Before we share what others have said about working with us, we want to say THANK YOU. Thank you to these special people. Thank you to everyone who supports us through referrals, liking our Facebook Page, and following our blog posts. Without you, this crazy, wonderful, so-called “job” wouldn’t be so rewarding. We are immensely grateful.
Han, Sheena and their team of folks were such a pleasure to work with in selling our home! They were so professional, timely in their response to our questions and really used their negotiating skills to help us get top dollar. We were impressed every step of the way. We are so grateful our realtor here in FL told us about the Saydams and don’t hesitate for a second in recommending them to anyone looking for a fantastic realtor/team in the DMV.

Han and Sheena expertly represented us. Without their help—and I say this earnestly—I’m confident that we would still be renting today. My wife and I had very specific housing requirements in an incredibly competitive housing market. For ten months, before hiring Han and Sheena, we braved this housing market, striking out time and time again, hoping that a technology/discount real estate agent would be sufficient. Thankfully, we realized that we needed a proper agent. After meeting with several real estate agents referred to us, Han and Sheena really distinguished themselves as the best team.
We highly recommend them to our friends and family, who are looking in the area. We’re not suggesting that they’re miracle workers, but we honestly feel like they gave us the best counsel and advice throughout our home buying process. Their expertise and skill gave us every edge that we could hope for as we navigated the market. And even when we lost out on a couple offers, their candid advice going into the offer was actually right on the money when it came to the winning bid (we ultimately offered less and thus lost out).
We had the pleasure of working with Han and Sheena for a few months, and witnessed first-hand not only their responsiveness, their warm and skillful communicative demeanor, but their incredible attention to detail and understanding of the housing market. We have no hesitations in endorsing Han and Sheena, and we hope you have the pleasure of working with them.
It was great working with Saydam Properties Group. Han and Sheena are true professionals who made sure all our questions were answered. And believe us, we had a lot of questions. We knew we were in good hands and trusted them every step of the way. No wonder they were highly recommended from family friends. We would definitely work with them again.
Living in Oregon and buying a condo in DC long distance was an overwhelming prospect but my local buyers agent at Keller Williams, Charity Crosby, suggested I work with Han and Sheena Saydam. What a find!
I don’t think I could have navigated the terrain without their help. Han educated me about the process, the area, recommended local services, and even picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off at the airport.
I highly recommend the Saydam Properties Team.
I told Han at settlement the Facebook posts are all true! Your team is a dream to work with.
Being a first time buyer, we had some hesitancy on whether we were “ready” or not. We narrowed down our search to one small neighborhood, so we were uncertain if a home would open up. From the very first conversation all the way to celebrating with us on the table after closing, Han & Sheena made us feel extremely comfortable & confident.
They guided us the entire way with things like the market analysis & approximations of potential repairs during the home inspection. Each step of the way made us feel more and more ready to make a crucial financial decision. For me, the best part was always providing solutions & suggestions based on their experience.
In a world with tons of options, the best decision we made was having Han & Sheena take care of us! There’s an emotional attachment to buying your first home, thanks for creating a positive memory that we will remember forever!
Sheena, Han, and their team were very helpful throughout the entire process of buying a home. They not only showed us around to a huge range of houses and areas, but also helped us hone in on what we really wanted in a house. We’re very happy with where we ended up, and couldn’t have done it without their help in this very competitive market.
This will be my fifth time purchasing a home so I have a some experience working with real estate agents. Trust me when I say that this agent experience has been the best I have had. One of the most important things for me as a buyer is being able to access and communicate with my agent. The communication, responsiveness and follow up in this process is outstanding.
I feel very confident with the level of expertise that you and Han possess. There is no pressure to make a sale. I believe that there has been time spent to understand what my needs and wants are regarding the purchasing process and type of home I want. Your team’s referrals made to mortgage consultants and home inspectors have been and great experiences.
I must say I am very impressed with the business model that you have and understand why you are a high transaction team. I will happily refer my friends and colleagues to you.
Sheena, Han, and their team couldn’t have made this experience any easier or more seamless! Their quick responses, network of lenders/settlement companies, and one-on-one time during the house search process put us at ease. Sheena and Han even found a way to make settlement fun!
