Ritu Desai - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

She is simply the best!

We hired her to sell our home. From the professional photographer, fine brochures, aggressive marketing, at the open house she had all the tools to sell our home in a short period. Our tenants were a pain when they left the home. Ritu took the stress and worry out of selling our house by lending sound advice throughout the entire process. She is very knowledgeable about the Herndon/Fairfax county real estate market and will work hard to get your house sold. She is very prompt to answer any and all of your questions/concerns throughout the entire process. Her enthusiasm, professionalism, and work ethic is top notch and we would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling in the area. Thank you, Ritu Desai!

Floris, Herndon, VA 20171.

Me and my wife had pleasure working with Ritu.

She took care of everything from start to finish. She is very knowledgeable and responsive to any questions or concerns. She showed us various types of homes and understand what we really needed in our home. It took us long time to buy our first home and she was always ready to show us new listing. Even during this Covid pandemic, she was always available for any viewing or inquiries. She also helped us get the mortgage, home inspection, radon inspection, termite. I would highly recommend Ritu for any types of realtor business.

padunutula Ashburn VA

Being a first time home buyer and an immigrant we did not understand the complexity of the home buying in the country.

We were tore between buying in Fairfax or Loudoun county. New or used home and so on. Ritu helped us understand the process, the pros and cons of buying home, she educated us and hold our hands through out the transaction. We are so happy with our home purchase and decision. My wife & I could not have done this with our her help! Thank you so much Ritu

sumatras Ashburn, VA.

I strongly agree with Croceja's comments about Ritu.

I had exact same experience with her as a realtor and fulfilled my needs. I was extremely satisfied. I purchased a house in NOVA in the winter of 2008 and sold it in 2012. She went above and beyond to make this process as easiest as possible. She is highly recommended and I, as a client, is recommending anybody who is interested in buying houses in NOVA should use her!

MarkBertini0-Manassas & Aldie, Virginia

We met Ritu Desai in 2007 when we were considering about selling our small town home and moving up into a larger single family home possibly in Loudoun county Ashburn, Leesburg or South Riding area.

However the market was extremely slow. Homes stayed on the market for months and handful of showings over a week. We interviewed Ritu and she recommended us to list the home and see how things go. If it does not sell we can always withdraw it without any cost to us. She was hosting open house every weekend. Some weeks we did not have one person thru the door however she kept us positive about the sale. Her persistence paid off for us. Right around Winter break an oversea buyer without even previewing the home bought our town home and at the same time our favorite builder Toll Brothers had spec home that me and my wife fell in love with. I would have an anxiety attack if Ritu was not along with us through the process. Ritu not only helped us sell our home but purchase new construction. She negotiated with the builder (additional savings) and worked with us on both the side of the transaction making it seamless. I give it to her professional knowledge of the industry that helped us the ease of this nerve breaking transaction in a market that was so unpredictable.

JenAndDerickMiller- Broadlands, VA

Hands down the best!

It's been an amazing experience working with Ritu. Not only did she help us sell our TH in under a week, she was with us every step of the way - right from staging to listing, she also helped us get a beautiful house that couldn't have been more perfect for our family. Her knowledge of the area is unmatched and her negotiation skills are excellent. And all along she made us feel like we were her only clients, in spite of her crazy schedule. Ours was not an easy buy and sell process but Ritu made it seem like it was a piece of cake. Thank you for being the powerhouse of knowledge and wonderful person that you are - we couldn't have done this without you!!

Daftari Bought and sold a home in Sterling, VA.

Ritu Desai is simply amazing.

Her amazing nature is what led me to contact with her and help me to purchase my new home. Ritu Desai made me feel like I was her only client throughout the entire process. From day one she responded to every call, text, or e-mail so quickly and was willing to go above and beyond. She advised me along every part of the entire transaction and gave me information I wouldn't have known to ask for. I have no clue how she does it as busy as she is but I couldn't be more grateful! She is just awesome! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!"

