As first time home buyers, my wife and I were considering going it alone, but decided in the end to seek professional help in buying our first house.
Never have I been happier with the decision to go with a professional. the Keri Shull team and our realtor, Melinda Solley, in particular were on point in every respect. She was highly communicative, available when we needed her to be, and respected our budget and home preferences entirely.
When the time came to make an offer, Melinda advised us well, and represented us well in negotiations with the seller. She was able to keep us above the bidding with sound advise as to how much we needed to offer to get the house. The result was that we recently moved in to the perfect home for us, and paid less than it was appraised for. I would absolutely recommend Melinda and this team to anyone buying in northern Virginia
