I can't say enough good things about Reg. He was absolutely instrumental in helping us get achieve our dream of owning a house on a lake. He was very professional. His knowledge of the area was very impressive. He took the time to listen to what we really wanted and to help us see all possibilties. And so very patient. Several times he went beyond the call of duty to help us. On a scale of 1-10 he is a 20. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
Several years ago we engaged Reg Anderson when we were considering buying property on Smith Mountain Lake. We were not ready to purchase immediately, but Reg was very helpful, sending us regular listings tailored to our interests. He was extremely patient as we changed our search criteria several times over a couple of years.
In Oct of 2009, the market appeared to be bottoming and we met Reg for the first time. He took us on a tour of the lake showing us properties, candidly explaining the pro's and con's of each. He was extremely personable with both us and our children, and provided excellent guidance as we decided what course of action to take. Reg never pressured us in any way as we proceeded slowly.
In the Spring of 2010, Reg informed us of an opportunity due to a court ordered sale. During negotiations Reg was invaluable, providing us with contacts for a lawyer and home inspector. He also personally recommended certain fixes that we would not have thought of saving us thousands of dollars.
Both my wife and I would highly recommend Reg to anyone searching for property. It was a pleasure working with him. His local knowledge, expertise, and integrity are truly outstanding.
On two separate occasions Reg spent an entire day with me touring the lake and getting an understanding for the market. Although it took me two years to find the property I wanted an make my purchase, Reg never pushed too hard, and was always willing to make the long term investment in the client relationship. I finally purchased my property at auction, and Reg was there with me the entire time providing guidance and insight. I would recommend Reg without reservation to anyone looking to buy at SML.
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2010 in Huddleston, VA.
I first started working with Reg in January 2010. He graciously accepted the work of marketing my foreclosure property in Huddleston. He was responsive, kind, informative, followed-up quickly, and a blessing to work with. Reg was helpful in every area and answered any question I had (which was quite a lot!). I was thankful for his kindness in helping me. I recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home a Smith Mountain Lake ... one of the most beautiful places in the Creation!
Reg really helped us find and get into a house at SML. He is thoughtful, HONEST, helpful, HONEST, conscientious, thorough, and very knowledgeable about the entire area. He is a resident of the lake, and active in his community. We looked and looked. He helped us define what we wanted, then went on a search to locate it. His patience landed us in the house that was right for us, not just a quick sale for him. After we settled, he helped us navigate the area for all our needs. I am grateful that we were lucky enough to find Reg. Our experience couldn't have been any better (ok, he could have found us a $2M house for $100k, but that is pushing it). We have kept our relationship with Reg even after the sale. He stays in contact with us, provides us with information about the lake, and has helped our friends. We will not buy any property in the Southern Virginia area without Reg by our side!
