Michael did a fantastic job listing and selling my property at 3321 Stanford Street and went above and beyond throughout the process. I was a remote seller living across the country during the sale of this home and Michael was my main point of contact on the east coast for any and all activities needed throughout the process. He was able to support the cleanup of the home after tenants who were living in the home moved out, arrange for all necessary contractors to come in and do their work and show the home and close with the right buyers. He was even able to provide support while on a personal vacation!
In addition to selling this property he was also the one to help me purchase it originally. He made that process seamless and made sure to keep in touch periodically when I was the homeowner - he even made some excellent recommendations for contractors when I needed work done.
Overall I highly recommend Michael McKenna and his team for anyone looking to buy or sell a home and would work with him again in a heartbeat. I cannot recommend him enough and you will not regret your decision to go with him and his team!
"Tricia was the perfect fit agent to help me sell my home. She's very knowledgeable was flexible to meet my needs and easy to work with from start to finish. Her hard work (even while on vacation) resulted in multiple offers within one week of listing and only days after the open house. She stepped me through the whole process and was very customer focused working through some last minute items before closing. I'd definitely recommend using Tricia if you want to sell your house quickly and I'm sure she's just as great on the buyer end."
"Erin Ankeny was a wonderful listing agent. She went above and beyond to market and sell my property. She spent a lot of time getting ready for open houses, setting up showings, and helping me find a buyer. Her responsiveness and flexibility made me very confident that she would sell my house, and I would recommend her to anyone listing a property." -John Breen
"Michael McKenna is amazing! He helped my family purchase our starter home in 2006. He helped sell that home in 2018 and worked around the clock to help us purchase our forever home. Michael is willing and able to answer any and all questions and ensures that the process for all involved goes smoothly. He went above and beyond and got to know my family and was able to recommend and take us to many homes that would fit the needs of my family. He was there every step of the way to guide us in the right direction. I would highly recommend Michael McKenna. If you pick Michael to help you sell and/or buy a home, you will not regret it!" -slampe4
"Tricia was patient with us as were were very specific in our search which took quite a while. Once we decided on a property and were ready to sell our house, she aided in staging and photography which ultimately led to our house being under contract in about 48 hours."
Mount Airy and the surrounding areas are lucky to have Denise! Her knowledge of the market in our area is superb. Thanks to her advice on staging and pricing, our home sold in one day, after the very first showing! She is very tech savvy and responsive, which is a must in this fast paced sellers market.
Hard working and honest. She was very open in telling us what we should do to stage our house for selling. House sold in one weekend!! Also, was always very responsive. She even was working on helping us buy our property while she was on a trip! Definitely would recommend Denise. She has years of experience and is incredibly easy to work with
Tricia was fantastic! She was dedicated to finding us a home in the area we chose and always found a time that worked best for us all. Once we found the house and the offer accepted, we took her up on all recommendations (mortgage provider, home inspector...) and we are SO glad we did. The entire process was so smooth and effortless, which says a lot in the house buying process. She is super knowledgeable and if she doesn't know something, she is honest about it and finds out, letting you know immediately. She took her time to explain everything to us and answered all our questions until we had an understanding. She kept us in the loop and still checks up on us even months after our closing date. On top of being amazing at her job, she is just an amazing person. She's super easy to get along with and really makes you feel you are in good hands. I cannot recommend her enough!!!
"I recently bought my third house. Pam was my Realtor. She was amazing. By far the best realtor I've ever worked with. I told her what I was looking for and where and within a very short time she sent me a list of possible house.
She listened to what I was looking for and by the second day I found the perfect house. Throughout the entire process (Finding a house, negotiating, and signing the contract) Pam was there. She responded to my Text, Emails or phone calls within hours even when I sent them late at night.
The sellers realtor was no where as good as Pam, but Pam constantly communicated with the sellers realitor to keep the process moving. Her dedication is unmatched. I had an expectation of what I would pay for the house, but she was able to talk the sellers down over $20,000. Also she is very easy to get along with.
When you meet her you don't feel like a client, but rather a friend. If you need a realitor who will work hard to find you the perfect place at the best price, I highly recommend Pam. I'm very confident you will be glad you did."
"Donnamarie was FABULOUS to work with. She is very knowledgeable and as first time Maryland homebuyers, she took us through the process from soup to nuts. She was EXTREMELY helpful and professional. It took us almost 2 years to find our house and she was very patient and accommodating!"
Frank Bozzonetti was my realtor. Frank is very personable, very polite & respectful, & didn't try to enforce his will on what I "should" buy. We based our search on the max monthly payment I was comfortable with, NOT based on what I qualified for. (I qualified for a MUCH more expensive home, but I didn't want the monthly payments that went with that price tag.)
So we determined what monthly payment I was comfortable with, & per the % at the time, we back-calculated what my purchase price cap was going to be. Then we decided what loan package was going to be the best option for me, a USDA Guaranteed loan, which determined what areas we could search for a home. I think, that from my initial contact with Frank to when I actually closed on a house, rounded off, was 3 months.
We were also on a time constraint. If I couldn't find something to make an offer on by a certain date, then I was going to have to rent instead. That meant Frank was going to have to have his homework done on the properties he was going to show me before we walked into them. It all worked out. Frank was very thorough, very knowledgeable, & very easy to work with. I would use Frank again if I needed his services, & I definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor.
If I would've had more time, I would have preferred using the USDA loan to buy a "fixer-upper" & I could've saved a lot more on my mortgage. There was one home I saw with Frank that would've worked perfectly as a fixer-upper because the price was low (a short-sale) & the home, given it's age, was in really good shape & in a nice area. So, my advice is: USE Frank... Go for the USDA Guaranteed Loan if you qualify, & give yourself enough time to go for a fixer-upper & use the USDA loan to "fix it up". (YES. You can use the USDA Loan to fix-up a home. If the lender says other wise, find a different lender, because the USDA website says you can use the loan to buy & renovate.)
Sincerely; Linda Moody
I rarely write reviews for anything but Donnamarie’s level of service and person ability surpassed our expectations. My parents and I tend to micro-manage, but we felt like Donnamarie had everything under control throughout the ENTIRE process. She was a true pro.
