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. Living in Prince William County and having an office in Fairfax county enhances our exposure to and ability to serve these areas.

Specialties and Experience

Through New Millennium’s relationship with CARTUS, the largest relocation company in the world, Tom is a certified Relocation Sales and Marketing Specialist giving him the skills, training, and experience to assist departing and arriving relocation employees. The Lighthouse Team has experience in new home sales, single-family homes, townhomes, and condo transactions, and particularly enjoys working with and educating first-time buyers.

Testimonials

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,

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.

Bill provided excellent service, was extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled in all aspects of real estate. He was o n top of all matters, proactive, responsive to our questions and concerns, and kept us up to date at all times. This has been the best real estate experience we have ever experienced. We would highly recommend and refer Bill Depugh to all our co-workers, family members and friends without hesitation.

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.

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.

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
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).
Review by
Yomar, Germany
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.

David Morris - Bristow
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
