“Whitney was constantly in contact with me, always updating me on the progress of the home as well as answering all my questions. She was professional and kind at every interaction and made an overwhelming process very easy. I enjoyed working with Whitney and look forward to our next transaction. ”
Dannean, Alexandria (Seller)
“Whitney Minnich is an active member of my neighborhood and has extensive knowledge of the local market. She is personable, attentive and proactive, three key traits in a realtor. Her approaching to selling is modern and swift, using technology and an expansive, multi-pronged marketing approach [neighborhood-specific website, flyers, brochures, etc]. She understands what current buyers are looking for and provides prudent advice to sellers to prepare their home to reach the most optimal sales outcome.
From start to finish, Whitney was on top of things, from accurately assessing the value of our home, advising us on effective staging, to preparing the advertising in just a few days. She was quick and effective in her communications with the buyers' agent and we had no challenges with the negotiations. In fact, I believe that Whitney's expeditiousness played a significant role in our successful outcome.
Importantly, Whitney's client communication is outstanding; she proactively keeps clients informed, provides helpful tips and reminders, and explains the various steps of the process thoroughly and patiently. We were never left to wonder if things were moving forward or confused by what comes next; Whitney regularly kept us abreast of developments and was always accessible and available if we had questions or concerns. Additionally, Whitney went above and beyond in helping us stage our home and support us in preparing the house for photos and an Open House. She literally rolled up her sleeves to help us present our home in the best possible light. Most uniquely, we felt that Whitney cared. While this is ultimately a business transaction and a job, Whitney's warmth and attentiveness through several stressful moments was the ultimate proof that we had chosen the right realtor. Whitney sets the standard for a phenomenal realtor. We feel very fortunate to have had her represent us and wish her all the best in the future!”

“Whitney is a great agent. She held my hand and walked me through what I thought was a very stressful time in selling of my condo.. ”
Curtis S Olson Senior Travel Consultant (Seller)
“Whitney Minnich is outstanding in every category. Her professional demeanor, transparency about the cost breakdown, attention to detail, punctuality and availability - she exceeded our expectations in every way, and we are already excited to find other buyers to recommend her to. And, not only is Whitney very professional and a great communicator, she's also so much fun to work with! ”
Miki Smith, Alexandria (Buyer)
“I was blown away by Whitney Minnich's dedication, responsiveness, and communication throughout my entire home buying process, even after I decided to purchase new construction and it took about six months to be completed. The entire six months Whitney continued to go out of her way to attend every meeting, explain every detail of the process, and answer any / all of my questions, no matter how menial they may have been. As a first time home buyer, this level of service and commitment was greatly appreciated and really put me at ease throughout the whole process. Honestly, I rarely had to ask questions because she preemptively explained and reexplained everything that I needed to do, think, sign, and understand. Working with Whitney, I knew I was getting honest advice from someone who was well-seasoned and had my best interest in mind. I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Whitney. No questions asked, when I am in the market for another property or want to sell my house, she will be the first one I call. ”
Alexia Marchetta, Arlington (Buyer)
“ We met Whitney at an open house. We have dealt with several other brokers over the years, and we immediately felt comfortable with her because she was informative but not aggressive, and she seemed down to earth. She has a great knowledge of homes in the area, and when we asked about homes further out, she researched right away to answer all our questions. She provides outstanding service. From our first meeting, when she listened to all of our needs, answering all questions, to our closing date, when she was a great support and entertainment to our toddler.
Whitney is professional, hard-working, patient, personable and trustworthy. She was a pleasure to work with, and made our two-week purchase timeline possible.
Nathan Blumenthal, Alexandria (Buyer)
“Whitney was the best realtor we could have hoped for! We had a very short time line to find and rent or purchase a house. Not only did Whitney do a great job finding homes with our specifications, after being out with us she had other suggestions based on things we had said during prior showings. We were able to find a perfect house in a couple days, and she arranged the inspection while we were still in town, 24 hours after our offer was accepted. Were out of the state for the actual purchase of our home and Whitney communicated with us weekly and kept us up to date on everything. She was on top of the purchase and we never had to ask for follow up, as she was always one step ahead. We would highly recommend Whitney. She made a potentially stressful situation stress free with her professionalism, knowledge, and thoughtfulness. ”
Heather B., Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“I spoke with several other realtors before talking to Whitney, and by the end of our conversation I had no doubt that she was the person I wanted to work with. What I saw in our initial conversation proved to be true throughout our time working together: She is extremely knowledgeable about properties in the area and became an expert on me and my needs too, so that we were not wasting time looking at places that weren't a good fit. She was so organized that I was set up with access to property listings the same night that we first talked and had a loan officer and pre-approval within a week — a good thing as the property I wanted had a very short timeline and multiple offers (yes, I got it!).
She is also incredibly hard-working and made sure every step of the process was done well, for example, walking through the inspection with the inspector and catching a few details I wonder if he would have caught on his own. Also, among her many outstanding skills, is that she always knew which way North was (important if you want good Southern exposure ).
Whitney is friendly, down to earth, kind and caring, and honest — she was very straightforward in all of our dealings and I knew I could trust her to have my best interests as her priority. But she's also tough and sharp and smart, which was incredibly helpful when we got into a bidding war. She was strategic and savvy and I am sure that the reason I own my home today is because of Whitney. On top of it all, it was simply fun to work with her and I would do so again in a New-York minute.”
Barbara McKenna (Buyer)
“Whitney Minnich was amazing! We moved out of state on the exact day that our house went on the market. Whitney superbly managed everything for us throughout the entire process- including securing a local contractor to do some minor work on the house during the negotiation process with the buyers.
We've dealt with other realtors and I have to say, Whitney's professionalism and commitment to meeting her clients needs can't be beat. From the very beginning, Whitney provided us with detailed and expert advice on how to prepare our house for the market and then produced the most phenomenal marketing materials! We had a record number of hits on the real estate sites and had multiple showings scheduled within HOURS of our listing becoming active! Whitney kept us informed about the status of showings on a daily basis and was super-responsive to our inquiries and concerns. We went under contract within seven days of listing! Whitney ensured that the entire process went smoothly, which was a huge relief for us since we were not living there anymore.
Whitney knows this area and what it takes to accomplish your real estate goals. If you want to make selling or buying a house easy on yourself, I can't recommend Whitney enough! ”
Harmony Johnson, Alexandria, VA (Seller)

