About Tarafa

Tarafa Homsi


Get To Know Me

To know me, the most important thing I can say about myself is that I am a “people person.”  I love to meet new people and I always learn something from them.  That’s why I have loved working in real estate.  I can honestly say that is the best job for me.

I was born and educated in Damascus, Syria and I started my life in America in the late 1970s.  I am fluent in Arabic and English and my favorite word in the English language is “integrity.”

I am a devoted professional and have worked full time in real estate since 1987, first focusing on Arlington County and then expanding to Fairfax County and the rest of Northern Virginia.  In the 1990s I was the marketing director for Edgemoore Homes and I achieved the distinction of being the NVAR Number 1 New Home Sales Agent in 1993 and 1994 and the Number 3 New Home Sales Agent in 1995 and 1996.   In the 2000s I held this position for Calvert Homes for a short time and those years of experience working with builders gave me a great insight into the sales of new construction homes and buying from blue prints.  I have sold a wide variety of properties from small condominiums to large luxury homes and everything in between.   I have earned many achievement awards over my career but my biggest achievement is to help my clients reach the American Dream of owning their own home.

Give me a call and I promise I will do my best to achieve your goals in real estate.


See why my clients love working with me.
