Check out what some of out clients had to say about us!

Alicia is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the market and worked hard to get the most for us, the sellers. Alicia and her team answered any questions that we had and made sure that we were aware of anything that concerned our listing. I would not hesitate to use Alicia and her team in the future.

Alicia Soekawa is the ultimate real estate professional, but even better, a kind and caring person. She guided us through the listing process of my mother’s house, and took care of any and all situations that arose. It was a great comfort, in a stressful time, to have Alicia on our side! She was always available and willing to help, even going so far as taking out my mother’s recycling after mom had moved out, but before the new owner moved in (now that’s service)! It was a pleasure working with Alicia and her team, and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone needing help in either buying or selling their home. Alicia is a gem!
Lundi D.
Alicia is everything a person searching for a home could wish for. Her ability to match all of my specific needs and help me find my dream home in a city I had never visited before is priceless. Once we found the house we wanted, she sat and explained in detail each part of the offer and made sure we didn’t miss anything. Imagine having a responsive, knowledgeable, and influential realtor representing you.
Jesus C.
Alicia is fantastic!!! It was easy and fun to find our dream home with her! She has a lot of experience and knows the city very well. I recommend her 100%.
Tiby C.
There are a lot of great realtors in the area but Alicia goes above and beyond all of them. She has the process down to a science and only accepts the highest standards. In a time where everyone is having an extremely hard time finding and buying homes, she found and helped me purchase a home in a little over a month, pretty much unheard of for the area. Her skill and professionalism helped me win out on over 10 other offers. The process was a breeze and I couldn’t be more grateful. She knows EXACTLY what she is doing and cares about each and every client she has. I’m so glad I was able to work with her and so excited about my new home!
Caroline B.
From listing my home and preparing it for viewings to selling quickly and closing, Alicia's expertise and knowledge was superb. I could not have gone through this process without her. I had full trust in her guidance and support.
Vickie M.
Alicia was very professional and definitely an expert in her field. She was always quick to respond and fought for us tooth and nail. The type of realtor you’d recommend to anyone!
Connor H
Our experience with Alicia was wonderful. Available day or night, she kept up informed every step of the way. Recommending additional professionals for our needs, helped us professionally and privately. Alicia’s demeanor and expertise were paramount in our relationship. Knowledgeable in not only the real estate process, but “reading” people, she was “spot on” with each situation and step in the process. We are grateful for our experience with Alicia and highly recommend her, as we have, to others.
Carrie S
Alicia made my buying experience easy, non stressful and efficient. She knows her stuff and made sure she took care of my family needs. I definitely recommend her if you are buying a home or looking to sell!

