Customer Ratings

Sunita Lal has been rated by 21 customers


“Sunita Lal is an extraordinary Real Estate Consultant! As clients, we were blessed and/or lucky to have been referred to her by a relocation company because we were moving to northern VA from the West Coast. My wife and I searched more than 200 homes using Sunita's website portal for clients, and Sunita coordinated our visits to 18-20 homes that we selected as favorites. On our first visit, we bid on a home and Sunita helped us bid what the home was really worth based on the values of other homes in the neighborhoods, and without this expertise, we could have paid many tens of thousands too much for that home - we didn't get that home. On our second trip to VA, we found a "beach" home (without a beach, LOL) and eventually purchased that home that is everything we ever wanted in a home (we didn’t want a pool this time, smile)! Sunita's organization, communication, patience, expertise in neighborhoods, expertise in home quality and value , and her advocacy for us as home buyers is world-class. And, Sunita provides premium client service from the beginning of the home search process to the home closing (and afterwards I think). Sunita Lal is the best! ”
Darrell & Francine Lane, Northern VA (Buyer)
“Sunita did an outstanding job navigating several issues during the process. She maintained her focus on the objective of getting the contract/ buyers to closing. She maintained her composure and helped guide us through many emotional cycles. She remained very reliable and extremely responsive throughout the entire process. Somehow she always made us feel like we were her only clients, even though we knew that wasn’t the case. We appreciate her efforts very much!!! Thanks Sunita!”

“We have worked with Ms. Sunita Lal multiple times before and each time she has provided an outstanding level of service. We knew that we could count on Ms. Lal again to help us find our newest home and to make sure our best interests were taken into consideration. Ms. Lal demonstrated excellent negotiation skills and was able to help us obtain a much more favorable sale price as well as additional credits from the seller to cover home inspection items. Ms. Lal always went out of her way to ensure we were viewing the best homes within our budget. We are extremely happy with Ms. Lal's level of professionalism. We will definitely be going back to Ms. Lal again for any future real estate needs!”

“Realtor was selected as a referral through a USAA mover’s advantage program. I was impressed with the caliber of her expertise: knowledge of the surrounding area. In addition, her preparedness for our first meeting was impressive. She took the time out to create a bound perspectus of homes I was interested. Sunita has excellent knowledge of the surrounding area and ensured that my home search/process was smooth throughout. I appreciate her attentiveness and her ability to keep me in track to complete tasks to align to an on time closing. Sunita put in extra hours to ensure this deal went through smoothly. There were times that I had family emergencies to deal with and could not respond to her until after business hours. She was extremely responsive and got answers often within 30 minutes of receipt. Thanks Sunita for providing excellent service. ”

She was very prompt with her comminations, and we always knew we were getting a well informed and correct answer.”

She was extremely helpful throughout both the buying process of our new home and the selling of our old home. She is consistent, honest and communicates very well. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! ”
Kavita Khanna, Gainesville, Va (Seller)
“We worked with Sunita Lal to buy this house in 2012, and were very impressed with her professionalism, expertise and dedication. We naturally wanted to work with her again to sell the house and buy our new home. From the start, we were blown away by Sunita's sales campaign. There were so many added benefits to selling with her and Century21. We were particularly impressed with the 3D tour and beautiful print brochures. The house was staged beautifully, which really made it stand out from other houses on the market. She was also knowledgeable about the selling market and sold our house for tens of thousands more than we would have expected. We've now worked with Sunita multiple times and are beyond pleased with her performance. She is in constant contact, very helpful, and has developed a great relationship with our family. She is professional and able to handle any kind of complication in the closing process, and entirely understanding and approachable. We trust her opinion and expertise fully and she has never steered us wrong! Her team was excellent as well. Both the stager, Lilyan, and the photographer who took staging pictures and filmed the 3D tour made our property shine. We are incredibly satisfied with our house sale. It sold so much faster than we were anticipating, and at a higher price than we expected. We are very happy customers and have already referred Sunita to our friends and family, and will continue to do so in the future.”
Yvonne and Matt Takane, Sterling, VA (Seller)

Sunita is an extremely organized, detail-oriented agent - exactly what you want when closing on a home! She is very accessible, we never had any issues reaching her when we needed, and she often went out of her way to assist us. Not only that, she is friendly, polite, and had a great understanding of our needs in a home. We would recommend Sunita to anyone - especially first-time home buyers since she excels at managing expectations and keeping her buyers on schedule. ”
