" Lisa was wonderful to work with! She was a true partner at every step of our home sale. From getting our home ready to go on the market to collaborating on strategies for marketing, her attention to detail, warmth, and personal commitment to ensuring the best possible experience during what can be a stressful process were exceptional. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our sale and would happily recommend her to friends, family, and colleagues at any stage of the home sale or purchase process! "

– Sloane Kavanagh Whidden

" We recently sold our courtyard home in Old Town Village with Lisa Groover. Lisa was a pleasure to work with and was exceptional in providing what was needed to make our house sell in one day at the asking price. We appreciated Lisa's personal attention to detail, quick response in getting everything in place for our listing, and excellent follow through. She listened to our concerns and needs to make sure we were happy with the final product and outcome. Her expert advice on how to stage, what to update and pricing was invaluable in obtaining the best outcome for us. She had excellent experienced contacts to get things completed quickly so that we were ready for the market earlier than anticipated. Working with Lisa was a pleasure and we would highly recommend her services to anyone interested in having an exceptional experience in selling or buying a home."

– Cheryl and Bruce G.

" Lisa absolutely loves helping folks find their forever home. She is tireless in her search to find you your dream list. And once she delivers, she's still helping with anything you need! She's my forever realtor!!"

– Sher B. - Montebello Condominiums

" The best of the breed! Lisa guided me through the process of renting my home when I was overseas. We worked through time differences. She went above and beyond her role as a realtor. The day I was leaving the country due to an emergency, I had issues with my moving guy and renting my storage space. She rented it for me. She did a countless number of things that she was not supposed to - but she did because I was in a difficult situation. I would not have been able to rent my place without the outstanding support of Lisa. I would highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs."

– Arundhati "Mimu" G. - Old Town Village Condominiums

" Having bought and sold many homes over a 40 year government career, I can say working with Lisa was the best - least painful and most profitable - sale ever. Perfect advice and incredible personal attention sold the home before any listing, and closing took all of 30 minutes. She is by far the best agent ever!"

– Steve & Kathy C. - Old Town Village - Fayette Model

" As a military family, we have lived in the DC area several times over the past 20 years. When we decided to focus on finding a home in Alexandria, we spent a year getting to know the neighborhoods and market. Along the way we were very lucky to meet Lisa Groover who is a wonderful combination of fun, cheerful, encouraging and most of all patient. In a highly competitive environment which included more than a couple starts and stops, Lisa’s insight, in addition to her knowledgeable and helpful network, made all the difference. We found a perfect home in a perfect neighborhood. Thanks Lisa!"

– Ginger & John L. - Jefferson Park, Alexandria

" Five Stars! Lisa was patient, friendly and very knowledgeable. The sellers of my condo were difficult and particular - Lisa was firm when dealing with them - and patient with my frustrations. I'm very thankful to have had her in my corner! I will recommend Lisa to my friends and colleagues."

– Amber H. - ParkFairfax Condominiums

" As a first time home buyer, finding the perfect home can be a very intimidating process. Luckily, we found Lisa and the rest is history! From the very start, she has been a great listener and very patient with helping me find a home in Old Town. She kept in mind the many aspects I desired and didn’t stop searching until she found the home of my dreams! When it came to purchasing the home she made sure every step of the way went smoothly and in a timely manner. I am truly loving my new home and looking forward to the years to come. Lisa is a true professional and a wonderful person who really cares about all her clients. Highly recommend her!"

– Ashley M. - Old Town Alexandria's Parker-Grey Neighborhood

" When I decided to sell my house, I didn’t know how much work it would take. Luckily, I engaged Lisa Groover as my agent, and that made all the difference. She knows how to stage a house, where to get items for me to “borrow,” how to pace the work load, and was even eager to lend a hand. She kept me informed daily. She was unfailingly encouraging, and it made all the difference. The house sold in less than two weeks for the targeted price we had discussed, and she helped me plan the closing, knowing I would be out of town. I can’t say enough about her knowledge and helpfulness. It has truly been a pleasure working with Lisa. "

– Ann S. - Old Town Village – Patrick Model

" Without a doubt, Lisa Groover earned an A+ handling the sale of our home in Old Town Village! We loved her enthusiasm, marketing creativity and willingness to help prepare our house to sell. She was accessible and responsive, and gave great advice, while respecting our ideas and needs. Her knowledge of the real estate market, especially in the Old Town area, and networking expertise made the selling process a positive experience. Many thanks, Lisa!"

– Wendy & Chuck G. - Old Town Village – Fayette Model

" When the Weirs were asked how they selected their agent the response was…”Lisa Groover has done a great job of marketing herself within Old Town Village, we liked her style and approach.” And concerning the level of service…”Lisa was terrific! She provided valuable guidance and support throughout our preparatory process and was tirelessly cheerful, responsive and enthusiastic throughout the time our house was on the market."

