I contacted Sina out of the blue and looking back at the whole home buying process, it was a blessing in disguise. Being a first time buyer, I was completely confused and overwhelmed both by the intricacies of the housing market here in the DMV and the process of home buying in and of itself. Sina knows both of these things cold and took the time to explain them to me in a very digestible manner, patiently entertaining my endless and often mundane questions. When the bank and title company I chose started giving me grief and trying to charge all sorts of extra (and bogus) fees, Sina was quick to my defense, drawing on his knowledge of the regulations and having the corporate backing of Long and Foster. Needless to say, having him in my corner saved me literally tens of thousands of dollars. Sina is everything you want in a realtor. Responsive, knowledgeable, patient, and professional, among others. Plus he's just a nice guy. I know it seems like there should be a catch somewhere in here ,but there isn't. I don't think anyone who has worked with Sina would work with anybody else, ever.
