  • 5 star review  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!

    5 star review  We have been using Cabell and his team for many years now, 2010-present. From our first home to our first rental property! He and his team work hard, are knowledgeable, and well connected. We have bought and sold with them and they have made it easy for us each step of the way. We couldn’t imagine using anyone else for our real estate needs!

  • 5 star review  Javier and the Cabell Childress group made my home purchase easy. Javier was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was always available and ready to answer any question I had. He always provided tools and resources to make a better educated decision. I recommend any one looking for a home to seek him out. He will most definitely help you and walk with you through the whole process.

    5 star review  We had tried to sell our house with another realtor two years ago without one single offer & very few showings. After about 5 months, we were so disappointed we took it off the market. Then, we met with Cabell & Jess McLaughlin at our home two months ago. I was very skeptical that it would sell this time either, but we really wanted to downsize. So, we continued to pray. And God definitely answered our prayers when He led us to this group! Cabell Childress is a brilliant man that knows how to sell a house. He left us in the wonderful, capable hands of Jess McLaughlin and our worried were eased. Jess was so friendly and had so many great suggestions. He was in regular contact with us, setting up showings as we toured new homes. He even returned our call on a Saturday while he was out of town! We really appreciated that type of dedication to his clients. Our house sold quickly, over asking price, and Jess helped us find a new home that we absolutely love. Cabell & Jess are the best! We will absolutely recommend them to anyone selling or buying a new home!

  • 5 star review  We recently moved to RVA from out of state. Cabell was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in making our transition smooth. He helped keep us calm during a stressful time given the crazy housing market right now. Cabell was able to help us purchase our home in the exact neighborhood we wanted to be in! We would highly recommend Cabell and his team to all our friends and family, they were all amazing to work with!

    5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Javier during our house buying process, we were so lucky! He took the time to sit down with us during our first meeting to explain the home buying process as first time homeowners. He was realistic with us from the start so that our expectations were clear. Throughout the process he was always accessible & communicative. He worked around our schedules, many times outside of 'normal' business hours. He was extremely patient with us but also aggressive in getting us showings in this high demand market. We had a very short closing window and he helped us navigate all pieces up until closing. We feel we could not have had a better experience.

  • 5 star review  We have bought two homes with Cabell now. The first was a one day showing and we were told by the sellers agent how fantastic he was. The second we were one of 15 offers and somehow he pulled it off again! His negotiating skills, knowledge of the market and long-standing relationships with realtors in the area definitely proved invaluable both times. Thank you Cabell and to your attentive team!

    5 star review  Stephen and Mari are a fantastic team to work with. I have conducted many real estate transactions over the years and their professionalism, attention to detail and customer focus are so far above any other group I've worked with it is beyond words. And to top it off they are super nice people. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

  • 5 star review  I would never consider using any other realtor. I have purchased 5 homes and sold 4 with Cabell. He and his team are very supportive during the process. They will recommend things you can do to differentiate your house from others in the same range. They have amazing partners and resources to help in the buying process. They are highly respected in the community and that never hurts when it's time to negotiate. On our latest purchase we were able to use a combination of their expertise in negotiating combined with strategies from one of their trusted lending resources to land a property that had 16 other offers.

    5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  Jess and Mari were fantastic. We closed on a house within 2 months of first contacting them. Their expertise and advice got us the first house we put an offer on despite this crazy seller's market.

    5 star review  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!
