About Bio:
The Secret to the Biggest Missed Opportunity for Homebuyers in any MarketLife is tough. Its tougher without a great real estate agent. Most home buyers make the mistake of worrying more about trying to find the right house instead of trying to find the right agent. The right agent will help you find the right home and can make your transaction as smooth and as beneficial as possible, avoiding costly mistakes in the process. No homebuyer can spend the next 10-20 years gaining the same level of knowledge and experience as a true real estate professional so leveraging a top agent''''s skills will save you an enormous amount of time, money, and hassles. 

You've worked hard for your money and deserve the best possible home for the least amount of money. Savvy home buyers know how important it is to take advantage of the expertise of a top agent to maximize the benefits of their home purchase.

Wether you are a first time buyer, relocating, or looking for a dream home, there are things Chris can do for you that most home buyers never get to benefit from. The reason is Chris doesn''''t talk or act like a sales person. He works as your personal home buying consultant who uses his vast knowledge of real estate, finance, mortgages, and home design to deliver a strategy and a plan that delivers the best possible home and the lifestyle his clients want and deserve. Chris helps clients and friends throughout northern Virginia combine their personal, financial and home ownership goals to achieve the lifestyle they want. 

Most agents drive around town looking for a home that matches what their client is looking for, hoping they will settle for what is currently on the market. The biggest missed opportunity in real estate is knowing the secret of how to create the home you are looking for.

Chris''''s clients have an advantage over all other home buyers in the market. Some of the things Chris teaches his clients are how to:

- Access inventory that other home buyers never have the opportunity to see.
- Double your money in real estate.
- Avoid spending years and thousands of extra dollars paying down your mortgage.
- Move in with equity.
- Get the most home and amenities for your budget.
- Use the Market Multiplier System and the techniques real estate investors have been using for decades to buy your own home.
- Take advantage of a little known government mortgage program to create the home and lifestyle you and your family want and deserve.

First time home buyers to luxury home buyers all benefit from the expertise and techniques Chris puts to work for his clients. His 100% positive testimonials show just how appreciative his clients are of what he is able to do for them.

The best part about benefiting from Chris''''s knowledge and abilities is that it is absolutely FREE to home buyers. Home sellers pay for real estate services, not home buyers. There is no reason why you should miss out on all the advantages Chris''''s clients are benefitting from. You deserve the best help in finding your next home.

Getting started is simple and easy. Using the orange "Contact Me" button on the top left of this page below Chris''''s picture, email Chris to say "hello" and include 3 things: 1) a brief description of your situation and the type and general location of the home you are looking for, 2) whether you have been pre-qualified for a mortgage and if so, what type (i.e. FHA, VA, Conventional, Cash) and with which lender or bank, and 3) the best email and phone number for him to reach you at. Chris will quickly contact you to get your home search started in the right direction. He''''ll take the time to learn the details of your home ownership needs and goals and will then formulate a plan to help you reach them.

"dianasmith407- Chris was absolutely fantastic. I have not enjoyed working with agents in the past, but my experience with Chris was absolutely 180 degree difference. He listened to what I wanted and worked very hard to find help me find it. Once we did, he helped me envision how it would become 'my' perfect home. Throughout he was friendly, responsive and helpful. And when it counted his negotiation skills when above and beyond what I had dreamed for. I am so very happy I worked with Chris and recommend him highly"

"julie joyner- MIchelle was very patient as she showed me a variety of houses in order to decide what was best for me. She was knowledgeable and able to tell me what might need to be fixed and why one house was priced lower than another, while giving me honest expectations in what to expect for house repairs in the future. Agent Michelle Nicely"

- Chris Ognek

"tinamlance- Michelle is truly an awesome realtor. She goes above and beyond to make sure that she understands your needs and strives to fulfill them. Her positive attitude is very refreshing and keeps you going throughout the process of buying a home. She made sure that we closed not only when we had planned, but a few days ahead of schedule! I will recommend her to my friends and family. Plus, she will be the one I call when my next real estate need arises."

- Chris Ognek

"bigalv10- My wife and I had a great experience with Chris Ognek as our agent selling our condo. Chris was very knowledgeable about our area, challenges with condos, and how to maximize value of our condo. When we found issues with our condo detracting from the value (not at all Chris' fault), namely excessive highway noise, Chris suggested a novel change in tactics to get the place sold with the maximum value. The resulting strategy started a sense of urgency and created a bidding war. Once we received all our bids, Chris recommended the bid to accept. Chris was also instrumental in conducting very tough negotiations with the buyer during the closing process. The buyer came to the table and demanded a significant amount of seller financed updates to be made post home inspection. We expected to walk, but Chris came up with a unique compromise that eliminated half of the buyer's request (the expensive, unreasonable ones), and for the remainder, suggested that the buyer split the cost with both agents (buying side and selling side). My wife and I didn't have to pay a dime! The upgrades were coordinated entirely by Chris and was done to the buyer's satisfaction such that we were able to proceed through settlement and closing without any more issues. What an experience! I don't know where we would be without Chris. Probably still stuck with our old condo"