Francis J. Wilson Bought and sold a home in 2013 in Bristow, VA.

My family and friends have worked with Ritu on countless occasions, going back over a decade, on all things related to buying and selling our homes, and we keep coming back to her for more.

Her non-stop work ethic and well-rounded, in-depth expertise are unparalleled! Ritu is extremely hands-on and never hesitates to provide her full support and consultation in every step of the real estate transaction process. Early on, she uses her extensive knowledge of the real estate landscape to offer a 360-degree picture of the market and how it relates to your options. During the listing process, she uses her wide-reaching roladex of contacts to take care of EVERYTHING (both what we do and do not think of). We never worry because she is ON TOP OF IT! She has worked tirelessly to find us properties that meet specific requirements for the best price, but also helped us sell properties above listing price in RECORD TIME. We have full faith in her abilities and skills and never hesitate at the chance of recommending her to any and everyone. She is a real winner and gets it done!

deepraj kunnath Fairfax, VA

Ritu is an outstanding, extremely knowledgeable and a honest realtor.

I worked with her for my rental property and the attention to the details she provided before putting it on the market was just outstanding. She visited property several times, helped me and wife with preparing it for renting. Throughout the process she guided us patiently. She personally took a trip to meet the new tenant when they moved in. She is very patient and thoroughly answers all your questions. I'm actually now working with her for buying an investment property and she is guiding us thru to get a right one without rushing us to get one. She will also help you to connect to the right resources (such as handyman, lender, carpet cleaning, etc.) when you need one. I would highly recommend Ritu if you need a realtor for buying, selling or renting a property. She is a STAR realtor!

JP-Sterling Virginia

Ritu represented our family with several transactions over period of several years.

She is seasoned real estate salesperson and broker who draws on her professional experience to advise us in our transactions as buyer, seller and landlord. She is timely in managing all the stages of the real estate processes. She is always present in all these meetings, including new construction meetings such as pre drywall and final walkthrough. We truly noticed the value of having real estate agent represent us along the way, including when timing was of great importance when listing a property as a rental and finding the renter.

Gagwani Ashburn, VA.

If you are need of buying or selling your home, look no further than Ritu Desai.

She has tons of experience in every aspect of real estate purchase or sale. She worked with us tirelessly to help us make the right choice and made a pleasant experience for us on three separate occasions.

hemantgarg10-Herndon VA

Ritu is a rockstar.

Right from the moment we had the first phone call she got straight to business. She gave us a comprehensive lowdown of what our options are, pros and cons, and helped us make our decisions with her realistic inputs, we had tons of questions for her which were always met with a timely, detailed and well-researched response. There is zero inertia with Ritu, and she values your time and quickly springs to action. Thanks Ritu for being such a thorough professional!

kavitaganesan05 Broadlands, VA.

I am a single woman and decided to put my roots down in the area after living renter's life since college.

I was introduced to Ritu through a co-worker. Ritu is an amazing agent. She definitely knows what she is doing and looks out for her clients. During my purchase, she helped me to make sure I went through all the aspect of making a big decision (location, structure, what certain items may have needed fixing, etc.). She was also able to refer me to a great settlement agent and inspector, though always being objective and presenting several options, each of which had their positive and negative. I received professional assistance at every step. I LOVE my home and truly grateful to found Ritu for my 1s home purchase!

awildmomindeed Lenah, Aldie, VA 20105.

Ritu is extremely professional and we got to know her well, since we worked with her for about 2 years to find our new home.

Ritu took the time to understand our needs and helped us narrow down our search criteria. Once we narrowed down our search criteria, she actively searched for a property and found a house which met them. She found our house by working her network and finding a property that was not yet on the market. Ritu also has great negotiation and people skills. She was able to work a deal, satisfactory to both sides, keeping all parties working together even when the situation got tense. We saw a lot of houses, but Ritu stuck with us the entire way, offering helpful, friendly advice.

user65032773-Ashburn VA

Ritu was so knowledgeable, helpful, and transparent every step of the way!

