Reviews from our clients

Lewis made our house search fun AND educational. A huge plus in working with Lewis is his knowledge of home construction, inside and out. We were primarily looking at older homes and he would routinely point out positive and (potentially) negative aspects of the houses we looked at. He could also estimate on the fly what it would cost to do certain repairs or renovations. We had a great time looking at houses and when we found one we wanted to buy, he helped us put together a winning offer (in a multiple offer situation) and resolve any issues prior to closing. His attention to detail is also superlative, which is exactly what you need in someone drafting a contract for the largest purchase of your life.

I cannot describe how helpful Lewis was. We met Lewis when he was showing us a house and could tell immediately that this was the guy we wanted to work with. Lewis immediately made us feel at ease and told us what we needed to do. He walked us through the whole process, easing our anxiety along the way. Even through there were multiple offers on the table when we put in our offer, due to his ability to send the sellers a wonderfully crafted letter, we won and closed on our dream house. Lewis answered all and every one of our questions that we had during the process, no matter how big or small the question was and he responded quickly. He kept us focused during the home buying process, but never overwhelmed. I would highly recommend Lewis to any one who is looking to purchase a house. Lewis is truly a real down to earth guy who still has the best interest of his clients in mind and truly wants to help you find your prefect house. In the cutthroat world of real estate a guy like Lewis is very rare

Donna recently helped us buy the dream home for our family. Donna was incredibly responsive in getting us access to view and tour new properties that came on the market in the area in which we were interested. I am convinced that her quick actions greatly enabled us to get our new home. She was able to show us the property the day it came on the market, and then worked with us that very night (late into the evening I might add) to get an offer submitted on the home on our behalf, which was accepted shortly thereafter. I would recommend Donna wholeheartedly to other prospective buyers. Her positive attitude, willingness to answer any questions and address concerns, and turnaround paperwork quickly is a tremendous asset. We will now actually be using Donna's services as a seller to place our previous home on the market and get it sold.

Lewis was excellent! He always responded to us almost immediately, even on weekends and when he was sick! He knew the area really well and had very helpful insights about home construction as we walked through homes. He was also just friendly and never pressured us. His knowledge and patience made working with him very enjoyable
Clarissa Kornell
I was a first time buyer and Andrew took me through the process step-by-step. We discussed what I was looking for and from that we built searches for condo's in the area. Andrew was very flexible in finding time to come with me to look at properties. Overall the experience was low-pressure and I was able to find a great place for a great price. I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking for property in the Silver Spring area.
Kurt Ricketts
Lewis recently helped my husband and me purchase a home in Rockville and it was a wonderful experience. He is very familiar with Montgomery County and was able to answer all of our questions. Lewis was responsive to our emails and able to work with our schedules to show us all of the houses we were interested in. We were first time home buyers and he was very patient and helpful as he walked us through the entire process of putting in offers, choosing a mortgage company and a home inspector, and finally closing on our house. We always felt confident that he was giving us good advice and we never felt that he was trying to sell us on something we weren't interested in. Finally, Lewis is a master electrician and generally very knowledgeable about home construction and we found this very helpful as we walked through different houses with him.
Lisa Stevens and Damion Mullins
We wholeheartedly agree with the previous reviewers regarding Andrew. We actually met him for the first time in 2012 at an open house where he was representing a seller. We found him to be personable, knowledgeable, and that he answered all of our questions in great detail. Because we liked his calm demeanor and his experience, when we were ready to buy a home and needed an agent, we turned to Andrew. He was extremely patient in answering any questions that we had as first-time home buyers, as well as educating and guiding us throughout this process. Equally important, Andrew had a great sense for the right strategy needed to do the deal. We cannot thank Andrew enough for his help and the great job that he did to get us the house. We highly recommend Andrew and would use him again.
Carl Garrett
Lewis was great to work with. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to buying a home. He took all our wants/needs (and of course budget) and found houses that worked for us. He worked with our schedule, and was very understanding of the time constraints having a 1 year old tag-along. Lewis helped us pursue the house of our dreams, even after it was taken off the market for repairs. He followed up with not only the listing agent, but also the company that performed the repairs to ensure that we were getting the whole story. We would highly recommend Lewis, and Donna KERR Group Real Estate Services for your next home.
Peter and Jennifer Flood
Andrew is a tremendous agent. Before making the decision to rent a home, he educated my wife and myself on the best option for us - whether it was buying or renting. During this process and throughout the whole process, Andrew was totally focused on what was best for us, his client. Andrew was incredibly thorough in his process of identifying the best option and then finding the perfect house to fit our needs. During the walk-through, he noticed things that I would not even think to ask about. His knowledge of homes is second to none. He took out all the stress related to the process and checked in many times after we had settled to make sure things were still going smoothly. If I am ever in the market for a home in the DC metro area, the only Realtor I would consider is Andrew.
Benjamin and Paris Freedman
We have worked with Mr. Eisel for two investment purchases, each involving complex issues. While Andrew's expertise is in Real Estate and not the legal and process issues that came up, he was always on top of things, saw to it that what needed doing got done, kept us well-informed, and looked after our interests. His level of commitment is something you almost don't expect to find in today's precarious real estate markets. He treats you not just as a customer, but as a friend. If you're looking for a Realtor whom you can trust implicitly and rely on to take care of you throughout the process, he's your guy.
The Schecter Family
Lewis always responded to my questions and concerns within about an hour or less and was always cheerful and upbeat with ideas and fall back positions so that I am now in a house that I am crazy about and have already made friends with the great neighbors and am invited to be in the pool club and so on.. thanks to Lewis finding me the house, the financing and the energy to make it happen. He is a great real estate agent.

