We are proud of our ranking and we will continue to bring our customers the unparalleled service, expertise and client-first philosophy they can expect from Maryland’s top-ranking residential real estate team.”

“I’d like to congratulate Creig Northrop and the entire Northrop Team on their sales success and top ranking in REAL Trends as the No. 1 team in Maryland,” said P. Wesley Foster Jr., chairman and CEO of The Long & Foster Companies. “The fact that so many clients have put their trust in The Northrop Team shows their commitment to helping clients meet their real estate needs.”
