"She was our best advocate and advisor.
I always felt taken care off and given the best advice"
Felix Pena, Fairfax Virginia (Seller) Tue, 25 Dec 2018 06:55:53 +1000
"My husband and I bought our condo while we are in two overseas locations - him in Seoul and myself in the Middle East. Tracey took into consideration the time differences in 3 locations(!) and made the whole process worked smoothly. With our family friend who viewed the various properties with Tracey on our behalf, Tracey knowledgeably pointed out the pros and cons of each place and she was never pushy to make a sale. She was patient and available for our questions and understood our needs and concerns before, during and after the closing. When we are shopping for our next property, we will definitely work with Tracey Barrett again."
Elaine Chu, Fairfax (Buyer) Mon, 26 Nov 2018 16:31:36 +1000
"Tracey’s performance was outstanding; she went above and beyond for us. This shows in the results; our townhome sold faster than any of the comps during our timeframe. It also sold at a higher price. This is due to Tracey’s expertise particularly with staging and photography. Tracey really understood our constraints as well; we have two small children, two dogs, and two demanding careers. There was not a lot of time to engage in extensive staging or home improvements. Tracey helped us prioritize what improvements sell against those that do not.
As far as the purchase of our new home, we nearly got into a bidding war, but Tracey’s constant communication with the seller’s agent ultimately got us a fabulous home in a beautiful neighborhood we were not even considering. When we were touring homes, Tracey noticed patterns of our likes/dislikes better than we did sometimes.
In the end, we could not have had a better realtor. I only wish I could buy and sell houses all the tIme so I can work with Tracey."
Allison, Clifton, VA (Buyer) Sat, 17 Nov 2018 14:57:47 +1000
"Tracey was extremely knowledgeable and responsive throughout the process of selling our townhome and buying a detached home. She provided excellent advice on decluttering, staging, and showing our old home and expertly guided us through the complicated process of selling and buying a home simultaneously. She helped us sell our house in an environment of rising interest rates with multiple competing properties in our neighborhood. Our house sold faster than the comparable properties and for a higher price. We are completely satisfied with Tracey’s performance and would recommend her to friends or use her again without hesitation."
Mark M, Centreville (Seller) Fri, 16 Nov 2018 08:12:17 +1000
"Our house was 47 years old, and had the same tenant for the previous 18 years. Major renovations were required. The buyer's home inspection identified a number of issues. There was a continual need to exchange contact via phone, email and text to bring home the sale. Tracey and Ingrid were constantly on top of everything. Tracey had an extraordinary list of professionals to call on for skilled remodeling work, home repair, moisture mitigation, professional photography, etc. Her ability to call on those resources, and the skill of those individuals were critical to the success of this sale."
Jennifer Moore, Apple Valley, CA (Seller) Sun, 16 Sep 2018 04:43:01 +1000
"Tracey was very responsive to our first contact. But, we were really sold when we met her in person. She was professional, personable, energetic, informative, attentive ... the whole package. Throughout the process of selling our house we were not disappointed, ever. We really felt that our house was in good hands with Tracey and that she had our best interests at heart. Especially given that we were selling from a distance, Tracey's professionalism and energy made the process a real pleasure. We would enthusiastically recommend Tracey Barrett to anyone!"
Ty Ferre, Reston VA (Seller) Fri, 31 Aug 2018 06:35:42 +1000
"Tracey and Ingrid were absolutely amazing! They helped me every step of the way with the purchase of my new home. They helped me navigate the difficulty of selling a home and purchasing a new one all with the added wrinkle of closing on the same day. I felt that I could trust both Tracey and Ingrid in this process and I couldn’t have done it without them. I truly appreciated everything they did for me and my daughter and helping me get our new home!"
Sharie Reyes Albers, Bristow, VA (Buyer) Sun, 12 Aug 2018 04:42:30 +1000
"Tracey Barrett’s knowledge of the area as both a long time resident and realtor was important as we both sold and purchased homes while overseas
Tracey knew exactly what we needed to do to prepare our property for listing. Her knowledge of the current market ensured the house was priced well too.
Tracey asked the questions we didn’t realize we even had when looking at new homes. We recommend her without reservation"
Amy Kris, Springfield (Seller) Wed, 25 Jul 2018 08:00:31 +1000

"Tracey went far and above what was expected in a realtor. She has been on top of all aspects of this sale from the beginning and continues to monitor even after the sale. We would without a doubt use her again and highly recommend her services to everyone."
Michael Powers, Wiesbaden Germany (Department of Defence) (Buyer) Wed, 31 Jan 2018 15:14:52 +1000
"Tracey Barrett has excellent knowledge of the local area, which was really helpful as we considered where to settle our family and grow some roots. She is exceptional with respect to attention to detail, communication, and responsiveness. We truly felt she had our best interests at heart."
