  • Rich helped me buy a home

      Rich is the best! He has helped us with the past three homes. Wouldn’t go to anyone else! Thanks Rich for everything you do!

    • Rich helped me buy a home

        Rich isn’t just a really good realtor but he is genuinely a really good person. We gave him only a few things we wanted in a home and he ended up helping us find our dream home to raise our boys. At first, the home seemed to expensive for us but Rich helped us make it affordable and make it ours. He has checked up on us every year since we purchased the home. Like I said, truly a good person. Zach

      • Rich DiGiovanna found me a nice place to live which I love. He is very honest, has great knowledge of the Northern Virginia area, he was always quick to respond to my concerns and questions. His negotiation skills are great when he sold my previous home. The entire paperwork was very easy and painless. I would recommend Rich to any one trying to buy or sell a home. He and his team are great!

      • We reached out to Rich after our home was previously listed with another company. After three months with the other realtor, all we had were reports on the number of web hits our house was receiving, but almost no traffic. About a month after we started with Rich, our house was under contract. Rich was able to get the job done for us and our house actually sold a bit higher than the asking price. What we liked best was his knowledge of the area; the schools, neighborhood and amenities, since this info is very helpful for perspective buyers. He also has a good intuition for staging recommendations and negotiating the final deal. Our overall selling experience working with Rich was excellent.

      • Rich was an exceptionally knowledgeable and tireless agent who worked with us through all of the "hassles" of selling our home and buying our condo. He was very patient with all of the questions and issues we had during the process and was very responsive whenever we panicked and had to get in touch with him. We would highly recommend Rich as an agent to anyone interested in personal, direct, knowledgeable, and responsive service. Rich and his team dedicates their time to you during the entire process.

      • Rich and Team made this whole process a breeze. This is our 2nd home we purchased with Rich. He never stops. And once you find your dream home, he's there through the whole process. His team has the buyers best interest at heart. I never dreamed that all I needed to be concerned with is packing and preparing for the move. If you are looking for a group that puts their client first, lets you know the process up-front, because surprises are not something you want, Rich is the man you need to call. I can't thank him enough for dedication and seamless process. I am in my dream home!!!!

      • After being in NoVa for a few years, we decided we knew where we wanted to purchase our home. Browsing homes online, we called the listing agent for a home we were interested in, and though it was under contract already, we lucked out because that agent was Rich. We immediately decided to use his vast knowledge of the area, market and network to find us our home. Rich was always available when we had questions, showed us homes we wouldn't have otherwise looked at, talked through all of our options with us, and took us to our dream home on the very first outting. He contacted the selling agent right away to find out the ballpark offer we needed to make. We closed on that dream home earlier this month and couldn't be happier. If you are looking to buy or sell and are looking for a true professional, Rich is your man!

      • We contracted with Rich to purchase a new home in Northern Virginia. Neither of us were familiar with the area and we wanted to get acquainted with the area before looking at homes. Rich was incredibly knowledgeable, and patient, giving us information and driving us around several communities before we narrowed our search. He asked GREAT questions to ensure he understood our needs. Then, he showed us a wide variety of homes that met our specifications. He was unbelievably thorough in his evaluation of each home. Ultimately, we elected to build a home that met our exact specifications and Rich was with us every step of the way, from initial contracting to selection of finishes, to inspections and walk-throughs. We always felt Rich was our advocate and partner in the process.

      • Rich was a true professional from day one. Our home had been a rental and needed many updates to get it ready for market. We looked into selling it "as is" and avoid the hassle of renovations. We were hesitant at first to put in money for the renovations as Rich recommended, but we did and it was money well spent! We were extremely pleased with the outcome! It was well worth it! Rich knew local contractors that were very reasonable in price and completed outstanding work in a very timely manner. The house looked gorgeous and we received two offers within three days of putting it on the market! He and his associates were always on top of things and kept us abreast of the progress. We have worked with a lot of real estate agents and can honestly say Rich and his team are one of the best! You will not be disappointed with Rich!

