Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Thalia, Virginia Beach, VA.
As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect. We were so thankful for all the help noticing the little things and asking questions we would have never thought to ask. We are so happy to have found our new little place in the world and are proud to call it ours all thanks to Liz.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Chesapeake Beach, Virginia Beach, VA.
My husband and I worked with Liz and her associates during the purchase of our new home and could not have been happier. We were planning on trying to rent our condo on our own, and were not having much success. We enlisted the help of Liz and within one week we had a tenant for our condo. She is ultimately professional, responsible, and great at her job, and such a pleasure to work with. We miss her now that we have bought a new home and rented our old!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Salem, Virginia Beach, VA.
Since 2007, we have worked with Liz on several occasions, including buying our first and second homes and finding tenants for our rental property.
Liz took the time to listen to our “wish list’ and had a true interest in helping us find the right home for us. She was responsive and persistent as we searched for our ideal home to fit our family. Liz never made us feel like any of the 100s of questions we asked were insignificant or silly and was great at responding to texts and phone calls – no matter what time of the day (or night).
Liz is very flexible and along with her team, it was easy for us to coordinate going to showings – no long waiting periods or a whole lot of back and forth.
Once we found “our home,” she took care of all the details including the paperwork, making sure all of our inspections were completed by competent individuals and talking us through the legal and real estate jargon.
Even after we purchased our home(s), her professionalism and interest in our satisfaction continued. She made it easy and comfortable for us to contact her with questions.
I would highly recommend Liz to anyone who is searching for a new home or looking to sell!
Barbara was a very caring, honest, and knowledgeable agent. Barbara made my wife and I feel comfortable with pursuit of finding and purcahsing a home. She was very helpful and informative giving professional guidance and insight into the housing market. There needs to be more Barbara's in the industry that have the best interests of the buyer and seller. With her personality and vast knowledge she will continue to be prosperous, bring lots of smiles to other families.
Barbara was very helpful, patient, and encouraging to us. this was our first home purchase and I was quite nervous about making the plunge into home ownership. Barbara offered her time to educate us on the different areas of the city, talked to us about what we were looking for in a home, and sent us emails of homes that she thought might be of interest. She helped us find all the necessary people to make the purchase as smooth as possible, with several local businesses and contacts. I have already recommended her to a family member and would also do the same to other's interested in purchasing a home.
Barbara is very familiar with Virginia Beach and the surrounding areas. She was able to direct us to any additional information (schools, areas of interest, mortgage brokers, etc.) that we needed in order to purchase our home. Barbara stayed in our price point (the first time this has happened for us when buying) and found lots of listing to share with us. She is extremely prompt and was helpful in negotiating in a tough market. I would highly recommend working with Barbara when buying or selling!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Princess Anne, Virginia Beach, VA.
Liz was wonderful to work with. We were impressed throughout the whole process. We chose to use Liz based on her positive reviews and after seeing her website. From the start, Liz was easily reachable and was always quick to respond. We found a home much sooner than expected, but Liz never pushed us into buying. She helped us buy a foreclosure property and was able to negotiate the price for us. She always made us feel comfortable. We have nothing but good things to say about Liz and the home buying experience. We would definitely recommend her!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Princess Anne, Virginia Beach, VA.
I purchased my first home with Liz's help. The entire process took about a year from our first consultation until I had the keys in my hand. One thing I remember most during that year is when I told Liz I needed to stop looking at houses for a while so I could work on saving more money and not rush things. It's daunting to consider telling your agent that, especially after how much time they (Liz) pour into answering questions and touring homes. Instead, Liz was very gracious and patient and encouraged me to do what I felt was best without pressuring me into anything and she said she would be there when I was comfortable to begin looking again. And she was. Even through her pregnancy, with the awesome help of her colleague Barbara Terranova, I was able to see homes right away. To be honest, it was a very overwhelming process for a first time home buyer. Liz's experience and attitude was valuable beyond measure and she continues to offer her advice and answer our questions well after we closed. This house is a blessing from God and we are so thankful for having Liz as our agent.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Greenbrier West, Chesapeake, VA.
We had a wonderful experience working with Liz! We were relocating to the area from the Midwest and we really needed to rely on Liz to give us input about the different neighborhoods, commuting times, etc. She has valuable knowledge about the area and was great to work with! I feel that she worked hard to get us the best deal possible. She was always reachable and in communication with us, which really helped put our minds at ease throughout this whole process. I would highly recommend working with Liz and would not hesitate to work with her again in the future!
