      Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $75K in Frederick, MD.
      You might not find a direr situation than my own. Before I met Samer Kuraishi of A-K Real Estate, I had negative equity in an Investment Property, a LOT of land, 5633 Bartonsville Rd Frederick, MD 21704 that had a fair market value of at least $210,000 LESS than my Loan Amount. In other words I: - was Facing Foreclosure - was Facing a Deficiency Judgment of $210,000+ upon Short Sale or Foreclosure. - owned Property difficult to sell, a LOT of land. - had a Lender that was uncooperative and wouldn't accept reasonable offers Samer Kuraishi’s knowledge, ability, and hard work ethic has significantly contributed to my family’s long-term financial stability. Samer was successfully able to: (1) Complete a Short Sale of my investment property and (2) Help me avoid a DEFICIENCY JUDGMENT by NEGOTIATING with my lender on my behalf. I was relieved of over $210,000 of debt owed to my lender and avoided a “foreclosure” on my credit. At closing I was reviewing the closing docs and to my amazement, the lender signed an agreement to not pursue a deficiency judgment. Unbelievable this was pulled off! This means now I can qualify for college tuition loans for my children, keep my security clearance, qualify to buy a home next year (opposed to waiting 7 yrs if I foreclosed), and most importantly, be DEBT FREE. I contacted Samer Kuraishi less than 6 months ago to assist with the short sale of my Investment Property, which was a Lot (Land). In 2010 and 2011, I worked with 3 other mainstream realtors, each with 20+ years of experience and a specialization in short sales. They were unsuccessful in attempts to attract any offers. Within 1 month of working with Samer I had an offer, and now, just 3 months later, the bane of my existence, my Investment Property, was sold and I avoided a Deficiency Judgment. WHAT A RELIEF! There are a lot of great real estate agents and realtors out there but very few have the special ability to NEGOTIATE. The buyer of my property was a cash investor in bank owned short sale properties whom had known Samer for a long time, one of many that I assume is a result of A-K Real Estate’s reputation for premium service. I will leave you with a few takeaways from my experience with A-K... - Less than 24 hr Response, Simple Transparent Process, Quick Short Sale - Avoided Foreclosure, Avoided $200k Deficiency Judgment, Saved my Credit THANK YOU Samer Kuraishi and A-K Real Estate! GOODBYE to 5633 Bartonsville Rd Frederick, MD 21704  MoreLess

      It was great to see multiple offers on your home and get more than list price in the first few days on the market! All the best moving forward!

      Bought a Cooperative home in 2012 in Bethesda, MD.
      Just awesome! Enthusiastic, friendly, expert, go-getter, responsive, passionate, and a clear vision – the first few words that come to my mind as I’m writing my review for Sam. For a first time home buyer and someone that worries about things even when there is nothing to worry about, my mind was always at ease working with Sam. Any questions I had were answered in a matter of minutes. Honestly, in the two years working with Sam to find the perfect place for me I never waited any longer than 5 minutes for a response to an email or a phone call, it’s bizarre really! No where do you find that level of customer service these days. You literally feel like you are the only person he is working with to help find a home, when clearly, that is not the case. If you use Sam and his team you will not be disappointed, actually, you will likely feel more at ease knowing that he is working for you. The whole team has a level of professionalism that is unparalleled. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  MoreLess