      • We put our house on the market late but rich and his team got us full asking price in just a few weeks!It started with a walkthrough our house and recommendations of what to do to make it show better followed by a specialist that helped us stage, or remove, the items required to show the house at its best. then came the photo's and videos that really showcased the house. People look at houses online and rich gave us a GREAT online presence. As a result, we had several showings a week.Rich was always patient, responsive and non-judgmental in his approach. Both my wife and I always felt very confortable with ever part of the sale and always felt he was working on our behalf.Once an offer was made and a contract in place, Rich's team took care of everything. We just showed up at closing.I would HIGHLY recommend Rich to anyone.

      • First of all, let us declare that without Rich, we would not have been able to sell our home at the desired price and in such a short timeframe. We were under contract in less than thirty days after putting the house on the market. Rich DiGiovanna is an outstanding realtor. First, as we gathered information on multiple realtors to determine which one may be the best, it was evident that Rich was the best. His reviews were the highest, his advertisement of homes the most appealing and complete, and the number of homes he sold within the shortest amount of time far exceeded his competitors. When we selected Rich as our realtor and prepared our home for sale, Rich guided us through the process. First, he conducted a detailed survey of the home with us and in collaboration, we developed a plan for updates that was feasible and cognizant of an established budget. Since we were not knowledgeable about reputable contractors within the area, Rich provided us contact information about home repair and renovation businesses with which he had worked with in the past. The contractors were excellent and Rich inspected all completed work to ensure high-quality standards had been met. The renovations were excellent, very reasonable in terms of cost, and timely without any issues. Again, without the assistance of Rich, we would not have been able to accomplish the needed workWhen the house was ready to be placed on the market for sale, Rich maximized the venues for advertisement and developed an extremely high-quality advertisement portfolio. The online video and tour of the house was beautiful accentuating the natural light and the features of the home. The brochures were beautiful, again with excellent photos and a very appealing appearance. Information about the home was comprehensive and annotated key and unique features. Throughout this timeframe, Rich updated us routinely.Once we had an offer, Rich negotiated an excellent sale and we quickly moved to a successful closure. We were so thankful for Rich's service, for without him, we would not achieved this sale. Rich is outstanding and we recommend, without hesitation, his services. If you want to sell your home, you must select Rich as your realtor!

      • We've bought and sold several houses in the past, and can say with certainty that our experience with Rich and his team was the best. They delivered, by far, the most service and the best results for the same commission rates as the others. He not only provided excellent marketing of our house, but excellent analytics regarding that marketing, which allowed us to make informed decisions on pricing. Once we had an offer, the excellent service continued, quickly and competently moving to a signed contract, and a successful closing. He and his team kept in constant communication with us throughout the entire process. At no point were we ever left wondering what was going on with home sale. 100% satisfaction and no stress --- it doesn't get any better.

      • My husband and I first met Rich when he was selling our neighbor's home. He was going door to door in our community introducing himself and offering his assistance to help us, friends, family, or acquaintances with the buying/selling process. He was very knowledgeable about the area, as well as the housing market and trends. I really knew he'd be the realtor for us if we ever decided to sell when he was out shoveling our neighbor's driveway, first thing in the morning, after a snow fall. He sold our neighbor's home expeditiously and they were extremely positive about the experience. Rich is a trustworthy realtor who really cares about doing a job well done. Rich was the first realtor we called when we put our home up for sale. He came to our home, did a walk through, gave us multiple helpful hints, and ultimately left it up to us as to what we were comfortable with fixing or changing. He also had the names and numbers for painters, wood floor refinishers, driveway sealers, you name it, that were very reasonably priced for the area. He pulled up multiple comps in our area and really made us feel comfortable with choosing an amount to list our home. Rich's extra efforts to generate buyers were evident with his marketing and online advertising of our home, which included a beautiful virtual tour with wide lens photographs. Rich and his team are a pleasure to work with. They kept us informed and updated every step of the way. Their response time was excellent and there was always an answer for any question during the process. We had multiple showings with multiple offers within days. Rich's negotiating skills ultimately brought us to get over asking price for our home, something we never thought was possible. If you want a quick and painless sale with a realtor who puts you first, who is extremely knowledgeable about the area/current housing trends, with the added perks of being honest and trustworthy, choose Rich DiGiovanna. I would work with him again in a heartbeat and will always recommend him to friends and family.

