Renee Mankoff, Associate Broker and Operations Manager for The North Star Team of Long & Foster
From 1994 through 2009, I was a top producing Commercial Real Estate Loan Officer for a mid-size commercial bank, originating loans on a nationwide basis for income producing properties, including new construction,re-positioningand rehab, and permanent financing for both acquisition and refinance with loan sizes ranging from $500,000 to $30 Million. As a result of the changes and challenges in the real estate finance industry, I found myself in a position to reconsider my career path.
In early 2010, I made the decision to take the necessary steps to obtain my Maryland Real Estate Salesperson’s license. I completed the required 60 hour class via the internet and obtained my license in July, 2010. During the spring months, I researched several national real estate companies and met with brokers and office managers representing the companies I considered to determine where the fit would be best to begin my new career. I started with Weichert Realtors – New Colony and, after 5 years there, made a switch to Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc. in Columbia, Maryland.
As a REALTOR with Long and Foster, I have access to the latest in marketing tools and transaction management. The collaborative environment coupled with the name recognition and outstanding reputation of the company allows me to offer the utmost in customer service, both as a listing agent and as a buyer’s agent. My clients benefit from cutting edge technology and a strong support network working with me from start to finish on every transaction.
Another benefit of my switch to Long and Foster has been the opportunity to teach classes to new agents as well as agents who are looking to take their careers to the next level. The recently redeveloped training program at Long and Foster embodies all of the fundamentals I use daily to provide my clients with the outstanding customer service and expertise they so deserve.
Going forward, I remain focused on the continued growth of my successful and rewarding career as a Realtor. I’m proud to have been recognized as Howard County’s Realtor of the Year for 2015 and as part of the Long and Foster family, I know that my goals and the goals of my clients will continue to be met.

"I hired Renee to sell a town home I owned in Columbia. She came highly recommended and i learned why. She is knowledgable and a tenacious person. Her follow up is phenomenal. She can be both sweet and when necessary rolls up her sleeves and gets people moving like a drill sergeant. Nice person all around, great Realtor"

"I give my highest recommendation to Renee Mankoff, who was our real estate agent for the sale of my mother’s house. This was a complicated transaction because my mother lived across the country from us, and we had to find an agent who could work long-distance with us. Renee came highly recommended from another real estate agent friend, and she certainly lived up to her reputation. Renee met with us promptly the first time we were visiting my mom’s house, to establish the general groundwork we’d be following. She was 100 percent timely and reliable, always available to answer questions by phone or email, and completely on top of all the steps we’d have to take to complete the transaction. In fact, she saved us from several potentially serious missteps. Though the transaction could easily have gotten bogged down in long-distance details, it went smoothly, from start to finish. Renee recommended a realistic price, we received a strong offer four days after we listed it, and Renee and the escrow agent she chose made sure the whole process went off without a hitch. Renee proved herself to be smart, ethical, experienced, and just a great collaborator. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good experience in selling a house."

"Renee was great to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us to find a house on a tight schedule. She is with you every step of the process and helps to answer any questions that might arise. She is very in tune with your specific desires and won't waste your time looking at houses that aren't right for you. We would definitely use her again and recommend her to our friends."
