Barbara Jean has sold several pieces of property for us. A large Inn which included a Restaurant, and my home. She was very professional in her approach and was very successful in getting very near our asking price and in a timely fashion. And, this was done when the housing market was just starting its free fall so if she had failed we would have experienced large losses because of a drop in Real Estate values during the period immediately following her performance. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional who can get it done.

Thank you Barbara Jean for kindness and guidance in the selling of our house.  You never gave up hope that we would sell, even when we were discouraged.  Your attentiveness to our questions and concerns was comforting.  As a result, we think of you as a new friend.

Thank you for the persistence and patience in making this sale happen...I cannot thank you enough.



We are so impressed with your professionalism in covering every detail of our Glebe Harbor home sale - open houses, inclusion in regional real estate publications, and excellent newspaper and Internet ads highlighting the special features of the house. We appreciate how easy it is to communicate with you and your advise on how to show our home to its best advantage. It has been a real pleasure to have your represent us. You're the best!

When we decided to look at the Montross area for a retirement home, Barbara Jean LeFon was recommended as an outstanding realtor—and she definitely came through for us!   We had very specific needs, which included a house with everything on one level to accommodate a special needs child.  We let Barbara Jean know what we needed, and she was able to find the perfect house.  She was very knowledgeable about the area and provided us with all necessary information.  We came back to the area several times before we were able to make an offer on the house, and Barbara Jean very patiently showed us the house many times.  She was very helpful throughout the buying process, even following up on a few minor details after the sale was complete.  We would definitely recommend Barbara Jean and Rivah Realty to anyone considering a home purchase in this area.

Barbara Jean remained patient and courteous with us the entire time it took to sell our home in such a very difficult selling market.  I know I was stressed out and frustrated at times with the slow market but she stayed positive.  We appreciated her professional mannerisms and how she took care of those matters needing attention for the closing because we had already moved to Florida.  I definitely recommend Barbara Jean LeFon.  Thank you.
