I worked with Samira when purchasing a home in Essex VT. Since I was looking at homes from out of state, I had very limited time to actually be there and look. Samira very well accomodated that. She set up appointments to see 18 (!!!) homes in one day! That was a marathon! And she did it twice! She also helped me compare and contrast the different features of the homes. I wasn’t able to formulate in words initially too well what I was looking for in a home (I am more \u201CI will know it when I see it\u201D type), but she figured it out very quickly and pointed out the features that interested me as we were looking at homes.
Samira gave an excellent comparison of different areas where I was looking. I was moving from a big city so this kind of area was foreign to me. What are the different areas like in terms of accessibility to public transit? What about things for kids to do? Knowing that I am alone with two young kids, she made sure that I knew which school districts offered bussing and how many things there were to do with kids in each community. And... as a special treat she baked cookies for my kids so that they had a treat after spending all day looking at houses :)
When I came up to Vermont for the second house hunting marathon, Samira had a few extra house suggestions for me, because she had figured out what it is that I love in a house :)
It came down to two houses that I loved. I saw both houses two times that day and once more the next day to really help me choose. Samira never rushed me to just make a choice and move on.
The buying process was very smooth. Samira also attended the home inspection which I wasn’t able to do. She suggested an excellent lawyer to do the closing. Everything was in perfect order on the closing day! I left Philadelphia in the morning and that night we all already slept soundly in our new home in Vermont.
We really feel so lucky to have had Samira help us with the purchase of our first home. We knew absolutely nothing about home buying going into the process. Samira is incredibly knowledgable and walked us through everything with thoughtfulness and care. She's a pleasure to work with, as her friendly, communicative, and warm nature really facilitate everyone being on the same page and with all the information they need. Highly recommend working with her!
