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 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.
Tommy Avent was fantastic with us when we were buying our first home. He fit around our busy schedule and was able to quickly grasp what we liked and didn't like. He 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, he gives 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 Tommy in your efforts the next time you have a chance.
I began working with Tommy just about two months ago. When I was beginning the process people warned me about how tough it can be emotionally and time wise. Be prepared they had said. My experience working with Tommy was the exact opposite. He was available for all my questions and somehow figured out very early on what I wanted. He guided me about places we should look at and some that he just knew wouldn't be right for me. He guided me about where compromise might be important and where he realized my compromising may lead to me being unhappy. When the time came to give an offer and start working with a lender he literally walked me through every step and made sure that the anxiety of a first time buy wouldn't become too much. Buying a house for me was a really big step and something I wasn't sure I could do on my own, but I guess what was great is that I didn't feel like I was doing it alone with Tommy. With all my requirements of schools, neighborhood, rooms and more he found me a house that ticked of all the boxes. Without a shadow of doubt for anyone looking for someone to help them find a house in DC/VA I'd recommend Tommy.
Tommy has helped us buy or sell a home 3 times so far! He is patient, knowledgeable, and works hard to get a price that is fair. I highly recommend Tommy!
Tommy really went beyond what I have come to expect from a realtor. Though I was able to travel to Arlington and meet with Tommy to view a few homes and get a feel for the market, my wife and I ended up purchasing our home from the West Coast. Tommy quickly understood what we were looking for, targeted properties that fit our needs and price range, and steered us away from properties he knew would not be right for us. He proactively contacted sellers agents, took video and pictures, arranged for contractors, and even offered to take delivery of our household goods if we could not make it in person. Bottom line, it was clear Tommy had our best interest in mind, and it was a comfort entering into a competitively real estate market remotely. We highly recommend Tommy!
Tommy was an invaluable asset in my first home purchase. He's an expert on the Northern Virginia market and was able to offer valuable insight into specific builders and building reputations. Tommy 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. He is passionate about her work, and fairly but firmly represents her clients to the best possible outcome. I actively recommend Tommy for anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent in the area.
Working with Tommy was very professional and completely stress free. He was always willing and able to accommodate us based on our schedule, and always brought a friendly positive attitude each and every day. Tommy was a breath of fresh air from prior agents we worked with. Very patient, easy going, responsive, and always looking out for our needs first. It was a pleasure working with him, and we won't hesitate to do it again.
My wife and I recently purchased our first home and Tommy was recommended to us by some friends who were also first-time homebuyers. Looking ahead to the purchasing process was an intimidating task, to say the least, but Tommy immediately calmed our nerves. From the first meeting he made it very clear that his sole purpose was to make the process as easy as possible on us. He walked us through what to expect and didn't try to push us to any purchase. He was patient, responsive when we had questions (and believe me, I had a lot), and he was always open to doing walkthroughs with us.When we finally were ready to make a purchase on a home we loved, Tommy carefully walked us through every step. It got to a point where we were communicating daily and he never made it seem like we were monopolizing his time. My wife and I are currently living in the home that he helped us purchase and sometimes we joke about getting "withdrawals" from not speaking to Tommy.Thank you, Tommy, for making our experience that much more enjoyable and easier than we anticipated.
My wife and I have worked with Tommy 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 him for your condo, townhouse of single-family home purchase or sale. Tommy is extremely knowledgeable of all of the neighborhoods in Northern Virginia, and has educated us on the ins-and-outs of the local market. Tommy have been working in Northern Virginia for several years and has built up a wide-ranging network of lenders, home inspectors, professional stagers, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, architects, painters, handymen and many others - his network can become your network. As an added bonus, Tommy was always be available to show properties or just discuss new ideas. Most importantly, he is a good person who I can always trust to do the right thing and provide sound advice, which, in today's world, is priceless.
