About Me
Tom Millar

I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why The Lighthouse Team is dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of our clients. We take great pride in the relationships we build and always work relentlessly on the client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.

Military Background

My wife, Paula, and family and I moved to the Northern Virginia area when I was stationed here in late 1995 in the Air Force. After another 10 years and two back-to-back military assignments, I completed a satisfying career in the United States Air Force retiring with 20 years of service as a Major and Chief Systems Engineer for a large Defense communications organization in the area.

Choosing Real Estate

Having completed a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Systems Engineering at Arizona State University and a Masters in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, I was well poised to continue on as a Defense contractor…but there was something missing. I felt God was leading me to something different where I could help people in more tangible ways. Real estate seemed to be a natural transition, and I began my real estate career in early 2004.

Now, after 11 years and closing on more than 300 transactions, I have the experience base you need to help you with a listing or a purchase in the Northern Virginia area. Additionally, the CENTURY 21 New Millennium offices have ranked #1 in the World within the CENTURY 21 brand for the fourth year in a row, an accomplishment we are extremely proud of!

Area Expertise

I am very familiar with the Fairfax, Prince William, and Loudoun county areas, having helped buyers and sellers in all three counties. Living in Prince William county and having an office in Fairfax county enhances my exposure to and ability to serve these areas.

Specialties

I am certified by CARTUS, the largest relocation company in the world, as a relocation sales and marketing specialist which means I have the skills, training, and experience to list homes for departing relocation employees and assist with home-finding for arriving relocation employees. Of course, I apply those same skill sets to my local clients for the best service possible. I have experience in new home sales, single-family homes, townhomes, and condo listings and sales and can help you with your needs, large or small. I particularly enjoy working with first-time buyers, helping you through what seems like an overwhelming web of processes and forms!

Relocation

Having moved 13 times in my military career, I know the challenges associated with such a tumultuous time. So if you are moving from or to an area outside the Northern Virginia area, take the guesswork out of finding an agent! You want an agent with a proven track record, and I can ensure you are assigned a trained, experienced and qualified agent in your home area if you’re selling before moving here or in your new home area if you’re moving somewhere else from here.

National Referral System

Call me or send me your contact information, and I’ll help you find the right agent in our national and international Friends and Family network referral program.

Family/Community

My wonderful wife and I have four children, and we’re involved with our local church and volunteer time managing the youth and other vital areas of the church.

Testimonials

Our daughter talked very highly of Tom, so we trusted her judgement. Tom turned out to be a prefect fit. We could not h ave asked for or found a better agent. He was a huge factor in getting us what we wanted, and we were very specific with our needs. The whole experience could not have been easier. Nor could it have been more enjoyable, thanks to Tom.

John and Linda Blind, moving from NY to VA.
Tom Millar stopped by our house about a year before we were ready to sell. He had done a thorough work-up of the listin gs in the area that he presented in a booklet for us to look through. He sent additional information during the following months and we were so impressed, we called Tom when we were ready to sell. We didn't even consider another realtor. Tom was such a great agent! We had lived in this home for 30 years, so we were a little apprehensive about the entire process. Tom ensured that all of our concerns were addressed, he answered our calls immediately and kept us informed as to the status of things during the entire process, making us feel very much at ease! He is just the best! We are very grateful for his help! The entire process was so easy!

Elaine Klossner, Manassas, VA
Recommended by a friend of ours and great choice and recommendation. Tom was very observant and paid close attention t o our desires and wants and help direct us to properties that would help us confirm or deny our desires so we could make very well informed decision. Tom was able to answer all of our questions. He anticipated things and questions so to alleviate the stress and process for us. Even when I was very particular about certain things Tom assured me things would be handled promptly and professionally. Everyone was great. Mitzie was phenomenal with regards with the mortgage process and the closing items needed. She was a Rock Starr! What a great team to work with. Very professional and proactive group who really went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. Have already recommended to friends.

