Tell Us Your Story

Terry is fantastic!

She is incredibly knowledgeable, kind, understanding, and patient. She was the realtor that helped me buy my home and was the obvious choice when the time came for me to sell it. She gave wonderful advice to help me prepare the house for sale and was thoughtful and communicative the whole way through the selling process. I could not have been happier with the process and I’m so thankful for all of Terry’s hard work. I highly recommend her!

Alicia

I am so fortunate to have had her in my corner!

Kat will listen to you to ensure your needs are met (and exceeded), she takes care of all of your worries, and keeps you informed throughout the process! When I was ready, we discussed the plan and she took off running —She quickly made my house look wonderful, the photos were amazing and my house got so much immediate attention that we had 7 offers within 5 days on the market! Kat provided top-notch service and expertise and earned the highest recommendation I can give!

Doreen

Meg did an outstanding job listening to my needs and finding a house to turn into a home.

As a first-time home buyer, Meg helped me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend choosing Meg or anyone on the Welcome Home Realty Group Team for your next move.

Carley R

I recently had the pleasure of working with Terry La Scola and Jessica Hinkle from Welcome Home Realty Group.

From the outset of my home buying process to its wonderful conclusion, they were exceedingly knowledgeable, responsive, supportive, and professional. I am so grateful to have benefited from their expertise and counsel during this uniquely challenging experience.

Joe and Ashley

Kat Royer is an incredible realtor, the best I have ever worked with.

She is friendly, professional, and really knows the real estate market. Further, she is always on top of things, keeping everything on schedule; she seems to always be working and makes her customers feel like they are very important. Her advice during the buying and selling process is invaluable. She will tell you what she thinks and the why behind it; which I really appreciate. She has worked with us on both buying and selling a townhouse in the Frederick area. I was especially impressed with her staging help and photography of our home when we put it on the market to sell. No doubt this hard work paid off as we were flooded with interest and had an offer very quickly. We are trying to convince her to relocate to Florida so we can use her again in the future. After working with her it is very hard to work with other realtors. Once you work with someone as top notch as Kat, it is very hard to work with the rest.

Mei

Terry & her team did a remarkable job selling our home during these unprecedented times with the Covid-19 pandemic and the severe economic downturn.

Terry was generous with her time & efforts, and provided superb guidance. She also took special care in listening to, and more importantly, abiding by our concerns. Compared to other brokers and agents we have used in the past, Terry more than earned her compensation. Terry truly understands the market. My wife & I highly recommend Terry to sell & buy your next home. Thank you, Terry. Keep up the good work.

I worked directly with Roger Franks who is an outstanding realtor on the team.

I can't say enough good things about Roger - he is attentive, measured, and extremely kind. We looked at a lot of homes and he was responsive to all of my questions especially in this seller's market that we have. The process was made considerably less stressful by Roger's efforts. I truly appreciate all of his work and from Welcome Home Realty.

Prashant

Terry and her assistant were very helpful throughout the process.

We were always kept informed and everything went very smoothly. Very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you so much for everything!

Emma

Roger was great throughout this process of buying a house.

We used Roger a couple of years ago when we were looking to rent a place and we enjoyed working with him then, so decided to work with him again to purchase a house. He was patient, responsive, and very informative and l believe all those factors helped us secure our home in this crazy market. I would recommend Roger to anyone.

Terry has represented and advised us buying and selling properties/houses over the years.

She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge. Her loyalty and counsel are welcome in any kind of market. And as always she makes the entire experience seem effortless yielding solid results. Always a pleasure!

Jennifer Burns was simply amazing!

! She made the process so easy for us and always worked with our schedules when touring houses. She genuinely cares about your interests and concerns which made picking where I wanted to live a lot more relaxing. Thank you so much Jennifer!

Stephanie

Terry and her team made the selling process simple and stress-free.

They were an absolute delight to work alongside. She is an experienced professional who treats her clients as if each one of them is special. I highly recommend her as a real estate professional. In my opinion, every real estate agent should strive to emulate her skills. I sincerely thank her and her team for all their efforts regarding the sale of our home.

Irene

Terry La Scola handled the sale of my home in June of 2021.

