We worked with Jason and Bonnie to sell a townhouse and buy a single family home from December 2014 through March 2015.<br/><br/>It was a pleasure working with both of them. Jason and Bonnie are warm, courteous, generous with their time, and very patient. We knew from our first introduction that these were the right professionals to help us through the real estate maze a second time. They were punctual to every showing and meeting, and were always willing to wait when we ended up arriving late.<br/><br/>We were not first time buyers, but we were first time sellers. This led to many, many questions in person, via text, over the phone, and via email. Jason and Bonnie were always quick to respond even late into the evening and weekends. <br/><br/>Jason and Bonnie have a wealth of local contacts that can assist with the many aspects of real estate transactions. Contractors, financial folks, home inspectors, etc. Key among these individuals, and a service that you should not pass up, is the FREE staging consultation. Bonnie and the stager spent a solid two hours working their way from room to room, utilizing our existing decor and furniture in most cases, to get the most pop in each living space. This resulted in some really great home staging photographs and we incorporated much of the advice we received when decorating our new home. We also followed Jason's suggestion on a Contractor to do some work on the house to prepare it for sale. We had an excellent experience with that contractor and now have a go-to person for home improvements in the future. We found all of these supporting players to have the same level of engagement and resourcefulness as Jason and Bonnie, with very competitive costs, and rock solid advice.<br/><br/>We had a very aggressive timeline that we wanted to achieve in both the selling and buying transactions. Jason and Bonnie were on point with helping make that happen. While inevitably there is always "down time" during this process, when things picked up pace, they were ready. As a result, we were confident in a quick sale, and that's exactly how it worked out. We ended up receiving well over our asking price on the townhome and 4 offers (two with escalation clauses), and it was under contract the third day of being on the market. On the buying side, the perfect property popped up at just the right moment. Jason and Bonnie promptly helped us negotiate a very fair deal for the home the same night we signed the contract for the townhouse. Their advice was integral as we were competing against two other bidders for the property. We were able to construct an appealing bid for the seller without having to pay over asking price. <br/><br/>Jason and Bonnie have a straight forward rate/fee structure that does not come with any surprises. What we were told the first night we met Jason was exactly how the fees worked out at settlement. Their rates (4.5%) are very fair and much less than the competition, and as I've described, this is a full service listing. We also always worked with either Jason or Bonnie, compared to some of the larger real estate groups where you don't know who you will talk to. Jason personally staffed our open house so when visitors had questions he was able to answer them. Additionally, their organization provides a credit toward closing if you utilizes the in-house title company. This took a nice dent out of the cash we needed to bring to settlement.<br/><br/>I highly recommend Jason and Bonnie for your real estate transaction. We've recommended them to friends, and if we ever end up in the market again, they'll be the ones I reach out to for help a second time.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Seminary Hill, Alexandria, VA.

Bonnie and Jason are amazing! They helped make the buying process so simple. They listened to our ideas on what we wanted and took us out over and over to look and look again. They are so patient and in the end helped us to get the seller to change our closing date to save a ton money each month. They are easy to get along with and want their buyers to be happy. I will recommend them to all my friends who will be buying homes soon! Thanks again guys, we are loving the home you helped us find!!! Pat & Maggie

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Springfield, VA.

Jason is an example of what a real estate agent should try to become. He explained everything from when we first met to the end when we got our sales price for our house. Jason did a great job in marketing our house and also worked with us at all hours to address every minor and major issue. He is top notch. If every real estate agent modeled his or her career after Jason, real estate agents would become a more admired profession. I HIGHLY recommend anyone selling their house to use Jason Sanders as their agent. He is one of the best

Bought a home in 2015 in Seminary Hill, Alexandria, VA 22302.

Jason and Bonnie were the epitome of professional and dedicated in helping us find our first home. The hours they spent with us scouting properties and going over contract agreements was invaluable. Their breadth of knowledge and expertise in the field was clear, and we always felt we were in good hands. As a bonus, they were incredibly pleasant to work with. I would recommend Jason and Bonnie to anyone!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Aurora Highlands, Arlington, VA.

Jason and Bonnie are energetic, pleasant, respectful, and easy to deal with, and I felt comfortable sending them into negotiations on my behalf. Bonnie took us to see numerous listings, some that we spotted online and others that she suggested would be a good fit. They work closely together, so if one person was not available, the other could easily take over, so it really felt more like one person with incredible accessibility. Jason handled the paperwork and negotiation process and was a good listener and giver of feedback when I wanted to bounce different ideas off him. I work in the commercial real estate industry, so have a familiarity with the sales process, but it definitely was a value-add to have Bonnie and Jason on my side due to their knowledge of the residential market and connections with good local contractors and inspectors.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Alexandria, VA.

I really appreciated working with Jason and Bonnie. They make a very good team and have very complementary skills. We visited probably about 5-10 homes and we never felt pressured to buy. They showed as much as we needed to see and made us feel good about our choices. We are very happy with our current house and the price we paid for it! I would totally recommend working with them if you try to purchase a house.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Columbia Heights West, Arlington, VA.

Jason and Bonnie did an wonderful job helping me throughout the entire process of finding and buying my first home. Communication was excellent; they answered any questions I had thoroughly and succinctly and always responded to my e-mails very quickly. As a team they were entirely accommodating of my schedule and did a great job of making sure the transaction process moved along efficiently. They are both good people who understand what buyers are looking for. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jason and Bonnie to anybody who is looking to purchase their next home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Springfield, VA.

Jason and Bonnie are a great team. Jason was our initial contact, and was very forthright and plain-spoken about the entire process. Bonnie was very helpful in showing us how we could best make our home most presentable for would-be buyers; she also did a wonderful job of photographing our home to put the very best "look" of it on the Internet. Jason and Bonnie had done their homework, clearly. We were surprised when they suggested an asking price for our home that was somewhat higher than what we were expecting to get for it. We acquiesced, and lo and behold, we were able to sell our home for 99.2% of the price that Jason and Bonnie had suggested!

Sold a home in 2014 in Jefferson, Falls Church, VA 22042.

I have had the privilege to work with Jason Sanders on two separate real estate transactions - buying our current family home and selling a rental property. Jason's experience and knowledge of the local real estate market are at the top of the class, but the real value that Jason adds is his willingness to understand his clients needs and wants and combining these preferences with his knowledge to successfully complete a transaction.

Jason is the type of professional that doesn't just tell a client what they want to hear, but listened to our preferences, and then provided guidance after researching the market. As an example, Jason was very quick to share with us what types of improvements would truly add value to our rental property prior to sale - and challenged us not to spend extra money in areas that would provide us a return in the area that we were selling.

Jason was very responsive - even when my questions and responses weren't always timely or convenient. In both transactions, he had our best interest in mind instead of just trying to close a sale.

I highly recommend Jason to my clients and my friends, and will also use Jason and Bonnie on any future real estate transactions that we may have.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Springfield, VA.

We used Jason and Bonnie to help sell our home in Springfield, Virginia. In addition to being wonderful people, Jason and Bonnie are also wonderful agents. They are very trustworthy, and we felt that they always had our best interest at heart. They are very organized and knowledgeable about the housing market and offer helpful advice. Jason has strong communication and negotiation skills without being overbearing. Bonnie's expertise in interior design is a real asset during the staging process. We were able to easily work with both of them and achieve our goal of selling our home for a great price. We find great pleasure in giving Jason and Bonnie our highest recommendation!
