Amazon HQ2: Who's the Real Winner? | , Long & Foster Real Estate

This summer I had a personal tour of Amazon HQ in Seattle. I was blown away by the size of the company, the number of buildings they own and operate out of, the quality of the work environment for their employees, the number of dogs in the workplace, the average age of the employees, the number of new hires in the last 2 years and the huge increase in housing and rental costs as this company has grown and expanded at an unbelievable rate. I'm super excited to welcome #AmazonHQ2 to Northern Virginia!
