At end of every transaction, we don’t hound people for referrals; we ask them to offer their thoughts on working with us while considering one main question: did we abide by our core values?

While mostly all of our clients have become our friends along the way, we’re extra proud of the fact we didn’t know the overwhelming majority of these folks before they found us.

Below is just some of the feedback we’ve received.

We were fortunate to stumble upon The Rockville Real Estate Exchange for our first home buying experience. We worked with Andy who helped explain, in a clear and concise style, the process involved from start to finish.It’s common to hear how stressed people are when buying a home, especially their first. So, going into it, we expected it to be a pretty grueling experience. However, to be honest, it really didn’t seem that stressful or challenging and it didn’t take nearly as long as I expected for us to find our first home (which we LOVE). We credit this positive experience to Andy and his approach.Also worth noting, as first time homebuyers, naturally we had A LOT of questions throughout the process. Andy was very patient with the questions and answered everything in a clear way. We really appreciated that he was always there to answer questions along the way and that he gave answers in a direct and clear style.My favorite part of working with Andy is he is direct and honest. He doesn’t have a salesman demeanor where he just tells you what you want to hear and talks a lot about nothing nor does he try to push you/rush you into anything. He tells you his opinion/advice and you can tell it is genuine and not just to make a sale. He is easy to talk to, relatable, genuine and transparent.We highly recommend Andy and know you will have a great experience working with the Rockville Real Estate Exchange. Thanks, Andy!!

I've been a fan of Andy for many years.I consume his online content & always go to him for real estate advice.In my opinion, very few real estate agents can match the level of local expertise Andy provides. I know this at first hand because I've seen the amount of time and dedication he has invested in building such a revolutionary local directory. Truly fascinating.Andy is transparent, honest, genuine & a master of his profession.I believe he's the kind of person that's always looking to deliver value. Someone who wants to build a long term relationship with a client instead of being transactional.

I worked with Andy and he was fantastic. As a first-time home buyer, the process of searching for a home can be overwhelming, but he helped to explain difficult concepts and support us in all the ways we needed. It was also great to work with him because he’s extremely responsive to messages. All of our questions were promptly answered. He was extremely helpful during the negotiation process, and we came out ahead because of it. At the end of the day, we just wanted an agent we could trust, who had our best interest in mind, and who understood the real estate market. Andy hit the nail on the head.

We have had the privilege of working with Andy three times and cannot sing his praises highly enough. We first met Andy when we were moving to Maryland from out of state on very short notice five years ago. We stumbled on Andy's website and he turned out to be the perfect person to help us quickly find a rental that met all our needs. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and saved us from driving aimlessly around Rockville and Bethesda trying to Google apartment buildings that we passed. Once we found Andy, he honed in on what we needed (including tackling the challenge of finding a dog-friendly rental that was in our budget and wasn't a dump), recommended neighborhoods to focus on, and made our search much more efficient, with great results. Andy gave that rental search the same care and attention that he most recently gave to helping us buy our forever home.When our family grew and we were ready to move from renting a condo to renting a townhouse, we naturally turned to Andy again for his expertise. Again Andy made what could have been an otherwise stressful process seamless for us, helping us find a townhouse to rent in Derwood that fit our growing family's needs and modest budget.Over the next few years, Andy helped educate us about the home buying process and helped us map out our plan to be ready to buy a few years down the road. We were pretty clueless and had some outdated assumptions about what we needed to buy a home. Andy was patient and informative, and the time he spent explaining things to us made us much more confident when we were ready to start seriously looking.When we were finally ready to buy, of course we were launching our house search in the middle of a pandemic and an incredibly competitive market. Andy expertly guided us through the process, helping us craft aggressive offers on places we liked and move quickly without letting us do anything stupid. His analysis of recent sales in the immediate vicinity of places we liked helped us decide what we were willing to offer to be competitive without overpaying. Andy cautioned us to be patient and stay focused on the key things we wanted/needed in a home, and doing so paid off. He helped us find a move-in ready single family home on a townhouse budget that exceeded all of our expectations.What truly stands out about Andy is how much he genuinely cares about the people he is working with. We never felt pressured and instead always felt completely supported throughout this process. We knew we could trust him to have our best interests at heart. Andy's also great company while house hunting, and we should know since we've done it three times with him.😀Lastly, Andy referred us to a lender, home inspector, and title company, all of whom were equally top-notch and trustworthy, helping to make this experience a smooth one for us. For anyone who wants a smart, caring, down-to-earth realtor, we cannot recommend Andy enough. He is the absolute best.

I came across a Rockville Real Estate Exchange ad in a neighborhood list serve, so I reached out to learn more. Although I was still 4 months away from moving, Andy and Katie responded promptly to my inquiry and even offered weekend hours to talk - amazing! After a thorough conversion about my household needs for my next place (I have very specific needs for accommodations in a home), I ended the call with a plan for action at the right time. I was also activated on an email list showing places that were coming available right now, so I'd get an idea of what might be out there for me when the time was right. Their knowledge of Rockville, the neighborhoods, future housing projects and shopping centers, upcoming road construction activity all helped inform me about where I wanted to look for my next home. I would start with contacting them FIRST, whether renting or buying, if you're looking in Rockville exclusively. They really are "know-it-alls" -- in the best way!!

