  • Lex helped me buy a home

      Lex was great to work with. He listened to what we wanted and helped us every step of the way. He answered all our questions and took care of any problem that arose. Our sellers wanted to push back the closing the night before we were to close and Lex made sure that didn’t happen. We didn’t even know about the issue until we were at the closing, ready to sign the papers because he took care of it all on his own. I would highly recommend Lex and his team.

    • Lex helped me through my first home purchase, which I was somewhat anxious about as Im very busy and dont have a lot of time to research all of the ins and outs for the process. Lex gave me his recommendations along the way and made sure I knew what was going on at each step, in terms I could understand. He knew getting a home quickly was one of my priorities and it became his priority. Once I found a place I wanted, Lex initially found that I could not purchase the home because of the type of loan I was using. Instead of accepting the situation, he continued to research and found the approval I needed to get the home I wanted. And keep in mind he is juggling multiple clients. Based on his other reviews, Ill assume he gives every client the same effort. It makes a big difference in the quality of someones work when they enjoy what they do

    • We met Lex at an open house and he reached out to us regarding our house search. He was not pushy or insistent as many other realtors are. We felt no pressure to buy and he allowed us to stay on our timeline, as in, he was very patient with us. Another thing that impressed me about Lex was that he didn't try to "up sell" us, he only showed us homes that were in our price range and never pushed to go higher than what we were willing to pay. Lex had all the answers to our questions and had resources available (i.e. financing, home owners insurance, inspectors etc)throughout the entire process. He was seemingly always available, even answering questions and taking calls at 10pm. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a home and have already passed his information on to several of our friends looking for homes in the area.

    • Lex is simply put, the best. He did a great job assisting us in navigating the challenging and fast paced NoVA real estate market. He was always willing to show us a home as soon as it hit the market and shared his in depth knowledge on home value and what he felt would be the appropriate offer amount. As soon as we got under our contract on our new home he went fast to work on marketing our old home. Thanks to his marketing and promotional efforts he was able to get our old home under contract within a couple weeks and we had closing the day after we moved out. Overall, thanks to Lex we feel like we ended up in a beautiful home at a great value and were able to get nice return on investment for our old home. Thank you Lex !

    • As first time home buyers, other than a few Property Virgin episodes under our belt, we had little to no understanding of the home buying experience. We met Lex at an open house in Falls Church and were immediately impressed with his knowledgeable and honest answers. We had gone to quite a few open houses at that point and he was the first agent we met who was genuinely interested and concerned about our house hunt. After his follow up phone call, we had decided to transfer our services from our previous agent to Weichert when we realized the level of customer service he was willing to offer. We were mainly concerned with working with an agent who would be able to explain every step of the home buying process thoroughly and Lex more than fulfilled this requirement. After just 2 weeks with working with Lex, we found the house we are living in today. Lex's good humor, savvy, and patience navigated our way smoothly through what is generally to be thought of as a daunting and overwhelming experience (as well as joyous and rewarding, but mostly for first time buyers it's terrifying). We can't thank him enough for the services he provided and the extra care he gave us, knowing that we had never done this before. We will be recommending him with no hesitation to our friends and family who will be in the market for a new home.

    • This is a letter of endorsement for Lex Lianos, whom I have worked with to purchase a condo in Arlington, VA throughout the Winter of 2011. This was my first purchase of a house and Lex was an excellent realtor to work with. I am a newcomer to the area with limited knowledge of neighborhoods and prices. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and patiently. He sent me information about available condos that met my criteria, so we never had to waste time looking at houses that was not suitable for my needs. After only a few weeks, I was able to find a condo that was the perfect match for me. He also gave very honest advice and never rushed me to make decisions, explaining that this was a serious decision to make. He is a very knowledgeable, patient, and considerate person to work with. Whenever I left him a message or sent him an email, he got back to me very quickly. He helped with every step of the process from dealing with my mortgage broker, to home inspection, to title company. That is why I think he is the best person to work with for a first time home purchaser. He is one of the most professional people I have had a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Please feel free to contact me to ask any questions you might have.

    • To whom this will concern-This is an enthusiastic letter of endorsement for Lex Lianos who, in the Spring of 2010, helped my wife and me with the purchase of our first home in Fairfax, Virginia.My wife and I had lived in the Fairfax-area for just under a year when we made the decision to purchase a house; we found Lex after an extensive search of realtors and real estate agencies in the area he came highly recommended. As this was our first home, we knew very little about the process, outside of what friends and family had told us. We werent certain what kind of home we could afford, where and how we would obtain the mortgage, or if the time was even right for us to try to buy. With a single phone-conversation, however, Lex had us on track. He directed us to a colleague at Weichert Financial, who helped us with the mortgage pre-approval, and by early March we were looking for a home.Two things come immediately to mind about our experience working with Lex: first, how knowledgeable he is about the real estate market and the complexities of purchasing and ownership; and second, how patient and considerate he is. These are qualities that not only instilled confidence in us that when we found a home, the process of moving forward on it would be a smooth one, but also stripped away our first-time buyer insecurities.Remarkably, we needed only to see four properties before Lex took us to the house that we knew we had to have. Its a credit to his ability to hear the kinds of things we wanted in a house and apply that to his knowledge of the market in this area that we were able to find a home so quickly. Through every step of the process, from where to enter with our bid to scheduling the home inspection, making certain every piece of paperwork was filed correctly, and closing on the sale, Lex made certain everything went smoothly. He advocated for us and kept us informed of everything that was happening. Buying a home, especially a first home, can be as stressful as it is exciting; we feel very fortunate that our experience was such a good one and we credit this to the excellent work that Lex Lianos did for us. He is enthusiastic, generous with his time, patient, and enormously hard working. I cannot recommend him highly enough.It is my hope that this letter will help both you and him. We are so thankful for what Lex did for us and for the professionalism and kindness he embodies.May your search be as enjoyable as ours.