Carolyn Lichstein, Fairfax, VA (Buyer) Fri, 26 Jan 2018 05:48:43 +1000
"Tracy was recommended to us by another realtor in the area to avoid a conflict of interest. Tracy is open, friendly and personable. From the very first phone call, we felt a connection with Tracy and we knew she was the right agent for our home hunt in Northern Virginia.
We were moving from FL and Tracy helped us wade through lots of virtual showings to develop and understanding of the features we wanted in a home. Because of her planning and prep, we were able to find a great house at a very fair price on the first weekend of “in person” showings.
We ended up in a competitive bid situation for our offer and Tracy guided our negotiations with the seller to develop the winnng bid. I feel we would have lost our dream home if we had used a less experienced realtor.
Tracy stayed right on top of the closing process, helping us to secure all of our inspections, survey, appraisal, insurance and financing in record time. She even walked us through a last minute freak out on the HOA terms. Tracy’s market and regional knowledge as well as her assistance in finding the right local lender let us not only win the sale, but we were able to close in just 10 days from our offer.
Thank you for helping us find a great home, Tracy."
John and Luz in Manassas (Buyer) Fri, 24 Nov 2017 10:53:20 +1000
"I have several realtors in my circle of friends and family, but have known Tracey for several years through my BNI, and would trust Tracey above all else because of her knowledge, dependability, and heart. Therefore, I chose Tracey for my home sale.
There were difficulties along the way, but Tracey was always there providing us with her utmost professional assistance and guidance, yet at the same time give us room to make our decision. We couldn't have done this well and with this little stress with another agent.
Couldn't ask for a better agent than Tracey Barrett."
Trang Ton & Quyen Dang, Fairfax VA (Seller) Thu, 09 Nov 2017 11:50:04 +1000
"I recently purchased my first home with Tracey Barrett and Ingrid Barrett. Both realtors were excellent to work with during this process. I never felt rushed during my time searching and I appreciated their patience with me even when I felt that I would not find the ideal home. I did. Tracey's help and guidance during the inspection phase and closing process was light years beyond what I expected and I am extremely happy with my purchase."
LH-A, Fairfax. (Buyer) Tue, 17 Oct 2017 01:35:48 +1000
"We had specific needs for.our home due to our family circumstances. I can not say enough good, positive or kind things about Tracey Barret and the professional and caring manner in which she helped our family. She was always informative, positive and professional. We will be using her when we are ready to sell our old home and would recommend her to family and friends."
Sue and Mark Fairfax, VA (Buyer) Sat, 07 Oct 2017 07:44:17 +1000
"I can't enough good things about Tracey and her team. Viewing houses with them was such a fun and eye-opening experience to learn about all the tiny details I needed to consider for the long-run. Their extensive knowledge of not just houses, but also the local market, made me confident in weighing my options and putting in an offer.
They also were assertive in making sure I was getting a fair price on the house as well as getting repairs made prior to closing. It's obvious they were more focused on looking out for my interests (even if it took more time and energy) than to make a quick sale.
When it came to all the paperwork in preparation of closing, I often work long hours with limited availability, but they went out of their way to accomodate my busy schedule. However, they went out of their way to often deliver me documents in person and answer any questions I had.
I have absolutely no regrets working with choosing Tracey and her team. I'd deifnitely recommended them to friends and family!"
Steve hsu, Vienna (Buyer) Tue, 26 Sep 2017 07:22:59 +1000
"We considered local brokers whose yard signs we had seen, believing they knew the area well.
Tracey delivered everything we asked for and needed. A true professional.
As previously stated, Tracey was a true professional. Extremely responsive, kept the process moving, and provided excellent advice every step of the way."
Stan Spence, Burke VA (Seller) Sat, 26 Aug 2017 23:54:44 +1000
"Tracey Barrett is customer service extraordinaire!!! When challenges arose, Tracey always had recommendations. I always knew where we were in the selling process due to Tracey's excellent communication skills. I couldn't be more pleased how smoothly the whole process went. If I were ever to move back to Fairfax and wanting to purchase a home, CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty/Tracey Barrett would be my first stop!"
Chris Cizek, Fairfax (Seller) Thu, 08 Jun 2017 05:13:36 +1000
"Could not have been more pleased with Tracey, she exceeded already high expectations.
Her partner, Ingrid, was always available when Tracey was not. Their support and coverage was seamless."
Chris P, Fairfax, VA (Buyer) Thu, 18 May 2017 00:47:33 +1000
"Tracey was extremely timely with all responses and addressed concerns thoroughly. I felt confident that she was representing me fully to meet my expectations and get my the best value for my home. She was sensitive to the fact that the decision to sell my home was a difficult one and shepherd me through process with much patience. I was treated with respect and any objections or concerns I mentioned were always heard out and addressed. My home sold within in hours with multiple contracts to choose from which further serves as testimony to her expertise and marketing efforts."