Having used her services before in a prior purchase in 2010 and sale in 2011, was why I was a return customer. Her impeccable attention to detail, anticipating all possible roadblocks, and dutifully ensuring I was a satisfied client puts her way ahead of the pack. Even in this "sellers" market contracts can become a log jam if they are not negotiated and executed properly. In my case, I had multiple offers but I didn't take the highest offer given the complex litany of issues it would have presented. Issues Terry was able to decipher. As a result, the sale and closing were completed without a hitch and occurred 8 days early. Hence, I highly recommend her for all your real estate purchase and sale needs.

We can’t say enough good about Welcome Home Realty!

Kat Royer and Terry Lascola came highly recommended and they did not disappoint! Terry sold our house in a short period of time and for an amount we were very happy with. We had a ton of confidence in her. She was very professional but also very warm and genuine. We gave Kat Royer a run for her money. It took months to find our perfect home. There were so many hiccups that she had to navigate through due to foreclosures, banks etc... but she handled them all like a champ! She was very knowledgeable and upbeat and more than willing to help us find exactly what we were looking for. We definitely found our dream home and we have her to thank for helping us through a very challenging time. Thanks Kat and Terry, we are so grateful.❤️Jill and Rob

My wife and I used Welcome Home and they are the absolute best.

They have their finger on the pulse of the market like you wouldn't believe. Kat listened to us, really listened and then informed and guided us through the whole process. I really felt like they were a powerful ally in buying our first home, and friends by the end. I can't recommend them enough.

Kat Royer and the Welcome Home Realty team were fantastic to work with!

As a first-time homebuyer with a very specific wish list, Kat made navigating the crazy pandemic real estate market as easy as possible. She's knowledgeable, responsive, friendly, patient, and organized everything I needed for a smooth closing once we found a place that checked all my boxes. Thanks, Kat!!

Autumn

Meg was wonderful to work with!

She was professional, kind, thorough, patient, understanding and willing to listen to my wants and needs. She helped me find a house that checked off every box on my list, which I didn’t think would be possible! She’s great and I highly recommend her.

Alicia C

My family and I recently needed to find a place to rent.

With two dogs, one of whom is large, the process wasn’t easy, and we were turned away from many places because of our dogs. Our agent, Roger Franks, didn’t give up on us, though, and he worked diligently to find us a place as it came down to the wire. He happily showed us homes whenever we asked, many of them with hardly any notice. Best of all, he prayed with and for us which I believe played a strong part in us finally being approved to rent a place that’s perfect for us and our beloved pups. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to help us through the whole process. Roger will work hard for you but more importantly, he will care, and you can’t always find that in today’s busy and cut-throat market. We’re so thankful to him for helping us find our perfect home!

Matt

We were extremely fortunate to have found Terry.

From the planning steps for the sale to the final paperwork stages we were supported by Terry and her office team as if we were always her primary concern. She understood the unique qualities of our quirky cabin and advocated for the property as if she were the homeowner herself. We had relocated to the opposite side of the country and she assumed the unofficial role as the de facto property manager in our absence. She coordinated and oversaw a few small maintenance issues that we were unable to do ourselves. This way way beyond what we would have expected from her but she was more than happy to assist in any way possible. Terry is the ultimate professional and we felt we had the best of friends helping us to sell our beloved home. We can’t possibly thank her enough.

Peter and Lori

Kat Royer is AMAZING!

!! She is so easy to work with and is very knowledgeable. She made what seemed like it was going to be a stressful home-selling situation into one that was stress-free. She was also very responsive and was incredibly easy to work with. I would highly recommend her.

Prashant

Terry La Scola is the most knowledgeable, tactical, caring, responsive, and passionate realtor/broker in the Frederick County area.

I have worked with her twice. Once back in 2012 when we bought our first house and then for the past few years patiently looking for the right home to upgrade to with our three kids. Terry helped us sell our home, but not only that, we sold for way more than expected. We had a few neighbors in a row with identical townhouses and we sold for quite a bit more than our neighbors due to Terry’s expertise, planning, and staging. Terry and Jessica Hinkle both helped us on the purchasing side in 2021. You will find they respond immediately and are ready to help with whatever is needed. Jessica also has extensive expertise. There is no question this team cannot answer. They also have an extensive list of contacts, contractors, and handymen for any job whether it be painting, floors, walls, plumbing, electrical, etc. You are always treated like their number one customer. If it was not for Terry, Jessica, and the team at the office, we would not have gotten our contract in on time on the house we bought. We saw the house we bought just two hours before final offers were due and they go the offer in before the deadline. They also made the house settlement for both sale and purchase go very smoothly. This is the dream team of realtors. You will be very pleased if you choose Welcome Home Realty Group.