- Chris Ognek

"zuser20141228141323554- We put our house on the market Monday, and we had an offer by Friday. We closed within 1 month at only $2000 below asking and were able to move on with our lives. As a military family with orders to NC closing quickly to avoid a double mortgage situation was especially important to us. We could not have been happier with Chris"

- Chris Ognek

"SeansHome-I needed to move quickly, and with specific conditions: acreage for my rescued dogs, and a single-story, move-in-ready home (for an elderly parent), within 20 minutes of a military base for defense employment, near animal and human hospitals, and a price ceiling of $300k. There was 1 ideal town in VA that fit the bill, and 1 home within that town during my timeframe. Chris knew my operating budget, deal-breaking conditions, and moving timeframe. I let him take it from there. Chris put me out front of other Buyers by negotiating a cash purchase, and then sealed the deal by negotiating a convenient vacate timeframe for the Seller and myself. Moving 2500 miles was challenge enough, but Chris Ognek made sure the perfect home was ready and waiting. Thank you"

- Chris Ognek

"PaulineJohnson9- Michelle is wonderful to work with. She is knowledgable, communicates clearly, and knows how to get things done! I had a very challenging situation and Michelle helped navigate and took care of every detail. She went above and beyond in many circumstances. I would choose Michelle again for either a sale or a purchase. She is simply the best!"

- Chris Ognek

gammgotgame- Michelle is the greatest. She is very responsive which happens to be a pet peeve of mines. In addition she very professional and customer service oriented.

- Chris Ognek

"zuser20140326184459566- I called Chris a ROCK STAR from day 1.... I knew then he had the touch and eye to get things done. Chris is hands down THE BEST realtor you could EVER have on your team. This guy did a pre inspection before the actual inspector came out... worked wonders for our negotiation leverage with the sellers. Chris was able to help is get our dream home, introduced us to our lender and together the team worked wonders for us. I've worked with a ton of Realtors over the years and never have I seen one as thorough and passionate about his profession than Chris. I recommend anyone looking for the real deal Rock Star real estate expert who has your back, who's thorough, who knows the in's and out's of the market... give this guy a call. You won't regret it... Chris Ognek is the REAL DEAL americans. I'm recommending any and everyone I even think mentions realtor, to Christopher Ognek!!!"

- Chris Ognek

"Brittanny Hoffman Lipkin- Chris was a diligent professional that was tenacious in his pursuit for the sale of our home. We were in a time crunch to sell our home after a previous agent didn't work out, Chris was able to sell our home in less than a month by aggressively marketing the house. This allowed us to move the house in the timeframe we needed without having to cut the price drastically to do so. A true professional that knows his craft well."

- Chris Ognek

"LyndsayMack Jones- The best realtor I have ever worked with. On a scale from 1 to 10, Michelle is a 50!! She went above and beyond, taking videos of homes, answering emails immediately, and having our best interests at the forefront of her searches and negotiations. A true professional."

- Chris Ognek

"Jaq2320- We are so happy with Chris! He helped us find the perfect home for our family. We were first time buyers and had no clue of what we needed to know or ask, but he was sure to answer any questions and gave us any information he believed we needed to know. He never pressured us and he was very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking to purchase in and not only that but also in things he saw wrong with the homes we were looking at. He was always punctual and patient with us, which was something we needed in an agent because as I said we had no clue in the first thing of purchasing a home. We looked at many homes to make sure we knew what we wanted and if he had to, he would rearrange his schedule to be able to meet with us. He made the home buying process a breeze compared to what we thought it was going to be. I would highly recommend him to anyone we know that is looking into buying or selling a home."

- Chris Ognek

valerieeaiken- Chris was a pleasure to work with and very professional. He answered all of our questions in a timely manner. He was also very patient with us and was not pushy at all. I would highly recommend him.

- Chris Ognek

"rnicely- Chris does everything with excellence, from the way he services his customers, invest in his teammates and the community, He is hands down is one of the most outstanding business owners I have ever known. I have known Chris for over a decade now and I know he is a person of integrity and character and in our world today that goes a long ways. There is no other place I would go for my real estate needs, then Chris and his team at Q Real Estate. Agent Chris Ognek"

