There are plenty of real estate professionals in the Washington, D.C., area who can sell you a home in nearby Maryland or Virginia. But Gigi Luu, 29, takes a more selective approach. A D.C. native who moved back after pursuing a career in the New York fashion industry, Luu is licensed only to work in the capital—and that’s the way she likes it. Focusing on one market allows her to give clients a more nuanced assessment of a home’s value. She’s able to easily stay on top of what’s happening in specific neighborhoods as she’s watches the city develop and evolve. Sharing the local trends and information will benefit her clients. “I’m not distracted by the other markets,” says Luu. “The clients I work with are D.C. buyers and D.C. sellers.”
