Showed home in 2012 in Cross Country, Pikesville, MD 21208.

One word to describe Margaret Rome is AMAZING! You absolutely want this woman as your Realtor. She's got a wonderful warm personality, full of energy and highly professional. She's a total go-getter who produces results fast. My husband and I are SO grateful we found her!! We didn't know all the ins and outs involved with selling a home,and Margaret educated us on our options and walked us through the process. We would have been lost without her. She sold our home for us in 2005 when we moved out of state for a better job, and in the past month showed us homes as we were thinking of coming back to the Baltimore area. Her knowledge, professionalism, patience, and negotiation skills are beyond excellent! Her work ethic is outstanding! I honestly do not think there could be a better realtor than Margaret in the Baltimore area!

Sold a home in 2012.

A five-star experience all the way! Margaret Rome knows the business like no other Realtor in the area. Equally important, she is a pleasure to work with. She's incredibly responsive, smart, and supportive. She has a warm, gracious personality, but she also knows how to draw the line and get tough with the other guys when necessary! It's a difficult market now for sellers, especially for condos, but Margaret never gave up on selling mine. She also kept me apprised of developments during the selling process. Want your emails answered lightning-quick? Margaret's the one! I would recommend Margaret Rome without reservation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Baltimore, MD.

Margaret helped me buy my house in 2009, so she was the first person I called when I was relocating in 2012 and had to sell my home. We were under contract in 30 days, and during the sales process, I moved out of state for my new job. Margaret was great about meeting the buyers and third party reps for inspections, appraisals, etc. She even volunteered to meet the moving company at my house so they could work up a cost estimate for me.

She kept me in the loop during the entire process, and I never doubted that she was on "my side" during the sale. It was sad to have to sell the house, but Margaret made it as smooth a transition as possible!

It was a pleasure working with you to find the perfect house back in 2009. It was sad selling this perfect home just recently. But again you were a delight and did a fabulous job of keeping the house show ready. You are definitely the neatest and most organized moving person I've seen in a long time. Wishing you much luck and success in your new job and in finding your new home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $50K in McElderry Park, Baltimore, MD.

I owned a rental rowhome in Baltimore City that I had been trying to sell for three years without even one showing. I was going through a very well known agency that was well established in the area. After 6 months with the new agents, I obtained Margaret Romes number. She was such a positive helpful agent, willing to try anything to get the property sold. The property was not in the best of neighborhoods but that did not deter her in any way. She was determined to help me (thank goodness!) Within a few months she called me with an offer and we settled within a month. I was thrilled with the entire process. Margaret truly cares about her clients and is fantastic at keeping you up to date and informed.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Westminster, MD.

Margaret is a hands down the best agent I've ever worked with in selling or buying a home. She not only listens, is patient and professional, but she thinks outside the box and is superiorly creative in her approach. We listed a pretty challenging home located on a large amount of land. We were concerned about the sale in this market, which as you know, isn't what it use to be. With her talents, perseverance and large amount of contacts, we were able to sell our custom home. We were NOT merely placed on the MLS listings, had a sign installed and left to wait for a buyer to come along, which I have experienced with other realtors in the past. Margaret Rome is a genuine top notch agent who truly cares about your needs, and offers so much more than I can even mention here. She arranged for custom floor plans to be included in the full color multipage brochure, a fabulous professional photographer and wide spread internet exposure. Without her stelar negotiations, impeccable timing and ambitious nature, I'm convinced we'd never have sold our home. One conversation with Margaret and you'll see. In my opinion of all the Realtors I've ever worked with and interviewed (bought and sold 3 homes) she has a unique offering that would be difficult to match.

Bought a Single Family home in 1999 for approximately $625K in Owings Mills, MD.

I bought my home and other properties with Margaret's Brillance. She is more than an agent! She helped me like I was a daughter. Her expertise, professionalism, and knowledge are priceless.

The day we met I said I want big, fenced in yard and a pool for CHEAP. 45 days later, I moved into my dream home.

Thanks again Margaret!

Sold a home in 2010.

My mother's property had been on the market for two years. It had been listed with 5 agents. Margaret told us she would sell the property in a month and that is exactly what she did. She is the only realtor I would recommend to family and friends. She is the consumate realtor, knowledgable, determined, and supremely competent. Her people skills are superb! We are very grateful to Margaret. When the time comes for our daughter and son-in-law to begin looking for their first home, Margaret is the only realtor we would trust to look out for their best interest and find them the perfect home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $450K in Ten Hills, Baltimore, MD.

In 2007, I wanted to sell my home and buy something larger. Recommended by a friend, Margaret Rome quickly became an indispensible partner. To the home I was selling, she recommended only improvements that would increase the value. The house was sold at the listed price of $199k in less than a month. Now I needed a place to live. First, Margaret exhaustively interviewed my family and I on our needs (must have, like to have, etc.). Then she went to work finding outstanding properties that met our wishes. As we viewed these homes, Margaret was processing our reactions and quietly readjusting to show us what we really wanted; not what we said we wanted. As you might have guessed, the house that we loved and eventually bought was not at all what we had described in initial interviews. Thanks to Margaret’s insights, patience and skillful negotiations, we ended up in a stately 1920's home in an old neighborhood of giant oaks and fantastic neighbors. I can honestly say that Margaret is one of the most knowledgeable, hardworking, and gifted professionals I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I recommend her highly to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.

You two were so much fun to work with. I loved selling the small stone rancher with all your handy improvements. When it was time to purchase...It was fun to read your wish list and then watch your reactions in various homes. Your head was telling you to buy a certain home but your heart told you otherwise. I think you made a wise decision. Your new home is lovely!

Sold a home in 2007.

Margaret Rome is the finest Real Estate agent in Maryland. If you need to buy or sell a home, I could not imagine anyone doing a better job for you. I have bought 3 homes and sold 2 with Margaret, and will always be using her in the future.

You are my very favorite family. First we sold the townhouse, then bought and sold the stone rancher and finally your beautiful new house in a neighborhood with lots of young families with children. You have made a wonderful new home for you and the girls!

Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $300K in Baltimore, MD.

From the first sit-down to the final closing we felt as if we were the only people in the world on Margaret's client list. I know a bit about real estate and her professionalism and ability to make it look easy are true testament to her abilities. We sold two houses in one month thanks to Maragaret's knowledge. Even though we have moved out of the area we continue to send anyone we know to Margaret. When she decides to take on a property for a friend or family member we can breathe easier knowing they will be exceptionally well taken care of.

I loved working with you and Bruce to sell both homes. You are a master at putting a home in show condition. You staged it and then we held special opens. You and your friends held huge signs on nearby corner intersections to drive traffic to the house. What fun! I do miss you and hope you are doing well.
