Michael and Janet Persson, dated May 4, 2018 ~ Carol was pleasant to work with, no pressure. She is also extremely knowledgeable about the area and keeps her client’s best interests at the forefront! She works hard for you!
Patti & Gary Costenbader, dated April 25, 2018 ~ Carol was very professional and personable. She always responded to us in a very timely manner.
Mike and Ami Cohn, dated April 24, 2018 ~ Carol is knowledgeable and experienced realtor and her professionalism shows with everything she does. She had all aspects of the selling process covered, from the pre-inspection, fixing, listing to negotiations stages. Everything went super smoothly. Working with her has been a pleasure! We sold the house for FULL price in less than a month!
Sabrina Hecht and John Turner, dated March 30, 2018 ~ Excellent professional service. Thank you very much.
JR & Lorie Brown, dated March 27, 2018 ~ Carol is an outstanding agent and dedicated to her clients. We recommended her to our daughter who is now seeking a home to buy in the area. She got to know us quickly and listened carefully to our desires and needs. She asked thoughtful questions to understand our requests and helped us explore other ideas. Our needs were very specific and she helped us identify a great lot, builder and banker. Our dream home will be finished soon and Carol will always be welcome in our home.
Sid and Jackie Lawrence, dated March 16, 2018 ~ Whether you are a first time home buyer/seller, or an experienced buyer/seller, Carol Choporis and her team can be relied on to ensure every step of the process is understood and handled. The support and service we received from her and her team was top notch! Her recommendations, knowledge of the area and market, and steadfast determination were instrumental in the timely sale of our home. I would recommend her services to anyone in the real estate market, especially if they are looking for assistance in making the buyer/selling process an easy one!
Kevin and Kim Forney, dated March 15, 2018 ~ The team was very knowledgeable with St. Mary’s County real estate. Professionalism, individual attention, personal caring, and follow thru were some of the preeminent characteristics that were evident and practiced by Carol Choporis and Cindy Crispell and their team! They made me feel like family, like my home was their home. They helped me on so many different emotional levels that cannot be described by a survey. Not only did the team help us through the entire staging and selling of our home, they put us in contact with a C21 agent in the new area that we were moving to. There was so much to do buying and selling a house. CENTURY 21 took care of all of it for us! The Choporis Crispell team took care of all the details in selling our home. They communicated frequently with us and made the sell seem easy. I would and have recommended them on Facebook and to all my friends.
Gary and Robin Willis, dated March 9, 2018 ~ we had some family trauma which put us in a difficult financial situation. We were put in a situation we had to sell the house or go to foreclosure. Carol was so sensitive to what happened to us. Carol was so sympathetic to our situation but she was also realistic and practical. We knew where we stood with her, like it or not. It was my belief that she felt our pain during this difficult time. I will never forget her heartfelt responses while our house was on the market. Even at the closing table when I thought it was going to be a stressful encounter and I believe it’s because of Carol’s positive and sunny personality. You don’t just want Carol to be your agent, you also want her to be your friend.
Butch and Ellen Bailey, dated March 6, 2018 ~ This was our first experience with this type of situation and my husband was battling multiple health issues during this time. Carol and her team were outstanding! They were very supportive of our schedules with doctors’ visits and went above and beyond to take care of any and all issues with the mortgage company as they arose to keep our stress at a minimum.
Kal and Michele Leikach, dated March 4, 2018 ~ We normally don’t write reviews. We are making an exception in this case because we have rarely encountered professionalism at this level. From initial contact (1/15/18) to settlement on our house (2/26/18), Carol, Cindy, and Tina were amazing. The communication was constant, thorough, and empathetic. Even though we received an acceptable offer quickly, we already knew that even if that transaction had not worked out, we were with the right team to handle the sale of our home. Carol Choporis, Cindy Crispell, and Tina Henderson are the very best realtor team we have ever worked with (and we’ve bought and sold many homes in 40+ years). Our endorsement is genuine and are so grateful to them for making this experience as stress free as selling a home can be. We would (and will) recommend them to everyone we know.
John and Dawn Gatton, dated February 6, 2018 ~ This team was to me a dream come true. They were all very knowledgeable and helpful through the whole process. They were very meticulous and they were exceptional when it came to attention to detail. I would strongly recommend this team to anyone. What a joy to work with!
Mark & Dana Cullison, dated February 6, 2018 ~ Always a pleasure to work with Carol and her team. Carol is so professional and a joy to work with. Carol has an excellent team especially Tina, I don’t know what we would do with out her looking out for us. Carol and her team make this process so easy.
Brittany Gross, dated January 8, 2018 ~ I have nothing but positive feedback for Cindy and Carol…great agents, who were supportive from the very beginning right through the end (closing). I couldn’t have asked to be represented in any other way or by anyone else. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends because when I first began this process, I had an idea what I was interested in and being a first time homebuyer I did not know what to expect; however, they made the process as seamless as possible. Thank you!
Chris and Angie Kalnasy, dated January 4, 2018 ~ I had particular needs in finding a new home that it needed to be wheelchair accessible for my wife. The Choporis Crispell Team was so patient with me finding the perfect home for us. They knew we couldn’t just ‘settle’ for a home and also wanted something that was move in ready and did not need a lot of renovations up front. I could not recommend this team to enough people.
Sharon Scott, dated December 11, 2017 ~ Carol and her team were a pleasure to work with. Her suggestions and online marketing were spot on, and we could not have been more pleased with how the entire sale was completed. Thanks go out to Carol and her entire team!
Davie and Suk Hottle, dated November 7, 2017 ~ Cindy’s team was referred to us by a good friend. When we met with her we knew there was no need to look any further. Great team. I could reach out to any team member at any point in time and always received timely responses. We tried FSBO for seven weeks with no offers. Cindy’s team had an offer for full price within one day of posting. Thirty days later we closed on the house, selling to the family that made the first offer. I will never fool around with FSBO again. Truly professional Team.
