Ratings & Reviews

Sean and I first met in August of 2014, as I was just beginning the search for my first home. I'm a pretty independent guy who researches a lot before I make decisions, so I had a pretty good concept of what was out there and what matched my wants/needs. We met up and I was immediately impressed with his passion for RVA, his knowledge and experience specific to The Fan, and his determination to get me what I wanted.<br/><br/>My requirements were &lt;$150k and in The Fan. Not easy to find a nice place in The Fan for what I was willing to spend, but Sean found me several places that I hadn't seen and immediately arranged for viewings and picked through my preferences. We found a renovated warehouse condo that I fell in love with. Sean connected me with Whitney Watson, an outstanding lender. These two made for a powerful duo that wouldn't accept no as an answer when we ran into difficulties in the purchase.<br/><br/>Due to my colorful credit history and a few other unique aspects to buying this property, we had to have it FHA approved. Sean and Whitney kept the ball rolling during this long and tedious process (outside of our control) and ensured the sellers remained on board. Finally, in January, we received approval and everything went very smoothly from there. I am very impressed with Sean's passion for getting me the home I wanted. It wasn't passion to make a sale, he genuinely cared about me getting this specific place. I feel that I have not only made a great business contact through Sean, but truly a friend too.<br/><br/>Thank you Sean! For the rest of you, be wise and pick Sean to handle your purchase/sell. I promise you that no one will work harder and smarter.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Northern Barton Heights, Richmond, VA.

Sean went above and beyond the call of duty to find our family a house. Sean got to know us and learned our taste and found us our dream house. Through a traumatic closing process Sean made sure that everything was perfect for us by the time we moved in. He is a bull for his clients. We would recommend him a hundred times over. 5 stars indeed!  More Less

Showed home in 2014 in Richmond, VA.

Sean's knowledge of the area in which I was looking, sensitivity to my budget, and his personable nature were the traits that I appreciated most about him during my home search. I will definitely use him in the future and highly recommend him.
