Exceedingly knowledgeable about the ever dynamic Arlington real estate market. Having grown up in Northern Virginia, I wanted an agent who had first hand knowledge and experience with the area' s market growth and change over the years....and potential growth and change to come. Tommy and Julia were exactly those people. They listened to my likes and dislikes, provided suggestions and opinions when appropriate, and were completely professional. Have repeatedly recommended them to friends, and hope to use their services when its time to look for another home.
Julia and Tommy Avent were fantastic with us when we were buying our first home. They fit around our busy schedule and were able to quickly grasp what we liked and didn't like. Julia has a good sense of how well a property is valued and looked out for our investment.

Whether it is buying or selling a property, they each give immense attention to what is important to you and the myriad of details that always surround any transaction. You can depend on honesty and excellence every step of the way. Do yourself a favor and include them in your efforts the next time you have a chance.
Being first time homebuyers/homeowners, we had a lot of questions. Julia was always able to answer our questions without hesitation. We really felt she was working for us and had our best interests in mind.
We have worked with both Julia and Tommy. They have helped us buy or sell a home 3 times so far! They are patient, knowledgeable, and work hard to get a price that is fair. We highly recommend these guys!
Julia gave us the sense that we were not in this alone. She is competent, astute, and a sincere professional.
Julia was an invaluable asset in my first home purchase. She's an expert on the Northern Virginia market and was able to offer valuable insight into specific builders and building reputations. Julia walked me through the process, was objective, and helped pain the picture for tradeoffs, concerns, and potential renovations I wouldn't have known to think about. She is passionate about her work, and fairly but firmly represents her clients to the best possible outcome. I actively recommend Julia for anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent in the area.
I have entrusted Julia with both buying and selling my home in Northern Virginia and recommend her for any and all real estate business. She expertly led us through a competitive buying process to get us the house we wanted and that was the perfect fit for us. Ten years later, when it was time to sell, I immediately called Julia since I would have trusted this to no one else.
This is the second house we sold with Julia's assistance. We moved outside of VA (~2000 miles away) and looked for an agent who would assist us in the preparing the house, marketing and advertising, providing guidance and consul and supporting us through the sale, closing and post-sale. She wasvery easy to work with through the entire process. We highly recommend her and would, if the opportunity arises, work with her in the future.”“Julia is the single most responsive agent I have ever used. She not only knows her market, she is one of the most honorable and honest people I have come across in the business. I have purchased 3 homes and sold 3 homes with Tommy and Julia and cannot recommend them more highly.
My wife and I have worked with Tommy and Julia Avent on all of our real estate transactions in Arlington, Virginia(a purchase and sale of a townhouse in Courthouse, and the purchase of a single family home near Donaldson Run). We highly recommend them for your condo, townhouse of single-family home purchase or sale. Tommy and Julia are both extremely knowledgeable of all of the neighborhoods in Northern Virginia, and they have educated us on the ins-and-outs of the local market. Tommy and Julia have been working in Northern Virginia for several years and have built up a wide-ranging network of lenders, home inspectors, professional stagers, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, architects, painters, handymen and many others - their network can become your network. As an added bonus, Tommy and Julia work as a team, which allows them greater flexibility to always be available to show properties or just discuss new ideas. Most importantly, they are good people who I can always trust to do the right thing and provide sound advice, which, in today's world, is priceless.
