Jessica helped us buy our first home. We can’t say enough about her interpersonal skills. She was thoughtful, diligent, and always had a smile on. She stuck with us for months while we searched for the perfect home. At no time during this process did she push us or seem uninterested. In fact, it was just the opposite. She got to know us and would give us tailored personalized advice on each property we looked at. She was our biggest cheerleader throughout our search, and we really felt like she was invested in us finding a house. She made a huge difference and kept us positive throughout the search. In addition to her strong interpersonal skills, she has impressive technical knowledge of home construction and home loans. I work in the engineering and construction industry and she regularly identified points of merit and concern in the guts of every house we looked at that I didn’t even think of. And when it came time to negotiate our offer, she came up with a compelling strategy that got us a home in a highly competitive market. If we didn’t know better, we would have thought that she was the bank’s mortgage officer with the amount she knew! We strongly recommend Jessica. She is fantastic to work with, has the impressive technical knowledge, and is a pillar of Alexandria.

We’ve now worked with Jessica as Buyers and Sellers. We bought our first home with her and then recently listed that home and bought our new one once our family expanded. She was an excellent resource when it came to the location and listening to our needs with our first home. For our price point, she showed us several options in different neighborhoods around Alexandria. We chose a location that was very competitive and Jessica was invaluable in helping us seal the deal with her connections. Then when it was time to sell that home, we knew immediately that Jessica should be the one to do it. As first time sellers, she helped walk us through the process and negotiations with the buyers. Our home sold before the Open House with Jessica’s suggestions. The home we were buying was contingent on the sale of our current home – and we had 30 days to sell. What could have been a nightmare was an easy process. Jessica is also full of helpful resources – handymen, roofers, and other trusted contractors. She is easy to work with and fun! We love Jessica.
We had been looking for a home in a particular school district with some pretty specific parameters (age and character of the home, number, and size of bedrooms, a home not recently renovated; something we could put our stamp on. Jessica showed us several great homes that WE thought matched our criteria. However, Jessica urged us to see a home that had not yet hit the market. She identified our home, hitting all of our parameters, and it was a perfect fit. She found exactly what we were looking for, and we are so grateful! We could not recommend Jessica more highly as a realtor.
We are so pleased with our experience working with Jessica. The process of selling a home can be really stressful, but her responsiveness, understanding, and ability to take care of so many details for us since we had already moved away from our home, made the process so much less of a worry. We also feel like working with someone who was in our neighborhood gave us the opportunity to reach people that we may not have otherwise. We will definitely recommend Jessica to our friends in Northern VA.
As a first-time home seller, Jessica’s unparalleled knowledge of the Virginia market and her marketing expertise, including having her own professional photographer, was beyond helpful and is unmatched by most realtors. My listing by far surpassed the other listings on the market due to Jessica’s expertise. I highly recommend her to any buyer or seller!
Jessica immediately understood what I was looking for and identified the perfect house for me, even before I was sure it was the right one! As soon as I was ready the process went very smoothly, from putting the contract down to getting the inspection done, and she had very good referrals for several service providers, including the moving company.
Jessica Richardson and the team are great! As a distant homeowner, she advised on and orchestrated tens of quality maintenance projects to get the home ready to sell, staged the house, and even watered the lawn. And, she clearly knew how to do marketing. We had lots of traffic on the first day that produced an over-asking offer. Big thumbs up!

Jessica recently helped us buy and sell our homes. We were nervous about the whole process but she immediately put our minds at ease. She sold our house quickly and was able to negotiate a great deal for us on the purchase. She is an expert and we are truly grateful for everything she has done for our family.
I loved that Jessica and Patricia went above and beyond to help us buy a home from across the country and definitely helped us in making our decision. Everything went smoothly, with no complications. From the referral to a financing company to signing paperwork. Everything was easier than I thought!
Jessica is one of the most knowledgeable and skilled agents that I have ever worked with. She is both kind and intuitive to how she approaches the sale process, which in the end was extremely valuable to our family. We love Jessica.
Amazing doesn’t say enough. I can’t compliment Jessica more highly. Great fix-up advice: arranged and managed fix-up vendors. Great comparable study. Flawless execution of the close.
