A big heartfelt THANK YOU to all past clients, friends and family, for all your referrals! I haven't only had the privilege to meet new clients, but to build many great friendships throughout my years in the business! (please contact me for more, or to speak with past clients).


I recommend Monica to my friends and I would use her services again and again. Monica is an incredible listener and a wellspring of real estate knowledge. When I started thinking about moving, I contacted her and she walked me through the process of selling and buying concurrently. She was patient and helpful, giving me steps and resources to get my house ready for showing. She helped me stage and used a professional photographer for great photos. We got an offer the day after we listed and had a contract within a week for 11% over asking price. She was available and responsive to facilitate a smooth closing process. Monica helped me find my first house in DC, so she was my first choice to sell and buy another. I have also recommended her to my own friends who sang her praises for quickly finding them just what they wanted. --Kimberly Lauer

Monica sold our parents' home, the family home that we grew up in and we were very emotionally invested in the home. She, from the start, went above and beyond what we expected from a Realtor, appreciated the character and history of our house and helped us stage it for sale. She did an amazing job of showing us how to make our home attractive and bringing out the best in it. Once it was ready for sale, the took it upon herself to visit with local merchants and meet as many people in the area around our house as opssible to let them know about the upcoming sale. She was ready and willing to have Open Houses every weekend until the house was sold!

For the first Open Houses we had more people visiting that we ever dreamed possible and they were not just neighbors!! The thing that we appreciated about Monica was not just her incredible work ethic, but also the fact that she treated our house as if it were her own. From the beginning all the way through securing the contract and going through settlement, Monica was at work and taking care of the details. We would wholeheartedly recommend Monica to anywone who wants a Realtor who will work and fight for you as well as care passionately for you and your home. --Marianne Pendlebury, Steve Guy and Clayton Guy

Monica has my highest regard as a friend and Realtor. Someone in my condo building referred me to her when the time came to sell my condo in Alexandria, VA. I had just retired and my father had just passed away. Monica was in touch with everything I needed to sell my condo and take all the worry out of moving to another city. It was my first time selling real estate and Monica educated me as we went. She knows the market there well and after 3 offers we were under contract the next day. Monica had my best interests at heart the whole way and being the total professional she is, got more for my condo than we had asked. She handled everything from start to finish as I had already moved; she is the total caring professional!!! --Sharon Shears 

I decided to sell my DC home when the market was pretty low - definitely not a seller's market. A friend recommended Monica to me and I will be forever grateful for that introduction! Not only was Monica a delight to work with, she really educated me throughout the process. My expectations on sale price were conservative, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to sell my home three short days after it was listed – and for $25k more than expected. --Sherene Offutt

Monica was wonderful to work with. This was our first home buying experience and she was very helpful at each stage. We were moving back from overseas and she even made sure the house was stocked with some staples when we arrived. MUCH appreciated! She has the highest excellence when it comes to knowledge of the market, enthusiasm, listening skills, problem solving, availability (phone, email, etc.), communication response time, knowledge of basic financing, explaining the stages of buying, keeping us informed of the progress, appearance, professionalism and overall quality of service!  --The Donathan Family 

If we could give Monica ten stars, we would! We rented, bought and sold properties all with her. She was professional, reliable and always worked for our best interest. We even worked with her when we were living overseas and she went above and beyond the call of duty to help get our house ready to be sold.  And, she sold it in less than a week for 5.5% over list price – during the slowest time of the year!  We're so happy!” --David & Clemencia D'Ercole  

Monica Youngling was the perfect agent to help us on our search in the Washington DC metro area. Not only is she familiar with the Northern Virginia real estate market where she sold our home, but she was also well versed in the Washington DC area where we wanted to relocate before our plans changed. When we return to the US, I will definitely be using Monica to purchase our "retirement" home and heartily recommend her to anyone in need of an agent today. --Lorraine

I was truly impressed with her professional excellence in delivering superb services and constant updates throughout the sales process, given the fact that I was out of the country, and was back only for the signing of the contract! --Vanita Talebli

I'm not exactly sure how I came across Monica's website, but not only am I thrilled that I did, I'm sitting in my new (and first) house with many thanks owed her! She was professional, upbeat and friendly from our first contact via email and by the time we had our first meeting about the kind of home I was looking for, I felt like I was her only client. Her insight on properties I was interested in was invaluable, and honest to the point that I knew she was just as concerned about my finding a perfect place of my own as I was.

