Bija helped us buy our first home in a very unusual manner, as we put an offer sight unseen... in a highly competitive situation. She was very knowledgeable about the area, and answered all the questions we had as first time buyers. she also had a great team along and we had great experience with our mortgage broker and our lawyer, all recommended by Bija.

Our home buying experience with Bija as our Agent has been a fantastic experience and something that we couldn’t have dreamed up. She is so knowledgeable about all of the aspects of the Home Buying Process and communicated this to us in non-technical terms that we could easily understand and is a master of the buying process. Her Customer Service has been unmatched from anything we have experienced before, which is highlighted by her lightening fast responses via phone, email, and in person meetings. Her patience and understanding with our extremely active 2 ½ year old was very impressive and made working with her that much easier. By spending the time to get to know us and what we were looking for she gave us advance notice on the home we ended up purchasing by bringing the pending listing to our attention and setting up a Private viewing before the Open House. Then, she used several different elements to craft an offer that was superior in a multiple bid situation in Arlington. Even prior to the acceptance of the offer, she had engaged an Attorney and contacted our Mortgage Consultant to get things in motion if the offer was accepted. Finally, she presented our offer in person to the Seller and Seller’s Agent. We could go on and on as to all of the other little things she did to make our Dream Home a reality, but simple words can’t express our satisfaction with Bija. Though, we have only been working with her for 2+ weeks, it feels as though we have known her for years. Hopefully you will make the wisest choice and have her as your Buying Agent too as she is the Best!!

We were extremely satisfied with Bija's performance as our buyer's agent on a 2M property in Lexington. Bija understood very quickly what we were looking for based on our reactions to the first properties we visited. Coming from abroad, she was of excellent advice to recommend the best possible town of residence for us. Her work with us went way beyond the mission of a buyer's agent, including making sure that we had all we needed long after the deal was closed. Bija is extremely professional and efficient, very capable and in control. She adapted her schedule to be 100% available for us while we were in town. She is amazingly open minded and loves to meet new people of different origins. She is cultivated and fun and really a great person to work with. She places her client's interest first and is more interested in the people themselves than the financial transaction. We cannot recommend her more strongly.
We loved working with Bija! She made what could've been a very stressful process of first time home buying into a smooth and pleasant experience. One thing that makes her stand out is her superior level of client service. She was there anticipating our every need, provided valuable advice about the process, and went above and beyond through everey transaction so there were little to no worries on our end. She was also great at negotiating the right price for us. Her upbeat personality and enthusiasm were contagious. We would highly recommend her not only for her professionalism, but also because she is an all around terrific person to know.

If you want to sell your house fast, with very little stress, hire Bija. Having interacted with other realtors in the Belmont/Arlington area, I can honestly say that Bija is the best. She is straightforward, professional, courteous, and extremely hard-working. She once came over at midnight to let me in because I had left my key at work. And even at midnight, she was dressed to the nines, and cheery as can be.
And if that isn't enough - remember this number - 3.
3 days from listing to offer and acceptance - on a little Cape in Arlington. Bija is a blessing. Seriously, hire her.
It's something close to a miracle that I found a home that fit all my requirements. And I really couldn't have done it without Bija. She is truly a genius when it comes to making things happen, and in the way they should! She worked with me every step of the way, which was important being a first time home buyer. And what's more she makes it fun, even the stressful times of bidding and closing! Can't thank you enough, Bija!! xoxoxo

We were both first-time homebuyers and had no idea where to begin, so we googled First-Time Home Buyers Seminars in Arlington and found Bija's class. We liked what we saw online and decided to come to the class, which ended up being a really good idea. The class introduced us to Bija and the mortgage lender who we used for the whole process. Bija was very professional and helpful in all aspects (from driving radon gas test containers to a lab in New Hampshire to recommending contractors, inspectors, etc.). She guided us from beginning to end and was a friend to us throughout the whole process, and still remains in contact afterwards. We would highly recommend Bija and this seminar to anyone.
Bija was a pleasure to work with. She has very good instincts for the various aspects of the business, and as a FTHB I appreciated the insight she was able to offer on both the technical and financial sides of house hunting. She pays attention to your interests and concerns, and doesn't waste your time showing you properties that don't align with your criteria. Bija definitely helped make the whole process less stressful than it might have been otherwise.
