Crystal Gateway’s Most Expensive Condo Sale since Amazon’s Announcement Just Sold for $1.25M

A new real estate record since Amazon’s announcement of HQ2 in Arlington has been set in Crystal Gateway Condominiums. In addition to its great location, the spectacular end-unit penthouse that just sold offers some of the best views in all Northern Virginia.

Located at 1300 Crystal Drive, in the esteemed Crystal Gateway building, the gorgeous two-floor condominium was sold by Jon DeHart of the McLean office of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate for $1.25 million.

“The Amazon affect is truly in effect in Crystal City,” said DeHart. “It is certainly one of our region’s most popular and coveted areas. We’ve seen prices skyrocketing due to low home inventory and super high demand. Both investors and principle residence user’s want to get in on the action and it’s clear that there is more home appreciation to be had in the community.”

This sale represents the highest trade in the Crystal Gateway building since Amazon’s announcement in November 2018,and the highest sale price in the building in the past six years, topping the sale of the late Sen. John McCain’s condo, which sold for $1.2 million in 2017.

This latest sale is just one of many homes in the area that Jon DeHart has sold over the years. A full-time agent since 2004, DeHart has sold more than $250 million in real estate in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. He and his team, Homes From DeHart, are well known for providing a world class level of service to their buyers and sellers.

“I am thrilled that Jon has once again delivered such impressive results for his clients,” said Larry “Boomer” Foster, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Exceptional agents like Jon, as well as our exclusive affiliation with Christie’s and our own preeminent brand, presents the perfect blend to bring our clients the very best opportunities in real estate.”
