Fred & Porche Henry, Buyers 2017

I had an amazing experience working with Lois on the purchase of my home in Columbia, M.D. I first met her at an Open House and she kept in touch with me and my husband for about a year until we were ready to purchase. She is an expert in the Howard County area because she lives here, which was very important to us. Lois has an exceptional team working with her and everyone was very helpful throughout the buying process, ensuring the experience was clear and easy at each step. She recommended great service providers including mortgage lenders, home inspectors, and insurance groups. Lois and her team really show care and attention with the families they serve and they are committed to our community.

David & Ruthie Egan, Buyers 2017

Lois provided great insight in the home buying process! She was recommended to us by several friends with whom Lois helped buy and sell their homes. As first time home buyers we couldn't have done it without her assistance! We appreciated her knowledge of the area and honest feedback. Lois understood our needs and desires and guided us as we moved through every step. She did an excellent job helping us write a winning offer for our first home. We would definitely recommend her to any friends or family!

Gene & Amy Gallaher, Sellers/Buyers, 2017

What is there NOT to say about Lois Leahy. A true professional and real estate legend! Not only did she find us our dream home in a methodical and effective way, she also gave us the confidence (in her selling skills and approach) needed to offer on it without the contingency of selling our old home. Just as we planned, we closed on our new home and she sold our old home in two days! Just a fantastic experience for our entire family and Lois and Lee Anne are literally now friends of our family. Lois not only knows EVERYONE in the business, she has relationships that get you prompt service at reasonable rates. She had professionals moving our house hold goods, sanding and staining floors, painting walls, landscaping...you name it, she knew the best people and businesses to do it! Two months after we were settled and moved in, she hosted and managed our open house celebration of over 70+ people. A very nice touch to an already masterful job. Lois - The front door is always open for you!! Big hugs.

Matt Bachinski, Seller 2017

Lois' thorough knowledge of the Columbia market along with the buying and selling process is extremely helpful through out the entire selling transaction. Combine that with a persistent drive and you get an agent well suited for whatever may come your way.

Sean & Kim Davidson, Buyers 2017

Our experience with Lois and her assistant Lee Anne was excellent. We have known her for a few years and have recommended her to others before we were in the house-buying market. We were not disappointed when we went through the buying process with her ourselves, though she doesn't do short sales on a regular basis, she navigated the territory well and was able to get us answers to our questions. One benefit to working with Lois that we didn't expect is that she works closely with her assistant (Lee Anne) who is responsive to and skilled at the administrative side of the real estate transaction. To anyone in the house-hunting market, we highly recommend her services

Matthew Lawton & Jessica Winkles, Sellers 2016

It was a pleasure working with Lois and her team. She was very helpful in providing suggestions to get the house "sale ready". We were initially under contract in less than a week. Lois also has a deep network of professionals (HVAC, handy person, cleaners) that we still regularly utilize. I think   Lois' best attribute is her negotiating skills. She provided sound advice while also going to bat for us in both the price and home inspection negotiations, which provided tangibly better results than we otherwise would have had.  

Holly Stagmer & David Ratajski, Sellers 2016

Lois and Lee Anne are wonderful to work with. They facilitated every step of the process. They came up with viable alternatives for every snag we ran into, and they were numerous. Their follow up is superb. I have already recommended Lois to several of my neighbors.

Charles Beardsley & Lisa Smirnow, Sellers 2016

We wanted to give you a sincere “thanks” for helping us sell our house. You know the business very well and really went to bat for us. You were reliable in every way. We do appreciate that! We also like you personally and it was a pleasure doing business with you. 

Terry Scott, Seller 2016

Lois and her assistant Lee Anne were very helpful as we navigated this process. They made the process as easy as possible as they helped answer any questions that we had. Lois’ experience is noteworthy as she would be able to assist with any issues that may come up with the real estate process. She was able to accurately suggest staring price and helped with decisions made to upgrade the house prior to sale. Together it helped us get through all aspects of the complicated process with little issue and less stress. Overall, I would highly recommend her as we had a positive experience with her and her team!  

Carol and Jerry Foarde, Sellers 2016

Lois has lived and worked in Columbia for many years. As our former neighbor, we knew she would understand and appreciate our neighborhood and home. She knew what the market was and priced our home accordingly. After only 3 weeks on the market we got several offers and settled 2 weeks later. Lois and her staff were very professional and knowledgeable and helped us with all aspects of our sale, including help regarding downsizing and staging. We would highly recommend using Lois for the sale of your home. 

