Helping buyers & sellers throughout Northern Virginia. Specializing in support for military relocation including Fort Belvoir, Quantico, Pentagon & the Military District of Washington.
Northern Virginia Realtor Cindy Jones
Whether you are buying or selling property in Fairfax County, Prince William County,Arlington, Alexandria or the surrounding Northern Virginia area, it is important to have confidence in your real estate professional. As the Broker/Owner of CJ Realty Group I've learned that one size does not fit all despite what the late night infomercials might say. My goal as your Realtor® is to provide you with the personalized real estate services you deserve.
Providing information on the Northern Virginia area that is up-to-date, reliable and applicable to the local market enables you to make the best possible decision about one of your largest financial assets. In a market where change is around every corner it is important to have an agent who has expertise in marketing, negotiation and understanding the complexities of the real estate transaction.
As a area native of the area and with extensive knowledge of local communities I have a unique perspective on the changes in Northern Virginia over the years. I have seen the real estate market in the area go through numerous cycles and can help you gain a perspective on what that means to you over time.
If you are considering buying or selling a home in Northern Virginia or would just like to have additional information about real estate in your neighborhood, please don't hesitate to call, e-mail me or visit my webiste CJ Realty Group. Let me show you how I use the power of the internet and my innovative marketing strategies to work for you.
Wonder what you might find when you move to Northern Virginia?
Military Relocation to Northern Virginia
As a surviving spouse of a military officer I do all I can to support our troops with either incoming or outgoing PCS orders to Northern Virginia.
I proudly work with military families relocating to the various bases in the Northern Virginia area.Whether your orders bring you to the Military District of Washington, Pentagon, Quantico, Navy Yard, Ft. Belvoir, Ft Myer, Andrews AFB or any other installation in the area I look forward to helping you find the neighborhood and home that works for you. It is my honor to serve those who serve our country every day. If you find yourself with orders to the DC area give me a call. I look forward to helping you with your relocation needs.
With the upcoming relocation of thousands of military and civilian employees due to BRAC 2005 keeping abreast of what is happening with the changes to Fort Belvoir and other local military installations has been high on the list of priorities for CJ Realty Group. One of the most visible and highly anticipated changes is the opening of the new Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and Wounded Warrior Unit.
If you are a eligible for VA Home Loan Benefits and and are looking for an agent experienced in assisting buyers using VA Home Loans give me a call. A VA home loan is one of the few Zero downpayment loan programs available in today's mortgage market. In Northern Virginia VA home loans make up around 1/3 of th loans used to purchase a home. VA loans can be used for resale, foreclosure (without major repairs required) and for new construction.
If you have a little time you can watch the video below from a show with VA home loan experts and agents talking about the value of VA home loans. Don't have a lender you are working with? We can help provide you reccomendations of lenders who also understand VA home loans and will help you with obtaining your VA Certificate of Eligibility and pre-qualify you for a VA home loan.
What is the single most basic element of my job? Helping people. More specifically, I help people realize their home ownership dreams. I love what I do. I have the privilege and fun of helping people find a home that’s just right–one in which they can live, love and laugh. I also consider it an exhilarating challenge to help people sell a home-getting the property ready, highlighting its features and bringing the right buyers to see it.
I believe strongly in the REALTOR®code of ethics. I am committed to serving my clients with professionalism and honesty.
Education is a major part of keeping abreast of the real estate industry and local market. I have earned my Virginia Brokers license (180 hours of real estate education plus national and state exams) and I am Certified Residential Specialist, something only 4% of Realtors® nationwide have earned.. In addtion as an Accredited Consultant in Real Estate my goal is to offer you choices that work for YOU when it comes to buying or selling a home. I never stop at just getting the required hours needed for license renewal I exceed them so that I can stay abreast of what is happening in the industry.
Prior to becoming a full-time Realtor® I worked in both the higher education and educational technology fields helping to build new programs and integrate technology on universities campuses world-wide.With an MBA and professional coursework in Conflict Negotiation and Resolution I know what it takes to write winning contracts, work through the details and end up with a win/win situation for both buyers and sellers.
I believe this background, combined with my real estate experience gives me an edge to help me get the best deal for my clients.You will never hear me say I am #1 because if I don’t get the job done for YOU, the most important person in the real estate transaction, then it doesn’t matter what else I might have accomplished.

I hope you will also check out my VaRealEstateTalk blog as well. It is packed with more information on the Northern Virginiareal estate market.
