Zahra helped us buy the perfect home for us. We stumbled upon the perfect place before having a realtor. The listing agent recommended Zahra. Zahra worked with us over the weekend to find a lender and put in an offer in record time. She is kind, transparent, and supportive of her clients needs and wishes. She was a great coach throughout the home-buying process.


We recently sold our Seattle home and were very happy with Zahra’s level of service! She worked extremely hard to position our sale towards the most competitive prices in this housing market. Zahra guided us through the step-by-step process of selling our house, and her daily follow-ups and check-ins helped us through what could have otherwise been an overwhelming process. We noticed her attention to detail, as well as her ability to provide clarity on some of the housing market lingo we didn’t quite understand at first. She managed our expectations very well by being very precise in helping us set our listing price, and she was professional, attentive, and supportive throughout this process and we would recommend her to anyone!


Zahra has provided us much needed support in buying our first home in a very competitive market.
