" Mason did a great job selling our house in a tough “buyer’s market.” In our sale, “crunch time” occurred after the contract was signed, and before closing. Mason pulled out all the stops, at just the right time to make sure our deal stayed on track to a timely close, on terms that everyone could live with. In our case, ironing out post ratification wrinkles required good judgment and timely access to a wide variety resources and experience only available at a large and seasoned firm like McEnearney. In the end, everything was pulled together like clockwork, and we were convinced that we had chosen the right listing agent.”"
" Mason Bavin drives results! What we anticipated to be a three-plus month process to find the perfect house, ended up being just six weeks! We’re now settled and loving our home in a terrific neighborhood and community where we never imagined possible. Mason was incredibly responsive. From the first e-mail right through the closing, Mason listened and paid attention to our needs and desires, then responded with excellent coaching as we visited listed homes. She did such a great job preparing us for house-hunting and purchasing that we found our home in just one weekend. Mason also has a good real estate network of colleagues and service providers who met and exceeded our expectations as they effortlessly guided us through lending, the offer, a title, the closing, and services set-up for our move-in. We hope it is obvious that we highly recommend Mason Bavin for your real estate needs and investment. She is top-notch!"

" I had wonderful experience working with Mason. She was knowledgeable and patient answering all my questions about relocating to the Fairfax area. Mason always went the extra mile to help me find the right house and location for my family."
" We could not be more pleased with the kind, thoughtful and expertly professional manner of both buying and selling a home with Mason. She is an absolute gem! "
– John & Claire
" Mason knows the local market well and goes beyond the call of duty in helping to find or sell a home. Our experience was met beyond expectation even in these uncertain times. Mason makes you feel as if you are her only client and makes the transactions easy and understandable." If you are thinking Real Estate think Mason.....your only choice for bringing together exceptional properties for exceptional people.

" We looked at both rental and purchase options with Mason. She was very professional and prepared to help us search for both property types. Her knowledge of the area is amazing and made our search easier. She also gave us several recommendations for a mortgage lender which was a big help. We definitely recommend Mason! "
– Linda & Bruce
" Mason Bavin is our agent -- she's very sweet, easy to work with, and she's a third (or more?) generation Old Towner and knows everyone and everything in Alexandria. She's very organized, does everything in a timely fashion, scans and emails documents to you immediately after they're finalized, and works her schedule to accommodate yours. I would recommend her highly."
" Mason was incredibly helpful to us. We were completely new to the area and she helped to orient us and to identify a good location for our needs. She was sensitive to what we liked and to our concerns and was very patient. We couldn’t recommend her more highly! "
– Rebecca & Richard
" Recently, we found out we were moving to the northern Virginia area for the third time and knew from past experience we wanted to live in Old Town Alexandria. After asking friends for recommendations on a Realtor, we were introduced to the wonderful Mason Bavin. We were stationed overseas at the time and were able to work with her long distance and she was prepared to show us properties as soon as we arrived. Mason assessed our needs and adapted her search of homes for us, showing all that was available for purchase or rent, asking and answering many, many questions. When our job situation changed and it was necessary for us to rent, nothing in Mason's level of service changed. We still received her undivided attention, professional courtesy, and full support in finding a rental home. We had to leave the area for a short time and she followed up with us daily, finding the perfect rental through her vast network of contacts, in the exact location we wanted, handling the process over the phone, Internet and through the mail. We were able to move into our Old Town home and settle in with full faith and confidence that it was the right decision because Mason took the time to get to know us and our desires for what we needed in our home. A few weeks ago we had family who were house hunting in Maryland and having a difficult time. When they asked how to find a trustworthy Realtor, we thought of Mason. One phone call to her and in no time at all, we had the name of a wonderful Realtor who was licensed in Maryland and who turned out to be of great help. Again, Mason was there when we needed her, even when it would be of no financial gain to her. Mason Bavin is that special person you can develop a relationship with and she will go above and beyond to help her clients, no matter the situation."

" Mason & Pat,
Thank you for the way you took us in and so effortlessly helped us find such a fantastic house. We really feel like we have found our home. We are incredibly impressed! "
– Ivy & Anthony
" I was Mason's first client and, from the start, was impressed with her people skills and organization. She knows the trends and demographics of our area. She will go the extra mile for you and be there from the start to the end. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others (and have!)."
" Mason was wonderful. She was very patient and forever optimistic. She made a first-time buying experience go smoothly. She was always reliable and very responsive to e-mails, phone calls, etc. We worked with several realtors in the past and said to ourselves that we are going to McEnearney Associates next! They did not disappoint and we will work with McEnearney Associates and Mason again when we sell, if we ever do. We will recommend both McEnearney Associates and Mason to all of our friends. "
– Robert & Anna
" Mason's professionalism, organization, attention to detail, and warm, personable manner make doing business with her a pleasure."
" Mason exceeded our expectations in terms of time spent to look at homes. She had a good sense of what we were looking for after a couple of home visits. Following her advice helped us find and purchase a home within 30 days- can’t beat that service! "
– Maria & Dean
" My husband and I were looking to move to Old Town Alexandria, but were not very unfamiliar with the area. Lucky for us, Mason Bavin at McEnearney Associates became our real estate agent. Mason not only educated us on Old Town, but found us a fabulous property. Mason is the consummate professional, very knowledgeable, patient, friendly, accommodating, and honest. Working with Mason was an extremely positive experience, and a buyer/renter will be very fortunate to have the opportunity to be represented by Mason. "
We cannot thank you enough for all of your help with both house hunting and house-selling earlier this year. Your patience and guidance was a great comfort to us as we navigated the various challenges of the real estate process. It was great to know that you were always there to look out for us every step of the way and ready to do what was needed to get our house sold and us into our new dream home. We appreciate all of your help, patience and guidance. We are so thrilled with our new house, and we appreciate everything you did to help make that a reality for us!
– Ryan & Whitney
" I really enjoyed working with you. Your involvement with the process is, in my opinion, perfect. I wish all of my agents treated the process the way you do. Please think of me again when you need a good, friendly banker. Cheers. "
– Alec, Lender
" We cannot recommend Mason more highly. Her professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail were impeccable. She worked with us diligently, and thoroughly to make sure that we felt comfortable with each step of the process from listing, staging, showing and then through the contract negotiations. We couldn't be happier with the result as we had a fantastic contract within 3 days of listing in a tough real estate market! "