Donna helped us buy one and sell one home in Silver Spring. We entered into a contract on a new home before we even had ours on the market. So getting our existing home sold quickly was imperative. After buying our new home Donna and her team sprang into action and helped us get our house ready to get listed. Donna and her talented team had our house staged, photographed, marketing copy written and listed online in all the right places in a few short days. We had incredible response to the online listing and the house was very ‘busy’ and was under contract at a well-priced, but aggressive price in two days. Our advice to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in the Silver Spring area would be to contact Donna, hire Donna to work with you, listen to Donna, then do as she says and then prepare to have lots of action on your house. Keep calm and listen to Donna is now our new mantra. Thanks for everything Donna—you and your team were amazing and the results speak for themselves!
Lynn Margiotta
Donna is so committed to you. When you are her client, she will not stop until she has sold your house or found you the house f your dreams. She is on it 24/7 and provides you with plenty of options AND helps you understand what you can realistically afford. My wife and 2 kids are in a wonderful home today thanks to Donna and her awesome team.
Jose Dominguez
Donna and her team were absolutely amazing through the entire buying process. Donna helped us narrow down our choices, which seemed like an impossible task at first. Everyone was very personable and helpful. 5 outta 5 stars all around!
Samantha Jones
When we bought our home eight years ago, Donna Kerr was the seller’s agent. We had such a good time working with her back then that when we had outgrown our first home, and were ready to buy a new one, working with Donna was the clear choice. We loved our home, but we also knew that our small and outdated kitchen was going to pose a problem for getting it sold. Jen Clark, one of the designers working with Donna helped us clear that hurdle by designing and overseeing a kitchen renovation that turned our biggest negative into our best selling point. In addition to the kitchen reno, Jen helped us come up with a plan for decluttering and she staged our home beautifully, and thoughtfully – taking into consideration that we were still living, and working, in the home with two small children. They didn’t stop there. Donna aggressively marketed our home and we had an offer and a contract in under two weeks. Now we’re looking for a new home and Donna’s expertise and knowledge of the area has been invaluable. She’s taken the time to get to know us, and we feel like she has a solid understanding of what we’re looking for in a home and a community. She’s even helped us look at houses that aren’t on the market yet. And when it came time to put in an offer, Donna helped us put together an offer that was within our budget but still beat out two other offers. As an added bonus, Donna has even helped keep an eye on our kids when we’ve needed to bring them with us to look at homes. Part therapist, part designer, part friend, part babysitter, and more: Donna and her team have been fantastic. We often feel like we’re her only clients even though we know we aren’t. Selling and buying a home is stressful, but Donna, and everyone on her team, has helped make the process run as smoothly as possible. If we need to move again, Donna will be the first call we make.
Ruth Martin
Donna helped us sell our house and buy a fabulous new house. We were really worried that we would be without a home in the process. She promised we would not be homeless, and kept her word! Then at the negotiating table with a tough seller she was with us all the way. I really appreciated her attention to detail and the personal approach
Andrew Catanzaro
I used Donna to sell my house and also purchase my new residence. The entire process was hassle free. From the moment I met her, Donna demonstrated that she is energetic and a hard worker. She does not avoid difficult negotiation issues nor does she place any burdens on her clients.
