About Me

After graduating from American University with a degree in Justice and a Minor in Spanish I went to work for the United States Tax Court in Washington D.C.  I traveled all over the country with presidentially appointed Judges conducting trial sessions.  I was often recognized by Judges and the government as an individual who could seamlessly interact and communicate with both government counsel and private citizens in complex and stressful situations.  These skills have become an integral component of my success as a real estate professional.
After 5 years of traveling from city to city, I decided it was time to put my carry on luggage in the basement and embark on a new journey in real estate.  All of the experiences from this prior work life made me acutely aware of the concept of home and how important it is to find the right "home" for everyone, from business travelers to those that work from home.
I take great pride in the fact that most of my business is from past clients and referrals.  I have a go-above-and-beyond attitude when it comes to service for my clients and try to create as seamless and stress free transaction as possible.
Born and raised in Fallbrook, California (the avocado capital of the world) I have enjoyed living in the Northern Virginia area, from Arlington to Reston.  When not working you can find me at one of Reston's many playgrounds with my kids.

“Lindsey Michaels is by-far the BEST real estate agent I have EVER worked with (and I have bought and sold many properties). She is extremely professional and simply gets the job done. She also has a calming presence in the midst of a lot of stress. Her network of local businesses also has proved extremely helpful. She responded to any of my communications within minutes!!! I don't think she sleeps. I recommend Lindsey to all my friends and colleagues. She is truly a gem. ”
Sherri Hebert, Reston VA (Seller)
“I've been working with Lindsey for many years including selling, purchasing, and renting properties. Lindsey demonstrates an unparalleled work ethic and a high degree of empathy. ”
Navid Ahrarian, Leesburg (Buyer)
“Lindsey Michaels' confidence about finding us our perfect home along with her knowledge of the housing market and community, really influenced our decision to go with her as our agent. We were referred to Lindsey Michaels by one of her previous clients and we are 100% satisfied with her performance. She was extremely helpful through the whole process and made what could have been a stressful process, a very easy and smooth one. Lindsey really listened to what we wanted and showed us properties that fit our criteria, she was also very knowledgeable about the properties before going "on site" so all of our questions were addressed right away. Since this was our first time purchasing a home, we had a lot of questions regarding the process and how everything worked. Lindsey always made herself available to answer our questions and never made us feel like we were inconveniencing her. She was at the home inspection and made sure to ask questions that, as first time homeowners, would not have necessarily thought of to ask. Lindsey always checked in with us to make sure we understood everything throughout each aspect of the home-buying process. ”
Elise Bender, Herndon (Buyer)
“Lindsey was wonderful. I have bought and sold other properties in the area and I have never worked with a more effective and more engaging realtor. Thank you!”
Charles Pruett, Washington, DC (Seller)
“Being first time home buyers, we had no idea what we were getting into, and Lindsey made it as simple as possible. She guided us through every step of the process, from our first open house all the way through closing, and was always quick to respond to the hundreds of questions that we had. Lindsey is awesome!”
Brien, Sterling, VA (Buyer)
“Lindsey was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. As a first time home buyer, she helped walk me through everything. She was very knowledgeable and replied to any questions I had within minutes. I cannot express enough how thankful I am and how much I recommend having her for an agent.”
Bryan Buckner, Sterling (Buyer)
“Ms. Michaels did a wonderful job handling the logistics of selling our house. She recommended an excellent price point which resulted in a quick sell which is what we said we wanted since we had already moved to our new home in Florida. One of here strong points is knowing the local market quite well. She was very helpful in navigating the bureaucracy of the Reston Association in getting required releases to sell. She was also quite helpful in lining up people to do some maintenance and cleaning. I agee fully with the person who recommended her to me that she comes with the highest recommendation. ”
Ted/formerly of Reston (Seller)
“Lindsey executed the sale with a great deal of empathy, professionalism, and honesty. Again, she exceeded my expectations and I look forward to working with her again!”
Navid A. (Seller)
“She is absolutely terrific. Our entire selling process could not have gone better. And she is also just a great person.”
Chris Schieffer, formerly of Reston (Seller)
“Lindsey has an unparalleled work ethic and broad knowledge of the end-to-end sales and purchase processes. She always took the time to understand what type of home and neighborhood they were looking for. In order for the process to feel so smooth up front, there must have been effort behind the scenes and that is what separates her from the rest. The home was identified on the fourth of December and was closed on the 28th. During these four weeks we had Christmas and New Year’s, thus not your typical four weeks with people traveling and spending time with their families. You would not have known it based on her level of involvement and awareness. Lindsey also kept her finger on the pulse by letting us know each time a contractual timeline approached which made life much easier, especially during the holidays when there is much going on outside of the home purchase. Her added value and insight are greatly appreciated and she totally exceeded our expectations. She can relate to her clients with empathy and consideration for their needs. We look forward to working with her again very soon!”
Navid A., Ashburn VA (Buyer)
“Can't say enough great things about Lindsey. I was very nervous going into this process and yet she made me feel comfortable the whole time. She knew the area so well and was able to direct me to the neighborhoods she knew would be the best fit for me Lindsey made my home buying experience quick and easy. As a first time buyer I had no idea what to expect but Lindsey was able to walk me through the whole process and explain everything in terms I understood. She helped me find the perfect home in a neighborhood that I love. Then she negotiated for me to get it in my budget! I wouldn't have found or been able to buy my new perfect home without her! I would recommend Lindsey to anyone looking for a knowledgeable realtor who is 100% dedicated to you and eager to help you find your perfect home”
Kathryn West, Reston, VA (Buyer)
“Lindsey Michaels has the ability to know what is needed to be done to a property to appeal to buyers. She also gets the work done for you. Once we told Lindsey about the house we wanted to sell, we didn't have to worry about a thing. She got the minor renovation done very quickly and the house had multiple offers the first weekend on the market. Lindsey Michaels is simply the BEST! I will never use another agent. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so.”
Sherri Hebert (Seller)
“Lindsey was GREAT to work with! She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and respectful. She listened to my wants/needs and provided top quality service! I would highly recommend Lindsey to everyone! ”
Lauren Elliott, Sterling, VA (Buyer)
“Lindsey exuded the utmost professionalism during this process. She's very knowledgeable of the current market and will proactively post and advertise your property as if it was her own.”
Melissa Ng, Arlington, Virginia (Seller)
“Lindsey Michaels was professional and well prepared for our first meeting. She seemed confident in her abilities and made me feel that she'd be the right choice for me. Lindsey walked me through the whole process. She went above and beyond with assisting me with repairs needed post inspection of buyer. I was often out of town and she communicated the entire time (not too much/nor too little) keeping me up to date on progress. I had a great experience selling my first home, and I would reccomend her to anyone. She made the process very easy. So glad she was my choice!”
Mary, Reston, VA (Seller)
