Spoiled Clients - Testimonials

We cannot say enough positive statements about Joan Stansfield and the entire Stansfield Signature team. Joan and her team are extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market knowing what it takes to sell your home. They approach each client’s home individually. The team will tour your house first and then make recommendations for what possibly is needed to sell in your particular market.

We discovered our house was almost ready to be placed on the market with just some painting, staging and removal of personal items. Whatever is recommended, do it!!! The entire Stansfield team knows what it takes to get you the best offer in the shortest amount of time. And should there be some “bumps” along the way (always seems to be some in real estate), Joan will get you seamlessly through them.

We did exactly what was suggested and once on the market had our house under contract within 3 days after multiple offers.  We could not be happier."
Judy K. - Vienna, VA

Joan and her team were a pleasure to work with.  Her experience and knowledge was evident throughout every step of the home buying process. Joan was so generous with her time and was fun to work with!  We not only have a new real estate agent, we have a new friend!"
James T. - Frederick, MD

My wife and I highly recommend Joan!  We had a great experience with her and her team. She got more for the house than it was worth - to be honest. We went into the market expecting a price about 20% lower than she was able to achieve, so we were delighted.

Joan clearly knew what she was doing and knew the market. She helped arrange things for us to get the house in shape and staged and it looked fantastic.  My only complaint was that after 3 days on the market she only sent us 9 offers; she didn't want to bother us with the rest that offered only our asking price...

I'd gladly do business with her again!"
Peter S.- Annapolis, MD

"The Stansfield Signature group is top-notch! I came into this a bit nervous, not fully understanding the process. This team came in and literally held my hand through it all. They kept close contact to ensure I knew they were there and if I had any questions, to ask and they would answer quickly. That they did. The team was there with me during my time with the title company and was extra attentive to ensure communication was clear and that the wording matched all that was discussed. This took a huge weight off my shoulders. I am super excited to work with the Stansfield Signature Group in the purchase of my new condo. This has been a very comfortable and happy experience for me! I truly feel grateful for all the attention they put into making sure I was comfortable.”
Stacy M. - Alexandria

Without hesitation, we recommend Stansfield Signature. Joan Stansfield and her highly qualified team meet you where you are in every aspect, including budget, pace, and experience. Professional and trustworthy, Stansfield Signature will guide you honestly and with kindness. They are mindful of the client’s needs, and tailor their services accordingly, rather than trying to fit the client into a mold.

We did not have a time-sensitive desire to purchase, yet Stansfield Signature was patient with us. They provided plenty of education, allowing us to make informed decisions. However, when expediency was required, the Stansfield team was quick to respond and made things happen.

Ultimately, we submitted one offer on one home, which was accepted, and we closed without issue! Following Stansfield Signature’s advice, we also sold our previous home in less than a week at a great price. This was an extraordinary experience, considering the 2021 market. Gratitude to Dana, Joan and everyone at the Stansfield Signature team."

The Stansfield Team is awesome! They were able to locate the perfect property for me and managed the process to close flawlessly. I highly recommend and look forward to my next opportunity to work with them!"

John G., Falls Church, VA

When we decided to sell our house earlier this year, it was in a hurry and we really weren't sure how to price our waterfront home in a transitional market. Joan and her team did a quick market analysis, helped us with staging and then took over with the marketing. The result? We sold for full list price within 5 days. Go team Stansfield!"

Paul M., Annapolis, MD

Joan and her team are wonderful! Smart, efficient, and great to work with. Bought a home and sold a home with them in the last year and were so pleased!"

Sue D., Vienna, VA

Team Stansfield's performance was simply outstanding. From the beginning, though the end Joan's advice and counsel were spot on. She provided a pathway from how to prepare the house, when to list, how much to list for, and the best time to close. As a bonus, we received two offers within two hours of listing and sold above listing price. Couldn't ask for better!"

John B., Fredericksburg, VA

There will never be a realtor who takes such good care of their clients as Joan and team. We had many realtor friends so choosing a realtor was very tough for us. She helped stage our home, made suggestions for minor improvements, raised our expected listing price and sold it in a month. We received a full price offer in a market that was not moving. Joan made the inspection and closing process so stress free with her experience, knowledge, connections and great joy for the entire process. Her attention to detail is inspiring--like the way she helped stage our home so beautifully that we no longer wanted to move! She is the most grateful and caring professional and we continue to see everyone we recommend to her (and there have been tons of clients!!!) experience the same level of success we found."