Will and Shelly Fortune, dated November 4, 2017 ~ Knowledge of the neighborhood and property was very important to us. We felt our team was well informed to help us make the best decisions. Selling a property, particularly when living at a distance, is very stressful. Carol dealt with all of our questions, stress and anxieties with the utmost professionalism. She was a great listener and provided insightful and thoughtful feedback.
Sabrina Hecht, dated October 31, 2017 ~ Thanks so much for all the diligence and hard work in selling my home.
Patricia Bray, dated October 12, 2017 ~ Carol consistently exceeded expectations. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and conscientious. I couldn’t be happier. Carol represents the gold standard in Realty.
Gary and Jaime McQuay, dated October 15, 2107 ~ We learned of Carol through a friend who could not say enough positive things about her and her team. Based on such positive and enthusiastic feedback, we reached out to Carol to discuss the selling of our home and our condo and the purchase of a new home. She contacted me and met with us soon thereafter. And after that initial meeting with her, my wife and I knew immediately that she was the Realtor for us and that we’d be in great hands. And I must mention, while we were working with Carol, just how many friends and coworkers of ours had heard of Carol and referred to her as being “one of the best” Realtors in the area – this was extremely comforting and reassuring to both of us. During the process, Carol and her team (Tina) provided my wife and I with unbelievable guidance and extremely helpful and professional recommendations during the selling of our home and condo and the purchase of our newly built home. Not only did she find buyers for both of our properties very quickly, she did so without having to even list our properties or hold any open houses. And what’s most impressive is that she was able to secure for us our top-end asking price for each! As for the purchase of our new home, she worked tirelessly with us by accompanying us on numerous open houses and showing us home after home after home with a level of enthusiasm that sometimes even surpassed our own. She made the home shopping experience fun and exciting and worth every bit of time we spent searching for that new perfect home. We also can’t say enough about Carol’s professionalism, friendliness, and accessibility. She was there for us whenever we needed – including evenings and weekends – and was accessible via phone, email and text. And, her ability to communicate critical things to us in a way that was easy to comprehend greatly facilitated our decision-making and made this a stress-free and enjoyable and rewarding experience – this was very important to us since neither my wife nor I were very familiar with the intricate details of buying or selling property. And to note, this wasn’t the first time my wife and I purchased property as we both separately bought properties in the past through other local Realtors. After working with Carol and her team for this recent home/condo sale and new home purchase and looking back at our individual past experiences with other Realtors, we’ve come to realize just how important it is to have a seasoned, experienced, professional Realtor working for you when buying a house. Although our first home purchases with these former local Realtors were “acceptable”, our recent experience with Carol made us realize that Realtors are not all the same and that Carol and her team are truly on another level of performance and experience that I feel would be hard to surpass by any other Realtor. While the former Realtors “met” our expectations, Carol and her team far exceeded our expectations. It was truly a 5-star experience. If and when we have to do this again, we would without a doubt use Carol and her team again.
David and Sheryl Dunaway, dated Sept. 17, 2017 ~ Carol and her team were simply exceptional. They knew the market, staged the house beautifully, created an excellent marketing campaign and had real interest in weeks. I will buy and sell every house I’m involved with using Carol and her team.
Sharon and Bill Noonan, dated Sept. 1, 2017 ~ I told Carol 18 years ago (when she sold my house in Leonardtown) that if I moved again I would be sure to call her. And I did! But Cindy is as wonderful and caring as Carol is. So I will give a sterling report on the whole team because ALL of you deserve the praise and credit. Attitude and caring are of utmost importance when dealing with the public and you guys are the best! Bill and I were glad to work with all of you and appreciate all you did for us.
Patty Bray, dated August 25, 2017 ~ Carol Kalmus-Choporis is impressively knowledgeable and highly professional, yet friendly and attentive. She provided practical guidance on preparation for listing the home and created very effective advertising. There were 2 serious offers in less than two weeks.
Tim and Gwen Thomas, dated August 3, 2017 ~ Carolyn Kalmus-Choporis was well seasoned and not shaken by the unprofessional behavior of the seller. I would recommend her because she maintains a cool demeanor and is always professional.
George and Christa Franz, dated July 26, 2017 ~ I had worked with Carol and her team in the past and was very pleased, so I was a natural return customer. They did an outstanding job navigating challenges in the purchase of our home this time around. The selling agent was not local, which resulted in a number of difficulties working through repairs to the house before closing. Carol went above and beyond to make sure everything was resolved in order to meet our closing date and was the level head through a stressful buying experience due to the complications on the seller side. We were grateful to have her and her team representing us. Carol and her team are responsive, professional, and will listen to your needs, but are also honest and clear in their communications regarding your expectations and the realities of the market and your purchase. We received excellent guidance right in line with achieving our goals. I could not provide any higher recommendation than to say if I needed to buy or sell a house in Southern Maryland I would only make one phone call – to the Choporis Crispell Team.
Carl and Nancy Reiber, dated July 8, 2107 ~ There is no better realtor in America than Carol. She was balanced, knew the market, and kept me ‘in the know’ that allowed us to make the best decision for our family.
Alex Warren and Morgan Rowland, dated June 30, 2017 ~ Carol and the rest of the team were a pleasure to work with. The Choporis Crispell team came highly recommended by friends and colleagues alike. They made the whole experience of buying our first home a pleasant one, and we would not have found our dream home without the knowledge and expertise of the team. We would definitely recommend the Choporis Crispell team to our family and friends, and surely work with them again the future.
Gary and Jamie McQuay, dated June 26, 2017 ~ In brief, Carol outlined a sale strategy for our home and our condo in very short order that was backed with real market data. She began working immediately to find prospective buyers while also working with us to locate new property. She worked so efficiently at this that she found prospective buyers for both properties within one month which did not require us to even list our property. She also showed us numerous properties and helped us make our final decision to build a new house (which is now under construction). We couldn’t be happier!!
