"Herbert provided the best experience I have had with a real estate agent, ever. Indeed I don't see how his rating could be any higher than it is. In terms of being honest, courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and ethical, Herbert is outstanding. He helped me to sell my condo in 2018 and negotiated my sale through a challenging process. Whenever we met a bump on the road, Herbert always kept his cool. Also, Herbert has the ability to see both sides of the selling process, the seller's side and the buyer's side. So he is always fair. Thanks Herbert. It was pleasure working with you " - Bob C.
"Herb was great from start to finish. He rolled up his sleeves (literally) to help us with everything we needed to get done to sell our house, fast. We highly recommend Herb if you're looking for someone who will listen to you, make every effort to get things just right, and put your satisfaction first. Thank you, Herb! " - Todd P.
"Herbert Riggs was very accommodating and sharp-witted in guiding us through the buying process. He broke down the entire process into series of manageable steps compounded to the purchase of our house in Cameron Station, Alexandria. Through the series of daily emails and text messages, our trust in Herbert eventually reached a level where my wife and I were comfortable making a house buying commitment with his guidance. Herbert made himself readily available and provided updates regularly; his knowledge of the marketplace was impressive as he tailored showings to our preferences: he would let us know whenever a new house that met our requirements came into the market so that we would all visit and compare the pros and cons. Herbert was not pushy, he openly advised us to forgo houses that piqued our interests and yet required compromises that we didn’t have to deal with. Herbert's recommendations of other professionals you have to deal with in a home buying process were excellent. Frankly, we highly recommend Herbert for his honesty, integrity, and excellence. His actions match his words! " - David R.
