In over two decades as a Central Virginia real estate agent and an associate broker, I’ve come to find a healthy balance. I am passionate about what I do, but am just as passionate (and even more so) about my family! In a world of fast-paced, non-stop living and a very competitive line of work, I’ve found the way to be the best at what I do is to STOP.
Now that may sound counter-cultural, but my personal philosophy is to provide real service to my clients. I take the time to STOP and truly listen to each of my client's needs. I use my experience and expertise to determine the best course of action for their specific situation. Whether a client is concerned about the sale of their home or a first time home buyer, I want to ensure each step of the process is communicated in a clear way, and that we’re all on the same page. I don’t want to provide a generic answer, but a solution that is customized for each client.
My professional balance is found in my foundational support system: my family. I am blessed to have married my wife, Lisa, in 1981, and to have two great children, Andrew and Ashley. I know that at the end of the day, I’ll have their love and support and that makes what I do even more rewarding. Although being in real estate means being on call nearly 24/7, I’ve discovered that taking moments to stop and spend quality time with my family is vital to my personal and professional success! Throughout the years, I’ve been involved with coaching various sports for my son and daughter. My wife and I have also placed a priority on family vacations as that time gives us all an opportunity to reconnect and refresh! Of course, behind many great families is a dog. Ours happens to be a Maltese named Chester, who has seemed to be the missing link that completed the May family!
Because I’ve found a healthy balance, my professional life has flourished. I have worked hard to receive designations that allow me to be more effective in serving my clients. I also am involved with various Real Estate Associations that give me the opportunity to access endless resources and the latest in cutting edge technology and real estate practices. My continual education and forward thinking about real estate keeps me in tune with the industry and provides me with the skills to offer the service that my clients deserve.
Another asset for my clients is my local experience. I was born in Dinwiddie County and haven’t moved since! My knowledge of the area, its neighborhoods, communities and what they have to offer is a key element in matching clients up with the home of their dreams. It also allows me to have an excellent handle on what sellers in the area can anticipate, and I can clearly communicate appropriate expectations to them. I’ve also found my interest in buying homes, renovating them and renting them out gives me a chance to see all sides of real estate. I truly believe that real estate is a savvy investment and enjoy helping my clients experience this personal financial venture as they buy or sell a home in Central Virginia.
I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and learn more about me and my services! I would be happy to answer any questions you have about the Central Virginia Real Estate market or to help you walk through each step of the home buying or selling process!
Brett helped us find our dream first home. He looked over each property with us to make sure we were getting the best deal and not getting problems that we wouldn't be able afford later on. He looked out for us as new home buyers.jld229
