Lauren Budik

After growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta and earning a Bachelor of Journalism at the University of Missouri, I moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 2009. My husband and I recently completed a two-year overseas tour with the State Department. We currently live in Reston, where we purchased our first home in 2014.

I specialize in residential real estate in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. in any price range, from condos to townhouses and single family homes. My goal is to help you in the rental, sale or purchase of your home with the utmost honesty, integrity and enthusiasm, while making the entire process as stress-free as possible. Many of my clients have foreign service, government or military backgrounds and select me to represent them because I truly do understand the special needs and circumstances of those who serve our country. I’ve helped many individuals and families relocate to the metro D.C. area — both domestically and from overseas — because of their job or TDY with the State Dept., U.S. government, FBI, CIA, military and USAID.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing with our 4-year-old Sheltie named Lily, traveling, cheering on the Missouri Tigers and eating sushi. I’m also a member of the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce and serve on the Young Professionals committee.
