I've hired four real estate agents in my lifetime. The competition for best realtor isn't even close. It's Lisa. We were living in California at the time of our home search, and Lisa took care of so many details from Virginia, even showing up for an appointment that we couldn't make. During my visit to Virginia, I had narrowed it down to two homes. One was a townhouse, and the other a SFH. The SFH cost $50K more. Some realtors just want the higher sale--get it over with. Lisa reminded me, however, that the townhouse met more of the criteria that my husband and I had listed when we began our search. This is one realtor who doesn't make you feel like she's just in it for the money. She's in it to help you find the home for you. All along the way, she makes you feel like you're her only client. (You're not!) When the movers were delivering our furniture and couldn't get something past the banister, Lisa knew a handyman who could get right over to us and take it off. She knows locals who can respond to situations you might encounter in your new home. When we recently bought a new home, outside of Virginia, Lisa looked at the listing online and did not hesitate to point out the weaknesses we needed to take into consideration. We ended up buying the house (an old farmhouse that we love!), but we were more aware during the process because Lisa did not hold back on giving us the negatives about a home we were excited about. She is direct and honest, and there through the years. With Lisa, you get a realtor for life. Courtesy of - Kari MartiLisa R. GoodfriendIn the past 5 years, we have purchased two homes and sold one with Lisa. Without a doubt, she is the most amazing real estate agent you will ever find. From the start, Lisa takes the time to get to know you and your needs. She never tries to sell you something that isn't a good fit. Most importantly, she has your back throughout the whole process of buying or selling. Her knowledge of the market and legal matters is superior to most. On top of all this, she flawlessly handles your stress/concerns so you have a pleasant real estate experience. I love her honest and candid feedback, her communication/availability (she is there for you day and night, no joke) and the fact that she has become more than an agent to us-we consider her a dear friend. Thanks for always taking great care of us, Lisa! Courtesy of - Hunter & Randi - Woodbridge VALisa R. GoodfriendWe were relocating from out of state to be closer to our family. Lisa took care of everything. Her focus is client service. She understands that her clients are looking for a home - not just a house - and goes out of her way to find that perfect place. Courtesy of - Ed & Sandy - DumfriesLisa R. GoodfriendLisa has been our family agent for over 22 years. She has worked with my daughter, my son and myself over the years. We trust her expertise and knowledge about the housing industry and market there in the Northern Virginia area. Over the years, she has become our friend, not just our agent. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is buying or selling their home. You can't go wrong when you have Lisa working for you! Courtesy of - Janet, KingstowneLisa R. GoodfriendLisa was referred to my wife and I by a real estate agent in another state. Her reputation for her knowledge, service, professionalism and expertise is spot on. Lisa helped my wife and I find the perfect home in just the right area where we were hoping to live. We could not be any happier for having worked with Lisa. Her experience and ability to negotiate an excellent deal for our home purchase leads me to highly recommend Lisa for any real estate needs. Courtesy of - Anthony & Kathleen, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is a remarkable realtor! We never could have bought this home without her and never could have sold our old one. She handled my stress and neurosis with aplomb, even when I was driving myself crazy. She's honest, spins no tales and speaks the truth. Just what you want in what can be a very stressful time. So glad we worked with her! Courtesy of - Micah & Anna, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendLisa was amazing! We bought and sold with her and she was definitely my sanity at the most stressful moments. Lisa was very patient (it took us a year to find the perfect house) and always responded immediately to any questions I had. She wasn't just our realtor, she became our friend. Courtesy of - Ryan & Hannah, BurkeLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is an excellent realtor. There were many issues with selling my condo and she stayed on top everything even when she was on vacation. I highly recommend Lisa Goodfriend for your realtor if you are looking to sell or buy a house. Again an awesome person. Worked through all the details and issues that came up regarding the sell of my condo. She kept me informed on everything, even called me to let me know that the settlement finally happened today. Courtesy of - Marian, LortonLisa R. GoodfriendWorking with Lisa has been a pleasure in every way. We were planning a cross-country move from San Diego to the DC area. She set up a great search based on the amenities we wanted in a home, checked in with us frequently to make sure that the search was meeting our needs, and developed a great plan of attack for our house-hunting trip. She cleared her schedule for the entire 5 days we were in town to house-hunt, making it clear that she understood the importance of our time in the area to find a home. She planned a first day based on houses we were most interested in, and a few possibilities she thought might be good considerations. Lisa offered plenty of valuable advice about the homes, schools, and neighborhoods, while allowing us room to make our own decisions based on our taste. Once we chose a home, she helped us work on a reasonable offer based on multiple points of data. She worked very well with the seller’s realtor, and built a great relationship with him in order to ensure a smooth closing. The agencies that Lisa recommended (lender, inspector, title company, etc) were all top-notch, thorough, and timely. After closing, Lisa didn’t just disappear as some agents might, but continued to help us out with our move. We closed about 45 days before we arrived at the home, so she assisted us with several things