Ratings & Reviews

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. <br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>We would recommend Jenell to anyone looking to sell their home!<br/><br/>Erika & Jason Hiles

Bought a home in 2011 in Garrison, Owings Mills, MD 21117.

My 1st home buying experience with Jenell was a memorable one. He basically walked me through the process with professional and unbias personal advance. He put me in a situation where I received grant money from the state of Maryland towards my down payment which made things easier. He has alot of knowledge and experience and his work ethic shows. Still until this day if I have any home question I can call on him and he still helps with no problem. He is a MUST use.

Jenell Forman was beyond a pleasure to do business with. He was always available when needed, knowledgeable, professional and very courteous. My wife and I have not one complaint. From the time we met with Jenell and started our first time home-buying process Jenell was there helping every step, making our search very smooth and easy. We have settled into our home and wouldn't recommend anyone other than Jenell.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Columbia, MD.

Don't go anywhere else! My husband and I picked Jenell from his reviews here on Zillow--he totally delivered. From the beginning, Jenell was quick to respond to any and all of our questions. Our most favorite part about Jenell is the fact that he truly let us choose the perfect house for us. With his construction knowledge, he was able to give us facts about each house we looked at--and we looked at a good number of houses, but let us make the decision ourselves. He would give advise such as, "this house has a lot of space. The other house has smaller rooms, but with a nice, updated kitchen and bathrooms. It's up to you guys to decide which is more important to you." His construction knowledge was such an asset to us--definitely helped us make educated choices as we were looking through different houses. He gave us tips on negotiations on what is a reasonable price to start, but again, left the choice to us whether we wanted to go forward on a counter-offer.

During inspection, he again delivered by setting us up with Eric Smith, who was extremely thorough and wonderfully knowledgeable about houses. Both Eric and Jenell gave us such expert advise on what to do with the house and what to expect.

Jenell is definitely a team player and will look out for what is best for you. Buying is a house is a mix of emotional, financial and factual variables. Having Jenell on our side helped us balance all three. He was extremely patient with us and always gave us options as well as facts. He is simply the right choice when looking for a Buyer's agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Owings Mills, MD.

We had an outstanding experience working with Mr Forman. He listed our home and did an excellent job marketing it. During the closing the title company was a national company out of Florida and they had all of the MD taxes coded incorectly. jenell had to contact them and make corrections. His expertise worked to benefit the buyer and seller during the closing.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $150K in West Hills, Baltimore, MD.

My experience with Jenell Forman was excellent. This was our first time ever selling a house. Mr. Forman meet with us and brought comparisons of other going prices before putting the house on the market. He gave us suggestions to what needed to be done and staging. Our house sold within 70 days of being on the market. Mr. Forman also give us great advise on what to upgrade in our new home that we would not go over our budget. I would recommend Jenell to anyone I know who is in the market of buying or selling a home.

Bought a home in 2012 in Garrison, Owings Mills, MD 21117.

After getting pre-approved, we started our search for a real estate agent. We really were searching for somebody with experience in our area and somebody that we could trust. We were impressed with the reviews that we found on Zillow of Jenell. (and they were sooo true) It also helped that we met him months earlier at a first-time home buyer seminar for local grant programs and we were impressed with him. With the valuable help of Jenell, we started our search on a house and within one week we found the house that perfectly fit our needs. It was extremely helpful to have somebody like Jenell with his experience and knowledge who can point out all the pros and cons of every house, and even analyze all the construction aspects of each house. He is very knowledgeable in home construction also. Jenell guided us through the process of putting an offer together. A half an hour before we were to put the offer on the house and sign the paperwork, the lender who had pre-approved us called and said that there was a glitch in the system and we were no longer pre-approved. Jenell never lost hope in us and referred us to several lenders he’s worked with including a gentleman named Todd who had performed miracles to help people get approved for loans. We provided all the information to the new lender and received the pre-approval and were able to put the offer on the house at the end of November/2011. With everything going fine and almost ready to get the clear to close at the end of December/2011, a wrong report to the credit bureau on our credit dropped our credit score below the required threshold and the lender denied us the loan. Todd & Jenell took our case to another lender. We submitted all the paperwork again but by this time the contract was expired. Jenell negotiated with the seller to agree to sign an extension of the contract. (This is when you need somebody with a lot of experience and a good network to try to overcome these obstacles like Jenell) After finally getting the clear to close, the seller wasn’t sure if he still wanted to sell the house or not. Once again, Jenell stepped in and pleaded with the seller on our behalf and after a couple of days he decided to sell and we were able to close in March. If you are looking for the best agent, you need to contact Jenell Forman. If it wasn’t for him and his team of professionals that he works with, we would not have the happiness of writing this review. After 4 months of uncertainty about getting approved for a loan we are extremely thankful to Jenell for making our dream of becoming home owners come true. Through this long process, Jenell gave us all the support in the world for us to keep going. You can just imagine how many e-mails, calls, texts we sent him in desperation and confusion and he always responded quickly to every single one of them. With his professionalism, expertise, and support we were able to overcome all of these hurdles. He exceeded our expectations by far. He was always by our side, day and night, along our long journey. He is someone that you can count on! He is our real estate agent for life and we will recommend him to everyone!!

Bought a home in 2012 in Garrison, Owings Mills, MD 21117.

Having relocated to Owings Mills recently we were looking to buy a house. Jenell was the seller's agent for one of the properties we visited and during our interaction with him we were impressed with his knowledge of the Owings Mills area and sought his help in the buying process. We came across a single family home on short-sale and his previous background in the constuction industry helped us assess and gauge the property. Jenell's solid negotiation skills guided us through the lengthy short-sale cycle successfully. Most impressive was the fact that even after we closed the sale Jenell visited us the next day and helped us walkthrough the property and connected us with the right service people to fix up the place. We strongly recommend Jenell !

WOW!!!! Many words can describe our experience while dealing with Jenell, but these few say it all: Masterful, Patient, Active Listener, Compassionate, Passionate and the Ultimate Professional.

I would recommend the services of Jenell Forman and his associates to anyone I came across looking to purchase or sell a home without hesitation.
