In Our Clients’ Words
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!
Getting to work with the whole team at Cabell Childress was the best part of my home-buying experience (with having to actually move being the worst). Taylor answered every one of my questions (and there were a boatload) and ALWAYS quickly responded to my texts or answered my call - in fact I'm 90% sure he answered one time in church because he was whispering pretty quietly. He guided me through the process and was a wealth of knowledge. His expertise really put me at ease and left me no doubts about anything. Mari was amazing and impressed me by assisting with any questions I had as well. At EVERY point I felt like I was their #1 priority. I simply could not recommend Cabell Childress Group any more than I do.

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.
Cabell was recommended to us by close friends and it’s very easy to see why. He knows the market and customer satisfaction is his #1 priority. He and his team were nothing short of professional and got the job done. We would highly recommend he and his team and are very excited to have them on our side as we move forward with purchasing our next home!
- Brian Heslin
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!
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!

As a first time home buyer, I truly appreciate the effort they put into making the entire process as stress-free as possible. Kirsten and Mari were extremely helpful in guiding us from start to finish. I'll definitely recommend the Cabell Childress Group to family and friends going forward!
They are the best for selling and buying a house. You would be hard pressed to find a more qualified team that cares and wants what is in your best interest!!
- Jordan Muse
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.
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.
- Jamey Stone
Cabell did an amazing job helping my wife and I find our home. Cabell made us feel important to him and was determined to find us exactly what we were looking for. We bought our home many years ago and Cabell still checks on us to ensure we don’t need anything. His knowledge of the area and home buying process made our purchase easy. We couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you Cabell!
The Cabell Childress Group guided me through the purchase of a new home very efficiently. Leaving my home of 41 years was hard but they made it much easier. From a great closing to finding the perfect condo was actually achievable. I look forward with much excitement to my move. Dottie Mattox
- Katelyn Coughlan
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 was super knowledgeable about the current market. He made our first home buying experience a breeze. He excelled at negotiations and helping us craft a competitive offer to land us our dream home.
- Naomi Osborne
Cabell Childress Group is the best choice bar none. I was looking to move to Richmond from another city and was connected with Cabell Childress and one of his associates, Kirsten Webb. From start to finish, it was 5 star service and I wouldn't hesitate to send friends or family to them with full confidence that they'll be treated professionally with timely responses and feeling as though they're Cabell Childress Group's only client. These days, it's pretty rare to find a business that keeps their clients' needs as the main priority and that was evident every step of the way with Kirsten. I won't hesitate to use Cabell Childress Group for all of my real estate needs moving forward - superb!
