What a whirlwind this last week has been for us. We are very excited about finding our new home in Virginia so quickly. We have no doubts about it at all! Thank you for all your help! We appreciate your sensitivity to our unique wishes/needs, answering all our questions, listening well and advice given nicely. I am glad we will be neighbors in Stafford!

Our agent, Claudia Crone, has done a superb job at helping us in locating just the right house. We are so thankful.
We were unsure who to trust to lead us in the process of buyng a home for the first time but when we met Claudia all those uncertainties belonged in the past. She was very patient with us. Claudia was available all the time including weekends to go house hunting with us. She did not only inform us about availabilties but also she educated us about the possible best options. Because of her, we are proud new homeowners of a four bedroom house bought at a very competitive price. We cannot thank her enough for all she has done and her professionalism. Thank you again, Claudia Crone of Coldwell Banker.
Seth and Caroline
I want to thank you for everything. I believe I am home. I know I am home. You were great to work with and became a good friend. I will spread your name to anyone who is buying or selling. Again, thanks for a wonderful experience. I must say this was the best home experience I have had!
Last month I bought my first home with the assistance of realtor Claudia Crone. Claudia started working with me a very long time ago and hung in there with me over a year, even after our buyer's rep contract expired in August, 2007.
I am admittedly an exceedingly conservative shopper, a severe researcher, a definite bargain hunter, and do nothing in a hurry. With the prior housing boom putting desirable properties far out of my financial reach, it took a long time for the market to come back to some degree of reasonableness. I commend Claudia for her patience.
I started my home-buying search in earnest spring of 2006 with a Keller Williams agent. That relationship ended December 2006. I went through two other agents very quickly (Dec. 2006-Jan. 2007) before coming to Claudia. She was recommended to me by my then mortgage broker at Lending Tree (Jonathan Cote). I asked for a mature, knowledgeable person who exhibited professionalism and knew Prince William County.
These qualities are indeed manifest in Claudia. She maintained that professionalism throughout our house shopping journey. She was always available, responded to my queries immediately, always in touch, made several sound recommendations before and after I settled on the house I now own, has a large network of referrals for various services, didn't push me too much, knew when to stop pushing when I pushed back (smile), respected my bidding strategies, and presented all my offers whether she agreed with the pricing or not.
What I require foremost in all relationships (professional and personal) is respect. Claudia has always respected me, from day 1 until the present.
I truly love my new home, even though it is still hard to believe I actually own it! I thank Claudia for helping me find and negotiate its purchase.
Elizabeth, Dumfries, Virginia.
My wife and I began looking for a home last summer. My wife was more ready than I was, but I went along with it just in case I saw something I liked. We contacted Claudia and right away she was emailing us different homes to look over and ready to take us out to view some. After seeing the houses we picked out I still wasn't ready to make a leap into homeownership. We told Claudia and she was more sympathetic to how I felt and only asked that we keep her in mind when we felt we were ready again. Then in February, after looking over our finances I felt I was comfortable in buying a house. I had my wife call Claudia and she was more than ready to help us start looking again. She had chosen five homes for us to look at based on what we said we were lookng for. The first house we looked at was Claudia's favorite and in the end it turned out to be ours as well.
The property was a foreclosure and the bank selling the home took their sweet time not only accepting our offer, but setting everything in motion to close the sale. Because it was taking so long to close my wife kept worrying, but luckily for me Claudia was more than eager to take calls from my wife almost everyday and assure her that everything was fine and we'd be in our new home sooner than she'd think. We've been in our home two weeks now and we haven't had a hint of buyer's remorse. I attribute that to the time Claudia put into finding a home with everything we were looking for and for that I am very thankful.

Having previously served in the U.S. military, I have lived in 8 different locations over the past 12 years. Each move provided the opportunity to work with realtors from various agencies. These experiences, some good others not so, proved to me that one realtor stands on a pedestal above them all, "Claudia Crone."
Punctuality, superb customer service and attention to details are just a few of the many attributes Claudia possesses. If my wife and I wanted to view a house on the weekend, weekday, early in the morning or late in the evening, she took care of us. If we had questions, comments or concerns we knew a call or e-mail would be quickly answered. From the start all the way up through closing, Claudia was there!