"I attended the Home Buyer's Seminar, and as a prospective first time buyer, I thought the seminar was extremely informative, personable, and comprehensive. We were able to get thorough information from everything on what to look for in obtaining a mortgage, red flags in home inspections, as well as the contract signing process. I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone who is a first time buyer, or someone who would like the latest information out there." Ted Fenn-Senior Consultant Deloitte Touche
"Thanks Cindy for your approach to getting my unique hold some. The sign rider with the address (6705 Fox Den) of our home was great and made it easy for anyone to find the listing on the internet. We were wowed with all you did and how fast you got our home SOLD! We will recommonded you to anyone who needs an agent in the future." Sherri
Cindy thanks again for helping us find a place to rent while I am stationed at the Pentagon. A number of other agents blew me off but you took the time to listen to what my family needed and found us just the right neighborhood to call home during my tour here. You can be assured I'll tell everyone else in my command about how you went the extra mile to help a military family. Col Jim Sheradan USA
We can say thank-you enough times for all the hardwork you did for us to sell our home while we were overseas. You worked with our tenants to make sure they felt comfortable with having the home listed for sale, you handled all of the paperwork and kept us up to date throughout the process. All of this and we have never meet you face to face. Amazing. Tom & Kathy Kincade.
From the first time we met until we closed on our home there was no doubt in our minds that you had our backs. We had been reading your blog for almost 6 months before we picked up the phone to call you. By then we felt as if we knew you and sure enough you were just as real in person as you are on-line. We are thrilled with our new home and we consider you part of the family now. Jim and Janet Russell
If you are considering buying new construction then pick up the phone and call Cindy Jones. One of our friends bought new construction and their "agent" took them in once and never showed up again. Not Cindy. She went to every meeting, helped us find an independent home inspector, compare financing rates and sat with us at the closing table. And the cost? Not a dime since the builder pays the commission whether you have an agent or not. Carol and Mark Taylor
Thanks Cindy. Even though we were only renters you took the time and effort to find us a place to live while we are stationed at Fort Belvoir. A number of other agents blew us off so we are grateful for the time you took to help. Tom and Kathy White
Cindy's posts on the local neighborhood gave us a leg up when we made our house hunting trip to Northern Virginia from San Antonio TX. We had a whirlwind weekend of housing hunting and found the right house on the second day. Cindy handled the process for us while we went home to back our bags. With electronic documents, house videos & more all we had to do was show up for settlement. We would recommend Cindy without hesitation to anyone relocating to Northern Virginia. Frank and Marie Bowers
Trust took on a new meaning for our family when we recieved PCS orders to the DC area with 30 days to get packed up and moved. We were fortunate to find Cindy on the internet when searching for Fort Belvoir Relocation. She helped us find the links to the school information we needed and then went out to our top choices and took videos & photos for us. We rolled into the driveway of our new home having never set foot in the area. She found us the right house and we will ecommend Cindy & CJ Realty Group to all of our friends in the area. Bob & Jackie Loes
We just finished our third transaction with Cindy. She has helped both sell, buy and then sell again. We have retired outside of DC but have recommended Cindy to our friends without hesitation. John and Amanda Clarke
Even though we were only renters Cindy took our needs seriously and helped us find a place that would accept our two big dogs. She didn't just blow us off as a few other agents had. We know the financial reward for a rental is small so having her take the time to help meant even more. Louise and Frank Waters
Cindy is outstanding and made me glad I retained her for listing. Cindy's keen sense of the market and experience saved my family thousands of dollars, which was especially important after waiting 5 1/2 years to sell in the recovering market. I was especially impressed with how quickly she was able to sell. She also was flawless in handling the miscellaneous issues that pop up following contract offer that enabled the uninterrupted sale. We are immensely grateful for her professionalism and commitment. Lastly, my wife and I are indebted to Cindy's awareness of the impact to the market on Military families. Meredith Family-Port Potomac
Once you work with Cindy Jones, you will never need or want for another realtor! She is the consummate professional and is extremely knowledgeable across all facets of a real estate transaction. Cindy was the listing agent of a property that I purchased in 2011 and all aspects of the transaction were flawless. I was WOW'ed by how simple she made the contract ratification process through her use of state-of-the-art technology such as e-forms and e-signatures.
If I ever sell or buy another property in Northern Virginia, Cindy would be my #1 Realtor of choice. - Janet