“Whitney is such a pleasure to work with and is always available to answer any questions or to follow up. It is not easy to work with agents in DC and she does a good job managing rude agents.”

“I would not use anyone other than Whitney. She knows her business, she's accessible whenever you need her, and she works harder than any agent I know. She is simply the best!”
Nicholas Wise, Alexandria (Buyer)
“Whitney was fabulous! Very professional and knowledgeable. She worked with us throughout the process, taking care of every detail and making sure everything was done correctly and on time. It was a pleasure to work with her. We highly recommend her as an agent.
Whitney produced an amazing video and brochure of our condo. AsI said, she was on top of every step of the process
We were very pleased with the overall experience. Thanks Whitney!”
Tania R. (Seller)
“Whitney is the best realtor I've ever worked with. Knowledgable, quick on the draw and her marketing/sales planning was brilliant. We had an offer on the house within 48 hrs of it hitting the market due to her efforts. If you want a realtor who is committed to your needs and devoted to keeping the sale/purchase of your home as smooth as possible then I will recommend Whitney Minnich every time.
Rick, formerly of Burke, Virginia (Seller)
“Although my husband and I have purchased 3 other homes, Whitney was by far the best realtor we've had. She handled the purchase of our home like it was the purchase of her home. She helped us negotiate the lowest possible price and walked us through each step of the purchase. We trusted her judgment and appreciate all of the effort she put into helping us purchase the perfect home.
Whitney was very accessible and always provided timely communications through texts, emails, and phone calls. She is very knowledgeable about the home buying process and is patient in meeting the needs of her clients. She contacted us months before we were ready to purchase a home and remained in close contact from that point until we purchased the home months later. ”
The Torains, Arlington, VA (Buyer)

“She is quite simply the best. This was not a decision to use a particular real estate company. This was about choosing Whitney.”
