eXp Realty - Southeast Virginia Testimonials

We bought a condo in Virginia Beach.

We were extremely lucky to have worked with Amy buying our first home. Not only did she go above and beyond what any agent is required, she stayed in touch with us till this day. Amy answers all questions and is constantly in communication with the buyer. We highly recommend Amy to anyone looking to buy a home! She really is the best!

Christine Cabone

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Deep Creek North, Chesapeake, VA.

We would highly recommend using Amy Oliver as your realtor. She helped us buy our home 4 years ago and she was so diligent in helping us find what we wanted and helping us relocate to VA. So we knew that when we were moving again Amy Oliver was the realtor for us. She was so on top of everything. Our listing WOWed us! She made our house look so good I told her that I want to buy my house again! Our house had a contract at 31 days! She was quick to respond to my questions. She made the whole process go smoothly and that is priceless.

Heather Hancsak

We are very grateful for everything Stephanie did for us.

She was always willing to help and do anything she could to help ease the process of looking for and buying a new home. When we found the perfect home she made all the steps to closing day so much easier! Thank you Stephanie for all that you did.


I was very pleased with the service I got from Stephanie, she was informative and helpful in explaining all the terms and agreements of the contract.

She helped me with the purchase of my first home and made the buying process go smoothly.


As a first time home buyer, I didn't know what to look for, what I was getting myself into, and what my options were.

Daniel Inman was able to help me out through the process by always answering the numerous questions I had (even though I'd asked the same question at least three times). He was very patient and informative with me (the novice). He took the time to connect with me and really understand what my needs and wants were for the property and how we could meet them. Daniel has a keen and enthusiastic ability to be very caring and understanding of people and real estate.

Yoana M.

Dan did a fantastic job.

His market research showing which markets were hot/cold and how the location I was looking for fit into it was a cut above the rest. As a first time home buyer, he was very patient with my barrage of questions and had all of the necessary knowledge to answer quickly and accurately. Highly recommend for anyone looking to buy/sell in the Hampton Roads/Tidewater area!

Quinn P.

Dan was so great to work with!

He was knowledgeable, personable, and always available throughout the buying process. It's easy to see that Dan cares about his clients and had my best interest in mind no matter what road (or street) that took us down. I would recommend Dan to my friends and anyone looking for a realtor in the area!

Maria W.

Top quality real estate agent.

I have nothing but good things to say about my home buying experience with Daniel. He did an amazing job of breaking down all the questions I had as a first time home buyer. He also managed to save me from paying any closing costs, got my apartment lease break covered, with a couple hundred dollars left over. Highly recommend Daniel as your real estate agent. Thanks again!!!!!!

Michael R.

Dan was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire home-buying process.

He was prompt in scheduling tours of any houses I was interested in seeing and was very quick in addressing any questions or concerns I had.

Zach E.

I have yet to enter into a transaction with Tiffany although I hope to do so in the near future.

So far, Tiffany has provided a lot of insight into real estate investing and she offers great insight into the local market. Also, she’s always very responsive which is always appreciated.

Dana B.

I would hire her again in a minute!

I never met her until the first time to look for houses since I was 3 hours away. I didn't sign with her until I was ready to put in an offer. She did not pressure me at all. She looked out for me through the whole process. I am so grateful that I worked with her!

Tammi M.

I bought my home towards the end of January and I have been so busy enjoying my humble abode!

I did not want to miss this opportunity to leave a review thanking Chan'tiss and Melvin, they are a huge pleasure to work with. I could not have been more blessed in this process of buying my first home. If I had any questions (which there were a few). I always had answers I needed and in such a quick manner. I felt as though this team was helping me find exactly what I wanted in a home. I could not have been more comfortable with this process if it wasn't for them helping me along the way! I'm thankful for their help every day I walk into the door of my home. Will recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Savanna Wood

Chan'Tiss and Melvin are great.

They found my daughter exactly what she needed to fit her budget.

Shelly Apple Outten

Chan'Tiss and Melvin are better known as "The Power Couple" and they know how to handle ALL of your real estate needs.

Give them a call today!

Cassandra Tart

Chan'Tiss was great to work with.

Took the time to show me everything I ask to see. Daniels Realty is such a great company, will definitely work with them again.

