I knew selling my home was going to be very emotional for me. This was the first house I had owned and I had worked hard to make it my own. I interviewed several agents and Lavina Samtani was the obvious choice. She understood what I was going through and advised me of the process and encouraged/supported me every step of the way. What an amazing person she is! She planned and organized open houses and put out signs every weekend. If I had questions, she had the answers. Other houses on my street had been on the market for a year, after just 3 weeks I had an offer on my home.
Lavina has a wonderful personality and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to have helped me during, what could have been, a difficult time. I highly recommend her. mltaylor uk
Highly recommended! This was my first home and I was so fortunate to find Lavina! Her personality is warm and caring, her attitude is positive and encouraging and her work ethic is strong and admirable. Throughout the process, I found myself confused and overwhelmed many times. Lavina reassured me, educated me and was Never pushy, letting me take the lead while she supported me as a close friend would. When it is time for my second home, I am happy to know I already have the perfect agent on my side. zuser20150529130523239
My wife and I have worked with Lavina twice now. We are so glad that we found her. She simply is great! She is very patient and really understands how to treat her clients with great customer service. She has an excellent grasp of the real estate market and how to navigate through the transaction process. She really helped us work through the home selection process and finally through the transaction. We highly recommend Lavina to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home. She just made it easy and fun for us. jonlastuvka
Lavina has been very accommodating through out our search and sale. We searched and visited so many homes. She gave insights on what would be good and not. She went out of her way to do things that your everyday realtor does not do. I will use her again and highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home in Montgomery County or elsewhere. Thanks Lavina. markpoblete
This is our second experience working with Lavina. In both cases, she has been amazing. She was exceptionally patient and helpful to us as we navigated the decision between renting and buying a home this time. She is a hard worker, has a fun personality, is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate process, and is completely dedicated to her clients. I was amazed with the efficiency which with she worked on things, often sending emails and advice at all hours of the day. She treated us like a member of her own family. I cannot recommend Lavina enough!

Thanks so much Major Brian and Michelle. It was truly an honor to assist you both in your home purchase. You guys were awesome client. I too have enjoyed working with you and your family. Thank you for your service to the country too. bneubauer001
Trying to get a tenant when your house is not quiet ready to be rented, is not easy. Lavina has helped us a lot. She would go above and beyond for her client! alex manusama
I am so glad I found Lavina! She was very active in my search process-- once she knew my general preferences, she quickly emailed me appropriate listings, and set up many property visits. She was extremely flexible in scheduling house tours, and she clustered them in such a way that we saw multiple locations in the same general area. As we saw properties and I was able to more define what I was looking for and what didn't work for me, Lavina adjusted her searches quickly and accurately.
Lavina was nearly always reachable by phone -- and when I had to leave a message she always got back to me the same day, usually within an hour. She actively worked with me through the entire process-- she wanted to find the right house for me, not just have me purchase something that would have just been "ok." She was aware not only of the properties in their current state and their current value vs. list price, but also she was thoughtful about the neighborhood, resale value, and potential upgrades/projects to increase value and livability.
Lavina worked aggressively during the negotiation phase of the process to get me the best possible price. She kept me informed of the status of the process, and clearly explained my options when it came to specific terms in the offer.
Lavina's enthusiasm, confidence, and professionalism was so helpful to me during the entire househunting process. I have already and will continue to recommend her to my friends and coworkers. P.truman
Lavina has been representing us for over three years now. We have successfully purchased and sold one property with her and are currently looking for more investments using Lavina's local expertise. astranova
Lavina demonstrated a professional relationship with our interests as her first priority. We were informed of the entire selling/buying process in a timely fashion. saltz777
As a first time homebuyer I was blown away with the service, professionalism and flexibility Lavina displayed. She was a tremendous help with me. I reflect on my purchase over a year ago and am amazed at how unstressful the entire process was. user1406264
Very knowledgeable and resourceful,provided expert guidance to help us purchase our first home.Great person to work with, especially for 1st time buyers Ajay Rajadnye
Lavina Samtani helped us sell our home and was very knowledgeable and helpful with the entire process beginning with changes and updates needed to the home to the timing of putting it on the market. She also helped us every step of the way through the negotiation and closing which involved juggling several out of state schedules and a holiday. She was always positive, calm and professional.

I have never sold a house before and Ms. Samtani walked me through everything. I put all my trust in her and she came through. She would get my recommdation to help anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house. Nancy Hallman Hansen
It's such a pleasure working with Lavina Samtani who represented me and my husband in selling our townhome. She guided us through the entire process with stress-free home-selling experience from staging the house to closing the deal. She is knowledgeable; knows the market inside and out , easy going, very professional, responsive and diligent. And most important, she will fight for what you deserves. We are nothing but pleased with her and her expertise and we definitely recommend her to everyone. utari.mayang
I was very happy with Lavina as my buying agent. I worked with her to help find a home for my parents, who at the time lived across the country. She was able to help us with certain parts of Montgomery County and Prince George's County, but I understand that she also services areas beyond.
Lavina was very active in the whole process and went above and beyond what I would have expected an agent to do for me. I also felt like she was on my side, not just interested in the sale, but interested in making sure that my parents, myself and my husband found exactly what we were looking for at a price that we were comfortable with.
I would highly recommend Lavina as an agent. She is someone who I was very happy to have representing my interests in buying and negotiating. She remained extremely helpful after the sale of the house as my parents were relocating to a brand new area with which they were not at all familiar. For anyone who is looking for an agent, I can't emphasize enough how much you should find someone who is really passionate about their work and your interests-- look online for advice on all the questions you should be asking because it is too easy to find someone who is basically just showing you houses and not helping through the process.

Lavina Samtani has been very helpful in the sale of my home. She is definitely a agent that care about customer desires and will do everything possible to ensure that customer gets the best deal.
She is # 1 in my book.
