Congratulations to our Reston clients!

“We want one of the penthouses at the Midtown at Reston Town Center” was the request from one of our buyers about a month ago.  The issue was that no penthouse units were available for sale.  While your average agent would sit back and wait for something to be listed, we took a different approach.

After personalized letters to every penthouse owner in the building, and dozens of phone calls to our own personal network, we identified a prospective seller whose family has outgrown their space and was considering moving on. Two weeks later, we’re under contract and passed inspections, closing in May.  This represents the highest sale in Reston year-to-date.

To realize your goals, your strategy matters.  When our clients choose to work with us, they receive our full commitment 100%.  We would be honored and excited to work with you.  Message us today to start the conversation.

Warm congratulations to our clients! Settlement Day

It’s been a busy month at Jason Mandel Real Estate, and we believe it’s important to pause and thank our exceptional clients for entrusting us with the sale of their homes.

First, to our seller and longtime friend & mentor, of 1442 Harvest Crossing Drive in McLean.  The average days-on-market in the gated community in Evans Farm is 154, and we were delighted to bring an all-cash offer in just seven days.  Further, the seller is a retired Realtor with 30+ years experience and was the top individual agent nationwide for Coldwell Banker over a period of years and whose daughter is a top broker with Sotheby’s International Realty in New York.  Experts place their trust in experts.

Second, to our new partners at Reel Homes, congratulations on the settlement of 1404 Cottage Street SW in Vienna, VA.  This home was on the market with another broker for 58 days before the sellers decided to retain us.  We listed it for $20,000 higher than before, brought them multiple offers in 4 days, and sold it for $9,000 above the new asking price.