Rhonda Cooper

I'm not just saying this because we've known each other for years, but they are truly genuine and passionate about their work.

The compassion and hard work they shown to help my family find a rental home was beyond amazing. I can't wait to work with them on purchasing a home.

Janetta Boone

Chan'Tiss is AMAZING, my family and I will forever be grateful!

If you are in the market for a home and are looking for a realtor you can trust, I would look no further than Chan'Tiss; I know I sound like an infomercial but I genuinely mean every word I say in this review. From the moment I met Chan'Tiss I was immediately drawn to her humble demeanor and genuine passion of her craft. Not once did I feel pressured into buying a home and not once did I feel any of my questions were ignored or ridiculed. She was always available for a phone call and never set business hours during the entire process. As a member of the U.S. Military (Navy) I place a high amount of value in ones loyalty, drive, dedication, and ethical/moral character; Chan'Tiss' loyalty is to her family and her clients, her drive is to ensure you are not only satisfied but also educated in the home buying process, she is dedicated to you and your family 100%, and her ethical/moral compass is always pointed in the direction of your happiness. Chan'Tiss is no longer just our realtor but a member of our family.

Manny and Jennifer Lozano

Daniel's Realty Elite was very professional and easy to work with.

They made sure that my concerns where a top priority during the entire home buying process. I would recommend their services to anyone who is looking to purchase a home and would like to have full situational awareness during the entire process. I will reuse them again for future home buying.

Michal Wanzer

Awesome job!

They demonstrated patience, very detailed in presentation of material associated to buying a home, and finally located the home to meet my needs.

Robin Reese

OMG, The Daniels are the greatest couple when it comes to making a home buyer comfortable.

They walked me and my husband carefully through the process and kept us updated daily if needed. We were truly bless with them to be the agents that were sent to us. I am going to referred them to everyone that we speak to that we know that are in the process of buying a home. When I say, you will be so please with the results you will be. Don't have anyone else to assist you, please go to Daniels Realty Elite for your home needs. I love them both for everything. Keep up the great and blessed work that you are doing. Vikki and Erik Columbus

Vikki & Erik McDonald

What an ABSOLUTE joy working with both Chan'Tiss and her husband Melvin from start to finish!

There was not one moment that we doubted their services or thought to go with some other realtor. Their passion in the work really shows because they too are a family and knows what it means to find not just a home that suited our needs, but our very first home. We really do see ourselves living the rest of our lives in our new home! We would recommend this family realty business to anyone who's looking for a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Thanks so much and we are forever grateful to have you not just as our realtor but as our friends!! Great TEAM!!!

Michelle & Herbert Lawrence

"Tiffany, you won me over because you not only cared about selling our home but you were also concerned about helping me to find another place to live.

You all are wonderful... ."

M. Mitchell


Gelzinis is a very knowledgeable and focused agent, that enjoys her profession. It was a pleasure to have her as my agent."

S. Robertson

"As a first-time homebuyer, I was so grateful to know that Tiffany always had my back and was so eager and able to help resolve any issues that my fiance and I faced along the way (particularly some last minute challenges we did not anticipate before getting to the closing table).

From my first interaction with her I knew that she was incredibly hardworking, knowledgeable, and attentive to the details! It's not often that you find someone so committed to having your back, particularly when making one of the biggest decisions of your life. Give her a call...you won't be disappointed!!"

J. Dominguez

"She was fabulous to work with when we bought our home.

She also listed our old home and sold it in less than one week. I have told all of my friends about her in case they plan to buy or sell."

L. Bertramsen

"Tiffany does it ALL!

Seriously. She's one of those 'above and beyond' individuals who does what it takes to get the job done, while always keeping the clients' best interests at heart. I have experience working with other agents up to this point, and have never met one quite like her. "My fiance and I just closed on our first home. We couldn't have done it without Tiffany's expertise! She helped us tackle every challenge that arose along the way, from some unexpected negotiations after home inspection to last minute ups and downs with our loan processing...what impressed me the most was her patience in addressing all our concerns immediately and eliminating stresses, coupled with her incredible stamina to problem-solve until we finally got to the closing table. She anticipated problems before they happened and expressed genuine care for us in the process. My fiance and I never once doubted that we were in good hands, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, or invest in real estate. Am so grateful to her. Thanks, Tiffany!!"