We were on the other side of the country and we could not have sold our property without her help! We look forward to continuing to work with her as we look to find our next home.

Tanvi Mehta

Ritu came highly recommended by friends who have utilized her services in the past.

First time I talked to her, I immediately decided to go with her as she came across as very knowledgeable, caring and straight-forward. I was not local, but she helped me out in taking care of all aspects. She is always very prompt in responding to any questions - it is very easy to work with her. She was able to find us decent tenant within a month. Overall, very happy with her services and highly recommend her. One other example of her excellent support: after 6 months of tenant moving in, I reached out to her about few issues with appliances, she replied back promptly with several options and appropriate referrals. Very helpful!

smandala1-Ashburn VA

Ritu is the best in the business.

She is highly knowledgeable, thoroughly professional, and top of all, she is very honest and extremely patient. No matter how long it takes, she keeps on working hard so that her clients get the best deal. We bought our first home with her, and she explained many technical details clearly during the search. She understands family requirements and then makes recommendations. And another amazing thing is, even after many months of our home purchase, whenever we call her for any reason, she immediately responds and looks forward to helping us in any way possible. Ritu, thank you for everything!!!!

Tarigoppula-Herndon, VA.

Ritu was very communicative, personable, and professional throughout the process of selling our home.

She was knowledgeable and shared her opinions without being pushy. Ritu helped us to obtain multiple offers for our home, and we sold above our asking price. I would recommend her to anyone, and will gladly work with her again when we are in the market to sell or buy a home.

zuser20150318102742212 Round Hill, VA

Ritu is a true professional.

Regardless if you're looking for a re-sale home or new construction she's extremely knowledgeable and always puts her client's interests first. I am very lucky to have met Ritu and I highly recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell in northern VA meet with Ritu, as I guarantee you won't regret it.

Trey Reed Potomac Farms, Ashburn, VA 20147.

Retu Desai has been our agent for several years now.

She is not only our agent but has become a friend to us over the years. Ritu has been an amazing agent always quick to respond to our messages, questions and concerns. Ritu understood quickly what we wanted as far as selling our home. She made us feel as if we were her only clients! Ritu has always been dependable, reliable and always looked out for our best interest. My husband & I recommend Ritu to any new or old buyers/sellers as she'll do a great job.

Maria & Stelios- Sterling, VA.

Ritu is very professional, honest, friendly, outstanding knowledge and hard working.

On 03/25/2015, I sold my home through Ritu. It was a very smooth transaction and I'm very happy at the end. Even I was out of town during the process, Ritu has taken care of everything with no issues. Ritu is easily reachable and very responsive. I would highly recommend Ritu to family, friends and others too

ser042491- Herndon, VA.

It only took forever for us to finally make the decision to take the plunge into home ownership, but from the very moment I first met Ritu Desai in 2008, I knew I was in the hands of a consummate professional.

What I hadn't bargained on was her limitless supply of empathy, energy, creativity and understanding. We found our first house within days; she spent many patient hours guiding us as we tentatively jumped through the every daunting, unfamiliar financial hoop that a first time owner is destined to experience. In summer 2012, we reconnected, as it was time to sell that very same 'starter' house. She took care of everything, held Open House and immediately sorted thru the numerous offers. While relocating a family is never a stress-free affair, Ritu made our transaction and transition as positive and painless as possible. If you are looking to purchase or sell your home in Virginia look no further you will be happy to found Ritu.

Johnlumbago-Manassas Park, VA.

I just purchased a house in NOVA in the spring of 2011 and chose Ritu as our agent.

She went beyond the sale and took the time to understand our needs, was patient in showing us many different properties, and helped us to negotiate the best price for our home. She also followed up with us after we closed on the home to make sure that all other loose ends were tied up. I would recommend her especially if you need some advice on how to navigate this area's market and are not exactly sure on where you want to purchase.

