About Me

My love of homes, spaces and people and my careers in Interior Design and Real Estate make me a unique and dynamic professional.   My clients benefit from my career-long experience as a creative problem solver, skilled negotiator and client advocate.  My business fundamentals are these: my client is my partner, so its essential to create a great relationship.  I actively listen to learn my client's wants and needs, educate my clients about the market, then design and implement a winning strategy. I can extend to my selling clients the rewards of my design background, as I know how to stage and market a home to showcase its best and most advantageous attributes.  Buyers benefit from my love of researching neighborhoods and properties, and using a well trained eye for deciphering potential, and finding their most ideal home.

I am a native New Yorker, a University of Vermont undergrad, followed by a degree in Interior Design from New York School of Interior Design in NYC.  I have loved all twelve years of living in Alexandria, and I am the most proud parent of two fantastic children.

“Amy made a great impression on us with the previous sale of our primary residence. Her knowledge of the process and the local market were critical to us in making the best possible sale. A pleasure to work with. Amy's assistance with finding contractors to assist with the remodeling of the home before sale was outstanding. As previously mentioned, I have experience with contract management and Amy's assistance made this a very efficient process. Effective sales campaign. The portion I saw was online and was very well presented. Effective marketing and presentation of the property led t sale within 48 hours of open house.”

Frank Alexandria (Buyer)
“Amy Folmsbee is one of the most enthusiastic Realtors I have ever known. She was great a communicating with me every step of the way and responsive immediately to me when I had a question. Her observations were intelligent and pertinent to my situation. She understood my needs and redirected me when necessary. Amy knows the area very well. In addition, we always had fun looking at the various properties. Her design background was an added plus and helped when we would consider changes that I wanted to make to a perspective property. Her referral of competent contractors was a blessing! I would highly recommend Amy for any type of property investment in all price categories. She is fantastic and C-21 is lucky to have her!
