Deepak Shankar

Sherri was a dream to work with.

She went above and beyond in every way. From providing great photos, detailed home description, and a very well done virtual tour of our home to sell, to calming our nerves, and keeping our best interests in mind from before we went to market to settlement day. She got us full ask in four days on the market. And she caught a mistake at settlement that saved us several hundred dollars. We really appreciated Sherri expertise, kindness, and reliability. We fully recommend her.

Ashira Quabili

Nisha is a wonderful realtor.

She helped find a rental quickly and efficiently. Very kind and flexible. Will definitely use her in the future.

Taylor M.

Nisha did a fine job representing my property.

A close acquaintance ended up submitting an offer before the property went to market; nevertheless, Nisha facilitated a swift, smooth process leading up to closing, all the while providing valuable advice during a tricky negotiation process. I would definitely recommend Nisha's services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Anthony Thomas

Zaria truly took the time to get to know our needs and wants in our new home.

She was very open and honest about the process and being a first time home buyer myself it really made the process feel more at ease. She was not afraid to ensure that her client's requests were voiced with the other party and I admire that in an agent and feel it is an important quality to have. She went above and beyond as I was making an out of state move to home I had never physically walked into. I can not thank you her enough for everything she did to make our move in day as seamless as possible.

Elias Orozco (Compliance Manager)

If you need someone with lots of patients, Sherri Sembly is the one for you.

She worked with our seller to allow us to rent back until we were able to move into our new place. She stayed on top of every step we went thru. She is super easy to work with. I would recommend her very highly to sell or buy a home.

David Schmelter

I want you for all your many efforts in the acquisition of our new property.

Finding a legitimate home is not that easy. We found the hard way. With advice from Nikki we were able to make sound and wise decisions. In moving forward with the process. So we were able to close on a very nice property. TD Bank is the underwriter ask for Amit Desai . Also did wonders as well . I recommend using this team of people.

What can we say besides…fantastic, go-getter, and extremely pleasant to work with.

We are so grateful for LaKeta’s hard work and dedication. She was on top of every detail, from the initial home search to the final closing. LaKeta was kind and patient as she listened to our every detail of what we looked for in our true ‘Dream home’. Her professionalism, knowledge, helpfulness and quick to respond to each question we asked. She helped us find our dream home faster than we ever thought possible. Her keen eye for detail and understanding of our needs were commendable. We are extremely happy with our purchase and felt very well taken care of during the entire process. Her negotiation skills were top-notch and she was able to secure our dream home in a timeframe that seemed impossible. She was always available and went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable throughout the entire process. We would recommend LaKeta without any reservations! Thank you for such a great experience! We love our new home!

Matthew Hawes

Nisha and her partner Sherri helped me to sell my rental property in Baltimore.

I primarily worked with Nisha as i know her from 13 years ago when she helped me with the purchase of this property. I can say that Nisha is very professional and reliable agent. Nisha was also very knowledgeable and so easy to work with. I would recommend Nisha to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Serhiy Holdfeld

My wife and I conducted 4 interviews prior to selecting Sherri.

Her enthusiasm and personality made her an easy choice. She was perfect from the very start. The virtual staging was exceptional. Her availability was remarkable. If she couldn't immediately answer a call, she called back in a very timely matter. We felt like we were working with a family member the entire process. Sherri kept us well informed. I highly recommend Sherri to help sell your current home or even purchase your next.

Steven Ferrell

Nisha is absolutely wonderful!

!! Nisha walked us through the selling of our old home and the purchasing of our new home. What seemed like it would be a super stressful experience, Nisha helped every step of the way getting us multiple offers and a contract in just 2 weeks. If that wasn't impressive enough, Our "potential" new house already had 5 offers on it and we became the 6th offer. We not only secured the house but most of our demands as the buyers were met from the sellers. I would recommend Nisha to all my friends and family!

Jasmine Jordan

Great job of educating and including me in the decision making process.

Following up with stuff and most of all very professional.

Fran Maduabum

Sherri was honest and straight forward with us, even when we didn't like it which was a good thing for us.

I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Kelvin Knight

Nisha was an amazing realtor, this was my 4th property purchase and she was by far the best!

She made me feel comfortable, was very genuine, and last but not least reliable! If I shop again in the baltimore market I will be giving Nisha another call! Thanks for helping me find a home for my mom!

