Arlington Real Estate
Originally part of the land surveyed to be included in our nation’s capital, Arlington, VA stands today as a world-class example of a successful residential, business and tourist location. Within less than 26 square miles, the residents and leadership of Arlington have created a place where living and working meet opportunity and success in a small-town atmosphere with the most modern of amenities and services.
Located across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Arlington is known primarily as the location of the Arlington National Cemetery and the Pentagon, but there is much more to Arlington for those who are lucky enough to call it home. The careful planning devoted to the development of Arlington has created an incredible place to live, work and play and has resulted in numerous accolades. Those recognitions include the Environmental Protection Agency’s highest award for “Smart Growth”, based in part on Arlington’s amazing transit and transportation system that includes miles of bike paths.
Arlington has also been recognized by Business Week magazine as the best place in America to live during a recession, based on its diverse business base that employs more than 200,000 in the private and public sectors, a highly-educated workforce and the lowest tax rate in the region contribute to Arlington’s success. Considered the center of the nation’s defense and homeland security’s scientific research industries, Arlington’s stable and growing economy continues to attract the best and brightest to live here.
Arlington’s cultural amenities are many, and continue to represent the diverse population. From amazing museums, theatre and musical performances, fairs and festivals, there is always something wonderful to experience by living in Arlington. Nearly 600 restaurants that provide dishes of almost every ethnicity are available, and many have been featured in the Washington Post’s “Best Bets” for a local dinning experience. Shopping is equally diverse, and small local boutiques are blended with large retail stores and shopping malls throughout Arlington.
Arlington’s public school system is nothing short of incredible. Arlington spends nearly half of its revenue on funding education, and its devotion to the educational needs of children has also resulted in recognition. Newsweek included all four of Arlington’s public high schools in the top 2 percent in America, while Washingtonian magazine named Arlington as a model for teaching students of diverse backgrounds. Once graduated, students in Arlington can continue their education at Marymount University, or the Arlington campus of George Mason University where the School of Law and School of Public Policy and other programs flourish. Additional higher education opportunities include the satellite campuses of Northern Virginia Community College, DeVry University, Strayer University and The Art Institute of Washington.
Real estate in Arlington matches the wonders of the business, education and cultural opportunities it presents. Arlington’s housing options include single family homes, condominiums and townhomes of varying prices and styles. Most residential development is concentrated around local Metro stations, which spread into surrounding established neighborhoods.