Croceja-Centreville, VA.

Choosing Ritu Desai as our realtor with Samson Properties was critical to our ultimately very successful house-hunt.

We chose Ritu after interviewing with several other area Realtors in the Northern Virginia area. Her market insight, professional judgment, and personality are all beyond superlative. Ritu took the time to listen to our wants, evaluate our means, and help frame our expectations for buying our first home. As we navigated in an extremely tight Fairfax housing market—where inventory was at this lowest point, reasonably priced properties moved within days with multiple offers and overpriced ones languished for months—Ritu was instrumental in helping us stay level-headed. She counseled patience when the owner of the first house we fell in love with and made an offer on was unwilling to budge on an unrealistic list price. She helped us stay enthusiastic when we saw a string of lackluster properties. And ultimately, she helped us purchase a stunning house in heart of Fairfax within four days of listing, during an intense bidding war that erupted before the open house even occurred. If it hadn’t been for her guidance on selecting a lender, pricing our bid and escalation clause, and negotiating other terms of the offer, I’m certain we would not have gotten the dream house. Her knowledge and guidance throughout the inspection and closing processes was similarly indispensable. Everything from signing the offer (love your esignatures) through getting the keys in our hands went smoothly, with Ritu anticipating and resolving issues before we were ever aware of them. In short, we will be recommending Ritu Desai to all of our friends and family in the future. Thank you!!!

Aligoubani-Fairfax Virginia

We can't thank you enough for all your help and patience throughout our home buying process.

We've greatly appreciated your time and all the effort that went into making this happen. We are now believers in the "It will work out for the best" and couldn't have done it without your support! We know we will be very happy in our new home

HydraHome Bought and sold a home in 2008 in Brambleton, VA.

It has always been a pleasure working with Ritu Desai.

She did a thorough research of the market and guided us through the process of buying/selling our home.

user91379 Aldie, VA.

Ritu was great!

We cannot say enough good things about her. We had her sell our existing house and things could not have gone any smoother. When looking for a realtor, she checks all the boxes: 1: She is super responsive to any question you have. 2: She understands the market and is realistic about what updates to make to get your house ready, and when to put it on the market. 3: She is personable. Buying or selling in this market is stressful. You want someone you can work with through this process. She is super easy going. 4: She is with you throughout the entire process. I know that is what you expect from all real estate agent, but it’s important to tell you that she does this. Ritu will be there for you through the entire process making sure you know what is going on and what is expected of you. I highly recommend Ritu as a real estate agent! -S&P Shah

saumilshah1975 Brambleton, VA

There was no time when we could not talk to her in person or by phone.

She took us through the process step by step explaining to us details and the pros and cons of selling our townhouse. She let us make our decisions without interference. Ritu's attitude and friendliness made the whole experience a pleasant one. We highly recommend her for buying or selling a house. Simhan family

Simhan family-Sterling VA

Ritu went above and beyond to help me with my house.

I really enjoyed her style - gentle and firm, she never pushed me, she was very open-minded and at the same time very open with me. Never lied to me or played tricks. I couldn’t have been more satisfied with house buying process with Ritu. Even now - if I need an advice - I always talk to Ritu first, and she always, always helps me. She is a great person and I am very satisfied with her work.

timurlaykov7 -Ashburn, VA.

During the experience with purchasing our home, the professional expertise from Ritu was outstanding.

She answered every question we had and walked us through the entire process. Our situation was unusual as we were purchasing from out of state. She provided virtual experience to allow for our presence as much as possible. These details are exactly what every homebuyer wishes for and what we were graciaciously provided with. We would highly recommend her to anyone and will be asking for her services again should we need to purchase another home.

cinchi940 Potomac Falls, VA.

Working with Ritu was a fantastic experience.

