When you are talking about the 22202 zip code and want to know about public transportation, it is important to understand there is a lot more GREAT options besides the metro. Crystal City and Pentagon City are really flourishing with high speed buses coming into them, the trolley line plans and the circular bus. The neighborhoods with single family homes that support this zip code are Aurora Highlands, Arlington Ridge, Addison Heights, Oakcrest and Aurora Hills. ... more

Hello Matt,

I would have to agree with Jeff Lubell, finding a realtor who is an expert in all of those jurisdictions will be a challenge. A realtor can sell anywhere in the state of Virginia, and get the job done, but finding someone who "really" knows all these areas will be the hard part.

I am also a native and grew up inside the beltway and have sold homes out in Loudon Co, as well as Madison Co, and can share that there is a world of difference between selling a home there and selling one in Arlington.

In reading your posts, my thought would be to suggest that your wife and you narrow your search a little more and then zone in on an agent who really sepecializes in the area you seek. Aoso, I forget the exact figure from The National Association of Realtors, but it is something like 87% of buyers and sellers find their realtor thru the recommendation of a friend. Good luck in your search, and if you find your focus is Arlington I would be happy to help.

If you are asking because you are thinking of walking, it is too far, but I would recommend using Google Maps or Bing to check exact distances of places you are considering. Rosslyn is connected via the metro and buses run thru Rosslyn station. Columbia Pike in zip code 22204 is also a major bus route, so I would check bus schedules. 22204 is located south of Route 50, while Rosslyn is north of 50.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

If you see the property in question on Trulia, you should also see a brokerage company / listing agent...
Contact that listing agent to make sure the property is placed in the right spot on the Map, that listing agent, can reposition the property on the map correctly...
