About Cathy Poungmalai

My Client-First Philosophy

As a top agent in the Northern Virginia real estate market for over 15 years, I believe that putting my clients first is the key to my success.  This “client-first” philosophy drives me to continually build my skills and consistently rank in the top 1% of Realtors nationwide.  I have a passion for studying homes and prices every day.  When you hire me, you can expect timely communication, expert market knowledge, honest advice and effective negotiation on your behalf. 

As a listing agent, my goal is to help you net the most amount of money as quickly and smoothly as possible.  I will work with you to price your home correctly and then aggressively market it with professional staging, photography, high-quality printed materials and premium online placement.  My staff and I work full-time to keep you informed and help you navigate the sales process from start to SOLD! 

As a buyer’s agent, I will do much more than just open the door.  From day one, I will help you hone in on homes that meet your search criteria and budget.  I take a proactive approach to finding listings, reaching out to my extensive network to find homes that may not even be on the market.  When we find your ideal home, we develop a winning offer strategy.  Whether you are upsizing, downsizing, investing or relocating, I can help you find your new home. 

If you’re thinking of selling or buying, call me directly at (703) 786-5776 or contact me here and let’s get started today!

Areas served: All of Northern Virginia including Arlington, Falls Church, McLean, all of Fairfax County, Alexandria City, Oakton and Vienna as well as D.C. and Maryland.