We could not have asked for a better team to help us with purchasing our first home. Thank you!!
We are officially home owners! Thank you to Sheena Burton Saydam and Han Saydam at Saydam Properties Group for all of their tireless hard work. We first met with Sheena over a year ago and never once felt rushed or pressured. We finally decided to put in an offer on Christmas Eve and had a signed contract Christmas morning! Han and Sheena made the entire process a breeze and their extensive knowledge was quite impressive. If anyone is in the market now or will be in the future, these are your people! We highly recommend. We truly thank you both!
As first time home buyers, Sheena and Han went above and beyond to educate us and ensure we were in great hands. Their team did a fantastic job of helping us through each step of the home buying process, organizing the long list of appointments, and reminding us of every obligation from loan pre-approval through closing. They were extremely reliable, diligent, and responsive any time we had questions, even taking calls late at night. They made an otherwise intimidating process very manageable and we would recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you for helping us to secure our dream home!
Sheena and Han were an absolute pleasure to work with! They were extremely responsive to all of our questions, and we would highly recommend them to all of our friends!
The Saydam team is a well oiled machine. They use a huge assortment of resources, and hit the road running. Responses occur quickly and they are on top of every aspect of the process. Communication is always immediate and informative. Han Saydam conducted our home sale like it was his. 5-Stars would not be enough to rate our experience.
The entire experience was terrific. Sheena’s team was the third realtor I had worked with in my journey to buy my first home and certainly the most effective and professional. Every member was extremely knowledgeable and hardworking, moving quickly on a compressed timeline and facilitating things for me even while out of the country.
Han was a huge help through regular communication and advice, and you, Cali, were also extremely helpful in closing out tasks as soon as they sprung up. Were I to enter the market again in the area, you all would be the first people I called.
Sheena, Han, and their team were thorough, responded instantaneously, and educated me tremendously about the home buying process. What I expected to be a stressful process, particularly as a single millennial-aged woman, was a walk in the park. I plan on using Saydam Properties Group for future home transactions and I highly recommend
We had a GREAT experience selling our home. Sheena, Han and their team went above and beyond to find a qualified buyer and negotiate a deal that enabled us to walk away with the amount we needed to get out of the most significant investment we had – our house. They took care of all the details, phone calls, scheduling and anything else that came up. We felt like for the first time, we had a team truly working for us. We’d recommend them to anyone that wants to sell real estate.
To the awesome real estate team of Saydam Properties Group: You put our house on the market and sold it within 4 days. The open house was done in the first heatwave of this summer and our AC was not working properly. Yet you still had buyers after that. Thank you for negotiating the final offer and getting us more than we could have imagined. Navigating us through the documents and putting us at ease through this entire process we applaud your professionalism. Thank you, Saydam Properties Group!
So awesome! Sheena is the absolute BEST realtor I could’ve asked for when buying my first home. I met with a couple other realtors before working with Sheena and it felt like they cared more about selling a house and getting that commission than helping me find the RIGHT house for me and my family.
She’s extremely patient, thorough, and professional and made my experience stress-free and actually fun! It got to the point where we would pull up to a viewing appointment and my (at the time) five-year-old didn’t even want to go get out of the car until “Miss Sheena” arrived. Highly recommend her and her team! 💜
We would highly recommend using Han and Sheena for a home purchase. Our experience with them was exceedingly positive, and we plan on recommending them to friends and colleagues moving forward. We were buying our first home, and that process can be daunting. Their low-pressure yet thoughtful approach to our search gave us the confidence that we knew what we were doing!
Additionally, my wife and I were in a very competitive bidding war for our new home, and the Saydam’s intimate knowledge of the buying process was the key difference maker in us winning our bid.
These two really know what they’re doing, and my wife and I are happy to serve as a reference at any point in the future.
Working with Sheena, Han, and the entire Saydam Properties Group team was an absolute pleasure. Our sale presented an enormous challenge, as we were selling a high-value model home on an undetermined timeline that we knew would eventually be compressed. SPG delivered exactly what we needed throughout the process – constant and precise communication, professional and knowledgeable advice, and a keen understanding of the market dynamics of the moment and the area.
