"Dorie is a thorough professional and was a tremendous help. We are very grateful for all her help and expertise and dedication to help us achieve our goals. She was exceptional and her skills absolutely helped us get a great result." -M.P. Veihmeyer & C. Hughes, North Bethesda, MD
"It was a pleasure to work with Dorie Glass as my agent to purchase my new condo in King Farm. In less than six weeks we were able to view many properties all around Montgomery County, narrow and refine my search, and zero in on just the right type of home for me. She truly was my agent when it came to working with financial arrangements, the condo building managers and the agent for the seller. My head was swimming and she kept things running smoothly. I will certainly recommend Dorie to anyone who might need an agent for selling or buying."
-Maryann Guevara, Rockville. MD
"I live hundreds of miles from Maryland, so when my elderly mother needed to move to a senior residence, I was concerned with how to go about selling her condominium in Leisure World. Fortunately, through a relative’s recommendation, I found Dorie Glass. Dorie possesses skills that make her an excellent Realtor: great knowledge of the local housing market, strong abilities with electronic resources and, best of all, an intuitive ability to relate to clients, balancing professionalism and a personal touch. She knew what was needed to prepare the condo for sale. She recommended a painter, but also suggested that I get other bids for the work. After comparing, I selected the painter she recommended. His work was terrific. Dorie guided me in pricing the condo so that the unit would sell quickly at a very good price. I received electronic documents promptly and Dorie guided me through the entire process. When minor glitches hit, as they always do, she quickly shifted gears with good humor. I recommend Dorie without reservation for her skills, commitment and excellent results."

"As first-time home buyers in an extremely competitive market, we were nervous about starting our house hunt. Friends and acquaintances told us stories of their yearlong home searches and numerous declined offers. At the very enthusiastic recommendation of not one, but two
colleagues, we were fortunate to meet Dorie. She expertly guided us through the process, educating without assuming we did or did not know something, and negotiating skillfully on our behalf. Perhaps the best thing about working with Dorie is that she really listened to us. We wanted to live in a very particular, area and she didn’t advise us to expand our search, or waste our time looking at houses that didn’t appeal to our tastes even when inventory was low. Some agents we interviewed dismissed our wish list without even spending time getting to know us. We are extremely grateful for Dorie’s patience and advocacy. The very first offer we made was accepted, which is testament to Dorie’s skill. We are living inthe perfect location in a house that is very uniquely “us.” We are thrilled to recommend Dorie, especially to someone looking for their first home."
-Leah Brady & Pete VanDerwater, Takoma Park. MD
"I had the pleasure of working with Dorie Glass as a first time home buyer. Dorie exceeded every expectation. She was honest and caring. There were points in the process where we were unsure if we could move forward and she was encouraging and reassuring every step of the away. She also found us a wonderful lender who made the loan process simple and straightforward. I highly recommend Dorie for your home buying needs!" - Peg Chritz, Silver Spring, MD
"Through a referral from a new colleague at American University, I was very fortunate to meet Dorie Glass. Dorie made my relocation to the Washington D.C. area virtually seamless. Her extensive knowledge of the area coupled with her expertise in the housing market (not to mention her intuitive and personable hands-on style) allowed me to find the perfect condominium to meet my new lifestyle. Dorie is one of those rare real estate brokers who treats you like family but never forgets that it’s all about business. She will exceed your expectations!" -R. Cohen, Chevy Chase, MD
"Die Hard is the cliché that comes to mind when I think about my experience with Dorie Glass. I made my initial contact with Dorie, but little did I know that this would turn into a long term relationship! I use to have my doubts about using real estate agents but Dorie made a believer out of me. Most agents did not even want to talk to you unless you already had a pre-approval letter and were often very rude about letting you know this. Dorie referred me to a loan agent to obtain a letter, for my benefit not hers but still engaged in showing me properties. She was always very honest and up front with me about everything. This home search turned into a real trial of patience since I was pursuing a short sale.This pursuit turned into a 12 month endeavor. Mrs. Glass was steadfast as well as the driving force every step of the way. She projects an air of sincerity as well as professionalism. And please don’t let me leave out extremely knowledgeable about the trade. All these characteristics are important in a real estate agent. When you are making one of the most important purchasing decisions of your life, you want the best, you want Dorie Glass." -Denise A. Smith, Beltsville, MD
"I wish that I could express in a letter how much we appreciate how easy it was for us to deal with you. We cannot thank you enough for the incredible way you handled the sale of our home. Every one of our friends and neighbors were shocked that you were able to sell it, at full price, in one week! Some of our friends were very jealous that we got the price and speed with which we got it. You were able to pair our house with the most qualified purchaser, who knew exactly what they wanted and you knew the house was the only one for them. They got exactly what they wanted and we were able to go on with the rest of our lives. We hope that you will continue to have success in your field as you are truly professional." - Morton J. Zetlin, American Service Center, Potomac, MD
