Shelia is our go to person on the local market. She is always very responsive and when we are ready to sell (and retire to warmer climate) we will work with Shelia.
There will never be enough words to express my gratitude to Sheila and Kevin for Selling my mothers home in 48 hours . My mother lived in her home for 58 years in Mosby Woods in Fairfax. With Sheila’s expertise guidance and recommendations we spent almost 4 months working on updates:new chimney, water proofing , asbestos removal and freshening up the entire house inside and outside. It paid off in the end. The photos posted were amazing and the open house was a huge success. We had 5 offers in 48 hours over asking price and are delighted with the outcome! Sheila and Kevin say what they do and do what they say. They are realistic about selling an older home and what would make a difference to the buyer. I appreciated their honesty and integrity and they both understood the emotional element when selling our childhood home. Always responsive, we really relied on them . Definitely the right team for us! I highly highly recommend Sheila and Kevin Carney.
Dear Sheila, I may be selling my house in spring, I will let you know when my decision is made. My house was sold but my son caused me to not sell because of not appearing at the signing time. So , I decided to move back to vienna and take the house off the market. Now that I have placed my dear husband in the Kenington residence I may decide to move, Merry Christmas, grace Ann kennedy
Sheila was phenomenal throughout the process of buying our first home! She provided honest and clear feedback about the houses we saw, took extra time to explain anything we had a question on, and most importantly she helped us structure an offer that helped us win in a competitive situation. We're extremely grateful for all her help and wisdom!
We have been clients of AveryHess, Realtors for over twenty-five years and have always been impressed by their courteous and friendly service. AveryHess, Realtors helped us find our first home in 1994, which is now rental property, and also our current home in 2000. Most recently we contacted Sheila Carney to request assistance in renting our townhouse. Her son, Kevin, has recently joined the AveryHess team, resulting in an even more productive and efficient operation. After contacting Sheila and Kevin, they immediately took charge offering many suggestions about possible upgrades and recommending a contractor to take care of the necessary work. They always made sure that we understood everything that was happening and explained different options along the way.. Sheila and Kevin are hard workers who seek out the best for their clients. We communicated most frequently via e-mails, which were always answered promptly. Their transparency and attention to detail at every step of the way was greatly appreciated. We highly recommend their services, and will definitely use them again in the future if we decide to rent or sell one of our homes.
MS CARNEY HAS ALWAYS BEEN READY TO ANSWER OUR QUESTION AND KEEP US UPDATED ON THE FISCAL PROGRESS ON OUR ARLINGTON PROPERTY...NEVER ANY PRESSURE JUST GENUINE INTEREST ON OUR BEHALF... SHE HAS PICKED UP WHERE HER MOTHER LEFT OFF...WE FEEL FORTUNATE TO HAVE THEM ON OUR SIDE... JOAN AND GARRETT BARRON
Sheila is amazing! We're first time home buyers and Sheila sold it for us (no pun intended). She explained the process, carefully listened to our wants and needs, and worked hard to find the place tailored to that list. She got to know both of us so she could provide expert recommendations. Lo and behold, Sheila suggested a house we wouldn't have glanced out if not for her, and we fell in love immediately. She provided great feedback on all houses we looked at and even took over appointments for us during the closing period so we didn't miss work. Sheila found us our forever home in the perfect neighborhood and we're so grateful for her.
Sheila is the epitome of excellence. Her knowledge, care, compassion and patience are beyond most realtors I have ever dealt with. She has a pulse on the market, knows what sells and how to get the best price for your property. She was a true pleasure to work with, taking her time to be sure all of our concerns and questions were answered. We would recommend her again and again for your real estate needs.
Sheila has given us great, money saving suggestions about how to spruce up the house prior to sale. She has also been very understanding about our time line and personal circumstances.
Sheila was very responsive and a great advocate in helping me successfully secure the perfect townhouse for my and my children. People don't normally think of utilizing a realtor when searching for a rental, but I highly recommend it. Sheila is a good communicator and delivered above and beyond. She knows the area and the market well, and she will be the first person I'll call if I need a realtor in the future.
Sheila made all those nerve-wracking details go away. It was a big help. She was also a rational voice in the process, also a big help.