In the end, we closed on our preferred date for a price within the range presented at our initial meeting. We enthusiastically recommend SPG to buyers and sellers alike who are looking for a dynamic organization to meet and exceed the challenges of real estate in the DC market.
Sheena & Han were such a great team to work with! It was my first home-buying experience and my husband’s second, but they worked so hard to make sure I understood everything along the way and helped us to make informed decisions and appropriate bids to get the house we wanted.
They were great advocates in the negotiation process and helped us make sure we got everything we wanted and deserved. They even offered tips and suggested vendors to get work done that we needed post-signing which was super helpful. We really enjoyed working with them and hope to be able to connect them to friends in the future since we were so happy with how everything worked out.
It was a pleasure to work with you again, Sheena, and you for the first time, Han! You were both so responsive, and we really feel like we got the best possible deal on both homes. You both were great at calming our nerves throughout the process. Han was an incredible advocate for our interests in both negotiations, and helped us with all our questions during the process.
We are happy to see you expanding your business and wish you the best of luck! We will certainly send anyone we know your way.
I have had the pleasure of working with Han & Sheena Saydam. Super intelligent agents. I have worked with so many agents in the past, but I have yet to come across any agent that has been as professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable as this team. Han went out of his way multiple times to secure a deal for me. From beginning to the end of the transaction, he, and his team took well care of me, and honored their commitments and word. Their level of integrity is unmatched.
I used to be an agent myself, so I seriously know what it takes to be a good agent, and they have gone beyond my expectations. I sincerely wish them continued success, and advise both sellers and buyers not to even think twice about using them. You will not be disappointed. Thank you.
The absolute best people inside and out, both personally and professionally. Even with their crazy hectic schedules, they always manage to put their clients first. The amount of knowledge, attention to detail and professionalism these two display are second to none and you won’t find anyone better. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is or whether it’s a Holiday, these two are always there! (Do you two ever sleep?!)
There really are no words to describe the Saydam Properties Group experience. People like the Saydams are hard to find. You can tell that their passion for helping others is what drives them to be the very best in the business – they truly have their clients’ best interests at heart.
The way the Saydams do business will forever be the standard to which I hold others. Thank you Saydam Properties Group for being just absolutely amazingly wonderful to work with and restoring my faith in people.
Working with Sheena and Han was a great experience. Being a first time homebuyer, of course I asked many questions and Han was very knowledgeable, accommodating and always super responsive to any concerns I incurred. Additionally the offer process and transition went very smoothly. I was comforted knowing they wanted what was best for me and shared the same level of concern I had with the area I wanted to live in and the right price for me.
I appreciate Han for being there every step of the way through my process and even after closing. Overall, they were great to work with and I would recommend anyone to Han and Sheena if they want to instill trust in a company while searching for the perfect home.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work to help us find our first home. We really appreciate your immense patience as we went to many open houses and appointments while we determined the best fit for us.
Han, thank you for answering all of our questions and providing detailed and understandable responses. You have been amazing during this process and this would not have happened without you, your team, and Michelle Davis.
Han and Sheena are a well-oiled machine! They led me through the purchase of my first home with patience, positivity, and grace. They make it look easy lol. And they were so thorough! They answered allllllll my questions and were always available. Even on New Year’s Day! That’s when my offer was accepted.
I love my new home, and I would recommend the Saydam Team to anyone. You can rest assured that they will have your best interest at heart. Thanks guys!
We had the best experience ever and would want others to share the same pleasant and extraordinary experience as we did! Working with Han and Sheena was an amazing experience! They genuinely take care of you through the whole process and they are so knowledgeable in what they do! They are intelligent, always available, and will be there at every step of the way from selling your home to buying your dream home!
We cannot express enough of how we appreciate their hard work and services. They truly made us feel comfortable, stress-free and at ease during the whole process. We were impressed with how quickly they responded any time we needed them and the extra mile they would go for us in making sure everything went smoothly.
Selling/buying homes can be stressful, but they made sure they lifted off a lot of pressure and stress off our shoulders to make it a pleasant and memorable experience! They are honest, trustworthy, dependable, reliable, genuine, and far beyond qualified and knowledgeable in their field.
We are so grateful to have had the privilege to work with them through this journey! They will definitely exceed your expectations and will treat you as if they are treating their family. They truly are one of a kind and you will be in good hands with these good-hearted couple and extraordinary team!
