Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $400K in Adelphi, MD.
Primary point of contact: Elliot Barber
Elliot guided us through the purchase of our first home in a very aggressive market, where houses would go under contract in only a couple days. He worked all sorts of hours showing us houses and responding to our questions. In the end, his advice on how to write a competitive contract, and the hard work his closing team did with my lending team, got us our PERFECT house in a multiple-bid situation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in College Park, MD.
Primary point of contact: Elliot Barber
We worked with Elliot to buy a house in or around College Park in 2015. Housie hunting with him was easy going and insightful. He was always understanding when we had our two kids in tow! Eventually, we found a house at a great price, great location, and great condition in College Park. Elliot helped us to move quickly and make a competitive offer among many interested buyers and we got the house and are very happy. Elliot was very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. He helped us to find a lender and other essential third parties, all of which were great. We are very pleased with our experience and would definitely recommend David's team to others.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.
Primary point of contact: Elliot Barber
I had a great experience with The Maplesden Group for the purchase of our first house. We worked with Elliot Barber who provided us amazing service - answering all questions, happily showing us multiple houses, and explaining the market and process thoroughly. He walked us through the entire process, step-by-step, and we always felt comfortable and knowledgeable which makes a very daunting process very accessible. Highly recommended.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $600K in Sixteenth Street Heights, Washington, DC.
Primary point of contact: Elliot Barber
My wife and I used The Maplesden Group for our first home purchase and we are completely satisfied. Their customer service is top-notch. We worked with Elliot Barber, and he responded promptly to questions no matter how trivial, and guided us through the home-buying process step-by-step. Not only did he help with the contract, but he got us a great deal, found an excellent title company, and even gave us a nice gift once we finally closed on the house. I would recommend their services - especially Elliot - to anyone.

Bought a home in 2015 in Carole Highlands, Takoma Park, MD 20912.
Primary point of contact: Elliot Barber
We were referred to the Maplesden Group by a family member who has known David Maplesden for years. We started out at the Long and Foster offices in Takoma Park--the neighborhood we wanted to look in. From our first meeting, we knew that David and Elliot would be a good fit. We spent an hour going through our wants and needs for our ideal home, and then ended with a discussion of viable properties, micro-neighborhoods we might want to consider, and our timeline for purchasing a home. Elliot and David have worked in DC and Maryland for years and their knowledge of the area and even smaller neighborhoods is second to none.
In the DMV area, it's hard not to think the odds are stacked against first time homebuyers. For those just starting out, particularly those of us who have spent years choking down outrageous rents, homeownership often seems like a dream come true--assuming you can find something that's affordable, in a good location, etc. etc. With David and Elliot, we not only found our ideal first home at a reasonable price, but we did it in less than 60 days from start to finish.
What struck us most about David and Elliot was their willingness to give honest advice throughout the home-buying process. Whenever we met to discuss our needs and wants in a first home, or whenever we found a listing that we thought looked promising, they were able to tell us when they thought it looked like good fit to pursue, as well as when there were red flags (such as a noisy street or poor construction). In fact, the townhouse we decided on was not something we had initially envisioned, but it turned out to be exactly what we wanted once we saw it, and we couldn't be happier with our decision. As we worked primarily with Elliot, we can attest that he was always patient despite our millions of questions, and always prompt in his responses. He took us step by step through the whole process, from our initial meeting to our closing date. We never once felt overwhelmed or pressured, only that we were in good hands with people who had our best interests at heart. It was a great learning opportunity and experience for us, and we couldn't recommend David and Elliot highly enough. Not to mention we're happily moved in only two months after we started looking!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Silver Spring, MD.
Primary point of contact: Elliot Barber
We worked with David and with Elliot Barber. These people were top notch. They meticulously guided us every step of the way in preparing the house for sale and in executing the deal. Elliot was very savvy, articulate and motivated to please us as sellers. Elliot is about getting it done right. We highly recommend Elliot and the Maplesden group.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Takoma Park, MD. We can't recommend Elliot and David enough. They helped us buy our house in Takoma Park at a great price, provided excellent (and free!) advice on renting it out, and guided us through a successful and stress-free sale. So, we've seen their work from all angles and were continually impressed. We worked primarily with Elliot, and we feel so fortunate to have found him. He is a straight-shooter, but he is also caring and kind. He will fight for the best deal, but is always courteous and respectful. He makes sure everything happens on time and has a clear vision on how to best guide home purchases and sales. He gave frank and strategic advice on home improvement issues, both at the buying and selling stages. He checked-in with us periodically after our purchase and even offered to lend a hand with repairs or help with finding reliable contractors. Elliot is incredibly prompt--so much so that I hesitated to email him on the weekends because I knew he would likely reply or call back within minutes, interrupting whatever little down time he has. I could go on, but the last thing I'll say is that he and David have a remarkable depth of knowledge, especially in Takoma Park, and this knowledge leads to better deals. Through buying and selling, we had 100% confidence in them, and our confidence was rewarded. I doubt we'll find agents like them again. Use the Maplesden Group.

Bought a home in 2014 in Montgomery Knolls, Silver Spring, MD 20901. I wanted a quick, stress free home-shopping and home-buying experience. Elliot and the Maplesden Group handled the shopping, in-house docs, and external resources and referrals quickly and efficiently. The process, from viewing to closing, was 35 days. I couldn't possibly be more pleased!

Bought a home in 2014. We worked with Elliot (and David) throughout the purchase of our home. Elliot was very knowledgeable of the neighborhood (Takoma Park) and ready to help at all turns along the way. I would recommend Elliot and David to anyone looking for a home in Takoma Park or lower Silver Spring.
