Here’s what some of our clients 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 home 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
“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 and Kathy Todd
“We had a stress-free sale. Tom and Cindy provided excellent suggestions to improve the odds of selling our home quickly and at top dollar. They answered our questions promptly and generated wonderful marketing materials. We would definitely use them again—a great team!”

Tim and Teri West
“I was very happy—you found three tenants for me over the years and made recommendations at the time of sale which made the property sell fast!”

Mary Ann Barbee
“We had an instant connection with Stu Burk! His advice and direction was spot on. He was always accessible via phone and email and “held our hands” through the entire process. Selling a house is a stressful process…Stu was the perfect anesthesia!”

Nikki & Charles Hudnall
“We were very pleased. You were very professional and moved forward without delay and helped us sell our home. You helped make the transition an easy one.”

Steven & Marilyn Plate
“We had already bought a new home in another state. Tom and Cindy took care of everything to get our house sold quickly. We received multiple offers in the first 48 hours and we were able to close for more than our listing price!”

Michael and Jeriann Kelly
“[Robert is] a knowledgeable, determined agent who went above and beyond.”

Timothy and Wanda McCandless
“Excellent, no complaints at all. Jason stayed on top of everything and helped us with every step.”

Travis and Julia Grant
“Cindy and Jason came out on the first visit – we were very impressed. Once we listed, discussions with Jason were very helpful.”

Jack Tucker
“Very professional and minimal stress. [The most helpful thing offered during the transaction was} the immediate feedback and weekly updates.”

Leona Moten
“Jason was very professional and came prepared. He had great advice and was very knowledgeable about the market in my neighborhood.”

Mike and Ann Prosperi
“Excellent service on all counts! Went above and beyond our expectations. A pleasure to work with, even when it was long distance; always responsive.”

Karen Neckorcuk
“Stu Burk went the extra mile many, many times. Since we moved to florida, we relied on Stu to do many things we should have done ourselves.”

Donald and Nancy Crane

“Ray Kelly and the Tom & Cindy team were professional, courteous, honest and genuine. ?Service after the initial offer through settlement, especially during the final walk-thru inspection. ?We were out of the country for much of the process and everything went well, thanks to Ray.”

Ken and Hester Parson

“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.”

John and Diane Andrews

“Our experience was very positive. Lawrence was quick to respond to emails and calls when we had questions or concerns.”

Philip Henri

“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

“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

“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

“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 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

“Amazing response time and reliability, top notch handling of all aspects and details of each transaction; good communication!”

George and Jan Monroe

“Very well run operation and coordination amongst team members, thus great communication to me!”

Timothy and Shana Twitchell

“Tom and Cindy were excellent, they helped describe the sequence of events and explained how we could sell the house even though we were moving overseas.”

Larry and Zima Limbaugh

“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

“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

“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 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

“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 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

“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

“Dear Barbara, Cindy & Tom, Many thanks for all your advice, assistance and hard work on selling our home! Your efforts really paid off for us!”

Toni & Kevin Mattoch

“The initial meeting left us impressed and there was no pressure! Jason always made time to take us to numerous houses and his proactiveness enabled us to move quickly on buying and selling in a very hot NOVA market. The most helpful thing was honest advice and insight- from making offers to not going overboard with the home we were selling.”

Phil Smith

“Good job! Will use you again.”

Dr. Michael Ternisky

“We worked with you because of your knowledge of the area, the number of homes you’ve sold and the proximity of your office to our home. You offered advice on preparing the house for the market and provided periodic updates on the status of our sale”

Imelda and Ramon Cabo

“My experience was very positive. You gave honest and helpful guidance on the sale and represented me at the final closing. Thanks for being so responsive to my questions. Feedback info on the status of the listing/sale was very helpful.”

Patricia Flynt

“Tom & Cindy were selling a house that we wanted to look at and we decided to work with them because of their professionalism. We had a very good experience–our home sold in 3 days! We loved the daily updates on homes for sale.”

Llynn & Kevin Autrey

“We were most impressed with the preparation for the open house and how well Lawrence handled it. Every team member we worked with was friendly and professional. The team was very much in sync and each step was fast and thorough.”

Maria Morgan

“Susan Meeks is a Rock Star!! She went above and beyond the call of duty in handling a very complex short sale. We got lots of solid advice from her. I will absolutely recommend you to all my snow shovel bearing friends in DC!”