Caroline D.

"Tiffany was my agent during my searching and buying experience.

She is a great agent! Very diligent, helpful and knowledgeable. She truly works for your benefit. I would highly recommend her if you are in the market for buying or selling a home."

Travis B.

"Tiffany was awesome.

She was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I never met her in person and felt confident with her handling my real estate transaction during my absence. She always looked out for my best interest and provided me with sound and reasonable advice. I had a couple of other agents prior to Tiffany and none of them could match what she was able to offer me. The other agents were good, but they were unable to excel like her. She even had lots of contacts to assist with any speed bump that arose. She is the best, and I will definitely recommend and use her again."

Andrea J.

"Tiffany was great to work with.

She was prompt and professional through the sale of our home and purchase of a new home. She helped myself and my family get a great price for our home and she sold it in 4 days! I have recommended her to all my friends and family. If you need an agent who has your best interests at heart call Tiffany."

W. Wyndham

"Absolutely fantastic service.

We closed on our home within a short period of time and service after the sale was impeccable. I would highly recommend Tiffany for all real estate needs."

Richard M.

"Tiffany is well educated and a very knowledgeable Realtor and possesses a very strong work and business ethic.

Working with her was a pleasure, as she handled some very trying situations with ease, always managing to resolve problems to everyone's satisfaction. We would highly recommend her and would use her professional services again when we buy another house."

David C.

"As a first time home buyer, Tiffany was very helpful and patient in explaining the home buying process.

Tiffany's patience was also evident as she tirelessly helped me search for homes and was available to answer any question I may have. I recommend Tiffany's knowledge and expertise to anyone looking to buy a home."

Christina K.

"I highly recommend this agent!

! Tiffany sold a house for us under difficult circumstances in a very tough market. As a Military family going through some rapid changes, Tiffany was tasked with selling a home we owned less than two years, from which we needed to get more out of than we paid initially. Tiffany knew how to price the home and how to market it to get us what we required. After just one showing we received an offer. We subsequently entered into a contract to sell. After weeks of effective negotiating and skilled problem solving; our home was sold and closed on the date we first agreed to at exactly the amount she told us all along we could expect. A number of other homes for sale in the neighborhood never sold. Some owners gave up and resorted to renting out their property. (An option I feared we would be stuck with based on the trend in the neighborhood). I solely credit this dedicated agent for accomplishing the sale of our property, at a great price, while three other agents I interviewed could not. "If you have a real estate deal in your future, call Tiffany Gelzinis! She will navigate for you the complicated business of buying or selling your largest financial and emotional investment; your home!"

Leslie M.

"Everything from start to finish was as smooth as possible.

As a first time home buyer I had nothing to base off of except stories about how painful and tedious the process can be. Her knowledge of the immediate area was extensive as she herself lives near and is in touch with the community. Either trading emails at 6 am or texting at 9 pm any question were answered accurately and promptly. All steps were explained throughout but not simplified to the point I felt like I was being talked down to. Any and all updates were relayed to me in real time. I would recommend to anyone wanting to work with someone that does that little extra while being personable and professional."

C. L.

Our initial meeting offered an opportunity for Tiffany to look around my home and then listened to my ideas for the best outcome towards the sell.

She offered suggestions, I offered to comply with her suggestions, and we moved forward. Thirty years of living in my home was about to become the open door to potential buyers, showings and hopefully, the soon to come contract and closing. True to her professional biography, Tiffany Gelzinis fully demonstrates professional expertise and practical knowledge, earned through her education and experience in business management, marketing and as a Realtor. During the process of the sale of my home, there were a few twist and turns, but Tiffany was assertive and asked specific questions to her colleagues, obtained best practice responses, and explored any and all possible options for the seller’s experience to be with minimal stress, and towards a successful outcome. Tiffany is personable, focused, motivated, trustworthy, and dedicated to the conclusion of the matter, which is the four letter word, “SOLD”! Special appreciation to her family and professional team.

Vanessa Golson, P.h.D

Emma Ellis has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable with helping us sell our home.

She has made this process very easy for us the whole way through and we are very pleased with her professionalism, positive attitude and experience.

Mr & Mrs Kurtz, Home Seller Gloucester VA

Emma was very knowledgeable of the area and was very up to date doing everything electronically.

