Saying good-bye to a home that we had lived in for almost nineteen years...was difficult, and your understanding of and sensitivity to the emotions that were connected with our decision to move meant a lot to us. ...Thanks to your hard work, dedication, patience, negotiation strategies, and extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, we were not only able to sell our former home but we also purchased our beautiful new home."
She was extremely patient, understanding, and helpful throughout the whole process of finding a great rental. She was extremely helpful even after all the paperwork was signed and followed up with any questions I had even when she really didn't have to at that point. Definitely recommend!

Cindy is so available and so on top of things that everything went so smoothly. She does not rest. She takes care of every detail for you. She sold our home in Falls Church after just a few days on the market. But not only did she sell the house, she carried us through each step of the deal without a single worry to us. This is the 2nd place she has sold for us. A condo in DC and a single family home in Falls Church. You will love working with her. Really though - you will love how she works for YOU!
Excellent, NO hassle and NO drama, professional! I wished I had more homes to sell and pick Caroline Roberts many more times! 10 stars all the way!
He is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I will turn to James when I am looking for another property to purchase.
She is very knowledgeable while also very personable. She makes sure you are comfortable and taken care of, always having your best interests at heart. I am so happy with her efforts that I've already started recommending her to everyone I know. She goes above and beyond from beginning to end, she even sent us a little congratulations card once we had moved in. A GREAT realtor. (from Zillow https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
It was such a great transaction – I really appreciate everything!
Has always had my best interest in mind. Has saved me money in some form or fashion, either by her experience or knowledge of the industry and market. She is the best and I highly recommend her to anyone in the VA/MD/DC markets.
Her depth of knowledge and positive attitude made all the difference in our home selling and buying experience. She had helpful strategies and insights that helped us get the home we wanted at a great price and made the process of selling our previous house go very smoothly. Cindy's experience makes all the difference! I highly recommend her!
She is helpful at every step in the process especially for a first time home buyer (She is also very patient!) My husband and I had a great experience working with Stephanie and buying our first house. (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
She was diligent in learning about what we most wanted in a home and consistently sent updated sale options for our review. She was also quick to respond and show any homes we found on our own. Through the process, I felt comfortable and secure with her as our lead in negotiations. With her help, we were able to negotiate cash back to our pockets and are very happy with our new home! (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
We have used other local realtors in the past but you are head and shoulders above the rest and we thank you!
.. and that it was less than two months ago that I was packing up the house and truck. I appreciate all you did to keep things moving smoothly since then! Best, Pam
She helped us through our first home and now our second. We are very picky buyers and both times she was patient with us and explained anything we didn’t know or understand. She had always had our best interest at heart. It never felt like she was trying to just sell us a house, it felt like she was trying to find us the RIGHT home.
She was great at walking us through the homebuying process, from scheduling house visits, to negotiating with the seller's agent, to answering all our questions about the paperwork. Stephanie was quick to respond to our questions, and speedy to deliver each official step through DocuSign. She brought confidence, reassurance, and humor to the sometimes stressful process, and gave us a sweet personalized gift on closing day. I'm delighted with the first home we've bought, and we couldn't have done it without Stephanie. (from FB page: StephanieIsYourRealtor)
Josh & I are first time home buyers, and we trusted Jenifer to help us find our place after having her recommended to us by two couples, both of whom had great experiences with her. During our house hunting adventures, before we found Jenifer, we spoke with many realtors. Not a single one of them was as helpful, courteous, professional or patient as Jenifer. During the process and weeks since the closing, Jenifer has been available to us practically around the clock to answer our questions, give solicited advice, and offer useful tips and suggestions. Jenifer is incredibly knowledgeable about the complex house hunting and purchasing process, and she explained everything to us in detail, never once making us feel ignorant or patronized because it was our first time and we basically knew nothing. We would recommend Jenifer to anyone in the area looking for an outstanding realtor who is not only competent, but goes above and beyond for her clients at every turn.
Cindy showed me and my husband multiple homes and had valuable insights on "money pit" issues in some of the contenders. When we ultimately found our dream home through her MLS search tool, Cindy worked closely with us to develop our offer, which was complicated by the fact that it was contingent on the sale of my condo. Despite this drawback, the sellers accepted our offer after a few rounds of negotiation, on which Cindy advised. The whole process moved much more quickly than I had expected, and Cindy was critical in helping me to identify a handful of fixes/upgrades to my condo that made a difference when we put it on the market (in only three weeks!). The professional brochure that Cindy put together also helped a great deal. We received an all cash offer for asking price on the day of our first open house, which Cindy expertly conducted. Thereafter, Cindy was extremely helpful with the house inspection, addressing HICRA items (at both properties), and other issues. With her help, we achieved a simultaneous close of the sale of my condo and purchase of my new house in only two months from the day that we ratified the contingent contract on the house. A land speed record! I would definitely use Cindy again (although I hope to never move again!), and I would recommend her to anyone who wants a real go-getter real estate agent. She's the best!
