Pearson Smith Realty Testimonials

Lizzie was a great real estate agent for my wife and me.

From the start, she showed concern and answered every question we had. This is my third house purchased and I could not be any happier that I selected her. She is extremely professional and proficient. Most importantly, she was very honest. I understand that her pay is based on how much she can sell the house. I recall attempting to buy a house but she notified me it was overprice and I would be an unwise investment at the asking price and even my price. She was right as the house went down over 85k two months later. She really does know her job and I feel like I have made a friend in the process. Thank you Lizzie

Buyer, VA

My wife and I found Liz Helmig to be a smart and capable agent.

Buying our home in Manassas was just a breeze thanks to her. Liz made it almost idiot-proof for me, and it's not that I have a room-temp IQ or anything. It's just that my job keeps me really hopping and the idea of additional distractions is just not at all appealing. But I didn't have to worry about that thanks to her. Liz one of those people who make you ask yourself, "why can't everyone be as personable and professional as she is?" She's just dynamite. You can't go wrong doing business with Lizzie Helmig. I heartily endorse and recommend her.

Mark & Ann McCarty, Manassas, VA

I had the very the very good fortune to receive Lizzie's card in the mail as my lease came to an end.

She is extraordinarily patient, personable, thoughtful, and puts her clients first. She always follows-through and goes the extra mile. If you are new the DC/Northern Virginia area, I wholeheartedly recommend using her. And, if ... when the time comes for me to sell -- she is the first person I will call.

Rob Landis, Alexandria, VA

She constantly kept me updated.

She made the process pretty much painless. I was a first time buyer and had no idea what I was doing. She really helped guide me through the whole process. Highly recommend her!

Conor Tremaine, Springfield, VA

I had the pleasure of working with Lizzie to purchase my first home.

I’m not usually a review writer, but I had to make an exception for Lizzie as she kept me completely informed and was very attentive through the entire process. What I liked most about her was the responsiveness, knowledge and communication. From my very first meeting with Lizzie, I felt comfortable coming to her with my seemingly endless questions, and I can honestly say that I would not have gotten the house without her guidance. I cannot recommend Lizzie highly enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I highly recommend entrusting Lizzie with the biggest financial decision of your life. She won’t disappoint. Thank you Lizzie!

Buyer, Burke, VA

Liz is fantastic.

As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous and definitely needed guidance. Liz was incredible and guided me every step of the way. She has extensive knowledge of the areas and markets throughout NOVA and I was constantly impressed by her expertise in construction and the inner workings of the homes. She truly listened to what was important to me and in about 30 days, helped me find and close on the perfect home.

Buyer, Centreville, VA

Buyer, Springfield, VA

We had already found the home we wanted and contacted Liz to help us buy it.

Since we were buying a house for the first time, we needed a lot of guidance, and Liz was very knowledgeable and professional. She was very responsive to inquiries and requests for showings and moved very fast to help us submit a competitive offer. She was very knowledgeable about Virginia closing procedures. She has a great personality and worked well with other parties and was a pleasure to deal with. In the end our buying process went very smoothly and we got a great deal on our new home. We really appreciated Liz' friendly and laid-back attitude all the way. Thanks, Liz!

I had a great experience working with her and highly recommend you to work for any of your needs. Her excellent negotiation skills will help you to get your home with less cash from your pocket!!

Buyer, Fairfax, VA

I have dealt with the real state agents in the past!

But there is no comparison when it comes to Lizzie Helmig. Very quick to response to emails calls/text. Doesn't matter if it was weekend or weekday, she was ready to show us whichever property we wanted to see. Even after we purchase the house she still keeps in touch to make sure everything is going smooth. Highly, highly recommended.

Seller, Springfield, VA

Working with Lizzie was great, she was very knowledgeable and always a phone call away.

She is a true professional in every sense of the word, she was friendly, honest and very patient with us. Any information we asked for on a home, she would have it back to us within an hour. We couldn't be happier and will use Lizzie again when we sell the property.

Buyer, Springfield, VA

Lizzie is very resourceful in her field of work and guided me from start to finish.

She worked very hard on my behalf to go above and beyond to help me find the right property based on my preferences. Lizzie has a great sense of urgency, awareness and time management skills. I would highly recommend Lizzie for anyone who is in the market searching for a new home.

Buyer, Centreville, VA

Lizzie was an amazing realtor for our first home buying experience.

She communicated well with us keeping us, keeping us up to date on the latest developments during the contract process. She also made her self available to us throughout the process for all questions we needed answers to. Her recommendations for contractors to provide services to our new house have been exceptional as well. I highly recommend Lizzie for any real estate investments you may have in Virginia.

Buyer, Alexandria, VA

I hired Lizzie to be my agent in the purchase of my first home.