Dear Sheena, Han, and Cali,
Thank you all so much for your hard work, dedication, and many hours put in to sell our townhouse! For listing it so quickly, holding all of the open houses, reassuring us and providing explanations when we were unsure about where to go next, responding to every email quickly, having patience and understanding… being there for every step of the process, and always giving it to us straight, Dan and I really appreciate everything you have done for us…
You all are amazing at what you do, and we would not hesitate for one second to recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. Thank you for being the best and always giving us your best – you all are rockstars!
Sheena, Han, and Cali were absolutely amazing throughout the process of selling our home. They were upfront with us with everything from what we needed to fix in our condo to what a reasonable price we should list our condo at based on the market. They truly put in the time and effort to get you the best deal and do their best to make you feel like you are their only client.
Everyone at Saydam Properties Group went the extra mile each and every time. They helped us with everything from how to get into our condo when the lock box wouldn’t work, answered every little question we had about any document that was sent our way, and Han even ran back into our condo to grab our shower curtain a mere 2 hours before closing so it didn’t get sold with the condo!
We could not have been happier with our experience with Sheena, Han, and their team.
If you are thinking about going with Saydam Properties to sell your property you will not be disappointed by what they can do for you.
Thank you all so much for your help, your hand holding, and a great experience selling our home!
We could not have been more pleased with our experience working with Sheena and Han. As first-time home buyers, we so appreciated their willingness to explain every step of the process in a way that was informative and reassuring. They clearly know their market well, and we always felt like we were in excellent hands.
Sheena and Han also pride themselves on personal service, and it shows – they answered every e-mail within an hour or so and were always willing to serve as a sounding board when we needed to talk through our decisions. We will turn to them whenever it’s time to sell our home, and we will recommend them to our friends and family without hesitation!
Sheena and Han and their team were exceptional every step of the way in purchasing my home. I was house-hunting from afar, and they helped me understand the dynamics of the DC market and taught me about the neighborhoods and properties I was interested in. They answered all of my questions in no time, sometimes at insane hours, and they guided me the whole way through the process to my closing. I’m very happy in my home and Sheena and Han are the reason I got it.
Since we have never worked with a Realtor before this is what our future expectations will be from now on! I know I was very hesitant about the whole process in the beginning. After meeting with Sheena I think both of our fears melted away. She was so knowledgeable right off the bat! And her confidence in her self and the process was very reassuring. We felt the same way when we met Han.
After seeing the first few houses and not liking them we worried that the task ahead of us would be tiresome for both Sheena and Han. We felt that every house we saw and didn’t like was a letdown to Han but he always reassured us that this was how the process worked. He promised that when we found THE house we would know it. He was right! When we found the house we eventually bought we knew right away! His patience was appreciated more than I could ever express.
I have already been recommending Sheena and Han to friends who are thinking of buying a home. I promised Sheena and Han a dinner once the house is all finished. Thank you all again for a wonderful experience!
My husband and I feel very fortunate to have worked with the Saydam Properties Group to purchase our first home. We were overwhelmed and intimated by the competitive Arlington market. Sheena was extremely patient with us and spent a lot of time helping us determine our “must haves” and educating us on the entire purchasing process.
It took us over a year to find “the one” but Sheena never faltered or lost her energetic spirit. Han really helped us in the offer and negotiation phase. He was honest, informative, and provided wonderful advice. He was able to set our offer apart in an extremely competitive marked. Cali was there every step of the way making sure every “t” was crossed and “i” dotted. This team truly delivered the best possible experience and exceeded all expectations.
Sheena and Han are the best real estate team I have ever had the pleasure to partner with. They are responsive, knowledgable and extremely dedicated to the needs of their client. I plan to work with Sheena and Han on all future real estate transactions. They get results!
What can we say? Our experience was outstanding. I feel Sheena and Han pulled out all the stops to get our house sold quickly and for the best price (and then some!). Lovely folks to work with who made us feel like we were in good experienced hands.
My husband and I had ONE WEEKEND to find a home and Sheena and Han came to our rescue. We were so grateful for their wisdom and advice as we found our perfect home where we can have all the experiences we were craving: growing a garden, grilling, and having space for our kids to play.