      • Rich has been one of the best real estate professionals we have ever worked with. He is knowledable and organized and is not hesitant to go above and beyond. After we signed the contract, he sent us updates to make sure everything was being completed on time, something I have never seen another Realtor do. He made this purchase the smoothest in our experience.

        - silvascasita
      • Rich knows Northern Virginia really well. He knew where I wanted to live even before I did. Even though I wasn't interested in viewing homes in the area where I wound up buying, Rich convinced me to have an open mind and trust his area knowledge. He negotiated a lower purchase price than I expected, got the seller to fix items after they had insisted on not doing any work or offering any compensation, and worked with me through what was probably one of the oddest closings ever. He still keeps in contact to make sure I am happy with my purchase. He was definitely more involved than the last real estate agent I used to purchase a house.

        - karenmarzullo
      • My buying process with Rich could not have gone any better. I contacted him to let him know I was interested in looking at a home...within hours we met and went through the house. It turns out the first one was the winner, but Rich still took me through multiple other comparable homes in the area to make sure I was making an informed decision. The negotiation and settlement process were seamless. Rich worked extremely diligently to get me what I was asking for in my negotiations and move the deal to settlement.

        - WilliamLynch91
      • I am a first time home buyer and initially met Rich while viewing a home he was selling, though the home was already on contract he still showed it and boy was I glad to have met him. Rich is extremely well versed in the market and his strategies are second to none. He stuck with me for quite a few months viewing all kinds of houses and every time was prompt and courteous. He gave me all kinds of tips and things to look for. Being a first time home buyer I was a bit naive and not once did I feel like Rich was "just going for the sale". I went with my own financing that ended up being a horror story when a pre-approval was no longer approved. Rich immediately sent me to his team of local financing which was a GREAT experience. He even recommended an inspector as well as an insurance agent. Everyone he sent me to was extremely helpful and personal. I will definitely be referring Rich to all my friends and family! Thanks Rich!

      • I first met Rich at an open house for a different home. He was friendly/personable and it was clear that he enjoyed being in the real estate business. I researched his credentials and with his many years in this business (30+) I decided to have him represent me. We wanted to stay in our neighborhood (Daventry). We visited various homes and Rich was able to point out potential trouble spots and the pros/cons of each property. He was thorough with his observations. Due to the limited inventory in our area he went door to door to see what homes may potentially be coming on the market prior to being listed. He was easily accessible as well by phone or email. The other thing is that many of the purchase hurdles have been streamlined by him. We wanted that streamlined process and went with his recommended home inspector, mortgage broker, and title company. These ancillary services were also engaged and easy to contact especially the mortgage broker. With his help we were able to package together a competitive offer and have since closed on a home in our neighborhood. I would use Rich again.

      • Rich DiGiovanna sold the house next to mine a couple of years ago. I contacted him about selling my house and he was able to put the property on the market very quickly. He marketed the property on the internet using professionally produced photographs and a very effective video presentation. Within about 5 to 10 days, there were multiple offers on the property. He was able to sell my house for more than I thought possible, and he very competently negotiated for the full asking price. The entire sale process was done in a very professional and satisfactory manner.

        - eraymac255
      • We have previously used Rich to sell and buy homes. This time, as before, he did an excellent job walking us through the steps to prepare our home for the market. He gave us names of people to make repairs, clean the carpets and refinish wood floors. All of the workers that he recommended did a great job at a reasonable price. The photos and virtual tour of our home showed it off beautifully! Rich was responsive to our questions, and his assistant handled the closing time line with no glitches. We are so pleased with the quick and easy sale of our home, and highly recommend Rich to anyone who is ready to buy or sell a home!

      • Rich DiGiovanna is a friendly, hard working results driven Real Estate Professional. He has a vast knowledge of the industry as well as the local market. Rich and his wife Eileen, a Property Management Specialist, had previously helped me rent and ultimately sell another piece of property and so I didn't hesitate to contact him about selling my home of 23 years. Because of his marketing and advertising strategy, Rich was able to bring in a very acceptable contract before the house went on the market. Rich was there every step of the way to answer any questions, make recommendations and make sure the whole process ran smoothly. All my phone calls and emails were answered promptly from my initial contact with Rich to even after we left the settlement table. I will contact Rich for all my future real estate needs.

