Long & Foster Real Estate
13135 Lee Jackson Hwy
Fairfax, VA 22033
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"I was purchasing a house in the Northern Virginia area while living in New York. This was a very tricky proposition, but made much easier by Sherry Spinelli. She was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout my home buying process, and understood my requirements well and was able to identify homes that would suit so that we could view them on weekends. Her local knowledge of the area was also second to none. Even after the contract was signed and the dust settled, Sherry has continued to be helpful in recommending contractors and checking in to see that all is well with the house. I would highly recommend Sherry Spinelli to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area. Andrew, Vienna 17th Jul 2013"
-Andrew L., Client
"I strongly recommend Sherry. She has been incredible with us. Not only she helped us find our dream-house, but she helped us in any way she could with the patience of a saint, and there were many occasions every single day: Adjusting to the numerous constraints we had (agendas, very little time to visit houses, kids to keep busy during house-hunting...), negotiating the purchase agreement, negotiating any issue related to the house, recommending and providing the details of trusted service providers, etc. the list is endless. Sherry has an extensive view of her role and that is what makes all the difference. The date of the closing is not the last day you will see her ! She won't let you go until she is reinsured that there isn't any issue related to the installation in the new house left. And once you will have settled-in for good, you're the one who won't let her go, since she played such a wonderful part in your new well-being! Sherry, many thanks again for all you've done for us.."
-Camille Louradour, Client
"Sherry Spinelli is wonderful! We recently had to relocate to the NoVa area (quickly) and was provider her name as someone who would be able to help with our needs. She immediately reached out to us and asked all the correct questions to what ‘we wanted’. She immediately provided us with many options and spent numerous days helping us to refine our selection. Sherry was very knowledgeable about all the houses and areas and was invaluable in us quickly finding a home that met all our needs. It was a great pleasure to work with Sherry from the initial interview to the final close of the house. She went over and beyond to make us happy! I can’t wait until I have to move again, just so I can look forward to receiving my daily e-mails from Sherry again. She was always upbeat and started my day with a smile. You can’t go wrong with working with Sherry for whatever your needs may be. "
-Tom and Amy, Client
"Thank goodness for Sherry Spinelli! With her staging and marketing, my condo sold in five days!!! A record for my building!! I wouldn't make a move to or from the Northern VA area now without the benefit of Sherry. She came highly recommended to me by my realtor in NC where I relocated too. I'm very fortunate to have gone through this process. Her pricing strategy led to my receiving a higher price for my home than I even considered listing the property for. Additionally, her strategy for the counter offer also resulted in a successful transaction. In all, I netted more money from the sale of my condo thanks to Sherry."
-Wayne Simpson, Client
"It was a true pleasure working with Sherry. This was my 4th time purchasing a home and I know how stressful it can be. Sherry made it easy and never made me feel pressured to make a decision I was not comfortable with. Her knowledge of the transaction process and local area was impressive. She kept me completely informed throughout the process and was even available after the purchase with advice about home improvement contractors and other issues. She was a fierce advocate for me as her client and I definitely intend to call on her again if/when I decide to buy or sell in the future."
-Deena Watson, Client
"Sherry is 100% trustworthy and someone you can fully trust with a key to your house. For houses needing a little updating or repair, Sherry brings added value with her construction and other home maintenance contacts, who are generally responsive and perform quality work. My family purchased a house with a little bit of age; after the sale when we were making some updates and repairs, Sherry stayed in touch to make sure things went smoothly and frequently offered local contacts with reasonable rates."
-Jill Bezek, Client
"While there where others, two moments particularly stood out that made me recognize that I had an exceptional agent advocating my interests. First, after our offer was accepted and we received the home inspection report, Sherry analyzed the report data and developed a comprehensive list of was appropriate to ask the sellers to address. All of our requests –and there were multiple- were agreed upon. In my opinion Sherry struck the right balance and in the end we got addressed what needed to be addressed. Two, after the sale, and on the day we were moving in, the AC broke down, I called Sherry and told her the problem; she could have easily passed on helping -the closing occurred two weeks prior, instead she said we addressed that in the inspection and developed a game plan should it need repairing ill handle it from here. The AC was fixed that afternoon at no cost to me"
-Peter & Kristin Darcy, Client
"Sherry helped my husband and I purchase our first home and she made it so easy. She was flexible, knowledged, and persistent with the other agent to get the deal closed in our SHORT time-frame! Sherry is one of the good ones out there and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!! You can't always find honest, hard-working, and trustworthy people these days."
-Virginia Balash & Steve Klaum, Client
"It is with great pleasure that we write to thank you for your help in purchasing our home...You were always available and ready to assist in whatever manner you could. We thank you for your expertise and professionalism. "
-Eric & Lee Anne Kaniut, Client
"Again, words are truly not adequate to express what an amazing agent you are. Determined, professional, caring, understanding, gracious, patient are a few of the words to describe you. It certainly has been a pleasure working with you. You have exceeded all my expectations...and more, and that is rare for anyone to do. So thank you for all that you do, especially for being human throughout this process with me, which I know at times have been a whirlwind."
