Ratings & Reviews

Bonnie helped us quickly find a great house and made the process very smooth. As first-time homebuyers, we had many questions, often late at night, and she was always very responsive to our emails and calls and had helpful answers. She also gave us great recommendations for services and movers along the way. Thanks for all of your help, Bonnie!

Bought a home in 2014 in Old Town, Alexandria, VA 22314.

My husband and I worked with Bonnie for over 3 years trying to find our dream home. She was so very patient with us in our search. We are not from the area and needed a lot more help narrowing down locations. Bonnie was extremely professional and easy to work with. Her knowledge regarding the area and the housing market was quite beneficial to us. We recommend her to any and everyone we know who is looking for a realtor.

Bought a home in 2014 in Potomac West, Alexandria, VA 22305.

We met Bonnie at an open house. She stayed 40 mins after it had ended and answered all of our questions and talked to us about the neighborhood and schools. She gave us more info in those 40 minutes than we had gotten working with a different realtor for 2 years! Two weeks later we signed Bonnie as our realtor. After our first sit down we told her what we were looking for and she suggested a house that was about to come on the market. She has excellent instincts -- the house was exactly what we wanted and we were under contract within a week. Throughout the closing process Bonnie was always accessible 24/7 via text, email or phone and would respond immediately. As first time buyers she walked us through every step and always had helpful suggestions/advice. Really happy with her work and highly recommend her to others.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in North Ridge-Rosemont, Alexandria, VA.

Bonnie was referred to our family as an experienced realtor who was familiar with the neighborhood and market in our area. It was very easy to work with someone who had those qualifications but who also was able to talk to us about marketing options and timing and who clearly understood our mixed feelings about selling a childhood home that had been in the family for over 60 years. Her suggestions for paint colors and things to improve to make the house more marketable were focused and turned out to be perfect. We had several offers before even marketing the property and closing went without a hitch within a month of being ready to sell.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Alexandria, VA.

Bonnie was simply awesome. I was selling an older home that had been a rental for many years, and needed lots of upgrading. She walked around the house and helped me decide which repairs were necessary and which were luxuries. She was even willing to find contractors, meet them at the house, and help me pick out materials. In the end she found a buyer who wanted "as is" and so I didn't have to do any of the repair work, and my net profits were the same as if I had gone through all of the headache and time associated with renovating. What a great deal! I would highly recommend Bonnie as a responsive, creative, easy to work with realtor. She is the best!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Northeast, Alexandria, VA.

Bonnie did an excellent job throughout our entire home purchasing process. She was very respectful as we took our time searching for the right property. Bonnie's Insight and knowledge of the local market proved to be invaluable throughout our successful negotiation. From beginning to end this was the most stress free home buying experience thanks to Bonnie, and I would highly recommend her to any of my friends looking to purchase a home in this highly competitive housing market.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Alexandria, VA.

The process started 2 years prior to the house going on the market. Bonnie gave us excellent advise on how to prep the house to make it most presentable. She followed up through the two years and once we said "GO" she was right on top of it. Listing it immediatly, the photo shoot, the staging, the video, the open houses, and it sold immediatly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Old Town, Alexandria, VA.

I discovered Ms. Rivkin on Zillow and asked her to represent us in the purchase of our first home based upon her uniformly positive reviews on the site. I am a lawyer, and as someone engaged in a service industry, I place great emphasis on responsiveness and negotiation skills.

Ms. Rivkin was a delight---she was a zealous negotiator on our behalf and offered soup-to-nuts service, from selecting target properties to helping us with our post-closing maintenance and moving needs. Her knowledge of Alexandria is exhaustive and based upon a long acquaintance with the area. She has deep contacts in the community and introduced us to chimney sweeps, maid services, painters, et al., all of whom were top notch and completed their work swiftly and with great care. The financial team associated with her office provided a similar high level of service.

I would unreservedly recommend her services to anyone in the market for a home in Old Town, Alexandria, or anywhere in her coverage area. I would particularly recommend her to first-time purchasers, for whom her advice and guidance will be particularly valuable, as it was to us.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Alexandria, VA.

Bonnie Rivkin has been our go to realtor for the past three years. She helped us find a home that was perfect for our family in a place that was completely foreign to us. We were completely out of our element but she was patient and helped lead us to the perfect place. The thing that impressed us most about Bonnie was that the relationship wasn't over at the close of the deal. She continued to check in with us and was genuinely interested in knowing if we were happy. When the time came for us to sell there was no question who we would call. She is great at what she does. She knows her business without a doubt. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. Thanks Bonnie!!!!
