real estate testimonials

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their Chantilly and Northern Virginia real estate needs.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested or click here to see reviews on ZillowZillow Review or recommendations on Linked In Linked In Profile

 

 

"As first-time homebuyers, we were a little intimidated by all of the details that come with purchasing a new home. Donny helped alleviate all of our concerns and made the process easy to understand and actually enjoyable! He patiently explained every step to us, answered our endless questions, and showed us countless houses (always accommodating our busy work schedules). We enjoyed working with Donny not only because of his thorough knowledge of the area and depth of experience, but because he is a genuinely nice person who cares about his clients and their happiness. We would recommend Donny to any of our family and friends."

Lee Zachos and Kristin Franks, Oakton, Virginia

 

"We would like to say that we were very happy with our experience with Donny Samson as our realtor. Donny sold our home and assisted us in buying a new one. Donny was able to make a process that can often times be difficult and stressful into a process that we found enjoyable and fun. We put complete trust in his knowledge and expertise and he did not let us down. Donny was always patient in answering our many questions and was prompt in returning phone calls and e-mails. We would highly recommend Donny Samson and would absolutely work with him again in the future."

 "Rick and I had expectations of what we wanted in our Real Estate Agent. We wanted someone that listened to the details on how we wanted to sell our home, but still wanted objective feedback. We preferred using the Internet as a way to advertise our property, but still wanted the personal touch when it came to dealing with all concerned. We wanted someone who we could get a hold of when it came to last minute questions, but also knew how to keep a respectable level of communication. We wanted someone who was sensitive to our needs throughout the whole process. You and Samson Properties surpassed our expectations. Your professionalism showed through at all times - we could not have picked a better agent. There will be no hesitation in recommending Donny Samson with Samson Properties when someone asks if they know of a really good real estate agent. Best wishes to you and our many thanks"

Rick and Marty Wells, Sterling, Virginia

 

"Donny Samson is a great realtor. His knowledge is remarkable and he explains all aspects of buying and selling very clearly. Donny always responds to e mails, messages, or texts very promptly and never made me feel that any question was too small. I appreciate his positive attitude and I truly do not know how he balances his family, faith, fun, friends, and his career so seamlessly. I would recommend Donny Samson to anyone in Northern Virginia."

Linda, Centreville, Virginia

 

"It was a pleasure every step of the way for us. Your professionalism and knowledge of the business can't be beat. You made house shopping fun for us, and you were always prepared and able to answer all of our many questions. You were incredibly prompt in responding to all of our emails and phone calls. Your professionalism and courteousness are unparalleled. You impressed us so much! Thank you for everything you've done for us. We could not be happier in our new home. We will always count on you for our real estate needs in the future." 

Mark and Jenny, Ashburn, Virginia

 

"We really appreciate the professionalism you and your company show and everything you have done for us Donny. I have to tell you coming from my experience in sales you are good at what you do and you guys have a very good approach to the real estate business. You have made this a great and easy experience and you do not find great service nowadays. I will make sure your name is put out there whenever I have friends looking for homes or trying to sell their homes. Thanks for the great service Donny. Thank you for going above and beyond our expectations."

Paul Gunning, Centreville to Haymarket, Virginia

 

"We love the new house. Everything is great. You and Kevin (Wells Fargo) made the home buying process very smooth and painless. If anyone asks we are very quick to recommend the both of you."
Patrick and Kathryn Leahy, Centreville, Virginia

 

"Donny made our first homebuying experience an incredibly pleasant one. He was unbelievably quick to respond to our questions and requests and walked us through the entire process with a consistently professional and courteous manner. We cannot thank Donny enough for helping us find the perfect home. We began recommending him to friends after our first meeting and will certainly continue to do so."

Matt and Annie, Sterling, Virginia

 

 

 

"Donny helped me purchase my first home and I love it! I highly recommend using Samson Realty to anyone considering purchasing a new home. Donny walked me through the process of purchasing a home and really made me comfortable with the entire situation. I looked at over a dozen homes in person with Donny and he was always very patient and his extensive knowledge in the industry made me understand how important it is to have a good real estate agent. Also, he made the whole process easier by always being available at times that were convenient for me. Eventually I found a great home which met all my specific needs. I honestly feel he wanted me to be happy in my new home, not just make a sale. Samson Realty was with me all the way and I can say that they gave great customer service and got me a great deal on my new home."

