Rhonda was our Knight in Shining Armor. Coming from out of state and being first time home buyers, we needed someone with an intimate knowledge of the neighborhood and someone that would set our expectations correctly. Rhonda and her team met everyone of our needs and after dealing with other agents before we went with Rhonda, I can adamantly say that I don't know what we would have done without her.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Erica O'Neill worked with me in negotiations with a third party who bought my father's house. Erica was professional and personable at all times, with great communication and follow-through, and the buyer's team did a fantastic job of renovating and staging the house for resale.
Rhonda Mortensen was incredibly smart, fast and efficient in the process of buying my first home. She took care of everything, and made it so easy. Her knowledge of the area I wanted to live in was vast and extremely a plus. She was very honest and helpful. I appreciated the efforts she placed. This all happened during the holiday season, which was very busy, yet she made herself available through all communications. I can HIGHLY recommend Rhonda and her associates.
Thank you so much!
Rhonda helped my wife and I find the perfect house! As a first-time home buyer, I was very happy with how she was always available to answer questions. She (and her team) have a ton of experience and helped us navigate the stressful experience of buying a home. Her knowledge of the local real estate market helped us find a house that fit our needs and budget.
Rhonda represented me on the sale of my home in October 2017. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding local market dynamics and exhibited the highest degree of professionalism in all aspects of her representation as a seller's agent. She is extremely practical, very savvy and creative in negotiations, and is a polite but zealous advocate. She listened and actively responded to my needs as a seller and it was a pleasure to work with her. If you are looking for a no nonsense, practical business oriented agent who will listen and respond to your needs, look no further. I recommend her without hesitation!
Rhonda and her team did a great job helping us sell our house. Rhonda is extremely knowledgeable about the inside-the-beltway Silver Spring market. Her communication style is no-nonsense and easy-going but she was diligent and persistent when it came to marketing, selling and closing on our house. Her team (Maura) also helped us to find a nice rental home nearby. I highly recommend Rhonda to anyone looking for a realtor in this unpredictable market.
I cannot recommend Rhonda and her team more highly. To begin with, she's expert at what she does, was incredibly responsive, provided great advice and guidance and knows the Silver Spring real estate market like the back of her hand. Additionally, she is just a lovely human being who is a joy to work with. She helped me and my brother sell our parent's home in Maryland even though both of us live out of state. This meant that she and Gordon Young had to be our eyes and ears looking after an empty house and more than once had to run over to let a workman in, check on an errant alarm, etc. She truly went above and beyond and did it all willingly and with a smile. Her insight and recommendation on what to do to get our house ready to put on the market were spot on and every resource such as a contractor or stager with whom she put us in contact were professional and made our lives so much easier. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in Silver Spring or thd surrounding area you MUST talk to Rhonda.

"We’ve known Rhonda for several years and value her professionalism, integrity, patience. She’s an excellent realtor and has been with us every step of the way through purchasing a new home and selling. Her advice is always spot-on, she has long-standing relationships in our community and is always there when you need her. We sing her praises and recommend her unequivocally!"

"Rhonda was recommended to us by a few friends as THE expert to work with in Silver Spring as we were buying our first single family house. Rhonda definitely knows the ins and outs of this neighborhood, and she found us the perfect house. Rhonda also sold our condo and expertly handled an extremely difficult V.A. loan process from our buyer. But, most importantly, Rhonda has become a good friend of ours in this process. She is personable, easy to talk to, professional, and she has a great sense of humor. She genuinely cares for her clients, and it's no surprise that many of us end up staying in touch with her long after the buying and selling process is done. She is the first person I recommend when someone is looking for a real estate agent in the area. She is simply the best!"

"I truly enjoyed working with the HelpMeRhondaRealEstate Team. Both Rhonda and Gordon were easily accessible, listened to our needs in terms of selling our old home and purchasing the new one. Rhonda knows this area better than any realtor I've worked with. She's also honest, fun to work with and goes above and beyond in terms of closing the sale. If you're looking for a local realtor, give her a call. You will not be disappointed."

