Great working with Dj Brady! He was always there for all of my many questions and very understanding and knowledgable. He is very friendly and makes you feel at ease though the stressful time of buying your perfect home. I would highly recommend Dj to all of my family/friends looking to sell or buy a home.

Tammy Faunce, Mechanicsville
DJ Brady was great at helping us look for homes in the areas we were interested in. He responded to every call and mess age very quickly. He was professional, knowledgeable and personable on every encounter (and there were a lot over the time we worked with him). He was always able to offer little tidbits from his vast experience when we weren't sure about a house. I would recommend DJ Brady to anyone I know looking to buy a house. His local knowledge of areas and home constructions are unmatched. I can't thank him enough for everything.

Charlotte was fantastic! We had a solid offer in less than a week and got more for our home than other units in our buil ding had in the last year or so. Charlotte met our every need and was very supportive. She is very highly recommended

Kirsten Smith, Lexington Park
The way Chris showed me a bunch of comps in the area and one by one we dissected what they had I didn’t have and vice versa to come up with a price for our house was very detailed. Chris was always available and never seem to be annoyed by it . Yes I will highly recommend Christopher Clemons to friends and family.

James checked in weekly, even when there was no progress made that week. We had a fairly long time between offer and cl osing for reasons specific to the seller. James was great at keeping in touch and managing our expectations concerning the timeline. James provided amazing customer service. He will be who we use if we purchase another property.

Amanda Taylor, Solomons
DJ was very helpful in getting the house ready for sale. He told me what I needed to do and make sure that the natural light was shining in. He also got back to you in a timely manner when questions would come up. He gave excellent advice from the start of the sale of the home until the end.

DJ Brady was by far the most professional realtor I've ever had the pleasure of talking to. He's honest and to the point and listens to your want and needs. DJ was a blessing while going through our process of finding our forever home. I'd recommend him to anyone that is looking for a home without thinking twice about it.

Charlotte was very responsive whether it was during the day or at night. And she went the extra mile to dig and get addi tional info about a property we liked.
Review by
Ann, Mechanicsvill
We absolutely loved working with DJ, we had been on the hunt for a relator to help us sell our first home. We had little luck finding anyone willing to sit down and listen/help us prep to put our home on the market. Then we found DJ, he was hands on and there with us along the entire path to selling. We had several meetings with DJ at our home to discuss what we needed to do to prep for the market. He was always honest with us and that is something that both my husband and I appreciated the most! Once on the market he was always a call away with any questions, and he was quick to give us feedback on all our showings. When we finally got THE offer DJ was there right along with us to get everything done accurately and with speed. The entire process from start to finish was easier than we anticipated and a lot of that is because of DJ.

Charlotte Long was an excellent realtor to work with and really helped make the home buying process run smoothly. She wa s very responsive to our inquiries and quick to adjust her schedule to meet our needs, even with short-notice. We worked with her to secure a rental property, and continued working with her to buy a home the following year. Charlotte is very knowledgeable of the area, and did a great job explaining the answers to all the questions we had throughout the entire process. She is cheerful and caring, and really tries to find what is best for you by listening to your needs, wants, and concerns. We strongly recommend Charlotte Long and would gladly choose her again in the future!

Chris' sales pitch was phenomenal. He came fully prepared with statistics, photos, comps, and an aggressive plan to sell our home using all of the latest technology. He was confident and realistic. Chris walked us through every step and always made himself available for any questions we had along the way.
Review by
Tracy, Mechanicsville MD
We walked through countless houses it seemed, but always got an honest opinion from Dj. He always let us look no matter his opinion and eventually guided us into what we feel is the perfect home. From start to finish he knew what were looking for and no matter what time or day of the week, he was working for us. During our search we had the chance to work with 3 of the current platinum group members and they all provided and profession experience.

We had the absolute best experience with DJ Brady! He was punctual, professional, courteous and an all around genuinely great person. We were new to the whole real estate process and DJ made sure we were comfortable every step of the way. All of our questions were answered promptly and accurately. DJ was very honest and open about everything and no stone was left unturned. We would highly recommend him as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy, sell or both. Phenomenal work!!

