We have worked with Bic twice now, and both times we were very impressed. Bic helped us buy a condo 7 years ago, and she made it so easy for us as first-time home buyers. When we were ready to upgrade this year, we contacted Bic again. She took a look at our condo and made recommendations for simple upgrades we could do that were affordable but maximized our sale price. She also helped us stage our place, and it all worked. We were able to sell our place for $15k more than any other condo in our complex that sold in the past year. Our buyer was pretty difficult to work with and had some loan issues, but Bic made that whole process so much easier. She also helped us find a new house and settle with a week to spare before we had to move out of our condo. Her negotiating skills are top-notch, and I feel like we got a great deal on a great house. I loved that Bic was able to walk through all of the houses with us and point out things that would be issues (e.g., potential water damage) and things that were selling points (e.g., all new windows and a new roof). We couldn't be more thrilled with our new home, and we wouldn't be here today without Bic. Less ... More

We chose Bic after researching Realtor's in the area online, specifically because of her extensive number of reviews and satisfied buyers shown on her Zillow account. We contacted Bic through her website with a pre-approval letter from a credit union in hand. She responded in 15 minutes. Bic was able to schedule same day showings during the lunch and evening hours for many properties in Vienna, Falls Church, and Arlington. With the fast paced market in Arlington, getting to see the house the day it's listed is a must to be competitive. Bic never suggested properties that were outside of our budget, and always kept value in mind when considering prices. We identified houses we wanted to see using the MLS search that Bic set up, so we did not expect her to suggest houses for us to see. We submitted offers on four properties, each time reviewing and reassessing our offer to make it the as strong as possible; our winning offer was unexpectedly requested at 3pm on a Saturday, which she delivered by 6pm that evening. Bic recommended specific contingencies that would look favorable to a seller, but not unacceptably risky for the buyer. Bic also referred us to a mortgage officer that allowed us to commit to a 18 day close, which wasn't possible through the credit union. Once the contract was signed, she kept us on track to meet all contingency deadlines and made sure settlement was smooth. We got the house we wanted at a price that we knew was a great buy (while not falling prey to the house being listed way under market value). Less ... More

Thanks for taking the time to post your review! I really appreciate it especially since your story is a great one for discouraged buyers in this competitive market...after 4 good tries, you ended up with the best home for an incredibly good value. So glad you missed the first 3. ;) Congratulations again! It was fun working with you. Cheers!

As first-time home buyers, we had a million questions -- and kept going back and forth on whether or not we'd buy right away. Bic has the patience of a saint! She never rushed us and was very helpful without being pushy. When we were ready she was always available (even when she was out of the country on a family vacation!!), always explained everything very clearly and laid out potential scenarios for us to consider. Moreover, she made us feel like we were a priority -- very responsive. She and her team worked very hard for us and we'd recommend her to anyone who we know that's looking to buy in the area. Especially, first-time buyers! Less ... More

Bic and her team were always available, professional, and courteous throughout the process. Bic personally came to our house for our first meeting and advised on staging the house for showings. She provided contact info for contractors (floor and paint/handyman) with whom she had experience, and also provided help with the staging process. As we were moving to another state, Bic interviewed realtors in the area we were moving to. Bic or someone from her team were always available to answer any questions and provide advice. Definitely highly recommended! Less ... More

Selling your home can be a very emotional experience for some people. This was the case for my girlfriend. After experiencing how Bic supported my daughter and her family sell their first home and then helped them find a newer larger home in the perfect community for their growing family, I didn't hesitate to recommend Bic ! Then, only after five days that Bic and her team listed my girlfriend's home on the market, we had five escalating contract over our asking price. Bic is the ultimate professional that feels more like a friend that guides you through the process with no pressure. Her local knowledge of the market place is outstanding as she provides you lots of marketing insights on how to sell your home at the right price quickly. Bic is also a very impressive negotiator that is respected by her peers for her character and her integrity. We highly recommend Bic for anyone who is looking to buy or selling their home.

