Words From Our Clients

I have known Stephen Ferrandi and been involved with him in multiple real estate transactions for many years. I have referred several of my most valuable clients to him for his representation of their real estate needs. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending him in any real estate matter. His real estate experience and advice are of the highest quality that I could recommend.

I have known and dealt with Stephen for the larger part of my development career and have consistently found Stephen to be a true professional. More specifically, he is knowledgeable, well informed through extensive market research, courteous, organized, persistent but not pushy with good follow up technique. Probably the most important attribute that Stephen brings to a project is “effectiveness”. In short………. Steve gets the job done……obtaining the highest and best price for his client. I would highly recommend Stephen for marketing any development project.

Stephen J. Ferrandi is in an enviable position: He's got the gold - and he knows it. The gold in this case are the large land parcels the real estate agent is selling for 25 clients. Typically, his clients are farmers who are selling land that's been in their families for generations. And its Ferrandi's job...to find a developer with the deepest pockets possible.

I have worked with Stephen for many years on a variety of residential and institutional projects in the Baltimore Metropolitan area. Some of the projects were very difficult, but Stephen managed the real estate transactional component very well on behalf of his clients. He was able to work well with attorneys on both sides of the table as well as with engineers and experts, not to mention the principals guiding them to a final closing on the property. Stephen knows that few projects today do not involve land use and environmental issues, which need to be navigated with care and cost sensitivity. Resolution of these issues requires extensive knowledge of the properties and area and experience in working with experts in the relevant topics. His knowledge of the area, experience in handling complex transactions and demeanor enable him to serve his clients effectively and efficiently.

Stephen, allow me to compliment you. You are a great land broker. You fought for every penny for your client, the Nixon Family and made sure I knew it. You protected their interested and served them well, but always as the buyer, I felt that you treated me equally with respect and an appreciation for my view point throughout the many months of negotiations. I know that we still have three years of processing before the Nixon Farm is a Centex community and that we will be working closely together to make that happen, but I think we should celebrate the contract signing of a $17,000,000 land contract with a beer. Your treat!

I wanted to write you to thank you again for all of the time you spent making sure that everything would go smoothly. As you assured me, you got me a great price. During our many phone calls you explained all of my options and even flew out to meet with me in Las Vegas to discuss the many offers you obtained on my land the day after they came in. You are a true professional. If I owned any more land in Maryland, I’d surely have you represent me again, too bad you don’t want to move to Nevada.

I want to thank you for selling our family farm. You invested three years side by side with me as our purchaser Beazer Homes processed plans through subdivision. You were always there for me to answer my questions, hear my complaints or simply sit on the porch and re-assure me over a glass of sweet tea that everything would turn out fine. In the end, it did. Thanks for a job well done."

During the past ten years I have successfully worked with Stephen Ferrandi as my real estate broker to handle the disposition of my real estate holdings. He has successfully worked for me handling the disposition of both transfer development rights (TDR’s) and a 21 acre parcel of ground in Howard County, Maryland. I hold him in the highest regard and wish him and Josh Halbedel continued success in the land brokerage business.

I've worked with Stephen Ferrandi for over 16 years in my capacity as a land acquisition manager for three different companies, including a top ten national home builder. He is a detailed and ethical land broker. He has been in the land business a long time and is skilled at negotiating with both buyers and sellers. He is able to have both parties leave the negotiation process happy, which is in itself a skill. As a purchaser of land for subdivisions, I can tell you his marketing packages provide all of the detailed information that I need to analyze a property. If I were a landowner would enlist him to sell my property.

Stephen and I worked closely together on a highly controversial and complex planned residential community that required multiple public hearings and sensitive negotiations with neighbors, community groups and governmental officials. Stephen was instrumental in the ultimate approval and sale of the project. His preparation and knowledge of the facts and ability to constructively work with people were instrumental to the project’s success.

I want to thank you for the professional and tireless work you and Barb did for us on the sale of our property. We know that this was a difficult challenge given the size and value of our property. You and Barb personalized your efforts and we greatly appreciated this. I was a pleasure working with you. I really liked the way you constantly "think outside of the box" to create innovative and atypical strategies to market properties of this complexity. I give you my highest praise for your professionalism. I would recommend you to anyone in need of a company that is willing to take on difficult or complex property challenges. Please call on me any time for my personal recommendation.

Stephen represented the estate of my wife's father, selling a large parcel of wooded investment property in Baltimore County. As a CPA, I'm a stickler for details and very thorough in the approach I take in my work and other business dealings. We were very pleased that Stephen always kept us informed as he marked the property, obtained multiple offers, and worked with us to select a buyer and through the prompt closing of the deal. We are pleased to recommend Stephen to those interested in selling land in Maryland.
