Rick Saunders, our Associate Broker, spent many years in Herndon, VA working with VA Power on Elden Street as a Customer Service Representative. Rick says he learned a lot from this experience; met some great people working with Builders and Developers in helping them get power to their new sites and developments.  Rick truly enjoyed his time there, saying it was an excellent platform from which to launch his real estate career. Herndon was founded in the late eighteen hundreds, and is a charming place to live. Similar to the Town of Vienna, VA, the Town of Herndon is a Township inside of Fairfax County. Not every Herndon property is within the Town limits. Properties outside of the Town of Herndon are governed exclusively by Fairfax County. Herndon was named for a naval explorer, William Lewis Herndon, author of “Exploration of the Valley of the Amazon.” He died in 1857, going down with his ship the S.S. Central America. Captain Herndon’s heroics are said to have prevented many of his passengers and crew from drowning. “Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea” by Gary Kinder (1996) tells the remarkable story of the recovery of this ship and its cargo– billions of dollars’ worth of freshly minted gold coins from the San Francisco Mint. Today Herndon has become a thriving community located near the internationally recognized city of Reston, VA, and is located close to the Dulles Airport International. Each year one of the most enjoyable Northern Virginia festivals of the year is the Herndon Festival. It is a great time and reflective of the welcoming spirit of Herndon. Herndon offers its residents a lot to enjoy within the Town. There is the Herndon Community Center a world class public recreational center that offers everything imaginable to stay fit including an indoor heated pool, sauna and spa. For you golf lovers there is the Herndon Centennial Golf Course with more than $1 million in renovations.  Offering you access to superb practice facilities to sharpen your game or the availability of a golf lesson, the Herndon Centennial Golf course is one of the finest public courses in Northern Virginia. Herndon provides you great schools, like Herndon High School, home of the Hornets. There are excellent restaurants and shopping available like the Ice House Café, the Russia House Restaurant and the renowned World Gate Centre.

Commuting now to Washington D.C is accelerated when you access the Dulles Toll Rd and will be even more convenient when the Metrorail Silver Line opens.

Herndon is a thriving 21st Century city while simultaneously maintaining a small town charm and personality. This pleasant reminder of an earlier era is complimented and contrasted by the proximity to and international splendor of the Nation’s Capital.
