Client Testimonials - What People are saying about their experience with Congressional relocation Team
"I was lucky enough to have crossed paths with Liza and Sean via my
Company’s relocation program. They were the most incredible Realtors to work
with. Not only were they able to read into my true needs for my home, to
deliver the perfect place for me, they also have remained in contact with me as
a resource for any additional needs that I have. I would highly recommend their
services to anyone looking for very humble and true professionals!!"

"The Congressional Relocation is just AMAZING!!! Sean and
Liza are the best. When I relocated to Maryland almost two years ago, Sean was
tasked with finding me an apartment. Unlike most real estate brokers that just
show you a list of apartments to make a sale, Sean took the time to understand
my wish list whether he gets a sale, then he gave me a tour of Maryland.
One year later, I again challenged Sean to find me a house. Teaming up with his partner Liza, they found me the perfect home and stuck with me throughout the purchase for 5 months. They also went out of their way to help me find contractors for renovation. For the Congressional Relocation Team, the client’s happiness is above everything. For that and everything else, I thank you. THIS IS MY REALTY DREAM TEAM FOR ALL MY FUTURE HOME PURCHASE!!!!!!"
"I listed my property though REMAX Congressional Relocation Services with
Liza Lapham as my realtor. I was amazed and impressed with how quickly and
efficiently Liza sold my Ocean City Md Condo! Since there were so many condos
for sale in OCMD, I thought it would take at least a year to sell; but I was
wrong. The condo was listed and within several days I had lookers and an offer.
Liza and her partner Sean did a thorough job of researching, and placed a good
market value on the condo. They quickly advertised in local as well as out of
the area websites and MLS listings. There were many lookers, and the condo was
sold at a reasonable price that I was very happy with! :)
Liza was on top of all of the closing costs for settlement, and everything went smoothly, and took maybe a half hour.
I am so thrilled with my realtor and I highly recommend her and her partner Sean to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!"
"Working with Sean and Liza was a splendid experience. Sean was
patient as we continued searching for our home for many months. Both Sean
and Liza are very knowledgeable and offered good advice and counsel every step
of the way; all the way to closing on our dream house. We especially
appreciate their honestly and expertise while always looking out for their
customer's best interests. I highly recommend both Sean and Liza for all
your reality needs."
"Working with Sean and Liza of the Congressional Relocation Team was the
best decision we made in our home buying process. Not only were they always
available to us and very attentive, but they were more than patient. Since we
were first time home buyers, it took us time to figure out what we really
wanted in a home and both Sean and Liza explained everything to us and afforded
us the time to figure out what we wanted. Once we found the house of our
dreams, they were great in negotiating the best deal possible and were highly
knowledgeable about the closing process. I would recommend Sean and Liza to
anyone looking to buy a house."

"We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Sean and
Liza. We were first-time home buyers with very little knowledge about how
to find the right place. We met with a couple of realtors before Sean, but we
knew instantly that he was the one for us. He is honest and very kind person,
helping us with a lot of time and dedication to get the house that we were
looking for and not a house to buy quick. It took several houses to go around
looking at the good and the bad and we didn't get the pressure with him to get
a home which wasn't the right one for us. We are enjoying our house and we have
only a big thanks to him and Liza because they were on our side at all times
and we got "our house."
"My husband and I bought our first house in 2013. We weren’t really sure what was on the market in our price range, but Sean and Liza worked with us to find the right house in our budget in an area we wanted to live in. In fact, they took us through the house three times while we decided to make an offer. Once we made the decision, they helped us with the home inspection, and even met with the contractors to make sure the work was done properly. We never had any issues because if one wasn’t available, the other was. It felt like we were working with a larger firm, because everything was done in a timely manner, they kept us appraised at every step, and we never had to play phone tag. Any question we had could be answered by either Sean or Liza. Even our lender commented on how quickly they got the necessary documentation to him. All and all it was a very positive experience and I would recommend Sean and Liza to my friends and family."

"From start to finish, Sean provided top-notch service. He was punctual, honest, and incredibly responsive during the entire process, answering my calls/texts no matter how late or early they were. An incredibly smooth process from start to finish, and will definitely be using him again."
"It's been a wonderful experience working Raj in finding a tenant for my townhouse. Raj is very knowledgable and guided me throughout the process. I will definitely engage his services for my future needs. I highly recommend him for others as well."
"We had a wonderful experience with Liza. We are new to Columbia, MD, so we really appreciated the benefit of her extensive experience in the region. She was attentive to our requirements in a home. We benefited from her insight on the local market. She gave great feedback on our selections, asked us the right questions and advocated for us along the way."
"Sean was recommended to us through my husband's place of work and we are very thankful that they did. As a first time home buyer and recently returned expat, I didn't know much at all about the process. Sean helped a lot with our education and was available basically all hours to answer questions! He viewed quite a few homes with us before we found and closed on the perfect one. The process wasn't stress-free (on the seller and mortgage broker side), but Sean made it a lot more manageable. On top of that, he makes really excellent homemade cider. Thanks, Sean!"
