“We could not have asked for a better person to handle the sale of our home. Andrea provided great advice that resulted in getting multiple offers on our home in the first couple of days on the market. Andrea was there with us through every step of the process from telling us the things we needed to do to prepare our house to go the market to evaluating the offers and closing on our home. She is the best realtor we have ever worked with. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.” Read More ▾

“We had a wonderful experience with our realtor, Rebecca Rushforth, and the whole Maple Ave. Living team. Rebecca made our home buying experience enjoyable, and it was evident how hard she was working for us during a time when the market was “crazy!” Rebecca was extremely responsive, always accommodated our schedules, and answered our many questions at all hours. On the very rare occasion Rebecca was unavailable, another member of the Maple Ave. team would immediately step-in to assist us or take us to a showing. Rebecca was able to find us our dream home, which we got for list price and with contingencies – something nearly unheard of in the current market. In addition to providing excellent, professional service, the Maple Ave. team also treated us as friends. They truly go out of their way to show appreciation to their clients (they also value the communities in which they work which and support other local businesses – amazing!). I would recommend Rebecca or anyone on the Maple Ave. team to everyone I know. We had the most wonderful home buying experience, and if we weren’t already living in our dream house, we would choose them again!” Read More ▾

“I would give Rebecca and Maple Ave Living 10+ Stars if I could!⭐️ They are truly amazing! Rebecca is easy to communicate with, so personable and generous with her time. She is responsive to all forms of communication including text, email, and phone calls. She has incredible knowledge and is honest with the information she gives you. She will never tell you anything unless she believes it to be the truth. She will walk you through concerns and explain everything to you in the most unassuming way. She also knows what "hustle" means. I haven't seen a woman who throws more energy, time, and care into her scope of work. Rebecca helped us sell our home in Oakton last month for top dollar and went above and beyond. Can you believe, she came over and helped me sweep my floors and wash my windows...what realtor does that??? SHE DOES! I had the most amazing experience with her and wish I could have taken her with me to help me find a home in Georgia. I honestly think she is invaluable. She's the type of person that you wish you could just keep in your life and make her your best friend.” Read More ▾

“We had an incredible experience with Rebecca Rushforth and Maple Ave Living. Nobody knows the Vienna area and market better than Rebecca. She listened to our needs, found our dream house in the perfect Vienna neighborhood, and arranged for us to see it before the house even went on the market! Without Rebecca's guidance and knowledge of the community, we never would have found this dream home for our family. (In addition to being a phenomenal realtor, Rebecca is a genuinely kind and amazing person, which means that she's beloved in the community and routinely knows of opportunities before they ever hit the open market.) Rebecca also did a fantastic job selling our previous home--she staged it beautifully, and it sold well above our asking price (setting a new record in the neighborhood). She was also incredibly patient in walking us through the closing process for both homes. Selling or buying a home is a daunting task, especially in today's market. But with Rebecca, the entire process was seamless--a testament to her tireless work and attention to detail. I cannot recommend Rebecca enough. If you are looking to buy or sell in the Northern Virginia area, she is simply the best.” Read More ▾

“Andrea is a top-notch agent with amazing customer service. She goes above and beyond to meet the customers needs, and made our home sale such an easy process. She evaluated our home, made some suggestions to help it show better, and had plenty of extra mirrors, pictures, pillows, chairs, etc. to help stage our home perfectly. She knows the market well, set a great price point for our sale, and helped us sell our home the first weekend we listed it. We had multiple offers, and she helped us evaluate them, understand the different terms, and select the one that was the best for us. She stuck with us through the move-out process, and even had someone we could call at the last-minute the day of our move to collect the extra garbage we decided at the last-minute not to move. She held our hands through the entire process and made it as smooth as possible. I have never had a better customer service experience and can wholeheartedly recommend Andrea and her team. Thank you!!” Read More ▾

“We could not have been happier with the experience we had selling our Vienna home with Rebecca and Andrea! Our house sold before it went to market and for well over asking price. We have no doubt that, while the market was "hot," it was the dedication of the Maple Ave Living Team that made the process not only super easy but enjoyable! Rebecca and Andrea think of EVERYTHING - from the smallest, most thoughtful touches to the a wealth of knowledge of real estate in the area. They had a perfect plan for us to show our home at its best and we always felt that they wanted us to be happy - not just as sellers but as Vienna residents who loved our home and our town. We are 100% certain that no other company would have worked as hard, as creatively, as enthusiastically, and with as much heart and professionalism as MAL. Forever grateful!” Read More ▾

“Stephanie is professional, diplomatic, creative, connected, and communicative. In our case, perhaps the most important attribute has been her resourcefulness. Our finished basement needed a few tweaks to be market-ready. She “had a guy.” Through her connections with a handyman, who was also very connected to subcontractors, we were able to address these items in a matter of days. And she made contact with her handyman. She did not expect us to contact him and make arrangements. When one of the subcontractors was late to our job, she got in touch with the handyman to find out why there was a delay. The contractor was at our property within 30 minutes. Given the struggles average homeowners are having these days with finding good home repair workers, then getting them to actually do the work in a timely fashion, it was a relief to have had Stephanie managing this process for us. She also had connections to buyers who were interested in our neighborhood. She gave us the option of offering our home to four prospects as a “preview marketing” opportunity. Even though we weren’t on the “open market,” we still got multiple contracts and over asking price for our home. We can’t think of a single negative to share about Stephanie and highly recommend her services. It’s a shame these reviews are limited to 5-stars because we would rate our experience a 5-plus.” Read More ▾

“Andrea and her team are amazing. They marshalled the process of our first purchase in this area. We have rented for 7 years and were nervous buyers. Andrea managed the whole process with ease and was a great negotiator on our behalf. We were very happy with the negotiated price. She was especially calm when our financing fell through only 2 weeks before closing. Andrea managed the sellers agent while we scrambled and found a new lender. We will not go anywhere else for an agent in this area. The process is so much more complex than we thought. You need Andrea on your side!! We highly recommend her and the team at Maple Ave Living!” Read More ▾

“Stephanie Hougaard is an incredible real estate agent to work with. We were lucky enough to sell our townhome and purchase a single family home with Stephanie by our side every step of the way. She was dedicated to helping us prepare our town home to sell for a great price. She helped us with how to best update and present our home. She arranged for staging that was beyond what I thought my home could look like. Additionally, our home buying needs were very specific and Stephanie did everything she could to find that home for our family. She was patient, kind, hard working and communicative to us throughout the process. Her customer service skills with us and the other individuals involved were exemplary. Stephanie is very knowledgeable in the real estate market. We are very grateful for her help on our journey.” Read More ▾

“Rebecca was so helpful in the purchase of our new condo. We were first time home buyers and she made the process so easy and smooth. She promptly answered our texts, emails, and phone calls. Her knowledge of the area, including home value, was extensive. I would recommend Rebecca Rushforth to anyone looking to buy a new home.”
