About The Lighthouse Team
The Lighthouse Team

Your Beacon to the American Dream

Lighthouse Team Lead Tom Millar and his wife Paula moved to the Northern Virginia area with their four children when he was stationed there in late 1995 with the Air Force. After another 10 years and two back-to-back military assignments, he 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 engineering degrees at Arizona State University and Stanford University, Tom was well poised to continue on as a Defense contractor…but there was something missing. He felt God was leading him to something different where he could help people in more tangible ways. Real Estate seemed to be a natural transition, and he began his Real Estate career in early 2004.

Now, after 12 years and closing on over 330 transactions, Tom and The Lighthouse Team has the experience base you need to help you with a listing or a purchase in the Northern Virginia area.

Ranked the #17 top producer in the Mid-Atlantic, Tom leads the Lighthouse Team consisting of Bill DePugh (USAF Retired military), Rebecca Ferguson, Kelsi Andrade, Maggie Angell, and Sara Rudolph.

Area Expertise

Lighthouse Team Real Estate is very familiar with the Fairfax, Prince William, and Loudoun county areas, having helped hundreds of buyers and sellers in all three counties.

Duncan was very helpful in the process of purchasing our home. He was quick to communicate our queries to the Seller's r epresentation and get the answers we had. Duncan was also very knowledgeable about the entire home buying process, making it easier for us to concentrate on the minutia of the transaction

Charles Miller, Fredericksburg
We were renting before and I met Duncan there. The way he explained the process was amazing and encouraging, being the r eason I started thinking of buying a house. The way all the above are selected excellent isn’t just to finish up the survey, it is because Mr.Ferguson deserves all the 5 stars. He was very professional, productive and very much aware of the market along with the knowledge about the whole process. The availability and time management of Mr. Ferguson was very impressive. I was in communication with Jennifer Beall during the process, she very helpful and informative. She even helped with the utility billing. Thank you Jennifer.

We met Duncan Ferguson at an open house and instantly felt at ease with his knowledge and friendliness. Being first time home buyers, Duncan answered all of our questions and took the time to educate us on the entire process. We ended up buying a new build townhouse and while going through the inspections, he didn't miss a single detail! We unfortunately ran into some structural issues with our new build, but Duncan dropped what he was doing and immediately went onsite and handled the issues. We thought the entire process was going to be stressful and hard, but he made everything incredibly easy. You can see that Duncan is passionate about what he does and goes above and beyond for his clients. We can't honestly think of anything he could have done to make this experience any better!

Bill is an open and honest real estate agent. He truly wants to know what the customers needs are and ensure he is find ing them a home they will be happy with, not just settle for. The market was right and the timing was perfect, Bill helped negotiate the deal and our family was able to secure our home in the midst of a bidding war. Bill shows his prowess and expertise when needed, and he understands how to work the current market.

Bill worked through all issues in a prompt and timely manner. He went above and beyond our expectations of a realtor. I would highly recommend his services to anyone I know who is even thinking about buying or selling a home. Bill is always professional and he knows his business. He never skipped a beat and knew how to work with the current market.

I could not say enough of how Bill helped us through the entire process. Bill was with us from the very beginning. He walked many open fields with me so that we could find land to build our new home. He helped us identify and select builders and through his network found us the very best custom builder for our new dream home. When the house was finished, Bill worked extremely hard to get our current home sold. SOLD THE VERY FIRST DAY!! He also negotiated a post-settlement occupancy agreement so that we could stay for a couple weeks after the sale until our new home was completely finished. He lined up all the inspections, coordinate a stager for the house to show well, and walked us through the whole process so that there were no surprises. We even recommended him to our very best friends who are also now using him to help them find a new home.

We had a terrible experience with another company so we were guarded going forward. Once we met Kelsi, our walls were lo wered and we were able to find an ally in the process.

Duncan was instrumental in helping us find our home. He knew our requirements and negotiated strongly to get us the best deal, and he stayed right with us all the way to closing. Great job Duncan!