Nora Grace & Barker French, Sellers/Buyers 2016

Lois and her team are excellent! We both bought a home and sold a home using Lois' services. She's knowledgeable and responsive. Her background as an appraiser is beneficial as a buyer especially. She gave us lots of great ideas as we were preparing our home to sell. Her attention to detail is imperative and keeps everyone on the same page. Excellent project management--got us to the finish line on both the buy and sell. Highly recommend Lois!

Rob & Kris Ricigliano, Buyers 2016

 We were buying from out of state and could not have done this without Lois. She was very efficient and effective. We had to make our offer and get pre-approved for a mortgage in less than 8 hours on a Saturday and Lois made it happen

Kevin & Terri Monaghan, Buyers 2016

We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us! You were so easy to work with and helped us in so many ways! We LOVE our home and cannot wait to officially move in! The signing could not have gone more smooth! Again thank you for everything. 

Ryan & Abby Flynn, Buyers 2016

Lois was patient and attentive to me and my husband who were buying our first home. She was able to offer us practical advice as first-time home buyers and really helped guide us to the right choice. I would definitely recommend Lois to anyone looking to buy a home in the area! 

Brian & Maggie Cullinane, Buyers 2016

We worked with Lois based on the recommendation of several co-workers who had worked with her, and we were very happy. She was very responsive to get us in for showings, which was important considering how fast properties move. We were first time home buyers who were a bit naïve, and she helped us through all the way. Helped us get a great loan, home inspector, and title company - all of whom I would also recommend. They worked well together and made the process work much more fluidly.

Aaron & Kaye Stallings, Buyers 2016

Lois initially helped us find a home to rent when moving to Maryland from Florida. Since we did not have the opportunity to visit the area before moving, we relied on Lois to find us a suitable property. She went above and beyond when helping us, by Skyping us from a property so we could see the home’s interior. She gave great guidance too on paperwork as we had not rented a home in some time. Following us renting for a year Lois helped us purchase a home. She responded very quickly to our requests to view homes, was knowledgeable about the area, answered all of our many questions and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Lois if you are looking to either rent or buy a home.  

Barry Cohen, Seller 2015

Lois, thanks for the intense attention to all aspects of house preparation, marketing options and staging. You made it look easy, but the experience showed through. Great communication with family and contractors to expedite presentation, listing, and sale. I like your style!

Erica Harrigan, Buyer 2015

Lois Leahy is an outstanding realtor and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to purchase a new home. Her knowledge of homes and the home buying process is truly impressive and my family and I felt she always had our interests in mind as she showed us homes. Once we found the right home, the rest of the process was quick and seamless. I could not be happier about the service she provided, and I am thrilled that she was recommended to me.  

Sam and Nancy Andelman, Sellers 2015

Lois pre-staged our house and gave us professional opinions on how to sell it quickly. When finished, the house looked better than the day we bought it 27 years ago. The house sold in one day at full price. Thank you Lois for making this a memorable experience. When we hired you, you said your track record was a sale in less than 30 days. I think you helped us set a record! I would recommend Lois to anyone wanting to sell their house. 

Aaron & Kaye Stallings, Renters 2015

Lois helped us find a home to rent when moving to Maryland from Florida. Since we did not have the opportunity to visit the area before moving, we relied on Lois to find us a suitable property. She went above and beyond when helping us by Skyping us from a property so we could see the homes interior. She gave great guidance too on paperwork as we had not rented a home in some time. I would highly recommend Lois if you are looking to either rent or buy a home.

Becky Temple, Seller 2015

 Incredibly helpful from start to finish. She helped me to plan for "thinning down" for staging. She was able to get me matched with great contractors to help with repairs. She priced the house so well we were under contract after the first weekend of showings! She was so supportive through the process getting to closure - negotiating with the buyers agent, helping to get all of the contractors lined up and keeping me reassured through the whole process. Great agent! So thankful I made the decision to work with her to sell my house.

Bill & Kathy Brake, Sellers 2015

We had a great experience working with Lois as she is professional, friendly, knowledgeable realtor. She represented us when we bought our house and she represented us when we sold. I would definitely use her again and would recommend her to anyone else. She knows the area and her 21 years of experience shows. Thanks Lois. 

Hanna Nevin & Brad Skove, Buyers 2015

Lois has incredible knowledge of the housing market. As a first time home buyer, my husband and I are extremely happy with the service we received from Lois. She was very thorough and quick to respond. Lois took much time showing us houses in different counties, responding to emails, and answering questions frequently. Overall, I would highly recommend her services. 

Jeff & Kim Baldwin, Sellers 2015

I would highly recommend Lois. Her expertise made the selling process relatively painless and fast. We priced the home right and made renovations that were needed to sell the house. My first realtor said I could get a lot more for the house with no renovations needed but it failed to sell. I fired him and went with Lois, and I am happy that I did.

