If you are willing to listen to professionals who sell homes for a living, and, if you are willing to check your emotions at the door, Debbie McGuire and Vivian Lyons are right for you. After reviewing our property, they made several suggestions to get it market ready. The most significant of their recommendations was to paint the oak kitchen cabinets white ($3,800). That was tough to swallow, but we did it.
One of the most important things that Debbie suggested was to tour the competing properties. After completing the tour, we were in a much better place to determine a listing price that would make our property stand out. Had we not done that, we could have fallen into the pit of over pricing. That’s where checking your emotions at the door is important. Who doesn’t think their property is worth at least what they paid for it, or, at the very least, more than the market wants to pay? Result...the house sold in less than a week (in December!), a hair below full listing price, and closed in 30 days, with a well-qualified buyer.
Debbie was aggressive in the counteroffer she proposed and worked seamlessly with the buyers’ broker to navigate the inspection report, radon report and other details. An interesting sidebar is that Debbie and Vivian were the listing brokers when we bought the property. They bring class and experience to the table.
Terrilynn is simply the best, hands down the person to call to sell your house. I needed to sell my house but wanted to do some upgrades. Finding the time to get quotes and references was not something I was looking forward to, no fear Terrilynn managed everything for me!! I didn't have to stress about anything, and of course she was on top of current pricing trends and her marketing was spot on. I was worried about getting my house sold in a timely matter - something you don't need to worry about if you go with Terrilynn. My house sold in 5 days with multiple offers and almost all of them over the asking price!!! One of the best things Terrilynn does it help you select the offer she feels has the best chance of getting to closing without any hassles. Why would you go with any other realtor? Terrilynn Kelley is hands down the best in the business.
I cannot say enough about how amazing the experience of buying my new house was due to having Terrilynn as my Realtor. It had been 20 years since I bought my current home so I was blind to the process and our sale had quite a bit of negotiation. I can tell you first hand if you want someone that is 100% on your side, Terrilynn is the Realtor for you! She is a top notch expert in her market and her profession. I never felt like she had any other clients when I was working with her - she was always so responsive and patient. I am moving on to selling my current home with her as my agent and I can tell you with 100% certainty when it’s time to buy my next home it will be with Terrilynn!
Terrilyn Kelly was more than an agent, but rather a knowledgeable professional who understands the business from multiple angles. Being new to this area, the process was a little overwhelming, but Terrilyn coached and educated us every step of the way. Terrilyn was extremely proactive, passionate, communicative, and provided market value advice that allowed us to make a suitable offer that was immediately accepted, despite the competitive landscape. Our lender was even impressed. My family is most grateful for this experience. If you are looking for an agent. Terrilynn is a must!
As first-time home-buyers, my wife and I felt very comfortable with the entire process thanks to Terrilynn and her team. They were very responsive to us, and helped guide us through the many challenges we encounter to close on our first home. Even after the fact, we can still reach out and know that Terrilynn is there to provide us the guidance with anything.
Second home that I’ve purchased with Terrilyn. We recently bought a new construction and had a few issues at closing. Terrilyn negotiated for us and ensured we didn’t close until certain things were done to our standards. This continued up until at the table for closing. Highly recommend her!
Working with Terrilyn was simply amazing! She is very knowledgeable about the housing industry and guided me through the entire process as a first time homeowner. She was always available to answer my millions of questions and continues to answer my millions of questions even post purchase. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to a friend.
Terrilynn was an amazing realtor. She was calm and supportive throughout the entire process and was able to negotiate an incredible purchase price for our home. We have and will continue to recommend her for years to come.
Debbie was aggressive in the counteroffer she proposed and worked seamlessly with the buyers’ broker to navigate the inspection report, radon report and other details. They bring class and experience to the table.
Fabulous! Thank you so much for being patient with us and our needs for this move. It's been very nice working with you - especially when you saved us from that other house!!!
Debbie is knowledgeable, easy to talk to and gives unbiased advice on how to market and price your home
This is my fourth time working with the Lyons McGuire team; buying and selling homes for us in Great Falls, Reston and Herndon. They are great to work with, always protecting your best interest, and bring lots of experience.
Debbie and her team were the best – their advice on home presentation and subsequent photographic presentation helped to invite immediate interest in our home.
We always felt that finding a home our family would be happy in for a long time was more important to you than just getting the deal done; and though we realize you have many clients, we never felt rushed or that we were receiving anything less than your full attention.
Vivian and Debbie are the ultimate professionals. They worked with us to prepare a top notch listing that was specifically tailored to highlight the relevant details of our home, rather than using a generic template.
Professional agent. My husband and I are first home owner. We were very happy to work with her. Terrilynn always answered all our emails or questions quickly. Highly recommended. Thanks again Terrilynn.
Wow! She heard us! It was a big stress relief selling our home. It was very personal to me. Terrilynn heard my concerns and 100% delivered. We could not have asked for a more responsive, caring and results oriented teammate in this process.
Terrilynn and her team are professional, caring, knowledgable, and have incredible attention to detail. Terrilynn guided us in how we could most effectively update our home while being cost effective prior to putting it on the market. She did plenty of research, helping us price our home just right, resulting in two full price offers within days of being on the market. We were amazed at how smoothly the process ran from start to finish, undoubtedly a result of Terrilynn's efforts. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a smooth, positive selling process!
Terrilynn was my only choice when it came time to buy another home. I had previously bought a home with her and in between my brother bought a home from her as well and is very happy with her. Terrilynn has the great skill of being able to communicate to people with varying levels of real estate knowledge. Since this was the second home I had asked her to help me with she already knew my preferences and quickly gave me a list of high quality choices. She took care of everything and it was a very enjoyable, easy process. If I move again she will be my first call.
It was amazing working with Terrilynn, she treated our house like she was buying her own house. She asked for and picked up on things we would have never thought of. She even helped up with the interior designs. I highly recommend working with her, and when I purchase my next home I will be calling her again. Thanks Terrilynn!
Terrilynn was a breath of fresh air as we finally made the decision to sell our property. She was insightful on guiding us on what updates to make to our property to make the impact we needed. Her changes though simple were impactful. Her professionalism is bar none! I was proud to have her represent us in this process. She has mastered the balance of sympathetic and tough on negotiations. Our house sold in 4 Days!! What else can we say!
Professional, diplomatic, and a tough negotiator for her client. Her knowledge of the real estate market in the Ashburn area is unparalleled and the research she conducts to stay on top of the market is impressive. She knows what sells a house and how to get the most money for it. As important, she listens and takes into account her clients personal requirements. In one word: Outstanding.
Terrilynn is a very knowledgeable, professional and caring agent. She worked with me to sell my home in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. She kept things moving forward and kept me informed throughout the entire process. You will be in good hands with Terrilynn. She’s awesome!