Sheila had an excellent handle on the market and well guided us in setting a price that resulted in three offers. We got our full asking price and settled within three weeks! She was a pleasure to work with.
Sheila is a very dedicated, hard worker, keeping abreast of things that need to be done and does them or sees that we are informed. She has a wide network of con- tacts and helps to share them. A very positive outlook and very dedicated to her work.
Working with Sheila was a pleasure throughout the selling process. She has an excellent eye for detail and great ideas on how to present the house. She was also vigilant on our behalf when a potential safety issue with an unlicensed realtor came up.
Sheila is the ultimate real estate professional from start to finish. She handled every detail of our sometimes complicated condo sale, ensuring communication with all parties. When our appraisal came back very low after we agreed to a price with our buyer, she went to work with the buyer's agent to correct the problem and kept us informed every single step along the way. We highly recommend her services. Denny and Gary Berry
Sheila has consistently found wonderful tenants for my rental property. I will continue to have her handle all of my real estate needs.
Sheila was instrumental in helping us get into our desired neighborhood. She helped us navigate through the purchase as well as help sell our townhouse with in one week of going on the market. She gave great advice regarding staging and minor improvements that could be made. Everything really paid off! She is extremely knowledgeable regarding the City of Fairfax! I highly recommend Sheila for any house purchases or sale!
Sheila did a fantastic job picking the list price for our house - the most important part of the job, in my opinion!
We selected Sheila Carney as our realtor in 2016. Over the course of 10 months Sheila sold two properties for us. The first property we listed with Sheila was our home in Mosby Woods. Later that same year she represented us in the sale of a condo we owned near the Vienna Metro. Throughout both sales we benefited from her extensive knowledge of the Fairfax real estate market and her dedication to getting us the best price for our properties based on existing market conditions. It was a joy working with Sheila. We appreciated her attention to detail, her upbeat personality and her marketing skills. Selling a home that you have lived in for close to 28 years can be a rather daunting prospect. Sheila offered outstanding advice as we prepped our home for sale from how to present a room to helping us locate good service people to make needed repairs. Throughout the time that our home and condo were on the market Sheila provided us with feedback from prospective buyers and updates on any shifts in the local market conditions. Sheila did an excellent job negotiating the final selling price of our home and later the condo with the buyers’ agents. We highly recommend Sheila Carney and would gladly work with her again. Ellen and Rand Lytton Milton, DE.
Sheila is the best. From the first day that we started to think about selling our townhouse until well after the settlement, she was with us every step of the way! Sheila is very patient and good at explaining the why of everything as well as all of the pros and cons. We couldn't be happier and we will certainly recommend her to all of our friends.
We were first time buyers and Sheila made everything so simple. She also had a great sense of humor and steered us away from problem houses. I will always be grateful to her and her mother Lucille. Just a really great person overall
Sheila has our highest endorsement! As first time home buyers we began our search while posted overseas. She regularly investigated and visited homes on our behalf offering honesty and insight into the NoVA market. When we found our home, some research and further inspection was required. Sheila immediately consulted with experts and visited the county office to acquire the information needed to make informed decisions. Her understanding of our expatriate lifestyle in combination with her professional and trustworthy advice put us in a comfortable position and led to finding not only a solid investment property but also a home we love!
Sheila ensured the many onerous details of selling a house were handled smoothly and in a timely manner. I greatly appreciated her advice, professionalism, care, and attention to detail.
Sheila Carney is an excellent realtor. She is very knowledgeable, organized and responsive. As if that isn't enough, she is also an absolute delight to work with. She made the usually overwhelming processes of real estate go smoothly and feel manageable. I recommend her to friends and family without reservation. Can we give her 10 stars??
"My experience with Sheila Carney was definitely a five star one. From our initial meeting, when I was still trying to figure out how to get started on the road to selling my house, Sheila gave me good advice and made sound suggestions on things I might want to consider in getting ready to put my house on the market. She was very upbeat about the process and her advice was extremely helpful. Her guidance in pricing my house was very helpful and her excellent photographer did an amazing job in showcasing my home. The sales brochure she created was a work of art. I guess one comment I would have to make is that throughout our dealings, I felt completely trusting in Sheila's advice and guidance. The bottom line was we must have worked well together as my house sold - above the asking figure - the first day on the market. I have already recommended Sheila to my friends and hope that when they decide to sell, she will be the first realtor they consider. "
Thank you Sheila! I entrust all my family and friends who are looking for new homes to you!!
