Mike goes ABOVE AND BEYOND his role to ensure that his clients needs are met and their rights as tenants are clear if/when there is conflict in the residence that are not being resolved. He is patient, genuine and hardworking around the clock to the point where he makes each of his clients feel like they are his top priority. There aren’t enough ways to express my gratitude to him for all of his guidance throughout such a stressful time in my life when I didn’t know if I would have somewhere to call home in time considering the critical circumstances I had been experiencing.
I recommend Mike to all of my friends and co-workers for the extreme lengths he goes to to make others lives far less stressful in searching for a place to call home and keeping the rights of his clients clearly communicated and their best interests in mind.
Thank you for all that you do, Mike. You are truly a superhero!

I’ve worked with Mike on several transactions- he is a smart agent with a lot of experience. When I have questions, he’s always able to give me a good answer and explain his reasoning. Mike understands how to partner with all the parties involved and gets a good result. He is a shrewd and perceptive negotiator, frequently knowing what the other side is thinking, which has helped a lot in negotiating a better price. Mike even has furniture and a crew on deck to stage his houses when they are being shown for sale! Truly a full service agent, who is experienced and easy to work with.

I wrote a heart-felt positive review for Mike Lefevere in May 2018. I could write for him again and again to make sure he gets recognized because he deserves everyone’s attention in real estate. In my book, he won the realtor of the year award. Yes, he is that good. He is my realtor for 2 years and handled three separate transactions for me successfully and timely for my 4-bedroom single family home in Northern Virginia. He located my first year renter on the second day when the house was on the market. Then he located my 2nd year renter prior to the house on the market. Further impressive, he found me the buyer offering a full price on the first day the house on the market. We closed the house in 21 days. Who can beat his record? This is not coincident. It is his skills, his effectiveness and his critical thinking. As his client, I reap the benefit through and through. Ah, BTW, he has a whole crew support him so you get more than just him. That’s a strong force you would like to have when you are ready to sell or rent your house. Mike was with me and had my best interest in mind at all times. That impressed me. For instance, I was ready to pay workmen for whatever work they rendered. He would prompt workmen insightful questions that I would never have thought about. And further he would negotiate the good deals with workmen as he was dealing this for himself. I treated him as my business partner and appreciated his brilliant advice. He is a very logical thinker and smart in many important ways (e.g. set the right price point, know what needs to press and what to let go, etc.). We worked very well together. He never stepped on my toes but was always there to support me 100%. I wish I had more houses for him to sell/rent or house to buy. On the other hand, for those who need a really really GOOD realtor. Here you go. He is the ONE to catch. I already spread my words to all my friends because I wanted them to have the best real estate service. Good luck to you too!!!

This team is awesome! Having worked with Mike and his team for two rentals and a home purchase over the last five years, my wife and I have found a realtor and team we can trust. We recommended Mike to multiple friends, who have reiterated how thankful they were to work with him for their home purchases. Every step of the way, Mike ensured we were informed and looked out for our interests above his own. He advised us what we should fight for, and even more important, when it was time to walk away, demonstrating time and time again that he is looking out for his customers long-term interests, a rare quality in realtors. Mike constantly took time to explain offers, contracts, inspections, and closing, which gave my wife and I peace of mind throughout our real estate transactions with Mike. I am not a real estate professional, but I have worked with other realtors buying and selling house, and I can say it pays to know an honest and hard-working real estate professional. That is what my wife and I found in Mike and his team when we started working with them five years ago. As long as we are in Northern Virginia, I will work with Mike. An honest realtor is like an honest mechanic, they are worth their weight in gold if you can find them. As a side note, we still call Mike for advice on contractors, mechanics, and good restaurants. He has delivered every time.

My neighbor referred me to Mike Lefevere for my recent house rental agent. I didn’t just take him in without interviewing other realtors. He stood out in many ways. With the initial 2-hour conversation, I learned a bit from him for how I would go about to get house ready for rent and more. It was super educational to me. So I knew he would have my best interest in heart at the get-go. Once we worked together, I even liked him more. He was responsive and flexible and easy to work with. He knew when to accept my proposal and when to push back. He never pressured me and was there to listen to my thoughts. Through our working relationship, I valued his opinions and often asked for his advice. We worked well as one unit and did a tremendous good prep work together and set the price right. As a result, Day 2 my house was listed on the market, we got the applications poured in already. That was an incredible record. Going forward, I’ll definitely ask him to represent me for house sale.
Stuart & Barbara – Reston, VA
Having moved many times, we can honestly say that our recent condo sale was the smoothest and most positive home sale experience we have ever had.
Lizzy and Mike were patient – we were not quite ready to sell, but they did all the legwork including giving us expert advice about our home value, making us comfortable with the best time to sell, taking professional photos and creating a beautiful sales brochure. When we were ready to put our condo on the market, we gave them a narrow window to sell and they hit it – they sold our condo very close to list price within 3 weeks! All this while they minimized disruption by showing our home entirely while we were traveling.
Once we were under contract, they handled everything very smoothly, including document amendments, inspections, a complex financing arrangement and an absentee closing, We were traveling for much of the time, and they did a great job of keeping us in the loop on progress while moving the process along. They even arranged for us to sell much of our furniture to our home buyer.
Aside from being very professional and effective, Mike and Lizzy were very friendly and a pleasure to work with.
We highly recommend Mike and Lizzy and the whole Lefevere team for your next home sale.