She knows the local market very well and has provided lots of insights on how to buy and sell quickly.

Bic helped my fiance and I buy our first house and was absolutely amazing when it came to the entire process. When my fiance and I met with Bic for the first time, we knew that she had every possible quality that you are looking for in a real estate agent. She was sharp, quick, and on top of her game with regards to market knowledge, responsiveness and the overall process. Being first time homeowners, we did our research ahead of time but found that Bic added a ton of value for us even after we did our homework. Her team was undoubtedly the most professional people we have ever worked with. She gave us piece of mind throughout the entire process from when we began to look at open houses with her team to signing on the dotted line for closing on our house. She is a great negotiator and was willing to talk through the entire process with us preparing us ahead of time. I have no qualms about recommending her to friends and family and will be using her in the future if we decide to ever move again. -Andy and Karen Less ... More

We worked with several agents before we found Bic due to the positive reviews on Zillow. We tested her out and she was very attentive to our specific requirements. We decided to work with her because her professionalism and "no nonsense" style. During the buying and selling process, she exerts great leadership in guiding us thorough out. She listened very well to what our needs and want. However, she was also very firm on her strategies especially in selling our condo. We had an offer after 3 days of listing. We consider that we were very lucky that we met Bic. However, the luck is opportunity meets the preparation, If you are reading our review and other many reviews at Zillow site now, we have to tell you that you are in the right place and picking the right agent.

We chose Bic after interviewing four realtors. We asked to interview her based on other positive reviews we had read online. We were very impressed with her professionalism. She really took care of everything and gave us good advice at each step of the transaction. We were unsure of the first offer and she provided good advice on how to proceed. We also had a minor issue at the property just before the closing and her advice on how to handle it worked perfectly. The buyer's agent mentioned to us at one point how much she enjoyed working with Bic (apparently, Bic patiently worked with her on certain forms or processes that the buyer's agent wasn't familiar with). We felt that we were in good hands with Bic and plan to use her in the next couple of months for another property. Less ... More

Working with Bic was a wonderful experience. As much as possible, she removed all stress from the process of buying a home, and made it a fun experience. We had previously worked with another realtor and were less than impressed, but Bic was a professional the entire time and represented a complete 180 from our prior experience. She's very knowledgeable about the home-buying process and about the NOVA market. We were both extremely impressed and happy with our experience and would easily recommend Bic to every person wanting to buy a house in the area. Less ... More

