Rave Reviews

Vicki Johnston helped my wife, Lisa and I find and purchase our first home, and I truly can’t imagine the experience going any better! Buying your first home can be scary, but Vicki made the whole process extremely painless. She acted as a consultant and advisor for Lisa and me and actually helped us generate a clearer picture of the type of place we wanted to call ‘home,’ based on our lifestyles and work schedules. We never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. If we ever need to sell our house or purchase a new one, we won’t hesitate to call Vicki again.

My husband and I were first-time home buyers and overwhelmed with the process. When we began working with Vicki, those feelings of frustration completely went away. Vicki understood exactly what we wanted in a home and honed in on the perfect properties right away! She emailed us new properties daily and worked around our schedules to show us homes we were interested in. When we found a house that we loved, Vicki was able to negotiate a great deal for us and explain every step along the way! We felt very confident and comfortable with the buying process with Vicki and now we’re in a home that we love!

As a first time home buyer, it was a completely refreshing and confidence building experience to work with a consummate professional like Vicki. She recognized that I was a cautious buyer with a perfectionist streak and encouraged that we overturn every promising stone while scouring my targeted neighborhood. The condo that I ultimately purchased is a brilliant fit for my lifestyle and very much a testament to her wide knowledge of neighborhoods in the greater DC area, strong acumen for the real estate business, and encouragement that a patient approach would yield best results. As a single person, I needed a foil off whom to bounce ideas and weigh pros and cons. Vicki was indispensable in this respect. She was recommended to me by a family friend, and I will absolutely recommend her to friends and family for future home searches.

Hello all, as many of you have probably read on the blog, Steve and I put our condo on the market last week. We have really loved living at Madrigal and are definitely sad to go, but we are now in need of more space and are headed to the suburbs.

As I mentioned, we listed our condo last week and are happy to announce that it is already under contract! We wanted to share this information with you because we wholeheartedly believe this is solely because of the great work of Vicki Johnston, who represented us as our Real Estate Agent and also happens to be an owner here at Madrigal.

Steve and I have both worked in various parts of real estate, we own rental properties in Maine, and definitely feel as though we are fairly knowledgeable in real estate. This being said, we realize that in the past, we have been difficult for past Real Estate Agents to please and have handled many of our transactions ourselves, which can be both extremely time consuming and very stressful. This time, however, our experience was amazing! We met with Vicki, explained our situation and had our condo listed within a couple of days. She helped us “stage” our condo to show at its greatest potential and she also went through our pricing options. She was right on with pricing and as a result, we had a contract signed within 5 days of our condo being listed on the market!

She is a tireless advocate for her clients and we have recommended her to countless friends who are in the market to purchase and/or sell. Every, single person we have recommended her to, raves about her knowledge, how personable she is, and her amazing work ethic.

I wanted to post this “testimonial” of sorts to the blog as I would highly recommend her to you all should you consider selling your current unit and/or are in the market for another home.

This thank you is long overdue for Vicki Johnston who sold my condo in the Madrigal Lofts within days of going on the market last November. She is the most professional, organized, kind, and knowledgeable real estate agent I have ever worked with. We are already using her again to sell my husband’s condo in Georgetown (let her/me know if you are interested.

She is a dream come true for busy sellers. She organized my entire apartment, staged it beautifully, and even left the additional ceiling lights she installed in the unit for the next owner. I’ve worked with several real estate agents and none of them have been as professional as Vicki. I highly recommend her for any person wanting to buy or sell. I’ll be using her for years to come!

For those of you who are interested, I bought my place for $494,900 and sold it for $549,900 which was my listing price. It was under contract within two weeks and I really can’t say enough great things about Vicki Johnston. She knows how to market our units and is very professional and efficient.

Warm Regards,

It’s easy to be an “amazing client who held strong..”  when your realtor is VICKI JOHNSTON! Vicki supported me me throughout the journey.  I couldn’t have done it without her.  Originally, when I found out that I was being transferred, I asked Vicki for help with renting out my condo because I didn’t think that I’d be able to sell it.  She said “no, I think that you can sell it now”  and she was right!

I cannot speak more highly of Vicki Johnston. She handled the sale of my with the utmost professionalism. I moved from the DC area shortly after I listed my home and Vicki readily took care of all the details in my abscence and kept in communication with any updates.

Vicki helped me buy a 1 bedroom condo in Logan Circle. She knows the DC area extremely well and offered useful advice on things that were must haves vs. wants. She accompanied me to multiple locations and was patient with me. The DC housing market is very competitive and she advised me to make an offer with an aggressive close, which in the end, was why my offer was accepted over other offers. I would highly recommend using Vicki if you are looking for a home.
