"I want to say thank you and express my appreciation for all your help in finding and closing on our new home. We couldn't have done it without your expertise and experience. You are a master of your craft!We were in great hands every step of the way and I will recommend you to everyone I come across who is looking to buy or sell a home." ~ Stephanie & Steve L.

"Thanks to Carol's hard work our house sold in just under two months with two offers coming in on the same night.  She brought in a professional photographer to take pictures of the house and then posted them online.  I appreciated that because agents & prospective buyers were able to preview the house before scheduling a showing.
 
She did an excellent job of marketing which helped to generate more traffic through our home.
 
Carol also encouraged us to have a pre-market inspection.  We did so and so we were able to fix quickly any issues that came up in that inspection.
 
She and her associate, Jim, hosted three open houses for us which generated even more interest.  They subsequently followed up with each agent.
 
We were kept informed throughout the process with phone calls, emails and text messages and we were encouraged to contact her with any questions which we felt very comfortable in doing.
 
The selling of our house was a positive experience so I highly recommend using Carol as a realtor.  In fact if we were still living in the DC metro area, I would not hesitate to use her again."  ~Diane U.

"First and foremost, Carol has become a family friend since working with us! Carol was referred to us by a relative, and she helped us find and purchase our first single family "starter" home as a young married couple. 6 years later, and expecting twins, Carol visited us, met the children and truly wanted to be a part of our lives. When the twins were turning 3, and we were ready to "move up" into a larger home with more space, Carol spent countless hours helping us search, out of county, for a new home. She knew what we wanted and wouldn't let us settle or get discouraged! She drove us to homes when it was convenient for US - early morning, late evening, even weekends. She knew we were both full time working parents, with young children, and it was hard to juggle it all...Carol took the "stress" out of the equation. She was there for us when we needed her...and still is. A year after finding the perfect home, she came to visit, just to see how we settled in. In 20 years, when my children are looking for their first homes after college, Carol will be my first call!"  ~ Amy R.

"Words cannot express the appreciation & gratitude I have for you throughout this experience.  Thank you so much for everything you've done to make this transition in our life a smooth one."  ~ Monica O.

"We wanted to thank you for your professionalism, charm & tenacity& hard work in selling our house.  It was much smoother than we could have hoped for!  You were charming & accommodating & aggressively protective of us when you needed to be!  I like that combination!  We will definitely recommend you to our friends!  Thanks for everything,"  ~ The O'Neils"

"Thank you ever so much for all of your help with our recent home purchase.  Having never bought real estate before, Millie & I were naturally anxious as we contemplated taking this step.  Our ignorance regarding the process in conjunction with the logistical problems of shopping for & buying a home before we moved into the area were cause for some concern on our part.  But you made it all so easy!  It seems that all we had to do was tell you what we were looking for in a house & roughly where we wanted to live. You did essentially everything else!  With your help we were able to zero in on the right house after only two short house-hunting visits to the area (a total of only four days searching time).  Your willingness to adapt your schedule to accommodate us (on very short notice in one case) was absolutely essential to our home search.  Your patience & perseverance during a highly compressed & intense price negotiation period were instrumental to the satisfactory resolution of those negotiations; indeed, they were all that prevented those negotiations from breaking down altogether at one point.  You then made the financing & settlement arrangements run so smoothly.  It was amazing to us & our friends that the total time from the initiation of our home search to closing was only two months.
The house has turned out to have been all that we could have wished for.  In fact, it has far exceeded our expectations.  You might imagine that we were concerned about our ability to afford a suitable house upon moving into an expensive area like Washington, DC.  You were able to lead us to a fine house in a good neighborhood that we could afford.
You are an excellent real estate agent, Carol.  We will be certainly recommending you to anybody we know who is considering buying or selling real estate in this area.  Your initiative, expertise, patience, integrity, & devotion to duty reflect great credit upon yourself & your company." ~ Paul S.

"I was introduced to Carol Schantz by my brother who had used her expertise when she sold two houses for him in no time. He mentioned that Carol was a very hard working person and extremely professional and if I ever needed a realtor she was the one and no one else.
I contacted Carol after I renovated the town house and she was quite happy with the work but also advised that some more things be done. After all the work was done the town house was put on the market and we sold it quickly for more money than any other house had sold in there for quite some time!
Carol also patiently took me to see other properties even on the weekends where I asked if she ever took a break and her answer was I love doing my job. She found me a beautiful condo in no time and worked day and night to get a settlement to my advantage. So in a months time she sold my town house and got me a condo of my liking.
Carol was available 24 hours a day and you could contact her any time when needed and always so willing to answer queries and very patient.
I highly recommend Carol not only is she charming but very professional and extremely hard working.She is one realtor I would chose."  ~ Kathryn M.