When on a trip to the west coast, my wife and I made an offer on the home of our dreams. To our surprise and pleasure, our offer was accepted. We had done nothing to prepare for the sale of our home in Virginia. We did a quick search and found Bic's website. It accurately described a realtor with the expertise and team to sell our house within the 60 days. From our first meeting, we were impressed with Bic's energy, professionalism, and knowledge of the market. She and her team were able to get our home on the market and make the sale within the 60 days required for us to close on our new home. She helped us through every step of the process and was there whenever we had questions. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
I am a small business owner with 15 employees who has bought both residential and commercial real estate in the past. I have high expectations for the professionals I do business with, yet working with Bic as my buyer's agent for a home in Northern Virginia, she managed to surpass them all. As you may ascertain from the gushing review below, she is the best real estate agent I have worked with yet, and I would recommend her without reservation. The first thing that impressed me about Bic was her base of local knowledge and experience. While she covers a wide swath of Northern Virginia, she was well versed in the specific neighborhoods where I was looking to buy. She was aware of some of the specific issues some of the homes had and a sense of perspective regarding what I was looking for versus the types of homes available. She also personally knew several of the seller's agents that were listing homes in these neighborhoods and was constantly keeping in touch with them to get more detailed information on the homes as well as an advance warning of homes about to be put on the market. Bic also was able to quickly determine what I was looking for so that she almost knew what I wanted better than I did myself. If a home did not feel right, we'd quickly move on. Even if I liked a home, she would draw upon her experience to challenge me on some of the negative aspects of it to ensure I had weighed the pros and cons. The second thing that became more and more clear over time is that Bic is in the real estate business for the "right" reasons. My situation, needs, and best interests were the frame of reference for which all our work together was conducted. It was easy to tell that she wasn't trying to "sell" me on anything to make a quick commission check or blow smoke up my backside. This impression was only strengthened about a week after we closed on the house she helped me purchase. I had a late night emergency at my old home (not the one she helped me buy) and did not know how to fix it. I knew only one person who might be able and willing to help. Bic picked up the phone after 10pm and marshaled her resources to help me until almost midnight. This was beyond my expectations but all in a day's work for Bic. Most importantly, Bic has the experience, temperament, instincts, and skills to manage the process and deliver results. As someone used to being in charge, it takes a lot for someone to earn my trust to the point where I'll willingly follow their lead. Every step of the way, she had a well-reasoned strategy as a starting point that she would discuss with me to refine together. While it was never in question that I would have the final say on that strategy, if I pushed back on one of her proposals, she would not immediately give in just to "keep me happy" as some other agents would, but instead would continue to refine her point based on what she believed to be my best interests. She knew when to move quickly, when to slow down, what to say, and how to say it during the search and negotiations process, and I believe her instincts were generally on point. I never felt alone in the process, and I never felt like I was the one doing all the work (as I had felt in prior transactions). She is organized and follows through effectively on everything that needs to be done (I would have completely forgotten about a credit owed to me if Bic had not double-checked and reminded me about it). In the past I'd dealt with too many real estate agents who simply "go through the motions" and collect a hefty commission check as a return on far too little work. Bic helped me find a home relatively quickly; yet for the first time working with an agent I feel satisfied that I got my money's worth. Less ... More

Bic was such a tremendous help with our house search. She's proactive, professional, knowledgeable, sharp, and is always on top of things. What I love about her most is that she takes the opportunity to really get to know her clients to help them find their dream home. My husband and I have completely different tastes, so her goal was to find the ideal home for us with the right amount of balance. Our search lasted for about 6 months. We began looking in the Spring, and soon realized how hot the market was during that time of year leading in to the Summer. Prices for homes were high and the competition was tough. We were frustrated to the point where we were ready to just settle for any house that was available, but of course that wasn't an option for Bic. She convinced us to remain patient and to continue looking as she did not want us to have any regrets in the long run. Our patience eventually paid off and we were able to find the perfect house (amazing location, great structure, within our budget, and just the right size for our growing family). We cannot thank Bic and her team enough for everything they have done for us! Less ... More

It was a truly wonderful experience to work with people with true professionalism. As soon as I started woking with Bic, all the large and smalll worries and troubles in the house selling process were handled by Bic and her team. She stood in my position, but she was also very reasonable to make a decision keeping abreast with market situation. Her response was almost instant and she brought solution to any issues from remodeling, cleaning, staging, showing, negotiation and settlement.

I found Bic on this site and after reading all the reviews, I decided to ask her to help selling my house. I'm glad I did. She was very professional, her commitment and dedication were excellent. She always kept me up-to-date through the entire process. From providing advice, staging the house, to appraisal and closing, she was on top of everything to make sure things ran smoothly. In the end, I sold the house at a great price and in a month. I was so impressed with her, I asked her to represent me in buying a new house too. Thanks for everything, Bic. Update 7/2014: I finally bought a new house with Bic's help. Again, Bic was wonderful to work with. I never felt any pressure from her to make any decision that i was not comfortable with. Having had to deal with a rather difficult seller, she went above and beyond to fight for my benefit. Thanks again, Bic Less ... More

While finding and purchasing our home, my wife and I found the word 'savvy' popping up in our conversations. As in, "Bic is soooooo savvy," which is something we said over and over again. You cannot find a better agent. She knows the business inside and out. She has an excellent understanding of home pricing. She knows the local market like the back of her hand. She even understands the psychology of buyers and sellers. And she uses all this savvy for her clients--always putting their interests first.