Charlene Pizzadili, dated June 20, 2017 ~ Carol has a sterling reputation in this area for honesty and integrity. I thought Carol did an amazing job of marketing my property. I had a lot of showings. I would recommend her to anyone. I have sold a few houses. She did an amazing job for me. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Lauri Busco, dated June 9, 2017 ~ I used Carolyn Kalmus-Choporis 5 years ago when I sold my townhouse and when I returned to the area, there was no other realtor firm that I wanted to use. The team did a great job finding a variety of housing options to look at and was with me every step of the way. Would recommend this team every time.
Jim and Betty Seaman, dated May 27, 2017 ~ Cindy was wonderful to work with. She understood our needs and is very knowledgeable of the Southern Maryland area. She did a wonderful job helping us find our perfect home.
Hannah Higgs, dated May 26, 2017 ~ I am a young first time home buyer and was very concerned about the entire process. Cindy and her team made the process so easy for me! I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
Stephen and Barbara Millar, dated April 10, 2017 ~ We are extremely thankful for our beautiful new home which has every feature we were looking for. Carol was instrumental in the process of finding this home - not an easy task, given our requirements. She was professional, friendly and helpful in every way. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
George and Vickie Hoyle, dated March 16, 2017 ~ Cind yprovided us with a memorable experience of the selling of our home. With her expertise advise in pricing and staging of our home we were able to sell in 6 days! (never heard of). Her knowledge and experience in the real estate market as well as her genuime trustworthiness, friendliness and professionalism shined through the whole transaction from start to finish. Thank you Cindy --- JOB WELL DONE!
Mark and Dana Cullison, dated March 9, 2017 ~ Carol and her team are a joy to work with. They make the process so easy and are very professional in every way.
Duchess Swift, dated February 23, 2017 ~ All questions were answered immediately. She loved my shower curtain. Tina and Cindy Crispell deserve equal praise for they are two of the three member team.
Pat and Ginny Johnson, dated February 16, 2017 ~ Carol was highly professional, personable and efficient. It was a pleasure working with her! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy.
George and Barbara Brstilo, dated February 3, 2017 ~ In our dealings with Carol Kalmus-Choporis, we found her to be very professional and knowledgeable on sales in our area, and she knew exactly what price to suggest in evaluating our home. Throughout the sale she was always there to assist us if a problem arose, and we leaned on her heavily. Along with Cindy her Associate, she had an open house, put a beautiful brochure together of our home, yard and shoreline which she distributed to the boat show adn other interested parties. Always cheerful, we enjoyed working with this team, and if the need arises we will definitely use her services again. We would also recommend her services to our friends/family. It was a good experience. Thank you Carol, Cindy & Tina
Charlie and Kathy Wright, dated February 2, 2017 ~ Tried ReMax the previous year without even a SINGLE showing. Carol Choporis showed a tremendously detailed knowledge of the area. Moreover, she truly understood our wants and needs and worked closely with us to market the property. The 9-month days-on-the-market figure is VERY misleading. During that time, Carol brought us THREE full-price contracts-each in less than 4 weeks. The first fell through because the buyers were unable to sell their existing home. The second fell through because (in our opinion) the buyer’s lender was attempting to sell a too-highly-priced mortgage to the buyer who ultimately failed to qualify for the loan. The third contract completed in under 90 days. Carol Choporis and Tina Henderson were a fabulous team. They went above and beyond to make this sale. We HIGHLY recommend them. Far beyond expectations.
Doug Bischoff, dated January 27, 2017 ~ The agent helped me find the appropriate help to get the home staged, maintain the yard and keep the home clean during the process of selling. The agent also helped me several months before listing to get home ready to sell. Because I do not live near the properties that were sold and am not familiar with the rules and laws of the state, I relied on Carol in many ways. Carol is a true full service agent.
Hank and Linda Moulton, dated January 3, 2017 ~ This is a great team. Everyone who participated is to be commended. Special thanks to Cindy and Tina for their parts in the total process. Carol, you made us feel comfortable, informed and confident throughout the process. Thanks for all you have done.
Tom and Ann Cook, dated December 26, 2016 ~ Very easy to work with and friendly would recommend her to others.
Larry and Beth Knisley, dated December 15, 2016 ~ Cindy was superb in all of our dealings, accessible and trustworthy, totally recommend her.
Tom and Diana Oh, dated December 6, 2016 ~ We would truly recommend Carol with the highest regards to anyone (of which we already have :) )
David Peterson, dated December 8, 2016 ~ Cindy did a great job even through some difficult times with the buyer's brokers. Also, a special thanks to Carol for her help!
Bill and Debbie Okoniewski, dated November 19, 2016 ~ We wanted a broker that was professional in all aspects. Carol Kalmus-Choporis is very knowledgable about the market. We also wanted someone with good negotiating skills, which Carol has. Our house was a more expensive house for the area. Carol did a wonderful job marketing our home from the beautiful on line pictures that she took, to the impressive Yard sign. The Opeen house that she planned for the other brokers took a lot of planning from teh caterer to setting up brochures. Her marketing skills got our house sold quickly. Other characteristics that Carol displayed was hardworking, tenacity, honesty and an engaging personality. With all those qualities we highly recommend her. Carol smoothly walked us through the sale of our house. This was a large financial transaction for us and we always had confidence in Carol. Carol was excellent! Her engaging personality and professionalism allowed a smooth transaction from sales price to settlement. No improvements needed.
Omar and Nancy Fernandez, dated October 6, 2016 ~ Very caring, very attentive and available. The team works incredibly well together and we were very satisfied as a result.
Scott Long, dated October 24, 2016 ~ Thank you Carol and your team of professionals. My home was a very tough sell and you stuck by it and pushed until the right buyer came along. We are very appreciative of your hard work and personal service.
Jackie Eno, dated September 13, 2016 ~ Cindy represented me for my original purchase of this house and the recent sale. I would never buy or sell a house without her! Since she works as part of a team, there is always someone available to assist. Cindy is extremely knowledgable about both buying and selling and it was very reassuring to have someone working on my side that I trusted completely.
