When I'm contacted by someone relocating to Northern Virginia one of the first questions I ask is "where will you be working." It's not that I'm being overly nosey but where you work and the hours you will be working will help me make recommendations of neighborhoods that will be best suited to your commute.
We are fortunate in Northern Virginia to have an extensive public transportation system. Not only do we have the DC Metro system which extends out to a number of areas (and expanding), we have the Virginia Rail Express (VRE) going as far south as Fredericksburg and west to Manassas. When you add in regional buses and slug lines to the options are varied.
With the 3rd worst congested roadways in the nation learning how to use the public transportation system in the Northern Virginia area can save you 80 or more hours a year. When you call and tell me about your relocation plans I'm going to do my best to help you use those hours for activities that might be more enjoyable than staring at the taillights in front of you.
For more information on neighborhoods with nearby public transportation options give Cindy Jones and CJ Realty Group a call at 703-346-2213. Let us help you find the right place to call home when you relocate to Northern Virginia.
