"Samia is a passionate, professional, and beyond-capable real estate broker. She has helped me through many types of real estate related projects, from renting, buying, to sub-leasing. She is observant to your preferences and makes sure she helps you find what you are looking for. She is very resourceful and willing to share her connections with you-whether it is someone who can help deep-clean, someone who can help with moving, and more. Samia is there through all of the processes and makes sure you get settled in just right. She is also a star-negotiator. Don't be afraid to ask for something you are wishing for, because Samia might just have the idea to help you negotiate for it! She is amazing! I would recommend her to my friends who would need any of her services."    Tiffany C - Renter, Buyer & Investor

"Samia made my first ever home buying experience most pleasurable. We worked as a team with the others involved in the process, like the seller, lender, and lawyer. Samia made sure she was there every step of the way. Samia promptly followed up with the seller's agent and ensured we were on track with the closing. Her excellent people skills and sensitivity make her an expert troubleshooter and calming presence. Samia was more of a friend than a broker, and that took away much of the stress associated with home buying. I highly recommend Samia!"    Sridevi S - Buyer

" I would recommend Samia Akodu to everyone I know! She took the time to really understand what I was looking for and worked with my challenging timeline. She helped me find a place that is right for me, that works with my budget, and that feels like home-- not just a solution for right now, but for the long term. But what really makes Samia exceptional is her ability to find solutions. She looks beyond the obvious, and works with all of the parties involved with the greatest respect and creativity to negotiate roadblocks and keep to the timeline. I felt so prepared for each step in the co-op purchase process, and Samia was fully engaged throughout: ensuring that I had a temporary place to stay while the deal was finalized, speeding up my board interview to stick to my timeline, and staying on top of all of the communication and details back and forth so that the whole team was on the same page. Samia is really invested in her clients, and I couldn't be happier with the result. With the unpredictable housing market now and complexities of real estate in general, it was such a joy and relief to work with her. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking in NY."    Jess N - Buyer

"First and foremost, Samia has been the most amazing person we have ever worked with! We put a deposit down for a new construction condo on 4/2019 and we closed on the apartment 12/2019. During the time that we waited to close on the apartment, Samia checked in on us and on the developers every single day! She took care of us like family and never missed one call or left one question unanswered. Her customer service goes beyond anything we have ever experienced and we will continue to work with her in the future. Thank you so much Samia!!!"     Thays B  -  Buyer

"I was so lucky to have found Samia, she made the impossible become a reality for me! I have worked with other agents and she was by far, the most professional, kind, and calm despite many barriers to secure our apartment. She was able to second guess my needs immediately and made things seem simple. I *KNOW* that I could not have found my apartment without Samia and all of her connections. I would highly recommend her to anyone!"  David H - Renter
