Why should you work with Lydia? Her clients say it better than she can.

Lydia was incredibly helpful in preparing our house, and was aggressive in marketing our home once it was listed. Her advice was insightful and she was tireless in her pursuit of getting us the best price for our home. The result was multiple offers within three weeks of being on the market.

Lydia provided exceptional support in helping us negotiate the final price and closing the deal. Lydia is the type of agent that you want on your side. Her experience in dealing with the complexities associated with settlement ensures that you will walk away with top dollar.  Lydia went above and beyond her duties, and we highly recommend her as a listing agent.

Thanks to Lydia, I’m starting married life in a beautiful townhouse on a quiet cul-de-sac inside the Beltway with views of trees in front and in back. This was the first house Lydia found for us, and after she patiently went with us to look at another dozen houses, we agreed that nothing could be better.

Lydia is all that anyone could ever wish for as an agent. Knowledgeable, informed, efficient, very responsive and extremely helpful without ever being pushy. Simply the best!

We have been more than satisfied with the quality service that she provided us. We flew in had only one afternoon to go house-hunting. Lydia understood perfectly well the budget and the specification we had in mind. She had planned the itinerary in the most efficient way. 

Lydia drove us from house to house with a smile and energy that never faded throughout that 
long Sunday afternoon.
She explained the advantages of each house, the commute to work, the 
neighborhood, and the market value. Once our choice was made, Lydia helped us decide on the offer amount, prepared the documents, and brought them to us at 10:30 that same Sunday evening. She must have been tired but she still smiled.

Throughout the entire negotiating and purchasing process, Lydia was always within immediate 
reach via text, phone, and email. She responded very promptly to every communication we sent.
She answered every question and resolved every issue in a most professional and competent manner. 

Being out of state, I could not handle all the issues that the buyer usually takes care of. Without 
hesitation, Lydia stepped in and handled every situation superbly. She went far and beyond the 
line of duty. Most of all, Lydia did not make us feel as customers, but rather as friends.

It has been a wonderful experience and we have been extremely fortunate to have Lydia 
Benson as our agent. She truly personifies professionalism, courtesy, and dedication.

I would highly recommend Lydia to anyone that may be looking for a property and requires some guidance and local knowledge. Lydia takes the time to understand what is important to make the journey more about not just finding a house, but making a home. Lydia stayed in contact with us and took the time to answer the many questions we had even after we signed. We never felt like we were just another client. We both feel that we made a friend in Lydia and she was much more than just our agent.

I wholeheartedly recommend Lydia as a perceptive agent dedicated to her clients’ needs. She is diligent, hardworking, conscientious, and best of all enjoyable to work with! As a resident of the Washington, DC area, she knows her marketplace and is a great resource. Thank you Lydia for all your efforts!

I refer to Lydia as my real-estate angel because she miraculously helped me find a perfect little home under very difficult circumstances. What comes shining through when Lydia is helping you, is that she is focused on helping you find a place you love, and are truly at “home” in and not her profit.

I am grateful for her work and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. Her professionalism, responsiveness, organization, and negotiating skills are outstanding. She is attentive to each and every issue, and most importantly, she is discreet.

Lydia helped us both sell our house and buy our new house. She was thorough and fair, and kept us right on schedule in the purchase process. She made sure we did not miss any detail or deadline.  Separately, she also represented us in the sale of our home. Lydia was a great help to us preparing our home. She had a lot of great staging ideas and was always very kind when she offered them. She was very aggressive in listing the property, always covering all bases and potential buyers to make sure that everyone was well informed. During the final sale process she represented us better than we could ourselves. We strongly recommend Lydia Benson and will certainly call her again when we need a realtor.

If you are looking for a real estate agent in the DC area, you need to meet Lydia Benson! My husband and I were in desperate need of a bigger place with the arrival of our three month old son. We quickly found our dream home, but it seemed like it would be impossible to make that dream home a reality for us. Never say impossible with Lydia Benson as your agent! We are living in our dream home now and we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Lydia. She is hard-working, professional and pays attention to details. At every turn, Lydia had our best interests in mind and we had our utmost trust in her. Lydia will not disappoint you in your real estate endeavors.  And, as a bonus, she is a joy to be with.

Lydia worked tirelessly for us. Lydia is a professional who pays attention to details. She did extensive research in the process of pricing our condominium and helped us stage our place appropriately (while allowing us to still live there!) and highlighted the major selling points. She was thoughtful at every step. She did follow-up calls with every agent that came through with a client and she remembered details about every potential buyer. I can’t say enough in praise of Lydia Benson. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent!

Lydia has helped me attain housing several times in the past 3 years and working with her each time was easy, efficient, and extremely professional. She pays fine attention to detail updating her clients along the entire process of securing a property and communicating with all parties impressively well. She also offers invaluable people skills catering to each client’s personal needs and addressing specific concerns that may arise. What I really appreciate about Lydia is how timely she responds via phone or email throughout the week and on the weekends. To anyone looking for a friendly and knowledgeable leasing agent in the NW DC region, I would absolutely recommend Lydia’s services. Finding a new home can be a stressful task for many people as it is a huge decision to make. Lydia helps alleviate this stress and will work diligently to be sure you find a home you truly love coming home to every day.

We could not have been happier with Lydia’s efforts on our behalf. Her extensive knowledge of the market was only surpassed by her responsiveness and her dedication to helping us achieve our goals. Whether we reached out to her late at night, early in the morning, over the weekend or during regular business hours, Lydia always responded quickly and thoroughly to our questions and requests.  Beyond her technical expertise, Lydia also brought to the task a very warm and caring personality, which helped make a potentially stressful situation much easier for us to deal with.
