A native of Alexandria, VA and graduate of George Washington University, Alyssa has had a professional career in real estate for twenty years and thrives in the dynamic and fast paced environment.
Having been born and raised in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, Alyssa Cannon is one of the few native Washingtonians. This gives her home-grown and local knowledge and familiarity with our Nation’s capital, which is her home town, and insight into its development and history of the region. She has always used this familiarity with and insight into her home town to her advantage in her adult professional career as she sought to help others.
In addition to working with people currently living in the Washington area or seeking to relocate to the region, she also has worked with clients living abroad, whom she must keep informed of current developments in Washington’s residential real estate market. She thrives in the dynamic, quick paced environment and keenly uses her research and negotiating skills to ensure top-notch service to her clients whether they are buying or selling a home.
A large part of what drives Alyssa in her real estate career is her devotion to building a strong community. Alyssa, a homeowner herself who has lived in North Arlington for the past 15 years is a Board Member of her homeowner’s association (Clarendon Park) that oversees a community of 87 townhomes.
She is also a firm believer in being an active participant in building a strong, vibrant community that reflects on the people living in the neighborhood. In the past, she has worked with the Arlington Food Assistance Center by organizing a neighborhood food drive. In addition, she is a strong supporter of the Children’s Star Center in Washington DC. This arts center brings its diverse community together to give underserved children and youth the opportunity to explore and study the visual and performing arts.
Alyssa believes that finding the right home and community for her clients contributes to a stronger community that can last a life time. Whether it be a first time home buyer or a client looking for a new home, they can take comfort in knowing Alyssa is on their side. She will work hard to get them exactly what they are looking for and ensure that they are comfortable and informed throughout the entire process.
