"Romie is an excellent realtor for the Northern Virginia area. He is not only very knowledgeable in his expertise, but very candid and honest with his views and opinions on the places you look at. He made the buying process a very smooth one, and i would recommend him to anyone in need of a good realtor."
" In my opinion buying a house is a lot harder for the agent than selling a house. Romie took us over a period of a couple months to see a lot of houses. Romie did not give up when we would spend a day looking and find nothing we liked. When we did find something and latter the deal turned sour, he was there all the way. We eventually did find a great house, which was an hour drive away for Romie, but he still happily made the trip. Romie had to do some extra research since the property was on a well and septic. He always came through with the information we needed. I would highly recommend Romie as an agent.
Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all your efforts while selling my father's condo. Your patience with us when we did not have it ready to list as soon as we expected was much appreciated and your knowledge of the current state of the market made it easy to get the listing complete.
When we had multiple offers, your advice and guidance helped to maximize the selling prize. Once we had a ratified contract, you diligently stayed on top of every issue as it arose, making sure everything was in order so the closing was quick and painless. It was very impressive at closing when there was a question as to which storage unit was assigned to the condo and you, having read the entire package of condo documents, were able to resolve the issue on the spot.
Rest assured, we will be in touch the next time we are considering a real estate transaction and will not hesitate to send family and friends your way.
Again, thanks for all your hard work.

"Romie and Tricia made the stress of buying our first home a lot more comfortable. My husband and I are newbies to the whole process and Romie walked us with patience. He allowed us to move at our own speed and never pressured us into something we were unsure of. When we had questions Romie was very educated and able to provide us with an answer. However, if there was something he was unsure of he researched and called upon his resources to find the solution. My husband and I are now in our new home and have Romie and Tricia to thank! We look forward to the many good years we will spend their and will not hesitate to use Romie and Tricia again in the future! We have absolutely no reservations about recommended the both of them to you!

"Selecting my realtor:
Romie Oplinger has been my realtor for 10 years. I bought my first house through Romie. I had found him through my parents – he worked with them to find the house that I would grow up in. When it came time for me to buy my own house, I selected Romie because they had been happy with his capabilities and knowledge so I trusted I would be too.
Buying my house:
Romie has always been pleasant to work with; he is patient with his clients as they take the time to select the perfect house to fit their needs. I found this to be true when I realized that I could not drive down many streets in Fairfax County without passing a house that I had at one point looked at during my 5 year search for the right place. And yet Romie stuck with me, without pressure, until I finally did find that right place.
Romie is also very knowledgeable and answered all my real estate questions. If I ever had any questions that fell outside his area, he referred me to other professionals with whom I was very pleased and who were able to provide me the service or advice I needed (i.e. mortgage questions, home inspection questions, etc.).
Selling my house:
Romie gave me great advice to complete all unfinished projects, touchup paint, and to not put my house on the market until it was 100% ready to show. This proved to be very valuable advice as my house sold in less than two weeks, receiving multiple offers, and closing with no concessions and above asking price in early 2011. I could rely on Romie to provide me with the best advice.
My house looking like a model home is not the only reason my house sold quickly and successfully. Romie did a great job of creating interest and competition between the buyers. He made my expectations clear to them and successfully got multiple offers.
I highly recommend Romie Oplinger as a realtor.

"Romie , thanks for your capable services.
You are very thorough in your understanding of the market, in establishing prices, in dealing with the other brokers and potential buyers and in carrying through with setting terms and complying with them. You did a great job in advertising my house and the townhouse by the use of pictures and videos in various forums. Our success in selling both quickly attests to your effectiveness."
"Greetings. I am writing this letter as a testimony on a job well done by Romie Oplinger. … Romie took the time to understand what my preferences were in finding a house. Patience is a virtue, and Romie had the patience…. to find a house that met my requirements. Romie did not push me into making a decision. … Once the contract was signed, he kept close contact with the lender and the sellers to make sure all events fell into place. Everything went smoothly up to and including settlement. I would not hesitate in recommending Romie as a Buyer's Agent."
- Drew M.
To home purchasers and sellers seeking as honest, competent, and hard working Realtor, look no further. In my opinion, Romie is the best! To say that I was impressed is an understatement. I have delt with many Realtors in my lifetime (70 years), but never one as intelligent, scrupulous, and trustworthy as Romie. Without hesitation, I will utilize his services in the future and I will spread the word as well.

"Open letter to buyers and sellers of real estate.
To EVERYONE thinking about buying or selling real estate, Romie and Tricia Oplinger have shown themselves to be reliable, knowledgeable, and honest Realtors. Because of the very high importance I place on these traits, I have referred them with confidence to my family and friends, and highly recommend them to anyone seeking a real estate agent. With Romie and Tricia as our agents, we have successfully engaged in several real estate transactions. We have sold…. 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange….purchased a residential property as part of the exchange. We later sold our primary residence and converted the investment property into our new primary residence. The referral, purchase, and sale transactions all went well. We are glad that we had Romie and Tricia to advise and help us."

We love you Tricia and Romie!
Eric and I want to express our gratitude for helping us purchase the perfect house. Your knowledge about the real estate market was exceptional and we appreciated the education you provided during the buying process. Your service was beyond that of a Real Estate Agent.
You worked around our schedule, which often led us to view homes in the evening.
When we happened to find a community we liked with two homes for sale, we called you immediately and within an hour we were inside viewing the homes. Once we found the home we eventually purchased, you were there to answer all the late night phone calls we had placed to you; always with a positive helpful attitude.
While we were preparing our offer, you walked us through the purchase process and explained everything very clearly. Once our offer was accepted, you continued to shine in response to the home inspection. When a couple of items were noted during the home inspection, you took it upon yourself to call service companies and get an estimate of the items to be repaired. I was touched by the gift you presented to us during closing and the phone call that came a couple days later to make sure we were happy homeowners.
I am sending anyone who mentions they may be in the market for a new home your way. Thank you again for your assistance. We love our new house!
Monica & Eric

"I just wanted to let you know that I was very impressed with your presentation of the home, including the packet and fliers you had prepared, as well as your professionalism and helpfulness when we spoke. You are a credit to our profession. "
- From a Re/Max agent
I want to thank you for all your help in finding my new home so promptly; I was very pleased with all of your work. I saw in you not only a very professional and skillful person, but also an honest and sincere one. You were there giving me the right advice when I needed it the most; even at times when it was not directly related to the home purchase. The settlement company and home inspector that you recommended both did a great job.
I would like to add that I was very pleased to have met your wife; I am thankful for her for her support and advice too; you two make a perfect team.