- Chris Ognek

"zuser20140509133516153- If you are looking for more than your garden variety realtor (excuse my expression) Chris Ognek is the realtor for you, Chris along with his staff are with you all the way, the years of experience and knowledge under one roof is truly remarkable. There was never a question that could not be answered, if he didn't know for sure someone in his office did. With Chris you will always feel as though you are his one and only client. He is straight forward to the point, not pushy but always available to answer any and all questions. Yes this is his profession, but he wil always make sure situation is right for you rather than yes this is what you want (so he makes $). Chris along with his staff are available day and night, not your typical 9-5 leave a message, contact you during business hour's! I tried not to infringe on that, but knowing the option is there Was very comforting. I researched for about 6 month's trying to find that perfect realtor, almost gave up, then I found Chris ognek and was so happy that I did. In the future if I am ever to sell and or buy real-estate in the future or just have general questions he will be the one I call, have him saved in my phone on speed dial lol !! So to end from past experience interaction with Realtors no one has even come close to the experience I had with Chris you would be crazy to go else where, so if you are lookin for quality, attention to detail and knowledge then Chris ognek and his team would be your choice, if anyone can make it happen it's Chris he will always give 120%!!"

- Chris Ognek

zuser20160618171226290- She was amazing help. I knew nothing about the area and she quickly answered all my questions. Which were a lot. She went to all the homes that I liked and took videos so I can get a good feel of the area. Agent Michelle Nicely

- Chris Ognek

"hikerpilot- When my dad died last year, my sister and I took some time to go through his house and upgrade it a little. When we were ready to sell we interviewed 3 real estate agents in the Fredericksburg area and Chris was by far the very best. From the start he was professional and knowledgeable about the local real estate market. He made a recommendation about the asking price for the house and we took his advice. With a week or two we had an offer for full price. Chris sold our dad's house in record time for the top price. We asked a lot of questions about the buying/selling process and Chris patiently and fully answered all our questions. He managed the sale of the house, the inspection, the loan process, fulfilling the contingencies. We trusted his advice and he never failed us. He was just great and I highly recommend him and will definitely hire him again if I need a real estate agent."

- Chris Ognek

"Daspied-Diligence, experience, and charisma are the adjectives that first come to mind when asked about Chris and his team. He isn't your average 9-5 realtor, and on more then one occasion he was able to accommodate his busy schedule to ours. As first time home buyers we couldn't have asked for anything more. Start through finish, and then even after, Chris has always managed to make himself available to answer all of our questions while also providing insight on options we had never considered as first time home buyers. Insights such as a 203k loan, a 9 year investment payoff strategy, and the long term value/rental rates in the local area. Utilizing his experience we were able to negotiate more then 5% of the final price as credits. This allowed us to retain all the earnest money and not increase the total loan amount, simultaneously paying off the entire VA funding fee -- we were blown away. Rest assured we were in good hands, and you will be too"

- Chris Ognek

"TinaRamos5- Chris did a great job working with us from afar (Alaska). We compiled a list of 15 homes and saw just about all of them AND then our favorites the next day. The whole process went very smoothly and we couldn't be happier with him. Thanks, Chris!"

- Chris Ognek

"zuser20140506081320882- I Cannot say enough nice things about working with Michelle! I am an extremely difficult person to please and she did it with flying colors. When I interviewed her I told her I want honest opinions and DO NOT placate me. I also told her I am in no rush to buy and will pull an offer if there is too much B.S. She agreed to work with me and we got along amazingly well! She was honest (told me I would not be happy with a home one time), She fought on my behalf even when I thought there was no longer a point in fighting, she kept me informed about everything that was going on and even frequently checked with me before sending an email to make sure it said what I wanted it to say. Overall Michelle was AMAZING! I will honestly miss not talking to her every day. I hate giving 5 star reviews because I feel that sometimes people just go down the line out of ease but Michelle earned every one of them! You will not be disappointed if you select Michelle as your agent!"

- Chris Ognek

"user8855215- We wanted the best realtor in the area to sell our home, so we went on-line to see who people were talking about. One person's name was mentioned over and over as the one to call - Chris Ognek. We met with Chris and it was clear from the outset that he is a thorough professional. We signed on with him and he got our house sold in less than a week! That was beyond our wildest expectation! We don't hesitate about recommending Chris. If you want the best in the area, Chris is the one. Period"

- Chris Ognek

"wrober21- As many others here have said, Chris is a true professional and I was very impressed with the way he does business. He makes buying a home a relatively painless and seamless process and works with you every step of the way. Any time I had a question or an issue Chris either answered the phone immediately or called back within a matter of minutes and took care of it. When it comes time to sell this house or buy another, Chris will be the first person I call"

- Chris Ognek

"JeffreyWilliams0- Michelle was a blessing to work with. We are glad to call Michelle our real estate agent. This was my wife and I's first home purchase and it went as smooth as it could be, because of the effort put in by Michelle. There was no pressure to purchase outside of the price range we wanted, no being pressured into a sale we were not comfortable with, no awkward or uncomfortable feelings. Michelle had even made a recommendation to not pursue a property because she knew it would not be a good fit for the family, some other agents could have sugar coated it just to make the sale but Michelle has the best interests of the buyer in mind at all times. I have a hectic work schedule and she was very flexible on meeting times and quick to respond to questions. On several occasions she worked well late into the night or took time on the weekends that could have been spent with her family, to help my family accomplish our dream of finding our home. I would recommend Michelle to all of my friends and family who have even the slightest thought of buying or selling a house. If the time comes to sell the house or look at buying additional real estate I know I will be calling Michelle to make it happen."

