Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Damascus, MD.

In the long year that it took to complete the short sale process, Samer and his team were close by every step of the way. In a particularly trying circumstance to sell a house, they were able to advise, inform, and perform with everything required of me and at the same time calm any apprehensions I may have had due to a lack of information regarding the entire process. I have become very familiar with the members of his team because they were in constant contact and provided frequent updates in addition to being completely available to answer even my most whimsical questions.

Hats off to the A-K team, and hoping that I never need their unique services again, LOL!

Carey I am so glad we were able to get rid of both your loans and all that debt that was looming! Over 100K+ released of debt and obligation dealing with 2 banks! In the end our team really made it happen with the best possible outcome! Short sales are some times called the long sales - but what counts is that the end result was favorable and you are happy! Cheers to you and wishing you all the best!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Deanwood, Washington, DC.

Our Realtor was available any time, day or night, and helped us through numerous negotiations until we found our perfect house. He helped us close quickly, and match up our timelines with our ending lease.

Helped me rent a home.
Primary point of contact: Juan Urbina

I worked with Juan Urbina and my experience was wonderful. He was incredibly knowledgeable and he was very familiar with the area that I was looking to rent a home in. He was also very responsive to my emails and responded almost immediately each time I needed to ask a question or wanted to see a listing. He did a phenomenal job negotiating with my landlord to get me into the condo that best met my needs and I am incredibly grateful for his dedication and hard work! I will definitely be using him in the future for any of my real estate needs!  More Less
