Excellent Service

Excellent Service - always returned our calls and good agents/people.

by Dan Bradway on Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville

Sally was great to work with! She answered all of our questions thoroughly, was quick to respond and was very patient. Sally is an absolute professional who has been selling homes for some time....she knows this business and she knows the Richmond market. I highly recommend her!

Highly Recommend

Sally was an excellent relator to work with. Highly recommend her. She was super responsive to any text, call or email I sent her. She is very friendly, easy to talk to, and worked hard to find me a property that I liked.

As first time purchasers living in another city at the time of purchase, I am sure that we were not easy clients, but Sally delivered everything we could have (and did) ask for. Sally shared her knowledge about the market, brokers, contractors and likely issues with homes in our target neighborhoods. She showed homes to our relatives in the area when we could not be there to look ourselves and handled a delicate negotiation process with finesse. What's more, Sally did all of the above with a personal and caring touch, even though we didn't have a blockbuster budget and weren't referred by a personal connection. If we move again, Sally will be our first call.

Sally handled the sale of our Condo in Richmond Va. She listed the property promptly on MLS, held multiple open houses and got a bid 10 days after we put it on the market. I thought this was impressive work. She was always available via phone or email and closed the deal in a timely manner. She was great to work with and was extremely dedicated to getting us to closing. In the words of my attorney "your agent is awesome, one of the best I've worked with." I would highly recommend Sally if you need a top-notch agent.

This was my first time buying a house. I had a lot of questions and a lot of concerns and Sally was right there with me. I purchased a new construction home and it was a long 4 months. And I don't know how I would have done it without Sally. She always quickly responded to my many text messages and phone calls. She was willing to do whatever she could to make the process easier for me. When I needed to make selections for my home, my mom couldn't be there and Sally was there rooting me on and helping me make choices. I would recommend Sally to anyone. I purchased a pretty humble home and she treated me as if I was buying a half million dollar home. I don't think I would ever go through this home buying process again, but if by some miracle I do decide to sell my house, Sally is the first person I will call.

Outstanding Realtor

Sally was an outstanding realtor for us. Her attention to detail, knowledge of the Richmond area, and savvy, strategic home-buying advice was paramount to our success. Importantly, Sally was more than a realtor and acted as an advocate on our behalf. There was no problem without a solution; as stressful as this process can be, it's nice to have someone with seemingly unlimited resources on your side. Add the relatable and personal touches, and Sally provided us with expert service through a personable and kind lens. Questions were promptly answered and requests were consistently met. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Sally was an absolute delight to work with for our first-time home buying experience! I 100% recommend her for anyone feeling intimidated by the process (and to those not feeling intimidated because she's a great real estate agent). She was very quick to respond to any questions we had and her positive attitude helped make the experience much less stressful. Sally really knows her stuff and gave us a list of suggestions of things to think about while doing our initial house search, which was extremely helpful since the process was overwhelming. During one of our tours, we mentioned that there was another house in the same area that we'd also like to schedule a tour for. She was able to get us a tour for that other house right after we finished the current tour (which I don't believe is standard, but her effort was greatly appreciated!) I highly recommend her!

Sally is hands down the best real estate agent that we've encountered. She patiently spent around 8 months working to ensure that we found the best house based on our unique needs and financial circumstances. She is always available and is a great communicator. It helps that she is in touch with the "pulse" of RVA and uses her network of colleagues and community connections to ensure that her clients have facts, resources, and knowledge required to make informed decisions to secure the most successful outcome. Sally is upbeat and a real advocate and cheerleader. There were a few instances during our journey that certainly required that level of support. In the end, we felt as if Sally was not our agent but a friend who took the time to use her professional services and strong communication and people skills to walk beside us during what turned out to be a long journey. Thank you Sally!

Sally did a great job helping us find a new house and also selling my old house. She knows the area and the market and was available pretty much whenever we needed. I highly recommend Sally and her team.
