Anna Lobova | Agent
Anna Lobova exceeds her clients' expectations with her commitment to diligent and reliable service. How funny it is that she was almost not in real estate at all!
Anna was well positioned to pursue a career in financial planning, having regularly earned a spot on the President's Lists during her studies in Economics and Marketing at the University of Mary Washington.
But then she realized: the financial and marketing savvy from her education, along with her knack for finding creative resolutions to problems, topped off with her dedication to premier client service -- it all added up to a perfect fit for real estate.
And now as part of a real estate team of seasoned, motivated individuals who share her dedication to diligence, reliability, and client service, there is no question Anna's path led her to the right place!
Anna moved to Virginia from Urals, Russia. When she's not busy with clients, you'll find her visiting local restaurants and working out. Passionate about traveling, Anna makes a point to visit somewhere she's never been, at least once each year.

Keith now resides in Loudoun County where he is involved extensively with youth sports as both a coach and proud parent of two boys.
