We worked with Sonal over the course of an entire year long home buying process and then also to sell our current home. She had previously helped my in-laws purchase a home so we already knew when we hired her that she provided impressive, straightforward service, and was interested in putting her clients' needs first. Unlike many realtors I've met, Sonal doesn't just pay lip service to working for her clients. She exhibited terrific patience with our long process and never pushed us to make decisions we were unsure about. She also took the initiative many times to recommend homes to us, let us know about something we should be aware of in the buying and selling process, and otherwise keep us informed and at the top of her priorities. She has also made herself available to us on short notice and exhibited great flexibility in showing houses. Last but not least, she's easygoing, kind, and knowledgable. I would highly recommend this agent.
Sonal helped us with buying and selling, she is just AWESOME...we are very happy with her and both process went very smooth, short and easy... Thanks Sonal you are the best!!!!
I don't even know where to start to thank Sonal for her professional services. This is my second time working with her to purchase an investment property. Her service is really above and beyond any realtors that I have ever worked with. Not only she is exceptionally detail orientated and clear on her paper work and communications, she also provided ANY real estate related advice. When I refinance the property that I purchased thru Sonal, she provided a 3 pages market analysis report for the appraiser so that I will get the best interest rate. The property was purchased 1 year ago!!!! you tell me, where on earth can you find such an agent!
This review is way over due. Sonal helped finding a condo in Reston during the last three months of 2011. She was very patient and let me gradually form an idea of location, price range, value vs. amenities, and so on. After the purchase completed, she also provided referals for contractors (a few of them for each of the services needed). Her referals are all good. I used most of them in fixing my place and maintainance going foward. I highly recommended her to represent first time home buyer. She works very hard for you!
Sonal was absolutely wonderful to work with! She navigated my husband and I through a particularly frustrating regular sale this past April (we were both first time homebuyers). The sellers of the home (and their relator) were difficult to work with, but Sonal did an amazing job keeping us informed and on track despite the frustration from the sellers. Even before finding this home, Sonal was very patient as we tried to figure out where to look--from Reston, to Vienna, to Fairfax, she was able to provide valuable insight at every location. Also important to us was Sonal's ability to handle our schedule--weekends and nights only--which she did throughout. We always felt like her top priority, and also had great experiences with her recommended loan agent.
Sonal completely exceeded our expectations of a Real Estate Agent. We were first time home buyers and didn't know what to expect, we found her ad online and called her, we were impressed by the first phone call.
Sonal made us feel like we were her only client through the entire process, she was completely devoted to helping us find our perfect first home. Sonal was very knowledgable and really knows the real estate business.
We had some complications with the house were buying such as home inpspection repairs, mold in the home, lender issues etc... and Sonal hadled everything wonderfully. She was also able to put us in touch with top notch specialists such as home inspection companies, an excellet Title company and loan officer.
She knows how to be an excellent agent, an advocate and a friend. We really enoyed our experience with Sonal and would recommend her to anyone.
Sonal was my buyer's agent in my recent condo purchase. Sonal was very knowledgeable about the area and I was impressed with her responsiveness. I may have been a difficult client because of my limited budget, picky investor-oriented goals, and tight timeframe... but Sonal was able to meet me right where I was at with my goals and we closed on the perfect place in a matter of a couple months! It was even a short sale, which she handled with confidence and expertise in a timely manner. Sonal is very laid back; she will not push you towards something you don't want, but she will stand firm on her research and knowledge. She was a joy to work with and I highly recommend her!
My wife and I are first-time homebuyers and we found Sonal to be extremely helpful and patient throughout our search and purchasing process. She let us look at homes at our own pace and was very knowledgable (and able to answer our numerous questions.) This is the only home I've bought, but I found the buying experience far more pleasant than other large purchases I've made (cars, electronics). I felt like Sonal had our interests at heart and did not feel pressured toward any decision we made.
Sonal, is a very nice person and very patient. I can be very picky person and she has the patient to showed me too many houses until I found the one that was right for me. I highly recommend her service. Sonal is a very attentive and professional agent. Thanks so much it was a real pleasure making business with you.
Sonal helped me to purchase my first investment property. She is very professional, trust-worthy and detailed orientated. Unlike other agents, she was not pushy and allowed me to make my own decisions. She educated and guided me through the entire process: from finding the right type of property, location, price range, lender, title company, to rent out the place and set up an LLC for the property. I enjoyed working with her very much and will definitely work with her again. I strongly recommend her to everyone.
After we made our mind for buying a property in the Herndon/ Reston area, we had no idea where to start from. Then I contacted Sonal through Zillow, and I did not have to talk to any other Realtor. She was always there whenever we required an advice for properties/ good areas and schools, price negotiations, working out the contract details. Even after we closed the deal, she still went that extra mile to help us clear out some things with the seller. It was very helpful for somelike us. While she worjed with us, she answer our calls even after the office hours.
I would highly recommend Sonal.
We recently purchased an investment property with Sonal's help. From the day we started looking for it through the closing Sonal was always there with us helping us through the process. This was our first experience dealing with Fannie Mae HomePath. She explained the process, recommended few experienced lenders. Because of her the process( which is in general long and frustrating), seemed easier. Sonal is knowledgeable around the area, Very experienced, Responsive and is very pleasant to work with.She is always there to answer questions, she provided rental analysis for us to help make a decision, never pushed us for any decision. She went above and beyond her role, helped negotiating the loan, couple closing costs etc. She even helped us all the way through getting it rented.
We really do appreciate all her effort and STRONGLY recommend Sonal. We intend to continue to work with her in our future real estate transactions.
After we chose Sonal to help us buy our home, we never looked back. She is the rare agent who is actually down to earth, and she simply gets it done proficiently. She perfectly walked the fine line between managing difficult aspects for us but keeping us as involved as we wanted to be. We hit snags with the appraisal and inspections, but Sonal helped us manage those outside factors and got us a fair deal. She is a joy to work with.
Sonal is an excellent realtor. As a first time homebuyer in 2009, I felt confident that Sonal would be able to help me find a home. Her extensive knowledge in short sales, foreclosures, and traditional home sales was extremely helpful to us as we tried to navigate this tough market. She helped me and my husband negotiate a home purchase and supported our interests and decisions 100% along the way. I would highly recommend working with Sonal in either buying or selling a home.
