I’m the disorganized one in the relationship. My wife is extremely organized and is always five steps ahead of me. With this house hunt, I resolved to surprise my wife by extensively researching agents. I presented my wife with two possible agents based on a comprehensive list of qualifiers including ... resources, experience, reviews, and community service. We went with Lisa and are 100% happy with that choice. Now, I get to hold this over my wife’s head for the rest of our lives. “At least I found Lisa! We wouldn’t have gotten your dream house if I hadn’t found Lisa in time!”Fellas, if you’re looking for an agent, do yourself a favor and pick Lisa. She will make your wife happy and you can cash in on those brownie points. During our listing, Lisa: * Recommended we expand our search to include split-level houses. We discovered the house we ended up purchasing (a split level) the next day. * Set up a meeting to view the house within 1 day, which led to us closing the deal. * Responded EXTREMELY QUICKLY to our messages. Seriously, I don’t think we ever waited more than an hour to hear back from her. * Was ethical. During our interview, I asked her to do something that I knew was illegal (tell us a neighborhood’s demographics), and she politely refused and explained why she couldn’t honor my request. I tried to trap her, and she passed. * Was extremely nice. You know how sales people are all smiles and handshakes because they want to sell you something? Lisa doesn’t give that vibe. She gives the impression that she genuinely cares about you.* Made the process easy. Zero snags the whole way.

My husband and I recently purchased our first home in Maryland with the help of Lisa Kittleman and we couldn’t be happier. First, Lisa was an expert negotiator; without her, we would not be in the house we are today. Second, she listens to you, is approachable, and doesn’t pressure ... you to buy because she understands that it takes time to find the perfect home for your family. Additionally, whenever we hit a road-block, Lisa always tackled it head-on and whole-hardheartedly advocated on our behalf. She was extremely attentive and immediately responded whenever we reached out to her. We feel very fortunate to have worked with Lisa, and thank her for her dedication, optimism, and hard work.

I worked with Laura primarily. What struck me about her was how caring and helpful she was during the entire process of selling my home. While of course she has a lot of clients, when she was with me I felt like I always had her undivided attention. She has ... a very sweet nature and is not at all aggressive. She made me feel relaxed and optimistic and completely confident that she was the right person to sell my home…and she was!! She is the greatest!!

We first met Laura when we purchased the house that she recently sold for us. She was the agent for the sellers and throughout the process, we kept saying to ourselves that we wished she was our agent. Every move that she made was in the best interest of her ... clients. After relocating to the west coast for a few years, we decided it was time to sell the house in Maryland. Laura was the only agent we considered and we’re glad. With it being a cross country transaction, Laura explained how the process would work. She used her local knowledge to help us decide on a listing price that got us an offer (at our list price) after only being on the market for one day. She was able to recommend local experts to help us with items found on the home inspection. Our closing went so smooth for us, that we couldn’t believe it really happened (especially with us being so far away). What we really enjoyed about working with Laura was that she kept us in the loop and she kept our best interest in mind at all times. Previous agents seemed to make it all about them. Laura made it about doing what was best for us.

Laura and Lisa Kittleman were absolutely fabulous to work with. They worked diligently to market, host open houses, stage and network to sell our property. The entire Kittleman Group team worked tirelessly with us in selling the home. I would highly recommend Laura and Lisa and know that they will ... perform superbly in working with you in your local real estate needs. I can’t say enough about what a pleasure it was working with them. They are caring, attentive, professional, warm and genuine…which is rare in the residential real estate business. Many kudos and genuine appreciation to Laura and Lisa Kittleman for all their efforts.

We actually began looking for a condo in Columbia in November of 2014! Lisa happened (so fortunately) to be the listing agent for one we wanted to visit so we agreed on the appointment. The condo was too small for our needs, but Lisa was most excellent. We were so ... impressed with her professionalism and patience! Intermittently we would call to ask about possibilities and Lisa was always so willing to take us to see whatever I had found on Zillow or any RE sites. Finally, on Feb 3 we visited our dream property and after a walk through we asked to return Lisa’s office to put in a bid. She suggested a starting price to negotiate from, but she immediately agreed to start at a price $5,000 lower as we requested. Every step along the way was handled perfectly. CALL HER!!!!!

I would highly recommend Laura & Lisa Kittleman to assist you in buying and selling your next home. We were very impressed with their level of professionalism and responsiveness. They guided us through the entire buying and selling process with not so much as a hiccup. Their efforts exceeded out ... expectations and it was a real pleasure working with them!
Frances and Ron Waddell – Sellers and Buyers
Laura helped us sell our old home, and Lisa helped us find our new home. We can’t say enough good things about both of them. They were professional, responsive, helpful, and both were expert negotiators. With Laura’s help, we received multiple offers on our old house, and accepted an offer ... that was more than we had hoped for! With Lisa’s help, we found the perfect house at a price that was less than we had hoped for! Both selling and buying came with some pre-settlement bumps, but Lisa and Laura were well-equipped to handle them, and went out of their way to make sure they were resolved as quickly as possible and that we closed on time. We would recommend the whole team with no hesitation whatsoever!