Ryan Christopher ~ I like Cindy because she is very knowledgeable. She understands the market here in SoMD and she is a seasoned pro in real estate in general. My wife and I had tons of questions that ranged from paperwork like home inspection clarification and addendum explanations of the house we sold to asking for additional information such as surrounding area (neighborhood) and for paperwork of homes we have looked at to buy. She is always very prompt. She is personal yet professional. She is honest and seems to have our best interest in mind.
Robert and Connie Hempel…Cindy Crispell did an awesome job, from initial consultation all the way till closing selling our house. If we had questions or concerns, Cindy answered them and provided us expert advice. If anyone needs to sell a house, call CENTURY 21 New Millennium and ask for Cindy Crispell. Thank you Cindy for helping us sell our house. The Hempel Family
Helene Hunter…Cindy Crispell added the personal and professional touch needed to help our family through selling our Dad’s house.
Karen Guy…Cindy was great. My husband and I enjoyed working with her. She was very flexible and accommodating of our busy schedules. Everything went smoothly. She seems to be very sincere in her concern that our needs have been met and that we are satisfied. We will definitely call her for any future real estate transactions!
Kary Pawlowski…I would highly recommend Cindy Crispell to any house hunters out there. She is very professional and goes out of her way to ensure that her clients are fully satisfied with their home buying experience.
Roger and Peggy Thomas…We enjoyed working with Carol and her team. Her team did an outstanding job with assisting us with the sale of our home.

If needed I would certainly work with Carol and her team. Thanks.
Pastor Adam and Jennifer Polk…Carol and her team make the stresses of buying a home a joy. We purchased a foreclosure with several difficult challenges and Carol went above and beyond in helping us to work through every hurdle. Her knowledge and professionalism are unrivaled. We highly recommend Carol and her team as you consider selling or buying your next home. You will not be disappointed.
Cathy McGowan and John Raley…Cindy was extremely helpful and insightful when searching for our new home. She knew the area well and was able to help narrow down the homes to see based on what we were looking for. Cindy was extremely professional and was a great help in assisting us in finding our new home. She stayed in constant contact with us during the entire process and was able to help us get in contact with a home inspector along with confirming that all repairs were made and receipts received.
Pastor Jeremy and Marsha Rhoton…Being first time home buyers, my wife and I were a little intimidated about the home purchasing process. Carol Choporis did a great job of explaining to us how the process worked and was always kind to answer our questions, of which we had many. Carol Choporis was always timed in responding to our questions from the beginning of our home search till the end. She is professional and caring, always showing respect. Her knowledge of the local housing market is unsurpassed. I would highly recommend Carol Choporis to my family and friends. She has a strong work ethic, attention to detail and did an amazing job negotiating for the price of our new home.
Mark and Jill Maxwell…Carol was wonderful to work with. Friendly, professional and very knowledgeable of the market and our expectations. She worked with the inspectors and appraisers very well supporting our interests continually. Highly recommend!!
Bob and Shirley Krilowicz…Carol and her team were simply awesome. We couldn’t have made this most difficult transition to new jobs in San Diego without her. I would invite all my neighbors to experience such a minimally stressful property sale as we had. I am especially thankful we had Carol on our side!
Karen Denihan…Kudos to both Carol and Cindy for putting up with me during the search process. They really put a lot of thought and effort into helping figure out what was right for me when I wasn’t even sure. They did a remarkable job and I am so happy in my new home!
Gary and Linda Reed…After living in our home for 33 years and never having sold a property there was some apprehension in beginning the process to sell. From the first interaction and discussions with Carolyn to the final closing day, Carolyn was a true professional, but also personable and a pleasure to work with. She was energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and attentive. She showed compassion, honesty and dedication to our needs. The entire process was expeditious, and our house was sold in less than a week! Needless to say, we are appreciative of Carolyn’s efforts and the experience she brought to our selling process.
Jan Kiger…Carol Kalmus-Choporis is superlative in her field. Her many years of experience have obviously resulted in giving her excellent skills in handling multi-faceted selling situations. She is dedicated to meeting her client’s needs without compromising ethics and integrity and she and her assistant Tina were always communicating with me regarding the status of the sale. She is a true professional and a kind person who is concerned equally with the sale and well as how she treats her clients. Thank you so very much Carol!
Courtney and Dawn Accipiter…Carolyn has excellent knowledge of her local area, and hands on experience with local people and that matters in the real estate business, she’s well versed in many area’s such as farms and water front properties on top of being a good honest person, my wife and I highly recommend Carolyn for any real estate transactions.
Kathleen Haberstick…Carol Choporis is always professional, always honest and always approachable. She has had my best interest in mind each time I needed her capabilities for my real estate needs.
Doreen and Glenn Talbott…We have used Carol and her staff for many of our home buying and selling needs. She and her staff have created quick turnarounds for all aspects of both helping use purchase and selling our house (3 transactions to be exact). We now live in Florida and she and her staff worked a lot of the details for the sale of this property since we were not physically there. I will always use her as our Agents if there is ever a need to purchase a home in MD again. We will highly recommend her to our Maryland family and friends. She and her team are AWESOME and a pleasure to work with. Very quick and responsive and made this sale and the whole selling of our home seamless.
John Keohane…The Choporis Crispell Team is now my go-to team for any and all real estate needs. They were prompt, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, respectful, fair and personable. They always looked out for my best interests. They found me a house that fit all my needs and perfectly suits my personality. There are no 2 other realtors that I would want to represent me and my interests than Carol and Cindy. There are top notch professionals.
Steve and Katie Keene…Here reputation is fantastic. She is professional and considerate of each person she encounters, which is part of her excellent reputation. It was a pleasure working with Carol and now that we have bought a house we realized we will miss her! J
David and Tina Dotson…Carol was awesome to work with! We looked at MANY houses before this purchase. Carol was always so kind, patient and helpful as we looked at homes in the north, south, east and west parts of St. Mary’s. We would recommend Carol to any and every one. We are looking forward to her help in getting our other house listed as a sale or rental and will trust her judgment in helping us make our decisions. Thank you again Carol! We love you! God Bless!