such as carpet replacement in the mean time. We highly recommend using Lisa Goodfriend as your Realtor! Courtesy of - Chris & Monica, BurkeLisa R. GoodfriendI could not have asked for a more wonderful experience with a real estate professional. Lisa was so helpful during all phases of the sale process. I had to be out-of-town during much of the period my property was on the market, but Lisa kept in touch with me and kept me up-to-date on everything that was happening. I feel that she went "above and beyond" what most agents would be expected to do and I would most certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. Courtesy of - Cora, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is a great Realtor and I have been fortunate to have had her help over the past 7 years. Her professional knowledge and personable service made the purchase and sale of my house go smoothly without any surprises. Her full spectrum of real estate knowledge and human skills made my experience with her enjoyable and rewarding. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has a house to sale or is in the market to buy. Courtesy of - Brian, ArlingtonLisa R. GoodfriendSeriously, Lisa Goodfriend is the best real estate agent, ever. We were so blessed to have found her. She is professional, friendly, proactive, patient, extremely knowledgeable, and client focused. She did a lot more than she needed to do as our real estate agent. She went out of her way to help us and never complained or acted like anything she did for us was a problem. She made our sale and, frankly, our move happen (we had to move before our home/condo was sold and couldn't have done it without Lisa's assistance). I can't say it enough: LISA IS THE BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT, EVER! Courtesy of - Donna & Jerry, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendAfter having a bad experience with another agent, I asked my friends to recommend an agent to work with me to sell my townhouse. Lisa was immediately recommended and my husband and I hired her after we met. Throughout the process of selling our home, Lisa was present and her guidance through the process was wonderful. Having experienced the other side of the spectrum, her responsiveness and attention to detail was refreshing and relieving, particularly as this was the first time that we've sold a home. She made a stressful experience as smooth as possible, and was easily available and a prompt communicator. We would highly recommend Lisa, and have already passed her details along to our neighbors. I'm bummed that we have moved from the area and she can no longer represent us... Our new agent will have big shoes to fill Courtesy of - David & Rachel, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendLisa went above and beyond in helping us find our dream home and her negotiating skills are amazing. She was always looking out for our best interests. I am definitely going to recommend her to everyone I know that's looking to buy or sell! Courtesy of David & Beth, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendI worked for the DoD for over 30 years in Housing Management and know first-hand how stressful it can be to move around. One of the most important decisions you will make is finding the right Real Estate agent to advise and help you through the process. Lisa Goodfriend is that right agent! I first met Lisa through friends of mine while she was helping them to find a home in the DC area. And though she didn't help me with the purchase of my home, when I needed professional Real Estate services while I was stationed overseas, I contacted her. She helped me to find a good property manager and upon several occasions new tenants when needed. She worked diligently to find me the right mortgage lender when it became apparent I needed to refinance my home. So when it came time to sale - again I called upon Lisa. After just a few short weeks we received an offer and each and every time there was another hurdle to get through in order to close the deal, Lisa was there! She worked hard for me and she will work just as hard for you!! Courtesy of Ginger, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendGreat agent and would recommend her to anyone. She will tell you like it is and not feed you lines. Very honest and respectful and full of knowledge. She fought hard for me through the whole house selling process. Courtesy of Will & Lauren, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendIt was a pleasure working with you. She never hesitated to show the places whenever we wanted to. She had a great knowledge about the area and she was so helpful in finding the persons who could help us do the job and was all along our journey. Thanks a lot!!!! Courtesy of Kurien, AlexandriaLisa R. Goodfriend25 years ago, I met Lisa when I sold my first house and purchased my second one. No matter what time of day or night, Lisa was always there to help and answer my many questions. Since then, she sold my second house and helped me buy my 3rd. I've referred her to several friends and she did a great job for them too. A true professional you can trust to get you the best deal and if you're selling, get you the best price. She's very caring, understanding and takes time w/ each and every client, making them feel like they're number 1. Courtesy of Evelyn, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is wonderful to work with. She is extremely familiar with the northern Virginia area and is an expert when it comes to real estate matters in Kingstowne. We have purchased two homes and sold one home with Lisa, no matter the situation, Lisa does her best to make you feel at ease and helps you figure out what decisions are best for you. She is an expert negotiator and will help you navigate the buying and selling process from A to Z Courtesy of Justin & Jessica, KingstowneLisa R. GoodfriendLisa was great at finding us the perfect place to live! She was able to learn a little about us, to listen to what we wanted in a house, and to narrow down our options. She knew a TON about the different areas, the pros and cons, and found the right area for us. And, she was super-accomodating to our schedules when looking at houses. All in all, she was a huge help in finding us our perfect home! Courtesy of Dan & Samara, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is