"Doreen is AMAZING!!! She works tirelessly to coordinate and finalize everything!! She listed and sold our home, at full asking price, in 11 days!!!! Doreen's marketing techniques, minor suggestions on improving the curb and home appeal, to explaing every detail along the way, was refreshing!! If you need a realtor, CALL DOREEN!! She will sell your house FAST or find the perfect home for you!!!"
- Steve and Vickie Whiteman

- Carlos Duran
“Doreen! The Mrs. and I can't thank you enough! For those looking for an outstanding agent who goes the extra mile for her clients, stop! You've found her. We didn't know Doreen coming into our transaction, but are leaving with a great house and a new professional friend. There are 5 P's in my mind when it comes to picking a Realtor. Doreen gets 5 stars in all! Personable - Doreen is very approachable and shared the journey with us all the way to closing. Professional - As a retired Marine Officer, she was no stranger to the art of being a professional and it showed in her professional network, knowledge, and attention to detail throughout the process. Protection - Any good Realtor works for a strong and reputable broker. Coldwell Banker treated us well and had our back when we needed it. Punctual - Doreen was never late and had a healthy respect for our time throughout the process. Personal Communication - Doreen was fast to keep us updated and answered our questions along the way. All in all, Doreen is very deserving of this 5-star review. As someone who has bought and sold houses as both an agent and a homeowner, I have a healthy perspective on the good and the bad. Doreen was great! I will refer friends and family to her in the future with my highest regards. Thanks Doreen!”
- Adam Best
“Doreen, is always a pleasure to work with. She takes the time to make the stressful situation of buying or selling a home a wonderful experience. Selling a home with Doreen as our agent while living in Hawaii, could have been a nerve racking situation. However, she took charge of the sale and coordinated everything making it very simple for us. If we ever move back to Northern VA we will only use Doreen. She has become family and a life long friend to us!”
- Mario Heikell
“If I had to sum up our experience with Doreen into one word it would be Amazing. She has been amazing through out our whole home buying experience. She has offer use help in any and every possible way that we needed it. We love her and consider her family at this point. She is the best at what she does.”
- Chris Oinekomon and Carmen Smith
“Doreen was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her professionalism and attention to detail was beyond compare. She provided a comfortable environment throughout the entire buying process, which allowed my Fiancé and I the ability to focus on the home and not the house. Thank you Doreen!”
- Christopher Maser
"As a first time homebuyer, I was definitely intimidated by the whole home buying process; but once Doreen was on my side, all of those fears dissipated. She's extremely knowledgeable and made the whole process more streamlined. Any time I had questions or was unsure of something, a text or email to her would be answered immediately. I can't imagine my experience being any better than it already has with Doreen. Simply amazing! Thank you!"
- Carmen Smith
“Doreen was recommended to us by a friend and calling her was the best decision my wife and I could have made. She is without a doubt the best agent in the northern Virginia area. She was extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of homeownership, conducted a comprehensive walk-through of our home, and spent a considerable amount of time providing us with detailed explanations and sound advise on selling our home. Doreen provided us with a short list of reasonable recommendations to sell our home in a short amount of time and at the right price. We did what she recommended and the result was way beyond our expectations. We ended up having two very strong offers within a day of listing. Doreen is an absolute pleasure to work with! She is friendly, responsive, sincere, and a true professional. I am so happy that we had the pleasure to meet her and work with her. If we ever move back to northern Virginia, she is the only agent I will work with!”
- Royce Zant
“Me and my spouse flew in from out of town on a short time frame to house hunt, Doreen Boggs was recommended to us from a friend. We weren't sure what to expect since we gave her a short amount of time to work with. She had shown us numerous houses in which ultimately we weren't 100% satisfied with. Doreen listened to our concerns and knew we hadn't come across anything we were completely happy with. She went above and beyond to use her resources to find us a house that was not quite on the market yet but wanted to make sure we had seen as many options as possible in our short time period. Well she sure didn't let us down, that house ended up being exactly what we were looking for! We are extremely happy with our house and very thankful to Doreen for finding it for us! Doreen Boggs was a pleasure to work with! We would highly recommend using her. She made us feel very comfortable from the start! Very knowledgable of the area and she does well guiding you to what you are looking for. She was very prompt with her responses, we never waited very long to receive a follow-up from her. She is very professional and easy to talk to.”
