In June of 2016, we hired ReShawna Leaven to sell our house in Woodbridge, VA. We were probably one of her most difficult clients. We were going to hold out for the right buyers and we made that clear from the beginning.

ReShawna sent over a professional photographer/videographer and posted our house for sale on various websites. ReShawna and her staging partner Sharon staged my house. It never looked so good! She did numerous open houses for us at our convenience. We were only able to show the house with an hour and a half notice as we had a pet to get out of the house. She understood. She handled all aspects of negotiations professionally while guiding us through the process.

As a military family, if my husband is ever stationed in the area again, we will absolutely use ReShawna Leaven to help us with our housing needs! She is second to none! If you are looking to sell your home in the Washington Metro Area (VA, MD or DC area- Call ReShawna first!! - K. Bustoz of Woodbridge, VA

ReShawna is the best. She's knowledgeable about the local market and more than familiar with the NACA mortgage program. The NACA mortgage is a great product but it can be difficult, to say the least, to maneuver through especially when it's time to purchase. ReShawna was absolutely sent by the realtor GODS and made things as smooth as possible when dealing with the inspections, NACA, the seller, and my crazy ass (LOL). Nothing during the process was a surprise, she kept me informed every step of the way all the way to closing. I really appreciate her professionalism, patience, and willingness to travel 45 min to an hour to represent me, I was purchasing in the Baltimore metro area. - Andrea A of Baltimore, MD

I worked with Reshawna while looking for a house earlier this year. Reshawna is very knowledgeable about the NACA program and the housing market. Most importantly though, Reshawna is very honest. I have already recommended her to a few of friends looking for homes in the DMV, so she should be looking out for a few calls soon! - Meca P. of Washington DC

ReShawna was an amazing realtor and I could not have asked for a better experience in buying my first home. She is extremely fast in returning messages and answering any questions. I felt like she was always one step ahead. Any worries I had going into this process were quickly alleviated by my wonderful realtor. I would recommend anyone looking for a new home to contact ReShawna. I also love her website and social media channels as she provides a TON of information all in one place. Thanks ReShawna!!! - Nichole J of Clifton, VA

Reshawna was a delight to work with. She was always available when my husband and I had questions. She never made us feel pressured to make a decision on anything. She was a good listener and really payed attention to detail of our wants and needs. I would use her again and I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.  We found her to be very honest and caring. - Takia W. 

ReShawna is greatest! She has been our agent twice. Both times she found us just what we were looking for, most recently our first home, in a very short time. She helped guide us through the home buying process and was available any time we had questions. We would highly recommend ReShawna to anyone who wants a competent and caring real estate agent. - Lance E.

ReShawna worked with me for months on finding the right home. She was always responsive and answered any questions that I had or was unsure of. She had a lot of information about the DMV real estate market is very knowledgeable of different programs, especially the NACA program. I first learned of ReShawna from her videos on YouTube. She went above and beyond to offer as much information as I needed, especially with me being a first time homebuyer. She still provides me with advice even after the sale.  I highly recommend ReShawna as a real estate agent and would refer her to all my friends and family. - Tanisha W.
