"Ron Mangas has created an essential hub for buying and selling modern residential architecture. He has tapped into a new zeitgeist that is hungry for good design and is running from the world that gave us McMansions and sameness. As a client I was drawn in by the integrity of the Contemporary Listings brand and vision. It only made sense to connect with old modernists and transitioning trend setters through this website service. Ron's deft touch will continue to help raise the value and awareness of contemporary properties."

"It's not that I'd say we're difficult clients, but super particular. Having worked with Ron professionally, we knew he'd be up for the challenge to work with us personally. I'm a designer and my husband is an architect, so our wish list for our first house together was rather long and kind of out of the ordinary. We emailed Ron our list and he put together a grand tour of homes for us. I think we saw around 30 homes total, and he never complained. He stuck with us as we narrowed the list down to two houses in Reston. He helped us understand what each home value would be before and after renovations so we knew we'd be in a good place financially after renovations. He helped us through making an offer, the inspection, and braved the snow to help us through the actual closing. We recommend Ron and his team as much as we can because he is great to work with. They are all very fun to be around, and they all take care of the business side of things and make it easy."

“Ron Mangas made home buying exciting. He was professional, efficient, and patient throughout the entire process. Ron exceeded my expectations in selling my home in only two weeks. His experience and knowledge of the mortgage industry ensured that I got the best deal possible in the purchase of my new home. Ron was extremely flexible in his willingness to handle last minute questions and requests, as well as working around my challenging schedule. I couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor and friend. I recommend Ron to all my family and friends.”

- Sabrina Copp

“We bought a house remotely, which meant we were constantly asking Ron to scope things out. His service was impeccable, and he helped us get a great place for a fantastic price. Afterward people would knock and ask how we got the place. In a word (or a name)…Ron!”

- The Weber Family

“To sum, Ron is a stand-up guy…which is to say he consistently represents your interests, doesn’t compromise your needs for his benefit, is on the ball, on time, and on task, pursues every possibility, and sees things through to the end. What more could you want in a family member, friend…or realtor? We’ve transacted a number of homes as we moved around the country, and the one with Ron was by far the most enjoyable and satisfying” 

- Mike Weber

“My wife and I sold our home in Vienna, Va December 1, 2006 with Ron as our sales agent. The buyer gave us one hell of a hard time at the very last minute, but with Ron as our agent the trail was made clear for a problem free settlement. Ron’s experience in real-estate sales helped us sell our home at at least 200k over market value. He worked tirelessly at this sale from beginning to end. With this extra cash were able to purchase our next home with cash and are now debt free. What a guy! ”

- John & Ann Mastbrook

“My family and I were relocated to VA, and we were pretty unfamiliar with the overall area. Ron worked close by with my wife and I, helping us into a very nice rental home in Reston, to get more acclimated with the area before deciding to buy. After our first year renting we decided to call Ron back to help us find our new home. We faced a lot of competition in the neighborhood we desired, but Ron’s expertise in that area, and strong relationships with the local Realtors gave us an advantage. We now live in a gorgeous home in a sought after community. Ron was a pleasure to work with, and really is a true neighborhood expert”

- The Denks Family

"Ron is terrific and creative agent. He designed a world class flyer for our home. In addition he created a YouTube marketing presentation to aid in our home sale. Ron is an outstanding and professional real estate agent. We recommend him highly to other prospective sellers/buyers.
Ron keep up the good work!"

- A.K. Borough

“Ron was a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond in helping me sell my condo at the Carlton House through his extensive marketing efforts and his dedication to showing my unit, even on a minutes notice. His efforts helped me to sell my unit in a relatively short timeframe even though the market had significantly slowed down. I would not hesitate to recommend Ron as an agent representing the sale of your home.”

Christy McCabe

“Ron helped me purchase my home in the perfect location at the perfect time. After just a few months its value has already increased 18%! That’s unheard of in this economy. A truly exceptional agent. ”
