Tell Us Your Story

I had an outstanding experience working with McKenna and Vane regarding the sale of my home.

From David's first email to me, his initial visit to discuss how his firm works, to the closing, he was very hands on and professional. I forgot to move the HOA process along but David and his team, specifically, Erin Phelps, completed the process for me automatically. The contractors used by McKenna and Vane were top quality with great customer service also. Every transaction with the contractors to prepare my home for sale went smoothly and professionally, including the moving company recommended by David. If you are selling your home, especially if you are moving out of the Central Maryland area, I highly recommend working with McKenna and Vane!

Nicole Plowman

Thank you, and your team, Erin and David, for making the sale of my house in MD so easy and quick.

You absolutely earned 5 stars. I would give you the moon, too, if that was a choice. :) It was a pleasure to meet you. You and your team are exceptional. All of my questions were answered thoroughly, with patience, and in a timely manner which allowed the process to move smoothly and swiftly. Everyone was knowledgeable, professional, personable, reachable and responsive. My neighbors, the best neighbors ever, gave me Michael's name and number. I knew they would not steer me wrong. Calling Michael was one of the best decisions I've made. I really love that house and having such a pleasant experience selling it makes me happy. Not only was this a great business relationship, I feel like I've made friends for life! Best regards, Susan

Lisa Butler

We had a great experience selling our home with Michael.

My husband was offered a new position in AZ in July and Michael was able to get our home sold in just 2 weeks so we could move out to AZ by Aug. and get my son in school on time! He understood our urgency and made the impossible, possible! He had great connections to contractors that were able to make repairs to our home and get it ready to sell quickly. Michale walked us through the whole process, was familiar with corporate relocation, and got our home sold for even more than we were hoping for! We highly recommend Michael McKenna!

Words can not express how happy I was working with Chris Holbert and the Weichert Columbia Team. I did my home purchase through NACA and Chris was learning their processes and very patient. Having Chris as my real estate agent felt like I was really with a friend who wanted the best first home for me. WE DID IT! Chris is awesome. As a first time homebuyer, Chris educated me along the way, had my best interest at the forefeont and really did an amazing job. I am so HAPPY WITH MY FIRST HOME! Thank you Chris and Weichert Columbia!

Paulette Smith

We had a fantastic experience with McKenna & Vane (yes, I’m talking about selling our house!

). Michael and the whole team were there for us every step of the way helping with ideas, solutions, and talking us down off of the roof when we needed it. They are an awesome team. If you are selling your house, don’t go it alone - get this team to partner with you. You’ll be glad you did!

John G

Julie and her team at Weichert McKenna & Vane were AMAZING to work with.

I had to use them while in a jam to quickly find a tenant in our rentla during the summer of 2018 and then I used Julie Kelley again to sell my home 2 weeks ago. Not only did Julie sell my home, she did a vast majority of the legwork to get it market ready by ensuring contracted work was done on time and on schedule. Truly painless on my part and she provided feedback EVERY step of the way throughout the ENTIRE process. Essentially, Julie and the Weichert team made managing my home as a rental and then as a listing seemless. Julie gets 10 starts from me and I'd HIGHLY recommend working with her and, most likely, any one of her colleagues at Weichert. Hands down the best realty service I've ever used in my 11 real estate transactions.

Brandon Beaudoin

We had a great experience with Weichert McKenna & Vane!

Michael McKenna was awesome! My husband and I were looking for a property manager to rent our home. We contacted McKenna & Vane. After some discussion we decided to sell. Michael was there for us the entire way. Quickly transitioning from a rental to a sale. He walked us through the process and talked us through the anxious moments in the process. He was always available to us. Extremely responsive. His team went to work to get the property ready to sell. Removing unwanted items from the home, cleaning and staging the property. The property was listed with beautiful photos of our home and we had potential buyers come through the next day. The house sold in 2 days well above asking price! I could go on and on about our wonderful experience. We highly recommend the McKenna and Vane team! Hire them you will not be disappointed! Thank you Michael McKenna and the McKenna & Vane team!!

