Working with new construction and builders is a big part of my business. Many of my clients choose to build their dream home in Charlottesville and there are some excellent builder to choose from in our area. As your buyers agent I will help you though the process of finding the perfect building site and working with you and the builder to completion. Many clients do not realize that there is no additional cost to you as builders see the fee paid to a buyers agent as a marketing expense. I have several builders that want to work with me because it helps with a smoother transaction and they know that I have experience in the building process. There are many challenges with building and I have even helped clients in the design of their homes.

Last night we had Thunder Storms in Charlottesville and Crozet. I recently had a client ask me if this was normal weather. Well, this is typical for this time of year. But we usually get a 30 minute thunderstorm in the late afternoon and this is what helps to keep Charlottesville Real Estate green! Oh and yes, we like a little excitement from time to time Have a wonderful Charlottesville Fourth of July!

  Crozet Real Estate Understanding Crozet Real Estate requires understanding Crozet and the Charlottesville area. Crozet is a small town about 15 minutes west of Charlottesville. It is located at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is actually growing vs a lot of areas that are stagnate. Originally called "Wayland's Crossing", Crozet was renamed in 1870 in honor of Colonel Claudius Crozet, the French-born civil engineer who directed the construction of the Blue Ridge Tunnel. Like a lot of areas around Charlottesville this is a small town feel with excellent proximity to hospitals, schools, shopping and parks.

In reading my blog you know that we are building a custom home with my clients in the Charlottesville area with a local builder. The process started with purchasing the lot and then designing the home. This certainly took some time, but it was not long before we broke ground: Well, I stopped by yesterday (acrtually I stop by at least once a week) and the progress is going very well. We are under roof, have windows in and also electrical. This will be one of the largest homes built in Old Trail and it is hard to get a good feel for the size from the photo, but look at the front porch and also we have a full finished basement. We are doing several inspections along the way and it will not be long before we have this fine home finished!
