After 15 years in the Defense industry, Lindsey found the freedom she sought through real estate investing and sales. As a licensed REALTOR® in Virginia, she leverages her experience in the Army to navigate the unique challenges her military and government clients face when buying or selling a home.

And understanding that simply finding the right REALTOR® can be a challenge and stressor for those relocating, she is focused on continuously expanding her network of real estate professionals nationwide. Her goal is to remove the research and guesswork from the PCS process and connect those in need with a professional in her network.

Because her transition to real estate from Defense began with real estate investing, she understands firsthand how this source of passive income can provide the freedom we all crave. She enjoys helping her clients find their freedom by starting or expanding their own real estate investment portfolios in Virginia and by connecting friends interested in investing outside of Virginia with agents in her network that specialize in serving investors.

TESTIMONIAL

What my clients say about me

Lindsey is one phenomenal real estate agent! From start to close she’s been incredibly professional, answered every single question I had in a timely manner. She’s gone above and beyond and I couldn’t be happier! I recommend her to all of my friends looking to buy or sell, or even needing advice on investment properties. Thank you again for everything, Lindsey!

I have purchased three homes and worked with five realtors thus far. Lindsey is BY FAR the best realtor I’ve ever had. She is incredibly competent, responsive, and tenacious (an absolute must when it comes to negotiations). She finds solutions to any obstacle and makes your home purchase smooth, understandable, and pleasant. I purchased my most recent home while I was traveling for work in an area with little Internet access and no cell reception; Lindsey is the miracle worker who was able to get me my dream house/location even under those circumstances.

— Alex G, Alexandria

Smart about real estate, and tough in negotiations, Lindsey did a fantastic job as my realtor and helped me to buy a great first home at a very good price. Lindsey handled herself professionally and strongly represented my interests, ensuring that I received everything that I paid for. Her close ties to local lenders was also a great asset. I have already recommended Lindsey to a friend who is considering buying her first home. Thanks again Lindsey!!

— Stephen S

How do I even begin?! Lindsey is the absolute best! From the moment I reached out to her to discuss the potential sale of my rental property, she has been a timely and professional real estate expert! I no longer live in Northern Virginia, so I relied upon her for everything. She gave me recommendations for repairs and cost effective home improvements that all proved to be well worth the investment. Since i’m not in the area, she scheduled multiple estimates from contractors and coordinated directly with my tenant for access to the property.

— Karli, Alexandria

She was great, very responsive, approachable, thorough, and helped us buy our first home. She made the process pretty smooth and painless for us. Thank you, Lindsey. Seriously.

— Shubha D, Alexandria

Lindsey is extremely professional, dedicated, motivated, communicative, honest and trust worthy. Her positive mental attitude and willingness to go above and beyond helped me sell my condo in Woodbridge, VA. I am extremely satisfied with Lindsey’s excellent service! I currently live in Germany and decided to sell my rental property in NoVA. I will admit that I’ve known Lindsey for several years; which is why I knew that she was the right person for the job. Lindsey is someone I could trust to handle my listing from overseas. Even with the time difference, we managed to communicate daily.

— Reuben, Woodbridge

As a first-time homebuyer, Lindsey’s wealth of knowledge of the industry and calm demeanor made the process much easier. Despite multiple challenges, not least of which being my rather exacting standards… Lindsey managed to find a beautiful home for me and helped me get through several difficult situations. I would recommend her to anyone, whether new to the process or more experienced in the real estate market!

— Jen, Alexandria

Lindsey was fantastic to work with! She was very prompt with all that needed to be handled during the entire home buying process. She helped the process move along quickly and smoothly, even though my husband and I were not both in Virginia at the time. Thank you!

— Amy, Dumfries

I have had really positive experiences with realtors in the past, but my recent experience with Lindsey has raised the bar. She came into a challenging situation where I needed to quickly sell a home I had only been in for a few years while simultaneously trying to recoup a portion of my investment. It was a tall, almost unachievable request and Lindsey over-delivered getting the house under contract in less than 24 hours for $25k over the list price. From the first meeting, she listened and considered my goals and concerns, and with a positive and optimistic yet grounded.

— Danielle, Alexandria

Lindsey is by far the best realtor I’ve had the pleasure of doing business with. Her proactivness and sound advice enabled us to move our home quickly, not to mention way above asking price! Highly recommend.

