Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Gaithersburg, MD.
Chris and his team delivered excellent service to us during our house hunt and purchase. He was always willing to meet with us, show us other listings, answer questions, give advice, and even watch my toddler son when I needed to walk through a house. We met Chris when he showed us a listing of his team that we wanted to see, and he became our agent. We would highly recommend that you contact Chris and his very responsive and professional team.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Rockville, MD.
My wife and I were lucky enough to stumble upon Chris and Peggy Lynn over a year ago while looking at single family homes in the Rockville/Olney area. We ended up buying the very first home that they showed to us....but the purchase was made a full year later (after the home went off and back on the market). During that full year, Chris took the time to show us dozens of other homes in the area. We were pretty picky about what we wanted to see and Chris was always extremely accommodating. Although we worked with the Speicher Team for a full year during our house search, their courtesy and willingness to help never declined. I feel like a lot of agents would have given up on us!
While Chris was definitely knowledgeable about the area and the home buying process, his responsiveness was definitely his #1 quality. If I could have given more than 5 stars for responsiveness, I would have. I probably sent Chris over 100 e-mails during the whole process and his response to each one was received minutes later. Even last week, which was months after closing, I e-mailed him several questions and he answered within minutes. It's hard to find professionals with his combination of courtesy, knowledge, and responsiveness.
The Speicher Team showed us all kinds of homes, including short sales and foreclosures. The house we ended up buying was a foreclosure. Chris was able to help us by explaining the foreclosure process and what we needed to watch out for. I would definitely recommend Chris, Peggy Lynn, and the rest of the Speicher Team to anyone in the area!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $625K in Olney, MD.
I want to thank Peggy Lyn for all that she did for us when we were selling and buying a new home last year. I have to start of stating that Peggy Lyn and her team are hands down the best real-estate team in the area! I highly recommend her and her team, they truly are exceptional. Here is our story:
Our townhouse in Olney was rapidly becoming too small for our expanding family and we were looking to make a move into a single family home in the area. We were introduced to Peggy Lyn through a trusted friend and quickly realized that she was a rock star – she knew the market well and was able to set realistic expectations for the adventure we were about to take. After our first consultation w/Peggy Lyn, she advised us to find a house that we wanted to move into ASAP because she was going to sell our townhouse very quickly. Being the skeptic that I am, in not so hot market (at the time), and against her recommendation, I asked her to sell my house first then we will look for a new one. The last thing I could do was hold two house notes at the same time. Well, let’s just say I turned out to be the not so smart one. After following Peggy Lyn’s expert advice on staging the house (it looked incredible), we put it on the market on a Wednesday. It was under contract by Friday. She had sold it in two days!! Now the fun started. We needed a place to move into, fast. Peggy Lyn had the foresight to push our closing on the townhouse out far enough to give us the time to find our ideal house. We had our hearts set on a house in a great neighborhood and we really thought we had the inside track to get it – unfortunately, it didn’t happen. Peggy Lyn then spent the next 6 weeks knocking on doors, turning over every rock, tracking down every lead and showing us every house that came on the market that met our criteria. I will admit, we were not the easiest clients in the world to deal with, we knew what we wanted and we were not going to settle for just anything. Peggy Lyn never once let our pickiness slow her down. She was determined to find us a house and she didn’t let anything get in the way of that goal. Needless to say, she got a bead on a house on a great street in an awesome neighborhood that was going to go on the market soon. She got us in to see the house a couple of days before it was listed and we loved it. We ran into some difficult sellers and at several points in the negotiations it looked like a deal was not going to happen. This is where Peggy Lyn really earned my unwavering loyalty. Buying and selling a home is very emotional and we had just spent 8 weeks searching, viewing, bidding, and losing out on houses and we were at our wits end. Peggy Lyn never gave up on us and kept us focused on the big picture – getting into our new home. She brought to bear her extensive industry expertise and guided us to a successful close. We couldn’t be happier with the services that Peggy Lyn and the entire Speicher team provided. If I ever decide to move again, the only person I will ever use to sell and buy a new home is Peggy Lyn.
Easy to work with

