Our approach is simple: We treat our clients the way we would like to be treated. We won’t pressure you into signing a listing agreement before you are ready or push to you buy or sell too quickly. We also charge less than many other agents for listings and provide cash assistance to buyers, while maintaining top-notch expert assistance.
We strive to make the process as smooth and drama-free as possible. After all, buying and selling homes is already stressful enough! Accordingly, we focus on helping our clients take educated and deliberative steps, avoiding impulsive or uninformed decisions.
We take the time to listen to our clients, learn about their goals, and develop a plan to best serve their needs. While some agents brag about their “tough negotiating skills,” we believe a successful process also hinges on a winning strategy. Key elements of a winning strategy include determining the right market price for a home, smart marketing (for sellers), structuring the best and strongest offers possible, timing of offers and potential escalation causes, regular communication, and the ability to move quickly.
Communication and timing are key factors. That is why we remain available 24/7, willing and ready to write, review, and revise offers and counter offers as needed.
In addition, we work with a team of experts—lenders, inspectors, title companies, handymen and women, and more—whose work we know and can recommend without reservation. We do not accept fees for referring any of these individuals and won’t refer anyone that we should not use ourselves.
Angela Logomasini is a REALTOR with Samson Properties, licensed in Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. She believes that most people pay too much in commission fees. That’s why she offers listings at 4½ percent to sellers, and if you’re a buyer, she will give you ½ percent* of the cost of your new home up to $2,000 when you buy it. Even though her prices are very competitive, her customers get all the services and more that other agents offer at higher commissions and with no buyer assistance.
In addition to working as a REALTOR, Angela has resided in D.C. metro area for more than 25 years and is currently a resident in Alexandria VA. She is also a Ph.D. in politics, a writer (check out our blog), and a real estate investor. She is also a wine educator certified by the Wine and Spirits Education Trust.
