"Our experience with Ariana can be summed up in one word, extraordinary. She came through for my family in the ninth hour. She was hands on and creative. I am most certain that she is one of the best realtors in the business. It was a blessing to have been referred to her when all seemed lost. She sold our house quickly. Our house was on the market for 8 months with another realtor. The ideas had run out, until Arianna came and put forth a tremendous effort. Thanks again for all of your help!" Bowie Family
"Before we met Ariana our home buying experience was a disaster largely due to our first real estate agent and then thankfully we met Ariana. She was very professional, she made her self available and worked around our hectic schedule. She is an excellent negotiator and really looked out for our best interest. She was never just about getting a sale and she would point things out that were of concern that we would've never noticed on our own. She wanted to make sure that she found the perfect home for us. She wasn't intimidated to ask for things on our behalf and never came across as being aggressive. In fact our home did not come with a washer and dryer and she was able to get the builder to throw it in at no charge. The home buying experience can be a stressful process and she really devoted herself to us and made it go quickly and smoothly. Her knowledge of the industry is priceless. She is one of kind and I would NEVER purchase another home without her representing me." Wilburn Family
"What can you say about Ariana Loucas other than WOW! She is incredible with her knowledge of the market, her concern for clients and ability to get things done. If you are looking for an agent either on the buyer or selling side, Ariana is it. Plain and simple. I've known Ariana for awhile now and I can honestly say she is one of my favorite agents because she is such a professional inside and out. She will do whatever it takes to help you out - and it doesn't matter if it is a holiday or 9 pm on a Saturday night because she is always available. If I were buying or selling a home, that is one of the first things I would look for - how accessible is my realtor and do they communicate well? Ariana is incredibly bright, you only need to speak with her for two minutes before you realize that she is one smart lady that can negotiate contracts with ease. If I could rate her with 10 stars I would because she is a perfect ten!" Lewis
"We have been looking for our dream home for quite some time and finally found it! We were a bit reluctant since it was a short sale [having heard quite a few nightmarish stories about short sales]. However, Ariana with her education in short sales, previous mortgage back ground and a stellar agent, helped us to make the transition with ease. She was available for every question, whether pertaining to the short sale or assisting us in how the mortgage process works. When we had doubts, she would reassure us with her always positive attitude. She is a pleasure to work with, a great negotiator, always available for your needs and we would highly recommend Ariana for any of your real estate needs. She is well educated in every aspect of the market." McDonough Family
"I was searching on line to find an agent to help me sell my house in Columbia. No matter what real estate site I searched, I saw a common name and picture of Ariana Loucas. I could tell she had a lot of marketing and could get my house sold. I was correct. I was overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of showings my house got immediately. An offer was made and accepted in the very first weekend of my house being on the market! I hadn’t even found what house I wanted to buy yet. Ariana quickly got houses together for us to see. We traveled from Hyattsville to Montgomery County looking at the possibilities. I decided on a new construction Ryan home in Burtonsville. Ariana was a HUGE help in negotiating price, incentives, upgrades and closing help from the builder. I don’t have the greatest things to say about the Ryan Homes /NVR Mortgage because their group poorly handled the process and made my purchase beyond stressful. I am thankful though for Ariana because she has a mortgage background and was really able to use that knowledge to help NVR Mortgage provide answers and remedies to the issues they caused. I do love my new house and strongly suggest anyone buying a house, specifically new construction as I did this time around, to use Ariana Loucas so the builders don’t short you in areas you never knew they could. I give Ariana a 5 for both selling my home in Columbia, and for helping me buy my new house. I even asked her to list and sell my mother’s house next." Harrison
"Ariana took care of every aspect of my short sale. she had an offer within days and finished the process with my bank. She is easy to get a hold of, very knowledgeable about the area and process and I really couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend Ariana to my family, friends or a stranger on the street. I live 6 hours away from the house she sold and couldn't have dreamed how much help she would provide to get the deal done." Paul G
"I decided to work with Ariana for the short sale of my condo, and she was great to work with! This was my first experience selling a home and I had a lot of questions. Ariana was always patient with me throughout the entire process, making sure any questions or concerns I had were thoroughly addressed. She is extremely knowledgeable, and her negotiation skills helped to get my condo sold! I would highly recommend Ariana and would definitely work with her again!" S. Otu
"Ms. Loucas by far is the most proficient and intellectual realtor I have worked with. She is very thorough and responsive and always willing to serve, she has an inherent interest of showing quality in her performance and thoroughly enjoys her profession. I would not hesitate to use her again in my future home buying process and I provide my highest recommendation to any prospective clients. Ms. Loucas is what I would call the "go to realtor". Shirle