We felt like their only clients and were impressed by how incredibly responsive they were. They were excellent through the whole process: finding the home, writing offers, negotiating the contract, and closing. It’s also great that they have an operations manager, Cali, to help with the process (she’s got great customer service skills!) Sheena and Han have truly found their calling and I’m so grateful to have worked with them!
We first contacted Sheena and Han after we found our dream home and wanted to talk to them about potentially putting together an offer and selling our current home. Despite their full schedules and it being the middle of a very busy spring for real estate, they immediately made time to meet with us, do a comparative pricing analysis for both properties, and help us assess our options.
When we went under contract on the new place, they helped us quickly get our home professionally photographed and on the market within a week, holding two open houses over Mother’s Day weekend to get as many people in to tour it as possible. All that work paid off as we were under contract in a few days and at a price above asking!
We couldn’t have asked for a better team to guide us through both the purchase of a new home and the sale of our current home. Sheena and Han were always available to answer our questions – I seriously do not know when they sleep! – and looking out for our best interests every step of the way. We highly recommend Saydam Properties Group for all of your real estate needs!
We have been incredibly happy with our experience with Sheena and Han. We feel sorry for their other clients, because this highly professional and genuinely warm pair seems to prioritize us above all else! We can’t wait to recommend them to friends in need of a knowledgeable, responsive realtor who also make a grueling house search in this area actually kind of fun.
I cannot say enough about Sheena Saydam and Han Saydam as people or as realtors. I never thought this home buying experience could be so easy. They reduced my stress and answered every ridiculous question I had. Want in? Let me tell you a little about what they can do:
– 36 hours from first sight to bid in to offer accepted
– appearances at every important event: inspection, closing, repairs
– referrals to the best mortgage and title people who get your closing done in thirty days with a sick interest rate
– they also got me two weeks of Blue Apron food delivery and a bottle of champagne at closing
This is literally the tip of the ice berg. Everything was taken care of from start to finish. You’d be silly to go with anyone else so contact me for their info if you’re in the market!
Sheena and Han = Life
From our initial meeting, I felt comfortable with Sheena as our agent because of her straightforward character, and knowledge. Throughout the entirety of our home-finding negotiating, and closing process, Sheena consistently demonstrated the attributes of a professional whose primary goal was to deliver upon the requests of her clients.
I am glad to express these few words of thanks for an individual who has clearly earned them and by doing so can hope that both you and your agency fully realize what an asset you have in her as an employee.
You did so much for us during our home buying process…we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home.
Sheena was awesome to work with. She is knowledgeable, hard-working, acts in the clients’ best interest and honesty all around. Anything she doesn’t know, she finds out. I have already recommended her to several people.
Thank you again for all of your hustle and hard work with such a quick and successful outcome [on the sale of our home]. We will be recommending you to friends in the area for many years.
First, let me thank you so, so, so much for taking the time to come see us today. I really cannot say how appreciative we are that you took time to hear out our various half-formed reasons for wanting to think about selling our home. It was no doubt helpful for us to articulate these various reasons, even with the countless times we’ve already discussed this with each other. Your kind and incredibly patient listening was super helpful, as was your honest advice. So again, thank you.
Working with Sheena to obtain my newest place could not have been easier. She knows the real estate market very well and is extremely helpful in making sure you get to closing for the place and price that you want. I could not have asked for a better experience or a better person to work with. As long as I have property in DC, I will always use Sheena!
Thank you! Thank you! Keep being Awesome…
P.S. I still feel like I’m your only client! You are right where God needs you to be. You have to be because you are so good at it!!!
Thanks again for everything! I am so happy with the place we got and you were so wonderful to work with. I will definitely recommend you to my friends.
Sheena helped me buy my first home – if you are looking for a realtor she is the most informative and helpful one in the DC metro area.
Sheena is the BEST realtor ever!
If anyone ever needs a Realtor for buying or selling a home, Henry and I cannot recommend Sheena enough. I have developed a whole new life mantra because of her. “I believe in Sheena.” She never lead us wrong throughout the process and ensured that we were a top priority for her at all times. I am also grateful to know call her my friend.
