Bought a home in 2014.

Gen was great to work with! She was very patient even though I changed my mind over square footage, number of rooms and locations throughout the process -- as she would say, "this is a little animal... things grow, and change and shift as you start to see what is available and what you may really want and need." Very true! I got the place wanted in the end, even if it isn't what I thought I wanted in the beginning, and she was with me the whole way, adjusting along the way.

Gen was patient with me through all the inevitable emotional moments where I reconsidered all the decisions I'd made up to that point -- she talked me through options, put things in perspective, and made sure I knew all the pros and cons. From the very beginning, she provided me with a road map and a lot of resources to look through before, during and after the process, and gave me a list of trusted vendors that were very reliable and a pleasure to work with.

Gen's also incredibly responsive -- she made sure I was taken care of even when she was on a very well-deserved vacation!

The only reason I didn't put 5 starts for negotiation is, as far as I knew (and maybe she shielded me from it) I think the sellers in my case were motivated enough that it wasn't a really difficult negotiation. I haven't seen her in action, but I imagine she's a tough cookie and would be very effective in negotiations.

Overall, a good experience. More stressful than I naively thought it would be, but I knew I was working with someone experienced.

I was so very honored to guide you through the purchase of your first home! There are very many nuances that go into the whole shebang- and now you can be a seasoned pro! The seller's were very motivated, and that is quite true, but we came up with a great strategy. Happy home-making, and thank you so much for letting me be a part of your home buying process! :)

Helped me rent a home.

While house hunting from across the county we never felt like it. Genevieve managed to help us not only figure out the best area for our family but house. Schools, neighborhoods, commutes, and cost were all huge issues, especially with moving to such a big city. She was a consummate professional and on top of all the details. I would recommend her to anyone moving to the area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Falls Church, VA.

We came across Genevieve's profile on Arbour Realty. After our first meeting with her, we immediately were captured by her southern personality and knowledge of the Arlington/Falls Church real estate market. We searched for homes in Arlington and Falls Church, VA. Gen is incredibly passionate about ensuring her clients find the best home for themselves that she actually went out of her way to take videos and notes for us when we couldn't make showings. Also, she never pushed us on settling on a home we weren't comfortable with. I have never met anyone who is so devoted to their work as much as her. She responded to all our questions and concerns immediately. Once we decided to close, she drafted an email to introduce us to everyone on her team, along with the title company team and the lenders. This email also included detailed explanation of who was doing what and when so there would no room for error or confusion. Her organization skills are uncanny that even our lender was excited to meet her. I have purchased a home before, but this felt like a walk in the park thanks to Genevieve. Even though we closed our property, our relationship with our outstanding realtor does not end here, she is staying in touch with us till we complete our renovation to ensure we don't run into any issues or questions. We cannot thank Genevieve enough for helping us find the home we plan to start a family with, and we have already recommended her to all our friends and family. We will definitely continue our relationship with Genevieve in the future.

Helped me rent a Townhouse home in Chantilly, VA.

Genevieve really went above and beyond in helping us find a place to rent in Northern Virginia. We were transferring to the area and were not able to physically be there to look at homes. Genevieve checked them out for us and even did videos for us. She was so helpful and very patient throughout the whole process. We highly recommend Genevieve!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Vienna, VA.

Genevieve helped us purchase a home in Vienna VA very recently. We were new to the area and our personal focus was pretty scattershot and honestly, a bit naive when it came to the challenging nature of the Northern Virginia real estate market. Genevieve was a consummate professional who educated us & helped us narrow our searches down until we found the perfect home for us. She is EXTREMELY patient and always positive which helped us immensely in our search. She also adds a personal touch - in particular with our seven year old son whom we had to drag to open houses & house hunting missions for several weekends in a row. She always tried to make it fun for him....which is no small feat! Her negotiating skills, follow through, & service after the fact are unparalleled. We are very pleased with her work & consider her a family friend now. We would not hesitate to employ her services again.

Helped me rent a Condo home in Springfield, VA.

Genevieve is pure joy to work with. She knows her profession and she knows people. She had situated many of my wonderful friends into homes in the past few years so when it was my family's turn – hiring her was a no brainer. She was incredibly responsive and stayed on top of every aspect of the search, the application process, and the finalizing of the lease and other details. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and wouldn't go anywhere else for any future needs. A typically stressful process of finding a new place to live was made seamless and easy by Gen as she navigated us through it all. So grateful for her!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Harker Heights, TX.

Whenever I am looking for a professional to provide me a service or product, I expect consistent and courteous communication with my provider. I contacted Genevieve to help me 1) find a place to rent in Virginia; and 2) find a reputable realtor in another state and for advice on selling my investment property. Genevieve was not only in constant contact with me, but she also exuded positive energy and made me feel at ease with my concerns. I appreciate her thoughtfulness and initiative in the service she provided.

Genevieve is a true expert in the realm of green living and available energy efficient options for homes. She is also a highly regarded professional with a massive network of realtors and community insiders. Seriously - You name it, she will find it (and it will be an excellent one!).

Thank you, Genevieve! I will keep coming back for her services and expertise.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Edgewater Beach, Briarcliff, TX 78669

Genevieve Concannon is the consummate professional. She provides in depth, easily navigable advice to clients from start to finish about the home buying and green building business. As far as knowledge, I found it very helpful that she has written guides that I could review that inform to to assist the process of selling and buying a home which reflect her expertise... Since my market area is outside of Genevieve's service area, she has referred me to a top notch realtor who is equally personable, professional, prompt, attentive, organized, well informed and has excellent negotiating skills in my area!

You are too kind for this sweet note. Helping you achieve your goals of downsizing and moving to where you needed to be was one of my greatest honors!

Bought a home in 2013.

I've known Genny for a little over 2 years as I met her through a friend at the time. She helped me find my rental home in Woodbridge the first time around and recently helped me close on my new home in Stafford.

Genny is a excellent realtor and knows her stuff. My experience buying my new home was not a pleasant one and she's been there for me with all the good and bad times and very much appreciate her thoughtfulness, professionalism, humor, and most of all friendship.

l will definitely use her again and promise you can't do any wrong by using her as well!

Bought a home in 2013.

We were in the market for a house in Northern Virginia. Gen was recommended to us by a friend who had recently purchased a house with Gen's assistance. We called Gen and she immediately made us feel very comfortable. A day after the call, Gen visited us to discuss our plans. She listened intently as we described the type of home we're looking for and the area in which we wished to buy. We wanted to live in the Gainseville/Haymarket area. After listening to us, Gen demonstrated her thorough knowledge of the area by explaining to us what to expect. She took the time to take us around and although we knew she was very busy, she always managed to make us feel like we were her only clients. She never rushed us and took her time in walking through various properties with us. When we overlooked something, Gen was quick to point out "issues" and other matters that were bound to become problematic for us in the future. The best thing about her is she never "steered" us. She allowed us plenty of time to walk through and then if she noticed that we missed something, she brought it to our attention. She was very knowledgeable about the area, the homes and the process in general. When we found the house that we fell in love with, Gen was incredible in representing us as if she's buying the home for herself. She negotiated in good conscience and was fair to the sellers. That said a lot about who she is as a person. Gen made the home buying process enjoyable, and minimized the stress involved. We highly recommend Gen to anyone thinking of buying a house in the Northern Virginia area. Thank you, Gen!