My wife and I were getting ready to move overseas on short notice with a 10 month old son and needed an agent we could trust to help us sell our condo, with little help from us after we left. Bic came highly recommended from a friend who had Bic as her agent when she sold her condo in our neighborhood a few years earlier. Needless to say, Bic did not disappoint! From staging and showing our home, to long distance phone calls and electronic signatures on documents...selling our home was just plain easy with Bic as our agent. Bic got us multiple bids and we had a ratified contract after only 10 days on market. Best of all, we sold our condo for more money than than we were expecting only a few short months before when met her the first time.

She was highly approachable during the whole process and has wonderful command on real estate information.

I found Bic on Zillow and chose her based on the positive user testimonials. I would HIGHLY recommend her. She is an expert in the Northern VA real estate market. She is extremely responsive, at all hours. Her feedback throughout the process of looking for a house was always very honest. If she didn't like a house, or something about it, she would tell me - she had my interests in mind throughout the process. I ended up putting an offer on two houses (I now live in the second one). She was a great negotiator throughout both processes, and helped me manage all the steps to stay on schedule. I ultimately decided not to go with the first house b/c of things that came up in the inspection, and Bic completely accepted my decision and never pressured me to reconsider or start looking for the next house. It was about 8 months before I found another house that I liked, and Bic jumped right back in to get my contract submitted and convince the sellers to take my offer (there were many offers). She was very helpful in the weeks leading to settlement, and again proved to be a great negotiator with the sellers on some things that came up in the inspection. I would 100% recommend using Bic for buying a new home -- she is great to work with, is very responsive and has a lot of experience. Less ... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. I'm grateful you found me on Zillow. It was fun working with you! Even though the first house was nice there were just too many issues uncovered during the inspection and I'm glad you waited for the perfect home to come along. It was definitely worth the wait! Congratulations again! :)

This is my first time ever writing any reviews online, but I really wanted to share our experience with Bic. She is an amazing agent! Even though we were living overseas, she helped us purchase our home in Great Falls and was very patient, knowledgeable, and diligent throughout the whole process. Even with the time zone differences, she would still be available for phone calls at 2am her time! Her response time and diligence has been amazing. I think when you look for an agent, you want someone that understands what you are searching for, knows how to operate in the market you are looking in, will get you the best price for it, and will protect you and your family's interests during closing and beyond. She has definitely done all of these, and works very hard in the process. We have seen how other agents in the area conduct their business with their clients, and a lot of times these other agents are more concerned about their own interests over their clients interest. The wonderful thing about Bic is she doesn't play these games that other agents do and has really looked out for us and has been transparent throughout the whole process. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Bic! Less ... More

We both bought and sold thru Bic and she came to us thru a friend?s recommendation. While we wish we were among those reviewers here whose houses sold in a day, got over asking, and/or went thru the contracting process seamlessly, we were not. There were small hiccups along the way (all out of Bic?s control) and anxieties were high at times for us. As such, we can say that we always knew Bic had our backs behind the scenes, using her vast knowledge, experience and relationships to get the job done for us. Furthermore, Bic went above and beyond to help us in ways she didn?t need to, whether it was helping us to secure contractors, micro-managing the staging process, or indulging excessive questions to help calm our nerves. What impressed us most was Bic?s commitment to get the job done for us, at the best price for us, and always in our best interest. While she is a straight-shooter and no-nonsense business woman, Bic is also a professional who cares personally about her clients. We cannot recommend Bic more highly. Less ... More

