Andrews Air Force Base is one of the largest bases in the D.C. Metro area. Located just 8 miles from our nation’s capital, it employs about 20,000 military and civilian personnel alike. Don’t be surprised to see the awe inspiring Air Force One flying over on a typical day, where the aircraft is housed. The large presence of the armed forces in the area has created a huge demand for housing in the area market. Those stationed here live in a variety of places stretching from Northern Virginia to Southern Maryland alike.
