"I recently downsized and I chose Kermit Johnson, Long and Foster Real Estate, as my realtor and I am very happy with the selection I made. With Kermit’s help, I found the townhouse I wanted to move in. It was perfect and I was very skeptical about selling my home fast enough to be able to purchase it.
Kermit did everything he could to make this a quick and easy transaction for me. My home sold in a few days!!! He did everything he could to help me with repairs that needed to be done to my previous home and my present home. He helped line up all of the inspections and testing that had to be done to both places. If I forgot anything, I just called Kermit.
He hasn’t forgotten me yet, either. He brought me eclipse glasses, Halloween candy and I stopped by his office for a pecan pie for Thanksgiving. I counted and realized that Kermit was the sixth realtor I have used and I have never had the kind and educated experience he provided from anyone else.

"I am writing this letter of recommendation in regard to our recent realtor, Kermit Johnson of Long and Foster realtors, Moneta, VA.
A short history……after trying to sell our beautiful home for almost a year in 2015-2016 with a realtor from another agency, to no avail, we took our home off the market. After a short break, we decided to try again with another realtor. We contacted Kermit to meet with him to sell our home. Within less than an hour, Kermit met us in our home, with all preparation (stats, comparables, etc.), in hand, we together agreed on a listing price. The “for sale” sign was in our yard by the end of our meeting!
Kermit is the ultimate professional in everything he does. From returning calls or texts immediately, to replacing brochures as soon as needed, he was present and available whenever we needed him. We had found a home in another city and had put a contract on it. We received a great offer, with the buyer wanting to settle within three weeks time, from the signing of the contract. Kermit had a great rapport with the buyers’ realtor and knowing how stressful the situation was for my husband and me, took the ball and ran with it. He made sure that the process was the least stressful it could be for us, going above and beyond at every turn. The process ran smoothly, due to all of Kermit’s’ efforts. We were able to settle on both homes with no snags.
Kermit is a true people person. He was never “pushy” when discussing our sale price. Having had this happen before to us, Kermit was a breath of fresh air. He is devoted to making his clients happy and it surely shows. His expertise is beyond reproach. He’s honest, dependable and has immense integrity. We truly wish we had met him sooner!
I would highly recommend Kermit to anyone who is interested in selling their home or buying another home. We would definitely list our home or search for another home, if the need arose again!

"We want to thank you for the great service you provided to us when selling our Huddleston house. From the beautiful online photos to your mass mailing promotions to your client follow-up, we couldn't have asked for a more professional representation of our home. Whenever we had questions or suggestions, you were quick to respond. You also eased our doubts when we were troubled about something. You knew we were anxious about the timeframe and we were so happy when the house sold in only two months!
You are a very hard worker and we heartily recommend you and your services to any potential home buyer or seller. Thank you for your efforts in making our move successful!