-Keesha Campbell, Client
"Sherry is a terrific agent. I was lucky enough to walk into one of her open houses and I never looked back. I absolutely enjoyed my home buying experrience with Sherry. I don't think anyone out there will work harder for you than she will."
-Damian Danowski , Client
"“I first met Sherry when one of our neighbors was selling their home. They were living overseas hence Sherry had the challenge of not only selling the house but also keeping it meticulously maintained. I think Sherry was at the property at least once a day until it sold and the property looked impeccable! When I decided to sell a condo that I owned Sherry was one of 3 brokers that I interviewed. The suggested range of listing prices varied by over 20% and Sherry’s was in the middle and seemed the most realistic so I listed it with her. She staged my unit and it looked absolutely amazing! I had an offer within 5 days of the listing, sold it in 45, and for slightly more than I thought I was going to get. If you are looking for an extremely hard working realtor who gets results I highly recommend that you consider Sherry.” September 2, 2011"
-Alan Batcheller, Client
"Sherry helped me sell my home in the most difficult market of 2008. She stepped in to limit my costs and guide my choices while marketing my property. Her superb attention to detail and her team of vendors and service pros allowed me to sell for a decent price. I was pleased and highly recommend her."
-Gary Voegele, Client
"From the very first email in which you followed up with us - you have been highly professional and we got the feeling that you are working for US and not for anyone else. You helped us understand and develop a negotiating strategy when needed and helped us execute it just as if you were dealing with a member of your own family. We noticed how professional and ethical you are and how OUR interests are the ones that are important to you. Your professionalism made us so comfortable in one of the most important decisions of our life. We knew we could turn to you with any question we didn't have the answer to. We will recommend you without hesitation to anyone we know."
-David Alpher & Sharon Rosenburg, Client
"Sherry worked hard at staying within the budget and still being able to update the house with fixtures and appliances. I know she spent HOURS looking at fixtures, colors, etc. Everything Sherry picked and the people she used to do the jobs, worked wonderfully...Sherry was able to guide us on a realistic asking price for our house and held several Open Houses and got to know our surrounding neighbors as well. In a tough economy, our house sold in less than two months! We highly recommend Sherry...We look forward to using Sherry again at a later date."
-Paul & Maria Spence, Client
"Thank you for your help in finding the perfect home. Throughout the entire process you were there to guide us...The numerous hours you spent with us as we explored different cities, neighborhoods and house styles was greatly appreciated. With your help the entire process of finding a home was enjoyable. In addition to your support in our home search we are grateful for all of your assistance after we moved into our home...You have become more than just our real estate agent - you have become a true friend to us."
-Rich & Jacki H., Client
"SHERRY SPINELLI is the best real estate professional we have ever worked with in over 40 years of buying & selling homes -- by far! Sherry has it all -- unsurpassed knowledge and a tireless work ethic, and she overlooked no detail in order to provide us the best possible value and complete satisfaction. Protecting our best interests was clearly Sherry's number one priority. We will call upon Sherry for all of our future real estate needs!!! Sherry, You are my heroine."
-Rich R. , Client
"My home buying experience with Sherry was outstanding. You will not find an agent as professional, honest and hard working as she is. From start to finish, the communication flow was amazing. Her constant researching and attention to detail ensured I made an offer on my dream home the day it hit the market - and she's plays hard ball - you want her negotiating for your team. She knows how important it is to react quickly, or the opportunity will pass you by. But at the same time, you will not be pressured. This is a huge investment, and she'll stick by your side until the right home is ready."
-Adam Robbins, Client
"We got to know Sherry while we were helping our daughter buy a home. She was really helpful on many levels. She was very responsive and focused. She got answers to any questions we had. She made the entire process smooth from start to finish. I have worked with many realtors over the years and would rate Sherry at the top."
-Kevin & Kate Green, Client
"Sherry went far above and beyond what we expected from our real estate agent when we bought our home in Northern VA. After showing us approximately 20 homes (which, from what I'm told, is a high number for a 2nd-time buyer) in a whirlwind of a weekend, we made an offer on the house that we ended up purchasing. She was patient and respectful of both our needs and wants while showing us homes, and demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the area. Once the contract was ratified, she made a point of keeping open communication with us, always being very responsive and receptive to our questions and concerns. As the closing date approached, it looked like our lender might not give final approval for closing on the date that we had agreed to in our contract with the seller, but Sherry jumped through countless hoops to help satisfy their contingencies so that we could close on time. I *HIGHLY* recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house in Northern VA -- she is a role model for all real esta"
