"I valued the teamwork assistance of the Ostlund Team in providing us expert guidance and responsive assistance throughout the home search and purchasing process. They assisted us and were always available and present right down to the final closing transaction. In today’s high demand sellers market, the Ostlund Team expertly guided us in structuring our purchase offer that helped get us our home when multiple bids were offered. Can’t thank Penny & Charlie Ostlund enough for their exceptional assistance and guidance in our home purchasing process.
As stated earlier, Penny provided exceptional assistance and home buying process moved quickly and efficiently from our multiple home visits to the closing on our final selection."

"I would recommend Penny Ostlund without reservation. Having sold and purchased several properties, I can honestly say that she sets the standard. She provided worry-free service. She helped with staging our home to make it look it’s best. She listened and cared every step of the way. If you are in her service area, I don’t know why you would use anyone else."

"We were extremely hesitant to sell out home. Our previous experience, with another realtor, was horrific. This left us feeling defeated, fearful, and resistant to the process. When we decided to start looking for a new home to meet our family needs, we did not know where to start. A friend of ours recommended Amy Adams and said they had known her for years. When I first met Amy, I knew she was the one. She was the one in the same way that you see the love of your life for the first time. Amy was stuck with us until the end of time……or at least the end of the sale. She was everything a realtor should be. Honest, outgoing, wicked smart, and an expert in her field. Realty was her craft and she had mastered it with a passion that very few ever obtain. Amy has a personality that brightens the darkest of rooms. Her infectious laugh warms the coldest of hearts and you immediately know that everything will be ok. Even when things seem impossible, Amy finds a way. Amy was not just our realtor, she was our hype woman, she was our rock, she was the brightest light for our family, guiding us through what we only ever knew as a dark process. Amy worked with us for nearly a year and a half, as we struggled to find the right home. I cannot describe the level of patience that she had. House after house after house. Each time she had a smile, she brightened the room, and she helped us laugh away our stress. There are people that exist in this world who have an endless passion for their profession. Amy is one of those few. But it does not stop there, Amy has a passion for her clients and will quickly work her way into your family’s hearts for a lifetime. If my grandmother were still alive, she would place Amy on the Christmas card list and without a doubt in my mind, would get Christmas cookies every year. Amy is no longer our realtor, she is a friend that we were so incredibly lucky to meet."

"Benita's attention to detail and expertise in the area made the purchase process a very smooth process. Benita was very attentive, professional, and treated me like family, making my first time home buying experience an excellent one."
Dannys Rivera, Stafford (Buyer) Fri, 06 Nov 2020 07:23:30 +1000
"Mrs. Kay was very instrumental throughout the entire process, but actual attention getter was her attention to detail and the support felt while going through the process of the sale. She actually made me feel as though she was a second part of my family. All questions asked received the upmost professional feedback with details in writing. She was truly FAIR and HONEST and was always available. That was truly impressive. I've never dealt with any realtor of this magnitude. She's a "Mark of Excellence".
Mrs. Kay ensured that all inspections etc. were finalized in a very professional and timely manner. I as the seller only dealt with payment, which made the process a breeze. I would like to point out, even though we're subjected to a new posture during this Pandemic, Mrs. Kay was always prepared and also ensured the safety of "ALL" involved.
Mrs. Kay is and always has been very professional, polite, Great Personality, very patient, EXTREMELY KNOWLEDEABLE, and VERY TRUSTWORTHY. All entities of communication are very clear and concise. She's one to be emulated in the realty arena. Approachable, very respectful and speaks with confidence that ensured me I had chosen the Perfect Realtor."
James H. Cutler, Fredericksburg Va. (Seller) Fri, 06 Nov 2020 04:03:50 +1000
"Simply put, Benita is the best there is. She is a wonderful realtor and a wonderful person who stops at nothing to help her clients. We found Benita after doing a search through reviews on different websites, called her out of the blue, and couldnât be happier we did! As a military family moving halfway across the country during COVID, we were very nervous about the process of finding a home â especially because we were unable to make trips to Virginia to look at houses. Benita scheduled countless video walkthroughs before we moved, and then in-person walkthrough once we finally got to Virginia. She is honest, optimistic, communicative, and very helpful in explaining all the ins and outs of the home buying process. We always felt we could call or text Benita with questions, which was very important to us. Benita helped us find our DREAM home, and we never could have done it without her expert knowledge and help!"

"This was our second time purchasing a home and we reached back out to Suzanne Godin because our prior experience with her was so wonderful. She is an experienced realtor with extensive market knowledge and great advice. She is an excellent communicator and prompt with replies to not only us but our builder, lender, and title company. Our selling/buying process was low stress with Suzanne's help. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!"

"The Ostland Team ranks 10++ out of a 1-10 scale!
We interviewed and considered what we researched to be the TOP 3 Realtors at the lake, when after many years at Lake of the Woods, we decided that we would be listing our home for sale.
Dealing with Penny & Charlie was different from the start, and we realized in fairly short order - for MANY reasons — that this would be our ‘go to’ team for the mission at hand.
They saw much of what we saw, immediately, and understood, cared about & and quizzed us on the most important aspects of our engagement. All to be expected of professionals, but we weren’t actually experiencing the same levels of ‘know how’, clear honesty & integrity, and sense of urgency from the others.
They kept marching forward with many, many examples of doing things that were extremely helpful, totally shocking of just how much of that there was, that frankly had zero to do with our contract to sell the house with them.
We decided we had the best from the start, and the examples just kept ‘going and going and...’, you know the phrase ...and we can’t help but wonder if the Everready team met The Ostland Team long ago.
It always struck us as reassuring when we realized that our house was 1/2 the value of others they listed concurrently, yet we always felt that our listing was important to them...
We highly recommend them and will miss their extreme agreement with our political views ..."