"Very knowledgeable and helpful in finding me a home in Maryland while I was stationed out of state. Was given many places to choose from and she paid attention to all of the qualities that I wanted in a home when sending me searches. She helped me become a first time home buyer and I'm happy with the results. I would highly recommend Ariana." L. Jones
"You will not find a better realtor than Ariana Loucas! In our experience finding a good realtor is a crap shoot; there are so many out there who are just going through the motions. We got lucky when we randomly found Ariana through a real estate listing website… She is very proactive, responsive, and a skilled negotiator. She truly has her clients' happiness in mind with all she does. We will use no other realtor in the DC/Maryland area." Abbott
"Buying your first home can be a daunting experience, however my concerns were assuaged by the professional and personable manner in which Ariana handled our purchase. Ariana listened to our request and procured the house of our dreams; it was obvious that she was as invested in this pursuit as we were. Many restaurants offer the same entrees, but only a select few offer experiences which necessitate return visits, while creating memories that will last a lifetime. The experience Ariana afforded my family was nothing short of amazing, and if you're in the house buying market, be sure to choose the best experience; we highly recommend Ariana." Coleman
"In my search for a house in Ellicott City, Ariana listened to what features I was looking for and filtered my selection with excellent recommendations. She is very knowledgeable in the area I was looking to live." Hwang
"We contacted Ariana to assist the short sale of our home. We selected Ariana because she promised to be our central point of contact and she upheld her promise. We didn't have to interact with our bank or other realtors at all. The only time we had to communicate with someone else was towards the end of the selling process and that was with her assistant. When we first met, she provided useful staging advice and listed the property the next day. We have a small child and pets but Ariana skillfully managed our showing requests to minimize disruption to our life and home. She answered all of our questions and when we asked questions outside of her expertise she kindly referred us to other resources that could answer our questions. During this process Ariana also worked to help us find rental housing. We've experienced and heard about several buyer horror stories about short sales but working with Ariana allowed us to gracefully sell our house. Even the closing process was managed in such a way that we left feeling hopeful. Ariana is a 'one-stop shop' realtor who has strong knowledge on both the buying and selling side of real estate transactions. We'd highly recommend her whether you're selling, buying, or planning to rent." Stewart
"We are so glad we found Ariana to help us through our first experience of buying a house! We had almost no idea what we were doing and Ariana helped us patiently through the entire process. She patiently showed us house after house in several different areas until we finally settled on one. She responded almost immediately to texts and emails and was very flexible when we would try to squeeze in yet another house into our day of showings! She had us sign things over email which was very convenient and allowed things to go very quickly. She knows a lot of people and has good contacts as far as loan officers and home inspectors and sure enough she recommended great ones to us! Everything went incredibly smoothly - she was on top of every part of our deal and was friendly and professional the entire time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house in this area and we really appreciated her helping us through this process and taking the time to explain things thoroughly. We are very happy in our first house and we have Ariana to thank for it!" Singeltary
"Ariana was very resourceful and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. She even braved a hurricane to view a house. Thankfully that was the house we ended up purchasing so it was all worth it. I would highly recommend her. She helped us find our dream house." Proctor
"Ariana is one of a kind. When I say she goes above and beyond, that is truly an understatement. Ariana met every expectation I had for a Realtor, and then created some new ones. To start out, I was leasing in Arnold, MD, with only a vague idea of where I wanted to live. All I knew was that I had been renting for almost ten years, and it was time to buy. Ariana outlined the areas she thought best while maximizing the value I could get from my budget. We took into account commute, property values, preferences, etc. While Ariana had some recommendations, she also showed me properties in any areas I wanted to see.
I will say, experience is a characteristic that is often underrated by a first time home buyer like myself. It turned out that all the areas and homes I picked were not at all what I truly wanted, and everything Ariana picked matched my specific preferences I was looking for. The moral of the story is, the less you fight Ariana, the more you are going to get what you want. I know this is easier said then done, but I have absolute confidence Ariana will earn your trust, just as she did mine.
In the end I purchased a 4/2 with sun room addition, front porch, rear deck, full wood fence, and a 1 car attached garage. It was everything I wanted. If you haven't guessed yet, this was a property I was reluctant to see, and one Ariana picked. I wanted to put an offer in within 15 minutes of seeing it. After the walk through, I knew it was the one. It was definitely an HGTV moment.
The thing buyers often don't realize, or at least I didn't, is that picking the home is such a small part of the buying process. Ariana provided me advice and guidance through the pre-approval, contract negotiation, inspection, underwriting, final mortgage process, warranty process, etc. Ariana was my central point of contact if I needed anything from anyone.
Ariana was there for me every step of the way from showing to closing... and even after that! I will almost certainly be purchasing and selling investment real estate in the future and will exclusively be using Ariana.