..I admire you professionally...thank you for everything."
It was so nice to have someone we could trust working with us and helping us to make one of the most important decisions of our life. We absolutely love the house and we are even getting up early on the weekends to get our day of house activities started. We are so grateful to you for your persistence, guidance and encouragement throughout the entire process.
It's all a new beginning for me and you really helped make that possible. As soon as I get settled I would love it if you could come over for a visit. Again thank you for everything and I hope to see you soon.
We made a move across the country and she was able to make the process virtually painless. She was very knowledgeable about the area and helping us look for and find the type of neighborhood and surrounding areas that we wanted. I had very specific requirements for what I was looking for and she was able to meet all of those and help us find the perfect home to rent. She was very easy to talk to and always happy to help. I know I had a lot of questions and concerns and she made me feel like I was no bother at all and happily answered each concern. She was very professional but made it really easy to talk to her. She was very each to get in contact with and maintained great communication. I would highly recommend Stephanie Barry! (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
Stephanie came highly recommended from a close friend and she has more than lived up to her praise. My fiancee and I were shopping for our first condo and, frankly, we felt a little overwhelmed by it all. Stephanie was incredibly flexible with her time, showing us several homes within a very short time frame, and was patient with our first-time buyer questions. I was surprised at her vast depth of knowledge of the area since we were simultaneously looking at properties in Reston, Merrifield, and Arlington. When we found a place that we were interested in, we were informed that there was already an offer placed on the property and that we would have to have an offer submitted in 24 hours. Stephanie was integral in converting our interest into an offer within the 24-hour turn around period. Throughout the following negotiations, Stephanie advocated for our needs effectively, securing us the property at our asking price and mediating the purchase of several furniture pieces that the previous owner was willing to part with. We decided to do our loan through Weichert, in part because of how confident we were in Stephanie and her team. We closed this week, 2/5/2018, and could not be happier. Thank you again for making the process so painless and for being a fun realtor! (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
That said, this guy is great! :-)
Without you we not only would not have sold our house but we would not have bought the house we moved into. Had we tried to do this on our own, we would have given up and missed the opportunities we were able to find. You understood our point of view on selling and buying, did not pressure us to make unnecessary fix-ups to the house we wanted to sell, and looked for the type of house we were looking to move into. When we came down to the end, with a contract on our house and crunch time on finding another house, you offered good advice based on experience. Your guidance on selling price and buying price was especially welcome. We particularly want to commend your patience with the endless process of buying and selling, paying attention to the small print in the contract, helping us to find the right people to do minor fix-ups, recommending the right inspectors that we had confidence in. The after sales service has also been right on the mark. You have an expert team in Jean and Marianne who are there to answer questions and get things done. Thanks again. We think of you when we marvel at the house we bought. Best wishes, Eileen and George Swicker
Lisa worked tirelessly to find us the perfect place that met our finances as well as our living space needs in a neighborhood that had all the shopping and leisure amenities typically found in congested urban areas where one would pay much higher prices. While deployed, Lisa took the time to visit numerous places for us, which allowed us to pick a place site unseen saving us tons of time and money. I could not rave more about the customer service we received from Lisa Thompson. I continue to recommend her services to any and all military and government personnel I know who are either moving to or away from the National Capital Region. Her professionalism made the typical moving experience simple, enjoyable, and stress free.
She was extremely patient with us when we began our process of selling and purchasing a home. She is flexible with what works best for you, knowledgeable about the market and provides necessary guidance to have a successful experience. If we didn't have her we would literally not have our perfect home as she encourage us to keep going. I would highly recommend Stephanie as she is a great partner to go with you on the journey of selling and finding your new home.

Wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your great efforts on behalf of your buyers for the sale of 706 Huntsman Place in Herndon. I believe the Bennetts are happy to know their family home is now owned and to be enjoyed by such a nice family. It was a pleasure working with you and I wish all agents today provided their clients with as much care as you obviously do. All the best,
This was our first time buying a home, and Stephanie’s expertise and advice was invaluable. She was very patient and helpful, and maintained great communication throughout the entire process. She was a shining star every step of the way, constantly giving great advice and simplifying the process. For me, I thought buying a house would be the most stressful thing ever but Stephanie went above and beyond and we are very happy with the results. She has since kept in touch with us and has become a trusted friend we can rely on for any new question we might have. We can’t recommend her enough. (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
You taught us as much and showed us more in 8 days than anyone else did over several months. We are sorry we did not get the chance to work together, but this prior opportunity basically fell back into our laps. I'd like to think that your advice let us know that it was the right move for us. If we are ever in the market again, we will call you. As I mentioned, we will also be recommending your to our friends who are looking for a dedicated and energetic agent.
Being my first home, I obviously had a lot of questions along the way. Stephanie was always patient and answered every question I had and kept me informed throughout the process, keeping my mind at ease. She helped me overcome the stresses of first time home buying and found me the perfect home. (from Zillow https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
She was generally very responsive to my questions, good about following up with me, and didn't try encouraging me to overbuy a home I couldn't reasonably afford. We viewed many homes together so I don't feel as though she tried to unload a property on me to get my business quickly. She helped guide me through the process start to finish and even after the fact. I would highly recommend her to a fellow prospective home buyer as I had a great experience working with her. (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
We just wanted to express out thanks and let you know how much we appreciated you.
MY WIFE AND I INTERVIEWED SEVERAL AGENTS TO UNDERTAKE THE SALE OF OUR CURRENT HOME AND THE PURCHASE OF OUR NEW HOME. CINDY BELINE STOOD OUT FROM THE REST. HER POSITIVE ATTITUDE WAS INFECTIOUS. HER KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOUSING MARKET (PAST, CURRENT AND WHERE IT WAS HEADING) WAS IMPRESSIVE. OUR GREATEST INTEREST WAS THE VALUE OF OUR HOME WITHIN THE CURRENT MARKET CONDITIONS. CINDY PRESENTED US WITH A THOUGHTFUL ANALYSIS TO JUSTIFY AND SUPPORT HER RECOMMENDED ASKING PRICE FOR THE SALE OF OUR HOME. HER RATIONALE WAS SO COMPELLING THAT WE ACCEPTED HER NUMBER EVEN THOUGH WE WERE HOPING FOR A HIGHER PRICE. AS IT TURNED OUT CINDY BELINE’S ASKING PRICE WAS THE MOST ACCURATE. NOT ONLY DOES CINDY REALLY KNOW THE RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE MARKET, SHE REALLY KNOWS HOW TO MAKE THE PROCESS OF SELLING AND BUYING A HOME ENJOYABLE AND EVEN A FUN EXPERIENCE. CINDY NEGOTIATED THE MOST FAVORABLE TERMS FOR US ON BOTH OUR SELLING AND BUYING…WE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! WHENEVER WE HIT A SNAG OR PROBLEM SHE ALWAYS HELPED US TO SEE IT IN A POSITIVE LIGHT, ESPECIALLY DURING OUR ONE YEAR OF SEARCHING FOR THE “RIGHT” HOME FOR US. WHEN WE WERE DOWN, SHE BROUGHT US UP. WHEN WE THOUGHT WE WOULD NEVER FIND WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR IN A NEW HOME, SHE CONTINUALLY GAVE US HOPE AND ENTHUSIASM. IT CAME TO BE THAT WE LOOKED FORWARD TO OUR HOUSE HUNTING WITH CINDY BELINE AS OUR TRUSTED GUIDE. WHEN WE SOLD OUR CURRENT RESIDENCE AND FOUND OUR NEW HOME CINDY BELINE GUIDED US THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE CLOSING PROCESS. CINDY EVEN HELPED US SELECT A MOVING COMPANY. CINDY WAS WITH US AT EVERY STEP OF OUR JOURNEY. SHE WAS VERY COMFORTING AND REASSURING. SHE WAS THOUGHT OF AS PART OF THE FAMILY -- A CREDIT TO HER KIND, GENTLE AND SUPPORTIVE NATURE. SHE DID ALL SHE COULD AND MORE TO KEEP US SATISFIED AND FOCUSED THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS. I WILL END MY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE WITH CINDY BELINE THE WAY I BEGAN: CINDY BELINE IS ONE INCREDIBLE REAL ESTATE AGENT BECAUSE SHE IS ONE INCREDIBLE HUMAN BEING! WE HEARTILY RECOMMEND HER!
