Mafalda Marrocco and Randy French sold our home for the full asking price, after working with us for weeks to make the home as attractive and ready as possible for sale. What is extraordinary about their attitude, service, and reliability was that we are living abroad and did all of this “remotely” through Randy and Mafalda. We had total confidence in their judgment and followed their advice to the letter. We are incredibly pleased with the result! Randy and Mafalda know their trade, have great integrity, and an infallible sense of what makes a home sellable. Of course, we knew this already as they had helped us buy the home in the first place eight years before. They are fantastic!

We have been involved in more than 25 transactions involving buying or selling houses over the past 40 years and we have not enjoyed working with anyone more than Randy and Mafalda.
Randy distinguished himself in several ways, including bringing a solid career of business experience as a senior executive to his clients, being on the job every day scouring the market for homes that were right for his us and being easy to work with. Mafalda made the paperwork/on-line experience as simple as it can be and her attention to the behind the scenes details enhanced Randy’s effectiveness exponentially.
Perhaps most importantly, they both helped us buy the home that was right for us.

Randy and Mafalda are real pros that pay attention to the details.
After purchasing and selling multiple homes across the country, my wife and I have had the opportunity to work with several real estate agents. In spite of the extremely competitive Washington DC area real estate market, our experience with Randy and Mafalda has been the most rewarding. With their advice and experience, we were able to get the house we always wanted, in the right location, at the right price. Randy and Mafalda made what is usually a stressful experience an enjoyable one.
If my wife and I find ourselves selling and/or buying another home we will look up Randy and Mafalda; I hope for my sake that they don’t become too popular!

We worked with Randy and Mafalda to both sell our condo and buy a house last year. For both transactions, Randy and Mafalda provided superb service and communication, guiding us through a competitive Arlington housing market with expert advice.
We weren’t quite sure that we were ready to purchase a house. We had simply started to browse through real estate listings to get a feel for what was available and what we could afford in our target Arlington neighborhoods. Then, one Thursday, a new listing popped up for our dream house. We knew we would have to move quickly if we wanted to have a shot at the house given the hot Arlington real estate market. So, with no prior warning, we called Randy and Mafalda. By that same night, they had arranged for us to view the house, prepared an offer, contacted the sellers to let them know the offer was coming, and coordinated with our lender.
Randy and Mafalda provided great advice on how to structure our offer, and also walked us through how to sweeten the pot to win the ensuing bidding war on the house. Once we were under contract on our dream house, they quickly transitioned to selling our condo under a tight timeline. Their fast work on the condo ensured that we were able to close on the sale of our condo prior to closing on our new dream home, and we were extremely pleased with their pricing advice and the resulting bids.
We would highly recommend working with Mafalda and Randy, and we know we will work with them again on our future real estate needs.

We have known Randy and Mafalda since 2007. They have helped us buy two homes, and they have exceeded our expectations in every area.
Randy and Mafalda are true professionals who fully understand the Northern Virginia market. They combine this expert knowledge with genuine kindness, integrity, and top-notch negotiating skills, as well a willingness to go the extra mile for their clients.After working with them once to buy a home, when it was time to buy our next home, there was no question we wanted to work with them again.
We are now in our dream home, and Randy and Mafalda helped make that happen. Randy and Mafalda were always willing to take the time to answer our questions and explain things to ensure we made completely informed decisions.
We give our enthusiastic and complete endorsement of them to anyone looking for friendly, professional, experienced, and well-connected realtors with integrity.

Randy and Mafalda gave us great advice in connection with the sale of our home in Vienna, and the whole transaction went very smoothly. They were also very helpful in our search for a townhouse. They are knowledgeable and efficient. They are a really great team, a pleasure to work with.