Holly Snyder…Carol provided extraordinary services throughout the sale of our home. She continuously went above and beyond to get us to a successful closure of this sale of our home. Carol truly offered well thought-out advice and consulted with us on critical decisions very timely. She was a strategic thinker when obstacles arose and helped connect us with great resources quickly when repairs or help was needed. Tina was awesome at keeping all the logistical details on track. Both Carol and Tina were outstanding with their proactive communications and they were both highly responsive when we had questions. I highly recommend Carol and her team to anyone buying or selling a home!! Carol and team are the top-notch!!
Stew and Debbie Browning…Carol was recommended to us by the Headmaster of our grandson’s school. He had nothing but high praise for Carol and he was right!! Carol was willing to show us as many houses as we wanted to see and answer any and all questions we had. It is obvious that she knows her trade very well and used it to our advantage. We trusted her every step of the way and could not have been more pleased. So glad to have met her.
Jackie Eno…Cindy represented me for my original purchase of this house and the recent sale. I would never buy or sell a house without her! Since she works as part of a team, there is always someone available to assist. Cindy is extremely knowledgeable about both buying and selling and it was reassuring to have someone working on my side that I trusted completely.
Carly and Eric Rutherford…Fast, easy and painless! I even made more profit than I expected! Cindy and team were a pleasure to work with.
Kathy Walker…I had the best experience with Cindy Crispell and Tina Henderson. I had to sell my house due to tenants who took advantage of me and my home. They put rocks in my sink, smashed the rain spout, left trash in the yard and throughout the entire house, including but not limited to chicken wings, pizza crust, underwear, socks, couches, which were considered too large for trash removal and I had to personally pay to take them to the dump, amount other rotten things. The house was filthy and there was a leak that caused damage to the ceiling in the kitchen. I felt hopeless owing money to the mortgage company on top of all these repairs that in my mind, needed to be done. The tenants owed me over $6,000 and left the county without notifying me. With all the damage plus months and months of unpaid rent, I had to sell the home through a short-sale. I was referred to Cindy through a lawyer I took my case to. He told me that he knew the perfect team for selling my house as a short-sale. I was introduced to Cindy when she came out almost immediately to look at the house. I knew right away that she was extremely knowledgeable and motivated. From that day Cindy and her fabulous team, worked continuously and passionately, on the sale of my home. Any questions I had were answered all the time and in a timely manner. Even though the process was lengthy, I never felt that they had forgotten me. I was always informed and kept up-to-date about every detail. Signing papers on cell phone or computer was extremely convenient. Cindy and Tina were professional, friendly and very easy to talk to. I highly recommend Century 21, in Southern MD, to anyone in the market to buy a new houses or looking to sell their property. Cindy and her team were awesome!!
Mark and Dana Cullison…Carolyn Kalmus-Choporis and her team at CENTURY 21 New Millennium are outstanding to work with. They go above and beyond to make every purchase/sale we do very easy. I wish more people had their work ethics.
Eric and Nancy Trexler...Carol and her team are superb. They understand what we wanted, delivered while keeping us appraised throughout the entire process. Always considerent of personal schedules they made everything from viewings, home inspections to closing a snap. My wife and I would recommend Carol to anyone based on many attributes; knowledge of the area and inventories available, the ever-changing laws and policies that affect the buying process as well as the absolute professionalism of how they deal with homebuyers. BIG ATTA BOY to Carol, Cindy and Tina for making our Purchase and absolute JOY!!
Norman Dean...Carol Kalmus-Choporis is a top notch pro. She listened carefully to my needs and quickly found me just the right house. She checked in almost daily and handled all of the details smoothly and efficiently. Carol helped me negotiate a price below list and was a pleasure to work with. If you need a Real Estate agent who really understands Southern Maryland and will work very hard to find you just the right home, Carol is your woman!
Betty Whitwer...Cindy Crispell and her team are true, no nonsense professionals with a very good knowledge of the Southern Maryland real estate market as well as resources to help sell housing.
Tom and Nancy Rocheleau...Our overall experience with the Choporis Crispell Team was excellent. They were always extremely friendly, professional, answered questions quickly and efficiently and it was a very good experience working with them. Carol offered on serveral occasions to perform a duty that might well have been my responsibility. I truely appreciated the offer as I was quite busy and stressed out from packing to move, loading our van and truck, unloading, etc. I feel I gained a new friend in Carol. Thank you for a satisfying experience.
Lou and Lynn Kendrick...Cindy was very attentive to our particular needs regarding the sale of our house. It was appropriately priced, and we were satisfied with the final sales amount. The marketing was well done and we were kept fully informed of results. Cindy was easy to contact and responded quickly to questions. She worked as a team with her sister, Carol Choporis, and their professionalism and knowledge made a stressful situation as pain free as possible. Overall, it was a great experience and I would recommend Cindy without reservation.
Robert de Vos...Carol was able to handle all aspects of the sale with utmost professionalism and sensitivity. I would not hesitate recommending Carol to one and all.
Dan Kaspar...I have had the pleasure of working with Carol on several occasions and no matter how small of a purchase or how large it always ranked first on her list.
Lance and Dawn Schiemer...Having never sold a home before, the prospect of this journey was both emotional and terrifying for me. Cindy and her associates made this experience very easy, from the first meeting at our home, right down to settlement and after! Cindy managed to remain professional, while still providing us with a friendly feel and an honesty that made our comfort level soar. I kept saying that this process was so simple and surely the other shoe was soon to fall, but that never happened. I have already recommended Cindy and CENTURY 21 to anyone who has asked and just want to thank you for a great experience!
Albert and Sandi Brockman...I do not believe anyone else could have made our sales experience any easier or pleasure. Thanks Carol.
Jimmy and Eleanor McVerry...Carol is warm, informative, gave helpful information. Carol also knows the area very well and shares information with you.
