My name is Holly Bednar. I've lived in Southern Maryland for fifteen years. I'm based in Charlotte Hall, and can help you with all your home buying and selling needs in Charles, Calvert, St. Mary’s counties; focusing in the towns of La Plata, Waldorf, Chesapeake Beach, Port Republic, and Leonardtown and surrounding areas.
I earned my Real Estate License in College Park, Maryland in 2012. Since then I've worked with and learned from some of the industry’s top agents and coaches to enhance my understanding of the market and all aspects of Real Estate.
I have the expertise necessary to assist my clients as they realize their real estate goals. I take great satisfaction in finding buyers the right home at the lowest possible price with easy financing, often with low or no down payments. I have a great track record with my seller clients because my listings tend to go under contract in a matter of a few days, often at or above the asking price.
I understand that the purchase of a home is often the largest investment a person will make in their lifetime; and for this reason I believe that REALTORS® have an obligation to be well educated to provide the level of service and protection their clients deserve.
Having attended, Brigham Young University in Provo, UT majoring in Public Policy, and Valdosta State University in Valdosta, GA, focusing on Anthropological Studies, I have a well rounded background in my formal education, and since becoming an agent, I've completed intensive Real Estate training covering a variety of topics from marketing listings for quick sale to negotiating contracts, and helping sellers in danger of foreclosure. In order to stay on the cutting edge of my industry, I attend workshops, classes, and seminars continually on all the pertinent subjects in the field of Real Estate, including the 8-week Success Real Estate Training Program with Key Yessaad, and the Real Estate Activity Based Coaching and Training series with Johnny Loewy. Utilizing the latest internet technologies, I efficiently market and find homes at an expert level.
My dedication to service and strong work ethic earned me the honor of receiving the "SMAR Awards of Excellence, 2013 Rookie of the Year for Charles County", and a Gold award for Residential Sales in 2017. http://www.southernmarylandrealtors.com/Awards
I hold a designation as a Certified Negotiation Expert, (CNE), and am a member in good standing of Southern Maryland Association of REALTORS® (SMAR), Maryland Association of REALTORS® (MAR), the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), in addition to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). But more than just joining professional associations, I believe that being a REALTOR® is about serving in the community where I work and live. I've volunteered for the Charles County Literacy Council tutoring adult, non-readers; as well as the Children’s Aid Society in Waldorf, MD, putting together and delivering food baskets for needy families, and I along with Exit Realty donate on a regular basis to Habitat for Humanity and to date Exit has donated over $3 Million to that organization and built numerous Habitat Homes.
Having been through numerous military relocations within the US while growing up; and living all over the continental US, in Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Georgia, Utah, and Washington State, I understand the circumstances that surround military transfers and the unique housing needs of our service men and women, and their families. To formalize my expertise in this area of Real Estate, I took a course for Military Relocation Professionals, earning the MRP designation.

"Holly is amazing! She assisted us in purchasing a house site-unseen and was honest and knowledgeable throughout. Our purchase was complicated due to selling our other home out of state and needing a pre-occupancy lease prior to closing, on top of the usual real estate issues, but Holly took care of everything and made it look easy... I would recommend Holly to anyone and everyone!!"