Jackie P., Baltimore MD

I live out of state, and Carol guided me expertly through the sale of my condo.

She went above and beyond by attending numerous meetings with contractors, property managers, and other real estate professionals on my behalf, so I never had to travel to Maryland. I couldn't ask for more zealous representation!

Kelly B., Sudbury MA

I want to thank Michael and his team for doing a great job.

I didn't have to worry about a thing. I was in great hands. Thank you!!

Our agent Daniel is great!

He is very professional, experienced and responsive. When we were not sure about the decision, he can always give us accurate, rational and honest suggestions driven by good data. In this market, he helped us get a great deal on the house, which fit beyond all our expectation. The whole process buying house was smooth and worry-free with Daniel Travelpiece. We will definitely recommend him to our friends or colleagues.

Zhen W.

David Vane has been our realtor for two home purchases.

David assisted at each step of the home buying process. David and his staff are extremely helpful, professional and always available to answer questions. I highly recommend David!

Alex Phillips

Working with Weichert - McKenna & Vane made my moving experience as pleasurable an experience as you can have with such a significant change.

Our Realtor Mike McKenna communicated extraordinarily well about every step in the process and was extremely responsive to the concerns my wife and I had. Everyone associated with the company was professional but still able to maintain a friendly and personal demeanor that put us at ease and made us feel they were representing our best interest without judgment or expectation. Mikey was effectively able to remove some of the enormous stress that inevitably comes with moving. It felt great NOT to be treated like just another "commission". I would highly recommend McKenna & Vane to anyone in the market to sell or purchase a home. You guys are the best! THANKS A MILLION!


Own rental property in Elkridge - have worked with Weichert New Colony for the past 7-8 years.

They have always been able to find me qualified tenants quickly. Had repairs done to my house this winter and they were able to arrange things so that the tenants moved in the day after the repairs were completed! No down time at all. When you have a rental property, time is money. They were able to save me a ton ?! Will definitely call them again when I need a realtor. Best thing about them is that they have a great team of people who really care about their customers.

gabriel gamboa

Shannon was absolutely amazing to work with!

!! She was honest and not just into a sale, but wanted us to have the best house for us, which we found!!! Definitely returning if we buy again!!!

Jessica Kunkle

Daniel Travelpiece is an extremely dedicated, motivated, and knowledgeable realtor.

Always on time, communicates effectively, and has your best interests in mind. Highly recommend!

Brian Merryman

Shannon Vane @ Weichert Realtors - McKenna & Vane was a pleasure to work with.

She was very detail oriented and made sure everything went smoothly for me. She answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly and represented me well. Simply the best. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends

Gayle Jamison

Marilyn was outstanding and bent over backwards in helping us purchase our home.

While conducting a military move, our timeline was accelerated and we weren't always available in person for certain required activities. Marilyn was available to our questions day or night, and would often go to locations and provide us with pictures or live video. I don't think we would've been able to secure a home in time for the new school year if it wasn't for her hard work! Thank you.

Edward Loudenclos

Michael supported us through every step of the home buying process acting as our eyes and on the ground and advocate, helping us navigating a challenging housing market.

Michael toured homes and shared videos to help us find the right home for our family! He also helped connect us with a great lending agent who was responsive and dedicated to helping us secure a loan for our new home. I would highly recommend Michael McKenna and McKenna and Vane for your housing needs!

Tara H., Columbia MD

David was great and worked with us being out of state.

We are so happy to have worked with him to buy our first home.

Rachel W., Mt. Airy MD

I would like to thank the team at Weichert Realtors McKenna/Vane for all their hard work to make my sale of my home an easy transition to the next chapter of my life.

Especially to Erin and Julia for their patience during this sale. Their lmowledge and communication to me was excellent which made me feel secure and confident that i chose the right Realtors. In fact my house sold within 2 weeks after it was listed. I would definitely recommend Weichert Realtors to anyone who wants to sell their house. Thank you again Weichert Realtors McKenna/Vane!

Frances McDonough

David Vane is a seasoned pro.