— Aaron, Alexandria

Lindsey was absolutely amazing throughout the home-buying process. She took a convoluted and often stressful few months and made them complication free. Admittedly, as a first time home buyer, I did not understand the home buying process. She walked my wife and I through every step, and she was more than willing to work around our busy schedules. She would answer texts early in the morning, and phone calls late at night. Her willingness to work through our busy schedules made the purchasing of our dream home a breeze, and we couldn’t have found the home without her guidance.

— Mike, Sterling

Lindsey is amazing!!!! She made a stressful process seamless and got us in our dream home that we never thought possible. She is quick to respond, answered all our questions no matter how small, and is extremely detail-oriented. After working with several realtors we would only use her moving forward.

— Heather, Sterling

Lindsey was an amazing real estate agent. She was quick to respond every time, showed me beautiful homes that fit not only my budget but my taste as well, and always has an uplifting spirit (she calls it “PMA” Positive Mental Attitude”) that is contagious. I highly recommend her! She will get you the best deal, work diligently to ensure timelines are met, and is an absolute pleasure to work with!

— Virginia, Woodbridge

As first time home buyers in the very busy, and often unpredictable, Northern Virginia real estate market, we were unsure how best to approach diving in. Lindsey was completely organized and made us feel immediately at ease. She took the lead when it was clear we didn’t know what we were doing, but then knew when to step back and let us work through the decision points on our own. When we found our house, there were 3 other competing offers made at the the same time. She helped us navigate through that situation with thoughtful suggestions

— M.C. Boucher

Lindsey exceeded expectations when we used her to sell our house. Her superior instincts, style and knowledge of the market was evident in every recommendation she gave us. She went above and beyond to ensure our house was attractive to potential buyers, even meeting me to pick out new paint color, carpet and light fixtures! She gave 110% in the preparation of our property which resulted in a contract after the very first open house. I was extremely impressed by her responsiveness and take-charge attitude; she took care of everything.

— Katheryn, Alexandria

Lindsey is exceptionally skilled, trustworthy, and dedicated. I would recommend her to anyone attempting to buy a home in the Northern Virginia area. I purchased my second house through Lindsey in Alexandria, VA and I can’t believe how happy I am with the home along with how Lindsey was able to handle my extremely complex situation. You wouldn’t believe how much help Lindsey provided in getting me into the home I wanted. Lindsey started working with me while I was still deployed overseas (I am in the US Army), and gave me 100% of her time for four whole months.

— Stefan, Alexandria

Lindsey is an absolute professional who not only has an exceptional read on the market but also the style to ensure your home will out show all the competition. Every client becomes a friend and every sale is a personal investment of her time and energy. If you are looking for an agent who will make it happen, while maintaining her integrity, look no further. Buying or selling, Lindsey is the only agent you need.

— Colleen, Woodbridge

Lindsey sold our home in less than a day. Before we decided to leave the area, she was on her way to being equally helpful in identifying a new house. Lindsey is deeply knowledgeable of the local area, competent, speedy, trustworthy, very easy to work with, and will get you maximum value. I can’t think of many other attributes you’d look for in a realtor. Especially in a high stakes real estate market like Northern Virginia. You’d be well-served to contact her.

— Demetrios, Alexandria

We found Lindsey while searching for a realtor to help us with an upcoming move from Hawaii to VA. We already knew going into this move that things were going to be difficult due to the distance involved, the on-going COVID-19 pandemic only served to make things more challenging. Lindsey was immensely helpful throughout the whole process. She was extremely patient with us given our unique situation (the distance and using a VA loan for financing) and was more than willing to work within our constraints to help us find the home of our dreams.

— David, Alexandria

In all the times my family has moved, Lindsey is by far the best realtor we have ever had. I would say she is one of if not the best realtor in the area. She works hard day or night to ensure her clients are well informed and taken care of. She is very knowledgeable and very easy to work with. She has made this transition very smooth for us and we appreciate her more than she knows. I would recommend Lindsey Schmidt to any and everyone.

— John, Woodbridge

Lindsey is simply the best! We have bought and sold multiple houses over the years and this was by far the best home selling experience all because of Lindsey. We actually rushed the process to get our home on the market, putting all the pressure on Lindsey to make it happen. She made it happen! She handles everything and her communication with you will be awesome. I highly recommend choosing Lindsey for your realty needs!!

— Carla, Woodbridge

Lindsey really went the extra mile for us as we set out to find a new home! We were ready to move further out from the city and had very specific needs as we were looking for an equestrian property. Lindsey navigated all of that during the pandemic to get us our dream property. I felt like she really had our back. Highly recommend!

