Ava is VERY knowledgeable about the market, staging, brings great experience to the table, knows the experts to call to make your home ready for sale (painting, staging, cleaning etc.). When you work with Ava, you know she is honest, caring and wants to help you succeed in selling your home for a fair price.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Bristow, VA.
Ava, helped us in buying our first home. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area we were looking in and explained pros and cons of each neighborhood in detail to help us narrow our decision. Schooling was a critical issue and she showed us houses that match our needs.
She helped us navigate the process from choosing the right home to closing and was on top of things the entire time. She responded to our questions and issues promptly and was available for us to contact any time of the day.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Sterling, VA.
We had a wonderful first-time home buying experience. Ava walked us through the entire process from the mortgage pre-approval to getting the house keys at settlement. With her recommendations on new property listings, hot neighborhoods, and quality home improvement subcontractors, we felt like we were always in the best position to make an offer when the opportunity came up. Our conversations were always pleasant, and her honest opinions kept our home search realistically focused. The combination of Ava's insight on the real estate market and her understanding of what we wanted in a home were invaluable to us. We will definitely return when it's time to upgrade.
Ava did a great job for our family both as our buying agent and selling agent. She guided us through prepping our house for sale, sharing what updates would get the best returns and which ones weren't worth the money. Our house was staged, marketed and sold quickly.
When looking for a new house, Ava's knowledge of the local area helped us narrow down target areas that met our must have list. She was responsive when we asked to see houses getting us there as soon as possible knowing that good ones disappear off the market quickly! She helped us negotiated and get us the house we wanted in a competitive bid environment. But she didn't stop there! She guided us all the way through close of both properties ensuring that we didn't miss a step and everything went smoothly.
The icing on the cake was Ava's patience as we did all of this with 2 small kids. My kids consider her family! I would highly recommend Ava as an agent!

Homebuying can be quite daunting and stressful, especially if you've never done it before.Thankfully, we worked with Ava to find our first home. She made the whole process go as smoothly as possible for us. She really listened to what we wanted while also offering valuable, thoughtful advice based on her experiences and extensive knowledge. And in the end, we ended up with the house of our dreams, at a price that was within our budget.
As first-time homebuyers, we wanted a home that was affordable and attractive while being in a safe community. Ava gave us lists of only the most promising and best matches for us on the market. It was important to us that she kept our needs in mind.
She also helped us to have more realistic expectations. If you've ever watched one of those HGTV shows, you'll see real estate agents who either want to move mountains for their clients or want to find the best fit within the buyers' means. Ava is the latter. She didn't promise miracles, but she did work to find us a house that met our criteria, that we could afford.
Another great thing about working with Ava is that she is incredibly well-connected. She knows all sorts of experts--from contractors to home inspectors. She referred us to a fantastic home inspector who was very thorough. This responsible vendor identified problems with a house that we almost bought (thank goodness!), and he noticed a few things that the seller of our current home needed to fix for us before we moved in.
Ava's responsiveness and thoroughness are exemplary. She constantly e-mailed us updates and other information. She checked our forms carefully to make sure we didn't miss anything. She followed up with other agents or sellers on our behalf, and made sure we didn't lose out on any good opportunities.
Lastly, Ava also thinks outside the box. She found a few places that didn't fit our desired home to the tee, but she thought were still worth checking out. Of those atypical picks, we actually liked a few of them, though we weren't able to buy any of those for reasons outside of Ava's control. Besides being knowledgeable, I think it's important for realtors to be creative and good at problem solving. Flexibility on the buyers' and realtor's end is also equally important.
We had a great experience working with her, and would highly recommend Ava whether you're an inexperienced or seasoned homebuyer.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Leesburg, VA.
We bought a home with Ava's help last August and this review is long overdue, since she provided an exemplary service and the least I could do was write a review. She was very helpful and patient in our search. She was always smiling and upbeat. I never felt like she pushed us into anything we did not feel comfortable with. She would always give us our options and patiently wait for what we decided to do. My 5 year old daughter absolutely loved her and still talks about Ava with great affection. Even though we bought a home a while ago, we have reached out to Ava on several occasions and she would promptly respond with all the answers pertaining to the questions asked about the house. I am very pleased with her services and would definitely recommend her as your real estate agent.
Ava is fantastic -- smart, savvy, detail-oriented, and patient. She really is on top of things, and has navigated me through the all the trials and tribulations of finding a place. I really didn't know what I wanted, or what was reasonable at first, and Ava guided me through the process. She sent me e-mails several times a day showing various listings, and went out with me to visit the places. When talking with other realtors, she was a complete advocate for me. When we did the walk-through, she was incredibly thorough, taking pictures of everything to document the current condition of the place. She put together all of the documentation, walking me through everything. And followed up with it all. It was really a relief to know that I had someone there working for me, advocating, pointing out things you just don't know about unless you're familiar with the process. Not to mention someone who's honest, pleasant, and funny. That really helps when you are going through a stressful process. And did I say that she's detail-oriented? She's still texting me making things are followed-up on! So, with Ava's help, I found a great place, at a great price, and I couldn't have done it without her. I don't usually gush like this, but I would absolutely recommend Ava to anyone.
