Below are some of the treasured words from different point of views I received from clients, loan officers, inspector and even lenders I’ve worked with: 


From loan officers:
Jocelyn is one of the hard working and most honest realtors that I have been working for a long time. She truly cares for the best individual interest of her clients and will always guide them as she sets proper expectations to all of them. She gives the pros and cons of a transaction so her clients could make informed decisions. Clients are in good hands with her.”-  Mon Llamas, Southern Trust Mortgage 

If you are buying or selling home, Jocelyn is your best bet, honest dependable and accessible.  Her negotiating skills and excellent personality is a sure winner!!”-  Charlie Banez, Aspen Home Mortgage

 
From an Inspector:
“Jocelyn is an exciting and brilliant realtor, a proven winner with her compassion to homeowners and buyers.  Her expertise is what we need in this challenging market.” -  Ramon Camaya, Home Inspector

From a Lender Rep:
“Your short sale file is complete and very organized.  There is nothing missing and you submitted the file in a very efficient manner and way ahead of time.  I hope all realtors are like you so it will be easy for us too and approvals will be delivered in a short time.  Great job!!! If I ever move to VA., I will be looking for you as my agent.”  Deanna Clifford, Bank of America

 From Home sellers and buyers:

Our relator Jocelyn went above and beyond our expectations. Jocelyn took us exploring houses throughout Alexandria, Arlington, and Falls Church in northern Virginia area for what seemed like endless weekends! She was easy to work with, very knowledgeable , thorough, and helpful in understanding the real estate market. At every home viewing Jocelyn would walk us through pros and cons of each property providing us a balanced view to help us make a sound decision. The most delightful experience was the fact that I don't have to worry other things because everything else including setting up inspections with inspectors and preparing the agreements was done by her. Jocelyn always made us feel like we were her top priority, was quick to respond to emails, text, and clearly brought a wealth of knowledge to the process. She was able to recommend contractors for little projects and has kept in touch after the sale to make sure everything is going well. I highly recommend Jocelyn if you're looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market.

Thank you very much for all your help with the mortgage companies in selling our condo and helping us find a new place to live! There are no words to express my gratitude and appreciation for the incredible service you have provided my family and me. We are so blessed to have found the most confident, reliable, and knowledgeable realtor.

Dorothy Bonaparte  5 star

From onset Jocelyn was professional, knowledgeable, prompt and easy to work with! I knew that I didn't have to worry about anything because Jocelyn took care of everything from dealing with my lender to finding a buyer for my property. Throughout the whole process, Jocelyn made me feel rest assured that all was going to be taken cared of and it definitely was! She worked hard following up constantly with the lender and making sure to keep me informed of anything while also putting out fires without me even knowing it. Jocelyn made my experience as easy and painless as possible. I would recommend Jocelyn to anyone who would like to buy/sell/short sale a property---she does it all and gets the job done right!!! Bottom line, I am so grateful to her as I honestly could not have found a better agent to assist, lead and close the deal. I feel Jocelyn should be commended for her work as an outstanding real estate agent as she goes above and beyond to ensure the satisfaction of the customer. Totally satisfied and I know I have a real estate agent for life.

As a first time home buyer I was inexperienced about most of the process, but Jocelyn was there and helped us through the whole process. She's so very supportive and knowledgable. She worked very fast and handled all the negotiations. We closed the deal and now we have our new home. This wouldn't be possible without Jocelyn. Keep it up and continue helping others.Elizabeth G.

Jocelyn is simply awesome! She was instrumental in the seamless sale of our property in 2011. I never had to deal with any stress or pressure at all, as she took control of everything from beginning to closing. I will surely let her take care of my purchase in the near future.

Erick Sanderson  5 star

Jocelyn is a wonderful Realtor!
We started the short sell process with her about six months ago. Jocelyn explained the process to us in detail from start to finish. Jocelyn put our house on the market last December and we got 6 bids in one week. Six months later, not only did she negotiate the short sell of our house, Jocelyn was able to secure moving assistance for us. How good is that!!!!
I highly recommend Jocelyn,
She helped us get out of bad mortgage situation taking a huge debt off of our shoulders.
She's the best!!!