Bic was an amazing realtor. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process of assisting us with both buying and selling a home. On the buying side, she had great insight into the many areas we considered, while never pressuring us to buy quickly. We ended up buying new construction and Bic was extremely valuable throughout the process. She was able to negotiate several items in our favor and builders typically do not negotiate. She handled several issues for us and really represented our interests well throughout the entire building/closing process. On the selling side, Bic did an amazing job staging the house and helping to get our house ready to be sold. She coordinated the necessary contractors, who were all great and reasonably priced. To top it off, she had our house under contract in 2 days for over asking price. We couldn't have been happier and would absolutely recommend Bic as an agent. We knew she always had out interest in mind and it was nice to know we had someone like Bic on our side. Less ... More

I contacted Bic DeCaro through Zillow because of the previous reviews she had received. I didn't know her so I was taking a stab in the dark because I was trying to sell my home from overseas (Dubai); all transactions needed to be done over the internet. How do you trust someone to sell an important asset like a house, especially when you've never met them in person? Luckily, that stab in the dark was the best thing that could have happened to me. Bic was extremely responsive, timely, and honest about the condition of the house and the market. She contracted for all my repairs and improvements to get it listed. She also advised me (correctly) on the estimate of the house and was able to produce 4 buyers on the 2nd day the house was listed. The highest offer came in over her listing price! Bic negotiated the final price to my advantage so I cannot emphasize enough how much I would recommend this real estate agent to others. Less ... More

Bic was a great realtor for my husband and I as first-time home buyers. She was very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking at and had a lot of information about the market. My husband and I couldn't figure out where to get the size house we wanted in a great location for the right price. At our first meeting, Bic pointed us toward the perfect location and solved the dilemma! When we found the perfect house, Bic's knowledge about the area and resale value gave us confidence to put in a strong offer. She was essential to our offer getting accepted in a very competitive market. As soon as we told her we wanted to put in the offer, she started working on it and was in communication with the sellers' realtor throughout the day. With information from him, she made sure that our offer was very strong and would get accepted before the other offers that were being written could challenge us. With the popularity of the house and the area, it seems unlikely we would have been able to get our house without this "pre-negotiation." With Bic's help and reassurances, everything went smoothly through the home inspection to final walk-through to closing and we are so incredibly happy with our new home! We highly recommend Bic and will work with her in the future when it's time to be first-time home sellers! Less ... More

Bic was tireless in her efforts to get us the best deal out there. She offered spot-on insights on the market, and in this current environment of low inventory and high demand her responsiveness was key to us getting our contract accepted. Beyond her professionalism and expertise, we found her to be just a great person to collaborate with and be around. For our next real estate investment, or when it comes time to sell our home or other properties, we will most certainly call Bic!

We found Bic through a trusted friend and could not be more grateful! She was exceptional the whole way through - keeping us calm and patient, never discouraged by the market or our budget, incredibly insightful about the pros and cons of every property we looked at. When we found our home she was even better - working late into the night on a weekend, following up at every turn, patiently answering questions and careful not to let us over spend. She negotiated in our best interest while managing to be totally respectful of the sellers' as well. She had a person to recommend for any repair once we closed on the property and she's funny to boot. We would definitely recommend her and if/when the time comes to buy another home, we'll contact her first. Less ... More

Having relocated from the Midwest fairly recently, I needed a realtor with a strong knowledge of the housing market in Northern Virginia. Bic clearly knows the territory and showed me a variety of homes in Alexandria within my budget and meeting my list of "must haves". As we visited homes she would point out structural strengths as well as deficiencies that I could have easily overlooked. Bic also was mindful of my anticipated work commute to and from DC, something that would be difficult for me to asses not having lived in this area before. She readily accommodated my requests to see homes regardless if it was short notice or late evening, in order to see newly listed homes as soon as possible. Bic responded to my to phone calls, texts, and emails in a timely manner and processed all paperwork efficiently. Bic is professional, kind and genuinely likable, which made the home buying process a very pleasant one. She worked diligently on my behalf and as I result I purchased a home that I will enjoy for many years to come. Less ... More

