Buying Help

Buying a new home in Virginia is a serious undertaking. It can be fun, it can be challenging, and most of all it’s an important investment in your future. Choosing a new home that fits your vision for both form and function is about more than just putting a roof over your head, it’s investing in a community and a lifestyle. It is important to have buying help.

When you think about buying a new home, have these thoughts run through your mind?

  • “Where is the best place for me to live?”
  • “Will this take a long time?”
  • “How much money do I need to make to afford the monthly payments?”
  • “Who can I talk to about getting the best mortgage?”

If this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place. Whether this is your first home, your next home, or you’re a long-time investor, I can help make the process of buying in the Arlington, Virginia area an easier experience for you.

The Mike Pugh Difference

Wonder why you should use me when it comes to purchasing real estate in Arlington and the Northern Virginia area?

Focus on You

It’s not statistics or awards that inspire me to do what I do – it’s satisfied clients who love their new homes, are excited about their future. I take the time to understand your vision, personal style, and practical needs. Then I take a hands-on approach throughout the entire process, striving to create a stress-free and rewarding experience for you.

Protecting Your Interests

Real estate is constantly changing, not to mention challenging. You need a knowledgeable advocate that you can be confident is looking out for your best interests. As a Real Estate Consultant with more than 30 years as a licensed Realtor, I provide the knowledge, insight and professional guidance essential for a positive buying experience.

Over 30 Years of Market Knowledge

My experiences in handling numerous renovations and real estate transactions over the last three decades will help you answer the important contextual questions: What potential does a property have? Is the home the best choice for your needs? Will a better opportunity come along in the future? What direction is the market headed and how will it affect your purchase? How will trends or other factors affect your resale value?

Insider Knowledge

Often, some properties are not made available to the public for discretion or security concerns, or they are simply previewed among the market insiders before they are listed publicly. My solid reputation with other agents on local and national levels means that you will have privileged insight into unique opportunities before the general public.

Specialized Consultants

You will have access to my hand-picked network of contractors and vendors to help assess properties, determine renovation costs in advance and see the potential.

Open, Honest, and Prompt Communication

I stay in full communication via the best method for you – text, phone, email, etc. – and make sure that you are always in-the-know with the latest updates and opportunities without intruding into your busy life. You can rely on me to listen to your needs, share my insight honestly, and return your messages promptly.


Working with me, you can be assured that you will have an advocate looking out for your best interests – even if it means talking you out of a home that isn’t the right match or the best opportunity.

Indispensable Real Estate Resource

I first reached out to Mike when he had a listing in the development I lived in at the time.  Three houses (purchased using him) and thirteen years later, we don't consider Mike a real estate agent, we consider him one of our closest, most trusted friends and advisor .  He has helped us redesign the kitchen in our current house, counselled me on renting the two previous properties, recommended an outstanding designer and contractors and provides excellent ideas about enriching the home and great advice. We think of Mike as an indispensable real estate resource who can help with every facet of the home buying and owning experience.

Great Knowledge & Insight

I have lived in Northern Virginia for 15 years now and owned four different properties and have used Mike Pugh for each purchase and sale.  His knowledge and insight of the Arlington/Northern Virginia marketplace has made it very easy to work with him.  He clearly points out ways to realize and increase value, has great vision and a very "green thumb" when it comes to landscaping for curb appeal and our climate.  I highly recommend him to any future home owner that wants to own or sell their real estate in this area.  When it's time for our next home, there is no doubt that I will work with Mike again.

Great to Work With!

We worked with Mike on the purchase of our first home, its recent sale and and the purchase of our  current “forever” house. He was just great to work with on all three transactions. Mike made this stressful process bearable.

Great Initiative

Mike went above the call of duty for me by identifying and successfully bidding for a property that wasn't even on the market - it’s that initiative I appreciate and expect when calling mike for my next move-up home.

Frank O. - Arlington, VA

We will never make a move without Mike. On a few occasions, Mike talked us out of buying properties we were considering. In the end, he found us the perfect home at a great price. His judgement is sound and he was always there for us.
