Centrally located in close proximity to the beach, the mountains and Washington, DC, the Richmond metropolitan area has become a millennial magnet. New businesses continue to move here, craft breweries are opening at a record pace, the live music scene is growing and commercial and residential development of both new home construction and historic renovations continues.
As with any city that is growing in size and popularity, your choices can feel overwhelming. Finding someone who knows the area can take some of the pressure off. Home ownership is an important decision – one you will live with for a long time, so working with the right agent is critical. It’s important to work with someone you can trust, someone you can ask any question of, who will dig into the details to enable you to make the most informed decision possible.
