My name is Helen Manning. I am a relocation specialist. Please let me know if you are looking to purchase or rent a home, and I can send you listings.
Also, please know that In Virginia, the home owner pays all the real estate related fees, so the Realtor that assists you will not require a fee from you, as in Florida (unless you are renting, in which case, which ever property you choose will have an application fee that will range from $50-$100 set by the homeowner's listing company.)
You can get a feel for pricing here by going to http://www.nationalrealty.biz.
You are looking for zipcodes 20191 or 20194 in Reston, if you do not want to be right in the town center. Other nearby cities for you to check are: Sterling (20165), Herndon, Ashburn, Leesburg, Vienna, Great Falls and Oakton. All of these cities are less than 30 minutes from Reston, depending upon where you find a property. Each city here varies, as to amenities and lifestyle, and pricepoint.
Reston, for example, has nature trails, wildlife, many pools and tennis courts, and is next to an urban town center offering public transportation and an abundance of nightlife, and is one of the most affordable cities in Northern Virginia.
Look forward to hearing from you!
