"Thank you very much for an exceptionally wonderful experience selling our condo in a challenging market. We appreciate your professional expertise, your completely accurate advice, and your thorough, detailed attention to every aspect of the sale of our condo. Who would have thought that we would have our condo on the market for less than two weeks, have 4 offers, AND get our asking price during the global financial crisis in the Fall of 2008! And you are very nice people and delightful to work with."

"I had bought and sold houses all across the country, but that was some time ago. I watched with curiosity as Alix worked with a friend who was selling her house. She knew exactly what had to be done to make the sale in this difficult market--some repairs and a good bit of sprucing-up, not to mention, clearing out. Minimalism seems to sell, even to buyers who like busy abundance in their own homes.
After observing this process, enlisting Alix to sell a condominium which was part of an estate in which I was involved, was a no-brainer. Her expertise in pricing correctly and marketing in this tech savvy world puts her way ahead of colleagues who fail to understand the changes in marketing that have occurred in these past few years. She was able to sell the condo in just 90 days while several other condominiums in the building remained on the market including another with an identical layout, a testament to their expertise and understanding of the condominium market in the metro region. This decision to select Alix Myerson proved to be a wise one."
"Alix is dynamic with fabulous ideas. She knew how to show off my home and priced it perfectly! Her advice and support helped me turn my overstuffed Mt. Pleasant row house into a show place. In a tight market, my house sold in 10 days, with multiple offers, for more than the asking price. I couldn’t believe selling a house could be so smooth, easy and successful! "
"Insightful, creative, thorough, and occasionally "a pain in the butt" is how I would describe my experience with Alix. She developed an exciting virtual tour of the house which was all over the web. My friends couldn’t believe how glamorous it looked and I almost decided not to move. She also created a showroom, yet homey, atmosphere for the Open House. In a very tough, declining market she got it sold in under three weeks. In a phrase, a delightful experience."
"Here is a long overdue big thank you for all of your assistance
in helping me sell my condo in DC this past summer! You were wonderful,
from the professional photos and selling strategy at the beginning of the process,
through the marketing on MLS, Craigslist, and open houses, and finally to the
quick and easy sell. You took it even a step further by assisting in my
move, as I had to leave town before my condo was sold. You were just amazing
in helping me coordinate both an out-of-town closing and supervising the movers.
I was especially relieved to have my condo sold so quickly in this market. You
are fun to work with and extremely professional. Having worked with you
when I first bought my condo, you know I will happily recommend your services
to my friends who are in the market to either buy or sell in the DC area."
"After I moved here from California, Alix assisted
me with the purchase of my home in Alexandria, Virginia. As this was not my
first home purchase, I was generally familiar with the process, but completely
unfamiliar with the various neighborhoods here in Virginia. As I wanted to look
at and become familiar with several neighborhoods before focusing on one or
two, Alix not only showed me more than 100 homes in Arlington, Fairfax
County and Alexandria City, she also provided me information on hundreds more.
Alix spent a great deal of time with me and never pressured
me to buy something, and had a wealth of knowledge about the process in Virginia.
And, to my great delight, I enjoyed spending time with her. In short, Alix
is the rare combination of 'excellent and knowledgeable resources'
and 'wonderful and fun'. I would recommend them to anyone."
"A tag team of helpfulness and spot-on advice! They know the local real
estate market inside and out. First-time buyers like us are easily overwhelmed
by the size of the market and the complexities. They spent lots of time with
us, helped us figure out what we wanted and made sure we got what we wanted
- at the best price. They made sure everything was taken care of, from start
to finish. They are an absolute pleasure to deal with."
"Buying a home can be an overwhelming experience. When Alix began working
with me, she helped clarify for the benefits of purchasing a home versus renting
an apartment in an extremely lucid and comprehendible way. I had been a renter
for four years and didn't feel I was able to make a financial commitment to
owning a home. She showed me that it was quite possible, and then helped me
find the space of my dreams. She scoured the district with me, never pushing
me, never being overly aggressive with me, but rather making sure I felt comfortable.
I find Alix realistic, pragmatic, hopeful and full of wisdom and expertise
in her field. She was a consummate professional throughout my time with her
and truly went above and beyond the call of duty with my extremely complicated
settlement and difficult first few months of ownership. I recommend Alix highly
to all of my friends who are looking to purchase a home and will continue
to spread the good word about Alix Myerson!"

"When my husband and I moved to Georgia recently, we were faced with
the prospect of selling our house in Rockville, MD. Frankly, we were dreading
it. Previous experiences in selling real estate have been stressful and unpleasant.
What a pleasant surprise it was to work with Alix. From our first meeting
with her, Alix took our stress level down to zero. She arranged for cosmetic
improvements to help our house show at its best, and scheduled an open house
immediately thereafter. She recommended an asking price which she said would
bring in the most prospective buyers. Her advice was sound. When the open
house was over, she presented a dozen contracts, all of which were for considerably
more than the asking price. Through skillful negotiation, she got us the very
best contract both in selling price and terms, and all within just a few days.
We were delighted. I can't tell you how pleased we were with every aspect
of her services. If any of our friends in the DC area plan to sell a house,
we will certainly recommend her."
"Alix assisted me with both the purchase of my home in Takoma Park,
Maryland. Further, she
served as an excellent resource for tips and contacts related to home improvement,
maintenance, and refusing throughout my tenure in Takoma Park. What is particularly
special about Alix Myerson is her sense of personal commitment and involvement.
During both the purchase and sale of my home, Alix spent countless hours explaining
the process, delivering documents to me at work, arranging services and scheduling
appointments - essentially providing me with the attention that is truly warranted
during property transactions, but which, I imagine, most people do not get
to experience. She was always informed, forthright and honest about everything,
and to such a point that I felt absolutely at ease (if not relieved) having
Alix handle the details of the closing when I had to make a quick move to
San Francisco for a change in my employment."
"As a young, female first-time home-buyer the entire process
intimidated me and all of the other realtors I had met made me feel uncomfortable
and pressured. Alix made me feel like family. She took the time
to explain even the simplest details to me, and was patient enough to show
me apartments for months before I found just the right one. I didn't just
find a home with my realtor, I found a new close friend who I know I can
"Aelita and Alix aren't just realtors --- they're gifted real estate strategists. In possibly the worst market in history, they developed a plan that sold my Arlington condo in just three and a half weeks and helped me locate a new home that got me significantly more for my money. From start to finish, they made the process effortless, listened to my ideas and offered counsel that was proven right at every stage in the selling and buying process. I'd recommend the RealEstateHappenZ team highly!"
