Testimonial1

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their residential real estate needs in the Northern Virginia area.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested or click here to see reviews on ZillowZillow Review or recommendations on LinkedIn  In-2C-94px-R

In our quest to buy our first home, we were very fortunate to have Ritu as our real estate agent. Given the relatively modest amount we were looking to spend, we were not sure we could find something for our price range in the vicinity where we were hoping to be able to live. She spent several Saturdays showing us possible homes, was always available and patiently answered our questions along the way, until we succeeded in our journey, buying our home that we closed on in July 2008. We would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a first rate real estate agent and plan on using her again should we need to put our house on the market [although we hope to stay put for a long time : )]

“It has been a great pleasure to work with you. We really appreciate the kind of support we got from you during the purchase of our home. We were very new to the process and were very happy to have someone who took time to thoroughly understand our needs and focus on the right kind of
properties. The kind of focus you brought to the process was really impressive. We remember to have talked with you numerous times over the phone, and in person, on every little detail of the property and contracts and have got very good advice and quick readdress of issues every time. We also remember how we almost always happened to be the first potential buyer visiting a property, which was very important given the fact that properties were going very fast, because you had the analysis and timing taken care of so well.

We are always pleased to recommend you to our friends for their home buying needs.Thanks!”

Ritu is extremely professional and we got to know her well, since we worked with her for about 2 years to find our new home. Ritu took the time to understand our needs and helped us narrow down our search criteria.
Once we narrowed down our search criteria, she actively searched for a property and found a house which met them. She found our house by working her network and finding a property that was not yet on the market.
Ritu also has great negotiation and people skills. She was able to work a deal, satisfactory to both sides, keeping all parties working together even when the situation got tense. We saw a lot of houses, but Ritu stuck with us the entire way, offering helpful, friendly advice

Ritu Desai helped us purchase our new primary residence yesterday. It took us an year and half to figure it all out. She was extremely patient, watchful for what we need, and delivered results to exceed our expectations.

Property Selection: She showed us many properties to help us understand the new area, was always available in a short notice, provided enough information and never rushed us through.

Purchase: Ritu negotiated constructively with the sellers over prolonged two months. Once contract was ratified, she worked in our interest to reduce expenses. One example was to propose and get owner’s title insurance reissuance discount. She worked with the sellers unmotivated to obtain a copy of their insurance which saved us over $1200. After sale, Ritu continued her great support to guide us though the transition.

Connections: She has good relations with reliable lenders, title companies, inspectors and other necessary parts of the bigger real estate puzzle. I compared her proposals with other recommendations I received and found her connections to be reliable and good value overall.

I highly recommend Ritu to any prospective buyer or seller for her work ethics, due diligence, effectiveness and the much needed personal touch to real estate

My wife and I have worked with Ritu Desai three times now – Once in 2008 when we bought a townhouse as a first time home buyer. We couldn’t be more pleased and she went beyond and above our expectation. Then we listed that townhouse in 2012, it got sold less than a month. Then we bought another townhouse (a brand new construction) in 2014.

In all transactions Ritu was organized, thorough, and personable. She offered us an objective viewpoint on each house we toured, thus helping us with our decisions. We found her to be knowledgeable about aspects of realty that exceeded just the legalities of buying and selling properties, and furthermore we were consistently impressed by her willingness to research questions she couldn’t answer right away. She was always expedient in returning our calls, searching for properties, and setting up tours. This letter doesn’t do justice.

I strongly recommend Ritu to anybody who is looking to buy or sell a home.

“Ritu Desai has been extremely helpful in helping me achieve my goal of relocating from Virginia to California. She handled the sale of my Ashburn, VA townhome in a very efficient manner. She did a splendid job of keeping me posted on a daily basis on the happenings surrounding the sale of my VA home while I could focus on my new job in CA. Her fees were very well explained in advance, her process was well thought out and organized and her services were professional. I would strongly recommend her to others seeking to sell their home”.

Ritu, helped us buy our first house and my experience working with her has been outstanding. As first time home buyers we were clueless on what the whole process was but I was so glad to have Ritu by our side because she guided us through the whole process. Gave us tips on what we needed to do. She also helped us in getting financing and helped explain the whole mortgage process. Shes great and I would highly recommend her
