I am an owner of RE/MAX Town Center and the team leader of the Sabelhaus Team. We operate 3 offices in Montgomery County, MD - Clarksburg, Germantown and Potomac. I have lived and worked in Maryland since graduating from the American University in 1991. I attended AU on a full athletic & academic scholarship and fell in love with the DC Metropolitan Area. I put my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Information Management Systems to work with a large consulting firm and then ran a local springboard & platform diving club for several years while raising my young children. I re-entered the paid workforce again in 2003 first as a loan processor, then as a loan officer and quickly made the jump to the real estate agent in 2005. In 2007 I married Joe Sabelhaus, broker/owner of RE/MAX Town Center. Together, we raised our five children who kept us busy with theater, swimming & diving, field hockey, lacrosse, band and many school events and activities. We are now empty-nesters and enjoy traveling to see our 2 army kids at their various duty stations, our PHD candidate in Texas and our local kids! I am one proud mama when it comes to our children and their many accomplishments. I try to keep up with them, however I enjoy my activities of hiking, biking, rollerblading, swimming and golfing. :-) We live in Clarksburg, Maryland and love being an integral part of our community.

Sarah Reynolds
Keller Williams
About Sarah

Ranked as one of the top teams in the DC Metro Area by the Wall Street Journal, Debbie, Sarah, and the entire Reynolds Team attribute their success to always putting their client’s needs first, above all else. This is something that many agents say, but Debbie and Sarah are on a mission to actually DO it by providing their clients several GUARANTEE programs that take the risk out of selling or buying a home. They have become passionate about providing these guarantees, and at the same time making each client feel as though they are their only client. Debbie started the business in 1988 to provide extra income for the family. What started as extra income turned into a passion. Sarah joined her mom with this passion in 2006, and not only did the mother-daughter aspect bring them together, but so did the passion for their clients. They are a true family owned business! It’s been said that buying or selling a home is one of the most stressful things that anyone will go through in their lifetime. Debbie and Sarah understand this, and are passionate about providing an experience for their clients where we take ALL the stress away! They have always hired partners to join the team that share their core values! It hasn’t always been easy to find them, but they have found that it is worth the wait to find agents and team members that have the same care and passion that they do! It’s an amazing team!

Alecia Scott
Long and Foster
About Alecia

Mission It is my firm belief that home ownership is one of the best ways for people to build a personal wealth foundation for themselves and their families. A passion for helping people achieve that dream is the driving force behind my business. Buying or selling your home is a very personal and emotional decision involving many different circumstances. A caring and compassionate, yet business savvy approach is what I bring to every transaction. Personal I am a native Washingtonian which gives me an extensive knowledge of the entire metropolitan area. I was born in the District and lived in Takoma Park during my early years. My family moved to the then sleepy town of Olney, Md in 1979. My only time outside of Maryland came during college. I obtained a Bachelors Degree from Gordon College in Wenham, MA. I happily returned to Maryland to marry my childhood sweetheart, Robert Scott, and ultimately settled in Laytonsville, a small village that is part of Gaithersburg, MD.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Gaithersburg?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Gaithersburg?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Gaithersburg to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Gaithersburg is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
