Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 in Broadlands, VA.
We met Ritu Desai in 2007 when we were considering about selling our small town home and moving up into a larger single family home possibly in Loudoun county Ashburn, Leesburg or South Riding area. However the market was extremely slow. Homes stayed on the market for months and handful of showings over a week. We interviewed Ritu and she recommended us to list the home and see how things go. If it does not sell we can always withdraw it without any cost to us. She was hosting open house every weekend. Some weeks we did not have one person thru the door however she kept us positive about the sale. Her persistence paid off for us. Right around Winter break an oversea buyer without even previewing the home bought our town home and at the same time our favorite builder Toll Brothers had spec home that me and my wife fell in love with. I would have an anxiety attack if Ritu was not along with us through the process. Ritu not only helped us sell our home but purchase new construction. She negotiated with the builder (additional savings) and worked with us on both the side of the transaction making it seamless. I give it to her professional knowledge of the industry that helped us the ease of this nerve breaking transaction in a market that was so unpredictable.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Gainesville, VA.
We were recommended Ritu Desai with Samson Properties by a family friend. We have bought and sold several properties in past two decades and have dealt with good, bad and never remember his/her name real estate agent. However Ritu changed our opinion what it takes to be an above the crowd real estate agent. She worked closely with me and my wife purchase our home in Gainesville area. Her market knowledge and passion for her work commitment is indispensable. We are so glad we met Ritu and we will highly recommend her to our friends and family.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 in Manassas Park, VA.
It only took forever for us to finally make the decision to take the plunge into home ownership, but from the very moment I first met Ritu Desai in 2008, I knew I was in the hands of a consummate professional. What I hadn't bargained on was her limitless supply of empathy, energy, creativity and understanding. We found our first house within days; she spent many patient hours guiding us as we tentatively jumped through the every daunting, unfamiliar financial hoop that a first time owner is destined to experience. In summer 2012, we reconnected, as it was time to sell that very same 'starter' house. She took care of everything, held Open House and immediately sorted thru the numerous offers. While relocating a family is never a stress-free affair, Ritu made our transaction and transition as positive and painless as possible. If you are looking to purchase or sell your home in Virginia look no further you will be happy to found Ritu.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Ashburn, VA.
We recently closed on our new construction home with our real estate agent Ritu Desai. If you are looking for a real estate agent who (1) knows exactly what she is doing, (2) who does not get "confused" by your unexpected change of plans or expectations, (3) who seems to instantly get the BIG picture, your main needs, as well as your emotional level (4) who is able to PROFESSIONALLY guide you through the path to get to your main target, I think you could not have anyone do it better than Ritu Desai. Ritu, is well experienced and professional that understands what is best for the client. She is knowledgeable in her field of expertise, and when our transaction got up and running, Ritu answered all questions we had as promised and without any delay. Thank you, Ritu! We will recommend you without any hesitation to all our friends looking for the best real estate agent in Ashburn Virginia.

Bought a home in 2013.
Choosing Ritu Desai as our realtor with Samson Properties was critical to our ultimately very successful house-hunt. We chose Ritu after interviewing with several other area Realtors in the Northern Virginia area. Her market insight, professional judgment, and personality are all beyond superlative.

Ritu took the time to listen to our wants, evaluate our means, and help frame our expectations for buying our first home. As we navigated in an extremely tight Fairfax housing market—where inventory was at this lowest point, reasonably priced properties moved within days with multiple offers and overpriced ones languished for months—Ritu was instrumental in helping us stay level-headed.

She counseled patience when the owner of the first house we fell in love with and made an offer on was unwilling to budge on an unrealistic list price. She helped us stay enthusiastic when we saw a string of lackluster properties. And ultimately, she helped us purchase a stunning house in heart of Fairfax within four days of listing, during an intense bidding war that erupted before the open house even occurred. If it hadn’t been for her guidance on selecting a lender, pricing our bid and escalation clause, and negotiating other terms of the offer, I’m certain we would not have gotten the dream house.

Her knowledge and guidance throughout the inspection and closing processes was similarly indispensable. Everything from signing the offer (love your esignatures) through getting the keys in our hands went smoothly, with Ritu anticipating and resolving issues before we were ever aware of them.

In short, we will be recommending Ritu Desai to all of our friends and family in the future. Thank you!!!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Leesburg, VA.
Ritu will be the best real estate agent you will ever work with. Period. She's very responsive, always answers or returns your calls, takes the time to research the property before a showing, and takes an active interest in finding you properties that interest you.

Some facts about how Ritu helped us with our recent property sale and purchase:

- Ritu helped us sell our townhome in Centreville for $5k more than any other townhouse in the neighbourhood. - Ritu helped us buy our new townhome in Leesburg for $10k below the appraised value and $7k below the asking price (that too with multiple offers!)

Ritu has a large network of realtor friends and acquaintances that help tremendously when negotiating property sales and purchases.

We interviewed and worked with several realtors before finally selecting Ritu and we've never looked back since selecting her. Rest assured, if you decide to select Ritu for your real estate needs you will not be disappointed.

Keep up the great work Ritu. I look forward to working with you again.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2008 for approximately $275K in Manassas Park, VA.
I strongly agree with Croceja's comments about Ritu. I had exact same experience with her as a realtor and fulfilled my needs. I was extremely satisfied.

I purchased a house in NOVA in the winter of 2008 and sold it in 2012. She went above and beyond to make this process as easiest as possible. She is highly recommended and I, as a client, is recommending anybody who is interested in buying houses in NOVA should use her!

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Centreville, VA.
I just purchased a house in NOVA in the spring of 2011 and chose Ritu as our agent. She went beyond the sale and took the time to understand our needs, was patient in showing us many different properties, and helped us to negotiate the best price for our home. She also followed up with us after we closed on the home to make sure that all other loose ends were tied up. I would recommend her especially if you need some advice on how to navigate this area's market and are not exactly sure on where you want to purchase.