Charlotte Long worked very hard at selling our house and helping us to find a new home that fit our needs as a family. S he was always available by phone or email, and you could really tell that she cared about our needs through the entire selling and buying process. I cannot say enough about how happy we were that Charlotte was our agent!
Review by
Tim Tucker Mechanicsville
DJ made the process of selling my home easy and stress free. During our initial meeting, he had an impressive and infor mative presentation on his marketing plan and market analysis. He did a great job of explaining everything from market comparisons to contracts in language I could understand. He was very accessible and easy to talk to whenever I had a question or needed advice. And most importantly, DJ was very skilled in negotiating and dealing with other agents. I would recommend DJ Brady to anyone who wants to sell their house quickly and for the best price!

DJ did an awesome job through our entire home buying process. I would definitely recommend DJ when it comes time to buyi ng or selling a home. He is top notch
Review by
Brian Page, Crofton Md
Dj worked around my busy schedule and would text me updates knowing I couldn't get away from work. He was very personabl e and had a great sense of humor, you wouldn't think that's important when buying a home, but for me it was. He didn't feel like a stranger to me and didn't try to push me into anything I wasn't ready for. Thank you DJ for being our first time home buyer realtor.

Matt, Maryland
Had a clear understanding of our needs and worked closely with us to fulfill our goal of selling our home within our ti me frame of us moving out. This was our second agent that we used to sell this home as we were unhappy with our first. DJ by far exceeded our expectations. Compared to other agents we have used in the past he is a hard charging honest agent.

I will never deal with any other realtor besides DJ. I will also not recommend any other realtor except for DJ.

Jimmy Leonardtown
Charlotte Long was a pleasure to work with. She broke the home buying process down into manageable parts so that my husb and and I didn't feel overwhelmed as first time homebuyers. She was very patient with us as we asked a slew of questions and visited many homes over the course of a few months. I would highly recommend Charlotte to friends/family searching for or selling a home in the St. Mary's County area.

Charlotte brought an excellent property to my attention. She pointed out features of the home that I would not have noti ced myself, and brought the property history to my attention. She made an offer on my behalf and represented me during the counter offer process that kept my interests first. She quickly brought about the closing. She has followed up with me to ensure that I am enjoying the purchase of my home. Thanks for the Pie for Thanksgiving!

DJ Brady had a vast knowledge of the area. He was also very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. I appreciated h im being available to me 24/7/365. I personally will never deal with another realtor, and will recommend him to anyone needing a realtor. My sale could not have went any better. DJ is the best realtor I have ever met. DJ is truly an amazing individual.

James Clem Leonardtown
DJ Brady is the Realtor to call. He was very professional, patient, knowledgeable and responsive. He is definitely a t the top of the list for honest, helpful and knowledgeable agents; a true pleasure to work with! It was nice to work with someone who cares more about the client than the commission. He strives to meet your needs and provides a stress free process. I would definitely call on Mr. Brady again and refer him to all my friends and family. Best experience ever!
Review by
R Dean Hollywood, Md
DJ is awesome. He is confident in what he does, as he should be. After 5 months and a bad experience with another agent , DJ sold our home in 2 days. He gave us feedback on his suggestions to improve the sale of our home, it helped! He met with us face to face to go over all paperwork rather than through email, it made the experience more personable.
Review by
Kyle & Tracy, Hollywood
The selection of my broker was important. Many brokers are not oriented to the understanding of needs, but rather the c ommission and the quickness of “can a sale,” be made. My reference assured me that this was not the case with DJ Brady. He was correct There were several miscommunications with the Lender and one that was critical for the closing of the house. Not being from the are aand not knowing what or how to handle the situation would have cost us the ability to close. DJ Brady gave us clear instructions and also spoke with the owners that our appointment for closing, due to this miscommunication, made us extremely late. We were able to do the transaction in a smooth and cohesive manner. There were many needs and considerations that needed to be addressed. Not from the area and MLS pictures, not always representing what a home truly has became an issue. What one sees as the perfect home, oft times may not be. Making sure that the criteria of needs, the condition of the home, proximity to stores, medical and so on also is part of navigating the MLS system from a different state. His knowledge of many of the homes saved us an immense amount of travel, time, and unnecessary financial issues for the future, let alone the personal ones, such as nearness to medical facilities shopping and the like. They were very efficient and diligent A house is not just a building, it is the place where one builds their life. In our case in our retirement years, there are different considerations for this. Besides the need of a solid house that does not require and extensive amount of repair and cost, the consideration of proximity to what is needed is paramount. I have a disability that requires me to be near medical facilities and also close to my family now residing in Maryland. This also means the house must be convenient to stores, church, the enjoyable things that both my husband and I like, such as boating and antique cars and their restoration. The properties that I looked through were vast. I know that I at least sent two or three different ones a week and sometimes two in a day. Several of them were offered by DJ Brady to have my son review them as possibilities. Many of them through his knowledge of where they were located were not suitable. Others would not have allowed me to live safely or at least in the future in my home with dignity and pride. With patience and knowledge he sifted through many emails and questions. His time return on all of my “many,” questions was astounding. I do not remember ever being put off, nor waiting until the next day. His consideration to his clients is that of he treats all like “family.” There could be no better recommendation that could be said. It is not easy to relocate, and the experience that my husband and I had, I truly hope that when we are settled into the new house..........he will visit and perhaps join us for dinner at our, “home.”