She was very quick to respond to email and text messages and was very helpful during the home buying process. She knows the ins and outs of real estate and has a very aggressive approach to making things work for you.

Mr & Mrs Stamas, Home Buyer Gloucester VA

My wife and I interviewed Ms.

Ellis for the sale of our home. Within 3 days of the interview, we decided to list with her. Following a rigorous advertisement campaign, the home had a full-asking price offer in (5) FIVE days! She made the whole process painless and was very patient with us as this was our first home to sell. She maximized our proceeds and refused to let anything stand in the way of the deal. She is truly a wonderful person to work with and I hope to be able to do business with again!

Mr & Mrs Ellis, Home Seller in Hampton, VA

Emma did an excellent job selling my house.

She priced it well, gave it extensive exposure, and listened to all of my concerns. She has also assisted me in finding a new home and has been very responsive to my needs.

Ms. Hendrickson, Home Seller in Mathews, & Home Buyer in Gloucester

We have been blessed to have Emma since last October.

Since day one she is available all the time and only once did we tell her our goals. From there she new exactly what we needed to sell our home, and in turn the first home she showed us for purchase....was exactly the home we ended up buying after looking at several more. Our family has been so blessed to have such a caring, kind professional that takes her job very serious and her clients are always treated with A+ service! I recommend Emma Ellis to all my family and friends.

Mr & Mrs S, Seller in Newport News & Buyer in Gloucester

"The best Realtor around!

I highly recommend her!!!"

Rachel M.

"Great person and meets your needs.

She is a rock star in my book!"

Asbjorn (Chris) is, simply put, the most professional and educated Agent I have worked with.

I have purchased 5 properties (homes and rental properties) with him. He is timely, attentive, honest and dedicated to his clients. I offer my highest recommendation. No matter your price range or intent, he's the Agent you want to work with.

D. Novotney

I live four hours away from Asbjorn, and was interested in buying a house in his area.

Needless to say I have bought two houses from him. Also sold the first one using his services. We found him to be very competent and thorough.

House Buyer / 1909 English Oak

Chris and Carrie are both family oriented and they provide quality service to their clients.

I have know them both since 2010 when I purchase my first home with through them.

House Buyer / 1909 English Oak

We loved working with Asbjorn Carlson!

He and his wife helped us out so much while we were house hunting from out of town. We looked at over 50 houses within a week. Battling old homes, non updated homes, complicated sellers, you name it be went through it! They were resilient with finding new home options and assisting with new areas to look into. He went above and beyond for our family to find the perfect home in a short amount of time. Highly recommend!!

House Buyer / 5001 Bellamy Manor Dr

Chris was absolutely wonderful, every step of the way!

We actually recommended Chris to a friend of ours and they were very pleased as well! We look forward to working with you again in just three years!

House Buyer / 3081 Bow Creek Blvd

Chris Carlson is definitely first class!

My wife and I started our home buying experience while I was overseas. We were referred to Chris by a friend who bought their house through him. The process was extremely streamlined and made simple for first time home buyers like my wife and I. From the listing that he updated daily for the houses that we were looking for, to the guidance and counsel that he provided, it was clear that he was more focused on our needs and what was best for our family rather than the sale. I will always appreciate Chris for making our home buying experience an awesome one! If and when we decide to buy another house,Chris will be the first call we make!

Townhome Buyer / 141 Post Oak Rd

Asbjorn Carlson very promptly scheduled all tours of houses on the market that I requested to see.

He was always available to show the houses when asked. He was very helpful with writing the contracts quickly to submit to the sellers. He is very respectful and professional. I highly recommend his services to anyone who is looking for real estate expertise and prompt assistance in buying or selling a home.

House Buyer / 4917 Whipaway Court

Very patient and helpful researched and took time for me as I needed will recommend to friends and family!

Townhome Buyer - 5272 Pirata Lane

Asbjorn Carlson is our first choice when we need to buy or sell real-estate.

He has been our buying and selling agent over the past 11 years. Our welfare is always his first priority. This last transaction, selling Cedar Bridge, he went above and beyond assisting us. We live two hours from the property and he handled everything; including stopping by the property regularly to be sure everything was ok.

J. Hyler

Todd did an excellent job of assisting me with my first home purchase.

We saw a lot of houses before settling on the perfect one. The process had its challenges, but he was there with advice all the way to closing. Thanks!

