I worked with Jane (realtor) and Beth (transaction coordinator) to buy my townhouse and both were phenomenal. I was a first-time buyer and Jane and her team provided an incredible amount of support and knowledge sharing to help me through the process. They were super responsive, patient with infinite questions, kept me on task, and walked me through steps ranging from inspection to making sure I was contacting my utilities and getting them transferred to my name, to getting my two cats pre-approved by the HOA in just a few hours! Jane made this very major life decision feel like smooth sailing. I felt well supported and in good hands throughout. Jane provided so much advice, was not pushy at all, responded so fast, and checked in throughout.
On top of that, Jane helped me get my new home in less than asking/what I was planning on offering (without waiving my inspection, to boot!) through some clever deal structuring. I absolutely recommend Jane and her team to anyone.
Geva was simply amazing, and we couldn’t recommend her more! We had a very narrow window to buy a house in a seller’s market due to being across the country. Geva quickly and expertly lined up a variety of options for us to pursue, linking us up with a great local lender, and then through this process, and not just a facilitator. We constantly looked to her for advice on the market, thoughts on each property, and it would fit our family and what it would look like as an investment. Her counsel was extremely valuable in that it was pragmatic, realistic, and challenges us to stow our emotions, and be objective; not an easy task when you’re a buyer in a rampant sellers’ market on a short timeline. If you’re looking for a realtor with expertise, honest feedback, and active participation in the home buying process, Geva’s an absolute powerhouse of a realtor and the one for you. We are lucky to have had her in our corner in this market.
Great experience. Geva was very knowledgeable about the whole process and worked very closely with me to find a great house that had exactly the features I was looking for. She made the process fun and easy.
EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERY WAY!
If I could give Geva 10 stars, I would do so! I worked with Geva for both the sale of my current home and the purchase of a new home. Geva was extremely knowledgeable, responsive, patient and provided great service. I hope to work with Geva again and will certainly recommend her to my family and friends.
It was a pleasure having Jane as our realtor. She guided us through the whole process and her connections and experience gave us full confidence that we would be able to sell at the right market price and conditions. And we did! Thank you, Jane!
I recently worked with Geva to purchase a home in North Arlington and cannot recommend her highly enough. In the extremely tight market, buyers need every advantage possible to be successful. Geva’s knowledge of the market, insight into the process, and creativity in formulating our offer provided us that advantage. I can honestly say that without Geva’s guidance, we would not have been able to submit a winning offer for what was our dream home. Thank you, Geva.
I really appreciated Geva’s advice and recommendations. We feel that our reliance on her expertise resulted in our property selling above asking. We also really appreciate her responsiveness. The selling and buying process with Geva exceeded all expectations. I plan to use Geva for my future real estate transactions and would highly recommend her to my friends and family.
You can’t improve perfection. What I liked most about the transaction is that Jane answers questions promptly and keeps her client informed. Jane goes out of her way to be helpful. She is an excellent agent and a genuinely nice person.
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.
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.
Jane is simply amazing. She will work hard to help you. She is very knowledgeable about the DC Metro area. She knows where the good pockets of schools were. She was very patient with us while we looked for houses. We loved working with her and we will again in the future!
From 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!
Geva was really calm and professional. We never felt any pressure. It was clear to us that she had our best interest in mind. …We thought she did a great job.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
