Leeway Overlee in Arlington VA

Located in the 22205 zip code and with a population of just over 1,600 residents, Leeway Overlee is an Arlington, VA neighborhood with a close-knit community, active civic associations, and offers the benefits of suburban life while still close to one of the most active urban centers of our nation.

History and Lifestyle

The initial European settlement of this Northern Virginia area was accomplished through land grants issued to English colonists. A large portion of the Leeway Overlee area was included in a 1730 land grant to Simon Pearson and James Going.  The remainder was included in a 1699 grant to John Colville.  Frame houses and cottages built from 1900 to the early 1920s� still stand on 14th and 15th Streets North , North  McKinley Road, and North Nicholas Street, recalling the days of trolleys, horse and buggy, kerosene lamps, well-water, and dirt roads.

Lee Highway, also known as U.S. Highway 29, bisects the Leeway Overlee neighborhood. It began as a dirt road connecting the colonial towns of Falls Church and Georgetown. Its importance grew at the time of the Civil War when it helped to connect military forts defending Washington D.C. In 1923, President Harding dedicated it as the initial segment of the nation’s first transcontinental highway from the Capital to California.

This neighborhood enjoys the combined efforts of two civic associations, The Leeway Overlee Civic Association and the Highland Park-Overlee Knolls Civic Association. Both keep histories of their neighborhoods, plan and execute neighborhood events and are dedicated maintaining the high quality of life its residents enjoy.

Indispensable Real Estate Resource

I first reached out to Mike when he had a listing in the development I lived in at the time.  Three houses (purchased using him) and thirteen years later, we don't consider Mike a real estate agent, we consider him one of our closest, most trusted friends and advisor .  He has helped us redesign the kitchen in our current house, counselled me on renting the two previous properties, recommended an outstanding designer and contractors and provides excellent ideas about enriching the home and great advice. We think of Mike as an indispensable real estate resource who can help with every facet of the home buying and owning experience.

Great Knowledge & Insight

I have lived in Northern Virginia for 15 years now and owned four different properties and have used Mike Pugh for each purchase and sale.  His knowledge and insight of the Arlington/Northern Virginia marketplace has made it very easy to work with him.  He clearly points out ways to realize and increase value, has great vision and a very "green thumb" when it comes to landscaping for curb appeal and our climate.  I highly recommend him to any future home owner that wants to own or sell their real estate in this area.  When it's time for our next home, there is no doubt that I will work with Mike again.

Great to Work With!

We worked with Mike on the purchase of our first home, its recent sale and and the purchase of our  current “forever” house. He was just great to work with on all three transactions. Mike made this stressful process bearable.

Great Initiative

Mike went above the call of duty for me by identifying and successfully bidding for a property that wasn't even on the market - it’s that initiative I appreciate and expect when calling mike for my next move-up home.

We will never make a move without Mike. On a few occasions, Mike talked us out of buying properties we were considering. In the end, he found us the perfect home at a great price. His judgement is sound and he was always there for us.
