  • I am so happy that I had Jane's expert help in buying a home. It meant a lot that I knew I could count on her for timely responses for all of my questions. She was a great help in deciding on a price and then did a great job of negotiating. I have the utmost trust in her character which is paramount in choosing a realtor. Jane explained all of the technicalities very well so I felt comfortable throughout the process. We wanted to close quickly and she made that happen. It just really felt good to know she was always there for me. I highly recommend Jane to anyone searching for a house!

    Thebes - Buyer, McLean

    Jane is an outstanding agent; hardworking, savvy, and level headed. She flawlessly managed our purchase of a new home and the sale of a previous one for us. In all aspects of each transaction she was competent, timely and above all, an absolute pleasure to work with. We highly recommend using Jane Phillips for your next transaction.

    O'Neills - Seller, McLean
  • Jane is the perfect mix of expertise, professionalism, and empathy. I was fortunate enough to benefit from her skills both in buying my home and in selling that home seven years later. She very thoughtfully listens to clients and understands the deeply personal transaction of buying and selling homes. She also has extraordinary business acumen in realty and can guide the negotiation and contract process masterfully. At every moment I knew that she had my interests fully at the center of the process. She guided us to outstanding results both times: we bought the home at an outstanding price and with a fair negotiation; we sold it with an offer at our asking price within the week. Jane is among the very best in the real estate business and I recommend her wholeheartedly.

    LJH - Seller, Old Town Alexandria

    Jane Phillips did an excellent job assisting us with the sale of a family home. She was resourceful when issues arose, respectful of our opinions and was excellent in her communication style. We were involved in the sale of a family home in VA, yet lived in CA. Jane went above and beyond by checking on the home after storms and also after renovation work was completed. Never once did I feel disconnected. She made a difficult situation as easy as can be. I would highly recommend her!

    CH, Seller - McLean
  • Working with Jane was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We were listing our mother's home (recently deceased) so it was a very emotional time for us, and Jane was so kind and helpful throughout the process. She was very thorough about sharing neighborhood comps, so that our expectations of how much we could sell the house for was in line with the market. That said, with Jane's help and her great marketing of our property, we received a dozen offers and sold well over list price. Jane used a spread sheet to show us all the offers, listing pros and cons of each, so that we made an informed decision. We are totally thrilled with the outcome of this sale, and would highly recommend Jane to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. She is super smart and easy to work with!

    KW, Seller - Annandale

    Jane recently helped us buy a home in Arlington. She was recommended by a friend who had also purchased a home and had a fantastic experience with her. She helped us clearly identify what we were looking for in a home, then sent us numerous listings that fit our criteria until we could narrow it down. She was proactive in searching out the best listings, and an amazing source of advice. We had so many questions about the process and she always had reasonable, well-informed answers. During the negotiation, she gave us great advice that helped us get a very good deal on our home. And during settlement, she knew every single step and kept us on track to close on time. Highly recommend!

    K. Coppin - detached home in Arlington, 2016
  • We had the pleasure of working with Jane Phillips to sell our house this spring. She is the consummate professional. Her attention to detail was extraordinary, and her skills and knowledge of the market resulted in a relatively quick sale of our home. She was always on top of every issue and responded to concerns and questions right away. In fact, she was constantly in touch with us, providing feedback from possible buyers, suggesting ways to keep moving forward, and providing invaluable help with negotiations and settlement. Jane also provided always useful and helpful information in our search for a rental property. She handled that transaction with the same attention to detail and immediate responses that seems to be a hallmark of her professionalism. We have worked with many real estate agents over the years, in both commercial and residential real estate, and we can easily say that Jane is in a class by herself. We could not have been more pleased to have her and Wydler Brothers representing us, and we would happily use Jane and Wydler Brothers again in any real estate transactions that we may have.

    Roberts - helped me sell a home in McLean, 2016

    When searching for our first home 7 years ago Jane was the only realtor that we worked with (of many) who truly heard and listened to our needs. Throughout our home search Jane was reliable, patient and honest in her assessments of each property we visited. She worked tirelessly on our behalf to help us find and then negotiate the purchase of our first home.
    When the time came for us to sell that beloved home, Jane and her team at Wydler Brothers help us to develop a pricing strategy and put together a beautiful brochure and online listing. By the Open House our home stood out among its comps. We received so many visitors that we almost ran out of brochures! The following Monday we received multiple generous offers and Jane was a firm negotiator who helped us to choose the right buyer.
    Having worked with Jane on both sides of a real estate transaction I can honestly say that you would be hard pressed to find a better agent. We have recommended Jane to friends in the area and absolutely use her on our next real estate transaction.