Terry and the team at Welcome Home are the very best!

Terry is thorough, professional, and great to work with. She is honest and forthright. We feel our investments are safe under Terry’s watchful eye. She’s been there for us every step of the way. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I am so thankful to have been able to work with Meg to purchase our new home!

She listened to what we wanted to find, answered all of my questions along the way, and was very responsive and informative throughout the process.

Gen S.

We had a great experience buying our first home with Welcome Home Realty Group.

Kat Royer helped us through every step of the process so we felt comfortable with everything. We were new to Frederick and she helped us find great listings to view and set up super productive days of shopping. We knew nothing about the home buying process and she made it easy for us. We found and closed on the perfect home on a short timeframe and we couldn't be happier. I would recommend Kat and Welcome Home Realty Group to anyone looking to buy a home!

Jon H.

I was very pleased with the Welcome Home Realty group in Frederick particularly my agent Jennifer Burns.

Jennifer exceeded my expectations as our realtor, she constantly communicated and provided updates to me during the sale of my home. Even though the house went on sale during the winter months she was able to move it relatively quickly and find us a buyer. Her level of dedication was unsurpassed. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone that will like their house sold quickly and professionally. She provided the best advice and we were able to sell the house. Thank you, Jennifer, you are the best!!!

We put our town-home on the market in summer 2017 with a known and a famous real estate company in the Frederick area.

We had worst experience dealing with unresponsiveness and disrespect. We took the listing off in July. We did our due diligence, searched and interviewed many realtors and zeroed on Welcome Home Realty Group. Our listing agent was Jennifer Burns. We started working with her in late October and put the property up on the Market on November 17th. The photography of the whole townhome was on point, neat, and highly effective when it came to generating interest in the market. We got an offer on the very first day. However, it fell apart on 11th day due to the buyer backing out. However, we were extremely optimistic that the town-home would sell. After the fall out, Jennifer and the whole Welcome Home Realty group were extremely responsive and were spot on with communication. We had another offer on the table on December 15th and it was a solid one. Throughout this process, Jennifer was there with us till the very day when we were on the settlement table. She not only got our townhome sold within 30 days of the listed date, but also got us more than the listed price. This was like the icing on the cake. There are real estate brokers out there who think they are entitled for high commission fees just because of the name fame their respective companies carry. The marketing they do is pathetic and have a million-dollar attitude, just because they sell million-dollar homes. However, at Welcome Home, neither did I see that attitude or that entitlement. They are a bunch of closely knit realtors who listen to their clients, work with them throughout the process and make sure their voices are heard. I will gladly use Welcome Home Realty group again for my real estate needs and will recommend them to my peers as well. I cannot thank them enough.

Chetan and Anu

Meg is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with.

When we started our journey we were going a different route. However, Meg didn't just hear what we had to say, she listened. Ultimately pushing us to a different route that best suited our wants and needs. Meg went above and beyond every time, taking care of our most tiny needs without hesitation. She was extremely professional and understanding throughout the whole process. I will continue to recommend Meg as she is the definition of best in the field.

Autumn

We are so thankful that we were able to work with Terry in the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.

She was patient with us as we embarked on the journey of selling our home. She guided us as we prepared to list our home and encouraged us when we were discouraged. She listened to us and helped us navigate a difficult market. She pushed us when we needed to be pushed and fought hard for us when we needed an advocate. She is a wise counselor and a steady advisor. We are so grateful to be in our new home and would recommend Terry to anyone looking for a realtor.

Ann and Ivan

Jessica Maurice and the team at Welcome Home Realty were an absolute joy to work with.

My partner and I were nervous, confused, and overwhelmed first-time homebuyers who needed a lot of help navigating the process. Jessica was incredibly responsive, helped us hone in on what we needed, and provided clear, useful advice as we figured out the different kinds of offers, how to bid, and all the other stuff that goes along with buying a home. Our housing search took time and Jessica never made us feel like we were wasting hers or that we weren't worth her attention despite our relatively limited budget. I cannot sing Jessica's praises highly enough, especially for folks new to the home-buying process. She was a true professional who nevertheless made us feel comfortable. It was like working with a friend (just a friend with a lot more experience and knowledge). Also, Jessica and the entire Welcome Home team was really great about COVID precautions. We did the bulk of our search during some of the pandemic's worst phases and always felt comfortable because she was masked and respected our comfort levels given our various risk factors. When we needed to sign papers, she worked with us to find outside solutions.