That is what I appreciated most about Monica: her honesty. I had some experiences with Realtors before finding her, and it was clear after visiting the first couple of properties that she was going to be completely truthful about any of the places I had chosen to visit. I'm sure I knew the answers to some of the questions that I asked, but she was always so patient and understanding. I would not recommend anyone else as wholeheartedly to help with what was alternately one of the most stressful and most rewarding experiences I've ever had! -- Mark Flannery

I had a positive experience! Monica was helpful and sold my property quickly. She listened to my needs and was easily available to help me.  She kept me informed, communicating with me throughout the entire process. I would recommend her to someone in need of Real Estate services! -- Terrie Folks 

Monica, thank you for all you have done to help us find a home. Although the process tends to be hectic and stressful, your positive attitude eased the search and through closing. I have bought real estate several times and this was the best experience so far. -- Mike

Monica goes above and beyond on a daily basis. She helped me understand the intricate details of real estate and was always there to answer every question I had - large or small. Monica has an amazing ability to exhibit exceptional professionalism with a comforting, personable demeanor. Always responsive and punctual, Monica's work ethic is unrivaled. I am grateful to have worked with Monica and eagerly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity! -- Samantha Lee

I worked through two realtor for over a year before I found Monica. Within two months she had found me exactly what I was looking for. Her hard work, enthusiasm and honesty distinguish her from any Realtor I have met or worked with. Her integrity and positive attitude are complimented by her amazing knowledge of the greater DC real estate market. Even during closing, and after, Monica walked me through the process step-by-step so that I had no questions or regrets and ensured I got the best deal possible. Bottom-line, I recommend Monica Youngling to anyone who is serious about buying a home in DC or Northern VA!-- Robert Kavanaugh

I can't say enough great things about Monica. Even though I started emailing her in December of last year, she never pressured me about selling my house. When I was ready, I contacted her and she made it such an easy and enjoyable experience. My house was under contract in less than a week, thanks to Monica's great advice and sense of style. My house looked so great, I wished I could buy it! Thanks, Monica, for helping my transition from Capitol Hill to GA go so smoothly. I will definitely send lots of business your way!  -- Paula Lancaster

After spending a year looking at house listings on my own, Monica was a pleasure to work with. She really listened to what I wanted and made great suggestions. I really appreciated her open and non-judgmental style. She never tried to push any particular neighborhood or property, but let me guide the listings based on my reactions to each house we visited. In the end, Monica suggested the home I finally decided on, even though it wasn't what I had initially anticipated. When we both walked into the house, we knew it was just right for me. Monica was an incredible guide through the whole purchasing process, very accessible and a great resource. I wouldn't have wanted to do it without her. -- Kim Lauer

When we were looking for a home in DC, we spend hours online looking for the right agent...and we found Monica! She...was...AWESOME! We cannot describe how many times she bent her schedule to fit outs and that alone was great, but her knowledge of the home buying process, business savvyness and overall superb work ethic got us a great deal! This lady doesn't just find you the right house for the right price, she will stick by you even after the deal is closed! And, believe us, that means a lot! -- Phil Burggraf & Brooke Maurer

I plan to recommend Monica as soon as the opportunity arises. She is a model for how service should be provided in the Real Estate Community. There was not a single moment that she was unavailable during the entire process, and her honesty and genuine care for my buying needs exceeded the service I have received from other Real Estate Agents in the past. -- Brian Lefton

