“The deal would not have happend without Farida. We were the last of 6 offers for the property. Our offer was not the highest sales price. Farida listened to the selling agent and came up wtih two criteria that nailed the deal. I never would have never known what to have bid. Farida was always very kind and caring and easy going during the process of looking for a home but when it came to the offer she transformed into this firm, steadfast and determined person that took me by surprise and convinced me to take her advice. She never balked and we won the deal because of her unwavering drive. I got amazing service when I needed something notorized. The Redwood home search tool does not seem to show the houses that I see for sale when I drive around. I seem to have better luck driving around and then putting in the address on Google to find out the information on the home.”
Anthony D'Andrea Front Royal, VA (Buyer)

“After the initial conversation with Farida, I knew I wanted her as my agent. She was kind, courteous and determined. I had a very good feeling I found the right agent and I did! She took the time to understand my needs and made sure the communication was always clear. She was always available and able to help any time of the day or week. I purchased a home without seeing it given I live far away from where the purchase was made and I was able to do this because I trusted her, her knowledge and professionalism. I will definitely work with Farida again. Thank you for finding my family a beautiful home!”

We knew then that she would be the agent to help us find our first home! She was so patient and made the entire home buying process smooth and stress free, which was very important since we were first time home buyers. She was always one step ahead, took care of everything, and made sure that we understood every step of the way.