- Denise Myers
“Doreen Boggs was a pleasure to work with. She provided excellent advice throughout the process and was followed through with great communication and clear expectations. This really helped our family with our big move and keeping all of the tasks on track to ensure a smooth closing. I would eagerly recommend her to anyone needing an agent and she would be the first realtor I call if needed in Virginia.
“Doreen Boggs is a consummate professional. She was recommended by a friend who had an incredible experience selling his home with her. Doreen immediately impressed me with her diligent response to all correspondence; it was evident that she would hustle to sell my property at the price and in the timeframe I desired. Her positive and friendly demeanor was infectious and displayed confidence in her competence. As an added bonus, Doreen is a retired United States Marine and clearly understands the needs and demands of service members making a transition. Of the three total homes that I bought and sold, this was above and beyond my best experience. She has my highest recommendation.”
- Josh and Erin
“Like others who have written reviews for Doreen I cannot recommend her enough. Some of the words I would use to describe Doreen are the following:
1. Prompt. Doreen respected my time as much as she does her own. She was never late to an appointment and never failed to find out the "status" of a home before she showed it. I have heard from others of agents showing homes that their client fell in love with that were already under contract. Doreen did her homework.
2. Straight Forward - After getting a feel for what we were looking for in a house when asked Doreen gave an honest assessment of a property we were considering. As a Realtor she is paid on commission so she could have bypassed or downplayed the "cons" but did not. Her candor was refreshing and further convinced us she had our interest at hearts which at the end of the day was important to me.
3. Professional - As a retired Marine Officer with several years of experience as a Realtor you get with Doreen what you would expect from someone with her background. She certainly has a "fun" side but when it comes to negotiations etc you will be glad you choose her to represent you.
In closing you can hope for a "good" Real Estate experience or you can guarantee a great one by picking Doreen. You won't be disappointed.”
- Tanner and Traci
“Doreen is phenomenal! She was responsive, knowledgeable, patient, and so personable!! She asked all the right questions to get to know what we truly needed and wanted in a home, then helped us achieve our goal. We highly recommend her and will definitely be calling on her again when the time comes!”
- Jeremy & Karen
“I was very fortunate and blessed to have the opportunity to have and work with Doreen in my 1st home purchase. Very professional, experienced, and does what it takes to get the job done. Especially, after dealing with a inexperienced realtor.... meeting her was a breathe of fresh air. You will be a in good hands if you choose her to represent you. She is now considered part of my family... She is definitely ONE OF THE BEST!!!”
“The selling of my house in Virginia was not a usual transaction because I currently live out of state. Fortunately for me, Doreen handled everything. First, she walked through the house and sent me pictures that documented areas that needed attention. Next, she arranged all the repairs, the carpet installation, the painting, and the service calls. Doreen also coordinated access to the house with the management company handling the lease. After the house was ready to be listed, Doreen secured an offer the first afternoon. By the next day, we had a signed contract on the property. Doreen guided me through the contract negotiations as well as the post inspection negotiations. I had complete confidence that Doreen had my best interests at heart throughout the entire process. As the closing date approached, Doreen kept me informed regarding the status of the buyer's loan approval, the buyer's appraisal, and the closing company's progress. Her work was very evident by the fact that we closed one day early without any issues at all. Doreen took a potentially very stressful evolution, and removed all the stress from it. I definitely would and definitely will recommend Doreen to any of my friends and acquaintances that are looking to buy or sell a house.”
