The Coghlan Team

About Us


At The Coghlan Team, we are committed to providing personalized real estate services for all our clients.  
Barbara & Tom are married to each other, work as a team, and have lived in Northern Virginia for over 35 years.  You'll get twice as much attention from us as compared to other agents.
Barbara & Tom have lived in Oakton, Virginia for over 30 of those years, and raised our family in this fast paced and exciting area.  If you already live here, you know how much the area has to offer.  If you are considering moving here, we'd love to show you homes in this beautiful part of the country.

Recently, Derek Lambert has joined The Coghlan Team. While Derek is new to the Real Estate profession, Derek is not new to real estate.  He owns several homes, including a rental unit, and has provided property management advice and support to his clients over several years.

Barbara Coghlan
I have been selling Real Estate in the Northern Virginia area since 1994.  I bring years of experience to guide my clients every step of the way.  No question is too small or incidental, I strive to make all of the transactions I take part in enjoyable and stress free.  I've worked in the past for large Real Estate Brokers, but I prefer the personalized care I can provide to my clients at Realty 2000 l.c. in Reston, Virginia.  I am a graduate of the University of Mary Washington with a degree in Geography.  Contact me directly on cell phone number at 703-216-01714. Or email me at

Tom Coghlan
I have been selling Real Estate in the Northern Virginia area since 2013.  We think buying and selling real estate should be fun, enjoyable, and profitable for our clients.  As a retired federal executive, I bring an analytical background to the team and am good with numbers.  I hold four degrees: a BS in Geology from the University of Maryland, a Masters Degree in Engineering and an MBA from Virginia Tech, and a Ph.D. from George Mason University.  Contact me directly on cell phone number at 703-216-8128.  Or email me at