Monica was a sweet, extremely helpful, and charming presence by our sides throughout the house-searching process. She quickly understood our family’s needs and demonstrated great caring, always going the extra mile on our behalf. Throughout the process she showed that she really loved her job, and kept reaffirming our confidence in her reliability and trustworthiness. We loved working with her and we would recommend her to any family, friend, or colleague. -- Earl & Elena Possardt 

Monica Youngling is more than a real estate agent; she is your number one advocate! My partner and I dragged Monica all over DC looking at everything under the sun. Each having mothers who worked as agents, we were told on multiple occasions that we were the clients from hell; however, we never would have known this talking to Monica. She always greeted us with a huge smile and was eager to take us out again. By the end of our search, we had spent so much time together, we actually missed her. Unlike the previous two agents we had spoken to, Monica was willing to show us anything we wanted to see. She was not judgmental about our price range, and in fact treated us like we were her big sale. 


We came to realize that she really cares about her clients. Thanks to Monica, our experience was wonderful! When we finally found our perfect home, she negotiated a price that included more than enough to cover our closing costs and the property ended up appraising for almost $10,000 more than that price! We ended up with exactly what we wanted and could not be happier to come home! 


If you are looking for an agent who truly cares, who never gives up, and will treat your purchase as if it were her own, then look no further; Monica is your new best friend! -- Adam Cahuantzi & Morgan Earp

Monica worked hard to help us find a house. Not only did she know the market and had suggestions for how to handle the offer and counteroffers, but she had a lot of referrals for a Mortgage Broker, Home Appraiser, etc. All were professional and we would rehire her and them again! We will (and have) recommend Monica to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! She's the BEST! -- Charlie Shyab & Robin Rider

Monica is really a wonderful person and she is also a great RE Agent to have! She is really personable and she will look for homes that suits your needs/personality. I couldn’t really ask for anything more from her as she exceeded our expectations! -- Sean Moore

Monica was wonderful throughout the process of finding and purchasing our home! She was tenacious, fun, enthusiastic and enjoyable in the face of many challenges.

She never stopped looking out for my interests (and general well-being!). I would recommend Monica without hesitation. Not only did I get the condo of my dreams, but I made a great friend in the process! -- Kimberly Gould

Monica was a joy to work with - her passion for her work is evident, and she makes her clients feel comfortable and confident. She is personable and knows the market. -- Brenda Hansen

My jewel of a real estate agent, Monica Youngling, made the sale of my lifetime. I had heard of her salesmanship through my friends who were impressed with her professionalism and creativity in doing her Open House in my Condo building. My friends were not wrong when they recommended her to me. Monica's integrity and communication skills were impeccable. Her entrepreneurial spirit assured me she was going to sell my home and this during the winter time. Her marketing techniques showed results. I do and will always recommend Monica Youngling as the best real estate agent! -- Nancy Jo Roberson

Monica's professionalism, integrity, attention to detail and good nature made our house-buying process incredibly stress free and very enjoyable. She was accessible and more than capable of answering our questions, and went above and beyond the call to assist us in our search for a new home. We were given solid advice about how to make an offer in a manner that would leave us in a favorable position, even in a competitive situation. As a result, not even five weeks after we started looking, we are moving into our new home! -- Janet Kincaid

Monica was extremely diligent and recognized our needs right away. She demonstrated a great willingness to craft the best home-selling strategy possible. Her background in art and design made our home look sensational in the brochure. She also had terrific ideas on how to present our home to potential buyers during the Open House! -- The Scotts

She has a great knowledge of the business and held my hand from start to finish! I, wholeheartedly, recommend her to everyone with real estate needs! -- Elena Olson

Selling two of my units, Monica prepared great marketing material and did not only sell the attractions of the properties, but also the area. There was a great virtual tour on the Internet - Bottom-line - One of my units sold for the highest price per square foot in the history of my condominium complex! I will most definitely refer Monica to others. She is the consummate Realtor - dedicated and responsible! -- David Bailey