For most of us buying a home is a very infrequent and emotional experience. Dave understands that and was very patient with my wife and I. He was happy to answer ALL of our questions along the way. Additionally, because Dave has been in the business for so long, he really knew the ins and outs of making a competitive offer in this market, and how to receive great offers on the house we were selling. Once we were able to accept an offer on our house and had our offer accepted on our new house, Dave’s team was with us every step of the way to get the transaction done. My wife and I couldn’t be more pleased with how this all turned out.

Nick M., Clarksville MD

Our experience with Michael McKenna and his team at WEICHERT, REALTORS® - McKenna & Vane was one of our best.

Over the years, through the purchasing and selling of our properties, we have met with many realtors. Our interactions with Michael McKenna and his team was pleasurable, seamless and made selling our home the best experience it can possibly be. We began to work with Michael in the context of putting our home on the rental market. Our situation was stressful due to personal circumstances, but Michael was immensely patient with our seemingly endless questions. Eventually, we decided to sell our home, and Michael and his team were very understanding with changes in our plans and put the house on the market in record time. The process of selling was extremely smooth. Since we were traveling internationally, Michael kept us informed about offers in a timely manner, was diligent in ensuring that we considered all the benefits of each offer and advised us how to make the correct decision, always keeping our interests in mind. At closing, we had additional questions and Michael was always available to address them and provide the answers. Realtors can sometimes multitask on behalf of their clients but Michael took this activity to another level. Because we were traveling internationally, our move included complex instructions for many items from the house that were either gifted to friends or sold. Michael was diligent in coordinating all these efforts on our behalf and even helped when individuals needed to visit the home and pick up items, after we had vacated our home. Michael went out of his way to ensure that several items left behind were given away to charity. In fact, he personally coordinated the dropping off of items to the local charity and sent us tax receipts. One cannot wish for a better selling realtor than Michael McKenna and the entire team at McKenna and Vane. If we ever need to buy another home in Maryland, we know exactly whom to call when the time comes.

A.S., Marysville WA

My entire experience with McKenna & Vane, specifically Deborah Willis was top notch.

She was very patient, personable, knowledgeable, and always reachable. I highly recommend them and am very happy with my new house! The entire team was also helpful during a brief period Deborah was away on vacation. I've dealt with other real estate firms, this one was stellar!!


McKennaVane is the best property management group I have worked with!

They are professional, timely and, frankly, fun. Everything has been fluid and issues dealt with expediently. McKennaVane has given me peace and security knowing all the investment properties I own are nothing I need to even think about! They notice things before I do and have dealt with the County, tradespeople and neighbors! So grateful for McKennaVane.

Celia B., Ellicott City MD

Susan Memmert is the best!

John Fiduccia

Michael and his team effectively and efficiently managed the sale of my father's house with an international POA.

Thanks to the entire team for the personalized and professional job!

Alexandra D.

Julie Kelley should be your "go to" real estate agent.

She found us a home when we first moved here and helped us to sell. Her relentless support in providing services is top notch and she leaves no stone un-turned. Her knowledge of the market, work ethic, communication skills and professionalism is clearly un-matched in MD. We have recommended her to many friends and family and she has never disappointed. She'll work for you all hours of the day and night until she delivers results that you are 100% satisfied with!

George W.

Fantastic people!

Julia M.

Julie is the best!

She went well beyond what is expected from a realtor. I would definitely use her and her brokerage again.

Jason S., Sykesville MD

I used Shannon Vane for 5 years for both property management as well as selling our property.

Through every step of the process Shannon was extremely professional and communicative. I had the peace of mind knowing that my property was being taken care of while I was on the other side of the country. Shannon and her team easily saved me from many hours and headaches if I had tried to manage the property myself. When it came time to selling the property, the entire process was painless. She is dedicated to her clients and the results speak for themselves.

Rob Waters

Shideh is a great agent!

This is our second house with her. I cannot thank her enough for her dedication. She is always available to answer questions and go the extra miles for her clients. I am so thankfully to have her as my agent.
