A little feedback from an appreciative client

Wow! I just got this from Jeremy W. This really makes me proud to work with Nesbitt Realty.

Howdy Mr. Nesbitt–

Belle View sign
Entrance to Belle View condominiums

I wanted to take a moment to highlight the exceptional service I received from one of your agents, Ben Fornshell. Within a few hours of emailing Ben, we made an appointment to meet the following day in order to tour Belle Haven. After meeting up at your office, we walked  along the well-kept streets while Ben shared some of his experiences with the community; calmly strolling through a neighborhood on a sunny day while viewing properties is not a typical experience when searching for a new home. After touring several, I stepped into one particular unit and realized I was home. Ben walked me through the particulars before we parted. Later that day, he met with me a second time, well after working hours, to show the unit to my skeptical wife.

She eagerly concurred and five days later, we signed the lease–beating out several other applicants largely because of how well-prepared our package was. Ben’s relaxed and informative approach was a sea-change to the aggressive apartment-pushers usually lurking in real estate and is a great credit to your business and profession.

Further, his stance made it more than clear that he wasn’t merely looking to push someone into a vacant unit: he was assisting a new neighbor.

Please convey my very great appreciation for his hard work and dedication. If you’d like to post this message anywhere online, please feel free; I only ask that you omit my last name for privacy.

Sincerely,

–Jeremy

What is a “Colonial”?

colonial style home
Single Family Home in the colonial style

America’s colonial period encompassed a number of housing types and styles, including For more information about Colonial styles, see Cape Cod, Saltbox, Georgian, and Dutch Colonial. However, when we speak of the Colonial style, we often are referring to a rectangular, symmetrical home with bedrooms on the second floor. The double-hung windows usually have many small, equally sized square panes.

During the late 1800’s and throughout the 20th century, builders borrowed Colonial ideas to create refined Colonial Revival homes with elegant central hallways and elaborate cornices. Unlike the original Colonials, Colonial Revival homes are often sided in white clapboard and trimmed with black or green shutters.

Colonial Home

In Northern Virginia, the colonial-style of home is perhaps the most popular architectural type of single family home.  From Kingstowne to Falls Church from Mclean to Mount Vernon, colonial homes can be found around every corner.

  • Victorian architecture

    typical Victorian home
    Victorian architecture dates from the second half of the 19th century, when America was exploring new approaches to building and design. Advancements in machine technology meant that Victorian-era builders could easily incorporate mass-produced ornamentation such as brackets, spindles, and patterned shingles. The last true Victorians were constructed in the early 1900s, but contemporary builders often…

  • What is a “Regency”?

    Regency

Properties in Alexandria

McLean High Living

Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the city and all it has to offer are several high end neighborhoods that would make many heads spin once or twice.  If you drive around McLean for a while it is obvious that you are in the midst of luxury and luxury at its best.  I can imagine that there are people who move here for a number of reasons but one thing Northern Virginia is known for is housing those that have quite a bit of money to spend.  Of course with the government being responsible for a majority of the jobs here and having several professional sports teams in the area, there are sure to be some big spenders. 

If you are in the market for a luxury home, make sure McLean is on your list of places to check out.  Going down route 7 there is a parade of mansions that ling the long road and it is quite the site to see.  I saw one property that looked like it had several houses attached to it, until I realized it was all one house.  For those of you who may not be in the market, its still a beautiful site to see.  It is simply amazing to view some fo the architecture and design work that has been put into building these homes.

Do you work with properties other than condos?

Because we do business as Condo Alexandria, I’m often asked: do you only work with condos?

The answer is of course: no. Condo Alexandria works with all types of real estate in the Commonwealth of Virginia. But we do fill several niches and have expertise in a few specific areas that might be of interest to you.

Our focus these days is on buyers and landlords. As a buyer’s agent we are well equipped to find the property that suits you needs and make the sale proceed smoothly and quickly. As property manager we take the hassle out of being a landlord. We of course have listings for sale but if the time isn’t right to sell, we’ll let you know and advise you of your best options.

Condo Alexandria also does business as Nesbitt Realty. In the capacity as Nesbitt Realty, we focus on homes and properties near our offices and homes.