Thank you for working with my sister and helping her find a home! You were amazing with your advice and preparation, and she was lucky to have you to go through this with. You don’t always get to see your friends at work, but you are absolutely great at your job. If I run into anybody else looking to buy I will definitely get them in touch with you.
It was a great pleasure to work with you to sell our home. Settlement was a breeze! Hopefully we will bring good luck to your business. All the best wishes in the world.
Sheena is not only an amazing realtor but a great person in general and it shows in everything she does for you. She helped me buy my first home and I couldn’t have asked for anything else in a realtor. I was new to the area and Sheena addressed all of my questions/concerns and helped me narrow down my choices based on what I was looking for in a home and neighborhood. She organizes First Time Home Buyer Seminars for people who are new to the process or just want to chat and get a better understanding of what is involved in buying a home.
Buying a home can be hectic but Sheena makes you feel at ease with all the phases of the process and has a great team of professionals (financing, home inspections, settlement etc.) helping you along the way. She was always on time and responded to phone calls, texts, emails within minutes and had an answer for you. There were plenty of times when she was working late at night just to get me an answer early in the morning.
Sheena is definitely one of the most genuine, professional, knowledgeable, patient, good-hearted person I know and highly recommend her if you are ever looking to buy, sell or just have questions regarding home purchase. She will make sure you find the perfect home that you always wanted and will never let you settle for anything less.
If I could give more than five stars, I would, because Sheena Saydam is truly a phenomenal real estate agent. She is awesome!!!
We were buying a new property and thought we would not need a realtor. But then we attended Sheena’s First Time Homebuyers Seminar and decided to meet up with her to discuss. I am so glad we did! She has been an exceptional support. We had no idea there would be so many hassles when buying a new home. She helped us in every little step of the process right from setting up the first appointment with the builder to signing our contract and following up with the builder for everything.
She has constantly kept us in the loop and has answered all our questions and doubts. When picking out the design options for our house, she helped us take informed decisions. She is amazing, patient, professional, honest, and fun to work with!! Highly recommended!!!
I have worked with Sheena on a few real estate transactions where I’ve handled the financing for the buyers and she was the agent, and she was always a pleasure to work with. She’s very professional and organized. Her transactions goes smoothly and I don’t have to worry about any issues. She must also listen to what her clients are looking for, because she manages to find them houses pretty quickly that they get contracts on.
Sheena is AMAZING and I highly recommend her. My husband and I bought our first home with Sheena’s help in October of 2011.
I can be a difficult client…I ask a lot of questions and expect a lot from the people I work with. We met with Sheena to “interview” her and knew she was the realtor we were going to use. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely thorough. She was always available whenever I had a question and always made me feel like I was a friend not just a paycheck. She was fun to go house hunting with and knew a lot about the different areas we were looking in. She also knows the greatest places to go to for lunch! 🙂
We ran into some issues during our buying process but Sheena helped us through it and kept us calm and on track. Buying a house is a stressful difficult situation but Sheena made it an easy and enjoyable experience. As you can see, I really can’t say enough good things about her. Contact Sheena and interview her…I guarantee you will be blown away and not at all disappointed.
Good luck! 🙂
I can’t thank you enough, Sheena! You are wonderful 🙂 We will let you know when the house party is — and bring your family!
Thanks again for everything! We cannot say enough how happy we are to have worked with you through this process. You were incredibly helpful in a difficult market and your level of service was fantastic. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy in this area!
I dreamed big and got HUGE! Officially closing on the sale of my house today – a lot of hard work and thanks go to my seller agent, Sheena Saydam, who helped sell that awesome house 13% above listing price!
Sheena was always fantastic to deal with. She sold 2 of my listings and each time she presented a strong contract in a clear, concise manner. Sheena and her clients always fulfilled all aspects of the contract and we got to closing on time and without any hiccups. I would recommend her to anyone.
We’re so thankful that Sheena was our realtor as we navigated the circus/chaos that is the DC housing market! As first-time homebuyers, we very much appreciated Sheena’s astute and informed guidance along the way. She gave it to us straight, was honest regarding what we needed to know, she never pressured us to make a decision and was a true partner in a huge life decision.
