Testimonials From Past Clients

             We wanted to thank you so much for your help in selling our house. It was a tough road and tough market, but we made it through thanks to you. We really appreciate all of your hard work and the seemingly endless open houses that you had to sit through. Your patience and guidance really helped keep us sane. We will definitely give you a high recommendation to all of our friends.

    And a note from John - In a tough market, I would have had no better agent than you! We are very fortunate that you were there to sell our home and represent us so well. Your hard work paid off.

    Happy holidays to you and your family.

    Mindi and John Goodpaster

             Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate the extra efforts you put into selling our home, including helping us with securing our next home out of state. You have been the greatest realtor we have ever dealt with! We feel like you have been as much a friend as an agent! We will always recommend you to anyone who needs a realtor. We feel very fortunate to have met you and we hope to keep in touch!


    Bill and Mary Grauer, formerly of Galt Ave.

             Thank you again for the help in selling my home on Hardy Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. The market was not good for selling a home and you assisted and guided me in what I should and should not do to sell my home. You were able to show the home over 50 times during the winter which was excellent and you supplied your expertise and lead me through the contract signing and getting the home inspection repairs done for the buyer. Your help and assistance were greatly appreciated; without your help I would probably still be attempting to sell the home! Thanks for a wonderful selling experience with you and the Hannett Team. Thanks again, Harold.

    Mike Horton, formerly of Hardy Ave.

             I had an agent who was a friend of a good friend look over my house for possible listing, and he wanted me to do all kinds of things to my sound but troubled property before he'd do anything with it, other than put it on the investor market. When Harold saw it later, he was fine with putting it up for sale as it was, and in two months it sold for tens of thousands of dollars more than the other agent was discussing. Harold was sensitive to pricing my house and was well familiar with the neighborhood, as he's sold real estate in the area since 1985. He also saved me money by rewording some of the calculations in the contract we accepted, because he understands numbers at a gut level. I didn't hold against him that he used to come by in past decades handing out promotional trinkets door-to-door. The apple butter was always delicious, and I still use the meter stick.

    Richard Handal, formerly of Harris Ave.

             This is to thank you for the efficient handling of the sale of our house at 3007 Kramer St. We had moved to North Carolina and because my wife and I are in our eighties, we couldnít travel to Wheaton to take care of minor problems as they arose. You handled every problem in an efficient manner and saved us money and difficult travel problems. Thank you for the excellent handling in a difficult housing market.

    Charles and Mary Ellen Arnold, formerly of Kramer St.

             We can all admit that the housing market of 2008 was a frightening one for those trying to sell; and it was with this in mind that my husband, William, and I were concerned about how we would sell our home in Wheaton. Our move out of state came suddenly in the spring and we were not prepared. In the past, William and I had looked at purchasing a house further out from D.C. than where we were living in Silver Spring, and Harold and Rose were the nicest of the realtors we had dealt with. Although we did not buy a house at that time, Harold and Rose were very kind, offering their time and opinions again and again. So when we moved suddenly out of state, we sent an e-mail to Harold.

             Harold was great: he was easy to contact by phone and e-mail, and worked with us long-distance (since we were already out of state during the selling process) to get the Wheaton house on the market and sold. Harold and Rose wer e the ideal folks to work with. There was never any pressure to buy, back when we were looking at houses in the mid-2000's, and they were very supportive in our effort to sell the Wheaton house at a reasonable price in 2008. We are very pleased with their work, and I would recommend the Hannett's to others.

    Jinny and William McGill, formerly of Dawson Ave.

             We wanted to thank you so much for your help in selling our house. It was a tough road and tough market, but we made it through thanks to you. We really appreciate all of your hard work and the seemingly endless open houses that you had to sit through. Your patience and guidance really helped keep us sane. We will definitely give you a high recommendation to all of our friends.

             And a note from John - In a tough market, I would have had no better agent than you! We are very fortunate that you were there to sell our home and represent us so well. Your hard work paid off.

    Mindi and John Goodpaster, formerly of Lytle St.

             I had a very successful experience in selling my house with Harold Hannett. He and his wife, Rose, were very much engaged in the process and were always available when needed. They were especially helpful to me in preparing my house for showing. I highly recommend Harold and Rose Hannett as agents who understand the market and are able to satisfy the needs of the client.

             Working with The Hannett Team was a real pleasure. All of our questions were answered promptly and any concerns we had were addressed quickly. The Hannett Team facilitated the prompt sale of our home for top dollar and helped us find our dream home shortly thereafter. If you are trying to buy or sell a home, I would rely on the The Hannett Team for their knowledge, expertise and client-focused service.

    Isabelle and Rodney Yerger

             When it came time to sell the Wheaton house where we had lived since 1980, we knew that we would choose Harold and Rose Hannett to be our agents. We had seen their FOR SALE signs for years and were impressed with how quickly the SOLD placard was added. We felt that they would know the Wheaton area and would use their wisdom and guidance to lead us toward our own SOLD sign in this current slower market. We were not disappointed. Harold worked WITH us to establish a fair price and gave us suggestions on how to prepare and present our house for sale. He communicated his excitement about the house both to us and to prospective buyers through his creative advertising and his excellent on-line pictures. Harold held several open houses to enable prospective buyers to have that firsthand look on their own. Harold's friendliness, sense of humor, positive outlook, and professionalism provided us the encouragement we needed to believe that our ho use would sell even in the middle of winter. Harold also helped us find a new house closer to our daughter, son-in-law, and baby grandson. He listened to our wishes, researched the area carefully, took us on visits to homes that fit the profile we had given, and within a very short period of time, led us to just the right house for our needs.