    Brad – helped me sell a home
  • Jane is the ultimate professional. She was responsive, diligent, and detail oriented and made the process enjoyable. Jane was very patient with me, worked hard to find suitable properties, and skillfully managed the negotiations. I have used her twice, and will again should I ever move again. Terrific customer service!

    Pete – helped me buy a home

    Recently, my wife and I had an amazing experience with Jane Phillips of the Wydler Brothers team at Long and Foster. Difficult clients to please, we brought our stubborn opinions and lofty expectations with us to many open houses and other appointments with Jane – we even brought along our parents, each of which had their own opinions on what was needed for our family’s comfort. Jane always handled each meeting with an even temperament, a wealth of patience and a smile. She never seemed to tire of our multitude of questions about the home buying process and never tried to push us into anything we didn’t understand or support. Like many home buyers looking to move up to the next level, we had fairly high expectations and a long list of “must haves” for our next home (all on a budget of course). Jane helped us to narrow down our options and provided her expert opinion on the pros and cons of each property, guiding us with the leadership one expects from an experienced Realtor. With demands such as “updated interior,” “wooded area,” “contemporary architecture,” “natural light,” and “close to the Beltway” all within our budget, the available properties were few. Jane always seemed to find the hidden gems for us to consider. Jane is a canny advisor and shrewd negotiator. She was instrumental in tying up the loose ends before settlement, and made the overall experience as smooth and painless as possible.

    Jason - helped me buy a home in McLean
  • Jane was a pleasure to work with from start to finish! She helped us refine our home search to a community that was a perfect match, and then Jane worked to make sure we found our ideal home. Jane is highly detailed and organized which made the process simple to follow. We so appreciate her making this an effortless home purchase.

    RY – Old Town Alexandria

    Jane helped us buy and sell a unit.
    Her advice and expertise were top-notch making both transactions easy and pleasurable
    When we purchased a unit, Jane provided excellent advice on how to structure our bid. She then followed up by submitting the bid and following up thoroughly. The result was that we were able to purchase a unit at a very fair price. She understood the strengths and weaknesses of our bid and created an offer that maximized the positives.
    When we sold a unit, Jane did a great job of finding a stager and laying out the unit for best sale. She helped get an absolutely top price for the unit bu doing her homework and defending very high priced comps.
    All in all Jane made buying and selling a great experience.

    Ralph –Courthouse/Arlington condo
  • I highly recommend Jane Phillips. As everyone knows, the process of buying and selling a house can be a stressful one but Jane did a great job of removing the stress from the situation. She was always well prepared for whatever came our way and rather than bringing us issues always brought solutions as well. She is extremely knowledgeable about what she does and seeks the opinions of others when necessary. I hope I never have to move again but if I do I would definitely use Jane and will be recommending her to all my friends and family.

    MD – McLean SFH

    Jane Phillips was a joy to work with. Jane was able to make what should have been a stressful experience easy and stress-free. She responded quickly to emails and phone calls, researched locations, was flexible with meeting and showing times and went out of her way to accommodate our needs in order to ensure we found our dream home. I would highly recommend Jane Phillips to anyway looking for a new home in the Washington DC area!

    Lilly – NW DC condo
  • Jane was great in helping us to find a beautiful home and to submit a winning offer in a competitive environment. She turned into what we were looking for in a house and was able to efficiently target our search so that we found the home we wanted within only a couple of weeks.

    BC – Reston SFH

    My husband and I were first time home buyers. Jane made the process so easy for us. Jane was extremely responsive, organized and on top of everything. Because of her we were able to find a home that we love. Thank you Jane!

    BJ – Arlington SFH
  • Jane is an excellent realtor! We contacted her because of the reviews we found online. She was patient throughout the entire process despite us initially being very cautious as we were new to the state and it was our first home purchase. She helped us get comfortable with the market, guided us to select the areas that best fit our needs, and gave us great advice during the negotiation process. We did our research, but she added a lot of value with her advice while guiding us through the pricing and negotiations. Highly recommended!

    PJP – Vienna townhome

    Jane was our listing agent for a townhouse at Reston. Our home was within a mile of the new Silver Line, and we were struggling with how to price this in, because the market hasn't yet adjusted. Jane helped us choose a good price (we got 98.6% of our ask) and helped us be patient until the right person came to buy! Our buyers asked for an awful lot of extraneous maintenance items after their overzealous inspector decided to write a doctoral dissertation on our house (what good is an 83 page report full of ticky-tack items?). Jane helped us find the right contractors to remedy the issues, guided us through the closing, and got us out ON TIME and with CASH IN HAND! We highly recommend Jane to anyone looking for a seller's realtor.

