What People Say

"Having known Houda for years and done four transactions with her expert help, I have the highest regard for her in-depth market knowledge, attention to detail, phenomenal negotiation skills in both selling and buying role, and her impeccable design taste and vision."
"Her knowledge of the market is amazing, having been serving this area for many many years. Above all, I appreciated her patience with us. We started our search in 2016 and ultimately bought a house in 2018, with an off period in between to increase our savings. She's toured houses with us for over 6 months. I use a wheelchair, so I had very specific needs, and she never felt pushy when I decided against a house for personal preferences, even if it seemed like a good value."
"Houda has been our realtor for the past four years and we feel so profoundly blessed to have found her. In that time frame, she has sold two of our homes (for significantly over asking) and she has skillfully fully remodeled those two properties as well as the home where we currently reside. Each of our homes in the end looked like they flew off the pages of Architectural Digest. Houda is the consummate professional - so skilled in every facet of real estate and interior design. Houda is a fierce negotiator, works harder for her clients than anyone else and her overall expertise is invaluable. Her remodeling crew is terrific and her interior design concepts are flawless from start to finish. She has an incredible sense of style and we cannot say enough wonderful things about Houda. We are proud to call her our realtor, but more importantly are so thrilled to now share our friendship with her and her family."
"We bought our first home through Houda! She's fierce, knowledgeable, intelligent and very direct! She won't let you buy anything even if she's remotely not happy. You can blindly trust her and use her expertise to your advantage. Would highly recommend Houda to buy your home, she makes the experience stress free and teaches you a lot along the way!"
"Some real estate agents go the extra mile, Houda goes the extra marathon! From savvy negotiation on the Seller and Buyer sides, to her amazing renovation savvy, I cannot stress enough how valuable her insights and expertise are. Having purchased and sold numerous times with her, I would highly recommend Houda to anyone looking to buy, sell or renovate a home, condominium or rental property."
