About Me


I am licensed in DC, MD, and VA.  I have 10 years of experience helping clients buy and sell in all three jurisdictions.


I am very diligent and work very hard for all my clients while bringing my top notch negotiating skills, excellent contacts in the industry, and I use the latest technology to provide superior service. My repeat customers and referrals from friends and family are a true mark of unparalleled service in today’s real estate industry. As a member of the million dollar club over many years, I have the knowledge, skills, and experience to assist with all your real estate needs.


I take great pride in working with people from around the world. Having lived and traveled to many countries, I bring the unique international perspective to my clients. I have successfully assisted international clients: list and sell investment properties, buy a home for their family in the DC Metro area, and helped overseas clients relocate here.


I do not believe in “pressure tactics” which do not serve my clients real estate interests. The home buying and selling process is stressful enough and I  look to minimize the stress by providing critical information in a timely manner, in-depth research, and offer my guidance from years of experience to reach a smart and beneficial decision.


For sellers, I work to sell your home as quickly as possible by creating a custom tailored marketing plan to maximize its visibility and generate interests in your home. This effective strategy gets your home sold quickly to minimize your selling costs.


For buyers, I guide you through the entire process by providing consultations, market updates, scheduling property visits, attending open houses, negotiating best price & contingencies, working with home inspectors, title companies, loan officers, and contractors.

I am an experienced professional realtor offering superior services to my clients in the Metro DC area. I welcome an opportunity to work with you

“Tatyana went above and beyond to assist my sister with her home search and purchase a few years back. She has always gone above and beyond to ensure that I received the same outstanding commitment and service! She was instrumental in the acceptance of my offer on the home that I purchased. She relentlessly pursued the selling agent, eventually convincing her to rescind a previous offer and sell the home to me instead. I can't express how grateful I am to have worked with her! She is always extremely pleasant and personable, but firm with making sure that I received the assistance that I needed from the loan company and other individuals associated with the purchase. She was able to successfully convince the selling agent to sell the home to me instead of a previous buyer who placed an offer on the house Tatyana is extremely knowledgeable, punctual, patient, and so pleasant and personable. She was truly a joy to work with! I will definitely recommend Tatyana to any friends looking to purchase a home in the future!”
Laurinda Susan Wellington (Buyer)
“We are very glad we worked with Tatyana and will be happy to refer her to any of our friends and family.”
Nathan Larsen, Alexandria (Buyer)
“Tatyana was great! Very patient and knowledgeable about all the important steps that we needed to take as first time homebuyers and was able to gently steer us away from potentially poor and costly decisions. We're very happy with the condo that she helped us find and can't wait to refer our friends to her for their house hunting!”
Jeff and Sophie (Buyer)
“Tatyana was a pleasure to work with. This was my second purchase with her as my realtor. She was there to help and add her expertise every step of the way through both purchases. Her knowledge and experience were extremely helpful from scouring listings for me all the way to closing. I look forward to working with her again and highly recommend to anyone else looking to buy/sell in DMV.”
Chris, Washington DC (Buyer)
“There is no other person I would trust more with my real estate needs than Tatyana. I’ve had the opportunity to build a relationship and she always has my best interests in mind. It’s pretty much an auto-pilot situation at this point because I know if it’s coming from her, word is bond. ”
Joshua B., Washington, DC (Seller)
“Whether I was buying or selling, I felt Tatyana always put my interests first. She consistently went above and beyond to answer questions and prepare my property for sale. With her friendly demeanor and consummate professionalism, I came to implicitly trust Tatyana and had absolutely no issue with her representing my family's interests. She was always transparent with good news and bad. After closing, saying goodbye to her was almost harder than saying goodbye to the house. For something as important as buying or selling a home, I honestly can't recommend someone any more than Tatyana. ”
Brad White, Springfield VA (Seller)
“Tatyana Lara is a phenomenal agent who led us carefully and knowledgeably through each step of the process. From the beginning she took all of our requirements into account and worked to find appropriate options. However, she also took the time to educate us on the realities of the real estate markets in which we were searching to make sure that we were making informed decisions. Tatyana was our most trusted source throughout the entire process and when we look for other properties in the future, she will be our first (and only) call. ”
Allen Krause, Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“Tatyana was referred to us by a friend and we received very positive comments regarding her professionalism and attentiveness to the needs of her clients. Upon meeting her, we knew right away we wanted to work with her. She was excellent. After our offer was submitted, she made sure to follow up with us every step of the way. She was always very accessible and willing to answer any questions we had timely. Tatyana went above and beyond to fulfill any requests that we had. This experience could not have been any better and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. ”
Jeff Frost & Janet Fisher (Buyer)
“We could not be happier with Tatyana! She was the perfect match for us and made looking for our new home like spending an afternoon with an old friend. She was absolutely wonderful.”
Christopher Hunt, Fairfax (Buyer)
“Tatyana worked so hard for my family to find the perfect home. She worked around our schedule, on the weekends and later evenings to ensure we saw all the choices of homes in MD. She was excellent in advocating for us and ensuring all the steps were taken for an easy closing.”
Ben and Tammy, Maryland (Buyer)
“Tatyana kept her enthusiasm as we explored a large variety of houses throughout the DC area in Virginia and Maryland over a five month period. Her home inspector recommendation saved us from buying several homes that had major hidden problems. In the end we found our dream home at a good price. Thanks Tatyana!”
Merritt and Olga Lincoln, Fairfax, VA (Buyer)
“My husband and I felt Tatyana tried her very best to get us the best deal possible in purchasing our condo. She had good ideas communicating with the agent and the seller. We think very highly of Tatyana and have told others of our satisfaction in dealing with her.”
Charlotte Shapiro Silver Spring (Buyer)
“I was a first time homebuyer, and Tatyana made my journey so easy and smooth. She was always there for me everytime I needed her. I had no knowledge of buying a home and process that comes with it, but Tatyana showed me every step and explained it accurately. I would recommend Tatyana to everyone. I love her! Thank you Tatyana Lara”