My wife and I would recommend Claudia to anyone needing a house. Because of her actions, our home buying experience was not only more enjoyable, we were finding ourselves on numerous occasions saying, "Thank goodness we have Claudia!!!"Daniel & Asli Stafford, Virginia _______________________________________________________________________
Claudia was our realtor, and now she is our friend. When we first consulted Claudia our 30 year old house had been on the market for over two months with only one disinterested person having looked at it. Within three weeks of working with Claudia we had nine interested clients, two contracts and a sale. That was remarkable for July 2007.
She was professional, pleasant, and extremely hard working. Claudia´s marketing skills were invaluable. She had incredible photos in the listing which was placed in multiple publications, and without hesitation she had other realtors viewing our property. Most importantly Claudia always kept us informed and confident. Claudia is a genuinely good person who was interested in our personal circumstance. We were very fortunate to have met Claudia and worked with her on a professional level as well as personal. Thank you Claudia, you are a credit to Coldwell Banker and your industry. Everyone should have you for a realtor and a friend.
Jeanne & Gene
I am a single mother of 3 children. To tell you that I was scared when I began my venture would be an understatement. I met Claudia Crone just by chance one day as I was out looking around the Stafford area. I was attracted to this area because of the school system. She was extremely friendly. I was not sure that I wanted or needed an Agent (inexperience, as you can tell.) Claudia asked me to allow her to help me and when I finally agreed, Claudia displayed professionalism, knowledge of the area, patience and kindness. Most of all, she really cared about me and my family. She kept in constant contact with me letting me know what would happen next, and when it seemed I had not talked to her in a few days, she would just call to say "hi" and ask how my children were.
There are many Real Estate Agents and Companies... one on every block; but Claudia sets herself apart from everyone else. She made my experience so much better. I will tell my friends that she was my Realtor because I know that the best compliment you can give a person is a "recommendation", and SHE HAS MINE ALL THE WAY!
Thank you and I am so glad that I met Claudia and had an opportunity to work with her and your company!
My husband and I recently listed and sold our home in Park Ridge subdivision through your company. Our Realtor was Claudia Crone. Prior to Claudia working with us, I had listed the house with another company/agent who paled considerably in comparison to Claudia. The house had been on the market for 6 months with little traffic. Claudia did an exceptional job informing us of her marketing efforts, keeping us apprised of the comparative sales in the area, guiding us to show case the house appropriately, checking on the house, etc., and went the extra mile to meet the repairmen prior to the closing.
Her support was greatly needed and sincerely appreciated given that my husband deployed to Iraq and I live and work in DC. Because of her astounding professionalism, expertise, and dedication to her customer(s), the house sold quickly eliciting remarkable praises from our neighbors. As such, many of the neighbors will use and recommend Coldwell Banker Elite services in the future.
Please recognize Claudia's superior performance and convey our appreciation again to her.
We could not have gone through the home selling process without you! You were wonderful, Claudia. I greatly appreciate your helpful advice and continuous support throughout the entire process. You were always available to offer help and answer questions. You do an outstanding job helping your clients sell their home! Thank you for everything!
Bonnie and Stewart
My wife and I recently bought a home in Stafford, Virginia and our experience was very pleasant because of our realtor, Claudia Crone.
She answered all of our questions and if she did not know the answer she quickly researched it for us.
From the first day we saw our home until the closing, Claudia was with us every step of the way.
If anyone needs to buy or sell a home, we would highly recommend they contact Claudia Crone of Coldwell Banker.
Terry and Rhonda
The process of buying a new home is difficult in the best of circumstances. However, when the process is done from half a country away, at times, it can seem nearly impossible. Unless, that is, you have located an exceptional Realtor. We did. Claudia, you took the time to listen to what we desired and required and went the extra mile to find our home and for that we thank you. The special trips to various homes, the many photos you sent and your availability made us feel that we were very special and important clients. We very much appreciate not only all you did to find our home but also the assistance you provided in our absence. Your thorough knowledge of the area as well as your enthusiasm and delightful spirit truly made this a great experience. We will certainly without reservation recommend you to anyone in need.
Jeff and Kelly
I just wanted you to know that Claudia Crone is a very good and dedicated Realtor for Coldwell Banker. Claudia dedicated herself and her time and her expert knowledge and we benefited completely from that. We completely trusted Claudia and she helped up through the financing and all phases of home buying. I have bought several homes in the past and I have never had this level of service before so I would like to thank Coldwell Banker and Claudia Crone. I know that 10 percent of the realtors sell ninety percent of the properties available and I am sure that she fits in that percentage.
