"We interviewed multiple agents before choosing Ankie & Dana to represent us. We couldn't be happier with the decision. They both have great strengths and knowledge about the business. They were very communicative about every step in the
process. Having both of them there for open houses was the best, so someone could be on each floor representing us. They got us full asking price in 1 week! We made the best decision using them as our selling agents and hope to use them again
in the future!"
"We interviewed 10 agents before choosing Dana to sell our house. We initially wanted to use a discount broker in the hopes to save some money. I couldn't be happier we decided to NOT use these discount brokers and pay for Dana's expertise.
Dana got 30k MORE than the discount guys would list our house for and was so knowledgeable the entire way. You get what you pay for and I am HAPPY I paid for Dana!"

less intimidating. They worked hard to help us make a strong offer and were always responsive to any of our questions. They never made us feel like an inconvenience and celebrated all the little steps along the way. We highly recommend this
dynamic duo and will definitely use them again when the time comes!"

above and beyond to make that goal happen in under 2 months. Ankie clearly had our best interest in mind when showing us homes and providing recommendations that as first time home buyers that was invaluable. Our closing went smoothly and was
made possible on time due to their constant engagement in our process. We will be lifetime clients of Ankie and Dana!"

~ Chanteel & Todd
"Ankie and Dana not only sold my house earlier this year, they also assisted me in purchasing my next home. Naturally, it was a very emotional and high-stress time, especially when doing both a sale and a buy back-to-back. Not only were they
incredibly professional, knowledgeable and diligent, but they were also very sensitive to my feelings--they advised, but never took over...everything was ultimately my choice. Thankfully, I followed my intuition to rely on their judgement
which worked out in my favor--my house is sold and I am very happily settled in my new home. I would not hesitate a second to recommend them to anyone."
"Let me beginning by saying these two are amazing, hard working and excellent realtor team! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to list and buy a home! Thank you Ankie and Dana for everything!!!"
"We truly enjoyed working with Ankie to find our new home! She is extremely knowledgeable and made the home buying process seamless. Highly recommend!"
~ Regan & Clint
"Ankie and Dana worked tirelessly on our behalf. Starting with the research they did to establish our home's best selling points and determining a competitive price and the staging ideas Ankie presented, they asked a lot of themselves and us
to sell our house, but it paid off.
They encouraged us but kept our expectations realistic for the time frame given a summer slump in the market. To fight the slump, Ankie staged four open houses, and we had a full-price offer after about ten days.
They are really on your side!"
~ Matt & Sara
"Well all I can say is you two made it happen in three days. What a team! We want to thank you for taking control and pulling the pieces together in a timely manner. Several times we got together to dot "I's" and cross the "T's" to make sure
the sale would come together with no problems. With that fine effort the house sold on time, with no hitches or problems. With a good selling and "Sales Team" you can't go wrong!"
~ Roger & Evelyn

"Dana Parnello and his wife Ankie helped us secure our 1st VA home purchase in the summer of 2015. They were very professional and great overall people to work with throughout the process. They also helped us with a contact for a successful
re-fi down the road. We highly recommend their services to anyone!! We will be using them again if we ever decide to move in the future.
Thank you Dana & Ankie!!"
~ KJM M.
"Dana and Ankie were nothing short of amazing when it came to selling our home. They were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful during a very chaotic and stressful time. They took in to consideration that our family has a baby and a dog, a
stay at home mom, and a work from home dad when scheduling everything. Ankie was so patient in helping us stage our home and provided lots of fun accessories to add that special touch. They were both always available via phone or text any
hour of the day. Dana was persistent when it was necessary and always thoughtful of our needs. They are a fantastic team and work together beautifully."
"Ankie and Dana are amazing Realtors. They work with you as a team to buy and/or sell your house. They are honest, genuine and have excellent integrity.
They work extremely hard to represent your interests and are highly knowledgeable in all aspects of your buying/selling, tracking down issues and keeping you well informed.
Great professionals!!! Highly recommend! "

~ Samantha C.
"Ankie and Dana were both wonderful throughout the whole process. Both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home went very smoothly. They are both very knowledgeable and were available whenever we had questions. I was
especially impressed with how they handled the sale of our old house. They came over and helped us with staging and even landscaping. Our house sold the first weekend it was listed for a price much higher than we had ever imagined. We are so
glad we trusted them, it paid off big time! They were willing to work with our timeline and were very optimistic that our home would see quickly for a great price. It did."

"...the most impressive brokers' open I have ever seen"
~ Managing Broker at a Competing Firm
"Dana Parnello and Ankie Stroes have been a fantastic dynamic duo who has helped us not only sell our house from 900+ miles away; they also helped us secure our future home.
Together they were able to assist us with getting the house prepped for sale- providing us recommended businesses to help complete tasks and furnishing us with a detailed timeline on what was being done to ensure we could hit our listing date as planned.
Dana and Ankie definitely stood behind their marketing plans and we were overjoyed with the great turn out we had for the planned open houses and broker's open. Their communication was spot on as they anticipated our many questions and updated us throughout the entire process; a must since we were so far away.
Dana and Ankie were very accommodating when we had last minute trip to the Seattle area. We were able to see the houses that we had narrowed down online. We were able to find the perfect home and they helped us put together the most thoughtful offer including extensive documentation to illustrate the reason behind the number that was presented.
We've been beyond impressed with the level of professionalism, partnership and support this duo has provided. We would highly recommend Dana and Ankie and plan on using them for any future needs."
