My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you. See what my clients have said about my real estate services...
I wanted to share my story of how I found my dream home. I was actually coming up on the end of a lease and was looking for another place to rent. I made a few inquiries on some houses and got a phone call from Samir. We chit chatted a bit about what I was looking for and then he asked me why I was renting. I told him my story about how I had a foreclosure and how I didn’t think I could buy. We continued to talk and he connected me to Jill Donovan at imortgage and I’m telling you, from that minute it was just a snowball of amazing things. I was prequalified quickly and then Samir & I met for lunch with his wife Debbie at my favorite restaurant. He took the time to really breakdown what I was looking for and what was important to me. That day we looked at 3 houses. They were all perfect in some way, but the 3rd house, was MY house!! We all knew it the minute we walked in the door. I am now living in that home and couldn’t have done it without the help of an amazing realtor that wanted me to own this home as badly as I did. I would recommend him to my closest family and friends because he felt totally genuine throughout the entire process. Your dream home is out there and Samir can help you find it!!

My husband and I recently listed our house with Realty Ambassadors. The service we received from Samir Rafeedie was excellent. Thru out the entire process of selling our house and buying another, we were always his top priority. Samir took the time to listen and understand exactly what we needed and wanted. Samir is a true professional.
Thank you Samir ( real estate superstar!)
Very happy in our new house

I want to say that it was a pleasure working with Samir and your company Realty Ambassadors. When I was working closely with you to close a deal on this home it took great patience, which you and your company displayed fully and were a great help. Your team was very friendly and quick with responses and worked diligently to get me and my wife the house of our dreams. When we first came to you with an offer on this house the company I had chosen to represent me as buyer on this house was not able to get it done in a timely fashion or in the way things were supposed to happen. After I had elected to go with the company of your recommendation this process was so simple and smooth. We closed on our house in less than a week to allow me and my wife to spend out first Christmas as a married couple in our new house we worked so hard to get. I would recommend working with Samir and Realty Ambassadors to anyone I know because of how fast and effective this company is and they have great customer service.
Thank you again for all of your help.
To Whom It May Concern:
In the summer of 1995 I took a leap of faith deciding to move to Phoenix, AZ, with no job and without knowing anyone in the state. That dream and all events that followed have been God led.
I first met Samir Rafeedie in 7/95 when I flew into town to purchase a home. I picked his photo out of a brochure, called his office on a Sunday, and got an answer! We began the search with a few challenges. I had to purchase within 5 days, I only had $8,000.00 to spend and the home must have an assumable loan. On the very last day in Phoenix, with no home found, Samir decided to check the MLS one more time. A new listing appeared! We sped to the house, took a 5 minutes tour, wrote the contract just in time for me to catch my plane. I didn't find out my offer was accepted until after I had returned home. I lived in that home for 3 1/2 years.
Samir introduced me to my church. As I arrived that first Sunday, Samir was parked 3 spaces from me in this huge lot. I was feeling apprehensive. After just attending a service, he went to my service with me. I have always appreciated that gesture so much. I have been attending that same church for 18 years now.
In 1999 I phoned Samir again to start looking for a new home. Samir found a buyer for my home but they needed immediate possession. We found the perfect vacant home for me. The owners had purchased another home, and were about to lose it. We closed both homes quickly. I lived in that home for 10 years.
This year Samir and I met our greatest challenge. I contracted to purchase a short sale home. We contracted on May 1st. We closed on November 29th. There were so many times I wanted to pull out. For awhile I called Samir weekly, but most of the time there was nothing new to report. Finally I said I'm going to trust God for this home. If I'm supposed to have it, I will. I stopped calling Samir. He called me if something was needed. He took care of everything. I know for sure he had to jump through so many hoops with the two lenders involved in the sale. He never showed any signs of discouragement. He was always positive and I appreciated that so much.
Samir has also sold homes to my mother, brother and son. They too have been very pleased.
Samir has the most integrity of anyone I know. He makes sure things are done honestly and benefically to all parties involved. I have never doubted that he was looking out for my interest in every situation. Samir and Debbie have become good friends over the years. When they say "A company built on Integrity" that is a truth.
My family and I would like to thank Samir for everything that he did to sell our house in Arizona. My job relocated me to Rhode Island, and it was a very stressful time for my family and I. The worst part was the value of our house was half what we paid for it. We also had 2 mortgages and a home improvement loan on top of it. We contacted Samir in October of 2011 and he was able to successfully close the short sale. That is no short feat with a standard short sale. However, he was able to complete it with 2 mortgages and a home improvement loan. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and went far beyond what we could have expected from a realtor. Our relationship began on a professional level and quickly grew into much more. We consider Samir and Debbie family now. We would recommend Realty Ambassadors to anyone. They made our very stressful situation easy. We were able to concentrate on our 2,700 mile relocation while he dealt with the Arizona home.
I would highly recommend that anyone that is looking to buy or rent a home to use the services of Realty Ambassador's Samir and Debbie Rafeedie. Debbie spent a good portion of her time to show my wife and I many homes for several hours for two days. Samir and Debbie seem to be very nice people and were very helpful in helping us find a home.

When we first listed our house with Samir Rafeedie, we had 30 days to sell it and wasn't really confident that it could be done in that length of time. Of course, it would sell sooner or later, but in 30 days flat?
Samir did everything that had to be done to sell our house. He has a strong sense of what is necessary and important to make a sale possible. He didn't waste our time or his with open houses. He gave us a very realistic estimate of how to price our house, to move it the fastest and to get the money we need out of it. He put in our listing with the MLS and advertised it in real estate magazines.
He provided services for us, over and above what could commonly be expected of real estate agent. He recommended a plumber, and a carpet repairman. He helped us write a budget to decide how much house we could afford to buy, after selling ours.
He was there at the most important times. When it came right down to 2 days remaining on our contingency, we had two offers to decide between. Samir Rafeedie was there for us. He missed his dinner and stayed up almost to midnight writing the contract with us. He explained our options clearly and let us decide.
Over the month that we have worked with Samir Rafeedie, we developed trust and confidence in him. I can recommend him to anyone. He gets the job done. He does what it takes to make it happen. I want him to be a part of our financial future. He knows the value of patience and timing, in making good things happen for us.
