Monty kept answering every question and doubts, kept showing solutions and giving me all the encouragement I needed to keep going! He is not an average real estate! He is the one! Personal! Human! Has a beautiful family and understands how personal it is own a home! Thank you Monty!!
As a nervous and completely uninformed first-timer, I tested the patience of a few realtors before finding one as caring and professional as he was. Monty took the time to "hear" what I wanted in a house and home and worked to help match the market to my preferences rather than suggesting that I "settle" for what was available. In addition, he ensured that I met and understood all of the requirements and expectations of house buying and home ownership, from loan qualification to inspections to closing -- and he has even provided follow-up information on service contracting and furnishings that might be needed. Monty was a joy to work with throughout the experience. Thanks to him, I have a beautiful house in a great neighborhood. While I sincerely hope that this will be my "forever home", I will not hesitate to call him again if I have occasion to buy another property or a need to sell, and I have provided his contact info to friends who are considering moves. I will always be glad I found Monty Boland!
It was a highly competitive market at the time, but we prevailed thanks to his expertise.
He takes great pride in his work and goes above and beyond for his clients from the time he meets them until we get to the settlement table.
It was a great experience working with Monty!
We started working with Monty in 2016 when my wife and I were searching for our first home in Montgomery County, MD (MoCo). Despite being newcomers to the market, Monty made it a stress and hassle free process. He was always available to discuss each step of the way whether in person, by phone, or email. As a lifelong resident of MoCo, Monty knows the area very well and has a lot of insights that other realtors won’t have. For example, Monty knows the reputations of local businesses (e.g., lenders, roofers, home inspectors, contractors, you name it) which saved us from having to spend a lot of time in the vetting process. Most importantly, we always felt like Monty had our best interests at heart during the home buying process, and that resulted in a low stress, low pressure, enjoyable experience! We now consider Monty to be a close friend and we’re once again working with Monty as we look to upsize our home. Thanks, Monty!
He listened carefully to what our needs were and helped us negotiate and navigate the purchase process. He went over and above to assist us as we were not living locally. His strong attention to detail was invaluable, his quick response time was reassuring and his extensive list of contacts for auxiliary services really facilitated our move. Reach out to Monty-you will be glad you did!
. He knows the real estate market, is respectful of the wishes of his clients, and is a pleasure to work with. Over the years we worked with a number of realtors and he is, by far, the best of the lot. There are lots of realtors in this area but only a few can match Monty's competence, efficiency and wise guidance.
We were first time home buyers in an extremely competitive market and Monty was the perfect person to navigate the process for us. He was ALWAYS available to show us a house, even on short notice. He was quick to get us comps in the neighborhoods and check in with the listing agent for all the homes that we were intersted in ASAP to get a feel for the situation, and help us get an offer in quickly if we wanted to go that route. Most importantly, he NEVER pressured us to go above our budget, or move on something we weren't sure about. In a little over a month, we purchased a home that checked all of our boxes. In this crazy market, we were worried we would have to purchase at the top of our budget, but we were able to get a home well within our budget with Monty's help. We highly recommend him!
What could have ending being a complicated transaction, because I wasn’t the primary owner and because the condo was a mutual, (I know, complicated) turned out to be relatively stress-free transaction. Monty is very knowledgeable and affable. He takes the time to explain things and shows up on time ready to work. Thanks for helping us out during a difficult time. I highly recommend Monty for all your real estate needs.
He knew exactly what we were looking for and was always able to negotiate additional concessions. Looking forward to working together again on the next one!
He helped me buy a house in an insane market. Monty was professional and incredibly responsive throughout the whole process. I even recommended him to my parents!
In 2013 we worked with him to sell our house in Chevy Chase for above asking. He went the extra mile with his wife who is an interior designer to get our kitchen remodeled and staged for sale which made the photos beautiful. I’d recommend Monty to anyone who is looking for the best!
Each time he was extremely professional while looking out for our best interest. Monty was very knowledgeable and attentive to all of our needs. I would recommend him to anyone in need of professional assistance in the complicated real estate environment that exists today.
He was patient, knowledgeable and professional every step of the way. He even stayed after settlement to jump start our car in the parking lot. Above and beyond.
He is patient and thorough in presenting options to you and follows through with every detail. Awesome!
He managed to help me purchase a condominium at Grosvenor Park after my bid wasn’t accepted, because the first offer was rejected and the bank then lowered the price by $20,000. Monty learned of this and notified me, resulting in the purchase of the condo at a very reduced cost. It’s all because Monty strives to help his clients in the best possible way.
He helped me process all the information and helped me secure a loan.
This makes him a good listener. He can determine his client’s “real” real estate needs. I have worked with Monty on two moves...so far. His recommendations and guidance were invaluable.
He made everything very easy!
He established good rapport and answered all my questions and sought answers when he didn't know something. His follow up and follow through were much appreciated. Dealing with my daughter in Boston who was seeking the property and me here in Maryland, her on-site rep could have been tricky but Monty handled it with clear communication. Five stars!
Monty kept answering every question and doubts, kept showing solutions and giving me all the encouragement I needed to keep going! He is not an average real estate agent! He is the one! Personal! Human! Has a beautiful family and understands how personal it is own a home! Thank you Monty!!
We really appreciate that he reached out to us to sell our condo after helping us rent it a few years ago, the timing was perfect and it would have never happened without his connections and ingenuity. The process was as seamless and smooth as we've ever seen. He was very professional and always responsive and anticipated questions and potential issues. Many thanks Monty!
