Joan Stansfield helped tremendously, both in the selling of our town home and in the purchase of our new single-family home. We had a lot of complicated factors, including a tight budget that made finding a home in our desired neighborhood challenging, and the need to sell our town home in a timely way (in a tough economy). Joan helped us navigate all these processes with expertise and skill. She was patient and pressure free while we were on our home search, and was very savvy about recommending properties we wouldn’t have thought of ourselves. Joan’s professionalism is top-notch, but what really makes her special is her personality. She’s the perfect combination of relaxed, easy going accessibility that makes the stressful process of buying and selling a home so much more tolerable. She takes care of the small details that can make a difference between making the sale or not.”

Joan is the best. She not only sold our home quickly, she also worked her magic on the owner of the condominium we wanted and convinced him to sell it. Throughout the selling and buying processes, Joan gave us solid advice and counsel. She will always be our go-to agent.”

In helping me search for my home in Arlington, Virginia, Joan was knowledgeable and well-connected to the community. She gave me valuable background on the strategic economic developments and real estate trends in the greater Washington area, with plenty of research to back them up. In negotiations, Joan was intrepid, tenacious, and compelling in her use of data and comparable sales. Joan left no detail of the buy/sell agreement to chance and followed up tirelessly and thoroughly until every clause in the contract was fulfilled. She also introduced me to a mortgage broker and referred me to top-notch tradesmen to help with my renovation projects. Joan is smart and uses technology to full advantage.
Joan’s level of one-stop client service was unparalleled. When I was considering the construction of a new home, Joan attended all the meetings with the general contractor and toured his work sites with me. She left no stone unturned during home inspections and followed through with the professional service providers on my behalf. Joan accompanied me to closing to emphasize her support from beginning to end. Joan takes great pains when asked to stage listings, making sure that sellers’ homes are represented in their best light. If you prefer to rent, Joan gives you the same personal attention in helping you find you the right apartment, condo, townhouse, or home. Hard work is her middle name.
In all my real estate dealings, I’ve never found a more relational realtor. . . patient, personable, and positive. Joan’s goal is for sellers to get the highest prices as quickly as possible, and for buyers to find the right homes on competitive terms. But I never felt pushed or rushed just so Joan could earn a commission. She is generous and thoughtful, tangibly and continually demonstrating her appreciation for her clients. Joan is also genuine, dealing effectively with clients of all incomes, ethnicities, and educational backgrounds. She is flexible and versatile, yet trustworthy and dependable. Joan is absolutely driven by customer satisfaction.
The proof is in the pudding. Joan’s repeats and referrals have increased so much that she now is building a team to increase her level of client care. Give Joan Stansfield a call if you want solutions—she’s the only realtor you’ll ever need.”

‘Lurch’ - Ashburn, VA
I moved to the DMV area about half a year ago and I feel extremely blessed to have been helped by Joan's team (Dana specifically) to find a home as soon as I landed. Dana had amazing attention to detail and had been responsive around the clock. She worked tirelessly with me and hadn't shown any impatience at any point in time. Also, I'm particularly appreciative that Dana was ready to walk away from the deal with me whenever it no longer seemed worthwhile. This was my third house purchase and Joan/Dana has been the best I've come across so far. I would not hesitate to work with them again."
Gavin W. - Vienna VA
When it came to buying, we took Dana with us on a wild goose chase through different cities and areas to find the perfect home. Not only did she do it with a smile but when we finally found it, she made sure we had the best offer to get the house. Even when it is all over, they make sure to reach out to you with special gifts and ask how things are going. We couldn't be more thankful we went with Stansfield Signature in selling and buying.
Dana was our agent, helping us search for the right property to rent for our growing family -- and she blew us a away with top-notch service, and was persistent in arranging visits, negotiating with the property management company, and making sure that all the necessary paperwork was in order for a smooth transition into the home.
It's nice to be able to feel like you have someone on your side who has been around, will fight for your interests, and won't put up with any baloney or unnecessary delay in providing information, or returning calls/emails, etc.
Dana earned our trust, and absolutely went the extra mile to make sure that the home was ready for us to move into when the day came. We highly recommend her, personally, and her company at large -- they do seem to 'get it' when it comes to customer service. You would be hard pressed to find a better advocate for you as a renter, or as a seller.

Dana Jackins helped us find a great rental that met our needs. We moved here from Alabama so we really depended on her knowledge of the area. Dana went above and beyond in helping us with getting all the paperwork done long distance, and answering my numerous questions. Her patience and professionalism definitely helped to make a stressful situation much easier to navigate!