Don LeClaire, Manassas
One day, we were talking about buying a house. It was something that we were thinking about for almost a year. That day, somebody knocked at our door. This elegant gentleman was in front of me asking if we were interested in buying a house. That man was Duncan. He introduced himself, and my husband and I told him that we were talking about buying a house a couple of minutes ago. Duncan gave us all the information we were looking for. Since that day until the day of our closing, he was very nice, respectful and supportive. I strongly recommend Duncan Ferguson as your realtor. He has all the necessary skills that a great realtor should have.
Review by
The Escorcia's, Warrenton, Virginia
As mentioned, Bill's biggest attributes were: - Professionalism - Knowledgeable - Approachable - Trustworthy/Honest Bill Depugh exemplified what we feel an agent should be. Obviously, purchasing or buying a home is a huge financial commitment, but it is also a really emotional one for a family. Bill was sensitive to both aspects and made sure that my family and I were comfortable in our decisions throughout the whole process. We would gladly recommend him to our friends and family.

We met Duncan at an open house at the beginning of our home search. His friendly, knowledgeable manner and prompt follow -up led us to contact him as part of our search for a real estate agent. In the first week that we worked with him, Duncan was great about letting us define our home search while being supportive and accessible. He also provided us with a heads-up on a townhouse (which would eventually become our home!) about to hit the market in our area. We were reluctant to make an offer since we had just barely started our home search and the property already had competitive offers. Duncan provided us with several suggestions that made our offer stand out to the seller. Ultimately, we were able to out-maneuver 8 other offers despite having a far less flexible bargaining position! Our offer was accepted because of the Duncan's diligence, craft, and knowledge. We are so grateful to have worked with Duncan and Century 21 New Millennium, and we will recommend him to anyone searching for a home without reservation.

My wife and I started renting an apartment in the beginning of 2017, and paying rent did not sit well with me. (I m ean, does throwing money sit well with anyone?). However, purchasing a condo for ourselves seemed outside of our financial ability; or so we thought. I reached out to Duncan about our plight, and we started looking at what was available and started going through the loan pre-qualification process. The entire process was laid out plainly, and was easy to follow. He managed to find us a recently renovated condo that was close to my work that we liked, and also negotiated the closing costs to below $1,000, which was incredibly helpful. We ended up purchasing this improved condo for roughly the same monthly cost we were already paying in rent previously. Duncan's ability to walk us through the process helped greatly in managing stress in what is one of the most stress-inducing processes out there, and his negotiations made the purchase financially viable. We moved in this weekend, and our loving our new home. Thanks Duncan!

I was really looking for a broker that I could trust. Having worked closely in the past with Bill during previous emplo yment, I new we could trust that he was going to look out for our interests. Bill's work ethic was excellent in finding both our property to build and helping us select the best builder. He stayed involved through every step and aggressively worked through every possible barrier so that we could get started building our next home. We are definitely having Bill sell our current home once the new home is completed. We are confident that he will provide excellent service then as well.

Tom Milar was also great to work with. He helped us with the contract negotiations, and was there at the closing too.
Review by
Christina Kaczmarczyk, Oakton & Centreville, VA
I've known Bill for many years in a personal capacity, and chose him as my realtor based on the recommendations from a c ouple of other people who have used him for recent home purchases. I was not disappointed! From being accessible at seemingly all hours of the day and night, to gracefully handling the negotiations, to being extremely knowledgeable during all of the inspections and closing procedures, Bill really proved himself to be head and shoulders above any realtor that I've used in the past. I will be highly recommending his services to friends and family, and he will be my first call for any future real estate needs.

