Lisa was an absolute joy to work with. She helped me list and get an offer on my condo in just under two weeks! She helped me understand all the nuances of selling and guided me through every step of the process. She also helped my fiancé and me navigate finding a rental house at the same time as selling. Lisa set up tours and assisted us in communicating with listing agents to help us get the best deal. Even after we signed a lease, she helped us navigate a tumultuous move in process with our landlord. It's hard to imagine going through that without Lisa's guidance. Lisa always went the extra mile in everything she did and I would gladly recommend her to anyone!
We recently had the privilege of working with Lisa Parcells, an exceptional real estate agent, and we cannot praise her expertise and professionalism enough. From the moment we decided to embark on our property journey, she was a guiding light that led us through every step of the process.
Our parents had the pleasure of using Lisa's services several years ago, and the fact that her reputation remains as impeccable as ever speaks volumes about her consistency and dedication. Hearing about my parents' positive experience was a major factor in my decision to work with Lisa, and she exceeded even the lofty expectations set by her reputation.
From our very first meeting, it was evident that Lisa was not just interested in making a sale, but genuinely invested in helping us find the perfect property. She took the time to understand our preferences, needs, and budget constraints, ensuring that every property she presented to us was a potential fit. Her deep knowledge of the local market was apparent as she navigated us through various neighborhoods, highlighting the pros and cons of each location with impressive detail.
One of the standout qualities of Lisa was her transparency. She provided us with a comprehensive understanding of the current market trends, property valuations, and negotiation strategies. This level of openness made us feel empowered and well-informed throughout the entire process. Additionally, her communication skills were impeccable – always prompt in answering my questions and providing updates, making me feel like a priority client.
When it came to property viewings, Lisa's keen eye for detail was truly commendable. She pointed out aspects of properties that we would have otherwise overlooked, both positive and negative, which showcased her commitment to ensuring that we made an informed decision. This attention to detail not only saved us time but also helped us avoid potential pitfalls.
As we progressed to the negotiation phase, Lisa's expertise really shone. Her negotiation skills were masterful, and we truly believe she got the best deal possible thanks to her efforts. She navigated the back-and-forth seamlessly, always keeping my interests at the forefront.
The entire process, from property search to closing, was remarkably smooth, thanks to Lisa's organizational skills. She provided me with a clear timeline, ensuring that all necessary paperwork and arrangements were handled efficiently. This minimized stress and made the overall experience enjoyable.
My experience with Lisa was exceptional. Her dedication, knowledge, transparency, and genuine care for her clients make them an invaluable asset to anyone looking to buy or sell property. If you're seeking a real estate professional who goes above and beyond, we wholeheartedly recommend working with Lisa. She has not only helped me find my dream property but has also set a benchmark for the standard of service we expect from any professional in the future.
Lisa has been instrumental for me, starting 20 years ago when I purchased my first home in McLean. She provided end-to-end guidance and support and ensured I got the best deal possible. From there she has gone on to help me and close family members, including my daughter buy her first home. Lisa is a remarkable professional and an even better person. When it comes to making a decision as important as buying your home, I cannot recommend anyone else more.
Since 2016, Lisa Parcells has been our realtor for three sales and two purchases in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, and has helped our daughter and partner with several transactions. She has been a superb broker on both the sell side and the buy side. We have always felt she was a superb advocate, looking after our interests. Always quick to respond, always ready to find a “way around” a barrier, always able to explain often-complex technical terms in plain English. She is a joy to work with.
I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on the sale of my condo in McLean, VA. She and her team flew into action the minute I called her. I needed a quick turnaround as I was already in the process of purchasing another home. Within no time, my condo went into Open House mode and within three days it was sold. Lisa is the extreme professional and excellent at managing all aspects and details of selling a property and guiding the owner through the process. I could not have asked for a better agent and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a property.
Selling a house in McLean, Virginia, from Western Canada shouldn’t be hard, right?
As executor of my cousin’s estate, I had to sell her townhome once the property was emptied. When I interviewed Amy Davis and Lisa Parcells, their knowledge of the market and their enthusiasm was apparent. They came with a solid plan in mind for marketing this property, and I sensed they would be a great team to sell it for me.
With their connections, they arranged everything to get the property ready to sell—stripped wallpaper, complete paint inside, deep cleaning interior, purchased new light fixture, and power washing outside! The place looked amazing and was ready to sell!!
This listing went up on a Friday at 4 pm, and by early next morning they presented an amazing offer, well over list, no conditions, and 30 day possession! All of their hard work paid off in dividends, as this was the type of offer we hoped for.
Throughout the month before closing, Amy and Lisa were always available for any last minute details that needed attending. They were very responsive and made this process very smooth. The sale closed on time!!
I would highly recommend their services, absolutely professional and topnotch!!
We had the privilege of working with Lisa as our realtor when looking to purchase a home in Reston, VA. As first-time home buyers, we were really not sure what to expect or do during this process. Lisa did a great job educating us and was very patient, answered all of our questions and was with us in every step of the buying process. In a highly competitive market, Lisa stayed positive and hopeful throughout the process. She was extremely responsive to e-mails and was available to see a property at a moment’s notice. She was very honest and supportive. She never forced her opinions on us; instead, she gave us the space and opportunity to discover and learn on our own. Lisa was with us the whole time, all the way to signing the papers. She made it an enjoyable experience from start to finish.
We absolutely loved working with Lisa and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy their home.
It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I recommend Lisa Parcells as a real estate agent for any individual or family selling, buying or renting a new home.
My circumstances were difficult: I was tasked with selling a large home (at the holidays) and finding a smaller home to rent within a close time frame as my resources were limited.
Lisa helped me get my home ready to show in record time – recommending how to stage the rooms, getting the gorgeous pictures and brochures done quickly, and even helping to rearrange the garage!
My home did sell quickly (thanks to Lisa and her spot-on listing price), and without missing a beat Lisa showed me everything to rent within my price range (she knows the area like the back of her hand). I love what she found (it was not fully listed in the MLS but was coming soon).
Moving under any circumstances is challenging, and Lisa was upbeat, encouraging and gracious, all the while maintaining a professional integrity second to none.
I have bought and sold several homes but never quite as efficiently or painlessly, thanks to Lisa. I would recommend her highly and would be happy to discuss my experience in more detail. Lisa can provide my contact info.
