Earle Whitmore knows how to sell real estate! Earle gave sage counsel in pricing and showing my house so it sold quickly–while other comparable homes were languishing.

I have had the pleasure of working with Earle several times both to buy and sell homes. She is extremely knowledgeable and goes the extra mile by providing referrals for your mortgage, home inspection, closing, etc. I would definitely use Earle again and would recommend her to my family and friends.

Entering the real estate market as a seller at the worst time ever, I researched the Internet for someone with outstanding credentials and excellent references and fortunately “found” you, highly recommended by all. You knew the market, gave me an honest assessment of what I was facing, whether I wanted to hear it or not, and always kept me informed.

Earle, you are one talented and knowledgeable professional. You advised me what action I needed to take to make my house show as well as possible. You marketed my house wisely to gain maximum exposure using the Internet and appropriate mailings, you sold the house, and you accompanied me to settlement.

While, of course, all this was important, what I appreciated the most, Earle, was you honesty. You never held back, and you kept your promises on all counts. You earned my respect and I would highly recommend you to any prospective buyer or seller.

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to take this letter to recommend Earle Whitmore and her team at Long and Foster Realty. February 2009 Earle successfully and quickly helped us sell our home during turbulent times in the economy and real estate market. We are very grateful we chose her as our agent.

When choosing the agent to sell our home, we thoroughly and painstakingly researched all agents with experience and listings in the Northern Virginia area. We came up with a handful of candidates with whom we interviewed. All were qualified, but Earle was impressive. She was the first to respond to our call, had many valuable and original ideas for preparing our home for sale, and was realistic about the price our home could receive (several other realtors gave us prices we felt were unattainable and were merely using the attractive amount to lure us into their office, but our home would never sell or appraise for those amounts). The most important aspect of Earle’s team is their communication; we were always able to easily reach Earle. Her office was always contacting us by sending email updates concerning comparison homes for sale in our area and updates on market trends, and calling us with feedback from buyers and other agents. Her communication was invaluable, and looking back I know it made the process of selling our home much easier and more efficient.

Save yourself the time and effort by utilizing our extensive research of Realtors in the Virginia area. If you are looking for a true professional with experience and amazing communication skills, then look no further! Earle and her team are the best Virginia has to offer.

Two months ago we decided to list our home with Earle and we haven't regretted it! In this uncertain market, we felt we were "testing the waters" by listing, but with Earle's expert help our townhouse sold in just a few days with 3 solid offers! We were very please with the way our home was presented on her website: great photos and a detailed floor plan so on-line browsers could easily envision our house. Earle got us listed on all the best websites to create a lot of traffic on-line and to our property. In the few days our home was on the market we had 20 to 30 prospective buyers and agents visit. Earle presented our offers in great detail and provided insight on pros and cons of each. Our sale and closing went without a hitch due to Earle's great attention to detail.

Earle was just as supportive in helping us find a single family home that met all of our criteria. She dealt with every detail, returned all phone calls, and provided personal attention at every turn. In little more than two months we sold our townhouse and moved into a single family home that we expect to enjoy for many years to come. We will not hesitate to recommend Earle to others.


We want to express our sincere appreciation for the tremendous service you and your staff (Stan and Shannon) provided to us in the sale of our townhouse in Springfield, Virginia.  You provided conservative, spot-on advise for preparing our home for sale. Your marketing using the Internet and impressive hardcopy documentation yielded near-immediate results - 2 offers within 2 days; 5 offers in 5 days!  Your experience and your calming, professional attitude were evident throughout  - most especially when you got us almost immediately back on track when our first prospective buyers changed their mind one week after signing their sales contract... and today at closing.  And, you never missed a detail.

We MOST appreciated your honesty and candor. You never pulled your punches, and you never failed to keep a promise.  We have not  - or will not - miss an opportunity to highly recommend you to any prospective client.

