–Aaron and Stacie Moats


“I am writing to let you know how pleased we were with Bonnie Rivkin’s expertise during our recent home selling and buying experience.  We were initially referred to Bonnie through USAA Movers Advantage Program.  They gave us a couple of names, but I could tell immediately that Bonnie was a good fit for us and I recognized her from her signs and ads in the Alexandria community.”

When Bonnie first came to meet me in April, our house was a typical kid-filled mess in need of preparation for selling.  We weren’t ready to list at that time, but she gave me good advice and contractor referrals.  Months later, she helped us stage the home and negotiate the purchase of our new home and take care of countless details.  She proved to be a true professional and advocate for our best interests.  (We had some very interesting last minute blunders!)  Even months after our move she has checked in to see how we are doing and how are home warranty has served us.”

“I am happy to be a reference for Bonnie.  After speaking with acquaintances who have had less favorable experiences with their real estate agents, my husband and I are even more appreciative of Bonnie’s talents.”

-Patti Walsh

— Carla Riner

“Awesome knowledge of local area, good research and flexible scheduling.  Worked hard to get us into properties.  We always felt she wanted the best possible outcome for us.”

“Thanks for the great experience, we love our new home.”

“We put a contract on 5 acres in Lorton.  By the time Bonnie and our settlement attorney were done we had 11 acres for no additional money.  Bonnie worked above and beyond on this particular property and there were a lot of issues that came up and had to be worked out and talked through.  She handled every aspect and kept us in the loop the entire time.  We will use Bonnie for our real estate needs again.  Trust is a huge issue with us and we trust Bonnie and very much appreciate her work ethic.”

–James and Valerie Armstrong


I loved, loved, loved working with Bonnie.  She never, ever made me feel as if I was a nuisance – which I know I was, as I’m a Technophobe!  She just called me in and got everything going so that I could choose and ultimately find a great house.  She is fun and professional and made sure I saw everything that was available and then some!   This was our 26th move and working with Bonnie was our easiest and smoothest transaction!