John Queen

“Our experience was everything we could have hoped for. You made a very stressful process easy and straight forward. Thanks for answering all our questions and for successfully handling the counter offer.”

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!”

Tom Achterberg

“Our experience was absolutely incredible! The house sold quickly–every suggestion that Tim gave us resulted in a large open house and a quick sale.”

Buddy and Rebecca Clark

“Tom and Cindy is a hardworking and honest agency to get your home sold. Also patient and helpful in finding/buying a new home. Highly recommend to all family and friends.”

Sharyn Tomita

Ed Bezdziecki

“I came into your office as a walk-in. Your office and staff have a very friendly and professional atmosphere for doing real estate transactions. My experience was totally awesome; great service from selling to buying my new home! It made my moving experience one of the best! You offered really useful tips in both selling and buying my new home.”

Denise Mills

“We felt so comfortable with your track record and our experience was fantastic! Everyone was very professional and up-front, without being overbearing or too hands off. We were very impressed with your team! Home buying and selling can be a very stressful experience and we appreciated how much you tried to remove the stress from the process.”

Drew and Natalie Pathwick

“You really know Kingstowne and our experience was excellent! Your patience in going through the counter offer was key.”

Mitch and Ruth Flanagan

“The immediate attention and use of technology were key for us. Jason gave a great presentation and offered high tech, fast response times, superior customer service and attention to details.”

Beatrice Mines

“It was a great and positive experience. Loved working with Jason. He was always so personable and responsive. He also helped me out with suggestions for moving companies and a wonderful man who did my deck work. What was the most helpful thing you offered? I guess I would have to say your knowledge and experience, although the hand-holding Jason did through this process was priceless!!*

S. Roberts

“We chose you because of your success selling homes in Runnymeade. We have no complaints–our house got a contract in only 16 days and we got close to our asking price! 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

“Cindy and Tom – Thank you and your team for the great job on the sale of my house at 6721 Royal Thomas Way. Your marketing strategy and your expert team and office staff were the most expert professionals. Also, Cindy, thank you for helping me with the last minute details before settlement – you are great!

Brenda and Fred Anci

“Dear Tom & Cindy: This is a long overdue letter to express my sincere thanks for the extraordinary and dedicated support from you and your team for the sale of our Essex Square condo and the purchase of the condo in Woodbridge for my sister-in-law. In this very challenging real estate climate, it was so comforting to have the experience and skills of you and your team, especially Jim, Ruth and the whole office support staff, at our side from beginning to end. 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. We will happily recommend you to any of our friends and neighbors in the community. Your patience, expertise, always positive approach and accessibility are an unbeatable combination.”

Arlen and Staci Lancaster

“Stu was great! Never over promised or under delivered. I lost over $100K from what I paid for my property, but still came out of the experience believing Stu did everything he could. A very dedicated professional!”

Timothy Castle

“We would like to express our appreciation to the team who made our journey of selling and purchasing a home a very positive experience. From the first meeting we felt like we were in very capable and trustworthy hands. We’ll recommend you to everyone we know.”

Joe and Alanna Blake

“We had a great experience–very happy all around. The team was very knowledgeable and professional. Stu is awesome! The most helpful thing was endless guidance.”

Alissa Parady

“I’m writing in reference to your representative Mr. Stu Burk, and the selling of my townhouse which closed on 15 July. I selected Long and Foster as your success in the Willow Creek community was obvious over the 7 months that it took me to renovate the townhouse. I found the process to be swift, organized and Mr Burk’s support in making the deal as smooth as possible a pleasure to deal with. He did everything possible to market and close on the property as a professional real estate associate should. I would be pleased to recommend him and your organization in the future. Thank you for all of your efforts in my behalf.”

Tom Myers

“You are truly an expert in your field and offer very timely and professional service. I had a contract in 9 days with a well-qualified buyer!”

Keitha Hunt

“Thanks, Tom, for everything. We really appreciated the way you handled the entire process– your savvy and overall professionalism. I will recommend you to any friends who require a realtor in NOVA.”

Wayne Palmer

“Choosing your firm was one of the easiest business desicions I have ever made. I found both of you and your entire staff to be very professional, courteous and efficient in all communications. Your work in showing the house, gathering offers and aiding me in the selection of the final contract was simply superb.”

Michael Doubler

“It was really great working with your team–everyone worked well together and really knew their stuff. Your quick and accurate knowledge of the real estate market was key. I strongly feel that without that pulse, we would still be on the market.”

Phil Hagen

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.
