Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $400K in Adelphi, MD.Primary point of contact: Elliot BarberElliot 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 BarberWe 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.

David is an Outstanding Realtor ! He sold a 4 unit apartment building for me and overcame many obstacles along the way. He worked with tenants and buyers tirelessly until Settlement was achieved. David is a true professional and I highly recommend him.

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!

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.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2015 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.Primary point of contact: Elliot BarberI 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 BarberMy 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 BarberWe 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!
