home, explained the entire process and was accessible to me the entire time, and was at the closing. He checked on me after closing to ensure that I received everything that was promised to me before we left the closing. Long and Foster carries a great reputation, but the agent is the person that executes the superior outcome, Jason is that person. Thank You!

Janice Barclay

Jason Schneider who was the lead agent for Tom & Cindy and Associates, was fantastic in representing me as the seller. The entire process of selling my townhouse was streamlined and stress free. Jason was always quick to respond if I had any questions, and he provided me with guidance when it came to accepting the best offer for my situation. The sale of my townhouse received well above asking price, including the highest purchase price compared to other townhomes in the property’s respective neighborhoods. Jason was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a real estate agent that is looking to secure the best deal for the seller's situation.

Danielle Brant

Our Lead Agent was Jason Schneider, who sold our townhome in March 2023. He was knowledgeable, attentive, responsive, and efficient. We had sold 5 homes in the past, and this sale was by far, the smoothest and fastest sale. Our home sold in 3 days for over asking price. Thanks, Jason!

Edna Imm

****Extremely responsive and superb service**** Jason Schneider, the lead agent from Tom & Cindy and Associates, played a pivotal role in the sale of our two rental properties which held tenants during the property showing process. I interviewed three real estate agents and Jason was the most impressive in regards to his extensive experience and knowledge of the market. We ran into multiple hurdles (as most usually do during the home-selling process), but Jason always assured me he would handle the issue and keep me informed....and he stood by his word. Although the tenants were informed of the sales of the properties and agreed to assist in the showings, we ran into an issue of the tenants later not being cooperative. Jason took the stress off of me and coordinated directly with the tenants to ensure showings occurred and the properties received the attention they needed to receive multiple offers. Jason worked late into the night multiple days to secure the best offers. We had a buyer who requested to back-out at the last minute (ultimate stressor!) and Jason was not only able to secure another buyer, he was able to obtain more money for us when it was all finalized! For the sale of both properties, we received over asking price, to include the highest AND second highest purchase prices in the properties' respective neighborhoods! Jason was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a responsive, hard-working, real estate agent who will get you the best deal/price possible for your property!

Jillian Dorghoud

We couldn't have asked for a better lead agent for selling our home in the truly unique real estate market in 2022. Jason provided and executed a winning sales plan from day one for us. In addition to his expertise and experience, he was able to call upon everyone of the Tom & Cindy team for superior work throughout the process. Above all, Jason was extremely responsive to all of our communications for a seamless experience. We highly recommend Jason with Tom & Cindy and Associates!


We reached out to Tom & Cindy realtors because they have many years of experience selling homes in our area. But Jason Schneider, our lead agent, went above and beyond, providing expert information on market dynamics, great advice on pricing and evaluating offers, quick replies to our questions no matter the day or time, recommendations for contractors, beautiful brochures and photos, and enthusiastic video and online marketing. Jason was not only savvy but a pleasure to work with! We thought selling our home would be super stressful but with the Tom & Cindy team it was smooth sailing….and completed in a few quick weeks!

Cindy Elliot

We recently had the privilege to work with Cindy while selling our home. She is the epitome of a professional. As a local, she knows the area in and out. Cindy will always answer your questions thoroughly, and speedily. You can always count on her to get you the best value. We would absolutely recommend her and her team.

Emily Kim

Having lived in Kingstowne for over 20 years, we have seen the Tom & Cindy real estate signs all over the neighborhood. There is a reason why they are so popular, they are very good at taking care of their clients. Jason Schneider was our lead agent. He was very responsive and knew how to navigate the Alexandria/Kingstowne market. He gave us great advice on the timing of when to put our house on the market. I highly recommend "Tom & Cindy", especially Jason Schneider.

Mark Fajna

Worked with Jason as our lead agent and it was the best choice we could have made! He was prepared with market data and strategy, which made the home-selling process easy! His knowledge of the local area was spot on. We trusted him on his pricing recommendation and had over a dozen showings scheduled almost immediately after going live on the market. Jason was on the money...literally. When he told us what he thought the house could sell for, we didn't believe fact, we sold for $5K over his guess. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I worked with Keith Mossburg during our home search and we could not recommend him highly enough. As first-time home buyers, we were new to the entire process and he was able to make it comprehensible while helping us be comfortable with our decisions. Keith answered every question we had, from the simple to the complex, in great detail and with a lot of patience. His knowledge of the area and ability to guide us and provide recommendations were invaluable. He was also exceptionally responsive to every email and phone call and was always available and on time for appointments. We found the perfect townhouse for us and we attribute the ease of the process entirely to Keith and his happy and calm disposition. We would be thrilled to work with him again the future

Brittany Macias

We retained Tom & Cindy to sell our home. Mr. Jason Schneider was our lead agent. They made it easy to sell our house. They were extremely responsive and their service was impeccable. Jason exceeded all of our expectations during the process. They were kind, courteous and responsive. Everything was explained and there were no hidden costs in the end. If you are in the market to sell or buy a home retain Tom & Cindy for your needs. It could be the difference of getting all of your desires met at the price you want.

Mike and Pong Ables

Jason Schneider was extremely helpful, responsive and knowledgeable about the market. We were overseas during our house search and Jason was pretty much our eyes and ears here when assessing properties. We found our dream home and couldn’t be happier.

James S.

We contacted Tom & Cindy in October 2019 with the intent of putting our house on the market in February after we were settled in our new house. They sent a professional photographer out to photograph the exterior while there were still leaves on the trees, rather than waiting until we were ready to market the property. The brochures they produced after the interior photos were taken were superb, and the house sold slightly above list price after only 12 days on the market. We closed 4 weeks later, with funds wired to our account the next day. Can’t ask for much more in a realtor or associated staff!

Kathy & Dave Carlson

Choosing Jason Schneider as our realtor was 100% the right decision for our house sale and purchase. We were so stressed about the process of selling AND buying and how all of that would work, and Jason put our mind at ease. He shared his extensive experience with that process and how we could make that go as smoothly as possible. He made sure we were on top of our chosen schedule to get the house ready, list the house and find a new one. He was easy to get a hold of and always got back to us right away whenever we needed something. One of the best things about our experience with him was that he knew exactly which improvements needed to be made to our home prior to selling. He knows the area very well, and the suggestions he made were within our budget and ended up having a bigger return than we had hoped. We had three contracts on our house within two days, and Jason’s savvy really came in handy when it came to choosing the right contract that would be the best for our family and give us the time we needed to find another house. To top things off, we had VERY specific requirements in our next home to purchase: A certain number of beds/baths for children, home business considerations which included having 3 levels, etc. It’s no secret that inventory is very low in the immediate area for a 3-story colonial house (within our budget and school district), so we were a little concerned we wouldn’t find something suitable. Thankfully, having that extra time to search made the difference when we found our dream home. The house we wanted was extremely competitive, but Jason’s expertise again helped us to structure a contract that was more desirable to the sellers. Almost a year later, we can’t believe how well the whole process went, and we were so happy with Jason’s professionalism and the confidence that came from knowing we were in good hands. Hire Jason- you won’t be disappointed!
