Testimonial from a recent transaction

February 2013
Adam Bashein worked tirelessly from the end of May 2012 to sell and ultimately rent our home at 1218 North Belgrade.  He is a real estate agent of strong integrity who brings a lot of energy, effort and likeability to the table.  We spent a lot of time with Adam before the home was on the market, working on pictures, captions for the pictures and verbiage in the listing to make the home appealing to a wide audience.   During the listing we regularly talked about the traffic on our home and the real estate market.
One of Adam’s great ideas was creating tent cards which we put out in different areas of out home, pointing out unique features to buyers.  Another wonderful idea Adam had was us writing a letter to the buyers explaining why we decided to buy the home, what we saw/see in it and that we hope they will create the same memories.  Adam created a brochure with our letter.
He held many open houses for us and had a broker open so agents would be aware of inventory and be able to talk about the home on a most informed level…beyond the listing remarks.  Even as it became more likely that the home would rent rather then sell, he did open houses and gave us the same full service.  The word was out about our house on the internet, on the signs throughout the neighborhood, the two for sale signs in our yard and brochures that a few stores and institutions allowed him to put up.
Adam incorporated an out of the box idea of having a weeknight open house, to hopefully bring in people who couldn’t see the home during weekends.  While we didn’t see direct results from that, we saw that Adam would do whatever it takes to give the home more exposure.
There was a small crossroads in the beginning of January 2013.  We decided to follow Adam to his new brokerage.  It took some extra time to do this but we were very happy with Adam’s efforts and it was a no brainer to do the new paperwork.
We are excited about the people who are renting our home  and give Adam Bashein our highest endorsement as a realtor.

Adam Bashein's Real Estate Move: Page 1 of the February 17, 2013 Real Estate Guide in the Washington Post

Changing companies is a big deal.  It is about a company and manager who shares a vision with you and has the tools to best help you achieve your professional goals.  In addition, and mostly, to me, it is about who wants you and who do you connect with.  Do you connect with them and do you like each other.  My family had a business for nearly 15 years and one of the questions asked about a potential new employee was if we would invite him or her over to our home for a meal?  I was with my previous brokerage for nearly 5 years and I didn't make a move just for the sake of saying it is time to move on. 

Not every real estate agent is the same and not every real estate brokerage is the same.

It is going to be a fantastic 2013 and I thank Long & Foster's Potomac/Cabin John Office for the warm welcome.

If you or yours is thinking of making a move, contact me today for a free, confidential no hassle consultation.  My cell phone and email remain the same.  The office line is set up to forward all calls to my cell phone.  It would be an honor to work for you.

Think of me for sales and rentals

I just secured a 1 year lease for this 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath colonial listing in Kemp Mill Estates, a subdivision in Silver Spring, MD.   This home sits on a large elevated lot and has been very well kept by the owners.  The home is near shopping, public transportation, metro, the beltway and more. 

If you are thinking of making a move, whether it is to buy, rent or sell a home, give me a call. 

Appointments are confidential and free, with no obligations.  It would be an honor to be your realtor.

Thank you.