- Chris Ognek

"Sparkle_yzf600- Based on a review from another out-of-state seller, I researched Michelle and found her talents to be exactly what that and other reviews said: AWESOME. I live out of state and needed a quick sale

- Chris Ognek

"ridgerunner94- Michelle was extremely responsive, aggressive, and knowledgeable regarding all processes involved. Her knowledge of real estate/building codes was very helpful in our purchase. Regarding the few questions to which she did not know the answer, she was honest about it and sought the correct answers from others. The sellers desired to have a very quick turnaround time to close on the property. Michelle's list of contacts allowed for prompt and professional service from all inspectors/title/legal personnel involved. Knowing her and her family outside of this purchase I can attest to her integrity and honesty as well. Michelle represented us well in the purchase of what might end up being our final home."

- Chris Ognek

"bob schrider- Chris represented us in purchasing a home and he and his team could not have made the process easier. His market knowledge, responsiveness, experience in buying older homes, and attention to detail are impressive. I also appreciate his business-like approach, and his ability to make things happen in a timely manner. His team, which included his title company, was very proactive in keeping the process moving. Chris handled our negotiations with the seller, and the rest of the process in an organized, professional manner, which helped to close the deal in only 3 weeks. Chris' entire team was a pleasure to work with, and I recommend his services highly."

- Chris Ognek

"marmor2- Amy helped us sell our property even though we live across the country from our property. She was very responsive, easy to work with and dependable! We highly recommend her."

- Chris Ognek

"malle050- As a first-time home buyer, I was overwhelmed researching for the right agent. However, I came across Michelle, read her reviews, and knew she was my agent. She was exactly as advertised. She was professional, extremely knowledgeable, honest, responsive, and friendly. The home buying process went smoothly. We easily found the right home. Best of all, her negotiations skills are amazing. The seller our accepted our first offer and even, paid our closing costs. I highly recommend her to anyone and I will definitely use her again. Agent Michelle Nicely"

- Chris Ognek

"nwtacket- We're thankful Chris and his team represented us during our first home purchase. He guided us through the purchase, and worked to negotiate an acceptable price with the seller. Chris provided an accurate assessment of the home's value during our first meeting and worked in our best interests from there. In the end, we saved several thousand, and reached agreement on a major repair that was flagged by Chris during the initial walk-through. Highly recommended if you're looking for a knowledgeable and confident realtor."

- Chris Ognek

"pscadence- From the very first time we met, I knew I could trust Michelle. She understood our needs and wants and helped us find the perfect home. She navigated challenging situations without causing any stress to our home buying experience. Even on closing day, she became our advocate and made sure we were cared for. I couldn't imagine buying a home with anyone else!"

- Chris Ognek

"jasonandlizcobb- As a first-time homebuyers, we had lots of questions, concerns, and fears! Michelle graciously and professionally walked us through the entire process, beginning with setting financial expectations for what we should expect to bring to closing. She helped educate us not only on what would be a good fit for our lifestyle/priorities, but also what home features added resale value for the future. She was available to go with me to visit houses usually in less than 24 hours of when I emailed/texted her. She was also very knowledgable about the area and neighborhoods we looked at. After visiting close to 20 homes/townhomes, we found our perfect house! Michelle coached us through making an offer, counter offer (there were multiple contracts offered for the place we wanted), and closing. She never stressed or pressured us into make a decision

- Chris Ognek

Pliboy84- Being a first time home buyer my wife and I wanted to find the right agent that would listen to our needs and answer any questions that we had. Chris was that person. Chris Ognek was professional and attentive during every step of the home buying process. He was diligent in inspecting each house we viewed. Giving us helpful tips on what to look for and what to stay away from. If you are in the market and looking to buy Chris is the perfect match for you.

- Chris Ognek

"wendysuestrong- HIGHLY recommend Chris and his team! I bought my house from Chris in 2009 but in 2011, life took me to other states and I am now living in FL. After having rented the house for 5 1/2 years, I decided to sell it, hoping the market was again strong enough. I thought being out of town would complicate the process but Chris handled it all for me--he even conducted the move-out inspection on my behalf! After discussing the condition of the house (he had taken pictures during the move-out inspection), he advised me of my options. Deciding for the as-is option, he handled all the viewings, keeping me informed every step of the way, and was able to get me a cash offer within 10 days of being on the market. He is definitely an expert on the market in the NOVA area and I trusted him every step of the way. If life ever takes me back there, he'll be my real estate agent again!"

