Team reviews

Brian's knowledge of the Ellicott City and nearby areas is very impressive. He is very upfront, detail oriented and easy to work with. After an unsuccessful attempt to sell our property last year, My wife and I decided to go with Brian, primarily motivated by his phenomenal sales record in our locality. Brian helped us with careful staging tips, suggested some necessary repair work and provided other helpful information before we listed the house. All of those preparations along with professional grade photography of our property certainly helped in getting an amazing volume of traffic in the next couple of weeks. We eventually got an offer and sold to the first potential buyer who walked in on the first day our house was listed. I should also mention that the process from getting the offer to closing was also very smooth. Thanks to the knowledgeable associates of Brian who helped us deal with each one of the complex and time-demanding items like inspections/repair work/appraisals etc. that every seller has to go through. I highly recommend Brian and his team.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Crofton, MD.

Michelle Langan was our realtor and she did a tremendous job in finding us our home. She was responsive, personable, energetic and great to work with. We recommend her and anyone from the team.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Elkridge, MD.
Primary point of contact: Michelle Langan

We were so lucky to meet Brian and his team! We rented one of Brian's properties for almost 2 years and were very impressed by both his professionalism and the quality of his work. He was ALWAYS available and overall great to work with. He was very accommodating in our search for a house, and willing to work with us and our schedule. When it was time to buy a house, Brian recommended we work with Michelle Langan. We couldn't be happier with his recommendation. Michelle is very knowledgeable, very sweet and very responsive - exactly what you need in a realtor. We found a house in a very short period time, and had our closing done in less than a month. Michelle really helped us throughout the entire process. My husband and I would recommend Brian Pakulla and Michelle Langan to anyone, without any hesitation! I hope to work with both of them again when its time to sell our first home. Thanks for everything!

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

Brian and his team were most professional, and above all, most responsive to all our questions and made selling our home of 27 years a painless experience.

If we had a question about anything we could call Brian anytime and if per chance he was not available, his assistant, Kristin was always available to help us or get back to us with an answer.

Brian sent a wonderful pair of photographers to take pictures of our home and put them into a virtual tour of the inside and outside of the property into many local free sites for people to see. This prompted many people coming into our home and resulted in the sale of our property. During the sale process we needed some repairs and Brian was able to direct us to some very capable professionals who incidentally were very reasonable and reliable.

We will certainly recommend Brian and his team (and have done so already) because we know our friends and family members could not find a better, more reliable and sincere group to work with!

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Ellicott City, MD.

Brian was outstanding to work with. He was responsive and understanding, and he had a ton of knowledge about our neighborhood and what it would take to sell our home and achieve our goals. Sure enough, we went under contract in two days and closed in less than a month for our full asking price. He made the process simple and easy.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Riverside, Baltimore, MD.

We have used Brian and his group in our last two home sales and our last purchase. Brian and his team are very knowledgable and professional. And best of all, always on top of things. All three negotiations and closings went off without a hitch. It is nice to know the realtor you are working with is thorough, dependable, and helpful. I highly recommend Brian!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Baltimore, MD.

Brian and his team were simply exceptional. My wife and I have very high expectations when it comes to customer service and Brian and his team well exceeded those. The professionalism and peace of mind he provided us was more than appreciated. One of his strongest attributes in my opinion was the ability to clearly lay out the process and give you a clear idea of what to expect. Selling a home can be one of the most stressful things possible and he did a great job of easing our anxiety through the process. Regarding the professionalism, Brian's team were always responsive and willing to help out with any questions. Most importantly we never felt pressured or felt as if we didn't have "a say" in the process. From the onset we felt that he was in our corner. He provided a lot of industry knowledge and insight on the best way to sell OUR home. That's important in this tough market today. I typically don't do many recommendations, but Brian was really amazing from his initial presentation to the final closing. If you are looking for a professional team to sell your home. I highly recommend Brian Pakulla and his team

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Columbia, MD.

Brian and his assistant, Kristin, did a wonderful job in marketing our former home. Brian ensured that there were professionally taken pictures of the house on Brian's website and on quite a few other websites. He also held an open-house in order to attract customers. Brian let us know what the entire process would entail. He and Kristin kept us informed as to progress in a very timely manner, and they were always readily available to answer questions. Our home sold very quickly. With Brian's help as an advisor and intermediary, an agreement was reached with a buyer in less than two weeks after the house went on the market. Brian and Kristin were courteous, friendly, informative, timely and effective. Brian had been highly recommended to us by our former next door neighbor. We will continue to recommend Brian Pakulla and his staff. Thank you.