Andy was on it from the moment i told him that I'm thinking of purchasing a condo. He explained to me in detail why should or shouldn't I buy it. Once we agreed to proceed he was being there for me every step of the way. He was helpful, patient with me, even funny at moments so ..... It was easy. Andy is the best!

Andy Detweiler, Founder and Licensed Broker of The Rockville Real Estate Exchange, was our listing agent and was able to sell our house in very smooth process and at a good price. We had the best experience with Andy and can't say enough good things about Andy. Andy has provided really candid and practical suggestions before listing so that we can get the house ready for market. In addition, Andy’s suggestions and analysis came from solid research and experience which made them very trustworthy. We were a first-time seller and Andy was truly knowledgeable and extremely patient when helping us navigate the entire process from start to finish. He was always available whenever we had questions. Andy has done a great job in keeping us posted on every single update and he was also in great communication with all the parties in the process. There was never a moment that we were not sure what to do or what’s next. Andy did a great job in showing our house. We have received reviews from visitors and their agents who came to the open house saying that they appreciated Andy’s professional service and would like to work with him. Andy is a great negotiator and exactly knows when to negotiate and how to negotiate to the best of your interest. You will be in good hands and sit back and relax if you have Andy as your realtor. He is the best.

Thank you Andy Detweiler and The Rockville Real Estate ExchangeWE Can't say enough about the professionalism, personal attention to detail and asking us the "right questions" all through our search for our new Home in Maryland. After living in Vermont for 25 years, we came to with some pretty specific ideas of what we desired in a home and community. We wanted to be close to work and yet be able to go home to a more rural setting close to what we left in VermontAndy and his sales team spent a lot of time with us during the last several months. They helped us to really commit to what we wanted at a price we could afford, and then finding the right home to meet our wants/needs.Well I can say today, that time spent and questions answered we have found our perfect new home here in Maryland.This will truly be a place we will grow to Love.Thanks to You Andy,Your Sales Team & The Rockville Real Estate Exchange.

I met Andy at an open house years ago and was already impressed with his kind approach and trying to sell the house to me. We kept in touch and when the moment came for me to buy a house, Andy was there all along. He provided clear guidance, based always on data (as I like :)), and he was very patient with all my questions. What I appreciated the most is that he really spent time getting to know my and ensuring he provides his professional advise and competency based solely on my wishes and needs. Andy is detailed oriented and always makes time for you. I am SO grateful that I met Andy and was able to close with him on a perfect house (that many more actually wanted...). I liked Andy so much that I hired him again to sell a townhouse. And again I was not disappointed...the house sold even before the first open house...this is how good he is. THANK YOU Andy for being and for doing such a great job as a realtor. You are now family to me 🙂

I highly recommend Andy Detweiler and The Rockville Real Estate Exchange! This was my first time both selling and buying a home and I was overwhelmed by the idea of of such a daunting task, so I knew I had to pick an agent who could walk me through every part of the process and answer all my questions (and I warned him I ask a lot of questions!). Andy was extremely patient, detail oriented and answered everything, and he was always reachable via phone, text or email. Thanks to his research and expertise, we were able to sell my home immediately, and then we moved on to finding a new home. I was nervous about making the wrong decision or settling for something due to time constraints, but Andy reassured me constantly that everything would work out and if it was meant to happen, it would happen. He urged me to trust my gut and to figure out what was important to me by writing down my list of "must have" items. Through that process of elimination, I was able to concentrate my search on a specific area and type of home. And just when I was thinking I wouldn't find anything before the end of the year, a home went on the market and we moved quickly to buy it! Andy was a joy to work with and he not only listened to my questions and concerns, but he also made sure to work with and listen to my family members, which I greatly appreciated. Thank you again for all your help!

I have been in mortgage lending for almost 15 years. I've seen every type of client and have dealt with every type of real estate agent along the way. Due to this experience, I can definitively state, that no client needs the same things and no agent provides everything. I can also tell you that the vast majority of agents that operate in the real estate industry, are mediocre at best. Truth be told, many agents simply don't hold any value proposition and can be considered a commodity that is easily replaced or serves no real purpose.Then there are the rare breed of agents like Andy.Since I've met Andy, he's always shown himself to think differently and not one to "follow the crowd". He is always looking for ways to innovate and improve his processes and he has shown that he does for his client's best interests. His goal is simply to identify what is outdated or broken and to make them better This is a rare thing.Andy has taken the time to hone in on what he feels will serve his clients and he has mastered that. He spends time on gathering information and passing it along so that his clients can make informed decisions, rather than calculating how much commission he's going to make and "selling" his clients into a transaction.If you're looking for something different and refreshing when it comes to real estate, look no further.In my business, reputation is everything and I tend to not recommend many people as they don't live up to the standards I hold. With that said, I highly recommend you take a moment to give him a call and find out why so many people choose to work with him, but also why I'm willing to recommend that you do as well.