one "go getter" when it comes to moving your listings! I had her sell two houses for me and she went above and beyond to make them happen. She is most knowledgeable about the area and processes to accomplish the sales. They both went smoothly. I would most definitely recommend Lisa to family, friends, and associates. What an agent! Courtesy of Sharon, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendI am from the Washington DC area, and my work has required me to move in and out of the DC area many times. As such, I have now bought and/or sold 7 homes with Lisa, and I would not consider using any other agent. She knows the market, the trends, the prices and she always keeps your interests at heart. She is easy to work with and quite innovative/shrewd in finding ways to make thing work. I think she is simply the best. Courtesy of Patrick & Geri, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendI would definitely recommend Lisa. i found Lisa online when i initially started my search on buying a home and she responded quickly and answered all my questions as I was clueless on how to even begin and we started looking at properties then. Unfortunately, i was not ready to buy that year and let her know that i would follow up with her the following year, which i did. Amazing experience, she listened and knew exactly what i wanted and didnt want and went above and beyond to help me get what i wanted. After looking at property after property and making offer after offer, i finally found what i wanted and i got exactly what i wanted out of the deal and she was always so patient and understanding. For any future realtor needs, I will definitely be going back to her. Hope this helps! Courtesy of Jennifer, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendI recently bought a new home with the help of Lisa Goodfriend and could not have been more pleased with the experience and eventual outcome. Lisa was helpful every step of the way, providing excellent service and feedback throughout the entire process. She was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and fun to work with. Lisa consistently provided invaluable advice that was crucial for assisting a first time home-buyer. It is because of her expertise and creative negotiation skills that I was able to purchase my first home. Courtesy of Matt, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendI love working with Lisa, she helped me sell one of my investment properties and did a fantastic job, she managed the transaction from start to finish, she understood my needs and helped achieve them. She made the transaction easy and most of all I absolutely admire her professionalism and negotiation skills. She is one of the best agents I have worked with. I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs. Courtesy of Anthony, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendWe are so grateful to Lisa for guiding us through the process of selling our home and buying a new one. Thanks to Lisa, the entire process -- from start to finish -- went very smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a more professional, courteous, responsive, knowledgeable agent. Lisa was all that and more. Above all that, Lisa is a dear friend to us. We are so happy in our new home. We couldn't have done it without Lisa! Courtesy of John & Jeannine, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa worked with a very difficult situation in selling my townhome. After a failed 90 day realtor contract and a pending divorce, Lisa stepped in and kept the focus the sale. Lisa is a true professional and demonstrated the skills one expects from a realtor - consistently above the bar. Courtesy of MaryJo, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendI initially met Lisa Goodfriend when she was the listing agent of the first house I purchased in 2000. (not my realtor, but the realtor for the seller) From the moment I met her I was impressed with her insightfulness and honesty regarding the home buying process. Needless to say, when I was ready to purchase my second house I knew exactly who I wanted to be on my team, Lisa Goodfriend! She provided amazing support and research for all the properties we visited and when it was time to place an offer I knew it was the best presented offer on the table. Multiple offers were presented to the seller and ours was the one they accepted! I decided to turn my first home into a rental property and I, once again, asked Lisa Goodfriend to assist me. She helped me navigate the rental market and it was rented within 2 weeks! Since then, she has rented my property out an additional two times and all three times with respectable tenants. I have referred numerous friends to Lisa Goodfriend and they all have had amazing home buying/selling experiences. I continue to call upon Lisa Goodfriend for real estate questions and she is always there to assist me. I wholeheartedly recommend Lisa Goodfriend for all your real estate needs!! Courtesy of Joe & Ali, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is the best! I had worked with a realtor previously, who gave up on me and my list of "must-haves". When I met Lisa, she really listened to me and and worked with me to find the right condo. She knows real estate and all the requirements and walked me through the process painlessly. I agree with one of the other reviewers, that Lisa's communication skills are superior. She always responded to my phone calls and emails, almost right away, to answer my questions or concerns. She kept me updated with information about her schedule if she was going to be involved in closings or out of town. I cannot say enough good things about Lisa and if you are looking for a real estate professional, you will be very happy if you choose Lisa Goodfriend! Courtesy of Diane, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa goes beyond the call of duty. She is very personable, is a strong advocate for her clients, is experienced, and is proficient at her job as an excellent realtor. I would recommend Lisa as a realtor to anyone as I am confident that she will do a great job and find you the house of your dreams as she did for our family. We continue to contact Lisa as she has been an excellent resource for home-related referrals. We are very appreciative of her ongoing assistance and