    • Dear Lex,We just completed our short sale last week, what a relief. The only thing that helped over the past four months was your guidance, expertise and relentless dedication. From the start, when you walked us through our house and gave us tips for preparing for our upcoming showings, through all the weeks of communication with the banks, and the end when we signed the home over to the new buyers you were in our corner supporting our familys needs during this difficult and emotional time. Your connections in the industry and knowledge of the housing market in Northern Virginia put us at a huge advantage. We were priced correctly from the start, had a buyer within two weeks and you were able to maintain a good relationship with the buyers agent to keep them engaged while the banks dragged us along. Your knowledge of this difficult process was critical and saved us thousands because of your advice during the negotiation process, but the reason we felt so safe in your hands was the attention and constant communication you gave us. Thank you so much for the care, support and your expert skill in guiding us through the short sale process.

    • Working with Lex was wonderful. I have bought and sold four homes with different agents and this was far and away the best experience. Although my husband and I knew we wanted to move, we were in no rush we wanted to wait for the right house. We were up front with Lex about our intentions and he was perfectly accepting. At the time, Im not sure he knew what he was in for. Despite showing us many homes, Lex never pushed us to move quicker than we were comfortable.Lex showed us our first house in July of 2011. After off and on looking, he continued to work with us for over a year until we finally settled on a home in September 2012. Despite our high demands and specific criteria, Lex was always patient, through and responsive not to mention incredibly positive through the purchase or our new home and sale of our existing one.Unlike other agents Ive worked with in the past, there was no bait-and-switch. Lex was there for every appointment in person, never sending an associate or assistant. He has an attention to detail that you dont find in many other professionals in this area of service and I was able to rest easy that he was paying attention to the details when I couldnt. He certainly goes the extra mile to provide quality service to his clients in all areas from routine listing emails, professional photo shoots, top notch brochures and listing materials, use of a staging professional, and more.Without a doubt, I will work with Lex again, (if hell have us!) and Ill recommend him to others without hesitation.

    • To Whom it May Concern,I highly recommend Lex Lianos. He is a great person, extremely knowledgeable and an incredible Realtor! When my wife and I decided that we were ready to transition to a larger home we got in touch with Lex for some help and advice. As soon as we met him we both knew that we could trust him without question to help us find our perfect home. Lex was very patient with our needs, always prompt to respond and made time for us to look through so many homes that we were interested in. Eventually we found the perfect home and Lex represented us and helped us through the entire process. He made the experience enjoyable and exciting. All through our home buying process. Lex has served so much more than a Realtor for us. Above all, he has been a great friend, genuine well-wisher always keeping my interests as a number one priority and an expert adviser.Lex is very experienced, well connected and will help you prepare for the unforeseen. I cannot recommend high enough.Thank you Lex for all your help.

    • We cannot recommend Lex enough! We got hooked up with Lex by chance; I had responded to a Zillow ad in regards to a particular house and received a call back from Lex in the local office the next day. As first time home buyers, we really appreciated Lexs willingness to help us understand the home buying process. He was patient and honest in our search. After taking his time in talking to us and understanding our wants/needs budget, Lex only provided listings to houses that he felt were legitimate contenders.We found our current home within one month of connecting with Lex and felt that his experience and knowledge of the fast moving homes in the Arlington market definitely helped us in getting our house. As with many real estate deals, our closing hit a snag as a result of some paperwork mis-filings from our mortgage broker. Lex was on top of the situation and helped us to successfully and smoothly close the deal in his negotiations with the seller.I am confident that the deal successfully went through as a direct result of Lexs experience and competence in the home buying & selling market. We feel very lucky that we were able to connect with Lex in our house hunt and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in this area. Thank you Lex for finding us a great house!

    • Dear LexWe cant thank you enough for helping us with the purchase of our new home. You are an incredibly-talented real estate agent, and we felt lucky to have you on our side of the closing table. You have a superb understanding of the Northern Virginia real estate market.W are truly grateful for the effort you made to help us find the perfect house, often driving miles across town on short notice to show us newly-listed properties. You always came prepared with useful information about the home, the neighborhood and the community. You have a keen eye for detail, and we appreciate the times when you identified potential problems with some of the properties we visited.We also appreciate the hard-work you put into the bidding and closing process. You responded thoroughly and candidly to our questions and did an excellent job of putting together our offer packages. You listened carefully during our conversations, and were exemplary in your willingness to advocate our views during the negotiations. The inspectors, mortgage professionals and builders you recommended were equally as professional. Now that renovations are complete, we look forward to showing you the beautiful space you helped us find.You have made us happy homeowners. We have encouraged our friends and family to consider using Lex Lianos when purchasing a home.