- Chris Ognek

"zuser20150703174333214- Chris helped us to buy our current house. He has amazing knowledge of the market, inventory and all of the ins and outs of buying a home. He gives honest feedback on properties and if they are priced fairly. He is a wonderful advocate for his client. I would highly recommend."

- Chris Ognek

lebooker90- We enjoyed working with Michelle Nicely. She was very helpful and honest as we looked at home options. She never pressured us to look beyond our desired home budget. Michelle was extremely prompt with her responses as we had questions or worked through the negotiations. We would definitely work with Michelle again and recommend her to our friends. Agent Michelle Nicely

- Chris Ognek

"jeflowers1- In Short: outstandingly patient, very flexible, extremely knowledgeable, timely and most important to us, very responsive through either phone calls, text, or emails. I've already recommended Chris to a co-worker of mine. Chris was absolutely outstanding during the entire home buying process from beginning to the very end. He was very flexible for taking my wife and I to viewings and coordinating several homes in one day to make the most of our time. He took the homes that we showed interest in and also recommended some others. He is very knowledgeable, so there wasn't time wasted with homes that wouldn't be approved by the VA. He is also aware of the neighborhoods and local amenities. Chris is great and we still maintain contact with him today as he has a vast array of knowledge in regards to home purchasing, property management, and home renovations. Great Guy!!"

"danieli camille- I really cannot say enough good things about Chris. About six months ago, my husband and I began looking at a fixer-upper in downtown Fredericksburg with the plans to renovate it. Now, we are in a newer home in Spotsylvania and could not be happier. Chris was attentive and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. I believe what sets him apart is the fact that he is so loyal

- Chris Ognek

"swilliams310- Chris' knowledge and advice was very helpful to us, he helped us sell our previous property and with his advice we were able to build our first new home. Chris was quick to respond to our calls and text and emails, all of our questions were answered, and we will recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an experience realtor. Chris is your mann!"

- Chris Ognek

lebooker90- We enjoyed working with Michelle Nicely. She was very helpful and honest as we looked at home options. She never pressured us to look beyond our desired home budget.

"jaredmstacy- Michelle is a consumate professional, with excellent local knowledge, above-and-beyond personal attention. She sees the process through to the fullest. In our case, she was the sole agent involved in the process

- Chris Ognek

"chererapril- Michelle was wonderful! The process of selling a house was very stressful, but Michelle helped me tremendously remain calm during the home inspections and negotiations. The photos and video she had produced were premium. They really showcased my home beautifully. She was very knowledgable and available to answer my multitude of questions. I would highly recommend her services."

- Chris Ognek

"user3469827-Chris helped us buy our first home and we couldn't have asked for a better agent. He was always extremely responsive when it came to the almost endless questions we had. He has a thorough knowledge of the market and was able to foresee that we would be priced out of the area we wanted since the housing market was heating up, so he was able to find us a great place just outside of our area. We were even able to get more house with our money. Chris only had to show us a few homes before he found us one that was within our price range and had what we were looking for. He and his team were on top of the entire process from start to finish and went above and beyond what I expected. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home and get the most bang for your buck."

- Chris Ognek

"FreedomWarrior- Michelle took every aspect of our home buying process and made it easy. She ensured that we were well represented, looking out for our best interest each and every time. I would highly recommend Michelle."

- Chris Ognek

"jmtkmd- We had a very positive, successful experience with Chris and his team at Q Real Estate in selling our house. He was very knowledgeable and helpful during the whole process - from getting our house ready for the market all the way through the selling process. Chris was incredibly attentive to our needs: answering questions along the way, keeping us informed of each step, and helping us get everything accomplished to have our home sold much faster than we imagined. Selling our home went much quicker than our family had anticipated and Chris was exceptionally sensitive to the emotional processing necessary for the process as this was our home for a long time. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Chris for any real estate project need you may have – he is patient, knowledgeable about the market and process, informative and helpful for every step of the way and he really listens and helps you achieve the goal you are after – whether buying or selling your home. We consider ourselves very lucky to have worked with such a wonderful agent."

- Chris Ognek

"natalieralen- This was our first experience buying a home and Chris was with us every step of the way. He took the time to walk us through the process as well as explain the local market in a way that we understood. Chris was able to take very vague guidance from us and put together an exceptional list of homes, from which we purchased our first home. He accomodated our schedules and met us at locations that were convenient to us. Very personable and professional, I would recommend Chris to my family and closest friends."

- Chris Ognek

"shstps- We had a very positive experience with Chris and his team at Q Real Estate in selling our house. He was very attentive to the details of the overall process, kept us well informed of everything that was going on. After the initial two weeks of activity, when the first traffic slowed a little, Chris changed the overall marketing strategy to attract more prospective buyers. He was active in getting solutions to the items identified in the home inspection needing resolution. Chris was always available to answer questions regardless of the time of day or night. Having bought and sold many homes in the past, this was the best experience we have had."

