Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Forest Hill, MD.
Trent and his partner, Stacey Ingerson, were key in our move. The knowledge they brought with them was crucial when negotiating the sale of our home. They were always available to answer questions or research necessary information to help me get top dollar in addition to making suggestions for the staging of our home. We were under a short time line and extremely stressed out. Stacey talked us off the ledge several times and calmed our frazzled nerves! She was the best!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Remington, Baltimore, MD.
I worked with Trent and Stacey on purchasing my first home. I was looking for something that needed some work but not a full rehab. The expertise they showed in helping to determine what needed too much work, and what was doable on my budget with time constraints was extremely helpful in making my decision. Once I purchased the home they were able to recommend local contractors at a good price for the things I could not do such as having my floors refinished. As a first time home buyer the advice I received throughout the process was invaluable and I would recommend this team to anyone I know looking to purchase a home in the Baltimore area!
Trent was an excellent and patient real estate agent. He helped us narrow down the type of house we wanted, what would be a smart investment for our budget, and the areas that seemed to fit our needs and wants. Trent must have shown us upwards of twenty houses, and ultimately, we purchased the perfect house with his help. Throughout the negotiation and contract process, Trent and his team walked us through the various steps since it was our first home-buying experience. They were also able to recommend reputable inspectors and contractors to us that allowed us to get to closing as soon as possible. Whenever issues arose, Trent dealt quickly and efficiently with the other real estate agent and the seller. Trent and his team even helped suggest contractors they worked with in the past to help us with renovations after we closed on the house! They couldn't be better, and their knowledge of Baltimore and patience really impressed us. We will absolutely enlist Trent's help when we sell our house!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Upper Fells Point, Baltimore, MD.
Trent is a fantastic agent. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a house. He understood the market, made a lot of great suggestions and recommendations. More importantly, he gave great perspective when making decisions. I highly trust his opinion.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Upper Fells Point, Baltimore, MD.
Trent KNOWS Fells Point/Butchers Hill/Patterson Park/Canton. He is familiar with all the neighborhoods, and now that we've moved here, it is great to see that it is all genuine. We see Trent all about town, volunteering, at charity events, etc. He has a great eye for a great house, he knows all the developers around and is clear about the ones that are honest and build/rehab top quality homes. He takes too much pride in his work to market anything not of high standards. most importantly, you can trust Trent. 11 months after we moved into our house, he is still around, and a friend!
Trent was an outstanding agent. He was very knowledgable about the market in our area and helped us to price our house appropriately for the market. Our house sold within three days of being on the market under Trent's guidance. Trent was outstanding with giving us contacts to help the post-inspection process go smoothly. I would highly recommend Trent and hope I have the opportunity to work with him again!
I have known Trent Waite for over a decade, and have worked with him in several capacities over the years -- as a broker, as an equity investor and partner, as a project manager and as a design consultant. My experience with him across a dozen projects has been first class. I have consummate trust in Trent, both in terms of his integrity and professional expertise in all areas pertaining to real estate. Without hesitation, I recommend Trent's services as a broker and authority on Baltimore reat estate.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Patterson Park, Baltimore, MD.
My wife (fiance at the time) and I were first time home buyers when Trent helped us find our first home. He is very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods in Baltimore. He made sure the home we purchased was finished and move in ready before our move in day. Not only does he know the in and outs of buying a home but knows a large number of quality contractors and finance people in the area as well. We continue to use him as resource for any home maintenance or remodeling. My wife and I refer to him as a "friend" not our "real estate agent"
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Brewers Hill, Baltimore, MD.
Trent's understanding of the marketplace as well as his reputation in the community made the process of selling my house very comforting. I would recommend Trent to anyone who is buying or selling a home in Baltimore and surrounding areas.
Working with Trent was really a great experience. He brought a lot of local knowledge and insight into the house hunting process. He was very good at listening to our needs to help us find a house that was the right fit. Using his knowledge of the different neighborhoods around the city, he helped us find some great options that we would not have originally considered.
Once Trent started working for us, he helped us find the right house and close the deal in only 3 weeks.