      • A friend suggested I call Rich and see if he could help me. My husband had passed away and I needed to sell my house quickly. Rich came over and I was impressed with his knowledge of the area and what the market in my neighborhood was like. Rich was very knowledgeable and together we strategized to get top dollar for my home. I was pleased with his sympathy to my situation and how confident he was that he could sell my house quickly and at a price I would be pleased with. After that initial visit I had trust in using his services with my best interest in mind. So true to his word that he would work aggressively to sell the house he had a photographer come to the house and post a "tour the home" online as an advertising effort to generate buyers. Within a week I had an offer on the house that was in the price range I wanted. Rich had to use his massive negotiating skills and got the contract negotiated that was agreeable to me and we had a closing date. Rich and his team kept me informed throughout the process so that I didn't have to be in the dark about what was going on. When I had questions he was reachable at all times and happy to discuss whatever question I had. So if you are selling your home and need a realtor with 30 + years experience, I suggest you contact Rich. His compassion and tireless efforts with the entire selling process resulted in less anxiety and stress for me. If I need a realtor in the future I will definitely call my friend Rich.

      • We came to know Rich when I was trying to see a house he has listed. We were in process of working with other agents but once met Rich, there was no going back. He impressed us at the very first meeting with his extensive knowledge of the local market, honest assessments and professional expertise. We knew Rich was the guy to go for to find a right house and we decided to work together. He was tireless and available round the clock, weekday, weekend, morning or evenings or even nights. Together we probably saw over 50 houses before we found our current home. Despite this, Rich was always ready to help and move further, never pressing to buy any property that we did not fall love into. One of the many attributes he distinguishes himself is that he will always remain positive and will keep looking and looking for you until you find your perfect home, never pressing you to settle on something that you did not exactly liked.. And always available for you when you need. Additionally, his knowledge of the local market of Fairfax area, contacts, and negotiating skills are superb and will prove very handy especially when you have to move really fast in a competitive market. We are glad to have met Rich and are now happily settling in this great Barrington neighborhood. We will certainly go back to him in any future needs for selling or buying

      • Rich marketed our home with a professionally produced video and still photos that made all the difference, and generated over 5K video views and tens of thousands of views on Facebook ads. He provided us with weekly online marketing status reports to keep us in the loop and provided feedback from potential buyers and other realtors that showed our property. Rich's integrity, engaging personality, experience, client trust, negotiating skills, knowledge of the neighborhood and area, and creative ideas on staging generated tremendous traffic in marketing our property. We received multiple offers during one of the more challenging markets. We highly recommend Rich if you want a top-notch realtor who uses his skills effectively and leverages social media to the max. Our overall selling experience working with Rich was truly outstanding.

        - krukar
      • This is our second home where Rich has been the listing agent. He approaches his role with great enthusiasm and has demonstrated a real knack for turning over every stone in both showing the home and in finding ready, willing and able buyers. His marketing strategies are thorough and effective, in particular advising how best to stage the home for the important video (the modern way to first see a home) and for actual in home walkthroughs. He's direct, honest and to the point while still being an excellent listener sensitive to a sellers desires and open to being very creative in solving each issue that might come up. His experience and timeliness are valuable assets in making these important financial decisions. If you are looking for a strong advocate who will scour the market for solid buyers while working to get top dollar for your home then Rich is the guy.

      • Having already been a satisfied customer of Rich DiGiovanna, we contacted him and asked him to sell our house. Rich helped us through the entire process from start to finish. He gave us excellent advice about what to fix and what not to fix prior to listing and referenced some good contractors at our request. When the house was nearly ready to list we entered a formal contract with Rich and he explained in detail the entire process and what to expect in each phase. He was with us as each phase progressed, providing excellent advice along the way. One thing I especially liked was that Rich was always willing to go the extra mile to keep the deal moving and on track right up to close. I would recommend Rich DiGiovanna to anyone in Northern Virginia who wishes to sell or purchase a home.

      • Rich was one of two agents we interviewed and we liked him immediately. He gave us great advice about what we needed to do to make our house market for the most. He also was open to pricing suggestions based on our knowledge of the area. He was always available to answer questions and address concerns we had. We sold our house for more than we originally thought we would and sold it in one month. Thanks Rich!
