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.

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 Laurel?
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 Laurel?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

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 Laurel 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.
