Evelyn was first introduced to real estate as a young girl when on weekends, her parents would put her and her siblings in the car and tour homes in the neighboring communities of Hartford, Connecticut.

“Evelyn represented us when we bought and when we sold. She is no nonsense and professional, and she went over all of our options with us so we could make informed decisions. She also has a huge and impressive network of professionals she works with, and she only works with the best. She was able to get us the best possible price for our condo, in part because she knew exactly what we should focus on before putting it on the market, and in part because she regularly works with contractors that she knows can get the job done.”
- Jennifer McKinney
“Evelyn helped us locate and purchase a Co-op in SW DC. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, about purchasing a Co-op and the process as a whole. She was also very pleasant and enjoyable to work with, making what could have been a stressful experience seem easy.”

“Having a realtor is part "friend", part "advisor", and a whole of lot of "life coach"! Evelyn showed tough love, a tender heart, and a guiding hand to get the best deals for us. We have both buying and selling experiences with her and her team, so we got to see both ends of the deal.
We initially "found" Evelyn the old fashioned way...calling the listing agent. But, wow, were we impressed. This was way more than a "deal" for her. It was finding the right fit for us. She was available, response, knowledgeable, strategic, considerate...you know, all the things one needs in a realtor (but, one rarely gets).
Evelyn worked diligently on both of our deals, which were very different. With our first interaction, we bought a place in a "hot" area in DC. The transaction was seemingly straightforward, but there are always glitches. She didn't flinch through any of it. She handled each situation with aplomb and made us feel that we were getting the best value.
The second deal she handled was the selling of a rental property we owned. The previous renters did us no favors by trashing the place before they left, but Evelyn helped us find the best option. Even though our place was in a more sedate area (and far from model home condition), we found a buyer in less than three weeks. Then....the closing process.
It was difficult. Negotiations took what seemed like an eternity; the buyers' mortgage company was weeks behind schedule; and a client (that would be me) was always on travel. Honestly, we could not have done this without Evelyn's experience, tenacity, and fortitude. Even when she went on a previously planned vacation she managed to stay appropriately connected.
I'm sure many people gush over their realtors, but it's hard to overstate how much Evelyn personally made a difference in each of our transactions. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again and absolutely recommend her and her team.”

“Over the years, Evelyn Lugo has become a trusted advisor, our agent of choice and a true friend. Evelyn has the unique ability to identify opportunities in any real estate market! She served as our buyer representative when we purchased our first home in DC. Due to life changes, we decided to sell it after only 2 years. We trusted Evelyn every step along the way. She helped us negotiate a terrific purchase price in 2010, suggested renovations that would add value and ultimately sold it for a 30% return on our investment. While we didn’t purchase the home with the intent of selling so soon, she helped us make decisions that protected our investment. We highly recommend Evelyn Lugo for all of your real estate needs. We can’t wait to work with her again on our next purchase.”
- Mathew & Ladavia Drane - Washington, DC
“Evelyn Lugo has been an incredible partner to us during the home selling and buying process. She is top-notch! She knew exactly how to stage our homes to make them look their best and sell quickly. Evelyn is a true expert, helping us determine optimal selling prices and representing us beautifully during our sale negotiations. We've always relied on Evelyn to help make the home sale/purchase process almost effortless.”
- Allison & Chris Bucchere - Arlington, VA
“I had been searching for a house for over a year before I was referred to Evelyn. As a first time homebuyer I was overwhelmed and frustrated with the process. However from my first meeting with Evelyn until the day of my closing my experience was just the opposite. Evelyn’s knowledge of the industry and the market is only surpassed by the genuine care and concern that she showed me during the entire process. I always felt that what was in my best interest was always her main concern and as a result I purchased the perfect house for me. She helped make the American dream my reality and for that I will always be grateful.”