Claudia did not know that my brother-in-law is a realtor in Stafford but after working with her for 2 days I felt that I would be better served working with Claudia than my own family member. There is not much more I could say about her that you do not already know. We are extremely happy with the home we purchased and I will definitely hire Claudia and Coldwell Banker in the future for any real estate transactions.
Mark and Tasha
My wife and I recently purchased a home with the assistance of Claudia Crone. To put it simply, she was amazing. As a professional home builder, I deal with realtors on a daily basis. With this being said, Claudia is one of the best in Virginia. She is thoughtful, considerate, and respectful. Claudia is wonderful at knowing when to offer advice and when to back off and let the home speak for itself.
Throughout the home buying experience, Claudia was always there to help out. From looking at homes to putting in the contract, Claudia was informed, professional, and courteous. Once the contract was accepted, she continued to check in to monitor the situation. From the initial walk through of the home to final settlement, Claudia was there. She is fantastic and we enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Claudia has been our agent since the fall of 2004. She has always provided us with the upmost professionalism, dedication and hard work anyone could ask for. She has not only assisted us in the purchase of a beautiful dream home but she also helped us with a rental property and the recent sale of a house. On all three occasions we have been extremely happy and fortunate to have an agent like Claudia by our side.
Claudia is not only pleasant, professional and detail orientated. She also provided us with sound judgment, knowledge and advice in the real estate market. These three things are priceless when dealing in such a competitive and sometimes risky environment. She has always been expeditious and thorough in answering any questions or concerns we may have had.
Without hesitation and with total confidence, we would recommend Claudia to any of our friends, family, neighbors or anyone looking for assistance in the real estate market. It has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with Claudia. With no doubt she has made our experience very positive and rewarding.
Rob & Salima Stevens
Claudia did an outstanding job selling our home. She was very patient and went above and beyond the entire time the house was on the market.
In a letter written to Claudia from another real estate agent she conducted a transaction with, the agent writes...
"I would like to personally extend my appreciation for the professional way in which you conducted business during the sale of my listing. Our entire team here would like to thank you for making this sale a friendly and enjoyable experience. It is a pleasure to work with professionals like you, and I sincerely look forward to working with you again in the future!"
Claudia was amazing!!! She went above and beyond! She took care of everything. Having moved quite a bit in the military, we've never encountered a real estate experience as wonderful and pleasant as the one we had with Claudia!
Clay and Jennifer
My experience with Claudia was outstanding!! She went well above and beyond to sell our home, and yes, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the area! I wish I could say more than "Thank You" to Claudia... She did a great job for me!
When asked if Coldwell Banker Elite needed to make any improvements, Tom replied "no", as long as all of the Coldwell Banker agents treat their customers as well as Claudia treated me!
When we purchased our house, I was in Germany and my wife was here. Claudia went above and beyond to make sure we saw--and ultimately bought--the perfect house. Her daily emails and home listings were invaluable in finding the right house. Her knowledge of the market and her ability to communicate answers to questions I had, at a level I could understand, was the key in knowing what I was questioning or needed clarification about. Although I have never actually met her, I feel like she is a good firiend, and she is definitely on my Christmas card list. I have already suggested her to several co-workers coming to Fort Belvoir; they need to give her a call if they really want a realtor who cares and is warm and courteous, not to mention who has the foresight to find what you are looking for before you even know what you are looking for. Claudia is a priceless member of the Coldwell Banker Elite team.
With a big smile and great appreciation...

This past Friday we closed on the sale of our home in Spotsylvania. We wanted to let you know just how wonderful our agent was throughout the entire process. Claudia Crone, from the very first time we met her, was truly exceptional in every way! She was informative, thorough, cheerful and a true delight. Her knowledge of the market and her desire to understand our wants/wishes made the whole process enjoyable. I trust you are as proud of her as we are. We will definitely recommend Coldwell Banker Elite and specifically, Claudia!
Phil and Sandra
My husband and I were thrilled with the personal, professional service Claudia provided us, both in the sale of our old home and the purchase of the land on which to build our new one. She continually worked with us to ensure that our house was competitive in the market, and recommended actions that would increase it's marketability. She was very personable and yet always professional. We never doubted that she always had our best interest in mind. We fully intend to utilize her expertise when we make our next land purchase or sell our current home. We highly recommend her services.
