Catch Me Quoted on About Living in Mount Vernon!

Have your heard the Mount Vernon news? recently profiled our neighborhood, and interviewed me, your local neighborhood Realtor, about everything from home styles to happenings in our little corner of Alexandria.

Here's what I had to say:

Sitting on land once occupied by the nation’s founding father, Mount Vernon is known for its history, but has become so much more. “It’s a great neighborhood, such a diverse group of neighbors, just a great place to live,” says Greer Uptegraft, Realtor with Pearson Smith Realty and resident of Mount Vernon herself.

While a drive through Mount Vernon certainly gives the feeling of a well-planned community, with thoughtfully laid out streets under the shade of the trees that arch over the roadways, it avoids the cookie-cutter look of more modern neighborhoods.

“The Mount Vernon area has diverse types of homes – we have split levels, Cape Cods, colonials, it’s not one of those areas where your house looks like everybody else’s,” says Uptegraft. She goes on to point out, “Mount Vernon has historically been the more affordable option in the area, compared to nearby neighborhoods. You get a little more home and a little more yard for your money.”

Smaller homes under 2,000 square feet generally sell for between $500,000 and $650,000, while more room fetches a higher premium, with homes featuring five bedrooms and 3,000 square feet or more of living space easily fetch from $850,000 to $1 million. One-of-a-kind estates with Potomac views sprawling over 4,000 square feet and up garner up to $2 million or more.