-Carolyn Black

"Dave is quite a character!

He has a very strong work ethic and a great personality but talks business. He went above and beyond for my husband and I as we were going back and forth on decisions on so many houses. He checked out houses for us even last minute drive bys, gave us very good insight, as well as taught us about the home buying process and what to look for. Dave is very kind with a great sense of humor and is very easy going. He knows the ins and out of the business and will not let you get stuck in a bad deal. He is truly one of the best realtors we have worked with and couldn't ask for more in an agent. "

-Ashlie DuRoss

Being first time homebuyers, we were a little lost.

We were referred to Randy by our Veterans United agent, Wendy. Randy made the whole process easy and understandable. Thanks, Randy!!

Kayleigh D.

It was great getting to know Randy during this process.

He's a great guy who genuinely enjoys helping people find homes. This was my first time buying a home and Randy did a great job getting me into my new house even with some unexpected challenges.

Greg Ylvisaker

Randy helped us find our forever home in Chesapeake last year, and I honestly can’t say enough about Randy.

His responsiveness is the BEST I have ever seen. If you are looking for an agent that will be there for you, this is your guy! You will never feel in the dark with him by your side.

He was always available for my many questions and was truly knowledgeable of the areas. He knew the right neighborhoods and was always honest in what he saw. He knew if it was a good buy or not, and would let us know. We have already recommended him to other friends and will recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. Randy is dedicated to his work and helping people with their homes and it really shows. Randy was an outstanding real estate agent. With him, our first-time house-hunting experience was fun and not intimidating

Randy was outstanding from day one. Once he had a idea of what we were looking for he was spot on with his showings. He had all the right contacts to make things happen right away.


Amy is one of the best realtors in Hampton Roads!

She does everything in her power to ensure her clients are 100 percent satisfied and they get what they want completely prior to closing day. I ha d recently bought a new construction home and Amy and she represented me very well! She helped me with flooring, roofing, paint colors, etc. There where many times where I had problems with the builder/seller and Amy stepped in and fixed all discrepancies in a expeditious manner. The house is great and anyone who chooses her as a Relator in the future is making a great choice!

Peter H.

Amy was a lifesaver in our home buying process.

We were looking to rent and found a home on her website, I sent an inquiry and she responded immediately. Even though we were very particular in the a rea we wanted to be in and rentals were slim to none, she continued to look without pressuring to purchase. Once we came to the realization that purchasing was going to be the way to go she seamlessly switched gears. She was very attentive to what we wanted and made time for us even after hours and on weekends. Amy made things simple, she handled so many things for us and kept us updated throughout the process. Her patience and calm demeanor made each showing less stressful. I also appreciated how she offered her opinion while walking through homes, I often found she had thought of something I hadn't, or found something I wouldn't have thought to look for. Overall, Amy Oliver was the best thing to happen to us during our entire moving process. She is professional, courteous, caring and thoughtful!

Cara B.

Availability was important and Amy made us feel as though we were her only client.

Amy was always available, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. She was always responsive and not pushy. She mad e this home purchase a great experience. This was a very positive experience from start to finish.

Wayne and Lisa

Amy Oliver is wonderful in every regard - a true full service, turn key Realtor that has your best interest in mind!

Listens to your concerns, takes time to give feed back and advice. Easy to work with, will not pressure or rush you. Overall great Realtor!

Dustin V.

Phil was patient with Kim & I.

We started the process of purchasing a home in Sept 2014. We finally purchased our home this past week (3/2017). Phil never made us feel like we were wasting his time. When he had not heard from us in while, he reached out in a way that was never pushy. I am sure he must have wondered if we were ever going to buy, but when the right place came along Phil was there from start to finish and helped us move quickly so that we were able to get the right house as the right price and interest rate. thanks Phil!

A. Modlin – Va Beach

Phil was so great to work with!

My husband and I just bought our first home with Phil's help! He answered any and all questions we had and kept us informed the whole time. He is very knowledgeable of Virginia Beach and it's very obvious he enjoys what he does. He saved us a bunch of money on the house and made this whole process fun and enjoyable! I absolutely recommend Phil! And if we ever rent out our first house he will be the first person we call for help and management! Thanks again Phil! It was so wonderful to work with you.
