Angela Smoot & Nancy Grasman

Sales Associates

MEET ANGELA

 

I began my real estate career 17 years ago–right after I purchased a new construction home from a small custom builder in Warrenton, Virginia.  The builder and his sales personnel liked my interest and enthusiasm for their new construction so much that they offered me a job in a model home as a sales associate!  I thoroughly enjoyed helping potential buyers learn the different models/floor plans of the builder and the standard and optional features that came with the homes.

During the same time, my mother, Nancy Grasman, was beginning to build her real estate business as well as her reputation in the industry; she affiliated with Coldwell Banker in Fairfax, Virginia.  Because she was a top-producing real estate agent and her business was continuing to grow, she asked if I’d be interested in working with and for her as her transaction coordinator.

Having earned my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration/Marketing, I felt real estate would be a great fit for me and an excellent business opportunity.  Excitedly, in 2004, I joined on board and worked the backchannels for Nancy’s real estate business–processing contracts and other paperwork, ordering inspections, tracking contingency timelines, helping with the marketing of new listings, and more.

In 2009, I became a licensed realtor with Coldwell Banker to assist Nancy with her growing number of clients, and Nancy and I officially became a Mother-Daughter real estate team–The Grasman Group LLC now known as The Smoot Grasman Group LLC!

Whether you are a first-time or a seasoned home buyer, owning a home is one of the most important aspects of providing for a family or for yourself.  My husband and I adopted our two sons from Taiwan.  Giving them a home in which to grow up and flourish in the community, neighborhood, and local school system was and still is very important to me.  Consequently, I enjoy helping other people find the perfect fit for themselves too!

Being successful in real estate takes consistency and determination.  By running Marathons (I have finished the Marine Corp Marathon in Washington, DC on several occasions) and teaching indoor cycling at the Old Town Athletic Campus in Warrenton has also helped also me develop those traits.  I will work hard and consistently for you to help you realize your dream of home ownership!

MEET NANCY

I grew up on a fruit farm in Ludington, Michigan.  Working on our farm taught me a good work ethic.  Because of my work ethic, I will work diligently for you—whether you are a seller or a buyer or both—to provide you with best possible real estate experience!

I married my high school sweetheart and because of his career in the US Secret Service, we moved several times early in our marriage.  With each move, we had to rely on an experienced real estate agent to help us find a home.  Consequently, I know how important it is for a realtor to have integrity, to be honest, and to have the clients’ interests at the heart of everything she does.

In college, I earned a Bachelor’s of Business Education and a Master’s of Business Administration; I was a business teacher for just over 20 years.  My last 15 years of teaching were in Fairfax County Public Schools where I taught Accounting and Information Systems in Chantilly and Centreville High Schools.  I learned to set goals, to train students, and to get along with many types of different personalities and learning styles.  These skills have transferred over to real estate.  I can guide my buyers and sellers smoothly through a real estate transaction—whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned homeowner.

Teaching was a convenient career while my raising my two daughters.   However, I always wanted to own my own business and put my MBA to work.  Therefore, when my daughters were in college, I earned my real estate license and started my real estate business.  I affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, which is the number one real estate company in the country.

I have been a realtor with Coldwell Banker for 20 years.  I have built a reputation on professionalism, ethics, and a sincere desire to help families realize the American dream—home ownership!

"We worked with Angela five years ago to buy the house that we just sold with her help in October, 2020. Angela is the consummate professional. Her knowledge of the industry is vast, her communication skills excellent, her dedication and commitment to the sale/purchase is boundless. She worked with us to stage the house so that any buyer can come in and see how the space will fit in their lives. The feedback we received from the showings were all very positive and supported her goal. She did extensive research in the comps, as our house was a bit of an outlier in our neighborhood, and she was spot on the money -- literally. She consistently and always made time for us and we never felt ignored, or prioritized over others. The entire process was smooth, and an absolute pleasure. We picked all five stars for a rating, but if we could give 100 stars, we would -- many times over. There's no doubt who's helping us find a new home. Angela is amazing!"

"The Grasman Group helped my husband and I purchase our first home. They helped take nail biting stress out buying a home by walking us through every step. They explain complex information in a way that actually makes sense, as well as they take the time to walk through every single piece of paper you lay eyes on. The Grasman Group attended our home inspection, which made the negotiations a little easier since they had first hand experience with the issues. Also, they have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to home items I wouldn't even think to look at, such as how the house is plumbed. If they weren't already amazing enough, the Grasman Group helped us find plumbers after we purchased our home. They went above and beyond by staying informed on how the plumbing work was going to ensure our satisfaction. Hopefully we won't need to move for a while, but when we do, we'll be using the Grasman Group again. They're terrific and very knowledgeable people."

"I had the privilege of working with Angela to buy my new home in Warrenton, VA! She was the absolute best. This was my second home purchase and it is extremely hard to find a realtor who always has your best interest at hand and is an advocate for you while also truly understanding what you are looking for in a home. Angela helped me find my dream and, hopefully forever home. I am very grateful for her non-stop communication throughout the entire process and making everything so easy for me as the buyer. She went above and beyond throughout the entire process! If you are looking to purchase or sell a home in the Northern Virginia area, I definitely recommend you reach out to Angela Smoot. She is not only knowledgeable and credible but extremely passionate all while making you feel comfortable and at ease during a big life decision! Thank you for everything you did for me - I am so appreciative! "

"Our house sold in one week at full price. This was not by accident - the assistance we received in getting the house ready for the market and resources to help us were wonderful. The house was staged by Nancy and Angela for the best impact. Marketing materials and efforts were excellent. But it didn't stop there. After the contract was written they were invaluable in helping us work through everything that came up to get to the final closing - far above and beyond what I would have expected. This is the second house we've sold and I never expected the level of expertise and support we got. I should say they helped us purchase our current home and that was a smooth process as well. Highly recommend!"
