About Me

“Michele Symcak gets me! After 11 moves during two decades of military service, I finally found someone who truly understood my family’s needs and concerns, and someone whom I could trust to our interests first. Someone who listened to us. Michele was an advisor we could really count on!” --- Colonel P., US Army (Retired)

Words to live by. And words to live up to! It’s why I enjoy what I do so much. As someone who grew up in a close family of Italian descent where character and work ethic mattered most, I very much believe that my clients deserve straight talk (tempered by compassion), unparalleled service, and an incredibly positive real estate experience. My personal philosophy is that it begins with a solid bond of mutual trust and clear communication between client and agent. I recognize that every buyer or seller has unique needs, and my job is to address your needs and be at your side every step of the way during what is a time of heightened stress for you and your family.

Clients, both friends and strangers alike, have chosen to work with me because of my track record of success over 17 years as a real estate profession that is founded on an ethical approach to business and a level of demonstrated expertise that many believe differentiates my service from their past experiences.

A senior manager in our brokerage recently asked me what I attribute my success to. My answer is easy:

“I love what I do, and my goal is to ensure that my clients are so happy with me at the end of what is obviously a complex process that they refer me to their friends and family!”

Erik (Seller)
“Michele is very helpful, knowledgeable & excellent. I will go for her again and again and again.”
Rahmatu Adams (Buyer)
“Michele is the best agent we could ever ask for, she is extremely patient and helpful. She is highly professional and very knowledgeable. She anticipated most of our needs and was always quick to address any concerns we had. I will recommend Michele to anyone buying a home especially when dealing with a difficult Seller's agent, she will fight for your interests. ”
Jacob, McLean (Buyer)
“Michele made the whole process so smooth. We expected a lot of frustration, disappointment and anxiety but she made it all so simple! She brought us to houses that not only matched what we wanted, but neighborhoods that she knew we'd enjoy and the neighborhood we ended up in is beyond perfect! She really gets to know the clients and matches the house to them!”
Jackie & Jon Kilbourn (Buyer)
“Michele knows the area well and was able to explain the contract for my purchase thoroughly.”
Alyssa, Alexandria (Buyer)
“I was referred to Michele by a friend who had used her services to sell his condo. She helped me to painlessly sell my condo, then patiently guided me through a search that lasted nearly one year for the perfect home. Michele was knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind, and responsive during the entire process. She is direct -- she doesn't merely tell me what I want to hear. In fact, Michele helped prevent me from making a decision that I truly would have regretted. I now live in my very first single-family home, and I couldn't be happier with my experience with her and with my new home.”
Chris, Alexandria (Buyer)
“I met Michele 8 years ago when I was searching for a new home in the Ballston Metro area (Arlington, County, VA). She was referred to me by a work colleague who enjoyed working with Michele years before. We instantly connected. I appreciated her friendly, down-to-earth demeanor, while at the same time, her ability to demonstrate high-quality professionalism and a willingness to "go the extra mile" to get me into a new home. When it came time to sell that home 8 years later (due to a retirement-related relocation), I thought no further than hiring Michele to be my agent. She compiled a set of comps that supported a much higher sale value than I was expecting, and we had 22 viewings and three offers in three days! Michele contacted each of the buyers agents to discuss terms, and worked with me to select the strongest offer. It was an incredibly busy couple of weeks and Michele never left us hanging, not even for a moment. I'm very thankful for her service, and will always consider her more of a friend than a real estate agent. ”
Rob Campellone, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Michele was wonderful to work with, again. Buying or selling, she's a great agent for this area. Her sales plan, knowledge of the market, and experience ensured the house sold quickly and for top dollar.”
Landon C., Alexandria (Seller)
“My husband and I first worked with Michele when we were buying our first home in 2012. She expertly guided us through the process and calmed our anxieties that all first-time home buyers have. She found a condo that we bought and LOVED- one that she brought to our attention. When we went to buy a single-family home a few years later as our family grew, we knew immediately that we wanted Michele to be our agent again. She assisted us in purchasing our forever home and handled the unexpected complexities involved in closing on that house flawlessly. Then in 2018, we wanted to sell our first home (which we had been renting out) and went right back to Michele without hesitation. We knew she would do the best job and help us get it in shape so we could get the price we wanted. She got us $5,000 over our asking price in six days on the market! She also went to bat for us when we had issues with some of the contracted work, which we appreciated greatly: we simply told her what the problem was and she worked with the contractor to have it corrected without asking anything else of us. Michele is kind, hard-working, honest, patient, and very knowledgeable. It’s been a privilege to work with her regarding our real estate transactions. ”
Alisha Holdcroft, Lovettsville (Seller)
