We are NoVa Home Sellers

Welcome to the NoVa Home Sellers Website and Blog. In this age of impersonalization, we pride ourselves on high-touch, personal service, while also leveraging the best technology to deliver an optimal experience to our Seller and Buyer clients.

Selling your home in Northern Virginia

Our approach to working with Sellers and listing homes is centered on the Four P’s: Preparation, Pricing, Presentation, and Promotion. It is only when each of these four pillars are executed in an intentional and detailed manner that Sellers realize the highest price for their home.

Buying your home in Northern Virginia

Our approach to working with Buyers is equally as precise. We leave no stone unturned and execute detailed searches using our Clients’ specific criteria, for both resale homes and new construction, if desired.

Karen Broussard

Karen Broussard and Shelley Horneck each have 30 years of experience in business and marketing. They both made career switches into real estate because of their love of working one-on-one with clients and because of their passion for northern Virginia and its unparalleled range of attractive communities and neighborhoods. Because they share a common background and client-focused philosophy, they provide support for each other and their clients whenever needed, although they work individually with their own clientele.

Karen and Shelley both pride themselves on delivering “white glove service” in an age of impersonalization. When you work with Karen or Shelley, they will be the ones answering your calls, negotiating on your behalf, and ensuring all details are attended to for a smooth transaction from start to finish. Their comprehensive service often begins well before your home hits the market … and continues well after your transaction closes. They are happy to provide advice, support, and access to trusted contractors. They take ownership in each and every transaction, never passing you along to someone on a “team.” That’s because they feel that you, your needs, and transactions of this nature are too important to delegate. 

Karen and Shelley are always just a phone call, email, or text away and take communication and follow up seriously. They will educate you about the details of your transaction and hold your hand through every important step of the process. They’ve even been told they make it fun! Their goal is to set your mind at ease and reduce stress … while getting you optimal results so that you recommend their services to your friends, family, and neighbors. Referrals are the ultimate compliment, and Karen and Shelley look forward to taking care of anyone you point in their direction.

The cutting-edge tools available through Keller Williams will help your home get noticed.

Consulting on Home Selling Tactics

Buyers looking at your home may have a hard time visualizing how they will make it fit their own unique taste.

Karen and Shelley can help you overcome this common hurdle by offering complimentary consulting on staging, minor “freshening” improvements like painting, and prioritizing which repairs to tackle (and which to forgo).

They even have an extensive network of contractors and resources that are professional, reliable, and reasonably priced. Many of these have been personally used by either Karen or Shelley over the years.

Finding Your Northern Virginia Dream Home

Does New Construction Make Sense?

Karen and Shelley can even work with you to find new construction options, if working with one of the many reputable builders in this area appeals to you. After all, when looking for a home, you’ll want to know which design and structural elements make sense to spend extra for — and which aren’t always a good investment.  Karen and Shelley will be by your side all the way from visiting homes to the final closing. 

Karen and Shelley are always there for you...

Best of all, they can offer valuable advice even after you’re in your home, giving you recommendations for sports leagues for your kids, finding a place of worship for your family, or hiring reliable contractors to make your new house a true home.
