We followed Marie's advice at every turn. It was excellent in every instance and we're glad we did. ~ Amy M
Marie is an asset to C-21! Highest of praise for her, I would positively recommend her to everyone!!
The whole process was seamless and it sold in a day, above asking!! What¿s not to love about that?!!
Marie is very knowledgeable of the local area, did her comparisons and presented a successful marketing plan. Staging and photos were gorgeous. She¿s a true professional with a huge heart, a great agent who is now a friend.
~ Jan Richards formerly Centreville VA
I will highly recommend Marie Buonforte any day. ~ Vamshi
Marie was recommended to us by a long time trusted financial advisor. She provided her excellent credentials during our first meeting and mentioned that she was a military spouse and the mother of two West Point graduates. As a West Point graduate myself, that established instant credibility.
She carefully analyzed the home, the neighborhood and the market and made a recommendation on the asking price. She also recommended a contractor to spruce the home up and make needed enhancements for a speedy sale, and she recommend a relocation service to assist us in our move. Since we had been in the home for nearly 30 years, the relocation was a significant undertaking.
She recommended a number of upgrades to make the home easier to sell and we collaborated on the development of a timeline to complete our move and upgrade the home. She assisted in the process by coordinating with the contractor and the relocation service. She also assisted in the challenging process of getting the necessary inspections and approvals completed by the home owners association so that closing could occur without any issues.
From photographing the home to marketing to verifying the credibility of the purchaser, Marie was on top of everything and everything worked exceedingly well. The home was sold for asking price within 15 days of going on the market. Closing occurred remotely for us. Everything worked well and Marie went the extra mile to make sure that every detail was taken care of. She even checked the home and mopped part of the basement when the freezer started to leak. Marie earned every penny of her commission and then some.
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had her as our real-estate agent. ~ Allan Fehlings, Hamilton, Montana
Marie went out of her way to check up on our house multiple times after closing because it was sitting vacant for a month. She does her job very thoroughly and is an outstanding professional! ~ Becky Ban, Fairfax Station
Marie took our house from pre-market to sold smoothly and efficiently. She consulted with us through each stage, bringing in additional support (e.g stager, photographer), as necessary. She also went above and beyond to check on our house, ensure it was locked up and in good shape, while we were out of town during showings. We would highly recommend Marie and love to work with her again.
The three things that were important to us for the sale of our home were knowledge of the local market and community, a partnership approach, and ability to move quickly on offers. Marie handled all three seamlessly and we received multiple offers on our home on the same day that we listed. We received written offers the next day and we¿re under contract in less than 48 hours.
Overall, it was an effortless process. ~ Shilpa Agarwal
Marie always ensures that our interest is well protected during these transactions. Her advice in making the offer was key to having the successful bid. ~ Paul Dykeman. Ashburn
Marie's attention to detail was a key consideration in selecting her to represent my wife and I.
Marie had a great strategy to put our house on the market and review offers. Her suggestion to use a company to paint, refinish floors, replace carpeting and other cosmetic issues was key in the number and size of offers that we received. She was directly responsible for maximizing our profit. ~ Ernie & Janet Liberatore, New Bern, NC
Marie is the real deal in Real Estate. Totally professional and knowledgeable. We used her services to sell our home and purchase another. We made an offer on the first day of looking and closed within two weeks. In selling our house, we listed on Friday and had five offers by Sunday. Her sales strategy and execution DELIVERED!! None better!! ~ Bob & Lois Sinclair, Woodbridge VA
Marie Buonforte went above and beyond to help me find the perfect home. She not only understood my needs as a first time home buyer, she also understood me on a personal level and the needs of a mother wanting to find the best and safest home for her child. I cannot imagine this experience without Marie. She truly made things go as smoothly as they could possibly go. Marie has an eye for real estate. She helped what I thought was impossible become possible. Due to her hard work and diligence I found the perfect home for my son and I. ~ Alyssa San Juan
Marie was attentive, and accommodated our meeting time requests. She did everything possible to help our home to sell and gave us an excellent breakdown of possible listing prices with expected outcomes. She had the marketing materials done quickly, and the virtual staging she provided made our house look great. She worked fast and sold our house fast, exceeding the list price. We have bought and sold several residential and commercial properties and she provided the best service we have ever had. Marie did an excellent job and we are very appreciative of her talent and work! ~ Dirk and Pam Grove (Herndon)
This is my first time buying a home, Marie Buonforte helped me through the entire process.
