Gary Hughes has been rated by 23 customers


“Gary was extremely helpful and understanding. He took time to learn exactly what we were looking for and delivered. He went above and beyond our expectations. His knowledge of the area helped tremendously. We would highly recommend him!”
M and J Woodbridge, VA (Buyer)
“Gary was excellent! My partner and I are changing duty station and were in the market to purchase our first home. Gary was patient and knowledgeable and also able to explain the real estate process in the beginning of our housing search. He put in an offer on our second day of house search and the offer was accepted in mere hours. The remaining housing purchase process was smooth with Gary and Julie in constant contact. We felt comfortable during the process. We will be working with Gary again if we’re able but hopefully not too soon in the future as we’re extremely happy with our recent home purchase! Would highly recommend Gary! ”
Chelsea B. - Arlington (Buyer)
“Excellent realtor...this was my third transaction with Gary in less than two years, and I highly recommend him. He is very accommodating and knows the DMV market very well. You won't be disappointed.”
Greg M, Alexandria (Buyer)
“When I relocated to the DC Metro area less than two years ago, I was very fortunate that my relocation company referred me to Gary Hughes to assist me with my home purchase. I have stayed in touch with Gary since that first transaction, and when I recently decided that condo living wasn't for me, there was no question on who I'd use as my realtor. Gary is top notch, and I highly recommend to anyone!”
Greg McElroy, Alexandria (Seller)
“Gary is a very honest man who will keep his customer's best interest in mind.”
Richard Severe, Springfield, VA (Buyer)
“My selection of a realtor was based on a referral from my relocation company. That's always taking a chance, but I knew immediately upon meeting him that Gary Hughes was a fantastic agent and the right person to help me find my home. As I had not lived here before, I wasn't sure if I wanted to be in DC or VA. Gary was knowledgeable of both areas, showing me numerous properties in DC, Arlington, and Alexandria. In looking at properties, Gary had a keen eye for detail, pointing out even the most minor of potential defects--something I highly valued. He also spelled out important difference between buying in DC/MD versus VA. Gary Hughes made the entire process seem painless. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a top-notch realtor in the area. ”
Greg McElroy, Alexandria, VA (Buyer)
“Gary exceeded expectations from the beginning to the end of our purchase. He was accountable for all results, whether or not he was personally responsible. He communicated clearly and consistently throughout the entire process and showcased a high-level of emotional intelligence. He persistently checked-in with us and efficiently organized paperwork. He knew the subject matter and local area very well and was able to answer most questions or know where to find answers. He is an exceptional realtor, and I would highly recommend him to future clients.”
Michelle Cohen, Arlington, VA (Buyer)
“Gary was extraordinary agent and I have great confidence in him. He did way way more than most agents do. I just can't speak highly enough of him. He is a man of great character and he was very hard working. ”
Shirley Beacham (Seller)
“Gary offered his service to help sell my elderly aunt's property, as a acqaintence of her . As her niece, I live outside the area and needed Gray's expertise. He was an exceptional agent to work with. Can't say enough about Gary's demeanor, availability for questions and willingness to go the extra mile! I don't think we could have found a better agent. Gary went over and above in making sure the property got and held a contract. He followed it through every step of the way and always made sure I understood each step. He kept in constant almost daily contact with updates, suggestions, and answers to my questions. He was very easy to work with. He made me feel like he was totally invested in selling the property.”
Helene Patterson, Alexandria, Va (Seller)
