Whether you are buying, selling, remodeling or building a home, my job is to manage all aspects of the process and to guide my clients through both the emotional and the tactical parts of any real estate project.

My family is my greatest passion and joy. I enjoy yoga, tennis, golf & Covenant sports. I support various local and national organizations such as the Alzheimers Association and Cancer Research and Hospice Care.

My husband and I have four children and three much loved Australian Shepherds.  My family has called Virginia home for many generations, so it was an easy decision to move back to Central Virginia in 2002.  We absolutely love working, living and raising our family here in Charlottesville.

Liza was the best agent we could have hoped for as first time home buyers. She knew what kind of house we were looking for before we could articulate it ourselves. She pinpointed our style and was super responsive to our needs and wants as well as our dislikes in houses that we saw with her. We ended up being able to tour a place less than 12 hours after it hit the market because she saw it and called us immediately because she knew we would love it. We did - and are now happy homeowners. We could not have done it without her guidance and real estate prowess. If you want a friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive agent, you won't find one better than Liza!

Liza was excellent -- we found a home in the perfect location, size, and a fenced in yard for my dog. She was patient, informative, and happy to assist in every possible way. I couldn't recommend her more! Thanks, Liza!!!

Liza was knowledgeable, friendly, up-beat, and very engaged and responsive. She guided my wife and I through the process of buying our first home with grace, confidence, and clarity. She provided valuable recommendations and guidance while also helping us to form our own opinions about homes we toured. Liza had our backs from day one and quickly gained our trust. She has our highest recommendation for all aspects of the property purchase process. We could not thank her enough for her help and kindness!

My wife, daughter and I were looking to buy a home in Charlottesville and my daughter who lives in C-Ville was fortunate enough to meet Liza who immediately jumped on the case and helped guide her (and us from afar/living in New York) to a successful and quick closing, especially challenging during the Covid-19 crisis. Knowing the inventory on the market is one thing that she excels at, but her responsiveness and professionalism came shining through and sets her apart from the pack. As a real estate attorney in New York who has handled thousands of closings and know numerous brokers I can (and do!) highly recommend Liza to you.

My wife and I met Liza when we first started looking for a house and she was by our side until we finally found the perfect place almost two years later, then she helped us find a home for my wife's mother. Our needs were very complicated and we looked at A LOT of places along the way. Liza was incredibly helpful at every step. She is THE nicest, warmest, hardest-working, most knowledgeable and most intelligent broker you could possibly find.

Liza is incredibly personable and pleasant to work with. We knew we wanted to hire her the moment we met her. We were on the market for over 2 years getting a sense of what our dream home would be and spent nearly every weekend looking at countless homes. Liza is angelically patient and has a genuine passion for helping people find the perfect place for them to call home. After finding our awesome house we purchased a second home for my mom with her later the next year. We put Liza through the ringer with with all the ways in which we were willing to house us all, including purchasing land upon which to build, houses with guest cottages, possibly convertible basements, and more. She knows all there is to know about all the possibilities and thanks to us she is been in nearly every house in the county. She excels at communication and negotiating optimal and strong contracts. I recommend her to every one I know!

Sara Z. Real estate agent services January 9, 2019

Liza was wonderful! We met her when we went to an open house and just clicked well with her. My husband and I don't have the easiest schedules to work around to schedule private showings, but Liza was always more than willing to figure out a time that would work. She was really good at picking up on our preferences and did a great job pointing out things about the properties we were looking at. Liza had a wealth of knowledge, not just about the area (which was extremely helpful as we are new here), but about the whole buying process. The home buying experience can be a little overwhelming, but Liza did a great job of guiding us through the process and giving us a heads up about what to expect next. She genuinely cares and really made sure that we found the perfect house for us. We were really fortunate to be able to work with Liza and would definitely recommend her!

Devin & Alex Real estate agent services January 9, 2019

We were considering for sale by owner, but I'm so glad we decided to go with Liza as realtor. She has a solid understanding of the local housing market and has vast network of contacts. She was always super quick to respond and made the whole experience a breeze. Would definitely recommend her services!

Wes & Jen Real estate agent services January 9, 2019

We had such a great experience working with Liza. She is a total pro and stays on top of everything. We moved from Florida to Charlottesville and she was our boots on the ground and found us exactly what we were looking for, plus a short term rental too. She is an excellent agent and we've worked with many. She is the best.

Richard M. Real estate agent services January 9, 2019

Liza is one wonderful professional and wonderful person. You definitely want her on your team when you are buying a property because not only does she’s capable of negotiating and finding out crucial information but she also cares very much about her clients and has a lot of integrity. She’s always on time and always prepared and she’s the reason why we have our dream house today. We highly recommend her and we are also going to use her for future reference.