Once I met Marie, I knew she was the right person to help me find a home. She is incredibly knowledgeable and very responsive, but she is also friendly and kind. I always felt Marie listened to my feedback and was never judgmental, she always made me feel like she had my best interests in mind. ~ Jessica, Stafford
Marie was recommended by my Aunt, and fellow Century 21 real estate agent, Kathi Amphrazis. I trust my Aunt's advice on all things real estate related and told her I was looking for a trust-worthy agent in the Alexandria, VA area. Marie Buonforte was the name given to me.
It was evident form the onset that I could implicitly trust Marie's input and expertise. The ability to rely on her judgement and honest opinion was paramount for me since I couldn't personally vet properties.
Marie Buonforte handled all aspects of the purchase due to the fact that being active duty military located in San Diego,CA under Covid-19 travel restrictions I could not be present for the selection, bidding and closing process. She was prompt with contact, forthright and straightforward, and willing to consider numerous properties. ~ Sean A. Donahue CAPT USMC
Marie totally understood my needs and took care of all the details. Every recommendation she made was correct. She even had a stager come in to help show the house to the best advantage. We put the house on the market during the Covid 19 pandemic. I was reluctant to list for fear of having no buyers. She reduced my fears and was completely correct. We had 2 great offers (over asking) in 3 days. Even after we had the signed contract she took care of every detail. This was a completely stress-free experience. ~ Dawn McKenna, Oak Hill VA
Marie was a rock star! Absolutely the best home sales experience we have had - and as a military vet we have moved a lot! Her great personality and tireless drive made it easy to work with her. Very responsive, especially given the coronavirus situation. She moved mountains to sell our home and close in 30 days!! Thanks so much Marie!! ~ Mike
Marie Buonforte worked diligently to sell our home. She came into a townhouse that had been on the market for 12 weeks and hadn't sold. Her market analysis was very comprehensive and helped us to better understand our market and the competition we were up against. She didn't sugar coat the reality of it, but she insisted that we could still get a fair price with a strong marketing program. She spelled out her program and it was far superior to any marketing we had experienced in the passed. (We have been transferred a number of times and as a result have bought and sold a number of homes over the years.)
I would recommend Marie Buonforte to anyone that wants to sell their home. She will design an effective marketing strategy, put in the hours to get it sold, and has the backing of other Realtors in her company for expert advice when needed. ~ Tracy U. Herndon, VA
Marie absolutely represented all that we would expect from a senior real estate professional. She knew every last aspect of her job, and she was continually coming up with ways to better connect with prospective buyers.
I again can't emphasize enough how much we enjoyed working with Marie. She was tireless and ALWAYS there to help us with any detail of the process of marketing and the final stages of closing on our property.
Marie's skills with marketing are equally matched by her network of folks in the trades to help with repairs, inspections, and making sure any aspect of closing requirements are met and resolved to everyone's satisfaction.
Have such patience, professionalism and maturity are uncommon, so when we sought her guidance on anything, we knew it would be spot on -- and it was!
My beloved and I can't more genuinely recommend Marie Buonforte for anyone looking to sell their home in Northern Virginia. ~ Bob and Jeanny Lewis, Herndon, VA
Marie made a difficult and complex process go as smoothly as possible. We had great communication and I felt we worked as a partnership in dealing with all questions and issues. After much consideration to the market, competition and timing, we developed a solid sales campaign and
the results speak for themself. The house sold for listing price in one week! ~ Felix & Deborah Morales
Marie provided us with the best advise to sell our house quickly for a great price. She was always available to us especially during the closing process where she stepped in and satisfied our buyers with some last moment requests. Would highly recommend her to any potential buyers/sellers. ~ Paul and Joan Wise
Marie was the best agent we have worked with...and we've worked with many. Great communicator, excellent representative of our needs and negotiated a fantastic deal. We highly recommend her. ~ Michael G. / Stafford, VA.
After interviewing seven real estate agents, Marie Buenforte was like fresh air.
