Testimonials

Pat and Sheri Lofton -

If you are in need of a personable, professional and highly competent real estate professional, we would highly recommend JB Kirkland. From the moment we met JB, we knew we had found someone who is highly personable, detail oriented, and who could represent us very effectively as we sold our family home.

From our very first interaction, JB’s warm and genuine disposition made her very easy and enjoyable to communicate and work with. Throughout the process of selling our home, JB was highly proactive and detailed as she represented us as sellers and presented our house in the most positive light.

She was highly effective in helping us price and stage our home so that it looked welcoming, spacious and attractive for a new family. Her sharp sense of style, thoughtful furniture replacement, and general home staging helped us quickly organize our home so that it appeared spacious and inviting.

JB’s real estate network, her keen sense of marketing, and appropriate and competitive pricing of our home were all instrumental in us receiving and accepting an offer after our house had been on the market for less than a week.

JB is a highly professional and personable individual who we thoroughly enjoyed working with.  We would certainly retain her in the future whether as a buyer or a seller, and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a highly qualified, knowledgeable, competent, detail oriented, and talented real estate professional.  JB is simply the best!

JB is a pleasure to work with.

We met last December…At this point it was just before Christmas and a home purchase wasn’t at the top of the to-do list. Putting up the Christmas tree in our current residence however, confirmed the fact that our existing space was – shall we say – tight.

After the New Year, we looked at several units in the Parkfairfax community from fully renovated units to units that were totally original. We viewed many during the daylight hours, but there were evening viewings too. And, on some of the coldest days of the season…

In mid-February, we put an offer on the unit we would own. She introduced us to the mortgage broker and helped get us started on all the requirements. All this as I boarded a plane for South Asia for 24 days and Mike boarded a plane for training in North Carolina for six weeks. All matters great and small were handled “over the wire” with email, texts, and digital signatures.

Once we closed on the new property, the question of how to get the existing unit prepped and rented was a big concern for us. Once again, JB to the rescue. After signing the necessary documents, we used JB and Keller Williams to offer the unit for rent. This was a huge weight off my back as I was still traveling extensively. JB was able to recommend workmen, cleaners, and a management company that could handle everything going forward. The best part however, was the unit was on the market for three days when we received a viable tenant.

Our home buying – and renting – experience with JB and [LUXA Properties] was top notch. I would definitely recommend them for any of your real estate needs. Why? Because JB is a pleasure to work with.

Working with JB to find a tenant for my Old Town Alexandria property (under an extremely tight timeline) was a pleasure from start to finish. She has the experience, local knowledge and decisiveness to handle any situation. Trustworthy and tenacious, polished and professional – she does not shirk from “telling it like it is” in any situation but she always recommends a solution (this is critical for me a landlord living on the west coast).

JB embraces technology and all tools available. I was amazed at how quickly she found me the perfect tenant. I cannot imagine ever working with anyone else. I give JB my highest possible recommendation.

JB, your depth of knowledge of the real estate market in Northern VA far exceeded my expectations. You removed all of my preconceived notions about realtors only being focused on making a sale. Your ability to locate dwellings that met all of the known criteria (i.e. price 500k+, location) and my non-negotiables such as floor plan, parking, and closets that I didn’t know I had were simply amazing. The relationships you have established with highly qualified and respected home inspectors and lenders provides clients such as myself with a sense of security. Your availability, timeliness and flexibility made the search for a home stress free.

Jeffrey and Margaret Cheliak

As Canadian citizens being posted to the United States with two young children, we felt 100% comfortable and confident in the services of JB Kirkland and the team at Luxa Properties. JB made our house hunting trip from Canada a success, finding the ideal rental property in the location and price range we desired, under very tight timelines.

She was extremely effective in initially getting to know us, which helped define and prioritize our tastes and needs, which all fed into her systematic showcase of potential properties. This coupled with her expert knowledge of the region and local market enabled her to find us the perfect location, with amendments and upgrades, in less than a week.

Her professionalism, dedication and attention to detail, in addition to her being a very personable, patient and honest person made our experience in the United States feel like this is our new home. We will highly recommend her services, vouching personally that she and the team at Luxa properties are the best in their field, to all cadres of the US, Canadian and Diplomatic community. Quite simply if you are renting, selling or buying in the Washington DC or Northern Virginia region, JB Kirkland and the team at Luxa properties are the only real estate firm you need to be in contact with to obtain everything you need and more, period.