Erin & Brent Ault, Sellers/Buyers 2015

Lois was nothing short of exceptional in our process to sell our home as well as purchase a new home. It had been 11 years since we had been through the process, and she handled each and every situation with professionalism and grace. Additionally, her staff was equally as responsive and helpful. I highly recommend Lois for all your home search needs!  

Kevin & Naweichi, Buyers, 2014

Lois is the most professional agent one could ask for. Lois helped us purchase our home in a highly competitive market. She was very thorough, responsive, and cared more about what we wanted rather than getting us to just buy.  Lois is very patient - knows her real estate market and very personable. It was truly a pleasure working with her and her team. 

 

 

Javier and Joanne Inclan, Seller 2014

You and Lee Anne were amazing throughout this very stressful process. You always understood and accepted where we were coming from, and always provided good advice and guidance. We are so very glad we selected you as our representative, and have not (and will not) hesitate to recommend you to those seeking a real estate agent. Thank you, again, for both of your hard work and dedication. We always felt as if we were your most important client due to the exceptional customer service you provided. Please keep in touch - we certainly will. 

Paula Shockley, Buyer, Seller, 2014

 I found Lois to be a professional who cares. It was good to have her and Lee Anne on my side during the buying/selling process!

Dan Melnick, Buyer 2014, Seller 2013

Last year I sought a realtor to help me sell my home. My girlfriend recommended Lois Leahy, whom she worked with several times before. Lois was extremely professional. She walked me through the process of a home sale. She was honest and straightforward as to what I needed to do to get my home ready for sale, and helped me find the right people for minor repairs and painting. I had three serious offers within the first week. I couldn't have been happier. The following year, my now fiancee and I were interested in moving into a ranch style house in Columbia. Lois kept us up to date on what was available, was extremely patient as narrowed down what we were looking for, and withih a few months we found the right home for us. Lois and her team couldn't have been more helpful in guiding us towards an acceptable bid. A year ago I was in search for a realtor. I found a great one, as well as a new friend.

Jennifer Denhard & Decio Moreira, Sellers 2014

Lois Leahy is an amazing professional who knows the market and understands the concerns of both buyers and sellers. We knew as soon as we met her that she would sell our house quickly, and we were right. Her professionalism, her energy, and her expertise are an unbeatable combination. No hurdle along the way is a match for her resourcesfulness and sharp negotiation skills. If you're selling your house, you really owe it to yourself to go to Lois first. 

Len & Ann Guralnick, Sellers 2013

Ann and I couldn't be more pleased with the representation we received from Keller Williams and more specifically from you and Lee Anne.  Both of you were there every step of the way and made our home selling experience a very pleasant one. I don't think most people realize how much you do from the beginning to end of the process. You helped us get our house ready for sale, did an outstanding job marketing our home, answered all of our questions along the way and dealt with the many important details without ever slowing down.  We thank you for that. Please don't hesitate to use us a references; we think you're the best.

Jesssica Ruzz, Buyer 2013, 2007& 2000, Seller 2007

This is the third time I’ve worked with Lois... Each time, Lois has operated with a level of professionalism and expertise matched only by her warmth and compassion. She's helped find the RIGHT home and was unafraid to advise against a particular property if it didn't suit our needs. Then she made the entire process as smooth and clear as possible. I was able to rely on Lois and Lee Anne, who was an integral part of the process, for advice and reassurance. I consider Lois not just my Realtor, but a trusted friend. The process can be intimidating no matter what the real estate market is like - and working with Lois is the best gift buyers and sellers can give themselves.

Emily & Aaron Shreve, Buyers 2013

Lois was very responsive, helpful, and provided encouragement when we needed it throughout the home-buying process.

Bill & Cris Garrity, Sellers 2013

The marketing plan was excellent. You were always just a phone call away. You provided great confidence to us, always letting us know that we had a beautiful home and had nothing to worry about. I would do everything the same. Great job!!

Ingrid Williams, Buyer 2013

You couldn’t be nicer or more encouraging. Your help when I had bad days was important. As a realtor, you have everything covered. I was very impressed.

Joy Murphy & Jim Campbell, Buyers 2012

Lois did such a good job picking houses that fit my needs and compiling schedules for looking at each property quickly and efficiently under my tight deadline!