Lizzy is a full service Realtor!
I was amazed at the attention to detail and still the ability to move at a fast pace. She staged my condo, scheduled repairs (with highly skilled people), and had multiple offers on the unit quickly. The thing that really impressed me is that she took care of everything! I’m a hands off repair person; what would have taken me weeks to schedule and get done she was able to accomplish almost immediately. All this service, I was expecting a huge extra bill, but it was almost all included in the standard commission and what wasn’t I was notified about upfront and it was much less than I was able to get done on my own and she and was able to get me a good price!
Bill & Nancy – Herndon, VA
I was the original owner and lived in my home for 41 years when I decided to sell it. Having little or no knowledge of realtors in the area I selected Lizzy Lambert and her team from Weichert Realtors. I based this decision on the fact that earlier in the year, she and her team sold a home a block away and the same model as my home in one week. Based on this information, I concluded that she was either very lucky or she had the skills required to sell my home at the least ideal time of the year.
My wife and I met with Lizzy and her team while in the middle of an improvement project (laying new carpet). She presented her team’s resume and toured my home. After the tour she made a few recommendations and proposed a plan and schedule to market my home.
Bottom line we as the sellers and her team worked together, talking often and modified our plan as needed. The end result was a sale in approximately five weeks for an amount that both seller and buyer felt satisfied with.
Lizzy’s team maybe smaller then many but I believe they excel in a more customer focus approach.
Gail & Jim – Reston, VA
Mike and his team went far beyond what I would expect from any realtor. In fact, I have been a licensed agent for 15 years; both resale and new construction sales. Mike and his team were spot on with timing and communications with us. He did everything (and more) to make sure we closed on time. This Townhome is in Reston, VA. Need I say what the Reston Association can be like to deal with? Well, Mike handled it smoothly while I was out of town the majority of the time. We received 2 offers after being on the market for only one day!
Thank you Mike and Lizzy for all that you have done to complete this sale. I was truly impressed by your professionalism and follow-up.
Brian & Jackie – Centreville, VA
I have used the Lefevere Team for two home purchases and a home sale. The most honest, helpful and effective team. Mike and Anne went above and beyond to help me get my house ready for market in only 2 weeks! They made the buying and selling process easy during an extremely busy time for me. I simply cannot say enough positive things – I am their customer for life!
Sam Abbas & Family – Leesburg, VA
“I relocated from overseas with my family for business reasons and entered USA on a work permit. Getting a mortgage approved was not an easy task knowing my visa has a short lifetime. We started the house hunt in Mach 2013 and closed August 23, 2013. That’s almost 6 months of financing, challenges and delays from lenders, etc… throughout the process the Lefevere Team was my only guide and adviser. Michael and Anne were more than patient and understanding to the situation, I never felt I was rushed, for every challenge I faced they presented a solution or a work around. They good thing about working with a team is that they are always available to help you or meet with you, I was never turned down for any face to face appointment. If one of them is busy the second person is always available. They even went beyond the “call of duty” and helped me find a home inspector, termite inspector, Radon Gas inspector, painter, title attorney, etc… The Lefevere team is a real team and really provide a turn key real estate solution, they are very well connected in northern Virginia. My family and I couldn’t have been luckier to have them as our real estate agents. Without any hesitation i recommend the Lefevere team to anyone who is looking for an “honest and straight forward” real estate team who will give you facts as they are… and who will under promise and over deliver. Thank you Michael and Anne for helping us find the right place after a looooong stay in hotels and furnished apartments.”
Sue Hurwitz – Oak Hill
“Working with Anne and Michael made selling my home a worry-free experience. They knew the potential market and focused their efforts on contacting the right agents. The real estate market may be slow right now but they managed to find the right buyer at the right price in less than two months. I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend the Lefevere Team!”
Anne and Tom, PotomacFalls
“We could not have been more fortunate than to unexpectedly meet Anne and Mike at an open house they were conducting! We were in the market to sell our home and purchase a new one, but lacked the guidance we needed. Anne’s wealth of experience and knowledge were invaluable in providing a strategy to proceed through what can be a difficult process! Anne was always available to help us and her patience was exceedingly valuable to keep us on track. We not only had an offer on our property in very short order, but her strategies in securing us our new house enabled us to find a property in a very sought after neighborhood! The settlement process could not have gone smoother without the Lefevere team! Additionally, our son could not be more happy with his new neighborhood filled with new friends! Do yourself a favor and turn to Anne and Mike for any of your real estate needs!”
Tom and Martha Mills – Oak Hill