Kevin McGunnigle, Fairfax, Virginia

 

 

 

"Where do I begin, Donny? My house in Herndon had been on the market with another realtor for six months with little activity as of October 2007. I called you and after hearing my story (needing to sell my house in Herndon to move to California to take care of my 92-year old parents), your promise to me was to get my house sold as quickly as possible with as much profit as possible. During that initial two and a half hour conversation I was impressed with your ethics, values, standards and commitment - both to your profession and to your clients.
Also during that conversation you said things that I not only WANTED to hear, but I NEEDED to hear, as a concerned seller. Your desire to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest with potential buyers who didnĎt have a realtor, your approach to where the listing would be posted including internet sites, your ability to keep me informed as to market situations in my immediate area, all made a difficult and tedious situation much easier and less stressful, especially in a downward spiraling real estate market. At every turn I was informed, updated, the communication was constant AND honest. What more can a person ask for?
By early February, we had gone through two months of incredible INCREASING activity and had two offers on the table. Through your ability, knowledge and experience, you were able to bring the best offer to the table for me - both in value and closing time. I know you worked hard, unrelentingly and conscientiously on those offers to fulfill your promise to me - and my family - and you did, hands down, Donny. You are a person who takes your commitments and promises seriously - and fulfills them. A true rarity in this day and time. God bless you, Donny.
My best to you and your family always, Donny. Any time you and Meredith (and the kids) want to do a Napa-Sonoma-Mendocino get-a-way, just call and Iíll meet you at the Sacramento Airport and provide a great vacation. You deserve it and as Iíve said before, I will never be able to repay you for your extraordinary efforts on my behalf."
Rick Spicer, Herndon, Virginia 

 

"I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for all your hard work and dedication to our "case". We know that our situation was not easy bit you never acted like we were a bother or any trouble. You were professional, efficient, responsive with a wonderful disposition. We greatly appreciate you for that. If anyone asks about a realtor, just know that I will always refer them to you.
Kim and John, Triangle, Virginia

 

"Donny was a true professional from beginning to end. He worked hard to negotiate the best price for us and watched every detail along the way. If you want someone who will work hard on your behalf, Donny is your man!"

George and Joni, Aldie, Virginia

 

"Donny was fabulous from start to finish. As a first time home buyer this was a daunting undertaking and Donny was there all the way. Heís very knowledgeable of the industry and helped translate industry lingo and processes into readily understandable terms. Due to current market conditions the time it took to find the Ďright placeí was longer than expected, but Donny never waivered and I really appreciated that. House hunting can be tedious, but Donny made it an experience that my daughter and I actually looked forward to and in the end we found the place we can call Ďhomeí and thatís what itís all about."

Lara, Alexandria, Virginia

 

"Vicki and I want to thank you for the First Class service you provide to us when you assumed the job of being our Realtor. Your attention to detail, your frequent updates, your "bedside manner" with us and your keen understanding of the market during a very tough time were outstanding qualities which particularly impressed us. We want prospective clients of yours to know that you had a contract on our home within two weeks of listing it.

We both value the friendship we made with you and we both felt that you sincerely had our best interests at stake. That it was more than a sale to you. That is was job done properly that you could be proud of.
We would be very pleased to be used as a reference on your behalf. Please feel free to pass our contact information to anyone thinking about doing business with you. The counsel and service you provided to us set the standard for a real estate agent as far as we're concerned.
Again, thank you for everything you did."
Dave and Vicki, Oakton, Virginia
 
"We can't thank you enough for all your help in selling our home and getting us through the whole purchasing process so smooth! We couldn't believe how quickly the closings went today - much easier than expected! You do an amazing job and we were so impressed how you were always one step ahead of everyone in making sure things got done effectively and efficiently. We had recommended you before we worked closely with you on our home search, but now after going through this whole process we would even more highly recommend you to others. Please add us to your list of references - we'd be happy to share our positive experience with others! We had many questions and emails along the way, but you always replied so quickly and made us feel comfortable being able to talk to you about any of our confusions. Thanks again for everything you did for us - especially many of which went above and beyond the work of a realtor!"
JJ & Kristin Hetman, Centreville, Virginia
 
We selected Donny from several Realtors that were recommended to sell our house. Donny was the only one of the three that correctly valued our house according to the market value at that time. Our house sold in about 30 days. He was courteous, personable and always available night and day. We also used Donny for the purchase of our new home, and he was extremely useful in negotiations with the builder and explaining what everything meant. The mortgage broker he recommended was top notch, and he even went as far as to find temporary housing for us in between the sale of our house and when we could move into our new house. Donny did everything we could ask of him and always went above and beyond. I would say that he was the consummate realtor and we have recommended him several times to friends and neighbors.

