Hampton Roads

There are many real estate agents in Virginia offering buyer and seller services. It is important to use a licensed REALTOR who puts your needs first. We always strive to put the needs of our clients first.  

Homes in Newport News are reasonably priced ranging from less than $100,000 to the mid $500's. Currently the average price of a home in the community is about $170,000. This is an increase of about 3.8% from last year. Prices are expected to continue to modestly climb by about 3% next year.

Rental rates  in Newport News are currently hovering around $1200.

We can also help you in the neighborhing communities of Yorktown, Williamsburg, Seaford, Norfolk, Hampton or Portsmouth. 

Using a smaller real estate company you will get a more personal experience. Local real estate companies such as Keller Williams Elite - Peninsula or REMAX Peninsula can't compete with the personal experience you will receive by working with a small local real estate broker who was born and raised in the community.
