The truest benchmark

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
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!
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
I hope I can provide many referrals to you!

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!

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.
MayEllen & Dan S.
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.
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".
you did a stellar job! You have always represented me in a fully
professional and loyal manner...Your knowledge of the area market and
personal commitment to producing a smooth, professional
transaction...are not to be surpassed."

"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."
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
"THANK YOU for helping me have a
painless, quick and satisfying home buying experience!!!! You really
helped me win with the bid and the timing and everything. I loved it
that you pried open the busted lockbox. No bridge is too far for one of
your clients! 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
& 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."

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
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"!
you for making the sale of my condo such an easy process. I never
thought we could complete the process in only 3 weeks! You're great"!
