Team reviews

It was our first home buying experience, and we are happy that Areej was with us. The process went smoothly thanks to her professionalism, knowledge and amazing attitude. Areej saved us a lot of money by negotiating a good deal on our home. She gave us helpful tips in order to make our offer stronger. Whenever we wanted to see a house, she was able to get us an appointment quickly. When our offer was accepted, Areej found us a very good home inspection company ( actually, she gave us a list of trusted companies, and we picked one from that list). She was there for the inspection, and for the re-insection, and then she went there at the end to make sure that all repairs are done properly. We couldn't come for the last part, so she sent us the pictures of all things repaired. No question or issue is too small or unimportant for her. She explained every little detail, really. She was always responsive, friendly and honest.h Dear Areej, thank you very much again! You are amazing, and we wish you thousands more of happy customers!

It was a pleasant experience, and they are very thoughtful and helpful. I am an absolutely new buyer for the house, and they taught me step by step. They are very responsible, and get everything ready very fast.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Mount Rainier, MD.
Primary point of contact: Eddie Vasquez

We worked with Eddie Vasquez on finding a home. Our family was struggling with a location to buy in, so we were a little all over the place at first. Eddie was very patient and helpful through the whole process, while being very available and attentive to showing us homes we were interested in. Our experience was overall great. As first time home buyers, I think he helped us overstep a lot of the stress we hear is associated with buying your first home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Glenn Dale, MD.

My experience with Samer and his staff (Fernanda, Angel) was excellent. We utilized him as a seller for our 5 bedroom property and the listing process was seamless. Our home was listed within a few days of original contact. Samer and his staff worked with us from start to finish (closed on 19 June). He negotiated with multiple buyers to get a desirable price for our property. Samer is extremely knowledgeable of the real estate process and he is also very responsive. If we ever had any questions regarding status or next steps in the process, Samer or his team responded immediately. Fernanda did an excellent job of staying on top of things and there was never concern that we were lost in the shuffle. Samer and his team definitely exceeded expectations and I plan to utilize his team's services when I decide to buy another home in the future.

Marcia - thank you so much for working with us to short sale your home! We had 2 banks and a heavy amount of obstacles in front us but we did it! We appreciate all of your hard work in getting us the documents we needed to make this happen. Being in this distressed situation it really matters how responsive your seller is as working as a team to reach a common goal is very important! Appreciate the opportunity and we are always here for you!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $775K in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC.

I first met Samer when he showed me a townhouse that was listed for sale. I was impressed by how knowledgeable and straightforward he was, so a few months later, when I decided to get serious about my home search, I contacted him--on a Sunday morning--to ask him to be my agent. He responded immediately--a preview of how he would always be on top of things throughout what turned out to be a very rapid process. As a first time home buyer, I felt very secure in the hands of Samer and his team. They patiently addressed every question I had, no matter how naive or trivial, and they were a pleasure to work with, as were the preferred vendors that Samer recommended. I'm now a very happy homeowner, and I would wholeheartedly recommend Samer and A-K to friends and family (and Zillow-ites).

Thank you for your belief in my ability to make this happen for you! I can't wait for the house warming! Congrats David!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Anacostia, Washington, DC.

I contacted Samer about a year or so go, (after reading his Zillow reviews) regarding the potential short sale of my property that was draining my pockets on a daily basis. After talking back and forth he assurred me that he could get it sold and that "team winning" was on it. I met with his agent, Angie, at the property later that week. Samer, Angie and their title co. representative, submitted the short sale request to our lender and listed the property. To make this review short, our lender (bank) with said property was very slow in responding with an approval, but finally agreed to accept an acceptable offer. 4 offers and a year or so later, the property is sold! Furthermore, I am relived of the debt from short sale. I'm really impressed with their dedication, expertise and patience. I thoroughly recommend Samer & Co.!

Time for bigger and better things! Thank you again for the opportunity to show you we work and the results that followed :)
