Client in Fairfax (relocation from another state): 
Like many people who live in Fairfax County, we moved here from somewhere else.  Looking for and finding housing is one of the biggest challenges outside of figuring out your commute routes.  We really appreciated Alka’s calm reassurance andexpert advice throughout the entire process of finding a home on a tight timeline.

Alka is by far the best real estate agent I have ever known.  She has incredible attention to detail, excellent follow-through and is extremely personable.  Whenever we would choose a house or two to look at, she would suggest two more.  She was not just concerned about service, but took time to educate us on the selection as well as fine-tune our needs.  

She provided us with outstanding advice on what to look for.  Alka was professional, very conscientious and was a clear communicator.  At the end of our phone conversations she would always recap what we had agreed upon, what our next actions would be and made sure we left the conversation on the same page.

She promptly returned phone calls and texts and had a depth of knowledge about negotiation and contract details that proved to be invaluable and accurate.  When she ran into details that she was unfamiliar with (the property had a well) she thoroughly researched, checked and double checked issues of water quality and testing to help guide us.

Through it all Alka was a Realtor who was clearly a partner and a friend. It is without hesitation we would seek her out with any future real estate needs.

Now this is a compliment...
On my listing, when the buyer represented by another agent, shares this...

Alka is great to work with. I was buying my first home and Alka was the selling realtor and it is very amazing how kind and caring attitude she has towards the buyers and was very diligent in every step of the process taking care of everything we asked and needed. 
She is very professional, detailed and very friendly. She went above and beyond what we asked and needed when we buy our first property while she is the selling realtor. 
After we bought the home, she even follows up and offered any help. She knows the area very well, guided and informed us what we can benefit from the area. 

I greatly recommend her for anyone looking for professional realtor. She is the best!

Client in Alexandria: 
My experience working with Alka was outstanding. It was my first home-buying experience and it took me a while to decide what I wanted to buy. Alka was very patient, and understanding and when I finally found the right property for me, she guided me through making the offer, negotiation and all the  subsequent documentation. 

I found her to be very thorough and clear in her communications, open, forthright, honest, but above all, I had no doubt she had my interests at heart. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

Client in Fairfax: 
Alka is really kind and professional. I found my house the first time checking around with her. She provided me with the most helpful and sincere suggestions.

I am really appreciating her negotiating  skill, which got me the house within my budget and in the neighborhood I desired. She educates as she explains!

Relocation Client to Reston:
Alka was great from the start. She made our experience great. In the beginning she showed us several places as this was a rush to move for us. We were not happy with some of the places and she took her time to show us some places twice to make sure we were fine with it. 

We asked for her opinion as we started to limit our choices and she had good insights as to what she thought would be good for us. She was prompt with her findings as well as getting paperwork sorted out for us. 

Her attitude was calm and peaceful. I would go back to Miss Alka if needed to find a place.

Client in Fairfax City: 
t was truly a pleasure to work with Alka.   She is 100% customer focused and really cares about finding people the right home.  She takes the time to find out what you are looking for and works really hard to make it happen. 

Alka was very patient with us as we looked at home after home. She was always honest with us and we really valued her opinion and knowledge of the market. I can’t imagine a better realtor to work with.  I will not hesitate to recommend Alka to everyone I know and I will certainly be contacting her again in the future when we look for another home. I give Alka an A+++ rating.

Client in Fairfax City:
We are glad that we have found the opportunity to talk about our wonderful experience working with Alka Kumar. We met Alka at a time when we were in a great need of assistance with our home search. Prior we had worked with several other agents, whom we had found to be unavailable, not genuine and too pushy to work with.

Alka was always detail oriented, honest, and available for us. From our first meeting we had with her till the last one, when we signed the contract and moved to our place, her efforts and professionalism exceeded our expectations. 

Throughout the entire process, Alka always had our best interest at heart and very diligent at her work. She found us the right home in the exact neighborhood we wanted.

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Alka Kumar as a real estate agent to anyone searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. She is the best in the business in our opinion! Next time we need to move, she will be our only choice. If you like to discuss our experience in more detail please feel free to contact us by email at David.khodad@gmail.com

Client in Fairfax City & Aldie: 
long time ago, my wife gave me a plaque with an inscription: ‘You can’t improve perfection’.  Well, I can say almost the same for Alka- she is almost perfect. 

We have had a pleasure of buying or renting a few homes in our lifetime of 47+ years in the United States, each time going through one or more realtors. Alka tops them all. She is highly intelligent, extremely knowledgeable in the area of real estate, highly resourceful, kind and an ultimate honest professional realtor. 

It was a great pleasure in having Alka finding us an excellent place to retire in a new community in Aldie, Virginia. She took care of the minutest details of the whole process beginning from finding the right place, working with the builder sales person, financing, details of selecting options, and finally even taking care of the rental details of the property that we vacated. 

I can go on, but will sum up in two words: Alka is AN OUTSTANDING REALTOR.

Client in Reston: 
"Alka is an ultimate seasoned full time real estate professional who puts the needs and wants of her clients first! It has been a pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her to all potential buyers and sellers. I find Alka is an agent who tells it like it is without making open ended promises!

I was interested in purchasing several investment properties like town houses and condos but I was not able to  devote a lot of time to the search. I asked Alka to just send me listings of the areas I was interested in. She followed my lead and did not "hound" me.  She reached out once in a while. 
She carefully screened many properties before showing me the finalists and I have purchased three properties using her services over the last year. 

She was accessible, positive, and knowledgeable throughout the process. She has strong business sense and negotiation skills. 

Alka is the model of real estate professionalism, she’s a likeable and friendly person, she’s easy to work with, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again in the future".  
-R. Mehrotra, Esq.  

Client in Fairfax City: 
"Buying or selling in the Northern Virginia area can be very stressful. Having experienced it multiple times I can attest to the importance of a quality realtor who is willing to be patient and understand what you are looking for in a home. 

From day one Alka was in constant communication with me about what was available, what was in our price range, and what was going to be worth pursuing. When we came across the house I really liked I had lots of initial questions. 

Even though Alka did not have the immediate answer to some, shortly after we spoke Alka had contacted the right people and obtained the answers to all my questions. Alka coordinated everything and kept everyone involved in the loop when it came to questions, required documentation, and closing. 

It was because of her the process of finding a rental home was smooth sailing. I cannot thank her enough for her kindness and honesty throughout the entire process and would recommend her service to anyone. If you are looking for a pleasant and stress free experience when it comes to buying, selling or renting a home I would most definitely choose Alka". 
-David Kimble 

Client in Alexandria City: 
"As a first-time home-buyer, a nervous one at that, I couldn’t be more satisfied with my choice of Alka as my agent. My desired price range offered limited choices in this rather affluent area but this did not deter Alka’s determination in matching me with a property that I could live comfortably in.  She went to great lengths to ensure that all of my concerns and questions were answered in a timely matter and she always put my interests first. 

I was able to close on my property in a matter of weeks! I would wholeheartedly recommend Alka to the buyers of all strides."
