Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $725K in Brookland, Washington, DC. David Maplesden and his office have been a pleasure to work with over the past 7 years (with over 5 houses bought and sold). David understands the market and will tell you the honest news not the news brokers think you should hear. David is honest, has high integrity, knows the market, is very patient and is really a no pressure low stress way to buy a house. You never get the sales push with David that you get from other brokers. He works with you and makes sure you are on solid footing before you proceed with an offer or sale. He is very busy but always takes your call. I highly recommend him to seasoned as well as first time home buyers or sellers.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Mount Rainier, MD. My first dealings with David were almost 4 years ago as the sellers agent when I was buying a house. He was competent, polite, caring, and results driven. There were issues with the sellers, who he represented, but which he resolved in a compassionate, no nonsense way. When it came time to for me to sell this house, I knew that David was the person I would use. I interviewed no other agent. David's knowledge and experience of the area and the business and his wonderful people skills, once again, got the job done quickly and efficiently. David is smart, compassionate, extremely capable, non-judgemental, patient, caring. Do yourself a favor and lessen the stress of either buying or selling your home and work with David!

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $450K in Mount Rainier, MD. I appreciated David's wisdom in pricing my home for a quick sale. I looked late last week and other homes that went on the market at the same time had been reduced in price and still on the market. David was always quick to respond to my e-mails and phone calls. He listened to my concerns and found answers that helped me through this process. I highly recommend him for selling your home.

I highly recommend David and his staff. Unlike most agents I have met, David is not pushy and focused solely on his own agenda. He and his staff are professional, resourceful and patient. David was patient while I searched for a new home for years. When I finally found the right place, David constructed a sale strategy that worked within my timeframes and contingencies. He sold my house in a week. David and his staff's value was realized for me when he helped compare and contrast the offers and negotiated the best deal for me. Throughout the entire process, I felt like David and his staff were there for me, not the other party. He and his staff were responsive to my every call and email. David appeared to be well respected by the other agents who brought their clients through my home, so that respect went a long way during negotiations.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $625K in Hillcrest, Washington, DC. Our family has worked with the Maplesden group for over 10 years.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Silver Spring, MD. David explained my buying options,, was always willing to show me whatever houses I wanted to look at without pressure of any kind. He was extremely accessible for questions and comments, important since I was a first time home buyer. He was a patient guide through whole buying and negotiating process, which could have been very stressful. I was fortunate to have had David Maplesden as my realtor.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Silver Spring, MD. David and his team are great to work with. Everyone was very helpful and responsive, especially when I had questions or special requests. Selling a home is never a care-free process, but David made it easy and as fluid as possible. I was pleased with their professionalism and willingness to give me updates and market information all throughout the journey. In addition, David held many Open Houses and strategized with me regularly on how to make my place marketable. A job well done!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in College Park, MD. If you require an honest and responsive professional, David would be the one to speak with. He recently successfully sold a property with me that required many issues to be resolved throughout the process. He was always there, quick to accomodate and had follow through with issues that only he could resolve. His team and knowledge of the area were impressive. We were successful with a sale within 3 months of listing the property.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 in Takoma Park, MD. No one knows the Takoma Park neighborhoods and understands real estate trends there better than David Maplesden! David is an expert at knowing home values and understanding a client's needs. He used those talents and marketed my home for a very timely sale. I've worked with several realtors over the past few years and must say there's no other realtor in the area I trust like David and no sales team I could better recommend!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Adelphi, MD. David and Elliot were excellent agents to work with. David's follow up was impeccable. I interviewed three agents for the listing and David was far above the other agents in terms of truly understanding the neighborhood and property. This was a very unique property and David was able to market the property very well. He truly understood my unique needs as well. His pricing strategy was spot on. The 4-color flyer (both in English and Spanish) was very professional and appealing. Every step of the way, David's follow through was excellent--from the listing, to the sign, to the flyers, to the open house, etc. He is ALWAYS available to talk and is very responsive. We are planning on using David and Elliot for another property. Elliot coordinated the "challenging" close due to factors outside of our control and he was very professional offering excellent follow through!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Takoma Park, MD. We worked with David and his business partner Elliot Barber during the purchase of our house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Rockville, MD. My brother recommended Mr. Maplesden to me and I was skeptical because I thought can a sales person have all those great qualities my brother claims he has. Well, my brother was right, Mr. Maplesden was honest and help us sold the house in the worse months of the years for home sales (Nov-Jan). He was very responsive and he has an calm personality that helps you go through those rough times and hurdles of selling process. He has great negotiaion skills, knows the area well and has many years of experience which helped us so much because it was our first time selling a house. I highly recommend Mr. Maplesden to anyone.

Bought a home in 2013 in Mount Rainier, MD. David toured the house we ended up buying and brought us to the neighborhood of Mt. Rainier when we had been looking principally in DC. He is always available by email, text, phone and also did an excellent job helping my husband sell his condo in DC. An excellent agent- highest recommendation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Brentwood, MD. David was an excellent agent in a difficult market. He has extensive knowlege and appreciation of the many benefits of living in an area of PG County (Brentwood, Mt. Rainer, Hyattsville, North Brentwood) that few other realtors seem to possess. He helped us arrive at a listing price that was realistic. He was promptly responsive, available after hours and weekends, and worked hard to sell our house.
