I was a first-time homebuyer and Rachel walked me through the whole process and made it much easier than I expected. She was always happy to take time to explain things I didn't fully understand, and she responded to calls, emails and texts almost immediately. I would highly recommend her to any potential homebuyer, and especially to a first-time buyer who feels overwhelmed by the process.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! So happy for you -- what a great property! Nothing else like it on the market right now! Don't hesitate to buzz me if you need any design advise :)
Working with Rachel was the best decision we made when it came to finding a home! She was extremely responsive and a wealth of information. She brings expertise about the local area, real-estate and home design--an extremely valuable combination! She is one of the hardest working people I know, responding to emails (and even having phone conversations) until all hours of the night! She got us an amazing house under very difficult and high pressure circumstances, all for a great price! We can't recommend her enough-- if we are ever in the market to buy again, we will certainly turn to Rachel!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Arnold, MD.
Rachel Best is an outstanding real-estate agent. She successfully helped us to list and sell our home in Arnold Maryland. Rachel is very knowledgeable about the local selling market. She gave us some great ideas to "spruce up the place" prior to listing and made the closing process virtually painless. Rachel was very responsive to all our questions and concerns and walked us through the entire selling process with ample explanation and support. We highly recommend Rachel Best! A+++

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $825K in Davidsonville, MD.
Rachel Best handled the sale of our home and purchase of our farm. She is by far the best broker I have ever encountered. She is thorough, professional, available, quick to address every detail and question, is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the market, and comes up with effective solutions to last minute hitches. She helped us keep our sanity through a very complex and protracted purchase. Rachel handles difficult personalities and tough situations with ease. Her design and staging ideas were extremely useful and she sold our house in one day with multiple offers above list price in a tough market. Rachel is a pleasure to work with -- always upbeat but realistic, personable, and SMART. We recommend Rachel highly on any type, size and quality of purchase and sale.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Annapolis, MD.
A friend of mine referred Rachel to me when I was ready to sell my condo. Rachel immediately responded to my email for information, and I got the impression that she would go above and beyond to get my property sold. I am glad I chose Rachel as my agent. Rachel is very knowledgeable about various areas and is extremely responsive with communication. We were successful in selling my condo relatively quickly. I would highly recommend her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Gambrills, MD.
Rachel Best is an absolutely superb real estate agent. As first time home buyers, we were thoroughly impressed by Rachel's responsiveness, effectiveness, and genuine care in guiding us through the home purchasing process. She never left a question unanswered, and would often times even anticipate our questions beforehand with the result of putting our minds at ease throughout the entire process from start to finish. What makes Rachel an exemplary real estate agent is her ability to go beyond what could be just a financial transaction to understand the human aspect of finding a home – which I dare to say in this profit-driven world is a quality that certainly stands out above the rest. In sincere appreciation of Rachel's great work and effort, we certainly felt her high caliber performance certainly merits this exceptional review. We highly recommend her to anyone seeking to purchase a home. We speak from experience, as we happily submit this review from our home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Millersville, MD.
Rachel is the best! My husband and I were looking to purchase a home. We contacted Rachel about a foreclosure we had been looking at for some time. She offered to add our email to her contacts lists so that if it, or anything new came on the market she would let us know. About a week later, the foreclosure was finally listed for sale. I had been contacting the listing agent for over a year, and never once got a reply, so I was very pleased with her service. We ended up purchasing the foreclosure, after months of negotations and used Rachel as our realtor. She stuck by our side through the entire process, start to finish. There were some "issues" with the home, and after many declines from lenders, Rachel was able to find us a lender that enabled us to purchase the home. She is very personable, honest, and looked out for our best interest. She even does interior design which helped us with some structural and cosmetic changes we wanted to make. We were so impressed with her, we had her list our rental home and was able to secure a wonderful tenant almost immediately, who is still living in the home today. We would highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy, sell or rent your home. The absolute best! Millersville, MD
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Edgewater, MD.
Rachel helped us become first-time homeowners and she was an absolute delight to work with! She made the entire home-buying process smooth and simple, and always kept us up to date of any new developments or issues we encountered along the way. Rachel explained various technical terms to us in an easy-to-understand way and has extensive knowledge of real estate practices as well as the local area. Perhaps Rachel's greatest strength is her stellar communication skills--no matter what time of day or how many e-mails or phone calls we made to her, she always responded quickly and in such a friendly manner. In fact, she often made us feel as if we were her only clients, despite her busy schedule full of other clients! Rachel truly is the very BEST!