As first time home buyers, she helped to navigate and guide us through the entire home buying process. She is extremely knowledgable, professional, and diligent. She was able to find and secure us our dream home during one of the most competitive times in the real estate market. Leaning on Ritu’s guidance and experience helped to put any of our qualms at ease while making such a big life decision. Could not be happier with the house we now have and working with Ritu to making that dream a reality.

zuser20140422145515810 Chantilly, VA

I am very particular about whom I partner with especially on large financial decision and had worked through many different Realtors in past 15 years between relocation in various states.

Ritu Desai has outstanding knowledge of the Northern Virginia area and an innate ability to understand not only your requirements but also the style of home that you're looking for. She is an expert in the buying and selling process . Ritu, built trust very quickly with my wife and I and we became extremely comfortable with how she handled both the buy and sell portions of our real estate experience. She is very transparent with the process and can explain the complexities in a clear and concise manner. Our partnership went so well that by the end of our buy and sell we have already referred to our friends and family. Ritu istruly a trusted partner that you can count on!

Cyprus105-Sterling VA

We worked with Ritu from the day we decided that we want to purchase a new home which started back in June 2014 and ended this past June.

Yes 2 years is how long it took us to find our dream home from start to finish! During this time frame we were never pressured to purchase a home by her. Also during this timeframe Ritu was always responsive to our questions and always available to show us homes for sale that we were interested in. We even had a talk with her a year ago about how we were not sure whether we were ready to purchase in 2016. Most agents would have thrown in the towel and put us on the backburner for "wasting their time" but Ritu's level of service to us did not change one bit and she continued to be very responsive to our inquiries and even forwarded us homes that she thought may interest us. Once we found our dream home earlier this year she took the time to give us her professional opinion on the property despite risking the chance that we could have a change of heart and not decide to go forward with the purchase. Once the contract was signed she monitored every single detail from when we made our decision to move forward to the day we settled. Our home that we purchased is the one we have been waiting for all these years and I honestly don't think we would be living in our current home right now if it were not for Ritu's patience with us these past few years. If you want an agent who is just interested in pocketing a quick commission and moving on to the next customer rather than making sure you settle into a home that truly fits your needs then don't even bother contacting Ritu because she is not out to make a quick buck. Because a lot of money, emotions, and legal issues are at stake with a residential real estate transaction you want an agent who will go the extra mile for you and your interests and Ritu definitely fits that criteria. My husband and I highly recommend her if you are looking to purchase or sell a home.

kathuriasb Chantilly, VA.

Ritu is relentless.

The effort she put toward assisting us was truly exceptional. We put it on the market for test run and preview in an effort toward spring posting. Specifically, every email or text was answered immediately and as comprehensively as necessary, any time and on any weekend. She always had the time to visit and discuss any concerns. She never sounded put out. Extremely personable and a joy to work with. We always felt we were #1 on her to do list. My 9th house. None better.

Fallieshuz- Ashburn, VA.

We didn't expect it but we liked the fact that she is super responsive to all of the emails throughout the day, and all forms done instantly through e-forms.

I have worked with hundreds of agents from east coast to west coast and she is number 1 in responsiveness. Lightning fast with emails. In Sterling, you really need lightning fast and eager realtor to secure a hot property. She made sure all parties (buyer, seller, title company, HOA) were up to date on everything even after contract signing and getting the deal accepted.

Jacob A Sterling, VA.

We had an amazing experience working with Ritu.

She was with us all through the process of buying the house, guiding us and providing valuable inputs. She was responsive to our questions, concerns and requirements. She was extremely patient and never pushed us to make a decision. She helped us find the house which fitted our requirements and helped us with loan approval, inspection, insurance as well. We would highly recommend her

moiztcs-Ashburn VA

We recently closed on our new construction home with our real estate agent Ritu Desai.