Dana is the absolute BEST! I met Dana through a co-worker recommendation. From the first meeting, I knew it was the right fit. I am very picky (Dana would know), and I was most picky about the agent I wanted to work with. Dana was lovely, patient, fun, educational and helpful. Most importantly, she really cared about me, my timeline, and kept me in check of what is practical for me, my budget and my preferences. I learned a lot, and took a lot of her advice, and she only offered them when needed. I wanted to avoid an agent that was breathing down my neck where I feel pressured. Instead, she understood my entire situation, and guided me through my options, decision process, and made herself available the whole time. I looked forward to looking at houses with Dana, she made it fun and exciting rather than an overwhelming process, or a chore. So much so that I would still go and look at houses with her now even if I'm not on the market! She worked for her client, and went above and beyond to be more than just your agent, but truly as a caring friend. She took care of everything given my ridiculously hectic schedule, and worked tirelessly on my behalf when I am not able to. Even with difficult, unresponsive sellers that we dealt with, she filtered me away from the headache and frustration of dealing with them. Most importantly - we were able to find the right home that fit all my (picky) requirements, and I am forever thankful for her. I would absolutely recommend DANA J. to any homebuyers in the market, especially for first time home owners as she will help you learn through the process. Lastly, their team with Joan and Tabitha, have been the most accommodating to me. I cannot say more positive words to recommend this team to anyone in the market in the DMV area THANK YOU Dana! ( ...and I still think we need to get on that TV show, we'd be the best partners!)"

Batang, Alexandria VA

Joan and her team did an excellent job staging our rental property and getting it rented for the full asking price very quickly."

Jonathan J., Alexandria VA

Joan and her team have helped us navigate purchasing two homes, listing them for rent and selling one in the midst of a pandemic in the past six years. Joan is spot on in the market - is honest and direct at preparing the homes for rent and sell. Her buyers team was patient as we looked at many houses. All around you could not find a better team to help you through the stressful moments in life. Kudos Joan. (May 2020)"

Baylee K., Herndon VA

Dana and her team are amazing! We were referred to her by a friend of the family and we can’t say enough good things about our experience.

We switched to working with her after working with another broker who wasn’t all that familiar with the market we were honing in on, Vienna. We’d heard really good things about her and liked that not only had she been a broker in the area for over 20 years, but also lived in the community most of her life. We found her to be very knowledgeable and well connected.

Prior to working with Dana we were often frustrated by how fast the market moved and not being aggressive enough to see houses as they came to market. We would often pull up to open houses that were cancelled and under contract in the first 2-3 days. Dana was a godsend. She had the inside scoop on what houses were coming on the market and dropped everything to get us in early. Also, with 2 young kids in tow, she accommodated our very small and particular windows of time! 

When we found the home we wanted she helped us get a competitive offer in same-day. Most importantly, she was one of the best communicators we’ve ever worked with. She was on top of every detail, and not only proactive in her communication with us, but the selling agent as well. We came to learn how important that would be when we found water damage in the house. Dana handled the situation with great tact and diligence until every aspect of the problem was resolved which in the end saved us time, money, and stress.

Outside of just being a fantastic agent for us, we truly enjoyed working with Dana and her team. They were always up beat, genuine and just enjoyable to go through the process with. And they’re truly invested...since closing Dana has continued to check in and see if we need anything; she’s been a great resource for good contractors and babysitters!

We feel really lucky to have found her and highly recommend Dana and her team to anyone thinking of buying and/or selling a home. (June 2020)"

Meg S., Vienna VA

Joan was our agent and was incredibly pleased with her and the entire team. From the first day until the sale day, she and her team were organized and ready to help us sell our home despite a bunch of challenges. The staging was immaculate, and the brochures were great, but the best thing about Joan and her team was the responsiveness. They were awesome."

