Get to know Reshawna Leaven
My name is ReShawna Leaven. I am a licensed Realtor® in Virginia, Maryland and DC with Keller Williams Kingstowne part of Fairfax County, Virginia. With over a decade of real estate experience assisting buyers and sellers. I have experience with resale, new homes, short sales and bank owned properties. By being exposed and involved in many real estate transactions, it has assisted me to be a better teacher to my clients and assist with their negotiation.
With the real estate industry is more technology based with real estate mobile apps, online digital signatures and property searches, I have been able to leverage these tools to provide a better customer experience. After the sale, the communication with my clients does not end, the communication will always continue which accounts for why my business is 65% being generated from past clients and referrals.
I service home buyers the most with 60% of my business and the remaining is spent assisting home sellers. Though, my true passion is assisting first time home buyers as it’s one of the largest purchases a person makes in a lifetime.
Since home buyers are a large part of my real estate business, it’s important that I have a I have loan program information for them to research to make a sound decision on the type of loan that will fit their lifestyle as well as budget. I have assisted Veterans with VA loans, Virginia Housing Development Authority Loan Programs, VHDA FHA Plus, VHDA DPA Grant, Conventional, USDA Guaranteed Loan, USDA Direct Loan, Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA) America’s Best Mortgage, FHA, Fannie Mae HomeStyle, FHA 203K, BB&T Chip Program and more.
I always put my clients first and provide them with the right advice keeping their best interest in my top of mind. Though, I don't have a crystal ball of the future of real estate, my motto is "when buying a home, always think resale"I love to create a WIN-WIN experience in a transaction.
I am also an active learner, there is always room for more opportunities to learn contracts, techniques to write better offers and gain negotiation skills.
On a daily basis, I actively search for new buyers and sellers, review local market statistics, negotiate offers and terms for clients, communicate with loan officers and other experts to facilitate with the home sale. It’s important to have a skilled professional to assist you with your real estate investments. Pursuing real estate alone is like doing your own taxes.
The #1 Question that I am asked “How’s the real estate market?”
My answer - “Are you interested or committed to buying or selling a home?”

ReShawna worked with me for months on finding the right home. She was always responsive and answered any questions that I had or was unsure of. She had a lot of information about the DMV real estate market is very knowledgeable of different programs, especially the NACA program. I first learned of ReShawna from her videos on YouTube. She went above and beyond to offer as much information as I needed, especially with me being a first time homebuyer. She still provides me with advice even after the sale. I highly recommend ReShawna as a real estate agent and would refer her to all my friends and family.

Reshawna and I worked on a transaction; without her expertise in her negotiation skills the transaction would have fallen apart at the last minute.

"I can't say enough great things about ReShawna Leaven and the service she provided to us while we searched for for our new home. She is knowledgeable about the real estate business, patient, flexible, responsive and knows the area quite well. With her expert guidance we were able to find our new home, one that we will enjoy for many years to come, in an area we really like and for a reasonable price. This is not our first home purchase as we both have bought and sold homes in the past. However, this was the best experience we have had with a realtor. Not only is she an absolutely great person, she is a true professional. We highly recommend ReShawna to anyone who is looking for a home in NOVA or Maryland." by Anna L. on Yelp.com
