"We've known Lyssa as a friend for 20+ years, but this was the first time we hired her as our seller agent. Lyssa worked her butt off for us and has amazing energy... Running around to make sure all the finishing touches were perfect, answering our emails, calls and texts at all hours, always giving us the feeling that she was dedicated to us! Lyssa collaborated throughout her vast network of colleagues to make sure our home was seen far and wide. She knew our neighborhood inside and out and could sell not only our home, but a way of life for a family. Lyssa sold our home in 21 days to a family moving half way across the country. Lyssa understood that selling our home was very emotional for us, she was with us throughout to make it a smooth transition. Thank you, Lyssa!!"
"The Seward-Group has represented us two times. Six years ago, Lyssa helped us buy our our townhouse. Recently she helped us sell our home and buy a new one. Our recent purchase was very challenging, and Lyssa guided us through it all with grace and good humor. She remained very professional even at times when I thought I would lose it completely. As for the sale of our house. She got us a contract even as nothing else in our neighborhood was moving, and we didn't have to drop our price below market value as some others were doing. With the support of her staging team, our house looked amazing. She did an amazing job making sure our house appraised at the sale price. She has an extensive list of top-notch contractors and she will even bring a contractor on home viewings to help brainstorm upgrade ideas - especially helpful if you're shopping for a fixer-upper as we were. We were especially impressed with the lender she recommended. After shopping for several, we picked her go-to guy and that was probably one of the best decisions we made. Lyssa and her crew are the A-team in Northern Virginia."
"Brittanie was a fantastic choice for us as first time home buyers. Through our search, she was always willing to talk through the pros and cons of each choice, and never pushed us to make a decision we weren't comfortable with. When we decided to make an offer, Brittanie dug in, reaching out to the seller's agent and making sure we had the best bid possible - which led to an extremely quick and easy negotiation, and a contract nearly immediately. During the month between bid and closing, Brittanie was exactly the calming presence we needed - always willing to jump on the phone or text when we had yet another question, there to offer reassurance when we were getting overwhelmed, and making sure to check in to see how we were handling the process, frequently. (Something I'm so grateful for!) With her guidance we had a smooth and quick closing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and highly recommend Brittanie to anyone looking for a calming and knowledgeable presence during their home buying process!"
"When we started looking for a home we were new, it's our first house, we did a lot of research and attended a bunch of open houses, but it didn't take more than meeting her once, at an open house to feel that she was the right one for us, because we never felt pressured, but just the right amount of information and guidelines from her side to help us find the perfect home for us. Melody was awesome, from the begining to closing, very knowledgeable and helpful, very detail oriented, we are so glad we found her. If we can advice someone that is looking to buy or sell a house, Melody will always be our first choice."
