Thank you so much, Mike. I guess driving up and down every road in Montgomery County 15 times a year over the past 20+ years has, by default, made me an expert. We’re also glad you enjoyed working with our network of professionals… they’ve been vetted over the years since they’re representing us. We look forward to getting together, soon, to share wine and laughs.

Bought a home in 2015 in Ilchester, Ellicott City, MD 21043.

Contacted us back once we applied for their expertise. They were very helpful, always answering questions and explaining the process of buying the house. Recommended their agent who was excellent with his response, help, patience and guidance through the whole process.

Thank you very much for the review of my team. Surrounding ourselves with top-notch team members is something we focus on all the time. Without a strong team, we wouldn't be as successful as we are today. The fact that you took the time to let us know how wonderful your experience was means a lot. We hope you enjoy your home for a very long time.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Silver Spring, MD.

I had a particularly complex and difficult transaction and Peggy Lyn put together a team of knowledgeable specialists that went beyond expectations in helping me to finally close the deal. Every member of her team was communicative, responsive and highly professional. I couldn't have asked for a better team. I would recommend them without reservation for any type of real estate transaction. They are top notch!

Thank you so much, Audrey. Selling a short sale is never, ever an easy process but, as you pointed out, we've assembled a team (both internally and externally) of professionals to help make it as smooth as possible. Yours took a bit longer :) than planned but at the end, we all rallied and made it happen. Thanks, again, for choosing me and trusting us to help you move on with your life.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Germantown, MD.

I can't say enough about how happy my husband and I are with Peggy Lyn. There is not a person that I know that is considering selling their home that I wouldn't recommend her to. In fact, after seeing the amazing job that she did with our home sale, my neighbor has already contacted her for listing this spring. She sold our home in the dead of winter, right over the holiday season, which we had always heard was a real estate lull. Well not for us! We had multiple showings every week. Our home was perfectly priced with the comps in our area but ours sold for just $2,000 under our asking price (in a buyer’s market!) and the other homes are STILL for sale. We got multiple offers on the same day and she was amazing at negotiating with the buyers to get us EVERY dollar for our home. Her open and honest communication was really what made us just fall in love. She was ALWAYS reachable and ALWAYS had an answer to any question we had. Even though our home wasn't as expensive as many of the homes she has sold, she always made us feel like we were her top priority, especially with staging and photography of our home. We truly couldn't have asked for more in a Realtor than what we got with Peggy Lyn. My husband and I both know that hiring her and her team was the best decision that we could have made.

Very flattering. So many agents are simply not educated enough to understand the best/worst times to list a home. In fact, the dead of winter is a wonderful time to list a home but we'll keep the reasons a secret. As a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) and with 25 years of experience, I always get my clients the most amount of money in the shortest period of time. I average 5% more money for my clients than the industry average. In addition, I pride myself in being honest and straightforward. A lot of agents are apprehensive to be honest because they either don't want to upset their clients or simply don't understand all the intricacies of a transaction. With nearly 100% of buyers finding their home online, staging/photos are critical. We exclusively use a partner based in Baltimore because he is the best. Yes, it costs us more in travel but it's worth every penny. Again, thanks for trusting us with the sale of your home. We really enjoyed working with you both.

Sold a home in 2011 in Ashton-Sandy Spring, Ashton, MD 20861.

Working with Peggy Lyn and Chris 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. In the end, our home sold within days of listing.

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. They always responded to questions no matter how complex or simple (even while on vacation). 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. 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.

Peggy Lyn and the Speicher Team really did make it easy. Although it is a tough situation to be in, their experience and willingness to work with me from beginning to end will never be forgotten.

Bought a home in 2011.

Peggy Lyn helped us buy our first home this past summer in Rockville and did an excellent job. She was always willing to meet us at houses we wanted to check out, even if it was very last minute. She was welcoming when our entire extended family wanted to join in on our house hunting adventures. She was pleasant to work with and really was so helpful, understanding and thorough during our process which was great since it was our first home buying experience and we weren't sure what we wanted. Overall a great agent with a lot of knowledge and she's very easy to get along with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Silver Spring, MD.

I am waiting for an update in the English language - so that it will contain words sufficient enough to describe my experience with Peggy Lyn and the Speicher Team. We were recently priviledged to have them list and sell our home and the experience could not have been better. From the first contact - through the settlement process, Peggy Lyn, Chris and the whole Speicher Team were, unbelievably responsive, incredibly professional, totally knowledgeable and informative..............I'm running out of superlatives to describe this experience. They listed and sold our house in a little over a month - which was almost too fast - - because it accelerated the process almost before we were ready to move out. I would recommend them over and over again, and challenge anybody to show me a better agent (Peggy Lyn), team (the Speicher Team) anywhere in the real estate industry. Thank you - Speicher Team - you are simply amazing!!

Chet... such an amazing post. Thank you (and Namu). I guess selling a home too fast can, in fact, be an issue for some :) We just want to thank you both for being great to work with. It's much easier to sell a home that's kept immaculate like yours was. We look forward to visiting you both in Japan.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $400K in Ellicott City, MD.

Peggy Lyn & Team made buying our new home a wonderful experience! We met Peggy Lyn through a family friend and were instantly impressed with her knowledge and expertise. My husband and I had a very long "must have" list and she was very patient with us through our entire home search. She took the time to truly understand our wants and needs and always made herself available for questions or last minute showings. Peggy Lyn provided us with trusted recommendations for a home inspector and title company as well. Overall, we would not have been happier with the Speicher Team's performance and would highly recommend them!

Helped me rent a Townhouse home in Olney, MD.

I am recommending Peggy Lyn Speicher and the Speicher team to anyone who asks!! Recently Peggy Lyn and the Speicher team helped me find a home to rent. Peggy Lyn and the Speicher team provided quality service. Peggy Lyn was always on time for appointments. Telephone calls and emails were returned quickly. Peggy Lyn was always professional and friendly. She listened and understood what I wanted and needed in a rental. Unlike past real estate agents I believe my goals were taken to heart by the entire Speicher team. It was evident that the Speicher team worked together. Definitly contact Peggy Lyn and the Speicher team regarding your real estate interests!!

Thank you, Dave. The key is listening. Until we fully understand a client’s needs, we aren’t able to help them achieve their goals. Please say hi to the family for us.
