Professional, tenacious, positive, reachable, open, capable, knowledgeable...and valuable!
As a first time buyer she took me through the process step by step and allowed me to take in the experience. Precise, honest, knows her business and can she negotiate!
Thorough, forthright, diligent, very savvy, she saved me money with her attention to detail.
In a recent email a client of mine wrote:
Thanks for all you are doing. Whatever the percentage of a purchase you eventually get, it will come with a bottle of champagne and a great dinner. I have come to fully understand your authenticity when you note being a client’s "Realtor for Life".
Speaking for myself and Christine, I want to thank you for all of your help, experience, and advice you offered throughout the process to sell my mother's house. Neither of us had ever sold or assisted in the sale of a house before - the uncharted territory that loomed ahead of us was daunting, but you spelled it out so we were able to understand the process better (and know when not to worry !). Actually, we thought it would take longer to sell the house than it did, but the milestones you set for us to work toward made it more manageable.
When it came time to consider the purchase offer, my mother and I truly valued your experience and advice - and as it turned out, that WAS the only offer my mother received (as you said it might be), so I am glad she accepted the offer (I too did not look forward to maintaining the house over the winter).
On Friday, I was thrilled to pick up the sale check for my mother, and it was the largest check I have ever held in my hands (and probably will be!) - it is safely tucked away in a bank deposit box until she decides where to put the proceeds.
Time will tell how the old homestead will fare under the new owners but as my mother noted, she has many wonderful memories of living there (as do I) that will bring her much comfort.

We wholeheartedly endorse Esther's capability to be of assistance to anyone selling a home in McLean. She possesses the needed marketing strategies and professional skills to lead you through the entire process from pricing, listing, marketing, negotiating, to closing. She is a consummate professional and compassionate person. She definitely has the skills and experience to represent any Seller successfully.
Additionally, Esther helped with the purchase of our home. She brought in a truly competent home inspector who advised us and she walked us through the negotiations with the builder to a very successful conclusion.
We are glad we found her not only to help us sell but to buy.