Calvin Islar

I love working with Sherri!

She is very knowledgeable and on top of everything throughout the transaction. She truly cares about her clients and treats them like family. I have not had a single transaction where her clients have not raved about her service and leave considering her a friend for a lifetime. Great job Sherri always!!

Apryl Jackson

She wasn’t afraid to be honest with me, from the start, even if it meant losing me as a client.

She encouraged me to move forward with my initial goal, to sell my home, when I hit a snag and stopped the show. Nikki’s response to that, helped me to regroup and get back on track. She reminded me, that it was in my best interest, to sell. I felt as though my house was displayed adequately and thoroughly , to potential buyers, as there seemed to be no shortage of scheduled showings. She was very organized, especially in regard to the open house. Nikki was quick on the draw with sending documents to be signed. She expressed enthusiasm and positivity; she was polished, and dressed to the T. Initially, I felt as though her fee was too high for me, but in the end it seemed fitting. Her sign, however, became problematic, in my front yard, as it became lopsided, and I felt as though she didn’t take care of it, in a timely manner. When the buyer put in an offer, Nikki strongly suggested that I take it, although it was substantially lower than the listed price. I was excited about the offer because it seemed right, however, I’m not sure why she/we, didn’t counter it. At settlement, I was very happy with the proceeds. I had no qualms about it. She got my house sold, for me! Nikki also got me away from what had become an ongoing and extremely difficult living situation. It was one which was detrimental to my mental health, healthy wellbeing, and personal safety. Thank you.

Carolyn Blanche Kahoe

This is it, you've found the best realtor you will ever need.

I had Becca sell my house before a move out of state. She is an extremely attentive and detailed person. Any questions you have, she will have the answer or find the answer quickly. I felt like she was just waiting by her phone to help me through this very stressful life event. She went above and beyond anything I've ever experienced or even expected from a realtor. My only regret is that I was moving out of state and couldn't use her for my purchase there. She may not have a lot of years of experience attached to her name, but you would never know it. If you want a realtor that is always keeping you in the loop and explaining everything you might be confused about, you have found her!

Angela Foy

LaKeta is outstanding!

Her service and exceptional expertise she provided throughout the process of selling my home was fantastic! It was a pleasure working with her. Thank you for your guidance and expertise, my home sold in a remarkably short time frame and at the asking price. I cannot recommend your services highly enough.

William Simpson

Nisha was amazing.

Her attentiveness and hard work made our house buying experience with Team Forward exceptional.

Meghan Schepp

Sherri went above and beyond with our home buying process.

We were out of state buyers and that didn't stop Sherri from sending us detailed videos and very informative about distinctions such as the condition of appliances and any distinctive smells or odors. This was big for us and she worked very hard and at times late hours 7 days a week!! We could not have had a better Agent!! I would not recommend anyone else! The highest level of professionalism guaranteed!! We didn't just have an Agent. We gained a true friend!

Mitiya Wright

Sherri and Team Forward did a great job in helping us find our new forever home.

The process was as seamless as we could have asked for in a crazy seller's market. Sherri was always available and responsive to any questions and thoughts we had along the way. You can tell she really cares about her clients. Closing was smooth and easy and we'd recommend Sherri and her team all the way!


Nisha Smithrick and Sherri Sembly are incredible.

I was nervous and inexperienced in the home buying process. They made this a great experience. I appreciate that were patient and informative. I love Nisha’s bubbly attitude. I’ll be a client for life. I couldn’t imagine trusting anyone else with these life changing decisions.

Karlin Anderson

I cannot thank Nisha enough for her wonderful help and guidance through this process.

She was so professional yet very personable and friendly! I will definitely recommend her services to any and all who are looking for a realtor.

Deborah Prem

Eggy and Christine work as a team for their clients.

Team Kamt never gave up on finding me a home. Always be available when had questions.I work full time and have children so my schedule is very hectic.

Sherri Sembly and team are tremendous, highly recommend, point blank, gets the job done.

Raymond Swann

For our home, we were lucky to have worked with Sherri Sembly.

I am so glad we did. They were there every step of the way. Extremely professional, thorough, courteous and gave us the best quality of services. If you are looking for a realtor who you can trust, I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.