Tom made selling and buying a home fun! Even when we had many difficulties with the buyer and sellers, Tom guided us in making sure we had everything completed to finalize the properties. He as able to make difficulties in the process positive, which put things at ease for us. Thanks so much Tom!

Brad Birkhimer, Nokesville
Tom was a wonderful agent as we were buying our new home. We had a tough situation with the house we were selling out of state. While things were uncertain for a time, Tom worked with us to identify options. He communicated with our selling agent, and the agent for the home we were buying, until we came to resolution. He was very professional and we would definitely recommend him to others!

Tom was outstanding throughout the process, especially at the end when we had left the state and we had to rely on him t o assist us with unexpected last minute issues to ensure we were able to close. A great experience overall! Thank you!

Tim & Sonja Harrell, Thomasville, GA.
Thomas Millar is the type of agent we wanted. He listened to what we thought the property was worth and even suggested w e list it a little higher. Great idea. We were able to sell it for more than we expected. He has ample experience and a good idea of property is selling for. Would definitely recommend him.

Tom, Cate and I really cannot thank you enough for successfully navigating the sale of our home in a short window. You did everything we asked and things even we did not ask--your effort was exceptional. Be well,
Review by
Jesse and Cate, Georgetown, Ma
Tom was great to work with throughout the entire home buying process. As a first time home buyer I did not know the ans wers to a lot of questions I had and wasn't even sure which questions to ask. Tom was very helpful in letting me know what to expect as a first time buyer. He was always eager to answer any of my concerns or questions and would make himself available at all hours. I would recommend Tom to any of my friends and family for their future home buying experience.

Stephen, Falls Church
We had selected another agent before going with Tom. That was a mistake. The prior agent did nothing to help us sell t he property. Tom came in, gave us his opinions and thoughts. Really wish we had selected Tom the first time.
Review by
Patrick Daly, Centreville Virginia
Outstanding results. Sold my house in a time of low buyer volume and in the worst time of year.
Review by
Richard Martinez, Linden, Virginia
I had to back out of a deal post-inspection and Tom handled it like a pro, assuring me it was OK and that he wanted me f eel good about my investment more than he wanted to make a sale. I know it's still disappointing from a sales perspective but he never let it show. We ended up finding the right property for me and I was much more confident in that purchase.

Coming back to the VA area, we knew that the market would be challenging, so we asked a friend for a referral. She immed iately suggested Tom, and we contacted him to go over our ideas. Since my wife and I work in opposite locations, Tom was outstanding in ensuring we understood traffic patterns that could affect our commute, as well as understanding the pros and cons of each neighborhood/community. After going back and forth for three months, we honed in on two homes which we thought would fit our needs perfectly. As far as the homes, one needed some updating, the other was move in ready. Tom highlighted to me that while both homes seemed the same, and on the surface the move in ready one seemed perfect, based on his understanding of our family, pets, etc, the other home would be a better choice, even if it meant spending a little time updating it. He was absolutely correct...after the purchase we spent the following weeks getting our home up to specs, and we are absolutely in love with it. Tom became a trusted agent throughout the process, and we would definitely refer him to our friends and family.

Joe and Liam Estrada
Tom Millar was a consummate professional throughout and even identified some mistakes the closing agent made. He had a sound plan for making the property competitive and quickly held an open house which resulted in two offers and ultimately the timely sale of the property. We relied on his expertise and trusted in his judgement at each step.

Tom is an excellent agent. He is considerate, patient, knowledgeable, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to sale their home in a timely matter.

Throughout our home purchasing experience Thomas Millar was the best! He provided the excellence, professionalism, guid ance, understanding and patience that we needed to purchase a great home. We are very satisfied with our new home and the service that we received from Thomas Millar.
Review by
Ray and Dana Robertson, Gainesville
Tom was excellent! Always willing to follow our lead and seemed to have our best interests at heart. He was extremely pa tient with us, never seemed frustrated, took our concerns to heart, and always tried to accommodate our schedules for showings. He went above and beyond, particularly from negotiation through closing. I am in sales and for that reason, I'm very cynical of other sales people. However, I feel Tom is very trustworthy in addition to being great at his job. It's a rarity in the industry and I'm sure his referral business keeps him busy (I was referred by another happy client). I highly recommend using Tom for purchase or sale of your home or investment property.

