Long & Foster Sells $8.3M Property — Highest Recorded in Fairfax County in 2015

Riverview Manor, a 5-acre riverfront property in McLean, Va., was recently sold by Long & Foster Real Estate, for $8.3 million—the highest recorded sale price in Fairfax County this year, according to the Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, Inc. (MRIS). The property, which offers peace, tranquility, elegance and grandeur, was built in a traditional Georgian style in 2004.

Long & Foster, the largest family-owned residential real estate company and the No. 1 seller of luxury homes in the Mid-Atlantic, represented both the buyers and sellers in the transaction. Marianne Polk and MaryAnn Martell of Long & Foster’s McLean office represented the property’s seller, and Diane Lewis, also of Long & Foster McLean, worked on behalf of the buyers. Lewis, of The Lewis Team at Long & Foster, said the buyers were captivated by the river views and majesty of the home. Riverview Manor, with unparalleled all-season views of the Potomac River, closed on June 26 for $8.3 million.

Lewis was recently named on Washingtonian magazine’s Top Real Estate Agents list and has also been named Best Realtor in Fairfax County by the readers of Sun Gazette Newspapers. Polk’s professionalism and prior career as a lawyer provide valuable negotiating skills, which combined with her personable approach and dedication result in satisfied clients. Martell, a resident of Northern Virginia for 25 years, prides herself on her communication and negotiation skills and ensuring seamless transactions for her clients.

“Over the past 45 years, Long & Foster has become known for the unsurpassed level of service and industry expertise it provides luxury home buyers and sellers,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & Foster Companies. “Thanks to our exclusive affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate throughout much of the Mid-Atlantic region, as well as our partnership with Luxury Portfolio International, Long & Foster brings our clients the very best opportunities to reach qualified buyers and earn international exposure to an elite clientele.”

As an exclusive Christie’s affiliate, Long & Foster provides its sales associates and their clients with the ability to market high-end properties in their areas using the benefits of the Christie’s brand. Luxury homes in Long & Foster’s exclusive Christie’s territories, including the Washington, D.C., metro area, are listed on the Christie’s website and are shared throughout the Christie’s global network of affiliates. Together, Long & Foster and Christie’s ensure buyers and sellers of high-end properties receive the highest and best support possible for all their real estate transactions.