Mike and Ami Cohn...Carol Kalmus-Choporis is a true professional who knows the market and real estate business. My wife and I originally wanted to use her to advise us on the contract given to us by a new home builder we selected before working with her. At our first meeting, I asked Carol for her thoughts on the contract. Immediately she told us that the builder was priced significantly above market and that she wanted to show us the better options out there. THis was not what we wanted to hear, but gave her the benefit of the doubt and looked at some existing homes and other builders. When we told her that she didn't change our minds, she happily represented us, even though we decided to go against her initial advice. As we progressed down the home building process with her, we started to realize that things were not what we thought. One day I told my wife: 'Hey! These guys are way above market! I can get more house for less money today!' Sound familiar? Carol knew this all along, but let us find out for ourselves. The moral of this story? Nobody knows St. Mary's County like Carol Kalmus-Choporis. I'm a very happy customer and can't say enough good things about working with her!
Fred and Paula Williar...Selection was based on friend's recommendation and previous sales history. Carol Choporis and Cindy Crispell were responsive to our needs. The on-line advertising was excellent. The sales experience was trouble free. Carol and Cindy did an excellent job.
Bobby and Debbie Siebenmark...Carol is an awesome person and made our home sale very easy.
Don Hebb...Did a very good job with a complex situation.
Joe and Marian Bowser...Carol Kalmus-Choporis has proven herself and her skills in many sales within our family. The first encounter we enjoyed with her was the sale of our home in 2003 which sold in two days. She has since sold properties for other family members. She has steadfastly earned our trust. As we prepare to list our current home...we have already contacted Carol for the next sale. We have had nothing but positive interactions with this agency and with Carol her team. We love and trust Carol and look forward to working with her during the upcoming sale of our current home. She is honest, forthcoming, respectful and considerate. Her knowledge of the real estate market in our area is obvious and her technique is polished and professional while remaining friendly and without coming across as smug. She treats us like friends and makes us comfortable wiht the difficult transition of selling our family home. Her warmth adn compassion show through in every interaction. We wouldn't consider going anywhere else for our real estate needs.
Cody and Kelsey Copus...We liked Carol and her knowledge of the area. WE had a community tour arranged by a mutual business associate and were impressed with her. She helped us with understanding the process of a first time home buying experience without hiccoughs.
Laurie Frederick...Congratulations on both the marriage and baby. You did have a lot changing this year and now more to come with a baby. Bet the girls are excited. I need to thank you and Tina for the all the great help you provided me when I sold the house last year. I knew you did a lot for me, but I did not realize how much until I saw how little other realtors do. A friend at work was trying to sell his mom´s house in La Plata. He had problems with the plot and then also the well needed replacing. He had to deal with all that. In my house you and Tina dealt with that and referred me to good people and made a lot of the phone calls for me. I also was involved with a house in PA. My nephews put their house on the market Oct 08 and in March 09 it was not sold and it had very few people interested. I was so unhappy with the realtor. The pictures were terrible and the listing did not even mention the garage. He did very little to get the house sold. We took it off the market and now I own it with one of my nephews. Dealing with the mortgage company and closing and all was another headache you had helped me with. You guys are a great team and truly do all you can do to sell a house and assist in every aspect of selling/buying a house. Thanks so much. Have a good holiday.
Paul and Janet Edgren...Cindy, I'm glad to have met you. From the time I called Tina at your office I knew you were very qualified. As I told you my wife and I traveled from California to Lexington Park to help our "kids" A.J and Tami Paza find their first home. After leaving to come home we have a very good feeling knowing you are their agent. Many times in our busy lives we don't take the time to say Thank you! We do thank you!
Lindsay Gray and Nick Brenfleck...Cindy, Thank you so much for all you did to make our home-buying experience a pleasant one. We appreciate the time you spent with us, your support, and the helpful advice you gave us. We couldn't be happier with our purchase! We plan to stay in our new home for several years, but will definitely call on you if we're looking to move in the future. Thanks again for everything!
Don McCarthy...Carol, We never got a chance to meet, but I wanted to thank you for all your efforts in the sale of my new condo/townhouse :). Mike Benton told me it would not have happened without your determined efforts. I was in the military 25 years and I've never seen the bureaucracy move that quickly.
Dan Keith...Hello Cindy, I got your message and no I don't have any concerns. I think that you're doing a "Excellent" job. I will definitely recommend you to anybody that I talk to. You make me feel like if anyone can sell in this market it's going to be you. That confidence that I have in you is the only reason that I keep holding out hope. We've had good responses but, as you said just no contracts. We've had people who didn't like that there wasn't a basement. We can't change that. We've had some that didn't like the laundry set up. We've even had one guy who didn't like the crown molding. Give me a break! We've had people that wanted a swimming pool. Several didn't like the bedroom sizes. We can't change that either. We've lowered the price twice now I think. So, I don't think that there's much more that we can do. Oh yeah, I even offered up my big screen TV and my riding lawn mower. You've advertised every where and I think that it's just how bad the economy is. But, I stay hopeful because you're at the helm. Keep up the "Great Job: Friends, Dan
Erin Johnson...Cindy, Thanks so much for everything you have done for us you have been great. You are absolutely right and when Brett and I got home and sat and talked about everything I realized that this is a big investment and we have to make a good decision not a quick decision. I really appreciate your advice, providing your clients with "real" honest feedback like that is what makes you a great Realtor.
Dave Sydnor...Tina, I just wanted to extend a personal Thank You from me and Dee for your support in moving our house from "For Sale" to "Sold". All inter-actions were prompt, professional and courteous. It was simply a pleasure dealing with your CENTURY 21 office for this transaction.
Page Downer...Tina, Just wanted to say a big thanks for all your professionalism during this transaction. You made everything so easy for me.
Walt and Stacy Maffei...Carol, Cindy and Tina, Just a quick note to express our appreciation for the excellent, top-notch service we received while selling our home. All of you truly made the experience enjoyable, and I know that selling a home can be less than enjoyable! Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication. You are a great group to work with.
