When it comes to buying a house, you’re looking for the perfect place to call home. The problem is, in today’s market there just aren’t that many homes available to purchase. With inventory hovering near record lows and sky-high buyer demand, a multi-offer scenario is the new normal. Here are five things to keep in […]
The real estate market is soaring today. Residential home values are rising, and that’s a big win for homeowners. In 2020, there was a double-digit increase in home values – a trend that’s expected to head toward similar levels this year. However, skyrocketing prices are causing some to start questioning affordability in the current housing […]
We’re in the ultimate sellers’ market right now. If you’re a homeowner thinking about selling, you have a huge advantage in today’s housing market. High buyer demand paired with very few houses for sale makes this the optimal time to sell for those who are ready to do so. Whatever the move you want to […]
The major challenge in today’s housing market is that there are more buyers looking to purchase than there are homes available to buy. Simply put, supply can’t keep up with demand. A normal market has a 6-month supply of homes for sale. Anything over that indicates it’s a buyers’ market, but an inventory level below […]
In a normal market, it’s good to have an experienced guide coaching you through the process of buying or selling a home. That person can advise you on important things like pricing your home correctly or the first steps to take when you’re ready to buy. However, the market we’re in today is far from […]
During the Great Recession, just over a decade ago, the financial systems the world depended on started to collapse. It created a panic that drove some large companies out of business (ex. Lehman Brothers) and many more into bankruptcy. The financial crisis that accompanied the current pandemic caused hardship to certain industries and hurt many […]
Deb went above and beyond to make our home purchase a wonderful experience.
It was a pleasure working with her!
- M. Benitez
I cant say enough good things about Roe Sommer but I will try.
She has more integrity than any other professional I have met. It doesn't matter how big or small the task at hand is she gives it 150%, pedal to metal all the way. Rapid response and here’s the kicker.....she actually listens to you as opposed to pushing another agenda. I would never use anyone else for my real estate transactions!

My husband and I were immediately struck by the warmth, grace and professionalism of Roe and Deb in their
interactions with us. We had several other interviews with other realtors and no one else was as friendly and
approachable. We felt our needs were heard immediately.
Roe and Deb did a phenomenal job selling our home. Most of their time was spent in helping us get ready for
the sale. Making the home attractive by helping us select the best colors for repainting various rooms, staging
for the best look before going live, and assisting in creating a new contemporary look in our kitchen. They
both have a wonderful sense of style, design and color which helped transform our older somewhat cluttered
1968 cape cod home into a stylish home that garnered more offers than we ever expected and our home sold
in less than a week!!
They are always willing to go the extra mile to find the answer to a question or research information without
any hesitation, and always with a smile. They are the BEST! I would and will recommend them to anyone
looking for a home. They have listened to us in the best and worst of moods as is the case in selling a home.
We thank them for their patience, sensitivity and caring in all their hard work on our behalf!
- Mark & Susan H.
We had a great experience working with Deb and Roe.
I couldn’t believe how responsive they were to all of our requests and questions. They were vey helpful in explaining to entire process and I was really happy with the results. Thank you so much for everything.
- Servet C.
I would recommend Deb and Roe highly since they accomplished getting the house sold well past the end of
the normal sales season, and in spite of working with non-motivated sellers who showed no flexibilty on
discuss price. Obviously, this did not make their job any easier but they didn't kick us to the curb but kept on
actively trying to sell the property. The final result was a sale price that was acceptable and a good working
relationship with Deb and Roe throughout the process.
- William M.
Roe thanks for making my Moms big move from NJ to Lansdowne Woods so easy!
Your attention to detail and organization skills are appreciated!
- Jen L.
The bottom line up front is that Deb and Roe are an outstanding team - we were extraordinarily lucky to have them as our agents and we would fully endorse them for any real estate needs.
