VR SAM®’s CLIENTS Testimonials

By Joe and Deb - VR SAM on 3/10/2014


”…thank you for recommending Joe Gladden's VR SAM® real estate outfit. Theytreated us like royalty and provided absolutely first class service in our home search. It was gratifying to find these nice people...The VR SAM®people simply rolled up their sleeves and went to work with us. We were not easy customers to accommodate. The team at VR SAM® took us all over Northern Virginia and were willing to stay with us for as long as it was going to take. The entire team at VR SAM® was with us right through to closing, chasing down the myriad details that always crop up in a home purchase. Throughout it all, they were helpful, accommodating, and professional. We could not have possibly asked for a better experience. I will be recommending them to my friends who are contemplating buying or selling in the D.C. area.” Bob and Karen Hendrickson Sep ‘05


"Best realtor team I've ever seen! The rebates offered by VR SAM® are unsurpassed in the industry. They truly have the best interests of the military service member in mind." Capt Toby Loper, Jan 05

"The VR SAM® Team went to extraordinary lengths to get us into the right house in record time. This was by far the best home buying experience in our military career." Maj Tim & Susan McKenzie, Apr 05

"Best realtors in the business.....we plan to refer all our friends who are moving to VR SAM®." The VIP service was phenomenal....we'll never use another realtor but VR SAM®. Maj Pat and Shannon Burke, Jun 05


"From our first contact by email, to the day of closing, you were always ready to answer all my questions and concerns. Your military client credit at closing allowed me to buy a new washer and dryer and other household items. The house is beautiful and I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision. Without your help and advice, I don’t think I would be in the position of living in such a great investment home. Thanks again to you and your team for making my transition from Sea duty to Shore duty so smooth." LTJG Phillip Kim, Apr 05

You both have been so kind to us! First you find us a great house and neighborhood close to a terrific school and good access to transportation into DC. Then you look after our “new digs” in our absence and assist with necessary improvements. Your gestures of friendship were topped off with a fun cookout at your lovely home. Thanks again for your help and friendship." Dolly and Larry, Sep 04






“We could not be happier- we have been so well taken care. From the the day we thought about buying a house, during the “looking and thinking” days, the “offer and negotiation’ stress, the thrill of settlement and even through the “how are we going to move it all” stage, we have been pampered. We purchased some acreage and had many questions. VR SAM® went to great lengths to make sure that all questions were researched and answered.


The VR SAM Team (and it is a true “TEAM”) has every aspect of a perfect home purchase covered. We could not have asked for anything else.


Without any hesitation, we have already recommended them to our friends. “

Dear Joe, Deb, Laura, and Jim,


We want to thank you for your outstanding service and support. The northern Virginia prices can add a dimension of terror to the mix. With prices in a range we had never dreamed of, we needed to get it right the first time. The VRSAM® Team helped from the first phone call. Knowing the realtors are familiar with military challenges and have lived them makes all the difference. You helped us find a super house in a great neighborhood. Our move was painless for only one reason…because the team at VRSAM® made it that way.


You made us feel like VIPs and I can say without question that our move from New Orleans to Virginia was the smoothest move we’ve had in our 20+ Navy career and this was lucky number 13!


I keep gushing and I haven’t even mentioned your military client credit yet. It is a welcome monetary break. We’ve never found anyone that offers such generous terms.


Thanks again and keep up the great work.

Lynda and I cannot thank you enough for the unbelievable time and care you provided our family during our military transition from Georgia up to Northern Virginia. We have purchased several homes during our military career, and your team is by far the most knowledgeable and most professional that we have ever experienced. Thank you, we will certainly refer our military friends to VR SAM®.

Thank you again for all that you have done for us and especially the support you've given us during this time.