Jimmy and Jodi Pilkerton...The purpose of this note is to say 'thank you!' We would like to express our joint gratitude for successfully marketing and selling our Woodmont Drive home. It is a rare thing, indeed, to find an individual that is not only nice to be around, but also a true professional in every sense of the word. Your determination to succeed paid off in spades. Again, thank you.
Richard Shin…Carol, We did not get a chance at the settlement to say thank you. I appreciate what you and your team have accomplished for us. You guys have been professional and I can certainly tell you that you have exceeded my expectation as highly recommended top agent in the area; I certainly saw the difference between a top notch agent vs. others I have worked with in the past. Your team’s communication has been notably exceptional, notifying me of each showing’s and results, and providing me up to date status of the market. I look forward to working with you again and certainly recommend you to others.
Rich and Janey Lutz…Cindy, Carol and Tina, We really appreciate everything you did to help us find and buy our house. We love this house and we love living in this neighborhood. Ladies you were great to work with and we thank you very much.
David Maybury (Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia)… Hi Carol, Just a little thank you for your recipe cards. You sold a house for me way back in 1999. I had just transferred to Okinawa, Japan and you started sending recipe cards. Still have them and going to get ingredients in the morn for tomorrow nights dinner. Thanks for your kindness, professionalism and recipe cards! Hope life is treating you well. Blessings, David
Carl Chebi...Carol - wanted to say thank you again for all your help and advice. Maggie and I have truly enjoyed working with you and very happy with everything you have done for us. Thanks Again.
Mike and Kelly Crompton...Carol was wonderful! She is really on top of what is going on in the market in our area and the surrounding areas. She is also very insightful as she helps clients look a bit outside the box. (Which is what we needed and is what helped us find our home.) We have used Carol to help sell our previous home and to help purchase our new home. We would not make another move without her assistance.
Frank and Fran Glanding...Carol was a great agent...She sold our house very quickly in a slow market. Very professional and helped us thru each stage of our home sale process. We already recommended Carol to friends that are thinking of selling their home.
Stephen Bruso...Thanks for all your help and patients during my first home buying experience. I will definitely recommend you to friends.
Melissa Alton & Michael Smith...Cindy Crispell was extremely knowledgeable, adaptable and a pleasure to work with. Her patience and professionalism are to be commended. I would recommend utilizing her to any friend that is looking for a realtor.
Cory and Stephanie Angst...Thank you so much for sticking with us throughout the sale of our home. We know it was a long road, but one that certainly has resulted in a positive outcome for all of us! Your professionalism, support, and guidance throughout this process was greatly appreciated and also comforting. You ladies have been invaluable to us in moving forward in our lives. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Thank you and may God Bless each of you! Cory and Stephanie.
Karl Loomis...Cindy was very helpful and did an amazing job helping me through the process of purchasing my first home.
Tom Florip and Bernie Nguyen...The Choporis/Crispell Team was a delight to work with. Very professional, very knowledgeable, and very dedicated. We can't say enough good things about them.
Richard and Brenda Fortin...Our agent, Carol Choporis, was very professional and mostly very trustworthy. This was the easiest home buy we have ever experienced. I will highly recommend Carol Choporis and CENTURY 21 to all I know. I want to thank Carol and all who were involved in helping us to buy our home. It is nice to know that there is a business that values people and values doing what is right. May God Bless you all.
Mary and Pat Bookey...Cindy, we wanted to thank you and your team for your efforts & work to get us in our new home. We absolutely love it and are looking forward to spending time together in it! We greatly appreciate the long hours as well as the feeling that we were a priority. Thanks for everything.
Shannon and Ruth Cox...I do want to say that Carol and Tina were the BEST, we started this process about a year ago when we first started looking for homes in the area, Carol is very professional, patient and made us feel that our best interest was being taken care of and not just purchase any house! I will definitely recommend both Carol and Tina to any home seekers as well as if one day we are in the market again. We truly love our new place (other than the crazy driveway :-)) But the whole experience working with this team has made it a wonderful and well worth it. We thank you!!!!!
Dustin and Michele Monokian...Carol was extremely accessible and understood our concerns and assisted us with our home purchase, with all its ups and downs, perfectly.
Ian & Anne MacKinnon...The Century 21 Team of Cindy Kalmus-Crispell, Carol Kalmus-Choporis and Tina Zimmerman were professional, efficient, affective, informative and helpful. Carol seemed to take the lead early on and did a very good job of promoting the sale. Cindy was particularly helpful and became the go-to person for details once the price was reduced and a buyer was located. I commend her for her work considering I was in Maine and the buyer lived in Maryland. Tina kept the flow of documents organized and presented in a timely manner.
Sue and Glenn Sanders...We waited a long time to put our house up for sale because of the last time we sold it was terrible, all kinds of tears and headaches. This time it was a absolute pleasure to work with Cindy, no tears, no headaches and it was fun. We had to do some things that I really didn't want to do but she what she was talking about because she sold our house in 6 days!!! Cindy and Carol you guys ROCK!!! Thank you for all that you do, you guys are the BEST!!!!
Monique and Nikki Longmore...Cindy was great to work with. We were two hours away and she saved us a couple trips back and forth. She was a good listener and kept us informed throughout.
Paul Raley...Carol Choporis is, without question, the best real estate agent in this area. She worked extremely hard getting this complicated transaction completed. She was a pleasure to work with!
Dick and Tracie Owens... Just an hour ago we concluded all the closing paperwork in a most pleasing and professional manner and atmosphere - and without incident or hic-cup. Tracie and I truly - TRULY - appreciate all that you and your TEAM have done in the promotion of, and final selling of our Home. Your efforts made possible the conclusion of the selling of the house in a reasonable time frame, and at a cost that benefited us and the young couple who will find great joy in the home. Throughout, you have been most supportive of our wishes, patient and professional in all our dealings yet tenacious in your endeavors to sell the home for us... Thank you, and thank Tina for all the supportive e-mails and phone calls... It's been a pleasure, and we look forward to ONE MORE big effort --- the two lots :)
Kathleen Crowder...Carol and her team were fantastic!!! They went above and beyond to make sure every step went perfect, smooth and timely. I would and have recommended Carol and plan to call her next time I'm either buying or selling real estate. :) I have an email in route to Mary Lynn Stone to further express my praise and gratitude.
