"With me being in a different State (CA) Delaney went above and beyond to make sure this transaction was successful. She arranged for lawn care, and gutter cleaning etc. There were so many other ways she helped me successfully sell this property. I was completely hands off and she took care of everything!"

"We purchased this property several years ago with Penny as our realtor. Since that time Penny and Charlie have remained engaged with us and helped look after our property. They have been there to answer all of our questions and provide information on all things local. There was never a question about who would be our sales agent when the time came. We are proud to call them our friends. Thanks"

"Our daughter recommended Ruthie and Jeff to us when we first purchased 144 Green Street. Two years ago we turned to Ruthie to place that house back on the market. After four months, Michael’s (husband/co-owner’s) father was diagnosed with cancer; and, we knew we could not move and provide the care he needed. This year as we started the moving process, Michael considered interviewing other realtors; but I knew I could trust no one as much as I trusted Ruthie and Jeff. Ruthie always remained polite, helpful, heeded our needs, became our friend, and IS the epitome of integrity. We are extremely grateful for her friendship, knowledge, grace, and professionalism. Would and have recommended her to others.
When it came right down to the administrative/business edge of the sale Ruthie was very knowledgeable and skilled. So much so that a few times we needed her to “translate” into a layman’s terms some of the language used in complicated contracting, and she was ALWAYS able to do so. She guaranteed we always knew what was happening and what was coming.
Ruthie, Jeff, and Amy worked together to make our sale as uneventful as possible. They truly are a close-knit team and helped us - they honored our interests thoroughly."

"Suzanne clearly understands the Locust Grove market and how to sell within that market. We got a sales contract less than two weeks after selecting Suzanne as our realtor. And at our price. Couldn’t ask for more effective result!
She was an absolute pleasure to work with and she always kept us informed and “in the loop”. I’ve sold seven homes over my life and Suzanne is far and away the best agent I ever had."

Couldn’t have asked for a better team. We received honest answers and they never made us feel that our opinion didn’t matter.
I appreciate being treated as a person and not just another sale contract. Thanks guys!!!"

Overall, a great agent to work with!"

"Suzanne was awesome! We could not have been more fortunate in connecting with Suzanne when we relocated from Indiana to Virginia, two years ago. She is a hard worker, dependable, and very knowledgeable in her line of work. She made us felt like we were her baby chicks and she was our mother hen :). She was always looking out for us and keeping us abreast of all the details, up to the closing. We would like for every home buyer to have that experience with their realtor.
Very Happy Homeowner,
Stan & Dorothea
Suzanne, we thought you did a superb job. We had no stress in purchasing this home, working with Suzanne. Thank you so much for the effort, time and commitment you gave in working with Stan and I, leading up and finally to the purchasing our home. Suzanne had our back every step of the way. Her advice and knowledge is top notch. Thank you, Suzanne for loving your job.:)

She knows the forms well and financial impact and communicates well which made this whole process effortless . She understood our needs and was there for us.
Realtors such as Debbie with her skills prove Coldwell Elite to be quality and a knotch above all other realtor companies.
She knows the construction of houses well. Our house was old and she knew exactly what had to be updated and communicated well how to do each task. She is right on top of it. She is very knowledgeable which made us feel confident and we felt she was extremely trustworthy.
Our experience with Coldwell via Debbie was extremely professional, genuine, and personable regarding all our needs."

"Ruthie was amazing...she did it all! Was concerned about a long-distance sale but she hanldle everything from grade to grave. She walked us through the entire process, gave excellent and timely advice and was very patient when we took the house off the market for a week to reconsider our decision to sell. We followed her advice and made $5K more on the re-list! During closing she led us to the best bottom-line offer and we wound up making more than we expected. She definitely earned her money but it was money well spent."

"I chose Suzanne because of her strong familiarity with the LOW community and market, attentive communication and follow up, and helpful advice as I was preparing my house for sale and deciding on price. She even helped me find local contractors I needed to get the house ready.
Suzanne was an effective advocate in dealing with demanding buyers and I felt she negotiated well for me. The market was soft and my house less than stellar and she worked hard for this sale. She did diligent follow up on every showing and kept me informed every step of the way. She made the process as painless as possible."

