Our nation’s capital needs no introduction.  This vibrant community is filled with history, political superstars and a melting pot culture.  The city is split into four quadrants: Southeast, Northeast, Northwest and Southwest.  There are also a number of neighborhoods such as Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, Columbia Heights and Anacostia.   No car, no problem.  There is ample public transportation available throughout Washington DC.  The metro rail and metro bus run a very efficient system.  Bike renting is available for shorter commutes.  Tourists will find a number of alternative means of transportation such as the double decker tour buses and amphibious vehicles.

Homes buyers in DC often seek character.  They don’t want a cookie cutter home.  They like a mix of modern luxury and historic charm.  Other home buyers are impressed with the luxury and amenities found in the modern condominium buildings available throughout town.