Cindy Royce, Ashburn (Seller) Tue, 09 May 2017 06:40:05 +1000
"Tracey was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She helped take what I told her and direct it in an effective way to find the properties I was truly interested. She made herself available to ensure I could see the properties in a timely fashion and effectively used technology to make the process easier, day or night.
She had wonderful business contacts that helped with the lending funds and closing. I'm very appreciative and happy of her efforts to get me into my home."
Brian Frankl, Alexandria VA (Buyer) Tue, 09 May 2017 03:08:23 +1000
"Making the decision to buy a condo was pretty stressful for me. From my very first meeting with Tracey I felt her enthusiasm and support as she asked me the appropriate questions to obtain the information she needed to find what I was looking for. She introduced me to her site so I could see what was out there and so I could check off what I liked about ones that stood out to me. That way I could clarify for both of us what I wanted on my wish list.
Moving on , Tracey always encouraged me to go look in person to get a real view of the property. She was available at short notices and for times convenient for me.She was patient when I felt I needed to keep looking and assured me that I would find "the one ".
At times my search seemed daunting but I knew in my heart that Tracey's eye was always on the inventory and so if I needed a mental break from it all I was covered.
When it was time for making an offer and settlement I felt protected. Tracey guided me through the process and explained the paper work to my understanding . If there was a glitch she was on top of it and nothing seemed impossible. She was a confident spokesperson and professional in all her interactions .
Having Tracey explore each condo with me taught me how to pay attention to the details. I learned about looking at the age of appliances, running water and checking for leaks, and opening windows. I always knew she had my best interest at heart and felt she would guide me through the process with attention to time constraints.
Tracey was always a phone call or text away and communication was very easy. She made herself available to show me any property and searched for ones she felt matched my needs. I was impressed by her availability and energy.
Ingrid partnered with Tracey to ensure all my needs were met. She was well informed of all my wish list items and suggested different properties for me to check out . She made herself available for showings and shared the paper work necessary for offers made.
I would highly recommend Tracey Barrett as someone you can trust and respect but also someone who genuinely cares . She is very knowledgeable and resourceful and will make it happen for you ."
Paula Hay, Oakton (Buyer) Sat, 08 Apr 2017 21:42:22 +1000
"Tracy, was great. All business when it came down to money, but able to take a joke and not act like a stress case. Again, she always responded to my calls or text and that is key when buying a home. I have had nine, so I know how important that is."
Tyrone-Fairfax,VA (Buyer) Sat, 04 Mar 2017 11:41:01 +1000
"Tracey has been amazing! she has helped me through 2 property sales in a year and I'm not in VA. Tracey was so on top of every step and kept me and the process moving forward. I appreciate her calmness, persistence and helpfulness and I can not say enough good things about her. I would recommend her to everyone I know.
My overall experience has been great. I felt supported throughout the 2 sales, and Tracey Barret was the constant professional, offering above and beyond assistance!"
Erica Noon (Seller) Thu, 15 Dec 2016 05:11:48 +1000
"Tracey will not rest until she gets you the best deal possible. Her knowledge of DC metro real estate is unparalleled. I knew that with Tracey, it wouldn't matter that I now live in North Carolina. She would handle it all and I could be comfortable and relax during the process. And I'm not an easy customer. I didn't even worry when the HVAC died 9 DAYS before closing. Because I knew Tracey was there. I unequivocally recommend her to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell real estate."
Debra, former South Riding, VA resident (Seller) Sun, 16 Oct 2016 03:24:26 +1000

Jason & Stephanie Bock, Springfield (Buyer) Wed, 03 Aug 2016 10:46:04 +1000
"Our experience with Tracey Barrett was exceptional. Her team of repair professionals saved us hundreds if not thousands of dollars. She saved our closing at the last second by securing a last minute contractor with the knowledge to solve a complicated problem quickly and at minimal cost. Tracey was able to provide expert level guidance for every decision, gave invaluable input and advice and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. You can't find a better realtor."
Melissa, Fairfax, VA (Seller) Mon, 25 Jul 2016 10:04:27 +1000
"Tracey Barrett is awesome! She is extremely knowledgeable and answers questions with great detail and thought. We were lucky to have her in our court during this important process. All real estate agents should try to emulate her work ethic, integrity, and philosophy on home buying!
We also worked with Ingrid Barrett. Ingrid also deserves excellent ratings on all the survey questions as well. She is extremely knowledgeable and wonderful to work with!
Again, I would highly recommend Tracey Barrett to anyone who is interested in home buying!"

Tracey knows her business and how to apply it to each individual situation. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor!"

I would rate her understaning, patience, helpfulness, and approachability in particular as beyond excellent, and would gladly recommend her to anyone."
