Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Arlington Heights, Arlington, VA.
Maggie went above and beyond in helping us sell a home in DC and purchase another in Northern Virginia. We thought our sale was going to be difficult, given that we had purchased at the height of the bubble, but Maggie’s ideas for affordable improvements and staging, together with her great marketing of the listing, made all the difference. Maggie also took the time to get to know us personally and this made the process of buying our new house smooth and even fun - lots of laughs along the way. Although we asked her to show us many houses, Maggie was always ready to keep looking when we weren’t sure we had found the perfect match. And when we did find "the one", she negotiated a great deal for us. Maggie is a consummate professional and we have no reservations about recommending her and using her again in the future. - Bonnie Richards

We had a terrific experience working with Angela and highly recommend using her. We used Angela as a buyer’s agent and as seller’s agent. With our family growing quickly, we decided that we needed a bigger house. Having lived in this area for a long time, we had pretty set ideas about what we were looking for and knew it was probably going to take a long time to find that very special house that we would want to raise our family in. She was entirely patient and never pressured us at all. She was extraordinarily accommodating about meeting us to look at a house whenever there was one we had interest in. In part, we were educating ourselves about different neighborhoods, etc., but Angela never made us feel like we were wasting her time. She had good insights that she shared as we looked at house after house for over a year, and she made the process genuinely fun.
When we finally found “the” house, Angela was fantastic with all aspects of getting it
and handling everything to get to the closing. Angela was equally adept when it came to selling our house. The sales price we chose with Angela’s advice was exactly right. We accepted a full price contract within about two days of the open house. In the weeks that followed, Angela assisted us in addressing issues raised in the home inspection and appraisal and led us through the process to the closing. When we had concerns or questions, Angela was right there with answers and solutions.
In a nutshell, Angela and the team supporting her were terrific. Angela was always
professional, helpful, very responsive and an all around delight to work with. We highly recommend that you work with Angela!

My husband and I were super impressed with the knowledge and service that Maggie provided during our search for a home in Montgomery County – especially since we began our search while we were still living overseas! Maggie provided us with an incredible amount of information about various areas in Montgomery County. She also created custom MLS property searches based on school districts and other factors that we had identified, and we received daily updates on available properties. As we found properties we thought might work for us, Maggie would visit each of them and send us a detailed report of the “pros” and “cons” along with additional photos of particularly attractive or unattractive features. Great service. By the time we actually arrived in the U.S., we already had a good feel for the inventory and prices available in our neighborhood of choice. Maggie took us on several tours of likely properties and we quickly found the one that we knew we wanted to call home. It was in putting together the offer on our chosen property that Maggie’s expertise became particularly apparent. She explained in detail how every aspect of our offer would look from the seller’s point of view, and how we could make our offer most appealing while minimizing any risk of overpaying. Our offer was the winning offer in a multiple bid scenario – fantastic! We love our new home and we recommend Maggie very highly. If she is your buyer’s agent, you can count on her to be thorough, savvy, and fun to work with. Call her!

As a local myself, I had no need for expertise for "local knowledge", so I can't rate Angela higher than "extensive", but she knows Silver Spring and Bethesda well - that much I know. The process she used was VERY automated and easy to use. She was VERY responsive and always within reach. We had no negotiations with the buyer, or I am sure I would have rated her five stars. As it was, we got a $500 break on a small leak near the back stairs of the property we bought and that was MORE than we expected to get - she is the one that procured that financial break for us. The entire home buying process with Angela was as smooth and as stress free as buying a house could be. From start to finish we closed/settled within 30 days. She answered every one of our questions and when I as a buyer (of a second home for rental purposes) asked questions that only I could answer, she very professionally and objectively helped me help myself - in other words, she did not humor me or tell me things I hoped to hear, but always kept me focused on facts and market based realities. THIS is a true testament to her professionalism and also speaks volumes to her character. Lastly, as past President for 8 years of our neighborhood association,I have come in contact with a lot of realtors - she is by far one of the nicest, most knowledgeable and helpful I have run across.
