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.

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.

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.

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

- Chris Ognek

- 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

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.

- 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

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, Michelle listed my home and on day SEVENTEEN we were in contract. I say we because Michelle was with me every step of the way. I'm not sure if Michelle would represent me again as either a buyer or seller due to so many nuances but I'd opt for her anyday over any other. Michelle, thank you so much for your many extentions of kindness and intellect.

- Chris Ognek

julie joyner- MIchelle was very patient as she showed me a variety of houses in order to decide what was best for me.

Agent Michelle Nicely

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.

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

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

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

- 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

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

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, she truly wanted us to keep looking until we knew we'd found the house for us... and she wanted it to be OUR decision. We were looking for a smart, savvy and honest realtor who was willing to take the time to educate us on the process, and we found her! 2.5 months after reaching out to Michelle, my husband and I are all moved into our new home. Thank you, Michelle!!

- Chris Ognek

travel italy- Couldn't be happier--really!! Chris is a professional through and through and actually goes way beyond the call of duty. His expertise in construction and finances really helps put you at ease with his insightful evaluations of each home and suggestions where needed. We really appreciate the extended service and willingness to answer any questions and give helpful guidance well after the sale of the house! Thanks Chris for making it easy for us to trust you and enjoy the process! Agent Chris Ognek

- 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

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

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

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

- 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

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

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

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.

- Chris Ognek

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, she managed negotiations, connected us with recommended professionals, and explained the buying process in depth. Michelle does a great job making sure you as the buyer/seller have all the pertinent information, yet respects the buyer/seller decisions and works accordingly. We began our home buying process out of state, and Michelle began to do the groundwork even before we made our move. You could not ask for a better agent to help you acquire your dream home, or to see you through a transition out of the area.

- Chris Ognek

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.

- Kt Hlmn

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.