Martin S., Alexandria VA

Buying a home during a global pandemic isn't ideal, but Dana Jackins made it look easy. She was responsive, easy to work with, professional and really went the extra mile. We are new to the VA area, so she supplied stores, handymen, plumbers, etc for future reference. Dana made a very challenging process seamless; I moved from California and Dana worked out all the details so I could glide through the walkthrough and closing. We depended on her immensely during the price negotiation, and she came through with flying colors. I would recommend Dana Jackins highly. I trust her and appreciate her over the top efforts. We are SO happy in our new home! (June 2020)"

Dawn F., Reston VA

Joan has deep knowledge of the real estate marketplace and is a true professional who listens to a client's top priorities to find them the perfect place to call home. She and her team provide more than the standard service as she welcomes you into a community and helps you during the stressful transition of selling and buying. We felt we got the best deal for our money. Thanks Joan!"

Katherine M.

We worked with Dana Jackins to purchase our first home in Alexandria and she made the entire process so easy! She took some time initially to walk us through the general process and connected us with our lender so we could get pre-approved, and then when it was time to start looking at houses she was incredibly responsive and quick to schedule viewings. We found a house that we loved (quicker than we expected to) and she expertly helped us through writing a competitive offer that ultimately won us the contract! In addition to being a rockstar at her job, Dana is also super personable and fun to be around. She made the house-buying process (even in the midst of a pandemic) extremely enjoyable and fun! If we're ever looking to buy a house again in the future, she'll be the first person we call! (May 2020)"

Courtney N., Alexandria VA

When we bought our house in 2014, we had to compete against other buyers, and we had to move quickly. Joan's savvy advice on what to offer was the key to our successfully buying the house. She and her staff were helpful and responsive all the way through the process. Joan also helped me sell my townhouse. Her advice on how to market the house led me to put the right amount of money (and no more) into it to get it ready for sale. The sale went quickly and yielded more money than expected. Her staff was also helpful here; they cut through the bureaucracy involved in getting required homeowner association documents that I was having trouble obtaining. In sum, Joan and her staff provided knowledgeable advice and responsive service. I highly recommend Stansfield Signature Real Estate."

Dale D., Vienna VA

We searched carefully for a top realtor and interviewed several. Joan was far and away the best. She was knowledgeable, had fantastic suggestions and a solid plan from the start. Joan and her team were always in contact with us and very responsive so that even though we were overseas throughout, we knew what was happening at all times. The services she provided were excellent and she and her team went to great lengths to make our home sale went smoothly. Thanks to her professionalism, our home sold within a week of listing. Really excellent experience!"

Denna B., Vienna VA

We had a great experience working with Joan and her team at Stansfield Signature. They made the confusing, crazy, and somewhat overwhelming experience of buying a home feel smooth and simple. After the open house, my husband and I were able to quickly connect with Joan and make an offer on the house right away. Now we have a house that we love!"

Ann M., Washington Grove MD

Joan and her team helped us sell our condo and buy our dream home! We were first time sellers and Joan was available to us 24/7 (even with our anxious silly questions) and made the process go smoothly. Anything that came up, she took care of without stressing us out at all. Working with her team felt like you were being taken care of by family or a good friend. Not only was she available constantly, but she had a network of people to help get our condo market ready.

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."

Chelsea S., Ashburn VA

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.”

Jennifer B., Falls Church

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.”

Mickey L., McLean, VA

“You are one of the lucky ones!  To work with Joan Stansfield and her team is to be totally supported in your real estate endeavor from start to finish. Outstanding professionalism, expertise, reliability, responsiveness to individual situation, extensive resources, careful organization and attention to detail are all hallmarks of this exceptional agent.  She provides a level of personal service that is seldom seen in business today.”

Pam K., Vienna, VA

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.”

Patricia D., Arlington, VA

I know God led us right to you, and were so pleased with the “team” we made. Thanks for everything, and we wish you all the success in the world. Do let us know if there is anything we could ever do to help. We’d recommend you a million times over.”

Erin M., Falls Church, VA

Joan managed to sell our house after the real estate bubble burst! She was great to work with, very conscientious, thorough, high-energy, and personable. We would definitely go with her again if buying or selling in the DC area.”

Shonna & Andy D., Alexandria, VA

Joan combines wise expertise with a compassionate human touch. She is a professional’s professional who is passionate about what she does and always puts people ahead of product”

Mark O., McLean, VA

Joan and her prized assistant Tabatha were great. Very professional and precise in selling my Reston condo. I highly recommend them and I will use Joan again in the future."

‘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."

Alan T.  - Herndon, VA

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!"