We called him in after frustration with our first realtor. Monty was attentive to our wishes and relentless in pursuit of ore dream property. I would d highly recommend Monty as a top real estate agent.
Monty is knowledgeable, smart, patient, cheerful, attentive and very client oriented. He listens to what you need, helps you think through your objectives, provides sound advice and works with you providing ongoing support. Monty is responsive, punctual and reliable, but he is also flexible and responsive. If you want an excellent agent at your side, I highly recommend him.
He not only helped us find a true gem of a house but helped us navigate the purchase process, helped us with new homeowner projects, and helped us get our previous condo rented. Monty can do it all. Any real estate agent can setup an email alert for you with random properties based on some variables. Monty actually spends time getting to know you and what things are important. Then he helps find properties that truly meet your needs. We only viewed 4 houses before we found the right one. Through Monty’s superb negotiation skills we went under contract in 3 days and were ready to close in only a couple of weeks. Finally, I think what makes Monty a great agent, besides his local knowledge, responsiveness, process, and negotiation skills, is that he has an incredible team of contractors ready to help you turn any house into a home. Monty didn't just say goodbye at the closing table. He helped us and manage all the little projects we needed to do as homeowners (painting, chimney sweeps, ADT, utilities, etc). Monty not only has a “guy” for everything, but professional contractors, painters, landscapers, etc. We enjoyed working with him so much that we had him helped us rent our Condo in D.C. Again, Monty managed that process with incredible responsiveness and skill.
Great communication. Quick responses and work. Absolutely would recommend this gentleman to anyone anytime!!.
He is very helpful and responsive, knows the market well and made sure we felt confident in our decisions. I hope that we have found a home that we will be in for a long time, but if we ever have to move again we will definitely call Monty!
He helped me to put an offer on that house. Even though I did not end up buying the house, Monty made a very good first impression on me. As a result, I continued to work with him in the house search. Seven weeks later and after an intense search and making offers on five different houses, we found a property in Chevy Chase, which we ended up buying. There were two things that I would like to highlight. First, Monty was very responsive and patient. Whenever I saw a house that would come on the market I would call him and we would go see the property within a few hours whether it was middle of a working day or the weekend. This was essential given how competitive the real estate market has been in the area. Monty was always honest and I never felt that he was pushing me to buy a house just so that he could make his commission quickly. He understood what my preferences were and he would give me objective feedback. Monty was also very resourceful during the buying process. He referred me to the best people, including a loan officer who gave me the mortgage with best terms. Monty has what it takes and I am confident that his hard work, patience and honesty will take him a long way in the real estate business.
He is polite, attentive and responsive and provides his service with a smile and positive attitude. He listens to his client and answers questions and provides sound advice while patiently allowing the customer to consider and weigh all options. We bought and sold with Monty and both experiences were great. I highly recommend Monty.
He understood what I needed. Persistent but patient. We only toured three places. He understood. Could not have worked out better. I always felt like he was “on it.” Never felt annoyed by the process. Looking to buy again soon. Good luck!
My wife and I worked with him to both buy a new house and sell our old house. He was thoughtful and very reliable. I would definitely recommend working with Monty!
He keeps you updated on all parts of the process, gives excellent feedback and is genuinely invested in your process. Monty took a very tough situation for our family and make it seamless.
And he followed up on every aspect through and after closing. Would highly recommend him.
Monty Boland as a Real Estate Agent is extremely professional in his dealings. Because of Mr. Boland's exceptional skills in negotiations , I was able to secure a home in about 2 months time frame. Congratulations Mr. Boland for a job well done. I will definetely recommend you to my friends who are looking for a house. Thank you so much.
We knew what we were looking for, but were in no hurry to buy. Monty persevered and regularly sent us properties to consider. When we finally found the right one, he was like a pit bull advocating for our interests, navigating around costly challenges and guiding us through settlement. He kept us well informed and never hesitated to pick up the phone on our behalf. Monty earned our unqualified recommendation.
Monty was attentive from start to finish. As a result, the process of renewing the lease on the unit was smooth and successful. He was always courteous and professional -- keeping track of deadlines, making the extra efforts, and answering each of my many questions. He made me more money by recommending a way to win a higher percentage increase than I was originally considering! The tenant agreed to the increase and I am happy for the additional income. I highly recommend Monty's services. Hire him!
Delivered what I - as the client - wanted. Reliable.
I was fortunate to have him as a realtor, he helped me navigate complexities, clarified the process, provided helpful insights and was readily available to address all questions I had throughout the process. I strongly recommend Monty and would work with him again if I ever need to purchase another home.
I am moving from out of state, and he was able to coordinate with my father to find several great listings and to help us narrow it down to one that checks pretty much every must-have box I can think of. His knowledge of the area, quick responses, and patience were all highly appreciated, and I’d definitely recommend seeking him out if you are trying to find your perfect place.
Very thorough and ensured we had all the information and access needed to find the right house in a crowded market. I highly recommend Monty!
It was such a pleasant experience from the first moment we "met" over email. Monty worked hard to understand both my husband's and my similar and different likes in a home. I honestly do not think I have ever encountered anyone as positive, or patient, as Monty. Once we found the home we both liked Monty helped us locate a lender, an incredible building inspection company, and he followed through on all of the many things that are easy to overlook after a contract is negotiated. I cannot tell you how many times my husband and I have looked at each other and said how thankful we were that Monty represented us in our purchase. I found his insights, knowledge, and experience invaluable to us.
