Locations You’ll Love.
Most of our team have lived and worked in Richmond their entire lives, which is why our agents are so familiar with the area. And nobody has more insight into the best locations for new and pre-owned homes. We can show you the most desirable communities based on location, taxes, schools, resale values, and more. When you set up an appointment with us, we’ll listen carefully to what you’re looking for and within a day or two provide you with several options for your consideration. And, if you subscribed to our free My Listing Manager service, you’ll automatically receive regular updates on new listings that meet your specific needs.
New Construction? No Problem.
Some families prefer pre-owned homes in established neighborhoods. Others prefer a new home that fits their lifestyle and personal tastes. Unfortunately, some REALTORS® may try to steer you away from new construction simply because they aren’t familiar with the process. Rest assured that we are.
In addition to being a Long & Foster REALTOR®, one of our founders spent four years as a sales and marketing manager for a successful home builder. Today, we work with dozens of quality new home builders. We can help you pick the perfect home, provide tips to avoid costly mistakes, and guide you through the entire new home buying process—from builder selection to financing to construction and closing. With the Jenkins Real Estate Group on your side, we promise this will be the best new home-buying experience you’ll ever have.
Relocating to Richmond?
Good choice. Over the past decade, Richmond has become one of the most popular areas to live, work, and raise a family. In 2017, Richmond ranked 54th in U.S. News & World Report’s 25 Best Place to Live. If you’re relocating to Richmond, we can familiarize you with the area, show you the locations with the best communities and schools, and help you make better buying decisions.
With record low interest rates, many younger buyers have found that it’s much more affordable to own than to rent. As a result, more millennials are buying homes than ever before. But, for those who have never done this before, buying a home can be a very scary process. Our team has helped hundreds of first-time buyers. We can help you find a beautiful home that fits your budget and personal preferences. Plus, we can show you creative ways to finance it, like ARMs (adjustable rate mortgages) or 3-2-1 buy downs—two programs designed to help younger, lower-income buyers purchase a home.
We love working with seniors. Over the past decade, we’ve worked with hundreds of seniors. That makes us very familiar with the special needs most seniors have—such as affordable housing, first-floor master bedrooms, low-maintenance communities, easy access to doctors, convenient shopping, and more. Your needs may be a little different. Call us today at 804.238.4704 and you can speak with one of our team members directly.