If you are looking for a real estate agent who (1) knows exactly what she is doing, (2) who does not get "confused" by your unexpected change of plans or expectations, (3) who seems to instantly get the BIG picture, your main needs, as well as your emotional level (4) who is able to PROFESSIONALLY guide you through the path to get to your main target, I think you could not have anyone do it better than Ritu Desai. Ritu, is well experienced and professional that understands what is best for the client. She is knowledgeable in her field of expertise, and when our transaction got up and running, Ritu answered all questions we had as promised and without any delay. Thank you, Ritu! We will recommend you without any hesitation to all our friends looking for the best real estate agent in Ashburn Virginia.

Angiedurati23-Ashburn VA

Buying and finding a house at the top of the market and during the pandemic times was not an easy task.

Ritu was very professional as well as extremely knowledgeable agent and absolutely top-notch!. Ritu is not only a fantastic realtor; she was an excellent support system for us during the whole process of finding and buying our new home and renting our old house. Anytime there was a house, Ritu moved fast as houses were flying off the market. She negotiated and helped us to obtain the house of our dreams, worked hard to make sure things like contract writing, negotiating, mortgage, home inspection, contractors etc., Ritu and her team are amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home or rent a home, you will not regret it!. In addition, this is the second time we worked with her and it took a while for us to agree upon one house that we both liked, during this period she was very patient and extremely helpful and understanding our needs. Again, I would highly recommend Ritu for any type of realtor business. Thank you Ritu!!!!!!!!!!!!!

somashekarn Chantilly, VA

We had a wonderful experience working with Ritu.

jchandok Herndon, VA.

Ritu Desai is an excellent Realtor!

fokrul df-Ashburn VA

It was a pleasure to work with Ritu Desai.

She is undoubtedly a consummate real estate professional with extensive knowledge about NoVa Market. Ritu helped us in location selection, what to look out for in option selection, secured a home inspector , accompanied us during the pre settlement inspection and identified numerous construction defects. We will be utilizing her services for all our future needs.

prabu ramachandran Ashburn, VA.

Why should you choose Ritu Desai?

- Ritu is extremely skilled in her profession and knows the in and out of selling or purchasing a home. During 2018 Christmas holidays, we interviewed multiple realtors and chose Ritu Desai. She was very on-time, energetic, understood our requirements, always available (even during her international trip), knew the locality in and out, knew the school background, rezoning details, locality and people in the community details, knew which area was kid-friendly, and was extremely patient with us. We sold our townhome and purchased a Single-family Home (SFM) with the help of Ritu. Our experience selling our townhome with Ritu - Once we agreed to work with her, she came in immediately to walk-through the townhome to tell us how we can redo a little things to stage the house. Her ideas were fantastic. She did bring in a stager to help us with ideas too but advised us on where to spend and where not to waste money. She was pretty confident from day 1 on selling our townhome pretty easily. That gave us immense confidence in her. And, to reinstate our confidence, she was able to get an offer for our townhome in one weekend. I still remember her call at around 8 PM on a Sunday saying "Congratulations, we have an offer on your townhome". We were in a scenario where we had to rent back from our townhome buyers since we didn't have a house to move to after the closing. With her exceptional negotiation skills, we were able to rent back from the buyers at a very decent rent and avoid the double-move. She was very proactive up until the handover. Our experience buying a SFM with Ritu - We started looking for a SFM with our current townhome sold and the market low on SFM inventory. With the inventory that was available, we either didn't like the house, schools, or the community. We were getting a little worried but Ritu was extremely patient in showing us the houses and not hurrying us. There were scenarios where she pulled in houses that came to the market for sale last year and that was not sold and contacted the owners and requested them for us to see the house. She went above and beyond. She was extremely knowledgeable and open in telling us the positives and negatives of each house was saw. Since she has school-going kids, she was extremely knowledgeable about schools which was very important to us. She also has amazing references to handyman, roofing company, and anybody you want. We were able to find a SFM of your choice before our rent-back period ended. ? If you are looking for a peaceful, and hassle-free buying/selling experience, contact Ritu Desai. We are extremely happy in our new nest! Thanks to Ritu Desai!

nithyshy Bought and sold a home in Brambleton, VA.