Alicia was recommended to me by a friend and exceeded my expectations. I feel lucky to have worked with Alicia as a first time buyer. Alicia is responsive, communicative, friendly, intelligent, and energetic. She knows the Richmond market well. Alicia is patient and makes sure all of your questions are answered. She and her team are very organized and will help you feel supported during the buying process.
Alicia was perfect with the sale of our house. She was decisive, quick to action and a great communicator. We were out of state in our new home during the entire sales process. It was a huge comfort working with Alicia & Co...they went above and beyond. And the icing on the cake = multiple offers and sold for over asking price.
I have been in the mortgage business for over 30 years and have a lot of relationships with agents. We chose Alicia because of her knowledge and professional attitude. She was honest and set proper expectations, while keeping us informed. We were impressed she sold our house quickly and above listing price with multiple offers. We would recommend Alica to friends and family.
Amy Howell
Working with Alicia was one of the best decisions I have ever made. As a first time seller, I was nervous about the process and had a long list of questions - Alicia not only had an answer for each, but an explanation that was very easy to understand. She took the time to walk us through the entire process at the very beginning so we knew what to expect, and I am delighted to say that the only 'surprise' along the way was the sale price, which was higher than I could have ever anticipated. Alicia's knowledge and experience are obvious from the very beginning, but what really stands out is her personal touch that left us feeling more like family than a customer. I can't recommend Alicia & Co. enough - an absolute pleasure to work with!
Ryan Pullin
Alicia and her team were phenomenal to work with. She talked us through every step of listing our house and got us multiple offers over asking. I couldn’t ask for a better realtor. I just adore Alicia.
I experienced Alicia with both buying, as she helped my son buy his first home, and selling, as she helped my parents sell their home to move to retirement living. She definitely has her finger on the skills necessary to navigate the current craziness in the housing market. She was there every step of the way in both situations and I would highly recommend her for any real estate need.
Michael Canova
Alicia was amazing from beginning to end!!! She was so knowledgeable & always had my best interest at heart. She wasn’t trying to make a sale, she was trying to find the perfect home for my daughter & I! Friendly, positive, fun, smart & ethical!! I can’t imagine doing this with anyone but her!!
Tara Gardner
My experience with Alicia was nothing short of amazing. She’s extremely knowledgeable and has such a personal connection with her clients. Would absolutely recommend her, she’s such a pleasure to work with!!!!
Thomas Howell
Upon meeting Alicia, I was impressed by her radiant smile, her eagerness to connect with me as a person and her ability to truly listen to the wants and needs of my husband and me. She took us to the "right " properties and it wasn't long before we found one that we truly loved. Once we decided on a house, her expertise in handling all the details was super impressive. But the most impressive thing about Alicia throughout the whole process of us buying our new house was how rapidly she unfailingly responded to any questions or comments that we sent her. And her answers and advice were always thorough and correct! I have no reservations in recommending Alicia wholeheartedly.
Kerryn McMeans
Alicia was the most professional and responsive agent I’ve ever worked with. Never had to wait for responses if I had questions, and usually addressed concerns before I even had time to think of the question ??. She knows the area, knows the people involved with home-owner items like septic, construction, etc. The process was very smooth and efficient. Always a little nervous when it comes to closing on time and getting the right paperwork in place. Alicia made sure everyone, including myself, did what was needed when it was needed.
I just bought my first home for me and my dad. Alicia was my realtor. I really enjoyed working with her. She knew where all the great locations were to purchase a home. She is patient and very understanding to what you are looking for when buying a home. I consider her a life long friend.
Angela Morris
Our experience with Alicia and her team has been amazing! Alicia has helped us sell our home in Glen Allen AND buy a home in Richmond. She is friendly, extremely knowledgeable and professional, and has been very responsive to our needs and questions. We always felt like we could reach out to her. This is a hectic time to buy and sell a house! Alicia helped alleviate any concerns we had - with her Covid-19 protocol and her positive attitude! We would definitely recommend Alicia and her team to help in buying and/or selling a home!
I first used Alicia and Company when I referred her to my daughter who needed to purchase a house quickly. Alicia was able to find them the perfect dream home even though they were moving from out of town and only had certain times they could look at houses. I then got the chance to use Alicia with Alicia and Company myself when I needed to find a house. We found the perfect house and we got the house at a great price. She worked with us along the way. Anytime I had a question she was there to answer my questions. If I had a concern she took care of it. What topped it all was when I needed to sell my house. We put it on the market higher than we thought we would get to start. We never thought we would get into a bidding war and would end up getting over what we asked and in less than a week. She not only helped us with pointers on how to make it sell but recommended people to clean the house. I am now using those same people to clean my new house because her recommendation was so awesome. I will never use another real estate agent. We have bought six houses and this has been the best experience. If you need a real estate agent to sell or purchase a home I HIGHLY recommend Alicia with Alicia and Company.
Tricia Rudolph
From our first meeting with Alicia it was apparent from her poise and professional knowledge that she was an exceptional agent. Our home had not sold and we were interviewing new agents. When interviewing her, Alicia helped us "unpack" the reasons why our home had been on the market so long with no success in her professional opinion. She focused exclusively on what she was prepared to do in an extraordinarily positive manner that inspired confidence. Her enthusiasm won us over and we selected her to be our new agent. She then delivered ALL that she assured us she would provide; and she was successful in selling our house. Let me mention that the outstanding level of service which her team members provided was equally important, and appreciated. If I could point out two characteristics that make Alicia so exceptional, it is her tenacity and communication. She and her team will be 100% committed to her clients.
Alicia is an absolute gem! Alicia and her team were amazing to deal with while we were selling our home. She was in constant communication with us and kept us apprised every step of the way throughout the process. Alicia is a very special person. She was very sensitive to the fact that it was an emotional time for us and difficult for us to sell our home yet she always remained extremely professional. Alicia is more than just a realtor, she is a good friend who is always looking out for your best interests. Now that my house is sold, I am looking forward to working with her to find my next home. I highly recommend Alicia and her team for all of your real estate needs!
Cathy Semel
Alicia and Danielle were extremely helpful, friendly, and informative on the whole process from start to finish. Extremely good at communicating and being flexible with schedules. Overall great experience as a first time home buyer!
Dana Markee
Alicia took me under her wing as a first time home buyer and made sure that I was very comfortable throughout the entire process. She encouraged me to look for houses on my own, and was willing to go to the plate for me when it came to getting home improvements made and winning a multiple offer situation. She advocated for me throughout the process and was patient in answering all of my questions. I would unequivocally recommend working with her regardless of what price point or budget I was operating with!
Very professional and got the job done. Made purchasing our new home so much easier. Any issues that arise, Alicia and her team were there to tackle them head on!
Alicia Soekawa is an amazing realtor. She came Highly recommended And no doubt executed her role. Alicia will work hard to find you the perfect home and make sure it is beyond your standards.
Travis Agnor
My experience with Alicia was fantastic! Alicia was extremely proactive and went above and beyond what I expected to be an agent's duties. She did not just set me up with the MLS system and expect me to find something on my own. She was constantly communicating with me and always on the lookout for something that might fight my needs. In fact, the investment I ended up buying came from her directly. Alicia’s local knowledge was exceptional. As an investor 2+ hours away, she made me feel comfortable in where I was buying. She redirected me when I was looking in areas that weren’t growing and guided me towards neighborhoods that fit my needs. She was honest and direct throughout the entire process. Alicia’s responsiveness was also a highlight. I was able to call or text her and get answers almost immediately. She almost always responded within 5 minutes. This was my favorite part of working with Alicia because, as a first time home-buyer, I had lots of questions. She was even able to help answer questions and advice on design, financing, and the rental market. Overall, my experience working with Alicia was fantastic. She is proactive, communicative, and responsive. More importantly, she makes you feel like she is on your side by genuinely wanting to do what’s in YOUR best interest. I highly recommend her if you want a realtor that does not just set you up with an MLS and expect you to find something on your own. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
George D.
Alicia sold our house in 2 days! She has a passion for this industry and it really shows. One of my favorite qualities of Alicia is how responsive she is. Selling a home can be nerve wracking and she made it so seamless. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling.
Jaime Lucchetti
Alicia was wonderful! This was our first time buying a house and she made the process go smoothly! She is energetic, kind, and fun to work with! I appreciated how well she communicated with the seller's agent. She helped us get a good deal on the house. She was extremely responsive, via email, text, and phone, which we appreciated. She has a lot of connections in the area and she even hosts events for her clients. Overall, working with Alicia was a great experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Laura Pendleton
Alicia Soekawa was amazing with helping us sell our house! She knew the ends and outs of all the details that needed to be done and communicated them well. What I respected the most was that I knew she wasn't just telling us what we wanted to hear but rather what we needed to know. She was always available and was very quick with a response. It was also nice to work with her wonderful staff who were equally knowledgeable and respectful. Our overall experience couldn't have gone any better. She even won over my husband who is a details oriented guy who loves making deals. I highly recommend Alicia and plan to work with her again when we move in the future.
Karen Crenshaw
Alicia and her team at Alicia and Company were outstanding in the selling of my home. They were very responsive to every question, and communication was always answered quickly. I would HIGHLY recommend Alicia to anyone looking for a realtor.
Alicia is a great person and she is good at what she does. With being a first time home buyer, Alicia negotiated with the sellers every step of the way. I would recommend her to family and friends. We love our home and she helped us every step of the way.
Great to work with. Motiviated. Knows the market and the process well in Richmond. Always available for questions. Have worked with her buying a home and selling a home.
Bought and sold a house with Alicia recently. She is always available and extremely responsive. Stays on top of everything that needs to be done. Helped us manage through a difficult close on one of the houses. Will definitely use again in the future.
Alicia is a top notch agent. I've worked with several agents in different states over the years as we've moved and bought and sold properties and Alicia is hands down the best I've worked with. I mostly appreciated her high level of responsiveness, on top of every detail and even working through a negotiation with the buyers/buyers agents late into the night. She was also direct and candid with us along the way, giving us solid advice that ultimately helped us get a good price for our home in a short timeframe. Alicia's team also provided awesome support throughout the process. I highly recommend Alicia if you're looking for a highly competent and honest agent that will advocate for your interests.
Angel Nair
Working with Alicia was amazing!! I nicknamed her "Johnny" because she is always Johnny on the spot with her super quick response time to all our questions and concerns. She helped us negotiate through some difficult circumstances to get us the deal we were hoping for. I would wholeheartedly recommend her!!!
Alicia was an amazing agent. I'm a licensed agent in Virginia but when relocating to Richmond, I wanted a knowledgeable and competent agent to represent my fiance and me. After a personal referral and spending time researching Alicia's past listings, reviews, and even social media presence, I felt confident having her represent us. She was timely, super responsive, gave great insight into how the Richmond real estate market differs from my home area of Charlottesville, and provided great analysis on each house we were interested in. I'd happily refer Alicia and use her as my agent in the future!
Lewis Nelson
Alicia was fantastic! She made our out of state house hunting experience a breeze and so much easier! She listened to all our needs and wants and found us numerous houses to look at. She was kind, caring, funny, and exactly what we needed to help us find the perfect house for our family. Alicia took the time to get to know us on a personal level which I think helped her find houses that fit us. We will definitely be using her amazing knowledge and skills again.
bjmsj davis
Alicia is amazing. We were purchasing a home from across the US and being there for the walk through of every house we were interested in was not an option. The first realtor that was referred to by my lender, point blank told me he would not face time and made it very apparent I was not a top priority. I then was complaining about this to a friend that found Alicia for me. She took the time to face time through the homes with us and worked around our work schedule. For closing she went above and beyond. My bank was taking it's time on everything!!!! Needless to say I switched banks, but there was a time we didn't know if closing was going to happen on time. I'm freaking out as this means changing flights, rental cars, hotels, and my car at the local airport. Alicia stayed calm on my side but was running around on hers to do everything in her power to ensure we could close on time. Definitely always keeping my scenario in mind of everything I had going on. When I am ready to look for more property for my family, she is the only one I will trust. I just can't say enough about how lucky I was to find her.
Alicia represented us both to buy and sell homes. We are very happy with experience with both. We closed on our new home before selling the existing home. Alicia helped us come up with a plan to get the house sold quickly. The existing house was under contract within 1 week of listing.
Tom Shen
Alicia is a hard-working and caring realtor. She did a great job in both helping us to find a new house and preparing our old house ready for sale (it sold in three days). Her extensive knowledge of the housing market and of the processes needed to sell and buy homes are second to none!
