Funny thing about "down markets", they don't affect the super luxury buyers.  When you have that much money, you don't even have to care.

Good to see there are still healthy sales out there. But then again the luxury market is normally not hurt in a downturn and can actually increase.

Hi Brian,
It is an expensive area.  My brother lives in Great Falls and his business Old Dominion Animal Hospital (thought I'd give it a plug) is in McLean so I get up there ocassionally and am always amazed at the prices.

1200 block of Kirkwood TH for $936k?!!  I remember when the cape cods there were going for $230k.  Ok, so that was 1998, but still - at least those were SFHs with yards.  Wow!

CHARLIE:  You don't even have to travel that far to make a difference -- 10 miles across town can make all the difference in the world in terms of pricing.
