Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, Robert began his career in sales out of college working for a regional coffee roaster in Northeast Ohio. Soon after, he transitioned to a career in Real Estate; working in both commercial and residential real estate in the Central Ohio area.

In 2009, Robert relocated from Ohio to Richmond in order to be closer to family and to escape the brutal northern Ohio winters. After moving to Richmond, Robert spent 5+ years in commercial construction project management with a French luxury retailer, where he developed a passion for design and architecture. Leveraging his past experiences, Robert began his residential real estate career in VA in 2017. With a talent in home staging and design, Robert’s unique experience both at his previous employers and with his own buying, renovating, and selling of his own homes, has led him to join the Beran residential real estate team. His perspective and eye for redesign, and updating existing homes is a great benefit to both buyers and sellers in the market.

Robert and his husband have enjoyed living in the Museum District, Northside, Church Hill, Bellevue and currently reside in the west end with their 2 rescue pugs. When relaxing, they love to entertain in their midcentury rancher in the secluded Raintree development. Tending to their hidden tropical oasis among the old growth trees is the next best thing to hitting the beach at Topsail Island where their family has a getaway. It has to be mentioned that Robert is a life long suffering Brown’s fan, while his husband David, is from western PA and thus a Steelers fan which makes for entertaining Sunday afternoons in the fall.

“It can be difficult sometimes for clients to think outside the box and see the true potential in a property, I enjoy being able to help clients see the potential possibilities, and hidden value a property may hold”

“For me real estate has been a life long hobby and job that I have been lucky enough to enjoy, being able to share that knowledge and help clients see that vision of what a property could be is the best part of my job”

Fantastic Job

Robert did a fantastic job of finding me a home in a very difficult and competitive market. He was particularly valuable in helping me solve problems post-sale.

Thank you, Robert!

We are so grateful to Robert Batchelor for his work in helping us to find our home. As a first time home buyer, from out of state, on a tight deadline to relocate my mother from an entirely different part of the country, our goal was already ambitious. Add to that a low inventory of available houses, a limited budget, and all of this in the midst of a pandemic; we were in need of a miracle!



Robert was immediately responsive, taking the time to learn our needs and then setting up viewings to fit within our scheduled visits. He drove us all over Richmond and vicinity, helping us to get to know the neighborhoods, teaching us the basics of buying a home, and entertaining my mother as we traveled from house to house. He helped us to avoid some major pitfalls and then prepped us for how to fight for the house that we ultimately wanted. He was always available to answer questions, provide references, and to give his thoughtful and measured advice. I cannot recommend Robert enough!

Highly Recommend

Being from out of state, Robert was indispensable in explaining the purchasing process in VA. He was always available to answer questions, (sometimes twice). He couldn't have been more professional or knowledgeable. Robert also came up with some terrific ideas for my house. He saw possibilities that I didn't. I wound up with a positive experience and feel Robert was a very instrumental in providing that for me.

Extremely Knowledgeable

Robert is extremely knowledgeable about Richmond real estate. He knows how to help prepare and sell your house while finding the perfect new home. He has been instrumental in several home sales and purchases that I have been involved with. He has an eye for the market and knows how to sell a home quickly. In fact, he helped sell our last two homes within 1 day of hitting the market. I highly recommend Robert for any real estate need.

Highly Recommend

Robert was very helpful in properly pricing my home for a quick sale and was able to find a house in the area and price range that we were interested in. He is very prompt in finding information and is readily available to answer questions. I will be using him for my future real estate deals and would recommend him to anyone.

Fabulous Resource!

Robert is very familiar with the area and is wonderful to work with. We are looking for our next home and he has been a fabulous resource for us! He has a great designer's eye as well and was able to give us some great ideas on how to stage our current home when we put it on the market! I definitely recommend him!