Rhys Brett Bowen and Maggie Erickson
"I would highly recommend Sean Blais to any friend or relative looking to buy or sell their home. I was very delighted with his high level of service, knowledge and professionalism. Sean works extremely hard and analyzes the market and my personal situation to ensure that I got the best price and fit to our requirements. Buying home can be stressful and emotional experience. With Sean as on my team, is both enjoyable and excellent experience."
"This is my second time using Sean to find a home. Once 4 years ago for a relocation and now to purchase my first home. Sean is thorough, well informed and a pleasure to work with."
"Sean has been an incredible part of not only our home search but home sale as well. He has been thorough from every aspect and keep us informed, prepared us with everything we needed to have ready and was available for all of our questions! He was dedicated to helping us find the right home and when we were getting ready to sell he told us exactly what we needed to do and it was exactly right, it only took 2 days of showings! If I could give more stars I would!"
Brian and Kirsten Cowley
"Outstanding real estate agent with 3 decades in the game. Helped me buy my house and was very considerate of all stipulations and was an expert in every instance. Highly recommend!"
"All my husband and I can say is a big THANK YOU. My husband and I were first time home buyers and It took us several months to find our dream home in the location that we wanted. At first we were discouraged because there were so many homes that we blindly fell in love with but Liza and Sean did their best to provide the best information on a home so we were not “stuck” with a badly constructed house. Because of the Congressional Real Estate dream team Liza and Sean, We will never forget to tell anyone in the process of buying a home to ask for Permits! Permits!! PERMITS!!! We were definitely blessed for them to help us day or night to give us the results we needed to weigh our pros and cons. Even at 1am when we were up all night trying to wrap our heads around what exactly we were doing, they were available to answer our questions. We were fortunate enough to purchase our dream home in a wonderful location in walking distance to our jobs. Thank you Liza and Sean for being the best team anyone could ask for!"
"Liza did an incredible job for me. She was actually my third agent. Because of the market at the time I bought, I had to look for a couple of years on and off before I found the house for me. If not for Liza, I couldn't have done it. She went out of her way to accommodate my hectic schedule and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. She helped me understand things and made me feel confident going in to the sale. I chose Liza because she actually helped me look for a place to rent when I first moved to the area back in 2013. You can't do better than Liza, folks. She's something special."
"In this business, you need someone you can trust. Sean is trustworthy and holds himself to a high standard. he is very ethical and honest. I used his service to rent an apartment, I used his service to buy a home, I used his service to sell that same home, I used his service to buy another home. In all cases, i was happy with the outcome. Highly recommended."
"Mr. Sean is very resourceful and highly knowledgeable in matters of real estate. He gives all his energy and time to make sure that his clients are fully satisfied in whatever the decision that they make. From the very first time i met him, Sean was always available in all levels; search all the way to the settlement. He would always pick us up and drive around to view different properties and he never gave up even when we never showed interest in a given property. We eventually settled on constructing a new home after failing to get what we needed. Mr Seam would often visit the construction site in our absence to make sure all was going on well with our project and update us accordingly. Mr. Sean has the energy, dedication and zeal for his work that i find missing in majority of real estate agents i met before. Mr. Sean turned our worries and frustrations into the bundles of joy within the three months we met with him. Unlike majority of the Agents, Sean will start the process with two hours of intensive and thorough training in his office about the whole process. After this training session with him, it was without no doubt that Sean was the Man to work with. Without further hesitation, we committed to chose him as our Agent. Mr. Sean not only helps his clients to secure the properties of their interest, but helps in educating his clients on important knowledge that they need to have i the whole process. Besides settling in our dream home; i feel very knowledgeable about many aspects of real estate that i didn't know in the beginning. I therefore strongly and without any iota of reservation recommend Mr Sean to any Buyer seeking Agent to help in the process buying a home. You will never regret of choosing this gentleman! Just tell him what you want and he will deliver! We love you Sean:)) "
"My husband and I can not say enough great things about Sean Blais. He handled both renting and selling our house which can obviously be a very stressful endeavor, Sean's demeanor and personality made both experiences incredibly calm and peaceful, always with the knowledge he would take care of everything. Sean ALWAYS went above and beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend him, as we are eternally grateful. Next house purchase, he's our man. Do not hesitate to choose him and the company he represents. They are truly professionals."
"I am very impressed with Sean. He is responsive in communicating with all issues from cleaning maintenance to recommending a handyman and a Contractor to renovate my kitchen cabinet to my condo unit prior to putting it on the Market. Sean takes initiatives to find Contractors and negotiate for the best price for the job prior to providing multiple options to best fit my budget. I am truly impressed with his dedication, professionalism, and ability to communicate while I reside in Chicago. I highly recommend Mr. Sean Blais as your Associate Broker from Re/max Town Center."
