I am pleased to write a recommendation on behalf of Christine Stalsonberg for Coasties on the Move. I first became acquainted with Christine when my family and I moved to Traverse City, MI a year and a half ago. Since then, I have had the pleasure of getting to know her on a professional and personal level.
Christine has been actively involved in helping many Coast Guard families find and purchase homes after being assigned here in Traverse City. She is very knowledgeable in the VA loan process, changes to military benefits and the most current events affecting our Military.
Christine is an outstanding Real Estate Agent, who recently helped my family and I purchase a new home, and I would like to commend her on her outstanding work ethic. She truly understands what a Coast Guard client wants and needs, and she is extremely dedicated to serving others. For these reasons, Christine comes with my highest recommendation.
Patty B., Coast Guard Spouse.
During this very hectic transitional time in our Coast Guards lives, knowing we have the right realtor looking after us and essentially the future of our household, is a really comforting feeling. Below you will find those Realtors (and ONLY those) who have been highly recommended from your fellow Coasties as they relocate from place to place. Please send testimonials to add and feel free to recommend your favorite realtor. As always, Best of Luck with your Move!

It wasn't enough for us to just be Realtors, we had to have our own staging business, too. While the vast majority of our work is comprised of making our own listings look great, we also take the time to help out our fellow Realtors who need assistance in staging their listings.
Featured in Money Magazine- May 2007
We had the pleasure of working with Money Magazine on an article about what it takes to sell a home. They featured a For Sale By Owner (a.k.a. FSBO) that was having trouble selling. We staged three of their most problematic rooms and offered suggestions on how they could do little things throughout the house to "upgrade". We're happy to say that they owners finally SOLD thanks to our on hand staging and our advice they took.

As a Coastie wife,
Jill knows what a Coastie needs!
“Being a Veteran of the United States Army is something that I hold very near and dear to my heart. So when I began looking for my first home, I wanted to know that I would get every benefit possible to me. With the help of Jill Fouch, I was able to move into my first home with veteran benefits that I never knew existed. She researched day and night for the best rates, deals and discounts possible on the market. Her professionalism and dedication to servicing others is awesome and I recommend her not only to military families but any in need of an outstanding Realtor!” ~Twyla Gainey
I’d like to commend you for your outstanding work as my real estate agent in the purchase of my new home. Given the stressors normally encountered during a military relocation, your charming and enthusiastic attitude helped make the entire process fun and pleasurable. Your attention to detail in learning our specific needs and wants, coupled with your impressive knowledge of the Greater Jacksonville real estate market quickly helped to narrow down the search to a select few comparable neighborhoods. Your personal attentiveness, availability and patience during the showing phase was extraordinary. Finally, once my wife and I had settled on a particular home, the sage advice you provided using your keen intuition and market insight was simply brilliant and resulted in our saving over $30K in the negotiating process with the seller.
Thank you for repeatedly going the extra mile for us at every opportunity. Sophie and I are honored to have had you as our agent, and more importantly, to consider you our first true new friend in the area.”
~ Paul J. Coleman

Gretchen was our agent during a Military house hunting expedition. She worked hard to show us countless homes in a short period; when we were at the end of our rope she went above and beyond. She showed us one last house at 9pm. That "last" house is now our home, and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Gretchen for your patients, hard work and genuine concern. We will always refer you to potential buyers and will be forever grateful for your fantastic professionalism. Gretchen has been invaluable and I truly believe she will be an asset to those that wish to use her (especially since she lives in Camden and her children attend the schools).. She also services The Elizabeth City, Currituck, and Hertford areas.
~ Kylie M. (AS Elizabeth City, NC)
Gretchen not only had to deal with the typical clients who are looking for that home of their dreams, but were also smack in the middle of military transition into civilian life. We were in a very stressed frame of mind and Gretchen’s professionalism made this the memorable experience we otherwise could have only hoped for... We will be forever grateful that we found Gretchen and would recommend and encourage anyone seeking a real estate agent to contact Gretchen. You will not regret it.

My family and I PCS'd to Headquarters U.S. Southern Command in July 2012. With any move, finding the right house is vital; but this is particularly true in South Florida. I cannot say enough about Ann Jerred and the assistance she provided my wife and I in order to find the perfect house for us on a short timeline. She has all of the qualities that I have learned to look for in a rraltor after 19 years of military service: patience, flexibility, professionalism, and integrity. She has my utmost recommendation to join the COTM website. Any military family would (fortunate to have Ann Jerred as a realtor and friend when moving to South Florida.
~ Scott (USAF)
My wife and I were thoroughly pleased with our home buying experience with Ann Jerred of EWM Realty. This is the second house I have purchased but the first one in Florida. I was impressed with Ann’s knowledge of the area, and her honesty about the condition of the homes and market where we were looking. She answered all of our questions and kept us thoroughly informed throughout the entire process. She was organized, enthusiastic, and responsive at all hours of the day and night and really came through for us during negotiations and during a closing process. I would highly recommend Ann to anyone who is buying or selling a home in Weston, Florida or surrounding areas.