After meeting with Deb and Roe, they worked together to understand our wants and needs. They worked with us to ensure we arrived at a good decision to build a new home. After signing a contract to build a new house - in which we had to go in with a contingent offer - we knew we had to get to work to list our property and get it sold quickly. This is a stressful situation, but Deb and Roe walked us through the entire process to put us at ease. They brought research material to the table to enable us to make an informed decision on the right price point to list our property. They answered all of our questions, ensured we had a solid understanding, and never pushed us in one direction or another. With the right price point, a great marketing plan, friendly staging advice, open houses, and consistent communication, we were able to receive two offers and close on our property in a timely fashion. With their expert guidance, friendly demeanor, and positive focus, Carrie and I were able to focus on actually enjoying the entire process - not stressing over it. Carrie and I also want to thank Deb and Roe for helping us overcome an adventurous closing experience. They both came to our closing while the buyers agent did not. Despite several issues (from the buyers perspective) on the home inspection, Deb and Roe were able to tactfully explain the contractual obligations of the buyer and seller, articulate the compromises that Carrie and I made to meet their concerns. Deb and Roe both professionally, but firmly, explained to the buyers that we would not be making any more concessions. The closing date was not the negotiation table - and Deb and Roe diffused this situation in such a fashion that we could press forward and finish the closing process. They are truly a unique tandem and we cannot imagine going through this process without this team. Thank you so much!

I want to thank you for all your assistance in finding me a new home.
You were such a pleasure to work with and a true professional! I didn't consider you just a realtor, but also a partner in my search who looked out for my best interest along the way. In short, you are a model for real estate professionalism! Roe, you are like-able, a friendly person and easy to work with. Thank you again for your guidance and I would highly recommend you to anyone who may need your services!
- Trisann C.
Deb and Roe are true professionals. They took the time to get to know us and our needs as a young family. They were always on top of new and "coming soon" listings so we could tour homes as soon as possible. Roe was great at getting us additional information about the homes we saw as well as comparables. She also walked us through submitting offers and through the contract negotiations. She kept us informed throughout the closing process and was in constant contact with all those involved from the seller's agent to the mortgage lender to the title company. She was always available and responsive to our questions or concerns. Roe and Deb were committed to helping us get the home we needed in a very tough market. We would highly recommend the McLoughlin & Sommer Team, LLC when looking to purchase a new home!
- Shannon and Jason
This was my first time selling a house. Deb McLoughlin & Roe Sommer Team were excellent through the
whole process. They always maintained a professional manner and were clearly determined to help my
husband and I get the most value for our townhouse. Roe made sure we understood all of the paperwork we
were signing, going through it with both of us. She gave us a timeline of the sale and came through even
when we had to slip the dates a little. Both Deb and Roe provided excellent advice on staging our house.
They were both present at the open house. The Deb McLoughlin & Roe Sommer Team are excellent! They
love what they do and are very knowledgeable about the neighborhood. We received 8 offers on our house
and sold for more than we expected! I highly recommend them for selling your house.
- Cathy B.
Roe and her team helped us find a rental, and then a year and half later our forever home!
She was patient and checked in regularly when we were in between the two processes, and was ready to jump when we were! She was alway professional, prompt, and gave us tons of great advice. Her and Deb are a 5 star team and we are so lucky we found our dream home because of them!
- Rebecca & Justin
Roe was absolutely incredible to work with.
My Husband and I were renters, looking for a new rental until we're ready to buy. We're selective, on a tight budget, and we come with a dog -- not an easy combination to work with when renting. Roe must have let us drag her through every Northern Virginia zip code looking for the right place, and she did it all with a smile, a fantastic disposition, and a genuine desire to ensure we found the perfect fit. She was relentless in her search, and kept in near-constant contact with us; we always knew the status of our search and any upcoming opportunities to check out a house. She cared for us as renters better than many Agents I've seen treat buyers -- which is noteworthy, considering it's a commission-based career, and rentals have very little return on the time an agent invests, relative to the return on time invested in a home safe/purchase. She made us feel throughout the process as though we were the most important clients in her portfolio, and I don't doubt she treats everyone with such kindness, courtesy, and grace. We wholeheartedly recommend Roe for any of your real estate needs, and hope to work with her again in the future.
- Jason & Christine T.
Rosemarie Sommer is a wonderful real estate agent who cares about her clients to no end.