"I had the pleasure of meeting Liza and Sean back in 2013 when my company relocated me from Florida to Washington DC. They helped me to secure a beautiful rental condo in Kingstowne, during my first year, and then proceeded to help me with purchasing a house a year later. I consider them to be the best of the best and would highly recommend their services. Purchasing a home is a big deal and a huge expense, so you need Realtors who have your best interest at heart!! Stellar team!!"
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Raj Sachdeva. He was patient, professional and informed and he definitely earned our trust by both listening to our concerns and offering sound advice throughout the time we were on the housing market. He guided us through the process and was always available to answer any questions we had. We trusted his judgment when we made the decision to buy and he walked us through the entire process in a timely and detail-oriented fashion. Raj is a solid communicator and his knowledge of housing market and ability to negotiate effectively on our behalf made the entire process as stress-free as possible. If we are ever on the housing market again, we look forward to the opportunity of working with him."
"I am first home buyer. At first I didn't know how to start so I need someone to help. Friend of family recommend this team. So I start working with them. I had no idea about the procedures. They open my eyes and got me a great house. I had great experience with Congressional Relocation Team. They are really helpful, understanding and patience. I recommend them to everyone."
"I worked with Liza Lapham to rent a townhouse, and she was on top of things from start to finish. She had a great knowledge of the the areas we were looking in, was able to connect quickly with the listing agent when we found a place we liked, and stayed with us all the way to the end to make sure we got everything we wanted and needed. Would highly recommend for anyone looking in the area they cover!"
"I have had nothing but excellent experiences when working with Sean. He has helped my wife and I sell a home, and also put us in our current rental. When selling our home, he helped us get the best possible price and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. CRT took care of the hard work, so we were able to focus on various other tasks for the upcoming move. When searching for our current rental, we told him what we were looking for, and it didn't take him more than a day to find us the perfect place. Sean pays attention to detail and will do what it takes to make sure that you are completely satisfied. I will continue to use CRT for all of my real estate needs, and I would highly recommend them to anyone reading this."
"I needed a house to allow my elderly parents to move in. Liza found a perfect house to accommodate everyone. The home was the best maintained house I have ever seen as well. The process was smooth even though the home inspector found a few things to fix. Thanks so much!"
"My husband and I used Congressional Relocation Team to buy our first house. As first time home buyers, we had a long list of what we wanted in a house, and Sean Blais worked with us to figure out what were "needs" and what were "wants." He then showed us multiple listings around our work schedules and listened to what we liked and what we disliked about the homes. Sean and Liza would email listings to us so my husband and I could decide which houses we wanted to see, and didn't waste our time with places that didn't meet our needs or were out of our price range. One of the really nice things was if Sean was unavailable, his partner Liza was able to step in and show us some listings. We were also able to call the office any time and get an answer to a question because Sean and Liza shared information with each other, so they both knew which properties we looked at. Once we found the house we wanted (and went back two other times), he helped us with getting a home inspection, then made sure the work was done. Sean and Liza also worked with our mortgage lender to make sure all documentation was turned in on time. On the day of our closing, both Sean and Liza did the final walk thru of the house with us, then over lunch explained how our closing would go. I though it would be difficult to find a house in our price range that met all of our needs, and still have most of the "wants," but Sean and Liza proved me wrong, and I couldn't be happier. I will definitely use them again if I decide to sell and buy another house."
"Very professional, extremely honest, and responsive. I highly recommend them for any real estate or relocation needs. I had a townhouse that needed a tenant asap. We could afford to float the house for only one month and it needed some work. The friendly folks from Congressional came in, helped me find some contractors to do some upgrades, managed the whole reno process as I was working / traveling, got everything done within three weeks, and then was able to rent it in the last week of my window for $300 more a month than we had previously been asking."
"We could not be more happy and satisfied by a Realtor than Sean Blais . He was there to guide us through out our journey of finding our dream house. He has proven to be the best person to trust when it comes to either buying or renting your property. We have been working with him from nearly a decade, Never had a problem , Always have all the answers and clarified all the doubts in any given situation. Looking forward to do more business with him and Congressional Relocation Team. Keep it up."
"Sean and Liza did a great job helping me buy a new home and sell my current one. This is actually the second time I leveraged their services for buying a home. They are very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the sales process, and always had my best interests in mind. They also did a fantastic job helping me prepare my old home for sale and were able to get it sold in 4 days at the price I was hoping for. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a buyer or seller's agent."
"Co-Brokers Sean Blais and Liza Lapham are top notch in their profession! I've had the pleasure to work with them on the purchase of my condo in April 2013 and again in December 2013 when they assisted my mother with her relocation back to Maryland. Sean and Liza immediately make you feel at ease and you quickly sense that they work hard to understand your needs and ensure you are provided with quality, professional service. As area natives, Sean and Liza really have a good edge in finding the right home, in the right neighborhood for you. I would reccommend them without any hesitation or reservation!!!"
