Testimonial from Rich and Anne-Marie:
“There is no way we could have been more satisfied in choosing Elizabeth McGuiness to be our real estate agent.  From our initial meeting to our closing date, she displayed a level of service, attention to detail, and a professional knowledge of her trade that gave us confidence that one of our most important decisions was in the best hands possible.  She provided constant communication throughout the process and made certain that we were informed of every detail that related to our purchase.  IF you are looking to buy or sell your home then we believe that you can put your trust in Elizabeth McGuiness to do the best possible for you.”


Testimonial from Zaolin Lim:
"Elizabeth McGuiness has been an outstanding realtor. I have worked with other realtors before but Elizabeth has shown attention to details and able to show me a house that met my needs. She is not in a hurry to sell me a house so that she can make a quick commission out of it. I find that she is trustworthy and keeps to her words, which makes her stand out from the other realtors. I would definitely recommend her to my friends in the future if they are looking for houses.“


Testimonial from Bart and Kim Brown:
"Elizabeth McGuiness did a terrific job in representing our interests and concerns during the sale of our home in Falls Church and purchase of our new home in Chantilly. She went above and beyond to ensure a smooth process from start to finish. Her unique knowledge and experience of the local area resulted in us receiving an amazing price for our home, which was a direct result of her hard work and availability at all hours of the day. Her exceptional interpersonal skills makes communication and interaction with her very easy and enjoyable. I strongly recommend Elizabeth McGuiness to anyone looking to sale or purchase a home - she is simply the BEST!“


Testimonial from Bill & Lisa:
"If you want a great experience dealing with a real estate agent, then you really need not look any further than Elizabeth McGuiness. She is very responsive and never leaves you wondering what's happening throughout the process. Her no-pressure approach, knowledge of the market, experience handling potential problems, and her all-around good nature make her an absolute pleasure to do business with and it helped us get top dollar for our property! At no point in the process (ours was complicated) did we feel she wasn't representing our best interests. There were clear opportunities where I felt she could have pushed us a little to move the transaction along for the benefit of her commission, but Elizabeth never even came close to going down that path. She is a true professional! Whenever an issue did surface, she always came across like a "trusted family member" wanting to help us resolve the issue to our satisfaction. I recommend her highly and would not hesitate to use her again."


Testimonial from John C:
"Elizabeth McGuiness's real estate acumen and local experience made the intimidating process of buying our first home a smooth and happy one. Elizabeth worked diligently to ensure we found the right home for us. She was an invaluable guide and advocate for us, and we are deeply appreciative of her hard work. “

Testimonial from Norm:
“Elizabeth McGuiness is the best real estate agent we have ever used -- both on the west coast & the east coast.  Professionals like her are few & far between -- we need more like her.”


Testimonial from Jose & Patti:
"Elizabeth was pleasant, engaging and knowledgeable about the Real Estate business and market in Northern Virginia. She has become a friend and I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends. Elizabeth rocks!!! “


Testimonial from Scott and Wendy:
“We first met Elizabeth about 5 years ago at an open house.  We did not buy that house that day but the impression that she left with us was profound.  She had a very professional yet friendly outlook and after that initial meeting she followed up with us through monthly newsletters.  We eventually found the perfect house and when that happened we knew who to call.  Since that time we have bought and sold several homes through Elizabeth.  She is a stickler for detail and always willing to go above and beyond to do what is needed to get the job done.  She has been a joy to work with and we have been very pleased with her service.  She has been a wealth of knowledge to us during our home buying and selling process; she always had the answers that we needed.  Most of all, we have come to know her and we can call her our realtor and our friend.”


Testimonial from Terry and Val:
“Our family recently had the good fortune to once again use Long and Foster, this time to sell our home.  The service we have received over the past 15 years from L&F has always been outstanding, but this time even more so, as our agent was also our neighbor, Elizabeth McGuiness.  IN addition to her tireless work, she brought with her an appreciation for the neighborhood itself, and all that Poplar Tree has to offer its residents.  Her enthusiasm is real, and every prospective buyer could easily tell that she had a genuine interest in not just selling a house, but making them feel that they would be a welcome addition.  With Elizabeth, you get the neighborhood real estate expert, with a true concern and commitment to her neighbors.”


Testimonial from Pete and Jennie:
“We were so pleased to work with Elizabeth when we bought and sold our home in Gainesville, VA!  My husband and I had moved frequently with the military, so we’ve had our share of real estate experiences.  We found “emcg” through a friend who strongly recommended her.  We were excited and happy to become her clients.  The trait we liked best about Elizabeth was her accountability and her “not on my watch” mentality.  She responsibly covered all the details to ensure things happened on time without any surprises.  We didn’t have to worry about a thong with “emcg.”  She worked with a dedication we had never experienced before.  She made great suggestions, answered our questions as a trusted authority and got the job done.  Should we find ourselves back in Northern Virginia, Elizabeth will be the first person we call!"


