Doris Leadbetter & Associates helped my wife and I rent out our townhouse located in Fairfax, Va. They helped us prepare our home for rent and walked us through the steps we needed to take in order to get top dollar. Doris marketed our property and helped us get the amount we asked for. She made the process easy for my wife and I. We highly recommend Doris Leadbetter & Associates!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Oakton, VA.
Primary point of contact: Jennifer Watson

An associate of Doris, Ms. Jennifer Watson, helped us buy our home. It is the first house we own, and we have very limited knowledge regarding buying a home. Jennifer led us through the whole procedure. She showed us quite a lot houses/condos, and she is very patient. Her schedule is flexible and we were able to visit homes after work and in the weekend. For each home, Jennifer prepares detailed information, and, because she is very familiar with the area, she always gives us useful advises on the home location, convenience, etc. She also takes care of the documents and helps us understand the terms in them. Really nice professional to work with, and I would recommend her to my friend.

What a great experience we had! We felt like we were taken care of very well. We got a great deal of help with all the paper work and different aspects of purchasing real estate. We would highly recommend Doris Leadbetter's office for homebuyers.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Ballston-Virginia Square, Arlington, VA.
Primary point of contact: Jenny Watson

In my experience with Doris and her daughter Jenny were very smart and professional in negotiating my condo purchase. They advised me on what things to ask about and what not to worry about, and any time I was obviously worried about something they would take action to alleviate my stress, whether it was getting something checked out, asking for compensation from the seller, or finding a place to live during a 10 day transition period. (Assuring me that they wouldn't let me be homeless while my contract was closing.) I mostly interacted with Jenny, and she was very professional and courteous, always patiently and promptly getting back to my many (many) questions and she was very reassuring in all of her guidance providing hard facts, reports, and experience in all of her advice, and also asking other professionals at her firm for more information when necessary. They also brought in trustworthy partners I could work with, and made sure I knew I had the option to look elsewhere. I was very happy with their recommendations for my Lender and Inspection. My Lender Justin Neal at Suntrust, got me a rate 1% lower than another lender another real estate agent recommended. I also, shopped around and this is the lowest rate I could find. And the man contracted for my inspection Gary, was so helpful, giving me tips about my condo and explaining why things were and weren't built correctly. After working with all of these professionals, I felt much safer in making this large life purchase. I tried working with some other professionals and I felt Doris's team gave me the time, guidance, and professionalism I needed more than any others I tried working with. I will definitely look to work with them for my next home!

Bought a home in 2014 in Centre Heights, Centreville, VA 20120.
Primary point of contact: Jennifer Watson

A friend recommended Jennifer (Jenny) Watson to us (a realtor with Doris Leadbetter). My husband, daughter, large dog, and I were relocating to Virginia from Pennsylvania for work.

Having no prior knowledge of the area, Jenny was our guide. She was great at communicating with us through phone class and emails. She took all of the information we gave her- where our jobs were, what kind of neighborhood we wanted, and expectations for our new home. She found great contenders to show us in several different areas.

Jenny dedicated a full four-day weekend to working with us. We saw seventeen houses in two days, followed by two days of paperwork. She was knowledgeable, kind, and didn’t bat an eye at our wiggly toddler-in-tow. Even after returning to Pennsylvania, Jenny stood in for us at our home inspection because we couldn’t come back down in time.

Throughout the whole experience Jenny made us feel comfortable, offered her advice, and gave us the space to choose what was best for our family. After finding our new home, we saw Jenny as more of a friend than a relator. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase and we give all of the credit to Jenny Watson.

Sold a home in 2008 in Herndon Junction, Herndon, VA 20170.

Doris came to my resue in 2008 when I wanted to sell my condo. It was not an easy process getting it sold when there were so many condo's on the market. Doris and team were instrumental in providing advice on how we could make the condo more appealing and getting it sold. I can't thank Doris and team enough for all the help and patience selling my property. Thank you!

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $450K in Sterling, VA.

Doris' market expertise and negotiation skills are the key reason that my family has the wonderful home that we do. We are so lucky to have a great agent and a friend. Throughout the buying process Doris was very honest about what type of home and location that we should consider. She wanted us to have the best home for the value and not compromise. I was a first time home owner and Doris was patient and gave me all the information I needed to be comfortable. When all our chips were down, Doris delivered. Her #1 priority was to get us in the best home in a great neighborhood for our family. Thank you to Doris and team!

Thanks again Doris.

Sold a home in 2007 in Ricardo, Kingsville, TX 78363.

Our experience with Mrs. Leadbetter: THE BEST!!!! She has a huge network to work with. She has many years of experience. She knows how to prepare a home for sale, how to price it for sale, how to show a home, and how to close on a deal. Our experience with Doris was 110% satisfaction. Throughout the period the house was on the market she stayed in touch with us, gave us ample time to prepare for showings and provided sound advice on contracts that were presented to us. If I still lived in her area and had a home, I would not hesitate to ask her to list it for us.
