Gary's most recent endorsements
"Amazing realtor! Gary was patient, thoughtful, bold, knowledgeable, friendly, caring, hardworking, and he found us the perfect home. We trusted Gary to represent us and he did so with integrity. He goes above and beyond for his clients. We would recommend Gary to anyone." Joe & Cheri– Gary Hughes
"Gary was amazing! Helped us find the dream home, and win it even without being the highest bidder. He had a mortgage lender that could close in two weeks over the Christmas holiday (while his wife delivered their second child). Post sales service was just as amazing. He brought us necessities to make the move in go much smoother and still invites us to his client parties. Couldn't recommend Gary more." Cameron D– Gary Hughes
"If you are buying a house, considering buying a house, or you can spell the word "house," do yourself a favor and call Gary. There is no way I would have gotten my home if not for him. There were multiple competing offers, including at least one higher than mine. Gary was persistent and personable, which is why I think that my lower offer was accepted. We ended up having the worst seller imaginable, but Gary not only kept the deal together but also made it smooth sailing on my end while he championed my interests and brought us to closing. Truly superb" Crystal M– Gary Hughes
"Gary has helped my husband and I buy and sell homes. Gary is both personable and knowledgeable, a rare combination today. He is an excellent negotiator and has helped us to be successful in both property acquisition and sales. He always looks out for our best interests and is fair with the other parties. I would highly recommend Gary for complex transactions as well as simple ones. He is great!" Nancy B– Gary Hughes
"When I accepted a new job in another State, there was a lot on my mind. The transition can be pretty stressful but, thanks to Gary, the process of selling my home was the least stressful part of my move. I knew I would need someone who would be able to pick up the ball and run with it with little involvement from me (since I would be out of the area). I met with several realtors and felt comfortable and confident with Gary. He was by far the most prepared of the realtors I met and was quick to respond to any inquiry. Gary did all the heavy lifting and although this was my first home sale, the process went smoothly. He was both pleasant and honest about our negotiations. He let me know where he felt we had leverage and where the buyer had leverage in the negotiation. This helped me to walk away from a couple of unreasonable offers, and also know when to give a little in my position. The house was sold after only 2 months on the market and most of that time we were negotiations with a buyer. I appreciate all that Gary did for me, and how well the process went."– Gary Hughes
"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 the 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 Alexandria, VA– Gary Hughes
"Gary offered his service to help sell my elderly aunt's property, as an acquaintance 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." Helen P. Alexadria– Gary Hughes