This is our second time working with Alicia, and won’t be our last! She helped us get into our first home and now has helped us sell that home and move into our next! Thanks to her due diligence and hard work we received an offer our second day on the market. She’s quick to communicate and truly knows the ins and outs of the real estate world. We have recommended Alicia to all of our family and friends, and highly recommend you enlist her and her team for all of your buying and selling needs!
Tom Pitera
Alicia is very knowledgeable about our market. She was very accessible and communicated information very quickly. This was an unusual situation since it involved my ex-husband and his wife living in the house. Alicia was sensitive to everyone's position.
I would give her a 5+ rating!!! Awesome to work with! Her first and last mission is customer satisfaction. She is a fighter and helped save me money on a water heater... Provided good suggestions about the interior choices saving more money there... Always promptly responding to my concerns and questions. I highly recommend her for all your current and future real estate needs!! A happy buyer.
Alicia and her team exceeded our expectations in selling our townhouse and buying another house for my family. She listened to our needs and wants and gave helpful suggestions! She is excellent! She loves her job and loves putting smiles on her clients faces. Also, the marketing (photos by a professional) are amazing! If you want to sell your place quick --she is the person to talk to. Thanks!
Courtney Johnson
Alicia is amazing. She is very responsive and always on top of things. This made the home buying process a lot less stressful and she truly cares about finding the right home for you. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.
She is WONDERFUL, she helped us every step of the way and was very quick to respond to all questions and concerns. She took the stress and worry out of buying a home and made it exciting. She was also very flexible with our crazy schedules. You sincerely know she cares and wants to get you in the right home for you and your family. I would recommend her to friends and family.
Alicia Soekawa was my realtor. She and her team have been fantastic every step of the way. She's professional, outgoing and has been a true asset to me while selling my home. She uses all the newest technology including drone photos and video and stays current with all the social networking trends. Alicia goes above and beyond when using her as a realtor.
Cindy Berberich
Alicia and her team were amazing to work with! They helped me find a home very quickly and negotiated to get me an awesome deal. The first deal fell apart because the seller refused to cooperate during the inspection time. Alicia fought hard for me and was able to get me a full release and find me a new home in one day!! She is relentless for her clients and truly cares! I felt so relieved to have her on my side. She is an awesome Realtor and will be mine for life! Definitely do not hesitate to use her as your agent!
Yang Kim
I bought a house with my daughter and Alicia was our realtor. Even though I was not in town during the house hunting Alicia made sure I was included. My daughter said she was always positive and fun to work with. Very good experience.
angela smi
Words can not express my gratitude for the outstanding service Alicia and her team provided. Alicia and her team were hands-on throughout the process of selling my elder sister's home in Richmond. Thanks to them the process went very smoothly with No hiccups, which enabled Barbara to focus on her move back to Maryland after 36 years rather than the worries of selling her home.....The A team had that under control :-) Kudos to Alicia and her team for a job Well done!!
Excellent experience. Alicia sold my home and found a home for my son and daughter-in-law that they purchased. Alicia was responsive to my needs and aggressive with advertising and setting up multiple successful open houses.
My fiance and I are first-time homebuyers and we are so grateful that we found Alicia to help us through the process! We found the house we wanted to buy the day after we first sat down and talked with her (which was an incredibly thorough crash-course in the homebuying process), and our first offer was accepted the same day. After that everything was a bit of a whirlwind, but Alicia kept us on track and we even ended up closing a little earlier than we expected because things went so quickly. Alicia was always incredibly prompt and responsive whenever we had a question about anything, which let's be honest, was pretty often. She connected us with the people who we needed to talk to at any given step, and they were all wonderful as well. She helped us decode things like the home inspection report, walked us through important details like the importance of title insurance, and helped explain the down payment process so we understood where all that money was going and how to get it where it needed to be. She was always gracious with her time and happy to give us a hand whenever we got confused. I loved working with Alicia and would happily recommend her services to anyone who asked for a good realtor.
Hannah Dodge
Alicia was very knowledgeable in representing us with our buying and building experience with our new home. She is very responsive to any and all questions and concerns! Her personal touch was appreciated and her care for us during this process was phenomenal!! Would most definitely buy or sell with her again and highly recommend her!!
I worked with Alicia this past year while making the move from Herndon to Midlothian, VA. She scouted out locations for me while I was in Herndon and really understood what I was looking for in a new place. Ultimately, she successfully connected me with a new Ryan Homes development in Tarrington that was very competitive. Alicia helped me buy and build a new home in a great location that went very smoothly from a distance, even during a year with a new addition to her family. I appreciated her professionalism, local knowledge, and straightforward communication style. I highly recommend Alicia and her team for anyone coming to the Richmond area. Can't wait to be a local myself!
Alicia has been extremely knowledgeable and energetic from the moment I came to her about selling my house. She made sure to explain every step of the process and made it as easy as possible, working around my hectic work schedule. She and her team did an amazing job with the listing and were extremely responsive to my every question or concern pre-listing and while the house was on the market. She helped me sell the home in 3 days with multiple offers! I would highly recommend Alicia to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
wicks katie
Alicia was on top of my needs from the word go. She is extremely knowledgeable about anything and everything to do with the home buying process. The fact that she is very connected in the community was helpful in multiple ways. Alicia was quick to get me into the homes I was interested in and was extremely helpful in the negotiating process. In a market that is very tough to find a home in the area and price point I needed I would not have wanted to do this with anyone else. Alicia was recommended by not one but two different and unrelated people.
Tim Kontos
She is an agent that is honest, has a down to earth personality, and very personable. She is definitely on top of things, poor thing, seems like she works day and night.. I just love her to death..
Alicia was a great agent and I am very happy with her. From beginning to the end, she helped out with every single step; staging the house, contacting all work men to arrange things for us when we did not have time ourselves, quick feedback from visitors, weekly feedback of the market, etc. Additionally she was available anytime I texted or called her, is very responsible and is very professional. I highly recommend her.
Alicia completely exceeded all expectations. From her knowledge of the business, to her personable yet shrewd personality, we couldn't have asked for a better fit. She went above and beyond for us, from having offers on our house the first day it listed (and waiting to sell it for above) to winning us the house of our dreams over other offers. Hire her and trust what she says and you will have no regrets.
Alicia went above and beyond to help us sell our family home. We'd lived in our home for close to 30 years so it was hard to part with the house emotionally, but also logistically. Alicia was with us every step of the way advising us on the current market and every bit of minutia that goes into selling a house. From the renovation to the inspections to everything else, Alicia was available to us. We wholeheartedly recommend working with Alicia, either as a buyer or a seller-- we were both!
John Barnes
We were extremely fortunate to have Alicia as our agent! She was incredibly knowledgeable of the entire Richmond area, always prompt and responsive, and overall always a great person to be around. She picked up on the kind of home we were looking for right away, and helped tailor our search this way. She gave great advice and suggestions every step of the way. When it came to closing, inspection and the appraisal she did a fantastic job of always being a step ahead of everyone else and making sure everything went smoothly. She helped us find our "forever home" and we cannot be more grateful to her. Even now that we have the house under contract, she continues to help us with our transition back to Richmond by putting us in touch with everyone she knows, from contractors, painters, chimney sweeps, etc. We have been very lucky, it is not often you come across an agent with this level of professionalism, knowledge and personal commitment to her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know.
Alicia is awesome! She is very knowledgeable and takes her time to pass the information. She always went out of her way to meet our accommodations. Very pleasant to deal with. Always comes to you with her big smile and positive attitude. She will go step by step throughout the whole process and keeps you posted through start to finish. I highly recommend her to be your next business partner. You wont regret it!
Alicia was referred to us by a coworker and we could not have gone with a better agent! She truly went above and beyond to make sure we found the perfect first home. She was always quick to respond to my texts/calls and checked in on me every day with the next steps. There was never any pressure from her to select a certain house or neighborhood, but her in-depth knowledge of the Richmond area made it a breeze for her to recommend the best neighborhoods based on our preferences. All it took was me showing her a few pictures of my favorite homes and she instantly knew what area we should focus on. She was there every step of the way; visiting model homes, meeting with the builders, calling me and texting me with updates before I even had time to ask! Hands down one of the best customer service experiences I've ever had.
Rebecca Colosi
Alicia is great to work with. I was the third member of my family to use her for buying/selling a home. That, in and of itself, is a testament to her work. Alicia brings a great attitude and positive energy everyday. She is a true professional. Any question she did not have an answer to, which was rare, she would actually follow-up on getting one for you. This is something I truly appreciated, as all too often people say they will get you an answer and then let it immediately fall by the wayside. Alicia helped find our dream home. When we needed encouragement to keep up the search, she provided it. When she didn’t think a house was right for us, she let us know. Alicia cares for her clients and it comes through in her work. Thank you Alicia!
Jake Fram
Alicia is a personable, friendly, and professional real estate agent. She was able to help us find the perfect house we were looking for within our budget and in our desired area of Richmond, VA. Throughout the entire process of buying our first home, she was very responsive to our many questions and made us feel at ease. I would recommend her to any first time home buyer or anyone looking for a quality real estate agent in the Richmond area.
Alicia has been the most professional and pleasurable person to work with during my house buying experience. Her efficiency and quick response made the whole thing smooth from beginning to end. I could not be happier or more impressed with her and her staff.
Casey Heatherley
I had a wonderful experience with Alicia and her team for my home buying experience! Alicia had just had her baby, but Zach took amazing care of me the whole time! Alicia was behind the scenes making sure everything went smoothly. Even when things got a bit dicey, her team was responsive and made sure everything went through! I couldn't be happier with my experience. Alicia and her team are phenomenal!
After viewing the open-house for my (now) home the first day it was shown, I reached out to Alicia to work with me. We had an offer on the house within an hour, and by 9:00 the next morning, our offer had beat out the rest. Alicia was very helpful in maintaining momentum through the entire home-buying process, facilitating an efficient, hassle-free transaction. The constant communication was critical in keeping all parties updated.
Alicia is very knowledgeable about the areas. She is extremely patient and explained all of my questions in detail. Even after closing on my home she has been a resource and has assisted me with questions I had.
Christine Weber
We can't thank Alicia Soekawa enough for the expert guidance and unwavering support throughout the entire home selling process. Her knowledge of current market conditions and competing properties helped us make the home more attractive to buyers and ensure it was priced appropriately. Alicia's expertise in creating an appealing listing and utilizing multiple marketing techniques which included gala open houses and advertising on social media outlets. She is not only backed by a skilled team of video and still photographers but also well connected to recommend competent legal experts to facilitate a smooth transaction as well as contractors to deal with last minute inspection items. Alicia's advice during the time critical negotiation phase was spot on and fair to all parties. And throughout it all her positive attitude and moral support was a blessing when unexpected issues arose. Definitely a 5-star experience!
Wayne Wyrobek
Alicia is a master realtor. Her deep knowledge of the market, professionalism and marketing strategy and personal connection to her clients are what make her stand out from other agents. She is very straightforward in answering all my questions and concerns like letting me know how the selling process works and also, when my neighbor put their house on the market 3 weeks prior. Her passion and commitment to her client is outstanding. She made sure I am updated with any showings and interests that came in from the day the house was listed. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.
Michelle Peltier
Alicia was a fantastic realtor. Personable. Knowledgeable. Concise. We knew from reading her bio that she would understand our values and needs in a home choice. Moving from out of state has its unique set of challenges, but Alicia and her team really supported us through it all professionally and with utmost care. We're so grateful for the many times Alicia made herself available, the late night calls to explain additional steps in the process and the superb communication she had with all the other folks involved. Now that we're here we look forward to connecting with Alicia and her sweet family as friends and not just clients.
Thomas Everflow
Alicia has a team that makes certain all the details associated with selling a home are handled in a very timely fashion. She is knowledgeable of the market and geographic area which means she is able to price your property to sell quickly and for a top price. Alicia is very responsive to questions and provides immediate feedback and information. She is always accessible.
Alicia made every step of the process easy and was very responsive and attentive. Her open house advertising was a huge success! I would recommend her for buying or selling your home.
Alicia is by far the most dedicated & knowledgeable Realtor around. She is prompt in her responses and she is always willing to assist. She provides stellar client service. She takes pride in all tasks that are given and has been very attentive to our needs. I can’t express enough how appreciative we are with everything that she has been involved with, from getting a contract on our house to the process of building a new one. She is a beautiful human being and we are grateful to be connected.

