Chesapeake Bay Real Estate

Captain John Smith is quoted to have said about the Chesapeake Bay that “Heaven and earth have never agreed better to frame a place for man’s habitation,” and many who live in the Chesapeake Bay region would agree. Flat land, good soils, and lots of waterfront property, all make this a great place to live.

The Chesapeake Bay is surrounded by miles and miles of shoreline in Maryland and Virginia.  To help you navigate, we’ve separated it into several areas.

Chesapeake Bay region real estate companies are listed below under the areas that they serve.  Please visit their websites for more information on regional properties.