Another thing to keep in mind is that I went through 4 realtors before Ariana, two smaller independent realtors, and two from the large organizations (RE***, and ZIPR*****). In the end I found Ariana through Zillow reviews. I hope this review reaches someone else who is in a similar position I was just about 4 months ago. So, stop reading this and call Ariana now!P.S. By trade I am a Project Manager with a Masters in Management. At the time of writing this review, I am also a second year Law Student attending Maryland's top Law School. Ariana's understanding of business and contract law as it relates to Real Estate is top notch. It is my personal opinion that you will not receive better advice unless you hire a real estate attorney to assist you in the buying process." LICATA
"We recently relocated from Florida to Maryland for career opportunities. The move was happening very quickly and I was in desperate need of finding a place to lease. My situation was complex as my fiance and I were both in the process of selling our homes in Florida, both of us were starting new jobs in two weeks and we had three dogs that are part of our family.
I was fortunate enough to come across Ariana. I sent her an email and she responded immediately. Ariana was very thorough I her analysis of what we needed in a home and paid attention to every detail. Ariana knew my urgency in finding a home as we only had a couple of weeks to relocate. Ariana and I were in contact every day, whether she was emailing me links to properties or calling me to see how I was coming along with the move.
As we narrowed down the properties we were interested in, Ariana was kind enough to arrange to look at homes with one of our family members that lived in the area.
I could not have asked for a more professional and sincere individual. I simply could not have pulled off this relocation so efficiently without her. Her knowledge in real-estate and of the Baltimore Region is exceptional.Without hesitation I would recommend Ariana to family and friends. I will absolutely be calling Ariana to assist us in finding our next home." Marshall
"I can't believe you got me an offer our 1st day on the market!" Rosser
"I don't want ANYONE helping us but you!!! One year from now you will be the one we call again! You are the BEST at what you do!" The Pritchard Family
"My husband and I are from out of state, we needed an agent with patience and knowledge of different areas as we began to explore where we would purchase a home. Ariana is without a doubt the expert we needed. She diligently searched neighborhoods, and took us to areas all over the state, until we found our home. She is always available for questions and willing to take the time to find the answer if she didn't all ready know. Her professional yet kind demeanor will make her a pleasure to work with again and again. We are so thankful to have found her and to have had her assistance with the purchase of our home, it truly made the experience an unforgettable one." The Long Family
"Mrs. Loucas is the BEST REALTOR I have worked with. She was so patient with dealing with my family in finding the perfect home for us. She's very knowledgeable in what she does and offers a ton of advice. My home hadn't even hit the market but with her thorough marketing skills, I got a contract on my home. WOW!!! I was shocked as well as impressed. If you are looking for a supportive, kind-hearted, expert realtor, look no further because MRS. ARIANA LOUCAS is the right one! I loved working with her and will certainly work with again." The Bethea Family
"Ariana Loucas is the most professional and dependable realtor I have ever worked with. She is amazingly prompt in her replies, whether it is by email or phone. Ariana was also extremely flexible and accommodating with her schedule when I was able to look at properties. I especially liked how organized she was with her time and with paper copies of our schedule and all of the listings we would be looking at that day. I would utilize her services again any time I was looking to buy, rent, or sell in this area. She was a pleasure to work with." Stuart
"Been thinking about you and how you helped me so much but can't remember if I ever saidthank you. I miss talking to you everyday (pestering you) and just thought I would say hello and thank you again. You are wonderful at what you do and I thought you should know it, THANK YOU!" Williams Family
"Dear Ariana and puppy :)We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all of your hardwork and patience in this process. We know at times things seemed soo hectic, tense and downright strenuous, but you and your expertise made it happen. We can honestly say out of all the realtors we met and worked with, "You Da Man".....LMAO. We are soo blessed to have had a wonderful team of fighters on our side in both you and Mike, and for that we say THANK YOU !!!! From the depths of our hearts we thank you for trudging through the snow, traveling from county to county and showing us every single home on our list without a hint of exasperation. Thank you sooo much for everything. And thank you puppy for allowing her to come out and play !!!! Thank you and God Bless You Ariana with all the gifts God has in store for you both material and spiritual." Tracy Family
"Hey, I can't believe you are still working...I am so grateful that you are on my side...I am going to recommend you to anyone I hear of searching for a house. I am up playing on Facebook. I am going to post your name there as the best realtor ever!" Williams
"Ariana was wonderful to work with. Even though we had some challenges with our credit, she was able to convey our situation and was able to negotiate us a solid lease. When/if we buy our next home or lease another home, Ariana will be our agent!" Maciver
"Ariana works with even the pickiest clients (like me) to find the right deal. I was able to sell my house in 48 hours in this tough economy. The process was as pain-free as one can get when selling a home. Ariana made sure all the details were covered. She is a quality agent!!" Rosser
"Thanks Ariana for being so flexible! We really appreciate everything you've done!" Freda
"I'm advising my client to accept your buyer's offer. You're very professional thus far, and I can tell you're an agent I want to do business with." A Fellow REALTOR
"Thank you very much for taking time to thank Susana and me. That's very nice of you and we both appreciate your thoughtfulness. We would both welcome the opportunity to work with you again." Chase Mortgage Loan Officer
