    Lex Lianos is an award winning, top producing Realtor affiliated with Weichert Realtors. Currently, he is the #1 agent companywide (out of 4,000 plus agents) for helping clients buy and sell property who started their research on Weichert.com. An award he has won for the past 4 years. He is also the #1 buyer’s agent in the Vienna office of Weichert Realtors and the #5 agent overall in the capital region.

    After graduating from Boston University with a B.A. in Economics and minor in Business Administration, he embarked on an eight year adventure as a professional musician. As a musician, he appeared on major label album releases, a MTV music video, a top 10 song on Billboard’s modern rock charts and toured the US and Europe. Like music, real estate was a passion from an early age; first licensed when he was nineteen he returned to real estate after deciding on more stability than a career in music.

    He joined Metro Realty in Brookline, MA in 1996 and became the managing partner in 1999. In 2001, he was named “Best Realtor” in Boston Magazine’s annual Best of Boston issue. In 2007, he and his wife decided to move closer to her family in Virginia and he became affiliated with Weichert Realtor’s Vienna office.
    From 2007 until the present, Lex has steadily increased his business. To ensure the outcome his clients desire is achieved, Lex does more, works harder and cares about the well-being of his clients beyond the highest of standards. Serving people and guiding his clients through the buying and selling process is something he is passionate about; he loves helping people in general, but more specifically, helping them with their real estate needs.

    After experiencing very strong yearly growth for the past seven years, his personal sales volume was in excess of $25M per year which placed him in the top 0.1% of Realtors nationwide. It was time for a new challenge.

    In 2013, he started a team called Lex Lianos and Associates. Malia Tarasek was the first on board, followed by Jason Goeller in 2014 and Janet Kang in 2015. He and his team are looking forward to continuing helping their clients buy and sell houses with the best outcome and the minimum amount of stress as well as helping his teammates grow personally and professionally. When you serve people with a caring heart and 25 years of professional experience, the sky is the limit. They can’t wait to see what the future holds for their clients and the team.

    Lex lives in Vienna, VA with his wife of 18 years, Sheila, his daughter Sophia and their Boston terrier, Buddy.

What People are Saying

  • Lex is simply put, the best. Thanks to Lex we feel like we ended up in a beautiful home at a great value and were able to get nice return on investment for our old home.

    Lex is simply put, the best. He did a great job assisting us in navigating the challenging and fast paced NoVA real estate market. He was always willing to show us a home as soon as it hit the market and shared his in depth knowledge on home value and what he felt would be the appropriate offer amount. As soon as we got under our contract on our new home he went fast to work on marketing our old home. Thanks to his marketing and promotional efforts he was able to get our old home under contract within a couple weeks and we had closing the day after we moved out. Overall, thanks to Lex we feel like we ended up in a beautiful home at a great value and were able to get nice return on investment for our old home.

    Thank you Lex!

  • After just 2 weeks with working with Lex, we found the house we are living in today.

    As first time home buyers, other than a few Property Virgin episodes under our belt, we had little to no understanding of the home buying experience. We met Lex at an open house in Falls Church and were immediately impressed with his knowledgeable and honest answers. We had gone to quite a few open houses at that point and he was the first agent we met who was genuinely interested and concerned about our house hunt.

    After his follow up phone call, we had decided to transfer our services from our previous agent to Weichert when we realized the level of customer service he was willing to offer. We were mainly concerned with working with an agent who would be able to explain every step of the home buying process thoroughly and Lex more than fulfilled this requirement.

    After just 2 weeks with working with Lex, we found the house we are living in today. Lex’s good humor, savvy, and patience navigated our way smoothly through what is generally to be thought of as a daunting and overwhelming experience (as well as joyous and rewarding, but mostly for first time buyers it’s terrifying).

    We can’t thank him enough for the services he provided and the extra care he gave us, knowing that we had never done this before. We will be recommending him with no hesitation to our friends and family who will be in the market for a new home.

  • We just want to thank you for all your work in the selling of our property, maintaining a positive outlook all the time, and sound advice.

    We are pleased to share with you and potential clients our observations and experiences from having you as our agent in the selling of our Fairfax, Va property. We want this letter to serve as a strong recommendation as it is well deserved . You genuinely demonstrated a consistent professional approach on all aspects of our listing and sales process which we value.

    Our property had been previously listed with agents from competitive firms. The slowing market conditions and for a host of reasons the property did not reach closing. We felt a fresh approach was needed and decided to interview new agents. From the beginning you did an excellent job of presenting a fair market analysis, marketing plan, and overall strategy. While admittedly many realty firms and agents do similar proposals, your personal passion and positive attitude made the difference, We also liked the “no puffery” approach in not telling us what we wanted to hear but rather a factual well organized plan.

    Differences in your listing approach included the use of a professional photographer, text writer, staging advice, and a video tour on the listing site. All were done extremely well. The open houses and brokers open were executed well. Good feedback and follow up given.