It was the greatest pleasure working with Andy and the Rockville Real Estate Exchange as I searched for and bought my condo in Montgomery county. Andy is very well-educated in all aspects of real-estate, both in general and in the nuances of the local market. He obviously loves his job, and was helpful to me from the beginning of the process, before I had secured financing or knew where to look, to the end, following up after my move to make sure everything went smoothly. Andy was always immediately responsive to any questions or concerns I had, and treated everyone in the process with complete respect. I would certainly not hesitate to contact him again with any real estate needs in the future, or to recommend him him to any friends or family planning to buy or sell in the local area.

I am so grateful that I found Andy Detweiler, founder of the Rockville Real Estate Exchange! I purchased a condominium with Andy as my broker in August 2019. From our first meeting, Andy offered sage advice and educational information to help me with the hundreds of decisions that go into choosing a home.He is truly a full-service real estate professional who understands the market and real estate trends in and around Rockville. He is dependable and responsible. He guided me along each step of the process and made it as easy as possible for me.I was probably most impressed and grateful for his professional values, integrity, and honesty. I felt very comfortable placing my trust in him to handle all aspects of my real estate purchase.Here's an illustration of his level of service -- after my sale was complete, I made my first trip to my new home to drop off some supplies before the move. I inserted the key to unlock the door and turned the deadbolt, but could not budge the door. I wrestled with it for awhile, and then called Andy. He was there within 10 minutes and found the trick to getting the lock open. He was happy to help! :-)If you work with Andy, you will not be disappointed!!

I am very happy with the services provided by Andy and the staff of the Rockville Real Estate Exchange.Every interaction I had with Andy was not only pleasant but informative. Andy prides himself in ‘Digging into the numbers”, this allowed him to work with me by providing me with fact based information, allowing me to take the emotion out of the house selling process. Andy thoroughly researched the market where I was listing my home finding the best comps available for my unique home.Andy set appropriate expectations and was ALWAYS HONEST and straight forward. Andy was always available to go over questions and concerns and periodic bursts of anxiety in a calm relaxed manner. I would totally recommend him to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home.

We worked with in Andy in 2018 and we had an excellent experience. We were first time homebuyers looking for either a TH or SFH. We initially attended a homebuying information session hosted by Andy, and immediately could sense he is very professional.We asked Andy to be our buyer's agent because we knew we could trust him to be thorough and get the details on offer(s) correct. House hunting with Andy was truly enjoyable, and I never felt pressured. Andy truly wanted us to find a home that was right for our needs. When we were worried about finding something in time with the low inventory, Andy had our backs and would have helped us find a short-term rental. Then, even when I had to be on a work trip during the escrow period and couldn't check in constantly, I was confident Andy was doing everything that needed done on our behalf; he stayed in communication with us and accommodated my schedule when necessary. Finally, we needed Andy's expertise and advice after we closed, too, and he was always there for us. I just can't say enough good things about this professional and our great experience...HIGHLY RECOMMEND Andrew Detweiler and The Rockville Real Estate Exchange!

Five Stars don't do justice to our recommendation that others retain Andy Detweiler and The Rockville Real Estate Exchange to sell their home. Andy stepped into a difficult situation in which our house of 30 years had barely moved. With extraordinary and persistent attention to our needs, frank advice (not always what you want to hear but what you need to hear), total preparation, personally manning our open houses, and a great sense of humor (we even learned to disregard his passion for the Eagles!), the house sold and we've moved on to the next phase of our lives in peace. We adore Andy's family and look forward to attending his next client appreciation party.

I am a home inspector so I work with A LOT of realtors on a daily basis. I decided to go with Andy after seeing how well he treated his clients and how much he cared about protecting them. As a home inspector, I was very picky with the type of house that I wanted to buy and it needed to check all the boxes that I was looking for. Andy could not have found a more perfect house for me. Thanks to his advice, we beat out three other offers without even having to go above what I wanted to pay and we got an incredible deal on the house. I could not be happier. Thanks Andy!

We had special requirements, such as a condo that would accept large dogs. With Andy's help, we were able to identify a condo that met our needs, and close the purchase within a few weeks. It was also clear to us that Andy conducts his business with honesty and integrity. I highly recommend his services.

He originally helped my wife & I find a rental apartment when we moved to the Rockville area 2 years ago and then helped us find our current home which we absolutely love. Throughout the process, Andy was extremely patient and helpful in providing us information in a non-sales manner which was greatly appreciated. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area, but more importantly, he's a great person to work with as he truly cares about his clients.

Trusting Andy to sell my home and find me a new one at the same time - without incorporating a lengthy rent-back period or apartment rental in-between - proved to be one of the best decisions I've ever made.Andy is extremely knowledgeable on the Rockshire neighborhood and understands the market; he's smart and quick thinking.At the same time he is very thorough, a strong negotiator, fantastic communicator, endlessly patient, and always available.Best of all, he takes care of all your worries so you can sleep well at night while knowing you have a strong professional in your corner - someone you can completely rely on. Highly recommended.