First met Bic when she was referred to me from a friend that told me "there is only one person to sell your house and that is Bic!" Bic was always extremely prepared, professional, and went out her way to help. Her communication skills are exceptional. There is no way to adequately compare Bic to other realtors as she provides a service that I wasn't aware existed. As every house typically requires various repairs, painting..etc, Bic has her group of excellent contractors that she manages the whole way through the process. Prior to meeting Bic, I had already started to interview multiple contractors and spent a fair amount of time going through bids. As soon as Bic took over, she was able to get the work done for thousands of dollars less than the lowest bid that I had received. I would come home from a busy day of work and Bic was already reviewing the work that was done. Amazingly Bic also stages the house herself and there is no additional charge to rent furniture and supplies (clearly very different from what a number of realtors who I had originally interviewed mentioned would be required). Bic also has a great knowledge base of how to use technology in the process of representing her clients. She is an extremely honest and hardworking realtor and after using her would never consider using anyone else. She makes the process as positive and easy as possible. Definitely give Bic a call. I'm sure that she will equally impress. Less ... More

Bic was fantastic to work with and we couldn't have done it without her! After several months of searching, we finally found the house we wanted to buy but there was one little problem - it wasn't for sale (yet)! That didn't deter Bic, she masterfully worked with the potential sellers and made the perfect deal happen! Once we had agreed on the purchase of our amazing new house, we had another little problem - we had to sell the one we already owned. Of course, this was no problem for Bic as she expertly helped us prepare our house and quickly got us on the market - and then sold our house in 2 weeks! She became our trusted advisor as she guided us through the buying, selling and closing processes and neither deal would have happened without her - she has our strongest recommendation! Less ...

Bic is absolutely a dream come true!!! She was with is when we first started looking for a new home 3 years ago, and when we decided to wait, she was patient, understanding and then ready to go when we were. Her ability to understand what we wanted in a house was uncanny, and her willingness to work around our hectic schedules was appreciated more than she knows! When we found the house we wanted she was honest and upfront with us about how the builder works and helped us manage our expectations., But even while we were looking elsewhere when our offer was rejected, she continued to work with the builder to come to agreeable terms. Never giving up on our dream and fighting to the end to see it through. Once we found our house she was with us every step of the way. She even came out with me to pick out the options, which I knew was not a requirement of her service, but just another example of how she went above and beyond. She came with us to closing and even after when we had questions she was there to help us. She assisted us in navigating the confusing paperwork of our home mortgage and would be available to our loan officer to answer questions. Bic is not just a realtor, she has become a friend and in many ways an angel who watched over us and helped us every step of the way. There is no way we would have been able to go through this process without someone as honest, dedicated, unwavering, and respected. We have found our realtor for life!!! Less ... More

I was very lucky to come across Bic DeCaro. It was my first property purchase so everything was very new to me but from the very beginning Bic has been extremely helpful. Always one step ahead and so patient to answer every question I had. Throughout the process, she has given me valuable advises and guidance. She was always full of energy, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable about the business as well as locations, house repairs, and much more. She would make herself available even on the weekends to show properties or to explain a contract, review the home inspection report, guide us through the negotiation process, and much more. She knows a lot of people in the business and her recommendations for contractors, handymen, painters, etc. have been extremely helpful. She is incredible.

Bic handled our relocation. I must have looked at 40 houses, but she never was irritated about showing me anything I wanted to see. Working with the seller became extremely contentious. Yet through it all, she never lost her temper or became upset. She solved all kinds of problems, including dealing with the seller, who decided at the very last minute, that he wasn't sure he wanted to sell to us. She is extremely knowledgeable, is an outstanding negotiator, and always looked out for our best interest.

