- Entire Team was Superb and through their
diligence my Property Sold Very Quickly. They never stopped making me feel like I was
Top Priority. Even after I sold and moved into my new place they still showed a very
Warm Personal Side to show interest in my life and that is Rare in the Business
"My experience was mostly with Rahul, however on several occasions dealing with his wife Smitha she was very
Professional and Helpful. Rahul from the beginning was quick to make me feel at ease with this process of selling and never waivered his support through out this very emotional time in my life. He was always there to ease any concerns I had with the buyers and I always felt that although I knew he had many other clients that whenever I needed his time for questions / answers he was very quick to respond and help me keep the faith. His firm Compass sold my property using many avenues for advertising and his entire team were superb and through their
diligence my property sold very quickly ! They never stopped making me feel like I was
Top Priority even after I sold and moved into my new place they still showed a very warm personal side to show interest in my life and that is
Rare in the Business World. I Highly Recommend this Team and this firm !!! ." -
- Hands down Smitha and Rahul were the Best. Very Patient,
Not Pushy and Extremely Responsive. Really Felt they had our Best Interest in Mind at All Times.
"We have worked with several realtors before and hands down Smitha and Rahul were the best. The first thing I noticed was that they were very patient and weren't pushy. They showed us the house and let us walk through and look without trying to sell us and point out every little feature. Once we had a contract, Smitha was a real tiger! (in a good way) She was extremely responsive, and made sure we had the right estimates for repairs. She stayed on top of mortgage brokers, repairmen for quoting, attorneys, etc. To top it off, she is a very personable, nice person and easy to work with. I really felt she had my best interest in mind at all times." -
Mitch & Olya
- There Aren't Enough Words to Describe How Amazing Rahul and his Team Are!
"There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Rahul and his team are! A few months ago, my husband and I were on a journey to find a home that suited our lifestyle and for our future family. As anyone can imagine, buying a home for the first time can be a very scary and daunting task if you don't have the right people to guide you. Gratefully, we soon met Rahul and our whole experience took a turn for the better! Rahul was so friendly and patient from just the first phone call we had with him. He so kindly answered our many questions and concerns and brought us to every listing we were interested in. When debating which home to decide on, he helped us see the pros and cons that even my husband and I didn't think of. Then once we picked the home we thought fit best for us, Rahul immediately helped us connect to a great loan officer and attorney to get the process going. He was always on top of everything, guiding us every step of the way from Day 1 of negotiating the sale to the last day of closing. We honestly have no idea what we would have done without Rahul and his team; he just made the process so much easier for us and helped us to feel confident about every decision we were making, big or small. My husband and I are so thankful to him and his team for leading us to buy the perfect home and we couldn't be more excited! In a heartbeat we highly recommend Rahul and Smitha to be your realtors; in fact, I've already connected them to my parents in helping them find a home for after they retire! We not just found a phenomenal realtor, but also a truly great friend in Rahul and look forward to staying in touch!" -
Amna & Salman Mehmood

- We cannot Thank You Enough for being 100% there for us when Times got Tough. You are Truly the Best as What you Do.
"Dear Smitha - There are no words to thank you for all you did during the process of selling and buying our new house. You were not just a realtor, but a friend, therapist and confidante during a very stressful time. We cannot thank you enough for being 100% there for us - even when times got tough.

- We recommend Smitha and Rahul to anyone and everyone we know because we know how hard it is to find
Good, Honest, Hard Working and Professional people nowadays! They are the Best!
"When we wanted to sell our townhouse over 4 years ago we reached out to Smitha both on a recommendation from a family member and also because we saw how active she was in marketing in our neighborhood. We could tell her success rate from her fliers and knew she would be the right person to sell our home. She was extremely professional and a right-to-the-point kind of person which we appreciated. She helped us to price our home properly to sell. We got multiple offers and it was under contract in 5 days. We were then turned over to Rahul to help us place an offer on another home. That one didn't work out so we started the search for something else. We have very specific taste so it was hard for us to find something that was right. Rahul never once made us feel rushed. He is by far one of the most honest, kind and patient agents and people we have ever met. We trust him 100%. Their assistant Neelu and their team are wonderful too - very kind and professional. We bought a home through them we had planned to knock down and re-build. We were there for 2 years and decided to sell and buy something else that didn't need such an investment. We were able to find someone to buy our home without going on the market. Rahul was truly happy for us and even offered advise. We then bought our next home through them and are extremely happy! We recommend Smitha and Rahul to anyone and everyone we know because we know how hard it is to find good, honest, hard working and professional people nowadays! They are the best!" -

Tamar and Ben
- Very Professional and Pleasant to Work with. There was Absolutely No Pressure. I Highly Recommend Them.
"I had a great experience working with them to buy my first home. They are very professional and pleasant to work with. As a first time home buyer, I had many questions and they were able to answer them all and provide great suggestions. From looking for homes in the towns that I was interested in, negotiations, inspections, paperwork etc he was very helpful and responsive and kept checking on the progress regularly. There was absolutely no pressure. I highly recommend them." -
- Very Knowledgeable, Very Patient and Easy to Work With

I would strongly recommend anyone to use Smitha as their realtor. I assure you only positive results." -
- One of the Most Professional Realtors!
"We shopped around extensively for our realtor before we choose Smitha to sell our townhome. Smitha was professional throughout the process of negotiations and up through the closing. Our lawyer who has dealt with many unscrupulous Realtors has also commented that Smitha was one of the most professional realtors he has ever dealt with." -

"I have no words to her professional acumen. She will be YOUR realtor from day one till the end. Best so far from the the homes I bought. Smitha will guide you and listen to you most importantly. She has all the info, knowledge and important points for your valued decision." -
- If you are looking for people who seamlessly blend Extraordinary Customer Service, Knowledge, Experience, Compassion and Caring into One Dynamic Package Look No Further than this team.
"Our relationship with Rahul and Smitha began when we went to visit a home they had listed. We were so impressed we decided that they should represent us during our home search. It turned out to be the best accidental business decision we ever made. We were not easy customers, as we were more interested in our dream house than a specific location, we kept them on their toes! We relied on their expertise in the market, negotiating capabilities and invaluable advice to navigate our way into our dream home. At a price far below what the home was initially listed for! They set the bar so high that as we try to sell our home in a market they are not in...we just can’t seem to stop comparing them to the realtors we are interviewing to represent us. Unfortunately, everyone is just falling short. If you are looking for people who seamlessly blend extraordinary customer service, knowledge, experience, compassion and caring into one dynamic package look no further than this team. From giving you the bottom line, to answering late night panic calls on price negotiating they will be there for you through the entire process of selling or buying a home." -
Greg and Hope
- Their knowledge and professionalism were well demonstrated during our recent sales of our home
"Nice people to deal with. Their knowledge and professionalism were well demonstrated during our recent sales of our home. Before we had other house listed by them although not sold but were impressed by their knowledge and advice so we hired them to list this house which were listed by previous realtors without success. So overall we are very satisfied with their service and would highly recommend them to anyone who are considering buying or selling." - Warren and Clara Lin
