My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a REALTOR® in Baltimore, Harford and Cecil Counties, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"I had the pleasure of working with Bettie while trying to find a place to stay when I had to relocate from NJ to MD in short period of time. I had received her name from a co-worker who highly recommended her. Betty was such a tremendous help to me during my search she took all the information I had provided to her in what I was looking for in a neigborhood, school system and location and price range. She created compatible list of rental properties rentals properties for me to review and make a decision. I had selected several properties from the list and Betty made me a packet with all those listings. I was tilling living in NJ while in the process of moving and Betty was very responsive and kept in close communication with me during the entire process. Betty was very flexible with the times that I was available to view the properties she took her time and walked through each property with me and my family and outlined everything in the homes and included information about the are"
"Mrs. Betty Klepetka is a very conscientious Realtor. She will always do her best to help you either sell your home or find you a new home that will suit your needs. Mrs. Klepetka is very knowledgeable and very much on top of things. I would recommend her to anyone."
"Betty stepped into help me when my realtor was pulled away by a medical leave. And she was able to do this without missing a beat. She was familiar with where I was in the process and had 'done her homework'. I found Betty to be very personable in leading me through the home buying experience. She is knowledgeable of the ins and out of home buying and was very helpful. On one occasion when she brought me a choice from the selling, she gave me the pros and cons of both options; explaining them in simple terms for a simple guy like me. I was very pleased and will recommend her highly to people looking to buy or sell in this area"
"We met Betty in November 2010 for assistance with buying a home in Harford County, MD. From day 1 Betty was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and nice to deal with. We were moving here from NJ on a timeline and she was always available when we needed her. She had ideas on what we were searching for and always had a strong list of houses for us in addition to what we had sent her. We looked at numerous places. We had put a bid in on a short sale that was accepted by the seller. We were waiting to hear back from the seller's bank on whether our deal would be approved. The seller's realtor assured us that the approval was coming. We waited and still heard nothing back. Betty became proactive and discovered the seller's bank had no intention of approving the deal. This allowed us to move forward and find another property. We are completely satisfied with our recent May purchase. Not only did she help find our home, she even recommended furniture places and offered painting sug"
"Betty knows her service area well. She is a pleasure to talk to and to work with. She was willing to meet with us on our schedule. As we were new to Maryland, she was able to assist us in navigating the home buying process as it pertains to this area. Betty is also very good at listening to what you are looking for, and suggesting homes to look at that work for you and your family"
"Used Betty twice for buying homes and once for selling our home and we are 100% happy with our experience. She is very helpful and would do anything for anybody. Would definitely recommend her to others! You won't be disappointed."
"Betty was very helpful in the home searching and buying process, considering I was a first time home buyer and really didn't know where to start out. She took very good care of me in regards to giving me insight on conditions of homes, the surrounding areas, and helped me figure out what I wanted for myself in a home."
"Betty is very professional. She helped us in so many ways like: 1.Getting a property showing with short notice from us 2. Provide documents requested such as copies of HOA, market analysis 3. Follow up with seller/agent quickly regarding our inquiry 4. Following up with the bank regarding status of our loan 5. Quick response from seller during negotiation 6. Even help us looked at rental property. And probably did more but I could not remember since she has work with us for a while(Very very patient) until we finally found what we were looking for. Very respectful and professional in dealing with us. I will highly recommend Betty to my family and friends."
"Betty was one of the best realtors. She is extremely knowledgeable and was very helpful finding us a suitable rental and then a home in an area that was perfect for my young son. Since we were relocating from another state, it was not easy to know what the best areas for kids, schools and neighborhoods would be to raise a family. Betty went out of her way to give us pros and cons, tips on summer camps, and restaurant recommendations. Betty was also extremely accommodating. I work Monday through Friday and my husband is a nurse during the night shift. Obviously, our schedules don't collide very often, and Betty was available whenever we could synch our schedules. She always made time for us. Betty was also very patient. We looked at close to 300 homes and put in 6 offers over the course of 6 months. She never gave up and has become a true friend in the process. She is truly a one of the good ones. "

"I have bought and sold several properties over the course of 20 years and have dealt with many real estate agents. I found Ms Klepetka to be extremely professional whose subject matter expertise in all matters pertaining to real estate transaction to be a breath of fresh air. In addition, she was very very patient and never pressured a sale. Her concern was more that I found the right place vs her making a sale. Her charming and friendly personality made everything even better "
"I have known Betty for several years. She sold one of my homes, helped me find my next home. Betty helped solve obstacles in these transactions to make sure the sales went completed. I have seen Betty work in other real estate transactions where she has gone well beyond the normal responsibilities of real estate agents to ensure the sales went through. Betty is hard working , smart, experienced and has a great sense of humor, a trait helpful in sometimes difficult and emotional real estate transactions. I always highly recommend Betty as a real estate agent."

She guided us through it all, provided some personal recommendations/inputs that were very helpful, was responsive, and facilitated scheduling within a very tight timeline and met with all of our companies that were needed for inspection and quotes- making things so much easier on us. I would absolutely recommend her, she has strong knowledge of the whole buying process, and also Harford County as a community"

At times when I worried about certain items, she had already taken care of my concerns. She was extremely helpful and I am recommending her to any and all individuals I know looking to buy a home."
"Betty is an excellent realtor, she worked with me for many many months. I never once felt rushed or pushed into a sale, she was honest with me about how I should negotiate, she was responsive in terms of setting up appointments to see listings even some bad listings that had mold, LOL, she works with the seller on a short sale for me that could've been a much more lengthy process. She's knowledgeable persistent committed and follows through on what she says she's going to do..,nice disposition, pleasant; I couldn't of asked for a better Realtor"
-Wendy , Client
"At our first meeting, Betty provided us with a binder of the home buying process. She was organized and began working with us immediately. She was able to be flexible with our work schedules. She was always available to answer any questions. To help make the process easier, she had a list of vendors that we use for the needed services such as inspections. She provided us with checklists which were helpful to make sure we did overlook anything during the whole process, even after the settlement. The home buying process is frustrating, but Betty was able to assist in making everything move smoothly"
-Stacey C, Client
"Betty was an invaluable resource as my husband and I relocated to Maryland from Pennsylvania. Her knowledge of various counties and neighborhoods was crucial, and we were able to rely on her for all the information we needed. Betty makes great use of on-line technology to provide property information and get documents signed quickly and effectively. Most of all, Betty's patience and persistence helped us when we had to retract an offer on a house after extensive problems were uncovered. She stuck with us when we felt like we'd never find another property that worked for us. Betty showed us that she truly cared about us and our situation, and for that we'll be forever grateful. Anyone who puts their real estate needs in Betty Klepetka's hands will be well cared for! We recommend her highly!"
