My husband and I used to live in the 1-6th Street side and moved east of Eastern Market about a year and a half ago. We worked with Steve Hagedorn of Coldwell Banker (he himself lives on the Hill at 9th and C, SE) — he was great! I totally agree that the area near Eastern Market has a much different feel than the west side — much more like a neighborhood where people know and talk to their neighbors. Can’t say enough good things about living on the Hill — good luck!!