"I immediately felt like family with Benita, she is unbelievably kind and hard working and puts your needs and happiness above all else. Her communication and commitment are outmatched by none.

"Ruthie was always checking in with us, seeing how we were doing during the whole process of selling our home and encouraged questions or concerns if we had any. She definitely put us at ease for any concerns we had and answered everything professionally, no matter how silly our questions may have been. We had total transparency from the very beginning and exceeded our expectations. I have never been this satisfied or impressed with a realtor before; I will definitely recommend Ruthie to anyone I know looking to sell/buy/rent."

"My husband knew Charlie from Lake of the Woods (LOW) Lion Club. This was a key decision on who we choose since they had already build a friendship of trust, knowledge and integrity.
Charlie and Penny did an excellent job from the first meeting to closing. Great communication and follow through. We rate them 10+ out of 10! The advertisement was well written. The photographer they choose to take pictures for the website did a great job too. Our house sold in one business day! Charlie went above and beyond to ensure our house was ready to put on market. Penny was very thorough on all the correspondence and answering any questions we had. They are a great team! We highly recommend! Charlie and Penny are the best real estate agents we have had though our many years of selling houses.
Penny and Charlie are a 10+ on all of these attributes. We highly recommend them."

"Kathy was sincere, is a great communicator and extremely knowledgeable. We were living out of state during the entire process and she kept us well informed. In our absence she checked on the house several times a week to make sure the folks we hired to paint, make repairs, and keep the yard looking great did the job right. The house was correctly priced. It sold in about a week. You could not ask more from a real estate agent. I highly recommend Kathy because she gets the job done."

"We have used Benita several times in the past and will continue to use her! The home was a difficult sell! It was located in an area where homes do not sell very quickly. Benita Marketed her butt off! She worked very hard to get buyers into our home. She made sure the buyers agent knew every detail about the details of our home before they arrived for the showing. she uses a wonderful photographer to make our already beautiful home look even more outstanding which definitely brought more eyes to our home! communication with her was amazing no matter how busy she was or how late I would call/text her, she had time for me. We got 2 offers on the same day, Benita did an excellent job negotiating and getting us top dollar for our home. We put her under a lot of pressure when we signed a contract on a new home and putting a timetable on when we needed to get our house sold. she stepped up to the challenge and knocked it out of the park and we cannot thank her enough!

"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."

"Jeff and Ruthie were the best. Our previous realtor experience was horrible and we dreaded getting back invovled. These two have changed my impression about realtors. They are rock stars!!!!
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!!!"

"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.:)

Thank you for all the endless hours of work you did."

"Kelly was the listing agent on a lot that I was interested in purchasing for the construction of a new home. Kelly went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure I was able to purchase the lot of my dreams. She was also willing and able to get a brief extension approved by the sellers, so I could meet the last minute criteria that popped up from the loan originator, and after I had full loan approval. Kelly also helped save the deal despite additional roadblocks that also occurred from the builders inattentiveness, unprofessional practices, and all around “sloppy” paperwork. It should have been a simple process and purchase, but that’s not the way it went all fronts. However, Kelly remained patient, understanding and hard working towards the seller and the buyers best interests to close the deal successfully with both parties satisfied and of clear understanding. I sought an extremely difficult FHA loan including three different parts (land, construction, temporary to permanent loan) with a “one time close” that I was attempting to secure. She only had to really had to deal with the sale of the land portion but did assist with the overall deal, so I could successfully get to the closing table and purchase the lot for construction. I will never forget her hand in the home that will rebuild my family. It will forever be appreciated!

"Debbie delivers such professionalism especially her knowledge of work to be completed to pass inspection. She is always available and never drops the ball. 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."

"Suzanne is much more than a fabulous broker. She is clearly an expert in her field, but more importantly she is a friend. Thoughtful, considerate, and willing to work off hours to accommodate a time zone difference, she showed us that we were taken care of every step of the way. I don’t know how we would have done it without her! Many thanks!
It was the best experience we could have hoped for. A breeze. Many thanks!
Suzanne is a dream. Highly organized, thoughtful and extremely capable. I had complete confidence we were in good hands every step of the way

As we started working with him, he was very attentive to our interests and stayed right on top of new (and potential) listings for us.

"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."
Mike Tanguay, Vacaville CA (Seller) Mon, 18 Jun 2018 01:28:41 +1000
"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 had worked with Kelly previously when we bought our house which we currently sold. During both times, she was remarkable. During the sale of our house, she went above and beyond what a realtor should do, on getting the house in remarkable shape to have the best outcome for a sale. She knew exactly what we needed to get from the sale of our house, and worked NONSTOP to make sure we received what we needed. She’s such a fun, loving, caring, hardworking realtor, who I wouldn’t chose any other realtor over her. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to Andy and I through all of these years!"

"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."

"Delaney Baily made the whole experience a smooth and easy as it could possibly be.
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."

"Kelly was amazing to work with from the very start. This was our first home and she was invested in finding the perfect house/location/property for us; she wanted us to fall in love and not just "settle" for the sake of settling. She advocated for us and she clearly has a passion for her career. We are very grateful for her. Kelly was like a walking google search of everything we wanted to know about our location and if she didn't know the information we asked, she found out. Above all of these important factors in Kelly's performance Patience was key! She never made us feel as if we were wasting her time, she answered all our questions, sometimes multiple times. We could not have picked a better agent to work with."

"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!"
