The truest benchmark of success in any business or profession is a referral from a client or customer. These clients have worked with Ron and heres what they have to say...

Dear Ron,

It has been a few months since the sale of my parents condo at the Washingtonian Tower.  I was going through the necessary paperwork in closing out the estate and felt the need to say  "thank you" again  in writing.

Thank you for the kind, caring personal service that you provided me.  Thank you for the wise advice and encouragement to do the needed repairs and updates in making the unit so attractive and marketable!  I know I was a little reticent at first to spend the money without a guarantee.  I am so glad I listened to your experience and did everything you advised

I am convinced now, especially in this market, that I would still be paying the monthly condo association dues had I not listened, or had I not been fortunate enough to have you represent me and providing your experienced advise.

I hope I can provide many referrals to you!

Warmest wishes,


Kristen & Terry
"Thank you for all your help and advice during the purchase of our new home and sale of our condominium. You helped make a confusing and frustrating process easy and enjoyable. Through your experience and guidance, every step of the process has been like a walk in the park. We found your step-by-step approach to the negotiation process to be most beneficial. Having your experienced voice speak for us gave us the leverage to negotiate with confidence.

When preparing our home for sale, we now realize how valuable your advice was to us. Once we completed all of the simple improvements you suggested, our house looked years younger. Hindsight being 20/20, I can say you were 100% on the mark. We were very impressed with your virtual tour presentation for our house and the brochures you created were first class! In all, this tremendously positive experience could not have been possible without your help!   

Thanks Ron!"

This letter is in recommendation of Ron Marcus of Long and Foster Realtors.  We recently worked with Ron to find our wonderful new townhouse in Vienna.  Ron regularly demonstrated his in-depth knowledge of the northern Virginia real estate market and frequently worked well into the night on our behalf, doing both with his customary good-natured humor.  This was evident at all stages of the process, from the search all the way through closing and beyond.  His professionalism was clearly evident throughout and carried over to his choice of contacts, such as the terrific title company he recommended.  Thanks to Ron, we ended up with a property that continues to please us to this day.

We wholeheartedly recommend Ron for others looking to purchase in the large and complex Northern Virginia real estate market.

"We want to express our gratitude for all that you did for Megan.  She was truly taken under your wing and you went way out to help her.  Thanks so much!  You were better than we hoped for and everything we expected from a class act".

" Ron did an outstanding job representing us both in the sale of our condo and in purchasing a single family home in Arlington.  He was a calming, knowledgable presence in what can be a stressful and emotional time.  He took on our goals as his own and gave us top notch service.  Ron was the ultimate advocate for us, both in getting the most from our sale and negotiating with our seller.  Thanks to his great marketing of our condo, we had an accepted offer in  less than a week during a traditionally slow sales period and a fickle market.

On the buying side, Ron did great research, weighed in on the big issues and prevented us from jumping in too quickly when we didn't need to.  Throughout the process, Ronn followed up on every detail and was a trusted advisor.  We would highly recommend him!  We couldn't be happier with how opur sale and purchase turned out".

"Ron, We truly appreciate your dedication and professionalism... you looked out for us as people as well as clients. Your personal touch went a long way! We will recommend you highly. We couldnt have been treated better!"

Rick & Hope D.
"I just wanted to let you know how happy Hope & I (Sarah & Clancy too) are about the outcome of the sale of our house. We couldn't have asked for a smoother more satisfying experience. We really do appreciate all the hard work that you've done to make this such a pleasant experience. And to think, I was once anxious about the concept of purchasing a new home before selling our existing home - how silly of me. I hope this helps you have a warm and fuzzy feeling about what you do for a living."

Hope D.
"Thanks again for all your hard work. I know its not over yet, but you have been wonderful. In fact, I gave your card out to those 2 people I told you about today. I raved about you to them. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"Hi Ron. This is just a note to say thanks for all your effort in my house search. Arnie, who referred me to you, really helped me out. You went above and beyond the call of duty. The listing Realtor was right; you are very good at your job. You will never know how much your guidance and enthusiasm has helped me. I would have settled for a crappy house if not for your knowledge, experience and personal good taste. And your charisma made working with you a pleasure. Thank you!"

Skip & Deb
"Deb & I were most impressed with your very smooth & friendly presentation, along with your extremely high level of class We thank you for all your hard work. We hope to work with you in the future."

"As a first-time home buying couple in the hot DC market a couple of years ago, we relied upon Ron for guidance. He gave us a heads-up on a house that we fell in love with on sight. The first day the house was listed, there were three offers submitted, and ours prevailed. If not for Ron's diligence and negotiation, we never would have been in a position to land our dream house.

When we had to relocate this year and put the house on the market, Ron knew EXACTLY how to price it - high enough that we'd get the value we deserved, and low enough to draw the attention of buyers and agents in this competitive market. Another home run!

24 hours after the open house, we had four offers to choose from, and we got much more than we expected. 1 house, 2 transactions, and 1 very satisfied couple. If we ever come back to the Washington area, we know whom we want to represent us. Thanks Ron"!