My house sold in two days! Alicia responds quickly to any question or request! She is extremely organized and very knowledgeable! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Alicia. I wish everyone could have such an easy selling process.
She is an absolutely wonderful person and is fantastic at her job. We're first time home buyers and we couldn't have done this without her. If we had any questions at all, she would respond almost instantaneously, despite the time of day, and she'd always have the answer. We've already recommended her to all of our friends and you should use Alicia when you buy a home!
Amanda Seeman
Alicia is hardworking, experienced, personable, and truly has the best interests of her clients at heart. She helped myself and my girlfriend through our first home buying experience and took the time (and had the patience) to answer all of our questions, in detail. She explained every step as we went into it, and made us feel very comfortable with what was going on. Always responds promptly, and definitely has a now-is-better than later attitude. Alicia never kept us waiting or left us in the dark. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home.
What a great experience! Alicia has made the selling of my house an easy, smooth process. Her attention to all the details has been awesome! Alicia and her team have truly "held my hand" from start to finish. She really cares about her clients in a very personal way. Who could ask for anything more?
Simply the best. She will guide you through the whole process, and she will ensure that you get the best deal. She is honest and responsible, and a good communicator. Very professional and dedicated to help her clients. I would recommend this realtor to anyone who wants to sell a house without having to worry about the process.
She helped in listing, got the comparables and helped figure out the pricing. In addition provided feedback after showings which helped understand buyer sentiments. Very responsive and great to work with!!!
Very nice and listened to what we wanted. She was very willing to work with my and my husband's unusual work schedules. She found us the perfect house.
I highly recommend Alicia. Her goal is to help her clients find a home - not just sell a house. Alicia is my guiding star answering my 1001 questions about selling my current home and purchasing my new. Her patience is endless. Alicia is a true professional who knows her business. I trust her implicitly. Thank you Alicia, you are awesome!
Ruth Goodman
I really liked Alicia's direct and friendly personality. Her "get it done" and "I am here for you" style made me feel at ease and comfortable with what could be a very stressful process. Alicia listened to my needs and has been by my side throughout the process. I definitely know she is not a transaction type of person in which once the sale is done, she is gone. She is someone who builds relationships and becomes your friend for life. Thanks Alicia for being there for me -you really are a fantastic realtor to work with.
Wendy Shields
Ms. Soekawa deserves and is nothing less than 5 stars and I highly recommend her as the realtor you choose when buying, selling, or building your future home in the Richmond, VA. area. We have been working with Alicia for the past year in our move from Massachusetts that eventually led to building our dream home. It was a fantastic experience, much because of her personality, knowledge of real estate in the Richmond Metro area, and her professionalism. She was our true advocate, letting us be aware of any potential hiccups while building our home and choosing a location in the area. She is extremely giving of her time, ready to answer any question very quickly, and drove us all around Richmond, literally. She lets you be in charge of what homes you want to see, but offers healthy guidance as well. She is simply wonderful! My husband and I have been extremely pleased working with her.
Rashelle Hayes
Alicia was terrific! Very professional, informative, and results oriented! I had to move to a new city and needed to sell quickly, Alicia didn't fail.
We could not be more impressed and amazed by Alicia! She is the hardest working, most personal and organized Real Estate Professional we have ever known. We worked with her for both buying and selling. Both went wonderful because of her efforts. Her communication is timely and productive. Her networking and social media presence is top notch. Not only is she high energy but she is extremely patient when it comes to listening to her clients. We would give her more than 5 stars if Zillow would let us. She is truly the best!!! Trust her, she knows what she is doing! You will be glad you did.
Excellent customer service! Answers, call, text, and emails promptly. Has been that way since our first call to her about looking for houses and selling ours! We found a house we loved and she helped us draw up the contract to insure we would get it. Great experience.
Paige Healy
I’m convinced Alicia is the best realtor in the Richmond area - she is the reason we found and secured our new home in RVA! We relocated from Austin and she was incredible to work with. She had great insights and advice, was really accommodating to our needs and was super responsive and on top of all the details. We entered into a multiple offer situation and she made certain that we put up the best offer and worked tirelessly to ensure we got the home. She more than exceeded our expectations and needs!
Jenn Short
When three of our neighbors couldn’t sell their houses after being on the market for over six months, we knew we needed a “super-agent” in order for our house to sell. Fortunately, Alicia Soekawa was recommended to us. She had the skills and motivation to get the job done. She sold our house in ten days. She did this by bringing her “A” game starting day one. She gave us great advice on how to stage our house. The quality of the photos she had taken enabled her to produce superior marketing materials. Immediately after the agent open house, we had showings, even before she hosted an open house for the public. Her skillful use of social media helped to insure a high turnout at this event. As we were out of town while the house was being shown, she came to the house before each showing to turn on lights and to make sure everything was in order, and then returned after each showing to turn the lights off and to make sure the house was properly secured. She did this EVERYDAY until the house was sold. Alicia is not your typical agent who “disappears” once they get the listing. She was hands on every day. She always responded promptly to address our questions and concerns. Alicia was not only able to get our price, but other terms we needed. Alicia is HIGH energy. She is a dynamo. She is smart, knowledgeable, and results oriented. We highly recommend her as someone who can get your home sold.
Steve Fram
I have used Alicia for the acquisition of two income properties. Both were  wonderful experiences. Alicia was also very helpful in finding a suitable tenant for one of the income properties. I would not hesitate to use her again.
Alicia is amazing! She made the process of buying a house seem simple. Alicia is an excellent negotiator who had my best interests in mind throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer any questions I had and made sure I was updated on everything throughout the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Alicia went above and beyond our expectations. She did an amazing job selling our house. She is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely had our best interest in mind. The photos her husband had taken of our house were fabulous. It helped to get our house shown and sold within 24 hours of being listed. My husband and I would definitely work with her again and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Kristin Stephens
We came in from out of town and had to find a house in one week, and it needed to be one that could be adapted to a live-in parent. Alicia sent us lots of listings based on our preferences before we came, and we looked through those, but found that they didn't fit what we wanted. She had no hesitation getting different listings for us. She spent 4 to 5 hours every day driving us around. We NEVER felt that she was trying to push us to buy any house above what we asked to see, but we realized that we had originally sold ourselves short. Within 4 days we found a very good match, a house that was under construction. She then spent hours with us picking cabinets, wood flooring, tile, etc. She was always very enthusiastic. She's wonderful!
Winslow Borkowski
Alicia is a personal friend of mine and when my family was ready to buy a house she was the first person I called to help us. She is a go getter with such a positive attitude. She is very knowledgeable about the housing market and is quick to respond. Thank you Alicia!! I would definitely recommend her.
Dominique Cline
Alicia helped us sell our home in 4 days for full price. She was excellent in helping us through the whole home selling process. She knew the neighborhood very well and helped us coordinate contractors for repairs. Her service is top notch! We are so happy we decided to list our home for sale through her and now we can retire and be with our grandchildren. I would highly recommend using Alicia for listing and selling your home.
Yang Kim
I was moving back to Virginia together with my wife and children and we needed to find the right home in the right place at the right time. We were referred to Alicia and she has done an amazing job for us. We lived in a different state "far far away...." and she was able to help us through the process despite being away most of the time. The search wasn't easy because we wanted very specific things and in the end we wanted a very specific home, which was already under contract. Somehow we ended up purchasing this home and so glad we did. What I liked about Alicia is that she knew the community very well, made herself available whenever we needed to reach her, and she is very energetic which proved to be very accommodating considering that we usually had our little kiddos with us. She moved us from viewing all the way to closing and when we look back at how stressful a home purchase can be, we're glad we had Alicia on our side. If you're wondering where to start and who to call, we recommend you give her a call!
George & Tina Georges
I highly recommend Alicia. She is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely has her clients best interest in mind. Alicia is not only an expert in the Richmond, VA real estate market she is an expert negotiator that will go to bat for her clients. She has masterfully handled my transaction and I can not thank her enough. Stop looking for Realtors and call Alicia now.
Bryan Cline
Alicia went above and beyond our expectations in every way. She tirelessly helped us search for the right home...and even spent her entire Saturday helping us with our initial search since we were coming from out of town. She is extremely responsive and accommodating, fitting us in on late notice and responding promptly to emails and texts. I felt like she immediately understood what we were looking for in a house and matched us very well with homes that would fit our desires. Alicia is top notch and I'm so thankful we were able to find such an amazing agent!
As first-time home buyers, we had a ton of questions. Alicia was very quick to respond and gave us a ton of helpful answers (and advice) during our search. Thanks in part to her knowledge of the market and quick response time, we were able to find an amazing house within a couple weeks. Very professional, super nice and highly recommended!
Alicia helped us successfully purchase a house in the Wyndham area. She was patient, flexible and super responsive with our queries. We are first time home buyers and she did understand that and give us appropriate suggestions. She is every personable, competent and confident and we did establish a very good rapport from the very beginning. She helped us view the place several times, get it inspected and went above and beyond to help us. This was my first home buying experience, and she made it as anxiety- free as possible. I will go back to her if I had to buy a house again and have no reservations in recommending her.