Charles & Bill Phelps, Seller 2012

My two brothers and I were faced with the tremendous task of de-cluttering a large home and getting it in saleable condition. Lois offered suggestions on who to contact for all of the work to be done. Her experience and network of associates provided us with excellent help for all of the phases of work, from de-cluttering to the final staging. Throughout the entire process Lois was very generous with her time and made countless trips to the house. She made a to-do list, selected paint colors, and planned a décor theme for the house. The house went through a terrific transformation and was beautiful when finished. Lois knew from her years of experience knew that people looked at houses during the Thanksgiving holiday. She pulled out all the stops to have the house listed in time for the holiday and it sold in less than one week!

Laura Topper, Buyer/Seller 2012

 
You told me exactly what I would need to do to prep my house for sale, gave me a time line, and made sure that I kept to it. You were very detailed and descriptive… When I found the house I wanted to buy, you made sure I understood the pros and cons without pushing me to make a hasty decision. When it looked like settlement would be delayed, you fought by yourself to get it done in time for us to move in as planned. No doubt in my mind that if I had not had you as a realtor, I would have never made it to this wonderful house. Please allow anyone that hesitates to choose you as their realtor to call me.  I will convince them that you are the ONE AND ONLY!

Wendell & Lesley Hanes, Buyers 2012

 
You were very accessible and knowledgeable about all aspects of purchasing a home from start to finish. You provided great recommendations for us throughout the process. You were present at all the pivotal points in the purchase process.

David Via, Seller 2012

 
Lois went well beyond my expectations! I have been highly satisfied working with her.
 

Mike & Jess Poetker, Sellers 2012

 
You have made this a relatively painless experience and have gone above and beyond. We just want to relay that we appreciate it and know how hard you have worked.

Phyllis Mason, Seller 2012

 
Lois followed through on all issues – outlined the procedures and important issues that may arise…very thorough on all areas of moving.
 

Jenn & Mike Aballo, Seller 2011

 
Lois is a professional and expert at what she does. My husband and I were very happy with our experience selling our home with Lois and we look forward to buying a new home with her in the future! We also loved Lois’ ability to set a goal for our process and achieve it. She told us her goal was to sell our home in 30 days and we had a contract in two weeks!  We will definitely recommend her to our friends

David Via & Tara Chapman, Buyers 2011

 
Lois remained patientas we looked at many town homes. We really wanted to move into a particular neighborhood and she went door-to-door…Without her persistence, we never would have gotten a home in the neighborhood we wanted!
 

Jim & Judy Bemis, Sellers 2011

 
Was a professional, realistic counselor about selling the house, and aggressive in getting it prepared and staged to sell. Given that we got a contract within two weeks of listing, she couldn’t have done any better, especially in such a tight, buyer’s market.

Kathy & Glenn Babcock, Sellers 2011

 
You promised a certain level of service and delivered more. Your diligence and attention to detail made our home sale successful. If problems arose, you had a solution or knew where to go to get the solution. Your advice was sound, enabling us to get an offer 10 days after placing the house on the market.

Jim & Amanda Goss, Buyers 2011

 
You made yourself available whenever we had a question…you explained everything in great detail and we felt very comfortable using you as our realtor! Despite the fact that we bought a short sale…you were amazing and patient with us. Thank you for helping us get our dream home!

Tara Chapman, Seller 2011

 
Lois made many recommendations that all worked in selling my condo. After all the work was done, my condo looked like new! I trusted Lois and she was right. I see why other places don’t sell. Other realtors must not be telling sellers what to do to get a place sold.
 

JR Kish, Seller 2011

 
Before listing with Lois, our house did not sell after 131 days on the market…Lois quickly looked at the house, figured out the issues, and coordinated the changes on our behalf, within our budget. The house then sold in one week! Although we live in Hawaii, she was able to accommodate the long distance and kept in contact on every issueexcellent communication, made recommendations to reputable contractors, listened to our needs. We were very pleased!

Paul Kroft & Michelle Yeh, Buyers 2011

 
You were extremely patient and wonderful about not pushing us into a house until the right one came along…You always made yourself available. Thank you for previewing houses for us. Buying a house from out-of-state is not easy but we felt better and were well taken care of working with you… I can’t thank you enough for working with us.

Mike Kelly, Buyer 2011

 
Thanks for a smooth closing and a pleasant home-buying experience…couldn't have asked for a better rep….kept the purchase process moving forward…staging was key in this sale.

TJ and Sue Jenkins, Seller/Buyer 2011

 
Lois and Lee Anne were so competent, professional, warm and incredibly thorough.  We felt confident that we were getting the very best service.
 

Kathryn Gurbuz, Seller 2010

 
You did a wonderful job. You gave 100%. When there was a problem, you had a solution. You were able to always keep us moving forward, by giving excellent advice! …coming up with new & fresh ideas to sell the house. We were extremely pleased with your service…you went above & beyond my expectations. I will make sure our friends and clients know what a fantastic job you did and that we would highly recommend you and your team!
 

Catherine Blackwell, Buyer 2010

 One word can sum up my experience working with Lois Leahy … FANTASTIC! …I set up an appointment with her not giving her much lead time and she was able to accommodate my scheduleShe truly had my best interest at heart and fought very hard to make it happen. Lois is very flexible, she really listens, extremely attentive, ALWAYS prepared, ALWAYS calls you back and most importantly she cares. I never felt it was about the commission for her. She's awesome to work with and I highly recommend her. Lois Leahy is my agent of choice! Thanks Lois, I LOVE my new house!  

Mark & Rebecca Letterman, Buyer 2010

 
You were patient…you were great at brain storming. I knew you were on our side, you were like a “bull dog” and defended our position with mortgage company, title company, etc. Your knowledge and experience made sure we weren’t taken advantage of!
 

Mark & Esra Martin, Buyer 2010

 
You were always prompt with replies either via phone or e-mail …always well organized during our search process…made the best use of time. The house was well marketed and advice was useful. You made the process relatively simple.

Matt Robertson, Buyer 2010

 
Trusting a complete stranger to look out for your best interest is a hard thing to do…as the process progressed, my trust in Lois continued to grow to the point where there was no doubt in my mind that I had the right person on my side…As far as being professional and knowledgeable, I don’t think I could ask for anyone better…Anytime there was a question or concern I always had an answer…almost immediately…It was an excellent decision on my part to use Lois as my agent…Overall I rate my realtor experience as a 10 out of 10.

Charlotte Watchinski, Buyer 2009

 
You promptly returned my calls whenever I called, even on weekends. You showed me listings in my price range. You listened to what my needs were in a house and pointed out what the house had to offer that met those needs. You were always professional in your dealings.

Stacy Mallare, Buyer 2009

 
Very personable. Did very well at anticipating my specific needs and preferences.
 

Robert & Sheri Bachmann, Seller 2009

 
Patience – kindness, caring, patience!

I would highly recommend you! ...You will do whatever it takes to get the home sold quickly.
 

Matthew & Catharine Anders, Buyers 2008

 
Lois has been our biggest support during this very exciting time. She is persistent and found us exactly what we were looking for! We couldn’t be happier with our experience.

Lois Leahy is the true professional of her craft. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and honest, punctual, an excellent communicator and negotiator. Lois was always prepared and on time, very efficientWorking with her was a true pleasure and as well, a great education.

Billy & Emily Graham, Seller 2008

 
We would like to express our appreciation for the effort you put in to helping us sell our home….It was wonderful to be able to have complete confidence in you and what you do. I’d recommend you without any reservation … as you made what is usually a stressful, difficult ordeal much easier and more enjoyable through your knowledge and expertise. We also appreciate your honest integrity and the fact that you are truly a nice person!  You are definitely one of Howard County’s best!

Sharyn Yenzer, Buyer/Seller 2008

 
You are wonderful! You kept me calm throughout this entire process.

Matt Bennett & Kristen Olsen, Buyer 2008

 
We were very pleased with how easy it was to work with you! We really appreciate how easy it was to reach you and how willing you were to work around our schedules. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Thanks a million!

Lois is a very personable, honest and committed realtor. Working with Lois is like working with your good friend. She went above duty to get what we needed and got us the house we wanted. Highly recommend her! Thanks, Lois!

Clyde Rawlins, Seller 2007

 
Your service was truly above and beyond the scope of a realtor’s duties.  If you were a lawyer you would be a powerful force to go against.  I would and will recommend your services to all of my peers and to anyone looking for assistance.  Thank you for everything!

Mary Ann Wiles, Seller 2007

 
Just a huge Thank You!  Very thorough, prompt and attentive to my thoughts, ideas, etc…Has helped me sell two homes now and if ever needed I would use again.

Jessica Ruzz & Sam Mancuso , Buyers & Sellers 2007

 
Too many good things to write in this space – you were with us every step of the way!  We came back after 7 years because we knew no one could do it better.  Thanks for everything!

J. William Bimestefer, Buyer 2007

 
The best comment I can make to reflect my complete satisfaction with Lois as our agent is:  If I were to purchase a home again, Lois would be my first choice and I would highly recommend Lois to my best friends as a Real Estate Agent to sell or buy a home.

Frank & Sandy Lyman , Sellers 2007

 
The last thing in professionalism and personal concern.  We couldn’t be more satisfied with the extra effort and skill that Lois showed at every stage.

Michael and Karen Allison, Buyers 2005