Working with Bic has been an outstanding experience in every way. As first time home buyers, we couldn't have been luckier to find her. We wanted to look at a home on a weeknight at the last minute and she met us there (no reason to know we were serious buyers). Her proactiveness and professionalism continued from there (even though we weren't high rollers). Since my husband and I both work full time and have very inflexible schedules, Bic worked with our schedules in every way possible. She responded kindly and promptly to our hundreds of questions, took our search very seriously, and was very talented in helping package an attractive, competitive, and smart offer, especially in a highly desirable market, e.g., near the Orange Line Metro. She is also extremely knowledgeable about recommending contractors/movers to use - a walking Angie's List! Thanks to Bic's proactive and kind professionalism, we were able to close our first home right on schedule, without a hitch, I would highly recommend her to all future buyers and would definitely work with her again!

I am not sure what I could say about Bic that would do her justice; she is AMAZING! We first met Bic while she was hosting an open house. The house was adorable, but not in the area we were interested in (we later learned that the house was so cute because Bic had staged it). At the time we met Bic, we had already worked with a different realtor for the rental we were in. Though we were satisfied with their service, it took only a brief conversation with Bic at the open house to realize we wanted her to represent us; she was warm, open, genuine, and clearly knowledgeable about the area---she's lived here her whole life. Fortunately, when it was time to start looking, Bic remembered our family and was very happy to help us, even though we were not committed to buying at that time. Our story is a long and boring one---very typical for the area, so I will spare the details. Suffice to say that we went through three offers and three heartbreaks before we were ready to quit. In one case, we thought we had the deal in hand, only to have it snatched away at the last second. Bic was very patient and supportive through it all, despite the fact that we were heavily underbidding many of the homes; she never rushed us or discouraged us from putting in a lower bid that had only a small chance of being accepted. In the end, we found a home in the location we wanted and at a very good price for the area. The house needs some work, but Bic has helped us by providing access to the contractors that she uses for her investment properties. However, she never pressured us to use "her people." In fact, she encouraged us to shop around as much as we needed to feel comfortable. She is even helping us with decorating ideas; her tastes are impeccable---look at one of her staged homes to see what I am talking about. She also encouraged us to call her in the future when we plan more renovations so that she can advise us on how it will affect the house's appeal when we eventually plan to sell. No doubt, when that time comes, Bic will be our agent again. I will never buy or sell a home in this area with out Bic's help. If you are looking for someone that goes beyond an 'agent' title, Bic is truly A GEM!!! Less ... More

Our experience with Bic in purchasing a home is by the far the best experience that one could ever imagine. Being a newly wed, and a young couple my husband and I had no idea what we were getting into, nor did we have any idea as to what we wanted in a home. I know that I wanted the "wow factor" and my husband had to have a 2 car garage. Instantly within our first meeting with Bic she put both of our concerns at ease and assured us that we will find exactly what we wanted/needed. Bic definitely educated us on the multiple aspects of home buying; what we should look for, what may be a concern in the future and basically painted a picture to look into the future and not just in the moment of excitement in home buying. With our 14 hour shifts at work it is very hard to communicate with the outside world; Bic made it extremely easy to update us via email, text, and when necessary via phone. She is very prompt in replying to any emails, questions, or concerns at anytime of the day and takes her job seriously and her passion for her work is prominent. Several times she's made adjustments to her schedule to either take us to another viewing of the home or to work around our hectic schedule. Overall, we have nothing but respect for Bic and her dedication to her clients fulfillment and needs. She is proactive, distinguished in negotiating, and willfully has the foremost intentions and interests for her clients. We hope to work with her in the future to come. Thank you so much! Less ...

My wife and I worked with Bic both in selling our home and in buying a new one after a year?s long process of looking. When selling our home Bic provided excellent advice on the "right" price to list and listened to us as we worked through what can be an emotional exercise, selling a home you love and have put a lot of work into. She was meticulous in her attention to detail as we prepared to show our house, and provided great advice on what we should and should not do. Bic does not leave anything to chance. She provided good advice on which contract to select and walked us through all the steps leading up to and through closing. When we purchased our home Bic stuck with us through an endless looking process, and was patient as my wife and I discussed our different requirements in a new home. Again her attention to detail, knowledge of the local market and just overall willingness to work, add value to the process and just get stuff done made her indispensable. The best thing about Bic is that she looks out for you and realizes that the best and right way to do business is to take care of her clients, not just to get to closing and collect a check, like so many others in her profession.

