    What our Clients Say

    Tony Malagon has been prompt at dealing with our issues as tenants. Great service!

    Will Austin has managed several of my properties for 7 years and I have absolutely no complaints. While others I know have experienced poor tenants at some point in time, I can thankfully say this has not been my experience thanks to Will and his team’s ability to select high quality tenants. Recently, I sold two of my rental properties with Will and I was even more impressed with his knowledge of the market, candor, ability to quickly find the right buyers and the ease of the entire process. While selling the first property, Will and his team made the process so easy that at one point I actually thought there was an issue because it was going “too smoothly.” Whether you are looking for property management or to sell, you cannot go wrong with Will and his team. I would give six stars if it was an option.

    We have found the best property management company to care for our condo. This is not our first time using a management company for our rentals. However, it is our first time we experienced the best service with RentSimple. Will, Tony and Abby are phenomenal. They are very professional, responsive and quick to answer any questions we have. We are super happy to find such a great company to work with. Looking forward to a long term business relationship with RentSimple. Thank you so much for being so amazing!

    Bottom line up front: I would use RentSimple’s services again and I would recommend their services to those most loved in my life. From 2012 to 2021 my wife and I used RentSimple as the property management company for our home in Prince William County. BOOM! Mic drop. Not enough? Wait, there’s more. I can say that Will Austin and his team treated us very well over the last 9 years. They took great care in putting tenants in our home and even did the hard work of ensuring the home was looked after and maintained during our relationship. They even assisted us in ways that I didn’t expect. And, the value of their service was great. We didn’t pay an arm, leg, family cow, or first born for their services. Many stars to RentSimple!

    We Know Clifton

    Located just 21 miles outside of Washington, D.C., sits the small All-American town of Clifton, which many D.C. metro area residents consider to be the loveliest town in Northern Virginia. You won't find a traffic light in Clifton, but you will find a classic main street lined with white picket fences, rustic lanterns, and barrels full of colorful flowers.

    With a population of just over 300 people, Clifton is small, quaint, and safe. Residents have a short commute into the capital, and it's a favorite day-trip destination of urbanites from Washington and Northern Virginia's larger cities.


    Location of Clifton

     Clifton is located in western Fairfax County, six miles southeast of Centreville and seven miles southwest of the city of Fairfax.

    The land surrounding Clifton is less developed than nearby areas. The southern and eastern portions of the town are heavily forested, and the northern portion has become an equestrian area.

    Residents who commute generally take the Burke Centre Virginia Railway Express (VRE) to L'Enfant Plaza or Union Station and pick up the metro to their D.C. destination. The main arteries leading out of town can get backed up during peak times, and residents are known for being very strategic when organizing their driving and adjusting their commute times or taking the back roads.


    Population and Demographics

     The population of Clifton is small yet affluent. Estimates put the current population at approximately 310 residents. The median household income is roughly $160,000. The cost of living in Clifton is considered high, with the area's index being 173 compared to the U.S. average of 100. Clinton has no residents living at or below the poverty line. 

    Clifton's residents are highly educated. Almost 70% of adult residents have earned a 4-year college degree, master's degree, M.D., law degree, or Ph.D., compared to the national average of 22% for all U.S. cities and towns.


     Area History

    According to the Town of Clifton's historical information, Clifton was originally known as Devereux Station and was borne as a direct result of the Civil War.

    In 1861, the Union army incorporated the O&A (Orange and Alexandria) railroad company into their military system. Serving as the southern-most point of the Union army, Clifton housed soldiers placed to guard against a Confederate invasion. Frequently troops marched through town, fighting small battles and preparing to set up camp along the creek. 

    After the war was over, Harrison Otis (commonly credited as being the original developer of the town) helped modernize the railroad, and in doing so, he purchased Devereux Station.

    After failed attempts at cultivating grapes in his vineyard, Otis opened a hotel in the building that now serves as the Hermitage Restaurant. The town quickly became a retreat for the wealthy of Washington. Although its previous reputation preceded it as great hunting grounds (George Washington and Lord Fairfax used to ride here on their hunts), its new fame was the saloons, hot springs, and peaceful small-town pace. 

    Clifton became the first community in Fairfax to have power in 1925 with the coming of the Bull Run power company. The first high school in the county was also opened here, with students shuttled in by train. The Buckley store, built-in 1900, was another major factor in the town's growth. Claiming to have "everything from a pin to a plow," the store was later closed and converted into the Heart and Hand restaurant.

    In more recent history, a few of Clifton's most notable guests have included actress Helen Hayes who frequently summered here, Jeff Arch, who wrote his famous screenplay for Sleepless in Seattle in a house on Main street, and Nancy Reagan, who dined here occasionally.

    Events throughout the year, such as Clifton Day, held on the second Sunday of each year, allow tourists to come and enjoy the town. Initially intended for the townspeople to become better acquainted with neighboring towns, as many as 20,000 people come to Clifton Day to enjoy the hundreds of craftsmen, artists, antique dealers, and food vendors. 

    The Clifton Woman's club sponsors an annual Spring Home Tour and Christmas Candlelight Home Tour. In June, the 5K Caboose Run, hosted by the Clifton Betterment Association, fundraises proceeds to donate to local charities. 

    The Community Hall, built-in 1995, is Clifton's most recent addition. It's decorated with four seasonal murals of the town painted by Lee Ruck.



     Clifton boasts of having high-quality public schools. Fairfax County Public Schools serves the Clifton education system. K-6 students in Clifton attend Union Mill Elementary School, while middle and high school students attend Liberty Middle School, Centreville High School, or Robinson Secondary School.


    Things to Do

     Begin your visit in Clifton's historic downtown, less than one square mile in size but packed with small town charm. There is plenty of free parking, and Clifton's walkable Old Town includes restaurants, shops, parks, and many restored buildings from the early 1900s.

    Clifton is also home to Fairfax County's first and oldest destination winery, Paradise Springs.  Serving as the gateway to Virginia Wine Country, this family-run establishment offers tastings, wine tours, and intimate, wine-fueled dinners.

    For rest and relaxation, head for Hemlock Overlook Regional Park, just 2 miles to the west of Clifton. Enjoy a variety of walking trails, mostly by the Bull Run River, as you soak in the park's tranquility. Views of deer are almost guaranteed.


    Home Prices and Trends

    In March 2022, Clifton's home prices were up 14.8% compared to last year, selling for a median price of $907,000. On average, homes in Clifton sell after two days on the market compared to 5 days last year. There were seven homes sold in March this year, down from 13 last year.

    Clifton real estate dates back to 1771, and many centuries-old Colonial homes still line historic Main Street. The completion of the Clifton Heights development in 2003 began attracting new homeowners to the area. 

    Homes for sale in Clifton range from traditional Colonials and European-inspired mansions to charming rambler-style properties; many feature large lots and outdoor living areas.
