A native of Falls Church, Virginia, where he grew up playing with two younger brothers in the cul-de-sac in front of his house, Doug Richards has witnessed first-hand the transformation of Northern Virginia from a sleepy suburb to a vibrant economic center. Pairing that personal knowledge with the experience of living here his entire life, Doug has the enthusiasm and passion for bringing buyers and sellers together in the place he calls home.
Doug graduated from James Madison University before joining one of the nation’s largest new home developers, where he drove more than $100 million in sales in just four years and honed his expert sales and negotiating skills.
Seeking day-to-day diversity and the satisfaction that can only come from perfectly matching a home and a buyer, Doug joined TTR Sotheby’s International Realty in 2017 and has never looked back.
Doug is recognized as a top agent by Northern Virginia Magazine and Real Producers Magazine and has earned a reputation as a highly-effective communicator and sharp negotiator. Described by clients as a “responsive” and “stand-out” realtor who goes “above and beyond,” Doug’s pulse on local market conditions and instinctive ability to list a home at the right time and the right price make him a skilled listing agent.
A hard-working realtor who exudes perseverance, compassion, and integrity, Doug’s passion for people is clear from the moment you meet him. He has an organized approach to helping clients navigate the sales process as simply as possible, and thrives on that moment when he sees the light in a client’s eyes that says this is home.
Doug is an active member of his community, supporting Children’s National Hospital, Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts and several Vienna, Virginia-based charitable organizations including BRAWS, and the Vienna Little League.
When he’s not working, Doug can be found spending time with his wife Julie, two daughters, and dogs Macy and Chance (preferably on a beach somewhere!), attending sporting events, or shopping for his signature colorful socks.