Ashley

Really good experience, Terry has the best teamwork they give you the best and smoothest process of the selling or buying.

I would highly recommend using her services to everyone.

Terry is an excellent agent and person, and knows the housing market well.

We hit some rough spots due to Covid-19 pandemic, but Terry kept on pushing through, even our escrow was difficult with many issues, but nonetheless, she helped carry the sale through

Being a first-time homebuyer, you have no idea what you are doing.

Meg was there every step of the way and took the time to explain everything to us! She helped scope out homes that we were interested in and always had our interest at hand. She was very responsive and professional! I would recommend Meg and Welcome Home Realty Group to all of my friends and family! I hope to work with her again in the future!

Anecia W

Jennifer - We couldn't have done it without you!

You made everything so seamless and smooth. Our lives are all over the place with scheduling and we like to overthink just about everything. You gave us the gentle nudge and guidance we needed to feel confident in our decision. Sincerely, thank you so much for all your help! You are amazing!

Allie and Vanessa

We recently bought a town home in the Ballenger creek area in Frederick with the help of our realtor Roger Frank.

He was with us from the initial viewing of the town house to advising a strategy of submitting offers based on his experience and final purchase of the home. We would not have been able to buy our dream home without Roger's help. Thank you!

Yohannes

Kat Royer is AMAZING.

During the house-hunting process we lived in Indiana - so Kat literally went above and beyond. She helped us find a house in a very competitive market and we weren't even in the same state. Kat is patient, kind, knowledgeable, and funny. If everyone is as terrific as Kat, then we really look forward to living in Maryland. Would highly recommend Kat as a realtor. We have moved several times over the years so we have worked with many agents both from a buyer and seller perspective - and hands down, Kat is the best!

Roger was so great in helping my mother purchase her condo.

Roger was knowledgeable and was able to answer every question we had. He kept us up to date with every detail throughout the process. Since my mother is new to the area and a very nervous driver, Roger went above and beyond to help her. He personally drove my mother to her home inspection, walk-through, settlement and more. Although there were some unforeseen issues on the sellers end, Roger helped ease our stress and keep things running smoothly. Roger was not only our realtor but he has also become a friend. We highly recommend Roger to anyone!

Marie

Jennifer Burns and Terry Lascola from the Welcome Home Realty Group helped me sell my home.

They were very knowledgeable in every aspect of my home selling process. Jennifer and the Welcome Home group team guided us to a successful process from start to finish. We had some anxiety about selling and they kept us calm and got us through it. I was so pleased with them that I hired them to help me purchase my new home. Great job Welcome Home Group!!

Erick

We really had no idea what to expect when trying to buy our first home and Jennifer was super helpful in explaining all the ins and outs to us.

We found a wonderful place after just our 2nd day and just closed! Super grateful to work with such a wonderful professional. Thank you Jennifer!

Gillian

Terry and her team are excellent.

They had the experience necessary to anticipate and prepare for problems and issues with selling my home. They knew what was needed to get the best sales price and kept things running smoothly all the way up to closing. So glad to have Terry to get thru selling my home during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We were fortunate enough to come across Kat Royer through our research for the best possible realtor to help us navigate an out-of-state purchase in a town we’d never visited.

We were relocating for work, and had a tight timetable to work with (during COVID no less), and every online search variation we tried kept pointing us to Welcome Home Realty. Their reviews as a Realty Group were stellar, and Kat was one of the standouts among those named best to work with. Within the hour we were working with Kat, and could not be happier with our decision. Kat was very thoughtful and detail-oriented, and meeting with her was as easy as talking to a friend about upcoming house plans. She took our must-haves list to heart and, during a pandemic no less, was able to find us our dream home the first day we went house-hunting together. Something that checked all our boxes was coming soon onto the market, and Kat was able to act quickly to schedule us as the first showing-the rest is history. We were simultaneously listing our move-out home in a different state, so were very limited on our availability, especially give that this was the middle of COVID lockdown. Kat was able to negotiate in our favor every step of the way, going above and beyond to organize every milestone so we could focus on packing. She made excellent suggestions on the best vendors for every part of the process, scheduled everything on our behalf, and gave us the smoothest settlement possible in a very volatile market. She is clearly selective in the teams she associates with, as all the folks she recommended extended us every courtesy throughout the process. I can honestly say that my wife and I would not be in our dream house today if we had gone with anyone else-could not be more satisfied with Kat and her team!