“We were very pleased to have been referred to Doreen when it came time to list our home for sale. She is prompt, courteous, professional and personable. She explains everything thoroughly and in terms easy to understand. The entire process was easy and pleasant. We would highly recommend Doreen Boggs! We could not have asked for a better agent.”
- Shawn and Tracey
“Doreen was such a great real estate agent to work with. She really took the time to listen to what we wanted. Many times agents will gloss over faults in homes and try to pressure clients by over stating the positives. She never tried to “tell us what we wanted”. We kept wanting to look at Handyman specials and all along I know she knew we would be over our heads. Doreen is the most patient person in the world, she showed us so many houses. Doreen was always available even when we didn’t give her much notice. When we finally found our dream home it looked as though our loan would fall apart she told me that she thought everything was going to be OK. Everything seemed go wrong with the home we were selling (in another part of the state) but with our home purchase Doreen had everything under control. She made the buying process seem easy and I know that just because she’s that good at what she does.”
- Mary Anne and Bill
“From our very first conversation and all the way through closing day Doreen was truly the most professional and attentive agent I have ever encountered. She managed my expectations, provided me with sound advice and kept the lines of communications open and flowing despite my hectic travel schedule. Her knowledge of the local housing market and years of experience paid huge dividends in targeting the "sweet spot" for my selling price. Though quite modest by today's standards, Doreen's proven track record as top selling agent and countless awards over the years clearly reflect her passion, pride and professionalism for her work. Without question a 5 star agent. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!”
“Doreen was my agent when I recently sold my house in Virginia. The sale was complicated by the fact that I live in California. Doreen was awesome. She gave me great advice prior to putting the house on the market and helped me by providing companies to take care of some of the repairs that needed to be done. She took charge of the sale and never let me down. My house had an offer within three weeks of placing it for sale. I fully trusted Doreen and highly recommend her to any future seller.”
“Doreen is a top-notch Realtor! Faithful and Genuine! She is very professional. She is a genuine person and cares about her clients. She takes extra time out to make sure your needs are met and that you are buying a house you and your family will be happy to live in. She will give her honest opinion and will step in when she thinks someone is trying to sell you something that is not done the right way. She follows through on everything she says. She is the perfect realtor. During my buying process I was never nervous. I was very relaxed and confident because I had Doreen by my side. I would recommend Doreen to anyone who is in the housing market and especially first time homebuyers so you can have a good sense of peace during the process because she will be there every step of the way.”
“Doreen was outstanding. We have ABSOLUTLEY no complaints. She operated with uncompromising integrity. Doreen maintained the highest level of professionalism, but kept the jargon and process to a comprehensive level. I feel Doreen is extremely knowledgeable in her field. My wife and I never felt pressured or forced into anything. To say Doreen exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. She was referred to us by a family friend that spoke very highly of her. Doreen also worked very late hours and diligently to follow through until imperative tasks were completed. Doreen has a very welcoming and warming personality.”
- Ian and Ashley
“I cannot say enough good things about Doreen Boggs. She has now assisted me in buying and selling a home. After working with her on buying a home, it was clear to me that not all realtors are created equal. She demonstrates a level of proficiency that far exceeds other realtors. She is knowledgeable, proactive, professional, and genuinely caring all at the same time. She helped navigate through buying a home in a difficult market, seamlessly. When it was time to sell, I had no worries or concerns. She helped sell my home, kept the communication current, and stayed on top of everything. I was residing in another state, and had absolute confidence in her ability and guidance.. The home listed and was under contract the next day! Buying or selling a home is serious business and there is a lot more at stake with the changes in our economy and housing markets. A knowledgeable realtor is a must and Doreen is in a league of her own.”
"Doreen helped us sell our house through the Homeowner's Assistance Program (HAP). She walked us through the program, told us what to expect, as well as letting us know what we need to do. She then gave us great pointers and some coaching so the house would show well. The pictures she took for the web listing showed the house in the best way possible. Despite the depressed market, we went from listing to contract at asking price IN JUST FOUR DAYS! After contract, she really went to work tying up all the loose ends while keeping us apprised daily. We couldn't have done it without her!"
