Testimonial - August 2021
Sarah is unbelievably organized and really listens to her clients wish list. After we had a bad experience with an initial realtor, we solicited the help of Sarah to find our first home, and she made us feel comfortable, was not pushy, and truly wanted us to be happy (rather than to just make a sale). Post move in, she has continued to be an invaluable resource (and ever since, a family friend) providing contacts for roofers, electricians, etcetera. We have also referred Sarah to two other friends who have had equally wonderful experiences finding their new homes in the area. Sarah and Anne are the best!

Sarah and Anne Harrington are top-notch realtors. They are full-service agents who listened to our needs and desires, considered our opinions, yet took care of every aspect of selling our home, making it a stress- free process. Sarah and Anne are true professionals, extremely knowledgable about the market and what buyers are looking for in our neighborhood. Their marketing strategy, constant communication, and attention to detail resulted in the sale of our home within 4 days, well over asking price. I highly recommend the Harringtons to get the desired outcome on your home sale without a hassle.

Entire transaction satisfactory. Quick sale--meaning pricing and timing of the market were nicely synced. The realtors knew their "neighborhood" and guided process to a quick closing.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2016 for approximately $475K in Fairfax, VA.
Highly recommend. Their area of expertise is Mantua, but their extensive experience provides the necessary depth of knowledge needed in any area in the "DMV". They were very open to the many new routes our search took and were patient with us as first time home buyers. They brought hard data on comps to almost every showing that we went to which, combined with their expertise, made us very comfortable with our offers. They were timely and detailed oriented with paperwork and took time to explain to us every line item in each document. One could go on further, but it's probably best to summarize by saying that we wouldn't dream of any real estate transaction without their team being involved.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $750K in Fairfax, VA.
Sarah and Anne were professional, responsive and dedicated in helping us sell our house. They gave us great advice on how to prepare our house to go up for sale. They prepared beautiful detailed brochures (the floor plans were a nice tool for buyers) which showed our house to its best advantage and marketed it with realty sites, realtors and open houses. The price they recommended was spot on. Selling a house and moving is a challenging experience. Sarah and Anne kept us on track and earned every penny of their commission

Sold a Townhouse home in 2016 for approximately $550K in Fairfax, VA.
Both Sarah and Anne are excellent realtors. They work hard from start to finish, making sure the client understands what will bring the best price. They stress the importance of professional marketing materials and good photography (Anne asked that the photographer touch up the outside photo so the sky would be blue rather than grey!) they know the market and provide up-to-date comparative prices, they have a team of excellent support workers (handymen, painters, suggestions for window washers, floor refinishers, carpet cleaners, a stager) and they are very attentive to the client's needs, calling frequently to check on anxiety levels and to see if the client needs anything. They give advice but always stressed that I should feel free to take their advice - or not. I recommend them highly.

Bought a single Family home in 2015 in Fairfax, VA.
The Harringtons are extremely knowledgable and effective real estate agents. They know the business, and they are genuinely interested in helping you achieve your objectives. My wife and I could not be happier that we found the Harringtons to help us with our recent home purchase. We look forward to working with them again in the future

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Fairfax, VA.
Sarah and Anne were wonderful to work with. The gave us their time, their knowledge, their advise and expertise. They helped us through what was a difficult time and got the job done and did it with compassion. We would recommend these lovely and very professional ladies to anyone.

Selling your home can be a daunting task. Where to start? what must be repaired or updated to attract buyers? how to market your home? The realtor team of Anne and Sarah Harrington did all of this for us and more! At our initial meeting, Anne and Sarah walked through our home and made a list of repairs and updates that they thought would improve our home's competitive salability. Sarah then provided us with contact numbers for a handyman, painters, floor & carpet, window cleaners, movers, and more! Our meeting was in late February and with Sarah's help we were ready to put the house on the market by the end of April. Anne and Sarah advised us on the art of staging and had the house photographed and produced an amazing brochure. The open house was scheduled and advertised, and the day BEFORE the open house we had an offer above asking price after less than 12 hours on the market! With Anne and Sarah you get more than realtors- you get a complete package from start to finish to make this process a success!

We employed the services of Anne and Sarah Harrington to sell our house in Vienna, VA. In short, we highly recommend them. . . Anne and Sarah were with us every step of the way as we went through the process of
prepping and staging our home for sale. Their advice was invaluable as we moved toward getting our house ready to list. In the end, we sold our home in three days, largely because of Anne and Sarah's knowledge and expertise.

Anne and Sarah Harrington were wonderful to work with during the purchase of our home. They were extremely knowledgeable of the area and making sure we had all the amenities we wanted in our home. We could not have been happier with our experience.
Here's a recent note from valued clients:
If you are looking to buy or sell a home, you cannot ask for a better team
than Anne and Sarah Harrington. Anne and Sarah represented our family for
both the purchase and sale of our home, so we have had two opportunities to
benefit from their great service and combined experience and expertise.
From the buyer's perspective, their knowledge of Northern Virginia real estate
and its many unique neighborhoods allowed us to make a decision on buying a home
knowing that we had as much information as possible. On the seller's side,
they know everything that needs to get done to make sure you get the most out of
your home. What really separated Anne and Sarah from other agents,
however, was their sensitivity to our own unique needs for our own family.
They understand that, for most people, buying a home means much more than merely
buying a house.

Bought and sold with Anne and Sarah-- Spring 2006
As long-time Mantua residents (since
1996), we appreciated Sarah and Anne Harrington's experience in the market;
particularly in the Mantua neighborhood. After years of planning a renovation on
our house in Mantua Hills, we fell in love with another house in the
neighborhood. Sarah and Anne weighed the pros and cons with us from every angle
and we bought it the weekend it came on the market. Since we hadn't anticipated
selling our house, we needed a few weeks to get the property ready to list. That
was the spring of 2006 when the housing market began to slow down. There were
articles in the paper every day predicting the worst. Anne's experience and
Sarah's marketing prowess guided us through a dynamic market and found us a
buyer in less than 60 days.
The best customer satisfaction question is "would you recommend them to a
friend?" - we have recommended them to several other happy clients in a trying

Anne and Sarah have the
perfect combination of knowledge and experience. They kept us informed during
every step of the process of selling our home and were very flexible and
accommodating - but also firm - whenever the need arose. I accepted every
recommendation either of them made without question because they both quickly
earned my trust. Here's an example: When I made a last-minute decision to
landscape the outside of our home, Sarah had someone over within the hour! The
landscaper did a quality job, and I believe our house sold much quicker because
of it. Most importantly, Anne and Sarah are both delightful people who put a
premium on family values and making sure everyone's needs are met. If you are a
prospective buyer with a family looking for a home anywhere in Northern
Virginia, or a seller looking to move up, you cannot do better than Anne and

Testimonial - October 2009
Anne and Sarah Harrington listed and sold my house in Mantua. The house sold in
the first days of listing, after an open house, for the target sales price.
There was much more to their service beyond the listing and showing of the
house. Anne and Sarah provided a comprehensive service, recommending ways to
improve on the way the house showed, its curb appeal and staging of the
interior. They developed a robust marketing plan and explained and worked with
the current market conditions. Their optimism, accessibility and
professionalism show in everything they do, and I highly recommend their Realty
