Jenell Forman provides the total package for you home buying needs. I am extremely pleased with my experience working with Jenell and have recommended him to several friends in the market to purchase a home. One experience that sticks out with me is when Jenell drove out to show me a property during a snow storm. Jenell was very knowledgeable in every aspect of the home buying process and provided a comprehensive service. Working with Jenell was very easy and not the head ache that I heard the home buying process to be. If you are looking for a comprehensive, loyal, and honest agent Jenell is your guy.
With my wife being 3 months pregnant, the home buying experiences was an intimidating one. We had several factors working against us; we didn't know the market, had limited time available for showings, and generally were inexperienced with 'what to look for' and 'what to expect'. Fortunately for us, Jenell 'super-realtor' Foreman was on the case. Jenell made the buying experience so simple and convenient.
For starters, my busy job made it difficult to schedule showings especially considering the distance we lived from our desired location. Jenell leveraged the 'user-friendly' Remax website to make searching for homes easy. After a week of browsing through available homes, my wife and I narrowed our search down to 10 homes. We told Jenell we only had 3 hours on Saturday, but wanted to see all 10 homes. Jenell worked diligently to setup all the showings. These properties ranged from beautiful well-kept homes to distressed properties. He explained the pros and cons for both. After searching for hours, my wife and I found the perfect property.
From there, we headed to Jenell's office to submit our first offer. Jenell used his keen negotiation skills and patience to help is get a great price on a great property. The professionalism didn't stop there.
Next step, Jenell offered a suggestion for a super home inspector. After spending a couple minutes with the guy, we felt comfortable and had him move forward with our inspection. He did an extremely thorough job and found several items which needed repair. Again, Jenell negotiated these repairs.
I can't say enough about what a knowledgable, patient realtor Jenell is. I referred a co-worker to him and he bought a house as well.... As it turns out, I wasn't the only one who felt this strongly about Jenell, my fellow co-worker was impressed as well.

I am that guy that reads reviews and is skeptical of most of them and weighs the pros and cons over and over again. That being said.....In the beginning I was skeptical of Jenell, I thought there is no way he can legitimately have this many good reviews; however I was was pleasantly proved wrong. I did my homework, I took home-ownership classes, I took a 5 week Long and Foster Realtor class, I had personal friends who are realtors on speed dial to cross check every move we made...NOT once did Jenell pull the wool over my eyes or steer me wrong. Long story short I put Jenell through the ringer and he proved himself to be better than the reviews. Jenell's process makes this house hunting process, known to be a tough process, easy. Jenell does not have every answer but he has most of them and the ones he does't have the answer to he will find the answer. Jenell is definitely one of the best.
This was to be our third attempt placing our home for sale. In the past three years we had already spent many hours cleaning, painting, and preparing our home for showing so to say my wife and I approached this process again with trepidation was an understatement.
Jenell was recommended to us by our neighbors who had recently sold their home so we thought, who better to try and sell ours than someone who had recently found success! However, what we got was more than just a repeat of what worked for them. We found that Jenell was not only knowledgable in his craft, but that he tailored that understanding to meet our needs. He was honest as well, reiterating the fact there was onus on our part to make it happen, but he told us he would do everything within his ability to see our home sold.
So, in less than a week Jenell delivered where others had not and while we recognize the housing market is becoming better for home sellers, we truly feel that his style of salesmanship was essential to the successful closing of our home. Whenever we spoke we never felt like a customer, instead like a friend and there was never a time when his need to service all of his clients negated the importance of our needs, which meant a great deal to us.
So to close, the best recommendation we can give is that if we were to have to sell again, we would use Jenell Foreman, and so should you.

When I first started the home buying process I wasn't sure if I was completely ready. When I called Jenell he was very easy to talk to and answered all of my questions, and believe me I had a lot! He listened to everything I wanted in a home and set me up to start looking at listings. When we went out to look my top choices he was so knowledgable with every property. He educated me on what to look for and never tried to push me into anything. When I found my house we put in the offer that night and got the ball rolling. Buying a house was a very big scary step and seemed overwhelming to me. Jenell made the whole experience so easy and smooth that I had nothing to worry about and I worry about everything. He always kept me up to date with the whole process and took care of every question. With Jenell's help I understood everything that was going on and he made the home buying experience exciting instead of scary! I would recommend him to everyone looking to buy or sell a house. I am now a home owner! Thank you Jenell!

I am a single mom of two in saying that Jenell was very flexible with his schedule and mine. There wasn't a time where Jenell did not make himself available. Jenell is very knowledgeable when it comes to houses where you would think he was the inspector. Jenell will do his best to look out the buyers best interest versus his own. Jenell is a easy guy to work with and very professional. I appreciate all he has done to help me purchase my first home. So if your looking for a descent Realtor he is your guy.
Jenell Forman is an outstanding and a very trustworthy agent. Several years ago, he sold a home to our daughter. When we were ready to sell our home our daughter did not hesitate to recommend Jenell to us. We met him and were very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. We entrusted the sale of our home to Jenell. He made some recommendations to ensure that we could get the price we were asking. We made the improvements. The results were amazing. We fell in love with our home all over again. The photographs that Jenell took of our house were stunning. The response we received once the house was put on the market was even better. Some time later, due to a family illness, we had to take the house off the market.
Recently, we contacted Jenell indicating that we were ready to sell our home. But, because of the family illness, we were only interested in broking even with the sale of our house. We also informed Jenell that he only had 4 months to sell it. Jenell was very understanding and sympathetic to our needs and was more than willing to take on the challenge.
It was essential that he sell our house in the 4 month time frame. We were moving out into our new place and weren't going to be able to afford to keep up both places for an extended period of time. He calculated everything and sent us a written proposal. We were busy focusing on other matters that we left everything in the capable hands of our professional real estate agent.
Bottom line is that Jenell sold our house for $36,000 above our broke even number. Not only did he sell our house above the broke even number but we also went to settlement in 1 month and closed. What a superb job!
Jenell Forman definitely has your best interest at heart. And trust us; you cannot say that about everybody.
Jenell did an outstanding job with the sale of my home. He was responsive and resourceful by providing a great carpet contact that was substantially cheaper than one of the big home improvement warehouses. His advice on timing of the listing and pricing landed us a deal after only around 30 days on market.

Being a first time home buyer is a very scary experience. However, Jenelle Foreman worked us through the process and was always available with utmost patience. He remained professional and courteous throughout the process and we will definately recommend him over again.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Baltimore, MD.
Jenell listed and sold our home at the end of 2012. Our home was on the market for only 17 days before we got the offer that we ended up accepting. While our home had a lot to offer, it was Jenell that helped us to get it ready for showing and made it stellar. His advice was extremely valuable and we took all of his expertise seriously when staging our home. Jenell also gave us very honest comparison prices so we could decide on a fair listing price. He believes strongly in setting your price correctly from the start - which we know helped our house to sell so quickly. Also before listing, Jenell took beautiful photographs of the inside and outside of our home and he had the home listed before we knew it. We were extremely impressed with our home's internet presence and the quick attention it received. During the showing process, Jenell was always a text, email or phone call away and could always answer any question we had. Once we received our first offer, he helped us to make sure we were getting what we wanted and handled all interaction with the buying agent. After we accepted a contract, he told us everything to expect and what we needed to do moving toward settlement.
We know that Jenell is a busy realtor but through the whole process he always made us feel like we were his only clients. We appreciated his candidness and honesty - we knew we could trust him from the very beginning and he had the utmost respect for our thoughts as well. He answered every question we had and would often check in with us just to see how we were doing with everything.
We would recommend Jenell to anyone looking to sell their home!
