  • Mike London”I could not speak more highly of the Cabell Childress Group. When taking the head coaching job at the University of Virginia, I had to list my property quickly and I was concerned about the process being a head ache considering the conditions of the real estate market. After having my house listed for only 9 days, the Cabell Childress Group brought me a contract from a highly qualified buyer. The transaction was smooth and care free from start to finish. The Cabell Childress Group is consistently professional, hard working, and diligent and I would be happy to recommend their services to any one looking to buy or sell a home.”

    -Mike London, Head Football Coach, University of Virginia

  • Shawn Barber“We had to sell my child­hood home this winter. We decided to use the Cabell Childress Group and we never looked back, furthermore, we will never look any fur­ther for any of my fam­ily’s future real estate needs! Cabell and his group have exceeded our expectations from day one! The home needed preparation for the mar­ket and Cabell introduced us to his connections of reliable and dependable and reasonably priced service providers from contractors, carpet install­ers, electricians, and HVAC technicians. The Ca­bell Childress Group oversaw all of these projects in order to have the home appropriately presented for the market within a short window of time! As a result of Cabell’s hard work and aggressive market­ing package Cabell sold our home in 13 days! Also, Cabell’s hard nose negotiating skills resulted in us only having to come off the listing price $1,000! Go Cabell! Look no further than Cabell and his Group if you are looking to buy or sell your home in Rich­mond or the surrounding areas!”

  • Chip Spitzer“My wife and I had little success selling our house on Monument Avenue. Cabell took on the listing and, in addition to giving us great advice about pricing strategy and the need for staging, worked hard on our behalf. We sold our house in less than 60 days after Cabell listed it.”

  • Debbie Johnston“I will never look any further than the Cabell Childress Group for my future real estate needs.

  • Michael Turner“Not all places in Richmond are created equally when it comes to selling a house. If you live in downtown or Carytown, selling a house is tough but still doable in this economy. But, selling a house in the suburbs right now tests the mettle of even the best real estate agents. When the market crashed, we knew we were in trouble so we rented our house out for more than a year. But we continued to lose money and finally had to pull the trigger and get out of the house. Thankfully we had the best real estate agent in Richmond on our side. Thanks to Cabell’s ability to market, stage, and price the house, we sold it in less than ten weeks. He reacted immediately to any feedback that was given by agents showing the house and helped us make improvements to the house on the fly. Given that we now live in Colorado, Cabell’s team was doubly important to us. They helped whenever they could, arranged for contractors to fix problems and used their local business contacts to get us the best price on the services we needed. Above and beyond doesn’t begin to speak to the effort of Cabell and his team. When people tell you that he is the best, they mean it. He, and his team, are head and shoulders beyond anything you can expect to get from other agents in the area. Thanks Cabell!””

  • Dean and Ute Edens“The purpose of this letter is to relate the exceptional services provided to me and my wife from Cabell Childress and his group of reality experts.Their professional, aggressive and courteous efforts were instrumental in the sale of our upscale home on Lake Chesdin, Va. and our follow-up purchase of a home in Chester, Va.We had originally listed our house and additional property with a realtor company that we had done business with in the past. The realtor listed our house and waited for someone to call. The realtor did virtually nothing to promote the sale of our home. After 3 years of no offers and very few showings or interest, we decided to remove the house from the market. After a year, we then decided to list the house with a more aggressive realtor. This realtor listed our house on the internet through several sites and created mail out pamphlets/booklets. Again, the realtor waited for his phone to ring and did not aggressively market the sale of our house. As such, we had very few showings or interest and after 2 years we terminated our contract. We were very frustrated with the process of trying to sale our beautiful upscale home and additional property.

    Through a friend we heard about Cabell Childress, after contacting him, Cabell immediately met with us and developed a marketing plan for our house and property. He and his group worked diligently to place our home and additional property on every advertisement venue available. Immediately we were called for showings and within 2 months, Cabell and his group obtained a buyer for the additional property and 3 months later, Cabell and his group sold our house. In 5 months Cabell Childress and his Group were able to accomplish what 2 previous realtors could not in 5 years.

    Their support did not stop with the sale of both our property and house, they worked very hard to help us find a new home. In less than a month, they presented us a house that met all of our expectations and more. We purchased the house and closed within a month of selling our house.

    My wife and I are extremely grateful and appreciative of all that Cabell and his group have done for us in the sale of our house and additional property and finding us our next home. They are truly professionals and experts. Cabell and his Group are “THE BEST REALTORS” in the Richmond Metro Area. We strongly recommend Cabell Childress and his group for the sale or purchase of your home.”

    Tripp Perrin

    ”Dawn and I had originally had our house on the market for nearly 9 months with another agent and then took it off until March of this year. Cabell and his team came in and sold the place within 2 weeks – pretty incredible in this market, and he was a true bulldog negotiating on the buy side. He is aggressive, responsive and I think his success is largely attributable to his longevity in the market and fantastic customer service. Cabell has been a friend for a number of years and he will certainly be my “go-to” agent moving forward.”

    Steve Leighty

    ”After switching to Cabell, we were able to secure an offer on our house in a few short weeks, after months of frustration on the market with another realtor. Cabell knows how to target the right audience and use technology to bring in potential buyers, and his team recognizes that the days of a putting a sign in the yard and hoping people show up to open houses are a thing of the past. The decision to change realtors did not come easily, but once we did, we wished we had made the change sooner.”

  • Eric Morales”Cabell Childress recently guided my wife and me in our search for a new home in Richmond. A handful of friends had used Cabell when they purchased their own homes and all had high praise for Cabell and his team. Needless to say, we were confident that we had found the best realtor to walk us through our home purchase. To our delight, Cabell exceeded our expectations and helped us purchase a home we love. Cabell has a strong passion for real estate and is very knowledgeable of the Richmond market. Cabell’s patience, accessibility, and promptness are a few key differentiators that made our home buying process a seamless and enjoyable experience. His commitment to customer service is unsurpassed and we could always count on Cabell and his team no matter what the situation. In fact, Cabell invited us to his house at nine o’clock on a Saturday night so that we could sign paperwork and still meet a family obligation out of state the next morning. Cabell’s experience was a strong asset at the negotiation table, where he utilized his deep market knowledge to negotiate a favorable deal for us. We strongly recommend Cabell to all homebuyers as his commitment to service, quality, and accessibility is unsurpassed and will ensure a positive and successful home buying experience.”