Charlotte was more than just a realtor, as a personal friend she also provided a sounding board and honest feedback alon g the way. I couldn't have purchased a new home and sold an old one in a month's time without Charlotte's guidance and support along the way. Thank you, Charlotte!

Charlotte Long was a joy to work with. She always made my husband and I feel that she was for us in our home-buying sear ch. She was very prompt and willing to show us houses as soon as we wanted to see them. Charlotte is honest, caring, kind, and patient. As first-time home-buyers, my husband and I had a lot of questions. Charlotte was able to answer most of them, and when she wasn't, she knew who to lead us to. We appreciate that Charlotte helped us find our dream home! We look forward to hearing more of her success stories in the future as she works alongside more singles, couples, and families in search of a home they will truly enjoy.

Review by
Jonathan Edwards, Callaway, MD
I had imagined buying a home would be stressful, confusing, complicated, and even out of my reach. DJ Brady helped me ev ery step of the way and made the whole process painless. His confidence and ability to explain things to me in a way that I could understand took all of my anxiety about buying a home away. DJ always made sure that I knew that my needs and desires were his number one priority. He either answered me immediately or contacted me back within a very short time frame anytime I called him. He never made me feel pressured when seeing any property. DJ conducted himself very professionally and was very personable. He made me feel comfortable and I knew that I could trust him with helping me make one of the most important decisions of my life. It was important to me to find an agent that I felt was honest and had my best interests and long term happiness in mind throughout the process. I found that with DJ Brady. I will be suggesting DJ Brady to any of my friends or family that even THINK about buying a home.

Dennis Brady Jr was the best choice for me as a realtor. He was very understanding of what would be the best purchase fo r me and was by my side throughout it all. He was very knowledgeable about the area and handled business very professionally. DJ always looked out for my best interest and was always ahead of the game. At no point did I ever feel pressured or overwhelmed during the process. DJ was able to make my first house buying process go very smooth, and I thank him greatly for that!

I would strongly recommend Dj Brady to be your next realtor. His passion, drive, knowledge of the area, and commitment t o his clients are second to none. During the process of selling a very old home Dj Brady worked tirelessly to make the process as smooth and effortless on our family as possible. His open communication with us allowed us to be at ease throughout the entire process.
Review by
Bryan Barthelme, Hollywood
DJ is a very good realtor. He took the time to listen to what we wanted. He showed us several houses before we found the perfect house. Each time he walked through with us and listened to what we liked and disliked about each house. Because of this he found us exactly what we were looking for. He was with us through the entire process right down to the last paper being signed at closing. He promptly answered our questions and was available when we needed something. Highly recommended.
Review by
Sarah H. Huntingtown MD
Charlotte made sure I knew the dates and times of meetings, sent updates before the closing so that I had the figures to speed up closing. She is a person of integrity.
Review by
Bernard Lake
We selected Charlotte Long because we believed she would be a strong advocate for our needs in the home selection and pu rchasing process. She showed great commitment and tenacity in being timely with scheduling showings, interacting with the seller's agent, title company, and the loan department, answering all questions and delivering exceptional customer service. Charlotte always went above and beyond to thoroughly explain all processes, research the answers to our questions, check for understanding, and follow up during the entire purchasing process. We trust her expertise and she was very approachable and professional. We are very impressed by the level of teamwork that Century 21 New Millennium showed during the purchasing process. All departments seemed to work together seamlessly with the interest of the client in mind. After dealing with Charlotte Long and Century 21 New Millennium, there is not another company or realtor I would ever go with. Our needs were met during and after the process had ended. We are very pleased with our experience.
Review by
Daniel & Meagin Ganus, Mechanicsville, MD
This was a difficult home to sell. None like it had sold in a year and we had to develop a strategy to stand out from t he others that were not moving. Charlotte was amazing. To sell this house in such a short time frame was a near miracle.
