Testimonials

I had previously worked with Theresa on the purchase of this house and was nothing short of impressed with her skill and knowledge of the area. During ownership and sale, her local knowledge and connections to talented home care businesses/contractors made the preparation and sale a breeze. She kept me up to date and has impeccable communication with me throughout the process. I would absolutely ask for her to be my realtor again if I come back in the area.

We had used Theresa when we bought the house back in 2020. We had no hesitation what so ever in using her again and usi ng another agent was never going to happen. Thanks to the skill of Theresa she made our sales experience much less stressful. She was open and honest with us and offered solutions for us to consider allowing us to make informed decisions. Theresa was with us every step of the way. I appreciate she is a busy person and has lots of clients but to us she gave the impression that she cared and her communication was excellent. Theresa has really excellent negotiating skills and she saved the day for us on our sale.

We interviewed several candidates and Theresa had the best plan. She always made us comfortable and we ended up getting more than we had expected. Theresa's marketing was wonderful. Our pictures were first rate and all materials were the finest we could hope for. I don't see how any realtor could have done any better than Theresa. She was always professional, super nice, and worked hard to get us the best price for our house. We couldn't be happier. Everything went smoothly. It was great, we are very happy.

Theresa was just amazing. Her knowledge on the area, the market, and homes is awesome. We were first time sellers and sh e helped us through every step of the process and made sure our questions were answered. She really was available 24/7 day or night and always responded to us as quick as possible. She even got us a little Maryland parting gift. The personal touches she adds to the buying/selling process are just perfect. We highly recommend her to all of our friends in the area and we would certainly use her again if we were staying in the area.

Theresa was great! She worked within my wife and I's schedule, and even handled my crazy kids well when we had to bring them along when we went to look at houses. She didn't push my wife and I to make decisions, and even provided her expertise when seeing some issues with some of the houses we looked at. I would definitely use her again when my wife and I decide to purchase.

Theresa Shoptaw came to our home to chat with my husband and I, as it related to the sale of our home at 11907 Homestead Pl. We had already decided to go with our prior agent (of 15 years) due to formalarity. Ms. Shoptow gave us great advice on fixing our home, to get the most for our home. At the end of our visit as she walked away, my husband and I said, we really like her a lot. She's very easy going and knowledge. When the prior agent couldn't sale our property after one month, we contacted Ms. Shoptaw. She stated she would help us and assured us she could land the plane (sale our home). Boy oh boy, did she come threw for us. Within 4 days we had a sale. She is some-kinda-wonderful!!! She manages on all levels, has total control of all things real property. She stated, she would be available for any/all questions. Let me tell you, not only was she available, she had the answers and never let us down. She explain the process in such a manner thats calming. She thinks everything threw strategically. She is the go to person for us and anyone (with ears) that we know. We think Theresa was a joy to work with as well as work for when task. That right she ensure you are on solid ground. So you may have to declutter. I current still tap into her knowledge. We really appreciate her so much. She make dreams come true! ✨️ Theresa Shoptaw is a true professional. Doing business with her was a winning for us. I tired to get her on the new sale deal. Our paths crossed and our home was sold promptly. The new buyer had some issues as it related to the Maryland Mortgage Program, Theresa advised me to hang in there, this was a solid deal. Thank heaven I believed in her. She was right on target, all the way around. Lets face it, she's awesome and very easy to work with.

I enjoyed working with Theresa! She was very informative, and patient, with me as I was unsure of the prospect of my ho me selling. Theresa was able to provide me with comparable homes and ensured me that she would price my home at a price that would be attractive to the buyers, but also comfortable for me. I could not have asked for a better experience. I would definitely recommend Theresa to all my family and friends, and I would not hesitate to work with her again. In one word... seamless!

