Hi there! Having grown up in Reston and living and working here now I know a lot of people. In fact, there are a few homeowners (past clients) who I can put you in touch with that may have a rental opening up soon. You might want to also consider a short term furnished apt or room in a home until you decide where to commit on a 1-year lease.
For a few years I lived in Connecticut actually! Where in CT are you moving from?
If you would like help becoming acclimated to this area feel free to respond privately at firstname.lastname@example.org. Congrats on your new life ahead!
