Families relocating to Hampton Roads for work duties in this sector are excited to find homes that provide resort style amenities, like those found at Compass 19.

From the Naval Station in Norfolk to Fort Eustis, Langley Air Force Base, the U.S. Marine Corps Forces, the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Yorktown, and NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton Roads caters to the men and women who serve and their families alike.
