About Me

When the time comes for your next move, don't settle for any ordinary real estate professional. Let my strong values, years of experience and growth-oriented philosophy help you make a Lasting Impact with the sale of purchase of a home in Northern Virginia. My intuitive nature makes me easy to work with and I bring a tenacious spirit that is valuable in negotiations. I am also deeply committed to giving back to our community whether it's through my neighborhood civic association or organizations that work to prevent homelessness. Being able to impact people's lives in such a positive way keeps me inspired. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help people with something as important as their home.

You can view my past sales history on my website PropertiesInVA.com. I work all of the Northern VA area including Alexandria, Arlington, Ashburn, Burke, Centerville, Chantilly, Clifton, Lorton, Fairfax, Falls Church, Herndon, Reston, Springfield, Sterling and Vienna. I also have an intimate understanding of relocation; I lived and worked in Prague, CZ, from 1993 - 1997, in outboard motor and aluminimum boat manufacturing—upon our return to the US we settled in Falls Church, VA. I was born and raised in south eastern Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan with a major in Communications. Currently, I live in the City of Fairfax and always appreciate the opportunity to be of real estate service.

“We were especially grateful for all of the work Yanji did managing updates to the house, as we were not living in Virginia at the time. Yanji has an incredible eye for detail and was in constant communication and regularly on-site to keep contractors on timeline and to ensure that the quality of the work being done was high. Yanji was respectful of our budget and advised on how we could best allocate our funds to maximize our return. Her counsel was indispensable, and we could not have navigated this process without her!”
Trish Kepler, Riverside,CT (Seller)
“Yanji was recommended by my previous agent Mary Postma. I had had a very good experience with Mary so I was very interested in working with Yanji. Yanji recommended a handyman who did excellent work. His help was indispensable. Yanji consistently provided quick, excellent advice. She was always cool under pressure. Yanji helped me deal with a very difficult COVID sales environment last year. My initial closing fell through and I rented to my "buyer" for almost a year. Then we went back on the market and the sale went through quickly. I cannot recommend Yanji highly enough!”
Doug, Santa Fe (Seller)
“Yanji was wonderful to work with. She listened to what my needs and concerns for the property were, and then articulated a clear methodology to take things forward step by step to finish the sale. I was kept informed of every detail as events progressed. My questions were both anticipated and answered with such high degree of expertise and thoroughness that I never doubted I was in the care of a knowledgeable professional. I will recommend Yanji and certainly request her services again when needed in the future.”
Bob Kepler, Fairfax, Virginia (Seller)
“Yanji Lama has been my "go-to" agent for years, handling the rental of my two properties. I cannot say enough about her professionalism, patience, marketing-sense, and honesty. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, Yanji is at least a 12. ”
Michael Ballard, Great Falls (Seller)
“Yanji was absolutely outstanding, in every aspect of the home purchasing process. She truly cared about what my partner and I wanted and needed in a first home. ”
Kirsten Kelley, Woodbridge (Buyer)
“I was dreading the ordeal of selling and buying, but Yanji Lama made what might have been a daunting process very easy and much less stressful. Yanji was there for us every step of the way. I never worried that we would miss a deadline or let anything fall through the cracks because she was on top of every detail. I wouldn't consider buying or selling a property in this area without Yanji's help and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone embarking on this process. She's a joy to work with.”
Rachel H., Alexandria, VA (Seller)
“We had a great experience with Yanji Lama! She is so knowledgeable about the area and really took the time to understand our needs as a buyer. She also was proactively recommending houses for us to look at. We truly felt like she was our trusted partner in this process and know she was the right person to work with. We will use her again for sure and recommend to anyone who asks. ”
Marie & Steve, Centreville VA (Buyer)
“Yanji is very knowledgeable about our neighborhood and has a great track record there. It was that fact that initially led us to contact her. Later she proved herself to be outstanding in all other respects. I should like to add that she was available, friendly and helpful at all times. Yanji was superbly capable in all respects. She handled all roadblocks calmly and professionally. I would unhesitatingly recommend her.”
Eugene and Helen Ossa. Oswego ny (Seller)
“Yanji is the most knowledgeable, ethical, hard working agent we have ever known. I have nothing but kind words and good reviews for her work. She is by far a top notch agent and does everything possible to make the sale painless and quick for all concerned. I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs. ”
Jack Taylor, Goose Creek, SC (Seller)
“I would absolutely seek to work with Yanji in the future. Her charismatic, honest attitude made our home buying experience easy and enjoyable. Thank you to Yanji and the Redwood Century 21 team.”
Judy Morgan; Springfield, VA (Buyer)
“Yanji helped me through a very difficult and convoluted closing process; she kept me up to date on all the paperwork requirements and the risks associated with each step of the process. I never had to call her to ask her the status of contract contingent, inspection agreements, etc; she was simply fantastic in this regards. Yanji's attention to detail during the open houses (pointing out the risks w/ the HVAC system, water pipes, etc) provided me with more insight about my potential home purchases. The housing inspection and negotiation alone saved me thousands of dollars. We plan to use Yanji again in the future and we would definitely recommend her services to our friends. ”
John, Fairfax Station, VA (Buyer)
“Yanji was great to work with. She quickly understood our requirements both for the sell and purchase; she was knowledgable about what was needed to sell a house quickly in the Fairfax County market. She is an excellent negotiator.”
Julia Pfaff, Fairfax, VA (Seller)
