A Local guy with a Passion for Family & Northern VA Real Estate
Northern Virginia real estate agent Alphonso Arnold, Jr. is a local guy (native of the area?) with a passion for God, family and real estate. A 13-year veteran of existing residential and new construction real estate, he knows Northern Virginia like the back of his hand. A graduate of Prince William County schools, he was raised here, educated here and has spent his entire career...here!
14 Year Real Estate Career
Discovering a passion for real estate
Alphonso is a full-time real estate professional who entered the field in 2003 after studying accounting and business administration at Northern Virginia Community College. They say if you do what you love, “you’ll never work a day in your life,” and that’s how it’s been for Alphonso from his very first sales position at ERA Realty in Woodbridge, VA. He steadily advanced in the field, becoming an Associate Broker, first at Jobin Realty in Woodbridge, VA and then Prudential PenFed Realty in Reston, VA (now Berkshire Hathaway PenFed Realty). He developed a reputation for excellent customer service - exceeding client expectations with expert negotiation tactics, skillful pricing strategies, superior local market knowledge (it helps to work where you grew up!) and a knack for solving problems.
A New Focus: New Construction
After nearly a decade in residential sales, working hard for buyers and sellers, Alphonso turned his talent and ambitions toward helping buyers select new construction homes, first as a Community Manager with Richmond American Homes in Reston, VA from 2012-2014 and then as Sales Manager of Augustine Homes from 2014 through 2016. The shift from traditional residential to new construction community sales brought about a new understanding of buyer needs. He helped them find an affinity for a community, sort out pricing and options for lot and home and was a useful resource during the interior/exterior option selections process. Since many buyers came with real estate agents and quite a few without secured financing, attentive customer service required him to negotiate with agents and promote mortgage, insurance, and title companies
