Julian Thomas, Julian Thomas Photos
Julian was born in Pensacola, Florida then moved to northern Virginia where he has resided for the past 20 years. He started studying mechanical engineering, but quickly realized that school wouldn’t feed his creativity. Julian bought his first camera a few years ago and soon after made the leap from day job to freelance photographer and—much to his surprise—landed on his feet. His work ranges from portraits to real estate and everything in between, but one thing that remains consistent is his creativity. In between collaborating with commercial clients, working in the studio, and shooting weddings on the weekends you can find him capturing homes all over the DMV for Koki’s team. His passion for real estate stems from years of spending Sundays going to brunch and touring open houses with his father every weekend. Nowadays he spends his time exploring the four corners of DC with his camera—there’s a good chance that he’ll have it in his hand when you meet him! 

Laura Zuckerman, Wowed! Home Staging
Laura Zuckerman is a native Washingtonian.   She has a passion for real estate and design and enjoys helping sellers during the sometimes daunting process of getting their homes ready for sale.  Laura graduated in 1996 from Georgetown Law School and worked in a law firm and then as a part owner of a consulting firm, which was later sold to a public company.  In 2006, Laura decided to merge her skills serving clients with her love of all things real estate.  She went on to study Interior Design and worked for a DC designer.  Her staging certification is from Home Staging Resource (HSR), the first accredited staging training program in the country. She is a Best of Houzz winner in 2015, 2016 and 2017.  In her free time, you’ll find Laura reading fiction, in her garden or running around with her two young boys.
