Clients' Reviews


Irina Salnikova:

I was lucky to meet Rumi and to select her as my Real Estate Agent for buying a house. Rumi is fluent in several languages – English, Russian, Bulgarian and that helps her to communicate with clients who have limited knowledge of English. Rumi is a very good listener and she quickly understands the needs and requirements of her clients. Rumi has more than twenty year professional experience in the Real Estate business; she has extensive knowledge of the Real Estate and Mortgage markets and their trends of development. Her professional expertise allows her to show her clients what should be their realistic expectations in the process of buying/selling houses and this was very helpful for me. Clients’ interests are the main priority and dedication for Rumi. From the beginning to the end Rumi was in close contacts with me, she helped me to overcome all obstacles in the buying process. Rumi is very professional, works hard with enthusiasm and respect to her clients. For me it was a real pleasure working with Rumi and I greatly recommend her to everybody who wants to buy or sell a house.

Takoa and Richard Thomas:

My husband and I got a word from our church that we should be looking to buy a house. As Christians we just put our faith in God and ran to a friend of ours. He told us about Rumi because she helped him and his wife to find a beautiful home. So we met up with her and let me tell you she has been a God sent. We fell into a stumbling block on a short sale which had us waiting for almost a year. Rumi stuck by our side every step of the way. She was so very patient. Needless to say we went with another house and we love it, if it hadn't been for Rumi's knowledge we wouldn't have known what to do in this complicated situation. She has been a true blessing to our family and we love her.

Desiree Francis:

It was truly a pleasure working with Rumi on the recent purchase of my condominium in downtown Silver Spring. With the area booming and houses flying on and off the market, Rumi has the perfect balance of zeal, focus and determination, which is so helpful in ultimately achieving desired results. She means business! Her level of expertise allows the buyer to come into the home buying process with realistic expectations, which is probably the number one rule you want to set for yourself as a home buyer. With the process often times becoming tedious and sometimes just emotionally draining, it was great having Rumi just a text or phone call away to provide that necessary reassurance. Thanks to her and the awesome mortgage officer that she hooked me up with, closing went smoothly and I'm comfortably settling into my new home! Thanks Rumi!

Pak Rin:

Rumi was recommended to me by a friend of mine. It was a pleasure to work with her. She is very knowledgeable in her field, enthusiastic and professional. She helped me to find and purchase my first home in the United States, in beautiful Bethesda. When I called Rumi I had a house in mind. It was very easy for her to just write the offer, however, after we saw the house, Rumi told me why this is not a good purchase for me. I am a very busy business woman, so Rumi as my agent started looking for my future house. When she found it she advised me that this is the house we have to make offer and helped me all the way through the entire process. I am now looking for investment property with Rumi's help. I will always recommend Rumi to anyone who needs to buy or sell property. Thanks Rumi. Pak business owner

Katleen Florestal:

Rumi is very knowledgeable of the real estate world. We bought our first home with Rumi’s invaluable guidance and we are thankful to have had her through the webs and intricacies of buying a home in Maryland. She was attentive to our needs, walked with us through the steps and defended our interests throughout the purchasing process and that was priceless for us.

Marina Fefer:

My parents bought their first house with Rumi in 2003 in Rockville (King Farm). Since then, she has been and still is our family's real estate agent, consultant, and a friend.
12 years later, a few weeks ago, Rumi once again engaged with my family and helped my parents acquire a condo in Chevy Chase.
She had my parents’ best interest at heart all the way through the process, starting with inventory selection, going through price negotiations, inspections, repairs, loan application, and ending with a swift closing process despite many roadblocks. Her market expertise was particularly helpful in devising the bidding and negotiation strategy. She’s very professional and pleasant to work with, always in touch and on top of things. Rumi is not your regular real estate agent; her services go well beyond what other agents do for their customers. For my parents, she went far and beyond their expectations and we are very grateful to have such experienced and honest agent.
We truly recommend her service to anyone we know looking for a house in MD/DC/VA area and are very grateful for everything she has done for our family! Thank you Rumi!

Howie Simanoff:

Rumi helped me find my new home recently. She provided excellent service. I was extremely busy with work, and Rumi helped me a lot by being on top of everything, listening to what my needs were, and advising me on other matters related to the house. She has a wealth of knowledge related to the field, and an extremely hard worker.

Crannough Jones:

Rumi is more than a realtor to my family, she's become family. Rumi sold us (my mom, sister and I) our first home about 19 years ago and sold me my current home 3 years ago. Through the purchase of both homes, Rumi has been a trusted and knowledgeable advisor. The purchase of my new home span a period of three years. Her dedication was demonstrated during this time. Thank you Rumi and hope to see you soon!

Radu Marin:

Rumi helped us find the perfect house for our budget and location when we practically gave up hope. She had our best interest at heart all the way through the process, starting with inventory selection, going through price negotiations, inspections, repairs, loan application, and ending with a swift closing process despite many roadblocks. Rumi knows the market, has all the right connections and, above all, she’s very professional and pleasant to work with, always in touch and on top of things. We keep in touch periodically and we still seek her advice when it comes to home improvement, repairs, whatever is in style and sought by home buyers, to keep our home marketable. We recommended Rumi to our friends and they keep thanking us for that.

