Gomathi Nagaraj

In January 2010, Gomathi Nagaraj started Maple Realty with the intention of using her experience as a homeowner, investor, and business owner to provide the best service possible in the real estate industry. While buying her first home in 1999, Gomathi was very careful, accepting no less than the perfect home for her family. The choice was made after  conducting extensive research on factors affecting home choice, such as schools, amenities, commute, community history, neighborhood feel, etc. In the process, she gained knowledge about home buying, and began to develop an interest in real estate. A few years after buying their first home, Gomathi and her husband, Pals Nagaraj began investing in real estate. Early investments included a town home which they purchased and later sold for a profit. They then did a 1031 exchange to re-invest the profit in more properties.

Gomathi’s personal homeownership and investing experience sparked a real passion for real estate. She found herself reading about current county zoning approval, land development, and other real estate topics, all just for fun.  Gomathi soon decided to turn her passion into a career. It is with this passion and strong commitment to providing outstanding service and value to clients that Maple Realty was started.

Gomathi has a Bachelors degree in Education and a Masters in Science from Bharathiar University  in Coimbatore, India.  Her interests include finance, politics, cooking, and gardening .   She and Mr. Nagaraj have two children in the Fairfax County Public School system.  Their son graduated from Thomas Jefferson and is now in William and Mary. Their daughter is in Woodson high school.