Shahana Khan

We are very pleased with NextHome Forward.

The sales rep. Sherri Sembly went out of her way to help make selling out home as easy as possible. We also needed a new home at the same time, and she also handled that with finesse. We are transitioning much easier since Sherri stayed on top of every move. We are retired and elderly, so you know how frustrating things can get. But for Sherri, she understood and handled us with kid gloves at the same time with respect. So if you need someone you can depend on it would be NextHome Forward with Sherri Sembly on your side.

B. Hope

Nisha was very kind and helpful in our search for a rental.

She worked with us quickly and efficiently from a different part of the state. She is punctual and patient. Would use her services again.

Brandon Wilhelm

Sherri is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with!

She is honest and straight-forward and her inputs were extremely valuable as we were purchasing a home from another state and could not view them in person. She is thorough and great at following up and communicating. We loved working with her and would definitely recommend her services to anyone buying or selling a home. I know we will work with her again in the future.

Jessica Mason

Sherri is AMAZING!

I used Sherri for the purchase of my condo and she really took great care of me. She was on top of everything, from the showings straight through to settlement (and even after). I then chose to use Sherri when I decided to rent out my property and once again she was wonderful. From helping me understand the process to following up with me throughout the year. I plan to use Sherri for any of my future real estate needs!

Moya Sebo

Sherri, Nisha, and the entire team of NextHome Forward are wonderful.

They go the extra step to make sure their clients are taken care of. I would highly recommend working with this office. They understand the real estate market and the entire process.

Dana Temple

It has been a pleasure working with LaKeta.

She is a team player and wants her clients to succeed. She sees challenges and creates feasible solutions. Within a short time of working with her I obtained my first investment property in Williamsburg, VA. I look forward to more transactions together.

Julian Jones (Investor)

Sherri is amazing!

Not only did she help me buy my first home, she also recently helped me sell it, and purchase my second! She helped me with everything every step of the way in both processes. She made it as close to effortless as possible. My family and I couldn’t be more grateful we had the opportunity to work with her. Without a doubt I would pick her again if I needed to. Thank You!

Ryan McLarney

This team was instrumental in helping us find a home in Maryland.

The process was challenging since we we’re relocating from out of state during the pandemic while homes were difficult to find. We worked directly with Nisha who was extremely professional, efficient, and generous with her time and insights. We highly recommend!!

Sheena Harris

Sherri is Simply Amazing!

She is a great realtor who knows her stuff. Being first time home buyers she never left us in the dark she explained and prepared us for everything that would come our way, she was with us through thick and thin (13months) and now she's like family she's never gave up or pressured us to settle. Her goal is not to just get you in a house but to make sure that house is the right one for you and the one you absolutely LOVE. She's very knowledgeable, extremely patient, reliable and most importantly trustworthy. You can best believe she has your best interest at heart. I would 1000% recommend her!

Gavin and Zaria Proctor

I had yet another exceptional experience with Sherri and NextHome Forward, she is committed to making sure that both your sale and your purchase is exactly what you want and goes as smoothly as possible, The team is dedicated and thoughtful and makes sure your wants and needs are understood and you get the perfect home!

Keith Lein

Nisha went above and beyond to satisfy my needs even times when I was unsure of I house I had seen she was glad to go back just to ensure I made my perfect fit.

I love my home and I’ll be happy to do business with her again thank you.

Tonya Thomas

Nisha and her team are absolutely top notch.

I have had several agents in the past with other home purchases and no one even comes close to her professionalism and knowledge of the market. I was connected with Nisha when I was looking to relocate to the Baltimore area from the Midwest. She and her team were wonderful with communication and follow-up throughout my journey to relocate. I had to travel to Baltimore a few times to view properties and Nisha listened to what I wanted so we made the best use of the time looking at homes that fit my specific needs. I couldn’t have imagined I would have such a trusted partner in an agent who was there with me every step of the way with incredible patience and guidance. Her team was on top of making sure I had all of the required electronic documents, helped with inspection company recommendations and Nisha even met the inspector at the property and looped me in on FaceTime when I couldn't make it in town. I now have a fabulous place overlooking the Harbor - exactly what I wanted. I cannot recommend Nisha and her team highly enough!

Angela Anderson

Noah did such a fantastic job helping me with my house.