Her approach to marketing our home, providing a stager and outstanding interpersonal skills made our decision easy. ~ Raija and David Vachon, Herndon, VA
Marie was on top of every aspect, all the time
Would choose her above any others for our real estate needs in the future ~ Tom Maffey Alexandria
Marie was especially attentive and helpful as our new home search began, and as we prepared to sell our home - we hadn't done any of this in 19 years and needed a lot of hand-holding! We appreciated her patience during our broad initial search, then her focus and diligence helped us to finally zoom-in on the the house that was Just Right for us. Marie worked around the clock to negotiate and ratify a contract on our target house in a very competitive seller's market, then she expertly guided us through the rest of the process all the way to an effortless closing. We couldn't have asked for anything better and would highly recommend Marie - she'll give you the personal attention + professional expertise you need for the emotional + complicated process of selling and buying a home. ~ Lisa Kearns, Fairfax Station VA
Marie has the ability to assuage fears, esp my husband who was not in the area and dealing with it all long distance..-) Also can be the hard negoiator when it was necessary. All so very helpful.
Marie has the personality and the determination to make it happen no matter what set backs or things come up...needed that during this ~ karen sielski, henrico NC
Marie was simply excellent, from beginning to end. She listened to my needs, researched properties diligently, was always on-time for site visits, encouraged me when two properties I was very interested in did not work out, and ultimately help me find the right home for me. ~ Joseph Mortati, Reston, VA
After helping us sell our home after less than a week on the market (after it had been on the market with another agent for over 2 months), we didn't consider using any other agent to help us with our home purchase.
Marie made sure we were exceptionally well educated throughout the entire purchasing process, from submitting our offer all the way to closing (and beyond). Marie worked tirelessly to ensure the we were able to buy our ideal home, despite many complications along the way. Marie is a consummate professional, and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. ~ Adam Wise, Centreville
We initially listed our home with another agent from a different agency, but when that agent was unable to provide the resources necessary to sell our home in a reasonable amount of time, we decided to research other agents. After meeting with Marie Buonforte and Art Hoppe, we knew we were in good hands with CENTURY 21 New Millennium. Marie and Art came to our initial meeting well-prepared with a recommended list price that was supported by numerous comparable listings in our neighborhood.
Because we initially listed our house with another agent, we lost valuable time in the summer market, and also the advantage of a newly listed home. In spite of these disadvantages, Marie did an excellent job getting a contract on our house in less than a week from our listing date with CENTURY 21 New Millennium (at almost exactly the price she recommended we list at in our initial meeting). Our neighbors even commented on how beautiful our home looked in the professional photographs.
Marie is a consummate professional who was exceptionally accessible (day or night) to answer our many questions during both the home buying and selling transactions, and possesses a plethora of knowledge about the real estate market in Northern Virginia. We would absolutely work with Marie again for any real estate needs we may have, and we will happily recommend her and her team at CENTURY 21 New Millennium to our friends and family. ~ Adam & Sheila Wise, Centreville
Marie Buonforte was very professional, had knowledge of the market and kept us informed as to changes to competing homes in the area. It was comforting to trust her with such a large transaction at stake. ~ Dan Maffey, McLean
Marie Buonforte was excellent. She anticipated problems before they arose and had solutions ready before we needed them. Her advice was useful and well thought out. She works hard to understand her customer's needs and concerns, and then works equally hard to meet or exceed their expectations. Would recommend her to any buyer or seller. ~ Tom Maffey
Marie helped me sell my fathers home in Herndon, Virginia and manage the complexity of my long distance situation since I live in New Jersey. She helped me avoid excessive travel to the house by stepping in to assist with home preparation tasks such as letting contractors in and moving some furniture that was in the way of the home inspector. She is thoughtful and strategic, offering well thought-out suggestions during the course of price negotiation and inspection. Marie has a friendly, professional manner and calmly deals with the inevitable surprises and hurdles that accompany most real estate transactions. I highly recommend Marie to anyone buying or selling in Northern Virginia, especially Franklin Farm. ~ Sue McGee, New Jersey
Working with Marie Buonforte was great. She was very responsive to my calls, e-mails, and requests to meet to view homes. She had not been in the door to her own home after a work day for more than an hour before turning around after a prospective home appeared on the market on a particular day to show it to me. That house is now my home, and I couldn't be more thankful for her customer service and responsiveness. Furthermore, she diligently explained documents and processes to me throughout, which was crucial to me as a first time home buyer. I would definitely work with her again! ~ Rachel L., Fairfax