"We are repeat customers of Dorie's, sell and buy, due to her market knowledge, pricing and follow up for us as her customers. The service she provides is timely and professionally done." -B. Fisher, N. Potomac, MD
“Dorie was with us every step of the way during the sale of our house. From the first time we called her all the way to settlement. Then when we went to buy our new home, she took the time to get to know our needs from everything to schools, neighborhoods and our own personal taste. Dorie was always just a phone call away and ready to assist us. Our experience was much more than we expected...it was phenomenal." -M. Whelan, Olney, MD
"Dorie helped my ex-husband and I out during a very difficult time. The housing market was booming, and people were fighting over our home, but we couldn't sell until we had a legal separation agreement signed, which was taking much longer than we thought it would. Dorie managed to sift through the multiple contracts and advise us which one was best, and then held the buyer's hand for weeks and weeks as we kept delaying signing on the dotted line. I am not sure we would have kept the buyer had it not been for Dorie. She was, and is, a straight-shooter who tells it like it is and never looses her cool. She is down to earth and truly enjoys what she does and people respond to that. When it came time to purchase a new home of my own as a single woman, I again called Dorie. She got to know my needs quickly and was able to efficiently screen properties with me. She noticed when there were possible problems with certain properties, or ones she knew just weren't a good "match" for me before I even knew what happened! She always had my best interest in heart - she wasn't out to just make the sale. One day we walked into my current home and she immediately knew it was going to be mine even before I did. She was right. I love my house. I trust her implicitly. Dorie's knowledge base is top-notch, and I would use her again and recommend her in a heart beat. She's the best." -J. Spector, North Potomac, MD
"We would like to highly recommend Dorie Glass the Realtor with whom we worked to market and sell our Derwood, Maryland home during one of the worst periods in the history of Washington-area residential real estate.
We found that her unique combination of the following traits proved invaluable to us in developing the optimal strategy for pricing, advertising and showing our home to the best advantage in such a “bear” market:
- deep familiarity with the Washington-area market (based on experience in both good times and bad)
- commitment to providing tactful but direct and truthful ongoing feedback about neighborhood market conditions, buyer preferences, etc.
- comfort and competence with the relatively new web-based approach toadvertising preferred by today’s buyers
We also found that Dorie’s well-established professional relationships (with the other Realtors, with the title company, etc.), her responsiveness, and her attention to detail helped us move very quickly from the time we had an offer to the time we closed (approximately 30 days)."
-Susan and Patrick Quinn, Rockville, MD
"Dorie Glass worked tirelessly to get us our home. We were in a bidding contest with another prospective buyer. Dorie presented a wonderful case on our behalf and was able to convince the seller to accept our bid, even though it was for slightly less money than the competitor's bid." -E. Leibowitz, Rockville, MD.
"Dorie Glass made selling our home a painless process. Dorie not only understood the market she understood how to properly price, advertise and encourage buyers. She recognized our needs and concerns as sellers and anticipated the same with everyone who was interested in our home. Our home sold very quickly thanks to her professionalism and expertise. We are delighted to call her not just our real estate agent, but our friend." -B. Veihmeyer, Potomac, MD
"My husband and I were separating and selling our home of twenty-two years. A close friend of mine used Dorie to sell her house and she highly recommended her. After the first meeting I knew we were in good hands. She was able to put us both at ease, and gave us excellent advice for "sprucing up" our house without spending a fortune. Dorie made, what could have been a very difficult and miserable experience, a total breeze with her professionalism, expertise and of course her incredible sense of humor, something that was an absolute must in our situation. A year later, I was ready to buy a home of my own. After such a great experience of selling a home with Dorie, I of course, contacted her to help me find the perfect place to buy. Once again, Dorie guided me with ease through the "buying process." She was able to immediately tap into exactly what I wanted in a home, and therefore, save me from the torture of looking at homes that I would never be interested in purchasing. In a short time, we found a great home. As for the negotiation process, Dorie did all the work. I just sat back and watched her do her magic. I got a great house for a great price. When it came time for the settlement, I didn't have to worry about a thing. Once again, Dorie made my life so easy. She gave me a step by step list of who, and when to contact prior to the settlement, and of course everything went off with out a hitch. Thanks to Dorie, I am now the owner of beautiful townhouse, in a great area, and loving every moment."
-M. Goode, Germantown, MD
"Dorie is a first class Realtor who got it done, with a smile, in every respect. She is responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. Most of all, I just plain like her and consider her to be a friend." - T. DeWitt, Montgomery Village, MD.