    AJT – Oakton SFH
  • As a local contractor and investor, finding the right real estate agent was essential. Jane has represented myself and my business partner on multiple real estate transactions. Jane is extremely responsive, professional, hard working, and courteous! This is not an easy mix to find in a real estate agent. She is always willing to go the extra mile to assist during real estate transactions which can be very stressful. Another attribute is that she always keeps her cool, which goes a long way during these times. I have recommended her to clients of mine and everyone is always impressed with how professional she carries herself. Do not waste your time wondering if another agent will represent you in this manner for your real estate needs. I trust Jane 100% and highly recommend her!

    Justin - Alexandria SFH

    I'm a local investor and Jane has assisted me with two purchases and one (soon to be two) sales. I've found her to be very responsive to any questions or requests and she is quick to address any issues that arise throughout the transaction. She has the unique ability to remain calm when everyone else (including me) is most decidedly not.
    She was able to help me navigate through the purchase of two properties in need of some serious attention, a renovation loan, a VA loan and all of the little issues that crop up in a real estate transaction (i.e. closing scheduling, unresponsive lenders, absentee buyers, etc.).
    I would highly recommend Jane to anyone who is in need of buying or selling a home. She is the epitome of professionalism and class and the company that she works for holds itself to a high ethical standard, so you can be assured that they are representing your best interests.
    As a professional real estate investor looking to grow my business, I'm very particular about those that I choose to add to my real estate team. Jane has met, and exceeded, my high standards and to further illustrate my confidence in her. I recently signed another listing agreement and I'm in the process of making offers on other properties - all with her as my agent.

    Greg – Alexandria SFH
  • Jane Phillips provided excellent service to us on our recent home purchase. She was always available (even when on vacation) and responded quickly to our requests and questions. She does her job with quiet confidence, never pressuring us to make a decision. Jane displayed patience, knowledge and negotiating abilities that more than met our needs.

    WC - Falls Church SFH

    Jane is the ultimate professional. She is thorough and detail-oriented. It was never a problem to get in touch with her with any questions we had. It was a pleasure working with her and we would definitely do so again.

    JF – Vienna SFH
  • Jane worked with my wife and I over the course of half a year as my company vacillated on my transfer to Northern Virginia. She assisted us with preparing to shop, early home viewing, then helped us sprint to the finish line with three house-hunting trips. She was very knowledgeable of the area and helped us pick the right community. She worked with us intensely during the negotiation and we were able to obtain an excellent price from a motivated (not distressed) seller. She was highly professional; our overall experience was excellent!

    GT – Reston townhome

    Jane is a wonderful agent. She is very knowledgeable about the area and very patient. She let us make all of our decisions at our own pace and did not try to push any certain area or house on us. The first house we hoped to buy fell through and Jane had no problem starting the process all over again with us. Jane is very diplomatic and has wonderful people skills. We are so happy with the house we bought and we would definitely go with Jane as our agent again.

    Natasha – Alexandria SFH
  • Jane is a great agent -- trustworthy, knowledgeable, and effective! Her staging advice provided a huge benefit in showing our home to its best advantage. Once our home was on the market, she responded promptly to any questions and was an excellent advisor during contract negotiations. She was extremely conscientious during the entire process. We are so glad that we selected Jane as our agent and highly recommend her to both buyers and sellers!

    KW – Alexandria SFH

    My husband and I worked with Jane for over 18 months, on and off, as we tried to find our perfect house. We were looking all over McLean and Vienna, and Jane was patient, knowledgeable and very understanding of our schedules. We really couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through the process of buying our dream home. We just moved in a week ago and we are so incredibly pleased with everything! Jane returned our many emails, at all hours of the day, set up so many appointments to see so many homes that they are all a blur, and provided an honest, realistic assessment of each place we saw. She does her homework - she had previewed many of the homes before we ever stepped in the door, which was invaluable. Since we were relatively new to the area, her insights were especially helpful. We rented a home in 2011, and she helped us facilitate that too, negotiating the lease with every bit of the professionalism she showed in negotiating the contract we entered into when we purchased our home.

