Darian Cochran and Amy Cochran began their real estate adventure in 2003 and for seven years the husband and wife team built a strong base of happy clients, lessons learned, and ideas to improve the real estate industry. Vision, dedication, and determination paved the way for
Avenue Realty to open its doors in 2010.


Who we are

Avenue Realty, LLC is a boutique real estate firm serving central and northern Virginia. There is no long term goal of becoming the largest brokerage in Virginia, the United States, or the world. We are purposefully small as we are home to a select group of REALTORs who share our view of professionalism and dedication to both clients and other real estate professionals.

What we believe

  • We believe that a client’s trust is necessary and earned through honest work and transparent processes.
  • We believe that home buying and selling are milestones meant to be celebrated.
  • We believe that professionalism is a must with our clients and other REALTORs.

Why you will love us

You matter to us. We treat all our clients like they are our only client. Our history of success will make you feel confident as you embark upon this huge financial process. But we do not take the “strictly business” approach. For many of our clients this is also a very anxious time. We understand your nervous phone call at 9PM when we are waiting to hear about a counter offer. We will talk you through it.

At Avenue Realty we are sincerely grateful that you have allowed us into your life at this important time. It is our duty and privilege to make this process as efficient and enjoyable as possible. We know you don’t need a salesperson driving you around looking for a house. But, it sure would be nice to have a knowledgeable friend by your side as you find your dream home.

Stasia was very professional and friendly during our home buying experience. She helped us find houses to look at that met our requirements and was able to fill us in on information that we were not familiar with as first time home buyers.

Aaron Hale

Darian was there every step of the way to help us along! Even after we found the right home, Darian helped us through the actual purchase, mortgage application, home inspection, and closing. He always had extremely useful advice, encouragement, and endless knowledge about buying and owning a home.

Lauren & Matt George

Melissa is an outstanding real estate agent and a joy to work with. She took the time to understand our needs in a new home, worked tirelessly running down leads, and has stayed upbeat and positive during a difficult search. We not only consider her as our real estate agent, but a friend. Our experience has been so positive that we absolutely plan on working with Melissa in the future.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Amy. Not only is she knowledgeable and responsive, but she is patient and takes the time to explain the process of selling a home and makes you feel comfortable with what can be a very complicated process. Amy truly made the process easy for us and sold our property in a week.