“One could not ask for more from a realtor than what can be found with the Lefevere team. From the minute we first decided to sell our home Anne and Mike provided a wealth of support and excellent advice combined with no uncomfortable feeling of pressure from them. The experience of this team is evident in all phases of the transaction from helping us decide what we needed to do to make our house sell fast, pricing our home, presenting it to the public and finally to making sure that closing went through without a hitch. They were always available and willing to listen to our wishes, yet freely gave us their excellent advice in a non threatening way. We so enjoyed getting to know both Anne and Mike and would recommend them to anyone who wishes for a very knowledgeable and professional, yet friendly and comfortable, relationship with their realtor.”
Mark and Lisa Smith – Centreville
“With our corporate relocation we had limited time to locate our next home. Within a few hours of being with Anne she knew what we needed as far as schools, commute, privacy and type of house and did not waste any time showing us potential properties. Upon identifying our new home we had to work quickly to present an offer and negotiate a purchase and sale agreement within hours to avoid the potential bidding war that was common for the market. Anne worked late into the night faxing offer documents back and forth to close the deal. We are convinced that if we had any other realtor we would not have gotten the home and location we enjoy today at the price we were able to negotiate. Anne is the best!”
Dan & Becky Wright – Oak Hill
“Anne and her team were always available to my wife and me. We called many times on short notice and we were always provided service without complaint or problem. Anne is extremely knowledgeable of the area and the product on the market. This knowledge was indispensable to us and we were able to complete our home sale and purchase quickly. The purchase of our new home was a complicated one involving out of state owners. Anne handled this issue expertly and our closing went smoothly. We love our new home and thank Anne and her team for all they did for us!”
Leeanna and Dan Currie – Oak Hill
“Anne’s team is a marketing machine. Our listing had high visibility quickly. Her team was always accessible and worked hard to obtain multiple offers.” “Anne is experienced, insightful and advised us professionally. She managed our expectations….and then exceeded them! The selling process was easy as Anne guided us every step of the way.” “We have worked with lots of realtors…Anne is the best of the best!”
Scott and Ginger Marshall – Oak Hill
“Anne and her team set and raised the bar on what it means to be a full-service listing agent. I cannot imagine a more responsive and dedicated team of professionals. We definitely recommend their services to anyone who intends to sell. We were impressed with not only the outstanding guidance on preparation for listing our property, but also with the personal attention received during the showing period and throughout the sales process. This is not an agent who disappears after your house is listed. She and her team are with you–and work for you–from start to finish! Thanks Anne!”
Ed & Susan Sugrue – Fairfax
“The Lefevere team was the best part of searching and buying a house in the Fairfax, Virginia area. They were always supportive and always available. We really felt they had our best interests at heart. We have no doubt that without them we would not have had such a great buying experience and such a wonderful new home.”
Jeff and Rachel Kahler – Ashburn
“Anne, you are the best! Having moved several times throughout the country; we can say without hesitation, that your knowledge of the local market and commitment to selling our home is the best we’ve ever seen. You somehow made us feel like we were your only client, yet we knew you had many. Other sellers have said the same thing. Thank you and the Lefevere team for all you did~ not only selling our home, but for getting us a great offer.”
Paul & Corrine Gormont – Oak Hill
“We recommend Weichert’s Lefevere team for anyone buying or selling property. They’re professional, honest, and most of all, effective. We were leery of the whole process in the beginning, but soon found that we couldn’t have done it without Anne, Michael and Jason. With the team’s advice and help, we got the house we wanted at the right price, and we sold our home at the best price in record time. It’s a tricky market, and the team’s experience paid off.”
Lowell & Mary Pratt – Oak Hill
“My wife and I have known and worked with Anne in the Oak Hill area for more than a dozen years and have found her to be an outstanding Realtor. There’s no more knowledgeable, conscientious or harder worker around and we’ve always found her efforts on our behalf to be top notch.”
Anthony Rennier – Herndon
“Thank you for helping me to sell my home in the Herndon area. I have had a few experiences buying and selling homes over the years and you are by far the most capable and professional Realtor I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
In particular your advice for getting my home ready for sale and your list of other professionals who helped us with the dozens of minor home improvements required for great showings allowed me to go from start to listed in an unbelievable short period of time. I was also very impressed with your skill at helping me determine the right price and negotiating a contract that gave me everything I had hoped for just 3 days after listing the property!”
John and Elizabeth Gillooly – Oakton
“Anne helped us get our home of 16 years on the market and aggressively priced the listing. We received several contracts on our home within days, and Anne was our guiding light throughout the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home.
Anne should be commended and praised for her exhaustive patience and professionalism. Her illustration of value-added service is something that cannot be overlooked, and, indeed, should be recognized by her colleagues in the real estate profession as a model to emulate.”
