Five Star Service:
Hear from Our Happy Customers!

 

EXTREMELY HIGH CUSTOMER FOCUS

“There is no ‘awesome’ enough testimony for Janet’s professional work as our realtor. We embarked on a joint family construction/build journey with a land purchase all at the same time. This ‘adventure’ had so many unknowns through just the process to closing – Janet was our ‘go-to’ for the details, process explanation and re-assurance that ‘all is well’! What a relief!!! Janet is well connected within her professional network and would seek additional information from her colleagues – it was never a case of ‘I think.” Janet works from facts through her research of any issue that you may encounter. Her work is ‘trusted’, extremely timely, and with an extremely high customer focus. Stay tuned, as in approximately a year, Janet will be the realtor selling our current home in Germantown!”

—The Logemans, Buyers

 

COULD NEVER THANK HIM ENOUGH!

“Finding a home is not easy but Mike is the guy who helps you make the process a little less painful. He’s also a handyman and that really is a huge plus, to ensure that your future home is not a lemon. His ability to explain even the smallest details really helps for decision making. He never forces you to anything. I gained a really good friend at the end of it all. I could never thank him enough!”

—Gail C., Buyer

 

COMPASSION AND CARE

“It was an emotionally difficult decision to sell our family home of 20 years, and when we did, we turned to Janet without hesitation. Thanks to her expertise, what could have been a very stressful experience was instead a positive one. Her availability to answer every question we had and her help in scheduling last-minute small repairs illustrate her dedication and sheer kindness, as we were living three hours away in PA while we readied our family home in MD for sale. It goes without saying that we could not have sold our home as quickly as we did nor at the price, had it not been for Janet’s wise guidance. Most importantly, the compassion and care she showed from the listing to the closing made leaving our family home a bearable milestone, not an excruciating one, and we truly appreciate that. The whole process for us was seamless. Thank you, Janet!”

—Kris and Ken S., Sellers

 

VERY NICE AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE

“Michael is very personable and approachable. He listened to our questions, interests and what we were looking for regarding selling our home. He is not a high pressure realtor, which is why we agreed to use his services. I have dealt with high pressure realtors who just want the sale at any cost and Michael was not and, as a result, we felt he was the best to serve our family when it came to selling the house. I would definitely recommend anyone to him. Very nice and very knowledgeable.”

—Janice W., Seller

 

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

“We recently purchased a lot to build our dream, forever home on and Janet truly made the experience easy. Buying a lot and building a home is not the easiest of endeavors and we were not familiar with the process; Janet went out of her way to ensure everything was done correctly and all details were checked. Working with Janet was a wonderful experience, she was readily available whenever needed and kept us and the seller on the ball to keep the process moving. We are so thankful for her expertise and guidance throughout the process, we truly could not have done it without her!”

—Laura B., Buyer

 

FANTASTIC REALTOR!

“Janet is a fantastic realtor! We were new to the area and didn’t know anything about the competitive Maryland market. With her local insights, Janet guided us through our range of priorities and found us the perfect home. In the midst of multiple bids, we were still able to get our home at a great price. If you need someone to go to bat for you, Janet is the one! ”

—Dwight and Jessica Y., Buyer

 

TOP NOTCH REALTOR!

“Mike is an outstanding professional! He helped us with the purchase of our first house in King Farm. He guided us throughout the entire process and made sure we felt comfortable every step of the way. We felt like he was always advocating for our needs and interests. Mike is thorough, professional, easygoing, efficient, and overall a top notch realtor! We would highly recommend him!”

—Cristina J. and Steve S., Buyer

 

PATIENT AND TRANSPARENT

“Mike’s great! He was very patient and transparent with us. Even though the process was getting complicated as the pandemic hit, he was always responsive and did everything he could to get us the house we want. He’s also super knowledgeable; as first time home buyers, we learned so much from him!”

—Rotana A., Buyer

 

AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE

“Janet has been an absolute pleasure to work with during the purchase of our first home. She helped us successfully navigate an opposing bidder; recommended a great lender and an exceptional home inspector; and worked to smoothen what could have been a difficult closing process. She is also a very kind person who gave our 2-year old daughter her own closing gift. She has kept in touch to make sure we are happy in our home. We highly recommend her services.”

—Kate H., Buyer

 

KIND, PATIENT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE

“Janet helped me find a house for purchase. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Janet. She is kind, patient and knowledgeable about the housing market. She referred me to a wonderful lender to obtain my loan. The whole process was less stressful due to her expertise, professionalism and patience. I highly recommend her.”

—Lynne E., Buyer

 

OPEN, HONEST, RELIABLE

“Mike is the most open, honest, and reliable real estate agent I’ve ever met (and I’ve met plenty). He stuck with us for two years while we contemplated a move back to the US and found us great places to see, without any pressure or tricky techniques to get us into something we couldn’t afford. On the other end, he kept a gentle contact for over a year while we arranged another move to California, ultimately selling our house for a good price. And it’s clear that he loves his work and cares for the people he works with.”