Jen, Gainesville, VA
Tom was pretty much assigned to us on the first day that we visited the C21NM office. After asking the appropriate quest ions regarding his experience and clarifying what we were looking for in both the purchase of a new home and the sale of our current home we felt very comfortable with Tom. Turns out it was a great pairing... good dynamics from the beginning. Top notch representative... would recommend his services to anyone looking to sell/purchase a home. Tom was pretty savvy regarding the purchase strategy for initiating the contract for our new home as well as developing the sales strategy for the home we were marketing. He was also extremely patient and helpful in researching and arranging showings for potential properties that met our requirements for a new home. Once the decision to initiate an offer was made, he helped us to negotiate terms for purchase that were advantageous for both us and the sellers. The resources he had available and applied to market the sale of our home were outstanding. No doubt that his experience and know-how were well worth the investment for his services. All of the C21NM staff were extremely helpful and professional. Mitzie Priuss was simply outstanding both personally and professionally. We are absolutely confident that Mitzie applied her expertise to insure that we got the very best terms available for the mortgage on our new home. Already making recommendations within the community. Although it took a bit longer to sell our home than expected, the final result met all of our expectations. I have recommended C21NM and Tom Millar to two adjoining neighbors who have indicated that they are contemplating the sale of their homes within the next year.

After talking with them on the phone, I felt confident that the would be a great team and would put my needs first.
Review by
Walker Abel, Gainesville, Va.
Tom Millar did an excellent job of highlighting the pros and cons of each property we viewed based on the home prioritie s we had listed. He filtered the listings to avoid spending time on properties that did not fulfill our desires and was very flexible in arranging home viewings to meet our schedule. Across the board a great dynamic with Tom. Never made us feel uncomfortable in any way, answered some pretty complex questions with the necessary detail to provide us with the information we needed to make significant decisions. If he didn't have the answer, he got it for us quickly and did a great job of follow-up when necessary.
Review by
Tom Apollonio, Centreville
Tom Millar assisted us in selling our previous home by providing a thorough assessment of our home, helping us set a fai r and realistic asking price, and assisting us in preparing the home for sale. We received multiple offers within a few days after placing the house on the market as a result of Tom's efforts and preparation. Tom also assisted us in finding and buying our current home. He understood what we wanted in a new home and kept us informed as homes came on the market. His advice was invaluable in helping us determine a fair offer and guiding us through the appraisal, inspection and closing process. We have recommended Tom to a few of our friends and would encourage anyone seeking the services of a real estate agent to speak with him. You will find him to be very knowledgeable, professional and willing to serve you.

Dean and Stephanie, Gainesville, Va
Tom Millar was outstanding! He was the only agent that responded to me from multiple property inquiries. We could not ha ve asked for a better, more knowledgeable, more accommodating agent. Tom went over and beyond to help us find our home and we cannot thank him enough. His outstanding abilitites were surely appreciated and we will use him again if the need arises in the future. We will definitely share his name with other people too. We thank you for having such a great agent, but also someone we now consider a friend. Tom was very patient, understanding, knowledeable, timely, respectful, friendly, etc. Everything listed above. He went over and beyond to help us. He always responded very timely and answered ALL of our questions. He was awesome! If this is meant for the mortgage broker, we dealt with Mitzi Preuss and we loved her too. She also went over and beyond to help us. Mitzi and Tom are a great pair to work with. This home purchase was by far the best, smoothest, easiest home purchase we have experienced. We would definitely recommend Century 21 New Millennium, Tom Millar and Mitzi Preuss over and over !!! We cannot thank you enough for your help in making our move to this beautiful area so wonderful! It was a great experience! Thank you Tom!