This is an individual who is second to none. Mrs. Soekawa is a bright, efficient and extremely hard working person. She is very responsive to your needs and interests, yet truthful and realistic about your options. Everything is handled in a thorough and professional manner. Throughout the process she kept us informed, demonstrating a genuine interest in our satisfaction with the sale. To top it off, you enjoy working with her so much that you are almost sorry to make the sale. She is someone you would like to have contact with your entire life.
Alicia did an amazing job helping us sell our house. She is extremely responsive, always upbeat, and has a good eye for what works well in preparing a house to sell. She knows how important staging and photographs are -- the photos she had taken of our house were incredible, and helped get our house shown and sold within 24 hours of being listed. She loves what she does, and it shows! We would definitely work with her again, and highly recommend her.
Our experience in buying our first home has been absolutely amazing and it is all because of Alicia! She found us exactly what we were looking for with the perfect price tag. Alicia is one of the friendliest and outgoing people I have ever met and her knowledge of the surrounding Richmond areas were outstanding. We had a lot of needs for our first home due to having 2 young girls and Alicia found the best fit for every single one of them. I could not have asked for a more responsive and punctual agent. Throughout all communication with Alicia, she always replied within 5 minutes of my questions/comment. If you are looking for a caring, intelligent, and dependable agent, then Alicia Soekawa would be a perfect match for you!
She's the BEST! Alicia helped me with everything and my house sold very fast. She is a go getter which is why I chose her to begin with. I knew it would be easy and good with her and it was. I highly recommend her!!!
Great to work with. She always goes the extra mile for her clients. She arranged all out showings efficiently and worked around my schedule. All of our offer documents were put together in a few hours and submitted.
I cannot say enough great things about Alicia. Her knowledge, tenacity and care she gives to the entire process is a true testament to what an excellent realtor should be. I was nervous making this large purchase and commitment, but she guided me through the process and assured me that I was making a very smart investment and have not looked back since. Alicia Soekawa is a true professional and an excellent realtor in every sense of the word.
Alicia was wonderful to work with on both the sell side and the buy side. She is always available and responds to your calls and texts immediately. She works hard for her clients, is extremely ethical, and goes above and beyond. I highly advise potential sellers to have Alicia walk through your home and advise you on changes/upgrades to make in order to have the highest impact when you put your home on the market. We did just that, did everything she advised, and sold our home within ONE WEEK at above list price. We recommend Alicia without reservations!
Jackie Larkin
Awesome realtor! Very professional and easy to work with. She made the whole process very easy and smooth. Quick to respond to any issues. We would use her again if we decide to move. Highly recommend using her.
I am a first time home buyer and Alicia made the process less stressful with her expertise and amazing communication. She understood all my house requirements. The first house that I was interested in backed out unexpectedly from the offer and Alicia was there to support and find me a second house a few days later.
Alicia helped us buy a short sale in our dream neighborhood. Anyone who knows anything about short sales knows they are difficult and detailed transactions. Alicia helped to streamline the process by being proactive in negotiations and prompt in all communications. Her knowledge of the local market, responsiveness, and real estate prowess demonstrated to us that she is a realtor worth working with. We would highly recommend her services.
Alicia truly goes above and beyond! My husband and I needed to move quickly and Alicia helped us find our dream home in 5 days! I would absolutely recommend Alicia to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! She has been available to us whenever we need her and always responds almost immediately. She has been an amazing resource and I am thoroughly impressed with her. You will love working with her! :)
Alicia was extremely helpful in my journey to buying my first home, She kept in constant touch, sending me listings that had just appeared, and was able to answer any questions that I had. When we finally came across a beautiful house that was within my parameters, Alicia was there to help with questions we had with the process of home inspections. I would recommend anyone looking to purchase a house to give Alicia a call!
We discovered Alicia from a friend on Facebook. Once we mentioned we were looking for a home to buy! Our friend recommended Alicia. She got in contact with us that same day. She is wonderful. Very outgoing , patient, works hard to really find what it is you're looking for. She keeps us informed and her knowledge of things is amazing. Anyone who works with Alicia will definitely be satisfied.
Alicia is always extremely nice and helpful. She knows a lot about neighborhoods, schools, restaurants, everything! She always responds promptly to emails, calls, etc. we trusted her advice throughout the process and it served us well.
Extremely knowledgeable and professional, courteous and friendly. Really makes the home buying process easy. Me and my wife have enjoyed this process because of her.
As first time homebuyers, my husband and I were unsure of a lot. Alicia has been AMAZING. She has taken the time to answer every little question and walk us through each step. I can say without a doubt, she has gone above and beyond. I would recommend her to fellow first-timers and seasoned home buyers alike.
My husband and I have truly enjoyed working with Alicia in the sale of our home. She handled our listing in a very professional manner and has been easily accessible at all times to keep us informed and answer questions . We are confident that her actions were always in our best interest. She is knowledgeable in her field and has a charming personality which made the whole process of selling our home much easier. We consider Alicia to be not only our realtor, but also our friend. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is planning to purchase and/or sell a home.
Alicia is awesome! She is a detailed person and very responsible. Anytime/any question you need her regarding the houses, she will be there for you! My timeline was really very tight. She made the effort arranging the appointments and walking me through the whole process.
Alicia has been wonderful in all aspects. She portrays a true professional and listens to what the seller and the buyer wants. She is enthusiastic and persistent. Responds very quickly to any questions or concerns that came up during the process. I would only choose Alicia to assist me in the future for buying or selling personal or investment property.
Alicia is a true pro! Her extensive experience and outside the box thinking was exactly what we were looking for in a real estate agent. Astounded by her responsiveness, and patience during the buying process; completely tuned in to her buyers needs. Thank you again for everything Alicia!!
Frank Politi
Working with Alicia has been a blessing. She is extremely knowledgeable with the home buying process and what it all entails. She not only took time to answer our questions but also helped us out every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy their first, second, or tenth home. If you are looking for a house to buy, please reach out to her. You will not be disappointed.
Alvino Medina
Alicia is very professional, friendly and goes the extra mile !! I would recommend Alicia to anyone that was looking to buy or sell a home. Alicia was able to find multiple properties for review in the area we were looking to buy a home!!
Jennifer Forsythe
Alicia is a very caring and knowledgeable realtor who listens to her clients and has their best interests at heart. She works very hard to make sure that the buyer and the seller are satisfied. Also, the pictures that are taken of the sellers house are exceptional. I would use Alicia again without hesitation.
Karen Dyson
As someone moving to the Richmond area, Alicia was very helpful familiarizing me with the neighborhoods, connecting me with resources. She is very responsive to inquiries and helped me make an incredible deal for closing.
Sebastian Tong
Is was a pleasure working with Alicia as a collaborative partner on the selling of my home. She was extremely knowledgeable and her communication skills were superior. I was very impressed with her ability to provide valuable insight during the entire process. I would highly recommend Alicia to anyone that is looking for leadership and representation while navigating the purchase or selling of your home. She truly puts her clients’ priorities first
Judy Bradley
Words cannot adequately describe the experience from start to finish with Alicia & Company. After several company moves in the past, we were confronted with a personal retirement building experience. The building experience was fine, but the many entities of selling a house were foreign to us. Alicia arrived…and with her expert opinions and professionalism, we knew we were in good hands. She made distinct suggestions, never demanded, sought our opinions on every move, and offered exceptional recommendations. Every individual who works on that team was punctual, professional, and compassionate. Any phone call was answered in a short time, calls to check in on our progress and well being were frequent, and procedures explained throughout the entire process. We were at ease, felt professionally guided, and thrilled with the results. We have recommended others to Alicia who have also sold properties. They too have been amazed at not only the process, but any individual associated with the process was recommended or contacted, from lawyers to movers. This outfit is incredibly efficient, trustworthy, and personable.
Working with Michael is fantastic. He takes the time to listen and understand. He is caring and goes above and beyond. As a remote investor, it's very important to work with someone who understands what makes sense for you and your portfolio. I don't write reviews and would prefer not to write this one, but this team is efficient and they deserve all the success in the world. I will continue to work with them and am grateful for their work. Thanks again!
Alicia and her team provided us excellent service in selling our home. Alicia is so professional and also personable. Her expertise in real estate and the market guided us through the process. Thank you Alicia and your team.
Alicia Soekawa is extremely knowledgeable about the area. She responds promptly and always professional. I’m very glad to work with her and her team.
We recently worked with Alicia to sell our home, and we couldn't have been more pleased! We received multiple offers within the first few days the house went on the market, thanks to Alicia's incredible work. We can't speak highly enough of our experience with her.
The team was helpful, considerate, and professional. My family and I found them very responsive. I can't recommend them highly enough!
Alicia and her team have given us such a great experience! Alicia is so knowledgeable and was extremely helpful when helping us to sell my mothers home. She knows the market inside and out and has great insight and advice. She has also been responsive to our inquiries in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Alicia for your next move.
I wanted to take a moment to recognize Alicia. I am in the mortgage business and I work for a company called Sierra Pacific Mortgage. I was fortunate enough to meet Alicia during a recent transaction where she represented the sellers of a property on which a pair of my buyers put an offer. My clients' offer was accepted, but that was just the very start. This particular property had 2 addresses on one parcel (corner lot), and it required a great deal of communication and documentation due to the unique status of this particular property. Providing this was not an easy task and took multiple touches during the process to hash out inquiries from my Underwriting team (dealing with regulation requirements).

