"Lenore Rubino was an absolutely wonderful agent to work with. She provided constant information updating us with changes in the market, as well as practical information on how to stage and prepare our home for sale. With her advice and insights into our local market, we had multiple offers within the first 48 hours our home was on the market and an impressive offer that we accepted. Lenore was on top of the entire process, very responsive and always available and listened carefully if we had questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Lenore Rubino for anyone looking for real estate in DC or looking to sell. Without exception, she exhibited professionalism, wide experience and knowledge, patience, and grace under pressure. With Lenore's guidance we were able to have an exceptional real estate experience!"

"During 2016, and the early months of 2017, I engaged in three separate real estate contracts with Ms. Lenore Rubino and Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. Each of the contracts dealt with distinct projects and required different skills and expertise. Ms. Rubino excelled in all three projects and exceeded all of my expectations. The first sale, a condo in Dupont Circle, was to be a home for my son. Lenore understood the best way to develop a contract, since the apartment had other interested potential buyers. The second sale was the result of the need for a different living arrangement. Lenore spent hours researching possibilities and showing us many of them. When the appropriate house presented itself, Lenore moved quickly to guide us in making a successful offer. The final project, the preparation of our house of thirty-three years in NW Washington, DC, for sale, required a tremendous amount of energy. She is the consummate professional, and I would highly recommend Lenore."
"Lenore Rubino is a professional realtor above and beyond compare. The level of service that she and her team provide is astounding. She helped us with both a D.C. sale and a Bethesda, Md purchase. On the sale-side she had fantastic recommendations about how to prepare the home. If your home needs repairs, Lenore has an extensive network of high quality contractors that respond immediately to her calls. Lenore prices properties appropriately to attract a competitive scenario and when the offers come in she understands how to help you manage your risks and maximize profit. Once the offer has been accepted, Lenore and her team follows up on the process to ensure the deal is completed. On the buy-side Lenore referred us to a great bank that provided excellent service. Subsequently, Lenore kept us well informed about available inventory. When we decided upon the right home to purchase Lenore helped us design an offer that was attractive to the sellers in a competitive bidding environment. "

"I would recommend Lenore Rubino with great enthusiasm. Over the course of approximately four months, she helped me find a residence in the D.C. area. As we viewed over a dozen properties, she was an excellent listener and worked tirelessly to guide me. Without exception, she exhibited professionalism, wide experience and knowledge, patience, and grace under pressure. Real estate transactions can be a rocky road, but I barely noticed the bumps. In a gentle, down-to-earth manner, she was able to balance my needs with straight-forward assessments of what was possible, and not possible. She will get you to where you want to be, and you would do well to hire her."

"Lenore represented my wife and me in the purchase of a historic home in Georgetown. The home was caught up in a number of technical issues on the sellers' side, and the process was quite complicated. Throughout the buying process, Lenore was a gem - always on the ball, helping us through every complication, and going above and beyond in every way. Besides being a talented professional, she's incredibly friendly - and we are now happy to consider her a friend. We most highly recommend Lenore Rubino to anyone looking for a Realtor in the DC area."
