Relocating to Virginia

The Commonwealth of Virginia was founded in 1607 and was named after Elizabeth I of England, the “Virgin Queen.” Virginia has long been nicknamed the Old Dominion or the Ancient Dominion. Northern Virginia has always enjoyed special historical and social significance. Alexandria was a primary port city where clipper ships brought booming trade to Virginia. The state figured prominently in Revolutionary and Civil War history and many notable Americans called the area home, including seven of our nation’s presidents.

Modern Day Opportunities

Today new high technology industrial parks, modern office complexes, multi-million dollar shopping malls and residential developments are the result of a strong economic base, a growing corporate presence, and the relative availability of raw land. The state has an abundance of natural beauty, with the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, thousands of acres of preserved parkland, and pleasant sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Northern Virginia, not only has natural beauty, but also historic, cultural, educational, economic and recreational opportunities. From rolling hills and picturesque farms in the country to modern urban centers, Northern Virginia has it all.
