Loudoun has emerged into the upper echelon of Data Center Clusters in the world. These types of businesses add a commercial tax base that doesn’t overwhelm the infrastructure. The Loudoun Times-Mirror states that according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Loudoun County grew nearly twice the rate of local jurisdictions in Virginia and the United States, when using per capita income. From Top Golf and One Loudoun to the vast number of new restaurants and businesses opening up, Loudoun County is positioning itself very well for the future.

Loudoun County Real Estate also had a very strong year in 2015. 6,485 homes were sold this past year – which is up from the 5,802 sold in 2014. The average sold price for all homes sold in Loudoun County was $487,687.

A reflection of the Brambleton Community over the past year and a look at what the future holds

As 2015 came to a close, we started looking ahead at what the new year of 2016 would bring. In doing so, we reflected on the Brambleton neighborhood and all of its accomplishments during the past 12 months. We were fortunate to speak with Stephanie Lee from the Brambleton Community to get her thoughts on how the year went.

Lee’s top 3 highlights were:

JS Realty Bram Brew Fest 2015-Launching the new Brambleton TV Merchant Series
-Hosting the Inaugural Brambleton BrewFest
-Launching a new mobile-friendly website


She went on to recognize some other great achievements:
