Bought a Condo home in 2017 in Chevy Chase, MD. Primary point of contact: David Wagner Dave Wagner is top-notch: he is extraordinarily helpful and astute. I trust him completely. I am living in London and purchasing in Chevy Chase--a situation that is difficult to begin with. Throughout, Dave was responsive, thorough, and professional. He worked very hard to represent and protect my interests. No question was too small for Dave to take the time to answer. Living abroad for many years meant that I had a lot of questions, which Dave answered completely and quickly. Highly responsive, Dave is the ultimate professional. I am grateful to him for his help.
Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Horizon Hill, Potomac, MD 20854. Super group. We are very impressed with the fast and professional service that we received from Dave and Lise group.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Bethesda, MD. Primary point of contact: David Wagner David Wagner works with Lise Howe. I have used him in over five or six different transactions with both selling and purchasing properties. Have purchased and sold for both personal and investment needs. Investment purchases needs a lot more work including a firm understanding of financials and the real estate market. Dave has been great in all the transactions exemplifying patience and a sense of humor. Highly recommend Dave and Lise. They also have a ton of contacts specific to closing, attorneys, repairs, landscaping, upgrades etc. You won't go wrong with Dave.
Bought and sold a Townhouse home in 2017 in Wiehle Ave - Reston Pky, Reston, VA. Primary point of contact: Dave Wagner After my husband got a new job in Virginia, we knew where to turn - Dave Wagner. He previously sold us our home in Maryland just two years ago. Now, we needed to both sell our home and buy a new place in Virginia. My husband had been enduring a 2+ hour commute each way for a long time so we wanted to move quickly. Dave did an exceptional job and I will always work with him in the future. He was very responsive and very thorough in his responses. He was both our buyers and sellers agent. He quickly understood our needs and identified good options for homes to look at. Our house was sold in under a week! I highly recommend Dave and his team!
Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Rockville, MD. Primary point of contact: Dave Wagner Had a wonderful experience with Dave Wagner while searching for a new home in Maryland! He was able to recommend several great choices based on what we were looking for, he helped us look at quite a few options in person, and when it came down to the house we wanted he helped us create a competitive bid which beat out at least two others. Every step from initial contact to closing was super easy. He is an excellent communicator, very knowledgeable about Maryland real estate, and I never once had to follow up and ask if something was being done...he was on top of everything. This was a huge relief because we were looking for houses during a time that we had started new jobs, had killer commutes, and literally had almost no brain power or energy to be worrying about if our deal was on track. If you like someone who is easy to work with, friendly, flexible, super knowledgeable, and very organized and detail oriented, Dave is your man.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Bowie, MD. I honestly wish I could give them 6 stars! I had met a Keller Williams associate while on vacation. She only did Virginia realty and I was looking to be in Maryland, so she referred me to Dave Wagner. It was the best thing that ever happened to my rental search. My fiancee and I are moving from Kansas, and didn't have a way to come and view rental properties, other than online, which isn't the most reliable way to find a place. Dave took careful note of what we wanted (particularly the pet friendly aspect which we were really struggling to find properties that allowed pets), and sent us tons of beautiful properties. He was also willing to investigate any properties we found on our own. Then, for the properties we really loved and were considering taking, he actually went to the property, and did a live Facetime tour with me! When we were unavailable, he took video and sent it to us to review. He helped us negotiate a lease (getting the rent reduced by $200/mo!), and was super accessible and able to help us with the issues that cropped up when we were securing our property. The craziest part is, he did so much for us and didn't charge us a dime! We will DEFINITELY be using his services when we are ready to buy a home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Beltsville, MD. My husband and I have worked with Lise Howe and her team multiple times. Lise was recommended to us by another agent as being an extremely knowledgeable and patient resource for first time home buyers like us!! We purchased our first home (as first time home buyers) with Lise's guidance. She was indeed patient and extremely knowledgable and spent a great deal of time meeting with us and speaking with us on the phone in order to make sure we got all of our questions answered. She really got to know us as a couple and what we wanted in order to show us houses that were contenders in our search. We found our perfect home and paid, what we believed, to be a very fair price. Since that first encounter, I have recommended her to a very close friend of mine who worked with Lise and had a very similar, positive experience in which they got a great house!! Fast forward 6 years. Our family has grown and our needs and needed location have changed a bit. Our first thought was to call Lise. We asked Lise about the process of selling a home. How could we best prepare? We weren't planning on selling our home right away but rather, wanted guidance on renovations we could make to get top dollar. Lise met with us in our home and made suggestions. She made recommendations on where to save money and where to spend in order to get the biggest return. She even made suggestions on paint colors in order to unify our home and make it feel bigger. Our house looked brand new when it was done and was staged for a fast sell. A professional photographer came to our home to photograph it and the listing looked GREAT! Lise and her team held multiple open houses and within 2 weeks our house was sold!! My husband and I are also currently working with Lise to purchase our new construction home. This was something that we debated (one new construction seller really discouraged use of agents...suspicious) but we thought, how hard could it really be to tell them what you want? We did some research online, we had a very honest discussion with Lise and we chose to use our beloved realtor to purchase our new home once more! We are SO glad we had Lise on our side! Just having someone representing YOU as the buyer during the process of new home construction is IMPERATIVE! Lise is a no nonsense presence in the room and takes her role as representation for her buyers VERY seriously. Lise was able to give us information that the selling agent couldn't, she was able to help us problem solve, help us negotiate, and was able to act as our representation in a sticky potential legal issue between the seller, another buyer, and OUR lot! We are extremely happy with our decision to work with Lise Howe in ALL aspects of our home selling/buying process. I recommend her to family AND friends and I would certainly recommend her to you. :)
Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Laurel, MD. She was amazing and in a short summary, she is a professional and she gets the job done, period. We plan to use her in the future and recommend to all our friends and families who are looking for or selling a property. She has become a friend as well as an agent, she usually joked about maintaining friendships with most of her clients for years, and we truly see why.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Bowie, MD. As an active duty military member, I have been required to PCS or relocate numerous times over the span of my 30 year career. Of the many agents that have represented us, Lise is by far the best we have ever worked with. Her integrity, subject matter expertise, intelligence, and responsive, accommodating nature made her the best possible real estate professional we could have hoped for. She has represented us in both the purchase and sale of a home, and her professionalism, knowledge, and abilities ensured that the transactions went smoothly and our interests were protected. I recommend her very highly to all military members and/or to anyone in need of the very best possible real estate agent representation anywhere.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Adams Morgan, Washington, DC. The fourth and by far the best realtor I've worked with in DC. Lise helped me price my condo appropriately for a quick sale. She had great ideas on how to stage the condo and market it effectively. And she's just genuinely good at what she does. She also represented the sellers in the house I purchased and kept the two transactions professional and separate. I'm very happy with the sale of my condo, which went under contract and closed in less than a month. And I'm very happy with the lovely home that she ultimately helped me get.
