sales And prices up in May

The Median Days on Market in our region is Eight

   Past trends tell us that the Coastal Virginia real estate market picks up in the warmer months. If  recent sales have any true ties to the weather, this summer is going to be a hot one!


Concerns about historically low inventory have plagued local and national markets for some time now, but in May 2021, new listings in Hampton Roads were up 24.74% year-over-year in our region, along with pending and sold sales, according to REIN, Southeastern Virginia’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS). We will continue to watch this trend and provide monthly updates for you.

Can I buy or sell a home

 without a real estate agent ?

Do I really need a real estate agent in today’s market?” 

Let’s be honest. If you’re in the market to buy or sell a home in Coastal Virginia, you’ve probably asked yourself that very question.


Turn on the news, and you’ll hear stories of multiple offers and even bidding wars for homes in our area. You may even have thought… “I could sell my home myself and save a ton of money!”

And the truth is, you don’t legally need an agent to buy or sell a home, but should you use an agent? Now, that’s a different matter.


In my latest blog post, I explore this question openly and honestly. You can find it here →


In the end, you have to choose the path that’s best for you and your family. But whichever way you go, please consider me a resource. Here’s some ways I can help:

  • If you’re a CURRENT HOMEOWNER: I would like to offer you a free, no-obligation evaluation of your home’s current value, so you’ll know what it’s worth in today’s market.
  • If you’re in the market to BUY A HOME: I can add you to my “Insider Access” list. Get the scoop on homes available for sale in our area, before other buyers hear about them!


So let me know how I can help you today or if you have any questions. It’s always great to hear from you.


P.S.  You may wonder why I would give away our time and resources to buyers and sellers who may not hire us. It’s because I genuinely like helping people, and I believe it’s the right way to do business. 


If you don’t choose to work with me today, please think of me for your next real estate  transaction… or refer me to a friend or neighbor looking for a knowledgeable and trustworthy agent. I welcome the opportunity to be of service.

Buy....... Sell..... What's the Right Decision?


This is a question I get asked all the time. I can give you the best advice possible based on my local knowledge, experience, and expertise in analyzing market conditions and statistics. However, there is no such thing as “perfect” advice; it’s impossible to know exactly what’s going to happen throughout a transaction – especially in this market. Together we will discuss these things, and given my advice, you can confidently decide if now is the right time for you to buy or sell. Know that I will guide you through the process, advocate and negotiate on your behalf and help you make necessary adjustments along the way to reach your goal. 


Thank you to all my clients, friends and colleagues who have supported me along the way. This year marks my 13th year in real estate, and it has been my privilege and pleasure to be of service and help so many people successfully buy and sell their homes.


Please don't hesitate to contact me whether you are thinking of buying or selling, have general real estate questions or have a referral.

My promise is to provide you Exceptional Service and Results! 


Enjoy Coastal Virginia Living!
