More Client Love

Jamie and Melissa were an absolutely stellar team

Jamie Petrik and Melissa Govoruhk were an absolutely stellar team to work with in the sale of our parents house in Springfield. They are strategic and tactical at the same time and have tremendous market knowledge to boot. Plus, they're both just genuinely good people. I wouldn't hesitate in the least to work with them again.

We received an offer ABOVE asking price first day of showing

Jay D'Alessandro and Monica Christensen were great to work with. My family needed to move out of state quickly with a newborn due to a job transfer. Jay and Monica organized everything to get our townhouse in Burke updated, cleaned, and landscaping finished after we moved. Their contractor only took 3 weeks to finish. We received an offer over our expected list price our first day showing.

Jamie and Melissa stood out from the rest

Jamie Petrik, Melissa Govoruhk and Team DDA did an amazing job selling our home here in Springfield. We found a big difference in our initial interview process with realtors, and Jamie and Melissa stood out as clear difference makers. From the start they were easy to interact with and had a very clear plan for when and how to put our house on the market. They have an excellent reservoir of people who helped us get our home ready by removing furniture, replacing carpet, and doing handyman jobs. Because these individuals were readily accessible we accomplished this in a little over a week. Jamie and Melissa fast tracked our listing to their network of brokers who brought in numerous clients during a weekend of two open house events. The result was multiple offers over our list price and a signed contract five days after going on the market. Jamie and Melissa are true professionals, knowledgeable, experienced, and always accessible. Their advice and support from first meeting to settlement made our selling experience not just a success but also a pleasure.

We felt supported each step of the way

My husband and I appreciate all that you did to make this purchase come together so quickly. The attention to detail that everyone displayed made this a smooth process. The round the clock communication was clear and easy to follow. We felt supported each step of the way. Your experience and relationships made something that could be confusing and overwhelming feel doable.

Got multiple offers and is sold above listing price

A big Thank You to Mark McConnell at Debbie Dogrul Associates for guiding me through the complex process of preparing to sell my home in Annandale where I lived for 25 years. Your helpful recommendations to create a schedule of items to tackle, select a strategic listing date with a realistic sales price worked out very well. Multiple offers were presented and the house sold above listing price.

Mark follows up, communicates well and gets the job done

I got Mark McConnell's name from a neighbor who gave him high praises and so I decided to meet with Mark. The day I met Mark, I told him about my plans and reasons for selling my town home.  He presented different scenarios of how he can help get top dollars for my home.  He gave comparisons to what sold in the past in my Burke neighborhood, and showed visual aids of where my neighborhood trend is in the past and current market.  Mark  gave ideas and suggestions of what I should do and  shouldn't do and reasons behind it to my advantage.  He seemed to know the value of my neighborhood and he explained to me his ways of communicating the process and progress  to alleviate any stress and anxiety I may have to my satisfaction so I signed on.  I had plans to travel out of the country for a few weeks and so I put all my trust to Marks expertise.  Mark coordinated the construction in the house, the clean up, the design and the yard work to get the house in the market while I was away.  He communicated the progress with me through e-mails and Whats App.  The week the home went to market to show, we got a contract.  Mark follows up, communicates well and gets the job done.

We found him to be a warm and caring person

We had the good fortune of meeting Donovan Kim at an open house and were very impressed with his knowledge of the area and his experience.  We asked him if he could represent us in our search for a home and, of course, he said "Yes!"  We couldn't have picked a better agent!  He helped us find the perfect house and in a price range we could afford.  We were impressed with his prompt response when we had questions, his attention to details and his help in navigating all of the paperwork associated with purchasing a home. Most of all, we found him to be a warm and caring person who goes the extra mile for his clients.  He's the best!

Our house was sold w/ multiple offers above asking price

Mark McConnell was easy to work with, was an expert answering every question, and always responded quickly. The house was marketed well, sold in one weekend with multiple contracts for over the asking price. Mark made selling our home in Burke easy and quick. In addition to being a professional, Mark is an all-around nice guy!

I accepted an offer for over 34K above asking price

I honestly believe that without Mark McConnell I would not have been able to complete my move and sell my house in Fairfax City-Spring 2023. More than his honed real estate skills, his compassion and calm guidance kept me on track. When I hit a wall, Mark personally completed some of the tasks I had committed to. I downsized, moved, and had a generous offer on the 1st day on the market. By the 3rd day I accepted an offer for over 34K above asking price. Thank you, Mark, for all that you do.

I can only rate him as a 5 out of 5 stars -nothing less!

I want to post a review of our experience with selling our Alexandria, VA home of 30 years through Debbie Dogrul Associates, and specifically with our Realtor Mr. Mark McConnell.
We had interviewed three Realtors and quickly concluded that Mark had more energy, market insight, and dedication to our interests than the others. From the start, Mark advised us of the risks and benefits of upgrades to our home that would influence the sale price and help to sell quickly. After hearing the options, it was our decision how much to invest in upgrades and where to draw the line. The "team" that Mark had behind him made our decision easy. He brought in a designer who suggested paint colors, fixtures, and flooring upgrades, then brought in a contractor team to implement all the upgrades we chose, and finally, brought in a furniture/art "staging" crew who made our home look absolutely stunning before the "For Sale" sign went up. My wife and I remarked that our 60-year old home looked brand new and that we wanted to buy it!

Mark held a four-day Open House Thursday through Sunday in mid-April 2023 to open the sale and the MLS listing. We received two offers that weekend and decided to accept one of them. Mark's team then advised us of the remaining steps (appraisal, inspections, etc) and kept us informed of status until a closing date was set. The Title Company that Mark recommended and we chose did excellent work to advise us of all closing costs and made the final step (closing) very easy. We felt 100% satisfied with the entire process and have recommended to our friends and neighbors that they call Mark when they are ready to sell. In the weeks that followed our sale, we watched the sales in the neighborhoods around our home and realized that we did very well with the price that we got for our home.

In summary, I highly recommend Mark McConnell and Debbie Dogrul Associates if you are considering the sale of your home. I can only rate him as a 5 out of 5 stars -nothing less! Give him a call -you will be happy you did!

From the 1st meeting Nathan earned our trust

Nathan Arnold helped us sell our home of 17 years, the only home our 11YO son had ever known. From our very 1st meeting Nathan earned our trust and made us feel comfortable with his knowledge, honesty and upfront demeanor. We needed a ton of work done to the house to get it ready for sale and Nathan coordinated the designer consultation, gave us great advice on what work would see the best return on investment, and stayed on top of the contractor until the work was complete. We had a complicated situation where we were trying to sell out home and purchase a new home at the same time, all over the summer before the school year started. We got a half dozen offers over asking price after the first weekend of open houses. We were able to close on both houses and get settled in with a month to spare. Nathan even provided some assistance ironing out paperwork on our purchase of our next home even though he was only obligated as our selling agent for our old home. I would not hesitate to work with Nathan again on any project. We are really just super-grateful to Nathan for everything he did to make selling our home as stress-free as possible.

I highly recommend Kathlene and the entire DDA Team

Kathlene Holzhauer and the entire team from Debbie Dogrul Associates provided the necessary expertise to prepare and list our single family home in Fairfax. We feel that this resulted in our receiving multiple offers above asking price. Kathlene used her knowledge of the local market and her many contacts with contractors and handymen to help us complete a few improvements before listing. Kathlene listened to our questions and gave us her honest opinions. She never pressured us and was very good at communicating throughout the entire process. We felt very confident in the suggestions that Kathlene gave us. She helped make the entire process run smoothly. If you are looking for a realtor I would highly recommend Kathlene and Debbie Dogrul Associates.
