Shortly after earning a law degree from Washington & Lee University, Neil and his family moved to Fairfax County. For the last twenty-one years, they have called Reston home. Neil spent five years working in Washington, DC as legislative counsel to a national non-profit organization before joining his wife Kristina in their real estate practice. Together, Kristina and Neil have 40 years experience helping clients buy, sell and rent homes throughout Virginia and Maryland.
While the majority of his work is in Fairfax, Loudoun, Arlington and Montgomery Counties, Neil has helped clients buy and sell homes from Fredericksburg to Lovettsville to Prince George’s County. Neil has represented clients who are buying their first home, those buying retirement property and everything in between. He has successfully represented clients in the one hundred thousand dollar range and those purchasing and selling million dollar properties.
Buying or selling a home is an enormous and complex undertaking. It is also a very personal one. In recognition of the personal nature of the process, Neil has geared his practice around three key elements: Education, Communication and Confidence. It is paramount for Neil that his clients understand every step of the process as well as all of the options, opportunities and potential ramifications of each decision. Real estate transactions are dynamic undertakings. They are filled with moving parts, deadlines and obligations. They also involve a host of parties. Regular communication here is essential. Clients who feel educated and informed are also confident; they understand the process and feel comfortable knowing that they are the ones driving the train.
When not working with his clients, Neil enjoys watching his children’s sporting events and concerts, hiking and taking advantage of the area’s rich cultural opportunities. The Evans family values learning about our diverse national heritage through regular visits to the National Park System. Community involvement is also a big part of the Evans family lifestyle and Neil has been active in coaching, volunteer teaching and civic education. From 2008 through 2010 he was also a visiting professor at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia and worked on a humanitarian and environmental project in the Middle East.
