I am a devoted professional and have been a full time real estate agent since the mid 1980s.  I was born and educated in Damascus, Syria.   I started my American life in the late 1970s in Arlington and Fairfax Counties until present.  I am fluent in Arabic and English.  I adapted 100% to my American life and citizenship.    My favorite goal is to achieve the American Dream for every person in the United States, according to the guidelines of real estate.  My sales life started with selling businesses, as a business broker and I generated great success for all my clients and customers.  As time passed, my clients and customers demanded my services in selling real estate (actual buildings).  I started to build my real estate business and career in a very strong step, with 9 months at Mount Vernon Realty in Arlington, then changed to RE/MAX Arlington office for a two years, then to RE/MAX Distinctive from the late 1980s until now.  I am easy to talk to, devoted to excellence, strive to provide great customer service and carry my real estate responsibilities with a lot of INTEGRITY.  I am easy to reach and easy to talk to.  You will be fully informed step by step when we work together and you will received prompt and detailed communication and updates as they come.  Your biggest investment in real estate is always in safe hands with Mr. Homsi. 

One of my recent clients, Stefan Schwarz of 4322 Farm House Ln, Fairfax said:

"This is one outstanding realtor. Don't think twice about hiring him to sell your property or find you an ideal one to buy. He knows the business, knows every angle and will think of the things you weren't aware of to market your property for sale. He handles sales with divorced couples very well. Makes sure the partnership is there with all parties and that they are on the same page. He worked very hard for this sale taking on the property during the winter season between the holidays and had a sales contract in a reasonable amount of time. Highly recommend Mr. Homsi!!!!"

Words from other satisfied clients: 

Thank you for your quick response, as always. That was one of the things we loved about working with you. We highly recommend you.”  --Mr. & Mrs. Nowak

 "We just wanted to thank you for your energetic, careful and very professional handling of both our purchase and the sale of our old home. Your experience with the houses and market in our community was invaluable, and we are very pleased with the townhouse you found for us in Alexandria. We feel we did well financially on both transactions. Please feel free to use us as a reference, if there should be any need. "       --Mr. & Mrs. Bruce

I have sold it all, from large to small, through my  30 years of experience.  My biggest residential sale was $12 million with over 20,000 sf living space and I have sold all the way to the smallest price.  All my clients are treated equally.  The satisfaction of my clients is always my aim.  I love the people and I use the money.  I never love the money and use the people.  I have sold land, businesses, commercial and residential and for a time I was the sales & marketing director for Edgemoore builder in the 1990s and also for Calvert Homes in the 2000s.  I have earned a lot of achievement awards over my career and walked the stage with my black tie several times.

I have been doing a great number of divorce sales and I have been able to create calmness, good communication and a big smile for everyone walking to settlement.  I am part of the solution.  I never like conflict.  Give me a call and I promise I will do my best to achieve your goals in real estate.

You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.

06/27/2018 - The Yang Family

Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for - at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we'll definitely be calling you!

“Homsi Sells” It is not a mere saying, not a catchy phrase, nor is it a nonsensical sales slogan. It’s a fact! Mr. Homsi is a consummate professional when it comes to the real estate business, and market. His knowledge base and business acumen coupled with a very high inner work standard make him a credit to his chosen profession. His experience, knowledge base and ability to quickly understand issues provide him the foundation to confidently recommend solutions that are likely to lead to a positive outcome for his clients. I have known Mr. Homsi, both personally and professionally, for over twenty (20) years. During that timeframe, he has been the selling agent for a home that I purchased and he has been the selling agent for a home that I sold. He recently represented me through the construction, closing, and move in phases of a home that I had built. He is still involved in all phases of punch-out and final contractual issues. I would not, and do not, hesitate to seek his sage advice and counsel. Mr. Homsi is a consummate professional, but more importantly he is a valued friend.

I initially met Mr. Homsi when we purchased a home, he was the selling agent. We were so impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of the area that we contacted him to sell the home he sold us. He has his finger on the pulse of the market and guides you in the right direction in making a responsible, well informed decision. You definitely know that Mr. Homsi has your best interest in mind, as he makes you feel as if you are his most important client at all times. Mr. Homsi will always be my agent as I know from experience it is never about the commission with him, it is all about what is best for and meeting the needs of his clients. He is a consummate professional.

Mr. Homsi was a pleasure to work with. He represented a purchaser on a sale of a condo in Reston. He was extremely professional, and was one of the most gracious Realtors I ever worked with. He wrote a very solid contract offer, and handled every aspect of the transaction well. I would like to work with him again, anytime.

He has a strong knowledge of the local community and luxury home features.
He was a pleasure to work with and very thorough with his analysis and recommendations

We wanted to downsize, and that involved selling our large house in Vienna, VA. We asked Mr. Homsi to handle that, followed his advice, and managed to sell the house quickly and for an excellent price in a sluggish market. His experience with the homes and market in our community was invaluable. We had initially looked to another realtor located in Alexandria, VA to help us find a townhouse there, but were disappointed. We turned to Mr. Homsi, and he found us a townhouse with which we have been very pleased, at a reasonable price. He is a good listener, straightforward, proactive, and thoroughly professional. We feel we did well financially on both transactions.We recommend him without reservation.

03/02/2013 - user1833357

Mr. Homsi is the consummate real estate professional. He has been our realtor for buying our house and later obtaining great renters. We continue to seek out his advise and will use him in all our future real estate business.

03/01/2013 - user28698421

We had a wonderful experience working with Tarafa to sell our house. He gave us excellent advice on staging the house for sale and setting the sale price. He developed a strategic approach to market the property which proved to be very effective He built anticipation among the other realtors and as a result we sold the house in one day! During the entire process he kept us informed and was extremely responsive to our phone calls and texts. He stayed on top of all the details and presented us with a schedule of all the activities that had to happen to go from contract through to a successful closing. Without reservation, we give Tarafa our strongest possible recommendation. He is professional, a true gentleman and a pleasure to worth with.

Mr. Homsi made our house shopping and purchasing experience a pleasure. He has a great sense for the market and for reading people. Remains easily accessible while knowing when to give the customer space. He uses technology appropriately to minimize the distractions of paper shuffling.

Mr. Homsi review your property before listig and makes recomendations on what needs to be fixed or repaired then he makes visits while the seller is the repairs done to be sure that every thing is working accordingly. He adds some decores bfore listing the proerty to make it look even better. During the listing period he update the seller about and the property is sold. I am also using him to buy me some other properties.

Mr. Homsi is the most professional, smart and very intriguing agent you can hire. He is very experienced and with all of this experience comes the care and attention to detail in your transaction. I would not hesitate to have him on my side. He really listens to your needs and also knows how to negotiate. In this market we are in... you need someone who knows what they are doing and Tarafa Homsi with RE/MAX behind him... is the one.

Mr. Homsi helped us buy our first home. The experience was both educational and smooth. Mr. Homsi is very knowledgeable about the real state market in the Northern Virginia area including: accessibility, schools and resale value.

He certainly worked hard on our behalf and helped us purchase our dream home at $10K below asking price in a very hot market.

We highly recommend Mr. Homsi
