See What Clients Are Saying
Amy was absolutely incredible. Extraordinarily patient, candid, customer centric, knowledgeable, focused, and very conscientious. She was fabulous to deal with and we sincerely feel lucky to have had her as our agent. Can’t say enough great things about Amy and her team. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a home. Amy has a passion for what she does. It shows in her attention to detail, follow through, and listening to the client.
Amy is truly spectacular. Her dedication and talent made all the difference in getting our family through a very challenging timeline for closing on a new house and selling our current house. Amy guided us through every step of the process on both the buying and the selling side. Her diligence, professionalism, and talent was the reason our house sold in a few days — at list price! It is truly a pleasure to work with her and we will be referring her to all of our friends and family!
From start to finish, our entire experience with Amy was absolutely amazing. She really took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. She helped us sell our townhome and buy our dream home and made this stressful transition seamless. Amy was always very professional and really knows her stuff! She was always willing to take us to see as many homes as we wanted. Amy was very honest, professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing real estate experience. Whether you need to buy, sell, or as in our case both, Amy is the best!
Amy is a strong negotiator and you can tell that her clients are her passion. Amy is so easy to work with and she made the process of selling our home simple and fun. Selling can be a stressful experience, but with Amy I would gladly do it again. We sold our home in 1 weekend and Amy helped us to navigate multiple offers. Amy is extremely responsive and thorough, and I felt like we were part of a team. My husband and I are so grateful to have met and worked with her and are sad that the experience has come to an end! I would strongly recommend her to friends and family.
We can’t say enough good things about Amy. The anxiety I had about trying to purchase a home we’d be happy with, within our price range, in the neighborhoods we wanted, and up against many similarly eager home buyers was totally overwhelming. Amy’s attitude and demeanor was so calming, and put us at ease. And when it came to negotiations she was a total pro. I don’t think we would have landed the house we did with another realtor.
Amy, you made the whole moving process for us so much less stressful than we thought it would be. There were so many times when we were indecisive, impatient and so worried, but Amy handled everything like a pro! She was there when we needed a listening ear, she was there when we had the silliest of concerns, and she was there every step of our way. Her knowledge of the local market is deep, granular and just exceptional. If ever we are in the market again, she is going to be our go-to person!
From start to finish, we were glad every day that Amy was able to guide us through the home sales process. She could not have been more professional and understanding. We could not be more pleased with our choice of realtors. Amy is knowledgeable about the market and incredibly intelligent. She was so well-informed and gracious that we were able to trust her completely with the sale of our home. She helped us make good decisions throughout the entire process. No matter how trivial our concerns were, she was available and patient with us. The best decision that we made when considering the sale of our house was to involve Amy O’Rourke. We feel fortunate that she was our realtor.
We couldn’t be more pleased about our experience working with Amy O’Rourke. We vetted several highly regarded agents in the area, and after thoughtful consideration decided to work with Amy and her team, and we were repeatedly rewarded for our decision. Amy was terrific and we would highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Northern Virginia. We repeatedly trusted her judgement and professionalism at numerous important junctures in the process and were validated every time. Ultimately, Amy helped us secure fantastic terms on the sale of our home, including a selling price nearly 10% over our asking price, zero contingencies, and 2 months of rent-back covered by the buyer, gaining us precious time to search for and secure our next home. With her guidance and reassurance, the post-ratification process went smoothly and without any major drama. The minor issues that did arise were handled professionally and without unnecessary stress or entanglement. It really was a pleasurable experience.
On the “buy side”, Amy was an outstanding guide and counselor! She helped us narrow our home search from across dozens of zip codes (literally!) to a small group of neighborhoods that precisely matched our priorities and interests. She kept us apprised of properties both on the market and off, for us to consider and investigate. She helped us understand the complexities of certain areas/properties and balance potential cost, location, schools, local conveniences and traffic patterns, and a slew of other intrinsic and important dimensions. Amy helped us prepare and negotiate a complex purchase agreement that was fair to all parties and consistent with the parameters that we laid out early in the home buying process. Her competence and experience helped us avoid unnecessary risk, and save untold thousands of dollars on unanticipated repairs and other hidden costs. Ultimately, Amy helped us buy the perfect home for our current stage in life and kept our sanity and our marriage intact through the entire process. She was made for the Real Estate business and true service to her clients.
