There are real estate company sites such as nesbittrealty.com where you can access the local affiliates and all their listings in Northern Virginia.

The “maps”  “coverage areas” “find your perfect home” “just listed” “featured properties” website allows you to enter in your criteria and will notify you of any updates or new listing you can select to have the emails sent daily or weekly. Nesbitt Realty’s system is state of the art in high tech features when you request information on any of their listings your request goes one stop and then directly to the agent’s phone who listed the home. During normal business hours you should get a return call within minutes with all the up to date information directly from the listing agent.

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

A walk on the waterfront

Fortune Teller at waterfront
Fortune Teller in Old Town

I took a walk on waterfront in Old Town Alexandria VA last night. The temperature was absolutely perfect as was the humidity. There were crowds, but it wasn’t too much. I saw folks rushing to the Nina Dandy and other boats for an evening of cruising. There were several street musicians playing King St. At the pass-thru under the Torpedo Factory, a gentleman was playing the saxophone. And down along the water a street magician was showing his stuff. The balloon men were there creating animals and entertaining the children. A fortune teller was portending the future. A parrot rescue group had a flock of parrots and similar birds which were available for photos.

But then a light misting rain started to fall and the crowds scattered. At first they hid in the Food Court and on the trolley. The musicians were the first to pack, and they packed quickly to ensure their instruments weren’t damaged. The mule drawn carriage pulled off and soon the streets were quiet. We walked around a bit, enjoying the peace and quiet. And then we were gone as well.

Miscellaneous Spring Photos

late winter in Old TownMany people feel that Old Town is the heart of Alexandria VA. As the name implies, Old Town is the oldest part of Alexandria, a port in colonial times. Historic Old Town Alexandria is found along the Potomac, just inside the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and then north toward Reagan National Airport. Old Town is served by the King St. Metro and the King St. trolley. With over 100 restaurants, shops, boutiques, coffee shops, ice cream houses and more, there's always fun to be found in Old Town.

Old Town feels small town, upscale and touristy. For most folks there is a bit of prestige attached to an Old Town address. There are two high rises near the waterfront at the Alexandria House and Port Royal. Some folks call the Torpedo Factory condos the "flagship Old Town" because of their fantastic location.

Old Town Alexandria has many townhouses, row houses and a smaller number single family homes. Click Old Town to search listings of properties in Old Town Alexandria.
