In a home buyers market short on supply that met our requirements, Buzz's knowledge of the local market, and insights he gleaned from local real estate professionals was very instrumental in helping us find a home and make a winning offer to purchase. Throughout our entire home purchasing experience Buzz provided timely, experienced and helpful advice and input. He was always quick to respond to any inquiries with honest detailed input that ultimately lead to a successful purchase and closing on our new home. Even after the close Buzz's recommendations of experienced, top local contractors has proven invaluable.

"Buzz was a critical component in our relocation from California to Maryland. We were unfamiliar with the area; he expertly guided us to the perfect neighborhood for our family as well as the difficult decision of building or renovating an existing property. He has every connection in the community, very helpful in finding inspectors and other professionals. His efforts exceeded our expectations. I recommend him as an amazing broker, willing to go beyond for his clients. "

As a local, born and raised in this area, Buzz knows Frederick and Montgomery County better than anyone. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with, as is the entire Mackintosh team. He is not pushy and will take as much time as you need to find the house that fits your family best. Buzz is very engaged through the entire process, helping to coordinate inspections and providing referrals for post sale services such as painters etc. I highly recommend Buzz and the team at Mackintosh!

I have worked with Buzz multiple times over the last 25 years. It is my opinion Buzz has a better understanding of the Frederick market than any other real estate agent I have spoken with. Buzz is a very hard working person, who returns phone calls, anytime, any day, and is willing to go the extra mile to get the deal done. His opinions are honest and straight forward, and I feel he has always worked in my best interest .

We were new to the Montgomery/Frederick County area. Buzz's in-depth knowledge of the market place, local real estate processes and paperwork, and advice on desirable property characteristics for the area were invaluable. He was very responsive to our questions and needs and is very well connected and respected in the community. He assisted us in acquiring a property before it came on the market, and while he represented us as the buyers, he also was very effective in facilitating communications between us and the seller. We are pleased to give Buzz our highest recommendation.
Richard & Kim Day , Frederick, Md

Buzz sold us the home originally 22 years ago, and has helped several of my family members purchase homes, so naturally we turned to him for the sale of the home. He really went above and beyond to help facilitate the sale of the home, and we highly recommend him for purchasing OR for selling a new home!
Marcia Canfield, Buckeystown,Md

We were very pleased with Buzz's assistance in helping us find a buyer for the Buckeystown house. It was a challenge to find a buyer because of its uniqueness, and a tough market. He has been extremely professional and strategically right on target. I reviewed 7 agents before coming to him. We made a good choice.

Lisa Pierce, Frederick,Md
05/16/2014
Buzz is one of the most experienced, professional Realtors in Frederick County. His local knowledge and reputation in the Realtor community are unmatched. In the middle of July in a slow economy we listed our home with Buzz. He immediately called some fellow Realtors who he'd heard might have clients interested in the neighborhood, resulting in a showing the next day and a contract almost immediately thereafter. Experience and connections are priceless and Buzz has both.
Roger Gibson, Middletown,Md
12/17/2013
Buzz not only sold our home but also negotiated with the owner of the house we bought and neither house was listed at the time. His knowledge of the industry and tactfulness with people is unsurpassed!
Joshua Winn Pt of Rocks, Md

My fiancee and I were shopping for our first homes and were recommended Buzz by several friends and family. From the first time we met, he seemed very interested in getting to know us to help him better find a home that would fit what we were looking for. Buzz frequently sent us new homes that came on the market in our price range and specifications. He was more than willing to meet with us over the weekends to go visit any houses we were interested in. Ultimately, he found the perfect home for my now wife and I to start our lives together. We couldn't be happier with the service that Buzz provided.

I came to know Buzz at the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World convention in the spring of 2008. I have been impressed how much support Buzz and his brothers, Andy and Jim, provide to the agents affiliated with their company, Mackintosh Inc., REALTORS. It is a rare occasion in today’s real estate environment where you find owners who care so much and support their agents to the lengths they do. Buzz has been very instrumental in helping promote my speaking career. I say that to again stress how he is so selfless in his help and assistance to the professionals around him. He has been very generous in sharing ideas and contacts.Having met many top real estate professionals from around the country, I would consider Buzz Mackintosh one of Maryland’s most dedicated and top notch real estate professionals

"Throughout the entire process, Buzz was exceptional in his ability to facilitate the initial agreement between the prior owner and myself, as well as overseeing all of the components necessary to bring the agreement to fruition. It was very apparent throughout the process that Buzz spends a great deal of time getting to understand his client's needs, as well as the needs of the prospective buyer. As he worked through the process, he did an excellent job of suggesting alternatives that would satisfy both parties. Needless to say, in my personal case, all of the components were completed and I was extremely satisfied in my dealings with him as a real estate agent. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the community."