Sheila took the time to understand our family situation, from job and commuting needs to children’s schooling over the coming years, and the fact that we would sometimes be overseas on work assignments. She understood that we were not only looking for a home for the family, but a solid financial investment over the long run. Sheila has deep roots in Northern Virginia, and shared that experience with us. Her expertise and passion for this area provided us with crucial context on each house, neighborhood and local community. She always made time to explore different neighborhoods and regions with us, and offered us candid advice when we consulted with her on the finer points of a home or neighborhood. Most importantly, we felt throughout our months-long search that she would devote all the time needed for a thorough, deliberate and thoughtful search. As time went on, that feeling of her being in sync with our needs and desires grew. During the offer process, she provided timely advice and contacts with regard to setting up our financing and working with bank, title company, and seller’s team. We felt that she consistently kept our interests forefront. More than two years after the purchase of our lovely house, Sheila has taken the care to stay in regular touch with us. In subsequently renting out our house while overseas, she has continued to remain an effective advocate for our interests as owners. We truly value this relationship and recommend Sheila and the Avery Hess team -- whether for realty or property management -- most highly! The Tsai Family
Sheila Carney is the absolute best. We bought our first house from her and were so impressed that we used her to sell it for us ten years later. With the sale, she went beyond the call of duty and helped us get our belongings out of the crawl space and got the house ready for sale. She did all this for us while were stationed overseas. We then asked her to act as our buying agent to find a new house in the same area. Sheila came through for us and helped us find just the right house for our family. We began our search online while we were overseas. When we came home to look, Sheila was ready to show us only top prospects. Sheila's top quality is that she really listens. She understood immediately what we wanted and helped us define our needs so that we didn't waste any time looking at properties that were not well suited. Within the space of three days, we looked at almost a dozen properties and found just the right one. Sheila is now OUR Realtor. She took such good care of us that we wouldn't think of asking anyone else to handle our business. She is also just a terrific person and a pleasure to spend time with. House hunting with Sheila is anything but a chore and she made the time go quickly.
Sheila is a true professional and wants to ensure that her clients are getting the best service possible. I was a home stager for a home that she was selling and she ensured that the house was in excellent condition and looked its best before it went on the market. She wants the best for her clients and she does what it takes to make them happy. I would recommend Sheila to anyone that wants to buy a home she is friendly and her focus is making her clients happy
Sheila was excellent to work with. She negotiated well and was able to get us a good deal on our first home. She has a great knowledge of the NOVA housing market and I'd strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home or condo.
My experience with Sheila Carney, and Avery Hess, was top notch. Sheila ensured that all parts of my home sale process went smoothly, and several times went the extra mile to make sure that key items were taken care of, which was especially important for me as I had already moved to another town and was frequently not available to deal with issues around repairs, inspections, contractors, etc. She did a great job staging the house and showing it, and made several valuable recommendations regarding the sales process and negotiations. She acted as my advisor and advocate, and stayed on top of the process from start to finish. I would recommend Sheila and Avery Hess to my friends.
Sheila is an excellent real estate agent. She's knowledgeable, honest, and straightforward with her clients - those are values that are so important in the real estate industry and she exemplifies them all. Her experience and understanding of the Northern VA real estate market would be an asset to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I highly recommend Sheila for your real estate needs!
Sheila Carney has been my realtor for the past 5 years. I have used her both to purchase and to rent properties. She is extremely professional and reliable. I trust her judgement immensely. I am fortunate to have such a person to work with on my properties.
Sheila is highly recommended and an amazing agent. She has sold several homes for us and even helped us find our dream home. In a down market, her expert marketing skills had our house sold in the first weekend. When the house we wanted wasn’t on the market, she expertly negotiated the purchase from a family that wasn’t ready to sell. Without a doubt, if you need an agent in the Northern VA area, Sheila is your best bet.
Sheila has provided superb service, helping me find good tenants for my house. She is always ready to provide information about the potential market value of my house and will be my broker of choice when I plan to sell my place and buy a new one.
