Client Testimonials

During a recent visit to the Alexandria area we decided to give serious consideration to finding a new home and moving to this lovely town. Several calls to realty companies produced no connections-not even one returned phone call! Long and Foster in Old Town connected us to Betsy, which was truly a godsend! Betsy's genuine and positive manner and knowledge of the area helped focus and direct our efforts to find a suitable home. Within one day we found a home in a great location within our price range.

Betsy is the perfect realtor, she has good intuition and advises wisely. Her professionalism is combined with a genuinely nice personality which makes you feel right at home!

There is no pressure, and she is attentive to details when the deal is in process. We had confidence she represented us fairly and honestly and that she is a trustworthy advocate.

It was a pleasure beyond our expectations to have worked with her in our search for a new home.

*When my wife and I began exploring a local move, we had the incredibly good fortune of encountering Betsy at an open house. Her warm, thoughtful demeanor immediately put us at ease, and after just a few minutes of conversation, we knew we wanted to work with her to sell our home and find the perfect new one. We never had reason to regret that decision, as Betsy helped us get our house ready to sell while simultaneously using her regional expertise to show us incredible new home options. As hard as it might seem to believe, Betsy managed to sell our house within 72 hours of listing and orchestrated the purchase of our new home within the same week. We still can't quite believe it all happened so smoothly, and Betsy made it all happen!


My wife and I were lucky enough to meet Betsy at an open house being held in the home we ultimately purchased. From the moment we met her, she exuded a genuine, caring, and professional demeanor and made it clear that she was willing to bend over backwards to help us get into our new home. As we went through the decision process of whether we were going to make an offer, Betsy showed the exact right amount of attention. She was not pushy in any way, but she followed up with us periodically to give us updates on the status of the house, as we requested. Once we decided to make an offer, she made every effort to make the process of closing as smooth as possible. Throughout the process, Betsy always made herself available to answer questions and make things happen for us, even when she was on vacation in Italy! I can't say enough about her work ethic, know-how, flexibility, and professionalism. On top of that, she has tons of charisma and an excellent personality. We would recommend her 10/10 for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Alexandria area. Thanks, Betsy!

Betsy is an amazing Realtor and has a solid knowledge and feel for the Alexandria area. She is so easy to work with and listens to your perspective. She will give her perspective on decisions based on her experience to help guide the client along the way. She is extremely helpful in obtaining required services and you will not be disappointed in contracting her as your agent. I think the world of Betsy. I was truly blessed to have her as my realtor to get me through the difficult process. By the way, she is also an amazing artist.

Betsy helped us find the perfect home in an area where we always wanted to live. Her patience and knowledge of the area were great assets to us – and she performed a thorough search of all the available places within our designated price range. We spent a good amount of time together viewing a nice selection of places, and her observations and suggestions proved to be very helpful when it was time to make our final decision. Betsy made the whole process painless (and even enjoyable) for us – and we’re very happy in our new home. We were very pleased with her professional service and real estate expertise, and we highly recommend her.

My husband and I just recently located to Alexandria, Virginia. I would like to thank Betsy Grady-Carey. Because of Betsy's knowledge about the Alexandria area my husband and I were able to find the perfect home. Betsy listened to our needs and requests and was able to work quickly with us in doing this. Her professionalism and attention to detail was above and beyond what you would expect. Once we found our home to rent Betsy followed thru in a trusting manor to get our lease approved and signed. Chris and I are so thankful for meeting Betsy. She has told us where to go for entertainment, where to eat, and where to shop. Betsy is a "class act" for Long & Foster. If we decide to purchase a home in the Alexandria area Betsy would be the realtor we would call for any real estate needs.

We had the pleasure to work with Betsy on the recent purchase of our townhome in Old Town! We first met Betsy at an open house for the property and were immediately impressed with her warmth and professionalism. So when it came to the home purchase, we of course went with Betsy. She made every step of the process, from offer to closing, smooth and efficient. Although buying a home can inherently be a daunting process, Betsy's expertise and regular communication helped us have a wonderful experience - she made the realtor-client relationship a true and trusted partnership.
