Did not respond to my inquiry in Somerset, Ellicott City, MD 21042.
I recently sold a house located off of Centennial Lane in Ellicott City that I've lived in for 7 years. I was searching for a rental house in Ellicott City to live in for a couple of years and found one on the Zillow website that I liked. I went with my two teenage kids to see the outside of the house after sending an email to her through zillow. Then we went to check the outside of the house and afterwards we decided to call the Real Estate Agent for more information about the house. Next day, I contacted the Agent and told her I was interested in renting the property and she said someone was already interested in renting it. Then I was told to call her back by next week. The Following week I called her back to check on the house again and she didn't check back so I left a voice mail with my name and phone number twice and an email twice but she never called or emailed back to me. After reading all the positive reviews about the agent I had high hopes in working with the agent but she turned out to be the worst agent I have worked with. I didn't receive a call nor an email from her so far. The only reason why I gave a two-star rating of local knowledge is because I don't know if she has great knowledge about this area or not. Overall I had a horrible experience with the so called "highly recommended" agent.

To Whom it May Concern, I have thought at great length about your review and I feel it is time to respond accordingly. You have a right to your opinion about everything, but I feel this review is unjustified. I have no idea who you are! I have had tons and tons of calls about a rental property I "had" for rent. If you emailed me I did respond, however I have a business email address and it very well could have ended up in your spam box, thus you never receiving anything. Calling me the worst agent you've ever worked with doesn't make any sense when we have never "worked" together. If I told you someone else was interested in renting it that means, basically it is "Under Contract" meaning someone else with their agent had the process already done and I was waiting on the landlord to make the final call. I am very sorry you had a "horrible" experience and I do wish you all the best in your search for a rental home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Glen Burnie, MD.
Hollie is the best agent I have ever done business with, or met for that matter. Her level of knowledge, professionalism, use of technology, and energy is without equal. I have completed five real estate transactions in the past 13 years, and Hollie is the only agent I went back to. In those transactions, I've asked one agent to transfer me to another realtor, and fired one outright, as I expect a lot from an agent. Out of the six agents I contracted with, Hollie is the only one I recommend.

Bought a home in 2013.
Hollie was by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. She was always up for our wishy washy ways, we must have changed our minds at least three times. She was always willing and open to show us homes wherever we wanted to go and her knowledge of each area was incredible. We would recommend anyone looking or selling to use Hollie, she was NOT disappoint you!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Highland, MD.
We had the pleasure of working with Hollie in 2012. She was recommended to us by a family friend. Hollie is a very proactive real estate agent. Her property assessments are frank and she is quick to disclose any concerns she may have especially those involving safety. She is adept at helping buyers with time constraints move quickly and thoroughly through the home buying decision process.

We never felt pushed to view properties for which we had no interest such as model town homes. She attentively listened to our preferences and guided us only to homes that interested us. She did not require any up front retainer fee like that which was demanded by at least one other real estate agent covering the same region.

Throughout the home inspection and closing process she made sure all requirements were being met. Since we had a VA loan, the loan approval process took longer than a conventional loan and the sellers grew nervous. She continually followed up with those persons responsible for each step of the process. She worked hard to maintain the confidence of the seller in our continued interest in the property and ability to close on the sale.

We would highly recommend Hollie to any home buyer or seller particularly to those seeking agents who are quick, proactive and have a high level of professional integrity. Having lived for over a year in the home Hollie helped us purchase, I can confidently state that I agree with her original assessment of our home. We are very happy with our home, its appreciated in value tremendously and we look forward to raising a family here.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Ellicott City, MD.
Hollie has been absolutely amazing during our home selling & buying process. We interviewed few agents because selling/buying a house is a huge commitment and you want to make sure you have the best person in your corner. Let's just say that after our interviews, no other agent was even in close to Hollie. We never felt pressured from Hollie to make a decision that wasn't right for us. We truly felt like she had our best interest at heart and that, while this is her job, she really wants you to find the right home for you no matter what price range you are in. Hollie is incredibly professional, always responding to calls and emails quickly. She has a deep network of people that she works with, so she was able to recommend a mortgage broker, an inspector, and a contractor that we absolutely love. She has a fun-loving nature and a great sense of humor. It was a pleasure working with Hollie and we highly recommend her, not just because she is a wonderful agent, but more importantly a wonderful person!

Thank you! We all worked harder together to get your home sold and in record time and for a greater amount than the week before and I am so glad you got the house in the area you wanted! It was worth all the work in the end.

Hollie is the ultimate professional. She keeps all you needs in mind whether you are in the market to buy or sell a home. I recommend her to everyone that I hear considering a move.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Columbia, MD.
We were very satisfied with Hollie. We were first time homebuyers and had no clue about the process. Hollie was very patient and helpful and took the time (almost two years) to help us find the perfect place. She was efficient, friendly and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend her expertise and have already. When we plan to sell we'll be seeing her again.

Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Ellicott City, MD.
Hollie Pakulla is an exemplary Real Estate agent. Her knowledge of the business is endless. What sets her apart from other agents, however, is the way that she combines her vast knowledge with a genuine interest in finding her clients the right home for their specific needs. When working with Hollie, you get a true sense that you are being taken care of and that your needs and concerns are her priority. She’s a true professional in every sense of the word

Hollie was excellent to work with, she knew the area we wanted to live in and took into consideration our budget. By doing so she found us just what we were looking for. We are pleased and should the need arise would work with her again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Laurel, MD.
Holly is very easy to work with - she is very patient during the hunt for a new home and even more patient during the negotiation phase - her frankness during both phases leaves you believing you have not been"SOLD" but have been educated so that you can make the best decision based on what you want and what she thinks you are looking for - the closing phase was seemless with holly available at all hours of the day to field questions and provide crucial information to facilitate a timely and problem free closing - her intricate knowledge of every portion of the home buying process left me impressed and stress free the ladder being a very pleasant surprise - I recommend her highly and believe that after one day of showings and an oppurtunity to test her industry knowledge and you will be hooked on the idea of having her help you find your next home as well as the home after that.
