"I can say without reservation that I would recommend Stephen Mercer to anyone in need of a friendly, unbiased and knowledgable buyer's agent-he was fantastic!"
"Whether it’s your tenth home or your first (like us), you can’t go wrong hiring Stephen Mercer." He provides everything you would expect from an agent- prompt responses to all text messages and emails, knowledge of the market, ability to explain the complexities of buying a home in simple terms. However, what sets Stephen Mercer apart was his background in contracting work, his ethics, and his genuine kindness.
So many things about buying a home are stressful, overwhelming, and scary, especially if it’s the first time. Lucky for us, we had Stephen Mercer to guide us reassuringly through the chaos. Stephen is not only a great real estate agent, but he also understands that the decision to buy a home is an emotional one. He is thorough, smart, patient, and funny. He is discerning and critical while also being supportive and positive. Our search for our first home had a few bumps and snags, but Stephen never doubted that we would find what we were looking for.
This review is long overdue, but we wanted to take a minute to say that buying our home with Lisa Velenovsky Hayashi was a wonderful experience. We didn’t anticipate the hectic housing market that we would be entering starting in January 2021, and as first-time homebuyers, we were so grateful to have Lisa to explain everything step by step. It took us several offers (10+) to find our home, but Lisa was always so encouraging, and was genuinely excited with us when we were the winning bid!
They are exclusive buyer agents so there are no biases or conflicts of interest. That’s what really appealed to me.
We had a great experience with Victoria and HomeBuyer Brokerage. As both out of state and first time home buyers we are so happy to have had her on our side. She greatly reduced the stress and concerns of the home buying process. Again and again she went above and beyond our expectations of the services that a buyers agent would provide.Victoria is highly experienced in the real estate field, prompt, responsive and incredibly supportive. We highly recommend Victoria and HomeBuyer Brokerage to any would-be home buyers in the DMV area
First-time buyer? Or, were you turned off by your last experience with a Realtor? Feel safe and supported again by using an "exclusive buyer's agent" Thank goodness a friend referred me to them! We moved to Silver Spring, MD in late 2018 and were ready to buy a house for the first time...I had some trepidation because from afar, and for many years as a renter, the process of actually buying property had seemed intimidating and fraught with conflicts of interest. What I learned is that one CAN avoid those risks and fears (which are for real) - but only by working with an "exclusive buyer's agent" like Vic and Marshall. They truly represented us, with no hidden allegiances to the seller. They don't work with sellers, at all! They're all about the buyer and fighting for them...And I could feel that difference...
Victoria and Marshall are absolutely the best! My wife and I were first-time home buyers, and they held our hands every step of the way. They were always patient and literally made us feel comfortable to ask them anything. The market currently (2021), is insane. It takes experts to help and strategize on creating the right offer. Victoria and Marshall are skilled and experienced in making sure their clients have a fighting chance to compete in this market. We not only gained a great home, but we also met a great couple who we call friends.