- Charles & Mary
"Moving can be stressful and there are so many things to juggle and coordinate. We recently relocated to Virginia and didn't have much time to try to find a home in a market that was rapidly changing. Thankfully we were referred to Doreen Boggs. There are not enough words to describe her level of professionalism, competence, and compassion. My husband and I have worked with many Realtors in the past, but Doreen is truly in a class all her own. As a military couple, we as many others, had demanding and unique needs that she met with ease. The personal care and professional service that she provided is unsurpassed. She treated us not just as customers, but as friend."
- Tracy and Shawn
"When I first met Doreen Boggs with Coldwell Banker Elite, I was extremely impressed with her honesty, integrity and positive attitude that she could sell my home. After listing my home with a previous company for months, with no activity, I took my home off the market with the thoughts that I was going to have to endure many more months of two mortgages. With renters not being an option for me, I entrusted my home into Doreen's care. She came forth with a presentation, a market analysis covering the area of my home, gave me a reality check of the kindest nature and brought forth ideas to assist in the sale of my home. After following through with her ideas and working closely with her and her associate Michelle, the reality came true. My home sold in record time. In fact, my home was placed on the market well after others in my neighborhood, yet my home sold before any of the others. Other realtors have inquired as to how I was able to sell my home so quickly and my answer was, I used Doreen Boggs with Coldwell Banker Elite. I'm very thankful for her knowledge set of the market area, her perseverance and her continued support during this trying market. Her commitment and success rate is truly one that I will always remember and refer to other individuals enduring this difficult market. "
"Doreen helped me sell my house when the previous realtor did not even have any one interested enough to see the house. She knew exactly what to do to make the house appealing and the "Stager" she recommended did a wonderful job. Doreen was very responsive and stayed in touch with me and my son and daughter by e-mails and phone contacts, sometimes daily. She knew reasonably priced contractors to handle the jobs that needed doing. I am sure that her hard work finally sold my house in what is a very slow market. She is a warm and caring which makes working with her a pleasure. Many thanks Doreen"

"When my husband and I found out we were moving to Virginia from South Carolina the first order of business was to find a realtor. We were so lucky to find Doreen Boggs of Coldwell Banker Elite. We were first impressed with her strong background and personal experience as outlined on the website, but once we talked on the phone we knew we needed to look no further. She instantly made us feel like we were in good hands. She was always available to us by e-mail and by phone. My husband moved to the area first and Doreen was extremely flexible in showing him houses and neighborhoods. She was a wealth of information about the area and was a great resource for a relocating family. She not only helped us find the home of our dreams but she also coordinated services and referrals we needed to get set up. During the closing process and beyond she was a strong advocate and made sure our needs and rights were met. By the end of the process Doreen was not only our realtor but a friend as well. We would highly recommend her services to anyone.
- Sincerely, Helen
"Our move to Virginia was the first time we ever moved our family. My husband and I didn't know what to expect of the housing market coming from Florida and we only had five days to find a house. Not to mention it was the holiday season! Doreen listened to what our needs and interest were, kept us on track and was prepared every day. Doreen made a very stressful situation relaxing and even fun. She dedicated all her time and energy to us and in the end we were successful in finding a great house for our family to live. We were so fortunate to have gotten her as our Realtor. In the future if we find ourselves needing a Realtor, Doreen will be the first we call! “Thank you for all your hard work.
- Tedd and Marianne
"We had a tremendous home finding experience thanks to Doreen. After moving across the country into an area that we knew nothing about, Doreen eased our concerns and worked tirelessly with us to find the perfect solution to our needs. She balances her limitless energy and professional expertise with a personality that makes you enjoy the experience. We really can't thank her enough!"
