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.

Andrew Goodman
Goodman, Realtors®
About Andrew

Goodman, Realtors® was started and is owned by Andrew Goodman. Prior to becoming a Realtor® in 2004, Andrew was a partner of his family's development company, KGC Development, LLC. He has been able to use his construction background to help his clients have a better understanding of the home they are looking at purchasing and what to expect with home ownership. Andrew began his career as a Realtor® with Gallagher & Co. Real Estate, Inc. based out of Bethesda, MD and continued with them for 9.5 successful years until he opened Goodman, Realtors® in 2014. With Gallagher & Co., Andrew teamed up with broker Eugene Gallagher and took on several new construction projects. They represented and sold several condominium buildings in downtown DC, multi-unit rental apartments, town-home communities in DC as well as in Baltimore city, affordable housing communities, etc. Andrew decided to take his business one step further and help not only the savvy investor and developer, but offer his support to first time home buyers as well as the every day buyer and seller. Andrew was born and raised in Montgomery County, MD with a small stint in Pennsylvania while attending The Pennsylvania State University. Andrew is a HUGE Nittany Lion fan, Redskins fan, and a diehard Washington Capitals fan. Many of his clients know that he works around the clock, but the few hours when Andrew is not working, you will most likely find him attending a Caps game. Real Estate is Andrew’s passion and his clients truly mean the world to him. Which is why his customer service cannot be match and his attention to detail is truly remarkable. Andrew knows and expects all agents at Goodman, Realtors® to give their clients the same, if not more, attention and support than they would want during their own personal real estate transaction. Andrew has built his company around the philosophies that has made him respected among his family, friends, colleagues, and clients and because of that he is proud to put his name on the front door of Goodman, Realtors®.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Olney?
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. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Olney?
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 Olney 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 Olney 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.
