Jane, we cannot thank you enough for your assistance and stewardship in selling our home. The circumstances were challenging and stressful, but your equanimity was a port in a storm.  More importantly, it was obvious to us from the beginning that you had in-depth market knowledge that served us well. I, especially, appreciate the time and ready answers you always provided when I was ready to spin.  Thank you, Thank you!

The serendipity of life brought Jane to me through close friends (unbeknownst to us at first). But her character, hard working attitude, and excellent deal-making instincts will keep her in my forever ‘rolodex.’ I can honestly say I would not own the house I dearly love if she had not been involved. She took on so much for me and kept the deal alive through many challenges which could have been deal killers.

Jane is wonderful to work with, always cheerful and calm under pressure! She helped guide us through the entire process and made sure our interests were protected. She is generous with her time and expertise and also has a great list of vendors to help out if needed.

“Geva truly helped us find our dream home. And she was able to quickly sell our first home!! She understood the local neighborhood and how to best maneuver the market. She was always available to talk no matter the day or time. And she made the process as simple as possible for us to understand. She seemed to truly care as much as we did.”

Shona and Chris

I met with a number of realtors before hiring Jane to help list my home in Arlington, and I chose her because she was thorough in her research and aggressive with her marketing plans.  It turned out to be the best decision ever.  Jane was consistent in her focus to maximize potential buyers, keep the market momentum with my property, and represent the property and its full value.  I had a very well qualified contract in just 3 weeks! Thank you, Jane!

House buying is stressful and in a fast moving market you want a realtor that really knows the area.  Geva was that realtor for us.  She’s lived in the area for years. She knows everyone and is an active member of the community.  She really helped us navigate the house buying process the whole way.  The information she provided was invaluable for our decision.  She works with different brokers that specialize in various kinds of services, such as VA loans, which means you get the best loan service available. After you buy the house she has a list of recommended people who can provide services for any changes you might want to make. She really helped reduce the overall stress of the process by being so knowledgable and able to answer or find the answer to any questions we had.

[F]rom my standpoint it was a very positive real estate experience. I had the utmost trust and confidence in Jane and she did not let me down! Jane had resources for everything that we needed in connection with getting our house ready to sell and making it happen, so having a one-stop-shop made the whole thing much less stressful and was much appreciated! I would definitely recommend you all in the future!

[We wanted] to show our gratitude for all the help you’ve given us during this home buying process…We wanted to say thank you so much for your insight, [Jane]. Without you, we likely wouldn’t have been able to get our dream home, especially at the price we did! Thank you for connecting us to Jawad and his team as well. This process has been so quick, from putting in the offer to closing in three weeks (around the holidays, no less), and we couldn’t have done it without both of your teams. We are so excited to start our next chapter in our new home! Thanks again for everything[.]

Personal touch was premium for me. Knowing I could contact Jane anytime was very important. Her knowledge of the process and industry greatly relieved my stress. I appreciated that she understood the importance of wearing my shoes and always tried to be one step ahead of me.
Geva sells! Geva was very patient as we navigated such a personal decision but we were confident that she would help us sell our house and find our dream home! Geva is a real estate agent like no other, I could trust her with the entire complicated process. She was able to deftly navigate us through preparing our house for market AND finding another one at the same time. Not only did she represent our interests in all aspects of the negotiations of the house sale, she was able to coordinate the sale to happen BEFORE our purchase closing! She has the best lender, who helped us navigate the complex process, it was a huge relief. If you want your house sale and/or hunting to be smooth and as stress-free as possible, Geva is your go-to agent who will help sell and buy your dream house!

We highly recommend Jane. She worked tirelessly to get our house sold. She responded to our calls, held open house, made great brochures, followed up on leads, kept us informed of feedback, networked with other realtors. You will not go wrong with Jane as your realtor.

Quinn & Celia

She is NOT your average Jane. This is the 6th home I have been on the selling side of and it had by far the most unexpected challenges. Jane handled them with professional grace. I truly believe that our family was able to attain the best possible market value because of Jane’s efforts. She is the real deal.

Debbie V

Geva was a pleasure to work with. She answered all of our questions promptly, was easy to get ahold of, was very honest, and fun to work with! I would highly recommend her and would use her again in the future. I am happy we know her and look forward to keeping in touch with her! I am trying to get the Know Arlington YouTube site up, but am having trouble doing that. It allows me to only have a site as ME. If you are more knowledgeable, I welcome all assistance, thoughts or will pay somebody to do it right for us. Let me know!

Kristen and Keith

Jane was a delight to work with and made selling our home of many years a great experience.  She is extremely familiar with the community, the great schools, and the Arlington vibe. Jane was always available to answer any questions or provide advice throughout the home sale process. We are so glad we chose Jane and would recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home.