Alicia and her team were on point! Whenever there was a question or hurdle that needed to be addressed, they quickly responded and provided the documentation necessary to move the deal along. It's hard to put into words without writing 3 more paragraphs, but for the sake of time and volume, I just want to say how impressed I was with Alicia and her team and their ability to navigate/provide the required conditions mentioned.

If anyone is thinking about using Alicia for their home purchase/sale, they should know that they're employing a top-tier Virginia real estate agent with vast knowledge, a hard work ethic, and a personal interest in each of her clients. Getting more familiar with Alicia and her team since our initial meeting has been an absolute pleasure! From professional to professional, Alicia, THANK YOU!
Thanks to Alicia & Company for their support, recommendation for updates, details and presentation of Tina's house for the open house. For that reason, the offers exceeded expectations. The closing and sale was completed in record time thanks to your team. Many blessings.
Alicia and Frank and her support team are phenomenal. Due to age and health, we have many requirements in both the selling and buying side of our transactions. The patience and expertise shown by both Alicia Soekawa and Frank Romero has been incredible. I have referred this company and will continue to do so. Also the knowledge regarding contractors has made prepping my hose for sale much easier and less expensive then I anticipated.
Caring, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional...Alicia and her team exceed all expectations!! So thankful to have them in my corner as an advocate and resource!
Loved Alicia! She’s responsive, informative and knows what she’s talking about. I’d refer her to anyone I can in the future!
You won’t find a better team. I used them to buy and sell my house and would not have made the money I did without them. Very responsive and upfront with everything. I didn’t have to do anything but follow directions when given.