"As first-time homebuyers, we were extremely pleased with the level of professionalism, honesty, and integrity that Scott Merryman adhered to. He made the process very smooth for us, was willing to show us any home we were interested in and was very understanding with our endless questions regarding buying a home. We appreciated his military experience and that he understood the challenges we faced relocating to a new area. Scott is very friendly and down to earth, offers great advice, and is goal-oriented. Not only is he great at what does, but he has become a great friend throughout the process. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell a home in the Houston-Galveston area!" ~ The Larsen Family

TESTIMONIALS FROM BUYERS…..
If you EVER need a real estate agent in the Mobile area, I highly recommend Melanie Susman! Todd and I moved to Mobile with the Coast Guard, and bought our first home with her help. She was AMAZING through the entire process. She was available to communicate weeks before I could travel to Mobile through email, text, and phone. I constantly sent her listings I thought were do-able. She helped us go through them, helped us find a great neighborhood, and a PERFECT little house. And, even though our budget wasn’t very big, she was with us the entire weekend, helping in everyone way possible to make our dream a reality. Words really can’t describe how grateful we were to find such an amazing person.
-- Makailynn and Todd L.
Thank you so much for all of your help in finding us a home in Mobile! We absolutely love our house! You also helped us with schools for our children and all three are doing amazingly well. You made our transition to life in Mobile a smooth one and we have been recommending you to anyone we come across who needs a realtor for the upcoming Coast Guard transfer season. We so appreciate your help and assistance. You went above and beyond what we would expect from a realtor.
-- Jennifer and Eric B.
TESTIMONIALS FROM SELLERS…..
It was more than a pleasure working with you on the sale of our house. You are very professional and personable at the same time. We were so happy to find an agent (you) who was able to give advice, guidance and be realistic. We always felt that you were on our side; words of encouragement and ideas of what to do next, made us feel that you were truly there for us. We appreciated that more than you know. We love you!
-- Becky W.
Matt and I want to extend our deepest thanks for everything you did to help us in the sale of our house. You were so wonderful to work with…. A true professional! You made everything very easy for us, and you have so unselfishly given of your time and efforts. Thank you for sharing all your wisdom and expertise. Most of all, thank you for your friendship. We have so enjoyed getting to know you and your family through this process.

Last month I came on this page [COTM FB page] asking about a Clearwater area realtor to help us find a house for our upcoming PCS to the area. Someone mentioned Heather Lee Ferguson and I'm so glad they did. She was wonderful and I must brag about our experience. She was so knowledgeable and made the whole weekend we came to house hunt better than we could have ever expected. We ended up with our dream home in an area we had never thought about. She worked day and night for 4 days straight to get us the house we loved. Not to mention all the time she spent researching and setting up viewings in the weeks ahead of time. We now have a signed contract in hand and so grateful for her hard work. My husband and I had a blast getting to know Heather over the short time we were in town this weekend. I highly recommend anyone in the area or coming to the area to contact Heather! You will instantly understand what I'm talking about after just a minute into a phone call. -- Cassandra D.

We had the privilege of working with Linda as our realtor for the purchase of our home in Gates, NC. Linda's knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and she is most certainly able to do more than the average agent...We were and continue to be impressed by her professionalism. From the beginning we experienced top-notch realty expertise and we would not hesitate to recommend Linda Lewis to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of our future real estate transactions. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Linda or being anything but happy in choosing to work with her.