- Chris Ognek

"agudelousmc- Chris Ognek of Q Real Estate has been an absolute pleasure to work with. As a 2nd-time homebuyer with limited experience and knowledge, he had the utmost patience and never pressured me to make an offer. He had a good grasp on what I was on the market for and walked me through every step, and you could always count on an immediate response -- regardless of the time of day. Chris is a true professional with a genuine interest in assuring customer satisfaction. Once we found the one, he took care of every single detail – making it smooth and stress free for me. Needless to say, I would, and will, strongly recommend Chris to anyone that’s on the market to purchase a home."

- Chris Ognek

nate3765- Great no pressure realtor that will work hard for you. We were able to see the houses we wanted to without feeling rushed and she took care of all the paperwork quickly to make sure we managed to get the house we wanted.

- Chris Ognek

"Leo Garciga- Michelle was awesome, understood my families needs and really knew the area extremely well. Worked diligently and around my wife's and I schedule while we were relocating to northern Virginia. Really understands the process and is willing to go out of her way to make things happen and find you the right home. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants an honest broker who can get you what you are looking for. Highly recommended."

- Chris Ognek

"randeb12-Chris was awesome, selling our home in 11 days, for more than we expected, at a time when there numerous homes in our neighborhood that had been for sale much longer than ours. He sat realistic expectations and marketed our house amazingly. He kept us informed during the entire sale, and took care of managing the process for us after we moved of town. I would use him again without question, and would highly recommend him."

- Chris Ognek

"zulu1010- I am trying to sell my property in Fredericksburg and cannot say enough good things about Chris. I found his name while searching the internet for an alternative to my current selling agent with whom I have little confidence. Chris was kind enough to provide me with a second opinion regarding an offer I had received. Within a few minutes, Chris inspires confidence. He listens well, is extremely knowledgeable, and has at his fingertips a number of helpful insights and suggestions which he is able to communicate clearly and effectively. Anyone looking to sell or buy a home in Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas, including northern Virginia, will greatly benefit tremendously from his experience, advocacy and sound advice pleasant nature. Had I known about Chris earlier, I would I would selected him as my selling agent."

"user80063841- Very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. Great attitude and really good to work with. Amy is also good at knowing what neighborhoods are good and which ones to stay away from. If we sell/buy again in the area, she will be our first call! Agent Amy Rowe"

- Chris Ognek

"dkolotos- Chris is the epitome of professionalism. He is helpful, quick to respond, experienced, honest, and genuinely caring. His knowledge of the real estate market in the Fredericksburg area is unmatched. His response time to basic inquiries and big worries never wavered -- he was on it! Our situation was a bit tricky and got more complicated than it needed to be, but Chris kept everything moving, helped us keep calm and made sure everything worked out in the end. I would highly recommend him to anyone. If you work with Chris you will be working with the best Fredericksburg has to offer."

"brittanynscites- Michelle was extremely helpful in the process of buying our first home. She told us exactly how it was going to happen and it happened just that way. She helped us figure out what types of houses would be good for what we were looking to do and then helped us find houses just like that. Our actually purchasing process could not have gone more smoothly. Our offer was accepted on the first house that we put an offer in on. Since Michelle has experience with foreclosures, she knew what the bank would be looking for in our offer and that helped us get the house. She was also extremely responsive and answered all of our questions honestly. I would highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking for a house, especially first time home buyers"

"Kelly- Chris was wonderful throughout the whole process. My husband and I were nervous about selling our home, but he made the whole thing really easy. Our house sold within 5 days of being listed and we received the asking price!! Chris is excellent at what he does, and we highly recommend him!! You will be in good hands with him and his excellent team!"

- Chris Ognek

"renee chek- Chris was extremely helpful and efficient in helping us purchase a home. We set aside a weekend to house hunt since my husband and I were living in different states at the time. After looking at a few homes the first day and listening to our comments, Chris knew exactly what we were looking for and showed us the perfect house the next day! He made the process extremely easy with his knowledge of the area and his ability to listen to what buyers want in a home."

- Chris Ognek

"armstrong32- Chris is an excellent realtor. He is the 3rd realtor we have used to attempt to sell our house, which has been on the market over 2 years. He did his homework and provided us a different alternative to selling the house. Although his method did not result in a sale, it did generate a lot of interest and traffic, which we had not seen previously. We changed our listing to sell or lease. Chris provided a thorough review of a potential renter to increase our comfort level to consider this option. I would put Chris first on my list of realtors and I have bought or sold over 7 properties. There were 1 or 2 times when I was waiting for several hours for a reply, but I am an impatient person so I maybe a little harsh in evaluating responsiveness."