Alicia has been a great agent for us. Her professionalism, due diligence and her ability to make her clients comfortable is beyond excellence. She knew exactly what we needed when we were ready to purchase our second home in just one meeting!!!! That's commendable. She has very strong work ethics.. She's humble and easy going. I would recommend her to everyone looking to buy or sell.
We used Frank with Alicia & Company to sell our house after a bad experience with a different realtor. Alicia and Frank met with us and promised to provide a great experience and they delivered! They were honest, responsive, caring and quick acting. Highly recommend!
Alicia and Frank met us to discuss selling our house and were way more prepared than anyone else we talked to. They had lots of information about comps and pricing along with ideas to prep our house for sale. They guided us through the selling process and were nothing short of amazing to deal with. With their guidance we were able to get an acceptable offer in less than 24 hours of listing our house. We love this team and highly recommend them.
Alicia Soekawa and her team have given us such a great experience! Alicia is so knowledgeable and was extremely helpful when helping us to sell my mothers home. She knows the market inside and out and has great insight and advice. She has also been responsive to our inquiries in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Alicia for your next move.
If I could give Alicia 10 stars, I would! We were first time home buyers when we met with Alicia, and she made us feel so comfortable and confident with the entire process. Although we felt very prepared with what we wanted, she made sure we knew all of our options. I can truly say she went above and beyond to make sure we were kept in the loop every step of the way. HUGE shout out to her team for being so involved in the process and being so kind along the way. I've recommended Alicia to everyone I know who has even slightly mentioned purchasing / selling a home. Best in the business!! UPDATE: We still keep in touch with Alicia and attend her client events. It's such a wonderful way for her to stay in contact and she always makes us feel so welcomed. Her and her AMAZING team always throw the best events!
We tried to buy our first home in April in Northern Barton Heights. The first house we put an offer on had 16 offers and we realized how competitive the Richmond market is. As out-of-town buyers, we learned that having an incredible team around us was crucial to putting together a winning offer. I saw shining reviews for Alicia and The Collaborative and emailed immediately.

