As first time home buyers, the whole process was very challenging, complicated and worst of all very stressful, i can vividly remember how many times we came close to giving up the entire idea. Jenell was God sent, he came just in the nick of time and took charge, from then on everything was a breeze. We found our dream home.

Jenell took us through a rather difficult sale process with a challenging buyer. There were several opportunities for us to loose our cool, but Jenell kept us on track and doing the right thing! I would recommend him to anyone wanting a smooth purchase or sales experience.
I started from scratch, researching agents online. After doing my homework, Jennell ended up as one of my finalist. I initiated a call, followed by a meeting, which led to me ultimately choosing Jennell. From day one, he blew the others away! I was very impressed with amount of information he provided. He's not your average agent by far. The way he executes his deals are very impressive! It's obvious that he takes pride in a job well done! Once coming on board as my agent, he immediately provided me with continuous information on the entire home buying process. He kept me up to date with market trends, to how to obtain financing, to what to look for structurally in choosing a home, to all the steps involved from A-Z to settlement day. He comes with years of experience, professionalism, a ton of knowledge and even has a background in home building so he was able to apply that to my selection process. He was always pleasant, very informative, accessible and willing to do whatever necessary to make the process easy and smooth. I literally found my new home in 1 weekend with his assistance! Wow! Even after settlement, he still provided excellent service to make sure that my needs were being met. He even supplied me with tips and checklists on packing, scheduling movers, setting up utilities and obtaining all things necessary to make the transition to my new home! My expectations were clearly exceeded! I can't say enough about the wonderful stressless experience I had working with Jennell! I appreciate him so much for everything he did! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell thier home!
A year and a half ago, Jenell helped us get a great deal on the house we wanted. My job forced my family to relocate so we had to sell the house quickly. In only 1.5 years of owning the house, Jenell helped us net a 10 percent return on our investment.
How did we net a 10 percent return? In my opinion , 4 main factors contributed to our success. 1) Jenell's Market Knowledge- Jenell found us a great house in a great market with excellent resale value. 2) Jenell's Negotiating Skills- these skills helped on both the purchase and sale of the house. 3) Jenell's House Staging Skills- he did a superb job helping us prep our house for showings. Jenell knows all the 'subtle' ways to make a house show its best. 4) Jenell's Market Reputation- when selling your home in MD, everyone knows Jenell. His open houses and listings are everywhere. This brings credibility to potential buyers.
Lastly, Jenell's professionalism and extensive knowledge of real estate set him apart from any realtor I've met (and trust me I have had bad realtors). After working with him to both buy and sell my house I consider him not just a realtor, but a friend.

My family and I are still amazed with Jenell Forman's handling the sale of my mother's home. We really appreciated all of his kindness, expertise and experience. His patience with my 87 year old mother was outstanding, and she knew that he was the one that she wanted to work with in the selling of her home. His professionalism, knowledge of the business, and the way that he represents his client's throughout this process was truly amazing. We sold my mother's home in less than 2 weeks following all of his recommendations.
I highly recommend Jenell without any reservations to anyone that's looking to buy or sell a home. We are very pleased and truly grateful to Jenell Forman.

Jenell is a great real estate agent and professional. He provided 5 star service throughout the entire process. From the initial consultation of ensuring that I understood the selling process to the way in which he displayed/presented my home. Every question, concern, or inquiry was addressed and answered or handled. He ensured that I received the best offer for my home with negotiating each and every detail. I could not have been more pleased with the process and would hire him again without hesitation.
I would highly recommend Jenell to anyone looking to purchase a home. Jenell’s expertise as a builder showcased one of his many attributes in the real estate business. This was a very emotional process for me; however, Jenell was very helpful and patient during the entire process. He was able to negotiate with the selling agent to get 100% of what I needed to close, as well as other details worked out. He was always available to me and with me every step of the way in offering advice. He is very knowledgeable of the local area and helped keep me on track until I was able to purchase the home that I love. The entire home buying process was painless because of Jenell’s commitment to helping me find what I was looking for. I was totally happy with the entire process. Thank you Jenell!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Ellicott City, MD.
Our objective of buying home in Ellicott City was to get our son into good public school. Apart from that, we were completely unaware of the area. Also, since we have been staying in the apartment so far, we were not sure what to expect in our new house.
Jenell was recommended by one of our family friends. He started educating us on the area first, showed variety of houses and help us realize what kind of house we need. His construction background not only helped better match our expectation but also protected from hidden problems, especially for first time home buyers like us. He made genuine attempt to learn our requirements first and we reached a state where we were only looking at the houses that met our expectations!. He never pushed us on the sale price, always gave his honest opinion on the home value and used his negotiation skills to get the deal done at the right price.
Jenell will get the job done and we would simply recommend him.

I would like to give thanks to Jenell Forman for him making it possible for me to purchase a great house. I have now purchased five houses and sold two in the last forty years. So I have used numerous realtors. A few were poor; the majority were good, but none excellent except Jenell. I rated him excellent because I could not think of anything he did not do well.