    I think the key differentiator is your communicative skills and using the great experience in this business to our advantage. We were extremely pleased with your availability to answer our calls, provide feedback, and follow up. When needed you gave us seasoned advice. You were honest in all of your assessments and always used your vast experience to articulate issues and a positive resolution.

    In closing, we just want to thank you for all your work in the selling of our property, maintaining a positive outlook all the time, and sound advice.

    Please feel free to share this letter with others as we would be happy to give them a strong recommendation on Lex Lianos/Weichert Realty.

  • Working with Lex was wonderful. I have bought and sold four homes with different agents and this was far and away the best experience.

    Working with Lex was wonderful. I have bought and sold four homes with different agents and this was far and away the best experience. Although my husband and I knew we wanted to move, we were in no rush – we wanted to wait for the right house. We were up front with Lex about our intentions and he was perfectly accepting. At the time, I’m not sure he knew what he was in for. Despite showing us many homes Lex never pushed us to move quicker than we were comfortable.

    Lex showed us our first house in July of 2011. After off and on looking, he continued to work with us for over a year until we finally settled on a home in September 2012. Despite our high demands and specific criteria, Lex was always patient, thorough and responsive not to mention incredibly positive through the purchase or our new home and sale of our existing one.

    Unlike other agents I’ve worked with in the past, there was no bait-and-switch. Lex was there for every appointment in person, never sending an associate or assistant. He has an attention to detail that you don’t find in many other professionals in this area of service and I was able to rest easy that he was paying attention to the details when I couldn’t. He certainly goes the extra mile to provide quality service to his clients in all arenas from routine listing emails, professional photo shoots, top notch brochures and listing materials, use of a staging professional, and more.

    Without a doubt, I will work with Lex again, (if he’ll have us!) and I’ll recommend him to others without hesitation.


  • He is enthusiastic, generous with his time, patient, and enormously hard working. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    This is an enthusiastic letter of endorsement for Lex Liamos who, in the Spring of 2010, helped my wife and me with the purchase of our first home in Fairfax, Virginia.

    My wife and I had lived in the Fairfax-area for just under a year when we made the decision to purchase a house; we found Lex after an extensive search of realtors and real estate agencies in the area — he came highly recommended. As this was our first home, we knew very little about the process, outside of what friends and family had told us. We weren’t certain what kind of home we could afford, where and how we would obtain the mortgage, or if the time was even right for us to try to buy. With a single phone conversation, however, Lex had us on track. He directed us to a colleague at Weichert Financial, who helped us with the mortgage pre-approval, and by early March we were looking for a home.

    Two things come immediately to mind about our experience working with Lex: first, how knowledgeable he is about the real estate market and the complexities of purchasing and ownership; and second, how patient and considerate he is. These are qualities that not only instilled confidence in us that when we found a home, the process of moving forward on it would be a smooth one, but also stripped away our first-time-buyer insecurities.

    Remarkably, we needed only to see four properties before Lex took us to the house that we knew we had to have. It’s a credit to his ability to heat the kinds of things we wanted in a house and apply that to his knowledge of the market in this area that we were able to find a home so quickly. Through every step of the process, from advice about where to enter with our bid to scheduling the home inspection, making certain every piece of paperwork was filed correctly, and closing on the sale, Lex made certain everything went smoothly. He advocated for us and kept us informed of everything that was happening. Buying a home, especially a first home, can be as stressful as it is exciting; we feel very fortunate that our experience was such a good one and we credit this to the excellent work that Lex Lianos did for us. He is enthusiastic, generous with his time, patient, and enormously hard working. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    It is my hope that this letter with help both you and him. We are so thankful for what Lex did for us and for the professionalism and kindness he embodies.

    May your search be as enjoyable as ours.

  • You are an incredibly-talented real estate agent, and we felt lucky to have you on our side of the closing table.

    We can’t thank you enough for helping us with the purchase of our new home. You are an incredibly-talented real estate agent, and we felt lucky to have you on our side of the closing table. You have a superb understanding of the Northern Virginia real estate market.

    We are truly grateful for the effort you made to help us find the perfect house, often driving miles across town on short notice to show us newly-listed properties. You always came prepared with useful information about the home, the neighborhood and the community. You have a keen eye for detail, and we appreciate the times when you identified potential problems with some of the properties we visited.

    We also appreciate the hard-work you put into the bidding and closing process. You responded thoroughly and candidly to our questions and did an excellent job of putting together our offer packages. You listened carefully during our conversations, and were exemplary in your willingness to advocate our views during the negotiations. The inspectors, mortgage professionals and builders you recommended were equally as professional. Now that renovations are complete, we look forward to showing you the beautiful space you helped us find.

    You have made us happy homeowners. We have encouraged our friends and family to consider using Lex Lianos when purchasing a home.
