Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 in Ashburn, VA.
My experience with Coral was what every person, buyer or seller, should want out of home buying or selling process. Coral is attentive, outgoing, helpful, resourceful, understanding and at the end of the day, just wants what is best for you. Coral puts her best foot forward like you were her best friend. She treats you with respect and makes sure to put your needs before her own. She is in this business to make people happy and to create the most enjoyable experience possible.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Falls Church, VA.
I found Coral by reading the reviews on Zillow when we decided to sell our house and relocate to Florida. She has been impressive throughout the process. Our house needed upgrading and together we found an excellent contractor to redo parts of the kitchen and freshen up the overall appearance of the property. Coral helped in everything from what to upgrade to paint colors. She had excellent suggestions on what new buyers are looking for and how to keep us in budget while putting those ideas in place. She had the house staged and arranged for photos and videos of the house for potential buyers to view. Coral was always just a phone call away. She was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and ready to assist us in anyway, including taking on last minute repairs that needed to be done after we had already left town. I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the North Virginia area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Round Hill, VA.
Coral was fantastic in helping us with our relocation to North Virginia from Canada. She guided us through the whole process of buying a house in a very professional yet friendly manner. Her local knowledge was essential in helped us to narrow down the best area for us, to understand the real life commuting times, school system etc. Coral managed to negotiate the price down when we thought it not possible. She was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries or worries. Overall, Coral was great to work with and we would definitely recommend her.

Sold a home in 2014.
This was my second experience working with Coral and it was every bit as enjoyable as the first time around. A few years ago, Coral helped me purchase my first property, a condo. When our family outgrew the space, I immediately turned to her again. From the very beginning of the process, including getting our condo ready for sale, identifying criteria for the new home and starting to actually look at homes, she was incredibly patient and helpful. I never once felt rushed or pushed into listing our condo until we were actually ready. Coral showed us new homes in potential neighborhoods months before we were ready to actually pull the trigger. She also provided us with invaluable information for our market, when the ideal time to list would be and even did a walk through of our condo to let us know what we should fix/update pre-market and how to stage the condo. When we finally were ready to list, the photographer she brought in to do the photos did an absolutely amazing job. The photos, combined with Coral's staging advice and her connections with other realtors really helped create a buzz surrounding our place and within 72 hours of listing, we had 2 offers on the table ABOVE LIST PRICE. We couldn't have been happier.

The path to purchase of our new single family home was a bit rockier due to some waffling sellers, but in the end, it truly was Coral's negotiations and communications with the seller's realtor that sealed the deal and got us our dream home. I truly believe that had it not been for Coral and her approachable, yet firm negotiation skills, we wouldn't have gotten our new home.

Working with her a second time, I was reminded of how hard she works and how much she fights for her clients and what they deserve. She's honest, reliable, EXTREMELY responsive and just an absolute joy to work with. She also has killer recommendations for almost everything you could think of...home inspectors, contractors, even moving companies!

I recommend Coral to everyone - my sister and her husband actually used Coral just last year as well when purchasing their first home and had just as enjoyable an experience as we did. Coral's like family and I can't imagine ever using a different realtor!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Barcroft, Arlington, VA.
We were first time homebuyers and Coral was awesome in guiding us through the process. Her amazing customer service was evident from our first meeting during which she spent over two hours discussing our home-buying goals and describing the home searching, bidding, and financing process. Coral's straight-forward approach to realty and obvious knowledge of the Northern Virginia market drew us right in.

It took us less than a week to find a property we wanted to call home and, unbeknownst to us, that was when the real work began. Our desired property had multiple offers, and Coral calmly and confidently guided us through every step of the bidding process, working closely with our selected lender to ensure that we were making a strong and informed offer. After our offer was accepted, she remained steadfastly at our side through every stage of the home buying process and was extremely receptive to phone calls and emails.

Overall, what impressed us most was Coral's strong network of resources and professionals. Throughout the process, she provided us with multiple recommendations in everything from financing to home inspection to arborists. Even more impressive, her recommendations and advice never seemed pushy - she encouraged us to explore other home inspectors recommended by our friends and even advised us as to what types of questions to ask. We loved working with Coral and it was obvious to us that one of the reasons she is so successful in what she does is her positive and professional attitude. During our first walk-through of our home, we had an opportunity to chat with the seller's agent. It was clear from the conversation that she is both well-liked and well-respected in the real estate community, two things that go a long way in a business built on relationships.

We've been in our home for nearly four months now and Coral remains available for questions, concerns, and just general catching up. We whole-heartedly recommend her for anyone looking for a realtor who really is seeking to help you find what is best for you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Claremont, Arlington, VA.
We needed someone with excellent local knowledge, from market to banks and more. Coral fit the bill. We were able to get multiple offers on out house within a week. And under contract soon thereafter. We were then under contract for our new home within another week. We needed things to move quickly and Coral made it happen. From listing to closing within a month on the sale and purchase. We couldn't have been happier with her service.