"We worked with Kendra Olinger of Coldwell Banker Elite Properties when looking for a home in the Lake Anna area. We told Kendra we were not in a rush but were looking for the perfect lake area home for retirement. Kendra's patience and upbeat attitude were constant through many months of viewing homes and property. After viewing a new build in a desirable subdivision, Kendra took us by a number of empty buildable lots and we found the perfect location for our future retirement years.
We highly recommend Kendra Olinger and Coldwell Banker Elite for your home purchase needs."

Her knowledge of the area was crucial and her marketing plan was even better than I had hoped for. Delaney was available for all the questions we had and put us at ease. The house sold faster than I had hoped for and we're pleased overall. I knew the Day I met Delaney she was going to be the one to get our house sold. Her confidence and forward thinking are commendable."

"Debbie Matalavage was amazing!! She initially worked with me to fully understand "what" I wanted by constantly asking questions and discussing options. She then showed me homes that fully met my wants and budget. She never wasted my time.
It took 2 weeks and 10 homes for me to decide on which home to make an offer. Debbie totally held my hand during all the offer paperwork, and was always focused on my success.
Once the offer was accepted, Debbie took control and made things happen! I closed on time with no issues.
I would strongly recommend Debbie Matalavage to anyone seriously looking to buy a home. This is a professional!"

John & Nadine Daniel (Buyer) Sat, 07 Oct 2017 05:12:13 +1000
"Delaney was probably the best realtor that anyone could ever have. We basically told her what we were looking for, a price range and location and she did the rest. But wait, there's more! The listing agent for the house that we purchased was far from positive. Delaney went to bat for us as if she was buying the home for herself doing things that I consider above and beyond her responsibility. She always made sure that we understood everything about a property that we visited and any potential problems or additional costs that may come with it. She didn't try to just sell us a property to make herself a dollar, she made sure that she sold us a HOME, that we loved and could look forward to raising our kids in for the next 30+ years. One thing that we really appreciated was her patience. I feel like I was more annoying than mosiquitos in the summer time when it came to questions about everything in the house buying process. There was not a single time that I felt as if I had inconvenienced her or asked a question that was really not worth asking. Delaney is by far the best person when it comes to finding someone to help you buy or sell a home."

"Jeff Edmisten and Ruthie Buck were professional and knowledgeable, and provided us with a pleasant selling experience. Jeff and Ruthie were both extremely accessible and returned calls quickly.

I would highly recommend the Coldwel Banker team of Jeff Edmisten and Ruthie Buck to anyone considering selling their home."

I was completely satisfied with her choice and will definitely do business with her again when the need arises."

"Garlene Daniels has numerous qualities that makes her a great agent, Coldwell Bankers is lucky to have her on there team. She started as are agent working for us, but ended up being are friend. I would recommend anybody that is selling a house or buying to use her. On a scale from 1 to 10. she is a 11.
As smooth as can be expected for a sale of a house. An are agent played a big role in that.

She has extensive knowledge of the market in the Mine Ru0n/Locust Grove area. She put together an excellent marketing plan and took care of every detail of the sale for us.

"Debbie went above and beyond helping Hank with the sale of his house. We weren't able to get down to Locust Grove that often living in Northern Virginia and I can't express enough how helpful Debbie was. She checked Hank's house since no one was living in the house at the time it went up for sale, made sure the house was clean when someone was showing the house, and was very professional, friendly and a person who Hank could trust. Debbie was also very helpful in giving us names of people to do any work that was needed to be done at the home. Debbie is an asset to your company and worth every bit of commission she received.
All I can say is I don't know what I would have done without all her help. Hank and I can't thank her enough. We needed to do some work on the home before closing and Debbie was so helpful in finding contractors to do the work needed. Debbie even went over to the house to make sure the work was being done correctly. Such a burden off of Hank and I with Hank unable to do anything, but to rely on Debbie.
If anyone wants to buy or sell their home Debbie Matalavage is the best!"

Penny's knowledge of real estate, and the market in the Locust Grove area were evident throughout the process. Selling our property, with its size and acreage, was no easy task. From the beginning, the Ostlund Team had the marketing plan to make the sale happen. Penny and Charlie got it done! We are so pleased!"

