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.

" "When we moved overseas to begin new jobs, Alyssa helped us rent our townhouse very quickly and effectively. She accurately forecast the market for rentals and helped us decide on an appropriate rental rate. She understood our need to find a tenant who would take good care of our house, and she arranged for needed repairs in a very timely and responsive way. She's a real professional whom we trust and regard very highly.""

" "We have known Alyssa for several years, and eventually had the pleasure of enlisting her services as our buyer's agent when purchasing a new home in Falls Church. Not only was Alyssa helpful in ensuring that we got the best price for the property, but she also made sure that all of our concerns were addressed and our questions both asked and answered. Further, her familiarity with the area was a big help in understanding our new community and the surrounding area - shopping, restaurants, transportation, and other features that would make our daily living more comfortable and convenient. We would not hesitate to recommend Alyssa Cannon and Everything Real Estate. Her attention to detail, patience, and professionalism made our experience a very positive one.""

" We were being relocated by my employer, and as such were provided services by a relocation company contracted by my employer.  I had no intention of using the realtors required to conduct a market analysis for the relocation company.  I had a realtor I had used previously, and had done a great job, so my plan was to list our condo with this individual.  After getting in touch with that realtor, their outlook regarding price on our condo was not what I had expected.  I realize people often think they're house was worth more than it really was, but in this case I thought the number was off and underselling the price the condo could bring on the market.  I knew Alyssa was the first realtor assigned by the relocation company to provide a market analysis of our property.  I decided to do some basic research on the internet to gather information about Alyssa's real estate experience, and my interest was piqued by the fact she had an advanced real estate degree and her reviews were very positive, but more importantly, very detailed.  I gathered that her aim was not to sell as many houses as possible every year, but rather to put sincere effort into selling a smaller number of houses each year, while providing great customer service to her clients. I also liked the fact she was a resident of Arlington, and therefore understood the nuances of our particular market.  Then came the real deciding factor.  When Alyssa came over to our condo to conduct the market analysis for the relocation company, our cat seemed to genuinely like her!  Our cat did not like anyone outside of our family, and most of the time barely tolerated us!  Animals are a great judge of people, so when they decide to tell you something, I feel you should listen.  We chose to list the house with Alyssa.  She was very diligent in doing her homework to help us price the condo appropriately, and most importantly was open to our input on price, as opposed to trying to talk us into going with a price we felt was actually a bit too high.  She took the time to gain insight into our past real estate experiences, and therefore understood our expectations as it pertained to this particular transaction.  Through her efforts, we were able to sell the condo for a price that was approximately $11,000 more than the top dollar our previous realtor thought would be the final sales price.  Alyssa was very detail-oriented, compassionate, and diligent and as such provided an excellent sales experience.  We whole-heartedly recommend Alyssa to anyone in the Northern Virginia real estate market, looking to sell or purchase a home!

" Alyssa was the most helpful and professional agent I have ever worked with in my 14 years of military moves. My wife, 2 year old, and I had a very limited window to look at homes across the Northern Virginia area and Alyssa made it happen. We ended up spending over 10 hours searching on a Saturday with some follow-ups on Sunday and found a great 5 bedroom home in a quiet neighborhood where our kids can walk to school. She worked diligently in the search process to find us a home that would fit us, our four kids, two dogs, and two cats in our price range. After finding the home we wanted to make an offer on Alyssa worked to ensure all the inspections needed to be done and contractors could access the home for a planned renovation. She really impressed me in her dealings with both the listing agent and the mortgage company helping us close in just 30 days. We definitely felt that she went to bat for us to ensure the maintenance issues of the house were taken care of including having a general contractor come in and estimate costs to help us get the best price possible. I would recommend Alyssa to family, friends, and any military moving into the area looking for someone to work with that understands the stresses of an out of area move to DC. I know she focuses in the Arlington area, but her knowledge of the area really makes her an expert all around."

" Alyssa was fantastic! She set up alerts for us for several months so that we could monitor what was coming on the market in terms of price and quality. When we were finally ready to look, she was easy to work with on scheduling and never tried to up-sell us. I appreciated her insight and attention to detail during walk-throughs, especially since we are first time home buyers. My husband and I are both super type "A" and have stressful jobs and Alyssa made the process easy and was very responsive. Her laid back and not pushy style was perfect for us, and much appreciated during an already stressful process. I would (and already have) recommended her to friends!"

" Alyssa is a pleasure to work with. She was very understanding of my needs as a seller, and very knowledgeable about the listing, contract and settlement process. She provided straightforward, helpful advice which really helped in making important decisions. Alyssa possesses a unique combination of intelligence, kindness, and confidence that enable her to successfully work with all parties to complete a sale and resolve concerns in a highly professional and mutually satisfactory manner. I recommend Alyssa without hesitation, and would certainly work with her again if we ever decide to move. "

" Alyssa Cannon is an outstanding and tireless agent! She recently helped me purchase a fantastic townhouse in Reston. It was my first purchase since 2005 and I was wary of buying a new home after being stung after the correction of 2008-2009. So Alyssa had to work with a hesitant client who had a true “buyer’s remorse” based on a past experience. But I really wanted to improve my position and find a place for my true satisfaction and happiness. Alyssa saw this in our conversations and she was the perfect person to guide me towards finding a very fantastic purchase! She was a very good listener during this entire process and was interested in all the wants and desires I was considering. Along with her empathy and patience, Alyssa was particularly keen on providing me with all available options and decision points. I liked the fact that she did not push me to a decision based on her benefit; she gave me all the criteria I needed to make the choice on my set of conditions. Alyssa also impressed me with her meticulous attention to detail. She led the way in setting up the usual aspects of the finance, negotiation, sale and closing. But she was also there to anticipate and head off “bumps in the road” that occurred during this process. I am happy to say that her efforts enabled a successful negotiation well under the original listing. This entire process from start to closing took less than two months and it was done to my complete satisfaction! And I am happy to report that she is still helping me with the adjustment to my new property and all post-sale activities. I totally endorse Alyssa for anyone out there who wants a real estate agent who actually listens to her clients, solves problems and provides concierge service. She is an expert on the DMV market and is just simply great at what she does. I know I will hire her again the next time I either buy or sell. She really is the one to count on if you want to find that exceptional home!"

" My husband and I have worked with Alyssa for a few years off an on searching for the perfect first home in Arlington VA. Alyssa was not pushy or overwhelming. She was patient in helping us find exactly what we were looking for. We would recommend her for anyone in the market to purchase a home."
