The Other Listing Agent Told Me That They Could List My House For Less

Author: Fernando Herboso / Category: German Town Maryland Homes, Germantown Maryland Homes, Milestone

The other listing agent told me that they could list my house for less…why should I pay you more?


The question got me thinking…that was a fair question I received from a consumer facing many choices out there..why should they hire me to list their home at my price when there are hundreds at a lower price?

So I prepared this for her…

Dear Home Seller:

There is a difference when someone who wants to “LIST” a property or someone who wants to ‘SELL” a property.

There is a difference between being a “customer” or being a “client”

There is a difference between being paid up front for your needs and not caring if you were successful or not..

or someone that will invest money, time, leadership and sacrifice to accomplish your goals and only then…..expect to be paid.

I don’t list properties..

I sell them. .

I will protect my client’s price

I will market their home

I will negotiate the best price for them

I will negotiate the best terms for them

My services are not on a vending machine…

My services are sold only after  I perform, surpass and achieve my client’s goals to the best of their expectations.


“My fees are not an expense…they are an investment for you”


I know agents that can put your home on the MLS for only $95

They are the ones that got their license and soon discovered that. . 

they can’t sell a property on talent..

So they did the best next thing..

They reduced their charges on proportion to the value they bring to you...


My advice is..

If you want to “LIST” it..go for the ninety five dollar one….

but, If you want to “SELL” it….my number is 301-246-0001

How To Hire The Top Real Estate Agent in Maryland

Author: Fernando Herboso / Category: Germantown Maryland Homes, Milestone

How To Hire The Top Real Estate Agent in Germantown Maryland

Deciding to sell your Germantown Maryland home?
A big decision now is to determine how to pick right agent to represent you
Hiring a RealtorĀ® should not be that complicated if you follow certain points

A top real estate agent with the most sales in the area may not be the right person for you.

There were a lot of foreclosures and short sales in the last few years and some agents exclusively represented REO lenders. A complete different way to sell homes than current traditional listing services.

In some cases, you may find what you perceive to be a top agent in Maryland …would not have the time to speak to you personally and accommodate your needs because he is not available any any time,

I see others making the mistake in hiring an agent just because they belong to a national famous brand.
Just be aware…you are hiring one agent ..not a WHOLE COMPANY!
Don’t fall into the virtues of “well known” companies with smoke and mirrors from a brand perspective
Each agent works independently from each other  ..and there are thousands of EXPIRED LISTINGS with FRUSTRATED SELLERS in the MLS from the same companies…thousands!

Just know this…Is not the company that sells houses …is the agent! 

What about family members or your co-worker that is also a part time agent?

When you are considering about placing a huge investment into the hands of someone to represent you. Your real estate agent better know what he/she is doing, in order to provide you the best service possible to get you top dollar for your home

Your equity is your money 
a lot of money that you deserve to get when you sell your house.
Don’t place all that money into the hands of an inexperience “friend” agent just because you feel obligated and pressures to hire them.

Another huge mistake some seller make is to have a criteria of selecting the agent who will tell them what they want to hear…as far as pricing is concerned. Hiring a listing agent just because they say they can sell your home for an unrealistic price could be a disaster for your home.
Your home will become stale and you will never get TOP DOLLAR when you have a history of being on the market for over 100+ days..

Buyers are educated these days, and so are their agents. You will not fool anyone with an overpriced home.

Clarksburg MD Builder Accused of “Shoddy Workmanship”

New Townhouse Owners in Clarksburg Maryland Complain to County Consumer Protection About ‘Shoddy Construction Practices” 

Buyer Beware:

If you’re serious about buying a new home, then you’ll need true real estate professionals to help you find the perfect home on the market for the best price ….from a builder that has good reputation. 
A builder will not share these news with you
A builder representative has only one job to do…to sell you a home form their builder.

They are not going to volunteer to  tell you about their consumer complains…

If you don’t have representation when buying a new home in Clarksburg, you are on your own..
just like the homeowners that were forced into contacting the Consumer Protection Agency for the County.

..our neighbors are constantly knocking on our door”

The homeowner complained after buying a new home from this builder in Clarksburg Maryland

 They can hear us walking and watching TV!”

continue the frustrate homeowner after moving to his brand new unit from Gaithersburg…

 This has made our purchase a living nightmare” 

The complain was made directly to the director of Montgomery County Consumer Protection Agency.
His name: Eric Friedman – If you have a similar complain, I suggest you contact him as well.

This should not happen if you are represented by a neutral party that has ONLY your best interests at heart

If you’re serious about buying a new home, then you’ll need true real estate professionals to help you find the perfect home …to PROTECT YOU from many instances that  could make your purchase a living nightmare for you as well
Our company MAXUS REALTY GROUP is uniquely positioned to give you a neutral opinion and do a comparison report  just for you …
based on facts and not promises from the builders themselves.

Nature has been preserved as Cabin Branch was born as the newest community of new homes in Boyds/Clarksburg Maryland

In addition, a new outlet center shopping area was offered to the city planners for their consideration.

Surrounded by natural wooded rolling hills and a short walk away from Black Hill and Little Seneca Regional Park, this area indeed. .it was the best possible location for this huge undertaking.

The Clarksburg community has voiced the need for more shopping and dining options for many years. . 

Clarksburg Premium Outlets at Cabin Branch was a proposal that offered to build an inviting, attractive and pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining destination that will be a true, long-term asset to the community.

Among other benefits that was offered. .an  exciting new outdoor green amphitheater and beautifully landscaped promenades.

Finally, the permit was granted with some litmitations for the builders and the outlet center will be starting construction in the Spring of 2015 . Construction will take approximatley a year and it will include many fine  designer clothes brand stores, restaurants and many “green” areas  for family and friends to gather and delight in local outdoor concerts and performances.

Imagine  the experience of  living a short walk away from an Outlet Center.…here come Cabin Branch homes located right next to teh Outlet  Center

Imagine living in a family oriented community, next to a park, restaurants, shopping….

I would say that’s the description of a livable community with a high walkability score

This is what is what describes Cabin Branch in Boyds.