"Rhonda and her team were great to work with through the process of selling our home. Rhonda is very knowledgeable about our neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods. I was very anxious about the whole process as we had heard horror stories about realtors and the home selling process, but Rhonda and her team were great communicators. We felt like they had our best interest at heart. She never pushed us to lower the price, even after the house was on the market for a few weeks. Rhonda offered up suggestions and went above and beyond to advertise our home. I have recommended her to local friends and will continue to do so!"
- Kelly Jackson
"I have worked with Rhonda to buy and sell two homes. She took the time to understand my needs, provided expert advice, and shared her deep understanding of the local real estate market. She explained every step of the process and made certain that I was satisfied. Her customer service is fabulous and she is fun to work with! Rhonda and the HelpMeRhonda Team provide the expert knowledge, insight, and guidance that buyers and sellers need to navigate the real estate process."

"We were extremely pleased with our experience working with Rhonda to sell our home. Rhonda was with us every step of the way, from planning the timing of putting our house on the market, assisting with advice on preparing our home for sale, and most importantly, bringing us qualified buyers when the house was on the market. Rhonda is extremely responsive and she brings a lot of value to the table with her experience in the local area, and her vast list of contacts. Plus she is professional but personable: great to work with. I recommend her highly and without reservation!"
"Rhonda was very helpful in a very complex sale of my home in Silver Spring. She is professional and trusted adviser in every respect. Happy to be reference in any way I can support her with other potential sellers."
"Rhonda was amazing at helping us negotiate selling our house and buying a bigger house in our neighborhood. She knows the market like the back of her hand, didn't promise us anything she couldn't deliver, and was great to work with. We needed a certain price, which she got for us, and she helped us stay patient to get the buyer we needed, all while also balancing our contract to buy another house contingent on the sale of our current one. Rhonda was a great resource for understanding the process, always available when we had questions, and honest with us every step of the way. I would recommend her to anyone!"
"Rhonda worked with us for over a year to make sure we found the right house for our family and to sell our previous home for top dollar. Rhonda was kind, responsive and went beyond what she needed to do to ensure a smooth transition between our homes."
-Jason & Julie Peller
"Rhonda guided me through what had to be an extremely expedient home sale experience due to a relocation across the country. I basically left my home in her hands while I headed West, and she took charge of several home improvements and staging. She even handled payment of service providers once the home sold. Despite challenging winter conditions, she was able to sell my home rapidly, and kept me abreast of proceedings on an almost daily basis at certain stages of the process. I did not have to return to the area for closing given Rhonda was "helping me" so diligently. In my situation, she truly lived up to her motto - "Help Me Rhonda". I highly recommend her."

"I give the highest marks to Rhonda Mortensen and the HelpMeRhondaRealEstate team. The home that was being sold belonged to my late mother and was being sold out of her trust. The house is located in Silver Spring, Maryland. I am the trustee and I live in San Francisco, California. Rhonda and her team took the lead in getting the house ready for sale, which was a big relief for me. We received an offer at the asking price in a short period of time. It was a very clean offer and the sale closed within two weeks from receipt of the offer. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I can’t say enough good things about my experience. Finally, Rhonda and all her people are very professional and, importantly, very nice. I give them my unqualified recommendation."

"Catherine Soffronoff recently helped me purchase a home. Her steady, professional guidance every step of the way was comforting. Catherine and her team kept me informed and communicated with me beyond my expectations. If you are looking to buy, rent, or sell a property you won't be disappointed with Catherine!"
- Jennifer Brennan
"My husband and I worked with Gordon to rent our current house three years ago; when we decided to start looking to buy, we immediately reached out to Gordon again. Because we were taking an unhurried approach to our search, we wanted to work with someone who would be responsive and professional, but also flexible. This is where Gordon excels.For any given week, Gordon wouldn't know if we would want to see zero houses or three, but as soon as we reached out with a request or question, he would respond and follow up immediately. We felt that we could rely on Gordon for expertise about the process as well as the geographical area. We had a great experience working with him. Thanks to everyone on the team!"
