Welcome to Alexandria

Established in 1749 and only 7 miles from Washington DC, Alexandria is an enchanting locale with a plethora of communities. From vibrant metropolitan neighborhoods to tranquil small villages and quiet suburbs – there is something to suit every buyers’ dream. This booming region with a rich history will delight you at every turn. The cobblestone streets of Old Alexandria, founded as a colonial tobacco port on the western banks of the Potomac River, are now brimming with award-winning restaurants, chic boutiques, antique shops, and galleries known for being the best in the DC region. Known as Old Town, it is the third oldest district in the United States and some of the earliest homes in Metro DC are located here. Moving away from Old Town, Alexandria has a vast array of neighborhoods to choose with detached homes, townhouses and condominiums. This eclectic area hosts a variety of cultural events, has over 70 major parks and 30 community centers, numerous historical sites and museums, a burgeoning art scene, and so much more.
