Amazing Success Stories

“THANK YOU Luz for helping us get into our Reston dream house! As first time home buyers, especially in today’s highly competitive market, Luz’s knowledge and sense of urgency proved to be invaluable. She helped us navigate the whole process and understand what strategies we could take to get the house we wanted, even in a sellers’ market! Without a doubt, working with Luz (and the whole Greater Reston Living team) has made all the difference. I would highly recommend Luz to anyone serious about making a move.”

Luz's knowledge and sense of urgency proved invaluable!

“I had the pleasure of working with Luz as my realtor during my recent move from overseas to the area. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional assistance throughout the entire process. Luz's ability to communicate fluently in Spanish was a tremendous asset for me. She not only helped me understand the local areas, schools, and communities, but she also made sure I felt comfortable and informed every step of the way. Her dedication to providing personalized service truly stood out. One of the most impressive aspects of working with Luz was her efficiency in finding a home for me. Despite the time constraints I faced due to my military assignment, she managed to locate and secure a suitable property in record time. Her attention to detail and thorough understanding of my requirements were evident in the options she presented. Luz's professionalism and empathy were remarkable. She went above and beyond to ensure that I had a smooth transition and that all my needs were met. Her ability to navigate the complexities of the real estate process with grace and expertise was truly commendable. I highly recommend Luz Blakney as a realtor to anyone in need of outstanding service. Her dedication, knowledge, and genuine care for her clients make her an exceptional professional in her field. I am grateful for her assistance and couldn't be happier with my new home.”

“Thank you, Luz, for helping us get our dream home! We worked with Luz Blakney to purchase our home and couldn’t be happier! Luz's deep understanding of the market was invaluable. She was always available to answer questions and was on top of every detail from the moment we started searching for listings until the day we closed. We called her the day we saw our future home, and Luz scheduled the showing immediately. Luz and her team worked quickly to put an offer in the house, and we had a contract within a couple of days. Her professionalism, patience, and knowledge make the process effortless. We appreciate Luz's hard work, honesty, and attention to detail and would recommend her without reservation!”

“Kathy did an amazing and thorough job! Can’t recommend her enough! Just when you’re feeling overwhelmed with ALL those documents and signatures, she makes you feel at ease. Professional and extremely knowledgeable! She was there for us during the entire process.”

Kathy did an amazing and thorough job!

“Kathy Tracey, our realtor, is a GEM!! We met her and knew immediately that we were in good hands for our home search and buying process. Within four days of beginning our search, we had a contract on the home of our dreams. She quickly facilitated a few obstacles, mostly because of the crazy seller's market, and kept us informed of all developments. She communicated everything in a manner that kept us knowledgeable about the process until and through our closing. Now we don't just call her our realtor, we call her our friend. Thank you Kathy, and we're so happy you came into our lives at exactly the right time!”

Kathy is a gem!

“Kathy is great! She is one of the most responsive realtors I've ever worked with. She is super responsive and willing to do virtual sessions on new homes and make sure we get the first look... Time is of the essence in this market and she really understands that. She definitely goes the extra mile to keep everything moving. She has a great time around her to help with settlement and also, financing. Most agents drag their feet, she does not...Really helpful and knowledgeable about the market. I would recommend her for my friends.”

Goes the extra mile!

“I’d always been a homeowner, until 2015 when “life changes” happened and required me to rent for a while. One year turned into 5 and I thought I’d never be able to own a place of my own again. Enter…Kathy Tracey and the team at Greater Reston Living! After a chat at Starbucks one day, Kathy was able to help me see that my dream of home ownership was an actual possibility! With rates so low, it was worth exploring the idea, and thus our journey began. One year and MANY property tours later we found the elusive “Unicorn” I had been looking for. The right location, the right features, upgrades, and storage galore! We found a property that has all the convenience of maintenance free condo living, with the charm of a little cottage at the beach (only without the beach). During the course of our journey Kathy demonstrated the 4 P’s of what you want in a Real Estate partner…Professional, Positive, Persistent, and Patient. I appreciated her encouragement and positive outlook as inventory came and went, as well as her no-pressure approach as I cautiously navigated the landscape and evaluated my options. I knew what I wanted, and I wasn’t going to settle for just anything. When the planets aligned and the right property presented itself, Kathy was on top of every document and detail required for making the offer, scheduling inspections, and helping me prepare for settlement. I’ve been in my “Unicorn Cottage” for nearly a month now, and I love it more each day! I can’t thank Kathy Tracey and her team enough for helping me find a place that I can call my own, and where I will be happy for a very long time!”

Professional, Positive, Persistent, and Patient

“"Best realtor you can get!! Kathy has been my realtor twice already. She helped me find a rental place a couple of years ago and a home to buy in the summer of 2021. Together, we went through an amazing journey of exploring NoVA neighborhoods. We’ve seen a lot – from cute, to odd, to amazing, to scary. But what a fun journey that was. Through that experience Kathy has helped me understand what is the home that would make me happy and what part of NoVA would be the best fit for me. But that was but a start. Finding the right home in the intense COVID market was more than a challenge. Kathy navigated the market with vigor and grace. She supported me in the days I got discouraged and demonstrated unbelievable investigatory skills while contacting listing agents. Now, that I am a happy new homeowner I want to praise Kathy for her dedication, professional understanding of the market, great communication skills, and a fantastic sense of humor.”

Best Realtor you can get!!

“I can’t imagine going through the home buying experience without Kathy and Graham. Kathy was everything you could ask for in a realtor – personable, flexible, and extremely responsive. As a first-time home buyer, she and Graham made sure I understood the ins and outs of the process. Their combined knowledge and insights were extremely valuable and put me at ease throughout what could have been a very stressful experience. I cannot recommend this duo enough! Thanks, Kathy and Graham, for helping me find my dream home!”