Since this was my first and only time going through the home-buying process, I had to rely on my instincts in deciding who would be the best agent for my needs. I’m pleased to say – now that I’m settling into my new place – that my instincts were spot on because Lizzie did a terrific job. She is very knowledgeable, responsive, and always professional. She got the job done, and she got it done right. She was indispensable, and I’m happy to recommend her.

Buyer, Arlington, VA

The home buying process can be extremely stressful but Lizzie Helmig was a blessing from God.

One of my family members recommended her to assist me during my first home buying process. I was always able to reach her by phone; she quickly responded to all of my emails; and she worked extremely hard at closing to make sure all parties were communicating. I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling home. She is more than just some real estate agent, I actually consider her as a friend. My new home is amazing and my family is so happy.

Rodney & Shaunte Tune, Woodbridge, VA

I sold and purchased a home with Lizzie and she did a great job with both.

She was always available when I had questions, whether I emailed, text, or called she promptly responded. The experience of selling and purchasing a home can be stressful, but she did her best to keep it at a minimum. When I am ready to sell and purchase again I will definetly use Lizzie and would recommend her to everyone!

Seller & Buyer, Manassas, VA

I had to sell my property remotely and needed a knowledgable local realtor that can handle the sale with minimal interaction.

Lizzie did an excellent job of preparing, managing the repairs, doing all the leg works, and interacting with property manager/title company/sellers. I could not have sold the house without her attention to the details. If you need someone to represent your interest in a real estate transaction, I highly recommend her.

Seller, Fairfax, VA

I highly recommend Lizzie Helmig to ANYONE looking for a home/condo to purchase in the Northern Virginia area.

Lizzie is professional, an expert in NOVA, and a pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and truly listens to her clients needs/wants/wishes and tailors the homes she shows to what I was looking for. 5 stars across the board! Thank you!!

Buyer, Alexandria, VA

My husband and I recently bought a townhouse with Lizzie guiding us and representing us throughout the process.

What a true gift she was (and is!) to us! This was our first home buying experience. It was a bit stressful, especially due to a lack of communication on the part of the seller's team. Lizzie handled it all very calmly and graciously, reassuring us at the right times and also firmly representing our wishes to the other party. She responded extremely quickly to all communication. Lizzie is a very professional agent and also a genuinely kind person. We really appreciate her and the work she did for us. We would highly recommend her as an agent.

Buyer, Reston, VA

Lizzie is very experienced in the north Virginia real estate market.

She is very hard working and has always been pleasant and easy to work with. She understood my needs and worked diligently to meet them. Even after the sale was completed I needed her assistance with a couple of items related to the sale. She was very prompt in her response and provided valuable guidance.

Buyer, Oakton, VA

In 2014 Lizzie was recommended to us by the mortgage broker.

We immediately liked her. She is very warm & friendly while extremely professional. She sought to find out about our family first and then our needs as a homeowner. In purchasing our home she provided great input and feedback and a completely pleasant experience. Because of that when we needed to sell our home we choose to use her services again. Though selling a home can be stressful working with Lizzie allowed us to rest at ease. She is always very timely in her communication most of the time reaching out to us before we would even think about something. She is well respected in the industry and also provided valuable contacts for work that needed to be completed on the home. I believe because her knowledge of our needs, what buyers look for, the state of market she advised us on what we needed to do to get the house ready and when would be the most optimal to put the house on the market. We sold in 6 days. We highly recommend her any looking for a top notch real estate professional.

Ed Canty, Woodbridge, VA

I can highly recommend Lizzie as your real estate agent.

We sold my mother's house in four days from the initial listing. Lizzie made the process so much easier. She arranged for the landscaping and home repair people as well as the cleaning staff who made the place sparkle. All of these vendors were thorough, reliable and affordable. Lizzie was always available to check on things which eased my mind since the house was vacant. She is very knowledgeable about what issues the home inspection would target as well as the financing and lender issues. I almost wish I had another house to sell in Virginia so I could be working with her again. She is delightfully friendly and profoundly dedicated to doing the job right.

Seller, Alexandria, VA

I do not believe I could have had a better experience as a first time home buyer.

Lizzie was patient, always responsive, and always accommodating. She went above and beyond. I would absolutely recommend Lizzie and use her expertise on my next home purchase.

Buyer, Centreville, VA

This is our second time working with Lizzie.

Both times, Lizzie has impressed me with her professionalism, communication, efficiency, and most importantly, kindness. I cannot speak more highly of how thoughtful and kind Lizzie is.

Seller & Buyer, Fairfax, VA

Have cycled through 6 + real estate buy / sell transactions in a couple of years while working with Lizzie.

At every step of the way through the process, Lizzie helped as a true partner to focus, work through a variety of contracts, financial matters, dealing with contractors and HOA matters to bring deals to fair and productive results for both buyers and sellers in each transaction. Have always appreciated her widespread connections with other support professionals in the business adding tremendous value and keeping us sane!

