Blend Of History & Charm

Greater Alexandria Area

While Alexandria is rich in history, it is also an area that continues to evolve. There continues to be demographic shifts toward a younger population, as well as rising incomes and extremely low unemployment. This is aided by the proximity to Washington, DC along with lucrative job sectors in technology, finance, medicine, higher education, and government contracting. One of the most obvious signs of the region’s prosperity lies in the luxury real estate landscape, from older traditional homes to a wave of new upscale construction as the housing market tries to keep pace with residential growth.
