Highly recommend using Joe Howren for any real estate needs.

Kirsten Webb was phenomenal. She asked the right questions to understand our needs and then used that information to provide all options that met our criteria. Kirsten was always available to show a property and helped guide us through a very competitive buyers market. Seek out Kirsten to be your agent!

Laura was absolutely amazing from the beginning to the end of my purchase. This was my first home and she helped clarify all of my doubts, she was also available to answer my questions at any time. She has a lot of knowledge in her field and she went above and beyond to make sure I got the perfect home. I am so grateful to her.

Buying our first home, from out of state, and during a pandemic definitely left us anxious and stressed. But Phil and the team at Cabell Childress Group helped us through the process. Phil was exactly the right realtor. He took the time to get to know us and our needs, and streamlined everything to make it an easy and speedy process. As a Richmonder, Phil gave us helpful tips and insider knowledge without swaying us in any particular direction. He provided us with the information we needed to make the ultimate best decision for our family. His upbeat and cheerful attitude kept us relaxed and excited to purchase our first home. The team at Cabell Childress made signing documents, setting up inspection appointments and taking care of all the nitty gritty easy after the decision was made. They didn't just drop the ball, but saw us through beginning to end. We would highly recommend Phil Lawson and Cabell Childress to anyone else searching for homes in the greater Richmond area!

Taylor Mock s a highly professional and dedicated agent who always looked out for my best interest. Impressive availability and immediate response to all my inquiries and viewing requests. Very calm, methodical approach to walking me through the negotiation process which was invaluable in the highly competitive market I was working with. Very knowledgeable of all areas of Richmond and issues to be aware of by neighborhood. I was extremely pleased with my experience.

Kirsten was great to work with. She was our agent when we sold our old home and bought a new home. We chose her over other agents because she was the most knowledgeable about the market and the area our house was located compared to other agents we met with. We felt like she did her research and was well prepared when we did our initial consultation with her. She was also the only agent that we met with who gave us an accurate estimate on what we could sell our home for. We ended up getting $20K over asking price and it was thanks to Kirsten's knowledge and research. She was also always responsive and flexible to our needs. Definitely would work with her again.

Jesse McLaughlin helped us find the perfect home in a city we new nothing about. He guided us through the entire process and made the transaction pleasurable and without stress.

We had the pleasure of working with Taylor Mock on our recent home purchase. As first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and Taylor always made time to explain everything to us. He was quick to get back to us, proactive, and never left us waiting on anything. He also helped negotiate our offer with the seller while he was on vacation in Florida! We were very impressed by his professionalism and dedication to his clients. Cannot recommend Taylor enough.

My dad was looking to sell his house and and Cabell Childress and Phil were recommended to us. We are so glad we reached out to them! In less than 24 hours, Phil came over and was ready to answer all of our questions, tour the house, and showed us the research he was able to complete in a short period of time. Phil is very knowledgeable about real estate processes, the area, the market, etc. He is open, honest, and forthcoming with information, always responding quickly. He guided us through the negotiations, inspections, closing, and helped us meet our goal of closing before the holidays. We are continuing to work with Phil and we all highly recommend him and the Cabell Childress group!

Javier Petriz is an excellent realtor who works with the excellent team at the Cabell Childress Group. During the ongoing difficult real estate market, it took us almost a year to find and buy the perfect house for us. Javier was always professional, patient, resilient, and supportive during the whole process providing excellent professional suggestions and never rushing us on to a decision.

Cabell and the team were great. They were very knowledgable of the city and surrounding areas and listened to our vision/interest. He spent the time to help us find the right property instead of forcing anything on us. I would suggest Cabell for anyone moving to the Richmond area.

Jess McLaughlin did a fantastic job assisting my wife and I in buying our first home. Knowing very little about the home buying process, Jess set us up for success by answering all of our questions and connecting us with a great lender as well. He made the process very easy on us, we showed him the house we wanted and the rest is history. I highly recommend Jess for anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Simply put, the Cabell Childress Group is the best in the real estate business! No team will work harder, longer or smarter to guarantee both an enjoyable and successful transaction. From listing to closing, interacting with this talented, professional team is an absolute delight. I've done three deals with Cabell and his team, so here's my advice: Stop scrolling! Forget the rest and just call the best - that's the Cabell Childress Group!

Taylor was a huge asset when we bought our home 4 years ago and was just as helpful when we decided to sell this year. Taylor is knowledgeable, attentive, personable, and most importantly, great at his job. Taylor's strategy helped us maximize value on both the buying and selling end of our home. Highly recommend working with Taylor!
