Client Testimonials for Fleisher Arrowood of COMPASS
Working with Lee and her team of professionals was a joy. The initial consult, marketing, photography, house showings, offer negotiations, sale issues and final closing were handled flawlessly and with a steady hand. Lee’s expertise, dedication and responsiveness took us from our listing to a signed contract in two and a half days. Thank you, Lee and team
Lee and Katherine were a phenomenal team helping my wife and I find our long term home here in Maryland. After having our first child in January 2022, we decided it was time to move out of the city. They took a stressful situation of selling our home and finding a new one as easy as possible. Lee had a great team who helped us prep our sale quickly, made fantastic recommendations on what to update to help get top dollar, and navigated the offer process between two potential buyers masterfully. On the buy side, Lee and Katherine worked to help us get to know our target markets, and found us potential homes before they hit the market. Our ultimate buy was one where due to their work, we were able to see and put in an offer, securing the home before the open house. In the highly competitive market of the DMV, I would highly recommend Lee and Katherine to help anyone get their dream home.
Lee was a pleasure to deal with from the moment we met her until follow up beyond the closing. She listened to and understood exactly the type of home we were looking for. With her knowledge of DC's competitive marketplace, she tactfully and expertly guided us to make an accurately competitive offer to beat out other offers. While our buying situation was quite typical, there were minor bumps here and there along the way, but Lee seamlessly involved the proper professionals and the seller’s agent… We highly recommend Lee to anyone looking for a new home in the DC area.
I cannot imagine anyone else helping us through the process of finding and buying our home. Every step of the way Lee went out of her way to be thoughtful, conscientious and warm. She has incredible knowledge of the market and homes, which made her input as we weighed options invaluable.
Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
We didn’t want to miss the opportunity to send you this note of appreciation for every aspect of the sale of our recent home. Beginning with your extremely impressive initial meeting with my husband and culminating with the last minute air conditioning problem which your office resolved prior to the closing, we could not have been more impressed with you and your entire staff. As I’m sure that you are well aware, both Dianne and Sintia are extremely meticulous, dependable and wonderful to work with. We appreciated your candor, efficiency and accuracy in predicting the value of our house. Once the house was sold, we could not have been more satisfied with the way you were able to resolve any and all problems leading up to the closing. So thank you very much for enabling us to complete a rather emotional transaction with probably the most professional realtor that we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Please do not hesitate to use us as references.
During a time of great stress, Marc was there for us every step of the way. He worked tirelessly at negotiating the sale of our house and really “went to bat” for us on a number of issues. Marc was always available when we needed him and his professionalism stood in stark contrast to the pressure and obvious self-interest we’ve experienced in the past from other agents. As long as Marc is doing business, we will be one of his many devoted clients.
Your willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ to get this deal closed made all the difference. Thanks again for your professionalism and your attention through the whole process. We’ll recommend you whenever we have the chance.
We are absolutely delighted with the final results with the sale of our home by Marc Fleisher. Marc is very reliable, capable, honest, and a consummate professional. He sold our home thousands of dollars over the asking price within 24 hours. He also took all the worry out of the closing process. We would not hesitate to recommend Marc to anyone whose need is for a realtor with such fine qualities. He is not only top notch realtor but has become our friend as well.
Lee Arrowood is a marvel. She is an essential part of The Fleisher Group, which is internationally renowned, thanks to Marc’s decades of brilliant and honorable dealings in a profession that often doesn’t measure up to the highest standards. Lee, who I would describe as a protégé of Marc’s, is brilliant in her own right. She is razor sharp in her dealings, knows all the nooks and crannies of the industry and adamantly stays away from the dark ones. Her poise masks an intensity that is itself remarkable.
I’m normally skeptical in my business dealings but I have a unique absolute trust in Lee. It’s a high expectation but she has always exceeded it.
I had the pleasure of finding and purchasing my Bethesda Row condo with Donna in late 2016. As a first time homebuyer, I was not sure what to expect during the home buying process. I was worried that my inexperience would lead me to spend much more money than the property was worth. It was important for me to find a real estate agent who put me at ease and answered all of my questions. Donna did just that.
What I value most about Donna are her patience and enthusiasm. I remember getting cold feet while going after one newly built condo. After making a preliminary offer, I told her that I was not going to pursue that home and wanted to explore other options. I expected her to be very upset. Surprisingly, she remained upbeat and positive. She supported my decision and tried to find me other places that did not have the same concerns. It was only a short time later that we ended up finding the condo I am in now.