- Chris Ognek

"SeansHome- I needed to move quickly, and with specific conditions: acreage for my rescued dogs, and a single-story, move-in-ready home (for an elderly parent), within 20 minutes of a military base for defense employment, near animal and human hospitals, and a price ceiling of $300k. There was 1 ideal town in VA that fit the bill, and 1 home within that town during my timeframe. Chris knew my operating budget, deal-breaking conditions, and moving timeframe. I let him take it from there. Chris put me out front of other Buyers by negotiating a cash purchase, and then sealed the deal by negotiating a convenient vacate timeframe for the Seller and myself. Moving 2500 miles was challenge enough, but Chris Ognek made sure the perfect home was ready and waiting. Thank you!"

"Chris Ognek helped us sell our home in Fredericksburg, VA. We were incredibly impressed with the service and knowledge provided by Chris. He helped us in understanding how to best present our house to buyers, when to list the house, and what pricing would be appropriate and realistic. Before listing the home, Chris let us know what we could expect and gave us advice on how to de-clutter our home so that it would appeal to others. He also made professional photographs of the home that made us want to purchase it again! During the selling phase, we received automated notifications regarding showing times, etc and prompt feedback from Chris regarding buyer feedback. When we received an offer, Chris gave us a very exact analysis of our costs, etc so that we fully understood what our gain/loss on the house would be. The entire process what extremely professional and smooth sailing with Chris. Our house sold in a much shorter time than we anticipated, and we are convinced it was because of Chris' expertise and valuable advice. Thanks Chris! We recommend Chris Ognek to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Amazing work! This was the most painless real estate transaction we have ever done - clean, simple and easy for us."

"Romain Picard- We live in France and have decided to diversify our portfolio of investment properties in the US by purchasing our first condominium unit in the Stafford, VA area. Because we are so far away, we needed to find a realtor whom we could trust and rely on to help us search for, negotiate, acquire and manage our first rental property. At every stage, Chris Ognek has demonstrated a true sense of honesty, integrity and responsiveness. Chris is more than a realtor. He is a true partner. We look forward to working with him on this first transaction and hopefully many others for the years to come."

- Chris Ognek

marine72781- I was initially going to purchase my home by myself in hopes it will give me leverage on the asking price but decided to get a realtor. We randomly found Chris and he seemed very nice on he phone. Within two outings we were able to find a house we wanted to purchase which happened to be a new construction home. Chris's team did everything they could to make the process as smooth as it could be. I see others talking about his responsiveness but you gotta understand he does have other clients as well but he would always get back to you that day. I would go back to Chris in purchasing a home or selling.

"kamurphy74- I was referred to Chris by a coworker who had used him to purchase her home and had nothing but the best to say- and I agree. I am new to the area and was unfamiliar with the options available with my wish list and what was available. Chris was able to answer all of my questions, give me great feedback and always stayed incredibly patient with me throughout my indecisiveness until I finally decided on and purchased my house. I can not say enough positive things about his support and knowledge throughout this process!"

- Chris Ognek

"carrollfamily0319- Our family is so grateful to have worked with Michelle in our move. Michelle was always prompt in responding to questions, always punctual to meetings/ showings and was honest when she felt a home may not suit our needs. I knew I could trust Michelle when she felt certain homes were not a good fit and knew she had my family's best interest in-mind. Michelle had a sale sign in our yard within two days and was constantly updating and promoting our home that was for sale. We had a ratified contract in 51 days thanks to Michelle's work! Even though we know this is Michelle's job we never felt as though she was out to make a sale, she always made us feel that she was truly there to serve our family and she truly did. Michelle would help hold my baby so I could look through the homes we were viewing hands free and even brought a kids DVD for my children to sit and watch in her van while my husband walk with the inspector at our home! She went well above and beyond for our family and I am so grateful to her for all her service in helping our family find our dream home."

- Chris Ognek

"mistercomposer- Chris was prompt, business-like, efficient, and was able to sell our land quickly. When we reached out to us, he immediately called back, he followed up, when there was a problem, he always proposed solutions. Would recommend him without reservations."

- Chris Ognek

"hilerga- Chris Ognek helped my wife and I find a perfect home despite tight time constraints (0-closing in two months) due to rising rent costs. He even helped us find grant money and a mortgage company that he trusts! His professionalism, expertise, and communication were above and beyond what we expected. At first, my wife and I set the itinerary with houses we saw online that we liked

- Chris Ognek

"Scb5252- I cannot say enough good things about Chris. We initially contacted Chris about buying a fixer upper downtown that we wanted to renovate. Six months later, we are in a very different home, yet we could not be happier!! Each step of the process was easy, and his expertise will only benefit us in the long run. I took the time to write this the morning after our first night in the new home, simply because I am so grateful to be in a home that we love. I could never say a bad thing about Chris and the experience we had!"

