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, I'm involved as a Board Member with the Loudoun Fairfax Mothers of Multiples Club. I'm also an avid outdoor enthusiast: hiking, biking, camping and exploring the natural beauty of Virginia with my husband, kids & German Shepherds.

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. I respect the fact that your transaction isn't like any other – unless you're an investor, your home is where you live and raise your family. Maintaining a sense of empathy for the emotion that goes into buying or selling a home could be the reason why so many of my clients are now my friends.

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)."

As an Associate Broker with Coldwell Banker the support I receive allows me to keep the client as the first focus. We're very well suited to offer enhanced services to help individuals and investors buy and sell homes.

Before moving to Coldwell Banker in Fairfax, I operated and co-owned a Dulles area brokerage with a substantial investment portfolio which specializes in rehabbing abandoned homes. Since 2003 I've worked extensively with connecting distressed sellers with buyers and investors.  Every short sale seller I've worked with has successfully closed.

I developed an in depth understanding of the corporate relocation process from working with a top ranked and Nationally Certified Relocation Broker.  I've also been featured on Fox 5 as a local area expert.  In Arlington I opened a branch office for a local firm and learned more about the unique offerings and hidden gems in the Potomac River corridor.

Starting in new construction sales in 2000, I learned how a house is built from the foundation up.  This is extremely useful in every transaction, but even more so with tear down and rebuilds that are increasingly common in high value neighborhoods. 

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.  Reach out and call today, you'll be glad you did.

Ratings & Reviews

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!

Sold a Condo home in 2005 in Fletcher, NC.

I've proudly known Ariana since she was a youngster because her mother was my very good friend since high school. When I decided to move to NC in 2005, I decided to have Ariana list my home in Alexandria. It was a very good choice because Ari went above and beyond getting my home ready to sell and then selling it very close to the list price. She's always had a big heart, plus she has even more experience now. I would highly recommend Ariana to anyone considering buying or selling. Thank you, Ariana!  More Less

Bought a Townhouse home in 2009 in Centreville, VA.

We purchased a townhouse in Centreville a few years ago. She helped us find a lovely property in our price range. It was a short-sale situation and the bank was hard to work with. Ariana was very knowledgeable and very patient in taking us step by step through a difficult transaction. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a new home.  More Less