Looking back, I feel so lucky that I had Donna to guide me through the purchase of my first home. I am just as happy with my condo today as I was on the day I moved in. I paid a fair price to get a great home for my needs. The fact I am so happy shows how good Donna knows her clients. Just as important to me, though, is how she took the fear and anxiety out of the whole process. Now I know home buying is no big deal and can actually be fun!
While Marc’s professionalism is legendary, to experience him and his time in action (particularly with my family’s interest and a dream house on the line) was nothing less than extraordinary. “Unparalleled-market-savvy, negotiating-artfulness, Laser-precision to detail, Swiss-execution” are among the superlatives that come to mind. If there is a Realtor Hall of Fame, let him in now.
Lee Arrowood is the ideal broker whether you are buying or selling a home. She is smart, experienced, well-connected, polished and is a shrewd yet fair negotiator who has just the right touch to get top results. Lee makes herself accessible during all critical phases of the sales process and guides you through the decision-making process without pressure or compromise. She has keen listening skills when dealing with both buyers and sellers which allows her to curate uniquely suited homes for the buyer and particular clients for the seller. Lee has both sold my house and found me my next home, and I wouldn’t hesitate to engage her again if she hadn’t found the perfect home for me the first time! I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone buying or selling in the greater Washington area.”
I am writing to let you know how pleased I was with the services provided by Marc and the rest of The Fleisher Group. I could not have selected more capable real estate professionals to sell my home.
I lived in my home for almost 30 years. Consequently, selling was a new experience for me. I really didn’t know where to start. I was overwhelmed. My first choice- the selection of my sales broker- turned out to be the most important one. I interviewed several agents and received a wide range of opinions concerning valuation and pricing. A high price to tempt me to list. A low price for ease of sale. I didn’t know what to believe or whom to trust. Then I met with Marc and the choice was easy!
Marc was clear and candid when discussing valuation. He provided a concise rationale for your opinions, and backed them with market comps and current data. His professionalism and experience blew away the competition.
As soon as I listed, I was able to relax. Marc recommended a mover that did a great job. From your many years as a general contractor, Marc earned a critical eye and discerning taste. Marc had the experience and expertise to recommend and implement minor enhancements to improve the curb appeal of my home.
After creating a detailed marketing plan, we hit the market with great fanfare. The professional photographs created im¬mediate attention. The combination of preparation and detail resulted in my getting a full price offer just one day after offering the property for sale. About as good as it gets.
I couldn’t have been more pleased with my overall experience. I look forward to having opportunities to recommend you and The Fleisher Group. Your reputation for excellence is well deserved.
No question that selling your home can be so stressful and debilitating to yourself and your family. After almost three years and at least 80 interested purchasers, no contract or offer. Everyone said the house was in a PRIME neighbor¬hood and was indeed beautiful, but either to large, not a big enough yard (by the way parking for 6 cars), and of course the price was too high. Enter Michael Kay and in 45 days the house was sold. Why, he just didn’t SHOW the house in a walk thru to the would be purchasers he SOLD the house. The purchasers also said to big, and expensive, but Mi¬chael overcame their issues by extolling the virtues and how the positive attributes outweighed the issues they might have had. Not only was the purchase price within a few per cent of the asking price, he also sold all of the furniture in the house to the purchaser. The contract did have a 30-day settlement period and within 48 hours after the purchase contract was executed he showed my wife and I at least ten properties and we purchased one of them within a week and settled within the given time frame, coincidently from the listing realtor who had the original listing on the house we sold for the entire period it was on the market. A win-win for all and for this experience we are now stress free and we salute Michael and The Fleisher Group.
Marc is the consummate professional realtor. He provided a unique video of our home and continued with mass marketing strategies. We sold our home within a short amount of time, and his honest and kind demeanor, made the process easier. Marc will become more than your realtor; he will become your friend and advocate who has your best interests at heart.
Lee is extremely professional and patient – a hard combination to find I think. We enjoyed our sale and our purchase, both were stress free and actually fun thanks to Lee. Her attention to detail on our behalf was helpful and kept all transactions running smoothly. Lee is pleasant to be with and available 24 hours a day…although we never tried at 3 am! We wouldn’t use any other agent than Lee ever! There is no one else we can recommend more.
