Our brokerage is headquartered at "Condo Alexandria", an office condo located near the Potomac River in Fairfax County just outside Old Town Alexandria. Our primary business focus is on fine homes and condominiums in Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax County. Nesbitt Realty helps clients like you to buy, sell and rent townhouses, single family residences as well as condominiums in Northern Virginia.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says that since so many details, especially financial ones, are involved in buying and selling a home, using a real estate agent is a good idea because that professional can be a guide throughout the process, making the entire process and experience so much easier.
The key to a successful and positive experience with a real estate transaction is finding the right professional to assist you. While a real estate agent can meet your needs, the services of a Realtor® will suite your needs even better.
What’s the Difference Between a Real Estate Agent and a Realtor?
Of the more than two million people who have earned real estate licenses, only a small percentage of them are Realtors. Realtors, who are members in good standing of the National Association of Realtors, their state association of Realtors, and a local real estate board, are held to high standards of ethical behavior and undergo continuing education annually to remain accredited.
All agents of Nesbitt Realty are Realtors!
What Does a Realtor Do?
Law requires Realtors to:
- perform necessary and customary acts, in good faith and with reasonable care, to assist in the purchase or sale of real estate.
- properly account for money or other property placed in his or her care.
- disclose “adverse material facts” which are, or should be, within the agent’s knowledge.
Realtors can assist buyers in many ways. One such way is keeping buyers informed on all the latest listings, to which Realtors gain access as soon as they are listed on the market. Realtors will also be familiar with all the information you may want regarding the area of your potential home, which may include school quality, community safety, traffic volume and commute time, accessibility to shops and public transportation, and proximity of local parks and recreation. When a buyer is ready to purchase a home, Realtors can help you pre-qualify for a mortgage, weigh the pros and cons of the varying types of mortgages, and walk you through the complicated paperwork involved in real estate transactions.
Realtors can also assist sellers with listing and preparing to sell a home, screening potential buyers, and showing investors properties that suit their investing profiles.
Through efficient organization and coordination of meetings with potential buyers and sellers, Nesbitt Realty can quickly locate the perfect home for you or sell your home in the shortest time possible.
When planning to sell your home, Nesbitt Realty Realtor can help you. Our Realtors are familiar with the real estate market in Northern Virginia and we can determine the best listing price for your property. We know how the home selling process works and are ready to assist you every step of the way. We have access to the MLS (multiple listing service), which is the database that agents use to find homes for sale in the area, and will add your property to it. Working with a Realtor will make the home selling process run smoothly and much simpler than if you attempt to do it on your own.
It is essential that you, as a potential renter, know what you need. Some people are simply looking for a place to eat, sleep, and shower while others are looking for a lifestyle or a space that will accommodate various activities, such as working, entertaining, and hobbies. Think about what the space needs to do for you and make a list of your specific requirements. For example, do you need built-in kitchen appliances? Is a washer and dryer essential or is there a laundry nearby? Do you need easy access to the metro or do you need parking for a car? These are questions that only you may answer. Another important aspect is the all-important budget. What will your money get you and what are you prepared to sacrifice to stay within budget?
Remember when you assess your requirements to differentiate between wants and needs because, unfortunately, you will most likely have to make a compromise somewhere. Your needs are the essentials that you are not able to survive without and your wants are those little extras that make your life more comfortable but are not essential. Take your list of requirements and write your wants and needs in different colors. Then, rank them in order of importance. Remember your needs are always more important than your wants.
