Ratings & Reviews

Reem led us through our first Northern Virginia home purchase in the Spring of 2015. As a military family that has rented in the area for several years, we were tough customers... we knew what we wanted, where we wanted to live, and how much we wanted to pay. Reem diligently set out to find us the perfect home and find us a property with current and future value. She negotiated an awesome deal, saving us money- and put us in touch with a mortgage broker who made the home-buying process a walk in the park! We would highly recommend Reem as a real estate agent. She is dedicated, trustworthy, and responsive. Thanks, Reem, for helping us find our new home!

Nielsen family, it was so much fun working with you. I love negotiating on my clients' behalf, but never to the extent of losing their dream home. You trusted me to push enough even at the risk of losing the home... And that allowed me to really test my skill and my CNE designation.. And ultimately the results are you own a home in a perfect community, keeping the kids in the same school district and you as our PTA President for years to come! ?? congrats! To my Laurel Hill neighbors, call me if you are shocked to see how much this home sold for and I'll be happy to explain.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Alexandria, VA.

As an international buyer staying overseas, the time difference between Virginia and my city is exactly 12 hours. Ms Reem Trahan is so kind and responsive that she makes herself available to me on house queries at early morning hours. She provides practical advice on the choice of properties with respect to the location, community facilities and potential for rental or resale. This reflects about her impressive local knowledge and good sense of responsibility. She also takes initiative to contact the lender to facilitate the loan application process, and she negotiates well to reach a fair deal for both the seller and the buyer in the transaction.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $575K in Alexandria, VA.

Reem Trahan is a highly competent, honest, and professional realtor! Sheâ??s exactly what you need in a realtor. Hereâ??s what my wife and I loved about Reem. 1. HONESTY & INTEGRITY. Reem is open, truthful, and reliable. She is a true professional who takes her job seriously. She wasn't about selling us a house, she was about selling us the right house. She told us what we needed to hear and not what we wanted to hear. 2. COMMUNICATING. Reem is very responsive. She communicated with us prior to our arrival in state, during our house hunt, and after we closed. She answers her phone and returns calls promptly. Seems like a little thing, but itâ??s a very big thing when youâ??re looking for a house. We were in contact almost on a daily basis during our house hunting period. 3. FINDING THE HOME. Reem took the time to discuss what we wanted in a home and what we didnâ??t want. She didnâ??t waste our time in looking at houses that didnâ??t fit our criteria. She helped identify the criteria we were willing to comprimise on (e.g. one versus two-car garage) to help expand our population when applicable. 4. EDUCATING THE BUYER. Reem determined what comparable homes were selling for to propose a fair asking price. Reem also performed a rental property analysis to determine how quickly the house would rent and at what price. Reem educated us on the average price per square foot in the neighborhood, and every stage in the buying process. She was knowledgeable on the surrounding neighborhoods and provided great insight on future values of the property. She recommended cost-effective renovations that would increase the marketability of the house as a rental property. 5. NEGOTIATING. Reem helped to negotiate the price and terms of the sale. Bottom line, she obtained a sales price that was under the sellerâ??s asking price. Reem met the closing date we wanted. She provided a listing of mortgage brokers and helped us select one that provided the best rate and service. She found us a reputable qualified contractor to perform renovation. Reem assisted with the paperwork. She was very meticulous in ensuring every required document was signed and filed.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Woodbridge, VA.

Reem was our relator in the purchase of a home in Woodbridge VA. This purchase was complicated due to the fact we live in Tucson, AZ, and had to complete the purchase from 2000 miles away. Fortunately, before starting the purchase process I found Reem by doing what you are doing reading reviews on web sites. At first I was amazed by so many positive reports, but soon found that the reviewers were all being true full and honest. I can assure you that she really is as good as the reports indicate. Our youngest daughter lives in the area and since we were recently retired we decided we wanted to live nearer to her and her sister. I was daunted by the idea of purchasing a house in another state and of all the issues that might complicate it. Honestly there were some! Reem, however smoothed them, acted as our advocate, negotiated, helped us with the title company, loan officers, sellers agent and worked on our behalf throughout the process. It would have truly been a nightmare if not for her professionalism, training and experience. In fact even though the house has closed she still helps us by answering questions and providing long distance support. I honestly believe that Reem will astound you with her hard work whether you are selling or purchasing a home. Her integrity, knowledge and motivation will convince you as it did us that you need an advocate on your side working with you if you are selling or buying a home.

It was my pleasure helping you move from the West Coast to the East Coast and closer to your girls! As a mother of 4 daughters, I know my day will come, where I will be following them around. Now I am happy to lend Dr Fallows the Snow Blower and my husband.. as I know he is trading sunny and warm AZ for our cold winter months! I am here for you when you make your final move to Virginia! Congrats!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Alexandria, VA.

It was a pleasure working with Mrs. Trahan. We found the home we wanted and were able to close quickly. We put an offer in on November 15 and closed on the home on Nov 24.

She is a delight to work with and very technically savvy which allowed us to coordinate and closing quickly.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Falls Church, VA.

She's fearless! I used Reem as my agent when I bought my home in Falls Church. I had a unique situation in which I needed to find a home, put a contract on it, negotiate, etc... in 2 weeks!!!! She made it happen! Everything was done seamlessly and even with all the setbacks that come with purchasing a home she managed to resolve each and every issue to my satisfaction and get me to closing not a minute later than agreed upon! I am a very hesitant person when it comes to making big decisions, especially one as arduous as buying a new home. She was patient with me and worked with me through every concern and addressed every last detail. She even educated me about future outlook on properties in terms of resale and rental potential based on historical and current data so I could make an educated and sound decision. This was the most valuable service she provided to me because I truly felt 150% confident and satisfied with my purchase! Reem really does go above and beyond for her clients. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, you can not afford NOT to use Reem Trahan as your agent!

Dr. Harbi, I am so happy for you on your big purchase! Thank you for holding off on purchasing a newer BMW to purchase your primary residence and future investment. You have done so much in such little time. I'm very proud of you little sister. And while our minds certainly work differently, we were able to make sense of everything in both a scientific and common sense way! :-)

Found a tenant for a Townhouse home in Lorton, VA.

Reem is very knowledgeable, responsive, and reliable. Her primary role was to find tenants and list a rental unit, which she has done for my business partner and I successfully for the last few years. She's very personable and professional, so she works well with people. She's also been very good about providing advice on contracts, local service contractors for maintenance, info about the area, etc. I definitely recommend her, as long as she's not busy working for us. :-)

Wow. Thank you Beverly for this 5 star review. I appreciate that and I appreciate that you have chosen me to help you find great tenants every year or 2. I am always available for you both, just call me. I might need to go to the Salamander Spa soon! Maybe I'll catch you there! :-)

Thank you Harry & Gulcin, It was a pleasure helping you both transition into a new life together. Your trust means a lot to me, especially when I know it's hard to trust an Agent you met on the internet. Don't hesitate to call me with any questions... I am here for the both of you for life. ;-)