Highly recommended.

Sold a home in 2013.
I hired Coral because of her can-do attitude; she handled extensive renovations to my house, worked with the contractor, picked tile and paint colors, etc. I am very pleased with our relationship and the results of the sale.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $950K in Mc Lean, VA.
I'll be completely truthful: I found Coral Gundlach on my own, without references, via her excellent blog. I tell you that so you'll know exactly how pleased we are that she is a superb realtor: Firm without being pushy and respectful without being a pushover! But most important, Coral listened to who we are and what we wanted and considered these things in every decision she made. I highly recommend her to all Northern Virginia homeowners.

Sold a home in 2013.
Coral is incredibly knowledgeable about Northern Arlington. We had a teardown to sell in the Cherrydale area, and out of five realtors we contacted to prospectively sell, she was the *only* one that had buyers already lined up, and checked zoning maps and setbacks before even meeting with us.

She knows exactly what to look for, what buyers are seeking, what questions to ask, and does her homework.

Plus she has a great sense of humor, and spent way more time than she should have helping a dysfunctional set of heirs work through the process of selling off a deceased parents house.

Five stars all around.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Alexandria, VA.
My fiance' and I would have no problem publicly thanking Coral for her services in our recent mortgage transaction (April 25, 2013). Beginning at our initial meeting, and continuing through closing, Coral was upfront, realistic and energetic when it came to meeting our needs and guiding first-time home buyers, and the both of us really respected that.

From the get-go, at the initial meeting, our first impressions were that Coral was a down-to-Earth and warm person who was very knowledgeable about the current marketplace in Northern VA and the surrounding areas (our search radius). She was able to inform us on current inventory and trends. As new home buyers she was also able to provide us with a high-level overview of the process and what we were to expect. She provided us with some recommendations on lenders and gave us their general schedules. After researching, we decided to go with one of her suggestions and could not have been happier. We both felt lucky that we found the lender we had. Since this is not a review of that service, I will not provide any further details, however, this is a theme that I would like to continue; Coral has a knack for providing high quality suggestions. She closed the initial meeting by providing us a snapshot listing of what was available in our range of needs. She had indicated that the snapshot was a brief review of what would be available to us after pre-approval, and that once pre-approved, she would work with us to tailor automatic listing updates that would reflect our needs.

After the initial meeting, it was on us to contact the lender and get pre-approval for our home loan. We had the ability to ask Coral questions on the matter, and we certainly did. Her responses were always very helpful. Once this was completed, we took advantage of her listing service, and we could not have been more pleased. She took the time to explain how it would work and it made the process of whittling down selections convenient and easy. Once we had decided on some of our favorites, we scheduled time with Coral to go out and look at the properties we had decided on.

Admittedly, the selection process for us was short lived. We were lucky enough to view an open-house one the first day of the search that would eventually be our home. However, it was the last property we viewed, so I can review Corals expertise in the search, however limited. We began by grouping properties in like-areas and then implemented a plan of attack. Coral knew what to look for, and always had the right questions to ask us to gauge our interest in the property. She was never pushy about any property we did view, and was just a very pleasant person to view properties with. She was also able to answer any of the questions we had, on the spot. I could not have been happier about this point in the process. She was just a wealth of information.

Our final viewing of the day is where the period of negotiation began. The unit was a sell-by-owner and Coral was to deal with the owner of the property on our behalf. Coral was very helpful when it came to overviews of the process and comparable values in the area. She was very on-point and timely when it came to making the offer and filing the paperwork. She used DocuSign, and we both thought that was very convenient. She also had our lender provide us mortgage estimates based on our offer so that we had an idea of our monthly budget. The property owner had been a little slow in responses to our offer and Coral was able to elicit a more timely response from them. The process lasted about a week because we had to update our offer after the home inspection. We were also very pleased with the home inspector that was suggested by Coral. We will be using his help and information for future home projects, on top of being a very information and resourceful inspector. Throughout this process Coral was always in contact with us, the lender, and the owners and we felt that we could have gotten ahold of her at any point. She was always very timely in response to our texts and e-mails. Once the final offer was accepted, and the documents signed, the loan went into underwriting.

The finalization of this process occurred after the loan was accepted by the lender. Coral had stayed in contact throughout that process and had provided us a very helpful timeline of events, and what to have prepared/activated/installed by the end of closing. I cannot reiterate enough how helpful she was throughout the entire process. Again, she had to step in when the HOA papers were not sent in a timely fashion for closing, and we certainly appreciated that. We took our final walk through and she was there at closing to help us with anything else that we had needed.

In closing, I would recommend Coral ten times over. A great person, and an adept and knowledgeable agent. A+++