Above all else, Sheena was incredibly responsive throughout the entire process. Thanks to her strategic guidance, we avoided pitfalls, were able to make more informed decisions, and found a wonderful new home. Thanks Sheena!
When we (my husband and I) first started the house hunting process – and I mean the moment we went from focusing on renting to “maybe we should consider buying” – I called Sheena. My first questions were the simple ones. What do we do first? What’s pre-qualification? How does it work when I find a house I love? How in the world do I even find “the” house? I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed, but Sheena somehow (magically, really) managed to explain this tremendous process in steps I could understand. She went through each step of the house hunt, the offer, the counter-offer, and closing in rigorous detail while setting our mind at ease about potential challenges.
As labor-intensive and negotiation heavy as the home buying process can be, Sheena never let us feel that pressure. She mirrored our excitement, but brought professionalism and candor to each step that helped us keep our expectations in check. With Sheena, we found our dream home, made our offer, and actually bought our first house. A month later, I still pinch myself. Her team, from the lending agents we interviewed and the one we actually chose, to the title company managing our closing, to her inspection agent, and to her team with Saydam Properties – every one of them were spectacular throughout. It was comforting when I had a question, especially as a first time home buyer, that I could talk to any and all of the folks Sheena worked with, in addition to Sheena herself, and have my questions answered. Every single one.
After moving into a newly renovated home, we discovered after a few uses that the door on our shower was leaking. Not knowing what else to do, we called Sheena, who worked with us to reach out to the previous owners and their contractor to address the problem. Not only did she help us initially, but she continued to check in with us, not forgetting that we were still first time home buyers working out the kinks in our brand new home.
I can’t recommend Saydam Properties highly enough. Thank you, Sheena, for making this all possible for our family!
ProTip: Sheena doesn’t answer her phone while driving for safety reasons, but Siri is an excellent translator when her client is in panic mode and is freaking out.
This is the best real estate team I have ever used. This is my seventh buying or selling a house experience, so I am not a newbie. They were professional, polite, prompt, and attentive. I would and have recommended them to my closest friends and family. They were on top of everything from the opening meeting at the house to settlement. I really liked that almost everything can be done by computer or email.
Thanks Sheena and Han, and please share my “Thank You” with your wonderful team.
Thank you (Han) for your cooperation. It has been a pleasure working with a true professional agent.
My family and I have had the pleasure of buying two houses and selling one house with Sheena’s real estate team. Not only is Sheena on top of all things having to do with the listings, she is extremely well organized, responds to emails/texts/phone calls immediately, and is always on time and prepared for listing appointments.
With Sheena’s expertise and thorough market analysis, we were able to sell our family house with an offer $10k over the listing price and buy two properties under the asking price in very sought out neighborhoods in Fairfax, County.
We highly recommend using Sheena Saydam and her real estate team!
It has not been an easy road for us and Sheena, Han and the whole team have been patient, kind and with us all the way!
I can honestly say that we had such a difficult time with realtors until my daughter suggested Sheena and her team and then things were wonderful. There were plenty of “problems” along this journey but Sheena and Han were honest with us and guided us through the difficult parts with ease and professionalism, they kept us calm and centered and were never impatient as we asked probably very stupid questions and explained things in a way that we understood without talking down to us. We highly recommend them to everyone. They are the very best!
Sheena and Han are fantastic! My husband and I worked with them over the past year to buy our current home and sell our condo. We were consistently struck by how smart their advice was, how thoughtfully and reasonably they approached each opportunity, and how well they listened to what was important to us. Also, they are super responsive (more so than ANY other service professional in any field I’ve ever come across) and they work quickly and efficiently to do an analysis or put an offer together.
Sheena and Han were great advocates for us when negotiating deals and then helped ensure that all of the details associated with buying and selling went smoothly. Sheena and Han are also just really down-to-earth and fun to work with. The only downside of our real estate journey being over is that we don’t get to see/text/chat with them regularly any more.
Thanks Sheena, Han, and to the entire team for going above and beyond!
Brad and I had a wonderful experience with Saydam properties. Han and Sheena were very attentive, listened to our ideas and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. With them, the search, negotiations and settlement were stress free and easy. They helped us every step of the way and were very thorough and quick to respond to every inquiry. What more could we ask for?