Dear Jocelyn,
I cannot begin to thank you enough for your services in helping me with the short sale of my home. You made this difficult situation much easier than I ever expected. I appreciate how hard you worked to make sure that the negotiations of the sale were in my favor as much as possible. I was also very surprised at how quickly the process took place, which was also a big relief. It was great that you were always readily available to answer my questions and to give me regular updates on the process. I am so thankful that my actual interaction with the bank was minimal, and that you basically handled the whole thing for me! Please know that I am so grateful we were able to work together and I would gladly give a recommendation for you to a potential client any time. Thank you again.
Sincerely,
Desiree C.

 

 

“Selling a home, especially when you no longer live in the area [we currently live in Florida], can be a very stressful experience.  But if you have the right realtor, it can be as easy as pie.  Jocelyn made our experience selling our townhome in Kingstowne so easy.  From our first phone conversation until closing, she showed us such professionalism, timeliness, and genuine concern.  With each step in the selling process, Jocelyn kept our best interest in mind, always being available to answer questions and address our concerns.  She always kept us abreast of all information and details in regards to closing and helped to ensure that this process happened in the least stressful manner.  If you are in the market to buy or sell in the northern Virginia area, Jocelyn in the realtor for you!”

 

Thanks again for everything you did for us and for the Starbucks gift cards!  We will definitely be in touch when we come in August! - Rob and Mel

“ First time home buyer is very fun and exciting at the same time stressful. Having Ms. Jocelyn Porteria as our realtor agent is a big pleasure. She is very professional and well organized. Her outstanding passion, positive attitude, and determination help made us feel very comfortable and feels like working with a close friend. She is available 24/7 even when she's overseas, she still answer calls, text messages and emails. She made the process nice, smooth and efficient during negotiation. We appreciate her knowledge and ability to give advise dealing with every aspect about home buying. And when the situation came with the financing, she stood up and did not hesitate to help and showed her support in any possible way. We have 100% faith in her abilities and would definitely recommend her to anyone as the BEST REALTOR EVER!” – Rona and Rodolf Buenaventura

 

“I got the best people to work for me when we bought our first home; if there’s a lesson I learned from this “adventure” it’s that the biggest challenge is not so much as finding the most skilled and experience, rather finding the most trust-worthy.  Even as we prayed fervently for the success of this endeavor, we soon realized God heeded our petitions by pointing us to Jocelyn to handle our first home transaction.” – Rodney and Zeny Jaleco

“Hi Jocelyn, again thank you for you very much for your help.  We were relieved with our anxiety and doubts after talking to you.  I’m peaceful to know that I have a “kababayan” to consult with real estate problems.  I will surely come to you again for future transactions.  Regards to you and your family!!”  - Rudy and Letty Sierra

 

"Buying a house was a spur of the moment for me and my wife, Zeny. We've been renters throughout our married life, back in Quezon City and after we immigrated to Virginia in 2003.  We always found a reason not to do it -- we didn't have enough money, we knew so little about buying a home, too many hurdles to jump over. But renting has its disadvantages and the worst of them struck us recently. We decided to finally buy a home but the first challenge was where to start? After asking around, we knew we'd be coming in with a handicap -- the market's picking up, competition for decent, affordable housing was heating up, and we had an extremely tight budget. We've always suspected this was going to be a "long shot" but God answered our prayers and led us to the right people, and one of them was Jocelyn Porteria. From the start, we felt comfortable with Jocelyn anyone will see right away, is very skilled, experienced and hard-working; and she also made us laugh which melted all our anxieties. For a couple of weeks, she made herself our "best friend", available night and day, over coffee meetings or phone calls. She set up an internet "show room" tailored to our specifications which made finding the "right house" easier. She volunteered her observations (and criticisms) which helped us decide. When Zeny finally found our "dream home" Jocelyn moved with lightning speed to get an offer to the seller. I was truly amazed she was able to give us a contract to sign in 24 hours. She worked the deal to "closing", always ready to advise us on what we needed to do and getting the papers in promptly so the sale never fell off-track (we even got some money back from the "closing costs"). We're moving to our new home at the end of October. If there's anything I learned about home buying, 90 percent of it involves trusting your realtor. Beyond the financial requirements, I consider finding an able, trust-worthy realtor like Jocelyn just as important. We will always be indebted to Jocelyn."  - Rodney Jaleco, VA.

