As a real estate attorney, I deal with thousands of agents, and therefore I'm in a unique position to appreciate the efforts which Margie put forth to assist all parties to an amicable and successful conclusion to my real estate transaction. Margie made certain that all parties to the transaction were treated fairly, kept informed, and explained every possibility and option for avoiding misunderstandings. I have always had a great appreciation and respect for the quality of Margie’s services, but before, I had not had personal experience with her on a transaction of my own. I know Margie did not get rich on this transaction, but my wife and I appreciate her competence, courtesy, and friendship throughout this process.
The first thing that comes to mind when working with Lori Silverman is honesty with her clients. Through our search for a house, we came across many agents on the other end of the process who were looking to exploit any opportunity to their gain and not necessarily their clients gain. Lori understood when to work fast to close the deal and when to pause and make sure the deal was right for us. Her patience in making sure we found the right fit can't be overstated and that was the reason we found the perfect home for us - and we stress PERFECT HOME. Lori treated us like family during the process and she didn't make us feel like a client. She is the most exceptional realtor you can ever have. Without her, we would not be in the most amazing home ever! In our 5-year endeavor of searching for our dream home, Lori patiently stuck with us even as we constantly changed our minds on what we wanted. She would also ask great questions to make sure the house was a good fit for us. She still checks in on occasion to make sure were happy with everything in our home, and even brought us a box of chocolates this past Christmas!
Our sales person Margie Halem and her staff were excellent. Great experience. We will use Margie and her staff again. Margie is simply a top notch agent and a quality person. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the service she provided us. From the day we met her, she worked tirelessly to identify our home needs, help us find a home when offerings were limited, and took great care to make sure every detail was covered to allow us to get to closing. Furthermore, she was always available to answer questions and return calls in a timely manner. Margie even answered her cell phone while at an Orioles game. That’s what we call service. Her attention to detail was greatly appreciated. Every interaction we had with her was a positive experience.
Margie originally served as our buyers' agent in 2004 when we bought our current home. When we decided to build last year, we went straight to Margie to serve as our representative with the contractor. And we're now in the process of selling our home, and Margie has been working with us closely to prepare the house for market, position it with buyers and now, happily, to close on a purchase. Of all of the skills required to be a successful realtor, Margie excels in having extraordinary depth of knowledge about the market she covers and really honed negotiation skills. It's no surprise she's among the top 1% of Long and Foster realtors nationwide.
If you are looking to buy a house, Margie and her team particularly Amy Gordon are the way to go. She is extremely knowledgeable and her strong negotiation skills make you glad she's on your side. She was very helpful throughout the whole process and did an excellent job of representing us. We couldn't have done this without her and recommend her to everybody who's looking to buy or sell a house. We thank you for the large amount of effort you put in towards helping us buy our dream house. Without you both, the negotiations would not have gone well. We definitely could not have done this without you both and we will recommend you to all our friends.
Long & Foster is only as good as its salespeople and Margie Halem was great. I have dealt with many realtors in the past and recently and her professionalism is what was so impressive. She was honest, knowledgeable and efficient. Her ability to put together a transaction that was mutually satisfying to all parties involved was a testament to her sensitivity and capabilities. She knows the art of the deal Her non pushy attitude coupled with constant follow ups and timely updates were a perfect combination. I have highly recommended her to everyone I know.
Despite choosing to sell my home in Bethesda in a down market, and in the fall of the year, Margie managed to make this process very smooth for me. She worked tirelessly to move my home, keeping me advised every step of the way on what to do, how to price my house, and how to stage it properly. In addition to doing all of the painful detail work of selling, Margie was there to help me with things like utilities, finding contractors to do repairs, etc. I would definitely call Margie Halem again if I wanted to sell my home, she is efficient, hardworking, totally honest, and a pleasure to work with.
Margie Halem is the very best, definitely a top agent. She is extremely responsive, competent, and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to work with her, also a very affable and a friendly person. Knows the market like none other and very efficiently follows up with the prospective buyers. I would strongly recommend her, and if overly busy, that she is, any other agent from her group, under her guided supervision could be just as good. Absolutely a terrific person and truly a professional to work with.
We recently sold a home of 44 years in Potomac, MD. When we went looking for a real estate agent Margie Halem was recommended. We were told that she is the best with an outstanding track record. The recommendations were more than valid. During the sales process when actions demanded it she went the extra mile to solve each problem to our satisfaction. Her experience showed through the entire process. We recommend her highly to anyone looking for a true professional in real estate sales.
You were an enormous help to us in identifying useful improvements while avoiding unnecessary changes. When we did list the house, it sold within a week. And when the buyer encountered appraisal and financing difficulties, you guided us through the process to close the deal. Above all Margie, you were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.
Our experience with Margie was wonderful. For every question she had an answer, for every judgement call she had sage counsel and for every piece of work that needed to be done she had a contact. Margie and her team truly are a one stop shop. I preach the gospel of Margie and will recommend her to all of my friends and family.
I would have to borrow the Maxwell House Coffee's good to the last drop phrase. Margie, your office people and you were there till the bitter end even though it took us almost two long years to find a house. Margie was patient, courteous, friendly and true to her words. I would truly like to thank Margie for putting up with my wife and I till the bitter or should I say till the sweet and wonderful end. We are very happy with our purchase and would strongly recommend Margie to anyone who is in the market whether they are purchasing or selling.
Margie always went above and beyond her duties as an agent. She helped us through a very busy real estate season and was always available whenever we needed her. We have bought many homes before and have never received the kind of excellent service that Margie provided.
This is the second home Margie and her team sold for us. Both above asking price and amazingly both in a day. She is diligent, knows the market, very connected and organized. She and her team took care of everything from A to Z. I highly recommend Margie and her team.
Working with Margie Halem is a true joy. I just completed my 4th transaction with Margie and enjoyed every bit of the process! Margie is a true professional with prompt accurate responses to your every question. She makes the deal fun and less nerve wracking since buying and/or selling your home can be a stressful process. Margie and her team were fantastic.
You really can't find a better real estate agent than Margie, She and her staff did a great job of helping us sell our house, from doing the background research on the market, through staging and holding an open house, the inspection process, and negotiating with the buyers. She's clearly the best.
My house received an offer from the buyer 2 days within being listed. Because of a medical situation, Margie came to me in health care placement. She handled the sale of my house, so I could concentrate on getting better. The process could not have been any smoother for me.
We recently used Margie Halem as our agent to sell our apartment. She's a real pro. We had a wonderful experience. She is knowledgeable, a pleasure to work with, and helped us get the result that we wanted. We would definitely use her again.
Margie is very knowledgeable about the area and the sales process. She was very responsive and even helped us find a rental house as we were selling our house. I would definitely recommend her as a real estate agent.
We have the real estate experience, marketing prowess, and in-depth local knowledge to help you buy or sell your dream home.
