MeetMair Downing

Mair Downing's first home-buying experience was also during a crazy market. Twenty years ago she put in and lost more than 15 offers before she found her beloved Bellevue bungalow. That’s when Mair fell in love with the idea of helping buyers and sellers navigate the sometimes complex world of real estate by listening, harnessing her network and flexing her problem solving skills when needed.

Mair’s never met a stranger, so it’s no surprise if you feel like old friends after the first meeting. If you’re a podcast junkie, check out Obsessed with Homes, where Mair shares the information she’s learned along her real estate journey.

As a mom of two daughters, Mair spends much of her free time cheering for her teens as they butterfly or pump-fake for a win. During downtimes, you’ll find her watching the sunrise from the porch of her Lewisetta getaway cottage with her husband, Daniel, and Havanese, Odie.

What Our Clients Say AboutMair Downing
I cannot speak too highly of Mair'sefforts as my agent. As a first-time buyer, I was definitely a high-maintenance client, but Mair was patient, she's a great listener, she gets to know you and what you're looking for, then she goes to work on your behalf and finds the perfect property for you. She's also with you from beginning to end and that makes a very stressful process much better. - Dave J.
When my wife’s 99-year-old father passed away in August 2021, one of the biggest issues that she (as executor) faced was selling his home. So, as we considered realtors, my primary criterion was who had successfully (and recently) sold a home in the English Oaks subdivision. The only realtor who had done that was Mair— in addition, she managed to sell a home with a very “challenging” decor. When we spoke with her, she exuded enthusiasm, obviously understood the neighborhood and described a clear roadmap for selling the home. An additional factor was that, at her recommendation, we needed to get the home on the market by early November to avoid the typical Thanksgiving-to-New Year’s home sales slump. Mair exceeded our expectations. From the start she made impactful, yet achievable recommendations regarding preparing a home that had been well-maintained, yet lived in for 25 years. And, as needed, she arranged for professionals (e.g., cleaners, someone to power wash, a plumber, an electrician, a stager) to prepare the home and present it in the best possible light. Her professional attitude and attention to detail were very evident. If she didn’t know the answer to a question, she was very quickly able to get those answers. Also, since we lived over an hour away from Richmond, her willingness to drop by the home to deal with issues on our behalf was greatly appreciated. Ultimately, the home was listed in early November, sold (with multiple offers) in 3 days at 7.5% above the listing price, and closed two weeks later. While it’s true we sold in a seller’s market, due to her hard work and outstanding guidance we were able to offer a home that was appealing to buyers. We’re convinced that, without Mair’s assistance, it would not have sold as quickly (or as profitably) as it did. - Mark Metcalf for Mair Downing