Her professionalism and work ethic is outstanding. I recommend to everyone who is looking for a house. Rosemarie Sommer is an ace real estate agent that you can trust. Roe know real estate.
- Jay & Yvette Y.
Roe cared about making sure the house presented well. Again, she was very thorough in helping me
through a complicated process. Her honest approach made me comfortable from start to finish. I would
recommend the team to anyone looking for a realtor!
- Richard G.
Roe Sommer was an absolute pleasure to work with! She’s extremely knowledgeable at what she does. She
made the sale of our townhouse smooth sailing in only 3 days! She was always quick to respond whenever
we had any questions, and she was always calm and patient when we weren’t!
We will highly recommend McLoughlin & Sommer Team to our friends and family!
- Erin Karnes
Deb was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions quickly, professionally and thoroughly.
She was an excellent advisor throughout the entire purchasing process and never hesitated to address our concerns. She brought a personal approach to the home buying process, fully recognizing the needs of our family, striving to ensure that all of our needs were met and that we were comfortable and informed every step of the way. I would gladly recommend Deb and the team to anyone looking to purchase or rent a home.
- Matt T.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Roe Sommer and Deb McLoughlin when selling our home.
We were impressed by their personal approach, professionalism, attention to detail and hard work. They were always available to answer our questions and provide guidance and support. We felt like they had our best interests in mind. Roe and Deb were extremely helpful throughout the entire process, keeping us informed about every aspect all the way up to closing. Their knowledge and experience made the entire sale process less stressful. We received multiple offers above listing price within the first two days. We can’t say enough wonderful things about the McLoughlin & Sommer Team and we highly recommend them if you are in the market for an exceptional Realtor.
- Amy T.
Roe and Deb were fantastic regarding the sale of our home! They presented us with all of their research for
pricing and marketing the home, which was very thorough. They allowed us to lead the process and make
decisions, and gave us their honest opinions whenever we asked. They truly wanted us to get the best offer
on this home and did everything they could to make that happen.
- Shannon & Jason B.
We could not be happier with the outcome of purchasing our new home in this crazy Market! Things went
smoother then we could have ever imagined! McLoughlin and Sommer Team are the best, and we would
highly recommend them to our friends and family.
- Erin K.
I have been provided excellent service by Roe Sommer to make it through.
In spite of the first home buyer, I have been feeling in a seat of a luxury sedan in the journey of home buying. The road is shorter when two people walk it. She was not just a realtor but became a wonderful friend giving me a hand in the journey. She always showed very swift reply to my concern about sales contract and closing. Although there was unexpected issues in the process of my loan approval, I was not getting nervous a lot. She often reached out to the lender to check how it is going in the process and let us know the situation. She did a great job to make us comfortable in this new experience. We only took a tour for 4 houses in 3 days. Roe exactly understood which house we wanted and arranged appointments at our convenience. She helped us make an offer with her local knowledge of area, communities and properties. She gave us great advice in negotiating the price and terms of the purchase. Indeed, we purchased our new home with $9,000 lower price. We never anticipate this will happen because we were thinking of accepting the sales price not to lose this awesome condo. Frankly to say, it was not easy for us to understand each steps in the home buying process. She was always ahead of us and guided to make us choose the right one with a full understanding. We are very thankful of what Roe has done for us. I will definitely contact Deb McLoughlin & Roe Sommer Team, LLC for our second home in the future. Also, I would like to strongly recommend you for your next home.
- J. Park
Roe was attentive and helpful throughout and even after the purchase of our home.
She was always helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had throughout the process. On top of that, she was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!
- Kim D.
I would highly recommend Roe Sommer and Deb McLoughlin to anyone looking to sell or buy a new home.
They clearly walked us though each step of the process and each page of the contract to insure we were comfortable. Additionally, they offered many helpful tips and recommendation in preparing our home for sale as well as always being available to include immediately responding to new potential homes when they pop'd up. Giving us the first shot at making an offer. I have to say that getting 8 offers 2 days after listing our home was beyond my expectations. If I ever need to look to sell or buy again, I will most certainly choose this excellent team.
