“Thoughtful, Persistent and Thorough”
Home Seller

“Catarina Bannier and Marcie Sandalow do an outstanding job of helping you assess your property’s value and making sure you get your asking price, if not more for it. They are thoughtful, persistent and thorough in their assessment of your property and your situation. Whether it is taxes, title searches, dealing with condo boards or having a property fixed up for sale, they are first rate. I recommend them highly.”

Max Lockwood, Mount Pleasant, Washington DC

“Understanding, Sincere and Honest”
Home Buyers

“My wife and I have already recommend Cati to our friends. We will continue too. Cati has pretty much “held our hand” as we bought our home. Without Cati we would still be in apartment. Cati is understanding, sincere and honest. She does not push you. Just a terrific person.”

Revital & Dov Schwartz, Shepherd Park, DC

“Thrilled With The Services”
Home Seller and Buyers

“Catarina and Marcie handled both the sales of our condo and the purchase of our home and we were thrilled with the services they provided. At every step of the process the kept us informed, answered all of our questions and gave us very sage advice. They have a great understanding of the Bethesda market and the best way to approach both the sale and purchase very strategically. Thanks to their efforts we had a very positive and stress free experience.”

Dave & Karen M., Bethesda MD

“Professional, knowledgeable and unfailingly patient”
Seller & Buyer

“Cati and Marcie were professional, knowledgeable and unfailingly patient in the sale of our house. It can be stressful to deal with contracts, buyers and financing, but even when we had a contract or two fall through due to various reasons, our agents remained devoted to finding the right buyer for us. We are grateful for their perseverance and help which ultimately ended in the successful sale of our home.”

Rebekah Ahrens, Arlington VA (formerly DC)

“Smart, easy-going, thoughtful and organized”
Home Seller

“Catarina and Marcie were nothing but great from start to finish. At our first meeting we were impressed with how smart, easy-going, thoughtful, organized and on top of it they were. And they delivered nothing less throughout the entire process. A few days before closing, Marcie helped resolve a repair issue with the house that we just didn’t have time to attend to. They went above and beyond to make the experience as pleasant as possible. I would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone wanting a team of fantastic realtors!”

J. Fromuth, Bethesda, MD