You made the process so easy and I am very appreciative. I look forward to having you...over soon to see my changes." Megan
She is super responsive and dedicated a lot of time to help me sell my house. She knows the real estate process very well. I've used other realtors in the past and Stephanie is the best! (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
Not only did she handle the myriad details of that but she guided me through the purchase of another home at the same time--all while I was out of the country. She was diligent, honest, and a true representative of my best interests.
We will not use anyone else. Her detailed local knowledge of the area allows her to answer all of your questions. She is on time, organized, responsive and constructive. Cindy helps you refine the process by asking you thoughtful questions that clarify what's really important to you. She especially shines once you decide you want a particular property. We found her to be an invaluable resource when it came to pricing and finding options that create a win-win for everyone involved. Lastly, she's a smart, funny and a pleasure to be with. If you hire Cindy you will not be disappointed.
Having never owned before, I had a lot of questions throughout the process. Stephanie ensured that everything went smoothly. She took the time to fully understand our wants and needs, and was very responsive, helpful, and professional during the entire process. We highly recommend! (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
She was recommended by a colleague, and we were very happy with our experience with her. She is extremely energetic, and gives the impression that she loves what she does. Cindy listened to my initial ideas of the criteria we were looking for in a house, and once we started viewing houses she quickly picked up on what types of details my husband and I really liked and really disliked. She asked questions to clarify what type of compromises we might be willing to make, and when there were houses that seemed like good matches that we eliminated from our list, she asked additional questions in order to understand what the deal breakers were for us. She was very willing to point out potential issues and concerns in the houses we looked at - she was down on her hands and knees checking for damp, testing wood for rot, examining carpets, and looking at details of construction (like the type of cabinets and drawers in the kitchen). This honesty and engagement in the process is one of the things that we most valued about working with Cindy - we felt that if there was a big issue with a property, she would be sure to point it out to us. We absolutely felt that we could trust her to be our advocate at every step of the process. We were coming from out of town to look at houses, and Cindy spent one long Sunday and holiday Monday and another Sunday looking at houses with us. She worked really hard to arrange viewings at short notice and to fit the viewings into our constrained schedule. When we were ready to make an offer, she continued to work long hours to get the offer submitted quickly. She guided us in deciding how much to offer, and when the sellers responded and we were ready just to accept their counter, she pushed us to submit our own counter offer, which paid off, getting us a price that was much closer to our original target than we would have achieved without Cindy's help. After the inspection, Cindy helped us to put together and justify our request for a credit from the sellers to pay for needed repairs, and from there on out she checked in regularly up until the closing date. She, again, went out of her way to work with our travel schedule when we were arriving in town for the walk-through and closing, and after closing she checked in again a time or two to make sure everything was OK. I would certainly feel comfortable contacting her as a resource if any problems come up during our first few months in the house, and she has even offered advice as we prepare our old house for sale. We would definitely work with her again to buy or sell in the DC area.
She worked so hard to find us the perfect home. I'm the type of person who has a hard time making up my mind, so I was sure I had to be driving her crazy! But if so, she never showed it! She's patient, professional, honest, and makes you feel like you're "working" with a real friend. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. (from Zillow https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
We had a difficult experience here so it was nice to have an experienced, reliable professional such as yourself to help us on our sale....if we do return to the area we'll be sure to contact you!
! Cannot thank my realtor Kim Sharifi enough for being so amazing !!
If you want a super competent and honest person who will go to bat for you in all aspects of buying and/or selling a property, Cindy is the agent for you! Description of work: Cindy has helped us with four real estate transactions.
Not only do I appreciate your professionalism but they do as well. Buying and selling a home is a lot of work and an emotional time because as we know it is a long term commitment and one to be taken seriously. I am so grateful you take the time to educate them, allowing them to understand the entire process which is so important to all involved in the purchase or sell of their home. I am grateful for you and your knowledge as well as your continuing professionalism no matter how difficult a transaction can be due to constant changes in the market and the NVAR contract. Thank you Pat
We had a wonderful opportunity to move and had to sell our house, a first for me. Cindy was with me the whole time, walking me through the process and help guiding me on how to best promote our property. Not only was she able to get us an incredible deal, she helped sell the property over the first few days. Her responsiveness to any question was immediate and she definitely worked hard for us. Would recommend 100% every time someone asked.
She never skipped a beat, addressing the questions and concerns I had. (from Zillow: https://www.zillow.com/profile/StephIsYourRealtor/#reviews)
