Wealth, Science, Jobs: You Must Be Talking About ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA (or maybe ALEXANDRIA)!

Arlington is a Wealth CenterWealth, Science, and Jobs.

These are most definitely good things to have in your area.


If your area is Arlington, Virginia, you have all three.  Those who live in this county just across the Potomac River from the Nation's Capital already know that it's a great place to reside and it's no surprise that more and more people relocating to the D.C. area choose Arlington to be their home.

Arlington County


Arlington County is the top "wealth center" in the nation! 

According to the story by NBC-4, Arlington topped the rankings, "in part because of its highly-educated population and residents' access to high-paying jobs in law, government and research."  Additionally, 1/3 of all adults in Arlington County hold a graduate degree!

With the National Science Foundation, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Office of Naval Research and several university-related research institutes maintaining their headquarters in Arlington, the study noted that Arlington County holds the highest concentration of scientific research agencies.


Neighboring Alexandria City is no slacker.  Alexandria ranked #4 in the study.

Channel 4 interviewed Alexandria Mayor William Euile who stated that "It bodes very well in terms of the current economic climate Americans are facing throughout this nation that yet in Alexandria, despite those challenges, we find that things aren't really so bad for us," Euille said.

Arlington & Alexandria:
Wealth, Science, and Jobs. 

It's where I have lived, worked, and played

And by the way, I'm not just a REALTOR -- I also have a graduate degree.