"In this day and age, time is the most valuable asset to the majority of people. We live a very fast paced lifestyle and there is rarely enough time in any given day. That is truly the case when it comes to me. I work 6-7 days a week, sometimes 10-15 hours a day. On those rare days when I am free, I prefer to spend them enjoying time with my family. When I made the decision to sell my home I was immediately stressed trying to figure out how I was going to fit that in to my schedule. Luckily for me I met Delaney Bailey with Coldwell Banker Elite. After our first 10 minute conversation I was completely at ease. She showed genuine interest in assisting me not only with the sale of my home, but doing so in a way that best suited my needs. Delaney gave me a full breakdown on the process, a realistic value to sell fast for the most possible, and best of all she delivered on her word. We had a great offer on the house just one week after listing it, I almost accepted. Delaney however encouraged me to wait and give her a little more time because she felt it was worth more. Boy was she right. A couple weeks later it sold for $10k more!! That alone proves my previous statement, it's not just about the sale. I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Delaney and her team. Thank you for all the hard work, I look forward to working with you again in the future!"

"Suzanne was always there, day or night to provide us with an update, a game plan, or a document to be signed. We did not have to wait on Suzanne for anything, she worked countless hours ensuring the sale of our home.
We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor. The entire process felt like we were working with a member of our family. She walked us through the entire process, listened to our concerns and answered our questions (day or night).
Suzanne is the best. If there is someone I would trust to help a relative or friend buy or sell a home, it would be Suzanne Godin. Hands down the best."

"We were introduced to Ruthie Buck via a mutual friend after we had talked to several other realtors and decided to let her and Jeff Edmisten represent us after the first meeting with Ruthie and Jeff. Most of the interaction was with her after that but she and Jeff went way beyond meeting all our expectations. She was the one that also recommended looking for a new house before putting ours on the market and provided excellent data to back up why that might be a better option but allowed us to make that decision. We had quite a few requirements in looking for a new house from internet connectivity to location to layout of house and size of lot and she set up searches to cover as many of those as possible (see my previous comment about internet). Ruthie was very responsive to our questions whether via email or phone and she walked us through and explained anything that we didn't understand. She also was very helpful in getting our home on the market and backed up her suggestions with reasons why the suggestions would help. Once we got an offer, Ruthie stayed on top of the offer and worked with the other realtor and provided me with help in getting a few repairs made to the house. That was a huge plus for me since I was able to rely on companies with a good track record than just pick someone off the internet. We would certainly use Ruthie and Jeff again in the future and I recommend them to friends and family"

"Because I knew Garlene, though not well, and she had handled the property of a friend, I was pretty sure I wanted to use her. But I did go on Zillo where they rate agents and saw that at the time she was the top realtor in the area. That convinced me to choose her to be my agent.
Garlene was always responsive to my questions or concerns. She was very encouraging about the fact that the house would sell. I'm sure she had several clients she was working with at the same time, but she made it seem as if I was her only client."
Debbie Wiegel Orange, VA (Seller) Wed, 01 Jun 2016 03:02:41 +1000
"Because we lived out of state, we relied heavily on Debbie's knowledge of the area. We also had to rely on her to choose an inspector, and to select and arrange for any treatments/repairs that were needed. We are very pleased that she was willing to take on these "chores" for us. After working with Debbie, we consider her a friend.
My husband had a stroke several years ago. Sometimes he has difficulty understanding and retaining information. Debbie was very patient in answering our questions and explaining anything we asked about. She also has a great sense of humor, which my husband and I really appreciated, as we hit several hiccups along the way."

"As a first time home buyer, Debbie Matalavage was great to work with. She was able to show me the houses I wanted to see, answer my questions, and, when we had issues with the closing, she was able to bring a sense of humor to the whole process. During this process, I was able to see how hard she worked not just with me on my home but with others too. I will be recommending Debbie as both a buyer's and seller's agent."

"Ruthie went beyond the call of duty during our house hunt. She brings a strong skillset in her area of expertise and is very knowledgeable. Her intuition was spot on....I began to lower my standards after a long frustrating search; however she did not waiver and kept me focused on the perfect house for my family. Her professional approach constantly exceeded our expectations. Her communication was timely, responsive, reliable and flexible. She was always committed to my family's needs . i.e. ( the sellers was being difficult and decieful Ruthie stepped in and got my wife and i the best bang for our "buck" ) Although we weren't her only clients....... she made us feel as if we were. Best Agent I've had by far.......I would recommend Ruthie to anyone buying a home in her respective area."