In March 2010, my husband and my Fairfax County, single family home went up for sale in one of the most challenging real estate markets in American history, within 48 hours received interest from several, strong prospective buyers , and went under contract in a matter of weeks for full asking price with the buyer offering to pay all closing costs!

When sharing our story with family, friends and colleagues, we are often asked how we managed to accomplish our objective of selling our home at full asking price in a down market. We tell them we received accurate information regarding market conditions in our zip code and surrounding area, expert knowledge on the state of the local and national real estate market, and wisdom and expertise from one of the industry’s long term and successful realtors, Earle Whitmore. Earle and her team have helped my husband and I buy and sell multiple homes in the last decade. Earle has always supplied us with the proper information, tools, and strategic guidance to help us make successful decisions in prepping our homes for sale, listing at the most beneficial price point, and successfully negotiating on our behalf in the purchase of new homes.

Earle strives for excellence and we are appreciative to have had her as our listing agent. I am confident that we will continue our long term client relationship and log new success stories in the future. We respect and trust Earle and confidently recommend her service to our family, friends, and colleagues.

My wife and I have known Earle and Stan Whitmore since December of 2000. They have been our Real Estate Agents and life coaches since we have known them. We have purchased 2 homes and sold 2 homes with them. Earle and Stan are well established agents that do not need clients, they want clients. There is a vast difference between agents who do their jobs motivated by money versus agents who love what they do and make sure their clients are making the best possible real estate decisions. This is Earle and Stan. With Earle and Stan Whitmore as my agents I feel safe knowing that any decision I make at the end of the day will be made with the best possible information to support my decision. They truly take care of business the way things are supposed to be done and with the utmost respect for their clients.

I'm sure you wouldn't remember me, you have so very many clients. Eons ago you sold me a townhouse in Alexandria, and later a townhouse in Arlington. I remember you as so professional and helpful. I had compete confidence in you. I have worked with other Realtors over the years, but no on was as good as you were. Flat out, no one. I just got my Texas Real Estate license. While taking the mandatory classes, I had in the back of my mind that I want to be as good a Realtor as you were, an undoubtedly still are. You're the model, and while I'm learning to be a great Realtor, I'll remember how easy you made it for me and how much I trusted you to do right by me. I hope to be just as good one day.  Thanks for providing me with this good standard to work toward.

I really enjoyed working with Earle. When I first met with Earle, she really impressed me in knowing the local real estate trends and the neighborhood. When it came time to sell the house, she was demanding making sure my house was de-cluttered and arranged just so, but again, she knew what she was doing and was able to explain every request. Earle was wonderful as she was able to guide me through the contracts submitted all the way through settlement. She and her team took care of all of the details, so that all I had to do was sign documents and she helped to make this transaction as stress free as possible for me. Thanks Earle!

Hi Earle.

I just wanted to close our business relationship with a few words of appreciation. As you will recall, I selected you as my Realtor in the sale of my house after a competition among top sellers in Springfield/Fairfax area. I was impressed with the quality of products you had to offer and your extensive experience, expertise, and apparent diligence. I was not surprised that you and your team exceeded all my expectations. I appreciated your guidance for a quick sale and associated recommendations regarding staging, pre-inspection fix-ups and movers. As you will recall, the process was exemplary in its results and I could not have had better representation during the buyer selection and closing process. Again, thanks for the best in seller support that I could have ever expected and I wish you the best for the future.

This is the first time we have had complete trust and confidence in a realtor who had our best interest at heart. Earle and her team dotted i’s and crossed the t’s of every start to finish detail. Her due diligence and professionalism secured us a wonderful home that has met all of our needs and more. Earle has years of experience with the area, is trustworthy, detailed, and does not mince words; she will look you in the eye and give you valuable, uncommon honesty throughout the process. Not only did she help us find Carolyn to trust with our VA mortgage, her team was a wealth of knowledge when it came to the home inspection. We have no hesitation recommending Earle Whitmore to our closest friends and family.