He was diligent, honest, and dependable. He provided me important updates and was there to answer any questions that I had. Lastly, he was professionally and respectful at all times!

Margaret Njoroge

Every moment spent with Sherri Sembly as our Realtor was a good experience and a learning experience .

Sherri’s knowledge and professionalism made my wife and I know that there would be a great conclusion concerning our business experience. I know what Sherri Sembly did for us she can do for you. We rate her as Outstanding. Sincerely Goldie & Frances Phillips

Goldie S. Phillips Jr.

She did a great job all the way through the process and kept me inform along the way.

She helped with staging the house and did things digitally, like using a system for informing the seller and agents when they would like to come and show your house (great for planning your time). She also provided some names of contractors to help with some of the work needed for the house and they were at reasonable rates and did a great job. During the contract phase, she also used a system to electronically sign certain documents needed prior to settlement. She asked to be cc on all correspondence you sent out which helped out at settlement. I had an issue with the title company not filling out the wire part for sending money for my settlement on the next day and she had it for me in a few minutes. This was something the title company should of done (selected by buyer), but she was able to help me quickly. Would recommend her to any one.

David Drummond

Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Sherri helped out when my realtor went out on maternity leave and it was a seamless transition and kept my realtor in the loop at all times so it was a group effort. I couldn't imagine a better team to work with.

Angela Foy

My mom wanted to sell her house .

She needed a realtor she could trust. Mrs Nisha Smithrick was the perfect fit for her. She was kind, knowledgeable ,patient and very professional. Mrs Smithrick walked us through the process of selling her home from the be beginning to end. She was always available to answer any questions we had. The house was placed on the market and sold within three days. Thank you Mrs Smithrick and Next Home for your expertise and experience in realty. Your the best, Bettye and Gregory Brinkley

Gregory Brinkley

I would highly recommend Nisha as a realtor.

She pays attention to the details you are looking for, and even moreso about your purpose and motivation. She cares about the reason you are looking for certain things and centers that in the search. Throughout the experience she made herself available whenever needed and the time spent with her always felt like I was house hunting with a great friend.

Typhani Harris

Sherri is Awesome!

She made home selling and buying doable and occasionally even fun, which is saying a lot considering how much stress the whole process of moving can cause. I am so grateful to have had her in my corner. Her expertise, her positive attitude, and her ability to get things done are unmatched. Very highly recommend!!

Katri Lein

Diane Hagens

Sherri Sembly has been an extraordinary Realtor.

She sold my house in two days and was there to follow me through all the paperwork necessary steps to complete the job. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking professional assistance.

Danny Reyna

Sherri worked with my son and I to purchase his first home in Bel Air, MD.

It took a couple of months before we found 'THE PLACE' because we had a specific price range, amenities, school district and other demands. And she was GREAT! She always stayed on top of things, made herself available and had excellent follow up and follow through skills....before, during and AFTER we closed. He loves his place and now she and her new partner are keeping their eyes open for a place for our younger son. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Theresa McLarney

The absolute best!

Jammie Booker

Nisha is absolutely fantastic.

I anticipated having trouble selling my condo, but thanks to Nisha's hard work, preparation, and thoroughness not only did I have multiple offers within 4 days of being on the market, but they all came in above the asking price. Nisha took time to understand my situation, answered all my questions, and made the process so easy for me. She is also a genuinely nice person and a pleasure to work with. I give her my highest recommendation.

Asia Belton

I wish to thank the NextHome group for their professionalism in selling and purchasing homes.

They work hard and leave nothing covered. If there is a problem, they will find a solution. I have found that when you have to sell and purchase a home at the same time, it is not an easy task. But with Sherri Sembly and Nisha Smithrick on your side all things are possible. You will always be in good hands with NextHome. I recommend you try them for either selling or just purchasing your next home, you will not be sorry.

David Schmelter

Sherri Sembly was AMAZING with me and my home selling venture!

I had SO many questions throughout the process and Sherri was always there to ease my mind and answer me. We went from coming soon status to under contract the same day without even being listed officially! She made sure the buyers agent was in the loop on everything and any questions they had she communicated to me with explanations and options. I cannot wait to go through Sherri & NextHome Forward in the near future for my buying experience.. If you want a knowledgeable, go-getter, who will have your best interest in mind - Sherri is your lady!