“I dealt with a lot of Realtors, Jocelyn is the most professional!! She will be my realtor for life!!  Don Oliveros Dumfries VA.

 

 “Jocelyn was referred to me by a colleague, we started a lasting friendship.  She is very professional and very warm in dealing with clients.  She has a magical touch and very much in control of the negotiation, which gives the full benefit to her clients, I was so impressed.  I will continue to recommend her to anyone who needs expert advise in real estate.  More power to you Jocelyn and thanks for sharing your gift to a lot of people!!”  – Aida Velilla, Dumfries VA.

"My daughter had extreme and unusual circumstances throughout her divorce and settlement of the marital property. Unexpectedly, she was presented with short sale documents less than 24 hours prior to closing and three days prior to the short sale settlement agreement deadline. She was overwhelmed with uncertainties, stress and anxiety. When we contacted Jocelyn Porteria, she generously accommodated the short timeline my daughter was given. At a moment’s notice, Jocelyn promptly reviewed my daughter’s short sale documents, advised us and answered all of our questions. Jocelyn gave us the knowledge and assurance that my daughter desperately needed to make the best decision for her situation. We were so impressed with Jocelyn’s expertise, efficiency and professionalism. She is an outstanding resource on short sales and foreclosures issues.  We highly recommend her." -Letty S., VA.

"We would like to thank you for helping us negotiate our short sale, we were on the verge of filing bankruptcy because of the financial situation my daughter was in. Within a week you were able to talk to the owner and at the same time was making sure the condo looked presentable, and was able to find a buyer. What was unique about all of this we lived in Virginia Beach and the condo was in Northern Virginia. All of these was made possible because of your hard work, expertise and dedication. We would highly recommend you to anyone that is looking for help with the real estate issues because we know that you make the difference. God Bless. We are forever grateful... -

"We highly recommend Jocelyn for her short sale management. She made it easy, less stressful for us in a short span of time (less than 5 months). We were in California and she was in Virginia communicating by phone, email and fax. Distance was never a problem. Paper works were easy with her guidance and expertise. She took care of everything! She is the best and an expert in what she does! - Edwin of Alexandria VA.

 

“My daughter and I had a great fortune in finding you as our realtor/short sale specialist.  You have been so excellent and represented us so well in every step and willing to meet a lot of challenges. From the very start, you explained to us the whole process, collection of required documents and all sorts of communications.  You were there until after closing to make sure we are protected from future collections.  We could not have been in better hands.  We would gladly refer you to anyone seeking real estate assistance.  Thank you for your hard work and friendship”  Ramon and Melissa, Chantilly VA.

 

“We can’t thank you enough for taking this load off our back.  Yes “MIRACLE” does happen.  You made it so painless and very professional with the utmost concern for your clients!! SALAMAT AND GOD BLESS!!  Lito and Ester, VA. Beach

 

“Jocelyn is very instrumental in my family’s peace of mind during a difficult time of our life when we have to give up our home.  She helped us all the way through finally closing on the short sale.  She had so much patience in processing until we got the buyer we prayed for.  Very impressive negotiating expertise with the lenders.  She made sure we are not on the losing end of the deal.  She elevates Fairfax Realty to a higher level of it’s trade” –*** client from Woodbridge VA.