Alla Kanareykina:

We’ve known Rumi since 2001, when we first thought of moving to Washington DC area. She was always willing to help and to give good advice, and we became good friends. Only due to her extraordinary energy and support we bought a wonderful town house in Gaithersburg, though there were 5 applicants besides us… Two years ago we decided to build a new house, and again Rumi was of great help – introducing us to the building company and helping with documentation, house model selection, and interior design choices. She was taking care of so many problems that are inevitable at the time of construction… and now we live in a beautiful house full of sunlight. Dear Rumi, thank you!

Jelena Gvozdenovic-Jeremic:

Rumi is very experienced, knowledgeable and hardworking person. Rumi spent countless hours with us looking for the right house. She used to say: “We will keep looking until we found the right one…”. She was very patient with us and at the end she helped us even recognized the right property for us.
Local knowledge was particularly critical in our case, since we were looking in the area with a very specific market micro-economy. Since she lives and works locally she had her f...inger on the pulse of the market and she answered all important questions.
She was offering a full service package which was especially useful for us, as a first time home buyers .She helped us with a loan process which becomes more and more complex and demanding nowadays. Also, she had excellent company which did our house inspection, and at the end she helped us finding a contractor for our house renovation.
For us, she went far and beyond our expectations and we are very grateful to have such experienced and honest agent. We truly recommend her service to anyone we know looking for a house in MD/DC/VA area. Thank you Rumi!

David Yacubovich:

Just wanted to let everyone know how lucky we are that we met Rumi. Rumi helped us with purchasing our current house. The whole process of working with Rumi was a pleasure. Rumi is very knowledgeable in the field, she always was able to answer any question that we had, and we had a lot as a first time buyers, she was very helpful in any possible way. Very caring and warm person, always able to provide her very professional opinion and address any concerns. At the beginning of the process we were not sure about what area we should look for our future house, but Rumi was able to explain to us all the pros and cons of every house we were looking into, and finally to find the house that will fit all our needs. When you work with Rumi you can be sure that you will get the best possible service and the final deal will be the best possible. Thank you Rumi.

Dmitriy Fotiyev:

- My parents bought their first house with Rumi in 2001. Since then, she has been and still is our family's real estate agent, consultant, and a friend.
- In 2011, Rumi helped facilitate my purchase of a three-story condominium in Georgetown in an all-cash deal. Her market expertise was particularly helpful in devising the bidding and negotiation strategy.
- In 2014, Rumi once again engaged with my family and helped my parents acquire a lot in Potomac and build a new home on it.

These were three very different purchases spanning over 14 years, but what makes them similar is Rumi’s professionalism and commitment to her customers. Rumi is not your regular real estate agent; her services go well beyond what other agents do for their customers. My parents have been building their new house for almost 2 years and Rumi was there with them through all the ups and downs: helping with valuable advice, consulting, negotiating with the builder and the banks, and doing everything possible to insure that my parents' new residence turned out exactly the way they dreamed it.

We highly recommend Rumi to others and are very grateful for everything she has done for our family!

Vessela Mavrodieva:

I had a great experience working with Rumi in 2011 to buy my first home in MD. As a first time homebuyer I needed education, support and guidance. Rumi provided all this. One thing I particularly liked about Rumi is that she showed me as many different types of homes (single family, townhouse, condos) as needed to find the right type and home for me. She was also very good in guiding me during the loan application process. I really enjoy my home that Rumi helped me buy. Thank you, Rumi!

George Acsente:

I know Rumi for 13 years now since my wife and I bought our first house. She helped us understand the process and her advice is providing now an income for my family, in times when we needed most. I highly recommend her expertise.

Dina Rossi:

Rumiana came highly recommended from my friends so I decided to work with her in the purchase of my very first house. We found one pretty quickly, but after the inspection we realized some things were not quite as they should be so she advised me not to go forward with the purchase. Instead she advised towards looking again until we find the right one - which we did shortly after. In the process, she not only prepared all the paperwork, but also taught me the steps to follow and what to look for, since I was a newbie and didn't know the right questions to ask or the right things to look for. I felt that she took the time to help me not only as a client, but as a friend who had my best interests in mind. Knowledge, professionalism, patience, friendliness - those are only a few of the qualities for which I have been recommending her to others and will continue to do so!

Mariana Vararean:

Working with Rumi was a pleasure, enthusiastic, professional and great knowledge where few of the characteristics that we loved about her. She helped us sell our house and supported us in a process that was not easy, we appreciate her patience with us looking for a new home and her understanding when our situation took us in a different way, moved out of state. We love to tell about our experience to our friends and some of them have already being working with Rumi.
We know that if we move back in the DC area we have a great Realtor to work with!

Marjan Saber:

My husband and I met Rumi when we were buying our first home. She made that experience a happy and stress free one. Rumi is a great listener. She paid attention to us and our needs and used her knowledge to find us the best match. We loved working with her and ever since she has been our only real estate agent. She is always available and is very friendly. That makes it very easy to work with her.
