"Lavina worked quickly, tirelessly, and expertly to get us into our new apartment as soon as possible. She was wonderful to work with and consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. I joked with her that she is "the hardest working woman in show business," but it is true! Lavina helped to alleviate a great deal of stress during a stressful time, and we are eternally grateful for her guidance, expertise, and kindness." - Beth
"We worked primarily with Lavina, and we could not have been happier with her in helping us buy our first home. She really knows her stuff about DC neighborhoods (especially when it comes to knowing where the best places to eat and drink are near every home we looked at). She helped us through our 6-month search with the same great energy throughout. She answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly, and was patient when we asked the same things over and over again. In a competitive market, she helped us maximize the value of our offer, even when we didn't think we would be the highest bidder and helped us with her excellent negotiation skills. We would and will recommend to anyone looking for a realtor." - Chip
"Lavina has been amazing to work with. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate industry and very client oriented. She has been always available and ready to answer my questions, help navigate the entire buying process and provide a genuine and prompt advice. She has high integrity and always puts her clients interests first. I am highly recommending Lavina and will definitely choose her in my future real estate endeavors." - Stela
"I recently bought my very first apartment and had a wonderful experience with Lavina!! I was clueless about the process when we started off but felt very comfortable throughout thanks to Lavina. Looking back, I am very happy with all the decisions I made with her help and guidance. Lavina is really excellent at her job, is highly knowledgeable and always very responsive - at all times during the process I felt really well taken care of, got very useful and prompt answers to all my questions and much appreciated reminders for the steps I needed to take. Lavina really went above and beyond!! I can imagine how difficult and stressful the process of buying an apartment can be, but with Lavina it was a very smooth and successful process!! I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent and hope to work with her again in the future. "
"Working with Lavina was the absolute best choice that we made when it came time to look for a house to buy. As a first-time homebuyer, there was a lot to learn. Lavina made sure to keep my wife and I totally engaged with the process. She taught us so much, but without ever making us feel overwhelmed. She was honest, trustworthy, and incredibly smart. Her negotiation skills are unparalleled. I've never seen someone work so hard for her clients. Lavina made us feel like we were her only clients. She was also available to us 24/7/365. I couldn't imagine working with another agent. Lavina was, without a doubt, a perfect agent to work with."
“Tenacious”, “tireless”, and “unparalleled negotiation skills” are just some of the glowing remarks former clients have used to describe Lavina. Known for responsiveness, patience, and an eye for detail — all traits polished in a former career as a news producer, where Lavina thrived under pressure and on deadlines.
Originally from New Jersey, Lavina attended the University of Maryland and never looked back as she made the DC metro area home. A real estate purchase is the most valuable asset many will acquire in a lifetime, and Lavina is honored to be a part of the process for her clients.
In her rare free time, Lavina enjoys vegetarian international cuisine and satisfying her sweet tooth. Lavina takes great pride in volunteering with local organizations such as Iona Senior Services where she delivers groceries to senior citizens in the DC area and working with women at Dress for Success.
