Orange Line Madness: The Rosslyn Region

by Dan Lesniak

Dan Lesniak and the Orange Line Team reveal the Rosslyn region in our Orange Line Madness Bracket Challenge. This challenge is our take on the annual March Madness basketball tournament. We took input from top Arlington real estate agents to determine the seeding. Earlier this week we unveiled the Clarendon and Courthouse Region. Today we will unveil the Rosslyn region and in the next few days stay tuned for the Ballstona and Virginia Square Region as well as the Townhome Region. After all of the regions are unveiled we will solicit more input from our pool of top Arlington real estate agents and see which condo or townhome wins the Orange Line Challenge.