 "We are a very busy family of four and although we wanted to move to a larger home for many years, we kept putting it off because we did not know how to even begin to make it happen without adding more chaos to our lives. Carol was the answer for us! She patiently walked us through the process and was there to assist and encourage us every step of the way. She helped us to stage our house and we sold it close to the asking price, within less than a month. We were also concerned about finding the right home that we wanted in Clarksburg and had already seen everything else on the market when Carol found out about a potential seller that was not yet on the market. Carol arranged for us to get a sneak peek and we knew that house was perfect for our family. She helped to see that everything went very smoothly from the moment she listed our old home and all the way until we moved into our beautiful new home. I never hesitate to refer Carol to everyone that I meet who is looking to buy or sell real estate. She's the BEST!"  ~ Barbara M.

"We are writing to express our appreciation for the excellent work of Carol Schantz of your office in assisting us with selling our house in the Plantations area of Damascus & the purchase of our new home in Frederick.  What comes to mind first about Carol is that she does what she says she will do.  In a 'slow' real estate market we sold our home in 6 weeks for about $8,000 more than the comparables.  We have no doubt that Carol's commitment & professional skill made all the difference.  Carol provided us with sound advice on several matters relative to the listing & sale of our house.  She was active, supportive & caring throughout.  Showing us houses, Carol zeroed in on the sort of houses which appealed to us & previewed many of the houses we looked at.  As a result, our experience of house shopping with Carol was pleasant & efficient.  It goes without saying that we would recommend Carol to others."  ~ Celia Z.

We wish to recommend Carol Schantz for her conduct of the sale of our home in Derwood, MD.  Ours was a difficult property to market with a noisey major thoroughfare adjacent to the backyard.  Mrs. Schantz gave us excellent advice on decorating & preparing the house & yard to add to their appeal.  She developed a successful marketing campaign that brought a buyer within the first month & at 99% of our asking price.  Her follow-up was invaluable to us since we were moving out of state."  ~ Donald & Norma P.

"I want to take this opportunity to recommend Carol Schantz for 'Realtor of the Year,' if not the century.  She has worked diligently with me to sell my home & purchase another home in a very short time frame.  Synchronizing settlement dates, times, etc., to ensure a smooth transition is challenging, yet Carol was 100% effective in achieving our goal.  As my seller agent & then my buyer agent, she was unwavering in her persistence in ensuring I was happy with my decisions.  Clients benefit greatly from her expertise, dedication & professionalism.  She does not stop until her work is complete, & even then she continues to ensure her clients are well informed & pleased with the sale/purchase of their home.  Carol's sensitivity & support of my difficult situation made the whole experience bearable.  She goes above & beyond what's required of her."   ~ Christina C.

"We are writing to commend Carol Schantz -- thanks to her efforts, expertise & attitude we are finally settling into our first home.  Throughout the home-buying process we most appreciated Carol's personality & patience.  As first-time buyers, we were very apprehensive about buying a home.  It took us over 2 yrs. before we truly felt comfortable & ready to put a bid on a house.  During those 2 yrs. Carol worked with us by frequently sending us new listings, meeting us for countless showings, & even stepping aside when we felt we weren't so sure we were ready to buy a house.  During the course of our search we were approached by many Realtors, but in the end we contacted Carol because we knew she was friendly & easy to work with.  We were also impressed by her expertise & extensive connections.  Carol considerately translated complicated legal lingo & referred us to reliable home inspectors, insurance providers, builders, lending agents, etc.  Overall, the know-how & experience Carol brought to the table coupled with her easy-going but on-the-top-of-it nature helped make the whole experience a very positive & memorable one."   ~ Nicole L. & Robert C.

"I wanted to send you my appreciation for your help and coordination in getting the house. I really appreciate all your hard work and dedication. It really would not have been possible without your help and I appreciate it.  Thank you and I wish you all the best. I'll make sure to send work your way. You are an AMAZING woman."   ~ Georgiette
