Why Live in Reston?

As a realtor & resident of Reston I am so thrilled to be involved in Real Estate, especially now. Their are so many reasons to live here while working, playing or just living...


Reston, Virginia is situated in the heart of the Dulles Corridor—where small and large businesses thrive just minutes from Dulles International Airport and only 20 miles from the nation’s capital.

About one third of Reston’s residents live and work in the community and enjoy a quality of life that is unique and highly valued.


In Reston, variety is the spice of life, especially when it comes to recreation. With 15 outdoor pools, 49 tennis courts (eight of which are clay), four lakes and our 72-acre Walker Nature Education Center sanctuary, summer camps and special events, the selection of ways to play are endless. Consider this your starting place for fun!


Reston has been long recognized both nationally and internationally as one of the best places to live because of its wide array of recreational offerings, variety of housing styles, vast amount of parkland, pedestrian access, and proximity to both Washington DC and Dulles International Airport. Residents also express a sense of community and belonging unlike any other community.