Seller & Buyer, Springfield, VA

We had a wonder experience working with Lizzie in selling our TH.

She took care of everything and made the process as smooth as possible. Lizzie got our home under contract in 1 day and met the estimated sales price in that contract. Prior to listing, she got contractor quotes, managed the contractors, and even made trips to Lowes. After listing, she was very knowledgeable in the overall process and especially effective at posturing for the next negotiation. I highly recommend Lizzie and her services!

Jason Carey, Fairfax, VA

Five-star ratings should be rare in order to indicate truly exceptional quality of service and in Lizzie's case the rating is completely appropriate.

She came recommended to us by a friend and it was instantly apparent why. This first thing we noticed was just how nice she is; easily approachable and welcoming. We already had a property in mind when we first met with Lizzie but she took the time to find out what we were looking for in a house and helped us sift through the many houses available in the area. When we told her we wanted to submit an offer she quickly acted on it that same evening, and a good thing too since houses in the neighborhood often sell quickly. She walked us through the entire process, keeping in touch through phone, e-mail, text, and in person meetings when necessary. We knew we could contact her at any time with questions and she would either already know the answer or would find out and let us know quickly. She is an excellent negotiator, professional and courteous while direct and firm, exactly what one needs in an advocate. It's hard to imagine someone more suited to the job. Perhaps the most lasting quality was the fact that Lizzie always seemed to care about our success. One can do a job well and be worthy of a recommendation but Lizzie put a personal touch on the experience which made what seemed an almost impossibly intimidating prospect of buying a first home into an easy and even pleasant experience. We come away with peace of mind and a house and we hope Lizzie will accept our most sincere appreciation and strongest recommendation.

Buyer, Herndon, VA

Lizzie is a fantastic and knowledgeable professional.

I highly recommend her. She helped me prepare the home for sale, as well as had a recommendation for other highly useful professionals that made the process fast and smooth.

T. Alston, Fairfax VA

Lizzie and her team (Diana, Patrick, and Ben) were outstanding.

All of them went above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend her as a realtor. She worked seemingly endlessly and was always responsive to my questions and concerns.

Buyer, Woodbridge, VA

Lizzie Helmig is the complete professional.

She knows the real estate market and understands and is current to the real estate trends. Lizzie listens to her clients, is calm, patient, compassionate and thorough. After 30 years in our home, my husband and I were looking to sell our house and relocate. Lizzie took care of everything, patiently answered all of our questions and concerns and made the process easy. I completely trust her and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Seller, Fairfax, VA

Lizzie was great; she helped me through the purchase process with two properties (one fell through due to a low appraisal).

We landed a house in Fairfax County for the price of a townhouse!!!

Garrett Smiley & Ninsa Perez, Centreville, VA

Calm, consistent, knowledgeable, professional and an excellent listener.

This is a great realtor I have never met but trusted enough because of her listening skill and calmness that I asked her to select the home I bought. I recommend her to home buyers without reservation. Her assistant was also very helpful.

Buyer, Alexandria, VA

We were hesitant to join with another realtor after the horrendous experience we had three months back.

So when Lizzie was referred to us, we were skeptical but after a series of grilling questions, we decided to give her a chance--and we are so glad we did! She completed a thorough initial walk-through of the home pointing out items we needed to pay attention to and advised us accordingly based on her extensive knowledge. During negotiations, she was diplomatic and represented us well. She (or her assistant, Diana--so on her game, by the way!) always responded within minutes to whatever we needed. As first-time home buyers, Lizzie made us feel comfortable about this major step in our lives. We are so glad we had her on our side helping through every detail of the process! We now recommend Lizzie to every person we speak with interested in the Northern Virginia housing market.

Buyer, Fairfax, VA

We'd been looking for a home since October last year and went through a slew of agents.

We saw many homes in the area and most of our agents either did not care and were just there to open doors for us or they were too eager to close and pushed homes on us that we didn't want. Lizzie however, showed us that what an agent truly does. She demonstrated the value that a realtor can bring to the table by skillfully negotiating on our behalf with our best interests at heart. I fully trust her to always do her best for us. Lizzie helped us buy our first home and we are extremely grateful for her patience, guidance, and kindness. I wish we had crossed paths sooner.

Buyer, Springfield VA

Lizzie is a terrific agent.

When my husband and I were initially going to purchase a home through the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America, she never hesitated to work with us, unlike other agents we had spoken with early on. This really impressed us. It proved that she was deeply committed to people, and not just the sale. She showed us that she cared about our story. Lizzie was patient throughout the long NACA process and always responded to our concerns. When we finally decided to go a different route, she provided great help and background on the process. When we found the home of our dreams, she helped us win it despite an intense bidding war. With a quiet resolve and deep knowledge, Lizzie helped us realize our dream of homeownership. We highly recommend her.