In 2005 we bought our 1st home with Ritu in Ashburn.

It was a new construction home by Toll Brothers. She was professional and knowledgeable Realtor we have ever encountered. She walked us through the process of home buying. She was present at every step, provided guidance and answered numerous questions we had. In 2012 we had to rent our home due to relocation. We once again hired Ritu's professional expertise to find a right tenant for our home. Within weeks, we secured wonderful qualified tenants who have been renting our single family homes since then. We would highly recommend and rehire Ritu for our real estate needs in the Northern Virginia area.

Prashant N Ashburn, VA.

ivash12289 Ashburn VA

Ritu will be the best real estate agent you will ever work with.

Period. She's very responsive, always answers or returns your calls, takes the time to research the property before a showing, and takes an active interest in finding you properties that interest you. Some facts about how Ritu helped us with our recent property sale and purchase: - Ritu helped us sell our townhome in Centreville for $5k more than any other townhouse in the neighbourhood. - Ritu helped us buy our new townhome in Leesburg for $10k below the appraised value and $7k below the asking price (that too with multiple offers!) Ritu has a large network of realtor friends and acquaintances that help tremendously when negotiating property sales and purchases. We interviewed and worked with several realtors before finally selecting Ritu and we've never looked back since selecting her. Rest assured, if you decide to select Ritu for your real estate needs you will not be disappointed. Keep up the great work Ritu. I look forward to working with you again.

Ritu was very easy to work with and helped us every step of the way in the process of both finding a home and selling our existing home.

She was very knowledgeable of the area and was very patient with our questions regarding the entire search process of our new home. She was also very responsive to our questions and was very easy to work with. Overall, we were very happy with the services that we were provided from Ritu.

Ritu is a true professional and delivers exceptional service. You can't go wrong with Ritu if you are looking to buy a property in Northern Virginia.

Shahil2 Ashburn & Vienna VA

Ritu is a pandemic time proven agent!

She is the ABSOLUTE BEST agent and saved us from getting lost in this unprecedented market. Early 2020, we listed with Ritu and went under a contract in 3 days but the contract fell through once all the gloomy news started pouring out on TV. Then the market changed and it changed A LOT. She stuck with us and guided us through this unpredictable time to sell our house. She evaluated buyers carefully and helped us to find the serious buyers among so many who were just poking around with low ball offers. MOST IMPORTANTLY, she fought against the disappointing appraisal for us and made the sale happened. She argued with the appraisal company and the lender and then submitted her own in-depth market comparison and successfully persuaded them to re-evaluate the original appraisal. She kept us posted with any questions from the buyers in time and suggested the best and most efficient way to address them to keep the buyers happy and feel confident about their purchase, too. She is very experienced as both seller’s and buyer’s agent and knowledgeable to understand how either party thinks. She proactively found any changes or progress out herself and kept us posted if the buyer’s agent didn’t. We have hired 4 different realtors after moved to Virginia for almost 20 years and she is the ABSOLUTE BEST. She has great network of contractors and we ended up hiring more of her people than the ones we researched to renovate the house for the sale because they offered the better value. It was a tough journey but we feel blessed that we had Ritu. Thank you very much, Ritu!!!

Ritu is a very professional and extremely knowledgable agent and absolutely top notch!

We live in another state and Ritu made the process of home selling, pre-Marketing, listing and ultimately closing on my Herndon house very easy even through the pandemic times and through late fall! I had to fly in just once for vacating the tenants and clean up. She took care of everything else. She will wow you with her introductory presentation, filled with current facts and statistics about all phases of the process for buying or selling. Right from day one, she didn’t rest.. comps were presented, pre-marketing plans were done meticulously and wasted no time to market. No sooner had we listed with Ritu than we had an excellent offer from a bunch of motivated buyers! The sale process was fast and efficient. Ritu kept me informed during the whole process. Timing couldn’t have been any better! She‘s a hustler and very hard working and did everything she could to get us a GREAT offer on our home way over the asking. Ritu is everything you could ever ask for in an agent: trustworthy, savvy, sharp, powerful negotiator and also a kind and compassionate human being. Our family would highly recommend her!

