She was available to answer all of my questions, as well as intervening on our behalf. She made life and the process very easy and simple for us by explaining everything step by step. I would highly recommend her to first time and return buyers.
We have been very happy with it and we love the neighborhood. You are so welcome to stop by anytime to see what we have done with it. we put beautiful hardwood floors on the main level, painted everything, and carpeted all the floors, including over those Ugly tiles in the basement! It has made a world of difference. Thank you also for the Gift Cards! They have been put to good use! You were wonderful to work with--please us us as a reference anytime!
We have used Dennis to sell 2 homes and to buy 1 home. You will not find a more responsive, helpful or hard working realtor. He sold our home in Alexandria (22309) in one day - he gave us expert advice on how to price it accurately and what needed to be done to make it the most appealing to buyers. Our sale had a lot of complex issues - and this is where you will benefit the most from using Denny. He stays on top of EVERY issue and is very upfront in dealing with them. His friendly demeanor and willingness to be fair and calm made every last minute issue or disaster go away. If you have any difficulties with your home inspection, difficult buyers or last minute crazy demands Denny will keep you calm and find a solution. We were stressed out several times when our buyers threw curve balls at us, and Denny did an incredible job of walking us through the process calmly. He helped us purchase an amazing home in Mount Vernon, which we love, by getting the seller to agree to our contingency and the price we wanted. He just recently sold another home for us in Fredericksburg, VA near Central Park - while other homes in that neighborhood have been sitting on the market for a very long time he managed to get us a buyer in 3 weeks. He stayed on top of every single detail until closing. I can tell you from experience that if there is any last minute problem, disaster or issue Denny will go above and beyond to fix it, solve it, and keep you calm during the process. We will continue to use him and recommend him to anyone else selling or buying a home. The other thing we loved about using Denny was that we were giving constant feedback and communication - our calls were returned immediately and we never had to request information.
Dennis is knowledgeable, personable, and 100% military-friendly! I am in the military, currently stationed overseas, and received PCS orders to Virginia. I linked up with Dennis by fluke while searching for houses online, and I am sure glad I did! He set me and my wife up with daily email updates for listings in the area we were looking (from Alexandria all the way down to Quantico) and advised us on different neighborhoods. After less than three weeks, my wife & I came across a listing we absolutely loved, and we decided to put in an offer (sight unseen…Dennis did his due diligence and even tried to talk us out of it!). My wife was able to fly to Virginia for the home inspection, seeing the house and meeting Dennis for the first time. I continued to communicate with him from afar, while traveling all around the Pacific. After a few counters with the seller, Dennis was able to secure us a great agreement! He was able to set everything up so that we could close without being physically present, which worked amazingly given our situation and saved us a ton of money in travel expenses! I definitely recommend Dennis to any service member looking for a trustworthy Real Estate Agent in the DC/Northern Virginia area!
Master negotiator who has lived in the local Alexandria VA area his whole life. I used a VA loan and he is very knowledgeable with the process. If you like direct and to the point, this is your guy. Thanks Denny for literally saving me tens of thousands!
Dennis was amazing to work with. Not only is he knowledgeable about the area, he helped us prep our home for our listing, and with our contract negotiation. He was patient and always available if we had any questions. Dennis will always be our first point of contact for any real estate needs and is the only person we would recommend to a prospective buyer, seller, or tenant.
We picked Dennis over two other well-established relators for four very major reasons. First, he was positive and calming from the moment he walked in the door; he basically said: "I got this, don't worry." Second, he recommended relatively minor fixes to the house though it could have benefited from a lot of upgrades (as the other's had pointed out and said were a must.) Third, he had extremely reasonable tradesmen who were immediately available to turn around the fixes in a really short time so we could get on the market. The four reason was pricing. We live in a slightly eclectic neighborhood that many people seem to value. The other realtors used formulaic comparables and wouldn't factor the value of the neighborhood itself into their recommendation. Dennis did. He recommended the house start on the market for a very significant amount more than the other two realtors with significantly less improvements. He took wonderful pictures for the internet with a quick staging at no cost us. Our house had a contract in two weeks which was amazing for a slow market in late fall. He took over and lowered the stress level from 10 to 1. He was THE best and we couldn't him more.
Denny was very good to work with all the way through our search and buying process. He was good at finding appropriate properties to consider and was readily available to show us properties and to respond to questions, and gave us good advice and kept us informed during the negotiations and closing process. Denny has a very friendly manner and a good sense of humor, while maintaining his professionalism, and that helped make what could be a stressful process considerably less stressful.
05M in Alexandria, VA. Denny has in-depth knowledge of the areas and provides an honest assessment of home values. He understands market fluctuations and adjusts sales strategies accordingly. He is very generous with his time and views his support on a personal, not financial, level. This makes him one of the most genuine people you'll have the pleasure of working with.
He went far and beyond expectations to provide us with the lovely rental our family is in today. We all appreciate the hard work and effort he put in. We would recommend Mr. Dennis Lee to our family and friends.
05M in Alexandria, VA. We purchased a beautiful new home through Dennis in the fall of 2014. He was energetic, enthusiastic, helpful and professional throughout the process, not to mention patient with us. Dennis responded to our many questions in an honest, straightforward manner, never pressuring us or trying to "force a sale." He displayed a great knowledge of the local area and a commanding grasp of the buying/selling process. After purchasing our new home we ended up using Dennis to manage the rental of our old home. Needless to say we have been very happy in that regard as well!
He sold our home within a week and walked us through the whole process from start to finish. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
My husband and I were driving cross country from Texas to the Virginia area to find a house to rent. We had three days to find a place to live. We called Denny to inquire about a house he listed and he immediately began helping us even though it was his birthday and he was running late to his own party! He was very knowledgeable about all the surrounding areas and helped with expectation management. He answered all of our questions regardless of the time of day and responded immediately, which we were extremely grateful for considering our ridiculous time crunch. He was very patient, never pushy, and understood our wants and needs. He was very personable and went above and beyond to help us out in every and any way he could.
He was extremely patient with us and not pushy at all. He fielded all of our questions and gave us sound advice. He was always available for us. He is a strong negotiator and knows the ins and outs of the real estate business. He respected our price range and did not waste our time showing us homes above our price range. He made the contract signing process virtually effortless. I can't say enough good things about Denny!
When Denny listed our property he used an on staff professional photographer and staging expert that made our home irresistible to online shoppers. When it came to the purchase of our new home, he negotiated a deal that was better than we expected! A few days after settlement Denny followed up with us to make sure we were happy, and that we didn't have any addition questions. We have never been happier with a real estate transaction. Denny treated us like he cared about us - not the commission!
