Tom & Cindy and Associates at Long & Foster is #1 among all Realtors for the 10th year in a row in our region of Northern Virginia.

This site is a celebration of the area where we live, work and play. The Alexandria, Kingstowne, Springfield and Lorton area is our backyard and we're happy you stopped by. We've amassed a ton of real estate information, helpful links, and a huge library of personally taken photos of the communities and neighborhoods in which we specialize.

On our site, you will find everything from our cutting-edge database of homes for sale to local restaurant and shopping guides. If you're trying to find the perfect neighborhood then check out our community pages. In addition to thousands of pictures there are also descriptions, facts and lists of amenities. Know that we can show you any home for sale listed with any agent or company anywhere in Northern Virginia.

If you are going to sell your home, we've included a good introduction to the marketing we do that has made sellers thrilled with their results and given us recognition as #72 of the top 100 Realtors nationwide by the Wall Street Journal, Lore Magazine and Real Trends. In 2009 we helped 279 families achieve their buying and selling goals.

While we do appreciate national recognition, the rave reviews and gratitude from our past clients is the greatest reward we can receive. Visit our seller testimonials section to see what they have to say and why they continue to recommend our team to their friends and family.

In the military? On our team we have an active Army officer, a former Marine, a retired Air Force officer, and a current Coast Guard spouse.

We understand your challenges and our military resource page has all of the information and guidance you will need to make finding a home near Ft Belvoir and other local bases as easy as possible. If you're PCSing and are unfamiliar with the area then check out our Alexandria, Kingstowne, Lorton and Springfield community pages; you'll feel like you've been living here for years!

If you're in front of one of the properties we have listed for sale give us a call-we can probably come show it to you right then and there. Or, when you get home, come to HelloVirginia.com and simply click on featured listings. Then find the home for sale, click property details and you'll have access to not only all the home facts, but so many photos you'll feel like you've already toured the property! In addition you can sign up to receive our listings right when they hit the market. Or e-mail the home to a friend if you think it's right for them or want them to see the one you like.

Having served hundreds of buyers over the years, we realize you may be in the information gathering phase and not ready to talk to an agent. This is why we have provided our revolutionary home search technology that allows potential buyers to browse the exact same database of Northern Virginia homes for sale that is used by professional real estate agents.

Sometimes buyers can't find the right property from the inventory of currently available homes for sale. We've added a 'Coming Soon' section to let you preview homes that are not yet on the market. Oftentimes we can get our clients in to see the property before it's available to any other agents and buyers on the MLS.

For those of you unfamiliar with the homebuying process, head over to our Buyer's Roadmap, which walks you through the steps to homeownership. Among other things, we also explain the advantages of homeownership, demystify foreclosures and short sales and go over the basics of financing your new home.

If you're ready to get started looking for your dream home then we recommend you speak with one of our highly trained and experienced buyer agents. But don't take our word for it; visit our buyer testimonials page to see what our past clients are saying and why they are constantly sending their friends and family our way to help them purchase a home.

We hope you'll return often to check out our dynamic Blog for breaking real estate news and stats, upcoming local events, featured neighborhoods, and other good info about our neck of the woods.

Every week we also update our list of homes for sale that are being held open on Sunday afternoon. Just go to the buyers section and click on 'Open Houses this Sunday' to see them all. If you're interested in any of them we hope you have time to stop in, check it out and speak with the friendly agent that's hosting the open house.

So take your time, look around and discover all the great things our site has to offer. If you are interested in seeing any homes for sale, or have any questions regarding real estate in the Alexandria, Kingstowne, Springfield or Lorton areas, then we are the team you need to talk to. Call us and a live person will answer the phone 7 days a week during business hours, or e-mail us anytime. We'd love to help you.