Bill DePugh was recommended to me by Candace Corona-Pentz. My boyfriend had purchased a home in southern MD with Candace as his realtor. We were so happy to be working with her and since she couldn't be my broker in VA, was able to recommend Bill DePugh. Bill was fabulous to work with from the very start. He made sure to get in touch with me right away to find out what I was looking for and wanted to make sure we worked to my schedule. Bill is absolutely amazing. He was very proactive in explaining things - most of the time he answered my questions before I even had them. When I did have questions, he made sure he got back to me right away with the answers, and was absolutely amazing at finding out information and details that others might not have considered important. Bill was with me every step of the way, through pre-drywall walkthroughs, inspections, pre-closing, and closing as well. He was with me every step of the way through getting contract/earnest money to the seller, and was kind and courteous enough to make sure that documents and payment got to where they needed to be even when my schedule was severely restrictive. He made sure that I had copies of all the documentation, explained absolutely everything in wonderful detail, and was amazingly knowledgeable about the area of purchase, other local communities, and in particular other lenders and insurance agencies that were able to provide extremely competitive rates to my best advantage. He made sure to present me with all possible options and was able to advise me when I encountered information and choices I was not well-versed in. He made sure that the seller followed through on all promised incentives. It was realy awesome to know he had my back and that he had so much knowledge about the process and choices. Bill is simply the absolute best. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. He was not only extremely knowledgeable, but very helpful and always answered any questions I had. In fact, he anticipated many of my questions! He was always accessible, easy to reach via phone or text or email, and utterly, wonderfully, completely trustworthy. I never doubted once that he had my back and was there to represent MY interests and to make sure I made the right decisions. He always responded rapidly to any questions I had, and even chased down information and details when my schedule left me no time to do so. He not only assisted in the purchase of the new home, but also assisted with my departure from my rental, and was able to advise me on how to proceed with changes I wanted to make before move-in. He was patient, understanding, and was so so helpful and friendly, he turned what is normally a stressful experience into a virtual walk in the park. On top of that, the fact that he's completely approachable and respectful has gained the instant approval and delight of everyone who knew of my purchase and move. He is, quite simply, the absolute best. I can't praise Bil enough! He is the absolute best. So courteous, kind, and professional. He's amazingly knowledgeable, and anticipated my questions before I had them. He turned what is normally a stressful process into something that was enjoyable and exciting. Bill deserves all the kudos and praise for this purchase; he made it all so easy and even stepped in on my behalf when my schedule restricted my availability. He is the greatest, the absolute best! I worked only with Bill, but he was all I needed. He is the absolute best!

Bill is an amazing agent with excellent knowledge and skills that I truly trust. He explains every single step of the ho me buying process and his ability to negotiate is top notch. I had a very smooth closing, with no surprises, contrary to everything I have heard regarding the settlement process. He was always reachable any time of day through closing and continues to support any question I may have in regards to real estate and home maintenance. Thank you Bill, I really appreciate your commitment. I highly recommend hiring Bill to be your realtor and I will refer him to all my family, friends and co-workers.

I was thrilled with Kelsi Andrade's handling of listing and marketing our home in Manassas! Kelsi gave us excellent p ointers and suggestions for any issues needing to be addressed prior to putting our home up for sale and followed up with guidance throughout the entire process. Kelsi helped us navigate all the necessary inspections as well as negotiations with the buyers agent, scheduled open houses and did everything she could to get us the best price for our home. She also referred us to an excellent realtor in South Carolina in the area we were moving to. Kelsi, along with the back-up and experience of the Lighthouse Team and Tom Millar helped to make the process of selling our home as easy as possible and I would highly recommend her!

Tom & Lisa League, Luray VA
Bill you are an exemplary realtor. In addition to being an expert in your field you took the time to listen to what we w abted. You respected our wishes and did your best to show them the types of property we were looking for. Even more importantly you offered your insight without overstepping boundaries. Thank you for being so receptive to our needs, answering all our questions, and encouraging us through this sometimes difficult process.
Review by
Katherine Ensley Fairfax, VA
Bill was excellent in every manner, we could not have asked for a better representative for our property. Having lived i n the area for 30+ years his personal knowledge and experience is invaluable. Bill's network is expansive and met our every need in ensuring our property was ready for the market and later any inspection findings were corrected in a timely manner. His professionalism is next to none and his ease of communication ensured we felt confident in every step of the sale process. Having Bill as our agent was a blessing as we were able to focus on our family, our move and every other situation going on at the same time as the sale of our home. His advice ensured we received the best deal and were under contract in a very short period of time (11 days).

Mr. Depugh was very well spoken and very knowledgeable in the areas I was interested in purchasing a home in. I was very impressed by the amount of time he was willing to give to me and my family while we searched for our new home. I recommended Mr. Depugh to several of my co-workers as well as a few family members.

Emmet Manassas, VA
Bill DePugh is a longtime friend of mine and my husbands and we trust him. He is new in the real estate business but is a very driven and hard-working man and I knew he would do everything in his power to sell my property and get the best value for it. If you are looking for an agent who listens to your needs and works diligently to get them for you, whether it's buying or selling, then Bill DePugh is your man.
