I have used the services of Ms. AngelaButler-Hough (Angel),formerly of Butler Realty and now of Long and Foster,twice during the past 3 years (2009-2011) to buy property at Lake Anna, VA.The first was an extended undertaking involving a year during which Angel patiently scoured the market to find just the right place to fulfill our interests. Her efforts were always thorough and her communication consistently conveyed information accurately, concisely and in a timely fashion. She facilitated the negotiation for purchase in a highly professional manner after finding the desired property and coordinated closing activity so that all went forward expeditiously. Based on the first experience with Angel, I engaged her services again a year later to find and assist in the acquisition of another piece of property in the same sub-division. Her performance mirrored that of the first in all respects. After several negotiations, a third was finally consummated. She kept me focused on the correct issues and appropriate market conditions at all times. I consider Angel to be a most personable, professional, market knowledgeable and client dedicated agent and I continue to recommend her to others.
Angel was great. She protected our interest at every point along the way. We started looking at a lake house and with her help, we ended up with a lake"home". Angel still gives us advice on the various vendors in the LakeAnna area and we have never been disappointed.
I've worked with Doug Hough on a couple different real estate transactions. What really stands out is the depth of local knowledge of the full LakeAnna real estate market and even beyond such as good local contractors. This has been an invaluable long termrelationship.
Best realtors on LakeAnna!Angel is very knowledge of LakeAnna and the surrounding areas. She was very flexible and could meet with us on times that worked best for my husband and I. The house we wanted to buy was listed for $409,000. Angel did the research for comparable sales in the area and was able to get the sellers to come down to a more realistic price that was in our price range. Angel did everything she said and did it on time. Our loan closed 2 weeks sooner than we expected because Angel was on top of everything. It was our best real estate transaction ever! Highly recommend!
Thank you for all of your assistance when my widowed mother relocated across the country to Mineral, VA. The move was a major life change for her and you made everything so much easier for her and me. I really appreciate the way you checked in on her with your emails and telephone calls while she was still in CA, how you called her while she drove across the United States and your complete follow up once she arrived in her new home. In fact, even before she committed to buying a home in VA, your patience with her while she looked at what seemed like a zillion homes before she chose the right one was so much help for me. Your team knows the area inside and out and provided her with a lot of helpful information, (such as utility services, medical facilities and doctors, landscaping and other local contractors) that put her mind at ease when she uprooted her entire life to be closer to me and her grandchildren. Y'all were lifesavers! I highly recommend Angel Hough of Long and Foster, without hesitation, whether one is looking to relocate, purchase a vacation home, purchase a residence in the Lake Anna area, or sell their home or land here, or even rent something in the community. Your team is just aggressive enough to get the job done right without being overbearing. Thank you for everything!
Doug and Angel Hough were very helpful throughout the process of selling our home, so when it came time to buy another one it was an easy choice on who we would call. They are professional, courteous and very knowledgeable about Real Estate and their coverage area. I would highly recommend working with them if you want to buy or sell a home in the Lake Anna and surrounding areas.
Angel was amazing. My husband and I were first time home buyers and she took care of us. She knew the area very well, she was extremely helpful with staying within our price range and she went above and beyond in making sure everything went smoothly. Even after we closed, if we had a question she would do her best to find the answer. She knew information on each house we looked at and if she did not know, she would go home and do research. All and all, amazing realtor and helped us with everything.
We first met Angel and Doug at the Chantilly Boat show around 10 years ago. It was a few years later that we started looking for property at the lake--and Angel was the first call we made. Angel went above and beyond helping us find the perfect property. Since we weren't from the area, she did a lot of "pre-work". She personally visited all of the properties before taking us to rule out properties she knew we wouldn't like. She helped us find the perfect lot--which we recently built on. We've recommended Angel highly to several friends and family members. She has taken good care of them all!