I recently purchased a home in Arlington County and Sheila was my agent. In fact, this was my second home purchase with Avery Hess. From the start, she took great interest in learning about my preferences to find the right place. When we found "the one", she moved very quickly and effectively to make the right offer. During the entire process, i found her to be proactive and always provided sound advice. My experience with Avery Hess has been nothing less than superb and I have recommended Sheila to my work colleagues and friends who might be looking for a place in the Northern Virginia area.
I have loved working with Sheila. Her matter of fact style, her responsiveness to my questions and concerns as well as sound advice made the entire process of renting my house easy. Thanks to her I had one less thing to worry about as I prepare to move overseas. You can't go wrong with Sheila.
Sheila was a great help while my husband and I searched for our first home. She updated us with new listings in our area every day and helped by suggesting houses once we realized that all the ones we picked were no good. We are so happy with our house, even a year later and would not have been able to do it without Sheila. When we decide to move again she will definitely be the first call we make, for help, advice, and of course to find us our new dream home.
My wife and I were looking to buy a house a couple of years ago. We ended up working with Sheila, because she was highly recommended by someone I worked with. It was our first time buying a house, so we didn't really know what we were doing. Sheila did a great job explaining everything to us, and guiding us through the entire process. We were able to browse through houses that Sheila and The RightTeam found for us. Sheila also found some other houses for us to look at that didn't come up on the websites. She was very flexible with her time, and she took us to see a lot of houses. When my wife and I were thinking about certain houses, Sheila did a wonderful job of pointing out the pros and cons. It was nice to have an honest opinion. She would caution us against certain things, and warn us about potential problems that she saw. She definitely was professional and honest at all times. She had our interests in mind, and it was a lot of fun house hunting with her. My wife and I did end up buying a house that Sheila found for us, and we couldn't be happier with it. I highly recommend using Sheila and The RightTeam as your realtors. If the time comes for us to sell our house, we will be contacting Sheila to help us out with that as well.
Sheila was recommended by a friend of mines, I am glad she was my realtor as Sheila was patient and understanding of my needs and house desires.

Inanition when it came time to sell my previous house she provided my with good advice and recommendations on selling the house. The outcome was it sold the day it came on market. Couldn't have been more easier. Recommend Sheila as your realtor.

Sheila was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the sale of our home. Excellent communication and attention to details. Thanks Sheila, it was a pleasant experience.
All around excellent experience! I was a first time buyer and Sheila made me feel at ease during the process by informing me of how everything would work and then making it fun, easy, and as distressful as possible. She took the time to understand what I was looking for, drive me around to so many places, walk me through making an offer, to finally closing on my place. She was recommended to me by a prior client and I have and will continue to proudly give her as a reference to anyone in search of a new place. I look forward to her
We absolutely love Sheila Carney! Our journey to find a new home was not an easy one and there were many bumps along the way, but Sheila made us feel like nothing was ever a problem and held our hands through every step of the way. Sheila's response time was exceptional, always getting back to us quickly and efficiently and making sure we had what we needed to keep things moving forward. Sheila is a SUPERSTAR, a true professional and a real estate treasure...you can't do any better!
Sheila did a great job for us selling our home. She was in tune to current market conditions in our neighborhood and a pleasure to work with. Thanks Sheila!
We loved working with Sheila! She definitely knew our neighborhood and succeeded in selling our house in 3 days. Not only does she know the Vienna/Dunn Loring market, but has great insight into timing when to put your house on the market and when to have that first open house. She also gave us great referrals to home/pest inspectors during the process of purchasing our new home. We had our closing for the house we were selling and the house we were buying on the same day and she made it seem effortless.
Sheila was invaluable to me as a first time homeowner, and helped me find the kind of home I really wanted, close to where I wanted to be, within my budget, and helped me figure out the best way to finance it. She was patient with a process that took us about 5 months. I feel great about where I landed and what I paid for it, and I owe the credit to Sheila. She did a similarly thorough job for me a year earlier when I was looking for a rental.
“Sheila is a true professional and wants to ensure that her clients are getting the best service possible.

“Sheila impresses me with the degree of determination that she puts into the representation of her clients and in keeping up with current trends in our industry. She even helps keep me better informed in some areas of the industry.”
