"Working with Ruqia was a pleasure. She listens and makes extra steps to achieve the result. Our house was sold quickly and for the good price. I would recommend Ruqia as a professional to anyone who would ask.
Thank you for your business!

"Ruqia Naqi is a knowledgeable, dependable, honest, and experienced real estate agent. I would highly recommend her for all your real estate transactions. She sold both my homes very quick by offering her invaluable suggestions and advice on how to improve my home to meet updated market trends. She is very professional and went way above and beyond her call of duty as an agent. You will not be be disappointed by Ruqia and her expertise."

"Ruqia did a great job and always stayed on top of the game. Provided us with a lot of support and personal attention, moving along through the whole house search, selection, negotiation, inspection and purchase process."

"Despite having listed our home with another Realtor for less money (with no offers), we raised our price and hired Ruqia to represent our home. Not only did we get an offer higher than our previous listing, our home sold for the highest s/f price in our village and within a few days of listing it again. 'Perhaps' you can say some of that was luck, but considering Ruqia went out of her way to 'manage' certain things like finding a stager and knew the area and market better than any other Realtor, I would say that without Ruqia, we would still be waiting for an offer. BW also showed our home during the prior listing. When we took it off the market, it was funny how other Realtors and companies called to list our home. Why didn't they show it when it was listed before?? That is why we chose BW and Ruqia. They wanted to sell our home!"

""It has been a real joy to work with Ruqia who promises and over delivered! Ruqia has been attentive, responsive, and has made the process of buying a JOY and gave us great peace of mind knowing all we needed would be taken care of. It has been a great experience and we would recommend her to anyone buying or selling. All parties recommend also were professional in every way/attorney/home inspector/other associates in the office who helped while Ruqia was away. Baird & Warner exemplifies and embodies professionalism.""
