‟Lisa became our real estate agent and we were very happy working with her. I found her by making a phone call about a house I found online that I wanted more information about and she met with us in person that very same day to introduce herself as a potential agent for us. That was very cool as I am impatient and she was and continued to be very r … esponsive throughout the process. These days you can find a lot of houses online with or without an agent but she was always available when we wanted to go an visit a house and get a tour and came into the rescue when it came time for negotiations or backing out of a contract that we ended up changing our minds about. Our financial situation was a bit up in the air as we had just started looking and hadn't determined our budget quite yet but she was very patient and kept in touch with us over the course of a few months. She put us in contact with Jesse Gelb, a mortgage consultant, who was just as responsive as she was and together they made the process move very smoothly and quickly. Lisa is responsive, does her research well, gets you a tour with the property as soon as she can and doesn't pressure you to make a decision. As first and young home buyers she was very easy to get along with and was very knowledgable about the process and addressing all of our different options as things came up. She took care of negotiations well and was able to get us everything we wanted after we did the home-inspection. Her team did everything they could to get our move in day moving up sooner and sooner and we were in our first home together just in time for christmas. It was a beautiful thing and a lot of fun. Lisa is extremely nice, fashionable, fun and down to earth and accommodating to your needs. I will be using her again in a heartbeat down the road if we ever decide to move but we are very happy with our purchase. You won't regret going with Lisa” Read More ▾
‟Laura is amazing to work with. She listens to your every word in order to gain a full understanding of your unique needs. She is also remarkably positive! You can't help but share in her enthusiasm for buying or selling your home. The Kittleman team will be our agents for life!”
‟If you are searching for an agent who is dependable, detail-oriented, hard-working, a clear communicator, deeply cares, radiates great positive energy and confidence, understands families and their needs, and gets the job done (to the point of working miracles), I suggest you go with this superb one-of-a-kind team. We just closed on our DREAM HOME … and I attribute this to the efforts of Lisa and her superb team!! Earlier this spring we were lost in our home search. We had an unsuccessful experience working with a different real estate agent (involving several failed offers and poor communication who also did not know the area). We started looking on Zillow to find an agent, basically starting from scratch. We read and compared tons of reviews. In the reviews of the Kittleman team I was really struck by how Lisa would help entertain kids so that their parents could really look at a house (i.e. bringing somewhat rambunctious kids on a weekend tour would actually be ok!), and that she really knew the area well. I also read that she was very careful and found things on a final walk through for one of her clients and helped to negotiate closing so that she served her clients best interests (saving them 9K...read the other reviews here). I have worked with many different agents in the past and felt like that deep attention is just so unusual and goes above and beyond. I think from our first conversation with Lisa I really felt very comfortable and knew would be able to work together well. I think in working with Lisa and Katie we realized just exactly how much having an agent who knows the area, knows how to negotiate, knows the market, and knows how to represent her client's best interest- just how far it can take you. When we toured houses together Lisa noticed things that we did not and helped us really think through different house values. We never felt any pressure in putting offers on houses. She is excellent in realizing a good price range for bidding on a house and was strategic in helping us set up our offer. She helped us tremendously on our home inspection and in deciding on a good list of repairs to request. Just at times when I thought things weren't going to work out, she had ideas for repairs and how to get them done cost-effectively (that she also referred the sellers to). She has a network of contractors who she put us in connection with whom we have confidence will get the job done and done well. We wouldn't have known where to start... Another point to be made- my husband and I have busy jobs, and I found Katie and Lisa to always be on top of everything- they truly go above and beyond what I've ever seen a real estate agent do. They sent us email updates, quotes for repairs, they followed up with contractors and vendors, took separate trips to the house to take pictures for us during work hours. We never would have been able to do this ourselves. I think what I found most striking about working with Lisa is that she is optimistic and solution oriented. She truly cares about what is happening and the ramifications of the deal going well. There was no point in the process where I felt like they weren't looking out for our interests 100%. I think there is something nice about the size of this team, where you really get a personalized experience. There were times when we felt worried or stressed (given the natural aspects of the process) and her team was routinely positive, optimistic and searching for solutions. I really think they made a difference in us finding this home and in our families' life. I think if you're looking for someone to really go to bat for you, in finding your dream home with strong support along the way through every stage- this is the team” Read More ▾
‟I had the pleasure of working with Laura + Lisa and had an overall great experience. They are very type A and get it done. I felt they always had my best interests in mind and I highly recommend working with them!”
‟As a first time homebuyer, the process seemed extremely intimidating, but Lisa made it easy. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and made sure I had all of the information I needed. Not only did she make the process easy, but she made it fun too. Without her as my agent, I don't think I would have gotten my house in this highly comp … etitive market. I definitely highly recommend her” Read More ▾
‟We lived a great distance from the condo we needed to sell in Columbia and without Laura and her staff it would have been a nightmare. She was instrumental in helping us get the condo almost completely redone to make it market ready and then walked us through every step of the way.”
‟Laura is an excellent agent. She helped my mother sell her home of 43 years. My mother had no idea what to expect in the process and Laura was very patient and understanding of her lack of experience in this territory. She worked very hard at closing to be sure we were not overpaying for closing items and even was able to get us an additional check … because of this. Overall we could not be happier and if you choose her you will be too” Read More ▾
‟Laura did a terrific job selling my house. She knew the market, the competition and all the many details involved in selling the house and closing the sale. Especially significant was Laura's marketing program. The program included an attractive brochure, open houses and a wonderful drone video. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone buying or se … lling a house in Howard County Maryland” Read More ▾
