My dive into the fiercely competitive Northern Virginia housing market was a leap into uncharted waters. Recently widowed and living alone in a big house in the country a good distance from the Beltway, I gradually realized it was time to downsize and move closer to family. I needed a knowledgeable guide. Lucky for me, I found Liz Lord and could not have made a better choice. Liz made everything seem manageable. She brought a wealth of experience to my search, along with a huge helping of patience. A commercial real estate lawyer, former diplomat, longtime area resident whose children went through the Arlington schools, Liz understood every aspect of the fluctuating marketplace and clearly explained the pluses and minuses. She responded to every phone call; when I couldn’t make the trip, she and my son did virtual showings with me. Liz and her capable assistant Paige Bier showed me everything I was interested in and answered all of my questions. They never hesitated to set up a lastminute showing, even late on a cold, wet Sunday before Christmas. Their patience had no limit. Most of all, I appreciated her on-the-spot honest evaluation of each property we toured. She laid out the pros and cons and analyzed each home’s potential, financial and otherwise. Liz did not try to “sell” me; rather, she showed me what might work best for me going forward. Thanks to her sound advice, I became a more confident buyer and found the right property. Liz then deftly guided me through a smooth buying process. If you are looking for an agent in Northern Virginia, look no further than Liz Lord. From first phone call to final handshake, Liz is simply the best!