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Silver Spring, MD.
Chris and the Speicher Team were such a joy to work with. I met Chris after beginning my home search with his wife, Peggy Lyn. Chris stepped in on occasions when Peggy Lyn was not available so I never had to miss seeing a home I was interested in. I was immediately at ease with him and I feel like he quickly learned what I was looking for in a home. He often worked behind the scenes to prepare documents and provide additional information that helped me as a first time buyer.
The Speichers are amazing at what they do and they talk about ways they are constantly updating their skills so you know you're in good hands when working with them. They are so accessible, using the latest technology to find listings and keep in touch, that I never felt like I was competing with their other clients for their time. I always had access to the most up to date listing information via tools they provided.
Chris provided some much needed comic relief during the stress of trying to find my first home in a competitive market. Both he and Peggy Lyn made the process genuinely enjoyable. Through their combined talent and efforts, I now have a fantastic new home.
The Speicher Team is top notch!! Thank you Chris for all your help getting our property sold! Both Chris and Peggy Lyn helped us in getting the house sold. They gave great advice on staging the home and any touches we needed to make it look the best. Even in a unpredictable market, the Speicher Team was able to get a contract within two weeks of it going on the market! We are so pleased and definitely recommend them to anyone wishing to buy or sell!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Wheaton, MD.
We came into the home-buying process with a very specific list of must-haves, a hard cap on price -- and a deadline.Chris and Peggy found us the perfect place and got us in to see it before it was formally listed. From offer to closing, Peggy and Chris were responsive, respectful and patient. We feel like we got a great deal!
The Speicher team is first class all the way. They turn a very stressful time into a very enjoyable experience. Their flexibility, professionalism and knowledge of the area truly make selling and buying a home very easy. However it doesn't stop with them. Their contacts and professional networking allowed every step of the entire process to go seamless. They pride themselves on providing a top of the line product and they align themselves with those alike.

Mike, thanks for the great review of our service. We demand excellence from everyone who represents our team and it looks like it's working out perfectly! We look forward to wine and good times very soon.
Working with Chris and Peggy Lyn Speicher was a great experience. They listed and sold our house and worked as our agent to purchase a new house. Even though they are friendly and light-hearted, they know the business and worked fiercely and tirelessly to represent us as their clients. Before we decided to put our house on the market, they came prepared with comps and realistic pricing and timeline suggestions. They provided a kind but realistic assessment on what needed to be done to put our house on the market and sell it quickly. They also employ high-end tactics such as professional photography and aggressive marketing to further highlight our homes desirable attributes.
As a buyer's agent, they took us to countless homes which gave us a good idea of what was on the market and helped us make a final determination about a home that we thought may be "the one."
They provided sage advice on many aspects of the process for both selling our home and buying another. They helped us navigate through challenging and potentially contentious situations. And lastly, they thankfully always had constructive suggestions on how to deal with issues that arose and at times took the liberty of finding solutions for us.
The services of the Speicher Team were invaluable.

You’re so sweet, Heather – thank you for the review. I will echo the sentiments of Peggy Lyn: You guys were the key to getting your home under contract in five days; we’re just glad you were open to our pricing and staging suggestions. As for your new home… it’s going to be a wonderful place to raise a family and we couldn’t be more happy for you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
This was a big deal to me!! Chris and the Team understood that and did everything in their power to get me through this transition. Chris was always there for me, from the beginning to the final signature at closing. His experience and guidance helped me make the best possible decisions regarding the sale of the home. Any questions or problems I had, he was right there and expained all of the options available. The team was flexible in terms of working around my busy schedule and finding time to do all the necessary things it took to successfully sell my home. I made the right choice!!

Smitty! I was honored that, after going to school together a long, long time ago, you trusted me to help you. I was honored to help you settle the estate. I know it was a very tough time in your life and I am so, so glad I was able to help you through the process from beginning to end. So, I thank you my friend.