Karin Gruber...Cindy was terrific to work with - very knowledgeable about the county and area; kept me in the loop on all events. Very, very pleased with her. I wish she was in Florida (where I live) to help me with other real estate transactions. A very smart, creative and dynamic salesperson.
Stacy Maffei...Carol & Cindy did an amazing job with the sale of our house. I can't begin to express my gratitude for their professionalism, kindness & attention to detail. The only comment I can make is that the C21 office sent us a letter on how to prepare our house for sale. Carol & Cindy had already sold the house! Might want to get that letter out ASAP when they are the listing agents.
Kevin & Pamela Fitting...My husband and I really enjoyed working with Cindy. She learned what we were looking for and was extremely flexible, going out of her way several times to help us look at homes. We are so thankful for her expertise and hope to stay in contact with her!
Jimmy & Jenn Shaffer...Cindy and her team were great. Always kept us informed and handled issues that arose quickly and painlessly to us. Would definitely recommend her!
Matt Finkbeiner & Jessica Coates...Cindy was great with us. She made our first home buying experience feel very comfortable and helped us with anything we needed.
Behn & Megan Trader...Carol and Cindy were both wonderful!
Walt Maffei...This is the forth sale/buy I have used with Carol/Cindy Choporis Crispell Team. I will use them again and again.
Mike & Pam Hockenberry...Cindy has sold previous homes for me and I could not ask for a better agent to work with. Her knowledge and expertise is fantastic. When it comes to selling homes, she is my lucky charm:)
Tonya Miller...Carol C, Tina and Team were excellent! It was a pleasure working with them. I would certainly recommend them, as well as use them again, should there be a need.
Lesia Mandzia and Sibyl Tilson...Carol (and Tina) were responsive, professional and helpful...with a sense of humor as a bonus. We didn't feel any pressure to buy, but did get the support we needed when we decided to purchase the house. We would (and have) recommended Carol and CENTURY 21 New Millennium to a couple of friends who are considering the area.
Thomas & Lorraine Teefey...I feel that they went to the extreme to be of assistance to my husband and I to get the property sold. I believe that if it had not been for them that the house would still be on the market. A job well done!!!!!
Brian Beavan & Jerica Hardin...Carol Choporis was our direct agent, she was professional and personal. She made my husband and I feel extremely comfortable when in the process of buying/building our first home.
Mrs. O'Connor...Dear Carol, I want to thank you for all the help you gave me when I sold the house. I always felt very comfortable calling and getting information on anything I didn't understand. Selling was a very hard thing for me to do, as you know. Almost 60 years of my life was living in that house. You did everything you could to make it easier. God Bless, Mary Jo O'Connor
Tim Duggins...Tina, It has been a pleasure to have you working on our behalf. Excellent job. Thank you so very much.
Dan & Amanda Cox...We have purchased two homes in VA before our first in Maryland and Cindy is the best realtor we have ever worked with.
Ken & Lynn Eldridge...Enjoyed working wit Carol. Professional and to the point!
Loretta Durdock...This is the second time I have worked with Cindy. Both experiences have been great. She is so knowledgeable and helpful. Unfortunately since I now live in SC when the time comes to purchase a new home I will not be able to work with Cindy. However, I will recommend her to any friends in MD when they need a real estate agent.
Kyle & Danielle Roudebush...Both Cindy and Carol were very attentive and helpful with the sale of our home. Any questions or concerns we had were quickly and easily dealt with. Although we are unlikely to need their services again as we have since moved to the west coast, I have, and will continue to, recommend them HIGHLY to our friends moving to or still residing in the Southern Maryland area.
Mike Burroughs...Cindy is a very knowledgeable agent. It's a pleasure to deal with her.
Judy Wallace & Tommy Pratt...Our agent was Carol Kalmus-Choporis, Cindy Kalmus-Crispell and Tina Zimmerman. It was a wonderful experience. There were a few bumps in the road, which had nothing to do with them. The problems were solved quickly. Will call them again if we ever need assistance buying or selling any property.
Jeff & Cindy Worcester...We cannot say enough good things about our experience with the Choporis Crispell Team with regards to this most recent sale. Carol, Cindy and Tina were always there to answer questions and take care of anything that popped up. Carol's advice and analysis throughout the process was spot on and certainly very much appreciated. Thank You for everything!!! Jeff and Cindy
Charlie and Sharon Thomas...Great working relationship. Would highly recommend Cindy!
Peggy Foley...Everyone was extremely helpful even those working the front desk.
Nick Neven...Actually my agent, I thought was Carol Choporis. Cindy was like an alternate POC. Anyway, they both worked together well and had my back through the whole process. There were a couple of "burps" along the way, but the issues were addressed and resolved in a timely fashion and to my satisfaction.
Catherine Vestraci...Cindy Crispell is ABSOLUTELY an AWESOME EFFECTIVE, PROFESSIONAL & VERY MARKET ASTUTE agent I would highly recommend or use in the future, if needed. Carol's ability to capture amazing pictures for marketing property was most impressive and often commented on by others. THANK YOU, LADIES - TINA, too, for a wonderful outcome!
Chuck and Mindy Angus...Carol is the consummate professional. From the first day we met her, we knew we made the right choice. Carol worked tirelessly to show us numerous homes and provided us options by introducing us to a first-tier home builder. She expertly led us through the home buying process in MD and ultimately enabled us to complete a successful transaction. Carol's knowledge of the area and the housing market were indispensable. Her insistence on personally presenting our final offer during tricky negotiations made the difference between success and failure. Carol must be setting the standard for exceptional customer service -- she has earned our highest endorsement.