– Kim and Bobby W. - Old Town Village – Fayette Model

" We found ourselves in the position of wanting to sell our house quickly, and knew that we had to do some painting, repairing, and rearranging prior to listing our house. Lisa took what I considered not possible and made it possible. Mike and I often worked long hours, and she met with the repairmen, painter, and the “floor guy” to get estimates and oversee the work. When Mike was suddenly called into a meeting and would not be able to meet the refrigerator delivery crew, he called Lisa. She dropped everything and left a luncheon to go over to the house, empty our refrigerator, and oversee the delivery. Lisa helped us have our house ready for market in record time, and was always there when we needed her "

– Karen and Mike R. - Old Town Village – Gibbon Model

" After nineteen years, we decided to sell our home in Old Town Village, Alexandria and move to a Condo. That the move went so smoothly with no problem was because of Lisa Groover, our McEnearney realtor. Lisa diligently, and in a most professional manner, walked with us through all the steps of purchasing our new home and then selling our old one. She displayed great patience at all times answering, probably over and over, all our questions with the greatest aplomb making us feel as if we were her only concern. Noteworthy was Lisa’ s determination to ensure we were always aware of exactly where we were in the process and of what we should expect next. She continuously updated us on what had been accomplished and what was yet to be done. And, Lisa was always available to answer questions, provide advice and status. Lisa was for us the epitome of what one hopes a realtor is. It was a flawless process and pleasant because of Lisa. "

– Bob and Priscilla H. - Old Town Village – Patrick Model and Porto Vecchio Condominiums

" We could not be more pleased with Lisa Groover as our realtor.  Being the first time we sold a home she made us feel like her only client, available at all hours of the day and night, and was extra attentive to our needs as we have 3 dogs.  She knew that not only was this going to be stressful for us but also our 4 legged children. We would use Lisa again in a heartbeat!”"

– Tracy N. & Sherrie R. - Seminary Valley - Alexandria

" I was so lucky to have found Lisa. She saw the value in my historic condo right away and was a whiz at marketing it. She even teamed up with a local artist for a 'meet the artist' open house to help it stand out and created lots of interest (and buyers!) as soon as it hit the market. Lisa takes the time to think creatively, work with you on ideas and next steps, and communicate with you every step of the way. I stayed on with her to buy my next property and she was just as wonderful! Prepared, patient, and pleasant during what can be a stressful process. She was completely on top of the negotiating and closing process as well. Lisa is a gem!"

– Julia S. - Courts Condominiums - Old Town and Oak Cluster Townhomes - Del Ray

" My husband and I had our hearts set on living in Old Town, but Lisa Groover helped us see the community ideal for our lifestyle was actually Cameron Station. It's a perfect fit for our preferences and pocketbook and we are very happy in our Cameron Station Condo."

– Jasmine S. - Cameron Station

" My wife and I met Lisa Groover during an open house we attended at a building where there were several properties being shown on that day.  Because of this, we had the opportunity of meeting about four agents on the same day. Lisa was among them; however, she immediately stood out from the crowd. She made us feel very comfortable and very much at ease.  We were so impressed with her, we later engaged her to be our agent. She was patient, and always very aware of our needs and likes. She worked tirelessly to match us with the right property. If she is your agent, prepare yourself to have your real estate dreams become a reality."

– Essdras S.

" Lisa was excellent. She loves this region, and she knows it like the back of her hand. She is very proactive, and goes the extra mile for the client. I could not fault her drive or effort. I recommend her unreservedly."

– Jim B.

" Lisa was wonderful to work with. She helped us tremendously as we searched for our first home together. We found the perfect place for us as well as our pets!"

– Megan E. - Fayette Court Condominiums

" Lisa Groover was a joy to work with as I purchased one home and sold another. She represented me on both sides and was very in tune with my needs and wants. Lisa is accessible, knowledgeable, motivated, and a great negotiator. I enjoyed every step of the process with her. Her patience and guidance went beyond that of a realtor, and was more like a trusted friend. She has a sunny personality and a real flair for putting on the best and most memorable open houses. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. "

– Beth L. - Beauregard Heights & Sulgrave Manor

" Lisa Groover sold our house in Old Town Village in record time and for the right price! Throughout this process Lisa showed herself to be a highly effective professional who developed a comprehensive plan for selling our home. No detail escaped her. We were particularly impressed with her flair for staging the house and her effectiveness during negotiation for its sale. We would employ Lisa in the future and have already recommended her to our friends."

– Mick and Cathy H. - Old Town Village - Patrick Model

" It was a pleasure to have Lisa Groover help us find our new home in Alexandria. We met Lisa a day before we had to return to Florida and she was willing to show us condos for rent within an hours notice. Lisa is completely dedicated and provided professional services. She continues to keep in touch with us and let us know her favorite restaurants to visit."

– Liz & Jeff T. - The Royalton Condominiums

" I have worked with many real estate agents in the Washington, DC Metro area. Many different types of properties and very different selling prices. Lisa brought more overall knowledge and enthusiasm to this transaction than I have ever experienced. It truly was an exceptional experience as the seller to work so closely with Lisa. She understood from the very beginning what to do and how to do it with success. I will hire her again every time I have real estate to sell."

– Tricia F. - Brocketts Crossing Condominiums

" Finding a home with one dog is challenging – let alone three dogs who range in size. While we faced many barriers, working with a Realtor who understood our pet needs was not one of them. A pet owner can always tell another animal lover, and that is exactly what we got with Lisa! "

– Jacquie R. - West Springfield

" Lisa was fantastic! She was able to very quickly size up my "needs" and my "would like to haves" in our search. This synchronization of my expectations with her knowledge of the market resulted in very little wasted motion or time. It was not about volume it was about finding the right fit."