Bic knows her business inside and out. Expert level. Passionate. Sharp. Practical. When my wife and I were shopping for homes (first time buying), she suggested a property that we wouldn't have considered on our own. We love it! That's the mark of a true professional. Provide something beyond the expectation, a value added. Others just do what they're asked. To assume the consumer knows what they need to know and simply follow what they seem to want ? without challenging them as well ? is to provide a less than spectacular service.

It seemed as though she knew exactly what we were looking for and didn't waste anyones time showing us properties that she knew likely wouldn't be the right fit. We will definitely be using Bic again when we are ready to buy/sell in the future.

Bic was able to pinpoint exactly what we needed to do to prepare our house and price it to be sold quickly. We had a contract on it within a week. Purchasing our new home was equally successful. Bic negotiated a lower price than the sellers were asking and got the sellers to cover our closing costs. She was constantly available, level-headed and quick to anticipate any possible pitfalls. She is professional, personal and explained every step of the process clearly.

Bic sold our home in less than 24 hours in a really challenging market. She was amazing to work with throughout the entire processes (as a buyer and a seller). Bic's people skills, and ability to put her clients at ease are second to none, and she truly a pleasure to work with. She is upbeat and optimistic, while at the same time remaining honest and demanding the best. My biggest regret in moving out of the DC area is losing the ability to work with Bic to buy our next home.

Bic did a wonderful job for my wife and I. We were newly married and Bic was patient and went above and beyond her duties as our agent. She was a tiger during negotiations and a sweet heart as a friend. I would highly recommend Bic to anyone looking for an agent!

Bic is an incredible real estate professional and a five star rating is too low for this highly qualified agent. During our home search, she was extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and always put our needs at the very forefront. Bic was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. When working with Bic, you can feel at ease that you have someone who has your best interests at heart.

The effort, energy and commitment that Bic provided me went far beyond my expectations. She hired a contractor for me and he did an amazing job and gave me an even more amazing price for all the work he did. I love the way she staged the unit, I felt like it looked better after she staged it and wanted to keep it for myself. She handled everything efficiently and professionally, which was a great relief since I live in NY. Her advice and guidance were always on target, she told me to invest a mere $1800 to spruce up the unit and I would get that back in the sale price. I got the $1,800 back and sold the unit for more than I originally thought I could. I was in contract within 1 week of listing with a respectable and qualified buyer and closed one month later! Her attention to all the details, responding to phone calls and keeping me abreast of everything that was happening certainly took a lot of the pressure off me. I have consistently found her to be pleasant, sincere and honest in all of our dealings. It is because of these fine qualities, that I am confident that she will continue to be a successful agent. I would highly recommend her to any future clients. I am in the process of selling my co-op in Manhattan and have not been able to find an agent like Bic. She has raised the bar for my standards and I've been in search for someone like her. Less ... More

Bic is extremely strategic and excels in the areas of client needs, wants, satisfaction and collaboration. She is one of the most creative and resourceful agents I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Any transaction you give Bic you can rest assure that she will exceed all your expectations. She is organized, detail orientated and brings enthusiasm to every transaction.

We have bought and sold homes with Bic. I can't say enough about her professionalism, her high energy and her over all knowledge of the buying and selling process. Bic will spare nothing to help you sell your home or find that right home for you and your family. We have referred her to our friends and family which has netted numerous real estate transactions. You will be overly satisfied with your experience when you chose Bic as your realtor!

Bic has sold three homes for us. Each time she was able to sell our home for greater than the market average for comparable homes. She is a very responsive, highly effective and easy to work with agent. I highly recommend her and will contact her when we are ready to sell our current home.