Testimonial from Ron & Donna:
"My husband and I recently relocated after living in Chantilly for the past 18 years. When the time came to choose a realtor, the choice was easy. While Elizabeth has been a friend for many years, we were completely comfortable using her in a professional capacity.
Elizabeth was the consummate realtor from beginning to end. We never had a question she didn't answer or a concern she didn't address. We felt that her expertise, especially in Poplar Tree Estates, was invaluable. During a time when homes were being sold for less than asking price, we were able to sell our home for the list price.  No small feat given the market but Elizabeth knows the market very well and she will work extremely hard to get you the best possible price for your home.
We were thrilled with the entire process and would not hesitate to recommend Elizabeth McGuiness to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.”


Testimonial from Ellen and Jeff:
"Elizabeth was very knowledgeable and calm; a true professional. Our purchase was flawless even with some unforeseen items in the final walk through. Elizabeth negotiated with the owner & the owners realtor as to how best proceed to the settlement table. Elizabeth’s follow up and commitment continued after the settlement as she called several times after we moved in to our new home to assure that the items were all resolved."


Testimonial from Linda and Paul:
"When we planned to sell our house in April 2007, we knew that Elizabeth would be the right realtor for us in a down turning market.  Her professionalism is outstanding.  She kept us abreast of everything she was planning to do to market the house, had pictures taken of the interior and exterior of the house so it could be marketed on her website, had a successful open house, and got us through all the paperwork and inspections very smoothly.  In twenty days, our house was sold.  I would highly recommend Elizabeth McGuiness as the person to go to when buying or selling a house.  You can feel confident that she will give you 110%."


Testimonial from Cathy:
“Elizabeth was always available to answer our questions.  She followed up with all the agents who brought clients to view our home and provided us with their feedback.
Elizabeth is very detail oriented and was pro-active in anticipating potential problems or issues.
Elizabeth is honest, trustworthy, and conscientious and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends for any of their Real Estate needs.”


Testimonial from Althea:
“As a business professional that works with contracts on a daily basis, Elizabeth set my mind at ease with her attention to every detail.  She ensured that all the t’s were crossed and the I’s were dotted on both sides of the negotiations.  She was aggressive in her follow up with the selling agent to make sure nothing was missed or not disclosed.  She made sure we understood all the documents completely.  I have highly recommended Elizabeth to others and will continue to do so.”


Testimonial from Chris & Hilary:
"Working with Elizabeth was a pleasure. She listened to our wants and needs and led us to the exact property that met all our needs. She was wonderful to work with and truly knows her business.
Elizabeth did everything right and all of her recommendations were spot on. I can highly recommend her and would use her expertise tomorrow if I was looking to buy. “


Testimonial from Jimmy & Carrie:
"Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with. She has excellent knowledge of local real estate and made us comfortable because of that. She was very approachable and easy to work with."


Dear Long and Foster,
I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the outstanding service of one of your Realtor’s, Elizabeth McGuiness who recently assisted me with a home purchase in Ashburn, Virginia.    
I’ve relocated 11 times in the past 15 years in and out of the United States and have dealt with many realtors both on the purchasing side and selling side and by far, Elizabeth provided exemplary service in comparison.  I would not consider myself an easy client yet Elizabeth worked with me through each step of the process.  She was patient with me and listened to my needs and desires and tailored her approach to fit my needs.  She made suggestions and recommendations, and often asked for feedback on whether or not she was meeting my expectations and I’ll answer with an absolute YES!  She provided me the information I needed to make a decision and I am very happy with the home that I purchased and the entire process with Elizabeth.   
I am in the retail business and study customer service constantly in an effort to improve the customer experience we provide to our customers.  Elizabeth’s service delighted me….she went beyond satisfying my basic needs in many ways and for that I say thank you for attracting, hiring, and retaining such great talent.  The level of professionalism she displayed along with her technical knowledge, personal skills, and plain old hard work and commitment resulted in me finding exactly the home I was looking for.  You have an excellent Realtor working for you and Elizabeth McGuiness epitomizes what a Realtor should be.  I will absolutely recommend Elizabeth to anyone I meet in this area looking for a real estate and though I hope not to move again for a while, I would not consider any Realtor other than Elizabeth to sell my home when I do relocate.  
There are many Realtors that can learn a lot from Elizabeth….she knows her business, she learns her clients, and she provides unparalleled service.  She is a true professional and I’m thankful to have found such an exemplary realtor and a genuinely nice person to have represented me in my home purchase.  Thank you for employing such great talent.  She’s a credit to your organization and demonstrates your commitment to your customers.
