She got us the best value for the house we sold as well as the house we bought. As a lifelong Northern Virginia native, her depth and breadth of knowledge are unparalleled and would strongly recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell.
On our first move to the DMV Elizabeth was extremely resourceful helping us to locate the perfect home to purchase for our family. We moved a few years later and rented the home out. When we received orders early back to the DMV and needed to find a rental home (since our home was still being rented), Elizabeth went and viewed the properties for us as we needed to rent sight unseen. We have been extremely happy with her professionalism.
I was wrong, you were a great choice. You have been remarkably dedicated and very thorough. Your professionalism and dedication has been a rock for me. . . .I feel very lucky to have you on my side. . .I really do think you go above and beyond the call of duty.
She really knows Northern Virginia, and has a huge amount of experience and insight into the local real estate market. She worked tirelessly, efficiently, and with dedication in helping us find the perfect home for our family in terms of size, location, schools and price. She was on top of things at all times, from the making of the offer, to negotiating of the contract, to being present and knowledgeable during the home inspection, and to helping us locate a qualified lender and a home warranty company. She is also very warm and personable – exactly the kind of person that you would want helping you make a decision as big as purchasing a home. We would highly, highly recommend her
Then we met Elizabeth Bouchard from your office and our situation turned around immediately. I have bought and sold several homes through the years, but I've never seen an analysis as complete as the one Elizabeth prepared regarding our townhouse. She helped us to understand fully what we needed to do to sell it while showing complete sensitivity to our need to minimize up-front costs. She acted as though she was selling her own home and helped us secure the maintenance and repair necessary for the townhouse to show well. This was especially important to us since we live in Michigan and could not do much of it ourselves. In the end, Elizabeth's analysis and recommendations were exactly on target and, within only a few days of putting it on the market, we had a contract with a buyer to whom we were glad to sell our townhouse. We are certainly proud that she represented us and we would gladly recommend her fully to anyone who wanted to have a great agent.”
After interviewing several agents, Elizabeth immediately stood out. She listened carefully to our needs and was able to secure us excellent deals on both the buying and selling of our houses, while working within our budget. Her comprehensive marketing made sure our sale was not missed. The other houses on the market at the time were not getting the traffic and bids that ours received. We would absolutely work with Elizabeth again and highly recommend her to anyone who is selling or buying a home. Our home is our largest investment so we had high expectations for our realtor... Elizabeth exceeded those expectations.
She was consistently prepared, and frequently informative on the state of the marketplace. The tools and resources she employed were state of the art and highly impressive and educational. Elizabeth is experienced in her profession and portrayed expertise in all our dealings. She added more value than we initially thought possible from a realtor. Excellent with her recommendations and her suggestions were on target and valuable. There’s no doubt in my mind our result wouldn’t have been so successful without her. We seemed to become friends as much as business partners as the goal line approached, and she even helped us pack up the last remaining items in the garage! Elizabeth had the process covered from beginning to end, and we were so glad she was with us throughout.
We sold our home in 5 hours at the apex of the COVID-19 pandemic. How? Beth was the trusted advisor in the area proactively marketing our property and thoughtfully staging our home. With her safe pair of hands, we moved through the closing process with excellent care of social distancing, masks, gloved open houses and virtual documentation and closing. We are so grateful to have worked with Beth in the selling of our home during a very stressful time. And yes, we did get over the asking price!
Out-of-state realtor friends advised that having the CRS and e-PRO certifications were key. So, I googled "best realtors in Arlington, VA 22204," and after applying these 2 search filters, found that the initial listing of 168 realtors rapidly dwindled down to a more workable 16. Elizabeth was one of my 3 choices to interview because she lived and worked in Arlington (and she has so many certifications listed on her business card she almost needs 2 lines to list them all)! Elizabeth impressed me from the beginning. She was the first realtor to return my initial call; the first one to meet with me; and, by far, the most prepared for our initial meeting. But perhaps what impressed me the most was her ability to deal with the many challenges we faced from showings to open houses to reviewing the contract offer to the inspection and all the way to closing. She has an amazing ability to deal very firmly and calmly with contractors, warranty companies and other realtors, while reassuring her emotionally-drained client that everything will work out. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone who is looking for an excellent realtor - especially for anyone who is selling for the first time.
She definitely set herself apart from the three other agents we interviewed and we are thrilled with the results of her efforts.
From the moment we started working with her (from across the country) we knew that we had a winner. We are extremely pleased with the result and would definitely choose her again!
This was important to us since we had a short window to find and buy our house. She devoted long hours and adapted her schedule to meet our needs. Additionally, due to her contacts throughout the real estate field, Elizabeth arranged every facet of our home purchase. Without her expertise and personal commitment, we would not have our home.
You gave us excellent advice on the timing of the sale, the renovations required, the pricing and marketing, and the sale itself. You worked flawlessly with the company that managed this property for us, organized reliable workers to execute renovations, assessed the value of the townhouse, scheduled an open house, and answered our many questions along the way. No detail was too large or small to escape your attention. It was thanks to your efforts that our townhouse sold quickly
Her work ethic on behalf of her clients is exceptional! She has great market expertise and she was tireless in ensuring that our home sale went as smoothly as possible We unhesitatingly recommend her as an agent for either home sale or purchase.
She knows her market and how to get best dollar for the houses or in this case condos (2) and afterward helped us find our dream home! Additionally, have recommended her to friends with absolute confidence.”
