Thank you for your help getting us through two negotiations that resulted in all parties being happy with the results. You were really creative in writing our offer for our new home and very thoughtful in the way you negotiated on our behalf during the sale of our old home.
This was a stressful experience that was made much less stressful due to your experience and advice and your proactive communication. In comparison with our previous real estate transactions, it was a piece of cake!
Jaci was also great to work with and was hugely helpful during the close of our purchase when we were dealing with a walk-through situation. She was very professional and made a potentially awkward situation into a non-event.
In short: You guys were awesome. Thank you!
Liz is simply among the best agents in the Washington area. Her expertise in all aspects of the Washington real estate market is unparalleled. My husband and I have hired Liz to represent us in over 15 transactions in the last 20-plus years. She has bought and sold properties for us from Spring Valley to Chevy Chase, Bethesda and Potomac. Multiple properties we have hired Liz to list have sold in a matter of days due to her instincts, her vast network, and her expertise about pricing in the marketplace. Liz’s marketing materials and WFP’s online presence are top-notch, and her sharp negotiating skills and keen instincts will always get the best price for you, whether she is representing you as a buyer or a seller. We would never look to anyone else to represent us in the real estate marketplace.
Liz Shorb is the consummate professional. We are thrilled with her representation of us in the recent sale of our home in Chevy Chase. She knows the market exceedingly well, she knows exactly what it takes to negotiate a great deal, and she has total recall on all the myriad details necessary to get a home sold. Significantly, she is also exceedingly thorough with every aspect of the detailed paperwork required for a strong deal and a great closing. We could not have asked for a more efficient, thoughtful, kind, and effective real estate agent or for a nicer person. She is in fact deceptively nice because she knows how to drive a hard bargain while smiling and never stepping on toes. What a package she is! She is the real deal!!!
We couldn’t have been happier with Liz and the support we received from her team at WFP. After working with another broker/agent for months and a completely frustrating experience, we turned to Liz for help! Within days she helped us sort our priorities, focus our search and find us our home in Bethesda. Her experience and expertise surpassed our expectations as she helped us negotiate the purchase, execute all of the inspections and close in record time. The transaction support was as superb as the home search, and I will recommend Liz to all of my friends and colleagues looking for a home in the Chevy Chase/Bethesda area.
Liz Lavette Shorb has represented us in no less than four real estate transactions in the Chevy Chase area over the past decade. She has a sharp grasp of the local market and is highly sophisticated and creative. She possesses frankly unmatched negotiating skills, has a firm business acumen, and above all is utterly unfazable in the face of any problem. We cannot recommend her more strongly and will never execute a real estate transaction in the Metropolitan area without her by our side.
We can’t thank you enough for totally kicking a** for us on both sides of the river. You far exceeded expectations, and we could not be a smidge happier with how well you managed a nerve-wracking, high- risk, simultaneous sale/buy process. We’ll continue raving about you and recommending you to everyone we know who is considering buying/selling anywhere because they all deserve your expertise, guidance and results.