support! Courtesy of Sundar, Meg & Mya, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendI would never consider buying or selling another house unless Lisa is in my corner. Lisa has a firm understanding of neighborhoods in northern VA, has a keen eye, and understands her clients' needs. She listened to my specific requirements in a house and found one that checked off all of my boxes. I felt supported and understood during the entire buying process and in the renting of my previous property. Her communication and negotiation skills are top notch. I highly recommend Lisa to both buyers and sellers. Courtesy of Shaun & Raina, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendLisa was an absolute pleasure to work with! She quickly determined what type of home we were looking for and was successful in filtering out anything we wouldn't be interested in. We bonded immediately, it felt as if we knew each other for years! Once we decided on a house, Lisa made the negotiation process as easy as possible. She was firm with the Seller to get us what we wanted to agree to the contract. After the closing, Lisa continued to stay on top of the outstanding items until completion. I would be very happy to do business with Lisa and I will definitely recommend her when given the opportunity! Courtesy of Paul, Mary Ann & Steve, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendLisa Goodfriend helped my husband and I search for our first home. As first time home buyers this process seemed both scary and overwhelming! Thankfully, we knew we were in good hands the second we sat down to meet with Lisa. From the start she was genuine and extremely personable which made working with her a true delight! Lisa is intelligent, confident and knowledgable and she knows the real estate market inside and out. It helped tremendously that she was direct and to the point when it came to answering our questions and uncertainties. She made it her priority to teach us the many important details about home buying. This helped to ease our minds and made the decision process quite simple. Lisa has incredible attention to detail and was able to point out both pros and cons in potential homes, things my husband and I would have never even considered. She was open to sharing her own opinions and concerns which was a huge help to us in the learning process. I can't express enough how comfortable and calming it was to have her as our realtor. Lisa has become more than just our agent. She has become our friend - an absolutely phenomenal agent and we are forever grateful! (We've already asked her to help us in a few years when we are ready to upgrade to a larger home Courtesy of Lisa & Matt, SpringfieldLisa R. GoodfriendI have known Lisa Goodfriend for approx. 22 years, In that time she has found us three homes and she has sold three homes for us. What I look for in a real estate agent is someone who is honest, trustworthy and reliable. Lisa has been all of the above. She has earned my loyalty. If you are looking for an agent that has your best interest at hand, is knowledgeable and dependable you have found the right person. If I decide to sell or buy a house again I have no doubt whom to call. Courtesy of Sid & Patti, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendWe actually enjoyed looking for houses and it was, in part due to Lisa and her incredible knowledge of the area and the properties. It helps that she has been in the area, working as an agent for so long because she also knows the other agents and that allows her to help move the buying process along. We were so happy, start to finish with our buying and then our selling of houses. We recommend Lisa to many friends that are looking and moving into the area. Courtesy of Brad, Trish & Piper, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa helped me buy a home years ago and recently helped me sell it. I am grateful for her expertise and knowledge.

GoodfriendLisa has been our real estate professional for over 15 years. During that period, she has helped us sell two investment condominiums and to obtain multiple high-quality renters for four condominiums and one single-family house. She is courteous and highly professional in all aspects of her work. Most important, she "knows the market" when it comes to rentals or selling properties. We are already working on long-range plans with Lisa to sell four investment properties in the next five years. Courtesy of Gary & Olga, WoodbridgeLisa R. GoodfriendMy daughter bought her first home from Lisa about 20 years ago. Since then Lisa has helped me sell one home and buy another here in the area.

GoodfriendLisa was our Realtor when we purchased our home. She was fantastic and knew the area extremely well which helped us tremendously. Two-plus years later we are still thrilled with our house and location, especially with the new shopping center coming (which she knew about a year before a single hole was dug). We will definitely seek Lisa's assistance in our next home. Courtesy of Dan S - AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendLisa is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced real estate professionals you will find. She sets the proper expectations from the start so there will not be any "surprises" down the road. Her razor sharp attention to detail and her keen ability to negotiate on behalf of her clients is what you want when selecting a real estate professional to represent you whether you are listing or buying a home. Having Lisa in your court will give you the leg up that you need in our very competitive real estate market.Leslie WishI have worked with Lisa a couple of times over the past 5 years. Each time she delivers beyond expectations. She is very knowledgeable about what she does and she always has advise on how I need to proceed. She knows her industry and the area and she will help you accomplish your needs. I have worked with her to rent a property and to buy properties. She is the best!! Courtesy of Kirstin, AlexandriaLisa R. GoodfriendI am honored to recommend Lisa Goodfriend. For as long as I've known her, I've been impressed with her professionalism and real estate knowledge. We began working together in 2016 and everyone in my office has been extremely impressed with the way she handles her business. She really understand the ins and outs of the industry.