Benita H, White Plains, MD
My wife and I have been living in Waldorf for about two years now and were renting an apartment at the time when we deci ded to look for a more permanent living arrangement. Back in May/June of 2022 we began looking at homes online, through the Zillow app, and various local Charles County realtor website listings. As a result we contacted a realtor whose name we saw repeatedly. To avoid making slanderous claims and defamatory remarks, this initial agent we contact shall remain nameless. This person we contacted was very fast paced, talked quickly, used terminology that she may have bene familiar with, but as first time home buyers we were not. Additionally any questions we had, no matter how complex or trivial they may have been, were met with a hasty and slightly rude tone. This person was a prominent realtor in the area, at least we assumed so based on the sheer number of listings and references to her and her official place of business. This left us with a rather unsettling feeling and as a result we totally abandoned the idea of looking for a home or townhome as we assumed any realtor would ultimately only be interested in hitting a quota and getting listings sold. By the time August rolled around we realized we needed to upgrade our living situation and based on our financial stance, the “market” and the fact that rent would be a major increase to move into an appropriately sized unit for our growing family, we decided to re-enter the housing search and decided to look for a single family detached home. This time we contacted our Credit Union and began the formal process of starting the home buying process. Through Navy Federal Credit Union we were introduced to Mrs. Theresa Shoptaw, and she became our sole realtor and person of contact with regards to the home buying situation. During the initial phase of our contact she clearly helped us identify what we wanted and the price range we were able to afford. She was very patient with us and helped to explain all the questions we had, which included a hefty amount of background knowledge, as neither my wife nor myself had any idea the home buying process was so long and arduous. She was instrumental in her ability to bring us up to speed on the terms and conditions associated with home buying, the intricacies of loans and mortgage payments, closing related expenses and processes and the many facets of home buying, to include actual physical touring of the homes. During this time, which ended up being a period of about 2 months, we felt as if we were her only clients. That is the intimate and personal level of attention and care we received from her during our home buying process. Of course I am sure she had other clients, however she was always available to meet us, phone calls and was fast and concise at responding to emails, questions and the exchange of electronically signed and verified documents. We weren’t exactly easy clients to have either. My wife and I had very specific characteristics and an even more specific area we wanted to live in. The neighborhood(s) we wanted were close to my work, church and the various stores we go to (groceries, clothes, things for our baby, etc.) so for her to be able to consistently stay right in the designated preferences we had was amazing. It was a stressful process in general, not because of her but because the market was tough, people were actively making offers on houses we wanted and it was competitive, not to mention interest rate hikes that also seemed to fuel the increased buying activity. Through all of this she remained calm and dedicated to helping us find exactly what we were looking for, with no compromises. Again, this was a stressful process, we had multiple offers not get selected, and some that were out right rejected. As you can imagine this added a great deal of stress to our life because the end date of our apartment lease contract was rapidly approaching. Once we finally had an offer in, and it was subsequently accepted, she was a major driving factor in our negotiations with the seller and selling agent in securing a legitimate contract that did not put us at a disadvantage. It really felt like she was sticking up for us, for lack of a better term. There were a number of items that had to be addressed, based on the lender required repairs, upgrades/repairs made by the seller and other concessions, that she was able to secure for us and more importantly to educate us as to ‘why’ she was doing things the way she was doing them and ‘how’ they would benefit us. I recommend her to anyone looking at buying a home, or even anyone selling a home, although that was not the service for which we approached her for. She is a very knowledgeable and confident realtor who will take time to explain each step of the process in a manner that matches your level of understanding of the home buying process, which, again, for my wife and I, our level of knowledge was zero in the beginning. After our contract was signed she was even able to help us expedite the closing time period and facilitated a great deal of communication between us and the loan officer with our credit union which greatly reduced the stress and helped us with our very tight time constraints. We have now been moved into our new home for going on a month now and I can comfortably say that it is because we had the confidence, as first time home buyers, that we are comfortably and finally settled. For her faithful dedication, patience, subject matter prowess and ability to explain and educate us on the topics of home buying, mortgages, loans and that like, she is by far the most qualified choice for a realtor in my opinion. It was a level of focus to our needs and specific requests and preferences that helped us in deciding on the house that we now call home.

Theresa went above and beyond for us. She answered all our questions and responded to every text or email no matter what the time was. She listened to us and that meant a lot. She calmed us down when we had a small issue on the inspection and reassured us. I highly recommend Theresa. She made us feel like we were special although she must have had other clients too.

Theresa was great in guiding us through the sale of our home! We decided to sell our home during a slower time of year, yet she was able to obtain an offer within a week of having our home on the market. She was fantastic every part of the way and was always keeping us in the loop of the progress of the transaction - even when she was out of state, she would check in with a quick text or call. Overall, Theresa brings valuable knowledge and experience, and even greater customer service!

We can only say good things about Theresa, all went according to plan until closing time and the other party started hav ing a multitude of issues. Theresa hung in there with us through thick and thin until the sale was completed. Since that time we have required some documentation I could not find and again, Theresa has come to our aid in helping us get from here to there. During all of our stressful dealings we felt we were dealing with family instead of a real estate agent, it is a good feeling!
