" Betsy is professional, down to earth, and extremely knowledgeable. She is a pleasure to work with! Betsy is very attentive and just all-around so helpful, with all matters, big and small. She was on point with her guidance and recommendations. She took the time to walk us through each step of the entire selling process and just offers such great service. I would recommend Betsy and her team to anyone in the market, looking to buy or sell a property!"

– Jenny

" Betsy and her team truly went above and beyond to help us find our home. She has extremely deep knowledge of the area and provided outstanding advice. We trust her completely and recommend her wholeheartedly. "

" Betsy Twigg provided exceptional service in the sale of a rental house I had owned for almost 40 years. The house was solid and well maintained; however, none of the three bathrooms nor the kitchen had been updated in decades. Further, the property was on Carlin Springs Road, a busy and noisy thoroughfare. Some of the houses across the street were in derelict condition. Betsy did a first-class job of helping me stage the house, bringing in her own stager to rearrange the furniture I had brought in. She also added a few finishing pieces of her own. Much to my surprise, her ad for the house was titled "Adorable and Affordable." After looking at the pictures in the ad and at the house itself, I was even more astonished to find that she was right. She had made the house "adorable." There were two offers within a week. A third offer, which I accepted, came in the third week. We went to settlement a month later. The staging of the house, the advertising, the open house for agents and for the public, her responsiveness during each step of the process — everything she did was a class act. "

" Betsy Twigg is the person you want on your side if you are selling your house. She has seen it all. She is unflappable. My husband and I knew we had a lot of work to do to get our Arlington home ready for sale earlier this year. We'd been there 30 years, and it was well loved and lived in. She helped us focus on the most cost-effective solutions to get the house ready to sell. She also offered great advice about how to manage our time –– hire painters and focus on staging – because we were both still working full time. The services she offers really helped our house shine –– staging and photography especially. She also recommended a real estate agent in the city we were moving to, some 600 miles away. Betsy provided the most thoughtful and comprehensive response of the five agents we interviewed. As we moved closer to the day the house went on the market, again and again she demonstrated that we made the right choice. "

" Betsy was wonderful to work with! she is very knowledgeable about the area and the prospective buyers of our home. This is the first house that I have sold, and she helped with every little detail. It was a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling their home in Arlington. "

– Karen Seymour

" We loved Betsy, she was great! We sold our home this past year and started working with her many months in advance to understand what we needed to do in preparation for the sale. She gave us good and honest feedback and was real straight-forward when discussing our sale. She provided good guidance, was always available to answer questions, and really helped us be comfortable with every part of the transaction. She was always thoughtful and measured in helping us make decisions. Plus, we can't tell you how many people would see our sign and say "Oh, you are working with Betsy! She's the best!" We could not have agreed more! "

– Gillyn and Alex Croog

" Betsy was wonderful to work with in selling our home. She has such a wealth of experience and her fingers on the pulse of the market that it made our selling process much easier. Selling a long-time home can be very stressful (as well as emotional), and Betsy's calm demeanor and confident attitude helped us relax and focus on the tasks we needed to get done. She took care of many arrangements for us and had great ideas for improvements and knew who to call for repairs. We love Betsy sand highly recommend her. "

– Michelle and Brent Horsley

" Betsy Twigg is by far the very best realtor we have ever worked with. Not only is she very knowledgeable of the Arlington, VA, market, but her knowledge of real estate is impeccable. We have been buying and selling homes for 40 years. We live out of state so when we decided to sell our Arlington, VA, townhouse we thought it was going to be a difficult process. Betsy made it so easy. She took care of everything including finding and hiring contractors to make the townhouse look like new. Working with Betsy Twigg was the absolute best decision we made when it was time to sell our old house and buy a new one. Betsy has a professional rolodex that is unimaginable — anything that you need to have done, she has someone who can do the work quickly and inexpensively. Every contractor we brought in sang her praise — which makes sense, because she is so great to work with. Betsy looks out for the best interest of her clients throughout the entire process and beyond. Our buying process was a complicated one, and Betsy was there every step of the way, guiding and supporting us — we truly could not have done it without her. She knows the market and was able to get us a great rate on our new house and top dollar on our old house. If you are buying or selling a home in Northern Virginia, the best decision you will make is to use Betsy Twigg as your agent. "