"Renee was excellent! She certainly exceeded our expectations under a difficult time constraint. When we initially met we told her we had a year to sell. A few weeks later, because of unexpected orders, we only had 3 months to sell and despot the odds..Renée delivered. She was extremely responsive, polite and always professional. We highly recommend her." -- A & J Young
"Words truly can’t describe the appreciation I have for the ladies that helped us complete our recent home purchase in Cape Cod, MA. Coasties on the Move led us to Renee Bello (William Raveis Real Estate) who graciously introduced us to the housing market on the Cape, Jennifer McClaren (Albemarle Bank and Trust) who showed us what honest mortgage banking is all about and Rebecca Moore (Moore Law) who executed a headache free closing. These ladies worked seamlessly together to take the work and stress off of our plate during this crazy transfer time and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Renee spent countless hours preparing us for our 3 day house hunting visit to the Cape. As a Cape local, she did a fantastic job introducing us to our new town and helping us find the perfect house to call home. At the end of our whirlwind trip we had a signed contract in hand, a home inspection completed and everything already in the works for a quick turnaround on our closing. Renee’s diligence and hospitality continued throughout the long distance closing process and she even met us in the driveway to welcome us home after or 2 day/ 20 hour/ 6 state drive!" -- Kari E.
Lenny Marsh, Associate Broker
Long and Foster Real Estate
NVAR Top Producer
Mobile: (703) 282-6511
I joined Long and Foster in 2009 after a 15 year career in the Fairfax County Public School System. In 2005 I was awarded the American Star of Education award by the US Secretary of Education and I also received the oddly name President’s Award for Education from the Governor of Virginia. My best real estate skills come from my years in education – I listen well. Tell me what you want and I will make it happen. Early in a client relationship I ask the question “what is your greatest fear about this purchase/sale?” Once I know what it is that you are most concerned about I very easily make sure to steer you away from that problem. Real estate is all about finding what people need and then figuring a way to get there.
In my first full year as a Realtor I was Long and Foster’s Rookie of the Year (remember we have approximately 14,000 agents!). As a former educator I always strive to keep myself as informed as possible. Over the past few years I have been certified for many specialties but I am most proud of my ABR rating (Accredited Buyer Rep). Fewer than 3% of all Realtors nationally attain that rating. My teaching skills are probably the most effective tools I have transferred to my real estate career.
In 2013 I received my broker’s license and as of today I am an associate broker with Long & Foster, the Mid-Atlantic’s largest and most respected real estate firm.
I keep an extensive and constantly evolving list of service providers and I continue to share them with my clients long after our transaction ends. I can safely say that many of my clients have gone on to become close friends. I look forward to serving the members of the Coast Guard and their families.
Neither my wife nor I have purchased a house before, the whole process is new to the both of us. From the get go Lenny was professional and most of all, understanding. He answered all of our questions, no matter how trivial. He would call us back shortly after we called if he didn't pick up first. He would respond to emails quickly. It's obvious that Lenny cares about his job and his clients, often working late at night to answer questions or work on a contract.
Lenny's greatest asset is his knowledge of the local area and housing market. I personally put a lot of value in experience, and it's obvious that Lenny has this in spades. We traveled to VA for a week on rather short notice and he was able to line up over 20 homes for us to see. He was great at taking our wants and filtering the listings to match our criteria. He was adept at 'seeing the little things' in a house that inexperienced home buyers might overlook. When we decided to put in an offer on a house he guided us through each step and explained the whole process in detail, beginning to end.
In short I highly recommend Lenny Marsh to any Coast Guard family moving to the area wishing to purchase, or rent, a home. He understands the challenges that we face and goes the extra mile. I look forward to working with him in the future.
~ Benjamin W. [Petty Officer Second Class, U.S.C.G]
Lenny Marsh was the best realtor we could have worked with! He was so flexible with my husband and I and was very helpful in finding us exactly what we wanted in a new home. I've found it pretty difficult to find people that were so nice since we moved to Virginia and it was so refreshing to meet someone who was so genuinely nice and wanted to help us. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment, townhouse, or home! ~ Beverly S. [USCG]
After retiring from the Army, I resettled in Northern VA. Someone referred me to Lenny Marsh and I've been thankful ever since. Lenny was highly professional, very knowledgeable and extremely patient, as we searched for a new home. We were picky buyers but he never quit looking until we found our ideal home. Time passes, but Lenny continues to treat me as a valued customer by staying in touch via useful newsletters that contain valuable information about the real estate market and ideas for home improvement and do-it-yourself projects. I highly recommend Lenny for anyone in the Northern VA area looking to buy a home. ~ Delvin S. [US Army Retired]
Lenny understands the difficulties of a military move. My wife and I have demanding jobs, and couldn't afford to be living out of a hotel for two or three weeks. We also couldn't afford multiple trips back and forth between my current duty assignment, and the National Capitol Region to find our new home.
We sent Lenny what we were looking for - location, price and square feet - and he sent us daily updates of the homes that qualified. After a couple of weeks, we had a dozen homes we wanted to look at. We flew in on one day, and narrowed the list from twelve to six. The next day we narrowed it to two, and with Lenny's help made an offer on our favorite. His advice helped us get our offer accepted.
I'd recommend Lenny Marsh to anyone house hunting in the D.C. area, whether it's your first move or, like us, your seventh. He made what is usually a stressful process, fun. ~ Thom Pentecost [Colonel US Army]
