This Guy is Phenomenal! Heard about him through an old friend of mine and in that same breath, Travis took on our home-hunt as if we’d been friends for years. Travis built a solid rapport with me by always addressing my fiancée and daughter (by name) when it came speaking on home details. He brings in an exciting energy and never beats around the bush when it comes to knowledge and news that needs to be relayed. We were never in the blind about what was going on. I believe Travis even went into a soggy crawl space without being asked, nice clothes and all. He has character to boot! Look no further if you need an agent, Travis is definitely your guy!
Chris “rescued” my wife and I from a very unresponsive broker who was not getting the job done! Even though there was an oversupply of Fan homes in our selling price range, Chris took over the listing on a Wednesday at the end of June, staged an open house the very next Sunday, kept traffic flowing until we had a contract and CLOSED on September 1st!!!! Incidentally, after the contract was signed, Chris continued to really earn his commission. He worked with the cooperating broker to increase the Buyer’s initial offer enough to cover much of the renovation costs we incurred getting the house ready for market. He lives and owns property in The Fan, loves the neighborhood and is an indefatigable worker on his clients’ behalf. The lucky Sellers will call Chris first!
Chris provided me with a detailed marketing plan for selling my home as well as a checklist of items to take care of to ensure that my home showed well. He also provided referrals as needed to help me take care of small projects. His advertising was well done and all operational items (such as scheduling appointments) went well. The home sold quickly and for the price I wanted. Chris ensured a smooth closing. I was very pleased with his professional demeanor and knowledge.
I bought my house from an agent working for Chris is 2006; Chris was my first call when I decided to sell in July, 2015. He made the entire process seamless from the professional pictures taken of my home and the online exposure provided to the open house, contract negotiation, and actual closing date. He provided honest and professional advice and guidance during all stages of the sale and I was able to move out of town prior to closing with confidence that all remaining steps of the sale would be handled properly. Chris is obviously one of the most knowledgeable and experienced agents in Richmond and he and his team produce the results that buyers and sellers alike are seeking.
I had a very positive experience with Doug. It was a rather unusual situation due to COVID restrictions and I was limited in my ability to assess the property. Doug was very understanding in working with me and other family members who were making the transaction possible. He was also diligent in taking care of some last- minute issues that arose and needed to be addressed with the Sellers. I found him to be competent, caring, and quick to respond to any issues presented. I appreciate his efforts in making this purchase a smooth one from start to finish.
James was very knowledgeable and helpful as a buyer’s agent for someone who is completely new to the Richmond area. He was calm and professional when some of the process took a little longer than desired. He was a tremendous help with finding a home, knowledge of the inspectors, and knowing what to ask for. In all, the home-buying process was made easier and the stress kept to a minimum, for as much as home buying can be viewed as not stressful.
I’ve had experience buying homes and I interviewed multiple real estate agents for my current home. Pam understood my goals and didn’t come on strong with a hard sell, which was refreshing. She was always on the lookout for homes and I felt like I was getting personalized service. My goals changed as the search continued and she patiently supported me the entire way. After a short time, I found my house and I couldn’t be happier. She helped me navigate the closing process and gave me great advice during the inspection. She also gave me contacts to fix minor repairs/updates. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family in the future.
We came to Richmond from out of state and didn’t know much about how the housing market works here, so we were fortunate to have met Tawana Gatling. She really listened to our description of what we were looking for, and took us to a select group of townhouses—one of which turned out to be exactly what we wanted. After we made our decision, Tawana was great at guiding us through the contract process via e-signing. In addition, she referred us to several home inspection companies and helped us find legal representation. Not only that, she also coordinated the home inspection while we were out of town. She was extremely attentive and always kept the process moving smoothly. We always felt like she was on our side. We highly recommend Tawana. She is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.
We highly recommend Small and Associates for all your real-estate needs. Small & Associates managed a rental home for us in Richmond, we have been very satisfied with their professionalism. Chris Small recently sold that same rental property, it was like having a partner working for us!
I cannot recommend a better realtor than Steve Payne! He comes with experience and understanding of not just the buying and selling process but also what to really look for in a house. As a past inspector, he was able to help us mitigate problems before we put our house on the market and when a few issues came back (as they always do), we were able to fix them quickly and cost effectively with his guidance. He also has renovation experience which is helpful when looking at houses to buy for ideas and inspiration. If you are looking to build, he can help you navigate the build process and really advocate for you to make sure your builder is providing you a quality home. I am not one to post shoutouts but buying and selling a house are some of the biggest decisions a person can make and having a quality guide that you can trust will make that experience so much smoother and less stressful. Steve is that guide!
