My husband and I recently had the opportunity to work with the talented and very well-connected Marsha Schuman. Marsha employed her wisdom and professionalism to help us sell our primary home in Potomac, MD, and a rental property in Bethesda, MD. She also represented us as our buyer’s agent in the purchase of our current residence in Bethesda as well. Of note is that all of this was accomplished within just several weeks.
With her methodical but collaborative approach, coupled with her top-notch team of associates for pricing, staging, photography, et al, you know that you’re in the hands of a true real estate professional! The brochure on our primary residence was absolutely beautiful, although it wasn’t needed, as Marsha sold our home for full price in just one day. This was facilitated by her understanding of the market and her network within the industry. This network led her to contact a particular agent who she was convinced would likely have buyers for a home in the type, style, and price that we were selling. And sure enough, she was absolutely correct. When it came to our rental property, Marsha reached out to her network in the homebuilders’ community and quickly connected with one who was willing to pay our price and close quickly.
Between the sale of our residence and the close, my husband and I came upon a house that we felt would be our perfect next home. By the volume of the open house traffic and the attractiveness of the property, which backed up to parkland, we knew that we would face lots of competition! And, as expected, there were 10 offers. Marsha coached us through the process and positioned us to win without over-paying. What a whirlwind; but with Marsha Schuman at the helm, we were three-time
You guys were the most professional, competent, organized brokerage team I have ever seen. We do not have an analog to this in Chicago. I would recommend you to anybody, and I regret that for even one fleeting minute last year I was actually considering [another real estate team].
Thank you for everything. I was going to recommend that the title agent leave a tip on the brokerage statement, but I got tied up in a series of meetings and forgot. I will have to make it up to you.
I highly recommend the mother-daughter team of Betsy & Marsha Schuman. Not only were they were both knowledgeable about our property and the ever-changing housing market but they also gave us the best customer service and were always available by either phone or email to address our needs. Before our house was ready to be put back on the market, both Betsy and Marsha had excellent suggestions and were able to provide us with the right people to do the work. Thank you for making our transaction as smooth and stress-free as possible.
My husband, Andy and I are very pleased to endorse Betsy Schuman Dodek as one of the most professional and caring realtors we've had the opportunity to work with. She and Marsha Schuman were with us from start to finish, and beyond as we transitioned out of our home of 16 years. We count her as a friend and trusted advisor. We're very confident in our endorsement and highly recommend you meeting The Schuman Team!
To anyone looking for a real estate agent —
We cannot express in words how highly we recommend Betsy as your agent. We fell in love with her as we were going to open houses. Not only is she very educated about homes in the area and real estate dos and don'ts, she is charming and fun to be with. She quickly understood what we were looking for and aggressively pursued options both on and off the market, giving us advice and access to resources to make a decision and purchase we would be happy with for many years to come. We've dealt with many real estate agents in the past, and Betsy was absolutely the best we've encountered. She always made herself available for whatever we needed, whenever we needed it. To say she goes the extra mile is an understatement.
We strongly recommend using Betsy to buy or sell. She is tremendously talented and extremely knowledgeable. We've enjoyed our search for a new home and have appreciated having the new friend in our life.

I highly recommend The Schuman Team! Betsy and Marsha helped our family move into a wonderful house in the Fallsgrove community in Rockville, MD, community and also sold our house in Potomac. They made the entire process smooth and were very responsive, patient, and knowledgeable. They were always willing to go the extra mile and even helped move some paintings during the move! We enjoyed working with Betsy and Marsha very much and would highly recommend them to other prospective home buyers or sellers.
