If you’ve decided to embark on your home buying journey, it’s time to schedule a free consultation with a Go Brent agent. Once we have a sense of your ideal home, we’ll ensure you’re aware of the best available properties in your desired area, price range, and location.

As well-connected experts, we’ll be in touch with other agents and may learn of new listings before they hit the market. And yes, while home searches on the internet can be fun, it can also be a time suck for you. Let us work on your behalf – we’ll send you on-going property and neighborhood updates, plus offer you flexibility for scheduling appointments.

Then when you find “the one,” you can count on our strong command of the sales contract; we’ll prepare a solid offer, minimize your risk, and negotiate on your behalf.

This year, we’ve worked with 50 clients who have purchased homes in Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Kensington, Rockville, Potomac, and Gaithersburg. We’ve helped first-time homebuyers, clients purchasing larger “move-up” homes, as well as clients who are downsizing.  And if you are thinking of simultaneously buying a new home and selling your current home, we can assist with that too.

When you choose Go Brent, you’ll work with a full-time agent with an unrivaled command of the local market.

Staging Sells!

Go Brent offers clients complimentary staging!

Our staging strategy has been honed over the last 15+ years and focuses on transforming a property into a welcoming, enticing space to attract the largest pool of potential buyers thereby resulting in a quicker sale for the highest possible price for our sellers!

Over the past decade, we’ve built a substantial inventory of furniture, rugs, books and general décor to lend to clients. Years of experience arranging furniture in all types of homes, plus a retail background in home furnishings and décor merchandising, gives a strong base of knowledge.

Our complimentary service includes furniture, décor as well as the labor! This represents a significant cost savings for sellers.

We also work with clients to evaluate existing furniture placement and assist with a plan to declutter and depersonalize the home prior to listing for sale.

Go Brent Lists Historic Montgomery County Home

Go Brent is proud to list 605 St. Andrews Lane in the Silver Spring neighborhood of North Hills.

The Louis L. Brunett House was originally constructed circa 1864. This unique historic home is on the market for only the second time in 70 years. The original house was substantially remodeled in 1939 in an eclectic Neoclassical Revival design. The Brunett House has local architectural and historical significance and is listed as a Historic Site in the Montgomery County Master Plan for Historic Preservation.

This urban oasis is an engaging combination of charming architectural detail and modern convenience. The front porch with double entry doors beckons you inside to the main level offering rooms of gracious proportions with wonderful flow. There is a grand living room with working fireplace, custom bar room, formal dining room, powder room, and renovated kitchen with granite counters and breakfast room with working fireplace. The family room, at the rear of the home, offers a separate entryway to the driveway and yard. From this room there are stairs to the upper level media room. Two screened porches on either side of the home extend your living space outdoors. Details of note include floor to ceiling windows, period moldings, high ceilings, and hardwood floors on all three above ground levels.

From the main hall, the handsome staircase leads to the second level featuring a Master bedroom and bathroom, three additional large bedrooms, and a full bath located off the center hallway. On the third level, there are two additional bedrooms and another full bathroom.

The home is nestled on a hill above the quiet one-way street on a generous lot featuring mature trees and landscaping and beautiful gardens. The property offers walkways, stone/brick walls, and a spacious stone patio. The crowning jewel is the outdoor kitchen and deck. Inside and out, this home provides a wonderful venue for entertaining.

The location is ideal. You are inside the Beltway and just steps to Sligo Creek Park. Walk a few blocks to downtown Silver Spring and enjoy restaurants, shops, Whole Foods, the year-round FRESHFARM farmers market, and entertainment venues including The Fillmore and AFI Silver Theatre. Commuting is simple – you’re just a mile walk or drive to the Silver Spring Transit Center with Metro and MARC trains. You also have quick access to area buses, the Beltway and major commuter routes.
