“Farida Saafi is a skilled real estate professional who exhibits professionalism, business acumen, and excellent negotiating skills. Our home went under contract within 3 days after going on the market DURING a pandemic. We sold our home at a great price and closed in less than 30 days. Farida is the reason for this success. She gave us excellent advice regarding staging, made sure we had fantastic photos and marketing materials, and effectively publicized our listing. We will always be grateful to her for taking such good care of us. ”
Stephanie, Ashburn (Seller)
“Farida, is an asset to Century 21 Redwood. From the moment she took me on as a client, she was diligent, responsive, and transparent. Farida walked and guided me every step of the way to make sure I was able to secure a home and secure reasonable financing. She understood my needs and she came through. She was very present in the process, even when I sent e-mails and texts passed normal business hours. If you are in search of a new home, please do yourself a favor and get Farida! ”
Shar Lena (Buyer)
“While we were randomly paired with Farida as a part of a corporate relocation package, we quickly knew that we were in good hands. She listened carefully to our priorities and provided us with key market insight. This was critical for us as we were selling a home in a completely different and less urban area while the market in NoVA was moving at an incredibly fast pace. As time went on, Farida did an excellent job of honing in on what was important to us and directing us to properties that fit our needs. Farida's attention to detail and high level of responsiveness was critical to the success of our real estate purchase. We never had to worry that she wasn't doing her utmost to secure the deal and ensure that all i's were dotted and t's were crossed. While she did an excellent job every step of the way, her skills particularly shone during the contract execution phase. She was competent and incredibly detail oriented and we had complete trust that she was our advocate during some significant challenges with inspections and appraisals. Farida was a calming influence when things were bumpy. Her steadfast demeanor and confidence in us and our decision-making capabilities were paramount. Although the process was long, in the end we found a home that we are thrilled to live in and we couldn't have done it without her!”
Chelsea Gates, Aldie VA (Buyer)
“The home buying process is a very stressful and uncertain at times but Farida was extremely helpful and optimistic throughout the process and helped me secure not only my first home , but also my dream home. I’m so grateful to have her and couldn’t recommend her more. Farida is top notch in what she does she was able to understand my homeowner needs she is very professional and knowledgeable and she always has your best interest in mind. Thank you so much Farida!!! ”
Ahmad shah (Buyer)
“Farida Saafi was very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful throughout every step of the process. Many times she has gone above and beyond my expectations of a real estate agent to fight for the best deals on my behalf; not just in negotiating the price of the property, but for any other services that I needed. She was easy to reach at any time even on weekends for questions or concerns, and worked continuously to ensure timely closing. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent especially as a first time homebuyer and would highly recommend her service to family and friends.”
Daniel S (Buyer)
“Farida is very friendly, proffessional and humble. She is always reachable and very responsive and has great communication skills. I highly recommend her as a great realtor who can get things done at its best.”
Omar, Alexandria (Buyer)
“Chose based on USAA and Century 21 ratings. Very helpful and wonderful person to work with. Was extremely accommodating and pleasant to work with. Best agent I've worked with.”
Nathan Kramer, Manassas (Buyer)
“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)
“My husband and I were out of state, first time home buyers. Buying a home was overwhelming, but Farida Saafi made the whole process easy.

If we ever want buy another home we will ask Farida Saafi to help us with the purchase. Excellent !!! Great!!!”
Mr. and Mrs. Rasuli Woodbridge, Va. (Buyer)

If I had to sell any property, I would choose Farida to work with. Excellent and very knowledgeable in making best decisions. Thanks for the hard work. I am your friend for life. ”
David Grimes (Seller)
“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 first met with Farida Saafi for our initial meeting and she was so understanding and knowledgeable; she immediately recognized our likes/dislikes for property searching. 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. We had a great experience buying our first home and are extremely happy about the outcome! I would definitively recommend Century 21 Redwood and Farida Saafi to all my family and friends! ”
