Catarina Bannier & Marcie Sandalow at Compass(Lic #SP98357877 DC)
"Marcie helped my wife and I buy our first home and we couldn't have been in better hands. She knew the area we started looking in and helped us find options there and also in nearby areas. She listened to our desires and never made us feel silly as first time buyers when asking questions. She was also great at pointing out subtle and not-so-subtle things we overlooked in neighborhoods, houses and properties.
Marcie also went above and beyond with our busy schedules seeing homes with us on weekends or at the last minute on a weekday. She also was available when our inspector and contractors needed to see the place and we couldn't be home, even after we closed and moved in.
We worked mostly with Marcie but when she was unavailable (a rare event), Cati stepped in and did a great job in the same regards. They were both present for our inspection and helped prepare our offers and closings and had great synergy together with their advice.
We love our house and have recommended Marcie and Cati to numerous friends.
Thanks Marcie & Cati!"

"Marcie Sandalow was recommended to me by a friend whose house she sold. She spoke highly of how well the sale was handled. When my mother passed away it was difficult for me to deal with the many responsibilities that were left to me. The sale of the house that belonged to our family for 50 years was the task that I foresaw as the most difficult. Thanks to Marcie and Cati the preparation was fast and the sale even faster. We had no problems and I believe a lot of the reason was their expert knowledge and their quick execution. I could not be more pleased."

"My wife and I have already recommend Cati to our friends. We will continue too. Cati has pretty much "held our hand" as we bought our home. Without Cati we would still be in apartment. Cati is understanding, sincere and honest. She does not push you. Just a terrific person."

"Cati and Marcie were professional, knowledgeable and unfailingly patient in the sale of our house. It can be stressful to deal with contracts, buyers and financing, but even when we had a contract or two fall through due to various reasons, our agents remained devoted to finding the right buyer for us. We are grateful for their perseverance and help which ultimately ended in the successful sale of our home."

"Cati and Marcie will be there for you through everything, especially when your sale or purchase encounters inevitable rough spots, and they think creatively to work around obstacles."

"My wife and I are stationed overseas, and I was in town for only one full day of house-hunting. Catarina, showed me several properties during that day, but I did not find that "perfect" house. Catarina paid close attention to the things I liked and did not like. Having found nothing interesting that day, she continued to look for places that fit my preferences and sent me several listings after I returned home overseas. We found a very interesting house among her "finds", and she quickly arranged to go to the house and give us a virtual tour of the house via Skype. It was perfect, and she got us through the successful acceptance of an offer working with the owners. Were it not for her proactive and resourceful efforts, we would not have found the house, nor would we have been able to make a timely and successful offer (several others were close on our heels trying to do the same). She was a perfect fit for helping my wife and I work through the bewildering details of finding and buying a house - one that is now our home. Thank you, Catarina!"

"Catarina and Marcie handled both the sales of our condo and the purchase of our home and we were thrilled we the services they provided. At every step of the process the kept us informed, answered all of our questions and gave us very sage advice. They have a great understanding of the Bethesda market and the best way to approach both the sale and purchase very strategically. Thanks to their efforts we had a very positive and stress free experience."

"Catarina and Marcie were nothing but great from start to finish. At our first meeting we were impressed with how smart, easy-going, thoughtful, organized and on top of it they were. And they delivered nothing less throughout the entire process. A few days before closing, Marcie helped resolve a repair issue with the house that we just didn't have time to attend to. They went above and beyond to make the experience as pleasant as possible. I would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone wanting a team of fantastic realtors!"

"I was interested in working with real estate agents that would be willing to help to guide me through the complex process of purchasing a home.
Both Cati and Marcie provided excellent service and professionalism and took the time to answer my questions and ensure that my desired objectives were met."