She has great follow through and I enjoyed working with her so much. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic agent.

Meghan Stitely

If you want a real estate agent that is more interested in your happiness and less about the sale then Sherri is the person for you.

I trusted her opinion like I would one of my family members because I knew she always had my best interest at heart. I was a first time home buyer and asked a million questions that Sherri answered promptly and kindly. She was patient and never pushy. Even though I just bought a house, I cannot wait to buy another one so I have the opportunity to work with Sherri again. She is honestly the best I could have asked for.

Brittany Cudmore

I am simply amazed!

This was my first time even thinking about purchasing a home and Calvin really made this process simple. Calvin guided my step by step and answered any questions that I had. Even if I was asking the same questions, he was patient and had no problem explaining anything to me. Calvin provided many options along the way and definitely kept me on the right track.

Elizabeth orbegoso

Sherri was great when it came to buying our new home and selling our old one.

On the buying side, she was very helpful and patient when we were searching in different cities which were far apart. When we finally found our home, she was efficient and timely with meeting all of our key dates. During closing, she brought activities for our small kids, and played with them while we signed documents. On the selling side, she helped us overcome a variety of issues while staying positive the whole time until the house was sold. Overall, Sherri was a joy to work with. She constantly fought to get us the best deals. She cared about us finding the right home and treated my family like her own in the process.

Alvina Samuel

Laketa is an amazing Real Estate professional.

She is a seller's and buyer's agent. While conducting business with Laketa by my side I learned a few important facts about her that inspires me to continue future real estate opportunities with Laketa. She is respected in the community. Other agents, settlement companies. and brokers prefer working with her opposed to others. Most importantly, she is always on top of her work load and has the compasity to work with multiple clients all at once. Lastly, she is a trainer and educator. I personally witnessed Laketa train a team of new agents in a servant leadership manner. I have worked with many in the real estate industry and Laketa sets herself ahead of all others. Most importantly...she loves what she does!

James Laster (Owner)

Sherri was a pleasure to work with and always had our best interest in mind.

Nisha was awesome, super friendly.

She did a fantastic job finding the right place for us in a short amount of time.


Nisha is excellent as a Realtor.

She is always available to answer questions and that was especially helpful for me as I was a first time home buyer with VA homebuyer assistance. Her team of experts were amazing and patient with me as I had a lot of question involving the process and even with the past year of ownership. She is very intuitive of your wants and needs when looking for your home and sticks with you through the whole process. I am grateful for all her help and could never have done it without her.

LaKeta Burgess was truly awesome, she was patient in answering the numerous questions we had throughout the process of searching, touring, and closing on our house. She was impressive with her honesty, transparency, and knowledge of the market. Her responsiveness was incredible, and availability to schedule home / video tours for varying schedules and time zones was helpful and truly appreciated. Her energy and calmness help put me at ease in a process that can be quite stressful. She truly listened to what we were looking for, she was honest on what is possible in the market and price range we had in mind. Her critical eye for details and understanding of our needs was excellent. We truly felt heard and felt she was looking out for our needs. We are happy with our new home and thankful for her assistance. We would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

I am simply amazed!

This was my first time even thinking about purchasing a home and Calvin really made this process simple. Calvin guided my step by step and answered any questions that I had. Even if I was asking the same questions, he was patient and had no problem explaining anything to me. Calvin provided many options along the way and definitely kept me on the right track. I am more than appreciative of him and when it comes time to purchase another home, Calvin will be my first call.

I was very nervous, emotional and apprehensive about the whole process, but Nisha was there with me every step of the way. She helped to allay my fears and was available to me whenever I needed her advice and direction. Never did she treat me as if I was just another client. During the entire time that I had the privilege of working with her, I truly felt like I was her only client. Her quality customer service and attention to the little details that can make selling a home successful is above par.

We highly recommend Sherri Sembly and her team at NextHome Forward to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

My house buying goals changed many times along the way but Nisha was always able to provide great insight and help me strategize my next move. She goes above and beyond to help you accomplish your housing goals; whether it's buying a rental property or finding your dream home. If Nisha was not able to help, her transaction coordinator, Kim, would step in and Kim is amazing too! She's the one that's in the picture with me. I'll be using Nisha as my real estate agent any time I'm searching for a house!
