In the last century, Will Nesbitt was a leading member of a dotcom technology team. After riding the dot-com wave, Will Nesbitt decided to pursue real estate investing. Initially, Will obtained his real estate license as a means to buy and sell real estate at a discount. Soon enough he found that he enjoyed the real estate business enough that he would not be returning to a technology-based vocation.
In late 2006 Will Nesbitt purchased the office of a retiring broker at River Towers in New Alexandria. Without much fanfare or creativity, the new brokerage was named Will Nesbitt Realty LLC. The office of Nesbitt Realty was in a residential condominium in Alexandria and so we nicknamed the office Condo Alexandria, and registered a trade name to do business as Condo Alexandria.
From the location at Condo Alexandria, Will became aware of the needs of condominium owners and the unique challenges of doing business in and around condos. At the same time, Will began building a web-based hub of real estate information to provide buyers, sellers, renters and landlords an easy and user-friendly way to exchange information. With the addition of family members and experienced agents, Will Nesbitt Realty LLC became Nesbitt Realty.
While the Condo Alexandria team still works with condos all over Northern Virginia, Nesbitt Realty turned its focus to the neighborhoods we know and love best: Fort Hunt, Mount Vernon, Franconia, Arlington and Old Town Alexandria. Our office is strategically located at the boundary between Fairfax County and the City of Alexandria. We live, work and play in the same community. We like to think that positions us to serve both the urban and suburban market along the Potomac River better than many of our competitors.
Today Nesbitt Realty and Condo-Alexandria.com have one of the largest Internet footprints of any real estate brokerage in Northern Virginia. Nesbitt Realty leverages that asset to better serve clients across Northern Virginia. And while our technology is big, our brokerage is a family-based business and together with a few very experienced associates we are here to serve you. We deliver integrity driven results that our clients love.
Some companies understand the power of the Internet for real estate sales. Some companies have experienced agents ready to serve you. Nesbitt Realty has both.
Our brokerage couples experience with technology to provide our clients some of the best service in the business. Our goal at Nesbitt Realty is to provide the highest possible service, with the maximum possible competency while adhering the strictest ethical standards. While we believe these are noble goals, we pursue this strategy because we believe (and we have proven) that the Universe and the market financially reward hard work, good works and love of client.
Real Estate for:
Buying? Talk to Realtor.
To assist you with finding the perfect home, you should enlist the services of a reputable Realtor. When you meet with your agent, you will go over how much you are willing to spend, and what type of home you are looking for. You’re agent will know where ideal properties are, and help you find the home that is best for you. Nesbitt Realty is a home-grown, hometown family-run brokerage. We appreciate your business.
Your agent can provide you with a list of potential properties that meet your budget and your features. Once you get the list, you should drive by the homes and check out both the home and the neighborhood. You should consider the appearance and location of the home, safety, access to the freeway, schools nearby, commute time to work, local shopping, and even recreational activities.
Our Realtors charge the buyer nothing and we even rebate a portion of our commission to you the buyer. Talk to us to find out how you can save thousands.
Marketing a Home for Sale
Marketing a home for sale involves several important steps. First, Nesbitt Realty orders professional quality photos of the property from both the exterior and the interior. We also take 3-D imagery and prepare a floor-plan. Nesbitt Realty will create a virtual tour online. The photos and flooplan are used in online and print advertising to make home buyers aware that the property is on the market. Nesbitt Realty handles all the details of arranging showings. Nesbitt Realty also holds open house events to allow potential buyers to view the property without scheduling an appointment. We utilize both print and online advertising, and have one of the largest Internet footprints in the area. Finally, we of course don’t forget to place a sign out front to let passersby know that the property is for sale.
Nesbitt Realty is trusted by local homeowners as well as overseas and out-of-state homeowners. We work for real estate investors, and trusts, but most of our clients are just average people who need us to help them manage their property. Although some of our clients are genuinely wealthy and have us manage multiple properties that have no mortgages. Most of our clients are “mortgage landlords”. A mortgage landlord needs the rental income to pay the mortgage. For many of these homeowners the property that we manage is may be the single largest investment interest in their life.
Many of our clients work in vocations that require them to travel or live elsewhere for extended periods of time. They are members of academia, the political class, foreign service and military.
Although many of our clients are local, our remote homeowners live out of state and across the country. We also manage properties for homeowners who live on the West Coast, in Hawaii and in various locations in Europe. For those home owners, we have established practices to keep in contact as needed.
A few of our landlords live and work in remote and possibly dangerous locations where communication is difficult and spotty. We manage properties for folks working out of Central Asia in and around war zones. We manage properties for landlords that live in Madagascar and Central Africa. Some of our landlords are military folks who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our nation. Some of our clients do research work in remote wilderness locations.
For those landlords that we cannot contact we have established practices and built a trust to keep the properties we manage in production, producing income while keeping expenses to a minimum.
Nesbitt Realty is a mom-and-pop real estate shop!
