Why Purchase A Home With Arbour Realty…

You Have Options


You have lots of options when it comes to choosing a real estate professional. There are over 9,000 licensed Realtors in Northern Virginia alone. How then does a local firm like Arbour Realty, with a relatively tiny marketing budget have such a strong local following?

The majority of Arbour Realty’s growth is based on referrals from happy clients. Rather than invest our time and resources into marketing to attract new clients, we focus on service, expertise and results. In other words, we earn your business and loyalty.

What Arbour Realty Clients Are Saying

We recently purchased a home in the Northern Virgina area with the assistance of Adam @ Arbour Realty. When we started looking for a home last year I was recommended to Adam by a coworker.

Adam listened to our wish list and brought several home options to our attention. When those did not work out we repeated the process…several times for several months. During this time his passion for finding us the right home never wavered. Adam continually asked us questions that helped us narrow down our search until we found the perfect home. He made himself available on very short notice, including weekends.

When we finally found our dream home and started the closing process he stayed with us every step of the way. Explaining (sometimes several times) each step until we were comfortable moving forward.

We could never have found our home without Adam and the outstanding team at Arbour Realty. I have recommended Adam and Arbour Realty to several of my friends that have used Arbour to find their own dream homes.

Everyone talks about excellent customer service. When you work with Arbour Realty you get first class service the entire way.

Way to go!

I’d like to write about my experience with Arbour Realty and especially with Katie Hayes. Not only did they take the time to understand us and what it was we were looking for. Katie had the patience of Job in working with us while we went week after week looking for just the right place. Her eye for what we wanted was excellent and she only took us to really good places to see. Once we did she gave us solid advice on how to frame our offer to ensure we would be the ones to get the house in a multiple offer situation. Katie’s personality is fun and endearing. So much so that we think of her as more than just a realtor she is a friend. Who can say they still talk fairly regularly with their realtor 2 years after they bought their home? I would and do recommend anyone I can to Arbour Realty. I will never use another agency. EVER!!!!

Genevieve C. is an amazing agent, she was proactive, diligent and committed since day 1 in helping me look for a nice town house that met all of my criteria. She is the type of person that will look out for your best interest instead of doing business for business sake. She helped me into a place that was within my budget and satisfied all the things I was looking for (location, amenities, ease to highways, easy access to running and close to the military bases just to name a few). She was attentive to what matters to me the most and would give me honest opinion for each properties that came across viewing. Once we found the place she assisted/represented me in dealing/negotiating with the offering agent and finally provided additional assistance reviewing the lease prior to signing. I would recommend her to anyone that is new and/or return to Northern VA area.

Being first time home buyers, my wife and I were genuinely thrilled with Brooke’s work ethic, industry/area knowledge and most of all her patience. The entire process is normally overwhelming the first time, but when you add in the fact that we recently relocated from to the area, we were completely in over our heads. Brooke’s dedication and support was consistent throughout the entire process and we could not recommend her enough. If you are looking to buy a house in the northern Virginia area, find Brooke Schara!!!
