As a native Washingtonian, Ria knows the DC Metro area like her back yard.
She was born overseas but grew up in Vienna and McLean, Virginia. She began her career early on working in the custom home building industry, and later expanded into commercial real estate. Her passion for real estate led her to work as a Sales and Marketing Manager for several local and regional builders in the area. Ria brings construction knowledge, marketing expertise and great customer relations to her career in residential real estate.
Ria has a consultative approach, which combined with her comprehensive real estate experience, negotiating skills, and extensive knowledge of the area and surrounding markets allows her to provide outstanding results. She strives to build strong, long-lasting relationships, and become a trusted real estate adviser to her clients.
Other than real estate, Ria enjoys cooking and creating her own recipes. She is an exercise enthusiast who enjoys high-energy workouts and long walks. Whenever possible, Ria and her husband enjoy traveling to new places and visiting friends and family overseas.
We were very pleased with the service we received from Ria Dougherty and Scott Shawkey. They worked closely with us to identify the type of property to best suited our needs, we're patient with us as we explored property after property and then helped us close the deal quickly and effectively. We look forward to working with them in the future.- Bill and Mary Sue H.