I met with Geva Lester on the recommendation of a friend after a pathetic experience with a previous realtor trying to sell my 1-br/1-ba condo in Arlington. Geva assessed the problems with the previous listing and made recommendations on what to do with a re-listing. I signed with Geva and followed her recommendations for the re-listing which included staging the property and dropping my price (since I had wasted 2 months with the previous realtor the current market unfortunately necessitated the price drop). Geva listed the property with gorgeous photos and a video showcasing the unit to its fullest benefit. The property went back on the market on a Friday and I had a full price offer the next day. I closed 4 weeks later. I wholeheartedly recommend Geva Lester as a realtor. Her knowledge, experience, and tech savvy all worked together to sell my property quickly. I wish I had signed with her in the first place but am extremely happy I did so in the end.

Rachel

“Geva Lester was amazing! We were searching for an agent and met Geva at an open house. Serendipity! Geva discovered our house, we paid list (not a penny more), negotiated us through some odd requests in the weeks leading up to closing and referred us to a carpenter and a plumber that are now part of our trusted circle of contractors. Can’t say enough good things about Geva.”

Michael and Maura

“I am a first-time home buyer and Geva is the reason I am currently the proud owner of a single-family home in Arlington. I met with Geva as I began to explore the idea of home ownership, and she walked me through some of the market and financial considerations for a first-time buyer. She was very patient with me emailing her every day with some new place I “discovered,” and willing to visit places so I could learn what I didn’t want. She also helped me on the journey from looking at condos to seeing what I could afford if I bought a home with no HOA. I didn’t have a lot of cash up front, so she negotiated closing costs from the seller, as well as money for repairs coming out of inspection. I went from renting a 930-square-foot condo to owning a 1500-square-foot three bedroom, with a basement full of possibility. My son loves his new room and yard, and I love the proximity to his school and baseball fields. I cannot recommend Geva highly enough!”

Ruth

“Thank you so much for the fantastic work you did with the sale of our home in Arlington. Upon receiving short notice military orders requiring us to move in just 7 weeks, you immediately sprang into action with a dedicated focus on helping us stage, list, and close the deal. Your ability to coordinate all aspects of selling our house – for 10% over our list price, is nothing short of superb! “Geva Sells” says it all!”

“We purchased our NOVA house with Geva. She did an excellent job of helping us understand the total value of the home, the walking neighborhood and the associated life style that came with it. Geva’s passion and enthusiasm for her work is infectious. We would recommend Geva to anyone!”

Charlie & Christina

“Geva — I can’t thank you enough for all your help in selling my townhouse in Alexandria. From our first conversation to our post-closing celebration, you were insightful, practical, sensitive to my needs, supremely professional, and a joy to work with. I don’t know what I would have done without you! As soon as you learned that I wanted to sell my home, you found someone to come and advise me on what to fix and how to prepare it to sell “well”. Not only that, you found contractors to do the needed work quickly at a very reasonable rate. And, you orchestrated the process so it all worked around the things I was able to fix myself, as well as my schedule for getting stuff done. Everyone you personally recommended was spot-on for the job. Because of your wisdom and great advice, we were able to get my home under contract after just eleven days on the market, and I got my asking price! You oversaw the repairs and upgrades the buyer requested so everyone was happy with the result. Then, when something needed to be done at the last minute before closing, you handled everything beautifully on my behalf. I felt completely at ease putting my home, and the entire sales process, in your competent hands. You really minimized my stress at what could have been a very difficult time and I simply can’t thank you enough. I recommend you without hesitation to all my friends and relatives! “

Melissa

Geva was also proactive in helping us find a place. When she saw the listing for our new house, she knew it met our criteria, got us in to see it, and we had an offer in before the open house. She helped us put together a strong offer in a multiple offer situation while staying within a reasonable range. Perhaps most importantly, she provided a balanced perspective during negotiations and helped keep my wife and I grounded and focused so that we got the house we wanted at a price we were comfortable with. Thanks Geva!

Joe and Renelle

I can’t recommend Geva Lester enough. After interviewing a number of agents, I decided to use Geva to sell my home. She exceeded my expectations in every possible way, going way above and beyond what was necessary. Geva gave me excellent advice to prepare the house for sale. I followed her recommendations and I was able to sell my home quickly and for a good price. Geva is professional, resourceful, knowledgeable, and made maximum use of today’s technology. Her advice and negotiation skills were valuable throughout the process. If you’re looking for an agent who is fully committed to getting you the best offer possible in a timely manner with a minimum amount of stress, you must hire Geva. She is absolutely the best realtor I have worked with.

Geva is extremely knowledgeable about the Northern Virginia area and was full of ideas about how to meet our needs. She also helped immensely in the negotiations, knowing what mattered to the seller. She provided a good set of resources to help us with the move as well.
