While there are many jobs performed by any Realtor, sometimes we have to take on the role of a tour guide and start spouting interesting things about the city, state or region as we work with clients. Many times clients that are not native to the area have heard things (which may or may not be true) or just do not have the overall familiarity with the RVA Metro that a long term Richmonder would. Sometimes we can explain things that might not seem true…and it really helps to have national publications support what we are saying.
This is the page where I list some of those studies/articles/publications. Some of the articles are very much what you expect to hear from the local head of the Chamber of Commerce but a few highlight some interesting facts that really speak to the livability of RVA.