    SJP – Vienna SFH
  • Jane was an incredible asset to my wife and I as we were relocating from Atlanta to Metro DC. We were not the ideal buyers in that we were several states away, and were ready to buy the right home as soon as it came on the market. This strategy meant that we would often respond to a listing that Jane had sent us with a request that she tour the house and take notes as soon as possible. Jane did this every time we asked, and responded quicker than we could have ever hoped. We ultimately ended up in our dream house, in a neighborhood that we absolutely love and would not have been aware of without Jane truly understanding what most suited my family. I would, without a doubt, work with Jane on a purchase and/or sale of a home in the future, and I would absolutely recommend her services to family and friends.

    Scott – helped me buy and sell a home

    Jane was absolutely fantastic. I would consider myself to be a bit of a demanding client at times, and Jane always exceeded both mine and my wife's expectations. Jane's responsiveness was fantastic. We never encountered any scheduling issues when trying to view a house, even when it was on very short notice (one day, and in some cases even less!) It was as if we were Jane's only client, we always felt as though we were a priority. I would highly recommend Jane Phillips to anyone!

    Andy and Meg - Detached home in North Arlington, 2016
  • A quick note to tell you how pleased we were with Jane Phillips and every aspect of the handling of our search... Jane gets an A+ for professionalism and responsiveness. Everything we asked for was done well and quickly.

    S.W. McLean

    Jane was absolutely a delight to work with from the time I first contacted her until we closed on our house, and even beyond. Jane is an agent who listens to a buyers' wants and needs and does not try to talk clients into anything else. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the Northern Virginia market, and she was always able to answer my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. I intend to recommend Jane to any friends and family who may be looking for a real estate agent in the area in the future!

    Sarah - helped me buy a home in North Arlington
  • My experience working with Jane on finding a new home was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area I was interested in relocating to and was very patient and responsive with my many requests. With her help I was able to find the perfect home for me and my boys in a great neighborhood. I couldn't have been more pleased with the entire experience.

    Brian C

    Jane represented me as a buyer's agent when I purchased my house in 2009 and again when I sold it in 2017 and I couldn't be happier with her performance. Especially on the sale of the house earlier this year, Jane's advice, responsiveness, and negotiation skills were excellent. Jane advised me on good decisions to make with regards to preparing the house and helped with working through the negotiations on the house throughout the sale, ending with a sale price that I was very happy with. Jane's staging and promotion were excellent and we had a large number of viewers at our open house, ending with an offer within 10 days of listing. I should say that all of this was handled professionally and kindly in the context that my ex and I were going through a divorce. Jane was sensitive to the situation, open, and honest throughout the entire process. Thanks to Jane, the sale of our home was not only successful, but met both my and my ex's needs and was handled in a way that let us proceed through our divorce as peacefully as possible.

    S.R. - Seller, Old Town Alexandria, 2017
  • We worked with Jane when we were thinking of moving from Washington, D.C. to Alexandria, VA. She was recommended to us by a friend who worked with her when she was the listing agent on a home they bought. When we first met with Jane she listened to everything we were hoping to find in our next home and neighborhood and talked us through her process. We hadn't decided on a realtor yet but after meeting with her felt very comfortable with her approach and personality. She is very patient and calm and didn't put any pressure on us to make a decision. She kept us up to date on homes in the areas we had our eye on and recommended a few other areas we had not looked at yet. Jane also worked with us to find the right selling agent for our home in D.C. who specialized in the Petworth market. Her recommendation was the perfect match for us and she continued to check in with us as we moved forward on the purchase / sell process. We ultimately decided to move forward with an offer in Alexandria when Jane let us know that a home we had our eye on received an offer. When we decided at the last minute to go ahead and make our own offer, she went to work and put forward a very fast offer letter and worked with our lender to make sure the selling agent was aware of our good standing. Her advice and calm demeanor along the way helped with stress levels during a time that we didn't expect to get the house. Our offer was accepted over two others - mostly due to Jane's advice and approach. Jane has an extremely organized home closing process as well - so she was sure to keep us on time with inspections and contingency timelines. She was able to help us negotiate a closing credit due to some items found during the inspection and kept all of the negotiations straight forward and easy. She dealt with my daily / nightly text messages when I was concerned about the delay in response - and has the perfect personality for easing anxiety, We went through a stressful month putting our home on the market and selling it later than we anticipated, but Jane continued to check in and offer her input and advice along the way. Jane also is a one stop shop for advice on movers, inspectors, and contractors - which helped keep the home buying process easy. We used a contractor that she recommended to renovate the living room and bedrooms in our new home and couldn't be happier with the results. Jane was the right real estate professional for our needs - and I know we wouldn't be in the home we are in today without her. We plan to stay in our current neighborhood for a while - but won't hesitate to recommend her to family and friends looking to buy in the VA/MD/DC area.