Chip Mayan, Aldie, Virginia

 

Your knowledge of the real-estate industry & Northern VA is important. But the most important thing to me & your best quality was your availability. You always answered your phone. If you didnít answer it was because you were in a meeting or with another client and I knew you would return my call as soon as you became available. You responded to emails almost immediately. You were also always available to show houses. It was a great experience every day working with you.
J.D. and Nicki Detwiler, Chantilly, Virginia

 

Working with Donny to find my first home was a truly satisfying experience. As a first-time home buyer, I had endless questions and was probably a little difficult to work with. Nonetheless, Donny was always willing to answer my questions, was extremely responsive, and ultimately helped me find my first home which I am extremely happy in.

Chris, Oakton, Virginia

 

Now that Iíve been in my beautiful new home for ten days I finally have a moment to sit down and let you know how much I appreciate all that you have done to make this possible for me. After owning my previous property for so many years I was somewhat anxious about trying to sell it and find a new home. Thank you for everything you did to make this as easy as possible.

Your knowledge, your patience, and your generosity and flexibility with your time helped me immeasurably. You and Kevin (Wells Fargo) made the home buying process very calm and reassuring.

I saved the brochure that Samson Realty and your photographer presented on my previous home because it was so gorgeous! (I wanted to show friends who are looking for a great realtor in the future.) I would recommend you to anyone who is looking for someone highly qualified.

Linda Ridley, Oakton to Centreville, Virginia

 

Our home buying experience with Donny was excellent. We had lots of questions since we were first time home buyers. Donny was always prompt to return any replies to our questions and concerns and was always on time to our meetings. Not only did we he give us valuable advice on the current market situation to help us find the perfect home, but we always felt that he was looking out for our best interests. He made the entire processs seem like he was helping out a good friend or family memeber. We would highly recommend Donny to anyone looking for a new home especially first time home buyers. 

Jamie and Daniel Degracia to Aldie, Virginia

 

Donny helped us find our new home almost a year ago and we continue to enjoy it more and more every day. Through out the several months that we were looking for a place Donny was always available when we called. We never heard the words "it's my day off", instead he would always do whatever possible to meet with us or find the information that we were looking for as soon as possible. We were very picky when it came to our search for a home and Donny was more than patient with us as we looked at more than twenty different places across Loudoun County. After helping us find our home we referred Donny to some family members who he helped sell there house. In addition, everyone that we dealt with from Samson Properties and their partners were helpful and friendly. We would recommend Donny to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

With Donny Samson, you can check any worries at the door. Donny is great! He gives honest, knowledgeable advice and is always so happy to help. He would answer any question we had within minutes. Our work and personal schedules were not very convenient, but Donny was always willing and available to be there and show us houses. When we werenít able to make the final home inspection, Donny insisted on going there himself just to make sure nothing major had happened to the house before we closed. He stayed late with us writing an offer on our dream house (which we got!) and was even willing to miss a personal event to stay with us at a closing that lasted longer than expected. On top of all that, Donny gave as a credit back on our closing costs (where else can you find that?) and then followed through after the deal was complete by checking in on us a few times to see how things were working out with our new home. We would recommend Donny to anyone without hesitation.

Dear Samson Properties,

I am writing to thank you for helping me find the perfect new home for my family. Moving from overseas into a new area was a heavy demand, but finding our new house didnít involve much stress. I could honestly and in good faith refer your company to any family and friends needing realty services in the Northern Virginia area.

I would like to expressly praise Donny Samson, who was my realtor. I found Samson Properties on an internet search online and liked what I saw on their website. After doing some more research into Samson Properties, I was happy to find you are a family operated business with an excellent reputation in this area. Donny immediately contacted me via email since I was living overseas and set up a search of what I needed in terms of a house.

Even though I had never stepped foot into his office, Donny worked with me online over several months, often sending me emails and taking time out of his day (since I was 12 hours ahead of US time overseas) to send me updates and check on the status of my move, and to make sure I would be able to find a home for my family once I arrived here.

I was very surprised and found it impressive that Donny always put my interests and/or concerns above profits. He made us feel like my family and I were his most important clients even though his appointment calendar was always busy. Donny and his staff were tremendously supportive of my family in moving to this area and it certainly made all the difference in our feeling welcome into this area. We couldnít have had a better greeting into Chantilly and we are sure that you provide all your clients with the same professionalism and courtesy that you extend to us.

Again, we are grateful for all your support, time and attention in finding our perfect home. You were also instrumental in getting us thru the mortgage process so that we were able to get our home in under 30 days. We are super pleased with our new construction home in Chantilly and have settled into the area quickly. Thank you Donny for your excellent service and we will keep in touch!

Marliene, Chantilly, Virginia

 

Donny was a great help when purchasing our first home. My wife Kim and I both were first time home buyers and Donny helped us through the entire process with ease. He's very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Virginia and was always very accessable, even nights and weekend! I would recommend Donny as a trusted realtor for anyone buying their first or second home."
