Ratings & Reviews

Roxanne is the best real estate agent any individual or family can hire to help with their search of an ideal home. I was comfortable in my apartment for a while - but then I wanted to invest in my own house rather than paying rent to a landlord. I needed a larger home that was as maintenance free as a rented apartment. <br/><br/>Roxanne had an initial meeting with me and took diligent notes regarding specific needs in a home as well as my ability to make a down-payment and secure a mortgage. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines, web sites and real estate databases to quickly find a variety of homes for sale. <br/><br/>Very early she found a home that met all my initial requirements - and even more: 9 years later I live in the same house, but now with a wife and two kids - and still enough space for working from home. In nine years we only had minor repairs - apart from paint jobs. <br/><br/>A master in contract negotiations, Roxanne helped me win the contract of this house against eight more offers - and came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well. The seller even volunteered to fix the stove - which I was nor aware had a problem. <br/><br/>Roxanne knows the DC metropolitan area like the back of her hand. There is nothing that escapes her attention when it comes to property for sale in this area. <br/><br/>I found Roxanne to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if she was buying a house for herself. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Roxanne was honest about some minor changes that I needed to make in the house I was buying, and her advice worked like a charm. <br/><br/>I am pleased to recommend Roxanne to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Everybody who I recommended to her gave equally raving reviews. Makes me look good, too, in the eyes of my friends and colleagues. Roxanne is hands down the best in the business in my and their opinion and if I ever need to move again she will be my first choice in real estate agents.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Germantown, MD.

Roxanne was my agent for selling my house in Germantown. She met with me before I even had the house in shape to list, and was able to give me an idea of what I could sell the house for. She also was valuable in advising me on what I needed to do to get the house ready to list. She spent plenty of time visiting my house to get updates on my progress, which took several months. She had several open houses and spent a great deal of effort getting the word out that my house was for sale. It wasn't on the market for long!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Silver Spring, MD.

I can't write enough good things about Roxanne. She has been my agent on both the buyer and sellers side and her knowledge of the market, buying and selling process, and negotiation skills are superb. I was a first time home buyer and seller and she was able to lead me through the process professionally and also exhibited incredible patience with me and my lack of familiarity with the whole process. When I was selling my home in late 2014/early 2015, she worked closely with me to decide the best path forward to successfully sell my home for a price I was happy with. She was extremely knowledgeable, efficient, responsive and very hard working. She was invaluable for every aspect of the sales process, from preparing the home for the sale, staging, marketing, negotiating, finding licensed contractors, and closing. I highly recommend Roxanne.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Rockville, MD.

In a nutshell, Roxanne is a gem. She is responsive, knowledgeable, skilled at negotiating, and very warm. We felt we were in GREAT hands during the entire process. Between my husband and myself, we have purchased 6 homes across 4 states. Roxanne is hands down the best agent with whom we have worked!

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Gaithersburg, MD.

I contacted Roxanne through Zillow based on the reviews that were given by previous customers. I had tried many different realtors that were either unprofessional or that never returned my phone calls or emails. I was just hoping and praying that Roxanne would contact me. She responded to me within 20 minutes. In my opinion, that was very impressive. It was 4:40 on a SUNDAY.

She showed me some houses to get a feel of what I was looking for, but we both agreed that one home in particular would meet my family's needs. Being active duty military, having someone that you can trust and that responds to all of your questions and concerns is invaluable. People take good customer service for granted these days, but Roxanne was wonderful.

When I am looking to buy my first home, I am definitely going to use Roxanne. My 21 month old daughter adores her, and she NEVER talks to strangers.

I always felt well taken care of and had complete trust in Roxanne's expertise. I will definitely use Roxanne’s help again if I need to sell or rent my house. .

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

As I work through this process of purchasing a house, Roxanne has masterfully guided and assisted me at every step of the way, often beyond my expectations. She helped me understand the benefits associated with various neighborhoods, homestyles, types of sales, and features within the homes. Roxanne, explained every aspect of the offer process in detail in a most pleasant manner. I found that her expertise was invaluable in choosing the offer price and negotiating important aspects of the offer. She has continued to express keen interest in helping me obtain the best deal possible, usually in ways that require time and attention on her part. I'm extremely pleased to be so lucky to have the privilege of working with her and her associate Petra. They are a dynamic, energetic, dedicated and reputable duo. This experience has been so positive, that I might have to think about purchasing another home, just to relive the experience.

Bought a home in 2009.

Roxanne, and her colleague helped us to buy a property in Washington DC. They both were very knowledgable, research oriented, and responsive. Working with Roxanne was a great experience for me. Her professional dignity combined with the vast knowledge and skills made this real estate deal the most comfortable that I ever had.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2010 in Potomac West, Alexandria, VA.

Ms Draheim was an important part of the purchase of our home. She was extremely responsive and managed to provide first-rate support throughout the purchasing process. I really felt that she was part of the process, at all times, and she was happy to help and discuss our questions anytime when we uncertain. I definitely hope to need her services again sometime in the future, and I will recommend Ms Draheim without hesitation.
