Lise Found Our New Home Before It Came on the Market!

Simply the best! We would not have found and secured a home in this crazy market if it were not for Lise. Her patience with us was endless, her humor greatly appreciated, and her experience is unparalleled. She went so far above and beyond – literally knocking on someone’s door whose house wasn’t even on the market to secure a deal – which we did! She has a great support team/references as well that helped us through the process at every step. Thank you Lise Howe Group!!

Kenwood Forest Sale and a N Bethesda New Home!

Lise and her team are absolutely wonderful! We worked with Lise to sell our house and to buy our new home. Though we didn’t anticipate this, the market changed drastically during our process, and Lise was a true professional in navigating these changing dynamics. Lise helped us secure an excellent buyer on our original house, and she was very effective in making sure we were able to move into a new home that we loved. Lise and her team were incredibly responsive and full of valuable knowledge that made our buying and selling process easier. Highly recommend!

My homebuying experience with the Lise Howe group was a breeze. As a first-time homebuyer, I was looking for an agent that was looking out for me. Lise Howe was that agent. Condo hunting, offer advice, contract negotiation, inspection and contractor contacts, and efficient communication with sellers, loan officers, and title company – Lise brings experience to the table and fights for her client. I look forward to working with Lise in the future!

Lise Howe recently handled the sale of my townhouse in Germantown, MD. I had known Lise for years as she has been a highly-regarded realtor and she is very friendly and engaging. But I hadn’t needed a realtor until it was time to sell the townhouse. Boy am I glad that I reached out to Lise to manage this sale! Lise was so professional, so knowledgeable, and totally committed– even though the townhouse was on the lower end of the cost range for this region and also was going to be sold “as is” without the types of upgrades some might do to make a property more marketable.

Lise quickly and accurately assessed what would be needed to sell the property, put together accurate and effective marketing materials, set up and held open houses, and promoted the property. Lise knows real estate. She knows real estate finance. She is respectful of other realtors and potential buyers. She is patient, smart, and gracious with her time, her deep knowledge and her ideas. She also has a terrific support team in the Lise Howe Group. All these skills and attributes came into play in her successful engagement to sell the townhouse to the right buyer.

Lise’s expertise shines through. But what impressed me most is that she respected the property and my wish to proceed with an “as is” sale. She listened to me. She answered my questions. She cared. Lise is an excellent realtor, an excellent person. I highly recommend her, whether you are selling or buying a house – Lise is truly the best.

Lise Howe is an outstanding real estate agent. I worked with her both to rent a place and then to buy a home. She has deep knowledge of the market, of legal issues (she is an attorney), and is responsive and proactive. She is a pleasure to work with. I’m very grateful that she helped me find a home suited to my needs and interests!

My wife and I are first-time homebuyers who just closed on our new home a few days ago and we are so grateful to Lise for all of her kindness, patience, and hard work to help us find the home of our dreams.  Lise is incredibly knowledgeable and her warmth and professionalism shows in everything that she does, as she has been in the real estate business for over 30 years and is also a licensed attorney.  From the very beginning, she took the time to educate us on the home-buying process before we even signed up as her clients and held our hands every step of the way.  Lise was even willing to help us tour homes safely at the height of the pandemic, at times even attending tours in our stead and showing us the home via video chat at our request.  Although it took us a long time to find the right home, she never pressured us to rush into any decision and was always supportive and responsive throughout our search.  When the time came to make an offer on our dream home, she was thorough in her research and her advice was what ultimately allowed us to win the bid in one of the most competitive housing markets in recent history.  We are incredibly happy with our decision to work with Lise and would recommend her and her team to everyone!

I enthusiastically recommend Lise Howe as a real estate agent.  I am a military retiree who purchased 15 properties during my career and 6 more in retirement.  We just sold our 14th – we’ve been on one side of the table or the other 35 times and have worked with many different agents.  Without qualification I can assure you Lise Howe is the best we’ve ever worked with.   She is incredibly knowledgeable, proactive, and worked tirelessly to get us the best outcome with a challenging buyer.  As could be expected, last minute issues arose, even at the closing itself.  Lise quickly identified solutions and facilitated them so the sale went through as scheduled.  She has a great support team with The Lise Howe Group which kept us on top of every item that popped up.  We went from initial offer to closed sale in a matter of weeks.  We have sold properties “by owner” in the past.  Now, having worked with Lise, I would definitely call her if we were to sell another house in MD and absolutely ask her to represent us in the purchase of one.  My wife and I agree she’s positively the best real estate agent we’ve worked with.

We have known Lise for several years and value her professional expertise, honesty, and patience. We have worked with her to purchase our first property and then again when selling and looking for a new property to purchase. She is extremely knowledgeable on the market, very personable, and works to understand her clients’ complex needs. Additionally, as a family of color, we felt heard, understood, and supported when we expressed a desire to find a safe, inclusive, family-oriented community with good schools. She was sensitive to the cultural considerations that went into our decision-making. We would highly recommend Lise and plan to work with her in the future and refer our friends to her as well.

–Ryann, sold her home in November 2020

Lise has been my agent through 3 real estate transactions spanning the past 10 years. We closed a foreclosure during the Great Recession, bought my first SFH, and recently helped me navigate the purchase of another MoCo SFH during this COVID-crazy seller’s market. Lise has always been willing to take me out hunting; in the past 2 purchases we saw over 60 houses each time before landing on the right buy. She is a great negotiator and clearly the industry professional that you want on your side. Thank you Lise!

–Oliver, home buyer, closed October 2020

I give Lise 5 stars for everything.

Lise Howe recently helped us with the sale of our house. It was a difficult sale for us and she was there every inch of the way. She gave good advice and suggestions which proved correct for the prompt sale of our house. She has a large portfolio of trusted contractors to call on which is extremely helpful. She went the extra mile to see the house was ready while we were out of town. I highly recommend Lise without reservation.