Alicia took the time to have a phone call to deeply understand what we were looking for, and connected us with Jaime, our wonderful agent. She quickly got to work and set up multiple appointments for the four homes we wanted to see.

Jaime is meticulous and pointed out everything she saw—the positive and the negatives of each property. She was patient and kind and got to know our preferences immediately.

We put a competitive offer on a house in Bellevue, but were outbid. It ended up going for quite a bit over asking and we learned just how competitive the market is currently. Jaime was just as eager as we were to start again the next week and she set up appointments for two beautiful houses in Northern Barton Heights. After seeing them, it became apparent that one of them was our dream home.

This is where Jaime’s expertise came through. She guided us through different decisions points, like how much earnest money to put down, how much we should escalate to and in what increments, whether to offer to cover any appraisal gap, and to even consider covering some of the seller’s closing costs. With her support, we put together an exceptional offer that outbid 12 others! We couldn’t have done it without Jaime’s guidance and support. She is friendly, fun, detail-oriented, and truly goes above and beyond.

The Collaborative is well connected and built the best team around us as we moved into the closing process. There was a hiccup on our end and everyone worked together to make sure that we figured things out in time for closing. It feels like we already have community in Richmond thanks to The Collaborative. We’re forever grateful and can’t wait to move into our beautiful home with our family.
Michelle Haydu
Tammie Altieri by far the best at what she does, I found her about a year ago, it was a connection that never steamed out, me and my wife love her to death, she is now a great friend, what she has done for us is remarkable, we were moving from out of state and literally had 5 days to buy a house, we did not renew our lease and it was all our nothing for this to happen for us, the 2nd Day we were in VA Tammi hit a home run and did her thing, we followed her lead, she was confident about us getting our new and first home, and she pulled it off in just 2 days, me and my wife are very grateful that we met Tammi, she is great at her job and overall a great person, thumbs up home girl your the BEST, we look forward to sharing our lives with u as we embark on this next chapter of our lives, Hopefully we can have a lot of fun together out in VA, Hands Down The Best Realtor And Will Battle Til The End, Much Love From The Greens Tammie We Love You!!!
Mark Green
I haven’t sold a home in nearly thirty years, and so much has changed, not to mention the current craziness of the market and interest rates. Alicia instilled confidence and excitement from our very first meeting. Every bit of guidance she provided rang true and worked to my advantage. Trusting Alicia to safeguard my best interests freed me to focus my energy on preparing my house for sale and working through my relocation plan. Her compassion, professionalism, and efficiency gave me the priceless gift of peace of mind during what could have been an extremely stressful transition. I simply can’t recommend Alicia and her staff more highly. They made the sale process smooth, transparent, and unbelievably fast!
Karrin Gordon
Alicia and her team at the Collaborative did an outstanding job listing and selling our home in the Richmond, VA area. After multiple open houses and a ton of showings, we ended up with several offers! Alicia and her team communicated with us along the way and made the selling process as relaxing as possible. Alicia went above and beyond and has great energy. The Collaborative team is trustworthy, knowledgeable and reliable and we are clients for life!
Our buyers agent is Tammie Altieri of The Collaborative. She patiently and persistently worked hours to make our home purchase a reality. Tammie truly listened to us and without any pressure represented us tirelessly. She regularly checked in with us to see if we had any questions or issues that needed to be addressed (which there were none because she is so proactive and thorough). We gladly recommend Tammie as a buyers agent and have no doubt that she will do an excellent job to list properties as well.
Alicia and team are the BEST! Alicia is energetic, enthusiastic, innovative and very knowledgeable. Alicia is a very skilled marketer and excellent communicator. Alicia inspires confidence and builds trust which promotes excellent client/agent relationship. Alicia is outstanding and a #1 Realtor!
Madelyn Williams
TAMMIE IS THE BEST!!!! If I could give her a 10 out of 10 I would. My husband and I are first time home buyers and Tammie always made us feel well taken care of and like we could trust her. She made this whole process easy to understand. She put in SO MUCH work helping us and we are forever grateful. Witbout a doubt we were not easy clients but she displayed so much patience and professionalism. I highly recommend this group but definitely recommend Tammie. She will always be our go to! Thanks Tammie!!
Hayley Smith
Alicia Soekawa and The Collaborative is my trusted Realtor in the Richmond, VA area. She and her team are extremely responsive and highly communicative on the selling process. She helped us sell our first home and guided us every step of the way. She connected us with vendors to get the home ready for sale and the process was seamless. She is a local expert on the real estate market for Richmond and we highly recommend her and her team whether you are buying or selling. She will get you top dollar for your home and negotiate on your behalf!

On a personal level, she is fun and full of energy. She is very truthful, honest and trustworthy. I would recommend her to anyone I know.
Yilin Rogers
Working with The Collaborative and Jaime Lucchetti has been an enjoyable experience from the start. When searching for and purchasing a home can be extremely anxiety ridden, Jaime has made the experience fun, exciting and enjoyable. She was always available to get answers to questions I needed as well as being a go-between myself, the sellers, and others involved in my closing. I would highly recommend Jaime Lucchetti to anyone starting a search for a new home. She is professional, knowledgeable, warm, and understanding and makes the process seem simple and enjoyable. My experience working with her has made me one happy cheerleader for Jaime Lucchetti and The Collaborative team.

My wife and I felt taken care of when working with Alicia! Both Alicia and The Collaborative Real Estate Agency went above and beyond to help ensure that we received our dream home! The agency is honest, insightful and experienced. My wife and I highly recommend this organization for anyone who is seeking to purchase a home which fulfills their needs after exploring all options!

We cannot share enough positive feedback about our experience with Alicia and her team. Alicia is beyond knowledgeable about all things real estate and is a true advisor through the whole process. She truly cares about her clients, will go to bat for them in all situations, and works tirelessly to find them home of their dreams. She's persistent, attentive and so responsive. We're so grateful that she was in our corner and will recommend her to friends and family for years. Thank you, Alicia!

Alicia is the absolute best there is in the real estate game. She has helped our family with multiple properties and we could not be happier with the experiences. She is your biggest advocate and supporter through out every step of the process. No need to look anywhere else because it doesn’t get any better than her!

We have bought and sold 7 homes over the years but most of our old contacts have retired . On the advice of our daughter who works for a large real estate firm in Bethesda we tried The Collaborative and Alicia Soekawa. Our experience was simply the most professional, most strategic, most communicative and organized sales approach we have ever experienced. After updating our home with their input the house went on the market and two days later was under contract and three weeks later it closed at 2K over asking price at a time when the market was slowing down. We have never had a smoother trouble free real estate experience. I would give them 10 stars but there are only 5. The Collaborative is simply the best we have ever seen
