I truly love the Capital area, and I extend that enthusiasm to all of my clients. A Northern Virginia native, I graduated from The Madeira School in McLean, and earned my Graduate Degree at American University in D.C.
As a Mother of Twins and an involved parent I volunteer in my local community as a PTA board member & as a Mid-Atlantic Parents of Multiples Regional Delegate. I'm also an avid outdoor enthusiast: hiking, kayaking, camping and exploring the natural beauty of Virginia with my husband, kids & German Shepherds. I am passionate about dog rescue and we are a foster family for several local rescues.
A true "people person," my favorite part of being a REALTOR® is the opportunity to become acquainted with so many interesting people and help them realize their goals. As one client put it: "She can answer or get an answer for any question you have during this process and educate you along the way. She knows the business like the back of her hand and doesn't take no for an answer. YOU are her top priority. She is quick to answer your phone calls, emails and any question you may have (no matter how silly it seems)."
I have a rich history in real estate- as an award winning top producer at Coldwell Banker as a team and as an individual; co-owning a Dulles area brokerage with a substantial investment portfolio & we specialized in rehabbing distressed homes.
I also developed an in depth understanding of the corporate relocation process from working with a top ranked and Nationally Certified Relocation Broker during the height of the real estate market. I've been featured in The Washingtonian Magazine in their Top Real Estate Agents edition, and also featured on Fox 5 as a local area expert.
Starting in new construction sales in 2001, my fundamental knowledge came from learning how to build a house from the ground up. This is extremely useful in every transaction, but even more so with new construction purchases, tear down and rebuilds, and custom home building that are increasingly common in our area.
My belief is that knowledge of today's market leads to good decisions. When clients know what to expect at each step it makes the entire experience of buying & selling a home more enjoyable for everyone.

Ariana is an exceptional Realtor. She was with us in our search for a home in Leesburg/Ashburn area for several months. When we were disheartened about the market or condition of a home she was right there with suggestions and helpful advice. Even after we closed on our home she was available for contractor contacts and assistance. I would highly recommend Ariana in your home search or selling your home. – Jennifer L.
Amazing realtor! From listing to closing on our house sale, Ariana helped us through every step along the way. She was very communicative and made the sale very easy by taking over lots of the little details of prepping the house for showing. 110% satisfied with everything she did for us and would highly recommend to anyone buying or selling! - Jason K.
Ariana is an AMAZING agent. She is knowledgeable, dependable, flexible, and really works hard for you. Ariana understood the priorities I had for my home while shopping for one and showed me options that suited my needs. She was available at off hours and made everything very convenient (from showing me houses to ensuring a smooth closing). I love the house I purchased in McLean. I would recommend her to get the job done. She will be my realtor for life! - Catherine H.
Ariana helped us sell our home in Ashburn. She helped us to prepare the house for market by using her network of vendors to get the necessary work done and managed the interactions with them on our behalf. Because of the initial prep work she recommended, her knowledge of the area, and magnificent marketing, we had a contract less than 24 hours after hitting the market. She managed all of the remediations needed as a result of the various inspection for us. It allowed us the peace of mind that everything was being taken care, our money was spent wisely and we were prepared for a smooth closing from our side. – Melissa M.
Ariana is the best! She was fun, energetic, and caring about finding us a home. My husband and I moved across the country and were not familiar with the Northern Virginia area, and Ariana helped us identify the neighborhoods that best fit our style and needs. She is incredibly knowledgeable and was always quick to respond when we had any questions. We were first-time home buyers, and she helped us feel prepared, informed, and at ease. I'm also sure she would fight (and take down) a lion to get us the best deal. We feel so fortunate that we found Ariana! – Jen M.
We sold and bought a house with Ariana in 2013. She took the time to listen and understand our needs and was masterful when we found the right house in closing the deal and getting us the best price/value. We highly recommend her services. - Dan M.
Ariana Gillette is by far THE BEST real estate agent around Northern Virginia. She is a true go-getter and has the energy of a 20 year old. She will guide you every step of the way through the buying or selling process. My husband and I worked with Ariana to buy our first home and then sell it when we decided to move. We love her. She knows her stuff and was available to us at all times of the day and even late at night. She always kept us up to date on the progress of our purchase and sale. She gave us local insider info on different areas of Northern Virginia that we didn't know about. She is a true native of the area and can tell you where to get the absolute best German sandwich or crab cake. She's energetic, charming, and very smart. We highly recommend her! – Amy L.
I was fortunate to be represented by Ariana Gillette. She is a bright, creative, pleasant and hard working professional. She is well-versed in all aspects of the real estate world. She thinks through every step of the process and is always considerate of the seller’s objectives and perspective. When an issue would come up, Ariana was already solving the problem, providing back up plans and was always immediately available to discuss any concerns. She is well respected in the industry and the support from her network of professional service personnel was also exceptional. Ariana always went the extra mile and her vivacious personality and positive attitude always made me feel I was her number one client. She is an awesome person and I have enjoyed working with her. I do not hesitate in recommending her to my friends and associates, Thank you, Ariana! – Darlene G.
