About Lavina Samtani
I have been in Real Estate since 2001. I have consistently been a top producing agent. I have been awarded the 100% Club for 10 consecutive years, Platinum Club in 2005 and Hall of Fame in RE/MAX. I specialize in standard sales, foreclosures, first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers & sellers and short sales in Montgomery County, Frederick County, Washington, D.C. & surrounding regions. My business is based primarily on personal referrals and past clients. Real Estate is not my JOB, it is my PASSION!
I am of Indian origin, born and raised in Indonesia. I moved to the USA in 1990 and have lived in Silver Spring, Germantown and now the Frederick, Maryland area. My youth was filled with extra-curricular activities and organizations centered around school, church and athletics. Current hobbies of mine include spending time with my family, traveling and meeting new people. I am a member of the Frederick Community Fellowship in Frederick. I have two boys ages 28 and 26. They graduated from the University of Virginia and the University of Maryland. My older son is currently working on his Masters degree and my younger son is at George Washington University finishing his medical school. My husband works for Fitzgerald Auto Mall at White Flint.
I am not afraid of hard work. I work with integrity and I always try to put my clients' needs first. I service the needs of buyers and sellers equally. Having a teaching background, I tend to teach my clients first and foremost so that the process of home buying or selling do not overwhelm them.
Sellers like to have their home sold quickly and get the highest price. As a Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) I can teach and show them strategies on how to achieve this. I am able to help guide the sellers to get their home prepared through staging, with as little out-of-pocket cost as possible, to enhance the showing of their home. I give my sellers weekly updates and monthly CMAs with changes in the market.
I am very passionate about teaching first-time homebuyers in Maryland and DC the step-by-step process of home buying. Home purchase is the biggest investment of a person's life. The process can really overwhelm a first-time or any buyer. I would like to hold their hands and be the go to person they can count on.
I also believe that foreclosures and short sales can be avoided. We just need to take the time to teach our clients to handle their finances better so they don not have to go through the ordeal of short sales and foreclosures.