" Pat made the entire process from open house to closing a relatively painless experience and we thank her for her help! We would absolutely recommend her services to anyone searching for a house in the Alexandria area!"
" Pat was available to help coordinate work on my home to prepare it for sale after I had moved away from the area to start my new job. Once the house was ready for sale, she sold it quickly and achieved a premium price, far exceeding my expectations. Pat was great to work with and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!"
We want to thank you for the truly outstanding job you did in selling our home. Every step in the process was well thought out and thorough. You explained everything to us in terms that were most understandable and there were never any surprises along the way!
Pat was always available to meet with us, day or night. She made us feel like we were her first priority! When it comes time to sell our home we will not hesitate to call Pat. We are confident that she will make the process a breeze.
Pat Day is without question the only person in Old Town that I would ever sell property with! She knows and thoroughly understands the field and makes the entire process seem as effortless as a casual evening out. Truly an exceptional professional without equal!
Since my husband and I were from Rhode Island, our time was limited and Pat was aware of this and gave us an extreme amount of her time and attention. She was always professional and went out of her way to meet our individual needs. I would strongly recommend her as a truly talented agent.
You are a professional in every sense of the word and you are the only realtor we would ever use in this area and recommend to others, which you can be sure we will do.
" Pat is intelligent and quick to act on all real estate business."
" Pat has personal integrity and moral courage of the highest sort. "
Thank you very much for everything you’ve done to help our family. We love working with you and are lucky to count you as a friend. Thank you, too, to Mason and George. You all are an amazing team. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you for your help, expertise, advice and friendship in the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. With two small children, a new job for Bob among other things, your calming, organized manner made a very stressful time easy and fun.
" We have selected Pat as our agent for every house that we have bought or sold. She has become not only a trusted agent but also a valued friend. We knew she would continue to do an outstanding job in representing us in both the buying and selling transactions. We would recommend Pat Day to anyone.
Pat did several things which led to the sale of our home in just a matter of days. She helped us make some small changes to our décor including the loan of accessories from her own home. She prepared a beautiful brochure which emphasized the obvious, as well as the not so obvious attributes of our home. She hosted a broker luncheon for more than 60 agents which got the word out quickly. But most importantly, she helped us set a realistic sales price based on her experience and up to date knowledge of the local market conditions.
Once our home was sold, Pat was able to work easily with our company relocation service as well as the buyers’ broker. She helped us with all of the deadlines and paperwork and kept us informed throughout the process.
" Dear Pat,
We would like to thank you for your unmatched skill in negotiating the sale of our home.
Despite the current turbulent nature of the real estate market, your superior service and extensive experience made what could have been a difficult and angst-ridden process, very comfortable and easy. Throughout the various states of the sale, we were able to fully trust in and rely on our professionalism, experience, honesty and finesse.
As busy professionals, we understand the importance of being able to rely on the right people to act in our best interest. Knowing that you were expertly managing all the details of our home sale allowed us the freedom to focus more energy on all the other demanding aspects of our move. And yet, we always felt informed, prepared and in control throughout the process with your timely and concise reports. Again thank you for shouldering the stress and passing along to us only the information necessary for us to make the best possible decisions.
The strength and cleanliness of the multiple contracts we received are a testament to your skills in marketing, staging, pricing, and negotiating. And of course we were thrilled with the escalation addendum!
" Both Mason and Pat gave me some excellent advice to market my home and were both wonderful with all aspects of communication. "
" Mason continuously considered my “wants” in a home until I found something in my price range that I liked. She had my needs and more importantly my interests in mind. She made buying a home in Virginia easy by explaining all of the new areas of Virginia law without reservation. "
" Pat Day & Mason Bavin are great! They always go the extra mile in marketing and get their home listings sold quickly. We had an excellent experience with them in selling our home in Alexandria, VA., this past spring. Not only do they have many years of successful experience in representing clients and in home buying and selling, they also make very constructive and gentle suggestions for simple changes in decorating that will make your home much more appealing to buyers. They are professional, reliable, friendly and comforting. Pat has helped us buy and sell homes around Alexandria for the past 20 years and Mason is an Alexandria native and experienced agent. They will tell you the hard facts but they are always positive in their motivation! "
