My wife and I are extremely glad that we chose Will Stein as our realtor when we sold our house in Bowie, MD. Will looked over the house and clearly identified its strong and weak points as viewed by potential buyers. That was very useful because our tastes aren't necessarily those of the average buyer. Will suggested several improvements and we made most of them. He recommended shades and types of paint and carpet and worked with us where we had slightly different preferences. He helped us tremendously before we even signed an agreement with him. Because of circumstances beyond our control, it took us much longer to prepare the house for the market than we had planned on. Will stayed with us the whole way. He responded quickly to the many questions that we, as first time sellers, had. He even responded at night and during weekends. We particularly appreciate Will's suggestion that we change an office/storage room into a fourth bedroom. That greatly enhanced the value of the house and improved its salability. Before we put the house on the market, Will took us on a tour of comparables and discussed their strengths and weaknesses so we could decide on a price that maximized its value while remaining competitive. We got our first offer a few hours after the house went on the market and it was above our asking price. Will discussed the offer with us and advised us to see what other offers came. Within a couple of days we received a higher offer. Will helped us through the closing and beyond, dealing with issues such as transferring responsibility for the utility bills. Despite the fact that this was our first time selling a house, we felt that we understood the issues and the process, all thanks to Will. We have already recommended him to others.