Rachel and Michael
My experience with Claudia was nothing less than outstanding!
Marty (Client of Claudia's in home-selling process)
Claudia was Great!!! As a first-time home buyer, I really felt it was an advantage to me to have her as a realtor. She made me feel comfortable, and she went out of her way for me by explaining the process in detail. She was great, and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home!!!
Reuben, First-Time Homebuyer
Claudia Crone is a very professional and personal Realtor. Her dedication, perseverance and personality are obvious in her sell.
We had lived in our home for 15 years with 4 children, many pets, and the children´s friends in and out a lot; we even had an occasional boarder. 15 years equaled 52 children's birthday parties, tons of sleepovers, raking and jumping in leaves, building snowmen, pool parties, cookouts and horseshoe games. We had 15 Halloweens with trick-or-treaters that came to the house that had spooky music, spider webs, and a coffin in the front yard. And we can't forget the 15 Christmases with all of the relatives, presents, turkeys, and Santas.
Claudia helped us turn our "home" into a "house for sale". With her courteous advice, she allowed us to pack our memories, paint the walls, carpet the floors, and suddenly, the house was on the market. She walked us through the paperwork, gave sound advice, took beautiful pictures, and listed our home on the web and other marketing media. But Claudia didn't stop there. Her dedication continued even when we turned down a couple of contracts. Claudia wanted us to get the best possible contract we could, and she worked hard to get it.
We are now unpacked and settled in our new home in the country and truly appreciate all of the professional and personal work Claudia Crone put into selling our Vista Woods home.
Thank you, Claudia! I would recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home!!!

Claudia was fantastic from the onset. She was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the buying process. She made my first-time purchasing experience smooth and effortless. Thank you, Claudia!!!
Mark, First-Time Homebuyer
My wife and I met Claudia after an extensive internet search from out of state and previewing the area ourselves. We realized we would need help and were extremely lucky to meet Claudia. Her extensive knowledge of the area and 100% commitment to our needs and specific requirements made the buying process as smooth as possible. A true professional who goes the extra mile without being asked to. Claudia went well beyond what could be expected of her in every regard including shepherding us through a very difficult closing. We have personally recommended her to anyone and everyone we know either selling or buying a home in the area and would not consider asking anyone else to represent us when or if we need to sell our current home.
Rhett and Stephanie
Claudia sold our home in Stafford County, Virginia, when no other homes in our neighborhood were moving. She has the ability to make you feel as if you are her only client. She is very professional and knows the real estate market. Claudia kept my best interest in mind throughout the entire process. She goes the extra mile to make the transaction of real estate easy and much less stressful. She is an awesome person as well as a superior real estate agent. I would buy or sell another home with her in a minute!

Some time ago a good friend of mine kept raving on and on about Claudia and what a wonderful job she did for them at selling their home. It seemed as if every time I spoke to them that they were bringing up Claudia's name. I guess that just always stuck in my head because when the time came for me to put my own house on the market, I remembered her name and figured I may as well give her a try too.
Well, wonderful does not begin to describe this woman! The very same day I contacted her she came out to my house. She took pictures and produced a beautiful color brochure immediately. We listed it with in 48 hours. She put ads on several different websites and large color advertisements in the newspaper. Claudia is clearly a go-getter and gets the job done right. She is honest and will give you many suggestions as to things you can do to help your house sell but doesn't overwhelm you either. She is friendly and very approachable and makes you feel like she is your friend who just happens to be selling your home.
Only a short time after my house was listed my mother was in a very serious accident which made it impossible for me to cope with trying to sell my home at that time. Claudia's sympathy and understanding was over the top. Any other agent would have only been concerned with how soon they could sell the house and be paid their commission....not Claudia. She immediately pulled the house from the market and told me not to even think about it until I was ready.
A month later, when things in my life became more manageable, Claudia re-listed the house and had a buyer within two weeks. I moved to Michigan before the closing, and Claudia handled ALL of the little details that went along with getting that house closed. She hired painters, got quotes from power wash companies, lined up everything that needed to be done, and even served as my power of attorney at closing. This woman is an outstanding realtor and will go way beyond the expected role of her position to ensure that you have a pleasant and stress-free experience selling your home. Coldwell Banker must be very proud to have her on their team!
