“Stephanie Hougaard is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. She helped me list and sell my home in Virginia. Stephanie helped with every step of the long process. She helped me declutter my home, take beautiful, professional pictures of, list it, and then work extremely professionally to manage a delicate situation. The buyers ended up being friends of ours with whom we wanted to maintain good relationships. Stephanie helped us navigate the situation perfectly--she worked tirelessly to meet our needs while helping us maintain wonderful relationships with our friends. She was extremely proficient with all of the many deadlines and details required when selling a home. It was a difficult home for us to sell as we had lived in it for 10 years and remodeled it top to bottom. It was also an emotional time for my family since it was the only home my 4 children had ever remembered living in. Stephanie took care of all everything so my husband and I could focus on helping our family transition to our new home in Florida. Moving is often a difficult, emotional time so if you're considering buying or selling a home, hire Stephanie Hougaard. Stephanie will work tirelessly to make the move as easy as possible for you and your family.” Read More ▾

“I honestly cannot say enough about Rebecca Rushforth. We met at an open house and she really made me feel comfortable right away. I was in the market for my first home but really did not know where to start. She made me feel comfortable right away. Rebecca was there for the entire process. She asked important questions and found a home for me and my daughters that was perfect- and premarket!! No bidding wars, just an easy transition. She knows so many people-including a handyman/painter! When you have so little time for trying to find the perfect home-Rebecca is the go to person! She is so caring and still keeps up with me and my daughters. 5 stars seems so little when compared to her hard work-I would give Rebecca and the entire Maple Ave Living group a 10!!!” Read More ▾

Andrew Dougherty

Buyer
“2020 was a tough year, and our family decided to purchase our first home. Andrea was remarkably helpful buying the house. She worked well beyond what one could expect, staying in touch constantly start from the house hunting stage and even after we moved in! I highly recommend her. If anyone needs a careful, loving, honest agent, Andrea will be our top 1 recommendation as a professional agent. If we buy another house in VA area in the near future, Andrea will still be our agent for sure!” Read More ▾

Buyer
“Andrea and her team are the best. My wife and I were so grateful to have Andrea be part of the journey for our first home. She is very responsive and always answered our questions with patience and professionalism (as you can image, we were first time home buyers, so we have A LOT of questions). She made the home buying experience way less stressful because she took the time to find us the ideal home and never rushed us into putting on an offer unless we are "absolutely comfortable." Andrea also gave us great advice when we made our offer and ultimately helped us to knock down the contract. She has been remarkable not just on day one but every step of the way. I highly recommend Andrea and her team! We will definitely work with them again for our future home buying/selling.” Read More ▾

“Andrea was such a huge help for us in selling our house in Vienna. We had a lot on our hands with a newborn baby and two other kids, but Andrea completely took care of us! She helped us stage our house and get it ready to list. We received multiple offers above asking price, and Andrea walked us through all the offers, so we felt confident in our decision. Andrea kept us informed throughout the selling process and was available to answer any questions we had. We felt very satisfied with the whole process and could not have felt more taken care of. We would recommend Andrea to anyone in the Northern Virginia area!” Read More ▾

“We worked with Rebecca to purchase our new home. She went above and beyond for us! She ensured that our inspection went smoothly and worked with the previous owner on our behalf. The pandemic hit and she didn't miss a beat. She ensured that walk through and closing were completed safely and quickly. Rebecca delivered boxes, meals, and so much kindness through this entire process. She is trustworthy and works tirelessly for her clients. She also has great contacts for contractors and handyman. We are so happy in our new home! I can't say enough great things about our experience working with Rebecca.” Read More ▾

“Andrea was lifesaver for us. After an unexpected move, she had our house cleaned out, painted, carpeted, staged and under contract in less than 4 weeks (without us even being there). She is incredibly organized and hard working. She had a clear plan for us immediately and we were kept in the loop at every stage. She is VERY good at what she does. We cannot say enough good things about Andrea and her team.” 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 ▾