— Kerry, Broad Run

Lindsey was amazing and was able to quickly find us our dream home while tackling the challenges of COVID. Her constant drive to help us and professionalism made buying a home so easy. I have already recommended her to multiple prospective home buyers.

— Christine, Alexandria

Very helpful, professional and very prompt in getting us information and responding to our questions.

— Katie, Alexandria

Lindsey is simply amazing to work with. She helped us to find the perfect home for our family. We had to work around an overseas deployment, traveling back and forth from out of state with our 3 small children, and the coronavirus pandemic all during our house-buying process. Even with all of that happening, Lindsey took all of it in stride and took extra care to make the whole experience easy, comfortable, seamless, and safe in uncertain times. Even with all of everything going on, we actually had the easiest home-buying experience by working with Lindsey–ever!

— Mike, Alexandria

Ms. Schmidt’s knowledge, tenacity, and professionalism are far beyond any real estate professional I have encountered. She made us feel comfortable and confident with the process. Not only was she able find us everything we wanted, but her patience in dealing with a fickle client (that would be me) should be revered. I HIGHLY recommend her for buying or selling a home.

— Crysta, Alexandria

Lindsey has been absolutely fantastic throughout this often stressful process. Lindsey was on top of everything, not only did she provide me with constant updates, but she also answered all my questions and concerns within minutes. Lindsey puts my interests on the forefront, every recommendation she made was well-thought-out. I am truly grateful to have Lindsey as my agent, can’t praise her enough for her professionalism, knowledge, and care.

— Jason, Alexandria

Lindsey was awesome to work with and made the house buying process as easy as possible. She communicated quickly on all matters and really had our best interest. I would highly recommend Lindsey to sell or find your next home as she’s extremely knowledgable, communicative, and overall a great person to work with.

— Samantha & Greg, Woodbridge

Lindsey is a true professional in every sense of the word. She sold my property during a lull in the market in my neighborhood. She explained, in depth, every facet of selling my home, from understanding the right list price, timelines and expectations at closing. She even helped me pick a paint color that really made the house stand out from others! She helped me through the critical steps needed to get to the closing table on time. I’ve known Lindsey for years, and it was nice to have someone completely trustworthy handle one of the biggest financial transactions

— Robert, Fredericksburg

As first-time home owners, navigating through the entire process can be a very daunting prospect. But with Lindsey’s guidance and knowledge, we immediately felt comfortable and confident working with her. She helped and supported us from beginning to end. Her professionalism and keen negotiation skills were very impressive and helped us achieve great results! We can’t recommend her enough!

— Jetta, Falls Church

“Lindsey made selling my home while living in a different state a breeze. She connected me a local realtor utilizing her nationwide network of realtors who was able to land 3 solid offers after being on the market for less than 4 days. Without Lindsey’s expertise, we would not have been able to move as swiftly as we did. Her deep knowledge of investment real estate is amazing!” -Christine, Alexandria

— Christine, Alexandria

Lindsey was excellent and helped us find a home long distance for our relocation to the area. She was super accommodating with video call tours and being our eyes (and nose) during showings. She was also great helping us get to know an unfamilliar and competitive market. She was frank and realistic making sure we had competitive offers and were well informed through the whole process. So glad we chose Lindsey to help us find our new home.

– Nick Springfield

Lindsey was amazing to work with. Despite giving her a challenging list of what I wanted, she was able to get me under contract in 25 days! Throughout the buying process, she was available to answer all my questions. She provided expert support, helping me to submit an offer that was readily accepted by the buyer. Lindsey also offered excellent guidance and feedback to any concerns I had about the borrowing and closing processes. She helped me find the perfect house in the perfect location and I couldn’t be happier! I would highly recommend Lindsey to anyone interested in buying a house in Northern Virginia.

– Patricia, Alexandria

Lindsey helped me buy and sell a home during an exceedingly high pressure time in the market. She listened to what I needed in my new home and helped me prioritize my search. She was very responsive to my requests to view homes, sometimes on short notice. Lindsey was quick to prepare and send out offers, which was especially important during this high pressure market. And ultimately, she helped me purchase the home I really wanted! Lindsey was equally amazing with the sale of my current home. She advised me how to prepare and stage the house so we could get the best sales price. She even helped me carry a mattress down the street, and take measurements in the new house! Full service, always with a smile.