“Michele did an excellent job of being attentive, hardworking, professional, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the area. It was a pleasure working with her, especially being long distance.”
Carrie Lehmann (Seller)
“We cannot begin to say enough good things about Mrs. Symcak. Michele went above and beyond ordinary realtor duties and responsibilities. In addition to be a qualified, experienced, and professional realtor her outstanding character also deserves recognition. Living out of state prior, during, and after the sale could have been a real headache for us (as the sellers) but Michele made it seem easy. She was always available to take our calls and coordinate things on our behalf which was often on account of our geographical separation from the property. She offered sound advice and evidence based recommendations. Her attitude was superb every time we conversed with her and she was so pleasant to talk to. Michele has a wonderful balance in being both hopeful and encouraging while also being practical and candid. Michele developed a solid sales plan around our desires and executed it efficiently. We would highly recommend Michele Symcak as a realtor to anyone and we could only wish more realtors took the same amount of pride in their work as she does.”
The Shields Family, Tazewell, TN (Seller)
“I've worked with Michele on numerous transactions and she is very easy to work with... quick to respond and address issues/questions that arise. In this instance, she identified various home attributes that would affect our children; alerted seller agent when the agent took actions that would cause problems with VA appraiser; and went above and beyond (e.g. painting) to make up for seller's agent oversights. ”
Dave (Buyer)
“Michele Symcak is a long-time real estate agent who made our searching and home buying process a breeze. She talked and walked us through every step of the process and, as first time home buyers, that was BEYOND helpful! It really made the difference for us. She knows the business and the area, which is exactly what we needed. She's professional, friendly, patient, and honest, and I cannot say enough good things about her outstanding level of service. She is fantastic!”
Kelly B., Arlington (Buyer)
“During the last 11 years I've bought 3 houses in Arlington, and I wouldn't buy a house without Michele Symcak as my broker. Her experience, in-depth knowledge of the market and pragmatic common sense make her invaluable to me. Michele consistently hit the highest levels of professionalism, expertise and patience. One quality not captured by the list of characteristics is Michele's sense of humor, which over the years has helped me avoid discouragement in difficult market conditions. Thanks to Michele, the contract process went smoothly, and her knowledge of the market helped us reach a fair purchase price in short order. Since I was traveling during contract negotiations, I really appreciated Michele's willingness to get on calls or work odd hours to accommodate my schedule. As I said before, I wouldn't consider buying or selling a home in Arlington without Michele Symcak as my broker. She consistently delivers the highest level of professional services and is a great person on top of everything.”
David Buckley, Arlington (Buyer)
“I am 100% satisfied with her work. I wish all agents and companies were as detail oriented as her. ”
Summer M., Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“Michele Symcak has been our go-to realtor for the past 4 years and has help us buy and sell two properties. Her customer service, patience, integrity, and knowledge of the Arlington area are all reasons why we highly recommend her to all of friends and family. ”
Ian Penfield, Arlington (Seller)
“Michele is professional, welcoming, and hassle-free. She takes a personal interest in the experience, as well as the bottom line. She made the home search fun, and the process of selling of our home manageable! She is wonderfully balanced - straightforward, knowledgeable, and respectful, but also low key and personable. She anticipates needs and is very flexible. She took multiple late phone calls and early texts. We met Michele at a local open house in 2013. She helped us buy a home and has kept in touch over the years. She has shown us countless homes (even when we weren't seriously looking) and has been an invaluable resource as buyers, sellers, and as homeowners as well. ”
Kelly Penfield, Arlington (Buyer)
“Michele was always in constant communication with me, and was always accessible (very important to me). She made this experience wonderful, her honesty and commitment towards the clients she serves is truly amazing!! She has a special place in her heart for veterans and is a rare gem. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the NCR! ”
Carmen, Springfield. (Buyer)
“I was referred to Michele in 2010 and she was my broker when I bought my condo. I've referred her to several friends and she was amazing both in my experience and theirs, so when I was ready to sell my condo Michele was a no-brainer. She's still amazing!”
Amanda, Arlington (Seller)
“Michele Symcak demonstrated an ability to be personable and professional throughout the entire process of selling my home.”
Susan Lewis, Arlington, Virginia (Seller)
“Michele Symcak takes the time to get to know what you're actually looking for in a home, not just showing up to look at homes. She has extensive knowledge of market conditions and the diverse communities across Northern Virginia. She was attentive, responsive, and knowledgable about all the aspects involved in my home purchase and has continued to follow up, even after closing. Could not have asked for a better realtor!”
I. Campbell, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“Michelle was an absolute pleasure to work with. It was a smooth purchase with no headaches.”
Jeffrey Collins Haymarket VA (Buyer)