- Chris Ognek

"ReneeLeCompte- Excellent realtor! Amy worked hard to help us find our perfect starter house, and helped us over quite a few bumps and snags during our closing process with a VA loan. She's very knowledgeable on the area and quick with responses as well."

- Chris Ognek

AshleySiber- Chris helped my husband and I find our dream home! When we met he grasped quickly the type of home and area we wanted to be in. When we put an offer on the house we had a lot of issues with the seller to say the least. Chris and his team worked diligently to adapt to every new date change and monetary change and kept us informed the entire time. If we move I would only choose Chris to sell our home.

- Chris Ognek

"user0907495 Last year Michelle sold our home. We lived out of state. She made it easy despite the distance. Our home was rented and she worked with the tenant, buyer and us well. I would recommend her!"

- Chris Ognek

"Daspied- Diligence, experience, and charisma are the adjectives that first come to mind when asked about Chris and his team. He isn't your average 9-5 realtor, and on more then one occasion he was able to accommodate his busy schedule to ours. As first time home buyers we couldn't have asked for anything more. Start through finish, and then even after, Chris has always managed to make himself available to answer all of our questions while also providing insight on options we had never considered as first time home buyers. Insights such as a 203k loan, a 9 year investment payoff strategy, and the long term value/rental rates in the local area. Utilizing his experience we were able to negotiate more then 5% of the final price as credits. This allowed us to retain all the earnest money and not increase the total loan amount, simultaneously paying off the entire VA funding fee -- we were blown away. Rest assured we were in good hands, and you will be too"

"wendysuestrong- HIGHLY recommend Chris and his team! I bought my house from Chris in 2009 but in 2011, life took me to other states and I am now living in FL. After having rented the house for 5 1/2 years, I decided to sell it, hoping the market was again strong enough. I thought being out of town would complicate the process but Chris handled it all for me--he even conducted the move-out inspection on my behalf! After discussing the condition of the house (he had taken pictures during the move-out inspection), he advised me of my options. Deciding for the as-is option, he handled all the viewings, keeping me informed every step of the way, and was able to get me a cash offer within 10 days of being on the market. He is definitely an expert on the market in the NOVA area and I trusted him every step of the way. If life ever takes me back there, he'll be my real estate agent again! Agent Chris Ognek"

philandcha- It was a pleasure working with Chris in buying our new home. He was very patient with us when we were indecisive of our choice. He gave us his honest opinion when it came to the decisions we needed to make with it being our first time buying a house. I definitely recommend him to others when choosing your first home and we will be using him when it comes time to selling our home as well.

"rosa jager- We met Chris Ognek in 2009 when we purchased our first home, and we couldn’t have been happier with the job he did. Throughout the entire process he was very professional, knowledgeable, and very patient, therefore we trusted him from the very first moment we met. In 2011 he helped us in the process to obtain an investment property and he always advised us with what is best for us including the repairs. It was a foreclosure , so some work needed to be done , and we did most of the work ourselves following his suggestions. He also helped us listing the property for rent, we have a happy family living for many years. Chris also helped us this year to find a second investment property. He helped us with the loan process, and he was clever, this one was sold a is , but he negotiated and the seller did most of the repairs. He is also helping us with the repairs that are left. He knows the right people to do the job. He keeps in constant communication with us. For us Chris is a friend we can trust, we always ask him for any advice, he is always there for us. Rosa and Allan"

"4fourloves4- We were nervous about selling our home, since it was our first time. Right from the beginning Chris put us at ease. He was wonderful to work with and sold our home quickly. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy Chris made the whole process for us. We did not have to worry about a thing! He took care of it all!! He sold our house within 5 days of listing for our asking price!!!! We have already recommended Chris to several of our family members and friends who are looking to move. If you want someone who is the best of the best then Chris is the guy!!!!"

- Chris Ognek

"arcticdc5- Upon starting my home search in Stafford/Fredericksburg, I stumbled upon Chris' review and set up an appointment. After 14 months of site visits, pinpointing specific areas and analyzing each home down to fine details, I landed on a foreclosure purchase. It was a challenging task with communication from the bank and listing agent, but Chris was persistent in obtaining an answer for each item along the way. Closing went smooth and I am happy with the whole home buying experience. Chris will give you honest answers about the home, price, area and surroundings with no pressure to go with something you don't feel comfortable with. Best realtor experience I have had. Thank you again, Chris Agent Chris Ognek"

"karen lacks- I love working with Michelle. She has always returned my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. I wasn't able to purchase a house that I really wanted in the beginning of 2015. I have contacted Michelle that I am interested in trying to find another home in the same area as the one I had wanted to purchase. I am confident that Michelle will find the home I have been dreaming about. Michelle knows the houses in Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas that are for sale at my price limit. It doesn't matter to Michelle if I want a home that cost $100000 or $500000, she will work hard to find the perfect home for me."
