 Jan and Steve operate as a team to make sure that you receive complete care as well as different points of view. Two opinions from people who want the same result for you. Satisfaction. (Most of the time we agree)

If you are planning on buying a home in Northern Virginia, we practice real estate consumer advocacy. Having us serve you as a buyer''s agent is much like having your own attorney - someone who is looking out for YOUR interests as a buyer, not pushing any particular property but working to get you the best home at the most favorable price and terms. Home sellers have a listing (seller''s) agent helping them on the sales side and their fiduciary responsibility is to the seller not you. Get a buyer''s agent...there is no fee to you (at least that is our policy). Seller''s pay all Realtor''s fees unless otherwise negotiated.

Buying is not always the best choice. Renting can be a better option depending on your circumstances. We feel strongly, that given the market conditions here over the last 4 years, you should be able to safely commit to any home you purchase for 4-5 years. The days of rapid appreciation in Northern Virginia are long gone and you need time to build up a sufficient price gain so that you can sell in the future without a net loss after your sales expenses.

Our Goals

When it''s all over, when the papers are all signed for the purchase of your new home or the sale of your old one, we want every client of ours to be able to say "Jan & Steve Bachman did what they said they would do. They had a detailed plan of action. They set a schedule and kept it. They thought of everything. They took care of all the details of the transaction so that I didn''t have to." That is a high standard. That is what we work toward. We offer honest, open representation.



Tough Negotiation: We will provide tough negotiation on your behalf. Your interests come first. If a deal is not right for you, we will tell you to walk away. We don''t care about making a sale; we care about making a client for life. We negotiate for you as if we were negotiating for ourselves.

Communication: We keep you informed every step of the way.

Attention to Detail: A real estate transaction has a thousand details. We take care of them so you can get on with your life. We have associated ourselves with the best real estate professionals. Our attorney is a second generation Fairfax settlement lawyer. We use four of the areas best lenders; if they can''t find a good loan, it doesn''t exist. Our real estate company, RE/MAX, has enormous resources world-wide and it stands firmly on your side.

Stress reduction: We are moderately good humored people whose goal is to make every transaction as enjoyable as possible. Buying or selling a home can be a stressful event. We try to make the sale as profitable, smooth and worry free as possible for you.

Jan is a member of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors (NVAR) Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club 2008 and NVAR Top Producer 2008.

Team reviews

Highly recommended! I used them after a friend had a similarly positive experience, and they didn't disappoint. Energetic and flexible - they showed my fiancé and me 30 properties in one day because we were on a tight schedule. Never exerted unwanted pressure, always ready to point out positive and negative aspects they saw in a property and the surrounding area. We ended up with a winning unit right in our price range. Jan and Steve were a pleasure to work with!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Clifton, VA.

Professional, detailed oriented, very responsive, and extraordinarily competent. They led us through the entire process, from the sale of our house and all the stressful issues that brings, to helping us purchase a new home and counseling us on the nuances of dealing with the builder. All their suggestions and recommendations were spot on.

You can't do better that having Jan and Steve Bachman represent you!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Herndon, VA.

Jan and Steve have helped us through two home purchase transactions and we've been very satisfied with the process and the net results. They are very tech-savvy and extremely responsive. Their network of lenders, legal professionals, and home contractors is also very reliable. These factors really matter in a competitive market or complex deals. Furthermore, they are great company and we enjoy visiting properties with them. They are passionate about what they do and we're happy to recommended them time and again.  More Less
