No lines. No sales pitches. No bologna.  Just sincere, informed and experienced personal advocacy for my clients' home searches. That's my approach to client service in real estate.  I always say, "I don't SELL houses. Houses sell themselves. I provide ADVOCACY, INFORMATION and STRONG REPRESENTATION." 

I take pride in my approachability, my gift of being a great listener and my ability to educate clients conscientiously and objectively. I strongly believe that the home buying process should be exciting and positive; my best efforts are engaged to make this experience seem "effortless"! **Just read the endorsements that my clients have written!**

I consider myself well educated in the architectural & building history of Baltimore area homes and can provide information & observations of a home to Buyer clients that many agents may not be able to. I stay on top of current market, home design & "green" trends that can be of additional value to Seller clients when preparing their home for sale.

Question: "Are you TECH SAAVY, Rachael?" 
Answer: "Absolutely!" 
The only real estate practice I KNOW is internet-based. While print marketing and advertising may work for some micro-regions or specific neighborhoods, my marketing tools expose my listings to well over 250+ national (and even some international ) real estate search engines! All emails come to my phone, so I don't miss any client inquiry!

I had also been engaged as the primary Real Estate Photographer for a highly successful real estate partnership for many years and consider myself an accomplished and artistic property photographer. Real estate photography usually comes at an added cost. For my clients, however, it is simply part of my services!

Drop me a line and let's talk about what we may be able to accomplish together!

Ratings & Reviews

Rachael was the best thing that could have happened to my fiancee and I. She helped us through every part of the process and always stayed friendly and truthful. We're now living in our first house and I truthfully can say we couldn't have done it with out her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Baltimore, MD.

I could not have asked for a better realtor to assist me in buying my first home! Rachael worked with me every step of the way from the first showing to finally finding my dream home. She was extremely accommodating to my busy schedule and always made herself available to show houses upon request. As I searched for a house, Rachael was sure to keep me informed of new listings and to offer her professional insight. I felt as though she really took the time to understand what was important to me, and what I was looking for in a house. She was quick to respond to any emails, texts, and calls and always had an answer to any questions that I had. The time between putting in a contact and settlement, Rachael completely took control of organizing the process and made sure that I had everything done that I needed and that things were progressing as needed. She stayed in contact with the sellers agent and was always able to give me updates with how things were going. Overall, I couldn't be happier with how smoothly the transaction went and I largely have Rachael to thank. Rachael's professionalism, industry knowledge, and upbeat attitude make her a delight to work with. I would highly reccommend Rachael when deciding to buy or sell your home.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Lutherville Timonium, MD.

I decided to put my house on the sales market because I was getting married. Rachael was recommended by a relative of my fiancĂ©. We had our first telephone discussion within a few days, followed by a meeting at my house where Rachael did a thorough inspection of the interior and exterior. We talked about what to expect, the current real estate activity in my area, and her approach to selling a house. She came up with the plan for marketing my house specifically. We talked about a listing price. Rachael made very good recommendations about sprucing up my house to make it more marketable. After she took very nice pictures of the house, we went live with the listing. I had offers within 4 days, and ultimately accepted an offer in 7 days. Rachael was very thorough in her explanations of the buyer inspection process. I agreed to make certain repairs as a result of the inspections. Rachael was at my house for the inspections, identified and lined up repairs for me, and coordinated final inspections. She responded very quickly to all of my questions, even late at night. We settled on the originally scheduled date. No delays. In the end, I got everything I asked for, without a lot of stress. Selling a house takes a huge commitment of time, and Rachael made the process extremely manageable, especially with a busy work schedule and wedding planning. She was great. I have already decided to have her represent me when we buy our next house, and she would be the first agent I'd recommend to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a house.  More Less