    Harold and Rose Hannett work together FOR the client and deserve the many kudos they have earned throughout the years. We cannot recommend them more highly.

    Greg and Lynn Wood

             We decided to use Harold to assist in selling my late parents' estate after interviewing several Realtors. Harold was extremely familiar with the local area, properties available, and the market. He expertly guided us through the difficult decision on the price of the property during a time of changing market values. The eventual buyer came through one of the open houses that Harold held. As a result of his efforts, the sale of the house went smoothly.

    I highly recommend him and his team.

             Thank you so much for your help and guidance in finding our home here in Ellicott City. Relocating is never easy, especially to an area as large as the Baltimore-DC corridor. We truly appreciated your helping us focus on the neighborhoods and houses we would be most interested in. I felt you really took the time to talk to us and figure out what exactly we wanted. As a result, we're really happy with where we ended up - in a house that is the right size for us, within good commuting distance of Kurt's job, in a good school district for our children and in a great neighborhood with friendly neighbors.

    You and Rose are exactly what someone would want in a buyer's agent: you have lots of local knowledge, you answer phone calls and emails promptly, you like to negotiate, and you follow up on the closing details to ensure everything goes as planned. In fact, of the three houses we've purchased in the last 6 years, this was the only one to close on schedule!

    Last but not least, your easygoing personalities and sense of humor were very much appreciated and helped us keep things in perspective! We really enjoyed working with you both and hope we can stay in contact. We'll definitely refer business to you as we have the opportunity!

    Sincerely, Meredith and Kurt Keller

             My husband and I used Harold and Rose for the third time recently, despite the fact that a close relative is now a licensed agent. We found a great home, again somewhat unique like the former Pepco substation we once owned on Livingston St. in Wheaton! And Harold helped us to get top dollar for our current home! We've really enjoyed working with them!

             We chose Harold Hannett because of the impressive list of homes he and his team sold in our area. Once we met with Harold we were amazed by the quality and speed of the preliminary research he had done to help us to make the best decision. I would like to note their exceptional attention to details in all aspects of the process. One of those details (an FHA payoff) resulted in significant savings for us in mortgage interest ($1,220). We had an overall confidence in a positive outcome despite our lack of experience in selling houses. I would like to thank Harold and his Team for helping us in such a complex process and hope to work with him again if we decide to buy a house in the future.

             After my Father's death, I was appointed to settle his estate. Part of this settlement was selling his home of 45 years in Wheaton, MD. I had remembered a magnet my Dad had on his refrigerator from Harold and Rose. I contacted them and met with Harold to discuss selling the house. Not only was Harold an incredibly pleasant, understanding person to work with, he had complete knowledge of the market not only in the area where my Dad's house is located, but in the surrounding areas. I was able to make decisions about the listing and the sale in an efficient manner based on his experience. He helped me get through what was a very difficult transaction for me emotionally with his wonderful personality. I highly recommend their team to anyone looking to buy or sell anywhere in Montgomery County and beyond.

             I happily give this testimonial regarding Harold and Rose Hannett of Long and Foster. Last year, Harold represented me with the sale of my old home and the purchase of my current home. I can't recommend anyone better than Harold. His wealth of knowledge regarding real estate and his fantastic "can do" attitude made both transactions move along very smoothly. He is also extremely thorough at the closing. He pointed out some mistakes the other party's realtor missed and I think that the couple I was purchasing the house from wished they had Harold on their side. I can truly say that I consider Harold and Rose friends even now, one and a half years after our business has concluded.

             Iíve been working with Harold professionally for 3 years now. I liked him so much that I decided to use him as my realtor to purchase my current home, so I could see the service everyone seemed to like so much. He was readily available on short notice to show homes in Howard County and always brought along some good-natured humor! Despite the strong sellers' market, he did a good job helping us negotiate a bit with the original contract and later with some inspection items! If you want someone that takes special care with each and every one of his clients, then give Harold a call, you won't be disappointed.

             Maureen and I would like to express our deep appreciation for your efforts in helping us sell and buy our new home. The Hannett Team was extremely professional and thorough in all aspects of buying and selling. Your guidance in the topsy-turvy world of Maryland real estate was phenomenal. The photos of the house on your website were exceptional and your determination for customer satisfaction is to be commended. We look forward to having y'all sell our current home when we leave the area. Thanks again for all your work. Take care and we'll talk to you soon. Maureen's trying to arrange an evening for us to meet soon.

             My husband and I chose Harold Hannett and The Hannett Team because we associated their name with good results. Once hiring them to sell our house, we were impressed with the professional level of marketing materials used to get us a sell. We were very satisfied with their service. Mr. Hannett even helped us to save some additional money at our closing which was a added touch of his knowledge and professionalism.