—Bob J., Seller

 

KNOWLEDGEABLE AND FUN TO WORK WITH

“Michael is great! Professional as well as knowledgeable and fun to work with. He is very good at his job!”

—Teresa D., Buyer

 

STRENGTH, SKILL AND PERSISTENCE

“It is my delight to write in recognition of our outstanding realtor Janet Harward. My family had to undertake an emotionally difficult sale of some property with a complex profile including a unique legacy home. We first contracted with another realtor who was unable to move the property or manage its marketing in a reassuring fashion. Finally we turned instead to Janet, which we quickly realized was the best decision we could have made. Her thorough knowledge of the marketplace and seasoned experience in assessing potential buyers inspired tremendous confidence, confidence then rewarded when we received multiple offers for our property.  And when the buyers’ own loan officers complicated the picture with bureaucracy, Janet managed the issues skillfully and wisely, counseling us about what to hold out for, and how best to proceed. A sale that could have been wrenching for our family was satisfyingly brought to a close by her strength, skill and persistence. Without hesitation I would refer any of my friends to her; she carries with her my highest recommendation.”

—Brian N., Seller

 

NO PRESSURE

“Mike and I worked together off and on for over 2 years. We looked at many homes and locations and then I decided the timing wasn’t right for me to buy yet. Mike was very relaxed and told me no pressure, he would be here when I’m ready. When I reached out to Mike again, he was happy to help and we picked up right where we left off! This time I was able to hone in on what exactly I was looking for and where. Within just WEEKS we found the place that is now my home!!”

 

WILLINGNESS TO GO ABOVE & BEYOND

“I want to sincerely thank you for the excellent service and support you provided during the marketing and recent sale of our home. We truly appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond to help us out at all times during the process. We really could not have done it without you.

Buying and selling real estate can be a very tricky and overwhelming process on either side, and as we considered selling our home initially, finding a reliable and trustworthy realtor was first and foremost on our minds. After talking to several potential realtors, we located you and Mike, and it was a great fit on our end. You were always available for a quick question, you were respectful of our timing, and you were highly responsive to any issues we ran into.  Your superior customer service and dedication really allowed us to relax as sellers, which made the whole experience very positive. That made all the difference for us. ”

—Sarah P. M., Seller

 

YOU WERE A HELPFUL GUIDE

“Thank you for being a very helpful guide and friend throughout our buying a home and selling our much-loved home.”

—Kay and Tom B., Buyer and Seller

 

INCREDIBLE WORK ETHIC, FLEXIBILITY, CREATIVITY

“As first-time home buyers, my wife and I approached the process with a bit of trepidation. The decision to work with Mike Colopy was a great decision, and made the rest of the purchasing process incredible easy! We were extremely impressed with Mike’s local knowledge, incredible work ethic, flexibility, creativity, and due diligence throughout the entire selection, inspection, and closing process. His availability at any time of the day helped put our minds at ease, and his management and thoughtfulness throughout the transaction allowed us to close on time and at our desired price in spite of some complications with securing a mortgage. For all of these reasons we would highly recommend Mike Colopy as a real estate agent, no matter your objective – whether you are looking to buy or sell. He’s a true professional, and a great guy! We look forward to working with Mike again.”

—Alex T., Buyer

 

KNOWLEDGEABLE, ARTICULATE, HONEST

“It was a pleasure working with Janet Harward as my realtor in selling my home. Selling a home in today’s market is a complicated process, but Janet assisted me throughout the sale of my home, made it seem effortless and, at the end, we were able to sell it in the time frame I needed. Janet kept me updated with all changes, requests by the buyer, and state regulations. She was honest about the price I should list my home, the approximate sale date she anticipated it would take to sell, all the while maintaining a professional manner. Janet is knowledgeable, articulate, honest and just a wonderful person to work with. I would advise anyone looking for a Realtor to consider Janet Harward. You will not be disappointed.

—Catherine R., Seller

 

HANDS DOWN THE BEST

“Mike Colopy was hands down the best realtor we have worked with! I had an exhaustive list of things I was looking for, and within two weeks we had found the perfect home, seamlessly. (He even saved me when I was stuck outside the new home with my infant son on move in day with a dead battery in the garage remote!) The knowledge, responsiveness, and attitude makes Mike stand out from the rest.”

—Nicole D., Renter

COULDN’T BE HAPPIER

“We couldn’t be happier with our new ‘forever home.’ And we couldn’t be happier that we bumped into you at an Open House because, otherwise, we never would have found the home that checks off nearly all of our wishes. You also did a great job of selling our previous home. Thank you!”

—Tom & Michelle P., Seller and Buyer