Do not hesitate to have Ritu represent you for buying/selling real estate.

She is extremely knowledgeable, hands-on, honest and has a won respect and rapport among her peers and within the industry. She has been extremely patient with me and my circumstances for the past YEAR and worked with me every step of the way to sell my condo and purchase a single family in different counties. She walked me through each step, each term, and guided me to what ultimately was the perfect offer. For what I thought would be quite overwhelming, the process was straightforward thanks to Ritu's professional, yet candid guidance (she came in person to every inspection, walk-through, signing, even with a contractor to scope out some renovations. What a find, and I am recommending her to all my family and friends in search of a new home in the NOVA area

Buying a house is one of the biggest decisions one could ever make.

Ritu has been our realtor since 2012. She helped us move to a great location, perfect home at the right time. We trust her implicitly to make the best decisions when it comes to real estate investments. Ritu always has always been kind enough to assist with any home renovations as she keeps us informed of the current trends. We are so thankful for her guidance and look forward to working with her. Ritu forever will be our realtor!


Ritu is awesome at what she does!

If you need a real estate transaction done right, especially in a buyer's market, Ritu is your person! Every aspect of the process, when we needed, Ritu was there or already on top of it! We know there are many online real-estate websites that can help you with buying as well as listing, but I'm confident without having Ritu on our side, we would have not been able to close the deal on our house. Ritu keeps up with her field and goes out of her way to contribute back, learn about real estate industry in our market, and keep connected with other top agents in the area. It is all this that helps close the deal! An offer comes along with the representing agent - in our market you are an advantage when you have Ritu's name along with an offer! We also listed our rental through Ritu, she understood the type of renters we wanted in the house and was awesome screening applicants and finding the right renters, and within the tight timeframe we wanted. We know Ritu will continue to be doing great work for Northern Virginia market. If you are buying or selling a house, or even listing for rent, go with Ritu and get it done right.

sp00 Bought and sold a home in 2018 in Ashburn, VA.

We just purchased a home and can state unequivocally that without Ritu on our side this deal would have never happened.

She patiently guided us throughout our year long house hunting process, explaining the various pros and cons for each of the homes we considered. She has an exceptional understanding of market conditions, great attention to detail, deep knowledge on various home related matters and a keen awareness of customer needs. She has always provided a very objective and unbiased feedback and never tried to push/nudge us into taking a decision, making the entire process stress-free. If you are looking for an experienced realtor who puts customer interests first, look no further than Ritu. She is a true professional who goes the extra mile to support her clients. Absolutely glad to recommend her .

Ritu was very knowledgeable, resourceful, and responsive.

We were out of town buyers and she accommodated our schedule and availability. She did an awesome job explaining the market, the buying process, and the location, so that we could narrow down our search area very early in the process and be more strategic about seeing potential houses. During and after the house inspection, she helped us prioritize the repair list and negotiate with the sellers. Overall, we were very happy with the entire buying process and the outcomes. We would highly recommend Ritu!

We were recommended Ritu Desai with Samson Properties by a family friend.

We have bought and sold several properties in past two decades and have dealt with good, bad and never remember his/her name real estate agent. However Ritu changed our opinion what it takes to be an above the crowd real estate agent. She worked closely with me and my wife purchase our home in Gainesville area. Her market knowledge and passion for her work commitment is indispensable. We are so glad we met Ritu and we will highly recommend her to our friends and family.

We used Ritu's services for renting our property.

She provided us excellent service and advice not only throughout the process, but also after. We would use her again.
