  • From the Seller Info section: "Remember, prospective buyers will be 'comparison shopping' and keenly aware of subtle differences in houses for sale in the area. Be sure to tell your listing broker why yours is special - from any home remodeling to afternoon winter sunshine."

  • From the Buyer Info section: "The obvious source of money for your down payment is either your savings or the proceeds from the sale of a home you already own, but there are some other not so obvious sources. In recent years, for example, 'parent power' has taken some new twists for first-time buyers."

  • From the Marketing Plan section: "If your agent is not a good negotiator, not only will you not get the best deal, often your house won't get sold at all. We take pride in this aspect of our business experience."

  • From the Home Inspectors section: "Even if the home inspection is to be for informational purposes only, it is your duty to get a solid general knowledge about the property you are about to purchase. To date, the state of Maryland does not require a formal home inspection. The more you know the better."

  • From the General Contractors section:
    "Always make sure their license is active and in good standing. Make sure that the contractor you hire is fully qualified to do the job and not working under someone else's license as an apprentice or subcontractor."

Dear Sir or Madam:

We are pleased to provide a recommendation for Mrs. Zona Teal of Long and Foster Realtors. My husband and I were in the market to buy a single family home to accommodate our growing family, when we were referred to Mrs. Teal for assistance.

Searching for a home during that time proved to be quite a challenge, even for us, who were not first time home owners. Mrs. Teal was very professional and patient throughout the entire process. She always answered our questions and kept us informed of any changes in the market.

We were very pleased with her depth of knowledge of the real estate industry and being able to balance that with our needs. She assisted us with all aspects of the buying process, including inspectors, surveys, etc.

We would highly recommend her as a real estate agent!

Sharon and John O.

To Whom It May Concern:

It is with great honor and privilege to be writing this recommendation for Mrs. Zona Teal.

Four years ago, I was in need of a realtor to assist me with renting my property in Baltimore City. The late Mr. Larry G. highly recommended Mrs. Teal and I have been so grateful for his recommendation.

During all of our communications, I have found Mrs. Teal to be a most professional business person. Mrs. Teal shows her dedication to the profession by detailing all requests for information regarding my property. She thoroughly reviews all rental documents, meets with my tenant to review rental agreements, calls me immediately if the tenant has any questions or concerns, updates me on changes in Baltimore City codes for rental property and immediately mails or emails these documents to me.

Mrs. Teal is most trustworthy, enthusiastic, has a pleasant attitude, is a caring person and has a wonderful personality. She is the type of person who I would have gravitated to because of her professionalism. I have been very impressed with Mrs. Teal's attention to detail, her ability to communicate on all levels, and her leadership skills in teaching real estate classes.

I have appreciated Mrs. Zona Teal and am looking forward to working with her throughout the renting of my property and if I should decide to sell, Mrs. Teal will be my first choice for a realtor.

Mrs. Jacqueline W.

To whom it may concern;

I would like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank the realty team of Zona Teal and Yvette Livingston for their outstanding service in handling my real estate transaction.

Their attention to detail and perseverance in taking care of every aspect of the process gave me a sense of tranquility and confidence.

Long and Foster is a great name in the business, but can only achieve a continued status of greatness with exceptional people like these professional individuals.

In an atmosphere of extreme competition, it is refreshing to know that there are still people who will provide exceptional service from beginning to end.

Again, thank you for the pleasure of being serviced by these brilliant professionals.

I would definitely recommend this team to anyone searching for exceptional representation in the real estate arena.

Orlando R.

Yvette and Zona,

I would like to take a moment to express my sincere thanks for a job well done in the quick sale of my home.

My husband and I were pleased with the educational tools provided, your patience and communication through a challenging inspection period, and your protection of our interests (confidentially) throughout the process. Everything I have listed above simply touches the surface. There are not enough words to express our gratitude. All of your hard work lead to a contract on our home within five days and a successful closing within thirty days.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend the Teal and Livingston Team to anyone who needs solid real estate assistance throughout the states of Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Thank you both for staying in touch and becoming life long friends to our family.

Warm regards,
Mrs. L. S.
